From One Believer To Another

From One Believer To Another

If this is your first time visiting this blog, “Welcome!”

As you read, I pray you’ll not see me as being angry at anyone. Firm at times with some, I’ll agree with that. I know that no matter what a person has gone through, things they’ve said or done, or still doing for that matter, there’s a 50/50 chance of my having sought forgiveness for doing the exact same thing at one time or another. I know the battle is not against flesh and blood my friend.

Throughout this blog you will find me quoting things heard on the radio. You’ll not find the names of those who said these things in the posts. I do document their names, the date, time, and radio station call sign on my copy of the original document. I do not publish these details because our mission should be to expose the false teachings not to personally attack the person.

If you should continue reading my friend, you will find the Anthanasian Creed being exposed for what it is, a false doctrine. The word of God having the final say. My trusting in He who knows hears and sees all things, the God of the [Bible].

Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,” Ephesians 1:17 (NKJV)

If this is your first time visiting this blog, “Welcome!”

In the precious and beautiful name of Messiah Yeshua “Jesus,” greetings.

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 (NKJV)

Those believing “the Son is God,” this is coming from a pastor that believes the same.  While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard this pastor say, “You are the light of the world.  Someone is following us and we don’t want to lead them in the wrong direction.”  He was teaching its “Christians” that are to preach the gospel, good news, no matter where they are.

As a firm believer [in] Messiah Yeshua, knowing who to follow isn’t an issue.  I need not look any further than the inspired word of God, the [Bible].

Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.” Matthew 4:19-20 (NKJV)

And Jesus passed on from there, and saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” So he arose and followed Him.  Matthew 9:9 (NKJV)

When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.”  Mark 8:34 (NKJV)

Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nest, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.” And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” Luke 9:57-62 (NKJV)

Just as sure as I am with following the [Biblical] Yeshua being the [Biblically] correct thing to do, not being concerned about what people may think is as well.

“Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1 (NKJV) 

Apostle Saul (who is also called Paul) made it perfectly clear in 1 Corinthians 11:1.  Just as he imitated Christ, we’re to imitate Christ, too.

We’re not to be concerned with who’s watching [us] my friends.  Follow the [Biblical] Yeshua.  When you’re following “imitating” the [Biblical] Yeshua, the God of the [Bible] takes care of the rest.  We’re not responsible for what a person does, or does not do, with that which God has placed in our care.  Knowing the kingdom of God is the prize, followers of the [Biblical] Yeshua look forward to what’s next.  Simply put God’s increase is attached to everything Yeshua said, and did.  Follow Yeshua.

“Someone is following us and we don’t want to lead them in the wrong direction.” 

Talk about not seeing the forest for the trees, this pastor is a follower of the Anthanasian Creed.  He obviously doesn’t see himself as one teaching falsehoods.

Does anyone [really] believe the [only] way for a person to be saved is believing “the Son is God”?  Make no mistake about it, those believing “the Son is God” can’t teach anything else but.  Based on my experiences with them, followers of the Anthanasian Creed weren’t even aware of it being part of the package deal they bought into.  Nevertheless, the person teaching “the Son is God” must also teach believing it the [only] way for a person to be saved. 

Needless to say, this method of salvation cannot be in the same conversation with that which is found in the [Bible].  It can, but they’ll not agree.  There’s no [Biblical] evidence of there ever being “the Son is God”.  Its man’s interpretation of [Scriptures], wrongly I might add, causing people to believe it does. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not mad at this pastor, nor those believing the same has he, it’s these things they’re saying.  Better yet the [thing] that’s causing them to say these things, the Anthanasian Creed.  It, and everything attached to it, has been leading people in the wrong direction for the past sixteen hundred plus years.

God bless. 

While continuing to look forward to that which is next, I give thanks to God.  Giving all the praise to that same God, Yeshua’s God and Father. 
In His Care…Jim
