The Daily Word of Righteousness

A Fatal Interpretation, continued

Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness." (II Timothy 2:19—NIV)

We have today a fatal interpretation of the Scriptures, particularly of the Epistles of the New Testament. Are there any believers who care enough to search the Scriptures to see if what we are saying is true?

Many outstanding men and women of God have emerged from the Catholic and Protestant denominations, but they have done so in spite of the prevailing doctrine, not because of it.

How much stronger would be the call to repentance if we realized that if we do not repent we will face an angry Christ when we die?

If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. (Hebrews 10:26,27—NIV)

How much greater would be the number of strong saints coming forth from the churches if we taught what the Scriptures state and not our traditions?

Our hope is for the children now growing up in the churches. If we who are pastors, teachers, and parents will go to God and begin to serve Him in righteousness and holiness so the children and young people can see what Christ expects of disciples, we are going to have the finest crop of saints ever seen on the earth.

But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (II Timothy 3:14-17—NIV)

But if we continue making excuses for our conduct, insisting that God does not see our behavior, we are entering an age of horrors, a moral nightmare. There will be no light of good works to guide the steps of those lost in the night.

When the deceived believers die and face Jesus Christ they will not hear "Well done, good and faithful servant" because they have not been good and faithful.

Their teachers deceived them until they no longer could hear the voice of their conscience or understand the Bible.

Will you be one of those who will stand up against the current traditions and begin to proclaim the demands of God?

Therefore this is what the LORD says: "If you repent, I will restore you that you may serve me; if you utter worthy, not worthless, words, you will be my spokesman. Let this people turn to you, but you must not turn to them. I will make you a wall to this people, a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to rescue and save you," declares the LORD. "I will save you from the hands of the wicked and redeem you from the grasp of the cruel." (Jeremiah 15:19-21—NIV) (from A Fatal Interpretation)
