Prove It For Yourself!

The Lord has had this on my heart for quite some time now to publish this article on our site. I have taught this in different facets in the printed version of Heartbeat Christian News many times. 1Thessalonians 5:21 “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.” Remember, Jesus taught us that He came ONLY to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And remember, Jesus is the Word made flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14). God gave us the tools we needed to make sure that no man could deceive us. Matthew 24:4 “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” God gave us the original King James Version of the Holy Bible and the Holy Ghost so that no man could deceive us unless we let him. Man here is in reference to persons in general. It is very important to understand though that you cannot hear (understand) the spiritual revelation of the word of God without a preacher sent by God. Or Jesus wouldn’t have wasted His breath when He commanded Peter to feed His sheep. Which meant to properly break the bread from heaven and that being the word of God, rightly divided.

What the Lord would have me strongly exhort you to do is to make certain that you aren’t idolizing the preacher/preachers you are following! God put the onus on every one of us to prove all things we hear preached by His Word (original KJV) and the Holy Ghost. Remember, it’s the Holy Ghost that leads and guides us into ALL truth and righteousness. It doesn’t matter who the preacher is. Meaning if it is your dad, mom, best friend or any other person, you better make sure they are preaching THE truth. Because God Almighty is not going to make any exceptions for you in the day of judgment if you have listened to a lying preacher. Again I say, there are way too many Christians idolizing their preachers these days. Remember, God’s true preachers are guides and ensamples; not lords over God’s flock. So if you have any doubts as to whether or not you are in this number, you best seek God diligently to make sure you are not. Your soul is at stake and hell is a very real place.
