Truth and Error


John 14 v 23-24: "Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. He that loveth Me not, keepeth not My sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father's which sent Me."

1 John 4 v 6: "We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us: he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error."

This Earth has always seemed to me to be a polling booth for all mankind. We have to make decisions on every aspect of our lives on a daily basis. The ultimate choice we make for ourselves is not where we live or whom we marry but whether we choose truth over error. This specifically refers to our spirit, soul and body. The final, eternal destination of our soul. We must make no error about Heaven or Hell. They are real and our entire presence on this planet is to find favour with our Father and Jesus Christ to spend eternity with them in Heaven.

This involves acknowledging the Holy Bible as true and accurate. It is really the Manufacturer's Handbook. Follow the directions correctly and faithfully and all works out perfectly. Ignore the Handbook and apply your own rules to life and before long disaster will strike.

You must decide whether to follow Jesus and walk in His footsteps or walk your own path through Minefield Earth. If you are not placing your feet in His footprints you will eventually step on a mine that will cause a blow up in your life or circumstances.

Every time you get complacent about salvation you become careless. People who are being persecuted and killed for being Christians are the least careless of all. Persecution welds people into a tight formation filled with much prayer and obedience to God.

South African Christians are very complacent as they have freedom of religion now but should be wary because the chief allies of our communist socialist government are China, Russia and India - all three known for their severe and ongoing persecution of Christians. South Africa also has strong ties with Arab lands who kill Christians and Jews. The days are coming when our complacency will suddenly change to a much deeper awareness of where our loyalties lie.

All Western countries have been strongly infiltrated by some or other of the militant communist or Muslim fraternity. They are an army in waiting ready to rise up and destroy the flock of those who belong to the Lamb of God.

Jesus says we must not fear. If we die in the truth we are on a short cut to Heaven. If we live the truth we bring many sons to glory. Those are our only real options. Suddenly there is no safe haven only a safe Heaven.

Following error is when you think you are safe while running through the minefield without a map. It comes on those who are sitting in churches that do not preach the full gospel of Jesus Christ; or follow the InterFaith route; or follow teachings or doctrines not supported by the Holy Bible. 

Error is when you follow other gods to nirvana or think you can be a suicide bomber to get your 72 virgins or populate your own planet as Mormons teach. Jesus said it clearly about Himself - I am the Light, the Truth and the Way; no man comes to the Father except through Me.

Jesus is the door to Heaven. No other door, no other way will get you there. Orthodox religions that elevate Mary and dead saints over the Trinity of God, are on the path of error no matter how rich they are. Churches that do not preach the words of Jesus in John 3 v 3: "Verily, verily I say unto you, you must be born again." are preaching error that the christening of babies saves that person's soul for all time. It doesn't. All that baby gets is a wet head.

I feel bold to say these things because the days are getting darker and it may be the only opportunity for someone to see the error they have lived in and change their destiny. My cry to God is always that no-one I meet or share with will ever be in doubt about their standing with God. That they will know truth from error. What they do with that knowledge is in their own hands as they must make their own decision.

Prayer: Heavenly Father All around us are the signs of the end times. At any time the final trumpet will sound and the time for choices will be gone. Please touch every person who reads this message to take it seriously and make sure they are happy with their decision concerning truth and error. In Jesus' name. Amen.
