The Doctrine of ChristWhat is the doctrine of Christ? It is the doctrine which Christ taught or guided the Apostles to teach. If Christ or the Apostles did not teach it then it cannot be the doctrine of Christ. John warned. The "gospel" or so called kerygma is one of the DOCTRINES of Christ: Jesus taught it and it is doctrine. You cannot disparage doctrine without disparaging the Christ whose teaching are the purpose for receiving A new spirit by request at baptism. If the doctrine of Christ is mistranslated to mean the doctrine ABOUT Christ then the false teachers are at liberty to dismiss most of the Bible and put themselves in the role of revealing NEW DOCTRINE to "better fit our changed culture." That is why the claim to PREACH only a crucified Christ and mistranslate Paul who said that they have to KNOW only a crucified suffering servant or they will make the Word of God worthless. These you have with you always. Here is the text:Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 2 Jn.1:9If we love JESUS we will keep His commandments which are laws. If we love others we will bear their burdens as we can. When we stop in the middle of the street, get out, and help the old lady carry her burden across then we have fulfilled the Law. The cop will forgive us for PARKING in the intersection.
A parallel statement is:
Bear ye one anothers burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Gal 6:2The doctrine of Christ is that which Christ taught in the same way that the law of Christ is that which Jesus commanded. Jesus and Paul insisted that "ministers" devote their lives to bearing the burdens of THE LAMBS and not making the lambs feed them.
Fulfill is to FILL UP the meaning of the Law which taught righteousness and justice. However, loving others did not forgive you for violating ANOTHER law.What possible motive would people have for utterly REPUDIATING the doctrines which Jesus TAUGHT and which He as Spirit revealed to the Apostles and who Peter said "left us an example" which means a written record which Peter wrote.?Anapleroo (g378) an-ap-lay-ro'-o; from 303 and 4137; to complete; by impl. to occupy, supply; fig. to accomplish (by coincidence or obedience): - fill up, fulfill, occupy, supply.The Law of Christ is whatever Christ commanded:Nomos (g3511) nom'-os; from a prim. nemo , (to parcel out, espec. food or grazing to animals); law (through the idea of prescriptive usage), gen. (regulation), spec. (of Moses [includ. the volume]; also of the Gospel), or fig. (a principle): - lawBecause for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me. Ph.2:30We do not live under the Law of Moses or the Mayflower Compact. However, a law is a statement of cause and effect: if thou jumpest off the building thou shalt die. Laws are to protect and not burden. So, maybe we had not invent a LIST with one step on it.
God always lays down a MARK for identifying false teachers: if they do not speak according to the Words of God it is because "there is no truth in them."
The Doctrine of Christ meant that "Jesus paid it all." He assuredly paid the "temple tax" and declared that God cannot be worshipped in houses or by hands. If that is a fact then one cannot build mega-houses with massive staff infection which deliberately strips the honest evangelist of subsistence WITHOUT preaching JUST JESUS (which they also will define--for a price)
The doctrine of Christ Paul repeated and the church practiced was there THERE IS NO LAW OF GIVING. Maybe that is why they tell people that the apostels were divided and wrote divisive epistles.
Jesus cast out the musical ministers "like dung" and repudiated the doctors of the law for "taking away the key to knowledge." The clergy "piping" hoping Jesus would sing and dance proves that the doctrine TAUGHT BY Christ repudiated the emotionally and sexually abnormal have the "talent" and propensity to live like wolves or dogs.

There are some, however, who suppose there is likewise, the subject-race of a tricky nature, artful, and assuming all shapes, turning many ways, that personates gods and dæmons and souls of the dead like actors on the stage; and that through these everything that seems to be good or bad is possible. They are led to form this judgment because these subject-spirits are not able to contribute anything really beneficial as relates to the soul, nor even to perceive such things; but on the other hand, they ill treat, deride, and often impede those who are returning to virtue.
They are likewise full of conceit, and take delight in vapors and sacrifices.
5. Because the begging priest with open mouth attempts in many ways to raise our expectations. Note 13
13. The agurtes or begging priest generally belonged to the worship of Rhea [ZOE] or Cybele, the Mother. He is frequently depicted in a most unfavorable light. Apuleius speaks of a company of these emasculate priests in the eighth book of the Metamorphoses. They are also described in the Republic of Plato:"Agurtæ and Mantics frequent the houses of the rich and persuade them that they possess a power granted by the gods to expiate,
by sacrifices and chants any unjust act that has been committed and that they induce the gods by blandishments and magic rites to help them. They collected money in this way, and they also followed the selling of nostrums and telling of fortunes."

Max Weber: Of even greater importance is charisma, which stands in absolute contrast to tradition. In its simplest form, charisma is defined by Weber as "a certain quality of an individual personality by virtue of which he is considered extraordinary and treated as endowed with supernatural, superhuman or at least specifically exceptional powers or qualities" (Weber 1978: 242)Rejecting DOCTRINE makes way for abnormal males who make way for abnormal females.
The extraordinary figures who inspire such unreasoning devotion are imagined by Weber to be, in their typical form, berserk warriors, pirates and demagogues. They reveal their capacities through a highly intensified and emotionally labile state of consciousness that excites and awes the onlookers, and jolts them from the everyday 6. The primary type, from which the others spring, is the epileptoid magician-shaman who can incorporate the Gods and display divine powers primarily through convulsions, trembling and intense effusions of excitement (Weber 1972: 327, 1978: 401) 7. Through his capacity for epileptoid states, the shaman served both as an exemplar of ecstasy and as the leader in the rituals of communal intoxication and orgy Weber took as the original sacred experience (Weber 1978: 401, 539).
The PLEASURING Paul outlawed in Romans 15 has the same meaning as HEDONE: Hedone.
The leader of the vulgar, charismatic religion as a "spiritual" army:
Dêmagôgeô , to be a leader of the people, kalôs d. Isoc.2.16 ; têi men exousiai turannôn, tais d' euergesiais dêmagôgôn Id.10.37 ; cf. dêmagôgei: stratêgei, Hsch.: usu. in bad sense, Ar.Ra.423, etc.
turanneuô: to be a turannos, an absolute sovereign or despot, and in aor. to become such, Hdt., etc.: to be a prince or princess, Eur.
The dêmagôgeô continued: 2. c. acc. pers., d. andras curry favour with, X.An.7.6.4 , cf. Arist.Pol. 1305b26, al.:--Pass., to be won over, conciliated by popular arts, J.AJ 16.2.5.

Hedone (g2237) hay-don-ay'; from handano, (to please); sensual delight; by impl. desire: - lust, pleasure
God is "father" and the Logos is "son." That repudiates the doctrine of the Mother of the Gods and the Daughter: the DOVE is a DOCTRINE those who reject DOCTRINE will never grasp.
The invisible Deity expressed Himself in many ways. For this discussion we should understand that Father, Son and Spirit are not NAMES. Classical trinitarians never saw the Godhead cut up into sections but that FULL DEITY dwelled in the man Jesus of Nazareth. The doctrine that God is ONE GOD and not three beings but as Paul explained in 1 Cor 2 a complex Being explained by we His creatures consisting of body, soul (life) and spirit.
The doctrine of sonship is that one speaks the thought of the father. The meaning of LOGOS is that the Word is the "son" of the Thought or "father." That is one of the teachings or doctrines which Jesus commanded that we teach to others: if we do not speak that which has been taught it is because, says Isaiah, there is no truth in us. Therefore, for those who think that Jesus preached 'gospel' and what Jesus TAUGHT is just up for grabs and modification to fit out changed culture are, by many passages, MARKED as false teachers. The BEST of the good news is that Jesus called us OUT from under those who "lade burdens" meanining "spiritual anxiety created by religious rituals" to come outside the gates to "learn of Me." The good news is the restoration of the REST which in many Greek passages is dedicate to the "doctrine" of "stop the speaking, stop the singing, stop the music because these are WORKS of self righteousness and imposing burdens on people Jesus says "just cool it: I have done the work."
God or Deity is Christ
Gospel is freedom and a LAW AGAINST those who "further expound" or "privately interpret" because Peter said that those who corrupt the Word are spiritual prostitutes who "sell learning at retail" and do not have the Mind of Christ to teach what Jesus taught. Rubel Shelly who has helped resurrect the difference between kerygma and didache lacking support teaches that John learned about the LOGOS from Greek philosophy. Of course, John knew that Logos translated the Hebew dabar which is the personification of God's speaking to the world. The Greek Logos was hermes and one of the "taking liberties" is to use the DOCTRINES of Mercury or Hermes and to do that you have to repudiate the doctrine or laws of Christ articulated in the now-discarded epistles.
The doctrine of Christ is the Word of God and those who scramble it or use the hatchet of hermeneutics on it must be a false teacher. The god of hermeneuts is Hermes:Hermês Hermes, the Lat. Mercurius, son of Maia and Zeus; messenger of the gods (diaktoros); giver of good luck (eriounios, akakêta ); god of all secret dealings, cunning, and stratagem (dolios); bearing a golden rod (chrusorrapis ); conductor of defunct spirits (psuchopompos, pompaios ); tutelary god of all arts, of traffic, markets, roads (agoraios, empolaios, hodios, enodios ), and of heralds. His bust, mounted on a four-cornered pillar, was used to mark boundaries. --Proverb., koinos Hermês shares in your luck! Theophr.: cf. hermaion.The doctrine of Christ and taught for us is truly a problem for those who repudiate that which Jesus TAUGHT and scream "Just Jesus." Peter warned:

2 "When we hear that they who thus misrepresent the word of God make merchandise of our souls, as the Apostle Peter says (2 Peter 2:3,) and that they make traffic of us and of our salvation, without any conscience, and that they make no scruple of plunging us into hell, and even to set aside the price which was paid for our redemption, it is certain that they ruin souls, and also mock at the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. When we hear all this, ought we not to hold such teachers in abhorrence? Besides, experience shews us that we have good reason for attending to this warning of the Apostle Paul.For to what a pitch has religion arrived! Has it not been made like a public fair? What has it become in Popery? The Sacraments are exposed to sale, and everything else belonging to our religion has a fixed price put upon it.
Not more did Judas sell the Son of God in his own person than the Pope and all that filth of his clergy have sold the graces of the Holy Spirit, and all that belonged to his office and to our salvation. When we see this, have we not good reason for being on our guard?" -- Fr. Ser.

See you forget not Bacchus, and joining all in the dances Down your broad-spaced streets, in thanks for the gifts of the season, Crown each head with a wreath, while incense reeks on the altars. For health sacrifice and pray to Zeus Most High, to Heracles, and to Apollo the Protector; for good fortune to Apollo, god of the streets, to Leto, and to Artemis; and along the streets set wine-bowls and dances, and wear garlands after the manner of your fathers in honor of all gods and all goddesses of Olympus, raising right hands and left in supplication."
The Spirit is the Mind of Christ: the Wisdom of God.Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: Proverbs 1:20
She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, Proverbs 1:21
How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Proverbs 1:22
Turn you at my reproof: behold,
- I will pour out my spirit unto you,
- I will make known my words unto you. Proverbs 1:23
And Jesus said without a doubt:
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63
"Holy" means "pure." Therefore, as Holy Spirit God is "wholly" Spirit and does not have flesh and bones. As a result, whatever God "speaks" is PURE or HOLY Spirit in nature. Jesus validated "Sonship" by speaking only what he heard from the "Father." The FATHER and SPIRIT were with or within Jesus when He spoke. The Father as "thought" and the Son as "word" and the Spirit as "breath" is a parable because FULL DEITY dwelled in Jesus Christ.
Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. Jn.16:32
Only as holy (wholly) Spirit could "Jesus of Nazareth" speak to the designated apostles. This is because as "Father, Son and Spirit" they would hear the THOUGHT in their own minds and therefore believe it. They, in turn, would speak as SONS of God:
- I have many things to say and to judge of you: but he that sent me is true; and I speak to the world those things which I have heard of him. John 8:26
- They understood not that he spake to them of the Father. John 8:27
- Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man,
- then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. John 8:28
- And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do alway those things that please him. Jn.8:29
For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. Jn. 12:49
- And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. Jn 12:50
- It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63
Those who feel that they are superior to God the Son "hath not God" and can never speak the truth.
The gift OF a holy spirit is the "clear conscience' or CO-perception which Peter said that we REQUEST at baptism (1 Peter 3:21).
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not. 1 Jn 5:18
And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. 1 Jn 5:19
And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. 1 Jn. 5:20
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. Jn 6:63
Dianoia (g1271) dee-an'-oy-ah; from 1223 and 3563; deep thought, prop. the faculty (mind or its disposition), by impl. its exercise: - imagination, mind, understanding.
THIS second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance: 2Pe.3:1
Our initial response to the gospel where BAPTISM is the first obedience to the Spirit's direct command is absolutely necessary because even to trivialize baptism is to trivialize the COUNSEL of a Holy Spirit God:
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; Proverbs 1:24But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: Proverbs 1:25
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; Proverbs 1:26
Sachaq (h7832) saw-khak'; a prim. root; to laugh (in pleasure or detraction); by impl. to play: - deride, have in derision, laugh, make merry, mock (-er), play, rejoice, (laugh to) scorn, be in (make) sport.
This was the Rising Up to Play which was musical idolatry at Mount Sinai. Triumph over was what Judas would try to do to Jesus (Psalm 41)
"The triumphal hymn of Moses had unquestionably a religious character about it; but the employment of music in religious services, though idolatrous, is more distinctly marked in the festivities which attended the erection of the golden calf." (Smith's Bible Dictionary, Music, p. 589).
Leag (h3932) law-ag'; a prim. root; to deride; by impl. (as if imitating a foreigner) to speak unintelligibly: - have in derision, laugh (to scorn), mock (on), stammering.
Those who accept Christ as their Messiah did not debate baptism:
And all the people that heard him (gladly received his Word), and the publicans, justified God, being baptized with the baptism of John. Luke 7:29
But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God for themselves, being not baptized of him. Luke 7:30
When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Proverbs 1:27
Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: Proverbs 1:28He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. John 1:10
He came unto his own, and his own received him not. John 1:11
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: John 1:12
For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: Proverbs 1:29
They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Proverbs 1:30
Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. Proverbs 1:31
For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. Proverbs 1:32
And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all. Rev 18:14
And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; Rev 18:22
But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil. Proverbs 1:33
The Doctrine of Christ in Hebrews
Many of those NOT teaching the docrine(s) of Christ will confess that JESUS came in the flesh but not that Christ (ful Deity) dwelled in Christ..
THEREFORE leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, Heb 6:1
Logos (g3056) log'-os; from 3004; something said (including the thought); by impl. a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extens. a computation; spec. (with the art. in John) the Divine Expression (i.e. Christ)
logos [legô3] (A) the word or that by which the inward thought is expressed, Lat. oratio; and, (B) the inward thought itself, Lat. ratio.A. Lat. vox, oratio, that which is said or spoken:
Because Christ was the WORD then His teachings are the DOCTRINE. As "son" Jesus never spoke that which did not originate in the THOUGHT which all trinitarians recognize as the FATHER of the WORD. Even the SPIRIT is the breath which propels the word outward.
Therefore, the doctrine of Christ is that which Jesus taught. Because we do not have a first century set of documents, commentaries, dictionaries or lexicons it denies that CHRIST CAME FULLY in the flesh and did not have the power to FURTHER EXPOUND His words so that no rhetorician, sOPHISts (serpent), singer or musician could be a professional sorcerer as the Greek and the book of Revelation fully reveals. In the Greek world they were SECTARIANS of the hypocrite clan. Because God's Word cannot tolerate private interpretation or further expounding all of this class was identified as PARASITES. For instance, all fluteISTS, harpISTS, psalmODIA and similar endings were parasites. They originated in groups such as the sacrificial singers and musicians whose service was hard bondage as they helped the priests slaughter animals typical of Jesus Christ who was also musically mocked. So, since sOPHISts cannot read the text, lets look at the context:
John defines the DOCTRINE OF CHRIST free of chargeI rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. 2 John 1:4
And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 2 John 1:5
And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. 2 John 1:6
Peter, Paul and now John warns that elders as the only pastor-teachers of the flock along with the younger deacons who could GO OUT to "teach that which has been taught." Paul told Timothy to give attendance to the public reading of the Word, to exhorting that portion read and to the DOCTRINE in that portion of the word. Preaching wit tidbits was a much later, truly ugly apostasy as proven by the Bible and all of church history. Why ABID in the doctrine which Christ taught and guided the Apostles into?
For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 2 John 1:7
Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. 2 John 1:8
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 2 John 1:9
There, he has said it as nasty as anyone could say it: Abide in what people like Peter has witnessed first hand and has recorded to be our MEMORY of the doctrines taught by Christ. Christ put a MARK on the Word and people: if they don't teach the already preached sermons and already composed songs they they DENY that Jesus was God in the flesh. Because He is God and we are not, anyone who tampers with the word or repackages and retails it is an Anti-Bible and Anti-Christ.
Doctrine OF Christ means teaching:
Didache (g1322) did-akh-ay'; from 1321; instruction (the act or the matter): - doctrine, hath been taught.
Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Mk.7:7
Music in any form as the terminal lie which replaces the example of Jesus and the direct commandment of Paul to TEACH which means PREACH "that which is written." Paul told the Romans in chapter 15 how to avoid the DELIBERATE DISCORD of Romans 15 that we should glorify God with ONE MIND and ONE VOICE using "that which is written." To pretend to have a knowledge of first century Koine and Aramaic is an UPFRONT mark that the message will be missed.
And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: Mt.7:28
What doctrine? Why the Doctrine of Christ of course.
AND he began again to teach by the sea side: and there was gathered unto him a great multitude, so that he entered into a ship, and sat in the sea; and the whole multitude was by the sea on the land. Mk 4:1
And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, Mk.4:2
Didasko (g1321) did-as'-ko; a prol. (caus.) form of a prim. verb dao, (to learn); to teach (in the same broad application): - teach
Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? Ro.2:21
A classic example of a thief would be one who performed the professional function of a preacher as his career when he did not believe what he was preaching. As soon as "retirement" came along then he could turn and rend those who supported him all of those years. Yea, this is truly freedom in Christ. Charles Spurgeon said that to do such a thing makes one "beyond the pale." That is, he could think of nothing lower than one who would ride on the backs of widows and lie to them because he was too lazy and unethical to get an honest job. Priests always robbed temples and that is why God tears them down.
Dost thou lie about "the LAW of giving" when Paul told you it wasn't a command? Then, this is a MARK that you are out to steal from the widows and hard working people who were NEVER to tithe a wage under the law of Moses. Therefore, thou are a legalists.
For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ. Ga.1:12
Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: Mk 4:3
And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. Mk 4:4
The birds were the demons: they couldn't stand the SEED which contained life being "taught as they had been taught." They thought that they could IMPROVE on the seed planted by God: sure, cut and splice the genes and come up with a BURDEN LADING beast.
For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me,
to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed. Rom 15:18
Woe unto you, lawyers for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. Luke 11:52
Both Paul and Peter, imitating Lord Jesus Christ, insisted that we TEACH THAT WHICH HAS BEEN TAUGHT. Why?
If you DON'T teach the word as EYEWITNESSES saw and heard it you, first, show contempt for Christ who IN PERSON promised to guide even Paul into all truth. If Paul can be accused of lying then Jesus Christ is accused of being a liar.
Secondly, the moment you open up the Scriptures to violate Peter's condemnation of FURTHER EXPOUNDING it you open up the gate to the SHEEPFOLD so that false profits can steal in.
The primary WORSHIP word in the epistles is to GIVE HEED to the Word of God. The goal is not to GIVE AUTHORITY for humans to decide which and when certain parts of the text goes out of STYLE. The purpose is that as the TEXTBOOK of the school of Christianity we will gradually see the LIGHT of God shining in the Face of Jesus Christ:
We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 2 Peter 1:19
Proserchomai (g4334) pros-er'-khom-ahee; from 4314 and 2064 (includ. its alt.); to approach, i.e. (lit.) come near, visit, or (fig.) worship, assent to: - (as soon as he) come (unto), come thereunto, consent, draw near, go (near, to, unto).
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 2 Peter 1:20
Epilusis (g1955) ep-il'-oo-sis; from 1956; explanation, i.e. application: - interpretation.
Epiluo (g1956) ep-ee-loo'-o; from 1909 and 3089; to solve further, i.e. (fig.) to explain, decide: - determine, expound.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:21
Which is the Spirit of Christ:
Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. 1 Peter 1:11
Only those who believe that the Holy Spirit or Mind of Christ guided the writers into ALL TRUTH are to be trusted to speak as THE ORACLES OF GOD. Otherwise, why should we believe that THEY have more power to preserve the Words of Christ than the HOLY SPIRIT?
BUT there were false prophets also among the people,even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,
even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Pet 2:1
John identifies those who deny that CHRIST was FULL DEITY dwelling in flesh as the ANTI-CHRIST. It will not do to separate the Christ or Word or Spirit or Father or Son or Arm or Branch and still be TRUSTWORTHY. That would tell Jesus Christ that He also was a liar for claiming that the Father and Son are ONE with only a singular name: Jehovah- Saves. He would be a liar for saying that HE would go away in the flesh but return as SPIRIT who came IN THE NAME OF JESUS and identified Himself ot Paul as "Jesus of Nazareth." He would be a DECEIVER for letting Thomas say "My Lord and my God."
It is impossible for this creature to believe that ANYONE who rides on the backs of Bible believers but who charges Paul with being a liar can have any higher motive than "seeing Godliness as a means of financial gain." But then Paul implied that fools love to be fooled. Both Paul and Peter contrast the WE with the MANY who see PASTOR as PLUMBER.And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2 Pet 2:2
And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:
Pernicious is APOLEIA associated with the destruction brought by Apollo or Abaddon and Apollyon who USED the Muses to both PERFORM and BE WORSHIPPED. The muses in the legends John knew first hand, were the nine PERFORMING women who were servants of Apollo. Apollon is to rise in the end time and turn loose the locusts (musical performers) who put you to sleep and with their scorpion tails give you the sting of death.
Make merchandise is like the clergy lading people with the burden of "anxiety created by religious rituals" so they can steal your property and accept the applause.
Emporeuomai (g1710) em-por-yoo'-om-ahee; from 1722 and 4198; to travel in (a country as a pedlar), i.e. (by impl.) to trade: - buy and sell, make merchandise.whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 2 Pet 2:3
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 2 Pet 2:4
And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eigth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 2 Pet 2:5
And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 2 Pet 2:6
The FALLEN ANGELS followed Satan or Lucifer who is personified as the King of Tyre identified as the HARP PLAYING PROSTITUTE who WHOLLY SEDUCED Eve. Lucifer is FEMALE also known as Sophia-ZOE. Lucifer or Zoe was known as the BEAST and Female Instructing principle. Her task is to train the effeminate to take over performance preaching and "musical worship teams."
There is no mystery if we look at this without discernment and are beguilde. However, it takes discernment to see the clear "pea under the shell" that pure Deity is One but is manifested in three primary ways.
Musterion (g3466) moos-tay'-ree-on; (to shut the mouth); a secret or "mystery" (through the idea of silence imposed by initiation into religious rites): - mystery
That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; Col 2:2
In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col 2:3
And this I say, lest any man should beguile you with enticing (pacifying) words. Col 2:4
This is Para-Logic:
Paralogizomai (g3884) par-al-og-id'-zom-ahee; from 3844 and 3049; to misreckon, i.e. delude: - beguile, deceive.
For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit, joying and beholding your order, and the stedfastness of your faith in Christ. Col 2:5
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Col 2:6Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught,
abounding therein with thanksgiving. Col 2:7
Or as Paul says later,
Let the word (Logos) of Christ (spirit Eph 5:18; John 6:63) dwell (inhabit) in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Col 3:16 [In the Greek OT all of these are forms of Biblical Psalms]
THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST is what Jesus Christ as "son" spoke as WORD what He heard from the Father or Thought dwelling within. He then breath absolute truth on the Apostles. The opinion of the Bible and all of church history is that if God in Christ and His Spirit in the Apostles didn't teach it then it IS NOT the Doctrine of Christ. Therefore,
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 2 Jn.1:9
Meno (g3306) men'-o; a prim. verb; to stay (in a given place, state, relation or expectancy): - abide, continue, dwell, endure, be present, remain, stand, tarry (for), * thine own.
If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. John 15:6
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15: 7
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. John 15:8
As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. John 15: 9
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Fathers commandments, and abide in his love. John 15: 10
These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. John 15: 11This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. John 15: 12
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15: 13
Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. John 15: 14
Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. John 15: 15
Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. John 15: 16
Paul showed how he taught what he had been taught and commanded that the Ephesians and Colossians follow the same PATTERN. This is not "singing" but the only TEACHING or PREACHING comanded for the assembl which is a form of the synagogue and not the holy whore religion of Circe:
And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. Col.1:18
And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God. Col.2:19
When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. Col.3:4
From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love. Eph 4:16
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Col.1:12
IF ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Col 3:1
Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Col 3:2
for it is light that makes everything visible. This is why it is said:
Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word (Logos) of God; Col 1:25
And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Col 3:10
"Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Eph 5:14
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body (church)
Be very careful, then, how you live--not as unwise but as wise, Eph 5:15
Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free:
Wherefore be ye not unwise, but
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles Col 1:27
but Christ is all, and in all. Col 3:11
understanding what the will of the Lord is. Eph 5:17
To present to you the word of God in its fullness (Pleroo) Col 1:25
Let the word of Christ dwell (plousios)
be filled (pleroo) with the Spirit Eph 5:18
We proclaim him,
so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ. Col 1: 28
as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,
Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace
of God in truth: Col 1:6
to God. Col 3:16
to the Lord; Eph 5:19
To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me. Col 1:29
giving thanks to God the Father through him. Col 3:17
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Eph 5:20
Those who transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, and presumeth to add their own SUPERIOR doctrine to deliberately sow discord, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. This leads back directly to the use of the youth to seduce people with music:
Jude quotes from the Book of Enoch and similar documents. Those who refused to hold the Word of God in their minds were easily seduced by Satan. He/she used mixed sex choirs, instrumental music, wine, seductive dress and asking "hath God really said" to seduce the faithful down into the dark valley of the Cainites (Cain meaning "a musical note"). This is the warning of Prophets for Profit:
Woe unto them for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. Jude 11
These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Jude 12
Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. Jude 13
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, Jude 14
To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. Jude 15
These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having mens persons in admiration because of advantage. Jude 16
But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; Jude 17How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. Jude 18
These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. Jude 19
But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Jude 20
[Praying in one's spirit made holy]
Mocking those who are faithful to Christ by being faithful to His Word which is Spirit and Life may be whistling in the cemetary. It is probably true to say that the doctrine of Christ has never been ignored to ASSIST Christ in building the church which has not brought untold misery upon the church and moved it away from being a SCHOOL OF BIBLE and of CHRIST.
