False Apostles can’t Stand before John – the Apostle of Love

John the Apostle of love has been my favorite Apostle for many years. His poetic language and imagery, his grasp of the Love of God, and His passion for holiness are an inspiration to my walk with Christ. He leaned on the bosom of the Messiah. John supposedly was the youngest of the original 12, and he outlived everyone.

He lasted the longest so he saw the most attacks and confronted the most errors. I’m learning recently that John takes the concepts that are “hard to be understood” and simplifies them to the most common denominator, making them easy to understand and actionable.

All of the Apostles including Peter, James, Paul, and John were in complete agreement with Jesus. The mark of a false Apostle is disagreement with the originals. A lot of false Apostles can’t stand before John. He makes their lies stand out clear.

Study the books written by John the Apostle of the love of God, it will help you in your interpretation and action in the Scriptural text. Love is an action word.

The HEART DESIRE of CHRIST the SHEPHERD

It really breaks my heart to see Hebrews following Hebrew Camps, YouTube Israelites, and following after doctrines of demons instead of Awakening to Repentance and to the Messiah’s Apostolic Authority.

It also breaks my heart to see Christians following after the lies of Roman Catholicism, Political Christendom and the lawlessness, sorceries, and idolatries that come with the Babylon system.

My heart truly desires to see all BELIEVERS become One Body in Jesus Christ the Messiah.

I BELIEVE that YAHUAH will answer Yahusha’s final prayer for His first Apostles and for those that BELIEVE their words.

John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall BELIEVE ON ME THROUGH THEIR WORD;
21 That THEY ALL MAY BE ONE; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE that thou hast sent me.
22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that THEY MAY BE ONE, even as WE ARE ONE:
23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be MADE PERFECT IN ONE; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who HATH MADE BOTH ONE, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make IN HIMSELF of twain ONE NEW MAN, so making peace;
16 And that he might RECONCILE BOTH UNTO GOD IN ONE BODY by the cross, having SLAIN THE ENMITY thereby.

Debating with False Apostles

Debating with false apostles is almost a waste of time. They have dedicated their souls to satans purposes, and now their income depends on it. No amount of logic or scripture can move them. They are highly skilled at dancing around the simple truth. Jesus called them hungry wolves. When Paul discussed these wolves, he did it with tears in his eyes.

We must cry real tears and pray that Gods sheep would be set free from these wolves in sheeps clothing. We must warn the sheep that actually hear God’s voice to ignore the voice of strangers.

Rhetorical Dancers – False Apostles

True Apostles dance and rejoice before the Lord.

False Apostles dance their way out of the Conviction of the Holy Ghost.

They are the best Rhetorical Dancers you’ve ever seen. Mental Gymnastics and moves for days.

You can’t pin em down to the truth. It’s literally impossible. Michael Jackson and James Brown combined into one shining angel of light.

They got moves!

1 Corinthians 2
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

Discerning False Teachers and False Prophets, and Knowing them By their FRUITS

Discerning False Teachers and False Prophets, and Knowing them By their FRUITS

Deception is not a matter of intelligence. Deception is a matter of character, integrity and love for the truth.

According to 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, God is sending a strong delusion. Why? To manifest who is in love with truth and who isn’t. This is why you have to love the truth more than you love your life. This is not about intelligence; because a high IQ doesn’t prevent deception. This is about character, integrity, and love for the truth.

If you were living in John chapter 6 and you took out a YouTube clip of Jesus saying “eat my flesh and drink my blood…” you could call Jesus a false teacher. You could say He was teaching cannibalism.

Obviously Jesus is not a false anything. He is the truth. But sometimes Jesus had a purpose in saying things without necessarily making sure that everyone understood. Contrary to popular opinion, Jesus did not speak in parables to make things clear. Jesus spoke in obscure parables so that the hardhearted could remain hard, and the soft-hearted would ask for more. He wanted those who loved the truth to continue with Him.

Mark 4: 11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

Anyone and everyone can be a false teacher or false prophet if their words are taken out of context, even Jesus Himself.

Now the balance of that is: it’s very important to use our tongues in a way that does not cause people to stumble away from obedience (James 3). Our communication should be to encourage obedience and hunger for God. But we don’t use lies or deception, even if for the purpose of getting people to do whats right. Titus 2:7-8 instructs us to have sound, sober, and grave speech that cannot be condemned.

However, Jesus did not instruct to try to catch inarticulate people in their mistakes. Jesus did not instruct us to condemn people that are not as smart as we are. Jesus instructed us to “know them by their fruits.”

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

We don’t get to condemn people for having a different communication style than we prefer, whether it be free-flowing, or systematic and structured. Jesus said to “know them by their fruit,” so we don’t get to judge people for their preference of communication style instead of their fruit. The Holy Spirit is available to give you a gift of discerning of of spirits, but ultimately, only those who are obedient to God’s will really understand doctrine (John 7:17). But if you want to know people by fruit like Jesus instructed us, then here are some of the actual biblical evidence and fruits of error:

  • Consistent and persistent communication of error that moves people hearts away from the living God (Jeremiah 23:1-22).
  • Saying everything exactly right or even doing supernatural miracles, but moving people’s hearts away from the living God (Deuteronomy 13:1-3).
  • Physical adultery, sexual sins, fornication, and unfaithfulness to marriage covenants. (1 Timothy 3:2, 2 Peter 2:14)
  • Partnerships with the ungodly in ministry, and mixing the holy with the profane in worship (James 4:4, Revelation 2:14)
  • Clear evidence of covetousness. Not wealth from diligent work, but from greed. (Colossians 3:5, 1 Timothy 3:3)
  • Drunkenness or dependence upon addicting substances, a lack of sobriety (1 Timothy 3).
  • Ungodly children, that are not in subjection or respectful (Matthew 11:19, 1 Timothy 3:4,5).
  • Consistent and persistent apostasy, divorcing from truth, denying the Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 2:1, 1 Corinthians 12:2).
  • Persistent resisting of the Holy Spirit, holiness, and the power of the living God. Having a form of godliness but denying the supernatural power thereof (Acts 7:51, 2 Timothy 3:5)
  • Seeking glory for self, brand, ministry, or group, instead of God( John 7:18). A different agenda, to sell a product instead of freely communicate the glory of God.
  • Using doctrines of grace to strengthen subtle rebellion against the Lord instead of strengthening prayer, holiness, and obedience (Hebrews 10:29, Jude 1:4, Jeremiah 28:15-17, Hananiah = Yahweh is gracious)
  • Consistent and persistent teaching that moves people’s hearts away from prayer, holiness, or obedience. They will never articulate these things directly, but there will be a communication of fancy deep teaching or revelation that will result in this heart direction. This is a crucial point, because a prophet or teacher could say everything right, but have an overall agenda that leads people away from the heart of God. Someone else might not have the best speech, but when you get to understand their heart, they lead people into sanctification, prayer and obedient partnership with God through Jesus Christ. These people may be assisted to help them communicate their points better (Acts 18:26).

Discernment Tip! Things of the Spirit are Always in Movement, so look Directionally

Things of the Spirit are always moving, and when you become seasoned in the things of God you don’t just look at how things appear on the surface, at a static point in time. You look at the direction and how things are moving… and then you start to see the reasons and the people behind the directional shifts. Then you can know things by the spirit, not the whitewashed appearance.

True and False Apostles

A false apostle is always growing in self aggrandizement and self-promotion.

A true apostle is always growing in self abasement and self-sacrifice.

A self-serving leader always just needs more followers.

A servant leader is always trying to inspire and train more servant leaders.

Fans will Disappear, Disciples Will Appear

Jesus had so many grave, serious and life-threatening warnings… The Bible is full of harsh spiritual warnings that go right along with the blessings, comfort, and promises. I don’t know how you could actually read the bible honestly and still have a people pleasing “ministry.”

All you have to do is say exactly what Jesus said and you will have instant balance. Fans will disappear, disciples will appear.

But the problem is – fans make more money! So there will always be false apostles to come win that “market” to corrupt and fleece the flock.

Galatians 1
10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

A True Biblical Church

A true Biblical Church is immune to false apostles, false prophets, false teachers, and fake bishops…

The natural vaccines that give this immunity have been around for hundreds of years. They are called Matthew, Mark, Luke, John…. 1st & 2nd Corinthians… 1st, 2nd, 3rd John… Revelations.

These natural vaccines can only be administered by the Holy Spirit, not dead men or history books.

The apostasy in the Church is a failure in biblical literacy and the failure to construct Jesus Christ in the Church thru the Holy Spirit.

God Allows False Apostles and False Prophets to Grow – To See if You Love HIM

God Allows false apostles and false prophets to grow and flourish so that those who love Him in truth can prove their love and integrity with the decisions they make to test them and stand against them and avoid them.

Revelations 2:2
I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

2 Thessalonians 2
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

False teachers are easy to spot because they violate scripture. They are only easy to spot if you are biblically literate: having read the bible cover to cover several times while filled with the Holy Spirit in proper Christlike discipleship.

False prophets are a lot trickier because they say everything right and are great actors but they do the opposite and spread corruption and mixture and iniquity.

False apostles are the hardest to test. They say that themselves or their organization is “sent” from God, but their motive is always to eat the flock. It takes time for their corrupt fruit to show up, and they are really good at making themselves into “ministers of righteousness.”

But time always tells that they are “workers” of iniquity. Iniquity spreads as they continue to grow. Eventually iniquity turns into obvious sin, like a virus that takes time before the symptoms show up.

2 Corinthians 11:13
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

Thank GOD for True Leaders who Love the Flock more than they Love the Devil!

They feed the Flock because they Love JESUS first (John 21).
