2peter 2:2niv says,
“Many will follow their shameful ways and bring the Way of Truth into disrepute.”
This verse talks about the false teachers and preachers of the gospel, spreading false teachings and making up stories.
It’s hard to know them from the real preachers and teachers of the Word…IF you don’t know what to look for.
Did you know Jesus spoke only what the Father gave him to say…well guess what, Jesus also says: “I am in the Father and the Father is in me.”
Who is Jesus Christ? And even more important: How can I know he is real?!
John 1:1-3niv says,
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…”
Remember in the beginning there was only two! The Word and the Spirit of the Word.
The Word was alive!
Every Word of God is life. The Word of God is also known as Truth, and the Spirit of God is also known as the Spirit of Truth. Thus satan is a liar with no Truth in him!
There was no Jesus, God the Son, just the Word and the spiritual life of that Word.
God thought of and found the meaning of his spiritual life in the Word of Truth. Without which there is no life but that which is given by the life of God.
By finding the Word of Truth as the source of his Spirit of life, the LORD God became “I AM”.
Thus God became the Son. Still the Word with the Spirit of Truth giving him life; but now separated from the eternal Word of life that gave him life and a body of his own. Yet he carried over a portion of the fullness of Spirit as his own. The bible says, “I was set up from everlasting,” proverbs 8:23kjv
And having found himself born out of the Word and the Spirit, he bowed to and honored the Father from which he came. Yet he was essential to all of creation because he spoke what the Father formed in thought, into being.
This communication was possible because the Word was communicatable. And when the Father communicates the Word, not only is the understanding of Truth revealed but we also experience the Love, (Agape) of God For God is also Love.
To know this love is to know God. Of course no person can view God in the fullness of his glorious love until after the time of the final transformation, so God only allows us a measure and calls it faith.
With this measure we can experience God in the Spirit of Truth and know the Word of Truth with understanding and love, and all the fruits thereof.
But this depends on you.
To know God’s Agape love requires that you find it in the Spirit of Truth that is in/of Jesus. Jesus was the spirit of Truth in God the Father when he said “I AM.” and his life, death, and resurrection makes it possible to know him and the Father in him by his Love.
And faith? Simple, when you are able to acknowledge the Truth in/of Jesus you will be given the Spirit of Truth and with that you will be able to experience the Love that the Spirit of Truth reveals in the Word according to your measure. Then you will truly understand that faith expresses itself through Love.
The knowledge of understanding and the depth of insight found in God’s Agape Love are our witness of belief in Jesus because he taught the Way to come to him through knowing and acknowledging God’s being of love and truth.
This Way to knowing Jesus by our faithfulness of finding God’s truth and love was established from the beginning of time. And praise God that Jesus, God the Word the Son, gives us his invaluable gift of Spirit when we confess our sins and accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. With the beauty of it all being whether we are born again or not we all are born again when we walk in the Way of Truth and see the Love of Truth.
IF we walk in the Way.
Most of the preachers and teachers of today talk about love but only point to verse or describe it emotionally, and they like to tell you to believe by faith…‘just have faith in him you can’t see, because the Bible tells us to.’
Then they change to another topic or story, teaching the lies of the churches, of raptures and a triune God…how Jesus stepped out of the Father as if he had always been there as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. But then that’s robbing you of understanding and putting stumbling blocks in front of you.
Don’t you get tired of it?
You must walk in the Way of Jesus where shame and sin are removed by us as we acknowledge the truth of the motives behind our sins and the love of God is found in the truth discerned. Causing an increase of transformations of our minds and actions. Or if you are not yet born-again it will happen first then in continued growth we will increase in our transformations.
Luke 10:22niv says,
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son (Jesus) is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son AND those to whom, (Christians), the Son chooses to reveal him.”
John 17:25-26niv says,
“Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
And Galatians 5:6niv says,
“For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.”
So you see, the commonly given speech about having faith and believing simply because the bible says we need to have faith in the unseen, and it’s Jesus that is unseen, but Jesus himself tells us to believe in him because he reveals the Love of the Father to us.
The ‘Way” it’s the only teaching you should be walking in, whatever you are doing you should be doing it in the Way.
What is the Way?
“Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled (with Gods Love) to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water.” Heb. 10:19-22niv
What is this Way…what is this ‘Hidden Wisdom’, what is it that is given the many names of praise: the way of understanding, the way of holiness, the way of Righteousness, the way of love, the way of truth, and the way of repentance?
I fooled you though it has many names only one is descriptive of what we must do. It’s called the way of repentance. That is what we must do on a continuing basis. Do that right, not like the churches have taught you of turning away from sin 180 degrees…that’s old school. You need to do it according to the New Testament teachings…that’s New school!
Do it the right way and the scriptures will open up to your discernment and understanding in the Love of God; thus proving Jesus lives.
Even though you can’t see him, though sometimes he might reveal himself personally, most always it’s through the Agape Love of God.
That’s what he said. You don’t have to believe it just because the bible says it, but you can prove God’s Love and come to discern the scriptures of truth.
I hope you read the other articles here on this site, especially the teaching called “The Way and how to do it.”it’s your responsibility and you can neglect it to your shame; you might have been told that you can always accept Jesus if it ever gets that crazy, (and it will), but the truth is there will come a time when the Spirit of God will be withheld and the world will demonstrate the total destruction possible in a world without God the Father and his Spirit of Truth, also known as Jesus.
