Substance over Semantics

I always try to focus on the substance instead of the semantics. It’s the substance that produces the fruit.

Greek Language and Transliterations of the Scriptures and of Name of Yahushuah are not the issue, its the vain philosophy and idolatry that we have to watch out for.

Millions have been saved and filled with the Holy Spirit by calling on Jesus because of their faith in what He’s done for them.

Millions have studied the scriptures for themselves without imposing vain idolatry and Greek philosophies into their interpretations.

Lets keep that fruit growing and keep our understanding of the simplicity of the kingdom growing as well.

They Neuter the Scriptures with Hermeneutics

This is why some preachers can read the bible all day, and still lie to you, and still refuse to take obedient action, and still tell you its okay to disobey God.

“Hermeneutics, the study of the principles of the interpretation of scripture, is named after the pagan Greek “god” Hermes.

Has anyone who teaches or studies this subject ever considered just ‘who’ this study is named after?

The Oxford Classical Dictionary says Hermes was known for “divination.” “[H]e leads the dead to Hades”…“he was skilled in trickery and deception…[H]e is attested as trickster and thief…but most often he uses his power in mischief, illusion, and mystery…[H]e puts on his feet sandals which erase footprints…Like a magician he knows how to put the enemy camp to sleep.” “Hermes charmed him to sleep with the sound of his flute and cut off his head.” Hermes promoted bestiality and was the messenger for the god Zeus (a type of
Satan).

Hermeneutics, as taught today in liberal Bible colleges, scarcely brings a message from the God of Christianity.

Hermes sends students on a wild goose chase to find Zeus’s interpretation of God’s message, using Greek lexicons, based generally on the writings of the pagan Greeks
(The Oxford Classical Dictionary, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1996, p. 690, s.v. Hermes;Elizabeth Hallam, Gods and Goddesses, NY: Macmillan, 1996, p. 132) ” –Shared

I dont have any problems with Greek or any other language. I do have a big problem with interpreting scripture according to pagan idolatry, trickery, and sorcery. We should interpret Scripture with a heart of obedience, simple humility, and the breath of the Holy Spirit.

Do we need to study the scriptures? Yes! Do we need to submit the scriptures to the vain philosophies, systems, and traditions of men? No!

Colossians 2:8

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.

Success vs Suffering

Success is okay… Suffering in Obedience is Better – because the Reward is Bigger.

Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

Knowledge is Easy if You Understand

When you actually understand what you are talking about, you don’t have to scorn people and call them names all the time. If you really understand it, you can explain it. Knowledge is easy.

Dont Trap Yourself with Mouth Curses

Be careful the names you call people who are obedient to God. You can do whatever you want for now… but if you really love God and keep following Him, eventually you will grow and you too will be doing exactly what He said to do. Don’t let your mouth curses trap you in disobedience, and dont blaspheme the Holy Ghost.

John 21:18 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
