This is important, as many are simple, head in sand Christians , or not bible Christians at all, they claim to be christian, and yet do not read the bible. Many post modern churches today, if you were to visit one and you carried your bible into the service, you would be the only one with a bible in hand. It is set up this way. If there are any bible verses, they are given on a screen with a multi media presentation, you may say, that seems harmless, IT IS NOT why? It is a work of the Devil to get people deceived to go in a so called Church service without their bible, this in turn makes the simple christian think, " If I do not take my bible to my Church why read it at home'.
You can see video after video of these post modern camp leaders say, 'The bible is an out dated book, its old and not relevant'. That is what is spreading all over the world, it may be more dangerous than any other movement in our day, it is the true apostate church, these simple ones siting in deception, will be first in line to take the mark of the beast and turn against bible believing Christians that say, Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. The post modern camp, and now the Word of Faith camp leaders are all calling for a One World Church.
This is dangerous because they take the bible, the living , breathing, revelation of God to man, and make it no better then 'Gone With The Wind'. A Bible -less so called Christian, is a deceived Christian, we use the word to discern a doctrine, a word, a sermon, we also have spiritual discernment, and you can't have spiritual discernment if you do not have bible discernment.
This is literally a life and death situation. Jesus is the ONLY way to heaven and the bible is the lords living book of truth, doctrine, comfort, hope, long-suffering, faith, trust,ect.
Worse of all, this has already caused many to be hell bound, and not saved,( born again). You must be born again, or you do not go to heaven, it's eternity of a soul at stake, next it is life and death, in matters of what is coming down right now.
Pro 22:3 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
Pro 27:12 A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.
Note: I have done a couple messages on these two verses, so I will consolidate the meaning.
A true Christian, A Prudent Christian Hides? Look first at the word Prudent in Websters 1st ed. Dictionary;
PRU'DENT, a. Cautious; circumspect; practically wise; careful of the consequences of enterprises, measures or actions; cautious not to act when the end is of doubtful utility, or probably impracticable.
The prudent man looketh well to his going. Prov 14.
A prudent man foreseeth the evil and hideth himself. Prov 22.
1. Dictated or directed by prudence; as prudent behavior.
2. Foreseeing by instinct; as the prudent crane.
3. Frugal; economical; as a prudent woman; prudent expenditure of money.
4. Wise; intelligent.
Note the definition-2. Foreseeing by instinct;
You need not a dream, vision, prophecy, a Prophet, the small inner voice, the bible, revelation-Illumination, the voice of the lord, he still speaks today, if you stop and listen.
So the prudent Christian hides himself, what, hide? Prudent in Hebrew;
saw-thar'A primitive root; to hide (by covering), literally or figuratively: - be absent, keep close, conceal, hide (self), (keep) secret, X surely.
Why do we have the same proverb in two places? It is the lord driving home this is important and dual witness by the word of the lord itself.
What happens to the simple in this verse?
How is it that the prudent, or wise, foresee, and the simple see nothing, and are blind?
The bible is missing, the fear of God is unknown. The fear of Jehovah is the very start of knowledge, without knowledge of the bible you can not have wisdom, wisdom is applying the bible truths.
Not taking a bible to Church , not reading the bible for yourself- while we can, is foolish, it will be a banned book, now we are free to read it, and most do not. This is a trick of the evil one.
Eliminate the bible, eliminate knowledge, eliminate wisdom, (applying knowledge) and thus no bible foundation, and millions are in man made doctrinal deception. It all ties together.
Spiritual death, and death by foolish, head in sand , non believers.
The bible is the HOLY word of the lord, complete in doctrine, with no new doctrine needed. The bible is the complete revelation to man from God, all else, spiritual gifts, books, sermons etc. none are inherit, but the word of the lord, the holy bible Gen. to Revelations.
Why has country after country, banned the bible? The communists banned it, burned it.
The King burned Jeremiahs prophecy-So it was written again. Paul said, while in prison, in the Prison Epistles, “ I may be bound , but the word is not bound'. It can't be, no matter how much evil tries to rid the world of true Christians and the bible, it will never happen, we read in Revelations, great persecution happens, but people are still saved( that means the Holy Spirit will be in the tribulation and not taken out as the pre tribers think, you can not get saved apart from the Holy Spirits convection, this is key to understanding that false doctrine). People will still have bibles, or portions of it, no one will ever wipe true bible believing Christianity off the map, this is the delusional dream of the NWO, but it reader will never be. In history we read, when people were martyred for faith in Jesus Christ, a thousand more took their place.
I shout from the wilderness, 'embrace your bible, get to know it, memorize portions now, stand on it, weep with it, find comfort and instruction for your soul in the holy bible'.
I shout, read, study, memorize, and bury copies literally, and bury the word in your heart, this is the word of the lord.
Oh! reader, I pray your getting this deep inside of you. I know this warning, this message, is from the lord. Heed and get ready to Bleed if needed.
Repent of sin, confess and believe in your heart, that Jesus Christ is the only way, truth and life, He alone saves, He alone is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Holy, Holy, Holy, is the lord Jehovah almighty, let it ring from your mouth and hearts today.
I end with Ps. 19
Psa 19:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Psa 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.
Psa 19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Psa 19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
Psa 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
Psa 19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
Psa 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.
Psa 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes.
Psa 19:9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
Psa 19:10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.
Psa 19:11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Psa 19:12 Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.
Psa 19:13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
Psa 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
