Understanding Biblical Teachings On Christian Living From Denominational Church Doctrines
Understanding Biblical Teachings On Christian Living From Denominational Church Doctrines
Text: John 1:1 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
Psalms 119:89 “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.”
Psalms 119:103 How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged 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.”
Most of the Christians today especially those not thoroughly, genuinely and sincerely grounded in the word of God, misconstrue the teachings and practices of true holiness, truth, obedience and righteousness, by genuinely born again Christians, as a denominational church doctrine. No! You are mistaken.
Being born again John 3:3, as it is claimed today by supposed Christians go beyond mere mouth declarations, proclamations and religious behavioural performances/showmanship. To be born again entails the complete yieldedness of the body, soul and spirit to the total dictates of the word of God.
Now in order to get a better understanding of living a true Christian life, we must therefore associate ourselves with the TRUTH which Jesus Christ and the bible represents John 14:6; 17:17. This is to further ensure that we know this truth for everyone to be set free John 8:32 from the lies of the devil concerning obedience to the word of God John 8:44.
Again, we must also know that the bible is God HIMSELF John 1:1. Therefore your wilful disobedience to the standards of the written WORD which is holy and pure 2 Timothy 3:15, Psalm 119:140, and given by the Holy Spirit through holy men 2 Peter 1:20-21, which were written by the inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness 2 Timothy 3:16, will be so damning, and condemning yourself towards the righteousness of God Daniel 9:14, Romans 10:3, and is capable of leading your soul to the damnation in hell fire Revelation 22:19.
The major reason for the continuous disobedience of the word of God by men today, is the fact that men are now yielding themselves as instruments of unrighteousness, by establishing their own righteousness through denominational church doctrines Romans 10:3 “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.”
These human imposed church doctrines therefore will never allow them to obey the word of God as they are operating in carnality and never in the spirit. Romans 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.” 1 Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
Otherwise, how do you reconcile the various denominational church doctrines today being practice by the different churches in total opposite of the biblical injunctions as spelt out by Jesus Chris and Apostle Paul as regarding ONE LORD?
Mark 12:29 “And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord.” Ephesians 4:5 “One Lord, one faith, one baptism.”
The denominational churches today do not present God as one LORD at all. Denomination A is practicing the bible differently from denomination B, and both of them are claiming to be serving the same God. Isn't this a clear manifestation of unbiblical practices, doctrines and commandments of men and an indication that they don't actually know God? Colossians 2:22, 1 Timothy 4:1. No wonder Paul chided the Christians of Athens, as their services, offerings, tithes, devotions, worship, obedience and sacrifices were made and dedicated to an unknown god, due to their ignorance of the worship of the true God. Acts 17:23 “For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.”
In the meantime, if you claim to be a born again Christian and Holy Spirit filled, but your dressing lifestyle, attitudes, speeches, conducts and behaviours are patterned after the rudiments of this world, then you are a true born against Christian and never a born again Christian at all. This is because the friendship of this world and inseparableness from the operations and standards of this world is enmity against God James 4:4, 2 Corinthians 6:14-17.
When I was growing up in the faith, we used to identify any female without trousers, makeup, earrings, hair extensions, perming, nail/mouth painting and proper tying of the hair with scarf as ‘deeper life’ members. This is even though we don’t know the lady in question about her religion not to talk of her church denomination if she was a Christian. The conclusion over such women by then was that, anybody that is not a deeper life member was not a true Christian because, they possess what other supposed Christian women lack – decent and moderate dress life. In fact even right now, you will still mistaken any true born again Christian sister without the use of the devilish materials on their bodies as a deeper life member, even though such a sister has never been to any deeper life church whatsover. Why? Because of the simple but godly dress lifestyle of such a sister.
Now, to allude such a godly dressing Christian lifestyle of a true born again sister as a doctrine of the deeper life church is pure ignorance of the word of God. The bible says in 2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Go and study your bible and you will soon discover that the people you are even calling heroes of faith today due to their supposed long time walk with God are nothing but pure rebellious souls against God. From their physical appearance to the conduct of their Christian service, all you will see are fake characters of a supposed Christian.
How can the Almighty God says ‘Ye are gods’ Psalm 82:6 and Jesus Christ our LORD reaffirmed it while on earth John 10:34, and yet you don’t resemble Him in holiness and righteousness and claim to belong to Him? Didn’t God created you in His own image and likeness? Genesis 1:27. How can the son of the Lion of the tribe of Judah become a goat? Is this possible? You are just a liar and that is what God calls you in 1 John 4:20.
Therefore to remind you that God expects complete obedience to Him in everything Isaiah 42:8, you must be holy in all your conduct because God is holy 1 Peter 1:15-16. Your holiness must be total without any form of defilement whatsoever Revelation 21:27, Ephesians 5:27, both in your body, soul and spirit Romans 12:1-2, 1 Thessalonians 5:23. You must also realize that as the Almighty God is interested in the holiness of your heart Joel 2:13, he is also interested in the holiness of your body because you are not the owner of your body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit today 1 Corinthians 6:19. How therefore do you expect the Holy Spirit to reside in an unholy body with all forms of filthiness and defilement?
Moreover, if you had been seeing true Christians not using the instruments of sin and wickedness in their body (makeup, weaveon, attachment, wedding rings, jewelries, earrings, bangles, fake nails, painting fingers and faces, high heels, eyebrow, mini skirts, women wearing trousers, spaghetti, and all other jezebelic and satanic seductive materials), please don’t mistaken them as keeping a mere denominational church doctrine no, they are instead obedient children of the most high God. I pray you will become one today if you are not right now in Jesus name.
Furthermore, to prove your identity as a true born again you claimed to be, you must put on the new man who is created in righteousness and true holiness. Ephesians 4:24 “And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.” You must also come to prove that ‘old things’ are truly passed away 2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Remember, you can only be set free by the truth you know. John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Don’t also forget that the expectation of God concerning you is to FEAR Him, obey HIM and keep all HIS commandments. Ecclesiastes 12:13 “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” John 14:15 “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
Read these few passages of the scriptures below concerning the WORD of God prayerfully and it shall be well with you.
God bless you.
