I would like to share some insights that the Spirit of Christ Jesus has recently shared with me. My hope is that you are edified and that Jesus is glorified by this time of sharing. 1 Timothy 1:4 says that Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies which minister questions, rather than godly edifiying which is in faith: so do. Heeding the questions that are generated by a fase teacher is in total contrast, the total reverse of God’s plans to further the Gospel of Christ Jesus. The word edifying means in the Greek stewardship, administration and dispensation. In other words the teaching of false teachers SPECIFICALLY contradicts what is as follows:
A. The Stewardship of God. 1 Corinthians 4:1 reveals that those who properly manage and guard the mysteries of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus are opposed by false teachers.
B. The Administrators of God. I Corinthians 12:5 gives us the inferance that those with the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the purpose of doing ministry for the gospel of Christ Jesus are opposed by the false teacher.
C. The Ministers of the Dispensation of God. Colossians 1:25 tells us that see to the fullfillment of God’s Word are opposed by fasle teachers.
The false teachers is out to make monetary gain and prominence by disrupting the management of God’s Word, to counterfeit and make ineffective the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and to stop the actual expeience of the Word taking place. I encourage you, believer, to learn to identify by prayer, study of the Word, and dependence on the Holy Spirit what a false teacher is. What questions have you been asked lately that are causing you to doubt? Who is asking the questions? Do you come away feeling stronger and wiser after their questions or do you begin to doubt what you were sure of just yeterday? If that person has caused you to question what you knew to be God’s will already then they are false teachers. Have you acted on a supposed of presented answer and found yourself closer to the center of God’s will? Or do you find yourself doing something that is a sin? One sure fire way to recognize a false teacher is to ask yourself will the behavior be a sin? If the end of the counsel and matter is sin, then that person is a fase teacher. Stay away. God bless you.
