I have been trying to help a young lady in her early journey into Christendom. I did not have face to face contact with her, which may have helped, but I didn’t, and it didn’t.
I could see she was hot for the truth and the ways of the Bible, but I also saw that she was being toss to and fro by many different and varying viewpoints. She eventually succumbs to the onslaught of all the false teachings flowing throughout the world at this time.
I could see her being tossed back and forth. This way and that. I truly tried to help her by giving her the Bible, the Truth.
I saw one major flaw that I could not overcome. Why? Because it was not mine to correct, but hers, which is why she eventually fell.
She could never truly surrender the self. She had to maintain control. It was her way or the highway.
In her last comments to me she embraced a dogma that called for abandoning all of humanity if it didn’t match her skin color. Due to past crimes and lies told by those of the lighter skin color. I believe the core of this belief comes from the woman that desired to test Solomon’s great wisdom and witness his wealth. That woman being the Queen of Sheba.
Many imply, and there was even a movie made about an illicit relationship between them. Yet the Bible doesn’t say anything like this occurred. However, many within the black community say it did take place and thus makes them the true Jewish line. So, they base their place in history and place with God within an action of sin. Which God would not condone or allow or support.
This is just one example of the fables and myths that people create to have their way with the will of God. With how they wish things to be satisfied in their wishes and desires to have what they desire most in this world. A ticket to eternal life.
Nevertheless, this is the furthest thing from true salvation. True eternal life. True belief in God doesn’t use the crimes of religion as an excuse not to follow the teachings within the Bible. True belief in God doesn’t segregate one color of skin from another.
There is a key verse within the Bible that shows how many chose the path of true salvation:
Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV – “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.
Why is the road to hell so broad?
Because most take the easy way. They take the easy excuses not to do what is within the Bible. Why?
Because they wish to dress fancy. They wish to live richly. They wish to feel special. They wish to feel better than others. They desire that they themselves are unique and marvelous.
In Podcast #65 I discuss those that are haughty. Listen to that if you wish details. However, I will key in on some important verses:
Romans 12:16 Amplified Classic – Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty (snobbish, high-minded, exclusive), but readily adjust yourself to [people, things] and give yourselves to humble tasks. Never overestimate yourself or be wise in your own conceits.
Proverbs 3:7 NKJV – Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.
Why they seek after fables and myths is because first off, they have not read the Bible for themselves. Secondly, they desire to be in control of their own lives. They do not wish to surrender all to God.
It is to these people that the letter to Galatians exist. The first topic of the letter is how quickly they have abandoned their salvation and what will occur to those that teach fables and myths:
Galatians 1:6-10 NKJV – I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.
What is the saddest thing of all is how many listens to false gospels. How many listens to fables and myths. It is far more than one would consider or accept. This explains why we are in the age of the lukewarm (Revelation 3:14-22). We are in the end of times before the return of our Savior Jesus Christ. As is seen in what was foretold:
2 Timothy 3:1-5 NKJV – But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
Yet most don’t see this or even realize. Again why? Because they do not read the Bible for themselves as was stated earlier.
Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life.
John 14:6 NKJV – Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
This is the only way to holy eternal life.
Now why do I add the word “holy” in the last sentence?
Because all will have eternal life. Just those that accept Christ as their Savior and strive to be an image of Him will see holiness. But the key is to being an image of Christ is to truly seek to live as He commands within the Bible.
This means living modestly. If we have wealth to keep a majority at hand to help those in need and not to please our own wants and desires. That means no fancy home or two homes. That means no fancy cars or trucks. That means no fancy clothes. Which falls right in line with the words of Jesus Christ Himself:
Matthew 6:19-24 NKJV – “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Aka – money
Many believe with all their hearts they are walking in light. Yet they aren’t. they are in darkness. Not realizing just how dark things are for them, because what they believe to be light is darkness.
But who lives in darkness?
Ephesians 5:1-16 NKJV – Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them. For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Most that believe they are “Christian” actually walk in darkness, in sin. The true definition of a lukewarm. And they wonder why people are saying it is nearly time for Jesus Christ to return.
Nevertheless, they don’t do anything about it. In turn going further into the darkness. Acting as if they are one with Christ yet they go further and further away from Him. This results in the loss of their salvation. Even though they insist that they are fine, and they are a wonderous servant of God through Jesus Christ.
One of the things I have learned as I strive to follow our Savior. I see that most out there that profess to being servants of God, are in actuality servants of themselves. Striving to be wealthy. To have the best of everything. In total and complete opposition to the Word of God.
Revelation 3:15-21 NKJV – “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
The return of Jesus Christ is soon to occur. It is time to make yourself right with God. Follow the Bible and stop seeking after wealth and personal comfort and satisfaction in the here and now. Seek after your treasures in heaven by getting rid of your treasures here in this world.
Seek after the True Gospel and stop listening to fables and myths.
