Does Jesus Say “Listen to no Man”?
THE INCREDIBLE HERESY OF “LISTEN TO NO MAN”…
MUCH OF THIS HERESY STEMS FROM THE WRESTING OF THESE VERSES
Joh 14:24 “He who does not love Me does not keep My Words, and the Word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.
Joh 14:25 I have spoken these things to you, being present with you.
Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, THE HOLY SPIRIT whom the Father will send in My name, HE SHALL TEACH YOU ALL THINGS and bring all things to your remembrance, WHATEVER I HAVE SAID TO YOU.” (TO CONFIRM THE TEACHINGS OF MAN)
WHAT THE ABOVE VERSE IS SAYING IS THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL (CONFIRM) ALL THINGS NEEDFUL TO THEM TO UNDERSTAND IN THE APOSTOLIC OFFICE, ESPECIALLY THINGS THEY WERE NOT READY TO HEAR UNTIL JESUS ASCENDED. THIS IS THE PROPER WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, TO INTERPRET, CONFIRM, TEACH, ETC THINGS NECESSARY FOR SALVATION SO THAT THEY (AND THE GIFTED ONES TO TEACH NOW) MAY TEACH OTHERS. ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS ARE TO WITNESS CHRIST, VERY FEW ARE TO TEACH OTHERS)
WARNING CONCERNING ANTICHRISTS
1Jn 2:18 “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
1Jn 2:19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.
1Jn 2:20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.
1Jn 2:21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
1Jn 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.
1Jn 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.
1Jn 2:24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.
1Jn 2:25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
1Jn 2:26 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you.
1Jn 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man (FALSE TEACHERS LIKE THE GNOSTICS) teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” (this does not exclude our need of being taught by them who partake of the same anointing)
A Good Servant of Christ Jesus
1Ti 4:6 “If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained.
1Ti 4:7 But refuse profane and old wives’ fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.
1Ti 4:8 For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.
1Ti 4:9 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.
1Ti 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
1Ti 4:11 THESE THINGS COMMAND AND TEACH.
1Ti 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
1Ti 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, TO EXHORTATION, TO DOCTRINE”
WHO ARE CHRISTIANS COMMANDED NOT TO LISTEN TO?
READ 1ND PETER CHAPTER 2 & THE BOOK OF JUDE TO START.
Psalm 146:3 “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man (MORTAL MAN), in whom there is no help (NO SALVATION).”
Jeremiah 17:5 “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose HEART DEPARETH FROM THE LORD.
“It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in PRINCES.” (Men in high positions whether politically, financially or otherwise are generally proud, vainglorious, self-confident, and rash: it is better to trust in God than in them. )
“Cease ye from (UNGOLDY) man, whose breath is in his nostrils (WHO TRUSTS NOT IN GOD): for wherein is he to be accounted of?
Luke 16:15 “And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is HIGHLY ESTEEMED BY MEN is ABOMINATION in the sight of God.”
James 4:4 “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the FRIENDSHIP OF THE WORLD IS ENMITY WITH GOD? whosoever therefore will be A FRIEND OF THE WORLD IS THE ENEMY OF GOD .”
“EGYPT” & SODOM CLARIFICATIONRev 11:8 “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom (ROME SPIRITUALLY CALLED SODOM) and Egypt (FOR IT’S TYRANNICAL CRUELTY), where also our Lord was crucified.
Rev 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.”
Do Not Go Down to Egypt
Isa 30:1 “Woe to the REBELLIOUS CHILDREN, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but NOT OF ME; and that cover with a covering, but NOT OF MY SPIRIT, that they may ADD SIN TO SIN:
Isa 30:2 That walk to go down into Egypt, and have not asked at my mouth; to strengthen themselves in the strength of Pharaoh, and to trust in the shadow of EGYPT!
Isa 30:3 Therefore SHALL THE STRENGTH OF PHAROAH BE YOUR SHAME, and the trust in the shadow of Egypt YOUR CONFUSION.”
“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help
And rely on horses,
And trust in chariots because they are many
And in horsemen because they are very strong,
But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD!”
“Now the Egyptians are (GODLESS) MEN and not God,
And their horses are flesh and not spirit;
So the Lord will stretch out His hand,
And he who helps will stumble
And he who is helped will fall,
And all of them will come to an end together.”
Isaiah 36:6 “Lo, thou trustest in the staff of this broken reed, on EGYPT; whereon if a man lean, it will go into his hand, and pierce it: so is Pharaoh king of Egypt TO ALL THAT TRUST IN hi
“Brethren, BE FOLLOWERS TOGETHER OF ME, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for AN ENSAMPLE.”
2 Thess 3:9
“Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves AN ENSAMPLE unto you TO FOLLOW US.”
2 Pet 2:6
And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them AN ENSAMPLE unto those that after should live ungodly”
Hebrews 13:7-17 “Remember them WHICH HAVE RULE OVER YOU, who have spoken unto you the word of God: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9 BE NOT CARRIED ABOUT with divers and STRANGE DOCTRINES For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein. 10 We have an altar, whereof they have no right to eat which serve the tabernacle. 11 For the bodies of those beasts, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned without the camp. 12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. 13 Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach. 14 For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come. 15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. 16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. 17 OBEY THEM THAT HAVE RULE OVER YOU, AND SUBMIT YOURSELVES: for THEY (PASTORS/ELDERS) WATCH FOR YOUR SOULS, as THEY that MUST GIVE ACCOUNT, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”
Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”
Proverbs 27:5-6 “OPEN REBUKE is better than secret love. 6 FAITHFUL are the WOUNDS of a FRIEND; but the KISSES (WORLDLY LOVE) of an enemy are DECEITFUL.”
1 Timothy 5:20 “THEM THAT SIN REBUKE BEFORE ALL, THAT OTHERS MAY FEAR.”
2 Corinthians 5:10-11 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that EVERY ONE MAY RECEIVE THE THINGS HE HAS DONE IN HIS BODY, ACCORDING TO THAT HE HATH DONE, whether it be GOOD OR BAD. 11 Knowing therefore THE TERROR OF THE LORD, WE PERSUADE MEN; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.”
2 Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, REBUKE, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”
Titus 1:13 “This witness is true. Wherefore REBUKE THEM SHARPLY (WHY?), that they may be SOUND IN THE FAITH”
Titus 2:15 “These things speak, and exhort, and REBUKE WITH ALL AUTHORITY. Let no man despise thee.”
KING DAVID KNEW WHAT TRUE REPENTANCE AND OBEDIENCE WAS AND WELCOMES ANOTHER MAN’S SMITING
Psalm 141:5 “Let the righteous SMITE me; it shall be a KINDNESS: and let him REPROVE ME; it shall be an EXCELLENT OIL, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities.”
SMITE = H1986 hâlam [haw-lam’] A primitive root; to strike down; by implication to hammer, stamp, conquer, disband: – beat (down), break (down), overcome, smite (with the hammer).
Now, VERY FEW should be teachers (masters):
James 3:1 “My brethren, be not many MASTERS (TEACHERS), knowing that WE (TEACHERS/PASTORS/ELDERS) shall receive the greater condemnation.” (MANY DESIRE TO BE TEACHERS THAT ARE NOT QUALIFIED)
Mat 23:10 “Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.” (THIS VERSE DOES NOT CONTRADICT THE ABOVE FOR SURELY THE BIBLE CONTAINS NOT ONE LIE OR MISCONCERPTION. RABBI, FATHER AND MASTER WERE THE TITLES OF THE JEWISH LEADERS SO JESUS IS NOW FORBIDDING US TO GIVE OR RECEIVE THE TITLE OF RABBI, MASTER OR FATHER TO RECEIVE ANY SUCH REVERENCE THEROF. FURTHER, THE WORD “REVERNED” IS ALSO A SIN TO USE AS ONLY ONE IS REVERED…JESUS)!
“He (JESUS/GOD) sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.” —Psalm 111:9
Heb 13:24 “SALUT ALL THEM (TEACHERS/PASTORS/ELDERS OF THE CHURCH) THAT HAVE RULE OVER YOU, AND all the SAINTS. They of Italy salute you.”
