THE PROBLEM

The gross misrepresentation of Lord Jesus in so-called ‘Christianity’ today can be traced to hundreds of years of wrong teaching by false and misguided teachers who misuse the Word of God for selfish ambition and dishonest gain. It is also the result of hard hearted, hard headed, unbelieving, flesh controlled and self-seeking saints, who have fallen in love with this present world and the things that it offers.

To correct the problem, Father’s true teachers need to repent of their unfaithfulness; allow themselves to be filled with Father’s Holy Spirit; come out of hiding; and teach Father’s rightly divided Word with boldness. That means, teaching the whole counsel of God without any selfish motives or ambition; holding back nothing nor adding anything to it, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Father also wants His true saints to repent of our unbelief that has led to our gross unfaithfulness. We need to allow Father’s Holy Spirit to soften our hardened hearts (by whatever means) so that He can again get rid of all the filth and evil in our lives. Only then can we humbly accept the Life changing Word of faith that Father has planted in our hearts; for it alone has the power to save our souls. Therefore, we cannot just listen to Father’s Word; we must also do what it says (by the power of the Holy Spirit, of course). Otherwise, we are only fooling ourselves. (James 1:21-22)

Father’s Holy Spirit started warning us in the first century that just as there had been  false prophets among the people, there would be false teachers among us. Notice how the Holy Spirit went from “false prophets” to “false teachers”. He knew that the Scriptures would be completed and that type of prophet would be no more. (2 Peter 2:1)

We have the prophetic Word of God (the Scriptures) which has been confirmed and completed; and we must pay utmost attention to what is written. The Word of God alone is what the Holy Spirit uses to light our way in this world of darkness. Therefore, everything that is taught MUST agree with what is written. Father’s Word came from His Holy Spirit, not from man. Father’s Word is revealed to us by His Holy Spirit, not by educated man’s interpretation. (2 Peter 1:19-21)

IT IS CRITICAL, that true saints of God; the true Body of Christ realize that most of our Covenant Word was written to us saints; not to so-called gifted leaders of saints with special anointing. As such, each and every one of us is individually responsible to read, study, hear, receive, trust and obey all that is written to us.

IT IS ALSO CRITICAL, that true saints of God; the true Body of Christ realize that regardless of the human mouth pieces, Father’s Holy Spirit is the ONLY teacher of Scripture and the ONLY leader of saints. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God. (Rom 8:14)

The Anointing (which is the Holy Spirit), which all of us have received from Father, lives permanently inside each of us; such that, we have no need that anyone should teach us. The Holy Spirit teaches us the Truth about everything, with no lies mixed in. For this reason, we must never depart from Lord Jesus; but remain in close fellowship with Him, just as His Holy Spirit teaches us to do. We must still search the Scriptures to see if what the ‘mouth piece’ said is what the Scriptures actually said. We must learn to look past the human mouth piece to discern if the Holy Spirit is speaking through them. (1 John 2:27)

Father showed us, through our brother Peter, that even those of us who are called, chosen and belong to Him, can speak by the Holy Spirit (Matthew 16:17) and by Satan (Matthew 16:23).

For this reason brothers and sisters in Christ, we cannot simply believe everyone who claims to speak by the Holy Spirit every time they claim to be speaking by the Holy Spirit. We must test them to see if the spirit that is speaking through them is from Father or Satan. There are many false teachers and prophets in the world and there are many saints who sometimes let their satanic flesh get the best of them. (1 John 4:1)

And now, true saints of God, remain in loyal fellowship with the Living Word, our Lord Jesus, so that when He returns, we may have perfect confidence and not be ashamed at His coming. (1 John 2:28)

Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
