BEWARE of those who peddle THEIR ministry-by tickling ears and not preaching raw divine truth!
“God sets the conditions and will not prostitute heaven for anyone. If you don’t come repentant and in total surrender of everything to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior, you cannot be saved. And any system of the gospel that tells you different will damn your soul.” Rich Brown
The missing component in today’s false gospel. IF you are listening to a preacher who is not calling you to die – AS JESUS DID OFTEN – you are being misled by “seducing spirits” via these cross-less “doctrines of devils.” (1 Timothy 4:1-2). Christ, who is “the resurrection and the life,” will only raise up those who are bowed down in co-death with Him (Psalms 145:14; John 11:25; Romans 6:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15:36; 2 Corinthians 4:10-12; Galatians 2:20, etc.). Life will only spring out of death – and that is the Gospel prescription (Psalms 145:14; 2 Corinthians 4:10-12, etc.).
“When you share the Gospel that calls men to die daily, forsake all sin and worldliness, very few want that Gospel and the religious and self-righteous rise up in concert to cast you from their midst.” Rich Brown
IF YOU haven’t perfectly denied self and lived the crucified life, welcome to the club. We are told by the LORD to forget all that is behind us and press toward the mark of knowing Christ – to count all things dung in comparison to knowing Him (Philippians 3:7-14). As we come before the LORD with contrite heart with words of confession of our sin, He will refresh and begin to establish us in Him (Hosea 14:1-2). God is good and He is able! Getting saturated in the message of the cross is essential to your success in Christ. Victory awaits. Resurrection life awaits!
