RATTLING RELIGIOUS CAGES
Recently I saw a documentary on Charles Manson.
He gathered a cult following of young people. He influenced this group to murder the actress Sharon Tate and about 8 other people.
How does one control people?
YOU FEED THEM DISTORTED INFO.
YOU GET THEM TO BELIEVE the lie to be a truth.
Lenin said if you repeat a lie long enough people will accept it as the truth!
THERE is an enemy!
HE will use any means possible to steal your soul.
HE is a master deceiver and manipulator.
KEEP NET FOR FISH.
He operates in the religious system.
He twists the truth.
He uses misinformation and omission to deceive!
There is a real and there is a fake!
The enemy has won the battle when the fake believe they are real.
You become ensnared with a fake doctrine.
He steals your soul in this manner.
THE 2 GOSPELS!
I want to talk about the 2 gospels.
The one is the true gospel and the other a false gospel.
It is written in Acts 20 v 24-25 in the NASB.
“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.
PAUL SAYS HE TESTIFIED AND PREACHED ABOUT
1) THE GRACE OF GOD
2) The KINGDOM OF GOD.
What is the Gospel?
It is written in 1Cor 15 v1-4.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
THIS IS THE GOSPEL
Paul got it from Jesus Himself.
1) Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures!
2) He was buried according to the Scriptures.
3) He rose on the third day according to the scriptures.
Let us take it a bit further as we check out ROM 1v16 in KJV.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
THE Gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation.
No prayer can save you!
No church can save you!
No good works can save you!
No laying on of hands can save you!
No altar call can save you!
No amount of giving can save you!
No missionary work can save you!
No tithe can save you!
No worship can save you!
No prophet, pastor or teacher can save you!
No prophecy, preacher or teacher can save you!
ONLY THE GOSPEL WHICH IS THE POWER OF GOD CAN SAVE YOU.
THAT IS THE BELIEF AND DECLARATION THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD.
How can you say this?
Well I don't but the word says in Romans 10 v 9 in KJV
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
HOW DO YOU GET SAVED?
There is no other methodology for access into the Kingdom of God through the gospel of grace!
WHAT IS THE ACTUAL GOSPEL OF GRACE brothers and sisters?
The amazing grace is that God through Jesus has done it all!
That is the true gospel.
The false gospel is when we try to add to the finished work of the cross.
Every time we try to do something we make a mockery of the gospel of grace.
Very quiet in here.
LETS GO a little deeper here.
Let's go to Galatians 1v 6-8
“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Check this out
1) Paul talks about the grace of the Christ/Saviour.
2) Paul talks now about another gospel! A false gospel.
3) It isn't actually a gospel!
It is perverted. It is counterfeit.
4) If anyone, or even an angel from the spiritual world preach anything else. Let them be cursed.
Brothers and sisters, we do not tell you to read the Word because it fills up time in the program.
2Tim2 v15 says
“Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
It says in Matt 24 v 24
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Guys we need to really understand what a great gift we have been given.
Through Yahweh's grace we have been saved healed and delivered.
It says in John 10 v 4-5.
“And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
This exercise is to assist you to hear the voice of the shepherd, sad that you will not hear the voice of the stranger.
