This morning I woke up with this verse popping into my head. I realized it was from the Lord and so I felt led to do a Bible study. Here is what I was shown by the Holy Spirit. May you all be blessed today by his word.
The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. Ps. 119:30
Interestingly enough the word entrance in the Hebrew is pethach which means the doorway or entrance. Jesus said in his word that HE was the Door and Gate to life.
The Door or Gate, Jesus, is the living word or the word made flesh, and gives light or illumination and understanding, discernment, teaching, to the simple or those lacking knowledge.
The logos or written word of God is a historical and spiritual document given as a testimony and guide for all who are disciples or would be disciples of Jesus Christ. Jesus, as he walked the earth, was that light or word in the flesh. In other words Jesus was a living record of that entire word God had spoken of in the law and prophets. Jesus fulfilled all the Old Testament.
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. Matthew 5:17-18:
Now under the New Testament, we have another witness to the logos or written testament. This is the person of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said that when he would go away, (ascend to heaven) he would give us another comforter, teacher, helper, guide. The rhema or living word comes from the Holy Spirit. Keep in mind though that every word spoken by God will be witnessed to in the logos.
But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. John 14:16
If you cannot find a confirmation of any extra biblical words or manifestation please reject them. Satan can do miracles and he is very clever at imitating God. He also can preach the gospel or at least his version of it. I had a dream the other night, in which many behind the pulpit speaking great oracles with zeal, were not sent by God but were in fact counterfeits. So, I do exhort you brethren to be very careful, because in these last days many will be deceived; even many who think that they are Christians. Unfortunately they are not true disciples of Jesus Christ but have another spirit and serve another Jesus. Not the logos Jesus, the word made flesh.
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. Acts 16:16-18
Things to watch for are those talking about being blessed all the time. Remember that Jesus told these kinds of people that they were only following him for the fish and loaves. They did not want to carry a cross. In the last days many of these false believers will fall away, as times economically are going to get very tough.
Also, watch for extra Biblical manifestations that are weird, many times this is flesh and foolery. In one church I found dollar store sparkles on the floor and I called them on it. Seriously, it is that bad out there. A lot of kooks are behind the pulpit these days. Jesus is NOT coming back for the church. He is coming to get his BRIDE, those who are waiting and watching for him, and are staying in his word. The church or those claiming to be Christians, and are only Jesus groupies, will be left behind to go through the tribulation. Of the 12 virgins Jesus talked about, 5 of them were left behind! Don’t forget that!
Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Matthew 25:1-13
The foolish virgins are those who have no oil in their lamps. They have no true illumination of truth. They don’t see the times that we live in but are chasing after their foolish fantasies. God’s word (JESUS) is the entrance to life. Stay in God’s word and it will illuminate truth to you. Test all things by scriptures!
If you are interested in learning more about the foolish ones on the wide road, I have written an allegory in which I reveal these many false mind sets, for those with ears to hear. It is available on Amazon, The Wide Road by Kim Balogh.
