False Doctrine: Doublespeak

satan
In Matthew 4:5-6, the devil used Scripture to try to make Jesus sin against God by twisting its meaning

Folks, we must understand and acknowledge that when we see Biblical doctrine being taught and it seems to be moving away from the sound teachings as found in the New Testament, we must warn the believers of a potential landmine. I have come across MODCONSPIRACY’s blog in reference to Dee and the dialogue they had. Dee’s interpretation regarding the End Times [the Book of Revelation] is not just off, but scary off. We as believers are living in unparalleled times and really close to the return of Jesus Christ. 

Jesus wants all His children to know, at least the basics, concerning His second coming. 

Matthew 16:2-3

2 He replied, “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times.

Jesus said in Revelation 1:3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep what is written in it, because the time is near.”

The word “blessed” has the meaning of being fortunate and happy.

The Lord will bless those who read and ask Him for the true understanding of the signs of the times that we are living in regards to the Book of Revelation.

Satan does not want you to understand the End Time events because he wants you to be unprepared and caught off guard. 

Below is Dee’s comment that needs to be shown because as a community of believers in Jesus, we have to help other Christians not step into devastating landmines.


[Dee@Sealed in Christ said]

Let me be clear: I place little to no value on traditional biblical views. Rather, I place value on what the Bible alone has to say. How a person interprets the Bible (myself included) does not make it doctrine. And I will most certainly challenge anyone that refers to tradition as doctrine.

I do not, I never have, nor will I ever quote any extra-biblical resource as a matter of Truth or Doctrine. Nor did I do this in my exchange above. My point in referencing the Didache in the exchange above, was to show by their own words what the first century believers held to in terms of the timing of the rapture – which, as it turns out, is in direct opposition to what that blogger teaches.


Let me be clear: I place little to no value on traditional biblical views.” 

A traditional Biblical view is Biblical as 2 Thessalonians 2:15 says, “So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold to the traditions you were taught, whether by what we said or what we wrote.”

In 1 Thessalonians 2:13, it defines the word traditions as being the same as the Word of God, read below

1 Thessalonians 2:13

“This is why we constantly thank God, because when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you welcomed it not as a human message, but as it truly is, the word of God, which also works effectively in you who believe.”

The traditions that Paul and the rest of the Apostles were verbally spreading before it was written down was the same message of that found in the Bible we have today. 

Indirectly she is saying that she places no value in the Word of God. Either she is confused or cunning.


Now the next thing she says is very interesting.

“Rather, I place value on what the Bible alone has to say.”…..”I do not, I never have, nor will I ever quote any extra-biblical resource as a matter of Truth or Doctrine.”

After she said that she ended with this

My point in referencing the Didache in the exchange above, was to show by their own words what the first century believers held to in terms of the timing of the rapture”

That is what you call a sly of the mouth.

Insight: Sly of the Mouth

When a person starts to say something truthful and finishes in contradicting that in which they started to say. It is done in a subtle way to capture the person for derailment. 

She is introducing to the reader in a very subtle way the Didache which is supposedly the teachings of the 12 Apostles written by an anonymous author. She also says that that is what the early church believed in [“…their own words what the first century believers held to….”]. That is how it is done, to take a person away from Scripture and into extra-unbiblical sources. 

Just because someone starts with what seems to be sound doctrine doesn’t mean they will end their teachings with sound doctrine. We must be watchful, for this is how deception works.

Insight: Deception

A true statement or teaching that is tweaked very slightly to mean something else without the reader picking up on it.

Why Did Jesus Say To Be On Guard Against False Prophets?

wolves

Matthew 7:15-23

15 “Be on your guard against false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves. 16 You’ll recognize them by their fruit. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 In the same way, every good tree produces good fruit, but a bad tree produces bad fruit. 18 A good tree can’t produce bad fruit; neither can a bad tree produce good fruit. 19 Every tree that doesn’t produce good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So you’ll recognize them by their fruit.

21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. 22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, didn’t we prophesy in your name, drive out demons in your name, and do many miracles in your name?’ 23 Then I will announce to them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you lawbreakers!’

What type of damage can a false prophet do to you?

Every false prophet will come to you as a professing Christian [sheep’s clothing]. If he comes as he really is, he will have a very hard time deceiving you because it will be too obvious. They are really like vicious animals [ravaging wolves] which tear at the flesh so likewise, they tear at your faith to shred it to pieces. 

Jesus said that you have to be on your guard. To be on guard is to know the difference between what is the truth and what is false. In Matthew 4:1-11, when Satan tried to deceive/trick Jesus, Jesus only used the Scriptures to combat the lies that were being hurled at Him. What the Scripture does, it exposes what is false and keeps you from believing the lie, keeping you close to the Lord.  

The Lord said that you will be able to recognize them [the false prophets] by their fruits. 

[Bad Fruit] It is the person’s lifestyle based on their beliefs about God. They will teach and preach from what they perceive to be the truth. 

If you compare their fruit with Scripture, it will show you if they believe in the truth or in a lie. A false prophet will believe in a false Jesus, 100% of the time. Their life will reflect a dark path because it is not based on true love [having the Holy Spirit in your heart] but on self. For example, all false religions will disown and hate their friends and family if they disagree with their beliefs.

If a person accepts the Jesus of a false prophet, a Jesus that cannot save, that person will die in his sins. Everything that they do for the false Jesus, praying to him, preaching about him, casting out demons in his name, going to church who are worshipping that Jesus and other ministries would have spent their lives reflecting a false Christ. Instead of following God’s Word and doing the will of God, they would have wasted all their time on earth breaking God’s Word and teaching others to do the same, thinking that they are teaching the truth.

In Judgment Day, Jesus will turn to the ones who worshiped a false Jesus and say to them, ‘I never knew you. Depart from me, you lawbreakers!’ 

“I never knew you” means that Jesus never ever lived in their hearts and had a personal relationship with them because they never called upon the real Jesus but on a false one. 

By worshipping a false Jesus they were lawbreakers, in other words, everything they believed about the Bible was the reversal. What they deemed as the truth, was the lie, and what they deemed the lie, was the truth, thus breaking God’s Word every day.  

Friends, the truth will set you free and it is found only in the Bible. No other material has the very Words of God. If you seek the Lord through His Word, He will reveal Himself to you but if you seek Him through other materials [the Watch Tower magazine, the Book of Mormon, the Qur’an, and Catholic traditions], you will never find the right Jesus. 

 

Wolves (Killers) in Sheep’s Clothing: Teaching Doctrines of Demons

Wolf-leader-sheep-impression
A false teacher leading Christians astray

2 John 1:10

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your home, and don’t say, “Welcome,” to him;

There’s a lot of wolves dressed as sheep and look just like the real McCoy making it very difficult to spot and it’s only going to get worse. I have spotted plenty of them climbing over my fence or wall of protection in a spiritual sense. The Lord put in my heart and has given me the desire to read His Word daily. By reading His Word every day, you develop “Jesus-filtered” glasses that could see the special heat signature only a wolf produces, seeing right through its sheep clothing. How exactly does this work?

The more you get familiar with God’s Word, the easier it is to spot false doctrine. The Greek word for teaching is didaché (did-akh-ay’) meaning teaching, doctrine, what is taught in the whole Bible. If anyone puts on your table anything that contradicts the person of Jesus Christ (His deity, virgin birth and His death and resurrection), how to get saved, the Word of God contains errors, that person is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Do not support or participate spiritually in anyway with a person who has a twisted view of Holy Scripture. The way Satan is going to penetrate your wall and attack you is by first destroying your trust in God’s Word, which is vital in strengthening one’s faith.

Romans 10:17
So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ.

Some of the demonic tactics are to question the New Testament Greek manuscripts and say that the early Christians changed certain words or even that we are using the wrong name of Jesus. In the Greek NT manuscript the name of Jesus is Ἰησοῦς which is transliterated as Iesous which means Jesus but that we should use Yeshua, the Hebrew equivalent and make it seem like you can’t trust the original name of Jesus which in God’s sovereignty, He allowed “Iesous” to be recorded and spread throughout the Gentile nations.

God inspired the NT in Greek. Why? Because it was the predominant language in its day as it was the language of commerce like English is for us today. Satan loves to attack God’s Word because without it you are defenseless like a lamb without a shepherd in the midst of lions and wolves. My brothers and sisters in Christ, read God’s Word daily and through prayer, stay vigilant because just as 1 Peter 5:8 states “Be serious! Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.” Demons have their own doctrine and it will sound pretty close to the original so we must be students of the Word lest we believe in demonic doctrine thinking we’re believing in God’s Word. The enemy of your soul would do anything to make you challenge God’s Word because the result of that would be losing your trust in the Bible you hold in your hands and thus defeating you.
