THEME: ARE YOU IN ERROR?
Memorise:
Jesus answered and said unto them,
Ye do err, not knowing the
scriptures, nor the power of God.
Matthew 22:29
Read: James 5:19-20
19 Brethren, if any of you do err
from the truth, and one convert him;
20 Let him know, that he which
converteth the sinner from the error
of his way shall save a soul from
death, and shall hide a multitude of
sins.
Message
After your heart is illuminated by the
light of the glorious gospel of Jesus
Christ, you need to carefully guard
this light, to prevent it from getting
dimmed or extinguished by the
introduction of “another gospel” into
your heart. Guarding against falling
into the error of another gospel
involves being grounded in the
knowledge of God’s truth as revealed
in the Scriptures and yielding your
heart to the Holy Spirit to teach you
the truth of God’s word. We are not
to take a part of God’s word in
isolation nor give personal
interpretation to God’s word, but
rather, allow the Holy Spirit to
interpret the Scriptures with the
Scriptures. This way, what we believe
will always be based on God’s true
word.
I had an encounter with a member of
an organisation that forbids its
members from mentioning the Blood
of Jesus. There are very intelligent
people in that group. In a
conversation with one of them, I
said, “Sir, it is written in Hebrews
9:22 that without the shedding of
blood, there is no remission of sin.
Who do you think is afraid of the
Blood of Jesus? It is only one fellow –
the devil, because Revelation 12:11
says the devil was overcome by the
Blood of the Lamb. Anyone who says
you should not mention the Name of
Jesus or the Blood of Jesus is of the
devil. Therefore, your organisation is
most likely connected with the devil.”
This fellow heard this truth but did
not like it. If you are in a religious
organisation or group where they
restrict your freedom to read the
Bible, you are in the wrong place. If
they tell you that because we are
now in the time of grace, the Old
Testament no longer applies, take to
your heels!
Also, if you find yourself in an
assembly where they cannot mention
the Name of Jesus Christ directly, but
rename Him as “the righteous one”
or “the holy one”, you are in a very
dangerous zone; take flight
immediately! If your place of
fellowship tells you that the Name of
Jesus and the Blood of Jesus are no
longer enough, and that after prayer
in Jesus’ Name, you need to add the
word “fire” or something else, you
are in error. If you are in a place
where they tell you that the Name of
Jesus is too hallowed to be used, and
that in reverence, you should pray to
God in the name of any other
individual like Mary, an angel or a
dead saint, and that these individuals
can act as mediators between God
and man, they are in error. Jesus
Christ is the only Mediator between
God and man (1 Timothy 2:5). Read
your Bible, hold on to the truth and
let no man deceive you.
Prayer Point:
Dear Holy Spirit, I yield my heart to
the truth of God’s word, and to your
teaching of this truth.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: JOB 32-35 and 1
TIMOTHY 5:9-6:2
