Acts 20: 28-31
28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
29 For know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.
31 Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.
Apparently Paul took the work of warning others so seriously that he did so continuously and with tears!
Look! Again he warns and calls them out by name! 2 Timothy 2:17-18 And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, 18 who have strayed concerning the truth…
Again! 2 Timothy 4:14-15 Alexander the coppersmith did me much harm. May the Lord repay him according to his works. 15 You also must beware of him, for he has greatly resisted our words.
Why did he name these people? To protect the church! YOU! ME! Because their lying message spreads like CANCER. And so true! Cancer kills!
1 Timothy 6:5 …men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself.
That means get away from them.
2 John 8-11 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose the things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. 9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the son.10 If anyone comes to you, and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him, 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.
I believe this is otherwise known as guilt by association.
Remember when Jesus said to remove the beam out of your own eye so that you can clearly see to remove the splinter from your brothers’? I came out of this stuff. Been there done that and God – in his great mercy and kindness delivered me from these savage wolves. Now that I see clearly I want to better expose those who have put the proverbial splinter in yours. So, as I hand you the tweezers, you must be willing to PULL!
I understand that many of those who cry out “judge not” in my direction don’t have an understanding of the word and rely on others to teach them and so usually fall into the wrong hands or – “paws”. These are the ones who have been told by the savage wolf and savage wolf supporters that God is powerful and he can do anything, and therefore anything can happen and to just go along with whatever transpires. Out goes any discernment until they are so duped they will believe and follow anything.
These who have chosen to protect and defend, obviously to their own spiritual deaths, their savage wolf teachers rather than stand for the God whom they call “Lord”, the one who died for them. These who would rather download the savage wolf’s latest teaching via webcast, podcast, cd or book to “get what they need for the moment” instead of trusting the teaching of the Holy Spirit through the bible, the method designed by God. This should not be.
To these I say to check your bible for all the warnings given by the original disciples and apostles. Check your bible to see what will happen to your salvation if you follow after false teachers. Check your bible to find out what will happen to you for all eternity in following other gods. Because these false teachers, prophets, apostles, evangelists, and revivalists lead us exactly there. They are all liars, not led of God, but led by their own fleshy desires for power, fame and cash and, just like it says above in Acts 20:30 – speaking perverse things to draw you away! And we know that all liars, idolaters, and the abominable are put in the lake of fire – Revelation 21:8 – read it!
Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19b
