Colossians 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
Mark 7:13 Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
How well do you know your scriptures? How readily do you follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit?
I worry about modern Christians, because so many have been so indoctrinated by the specific denominational doctrine of their church, that they are literally afraid to listen to anything that’s different from what their own local preacher has told them.
Right now, at this pivotal point in human history, the creator is pouring out His spirit and offering important revelation to His children on earth. There is much that we need to understand for the immediate future. How many will refuse to hear it because it seems to be in conflict with what they’ve been taught?
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams
If the Lord seeks to use you to prophesy in these last days; if He shows you great and marvelous things which you knew not – will you push that amazing revelation down, stifle it, refuse to hear it or share it, for fear that someone might call it heresy? Or if He sends others out with special revelation, will you refuse to hear their voices, because they’re saying something different than what your preacher said you should believe?
The voices are out there. This is that time, and He is pouring out His spirit. I would urge all my brothers and sisters, when hearing those voices, to search your scriptures for the truth . . . and listen to the Holy Spirit rather than the advice of any man.
