God CANNOT Lie!
DEAF EARS OF FALSE PROPHETS ARE DANGEROUS! BEWARE!!!
HEED THE WARNINGS OF GOD!
1 Thes. 5:21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. (KJV) . . . Prove all things . . . do not be taken in, do not be a pushover. Do not be misled into supporting a project some say is godly. Do NOT contribute to things you know nothing about. Investigate, check everything out! This goes especially for pastors in the pulpits. BEWARE!!! They can lead you straight to HELL! SO many false teachers!
Hold fast that which is good . . . hold tight to that which is true and genuine. If you find a pastor who preaches the Truth of the Gospel, hang onto him! He is rare in today’s times! He has spiritual ears wide open to hear God speak to him.
2 Thes. 2:1-3 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (KJV) . . . Let no man deceive you by any means . . . they (or we) are not to be deceived, and Paul goes on to warn us.
For that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first . . . in a political sense, but more so in the general desertion from allegiance and loyalty of Christianity; running to false cults that will eventually lead to the great whore of Revelation chapter 17. MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (verse 5).
The devil will bring in errors of all kinds of evil doctrines, and invent new ones introducing both Judaism and Paganism into the churches (1 Tim.4:1-3). It seems Paul was pointing out some of the Catholic creeds, as forbidding marriage to priests, and ordering abstinence from meats on certain days, and at certain times of the year. This was one thing that was to precede the Coming of Christ, another follows, which should take place at the same time . . .
There must be a falling away first. Many interpreters say that this means the apostasy, the rebellion, and I agree, but I think it means more than that.
Paul says that before the Day of the Lord begins, there first has to be a removing. I think that there are two kinds of removing that are going to take place. The first thing that must happen is that the Christian church will depart from the faith . . . that is what we call apostasy. BUT I believe there will be TOTAL apostasy when the Lord comes, and that cannot take place until the TRUE church is removed at the Rapture (1 Thes.4:13-18).
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (KJV) . . . When Jesus says faith, He means that body of truth that He left here. The answer to His question is NO! He will NOT find faith here when He returns. There will be total apostasy because of two things: #1. the church has departed from the faith, it has apostatized and #2. there has been another departure, the departure of the TRUE church from the Earth. The leaving of the TRUE church leads to the total apostatizing of the so-called church. The Day of the Lord cannot begin . . . nor can the Great Tribulation period begin . . . until the TRUE church has left the earth.
WHY? . . . because God has promised to take the TRUE church from the Earth BEFORE the Great Tribulation, BEFORE His wrath is poured out on this wicked world in the last judgment (1 Thes.1:10; 5:9; Rev.3:10). What a tremendous Promise! Thank You Jesus!
My dear friend, the so-called organized church which is left down here AFTER the Rapture will totally depart from the faith. It is prophesied as the great whore in Revelation 17. We see it happening in today’s world! All a person has to do is open their eyes.
From the viewpoint of the world, the removal of believers at the Rapture will be great! They will be glad all those “Jesus freaks” are gone! They do not realize how hard it will be for them, for they are going to enter the Great Tribulation period, and it will NOT be very long before they change their minds. Many shall indeed turn to Precious Jesus to save them! (Rev.7:9-10).
The second thing that must happen is that the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.
And that man of sin be revealed . . . this evil man is still hidden from the world, even though his promoter (Satan), is secretly working, just as he has been from the time he fell from Heaven. Satan’s fall from Heaven is symbolically described in (Isa.14:12-14; Eze.28:12-18). Although both Passages refer to the kings of Babylon and Tyre, they also refer to the spiritual power behind those kings, meaning, Satan. Both these Passages describe WHY Satan fell, but they do not say exactly WHEN he fell. We do know that the angels were created before the Earth (Job 38:4-7). It seems that Satan fell BEFORE he tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden (Gen.3:1-14). So, Satan’s fall, must have happened sometime AFTER the time the angels were created and BEFORE he tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
The son of perdition . . . when this man is revealed the Great Tribulation period will have already begun. Here he is called the man of sin. John calls him the antichrist. John is the only one who calls him that. The Antichrist has about 30 different titles in the Bible. The Antichrist is a subject of the Old Testament (Dan.7:8,11,20,21,,25; 9:26; 8:9-12,23-25; 11:36-45; 12:11). He is going to be Satan's man, who shall revive the Roman Empire. He COULD be in our midst today, but he will NOT be able to come in power or reveal who he is until after the Great Tribulation period begins.
1 John 2:18-23 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. (KJV) . . . . "Last day" is repeatedly used by Jesus (John 6:39-40,44,54; 11:24; 12:48) for the day of resurrection and judgment. There the "last days" and "last time" mean the Messianic age. But it also refers to the time period between Christ’s first and second comings (Acts 2:17; 1 Tim.4:1; 2 Tim.3:1; Jam.5:3; 2 Per.3:3; 1 Jn.2:18; Jude 1:18). We have been living in the ‘last time’ for a long while on man’s time clock. But God’s clock is a whole lot different than ours. “One day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” (2 Pet.3:8; Ps.90:4). In this particular time period, (the last days) in which we now live, God is calling out a people for His Name; "Christians" (both Jews and Gentiles); or the TRUE CHURCH which is headed by Christ! I do not teach denominational doctrines. I teach the Word of God! I believe denominations came from people who could not tolerate the Truth of the Bible. I believe there is just one TRUE church and that is the body of Christ. I believe that once you accept Jesus as your Saviour and Lord, you are in the TRUE church! I believe that all God’s children belong to the TRUE church.
Now we come to another term, used only by John: “Antichrist”. Anti has two meanings: #1. Against. #2. Instead of or an imitation of. The ‘Antichrist’ is referred to many times in Scriptures: Beast (Rev.13:1), Little Horn (Dan.7:8), King of Fierce Countenance (Dan.8:23), Prince (Dan.9:26), Vile Person (Dan.11:21), Willful King (Dan.11:36), Man of sin (2 Thes.2:3), Son of perdition (2 Thes.2:3), that Wicked (2 Thes.2:8,11), Another (Jn.5:43). This man will be the future world leader, (controlled by Satan) in the Great Tribulation. Many think this monster is already in the world.
John also mentions “antichrists” (plural). He states that even then there were many! They have not diminished, they are still very much a part of Christendom today. So, who are these ‘antichrists’? They are false teachers who say they are Christians; and lure weak Christian ‘babies’ away from Jesus! The ones lured away do not possess spiritual ears. These ministers of Satan disguise themselves as servants of God (2 Cor.11:13-15), bringing just enough truth so as to confuse ‘little children,’ but they bring falsehoods, damnable heresies (2 Pet.2:1). Beware, cults are dangerous! http://www.worldlychaos.org/w_c_cults.1.htm
BEWARE, false teachers will take you to the Lake of Fire. (Rev.20:15) http://www.worldlychaos.org/w_c_1_false_teachers.1.htm
These ‘antichrists’ John is talking about were probably members of the churches. John does not say why they left but only that they did leave; and when they left it proved they were never TRUE Christians to begin with. OSAS! Once saved, always saved! . . . http://www.hisservants.org/OSAS_1_eternal_security_h_s.htm
Many people today ‘go to church’ for the wrong reasons. You may belong to the church; have your name on the church roll; but unless you POSSESS Christ in your heart, unless your reason for going to church is Christ-centered, you really do NOT belong to the TRUE church! You can profess to be a Christian all the way to your grave; but God knows the Truth. He knows your heart!
“Unction” is anointing. ALL God’s TRUE children (Jn.1:12-13; 3:3-8, 15-18,36; 5:24; 12:36; 14:6; Ro.8:9,14) have been anointed with the Holy Spirit of God; and this “anointing” abides (lives) in us (1 Jn.2:27). The wonderful part of this is that once we have the Spirit of God, we have Him ‘forever’ (Jn.14:16; 2 Jn.2). God does not give Him to us, then take Him away. OSAS! Once saved, always saved! Once God's child, God's child forever!
“Ye know all things” does NOT mean we have a ‘right now’ college degree in spiritual things, but instead, it means all the ‘things of God’ are potentially ours to know, IF we want to know them. That is one of the many jobs of the Holy Spirit, to teach us; but, we must be teachable! We must want to know! The Holy Spirit is our Teacher, if we listen to Him (Mat.10:20; 16:17; Luke 12:12; John 14:26; 16:13; 1 Cor.2:10,13; 12:3; Eph.3:5; 1 Tim.4:1; 1 John 2:20,27; Rev.2:7,11, 17, 29; 3:6, 13, 22).
The “Holy One” I believe is our Lord Jesus. When we trust Him as Saviour, He then sends the Holy Spirit to us (John 14:16-28).
Those receiving John’s letter knew the Truth. They had the Truth; the Gospel. John was writing to encourage them; but also to warn them of false teachers. “No lie is of the truth.” Lies do NOT come from the Truth. We must be very careful and discern truth from error!
Who is the liar? ALL lies come from the devil! He is the father of all lies (Jn.8:44). A liar is anyone who does not tell the truth. John tells us here that if you deny that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah), you are a liar!
If anyone denies Jesus is the Christ, the Jewish Messiah of the Old Testament; they are also denying God the Father! For Jesus and God the Father are ONE (Jn.10:30; 14:6,9; 2 Jn.9). And to be sure, anyone who denies Jesus does NOT possess the Father, nor are they His child! To acknowledge Jesus is to possess God the Father and have fellowship with Him, and be assured of eternal life (Jn.3:15-18,36; 5:24; 8:24; 20:31; 1 John 5:11-13).
1 John 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also. [KJV]
Apparently the ‘antichrists’ were saying they were loyal to God the Father, yet firmly denying and opposing Jesus, God’s Son. This is going on today also . . . big time! This is a dangerous doctrine; which will lead followers straight to Hell. We must go through Jesus to get to the Father (Jn.14:6). Many cultists today call themselves ‘Christians’ but they absolutely deny the deity of Jesus. JESUS IS GOD! To deny this Truth is absurd! Take CHRIST out of Christian; what do you have left? Nothing!
Some people just do not believe that Jesus IS God! A Baptist pastor emailed me saying: "I believe that Jesus was the spitting image of God, He was God with us, He was the only begotten Son of God, but He was not God."
See our booklet: http://www.worldlychaos.org/w_c_is_jesus_god.1.htm . . . Jesus IS God!
In the end, to know which prophecy is of God rests with the hearer. Staying in tune with the Holy Spirit will help us sense the joy of the Spirit of truth, or feel the grief of the Spirit at the lies. The gift of discernment should be sought by many in today’s evil world.
John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. (KJV) . . . IF you are a TRUE born again believer, you have spiritual ears! IF you do not have spiritual ears, you can receive them when you believe God (1 Jn.5:10-13) and accept Jesus as your Saviour (Jn.3:16).
