Do You REALLY Believe The Inspired Word of Almighty God (YHWH), The Bible?

INTRODUCTION:

Many claim to be Christian, but the big questions are:

1. Do they REALLY believe the inspired word of Almighty God (YHWH), the Bible?

2. Do they REALLY try and live their lives in harmony with inspired word of Almighty God (YHWH), the Bible?

3. Do they heed Jesus (Yeshua) Christ command to go make disciples found at Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Authorized King James Bible; AV)?

4. Do they love the things of the world instead of spiritual things; or do they love spiritual things remembering what John 15:19, said, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (AV); and John 17:14, “I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”

5. Do they consider the law of Almighty God (YHWH) more important than the law of man as did the apostles as shown by Acts 5:29, “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” (AV) .

DO THEY BELIEVE THE BIBLE IS INSPIRED?

Inspired word of Almighty God (YHWH), the Bible, clearly states at 2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (AV), but many claiming to be Christian and followers of Jesus (Yeshua) Christ clearly show by their actions that they are insincere in believing this REALITY. How so, they believe what ever their clergyman/clergywomen tells them and never check as recommended by the Apostle Paul at Acts 17:10-11, “And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. 11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (AV).

The REALITY is many are just fooling themself, as it is not what the Bible says, but how religious leaders teach them; to wit, their leaders interpretation of what is written in the Bible. It matters not what the Bible really say. People go by what they are taught by their religious leaders. Take the genocide committed by the Roman Catholic Church at the direction of their supreme religious leader, the pope, what mattered was not that the Bible clearly said at Exodus 20:13, "Thou shalt not kill." (AV), but what their religious leader told them. Therefore, it is their religion which is at fault. Neither in so called Christianity or in other religions are actions really governed in any way by what inspired word of Almighty God (YHWH), the Bible, says, but they are governed by the interpretation of their religious leaders. Thus, knowing this reality, one would be either just plain stupid and/or dumb to even bother looking at a particular religion's holy book and expect the members would conform to it. As India’s greatest historian said, “Take the Rig Vede and find me for example a Hindu actually conforming to it instead of the interpretation given to it by his religious leaders, like looking for a needle in the haystack.” This same REALITY is true in so called Christianity.


DO THEY LIVE THEIR LIVES IN HARMONY WITH INSPIRED WORD OF ALMIGHTY GOD (YHWH), THE BIBLE?

Many claim to be true followers of Jesus (Yeshua) Christ, but they do NOT live their lives in accordance with the Bible so obviously they are not what they and/or their clergy claim to be. They put forth their own beliefs instead of those of Christ and his Father. Just do a quick check on where some of their cherished traditions came from and you will readily see Pagan DNA, i.e., pagan origins. Giving in to these practices is of course a form of apostasy. One Bible dictionary said this of apostasy, and all should carefully the items and practices that constitute apostasy.

“An apostasy among professed Christians was foretold by the apostle Paul at 2 Thessalonians 2:3. He specifically mentioned certain apostates, such as Hymenaeus, Alexander, and Philetus. (1Ti 1:19, 20; 2Ti 2:16-19) Among the varied causes of apostasy set forth in apostolic warnings were: lack of faith (Heb 3:12), lack of endurance in the face of persecution (Heb 10:32-39), abandonment of right moral standards (2Pe 2:15-22), the heeding of the “counterfeit words” of false teachers and “misleading inspired utterances” (2Pe 2:1-3; 1Ti 4:1-3; 2Ti 2:16-19; compare Pr 11:9), and trying “to be declared righteous by means of law” (Ga 5:2-4). While still making profession of faith in God’s Word, apostates may forsake his service by treating lightly the preaching and teaching work that he assigned to followers of Jesus Christ. (Lu 6:46; Mt 24:14; 28:19, 20) They may also claim to serve God but reject his representatives, his visible organization, and then turn to ‘beating’ their former associates to hinder their work. (Jude 8, 11; Nu 16:19-21; Mt 24:45-51) Apostates often seek to make others their followers. (Ac 20:30; 2Pe 2:1, 3) Such ones willfully abandoning the Christian congregation thereby become part of the “antichrist.” (1Jo 2:18, 19) As with the apostate Israelites, destruction is likewise foretold for apostates from the Christian congregation.—2Pe 2:1; Heb 6:4-8;” [source – Insight on the Bible; Vol. I].

One of the items mentioned is the abandonment of right moral standards per 2 Peter 2:15-20, “Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; 16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet. 17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. 18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.” (AV).

Now this would certainly to fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, etc. as stated at Romans 1:19-29, “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,” (AV). And elsewhere in the Bible.

DO THEY HEED JESUS (YESHUA) COMMAND TEACH THE NATIONS?

Let’s approach this subject with an agriculture example. A farmer faces a real challenge. Some months earlier, he plowed his fields and sowed seeds. He watched with great care as the first blades appeared, and he rejoiced as the plants matured. Now all his hard work is rewarded, for the time to reap has arrived. His dilemma is this: The crop is too abundant for him to gather it alone. To meet this challenge, he wisely decides to hire some workers and send them out into his fields. After all, there is only so much time to gather his precious crop.

Likewise, in the spring of 33 C.E., the resurrected Jesus (Yeshua) faces a similar challenge. During his earthly ministry, he sowed seeds of truth. Now there is a harvest to reap, and the crop is abundant. Many responsive ones need to be gathered as disciples. And per John 4:34-38, “Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. 35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. 36 And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. 37 And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. 38 I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.” (AV) . How does Jesus meet this challenge? On a mountain in Galilee, shortly before ascending to heaven, he gives his disciples a commission to find more workers, saying, as recorded at Matthew 28:19-20, ““Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (AV) .

DO YOU LOVE THE THINGS OF THE WORLD INSTEAD OF SPIRITUAL THINGS?

As John 15:19 said of Jesus (Yeshua) genuine true followers, ““If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (AV); and John 17:14, “I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” (AV).

Many claim they love Jesus (Yeshua) Christ, but their actions clearly show that they are not telling the truth as they seek friendship with the world, but genuine true followers of Jesus (Yeshua) know this practice is NOT pleasing to Jesus (Yeshua) Christ and James 4:4 states, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” (AV); And, Romans 8:7, “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” (AV).

REALITY, by definition the spirit of the world or the impelling force that influences human society made up of those who are not servants of Almighty God (YHWH), causing such people to say and do things according to a characteristic pattern. Although people act on individual preferences, those who manifest the spirit of the world give evidence of certain basic attitudes, ways of doing things, and alms in life that are common to the common to the present system of things of which Satan is ruler and god. “Alienation refers to the estrangement that occurs in the relation between an individual and that to which he or she is relating. This break in the relation occurs in a variety of forms, such as the estrangements between an individual and his or her social community, natural environment, own self, or even God. As a psychological and theological notion, alienation has its origins in both classical philosophy and Christian theology…” [source – New World Encyclopedia, http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Alienation].

Being tainted by this spirit of the world is a very serious thing as shown by 1 John 5:19, “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.” (AV). To wit, Satan has fostered a spirit that dominates the thinking and activities of those of mankind who are NOT Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) approved servants. It is a spirit of selfishness and pride manifest in ungodly activities and actively opposing the genuine true servants of Jesus (Yeshua) Christ that is so pervasive that it is like the air that humans breathe. All need to exercise great care not to submit to Satan’s power by letting that spirit mold our lives and carry us off into lust for deviant sex such as adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality, etc.; an inappropriate desire for wealth, hate of fellow man, etc.

Like Revelation 12:9-12 says, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (AV). Since this event, the influence of Satan and his demons has intensified greatly among mankind. His spirit has goaded people to acts of increased selfishness and violence as clearly shown in the daily news.

DO YOU CONSIDER THE LAW OF ALMIGHTY GOD (YHWH) MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT OF MAN?

Many claim to be genuine true Christians, but if they do NOT consider the law of Almighty God (YHWH) superior to that of the law of men as did the apostles as shown by Acts 5:29, “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” (AV) , then, they definitely are NOT genuine true followers of the Prince of Peace, Jesus (Yeshua) Christ. Of course we should follow the laws of men when they do NOT conflict with the laws of Almighty God (YHWH), but when they do conflict, then, the law of Almighty God (YHWH) should take precedence.

Violation of the laws of Almighty God (YHWH), for example, with respect deviant sex and hedonism actually brought down the Roman Empire from within. Now it appears the same is to happen with the United States of America. Its downward trend can be seen everywhere, many in this country are even trying to change the definition of the word ‘marriage’ to an abominable alternate wicked definition, tacitly approving of crooked ways, and their leaders are becoming ever more corrupt and unreasonable. This is the classic example of an increased lawlessness accompanied by a cooling of of love on the part of the greater number as foretold at Matthew 21:11-12, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” (AV). As a leading criminologist noted, “The one thing that hits you in the eye when you look at crime on the world scale is a pervasive and persistent increase everywhere. Such exceptions as there are stand out in splendid isolation, and may soon be swamped in the rising tide.” [source – The Growth of Crime, by Sir Leon Radzinowicz and Joan King, pages 4 & 5, 1977].

The lawlessness referred to in the prophecy includes contempt for the known laws of Almighty God (YHWH), a placing of self instead of Almighty God (YHWH) at the center of one’s life. As a result of this attitude, divorce rates are skyrocketing, sex outside of genuine marriage, and homosexuality are widely accepted, and tens of millions of abortions are performed every year. Such lawlessness is associated with the influence of false prophets, those who set aside Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) in favor of their own teachings. Heeding their philosophies instead of holding to inspired word of Almighty God (YHWH), the Bible, contributes toward a loveless world per 1 John 4:8, “He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” (AV).

CONCLUSION:

Now all need to reflect back on what their religious leaders have taught them and check it against the Standard, the Bible, that Almighty God (YHWH) has provided for us. If what you have been taught is NOT in line with the Standard, the Bible, then, significant changes are in order. Why? Because one needs to get his life in line with Almighty God’s (YHWH’s) requirements even if it means jetting cherished beliefs as ones eternal life depends on it. Jesus (Yeshua) Christ strongly made this point when he said at Luke 13:24, "Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able." (Authorized King James Bible: AV); And Matthew 7:13-14, "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, abroad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." (AV); thereby, clearly showing few would be entering the narrow gate "which leadeth unto life."

In reality, it will be difficult for even true Christians to enter as testified to at 1 Peter 4:18, "And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear." (AV). In order to enter, we must have the right sort of guide, Luke 1:79, "To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace." (AV).

Now, if one picks the wrong group, just because it is popular or the so called 'one to belong to in a community' and not because of Bible Truths, there is an important warning given at Matthew 15:14, "Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch." (AV). In fact, being with the wrong group can mean you are NOT having fellowship with the Son of God, Jesus (Yeshua) as testified to at 1 John 1:6, "If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not [have] the truth." (AV).

This danger is made abundantly clear at Luke 12:32 when Jesus (Yeshua) spoke of his true followers as a little flock and not a large one, "Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." (AV). Simply stated, his true followers will be relatively few in number which should cause all sincere individuals to question whether mainstream religion with its vast membership is heading for the narrow gate!

Of course many will scuff at this REALITY, but Matthew 7:21-23 clearly shows their outcome, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” (AV). All should think about this now and stop supporting unconscionable actions.
