There are many lies told by many churches that every Christian must be aware of. The church will say, Bible is God’s Word (or) inspired Word of God (or) Bible is Scripture. The truth is, Christ is the Word of God and what God spoke in OT and what Christ spoke are the words of God. The church will say that the teachings of Jesus are only for Jews and God gave Paul for gentiles. The truth is, Jesus instructed to teach all nations to observe all things that He had commanded. The church will say, it is heretical and unchristian to reject Paul but the truth is, we need to follow what Christ taught. Tofday’s church is actually following Paul using Christ’s name. Beware! Believe in Jesus and obey His teachings.
The twenty-ninth chapter of Ezekiel is about prophecy against Egypt. It shall be the lowliest of kingdoms; it shall never again exalt itself above the nations, for God will diminish them so that they will not rule over the nations anymore. No longer shall it be the confidence of the house of Israel, but will remind them of their iniquity when they turned to follow them.
Gentiles must follow the new covenant what Jesus Christ taught (Deut 18:18-19), must not commit any abominations which God expects from all nations (Lev 18:27) and the laws given to Noah for all mankind (Gen 9:4-6).
A quick reference to guide you from not falling into the pit of false teachings by modern churches and denominations that use Paul’s letter even to reject Christ’s teachings!
The gospel preached by Paul is not the same gospel preached by Christ. You have two choices. The popular choice is a wide gate and broad way, where you are saved by God’s grace through faith and nothing is required of you but leads to death, which is the gospel of grace by Paul the Pharisee. The unpopular choice is a narrow gate and difficult path where you had to deny yourself to live holy and righteous that leads to life, which is the gospel of the kingdom of God preached by Jesus Christ. The choice is up to you. Repent, and believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, not Paul.
Fruits of the Spirit is term used only by Paul in his letters referring to the good attributes that will be evident if we walk in the Spirit. However, the fruits mentioned by Paul are very different from what Christ referred as fruits. The core message of Christ was to cleanse the inside of our hearts with zero tolerance towards sin which are from the seed, His Word or His teachings that bears into fruit by obeying them. Hence, it is inappropriate to substitute fruits of the Spirit in Christ’s teaching on fruits or vice versa.
God will judge any nation that is like a pricking thorn to Israel. In 1948, God gathered the house of Israel and the nation of Israel was formed. They will dwell in their own land, build houses, plant vineyards and dwell safely. While Israel dwell safely, God will execute Judgments on all around those who despise them. Whether it ancient Tyre by Alexander or the Invasion of Iraq in 2003 or Syrian civil-war in 2011, these judgments ruined them.
While there are two ways you can become a son in this world, there is only one way you can become a son of God which is by being born of Spirit (or God) and not through adoption. Do you have Paul’s words in your heart, thinking that you are adopted as sons but never being born of Spirit? Or do you keep Christ’s Words to be born of God to enter the Kingdom of Heaven? To be born of God, we must be never sin (1 John 3:9), become free from being slaves of sin (John 8:34-35) to abide in God’s house. We cannot enter the kingdom of God without being born of the Spirit (John 3:5). Do not be deceived! God is not going to adopt you as sons! You must be born of Him!
Christ did not gave anyone authority to change His canon of Scripture. He included only law, Psalms and Prophets which includes only 28 books from Old Testament.
On the day when the Lord judges a nation, just like the unconquered, undefeated fortified island city of Tyre was brought to its knees, God will judge every nation for its iniquity.
