"Struggling-with-SIN", Part 1

I find it rather amusing how the Lord works to allow us to learn directly from HIS WORD when He wants to expose a false teaching! I've heard many different sermons from different "bible-teachers" and I've grown to love and respect a few of them, but over the years I've as well dropped and left many of them along the way. 

The  reason I would no longer listen to a bible teacher or be a part of anything he works on is because at one point or another, God exposes the real heart and message using the Truth in God's Word.

Oftentimes, I feel my spirit immediately discerning a false teacher with the message that he preaches, but sometimes, there are some of them who are very much like their father, the devil, who are very cunning in all their ways. One would have to really sit down and STUDY THE WORD for themselves in order to TEST the spirit of these kinds of bible teachers. 

This morning, God allowed me to go over some old notes I have in my sermon notebook and somehow, He led me to my notes on a particular message I've heard sometime in July of this year. I said some "amens" back then, but God brought me to read His Word this morning to review and test that teaching against Scripture.

The Word of God commands us to do that, anyway. I cannot stress enough the importance of reading and studying Scripture personally. God can speak through the message of a sermon, no matter how deceptive it is formulated to be by the preacher, but HIS SOVEREIGN TRUTH will never change and it always prevails in His Word. And this Truth will expose every dark corner, every nook and cranny of every message a so-called "bible teacher" will have embedded in their message! God's Word will shed light to ANY subtle lies of the enemy.

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15, KJV)

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." (1 John 4:1)

The "Struggle" with Sin
The sermon notes that God made me go over again this morning was one that was based primarily on Romans 7:11-25. My notes showed that the preacher said that the apostle Paul still struggles with sin 27 years after being saved! 

The message was all about struggling with sin in these last days and living in light of the judgment to come. Now the message was opened up by a personal testimony of the preacher about how he "struggled" with some things over the years now. That he's gotten victory over some things but hasn't done so in others. All that made him conclude for himself that he is truly unworthy to do the work of the Lord, but is humbled to have been called to do it. 

My notes showed that the teacher taught primarily from Romans 7:11-25, and it shows us that as Christians it is not supposed to be a surprise for us if we "struggle with sin" ("fall into sin" is the subtle message) regularly because even the apostle Paul "struggled" with it on a daily basis. The teacher goes on to say that Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 12:9 that God's Grace is sufficient in times of weakness and that Paul's thorn in the flesh was an avenue for  God's power be manifest through our weakness.  

My notes went on to show that this teacher mentioned 1 John 1:9 as an important tool and confidence of Christians, as it reminds us that we just NEED TO CONFESS  our sins to God and know that Christ's forgiveness is available to us every time. 

The message ended with the twist on continuing to do the work of God to reach other people with the gospel message in these last days. It sounded like a legitimate message, an encouragement of Christians who consider themselves weaklings for "struggling" so much on a regular basis with sin, but must continue to fight the good fight and run the race until the end.

This teacher's message was simple: The Christian life will be a DAILY STRUGGLE with SIN, and though it's not a license to sin, we need not be discouraged because great men like the apostle Paul even "struggled" with it during his time. Suffice it to say, though, that we can always run back to Jesus to confess our sins and be forgiven because the Bible tells us that God is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. This we MUST remember that we may be encouraged to continue to do the work of the Lord by not focusing on our weaknesses, but to focus on reaching the lost in these last days.

My question is this, "Should THAT be the case for true, genuine believers and followers of the Lord Jesus Christ? Should we regularly encourage ourselves to stand up again after "struggling" with sin and run back to the throne for mercy (again)? Was this REALLY the case for the apostle Paul?" 

The Word of God in context
Over the years, the Lord has taught me to never take a verse or even a couple of them out of context. I have to go back and also read forward a few verses or even a chapter before I consider the message that pops out of a certain verse. Verses pulled out of their context do so much damage in the end.

So, let me share with you what the preacher said was Paul's heart cry on his "struggle" with sin. Romans 7:11-25 says this:

"11For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me. 12Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good. 13Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful. 14For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin. 15For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. 16If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. 17Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 18For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. 19For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. 20Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. 21I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. 22For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.24O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."  (emphasis given during the message)

Unfortunately, though, the above verses cannot be taken out of the context and used to back up what the preacher spoke of in his message. Romans 7:16-25 is just a small portion of the HUGE TRUTH about SIN. One has to read beginning in Romans 5:18 all through Romans 8:9. 

The apostle Paul started to speak about the Truth of the gospel in Romans 5 and that by one man (Adam) SIN enter into the world, and DEATH BY SIN, and that it was passed upon ALL men. 

Paul then explained that just as JUDGMENT came upon all men to condemnation because of that one offense, the FREE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS FROM GOD became available unto ALL MEN through the obedience also of one man (Jesus) for the JUSTIFICATION of us all.

Paul said that the LAW OF GOD was given (entered into the scene of the world) in order for SIN to be revealed. It established GOD's ABSOLUTES and made it clear for mankind that the SIN that was passed on to ALL OF US is, in fact, an offense against God. But, Paul added, where sin abounded, the GRACE of GOD did much more abound.

Since in the chapters before this in Romans 3:23 Paul already mentioned that ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God, we now understand that as sinners, the judgment of God for sin is poured toward us which is DEATH BY SIN. 

The apostle Paul explained it in Romans 7 that the LAW (which established that SIN is a GREAT OFFENSE against GOD) only has dominion over man for as long as he LIVES. When he dies, JUDGMENT FOR SIN has then been passed. And he that remains CONDEMNED remains DEAD for all eternity!

But the beauty of the GOSPEL TRUTH is presented by Paul in that he did mention in Romans 6 that those who DO BELIEVE in the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished and completed work of salvation are baptized into HIS DEATH. Those who do believe and trust in the Lord Jesus to save them from sin and death are BURIED WITH HIM BY BAPTISM and are RAISED UP FROM THE DEAD IN NEWNESS OF LIFE!!!

This goes with the Truth that Jesus mentioned to Nicodemus in John chapter 6 that we MUST BE BORN AGAIN. Because, our first nature is that of SIN--carnal and dead! And so we read in John 3:16 that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son and whoever believes in Him SHALL NOT PERISH but have everlasting life. 

The context of the above passage of Scripture is not that Paul was saying he is STILL in that state of  "struggling" even AFTER HE WAS BORN AGAIN! That portion of Scripture shows Paul explaining on the natures we all have which is the carnal AND THEN the spiritual. Take note of what he said as an opening to his long explanation of the law of sin and death in us. 

Before Paul started speaking and explaining the Law of sin and death in a person's life in Romans 7, he went on to say this in Romans 6:18-23:

"Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. 19I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.

20For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. 21What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. 22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. 23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
Look at verse 19 above and see that Paul said, the saints HAVE YIELDED (past) their members servants to uncleanness, but then continues to say EVEN SO NOW (at present, that they are ALREADY BORN OF GOD), they now have to yield their members servants to righteousness.

Look at Paul's use of words here... In verse 20 he said, they WERE (past) servants of sin. But when he got to verse 22, he said BUT NOW (at present, having been born of the Spirit already) they have been MADE FREE FROM SIN and BECOME (present) SERVANTS TO GOD!

Chapter 7 starts with this... "Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?" Paul is now using this to open his remarks on the Law of sin and death in chapter 7! 

Take note that he said, "I speak to THEM THAT KNOW THE LAW...". Paul spoke of the role of the Law in chapter 5 saying that the Law imputed SIN. And this is what he expounds in Chapter 7 when he spoke of what the Law of sin and death is in our beings. 

When Paul talked about doing the things he did not do, he simply was using illustrations of the fact that there is that Law of Sin and Death, and the Law of LIFE in Christ Jesus upon which every believer is MADE FREE with!

"Struggling-with-SIN", Part 2

Dead IN Sin or Dead TO Sin?
We read in the New Testament of those witnesses of the life, death and resurrection of Christ, and Paul reiterated the Truth of the gospel message in Romans 6:9 saying that knowing that Christ Jesus was raised from the dead, He will no longer die for DEATH has NO MORE DOMINION OVER HIM. Christ Jesus DIED UNTO SIN ONCE and WHEN HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD, He LIVES unto God.

Take note of what the apostle said next in Romans 6:11-18:

"Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sinbut alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

12Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13Neither yield ye your members asinstruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members asinstruments of righteousness unto God. 14For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

15What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?17But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sinbut ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. 18Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

The apostle mentioned in verse 9 and 10 that because death has NO MORE DOMINION OVER CHRIST when He rose from the dead, Paul then followed up with this admonition for those who BELIEVE in CHRIST JESUS:

  • LIKEWISE --> in other words "IN THE SAME WAY"
  • YE --> "YOU" addressed in plural form (this was a letter to the saints in Rome. Romans 1:7)
    • Take into consideration who are called the "SAINTS" by reading 1 Corinthians 1:2
  • ALSO YOURSELVES --> continuing on with whom he addressed the letter to... (born-again believers of the Lord Jesus Christ who were in Rome)
  • TO BE DEAD --> speaking about the death of our carnal beings to gain NEW LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS. (Jesus spoke of the NEED to be born again in Spirit in John 3:5-8, because the first nature we are born into is of the flesh, or carnal. Read more about being born-again here.)
  • INDEED --> means "IN FACT" or "WITHOUT A DOUBT"
  • UNTO --> archaic word for "TO"
  • SIN --> the GRAVE OFFENSE AGAINST GOD that was passed unto ALL MEN from Adam.
Paul admonishes a TRUE BELIEVER in CHRIST JESUS, one who has BEEN BORN AGAIN, to really consider, or assume the state of being DEAD TO SIN and no longer DEAD IN SIN.

The excuse to "struggle"
It is very important that we STUDY and UNDERSTAND God's TRUTH directly from HIS WORD. So many preachers today talk about this thing called "struggling with sin" and ? 

Many Christians today believe in this false belief that they are STILL defeated, frail, lacking victory AND have to REGULARLY struggle and fall into sin in their lives! Many professing Christians make this "struggle with sin" an EXCUSE to a life of carnality! Many would convince themselves that they do not have the power to OVERCOME their sinful habits because it's okay to be weak anyway, because God's Grace is sufficient in weakness! But is it really like that?!

As I've mentioned, it is VERY IMPORTANT to study the Bible in context because EVERYTHING IN GOD'S TRUTH FALLS INTO PLACE as we read and study and learn from Him directly. Why can't we excuse our REGULAR, HABITUAL SINNING with the idea of "struggling with sin?" Because the apostle Paul never spoke of sin as a REGULAR PART of his NEW LIFE IN CHRIST!

Listen to his very words in the letters he wrote to the saints...

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." (Romans 8:1)

"For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit." (Romans 8:5)

"For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God." 
(Romans 8:6-7)

"But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. " (Romans 8:9)

"And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness." (Romans 8:10)

"For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. " (Romans 8:13-14)

"Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:" (Colossians 3:5)

"And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts." (Galatians 5:24)

"Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin." (Romans 6:6)

What about Paul's "thorn in the flesh"?

"And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 8For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong." (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)

Paul spoke of a "thorn in the flesh" which he asked the Lord to remove, but thrice it was denied. Now many Christians today believe that this "thorn in the flesh" is comparable to Paul's constant "struggling with sin!" Even the so-called Bible teacher whose message I listened to mentioned that Paul's "thorn in the flesh" was something that HINDERED HIM and KEPT HIM BACK in attaining victory! 

Knowing Paul's stand against SIN and Paul's belief on a true believer's VICTORIOUS life in Christ Jesus, it just goes to show that the above kind of teaching is nothing but a happy session of twisting and misusing scripture to excuse carnality!

CONTEXT is always the key and we need to step back a little to see and understand what Paul is talking about when he spoke of his "thorn in the flesh." Take note that Paul said he was given a thorn in the flesh, which was then followed by a phrase giving light to what this "thorn" was--the messenger of Satan to buffet me! God's Word itself shows us what this thorn is, contrary to what the teacher said in his message that God didn't allow us to KNOW what this thorn was so we can "fill in the blanks" for whatever it is that we all may "struggle with!"

We ought to study Scripture ourselves and learn from GOD'S WORD DIRECTLY to TEST every spirit that puts itself up as an authority on Scripture. Read 2 Corinthians 11:16 - 12:10 and see how it shows off Paul's accounting of his measure as an apostle of Christ. He even considered his accounting a "little boasting" of himself and his accomplishments.

Through those passage in Scripture we see Paul establishing himself as one who is indeed a minister and a labourer of Christ. I remember him saying the same things in the book of Galatians when he described himself as a Pharisee among pharisees... he was all THAT, in short! So Paul was in the line of proudly presenting his credentials as an apostle of Christ.

But he concluded his accounting with 2 Corinthians 12:5-10:

"Of such an one will I glory: yet of myself I will not glory, but in mine infirmities6For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me.
7And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. 8For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. 9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong."

Paul NEVER talked about any regular STRUGGLING WITH SIN in the context! He was talking about this thorn in the flesh BEING GIVEN TO HIM BY GOD to keep him in check lest he become so proud of who he was and what he's done for Christ.

The thorn in the flesh was said to be the "messenger of Satan". Have you ever read the book of Job? You might as well know that GOD ALLOWED Satan to wreck havoc in Job's life. A messenger of Satan can may well be the fallen angels or demons or demonic spirits that are in this world. Their purpose we read in verse 7 --> Paul said they were given TO BUFFET HIM.

The word buffet means:
  • To drive or force with...
  • To hit or beat...
  • To force with difficulty...
Review Paul's account of his experiences and see that he's been through so many persecutions as an apostle of Christ. THESE were SOVEREIGNLY ALLOWED BY GOD, through that messenger of Satan, in order to KEEP PAUL's PRIDE IN CHECK!!! 

Nowhere did Paul ever talked about a CONSTANT STRUGGLE WITH SIN! How can he have one when he KNOWS he has been CRUCIFIED IN CHRIST and it is no longer him who lives BUT CHRIST LIVES IN HIM?!

A constant "struggling with sin" is the excuse of a carnal "christianized goat". Many Christians today are so lukewarm and given over to carnality that their tickling ears receive messages that "encourage them" in their frail, defeated so-called christian lives.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR CONTINUING WITH SIN. The apostle Paul shouts out this beautiful Truth in Romans 8:1 that every professing believer must come in terms with:

"There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, 
who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit."

When God's Word Ain't Enough

I've been away from my blog for quite a while now but I am compelled to write again simply because of the many things that are already rapidly enfolding before us today. I cannot continue to keep silent when the devil is working double time to deceive an entire world into perdition!

Second hand Word

In the past couple of weeks, biblical prophecies are lining up like crazy before the believer's and watchman's eyes. Everyone who looks for the return of the King of kings are excited as they are scared for the lost world. Many of God's people are now sounding the alarm (yet again) for the rest of the world to "BE READY" for the Lord's return. For billions of Catholics around the world, however, that reality of Christ's return has been turned into a fantasy. 

Just recently, Pope Benedict XVI gave a message to the rest of the Catholic world that Jesus never talked about His LITERAL return

Now, I have to point out that it has always been the call of the Magisterium that the laity (or common individuals not ordained into priesthood) do not have the capacity to understand Scripture and that they NEED their spiritual leaders--priests, bishops and the Pope--to tell them exactly what the Word of God means.

It has always been like programmed messaging where the faithful get bombarded by subtle messages that suggest the Bible to be DIFFICULT to understand. Now, many may say, "I don't believe it because the Magisterium never said anything like that!" 

Well, here's the quote from the Pope himself...

On this last Sunday of the liturgical year, Jesus’ discourse about the end times (in technical terms, his “eschatological” discourse) is proclaimed at Mass (cf. Mark 13:24-32). This discourse is also found, with some variations, in Matthew and Luke, and it is probably the most difficult text in the Gospels. - Pope Benedict XVI (Source:
The Vatican has always made it a point to keep people away from God's Word and for billions of faithful to settle only for the "SECOND-HAND WORD." It's like a mind game played over and over so as to convince you that reading and understanding God's Word is TRULY A DIFFICULT TASK. 

Indeed, many fall into this programming. I know this as true because I once believed in it as well. I once believed that I cannot really sit down and study the Bible myself because it is too confusing (I could lose my mind) and too difficult to understand. I used to believe that I really NEEDED the help of the Pope to define for me what the Word of God says. 

Unfortunately for many, that mindset only leads to trouble. It only leads to IGNORANCE of God's Truth which can be found and read FIRST-HAND in the Bible today. And unfortunately for many, ignorance to ANY law is never an EXCUSE.

God's Truth in His Word: The Plumb Line of ALL Teachings

"Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth." (John 17:17, KJV)

God's Word is TRUTH. It is forever, it is infallible, it is final, it is Truth. No wonder that we can read verses like the following which always POINTS US BACK TO GETTING INTO THE WORD OURSELVES!

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)

The apostle Paul even talked highly of the Bereans because of their ATTITUDE toward Scriptures.

"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." (Acts 17:11)

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousnessThat the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." (2 Timothy 3:16-17) 

The Truth First-hand

Although the Catholic church teaches its faithful that the Bible is difficult to read and understand, God's Word simply rises up and tells one otherwise. Although the Pope points out that the Gospels are difficult to read, the Word of God simply rises to clarify things and TELLS US THAT WE MUST INDIVIDUALLY study and search Scriptures to test the things that we are being taught.

So, what about Jesus' return? 

The Pope already suggested that God's Word is difficult to understand, but he does not end there. No. He continues on with what he does best--to twist and corrupt Scripture--as he goes on to say,

Jesus says: “The sky and the earth will pass away but my words will not pass away” (Mark 13:31). In fact, we know that in the Bible the word of God is at the origin of creation: all creatures, starting with the cosmic elements – sun, moon, sky – obey God’s Word, they exist insofar as they are “called” by it. This creative power of the divine Word (“Parola”) is concentrated in Jesus Christ, the Word (“Verbo”) made flesh, and also passes through his human words, which are the true “sky” that orients the thought and path of man on earth. For this reason Jesus does not describe the end of the world and when he uses apocalyptic images he does not conduct himself like a “visionary.” On the contrary, he wants to take away the curiosity of his disciples in every age about dates and predictions and wishes instead to give them a key to a deep, essential reading, and above all to indicate the right path to take, today and tomorrow, to enter into eternal life. (Source:
 It is interesting to note that the Pope did not believe that the passages we read in Mark 13 pertains to a time when the world will LITERALLY experience the wrath of God and second coming of the Son of God! 

One simply has to read the book of Revelation, especially chapters 19-22, to know that John's visions clearly show a LITERAL TRIBULATION PERIOD and RETURN OF JESUS from heaven! 

"11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. " 
(Revelation 19:11-13)

But not only that, but during the ascension of CHRIST into heaven, two angels TESTIFIED that He WILL BE RETURNING TO EARTH! 

"And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." (Acts 1:9-11)

When God's Word Ain't Enough

The moment you give in to the lie that God's Word isn't enough for you to learn the Truth and learn from it first-hand, then you are simply giving room for blind and deceptive spiritual leaders to lead you on to the broad way that leads to death.

Only through your personal reading and studying of God's Word will the LIES of the devil be exposed. I pray that you will SEEK GOD'S TRUTH and SEEK THE LORD while He may be found. The world is changing and changing really fast, beloved. The Lord Jesus is returning soon... LITERALLY. Will you continue to listen to deceptive lies? Or will you run to Jesus and let HIM teach you of His Ways.

"The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: 
the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple." 
(Psalm 19:7)

"Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (Psalm 119:105)
