18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own bellies [lusts and desires]; and by fair speaking and captivating language deceive the hearts of the simple.
|2 Peter 2:1-3|
1 But just as there were false prophets among the people in those times, so there will be false teachers among you, who will subtly and elusively introduce destructive, distorted teachings, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring swift destruction upon themselves. [It is not what one says that makes Jesus their Lord or Master, but their deeds — disregard and disobedience of His teachings and commands denies him as Lord and Master. From the Word of the Lord within: "Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master."]
2 And many will follow their destructive ways, and because of them the way of truth will be maligned.
3 And in their covetousness they will make merchandise of you with deceptive words; from long ago their judgment has not been idle, and their damnation has not slumbered.1 [For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, especially of the circumcision whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole households, teaching things they ought not to teach for filthy lucre's sake. Titus 1:10-11.]
|2 Timothy 4:3-4|
3 For the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap [accumulate in piles] to themselves teachers after their own lusts, who will say what their itching ears want to hear; [In Christianity today there are millions of blind-guide preachers and blind-guide teachers in the ditch, along with their billions of captive followers, whom they have led into the ditch; the blind guides' lies have been preached by so many for so long, their lies have become pervasive in all of Christianity. From the Word of the Lord within: "Just like Judaism was taken over by the enemy, so has Christianity, which is corrupt through and through. There is no church in the world that Christ set up specifically. Like Daniel, you are captive of the Chaldeans. Your place of worship is filled with unclean birds." (Unclean birds are fallen, corrupted angels — demons.)]
4 And they will turn their ears away from the truth, and will be turned to fables.1 [The whole world has been turned to the fables of make-believe Christianity, the Whore of Babylon, riding the beast of many names, with horns like a lamb; believing the fable of consequence-free sin through the transfer of the meaning of grace from the truth: that with repentance the Spirit of God commands us to deny lusts and ungodliness, as it purifies us to live a soberly, godly life in this present world —transferred instead to the twisted fable that grace excuses all past, present, and future sins in believers, thereby excusing believers to live in their lusts and pride as they please with no laws; which was predicted here and in Revelation. From the Word of the Lord within: "They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. The enemy is in all of Christianity. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. People must stand the price for their very brazen behavior. All men are without excuse. If I were silent, they would have an excuse; every man has heard the call to repent. Do you agree with any who in their arrogance have stated that God excuses evil in believers? It's not fair, but they don't care."]
4 For there are certain men who have crept in unnoticed, written about long ago, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lawlessness and wantonness, a license for immorality; and deny and disown our only Master and Lord Jesus Christ.2 [These men transferred the meaning of grace from the truth: that with repentance the Spirit of God commands us to deny lusts and ungodliness as it purifies us to be able to live a soberly, godly life in this present world — transferred instead to the twisted lie that grace excuses all past, present, and future sins in believers, thereby excusing believers to live in their lusts and pride as they please with no laws. The false church has made the blood of Jesus an excuse for evil; therefore they have made His blood an unholy thing; and so they trample on the son of God and show contempt for grace. Heb 10:29. It is not what one says that makes Jesus their Lord or Master, but their deeds. By claiming grace excuses all continuing to sin, these men denied and disowned Jesus as their Lord and Master, who said, "repent or perish, and sin no more." From the Word of the Lord within: "Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. Do you agree with any who in their arrogance have stated that God excuses evil in believers? It's not fair, but they don't care. They have taken the Bible and made it an unholy thing used to justify their immersion in sin. They would have no laws. The new law became unrighteousness. Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand." Peter identified the false christian leaders of his time also: "For speaking great swelling words of vanity, they lure through the lusts of the flesh and much wantonness, those who were barely escaping from those who live in error. Although these false teachers promise them liberty, they themselves are the slaves of corruption [sin, immorality]; for by whatever a man is overcome, he is enslaved." 2 Peter 2:18-19. False teachers promise liberty to continue in sin, but Jesus said, "Truly, Truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin." John 8:34. The wages of sin is death. Rom 6:23. Not only has Christianity made grace a license for immorality, but Christianity has caused their believers' consciences to be seared as with a hot iron, leaving them indifferent to sin and evil. There is a liberty for a crucified son of God, free from all sin, walking in love and fulfilling the law; but until you are free from all sin, you are subject to being banned from heaven when you die.]
5 Therefore I will remind you, though you once knew this, how the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. [The Law of Sin and Death is voided only when have crucified your sinful mind and spirit; consequence-free sin is make-believe Christianity. From the Word of the Lord within: "Do not be confused; do not be misled; you must break a suspected action. Consequence-free sin does not exist; the consequences are truly staggering. There is a war you must win; sin must be overcome; the fleshly lusts war against your soul."]
8 These filthy dreamers also defile the flesh, reject authority, and speak evil of dignities. [2000 years ago, Jude speaks of a few men who had infiltrated the true Christians, preaching their false message that grace excused all past, present, and future sins. Today grace, being a license for immorality, is the 400 year-old cornerstone of Protestant doctrine. Therefore Christendom is now full of filthy dreamers: filthy because their hearts are defiled with all manner of sins they still commit with disregard to the Lord's many warnings and requirements, and dreaming that they are saved and righteous. The Roman and orthodox sects are similarly full of filthy dreamers who dream that their heathenish masses, confessions, penance, and eucharists expiate the sin from their filthy defiled hearts, which rituals the Lord has described as conflagration, (great destruction). From the Word of the Lord within: "Christianity has no idea what I am or for what I stand. The enemy is in all of Christendom. Everyone is expecting Jesus to be their excuse. They are a stubborn people; their hearts have waxed cold. They think to be saved by making a noise about being saved. They are a clueless, fruitless people. All are filthy dreamers."]
|1 John 3:6-8 |
6 Whoever abides in him does not sin; whoever sins has not seen Him or known Him. [To abide in Him, is to live in Him: to be in union with Him. You cannot be still sinning and know God or see God. Sin includes: anger, sexual immorality, lust, ambition, greed, envy, pride, partying, foolishness, profanity, lying, hating, dishonesty, cheating, etc. From the Word of the Lord within: "If all that profess me, would possess me. Remember, every person who sins denies Him as Lord and Master. Do you know him or just pretend to know him; to know him is to have met him and listened to him. Seek the meeting." When you have been freed from all sin and are pure, you see Him, which is to see the glory of God in the face of Christ Jesus, the substance and image of the invisible God. Then you truly know Him. Until then: "You worship what you do not know." John 4:22.]
7 Little children, let no man deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, even as He is righteous.3 [Jesus only spoke, judged, and did as He was prompted and ordered by God; to practice righteousness we also must be able to only speak what we hear Him order us to say and only do what we are ordered to do by God. This ability only comes after we have crucified our selfish spirit, as sin has been destroyed by the Spirit through bearing the inward cross of self-denial; then we are walking the same way He walked and in the world as He was with perfection, purity, and holiness. Everyone who practices righteousness is born of him, 1 John 2:29. — The Greek in this verse for little children is Teknia <5040>; these are yet to be freed from sin and without salvation.]
8 He who commits sin is of the devil, for the devil sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works [sin] of the devil.4 [Let no man deceive you, saying that you can still be sinning and belong to God; those still sinning serve the devil. Christ is revealed in our flesh to destroy the works of the devil, by condemning the secret sins in our heart, and then destroying even our desire to sin. Paul confirms Jesus destroying the works of the devil in each purified believer: "the God of peace shall crush Satan under your feet shortly." Rom 16:20.]
