Did YOU know that YOU

Did YOU know that YOU are responsible for what YOU listen to? I'm talking about the preaching of the gospel here. God has given you the perfect resource to make sure that the preaching you hear is the truth or not. It's called the bible. Not just any bible but the Authorized Version of the Holy Bible which is the original King James Version. In fact, God EXPECTS you to verify every bit of teaching/preaching done in His name by His Word. You are responsible! The bible teaches us to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Philippians 2:12). The word of God also teaches us in Acts that the saints in Berea were more noble than those in Thessalonica because they searched the scriptures daily to see if those things were so or not (Acts 17:11). And here is the scary part; God will let you listen to lies preached in His name and believe them and be damned forever (2Thessalonians 2:10­12). I can prove it to you by the word of God. So don't think for one second that if you are knowingly listening to a preacher who is not preaching the truth and don't make a change, that God is going to accept that as an excuse on judgment day. Because He won't! On the other hand, it is not your place to get out of order if you know the preacher is not presenting the word of God rightly divided. The recommended course of action is for you to approach them one on one with total respect and point out the error. If you perceive they are set on their course to continue in the same manner, it is your responsibility to make a change; not to cause a scene or to try and cause dissimulation amongst the brethren. The command of Jesus was to let the blind lead the blind. There is a lot more false preaching going on in the land today than the truth. But if you expect to be saved and delivered, you better be seeking God earnestly to lead you to a place where THE truth is preached. Luke 12:1 "...Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees,..." Regardless of WHO wins the presidency, We who know the Lord BEST draw nigh to Him because HARD times are coming!

Repent ... Jesus is coming! God's Love is Different
