“Let no man deceive you …”
DECEPTION: “a misleading falsehood”
Have you ever had a dishonest salesman speak with eloquent (persuasive) words,
only to sell you a broken and overpriced item?
Perhaps a solicitor trying to get your credit card information, social insurance number?
Most of us throughout life have come across many people who act and say certain things in order to gain our trust, to therefore rob access to our time, and money.
Folks, these same fiends not only operate in our communities via secular venues
but also in regards to religious and spiritual matters.
They did back then, they do so today.
Peddling the Word of God out of context to form their own personal interpretations
while building profit of the backs of naïve minds.
Some do so willingly, others ignorantly (un-educated).
These liars can be very articulate and expressive while delivering words leading you astray.
And if one is not grounded in truth (Jn. 8:32),
if one knows not the Bible therein (2 Tim. 2:15, 3:16-17)
he or she will purchase an overpriced, damaged/perverted/corrupted gospel
that saves no man from sin (Gal. 1:6-10).
Remember, “even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” – 2 Cor. 11:14.
He pretends to be someone you can trust in order to have you purchase his lies.
“… with vain words:”
“in vain do they worship me,
teaching for doctrines the commandments/traditions of men.” Mark 7:7
Deceivers are liars, hypocrites. They enable all sorts of sin (1Jn. 3:4).
They do so by using vain (futile/useless/pointless/hopeless) words and actions.
This results in people not obeying what God wants us to do in love (1 Cor. 16:14).
Not doing what God commands results in a person being damned eternally (forever),
away from the peace and power of God Almighty,
who’s extreme and justified anger comes to set judgment on His Day (Mt. 24:36).
"be not ye therefore partakers with them"
My fellow saints, do not partake (agree and fellowship) with men teaching/preaching falsehood/error/lies. We are no longer to live in such hopeless darkness.
We were born again, away from sinful/deceitful/vain ways.
"formerly darkness, ... light in the Lord"
What happened between darkness and light?
Salvation/forgiveness of sins happened.
HOW did it happen?
A repentant (change of mind and life)
believer (faith in the risen Saviour, the Son of God)
confessing Christ (publicly, verbally voicing out belief in Jesus)
was immersed in water for the forgiveness of sins (baptism)
by the power of Christ (in His name, His authority),
and therefore added to His kingdom/church
This truth/gospel comes from heaven and not from men.
Anyone teaching you otherwise is a liar, deceiver, vain worshiper, accursed,
knows not God and has not obeyed the gospel of Christ.
Expose them, mark them, avoid them.
Do not put your faith in a Pope, or a thief,
but rather in Him who can send your soul to heaven or hell.
Have you been separated from darkness yet?
Contact us, we love you.
"walk as children of light"
For all who have already decided to follow Christ in His kingdom.
Let us live faithful till the end (Rev. 2:10).
