Angel of Light?

Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit . . . 2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

I was going to make a blog exclusively about the angel Moroni but since Joseph Smith and Mohammad’s angel show very similar traits, I am going to put them in the same page.

Many religions in this world teach, angels giving them visions. All of which they only witness by themselves. Joseph smith was the only one that saw Moroni the angel in Joseph Smiths visions. Mohamad was the only one that saw the “Gabriel”. Both claim to saw angels of light bringing the true gospel. In order to make a statement to be true in the Bible there has to be at least two witnesses. However, in all the religions that saw such visions saw them alone. (Matt. 18:16; Jn. 8:17,18; 2 Cor. 13:1)

       Matthew 18:16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

     2 Corinthians 13:1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.

Deception is the key to control if you know how to make elaborate lies and make believable fallacies then you are in makings of a great cult leader. This is what most cult leaders have they not only make believable hoaxes but also preached them mixed with truth. Both Islam and Mormonism share the factor of having angels bring them the TRUE GOSPEL. Both of them claim to be from God to bring it to a new era of belief. Both brought the true gospel, or did they? The Bible says “Galatians 1:8 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.” This is a clear warning that there will be an angel from heaven bringing us a different gospel. In addition, we have an instruction of what to do with them, “let them be accursed”. Which means to make them a detestable, separate yourself from them.

I choose only to believe in the witnesses of Christ. The apostles, prophets and Jesus Himself. The only REAL ANGEL of Light is JESUS CHRIST, and when He ascended into heaven, He had three hundred witness to support the claim and all of which testified of His resurrection and return. Therefore, if I were to place my faith on any angel of Light, it would be in Jesus Christ alone.

       2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

       John 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

The guardian of the plates Moroni is not God sent but a delusion from Satan. Every text where our King James Version has their rightful origin and all of them came from men used by God, and all of them were readily available at the time of its use. Now where are these plate?

That will be the next topic for discussion. See next time.

Cults, Introduction

I have come to an epiphany to create certain series of topics to tackle in “Got the Word?” and since in the last of my few articles I wrote about “Christ and Lucifer, Brother?” I would like to continue the trend and write about cults. What is it a cult, what do they believe and how to answer them when you need to do so.

What is a Cult?

A cult is a religion than is considered as unorthodox, spurious, or even dangerous in its belief. As a Bible Believing Christian, a Cult would be a sect that contradicts the teaching of scripture and most often their teaching results into a dangerous form of belief system. The cult itself is not dangerous but what it teaches, a man’s understanding and belief dictates what he or she does. This is what makes cults dangerous. Some cults believe in human sacrifices to venerate themselves, some worship animals as their gods, some teach polygamy is the norm, and some do believe they too can become gods. Absurd right?

What to do with cults?

The first tool to battle cults would be to put on that armour of faith. Cults tend to be very alluring and to grow at a much higher pace than Christianity. It is their enticing words, glaring activities, and promises are the key to their growth however; they do have a weak spot, their doctrine. As Bible believing Christians it is in this area that we excel in, we should use this to our advantage and fight the good fight. I am warning you though, doctrine may be the weak point of cults but that does not excuse us from studying the Bible. Many people in the cults especially cult leaders or strong followers are intelligent people. You should equip yourself with the right knowledge and wisdom to answer every man that asketh the hope that is in you.

What about the people who does not believe the Bible?

We do not have to do anything but preach. Our goal is to deliver the truth and the truth will deliver them. Many do people do not believe the Bible, they would only consider it as just another book. Even so, we just have to preach, or teach, and rebuke at the times we need to. God’s word does not return to Him void, or without any purpose. Those same words will either judge or excuse that person in the day of judgement.

 

The Perplexed Soul

Many a soul there perplexed and lost. We as Christians should be a haste to run and give the wondering soul a rest. The rest is Christ, His love, His salvation calms the raging storm. Binds the heart to a secure foundation. The perplexed soul needs a hand, a hand stretched out to help.

Do not waver, bring the favour from God who shall not differ; so long the soul that wondered takes the hand of the Saviour. Please do be consumed by the fire of compassion for the one who is close to the fire. Break that heart of stone with the hammering image of their damnation.

Perplexed they maybe, souls they will still be. Souls sold under sin, under wrath they seem. Even so their price is so precious that the Son had to give His all to purchase. He redeemed them with His precious life, just as you and me. So be not a slacker to bring the news to ponder.

The perplexed soul not ready, unsaved, without hope, without a future as you were once. Once you where is their position. Lost and dying but gained all through the hand that reached to your perplexed soul. Love the souls as you would love yourself, and as God would have love them.

Why, Grace?

Why, Grace? Is the question I always ask God. Why give me such care, such love, such, compassion when I gave Him none back? Why me? A wretched, unworthy, dirty, rotten, sinner would He give His own life in order to save my own. I could not comprehend, why the God of creation would step down to fix this broken creature. Why, grace?

Grace the expression of God’s love so rich; I cannot write enough words to pen. Grace so marvellous I can’t mutter words to explain. The ocean so wide, the sky to high, the stars twinkle so bright, yet grace still incomparable to them all. Though I be a poet, I can’t find the words, to rhyme; and if I  be a composer the melody of grace is sweeter.

The answer to the inquiry is still a mystery; out of all the mysteries I have come across, none is so magnificent, none is so challenging, none is incomprehensible but grace. I did not write this to give an answer but to surface to the gratefulness in my heart. While I live and breath on this Earth; I steadfastly thank my Saviour who gave grace. Why, grace?

 

Christ and Lucifer, Brothers?

By Joshua T. D.R.
The L.D.S or The Church of the Latter Day Saints will not tell you this upfront but if you bother them enough they will hesitantly tell you that Christ and Lucifer are brothers. They are the eldest sons of God (Elohim). In their doctrine, the two presented their own plan of salvation. The Father preferred only Christ’s plan of salvation, so Lucifer rebelled with the third of the angels in heaven.
Sounds absurd, right? This is only one of many weird beliefs the Moron church has, and is a basis to call it a cult. A cult is someone to teach something that contradicts the teaching of pure scripture. The Moron church has a long history of weird belief all of them came from extra-biblical books that they use, namely the book of Mormon and the Pearl of Great price.
We as Bible Believing Christians should equip ourselves with the knowledge to combat such beliefs. We should be equip with a sharp Sword of the Spirit and strong shield of Faith to keep us from turning to strange doctrines and fables.
Christ has NO, brother. He is the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD (John 1:18, 3:16). The term sons of God in the Old Testament refers to a created being that directly came from God, such as angels (Job 1:6, 2:1, 38:7, which includes Lucifer or Satan) and Adam (Luke 3:38).
In order to believe that Christ and Lucifer are brother you must first ignore the fact that Christ created, everything, through Him, and by Him (Col. 1:15-17). Christ is God and was the hand that moulded creation he is without a “spirit brother”. Although we as Christians are called “sons of God” that is altogether different because we obtain our part in God’s family by adoption (Rom. 8:15. Eph. 1:5).
In conclusion, Christ and Lucifer are NOT brothers. There is no evidence of this in scripture, but can only be taught if you use extra-biblical manuscripts. Fallacy is evident in this teaching and is therefore heresy. You now hold the truth in your hands do not let it slip out, hold it firm.

Bloody Hands

People die by the second, and souls are brought to eternity and written in their destination eternal is damnation (Heb.9:27). But why should this be? Are we not capable of walking with good tidings on our feet? Is it not shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Eph. 6:15)? As we feast with our meals and slumber on our beds souls are burned in hell. Have we, really the words of life? Words that supposedly is better than any and is wiser than all. Why then do we slack? Why then do we not fulfill the commission (Matt. 28:19-20). If we truly believe in the faith of the people that will not obey the gospel (2 Thess. 1:8), why then do we not warn them publickly and house to house (Acts 20:20)? We should be as a fireman on the rescue and not on vacation (Jude 1: 22-23). If we believe souls are pulled down to hell daily, why then do we not warn them hourly?

We the Church have become so lukewarm that God could not bring himself to swallow us in the riches of his glory, but has spewed us out into vanity. We drown ourselves with countless activities though they may not be wrong but are of no value in eternity (1 Cor. 3:11-15). We live as if we own our bodies that was bought back (1 Cor. 6:20, 7:23) from sin to life. We forget that we were redeem to tell others to get redeem.

I wrote this out of desperation but of also inspiration. We have not been doing what we should as the Church. We lack the love for dying souls, we lack the love for God, His words, and His provision. We are apt to profess but not to possess. We have become a stage for hypocrisy and wickedness when we should be the light that shines in darkness. We have created disciples but only to make them worse than we are. Where oh, where have we gone wrong.

I see! Look at your hands, and see! it is stain with the blood of the wicked that have not been warned nor have heard a voice calling them out to the light (Ezek. 33:6). Their blood shall be upon your hands, my hands and ours. For we neglect to send out the warning as a careless watchman not attending to his duties.

Wash that bloody hands with the living water and start all over (Eph. 5:26). Let us not let the sinner die unwarned and uncounted for. Let us strive to be free from the blood of all men (Acts 20:26). Only then can we truly say we have we have fulfilled the commission.

Choose Wisely!

Elections are coming and we are about to choose our leaders in our government. The question remains who is fit for the position for president? What is the criteria for the perfect president? And does it matter?

The truth of the matter is that no one in this world is fit to be leader of any country; due to the fact that we are all corrupt beings because of Sin (Rom. 3:10 & 23). Psalms 116:11 … “All men are liars” Politicians have to lie and cheat in order to rise up to power and even kill if they need to. Now that does not mean no one in the history of this world has been a good leader which only supports the point. None of them are the PERFECT leader.

Man can never successfully govern man. No matter how good the platform of a candidate and how strong a leader he can be he would still fail at some point. The bible has a lot of example of good leaders such as Moses, David and Solomon. Yet none of them were the PERFECT leader. If we look at it one has anger management issues and the other an adulterer and murderer.

Now does that mean the government has no future? We will ever have a perfect leader and perfect government?

Yes, we can! But not at this time and certainly not with sinful human in the office. A perfect government is coming lead by the PERFECT LEADER Himself THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. After Christ ascended and went back to Heaven from his mission to seek and save that which was lost. He made a promise to come back to take His own and rule with a rod of Iron.

He is the PERFECT LEADER the one with no sin but ours to save us. Who was perfect yet took our infirmities and made them His own for us to be made perfect and clean. He who had breathed the world into existence and yet was humble enough to become a man to have fellowship with His creation. He is the only ONE who can and will truly be ever to rule and govern the world perfectly.

And with this theocracy we can enjoy the benefit of having eternal life, joy unspeakable and full pardon of our sins. The only admission you need to do is Repent of your sins and accept Him as your personal Saviour (Acts 20:21) which will save you from the judgement that was meant for you eternally in Hell. Don’t be such a fool, if you have to choose your leader choose Christ. Then whoever is in the presidency will not matter to you. Because you will be a resident not of this earthly and corrupt world but of Heaven. So, choose wisely!
