Reasoning God's Word, ©2006 Bonita M Quesinberry:
How does one effectively reason God's Word without ALL of God's Word, or reason with man's use of one or two scriptures to support purported beliefs; those same one or two scriptures that, ultimately, can bring about one's own destruction? To use so few of God's Word, regarding a specific subject, is to reveal one who has been taught in and lives by man's way instead of God's; and it reveals those who seek to justify self still in sin while contrarily claiming Christ's sacrifice allows of it; and, he or she desires to be always right: as opposed to one who seeks only God's Truth by the Holy Spirit, with an understanding that man's way is totally unacceptable to God. (II Timothy 3:16-17)
Detractors commonly argue, "That isn't what my church teaches!" Hear between the lines, "I believe what my denomination teaches and never bother to look it up or study it for myself and I'm not going to, because I like what they teach." As God stated, "They who refuse the Truth, love death." In the end they perish for denying His Truth when presented to them. (II Cor 4:3-7; Gala 1:6-7; II Tim 2:15; 4:3-4; II Peter 2:1-22)
An example for today is how various denominations, Saturday or Sunday, teach the subject of divorce— One scripture to justify any reason the person may have given for having divorced his or her spouse; one scripture to justify marrying again, one or two or even three times again. To understand God's opinion of divorce, one must have ALL of His Word on the subject.
Alas, the majority of professing Christians do not want to hear His Truth and go on approving of divorce for a variety of reasons not of God as well as approving remarriage for a variety of justifications also not of God. Satan brings to his huge table what the people want to eat: he does not care that it is poison he feeds his guests, knowing they will eat it as if gourmet delicacies; little knowing they dine on Lucifer's putrid vomit.
Those who seek God's Truth via the Holy Spirit already know or, at the least, suspect they are either "lukewarm" or "cold," yet not understanding the meaning of either condition in Revelation 3:15-18's Laodicea age; having been taught in error by men who preach according to man's seminary ways. Jesus said, "Beware pastors and preachers and lawyers; for they speak not with God's mouth but teach from the lusts of their hearts."
Christ then defined "babes" as those who have not been tutored by man and revealed that only they deliver God's Truth: the ones no longer "drinking milk," rather eating solid food as "mature" in God's Word by the Holy Spirit— they "perfect praise and truth." He did not say this about a single educated religious leader. His laborers do not teach from corporate Christendom's global pulpits but only because they are not welcome there.
It is not a sin to be wrong, IF a sin is committed in ignorance; but it is a sin to be wrong if one does not seek then implement what is right by God's perfect standard. This is to say, look up all references provided in order to understand why man's seminary teachings have fatal flaws and to comprehend the true nature of God that we are to emulate.
To read the Bible is an endeavor of moving through the Word from beginning to end; to study is quite another and requires God's instructions on how and why and whom to trust as a teacher. Satan is clever, for he knows that people are to study God's word topically— by subject as it were– so, yes, he even provides Topical Bibles of his own. But, check them out: they are grossly incomplete. For instance, look up the word "sabbath" in any Topical Bible found in Bible Book Stores. In one column might be, at most, six scriptures quoted then followed by a different subject word.
Because earth's time is rapidly drawing to a close, in 2003 God provided the world's only exhaustive AKJV Topical Bible of all critical-to-salvation subjects: "Truth Gathering." To find the same topic as above, turn to c.12 "Saturday vs. Sunday." Readers will find FIFTEEN pages (size 8.5 x 11) of God's scriptures about only His and Christ's Sabbath day. The person studying now can learn God's opinion on this weighty matter. There is a chapter on "God's Law" providing over 50 pages of text, another on "Husbands, Wives, Parents" that includes all of God's Word on divorce.
Chapter 12 of "Truth Gathering" enlightens further— How many times over the years have people heard from their pulpit of choice, "Jesus gave two new commandments to replace the original Ten hung on the cross: the two royal laws of love." No! First, the Ten Precepts were not hung on the cross, only the sacrificial Ordinances. Second, Christ gave only one "new" commandment as set out in John 13:34, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another: as I have loved you, also love one another." He was instructing His followers, not the world of potential proselytes. God first spoke the two Royal Laws of love in the Old Testament. Jesus reiterated them because the Pharisees had failed to teach those two "weightier matters of God's Law." They withheld that the Statutes could not be obeyed without first loving God and mankind. But, we digress—
To reason is NOT to debate and/or argue; to reason is to provide ALL of God's relevant scriptures concerning another person's specific Bible question or belief error. Then, the one who asked, or was warned, must choose either to not read for self or look up verses provided by seeking Holy Spirit guidance and understanding during study. Praise the Lord, it is not our job to convince anyone of God's Truth: it is God's task alone, for He "chooses whom He will to follow His Son." We are sent only to deliver His Truth.
To read without requesting Holy Spirit guidance is to unwittingly invite Satan to interpret God's Word for the reader, a task in which he takes great delight: Lucifer's explanation, in the end, takes the reader down with him into a pit of fire and brimstone. As God said, "Satan slays his own." The Bible clearly reveals Beelzebub using God's Word to achieve man's destruction, as noted when Jesus was tempted by him in the wilderness for 40 days and nights. He continues to use God's Word today in a twisted manner in order to deceive and lead astray as he delivers it from man's corporate pulpits in the guise of Christian synagogues and through man's wicked inventions of media. His time is critically short: in desperation, he twists and changes God's meanings, even his own version, almost daily: as seen in TBN broadcasts by Jack Van Impe and many others that TBN airs.
Today, Satan's minions encourage people to embrace common beliefs among all religions, including pagan, instead of focusing on the differences: "because all believe in the same God and Christ, and by embracing only this then world peace will reign"— straight out of the Vatican's World Church, despite God's Word saying there will be no peace in this old world. What have sheep to do with goats? There is only One God, One Truth, and One Way: Jesus exemplified it. All else comes straight out of the pits of hell.
To say, "I disagree with you" or "that is just your opinion" after another has effectively reasoned God's Word, is not to disagree with the reasoner but to oppose the Holy Spirit; which puts the disgruntled in danger of damnation for the unforgivable sin of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit. To deny what the Spirit has given is perceived by God as calling the Spirit a liar. He cannot lie. This applies also to the word of prophecy given only to God's few prophets: deny it and you deny the Holy Spirit.
If one disagrees after ALL of God's Word is provided, it is wiser to keep one's mouth shut; for by remaining silent, perhaps God in His mercy will allow His Spirit to reveal Truth to the one who disagreed but avoided debate. Only "a fool who loves death" argues God's Word in order to justify living in sin while professing Christ: Jesus accused these of "flattering lips" then stated that He does not know them.
Please understand: to violate even one of God's Twelve Commandments is to continue in sin: be wise and consider the Fourth Statute of the Ten in Exodus 20:8-11. Far too many professing Christians are in blatant disobedience of this precept, if not one or more of the remaining nine and certainly the first three Statutes— following pagan holidays in Jesus' name. God forbids us to argue and debate His Word that has been properly reasoned. It IS a good thing for the lukewarm and cold to ask questions and for Christ's laborers to deliver only God's Word in response. Proving God's Word to an inquirer is NOT our power or job: it is God's alone.
God's Truth Speakers are instructed to reason "once or twice," also considered a warning to an offender: we are to warn or have their blood on our hands. If the hearer rejects it after a second admonition, we are told, "It is because their mind is perverted. Walk away and never return to this person" (Titus 3:10-11). Once we have warned, as God said, their blood will be on their own hands if they do not repent. God goes on to say they condemn themselves by continuing in sin, despite having been warned.
There are so many sheep, in this end world of Laodicea, who are either lukewarm or cold and few laborers to reach them; thus, Truth Speakers don't have time to argue with those who will never receive it: their rejection of the second admonition is God's proof they will never accept and repent, else we would not have been instructed to move on after a second approach. To continue beyond a second warning is futile but, worse, it conveys a certain arrogant attitude of being wiser than God— "God chooses whom He will to follow His Son." He made it abundantly clear that He never will choose those with perverted minds. They were given opportunity to accept but instead chose Satan's way. Romans 9:15,18,21; Galatians 1:10-12; I Tim 6:3-5; II Tim 2:20,23-26; 3:1-5
Recently, a person who had never been baptized wanted to gain God's Truth from one of Christ's RDK sheep in order to become a true follower. A call to RDK voiced concern that, since salvation was taken off the table in 1991, the seeker might not be either lukewarm or cold thus bearing Satan's mark. YES, salvation was taken away the moment we entered the Laodicea age, only the lukewarm and cold still have an option to repent; but do not let this trouble you, for there is a way for all others out there like this person, but only one way based on God's Word and reflected in the findings below.
In learning about his/her childhood and as a young adult, it was found that he/she was raised on God's Word but for so long had not understood thus strayed from God's ways: despite actually believing in God and Christ— it is always during our youth that we stray. In this case, we can rely on God's promise to parents who "raise up your children in the ways of the Lord, that when they are old they will not depart from it." This person was "cold" but now sought Truth's heat then came to it the instant heard. AMEN! All that remains is baptism to wash away his/her "past sins." That too shall be done.
Dearest Sheep: keep your chins up, your eyes sharp and ears open, your back straight, speak and do only God's Truth, seek out the lukewarm and cold, support and encourage and aid one another as well as pray unceasing for our Lord's quick return. No matter whatsoever situation you might find yourself, at all times be as Jesus was: FEARLESS IN TRIALS, PERSECUTIONS AND/OR DEATH. Either or both confirm to whom you belong, so rejoice in your tribulations and thorny afflictions!
Much love in Christ,
