Jesus & Paul – Turning over to Satan

Jesus

Verses

Matthew 5:37 ( Link )

All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

 

Paul

Verses

1 Timothy 1:20 ( Link )

…holding on to faith and a good conscience, which some have rejected and thereby shipwrecked their faith.

Among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan to be taught not to blaspheme.

 

1 Corinthians 5:5 ( Link )

…When you are gathered in the name of our Lord Jesus…., hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

Your boasting is not good

“Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses” ( 1 Timothy 5:19 )

Title Text

Our title text is from 1 Timothy 5:19.

And, it reads :-

Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by two or three witnesses.

Background

There is a video I placed on YouTube and someone placed a comment that reads :-

Classic example of someone allegorizing every text that they happen to use in a sermon…. that’s not how the Bible was written. Big problem here

My Quick Take

Personally it hurts me that whenever someone tries to help others, those more learned,  see to jump in and critique that person without doing the following.

Points

  1. Specifics
    • Narrowly pinpointing what they have an offense with
    • Specifically help and say how they can do better
  2. Submit
    • Submit to Leadership
      • We all have to be consecrated
      • And, be under some kind of leadership
  3. Struggle
    • Struggle with things, especially when we feel the Spirit is saying otherwise
      • Be minimal, so to speak, and not be flippant.
        Say what the Spirit Said and say “No more, no Less
  4. Seek
    • Seek each other out
    • And, advice in private
    • Modern era through social media provides various ways to seek each other out.  And in the interest of time, be very specific as to where we think the other person might have erred
  5. Understand we are called to various demographics
    • What appeals to demographics is not always intersected
    • Why will God need me, when the other says everything the way I would have said it
    • It is one thing to speak in error
    • Yet another to appeal to various senses and culture
  6. Work Harder
    • I will say work harder, if you are so offended by what someone is teaching
    • Provide contrasting materials and view points
      • So that others can hear
      • And, the person who is wrong can be convicted

Supporting Verses

  • For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. ( 1 Corinthians 11:19 )

New Testament

  1. 1 Corinthians
    • Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
      ( 1 Corinthians 13:8 )
  2. 2 Corinthians
    • For I fear, lest, when I come, I shall not find you such as I would, and that I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults:

      ( James 1:26 )
    • My dear brothers and sisters, how can you claim to have faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ if you favor some people over others?
      But if you favor some people over others, you are committing a sin. You are guilty of breaking the law.
      So whatever you say or whatever you do, remember that you will be judged by the law that sets you free.
      There will be no mercy for those who have not shown mercy to others. But if you have been merciful, God will be merciful when he judges you.
      ( James 2:1-12 )
    • Brothers, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against his brother or judges him speaks against the Law and judges it. And if you judge the Law, you are not a practitioner of the Law, but a judge of it.
      ( James 4:1 )
    • Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
      ( James 4:7 )

Jesus

  1. Luke
    • Jesus Sends Out the Disciples
      If a man of peace is there, your peace will rest on him; if not, it will return to you.
      Stay at the same house, eating and drinking whatever you are offered. For the worker is worthy of his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
      ( Luke 10:6-7 )
    • For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known.

      ( Luke 12:2-3 )
    • But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.
      ( Luke 22:32 )
  2. Matthew
    • The Leaven to Beware
      When they crossed to the other side, the disciples forgot to take bread.
      “Watch out!” Jesus told them. “Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and Sadducees.”
      They discussed this among themselves and concluded, “It is because we did not bring any bread.”…
      ( Matthew 16:6 )
    • If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.
      ( Matthew 18:15-17 )

Conclusion

We claim we are speaking for God here.  And, not for ourselves.

If we want to speak for ourselves, there are plenty of materials and videos to speak on.

Spirit of Heaviness….

 

Scriptures

  1. Isaiah
    • Isaiah 61:3
      • To provide for them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.
        Link
  2. Psalm
    • Psalm 92:10
      • But You have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox; I have been anointed with fresh oil.
        • King David
  3. Ezekiel
    • Ezekiel 29:21
      • In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
  4. Joel
    • Joel 2:32
      • And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.
  5. 1 Timothy
    • 1 Timothy 4:1-2
      • The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
        Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
  6. 2 Samuel
    • 2 Samuel 3:39
      • And I am this day weak, though anointed king; and these men the sons of Zeruiah be too hard for me: the LORD shall reward the doer of evil according to his wickedness.
  7. John
    • John 6:63
      • It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
  8. Hebrews
    • Hebrews 4:12-13 King James Version (KJV)
      • For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.

Are Women Saved By Childbearing?

  1. Book of Thomas
    • The Gnostic Society Library – The Nag Hammadi Library – The Gospel of Thomas
      Link
      (18) The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us how our end will be.”
      Jesus said, “Have you discovered, then, the beginning, that you look for the end? For where the beginning is, there will the end be. Blessed is he who will take his place in the beginning; he will know the end and will not experience death.”
  2. Genesis 1:4
    • When Jesus walked the Sea of Galilee he was showing that he was God manifested
      • Genesis 1:2-4
        And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
      • And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
      • And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
  3. Oneness
    • I am not a oneness at all

Burdenless Christianity

Testimony

As an addendum, it pains me to see the extent that Christian leaders go to rid their congregations of pain for the lost and burden for those losing in so many facets of society.

We prepare carefully and lawyerly worded coded messages.

 

Ways

You say tell me in what ways:

  1. Abortion
    • Run to Washington for Pro-Life legislation
    • Leave out the message of Adoption
  2. Sexual Preferences
    • We take the place of the Holy Spirit and preach to each other, rather than those who we are supposedly trying to reach
  3. Prosperity Gospel
    • Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal ( Matthew 6:19 )
    • Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, Cease from your consideration of it. ( Proverbs 23:4 )
    • This is how it will be for anyone who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich toward God. ( Luke 12:21 )
    • Those who want to be rich, however, fall into temptation and become ensnared by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. ( 1 Timothy 6:9 )
    • Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business, and make a profit.”
      You do not even know what will happen tomorrow! What is your life? ( James 4:13 )
  4. Love & Fear ?
    • There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
      We love him, because he first loved us.
      If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
      And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
      ( 1 John 4:18-21 )
  5. Brotherly Love
    • If anyone with earthly possessions sees his brother in need, but withholds his compassion from him, how can the love of God abide in him? ( 1 John 3:17 )
  6. Hypocrites
    • Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You traverse land and sea to win a single convert, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as you are. ( Matthew 23:15)
  7. Apostolic Authority
    • Such people should consider that what we are in our letters when absent, we will be in our actions when present.
      We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they show their ignorance.
      We, however, will not boast beyond our limits, but only within the field of influence that God has assigned to us—a field that reaches even to you.… ( 2 Corinthians 10:12 )
  8. Righteousness
    • For I tell you that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. ( Matthew 5:20 )
  9. Borrower
    • Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you. ( Matthew 5:42 )
  10. Prosecution
    • Hear the word of the LORD, you who tremble at His word: “Your brothers who hate you, who exclude you for My name’s sake, Have said, ‘Let the LORD be glorified, that we may see your joy.’ But they will be put to shame. ( Isaiah 66:5 )
  11. Community
    • Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. ( Hebrews 10:25  )

 

That which is hidden

Therefore judge nothing before the proper time; wait until the Lord comes.
He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts.
At that time each will receive his praise from God. ( 1 Corinthians 4:5 ).

 

Old Testament

I know it is customarily these days to say we only follow the New Testament and so the Mosaic Law is done away with; including these ones…

Laws of Social Responsibility

If you lend money to My people, to the poor among you, you are not to act as a creditor to him; you shall not charge him interest.
If you ever take your neighbor’s cloak as a pledge, you are to return it to him before the sun sets,
for that is his only covering; it is his cloak for his body. What else shall he sleep in?
And it shall come about that when he cries out to Me, I will hear him, for I am gracious.…
( Exodus 22:25-27 )

Pained

Again, what are we pained by? Our adherence to Laws & Regulations.

We confuse the great commision with the great omission.

Forsook that the Love of God is what Leads to repentance, we argue that it is our Preaching, our Laws, our resoluteness.

 

Loving God

The Greatest Commandment

Deuteronomy 6:5

“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.

Matthew 22:37

…“Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in the Law?”
Jesus declared, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'”

 

Again, when one makes an argument one way or the other, those who are wise ought to be able and free to ask which tools of the being played a role in arriving at that decision.

Is it Love, Soul, Might, Mind…

 

Sola Scriptura

We deride gifts including Love and claim Scripture Only, Sola Scriptura.

What did Jesus die for? And, what are we dying for.

We skim over the fact that you do not have a word, if you do not have a burden.

Apologetics is good, but what are we arguing over.

Paul Wrote:

But reject foolish and ignorant speculation, for you know that it breeds quarreling.
And a servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome, but he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, and forbearing.
( 2 Timothy 2:23 )

I am sure that Paul had another word in mind, but thankfully the Holy Spirit got a bit ahead of him, and insisted on kindness first.

 

Leadership

Teaching?

  1. Old Testament
    • Therefore I said, Surely these are poor; they are foolish: for they know not the way of the LORD, nor the judgment of their God. ( Jeremiah 5:4 )
  2. New Testament
    • “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? ( John 3:10 )

 

Using words from one of my teachers:

  1. I am waiting for God to go through the Church, and say you are not a Christian, you are are not a Christian
  2. Pushing people down, because we have no authority to raise them up

 

Prophecy?

Some of these teachers do not have a word outside of Doomsday prophecy; that which is already being written thousands of years ago.

And, yet they refresh and repackage it as a new word.

  1. Spirit
    • When the Spirit of God says do not fear, they say yes fear
    • When the Spirit do not worry how to respond as “The Spirit will give you words“, they take over
  2. Quietness
    • But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge. ( Daniel 12:4 )
    • And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. ( Revelations 10:4 )

Rabbi?

  1. Scribes and Pharisees
    • Love the greetings in the marketplaces, and the title of “Rabbi” by which they are addressed.
      But you are not to be called “Rabbi,” for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers.
      ( Matthew 23:8 )

 

Prayer

I pray that we do not love “the praise of men more than the praise of God“.
