    Concentrate on Jesus Christ

    Post by PetriFB on Fri May 22, 2009 1:35 am

    Mt 22:29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God

    Mt 16:6 Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees

    Mt 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

    Mt 12:34 O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.

    Mr 7:6 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me.

    Mt 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

    Mt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

    Jesus Christ spoke much from deceptions and deceivers, He even named those deceivers that all His disciples knew them. Jesus centered believer also expose deceptions and deceivers, even mention their names. Jesus Christ spoke that in the last days will raise many kinds of deceptions and false prophets, who try to deceive even the elect ones. Jesus centered believer exposes all deceptions and false prophets, and if we don't make it, we are blinded by sins, deceptions, and we fear men. Jesus centered believer is not hunter of deceptions and deceivers, but believer who glorify Jesus in his thoughts, words and deeds by the truth and the love by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus centered believer don't hunt evil deeds, but grow in the Holy Spirit according to the will of God. However, he will expose all deceptions and deceivers when he sees them. Jesus centered believer exposes deceptions, but don't live with deception centered, but as Jesus centered believer.

    In the last days, these deceptions will increase and many believers will be blinded to them, so that they don't recognize deceptions or deceivers, but hold them as their sisters and brothers in Christ. Same in the last days many wrong and false doctrines and manifestations of spirit increased in the congregation. Many blinded believers will give their support to those false doctrines and false manifestations of spirit and deny criticizing and exposing and said that concentrate on Jesus, but not to mockery of servants of God. They don't understand that Biblical discernment, testing and exposing belongs to health life of the Biblical faith. They have become drunk from the wine of wrath (evil spirits), and they cannot discern between good and evil, and for this reason they will be deceived. Real concentration on Jesus Christ exposes all lies and deceptions, because they will damage heart of the believers and in the long run lead them away from the salvation.

    Mental and carnal religious people. In the last days will increase also carnal and mental religious people, who demand concentrating on Jesus, but according to itch ears, in which cannot talk and expose deceptions, deceivers, false doctrines and false manifestations of spirits. They who are under this carnality hold themselves and deceivers as right believers and those who really love Jesus in truth as rigorous and zealous after the law. However, right Jesus centered faith is such kind of where we act in the same way as Jesus did and talk in the same way as Jesus spoke.

    Carnality doesn't discern false doctrines and false manifestations, if there looks like a bit right among the poison. For this reason also carnal believer attacks against those who love Jesus in the truth of God. Many believers in the last days accept false doctrines and ungodliness by hampering and escaping their responsibility as disciple of Jesus Christ. Disciples of Jesus Christ have responsibility to expose all sins and falsehoods and of course live in righteousness through the truth and the love of God. Carnal believer thinks that by hampering, he loves his neighbour and not judge him. Exposing of sins and falsehood is not judging, but Biblical act where we expose sins and falsehood which destroy our neighbour.

    Many believers say that we cannot judge others, and we have no right to judge anybody. Of course we have no right to judge anybody and not say anybody as Pharisee without basis. Jesus Christ exposes Pharisees and said that they deceive people to damnation with their doctrines. Every Jesus's disciple has a right to expose religious hypocrisy (Pharisaism), because it can deceive Jesus's disciple away from Jesus centered faith. In this point we must remember that question is not hunt and that first, we must take a log from our own eye than a twig from neighbour eye. Jesus Christ said that he is hypocrite who don't see a log in his eye, but sees a twig in neighbour's eye. Usually he is hypocrite who rummages twigs out of neighbour's eyes, although his own eye is full of logs.

    Why Jesus Christ exposed Pharisees and why also in congregation Pharisees should be exposed? Jesus Christ said that Pharisees honour God with the lips, but their heart is far away from Him. For this reason the Lord Jesus said that those hypocrites in vain worship God, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men. For this reason Jesus Christ exposed them, because hypocrite (deceiver) is eager to teach and deceive. The Lord Jesus Christ wants that His congregation remains holy and pure from the pollution of sins and deceptions and Jesus centered believer has a same goal as Jesus Christ has. Therefore, Jesus centered believer exposes all hypocrisies, sins, deceivers and deceptions. All exposing must do by love and truth, not hitting in the flesh, but telling the truth in love. This mean that you don't expose deceptions and deceivers raising yourself, but because they would come into repentance and that whole congregation will see discernment between sin and righteousness.

    Health and Biblical Jesus concentricity act, think, talk and live as Jesus Christ did. Give up yourself on to real Jesus centered faith. As Jesus' disciples, people of this world give not thank to us, but most important is that God pleases us, when we live according to Jesus centered faith. Let the power of the Holy Spirit grow us deeper in Jesus centered faith. Let Jesus Christ be central of our life.

    Thank you PetriFB, this is an excellent study.

    Psalms 118:26 Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.

    I use the KJV Bible, unless otherwise noted.
