ANOTHER COMFORTER

The word of God is a book that runs in continuity and if there is any break in its pattern and consistency, it must be from our own “private interpretation” of it, for EVERY scripture is breathed out by God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

As the Flesh of the Man, Jesus was giving his earthly farewell, He promised His disciples what they so desperately needed at the time—Another Comforter. This is obviously because He was their comforter while He was with them hence the word “Another”. There are many who misconstrue this phrase to create a false picture of how the Holy Spirit is a separate entity of itself from God, even though scripture verily says God is Spirit (John 4:24).

THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIM IN HIS DEATH

As a continuation of our previous thoughts on Coming to the Knowledge of Jesus Christ, we would consider the last part of the Knowledge of our Loving Savior that Paul, his ambassador, highlights in the scripture below:

That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;

—Philippians 3:10

As we discussed the first two parts in the previous rotulus, (The Power of His Resurrection and The Fellowship of His Sufferings)—a background worth having before reading this rotulus, we will now see what the “Knowledge of the Conformity to His Death” brings.

A STRONG DELUSION – PART 1

The word DELUSION, according to the dictionary, describes “an idiosyncratic belief or impression maintained despite being contradicted by reality or rational argument“. Another source, WebMD, says it is “an unshakable belief in something that isn’t true“. These are very relevant definitions; now consider how the bible defines strong delusion: 

….because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:2 Thessalonians 2:10-11

COMING TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF JESUS CHRIST

A man and wife relationship often begins with Courtship, which lasts for a while, after which the marriage proper follows. Altogether, these two events span many years and the two parties gradually begin to “know” each other—a  knowledge that they would never attain if they weren’t daily interacting and communing in an open-hearted fashion. The relationship with our bridegroom isn’t very different. After we may have known him in a perfect understanding of the Godhead (A perfect understanding of who He is, and what He represents to us), which is eternal life, then we begin to grow in the knowledge of Him.

JUDGE NOT…?

This phrase has fast become a cliché—even individuals who will never lift a finger to attempt to live by the holy scriptures quote this portion by default. It is often used to shut up any effort to lead from the way of destruction to Life.

Truly, scripture could be quoted to one’s damnation, particularly when it is misrepresented. The sleek serpent notoriously uses this means to arrest and seal his captives in deceits. Shocked that the devil deceives using the Holy Scriptures? Yes Sir! We find that the last age strategy of deceit as prophesied in Matthew 24:24, would be by men anointed to preach from the Holy Scriptures but a twisted and perverted version of it, and MANY, not few would be cart away through this sly stealth.

SPEAKING IN TONGUES

Just before Christ left this same world, he left his current and would-be followers a couple of promises: one of them is: “and these SIGNS shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with NEW tonguesMark 16:17. Note the words “SIGNS’’ and “NEW’’.
