"Woe to the rebellious children," says the LORD, "Who take counsel, but not of Me, and who devise plans, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin. Who walk to go down to Egypt, and have not asked My advice."
I am sorry to inform you that there are wolves among the churches as the scriptures have stated. They are creating children of wrath and possible sending thousands to hell. Please, Please, read the below. It just may save your life. If you believe this message if important please increase my karma so that I may pin it. Thank you. Quoting: Harbinger Of Truth
2 Corinthians 6:1 - As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain.
The scriptures are not to be interpreted by humans. The scriptures sometimes explain themselves or the spirit teaches the believers.Do not let humans or anything besides God teach you about God!
2 Peter 1:20-21
Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 13:9-12 - For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
God seeks those who worship in spirit and truth for he is a God of the living and not the dead. So you must know the truth for it shall be a part of your faith and you must have his spirit dwelling inside you to inherit eternal life for he is the only immortal.
1 Corinthians 15:2
By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
Do you believe in Jesus Christ or do you only believe he exist? Who are those who believe in him?
I have come as a light into the world,that whoever believes-in-Me should not abide-in-darkness.
“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
Who is in-darkness?
And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.
Who is in-him?
1 John 3:24
Now he who keeps His commandments abides-in-Him, and He-in-him. And by this we know that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.
Who is those he made alive? What gives life?
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
Who has the spirit? Those who obey him or those who disobey him? Can we obey and disobey at the same time? Shall we find more proof?
Acts 5:32 (NKJV)
And we are His witnesses to these things, and so also is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
Have you ever heard a sinner say they love God? That they have the Holy Spirit? Who does God say loves him? Does God, the Holy Spirit lie?
Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father’s who sent Me.
John 14:15-17 (NKJV)
“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
So, those who are not born of God are not believers. Need more proof?
1 John 5:1(NKJV)
Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.
1 John 3:9(NKJV)
Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
Who are those who confess Jesus Christ as coming into the flesh? Do you have the holy spirit?
2 Timothy 2:19
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.”
1 Corinthians 12:3 (NKJV)
Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed, and no one can say that Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit.
Who is the one who denies the Lord instead of denying themselves? Are you a saint or sinner?
They profess to know God, but in works they deny Him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work.
Are you a child of God or a son of Satan? You cannot be both. You cannot sin and obey at the same time.
1 John 3:4-10 (NKJV)
Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides-in-Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God. In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother.
What or who is an anti-christ? Well, who is against his way, truth, and life? Who is a son of satan? Are you pro-christ?
You are doing the works of your own father.” “We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only Father we have is God himself.”
He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world. You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
1 John 2:21-23
I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth. Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
What if I told you one with the holy spirit has many titles? Believer? Born of God? Saint? Born again? Brother? Sister? Child of God? Christian? Disciple? They love God, know him, and have seen him. They are good trees that bear good fruit. They do not and cannot sin. They are saved and not condemned. All promises are ‘yes’ in Christ. Also, I am talking about sin that does not lead to death. It’s like a chain reaction of truth. They are holy, blameless, and pure. They walk in the light as he is in the light. In this world they are like Jesus, the perfect sacrifice. He lead by an example in which they follow for it is enough to be like ones teacher but not greater.
Notice the “if” in John 8:31-32
Do not believe me unless I do the works of my Father.
You might be surrounded by false disciples. Christians are disciples. So you may be surrounded by false Christians. Now you know.
If I had not done among them the works no one else did, they would not be guilty of sin. As it is, they have seen, and yet they have hated both me and my Father.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Matthew 24:13 - But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
But Jesus said, “Do not forbid him, for no one who works a miracle in My name can soon afterward speak evil of Me. For he who is not against us is on our side. For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.
So, what must you do in order to obey "enough" to get the holy spirit? Meet God "half way" and he shall come to you and carry you the rest of the way.
Acts 2:38 - get-in-him, 1 john 3:24; then get baptised-in-his-name.
Then you will believe once you have the holy spirit.
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
As for those who don't have the holy spirit.
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
How does one get-in-him in order to be baptized in-his-name? Repent of all sins that lead to death.
1 John 5:15-16
And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that.
What is sin that leads to death? These below may help you find out. Do you see anyone who claims to have the holy spirit doing the below? A really easy way to know if someone does not have the holy spirit, is if they tell a lie. Satan is the father of lies.
Acts 3:19; Ephesians 5:3-5; Colossians 3:5; Matthew 15:19; Mark 7:21-22; Acts 15:20; Romans 13:13; 1 Corinthians 5:11; 6:9; Galatians 5:19-21; Revelation 21:8; 22:15; 1 Timothy 1:9-11
