Earlier a brother within this group posed the question to us:
“Why should we take efforts to read and study the Bible and teach others ? What do we lose if we chose not to ?”
I understand he was actually testing the body(in good faith) to make sure they understand the commandment.
Below I have provided a few clips from a recent convo to give some substance also in good faith. The scriptures quote Jesus talkinh to the Father YHWH in regard to the disciples:
Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
— John 17:17
That is one of my very favorite versus of scripture. It is so simple. But so sweet. And so heavy all at once.
The following post in not to point fingers or slander or ridicule but to prove that most dont know what the Word says. And us who have been enlightened with the Truth if the gospel are called to preach and teach and make disciples in all nations. Because the so called “preachers and teachers” that are currently leading the “flock” give evidence that this is the lukewarm church that Yahshua rebukes in Revealation 3
‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do not know that you are wretched and miserable and poor and blind and naked, I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; therefore be zealous and repent.
— Revelation 3:15-19
” I’ve been in communication with a long time friend of mine. Decent guy. Little league football coach. Family man. Overall “good guy”.
But has been taught from guys like T.D. Jake’s. Creflo dollar, fred price and the bunch. And has a warped(perverted view) of Christ and thus the gospel.
This is a little example for some (that may need it) in regards to why WE ABSOLUTELY MUST be in the Word.
Because the world, even the most religious “church loving ” so called “kingdom minded ” people have no idea what the gospel even looks like.
They are under the assertion that because they know and believe in somebody named Jesus they are saved. When in reality the Jesus they think they know is not the Jesus of the Bible at all. But a smooth talking, good looking, well dressed, rich business man that was on vacation for 3 years. (I’m not even making this up)?
So if you got 5 or 10 minutes to spare for a good read and some fellowship, please feel free to comment with your thoughts, insight or opinions on how things I can do to improve my evangelism and facebook ministry.
Iron sharpens iron,
So one man sharpens another.
