Don’t Teach My People to Fly to Save Their Souls
Page 3

I’m amazed at how some Christians literally check their common sense at the door of their local church, and then allow some preacher to spoon feed them his rendition of ‘thus saith the LORD GOD.’ Then, to add insult to injury, the poor parishioner never goes home to study the scripture and check to prove that what they were just taught is the truth (Acts 17:11). This lazy mentality towards God’s Word is how some Christians get their minds whitewashed with lies. There is nothing wrong with studying under the tutelage of your local pastor, but to make him your sole source of understanding is insane when your eternal soul is at stake. Covering over God’s truth is what these preachers unwittingly do when they teach contrary to His Word. Then to make matters worse, they compound the sin by telling their congregation that God spoke to them. Well, let us search the scripture to see if what they claim is really true.

Ezekiel 22:28-And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken.

The word ‘untempered’ in Hebrew means, "foolish things." (Strong’s #8602)

The untempered mortar that the people of God are daubed with are the foolish teachings dreamed up by some preachers who claim to speak under divine utterance. They arrogantly make this fraudulent claim in spite of the fact that God said He did not speak to them. How can we as Christians be sure that when we listen to a voice we can know with as absolute certainty what they teach is truly from God? Well, in the book of Deuteronomy, God has given us a prophetic test that we can apply to the prophets and preachers who profess to speak by the power and authority of God.

Deuteronomy 18:21-And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?

The answer to that question is found in the scripture below.

Deuteronomy 18:22-When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously thou shalt not be afraid of him.

The word ‘presumptuously’ in Hebrew means, "arrogantly." (Strong’s #2087)

The word ‘arrogance’ defined by Webster’s Dictionary means, "pride or self-importance."
