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 I do not publish these details because our mission should be to expose the false teachings not to personally attack the person.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].

The person that’s confessing Jesus is the Son of God, the Lord and the Savior of their life, according to the [Scriptures] mind you, has absolutely nothing to fear. Jesus died on a cross for the sin of the world, and He’s now working on their behalf.

It's a Dangerous Thing

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

While listening to the local “Christian” radio station I heard a pastor say, “It’s always dangerous to take a parable and use it to contradict other scriptures.”

The pastor’s message was on the [Unforgiving Servant] in Matthew 18:21-35.  The parable where one person is forgiven of a great debt, and then refused to forgive another owing him, little. 

The pastor used the words “I think” a few times in his message, offering his own opinion.  I have to admit he did say things about this parable I have not heard before.  After hearing his message I read the parable for myself.  Nothing changed, it continues to give me everything I need to know just the way it is.  The issue here is, the pastor saying “It’s always dangerous to take a parable and use it to contradict other scriptures.”

This pastor believes and teaches the only way for a person to be saved is for them to believe “the Son is God”.  Taking it one step further, he has no choice but to mishandle actual [Scripture] in his attempt to establish “the Son is God”.  Man’s misinterpretation of [Scripture] is where he’ll find no resistance.

Let’s cut to the chase.

I agree with the pastor’s “It’s always dangerous to take a parable and use it to contradict other scriptures.”  Taking it one step further I pray the pastor, and those believing the same as he, see how dangerous it would be to link false teachings to the [Biblical] Yeshua. 

[This] “Christmas” season there’ll be thousands of sermons/teachings heard, linking “the Son is God” to the one born in Bethlehem, the [Biblical] Yeshua.  Those looking to link these two together will have no choice but to contradict themselves if they should choose to use Micah 5:2-5 in their lesson plan.  Not [just] with Micah 5:2 which is quoted often will they contradict themselves, Micah 5:4 is where the line will be drawn. 

I don’t have to “think” about anything here my friends, it is written!!

Micah 5:2

“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.”

Micah 5:2 is a prophecy.  It speaks of the one that is to be born in Bethlehem, “The One to be Ruler in Israel”.  Those believing “the Son is God” will tell you the “One to be Ruler in Israel” is the [Biblical] Yeshua “Jesus”.  I can safely say they’ll be [Biblically] correct if they do.  The [Biblical] Yeshua [is] “the One to be Ruler in Israel”.  Unfortunately, and for those believing “the Son is God,” the “Christmas” story doesn’t end with Micah 5:2.
 
Micah 5:3

Therefore He shall give them up, Until the time that she who is in labor has given birth; Then the remnant of His brethren Shall return to the children of Israel.

Micah 5:4-5 (NKJV)

And He shall stand and feed His flock In the strength of the Lord, In the majesty of the name of the Lord His God; And they shall abide, For now He shall be great To the ends of the earth; (5) And this One shall be peace.

Followers of the Anthanasian Creed, those believing “the Son is God,” have no choice but to do one of two things with Micah 5:4.  They’ll either ignore the words “His God” all together, or they’ll make “His God” appear to be anything else but the [Biblical] Yeshua’s God.  I don’t know how much “thinking” it would take to make “His God” say/mean anything else but Yeshua’s God, I’m just not going to “think” about it… [It is written]!!

According to Micah 5:2-4 “The One to be Ruler in Israel,” the [Biblical] Yeshua, “shall stand and feed His flock In the strength of the Lord, In the majesty of the name of the Lord His God.”

The person “thinking” about linking “the Son is God” to Micah’s prophecy, can’t [see] Micah as a prophet of God.  The [Biblical] Yeshua’s God that is.

The Apostle John in Revelation 1:6 used the exact same words, “His God”.  John was speaking of the one born in Bethlehem, the “One to be Ruler in Israel,” the [Biblical] Yeshua “Jesus,” when he wrote this in what we know today as Revelation 1:6:

“and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” Revelation 1:6 (NKJV)

Here we have in the Hebrew [Scriptures], the “Old Testament,” the prophet of God, Micah, the Apostle John in the New Testament, saying the exact same thing, “His God”.  Hundreds of years between them by the way.

For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus! The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. Revelation 22:18-21 (NKJV)

Just thinking about making Micah 5:2-5 and Revelation 1:6 say/mean something different, concerning the [Biblical] Yeshua that is, this my friends is a [very] dangerous thing to do.  Remember, “It’s always dangerous to take a parable and use it to contradict other scriptures.”

God bless.
In His Care… Jim
