Scriptures from the KJV
7th 1941, at Fort Shafter’s radar-information station in Hawaii, two privates approached Army Air Forces’
First lieutenant Kermit Taylor.
With much anxiety in their voices,
they reported seeing a BIG BLIP on their radar screens (Indicating a large number of aircraft about 132 miles away and fast
Lieutenant Taylor told the Privates: “Not to worry about it” thinking the BIG BLIP on their radar screen was a fleet of U.S. B 17 Bombers, due in from the mainland.
Sometimes, things are NOT what they appear to be!
I have no enemies, why should I fear, said President William McKinley just a few days before his assassination.
No reason for anyone to have a computer in there home, said digital equipment chair-person Ken Olson in 1977.
You ant going nowhere son, so go back to driving a truck, said the manager of the Grand Old Oprey after firing the guitar playing – hip shaking - Elvis Presley.
Sometimes, things are NOT what they appear to be!
With your voice, no one will let you be a broadcaster, said CBS interviewer, to Barbara Waters.
You sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, Sayeth the Laodicean church of God, in these latter days.
I want to speak a little about the church of God today brethren, and how we, the members of that Body, are doing, as we continue our journey towards the Kingdom of God.
We’re going to do some exploring today brethren, some evaluating, concerning the condition of the church of the Living God.
I want to take a look at some of its vital signs, maybe feel its pulse, measure its blood pressure, and have a
listen to it heart beat.
Because sometimes (even in the church of God) sometimes, things are NOT what they seem to
Or maybe better put, sometimes, even in the church of God, things are NOT what they ought
I want to discuss our faith today brethren. Yes,
I want to address our belief, and I want to focus in today on our unbelief. Yes, our unbelief.
Sometimes things look good on the outside, but what about on the inside? How about the inner man,
and our spiritual clothing? How does our Father see us? Our heavenly Father that is.
The Almighty God, the one who has the x-ray vision, and sees right down to our inner beings, even into our hearts & minds.
Is He pleased with us? Is there a way of knowing for sure whether He approves or disapproves of us?
O, we all look good on Sabbath morning, when we gather together for church, all dressed up with our
shirts & ties, toting our bibles, with our hair perfectly in place.
But sometime we can get a false sense of security when we come together on Sabbath, as we socialize
with our brethren and friends, thinking that everything is okay.
(But is it?) We need to know our spiritual condition,
how is our faith, what is our level of belief? We read in Hebrews about
how the prophets & the Patriarchs, who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained
promises, stopped the mouths of lions, out of weakness were made strong, and even women received
their dead raised to life again.
Well how about us, brethren,
has anyone stopped the mouths of any Lions lately?
Have any of our dead been raised back to life again? And how about the condition of the cog as a whole, the church that was given the two great commissions,
to preach the Gospel to the entire world, and to feed the flock of God? How are we doing, as a collective body of believers?
We have high calling brethren; the Almighty God, the Creator of the entire
universe, has individually called us. Most of us here began to answer that call, when we were first baptized &
had hands lain upon us.
But how about now, how about our progress, how are we doing,
has our faith been increasing? Are we still growing in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior
Or have we been detoured along the way by the cares of this world,
or maybe by the many false prophets and their false teachings that were prophesied to entered
into the church of God, causing us, the Body of Christ, the church of the Living God, to become unfruitful,
unholy and scattered, in both mind & spirit?
I ask, have the false prophets, the false teachers that have entered into the church
of God, caused the gifts of God (the gifts of healing – the gifts of prophesying – the gifts of tongues and the
other gifts) to be denied, held back, by our heavenly Father and unconfirmed by Him, with a lack of those “Signs
Following” that He said He would perform, to confirm, where He was working?
(Lets take a look at those “signs follow” in Mark 16)
Mk:16:14: Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them
with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he
15: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and
preach the gospel to every creature.
16: He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
17: And these signs shall follow (follow who?) them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18: They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19: So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20: And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following.
Brethren, I ask you, where are these signs? Seen any demons cast out lately?
I ask you, who amongst us has been given the gift of new tongues? How about the gift of healing? Brethren, there is a problem within the church of God, and the problem
is not with God. God’s arm has not weakened, and His words have not lost their Truth or power. The
problem is not with God; the problem is with the Body of Christ, the church. The problem is with us, and the problem can be
summed up in one word. UNBELIEF. The Layodecians are told: Ye sayest, I am rich, and increased with
goods, and have need of nothing;
not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.
When we hear this, or read this, we often point the finger at the other guy, the other members of the church of God.
But what about us, how do we measure up?Are we rich and increased with goods, and in need of nothing, or are
we wretched, miserable, poor, blind and naked? These words
used to describe the Laodicean church have much meaning:
= (The Greek means) Unsatisfactory in ability or quality. (How is our ability, how’s
Are we partakers of strong meat, are we teachers of the True Word of God?
are we still in need of feeding on milk? Do we practice what we preach?
= Valueless. Of mean, (or common) quality. (Are we plain Janes?) (Or do we stand out?)
are supposed to be the Lights of the world & the Salt of the earth.
We’re suppose to be saints, saints are pure, unblemished, unspotted!
= One in Abjectness (sunk to a low condition)
are NOT what they seem to be – Sometimes, things are NOT what they aught to be!Brethren, there’s
a belief problem in the church of God, and its members need to be upbraded – rebuked – admonished.
We’re the church of the living God; we have been given His Spirit. The only church on the face
of the earth that still lays hands upon those who repent, and are baptized. (That’s how God gives His Spirit.)We have been given lights brethren, lights that need to be placed upon Lamp stands to shine
before men, that they may see our good works, and Glorify our Heavenly Father.Are
we doing good works, good works that will glorify our Father? Brethren, we’re the salt of the earth!
I ask, have we lost our Savour?Brethren, We need to know Who We Are – Where
We’re coming From - Where we are going – And how to get there from here.Now we know that the hierarchical form of Government within the church of God (The form of government
that God hates!) has quenched The Spirit within us.But do we realize
that those false ministers (Who have succeeded in entered into the church) (Who have succeeded in quenching the Spirit
of God that dwells within us,)have also succeeded at bringing in some false
doctrines, some false teachings, that the church of God has embraced, and continued to believe and practice
in these end time in which we are living?Some of those false doctrines have caused the church of
God to become weak & powerless brethren! We
have to be doing something wrong, because the “signs follow” are not
there brethren. God is not confirming The Word.I want to address one of those false doctrines today. It concerns a tradition, yes; a tradition
that has been practiced in the church of God in these latter days, that has caused the church to become weak
& powerless.But first, before we go to the doctrine that I am referring
to, we need to put things into perspective, Because what I have to say today will quickly be dismissed & discarded
as heresy, but heresy is something that we need to be quick to voice brethren, if it’s the True Word of God.I ask those with Noble Ears, to listen and to consider what I have to say here today.Now I’m not going to preaching any of my own words here today brethren, our job, our responsibility
(As members of the Body of Christ, when we stand up) is to preach the Word of God (The Scriptures.)The Scriptures, which are for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that
the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. We find that
in 2 Tim 3:16.
Were going to zero in on a particular Scripture today brethren, because
we need to be sure that what we’ve been taught, what we’ve been practicing, as a tradition in the church of God,
is Truth, and in accordance with the Scriptures.
We need to heed the exhortations
that Jude (our Lords brother) gave us, concerning how we need to Strive & Fight for the
faith that was once delivered unto the saints.Because our Lord and Savior
is soon to return to His church, His faithful church, the pillar and ground of (the) Truth.
If we lack anything brethren, let us be void of doubt & unbelief.
The church of God is a scattered flock of sheep brethren. A scattered flock of sheep
that needs to hear its Masters voice, and follow Him!
start in the book of 1st Peter. Let’s refresh our memory concerning Who We Are, where we’re
coming from, and where we need to be going.
In this letter, Peter was addressing the strangers (The called of God that is) that were scattered throughout
At that time God’s people were beginning to be persecuted by
the Roman authorities for confessing to be Christians.
Only those who would renounce their faith and worship the Roman gods, were allowed to escape
with their lives.
Well Peter was telling the brethren back there in Asia
Minor that the Kingdom of God was worth suffering for. And he began to exhort them to holiness.
In 1 Ptr 2:9 Peter reminds the “People of God” of who they are, where there
coming from and where they need to be going.
1Pt. 2:9 But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people. (That’s
who we are, brethren.)The rest of this verse tells us where were coming from,
and where we need to be going.
that ye should shew forth the praises
of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
Yes, we have been called out of darkness, and
into His marvelous light.This
darkness spoken of here is something that all of us were in, when we were first called into God’s church. It’s
something that we all had in common when first called. (Mark chapter
2 please) (We need to realize this, this is important.)No matter where on planet
earth we live, no matter which city, town, country or continent we reside in, no matter which color, creed or nationality,
ALL that have been called by the Almighty God began their journey at the same place. We all had something
in common with one another, when 1st called.Mk:2: 13: And he went
forth again by the sea side; and all the multitude resorted unto him, and he taught them.
14: And as he passed by, he saw
Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the receipt of custom, and said unto him, Follow me. And he arose and followed him.15: And it came to pass, that, as Jesus sat at meat
in his house, many publicans and sinners sat also together with Jesus and his disciples: for there were many, and they
16: And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with
publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and
Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came
not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Yes, when 1st called, what we all had in common, was this: we were all
But we were not called to remain sinner’s brethren; we were called
to come out of sin, (Completely out) to come out of Egypt.
We were called to take action, to repent, to come
out of sin, and to become whole.
So to answer the question
concerning who we are (the people of God, that is) We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people.
Where are we coming from? = From the slavery of sin.
We have been called
to come out of sin.
Where do we need to be
going? We need to be entering into His marvelous light, to become whole.Yes, we have
been called to come out of darkness, and into His marvelous light! But men love darkness brethren, and it is difficult to
come out of it.We need to comprehend exactly what this marvelous
light is, so we can come into it.Jn:8:12: Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.Jn:14:6 (Not turning) Jesus saith: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.”
Brethren, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the one
who died in our stead, the one who was scourged beyond recognition with many stripes
for our healing, scourged until his flesh was ripped off of His body, and then was crucified on a stake, where He shed all of His blood, for us, so that we MIGHT live, He, is
our light, and He wants to lead us brethren,
He wants to bring us to The Father. And He is the only one who can do
We need this light brethren, but in order to come into this light, we need to come out
of darkness. We need to come out of darkness, the very thing that men love. No matter how deep the darkness
is, that we are in, we need to come out of it.
In order to succeed at coming out of darkness, we need to understand WHY we are
in it in the first place. We need to know WHY men love it.
Why do men love darkness brethren?
The Apostle John (The Apostle of Love) makes it quite clear why men love darkness,
and he also makes it quite clear how to come out of that darkness, and into His marvelous light.Jn3: 17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him
might be saved.
18 He that
believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name
of the only begotten Son of God.
19: And this
is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their
deeds were evil.
(Why, why do men love darkness rather than light?) because their deeds were
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
NIV reads: Everyone who does evil
hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
(This is why most pulpits
in the COG today water things down, because their flock wants to hear smooth talk, because their deeds are evil, and
they don’t want to feel guilty.)
(Now verse 21 tells us how to come out
of darkness, and into the light)21: But he that doeth truth cometh
to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
(Or approved by God)
NIV states it like this: “
lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly
that what he has done has been done through God."
Other translations say: “Has God’s approval.”
he who does Truth has God’s approval, and God will confirm it with those signs follow.
This is speaking of what we read earlier in Mark 16 about those signs follow,
concerning the Lord working with them, and confirming the Word.
In order for God to conform what we are doing, in order to have those signs follow,
to come out of darkness brethren, and into
the light, we have to doeth Truth; we have to live by Truth, walk in Truth. Follow the Scriptures,
the word of God, and not men.There is a tradition in the church of God that
is not in accordance with Truth, a tradition that is not in accordance with Scripture, and has caused the church
to become Spiritually weak and powerless.
is of utmost
importance to the church of God; it defines the church of the Living God.
church is: The pillar and ground of The Truth 1 Tim 3:15.Truth is what sanctifies us, sets us apart from everyone else: Sanctify them through thy truth: thy
word is truth
Jn:17:17:Truth is how the Father wants us to worship Him:
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit
and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must
worship him in spirit and in truth.
My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
We need to live by truth.
We need to do things according to God’s way, follow HIS instructions, His traditions.We need to study the Scriptures and make sure that what we have been taught by men is in accordance with the Word
Especially now, with the absence of “Signs Following”
This lack of signs follow shows us that God is not conforming what we are doing, that we are not doing some things
according to The Word.
Barnes’ commentary notes this about truth: One
Cometh to the light - Loves the truth, and seeks
it more and more, By prayer and searching the Scriptures (HOW?) By prayer and searching the Scriptures
he endeavors to ascertain the truth, and yield his mind to it.
Brethren, we need to be sure that that what we do, and how we do it, is according to the teachings
of the Bible, and not of man.
In 2Tm 4:3 (Not turning) Paul told Timothy to “Preach
the Word” both in season and out of season, and he told him to do it with careful instruction, and for a very
Because the time will come (Paul told Timothy) when men would not endure
sound doctrine, but would turn to fables, myths and lies.
(Would turn to teachings of men, instead of the teachings of The Word.)
(Sound doctrine is Truth.)
That time when precious truth & sound doctrine, would be discarded, and exchanged for fables, myths
& lies, has been here for some time now brethren.I’m not sure if
we deeply comprehend that. (Let’s go to 2nd Peter 2:1 please.)We
need to comprehend the many many warnings that we have been given by the Apostles and prophets of God concerning False Teachers,
and their false teachings.
Some of these false teachings are not new to the church, some have been around for a long time, and have
been accepted as Truth, and to the point to where “The Way of Truth is evil spoken of.
Yes, (The true Word) is being evil spoken of.Brethren, false teachings have been accepted as truth. We’ve seen many of them, The Hebrew
calendar with its postponements, the timing of the resurrection, and many more.
2Pt:2:1: But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you,
who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying
the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
Brethren, this was written nearly 2,000 years ago. Do you think the church is still waiting for these damnable
heresies to arrive?
not, I think they have been here for quite some time.Do
you think that these damnable heresies can only be found within Mainstream Christianity?
I think not, I think that some are being practiced within the cog itself.
That’s why we are commanded to Study, to rightly
divide the word of Truth.
(Going back to Verse 1)
2Pt:2:1: But there were false
prophets also among the people, even as there shall be2: And many shall follow their pernicious
ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
still are) false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in (have brought in) damnable heresies, even
denying (contradicting) the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
These are powerful warnings brethren. (Many shall follow their pernicious ways.)
ways:) The Greek
means = leading to exclusion from salvation, this is talking of spiritual death here.
Now being granted eternal life in the Kingdom of God is a free gift, no one can buy or work their way
But one does have to qualify to be there brethren. One does
have to qualify to be given that gift of eternal life.
And there is no respecter
of persons with God, we are told from Genesis to Revelation, that transgressors - sinners, will not inherit the Kingdom of
God. Sinners will not be there.God will not reside with sin.Not even if they’re baptized members of His church, called to be His Kings & Priests.Not even if we know His plan, for the church to marry
Christ, up on the Sea of Glass.In
order for us to make it up there, in order to be the bride to Christ, one has to qualify.How do we do that, how do we qualify to marry Christ, to be part of the Wedding Banquet up on the Sea
of Glass, and to receive those Crowns of righteousness, that the Father wants to give us?By making ourselves ready, by putting on white garments, by Overcoming & Conquering sin.The Scriptures are quite clear on all of this brethren, and the Scriptures do not lie.Christ tells all 7 churches, that it is to him that overcomes that He
will grant this and give that.If we fail to overcome, if we fail to change from our
sinful ways, and to walk this earth upright, we will not be there!Now there
is an adversary out there, who wants us to fail, who wants us dead.Satan the devil does not want us to qualify. He does not want us to receive those Crowns of
Righteousness.Satan is our enemy, and he is subtle with his
war tactics that he uses against us, and he is slick.His objective
is to detour us from walking this earth uprightly. He needs to get us to continue to practice sin, because
he knows that if we fail to conquer sin and continue to walk in it, we will not make it.To do that, to detour us from walking uprightly, he has to try and fly in undetected, below the Radar, hoping that
no one will notice.He wants to wipe out our heaviest armor,
in order to leave us defenseless against conquering sin.Now he’s
not going to come right out and say to the elect of God: Sin is okay, you don’t have to worry about sin, your sins
have been covered by the blood of Christ.He can use that lie on the world, the deceived world.But that wont work with the elect. No, Satan has to be a bit slicker with God’s elect.Now Satan knows that sin is what destroys. He knows and believes what God said: “The
sole that sinneth, it shall die.” So in order to see us
dead, all he has to do, is get us to continue to sin.How? By getting us to discard a very powerful tool that is needed in order for us to overvcome.The powerful tool that I’m referring to here, is a tool that each and every one of us is quite
familiar with, because we’ve ALL used this important tool ever since we were baptized, and came into God’s church.We use it at Passover time, during the Day’s of Unleavened Bread.Mat 26 please. (Lets take a look at something here.) Something that Christ instituted to His disciples on
the night in which He was betrayed.Mat 26: And as they were eating, Jesus took bread,
and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
27: And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it
to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;28: For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Now lets go to 1st Cor 11 please, and notice something that is very important.
It has to do with the spiritual condition of the church of God.It has to do with why our Heavenly Father has held back His very powerful spiritual gifts, like the
gift of healing, and why He has not confirmed The Word with those “signs follow” that He has promised
to give to those who believe.1st Cor 11 17: Now in this that I declare
unto you I praise you not, that ye come together not for the better, but for the worse.
What we read here in 1 Cor 11: 17 – 34 concerns something that the early church
was doing. And it concerns the receiving of God’s spiritual gifts, and His conforming of The Word.What the Corinthian church did here was not good. There coming together here should have
increased their strength, increased them in power (spiritual power.)
The meaning of the Greek word used for “better” it’s relating to strength,
might, and more especially manifested power.But
instead of their coming to together increasing their spiritual strength, it decreased their spiritual strength,
due to their grouse disregard and irreverence for what they were partaking of.
18: For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions
(Schism, division of mind) among you; and I partly believe it.
19: For there must be also heresies among you, that they
which are approved may be made manifest among you.
is speaking here about divisions that will distinguish who is approved by God, and who
is not.Who, will be made manifest,
or make known. (Confirmed” if you will.) and who will not be confirmed by the Almighty God.
20: When ye come together therefore into one place, this is not to
eat the Lord's supper.
For in eating every one taketh before other his own supper: and one is hungry, and another is drunken.22: What? have ye not houses to eat and to drink in?
or despise ye the church of God, and shame them that have not? What shall I say to you? shall I praise you in this? I praise
you not.23: For I have received of the Lord that which also I
delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
24: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat:
this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
This Remembrance is a very important tool in our fight towards conquering sin. When researching the Greek
definition for the word used here for remembrance, it said this:“In
remembrance of Me” means that the participant may remember Christ and the expiatory sacrifice of His death. The
memory of the greatness of the sacrifice should cause the believer to abstain from sin.And it works brethren. Every year we see how people prepare to partake of the Passover, how they examine
their behavior and make visible (even drastic) change in their actions (Changes for the better.)The only problem is that the changes in their behavior, in their actions, doesn’t last too long.O, it profound for a while, but soon, one returns to
his old ways, wavering from the straight and narrow, and following the broad & wide.After cleaning up their act, their behavior in preparation of partaking of the bread & the cup of the Lord,
they soon return to the old man, their old ways of walking in transgression.What
they need, is to be in this state of examination, state of repentance, more often. Because when they are, they do
a much better job of ceasing from sin.
Verse 25: After the same manner also he took the cup,
when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink
it, in remembrance of me.
26: For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew
(To declare plainly, openly, or aloud) the Lord's death till he come.
27: Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily,
shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.
28: But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.29: For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth
and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.
Brethren, it is of utmost importance for us (The members of the church of God, the body
of Christ) to
“discern the Lord’s body.”I don’t believe the church of God is practicing this.
The next verse verifies this.
30: For this cause (which cause? For not discerning the Lord’s body) For this cause many are
weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
weak means = without strength, powerless. (Its speaking of spiritual weakness, the current
condition of the COG.)
here, means moral weakness, another
unhealthy sinful condition of the COG.
, speaking of death here. Yes, many who should have been heeled, and would
have been healed, were NOT healed, but have died because of the spiritual weakness, and lack of spiritual gifts, like the
gift of healing within the COG.
Brethren, the false teachers who have
entered into God’s church a long time ago (influenced by Satan himself) with their false teachings, and their false
Have causes the church to err and turn away from Truth, and have brought in a false
tradition, by denying (contradicting) the Lord’s teaching, concerning how often we are to partake of the bread
& the cup.
The Scripture says: As oft As ye eat this bread,
and drink this cup, you do show (declare plainly, openly, or aloud)The Greek word translated as often as means: multiple times, many times.Jamieson-Fausset-Brown
Bible Commentary states this concerning the Greek:
death till He come.
as oft as-Greek, "as many times soever": implying
that it is an ordinance often to be partaken of
The very thing that can empower the body of Christ, through the Holy Spirit of God,
the very things that would bring Virtue to the church, in a more constant way, if partaken of often, has been controlled
and taught to be practiced in a limited way, by only coming together for this important act only once a year. This
has denied the Words of our Lord and Savior, and has caused the Father to be unable to work with us, and unable to confirm
that work, with those Signs Follow. Because we fail to continue to examine our walk, fail to examine our behavior
as often as we need to do it. Causing us to fail at
walking this earth uprightly, as we ought to be doing. Brethren, we need to study this, we need to be sure that
we are listening to the True voice of the Chief Shepard, and not the voice of false teachers, who have entered into the flock
of God. Because sometimes, things are not what they appear to be!
Sometimes, things are not what they ought to be!We need to be
sure that we are following His voice, because He is the way the Truth and the Life.
Eternal Life brethren, in the Kingdom of God.
