THE POPULAR DOCTRINES OF DEMONS IN THIS END-TIME. Part 1
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.” 1 Timothy 4:1.
In this end-time, many are being misled by the strange but sweet doctrines inspired by demons to make many Christians miss heaven. And if you are not vigilant, you will not only be misled but also become unconscious agent of demons preaching the doctrines of demons. Here is the forewarned message from the Bible:
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 2 Timothy 4:3,4.
The only means we can escape or overcome the traps of the doctrines of demons in this end-time is in the following verse of 2 Timothy 4:5, “But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” WATCHFULNESS IN ALL THINGS.
Here is the list of the popular doctrines of demons in this end-time:
1, FAITH WITHOUT WORK OF RIGHTOUESNESS.
The doctrines of demons emphasize more on faith, the agents of Satan who are preaching doctrines of demons are preaching, teaching and writing more about faith today, in fact some of them name their church after faith. They confess and claim everything by faith but without work of righteousness. They say they are the righteousness of God by faith; they are misleading many people with the twisted Bible message of faith.
The doctrine of demons claims salvation in Christ by faith, sanctification by faith without work of righteousness, it says you are no longer under law, so you are free by faith to live in sin but claim the righteousness of Christ by faith in your sinful life. And many are being deceived by this doctrine of faith without work of righteousness because it is sweet with no sweat. They say your work of righteousness can’t save you so you can continue in sin and claim faith to heaven.
That is the reason we see funny things happening in Christianity today, that is the reason you see many claiming faith and continue in sin because many are being deceived by this doctrines of demon from the pit of hell. But if you care for the truth,
HERE IS THE TRUTH ABOUT FAITH AND WORK OF RIGHTEOUSNESS:
The foundation of Christian life is faith in Christ, that to be justified on Christ’s account, not by our work. After we are saved, what next? Are we to continue in sin by faith and claiming justification and grace in Jesus Christ while we continue in sins? God forbids. What Apostle James says is that the first thing you need is faith in Jesus Christ to be justified, thereafter you need to add something to your faith, because faith alone cannot survive, saying you need to add work to your salvation. This Paul even made more clearer, he said, “Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” Philippians 2:12.
When we come to Jesus with the burdens of our sins, we are saved from sins, our justification is by faith in Christ, ” For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9.
What happened after we are saved? Should we continue in sin and keep on claiming justification by faith? No, We are saved and justified by faith, but we are not saved to continue in sin; we are saved by faith to live righteous. If anyone claims to be saved and continues in sin, then from what was he saved? Is salvation in Christ not to be free from the bondage of sin? So if we continue in sin, then we are not yet saved. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10. Paul mentioned work different times after faith of salvation. We are saved for good righteous work, not for sinful works.
SALVATION: We are saved through faith in Jesus Christ to live a faithful life, not to continue in unfaithfulness. Those who claim salvation in Christ by faith and continue in sin at the same time are living in spiritual confusion and contradiction.
You need to get the following clear:
We are saved by GRACE. “For by grace you have been saved.” Ephesians 2:8
We are saved through FAITH. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God” Ephesians 2:8
We are saved for good work, RIGHTEOUS WALKING. “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
If you know the means by which and through which you are saved, but you don’t know for what purpose you are saved, you will miss everything. That is the problem with preachers who preach once saved is always saved, who say you can continue in sin and still claim faith, and the same problem with Christians who claim they are saved while they continue in worldly lifestyles.
Beloved, do you care for genuine salvation that gives victory over sin and that will give you a definite purpose for the rest of your life? Do you want to live by faith in this year and the rest of your life till you see the Blessed Jesus? Then you need to be justified in Jesus Christ. Please click on this link, read and pray as directed
God bless you.
