Are We Really Standing on God’s Word?

 I am going to be very strong  because I am fighting for the spiritual lives of the brethren.

Today the various COG groups each have lists of their beliefs, their doctrines; which the elders are required to teach and the brethren are required to accept without question. 

They use those scriptures which taken singly might appear to support their positions and do not put ALL scriptures together on a given subject.  They then reject all scripture that they do not like.  

Recently after viewing a horrendous sermon by Bob Berendt; under the instructions of Jesus  Christ in Mat 18,  I wrote him  on the matter of his trash talking Holy Scripture, in  particular Moses.  

The sermon was given in Edmonton by Bob Berendt on March 12, so everyone there and most of the brethren in Alberta and Saskatchewan are aware of its contents.

Here is the link to Bob’s sermon the offensive material begins at about the 29 minute mark and goes for about twenty minutes more. 

Whether he accepts what I wrote on the subject of the Last Passover of Christ is another issue, my issue with him was his disrespect for the Holy Scriptures. 

The correspondence which continued over several days was unsatisfactory and deeply disillusioning.   He denied that he had said anything negative about Luke even though many had heard him do just that.  His messages were full of contradictions, denials of his conduct and attempts at self justification and he denied that he was trashing Moses.

In the sermon Bob makes the absolutely ridiculous statement that Moses did not have paper and merely made a few impressions on a clay tablet, and then claimed that the scriptures were only oral traditions [referring to the books of Moses] later written out. 

The truth is that it was the Babylonians not the Egyptians who used clay tablets and it was the Egyptians who invented papyrus paper hundreds of years before Moses was even born.  During the life of Moses papyrus paper was very common. 

Moses was on the Mount for a full forty days; TWICE:  and the very Creator God dictated to him the book of Genesis, the commandments, laws, statutes and judgments, the things of the priesthood and tabernacle, the festivals and much else; which Moses then taught all the people and would have written out on papyrus paper or dictated to be written out as Deuteronomy was dictated to a scribe during the last days of Moses.  These writings were then faithfully copied by the scribes continually throughout history!  

Bob goes on with much more trashing of the scriptures even claiming that much scripture was oral tradition for many years and so cannot be understood by the layman.  In his response to me he claimed that he was quoting Paul on oral traditions; when in fact Paul was  not writing about the Holy Scriptures at all, he was writing about the false traditions of the Pharisees which make the Word of God of no effect.

The utterly false assumption that the book of Genesis was simply a recording of word of mouth traditions denies the Direct Inspiration of the very Creator God Himself!  [These attacks on Moses are part of conditioning the brethren for future changes towards evangelicism]  

Bob [and very many others] see their list of Fundamental Beliefs as their ultimate moral authority and are even willing to reject large portions of scripture to maintain the opinions of men.  

Bob has often said: “four hundred elders cannot be wrong” and appears to be absolutely blind as to how appallingly ignorant that statement is.  

Is he condemning himself for leaving the Tkach WCG because the six hundred elders agreeing with Joe cannot be wrong? Is he saying that the 40,000 catholic priests cannot be wrong just because of their numbers?  Such a statement using numbers  in agreement as a supposed evidence of being rightness and Godly  is absolute folly! 

Is he so ignorant of the scriptures that he cannot remember that the vast majority of Israel refused to enter the land?  Were they right because they were the huge majority?  Was God wrong to let then die in the wilderness?  Apparently Bob thinks so.

In rejecting large portions of the Word of God, they have rejected the authors of that Word, God the Father and Jesus Christ. They have exalted their own opinions above the Word of God: That is IDOLATRY just as surely as if they were bowing down to any statue.  

Nevertheless they actually believe that they are being faithful to God’s Word by defending their own opinions about God’s Word, even if they have to reject large portions of God’s Word to defend their own opinions about the Word of God. 

In short they have exalted their own opinions as if they were  God’s Word, above the WHOLE Word of God, and are so full of pride in their own opinions and thinking they are so righteous in their own eyes, that not even God can teach them anything. 

Bob is only following the orders of UCG higher ups in trashing Moses; while he has totally disillusioned me and many others.

Bob seems to be oblivious to the fact that he is doing the bidding of certain leaders of UCG and successfully indoctrinating about two thirds of UCG into the damnable lie that only the Ten Commandments are salvationally required and that all the other laws are only interesting non salvational relics of  the Old Covenant as per Joe Tkach and the Evangelicals. 

In fact this is just what the attacks on Moses ordered by higher ups in UCG are designed to prepare the brethren for;  and what Bob, conned by this faith in the Kubik, Webber, Elliot gang is blind to. 

While the Kubik, Webber, Elliot gang is clearly an evangelical briar in the Assembly, they are leading those who are spiritually lukewarm and tending to be unthinking followers of men, away from God and into the Tkach evangelical error. 

Trashing Moses is a big step in removing the authority of the laws of God; and embracing the Tkach evangelical teachings that only the Ten Commandments are applicable today. 

See how even in 2011 the UCG explanation of the law of God is not about living by every Word of God [as I and the scriptures teach] and is ONLY about the Ten Commandments. 

God’s Law and Sin 

They are pushing the trashing of Moses very hard as they move to transform UCG to the Evangelical persuasion that only the Ten Commandments are salvational today; and my dear friend that I love has been deceived by the men whom he trusts and follows.

Because of their great pride and their feelings of infallibility, otherwise well meaning men are being led astray by the closet evangelicals among them. Well did Jesus say of these men:  

Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

Laodicea is spiritually lukewarm, professing godliness while keeping the commandments according to their own imaginations instead of keeping them the way that God commands. 

They pay lip service to godliness without any zeal to learn and live by every Word of God.  Their zeal is for their own ways and what they think, it is for their own past false traditions and their idols of men and not for what God says. They stand on false past traditions and proudly think they know it all; refusing any spiritual growth they are stagnant or even falling backward in their spiritual condition. 

They are hot for their own traditions, and for the teachings of their idols of men about the Word of God, and cold for zealously keeping the whole Word as God, as God has commanded them.  This mixture of hot for their idols of men and corporate entities, and a cold, lack of zeal to keep the Words of God makes them lukewarm and revolting to Christ. 

They are idolaters of men and the traditions of men; proud, thinking that they know it all spiritually and therefore refuse correction from God or man; they reject the Word of God for their own ways and they reject any growth in truth and refuse to turn from error, going deeper and deeper into error and sin. 

Because these folks have rejected Christ to follow him above our idols of men, they will be rejected by Christ into the correction of great tribulation, in the hope that through the correction of the flesh the spirit may be saved.

3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 3:16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth [They will be rejected by Christ into severe correction] .

Proud and self willed, they think they are spiritually rich and know it all, having need of no spiritual growth, and reject the promised increase in spiritual knowledge and understanding promised for the last days (Dan 12). 

They reject any part of scripture that they do not want to follow, saying it is for others; or that it is not reliable and are so proud they have no idea how spiritually wretched, miserable and poor they really are. 

They are willfully blind to their own condition and to the things of God that disprove their own false ways;  They lack the garments of righteousness and are naked before God,  their many sins exposed to Him; beginning with the sins of pride, stubborn self will,  self justification and self approval.

3:17 Because thou sayest, I am rich [spiritually], and increased with goods [spiritual knowledge], and have need of nothing [no one not even Christ (the Word of God) can tell them anything]; and knowest not that thou art [spiritually] wretched, and miserable, and [spiritually] poor [knowing almost nothing of God as they ought to know it], and blind [willfully blind to their wretched spiritual state], and naked [naked of any true godly righteousness, not being zealous to keep the Word of God]:

Christ counsels those with the Laodicean attitude to buy spiritual gold in the fire of tribulation; that they may become spiritually rich. 

They are bidden to sincerely repent of their prideful sins that the nakedness of their wickedness may be covered by the application of the sacrifice of Christ; so that they may receive God’s Holy Spirit and the  white raiment of the righteousness of the zealous keeping of the whole Word of God. 

They are commanded to anoint their eyes and open them to see themselves as God sees them, and to sincerely repent from their pride and false ways and to turn away from their idols of men and false traditions to follow the spirit of God into all truth; rejecting all error and sin to embrace godly truth that they might be saved.

3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me [spiritual] gold tried in the fire [during the period of your correction in the fire of tribulation], that thou mayest be [become spiritually rich] rich; and white raiment [the righteousness of zealously keeping the whole Word of God], that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness [that our sins might be covered by the righteousness of God] do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see [open our eyes to see ourselves as God sees us, to see ourselves as we really are so that we can repent and be saved].

Jesus reminds these folks that he rebukes them only because he truly loves them and is not willing that they should perish.  They are rejected only because they first rejected Christ, refusing to live by every Word of God, refusing to follow Christ and refusing to live by every Word of God in Christ-like zeal. 

Jesus Christ tells those of the Laodicean attitude; which is the overwhelming attitude in the Ekklesia today;  to REPENT of their pride and self righteousness. and to REPENT of trusting in their idols of men and false traditions. 

Jesus Christ tells us to turn to him; and turn to a zeal for the whole Word of God, to learn it and to keep it; to turn from our false idols and false traditions and to become zealous to remove error and embrace the truth of God! 

3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

Jesus is warning and calling each one of his straying sheep; He wants them to open up to him, to reject idols and to follow him, to be zealous to remove sin and embrace God’s righteous truth, to internalize  the solid meat of the Word of God in fellowship with Christ. 

They have an open invitation from Jesus Christ who is gladly willing to accept them, if they would only open up their eyes and turn to Him! 

3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup [eat; internalize the Word of God] with him, and he with me.

Only those who overcome this Laodicean attitude of pride and self-centeredness will be resurrected to spirit.  Those who sincerely repent of the sins of Laodicea will be in the resurrection to eternal life and will have a place in the eternal government of God.

3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

As the seventh and last assembly, Laodicea has all of the problems of the other churches.  

That is because pride is the chief cause of most of the various problems.  Today professing Christianity and the Brotherhood are full of pride and idolatry, rejecting any biblical thing they do not agree with, as unreliable or applying only to others. 

They think of themselves as the repository of all wisdom and truth, and refuse any zeal to keep the whole Word of God, in order to follow their corporate idols, idols of men and there own false traditions. 

Today the Organizations call the Sabbath and High Days, Holy; and then walk all over them, while claiming that the commandments not to cook or buy food on Sabbath somehow applies to others and not to themselves.  They insist on following the apostate Rabbinic Calendar and refuse to keep the Biblical Calendar of God; even though the proofs are now overwhelming. 

They have almost no understanding of the Festivals, rejecting the true meanings of the Festivals; even claiming that the seven day Feast of Tabernacles somehow represents only one thousand years.  They reject any zeal for living by every Word of God, and insist on a zeal for the corporate idols, idols of men and past false traditions, insisting that people should obey them, above the Word of God. 

Anything not directly spoken by God to Moses was received by direct Devine Inspiration; from the days of Moses through the first century apostles.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

Paul who wrote this epistle was obviously referring to the entirety of the Old Testament as being directly inspired by God.  The word, “inspired,” literally means “God-breathed.” This  implies that the Scriptures are to be considered as directly from the mouth of God.

  1. “Thus says the Lord” occurs 413 in the KJV
    1. Exodus 4:22  And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:
  2. “God said” occurs 46 times in both the NASB and the KJV
    1. Exodus 6:2-3   And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH [YHVH] was I not known to them.
  3. God spoke through prophets
    1. 1 Kings 14:18, “And all Israel buried him and mourned for him, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke through His servant Ahijah the prophet.”
    2. 2 Sam. 24:11-12, “When David arose in the morning, the word of the Lord came to the prophet Gad, David’s seer, saying, 12 ‘Go and speak to David, Thus the Lord says, “I am offering you three things; choose for yourself one of them, which I may do to you.'”
    3. Zechariah 7:7, “Are not these the words which the Lord proclaimed by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and prosperous with its cities around it, and the Negev and the foothills were inhabited?”
  4. The Spirit of the Lord spoke through people
    1. 2 Samuel 23:2, “The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, and His word was on my tongue.”
    2. 1 Kings 22:24, “Then Zedekiah the son of Chenaanah came near and struck Micaiah on the cheek and said, ‘How did the Spirit of the Lord pass from me to speak to you?'”
    3. 2 Chronicles 20:14-15, “Then in the midst of the assembly the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah, the son of Benaiah, the son of Jeiel, the son of Mattaniah, the Levite of the sons of Asaph; 15 and he said, ‘Listen, all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem and King Jehoshaphat: thus says the Lord to you, Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s.'”

As you can see, the Scriptures are clearly full of statements showing the inspiration of God through the writers. The Scriptures are divinely inspired.  The Holy Scriptures are the absolute literal Words of God Almighty! 

True some times there are translation issues [sometimes deliberate mistranslations] and for that God has given us two Fail Safe’s:

1.   We are to put all scriptures on any given subject together to see the whole intended meaning:   

Isaiah 28:10  For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

Isaiah 28:13  But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

2.   The gift of the Holy Spirit to those who obey the Word of God (Acts 5:31) which will lead those who live by every Word of God into the truth of God.

Acts 5:32   And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
John 16:13   Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Remember  that the KJV is based on the “Textus Receptus” and that the evangelical versions [including the NKJV]  based on Westcott and Hort, were channeled to them by demons  during séances with Madame Blavatsky,  the sources.  See Battle of the Bibles for much more. 

Remember that it was the Babylonians not the Egyptians who used clay tablets; and it was the Egyptians who invented papyrus paper hundreds of years before Moses was even born.  During the life of Moses papyrus paper was very commonly used. 

Moses was on the Mount for a full forty days; TWICE:  and the very Creator God dictated to him the book of Genesis, the commandments, laws, statutes and judgments, the things of the priesthood and tabernacle, the festivals and much else; which Moses then taught all the people and wrote out on papyrus paper. 

These writings were either dictated directly by God or were God Inspired and were not the recording of oral traditions be Moses.

The utterly false assumption that the book of Genesis was simply a recording of word of mouth traditions is laughable nonsense and denies the Direct Inspiration of the very Creator God Himself!

Anything not directly spoken by God to Moses was received of Moses [and others] by direct Devine Inspiration from the days of Moses through the first century apostles.

The Holy Spirit of God would NEVER try to discredit the Word of God; the spirit that is inspiring attacks on the sanctity of the Word of Almighty God, is NOT from God, but from the Adversary of God;  Satan the devil. 

Jesus told us to test the words of men by the Word of God and to only follow those who are  completely consistent with the Word of God. Paul said much the same thing. 

Jesus and Paul put the lie to the idea that the scripture is unreliable and that we must get our religion from human leaders; which is pure Roman Catholicism. 

Jesus attested that the Word of God was absolutely reliable saying that nothing would fail of the Word of God; so much for the scriptures being unreliable.

Matthew 5:18   For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled [fully kept].

Jesus also said that we are to live by every Word of God: 

Matthew 4:4   But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

As Daniel was told:  The wise [those who live by every Word of God] WILL understand, but those who disrespect the Word of God shall NOT understand. 

Daniel 12:10   Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

We have Christ’s own promise that God’s Spirit would lead ALL  those who have it and do not quench it with sin, to understand God’s Word (John 16:13).

Jesus made it clear that the ONLY insurance the godly have of not being deceived is to personally understand the scriptures and hold those who seek to lead us, up to the standard of God’s Word. The entire history of physical Israel is a lesson that we are to live by every Word of God and that we are NEVER to follow any priest, elder or leader contrary to the Word of God. 

To whom did God send his prophets?   They were sent to correct the elders  and leaders who were sinning and leading the brethren astray!

What these organizations are doing is placing the elders and leaders as idols BETWEEN the brethren and God,  which is the idolatrous Nicolaitane system that Jesus Christ HATES!

Jesus taught us to live by every Word of God  (Mat 4:4).

Jesus warned us:

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

A wolf feeds himself first, and ravages the flock.

Ezekiel 34 the entire chapter is about those shepherds in BOTH physical and spiritual Israel who are wolves and feed themselves with all the good things of the flock while neglecting to feed the flock with the truth in due season.

Those who are  political and seek the chief seats, who seek self aggrandizement and personal advantage; are the wolves hiding among the sheep. Today there are very many such wolves and eagles who do not feed the sheep the true Gospel of: warning, repentance, and diligent faithful obedience to God and salvation. Which is the way of life, the very Word of God, and the way to salvation.

Ezekiel 34:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 2Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?

Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Jesus prayed to the Father to: 

John 17:17  Sanctify [set his people apart from worldliness to godliness by God’s Word] them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

The True Good Shepherd feeds the flock with the words of truth; with the teachings that lead to salvation; strongly rebuking all sin. We are to follow that true Good Shepherd with the diligent KEEPING of the whole Word of God, so that the whole flock internalizes God the Father and the Son; growing into a full spiritual unity with God!

John 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.

2Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.

3Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.

4Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

5I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

Matthew 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

We are to follow that example that was set for us by Jesus Christ, and faithfully serve God the Father through living by every Word of God, without fear or compromise; regardless of what men think or do.

Luke 12:42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season?

43Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

44Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath.

7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

 

Matthew 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

You shall know the true good shepherds by their love of God and their diligent living by and teaching of every Word of God and by their diligence to do the will of HIM who called them.

 Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Those who internalize the nature of God the Father and Jesus Christ; who become one with them in total spiritual unity, through a deep love for God and every Word of God, those who set a good example of godliness and FEED THE FLOCK with the good pasture of the Word, watering them with the Spirit of Godliness, are building on the foundation of the Word of God: Which shall NEVER be moved. 

Brethren we are to be built upon the Holy Scriptures; not on the words of men!

Ephesians 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

Matthew 7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

They want to discredit God’s Word as beyond the understanding of the brethren; to gain full moral authority and power for themselves, usurping the prerogatives of Almighty God, so that they can fight the truth and lead the brethren away from the sound doctrine of the Holy Scriptures!

The Word of God exposes the many false shepherds among us!  

The Word of God cuts sharply into the very heart and spirit of our organizations and convicts us of our sins and egocentric spiritual complacency; and our lack of Christ centeredness; exposing our almost total lack of Christ-like zeal for God the Father’s will and Word!

Jesus Christ stands at the door of each of those called to him; knocking (Rev 3), calling us to repent of our self righteous idolizing of our own ways; calling us to a diligent dedicated passionate obedience to the commandments of God; calling us to a zeal for the keeping of God’s Word and instructions; calling us to sincerely repent of our self seeking embracing of worldliness.

The wolves pretend to feed the flock; the better to ravish them.

It is only by reading and doing these words of Christ, that we begin to learn to discern between the holy and the profane; between the wolves and the true shepherds and sheep; for truly the wolves do disguise themselves diligently, and can only be discerned through a proving of all things by the scriptures.

Matthew 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Christ had the authority of the Word of God, because he taught, stood on and lived that Word!

Any person who teaches the very Word of God, has the authority of the Word that he teaches.

Christ said to keep the Father’s commandments!  Christ’s authority was of God the Father, because he stood on and taught what the Father had commanded him!

As long as he taught what God the Father had commanded; Christ was speaking in the Name Of, and by the Authority Of: The very King of the Universe!

John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

NO man has any authority whatsoever!  

No matter if ordained or not; and regardless of what office he may claim!  Yet, if what is said is the truth, and absolutely consistent with the Word of God [for God’s Word is truth]; then that teacher has the inherent authority of that truth! 

Therefore judge the words of ALL men by the whole Word of Almighty God!

UCG and other COG groups take the position that the brethren are to obey the organizations and are to judge the Bible by the words of men, which is the exact opposite of what Jesus, Paul and others taught, saying we are to judge the words of men by the Word of God. 

Jesus commended those who used the scriptures to discern false teachers by whether they were consistent with God’s Word.

Revelation 2:2  I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried [tested all men by the scriptures and by their consistency with te Word of God] them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: 
We are commanded to NEVER believe the words of men without first proving them by the standard of God’s Word.
1 Thessalonians 5:21   Prove all things; hold fast that which is good [by the Word of God]
Those who did check up and hold men to the Word of God are called noble in the scriptures

Acts 17:11    These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

How could they do that if the scriptures were not reliable? 

Proverbs 3:5   Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding  [the understanding of men] .

These false teachers are trying to get the brethren to believe them regardless of the scriptures; to fight against the truth of God’s Word like the Passover and God’s Biblical Calendar and also in preparation for the coming changes in the teachings of the organization. 

This abominable teaching to put our trust in men and not in the Word of God is a massive movement away from Almighty God! 

Once we abandon the Word of God to follow men, we have become idolaters and have lost a place in the resurrection to spirit, unless we wake up and quickly repent.    

The Holy Spirit of God would NEVER try to discredit the Word of God; the spirit that is inspiring this is NOT from God, but from the Adversary of God 

Psalm 40:4  Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
An Open Letter to the Ekklesia
Dear Friends
I am sending you this warning out of sincere concern and respect for you.  You know these scriptures so I will not quote them directly, if you don’t it would be wise to look them up.

Jesus Christ himself attested to the absolute authority of the Holy Scriptures and to the ability of the Holy Spirit to give a good understanding to EVERY PERSON who follows God’s Spirit, to diligently learn and live by every Word of God.

The Holy Spirit would NEVER inspire disrespect for the Word of God, which is a  BLASPHEMY against God’s Word, and a BLASPHEMY against the authors of that Word; God the Father and Jesus Christ.

The claim that the immutable, unshakable  Word of God is not reliable, or that God’s Spirit cannot give understanding to the brethren is a doctrine of demons, designed to replace God and the Word of God with the opinions of men, usurping the absolute authority of the  Word of God with idols of men.

The moment we reject the absolute authority of the Word of God for the opinions of a man or group of men, we have become IDOLATERS.

The moment we reject the absolute authority of ANY PART of the Word of God; we have rejected that Word and the authority of its Authors.  Therefore because we have rejected God and His Word, God rejects us until we sincerely repent.

Jesus Christ stands at the door knocking to be let in, but we lock the door on Him when we deny the absolute authority of the Word of God, by which Word we shall be judged in the end.

By exalting men above the Word of God; we become idolaters as surely as others have bowed down to statues.

Jesus Christ loves every one of his Called Out very dearly and is not willing that any should perish, therefore if offenders do not quickly repent he will cast us into the affliction of great tribulation, that through the affliction of the flesh we will learn to love the truth and respect the absolute authority of His Word so that He may save the spirit.

I feel compelled to warn the Ekklesia out of love and respect for you;  that because very many of you have rejected the authority of the Word of God to idolize men and corporate entities, we will be rejected by God and have nothing in Christ or God the Father until we sincerely repent.

God is not going to listen to our excuses about why we have disrespected Him, but will correct all those who disrespect His Word in His righteous and hot displeasure.
