Those of us with a few years under our belts have learned a few things—often the hard way.
One such lesson is not to trust anyone [except the Lord] to rightly interpret His meaning in His Book: no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation, for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will…
This is the stuff that cults are made of: there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies… many will follow
These followers won’t even engage without their church leader present. Isn’t that just NUTZ? Maybe this guy should be in the heating business: he’s their “filter.”
I have a zeal for love (hopes all things). This caused me, for a while, to mistakenly trust and fall prey to such vipers.
Thank the LORD that I now know better!
God told us that His Words are not for one’s own interpretation. I was a fool to disobey Him. It’s a rebel and a slacker who continues to follow a greedy wannabe with a god complex: the guy who appears to have all the answers, but is, in fact, untaught and unstable: …some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures… be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error…
These followers refuse to heed others’ warnings about these so-called “elders,” who are often found to be deceptive to a level that would make Hollywood blush. People are being used and abused—and don’t even know it.
Another awful truth is many of these “teachers” are actually ne’er-do-wells, skulking around on computers in somebody’s basement like in “That 70’s Show”, “Wayne’s World,” or “Beavis and Butthead.”
Isn’t it better to follow GOD and GOD ALONE!
So, here’s today’s warning: Let the Spirit guide you—even right now, as I give you my take on my take.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
