Reformation..The World Is Waiting For It...But, Are Christians Ready?
I am here to defend God's chosen people, and the body of Christ...His Assembly. I strongly believe there needs to be a Reformation. If Christians get hold and firmly believe any doctrine that distorts IN ANY WAY.....a true revelation of God the Father and the Son.... they are building their house on sand and greatly impairing and impeding doctrinal unity in the Body Of Christ.
I believe that Scripture is clear. If you don't have a True revelation of Jesus Christ, you may not know who the Father is! That is why we are commanded to be humble about our knowledge.....BUT TO BE LOUD IN OUR ACTIONS....this is the essence of the warnings in the message of James, a Servant of Jesus Christ. James 1:1.
God has promised that the Lord Jesus would ONLY reveal The Father to whom the Lord Jesus CHOOSES to. What does the Lord Jesus say?
Matthew 11:27 "All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.
This is SO CRITICAL to ETERNAL LIFE as we see in John 17:3.
I sincerely believe that this means that there are people who have a distorted revelation of Jesus Christ and they may not even know the Father ..EVEN AFTER SEEING JESUS CHRIST IN THE FLESH as we see here.
John 14:6..Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. 7" *IF you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him." 8Philip said to Him, "Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us."…
9Jesus said to him, "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; how can you say, 'Show us the Father '?…
* carefully notice the "IF"and pause it is a BIG "IF" ...Therefore....if the Lord Jesus can DOUBT whether people really know Him or not...then, so can we....who follow Him.
He is the True and only righteous Judge appointed by Almighty God...so who are we to Judge? - see Matthew 7:1 in the light of its context.
I am NOT here to claim that I and others are absolutely right, only that...WE BELIEVE...that we are.
Which is what Christian Faith is all about.
We should be Humble servants of Christ, Not Pharisees and cult leaders. These can turn on you like ravenous wolves and/or cause a delay in spiritual growth or hinder the entrance of many into God's Eternal Kingdom by loading the heavy burdens of doctrinal error on the simple that many respected leaders insist...is THE ONLY WAY to be saved. Hmmm?...chapter and verse please? They exalt their doctrine up to a place where it ought not be, and many suffer for it.
This is one reason why the Lord instructed us to pray to Our Father....deliver us from EVIL....daily. There are MANY wolves out there over the internet and in leadership positions....posing as smiling and friendly, and even sincere Pastors.
If we are to obey Jesus Christ and seek His and the Father's Kingdom First and Their righteousness, we must defend the attacks against the integrity of Their Holy Word and Gospel.
Notice how I use the word "their". Once we move into maturity as Christians, the Lord Jesus prays that His body would become ONE... just as the Father and His Son are One; yet Not the Same Being, God and Fully Human Messiah in Perfect Unity according to the Word Of God. So, as a mature people in Christ we need not have to separate them.....UNLESS..we need to clarify their individual distinctions.
If I am talking or writing about General Motors...and you understand that it has two supreme and united leaders ....President and a Vice president. So, If I say or write the heads of General Motors...I do not need to separate the Vice President from the President.....UNLESS...I need to clarify their distinction in my communication.
I write this with humility.... When will WE who sincerely call ourselves Christians....really unite and live like Jesus Christ commands us? The world is watching us....and the World NEEDS TO KNOW...that OUR God is REAL....not by being puffed up with knowledge and wisdom....which are great.....but .."By OUR Deep Love for His Body" and by our fruit of obeying His Gospel.
I believe that Scripture is clear that people will know that WE are His disciples by ONLY those things...NOT.. our mere words or temporary prosperity and human accolades but OUR ACTIONS... and lastly the good news that prophecy tells us it WILL HAPPEN....
"For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, As the waters cover the sea. Hab. 2:14.
