THE HEALTH OF THE DOCTRINE OF JESUS ​​# 7FIRM IN HIS DOCTRINE(1 Timothy 4:1) "But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons."
INTRODUCTION:Paul had instructed Timothy to shepherd the church of Ephesus as the apostle misionaba, well ahead of Paul had warned on arrival in the congregations of the false teacher, "wolves in sheep's clothing" to scatter the sheep through satanic teachings. The order received Timothy was to stand firm on sound doctrine he had received, searching the scriptures daily, others teach pure doctrine and authority bravely face these false prophets. Today, you and I are Timothy, and that order is for us. We can not prevent apostasy arises, but we can prevent it from reaching our own lives and congregations.
THE CHRISTIAN SHOULD PREPARE AGAINST apostasy.We will answer three important questions:
I What is apostasy?According to what the Scriptures reveal apostasy is: Renegar and departing from the true path. In John 14:6 we read, "Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life no one comes to the Father except through me." So apostasy is to deny Jesus. (Mt 10:33) says: "But whosoever shall deny me before men, I will disown him before the Father in heaven."
Apostasy can encompass two separate aspects,BUT RELATED:1) A person apostate when he rejects all or some of the original teachings of Christ or the apostles. In (1 Timothy 4:1), Paul noted that the Holy Spirit says some faith refuse diverted from teaching listening holy doctrine. (Ephesians 2:20) says that "we are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with the chief cornerstone Jesus Christ."
2) also falls into apostasy moral, that is when the believer ceases to abide in Christ and again become a slave of sin and immorality. We read in (Isaiah 29:13) "Because this people draw near me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me, and their fear is but a commandment of men who have been taught. '(Mt 23:28) Jesus speaking to the religious of the time: "So you also outwardly indeed appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity."
What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? In any way. Do you not know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? V-23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. "(Romans 6:15-16, 23); (Ro.8 :6-8)" For the mind the flesh is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can and those who are in the flesh can please God. "Finally in (Titus 1:16)" They profess to know God, but in works they deny him, being abominable, disobedient, and disqualified for every good work. "
II WHO depart?1. - BE UPON THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE SALVATION AND LIKED HER AND BENEFITS.Unfortunately of course, can not deny the faith those who have never had. An apostate yesterday today was a Christian. Read more scriptures: (Mt 24:24) "For false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." Do you realize? If possible, even the elect these demonic doctrines continue to be deceived. In (Acts 3:12-15) Paul exhorts the church: "Peter saw it, said to the people: Men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? Or why do you stare at us as if by our own power or godliness we had made this man walk? The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him. But you denied the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer to be granted unto you, and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, whereof we are witnesses. " The apostle urges us to remain faithful to what we have believed in the scriptures, it is also our duty to exhort one another so that we take care of each other to avoid falling out of the way and that is Christ.
2. - NOT LOVED THE WORD OF GOD.(MT22 :29-33) we read the words of Jesus to the Sadducees: "Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven . But concerning the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob? God is not God of the dead but of the living. Hearing this, the people were astonished at his doctrine. "
Ignorance of the will of God described in the Bible leads us to commit errors that often cause much damage to the Lord's work, In (Mark 12:10-11) we read when the Lord rebukes some of his ignorance of the Scriptures and the fulfillment of prophecy, saying: "Dost not you read this scripture: The stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner, The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes?"These by their lack of love for the Word of God does not scrutinize, for them to grow is later.It is proved that a poorly nourished child will have problems with their growth, will wimp, is fertile ground for diseases, including their intelligence will be decreased. Similarly, one who does not feed your spiritual life with God's word will have problems with your spiritual growth will be a wimp and Satan will have found fertile ground to sow his tares. It's so easy to turn to those who have no roots in the Word.In (Acts 5:11-14) "And great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things. And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders among the people, and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch. Of the others, none dared to join them, but the people magnified them. And believers in the Lord, multitudes both of men and women. "
(Hebreos5 :11-14) "Paul says: About this we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. Ye ought to be teachers, after all this time, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God, and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. And everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe But solid food is for those who are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil ".
Apart from spiritual immaturity, lack of appreciation for the holy word leads them to an indifference to the warnings of the Holy Spirit against the flesh. When you do the time, read, please, Matthew Chapter 23: You'll find this indifference plotted and hardness of heart of the scribes and Pharisees. We have already read in Chapters 6 and 8 of Romans about that living according to the flesh makes us slaves to sin and like Christ and freed us from that slavery is absurd returning.
3. - Who heeded THE DOCTRINES OF DEMONSAnd to seducing spirits.In (Hchos 26:29-30) Paul himself says, "Paul said, would to God that little or a lot, not only you but also all who hear me this day, might become such as I am, except these bonds when she had said these things, the king arose, and the governor, and Bernice, and they that sat with them. "Of course, at first the slip is so soft it is almost imperceptible, and the line of freedom and debauchery is so thin you will not even realize when they're on the other side but with increasing diversion, as is obvious for others.In (2 Corinthians 2:17) "For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God, but as of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ." Paul talks about those who benefit falsifying the word of God, to the surprise of many, no innocence about it, these people do not err, but willingly adulterate the divine message. Oh, Lord, how great is the condemnation that awaits!
III WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES for apostates?In (Mt 12:22-36) "How much then is a man than a sheep? Therefore it is lawful to do good on the sabbath days. Then he said to the man, Stretch out your hand. He stretched it out, and it was restored whole as the other. Then went the Pharisees, took counsel against Jesus to destroy him. Knowing this, Jesus withdrew from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and healed them all, and charged them not make him known to be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Behold my servant, whom I have chosen, my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my Spirit upon him, and shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. Not contend, nor cry, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed he will not break, and smoking flax not quench, till he judgment unto victory. And in his name shall the Gentiles. Then was brought to him a demoniac, blind and dumb: and he healed him, so that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? But when the Pharisees heard it, said, This man casts out demons only by Beelzebub, the prince of demons. Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand. And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself, how shall then his kingdom stand? And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your children cast? Therefore they shall be your judges. But if I by the Spirit of God cast out demons, then you have come to the kingdom of God. Else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind? And then he will spoil his house. He that is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters. Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this world or the next. Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit corrupt: for the tree is known fruit. Brood of vipers! How can you speak good, being evil? Because of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account on the day of judgment. "
We read about the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, Jesus says no pardon for him who commits this sin.Please carefully and analyzing all writing discernment put much attention to the following: (Ephesians 1:13) "In whom ye also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit. " (Ephesians 4:30) "And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." (Isa 63:10) "But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore they became the enemy, and he fought against them" (1 Cor 6:19) "Know ye not that your body is the temple of Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own ". (Philippians 4:3) "Also I beg you also, true companion, help these women who labored with me in the gospel, with Clement and the rest of my fellow, whose names are in the book of life." (Apo.3: 5) "He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not erase his name from the book of life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and before his angels." (Apo.22: 19) "And if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city and from the things which are written in this book." (Hebrews 6:4-6) "For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the coming age, and fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. "If you take offense to such a degree the Holy Spirit of God, if life in Christ is so poor, if desoímos the voice of God, warning against the flesh, and if we go further towards the opposing doctrines taught by Christ , what can we expect but the Holy Spirit away from this former believer? If the Spirit who will convict of sin the sinner?, Who will take you to repentance? Who will guide rightly? If there is no conviction of sin, no repentance, if there is no repentance, no forgiveness of sins, if there is no forgiveness, no salvation.Therefore, the result of the great apostasy, away from the Lord, is eternal damnation. (Acts 6:4-6) "And ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word. Pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch: Whom they set before the apostles , who prayed, they placed their hands ".
IV HOW CAN I BE DELIVERED (A) OF THE apostasy?1. - Consecration to the Lord. To consecrate is departing for Jesus. This does not mean leaving the family and abandoned the duties of this land. It means that God, and only God rules my existence.(Isaiah 55:6-7) "Seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. "
2. - STUDYING SCRIPTURE daily in prayer.(John 5:39) "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me;"
Imitate the famous brothers of Berea who after hearing Paul's words in Scripture immediately investigated to see if what the apostle was saying was true. (Acts 17:10-13) "Immediately, the brothers sent Paul and Silas by night unto Berea. And they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with all readiness, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. So many of them believed, and Greek women of distinction, and not a few men. When the Jews of Thessalonica had knowledge that Berea was preaching the word of God by Paul, were there, and stirred up the people. " Acts also tells of Apollos (Acts 18:24) "was an eloquent man, and mighty in the Scriptures."Timothy was taught in the Scriptures from childhood through her mother and grandmother. Know the God we serve, and the most direct routes are prayer and Scripture.
3. - WORKING THE GIFTS GIVEN TO EACH AND CHURCH.(1 John 4:1) "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets have gone out into the world."From all that we have been chosen by God, redeemed by the blood of Jesus and discipled in the Sound Doctrine of Jesus there is none who is naked, God does not send us to war without all the equipment prior to the end to stay in victory. Unfortunately, most Christians live a pitiful existence in defeat because they have not the slightest idea of ​​the authority and power with which Christians have been invested, and all this WHY? BECAUSE WE DO NOT KNOW THE SCRIPTURES.
4. - BROTHERS teaching sound doctrine. So important is this point that Paul never tired of saying to his disciples. Let's read some verses about:
(1 Timothy 4:6-11) "If thou put the brethren, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine which you have followed. Dispose of profane and old wives tales. Yourself in godliness , for bodily exercise is of some value, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life, and the next. saying is sure and worthy of all acceptation. therefore we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, specially of those that believe. things command and teach. "(2 Timothy 2:2) "What you heard from me before many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also."(2 Timothy 4:1-2) "I charge thee before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom: Preach the word, be urgent in season and out of season, reprove , rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. "(Titus 2:1) "You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine."
5. - Denouncing the work of the enemy. Unfortunately, Satan has deceived a part of the Body of Christ, for fear of falling into authoritarianism has tended to remove the holy discipline that prevailed in the early church. Today, the brothers can not be saying anything or otherwise offended, and many leaders not to diminish in number choose to make a blind eye to irregularities and even sins in congregations. With this system satan has its doors open to work in evangelical groups, but Paul urges unmask the enemy.(Titus 1:13-15) "This testimony is true Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. All things are pure to the pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure, but even their mind and conscience is defiled. "(Titus 2:15) "These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Nobody despise you."(Jude 1:3) "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, I had to write and urge you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."
CONCLUSION: The Holy Spirit tells us clearly that they manifest the wicked-the-antichrist apostasy within the church arise, Christians without roots for not loving or search the Scriptures, pay attention to doctrines of demons that false teachers ensure the dissemination.The Lord well in advance announcing the apostasy comes for us to prepare and not that we're going to be misled by neglecting the Word. Paul, John and Peter talk constantly to care for and endure sound doctrine in the Word to fight Satan, his false teachers and apostasy. At this moment, the Holy Spirit is speaking to you:
"Take heed to yourselves, lest they lose what you have worked for, but may win a full reward." (2 John 8).
(Deuteronomy 30:10-19) "When you obey the voice of the Lord thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul . For this commandment which I command you today is not too hard for you, neither is it far. It is not in heaven, that you should say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it to us and we will hear to do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, Who shall go for us the sea to bring it to us and we do hear, in order to do it? For close to you is the word, in your mouth and in your heart, that you may observe. See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil: For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, to live and multiply, and the LORD thy God may bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. But if your heart turns away and not obey, and forsake you astray, and worship other gods and serve them, I declare to you today that you shall surely perish, not prolong your days in the land whither ye go over Jordan to go in possession of it. At call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed. "
