“The simple believeth every word: but the prudent man looketh well to his going.” Proverbs 14:15
—– ALL vain imaginations must be circumcised from our thinking. In other words, all images (root word for imaginations) must be ridded from your thinking which do not come straight from the whole Counsel of God’s written Word which is His final authority. Many walk in a vain show, with great spiritual pretension, acting the part of a prideful fool as they suppose to have superior knowledge of God and other things when they don’t even know Scripture. They are ungrounded, unlearned, biblically-illiterate, and therefore ignorant of God, His creation, the enemy of all souls, sinful man, and the world. They learned a couple of Bible stories as a child and therefore vainly hold an inflated view of their shallow crumbs. …..Do you take this as an insult? Well then maybe the LORD you claim to be serving will today become important enough to you to learn His Word and to cease acting as if you know anything at all when you don’t even know His Word. Perhaps He is sending to your heart a rebuke, in order to get you to truly repent. When you do, He truly will be first place in your life. Your days will begin with, be filled with, and end with Him (2 Corinthians 5:17-18).
1 John 4:1
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
These are good verses to place on an index card and memorize. So many today have bought in to the spiritually dumb syndrome where they are afraid, with evil fear, to question, investigate, or discern doctrines and the fruit of people who are in leadership.
Excuse me, but didn’t JESUS instruct us to be fruit inspectors (not with an evil heart though)?
“Ye shall know (Greek – discern) them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know (Greek – discern) them.” Matthew 7:16-20
Friend, why would the Son of God tell us that we would “know – discern” people by their “fruits” if He didn’t intend for us to do so???
Of course, what the LORD wants me to do is to first place my own heart, motives and life to the acid test of the Holy Scriptures, then I will see clearly to help others (who have needs) to be restored to their rightful relationship with God and to avoid deceivers who were promised to be in our midst (1 Cor. 11:31-32; Gal. 6:1-2; Matt. 7:1-6; Acts 20:27-32; 2 Peter 2:1-22; 1 Tim. 4:1-2; Col. 2:8…) .
