As we are reminded of Christ in the gosples and by men who truly had known Him, Learn the true Jesus . Feast on the pages of the bible .
To all new believers be on guard for what I say next will help you in your walk . Do learn that bible well . And be on guard , for in these days
sit many men who know how to allure and deceive you by alluring to your carnal side . Learn from that bible .
See How our LORD was very adamant about being His disciple and what this means .
And let none deceive you by trying to paint an description of Christ that panders to the ways and ideals of men . Rather just read the bible
and let the Spirit transform you within as those words in the bible build up in our inner being . The Holy book was written by men who
had recorded what spirit filled men had spoke through the SPIRIT . It truly means the inspiration came from GOD and not men .
Today we have many whose inspiration comes from within their own intellect , their own carnal nature and they will explain away the scrips .
This will only make things confusing and worse will make men have a need to sit under men who seem wise , yet only deceive .
Jesus is not being taught by many as HE himself taught . So learn the bible well . Christ came to set men free from being a captive , slave to sin .
Not to feel free in sin , but to be freed from the power of its hold on man . He came and walked in perfect union unto the Father .
God is the word and the word did become flesh . Walking in perfection , HE was sinless , and the ONLY perfect Lamb who could then be offered
up as the only perfect sacrifice FOR sins . While on earth He instructed men how to walk as HE himself walked in perfect will unto the Father .
He was offered up as the ONLY perfect sacrifice to GOD and took on our sins , paying the price so that all who would believe in Him , will be saved .
As Christ reminded them and James and other apostels reminded the church , let us be who have come to Christ , not just be hearers
but also doers of the word . This is deception if we hear but do not . . For if we follow not , which means obey not HE who has called us,
Then their is no evidence of HIM at work in us . For those who believe HAVE the SPIRIT in us . IF the Spirit of Christ be in us
it leads us , and those who are led of the Spirit are the children of GOD . Now the Spirit does not lead us into error or sin . It is impossible
for the SPIRIT to err , For the SPIRIT is Truth . As you read the bible more and learn OF HIM by the Spirit within , it will build you up
in the faith . The holy scriptures which are as honey to the taste will build you up in edification by the power of the Spirit within you .
You will be built up and will no longer be as simple children who are tossed to and fro by the doctrines of men .
Christ is no minister of sin . God is plenteous in mercy , but will not be mocked . If a man sows to the flesh then of the flesh he will reap corruption .
But if a man hears and is a doer of the word , and this grace does put on our heart , then he is led of the Spirit and his senses will be exercised
to discern between that which is evil and that which is good . The LORD does not leave us on our own , HE guides , HE leads all who are HIS
as they walk in the LIGHT as He is in the LIGHT , their path shines and they will see clearly to avoid evil things and do that WHICH is well pleasing In His sight .
But many have not known Him , and today more than ever many do teach destructive doctrine . Learn the HOLY scrips
which are able to make one wise through our faith in Christ . All must work out their own salvation By obeying HE who is within us
for it is HE who leads us and not we ourselves . Only let us learn of HIM , obeying The SPIRIT and learning bible sound doctrine.
For the Holy scrips coupled with HIS SPIRIT which guides us , will have us grow in the true grace of our LORD .
For men who were seasoned wrote those letters . They had been well taught of the LORD , they had walked with HIM
and were SPIRIT filled men . And it would be very wise that we heed their instruction and learn from truly seasoned men who had been with HIM
and had even seen him . Let us be made wise in Christ , so read that bible daily and HEED HIS SPIRIT which will never lead one astray .
But be on guard against the evils of the flesh and crucify it by the power of Christ . IF we know GOD is LOVE , then we KNOW He whom HE SENT , CHRIST , IS LOVE
so look at HIS examples n the gospel. and we know the apostels knew HIS LOVE , so look at their writings and see how they approached
all things as they gave instruction to the churches under their care . They carefully , by the SPIRIT , instructed , reminded , warned and encouraged
to daily follow Christ . to let not inquity be named among those who follow Christ . Fast to correct they were and mighty in scriptures they were
for their GUIDE had been JESUS and they had THE SPIRIT promised them by Christ , who is given to all who believe .
