If we are to see an advancement of the gospel: then we must agree with the Bible as it is written.
Revelation chapter 22. verses 18-19. States very clearly what the penalty will be for anyone who tries to alter the bible. Especially the prophetic words in revelation.
18. I testify unto every man (or woman) that hears the words of the prophesy of this book. If any man shall add onto them. God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book.
19. And if any man ( or woman) shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life. And out of the Holy city which are written in this book.
Strong words and a very strong warning. Notice the tree of life which was in the Garden of Eden. It is there again, think about loosing all of that is promised to the people of God.
There is much preaching and teaching about today, that does not line up with the word of God. Test the spirit behind it and walk away. To agree with such teachings brings us into 18-19 of Revelation. We have far to much to lose. Listen to good teaching and take it to heart. That is where Jesus wants to be. In our hearts.
1 Samuel chapter 28. verse 7. Then said Saul to his servants, seek me a woman who has a familiar spirit. That i may go to her and inquire of her. And his servants said to him there is a woman with a familiar spirit at En-dor.
Saul should have known better, because he inquired of God and got no answer. He should have asked why, and he had been disobedient to God and so he went elsewhere. If we are not getting answers from God we should ask ourselves why. Often it is the simplest thing that stands in the way. Something from our comfort zone. I know i have been there and worn the tee shirt.
