“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (Jude 1:3). Stand up for the truth ! Quit being wishy washy and compromising the truth ! “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” (1 Peter 3:15). If you are involved with some group or teaching, no matter how long of a time, and someone challenges you with an accusation about a teaching that you are involved with, and you don’t say anything to defend the teaching that you say that you agree with, then that means that you still agree with that teaching, or you are just not knowledgeable enough in the Word yourself, to defend your beliefs. Sometimes silence can speak more words, when you should speak out. It is very hard for many people because of their pride to admit that they are wrong. The Lord is very concerned and upset and even angry when false doctrine is being taught to his sheep, even to the point where there is no remedy. Jesus warned that some would be the least in the kingdom of Heaven, and would receive of the plagues written in the Bible for false teaching. You had better know what your are teaching and that it is backed up by scriptures! It is one of the worst sins in Gods eyes to teach false doctrine to his people, and to not say anything, and remain silent about it. If anyone can show me anything that I have taught that is not the truth and is not backed up by scriptures, I would be so glad to correct it and change it. If you can’t, then you had better follow the truth that the Lord has given you. You can’t serve two masters, and I would say you can’t serve two ministries, because there is only one truth, and nothing short of the truth is the truth, and if you are trying to serve two ministries, your time, energy, and resources will be depleted and drained, and the Lord will not be able to use you to your fullest ! Make sure you are following with your whole heart the ministry that Jesus wants you to follow, and be involved in according to His Word, not just because they teach some true things. Jesus said,“If the light that is in you be darkness, how great is that darkness?”(Matthew 6:23b) Do you understand what this means? “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11). Jesus said, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Matthew 7:15). What does it mean to be a wolf in sheeps clothing? It is someone who pretends to be a sheep, but is teaching and listening to false doctrine! “Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:19). “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.”(Revelation 22:18,19). “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8,9). Beware, the warning has been given, don’t let it happen to you! When they asked Alexander The Great how he was able to conquer the world so quickly, he answered; ” By not delaying”.
CONTEND EARNESTLY FOR THE FAITH TODAY ! ! ! WITHOUT DELAY ! ! !
