Playing It Safe With Another Gospel

by John and Ruth Greene

God's Word“Yahshua [Jesus] answered him, ‘If anyone loves Me, he shall guard My Word. And My Father shall love him, and We shall come to him and make Our stay with him.’” – John 14:23, ISR98

How a world of religious people and organized religion has been shown up, and it’s not a happy state of affairs. (Luke 9:23; John 14:15, 21) Certainly, all fall short of Elohim’s [YHWH] splendor, but today most of those that claim to be leaders or that fill positions of leadership walk the other way. They are teaching another gospel foreign to Messiah, an antichrist, antimessiah counterfeit! (2 Timothy 2:15, 4:4-5; 1 Corinthians 15:1; 2 Corinthians 11:3-4; Galatians 1:6-9; Titus 1:14) The evidence is clear, visible in the spiritual fruitage of the people. (Matthew 13:23; Luke 8:4-15; Galatians 5:22-26; “Disciple of Messiah: Are You Bearing Fruit?“; “Hardened Hearts: Strengthening the Brotherhood in Messiah“)

All of this examination, this unveiling of truth, is not about beating yourself up or about judging someone else. It’s about being personally justified through YHWH’s righteousness. Scripture tells the disciple of Messiah what to do based on YHWH’s principles. It’s about examining yourself and what is going on about you. (1 John 1:9; Psalm 86:5; Micah 6:8) Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah assures salvation one person at a time. Some say that ‘to listen to the Church is to listen to the Lord of the Church.’ When a group of professed Christians that claim to follow ‘Christ’ aren’t following Him, where does this lead you when you are following after someone else? (Matthew 15:12-14, 23:23-30; Luke 6:39) I hope you get our point. Most are simply pretending to do what someone else says for their own selfish reasons, mostly relating to things of the world. (Matthew 7:13-14; Romans 12:1-2; “The Need to Keep Spiritually Clean“; “Messiah Teaches about Fruit in the Lives of People“; “The Bible & Higher Authority“; “What is the Standard of Life Conduct in a Disciple of Messiah?“)

Judeo-Christian ethicYou are in a great deal of trouble unless you align yourself with YHWH. (Deuteronomy 11:18-21; Psalm 34:19; Jeremiah 33:6; Matthew 12:36-37; John 5:24; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:12-15) You listen and do what your Savior and Master instructed. (Mark 9:2-9; John 5:36-40; Romans 8:1) In this way, you become accountable before the Most High in knowledge instead of following after the traditions of man. This isn’t simply Bible-based learning, thinking and discernment, but rather, the mind of Messiah wholly focused on scriptures set out in the Bible. (Mark 7:6-8; Luke 19:10; John 1:12; Philippians 2:3-7; 1 John 5:12; Ephesians 4:30; 1 Corinthians 2:10-16) You take your information directly from the Word instead of diluting it or making it a counterfeit. (2 Timothy 2:15, 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13) You live your life honestly rather than through dishonesty; not through a moral code of man based on a “Judeo-Christian ethic,” but through the living Word of YHWH. Elohim [YHWH, Son, Set-Apart ‘Holy’ Spirit] is your Source. (John 3:36; 1 John 5:11-13; Titus 3:5-7) This is exactly what so many leaders are afraid of. They lose their importance and the ability to profit from you. Some would mold you to fit their political needs, as users. That’s history. To have a direct relationship with Elohim gets in the way of worldly power. It threatens the power of the hierarchy of man. ‘God first’ is seen as a threat to the order of authority. (John 14:15-17; Acts 4:12; Philippians 3:8-9; “Listening and Doing as a Disciple“; “Seeking a New Spirit“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

halo effectThis isn’t about the ‘halo effect,’ (Matthew 6:8, 31-33) reported to be the difference between what people tell others and what they actually do. (Matthew 9:13, 20:27-28; John 12:25-26; Romans 6:20-22; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20) Most people tend to paint themselves better than what they are. (Ephesians 3:1-12; Isaiah 60:1-6) When the ‘church’ assembles, a disconnect has been happening from long ago. They have forgotten the purpose and the need beyond the enrichment of the clergy. No wonder, as this ‘other gospel’ simply doesn’t satisfy or bring eternal life. (Galatians 1:8-9; Romans 2:16) A great falling away has been underway for quite some time, right in line with Bible prophecy. This shouldn’t concern disciples as long as they aren’t falling away based on what YHWH’s Word says. (2 Thessalonians 2:3; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; John 1:12; Ephesians 2:8-9; Matthew 24:10-13; 1 Timothy 4:1) In the same way, much of modern society has drifted apart where the ‘traditional family’ and friends are concerned, which has also been foretold, along with this era of information. (Matthew 24:4-14; Daniel 12:1-4; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; 1 Peter 4:8-9; “Disciple: Live Your Belief“; “Bible Truth: What is a Christian?“)

small Bible studyThe North American Mission Board says that for most Americans “the primary form of spiritual nourishment is meeting with a small group of 20 or less people every week.” (Matthew 18:20; Acts 5:42; Galatians 6:10; James 5:16; Hebrews 10:24-25; 1 Thessalonians 5:11; Proverbs 27:17; Ecclesiastes 4:12) This is similar in style to first century disciples of Messiah, who met together in smaller tight knit groups often. (Acts 2:46, 20:20) The Bible calls all disciples to closer relationships and sharing. For many, this ‘bad news’ about the ‘church’ is not a spiritual crisis, but the recognition of scriptural order by approximately a quarter of professing Christians in the United States (and perhaps in other lands as well). (Ephesians 2:4-7; Galatians 5:22; Romans 5:1-5; Colossians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 3:16) This is not unique for those that love their Heavenly Father and the gift of eternal life through Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah, those that seek His Truth. (Romans 10:6-10) For many analysts, this is about ‘consumer culture,’ but the reality is that corporate church buildings are not typically serving a real function for unapologetic Christians who will no longer sit among those that want to play church with a diluted gospel that isn’t a gospel at all, to be manipulated by corporate pastors and politicians. These firm Christians are disciples of the Messiah, unapologetic in a personal stand for the Master as they allow the Holy Spirit to work through them to live their belief. (Hebrews 2:1; 1 Corinthians 11:28, 31, 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 13:5; Revelation 3:3; “What Is Washing By The Word?“; “A Mind of Envy and Competition“; “Messiah & the Tool of Envy“)

Divine CounselorArguably, billions of professed Christians have been playing it safe throughout the historical record with a ‘godly devotion’ that doesn’t have YHWH’s power through the Holy Spirit. (John 14:15-17, 25-26, Acts 2:1-4; Galatians 5:22-25; 1 Corinthians 12:4-11) The ‘church’ has retreated they say… and why not? (1 John 2:19-27) Multitudes have been discouraged, even misinformed about the whole truth of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah, even their personal need to take a stand and what that means. They have missed the power of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of His Spirit. Many have died in ignorance through errant teaching and unbelief. This is the tragedy of our age since the Master was sacrificed, one that unapologetic disciples of the Messiah must expect to undo while they can. (Matthew 28:18-20) The Holy Spirit has been ignored, as the teacher of every disciple, a vital link to YHWH and His written Word. The Holy Spirit is not to be ashamed of, nor apologized for. (John 6:63; Acts 7:51; 1 John 5:6, 14:26; Romans 8:16, 27; Ephesians 4:30; 2 Corinthians 3:16-18, 5:16-18; Revelation 2:7; “Healing: What YHWH Wants for You!“; “Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“)

“But the Helper, the Set-apart [Holy, Sanctified] Spirit, whom the Father shall send in My Name, He shall teach you all, and remind you of all that I said to you.” – John 14:26, ISR98

Hundred of thousands of honest-hearted Christians are realizing that they are actually disciples of the Messiah. Myriads more stay within the safety zone set out by their church leaders through deception. (Matthew 24:4-5; Acts 20:29-31; Galatians 6:7-8; James 1:12-16; 1 Corinthians 6:8-10, 15:33-34; 2 Corinthians 11:2-4) How delighted Elohim is to see your positive response to His unadulterated Kingdom. (Matthew 5:20, 7:21, 18:2-3; Luke 13:5-9; Mark 9:47; John 3:5; Ephesians 5:1-7; Colossians 3:5-7) Disciples of Messiah are coming to know that they must be renewed in heart and mind, set apart through the power of the Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 3:9-11; Romans 6:6; 2 Corinthians 5:17) They seek their Heaven Father and His Kingdom personally. (Luke 11:9-10; John 6:37; James 4:8) This age that we live in isn’t all about bad news, but about Elohim’s Kingdom reaching the ends of the earth and the unveiling of That Kingdom. (Acts 17:26-28) As for the time that disciples spend, let it not be wasted! Remember too, that life renewal never ends in a world full of demonic influence. (1 Corinthians 1:18-31; 1 John 4:1) It’s a daily battle, but worthy nonetheless, as disciples around the world make every effort to do as Yahshua [Jesus] told His disciples while there is still time, and to wait patiently for YHWH’s Kingdom to come. (Galatians 5:19-21; John 16:2-3; Habakkuk 2:4; Psalm 51:10-12; 1 Corinthians 10:13; 2 Corinthians 7:1; “Are You Rejecting YHWH’s Holy Spirit?“; “Understanding Sin“)

“Be still, and know that I am Elohim; I am exalted among nations, I am exalted in the earth!” – Psalm 46:10

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
