How long simple ones, who hate knowledge, will you love simplicity while the scorners delight in their scorning–Proverbs
Bible: Be diligent because the unlearned and unstable do not understand and fall unto their own destruction; and are led away by the error of the wicked
David Wilkerson: “And I believe that false doctrine by false teachers is sending more people to hell than all the drug pushers and all the booze sellers and all the atheists on the face of this earth. Did you hear what I said? You say that’s an overstatement. Not according to what I see. I’m going to say it again. False teachers and false preachers and false doctrine are sending more people to hell than all the drug pushers and all the pimps and prostitutes on the face of the earth.”
“… do it to blind Christians who are going to churches and singing and shouting and praising the Lord in churches that are enslaved by false doctrine and they don’t even know it. Thousands are sitting under this and they are having this Gospel poured into them; in fact, they are so blinded, going out and saying, “Yes, you were wonderful. Isn’t it glorious!” And they are blind that they are sitting under a false and completely false doctrine.“
“Now, please doesn’t take this matter lightly; or, otherwise His (Jesus) eyes wouldn’t be on fire (in the book of Revelation). And He comes to warn them, to expose, to save His people from seduction. And you and I had better get serious about it. Until you know, it is serious about where you go to church.”
23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.
8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
10 Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
11 Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing.
12 For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
13 For everyone that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil [the mind is renewed and trained to know the difference between good and evil; but those who are babies cannot discern the difference between good and evil].
25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof, like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the midst thereof.
26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profane Mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.
14 But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil [the mind is renewed and trained to know the difference between good and evil; but those who are babies cannot discern the difference between good and evil].
1 Kings 21:1-21–The doctrine of covetousness [the doctrine of Jezebel]
1 And it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria.
2 And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
3 And Naboth said to Ahab, The Lord forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee.
4 And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.
5 But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread?
6 And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.
7 And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite. THE PROSPERITY DOCTRINE–I WILL GET IT FOR YOU. USING A DOCTRINE TO JUSTIFY NOT TALKING ABOUT SIN, RIGHTEOUSNESS JUDGMENT AND HELL AND THE LAKE OF FIRE.
USING GOD’S WORD TO PUT A BADGE OF APPROVAL ON COVETOUSNESS:
14 Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth is stoned, and is dead.
15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead.
6 And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.
17 And the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
18 Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it.
19 And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the Lord, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the Lord, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.
20 And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the Lord.
21 Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel,
1 Kings 18:38-39
38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.
1 Kings 19:1-2
19 1And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword.
2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time. [A WORD OF REPROOF THAT MOST NOW CALL A MESSAGE OF DOOM OR NEGATIVITY]
MANY DO NOT WANT TO HEAR THE TRUTH:
24 But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward.
25 Since the day that your fathers came forth out of the land of Egypt unto this day I have even sent unto you all my servants the prophets, daily rising up early and sending them:
26 Yet they hearkened not unto me, nor inclined their ear, but hardened their neck: they did worse than their fathers.
27 Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee.
28 But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the Lord their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
THE DOCTRINE OF JESUS CHRIST IS BEING TAUGHT; OTHERWISE FALSE DOCTRINE IS BEING TAUGHT:
10 Not purloining (stealing from the congregation), but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. 11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present age [time outside the realm of eternity]; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.
1 Timothy 6:3-4
3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;
4 He is proud, knowing NOTHING but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings,
