JESUS CHRIST

           

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh 1:2  The same was in the beginning with God.

 

Rev 19:11  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Rev 19:12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

 

Jesus Christ is God

 

 

He is eternally God

 

Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Whenever it was. He was already there.

 

He is equally God

 

All cults pretty much evolved from Gnosticism

Genesis 1:1 is attacked by the humanists. Man  does not want to believe in God because if there is a God then man is accountable to Him.

If we don’t recognize our Creator. If we don’t recognize we are a created being. If we say that we evolved from the muck. If we say that we came from the animals, then we can do what we want. We can live like the animals because that is where we came from right.

 

The cults attack John 1:1

 

How to spot a cult

 

1) Exclusivity

Everyone else is wrong. We have the truth and many times it is some personal revelation that makes the leader or leaders stand apart.

Just remember

“If it is new, it is not true, if it is true, it is not new”

 

2) Authority

You must submit to me. I will tell you what to read and when to read it. I will tell you how to think.

 

3) Deity

All will essentially deny that Jesus is God in some way. They might not come right out and say it but they will in some way make it clear. There are many many wolves in sheep’s clothing. John said in his epistle that they come from among us, meaning that they will know the truth and they will preach some truth, but it is the lie that is mixed in their message to get their agenda across, and yes there is always an agenda. Whether it be racism, money, or just for power there will be an agenda there. I urge everyone out there to use great discernment when listening to anyone. Whether it is the TV. preached that everyone loves or that friend who tells you that they have found a great Christian teacher that they think you should listen to because the enemy is all around us.

 

Here is one way and probably the best:

It might look like a sheep; talk like a sheep and maybe even act like a sheep but it will always eat sheep. They will always devour sheep. They confuse, they cause strife, and they question the small insignificant things and get the focus off of Christ and onto whatever legal jargon they have been taught.

What are we to do? What do we do when that Jehovah’s Witness comes to our door?

Tit 3:9 but avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

Tit 3:10 a man that is an heretick after the first and second admonition reject;

Tit 3:11 knowing that he that is such is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned of himself.

 

Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Rom 16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.
