Jesus said, Let the dead bury the dead. No one having putting his hand to the ploy and looking back is fit for the kingdom of God. Mormons and Catholics follow an unbiblical practice. Catholics try to justify the practice with the apocrypha while ignoring the historical inadequacies of those books.
This hits Pentecostals squarely in the face with all their unbiblical gifts of the Holy Spirit. Do all speak with tongues? Of course not. It is the Holy Spirit in 1st Corinthians 12:11 who distributes the gifts, not man.The Jehovahs Witnesses are classic date setters and they have an even worse average than the New Apostolic Reformation.
This next one is wholly Catholic. I wonder if they inquired of Native Americans in regard to the beadwork on those rosary’s? Totally unbiblical. It’s just a form of idol worship to go along with their plastered statues. To round off Part One, evolutionists taking on believers. Do I hear a Big Bang shooting down Darwinism?
What is the difference between a pebble and a rock?￼
Petros or Petra? For each of these words there are multiple forms of definitions. Here, though, I am searching for the meanings of Peter and rock.
Shall we examine Matthew 16:16-18? In these three verses Peter is known as his real name, Simon Peter, Simon Barjona, and finally Peter. Three names in three verses all revolving around the same man. The Lord To clarify whom He was addressing. THOU ART PETER. Catholics claim Peter is the rock in question because of all the other apostles he knew who Jesus was.
Or did he? These are all wrong answers. Jeremiah was an interesting response because- Close But no cigar. Here was the answer and who said it. Simon Peter got the answer right. Or did he? It was revealed to Simon Peter by God. Just as Paul being recognized as the Apostle to the Gentiles by the resurrected Jesus Christ. On his own Peter had trouble putting things together as he did just a few verses later when Jesus revealed to them how he would suffer and die. Peter then rebuked Jesus for that type of thinking. Jesus replied, Get thee behind me Satan.In part two, conversation about the rock.
Without an interpreter? Is that required?Most tongue speaking today is for show, is gibberish, and done by women with no interpreter. Without an interpreter, tongues are not to used. The church is not edified God is not the author of confusion so please let everything be done decently and in order. Praise the Lord!
Catholics & Mormons: Well, we know what Jesus said, But we still have to work our way into heaven or do other things to earn our salvation. They don’t take Jesus at His Word.
They feel they have to something. Instead of boasting on the cross, they must understand the purpose of the cross. Remember, If you have to boast, boast on the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. If we deny Him, He will deny us. IT IS FINISHED!
Once in your lifetime you should be on the church committee that selects the lead pastor for your church. 1 Corinthians 2:1-5 should be your criteria. I once heard a pastor of a church of 50 demand a microphone system. His sermon was good and full of biblical light but it was missing something. It was lacking the Holy Spirit and fire. Jeremiah asked, Is not my word like a fire? At one point Jeremiah was going to give up until- A fiery pastor need not shout but have an intensity for the word of God that freezes the unrepentant in their tracks. These pastors are rare today. Many pastors just read their sermons. Have you ever heard a sermon in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power? You’ll know the difference.
CCC 1375. Strange? I don’t recognize that Bible verse? Just before ingesting the wafer or wine those elements are transformed into the body and blood of Christ. The meaning of transformed is abracadabra. It is Catholic Mysticism where one can speak words into existence which just happens to mean abracadabra in both Hebrew and Aramaic. It is a magical incantation however you want to explain it. How about a section of scripture that DOES mention transforms THREE TIMES?Yes, the very same Satan that our Lord attributed Peter to be.
False apostles and deceitful workers are ones THAT TRANSFORM THEMSELVES INTO APOSTLES OF CHRIST. So false apostles such as Roman Catholic priests and bishops, transform themselves? How? No sweat! So Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. And his ministry can be transformed just the wafer and wine. Satan is behind all this transforming nonsense. Billions of Catholics are being deceived. Evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse deceiving and being deceived.
I know I talk a lot about the Triune Godhead here but it is a very difficult subject to understand. I believe mankind can only get a small measure of it. Here’s another crack at it. You may need to magnify some of this material to get it all. Elohim comes first and then Logos which I shall take up next time.
Which In the beginning came first? Genesis or John? In Hebrew the word beginning means a certain period of time. In John it means Timeless eternity. The Triune God is similar. I accept it by faith. How about 1 John 5:7?
