On Anonimity

While the intentions may be good, anonymous quotes should be taken with caution. We ought to be wise in following instruction and mindful of our direction in life. The Word of God is the authority on matters beyond our understanding.

psalm-119

While we may read and adopt certain beliefs that are good, the Word of God still has the final say on things. The Word of God lasts forever.

The apostle Paul has written so much to many churches about different warnings and instructions. They are not anonymously posted by an anonymous writer. They are not mere opinion of someone but is a teaching from the Lord Jesus himself. It’s important to know what the Bible say. In the Bible is written words from the Lord himself.

Galatians 1:1 New Living Translation
This letter is from Paul, an apostle. I was not appointed by any group of people or any human authority, but by Jesus Christ himself and by God the Father, who raised Jesus from the dead.

Galatians 1:11-12 New Living Translation
Dear brothers and sisters, I want you to understand that the gospel message I preach is not based on mere human reasoning. I received my message from no human source, and no one taught me. Instead, I received it by direct revelation from Jesus Christ.

There are various situations and similar scenarios in the churches before and even now. The same faith remains. The same faith is tested time and time again.

galatians-111-12

We are instructed to do the following, as believers in Christ:

  • Do not listen! Object and react! 2 Corinthians 11: 3-4 New Living Translation
    But I fear that somehow your pure and undivided devotion to Christ will be corrupted, just as Eve was deceived by the cunning ways of the serpent. You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.
  • Test every Spirit. 1 John 4:1 New Living Translation
    Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.
  • Be Godly! 1 Timothy 4:7-8 New Living Translation
    Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. “Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”
  • Give! Help! Care! Be generous!Romans 12:13 New Living Translation
    When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.

    Hebrews 6:10 New Living Translation
    For God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you have shown your love to him by caring for other believers, as you still do.

    Proverbs 19:17 New Living Translation
    If you help the poor, you are lending to the LORD–and he will repay you!

    2 Corinthians 9:6-7 New Living Translation
    Remember this–a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”

    Proverbs 11:25 New Living Translation
    The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

  • Warn the Lazy! Encourage! Care! Be Patient! Never get Tired of Doing Good!1 Thessalonians 5:14 New Living Translation
    Brothers and sisters, we urge you to warn those who are lazy. Encourage those who are timid. Take tender care of those who are weak. Be patient with everyone.

    2 Thessalonians 3:15 New Living Translation
    Don’t think of them as enemies, but warn them as you would a brother or sister.

    2 Thessalonians 3:13 New Living Translation
    As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.

    •  

      Galatians 6:9 New Living Translation
      So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

    • Titus 2:7 New Living Translation
      And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teachingdo_something_good_every_day
  • Be earnest and disciplined! 1 Peter 4:7 New Living Translation
    The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers.
  • Watch out your Associations…1 Corinthians 5:11 New Living Translation
    I meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with such people.
  • Change your Ways! Ephesians 4:28 New Living Translation
    If you are a thief, quit stealing. Instead, use your hands for good hard work, and then give generously to others in need.
  • Find ways! New ways! For acts of love and good works! Hebrews 10:24 New Living Translation
    Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
  • Tell them to be productive! Titus 3:14 New Living Translation
    Our people must learn to do good by meeting the urgent needs of others; then they will not be unproductive.

We are warned about these things:

  • Do not be fooled by twisted truths. Galatians 1:6-10 New Living Translation
    I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. Let God’s curse fall on anyone, including us or even an angel from heaven, who preaches a different kind of Good News than the one we preached to you. I say again what we have said before: If anyone preaches any other Good News than the one you welcomed, let that person be cursed.

    • 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 New Living Translation
      Don’t be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed–the one who brings destruction. He will exalt himself and defy everything that people call god and every object of worship. He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God.
    • 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 New Living Translation
      Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people–none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
  • Stay away from false teachers. From people who cause divisions. Romans 16:17 New Living Translation
    And now I make one more appeal, my dear brothers and sisters. Watch out for people who cause divisions and upset people’s faith by teaching things contrary to what you have been taught. Stay away from them.

    • Titus 3:10 New Living Translation
      If people are causing divisions among you, give a first and second warning. After that, have nothing more to do with them

      2 Thessalonians 3:6 New Living Translation
      And now, dear brothers and sisters, we give you this command in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ: Stay away from all believers who live idle lives and don’t follow the tradition they received from us.

    • 1 John 1:10 New Living Translation
      If anyone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite that person into your home or give any kind of encouragement.

      2 Peter 2:1 New Living Translation
      But there were also false prophets in Israel, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach destructive heresies and even deny the Master who bought them. In this way, they will bring sudden destruction on themselves.

      1 Timothy 6:3-5 New Living Translation
      Some people may contradict our teaching, but these are the wholesome teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. These teachings promote a godly life. Anyone who teaches something different is arrogant and lacks understanding. Such a person has an unhealthy desire to quibble over the meaning of words. This stirs up arguments ending in jealousy, division, slander, and evil suspicions. These people always cause trouble. Their minds are corrupt, and they have turned their backs on the truth. To them, a show of godliness is just a way to become wealthy.

  • Watch out for Deception! 2 Corinthians 11:12-15 New Living Translation                            But I will continue doing what I have always done. This will undercut those who are looking for an opportunity to boast that their work is just like ours. These people are false apostles. They are deceitful workers who disguise themselves as apostles of Christ. But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no wonder that his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. In the end they will get the punishment their wicked deeds deserve.
    • Matthew 7:15 New Living Translation
      “Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.

      Matthew 24:11 New Living Translation
      And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.

      Matthew 24:24 New Living Translation
      For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones.

    • Mark 13:21-23 New Living Translation
      “Then if anyone tells you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah,’ or ‘There he is,’ don’t believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones. Watch out! I have warned you about this ahead of time!

      1 John 2:18 New Living Translation
      Dear children, the last hour is here. You have heard that the Antichrist is coming, and already many such antichrists have appeared. From this we know that the last hour has come.

      1 John 2:22 New Living Translation
      And who is a liar? Anyone who says that Jesus is not the Christ. Anyone who denies the Father and the Son is an antichrist.

    • 1 Timothy 4:1 New Living Translation
      Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.

      Jude 1:4 New Living Translation
      I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God’s marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives. The condemnation of such people was recorded long ago, for they have denied our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

      2 Timothy 3:6 New Living Translation
      They are the kind who work their way into people’s homes and win the confidence of vulnerable women who are burdened with the guilt of sin and controlled by various desires.

  • The END is real.Revelation 21:8 New Living Translation
    “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars–their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

    Revelation 22:15 New Living Translation
    Outside the city are the dogs–the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie.

We ought to believe to be saved and have the eternal life. It’s up to you if you want to stay an unbeliever of God and our Lord Jesus!

mark-16-16

It’s not by accident that you have read this. I pray that your eyes will be open to the truth of the Word of God. They are true. They are real. They will happen.

Glory to God!
