By seeking GOD in HIS WORD he has truly opened my eyes to see how men abuse the WORD OF GOD. HE is calling everyone to seek HIM for the truth. Man has defiled the WORD OF GOD and this is why HE has restored it. JESUS dying on the cross and being raised three days later by the POWER OF GOD was for us to seek HIM.
I can see men using the WORD OF GOD for their own gain, whether it be for money, material items, and/or building their kingdom.
I can see how much of an impact men teaching the WORD OF GOD had/has on our history. Two of histories most known events that stands out to me are slavery and Hitler in WW2. During the time of slaves, people kidnapped their own people and sold them for gain. And once brought to America men purchased them. The men that owned the slaves would teach them that GOD meant for people to be slaves. If these men were spiritually correct they would have known that slavery in the Bible is a picture of us being a slave to death. Then there’s Hitler who used the WORD OF GOD by trying to kill all the Jews, because this is how he perceived what GOD was saying. And if he was spiritually correct he would have seen that all Jews are not the only ones from Israel. Jews in the bible make up the ones who believe in THE WORD OF GOD. So in terms this makes me a Jew.
I can see how men using the WORD OF GOD created division and discrimination in the world. By men using the WORD OF GOD and teaching it in the physical and not in the spiritual sense makes some people feel like they are not saved. Which causes judgement, hate or/and people walking away from GOD. GOD’s WORD is spiritual, this is why JESUS is the only teacher. JESUS said the new commandments are love your GOD and love your brother. The ten commandments also were spiritual. Two of the ten commandments were, Do not commit adultery and do not commit murder. King David took Bathsheba who is married to Uriah, lies with her and then sends Uriah to a battle to get killed. If you look physically yes you can say King David broke two of the commandments. But GOD’s meaning was Do not commit adultery on HIM(do not serve false gods). Do not commit murder, meaning do not murder someone spiritually. The Bible says, the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart. HE is talking about King David. King David sought GOD with his whole heart. This is what GOD is calling everyone to do. King David wrote most of Psalms. The most important thing is walking in the spirit.
I can also see how the men using the WORD OF GOD made/make people feel like they need someone to teach them. In Catholicism, the priest taught/teach that they were/are the only ones that is holy enough to read and understand the bible. This thinking is from the Levitical law. Part of the Levitical law was that the chief priest had to go before GOD for everyone. Catholicism is the main tree which all the other denominations branched off from.
I hope you can see the structure of the church has not changed much. You still have people thinking you need a man to bring GOD’s WORD to the congregation. This structure is the picture of the law. JESUS came to put away the law. Turn to the WORD OF GOD and LIVE.
My main reason for this website is so people will start SEEKING GOD and not man.
For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord God: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.
For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
