Warning –False Teachers!

religious_spirit2

There  are way too many False Teachers out there these days.  Many of them sound excellent — they pray with people, share dreams/visions and read the Gospel.  The problem is that some of them have a “religious” demonic spirit attached to them, and it’s always not obvious.  Some of them may not even be aware that this is true for themselves.

Be very careful of those that proclaim they can teach you something that is freely given by the Holy Spirit.  RED FLAG!  We must be open to receiving the gifts of the Holy Spirit and be LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT.

There is no “magic prayer”,  no “do this and this will happen” example to follow.   The Gifts of the Holy Spirit are not to be used like “Dorothy’s ruby slippers”!

I don’t think most understand that Satan can bring about false wonders for the purpose of fooling God’s Children.

Not all false teachers and preachers are well known.  Some don’t have Television Shows or radio broadcasts and some are simply “the neighbor next door”. 

We simply must have 100% faith in the Lord — that’s it!  

put_Jesus_first

We are to come to the Lord just as we are.  We don’t need a stack of man’s doctrines and magical “Gifts of the spirit” formulas to follow.  We don’t need man’s printed prayers.  We just need to let go & let God do his work in us through his son Jesus.  It’s simple and yet so many make this complicated!   All the Lord really wants from us is to repent daily and truly Love him.  If we truly Love the Lord, we will eventually become his representatives; we will hear and obey his assignments for us.

Matthew 24:24
For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

Mark 13:22
For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.


 

Exposing the False Teachers  — This excerpt was taken from from https://www.biblegateway.com/resources/commentaries/IVP-NT/Gal/Exposing-False-Teachers 
Second, false teachers replace the call of God with their own deceptive persuasiveness (v. 8). That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you, Paul informs his readers. When Paul had preached the gospel, the Galatians heard the voice of God calling them through Paul (1:6). But when the false teachers teach, all that can be heard is flattery, boastfulness and empty rhetoric. They are skillful orators. No doubt they claim to be giving God’s message backed by Scripture. But all one can hear through their strident voices is a harsh repetition of the demands of the law. What a contrast to “the one who called you by the grace of Christ” (1:6) and the God who “called me by his grace” (1:15). Their message is all about the works of the law, not about God’s work of grace in Christ. So obviously their persuasion does not come from God, who always calls by his grace.

  1. Here is the verification we need that the Holy Spirit teaches.

    1 John 2:26-27King James Version (KJV)

    26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.

    27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

    So what more…….Amen

    1. Stig-Ove, thank you for the biblical reference! I have been praying for the salvation of a family member whom I love so very much. I looked at another’s prayers for family saved. I just need faith that the Lord hears my prayers, emphasis my prayers and not a formula prayer. It is very hard to see someone we love being deceived. I will fully trust in my Lord and Savior, Jesus.

  2. Hello everyone. I want to make it clear that the purpose of this post was not to “bash” anyone sharing prayers in the form of links or anything else. I totally agree in the Power of Prayer. We just need to be careful of repeating prayers authored by others, over and over again. When we do not come to the Lord in prayer using our own words (by our native tongue or in prayer language), we are at risk of sending out empty prayers. We become much like those attending Churches that repeat the same things and start to fall asleep. We’ve all seen or been in a church where the preacher/minister says a prayer and has you say something back. That was my point here. Just be yourselves and take the leading from the Holy Spirit and not man.

  3. This is my first post here and I want to thank you, JC, for your timely post. I was listening to a radio blog last night that did a ‘commercial’ for another minister’s CD on how to speak with tongues. The CD was highly recommended for more effective prayer. I read all through this ministers website and wasn’t entirely comfortable with some of his points and verbiage used. However, I backed off from buying the CD because I felt that if God wanted me to speak in tongues as I pray I would be blessed in that way. No man can claim the authority on the gifts of the Spirit. I am very happy to find you in agreement this morning that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are freely given. Not purchased by one with a ‘magic formula’. Thank you!

      1. Welcome to the blog, Kathleen. Please come back and comment.
        You can also “see us” in the past posts on “Believeacts2 Blog.”
        You can access that by clicking JC’s “Blogs I follow.”
        JC’s sister hosted that blog (which is now closed to comments), but still is full of wonderful pertinent information!

  4. Welcome Kathleen !!! JC spot on post and comment about repeating empty prayers !!! there are times when I can think of nothing to pray in response, so to do that would be forcing a false prayer with no power – that is when the Holy spirit takes over for us? And other times it just flows with no effort and I know then it is from Him .

    1. Why thank you Michael im flattered. This blog is probably the best thing that has happened to me in say 8 years and i really mean it!

      Because people really have the Spirit of the Lord here. There is prayer, guidance, general and advanced discussions, jokes you name it.

      Michael is an Arizonan who at some blog post was identified as an tanned Californian.
      He understands prayer, scripture and old tractors only a few things more a man needs.

      This is a good place Kathleen dont let this finnish barbarian scare you 🙂

      1. Stig, you talk tough but we all know you are a big ol’ teddy bear, with a heart of gold! You are truly finer than frog’s hair. Finnish barbarian, roflcgu!!!!!

        Welcome Kathleen, you are in a safe place where our love language is LOVE! We Love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit with all our being. Love our families, virtual families too, our neighbors (sigh, even the one who lets their dog poo in our yard), we love our countries, and the wounded, broken-hearted and lost. I probably forgot something. Wait, oh yeah, and we Love chocolate!

        Stick around, pull a lawn chair over to the bonfire. We are making s’mores tonight.. Ugh, WAIT! not there, grrr neighbor’s dog! Ok, there you go, sit back make a s’more, praise, worship, hear the precious word of God. I think God chuckles when he sees this Odd for Jesus group. Lifting hands in worship that are sticky with marshmellow, and singing, sometimes slightly off key and, Good Grief Michael you have chocolate and marshmellow all over your face boy. Takes out her hankie, spits on it and smudges the goopy mess around. There that’s better! Deb resumes loudly singing “Jesus loves me this I know”. Sorry it’s my favorite song.

        Hope you see y’all soon, God willing and the creeks don’t rise.

    2. Thanks, Michael. I’ve read many comments over the past couple of months on Acts2 blog by Linda before coming over here. You all are a wonderful group. I have only recently made one comment on another blog. I’m always reading just not commenting. This post really means something to me coming from a catholic background. Absolutely no criticisms. I was called to a relationship with our Lord and to follow the scriptures.

  6. Amen Kathleen !!! wonderful news you brought. JC is not old enough to be Moses but he is our moderator and herds the flock – Like Stig-Ove said, Deb Christine , Kenzel , Peggy, Vicki and Increase Glory (please Lord let me not have forgotten anyone) are warriors for specific areas of Insight that He has blessed them with – we took the torch from Linda as she passed it – Stig -Ove is our mighty rear guard that has the crews back 🙂 you, Kathleen, will find your place here as will anyone else that is ready to jump in. Many read these posts and will be brought in as they are lead just like you! This is a blessed and unique site put here by Him. We give Him all the praise !!!!

    1. Amen and Amen, Michael. That is all so true. Each is a special soul that the Lord is calling into close personal relationship with HIMSELF in these last days and hours. HE would have NONE to perish (end up in an eternal hell of torment). ALL have a place and special gifts regardless of how long or short their relationship is with the Lord. JUMP IN, everyone. We all learn from each other!

      God Bless you especially at this time, Kathleen.
      Prayers are with you.

      1. Thank you for the warm welcome. I hope to learn more and grow closer to Him each and every day. I’m not as long in studying the scriptures as all of you but I’m just in love with Psalms and Ephesians! Funny thing if you can believe this, but I wasn’t able to remember what was where in scripture in the past but now I can know where many verses are in the Bible when listening to Christian music. God gets all the glory! I just wish my family members could get away from false teachings and understand the peace and joy I know but can’t explain despite the potential worrisome issues going on in our world at this time.

  7. Amen Kathleen !!! Im not a “seasoned vet” either but how He purifies us in these last days accelerates everything – all we do is say “yes” and He does some amazing things to us in so little time. And we all have the” not on board” family members here too !!! May you be blessed here with the amazing things He has taught the others – how to pray, – spiritual warfare – and you will be.
