“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;” Ephesians 4:14.
Too many preachers are not preaching hell hot and Heaven holy. The Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified is about Jesus, WHO He is and WHAT He did, not what we should do. ” Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” 2 Timothy 2:15. We will all give an account to God for how we have divided His Word…divide it justly.
A preacher, teacher, prophet, evangelist or apostle, called of God will preach HIS Gospel, not man’s traditions. If they are not preaching His Gospel, the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Him Crucified, the Word of God says they are accursed (Galatians 1:8). Discern the Gospel you are sitting under. Is it about you plus Jesus or is it about Jesus plus nothing? Is Jesus the Source and the Subject or is your self will the source with Jesus the Subject? These are subtle but powerful differences as one is the Power of God and one the power of man. Study the Word of God out for yourself, not because I or anyone else tells you…you will give your own account, as will I. These are perilous times. No one can teach you the Word of God, you must be able to know it yourself, not what man has told you it says. The Holy Spirit will guide you in to all Truths of His Word if you will “seek ye first the Kingdom of God” (Matt. 6:33.) The Lord has given us preachers, teachers, prophets, evangelists and apostles and their teachings will line up with the Word of God….and if they don’t, they are accursed. Pray for discernment. – Donna Clark Warren
