With apologies to those who don’t know what I’m referencing, please bear with me patiently me while I state what should be obvious to anyone who loves Yeshua/Jesus!
Unless you have read, heard or witnessed something for yourself, you must be very careful that you do not find yourself working against the Lord Yeshua/Jesus! God hates a false witness, and those who see the work of God and say it is of the devil are committing blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. We will be called to account for every careless word we speak. God knows the intent of our hearts.
Some of you are listening to defamatory words without doing one iota of investigation on your own. You are throwing away precious gifts that God gave because of fear that the devil is so strong that he can fool everyone! There is no such thing as a ministry of “against-ness”. Even though some of what you hear may be true, a widely scattered shotgun effect is being used to wrangle in lots of other folks who have nothing to do with the current fight. I repeat, if you did not read, hear or witness something for yourself, you must be very careful that you do not find yourself working against the Lord Yeshua!
Do your own research! Ask the Holy Spirit to give you new eyes to read the BIBLE, and you will see that the things you are up in arms against are counterfeits of something REAL!
I met Jesus in 1971. I’ve seen all manner of false messiahs and false “two witnesses” and false apostles, and false healers, and false prophets, and false teachers, and false miracle workers, and I’m sure I’ll see more. But I’ve seen the real as well! I’ve died three times and I’ve met Yeshua! He called me to raise my granddaughter from the dead when she was very small. I have seen and done many other things that I consider to be a normal part of life as a disciple of Yeshua, because my job is to obey Him when He told me to heal the sick, raise the dead, preach the gospel, and baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit!
Yes, we will see brothers and sisters get off the track, and LOVE WILL BRING THEM BACK MUCH SOONER THAN GOSSIP, SLANDER AND PUSHING THEM INTO A CORNER! I know that we are called to love one another, and LOVE COVERS A MULTITUDE OF SINS. Our prayers for each other should be as fervent as the ones we pray for ourselves or our loved ones, because Yeshua said that we who call ourselves His disciples would be known for the love we have for one another. He prescribed a way to bring a matter before a brother, and it was not the way things are done on the Internet these days. If you call yourself a disciple of Yeshua, then obey your master!
A word to the wise should be sufficient!
Matthew 12:14-50 NKJV
Then the Pharisees went out and plotted against Him, how they might destroy Him. (15) But when Jesus knew it, He withdrew from there. And great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all. (16) Yet He warned them not to make Him known, (17) that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: (18) “BEHOLD! MY SERVANT WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN, MY BELOVED IN WHOM MY SOUL IS WELL PLEASED! I WILL PUT MY SPIRIT UPON HIM, AND HE WILL DECLARE JUSTICE TO THE GENTILES. (19) HE WILL NOT QUARREL NOR CRY OUT, NOR WILL ANYONE HEAR HIS VOICE IN THE STREETS. (20) A BRUISED REED HE WILL NOT BREAK, AND SMOKING FLAX HE WILL NOT QUENCH, TILL HE SENDS FORTH JUSTICE TO VICTORY; (21) AND IN HIS NAME GENTILES WILL TRUST.” (22) Then one was brought to Him who was demon-possessed, blind and mute; and He healed him, so that the blind and mute man both spoke and saw. (23) And all the multitudes were amazed and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” (24) Now when the Pharisees heard it they said, “This fellow does not cast out demons except by Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.” (25) But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand. (26) If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then will his kingdom stand? (27) And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they shall be your judges. (28) But if I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. (29) Or how can one enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man? And then he will plunder his house. (30) He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad. (31) “Therefore I say to you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven men, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven men. (32) Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come. (33) “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. (34) Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. (35) A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. (36) But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. (37) For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.” (38) Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” (39) But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. (40) For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (41) The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here. (42) The queen of the South will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and indeed a greater than Solomon is here. (43) “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. (44) Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. (45) Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.” (46) While He was still talking to the multitudes, behold, His mother and brothers stood outside, seeking to speak with Him. (47) Then one said to Him, “Look, Your mother and Your brothers are standing outside, seeking to speak with You.” (48) But He answered and said to the one who told Him, “Who is My mother and who are My brothers?” (49) And He stretched out His hand toward His disciples and said, “Here are My mother and My brothers! (50) For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.”
If they did it to Yeshua, they will do it to you. Don’t you be the one to do it to others!
