Are you being led by the Spirit of Truth?
People who have gotten, or are getting any type of religious certificates or degrees for the purposes of teaching or Pastoring- from Religious Institutions who’s doctrines and over all beliefs run contrary to scripture- are just as wrong and deceived as they were, prior to getting their schooling.
All they’ll pretty much have at the end, is just a “License to Sin”, that they can now hang on their wall and boast about, …literally!
These Religious Schools and Institutions who’ve embraced The Mark of Rome and its Pope- Sunday Sacredness, are just as antithetical to The Truth, as Satan is to God.
Let The Holy Spirit- and not deceived men, be your Teacher and Guide into ALL Truth:
John 16:13 – When the Spirit of Truth comes, HE will guide you into all Truth.
You could get all of the worldly guidance from men that you could possibly handle, but if the Holy Spirit isn’t guiding you into The Truth, then you will never attain to it, nor ever grasp it.
What is the primary qualification of being led by the Spirit?
2 Thessalonians 2:9 – The man of sin will come with the power of Satan. He will use every kind of power, including miraculous and wonderful signs. But they will be lies.
2 Thessalonians 2:10 – He will use everything that God disapproves of to deceive those who are dying, those who refused to love the truth that would save them.
2 Thessalonians 2:11 – That’s why God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe a lie.
2 Thessalonians 2:12 – Then everyone who did not believe the truth, but was delighted with what God disapproves of, will be condemned.
2 Thessalonians 2:13 – We always have to thank God for you, brothers and sisters. You are loved by the Lord and we thank God that in the beginning he chose you to be saved through a life of spiritual devotion AND FAITH IN THE TRUTH.
There you have it! The guiding Spirit, IS the Spirit OF TRUTH! So in order to be led by the Spirit of Truth, you have to LOVE THE TRUTH! You have to have an unquenchable and undying desire for it, regardless of any consequences. You have to want it with all of your heart and soul.
You can’t claim to be led of the Spirit of Truth- regardless if you claim to have been born again, when the very thing that the Spirit is attempting to guide you in- THE TRUTH, is shunned, loathed, and consistently rejected by you.
Your beliefs are the evidence of whether or not, you are being led of the Spirit of Truth. Either they match or adhere to what the Bible teaches- or they don’t.
When you lucidly choose to embrace your own personal and private beliefs over the Bible’s explicit teachings, you aren’t loving God’s truths, or are being led of the Spirit- you are loving yourself and protecting your own social and public reputation from having to admit that you’ve been wrong all along.
And that right there, is the Sin of Pride in all its splendid glory.
At the end, what anyone should want, is to be taught by someone who is being led by the Spirit of Truth- and not by one who is drinking from the Cup of God’s Delusion for refusing to Love the Truth… who, then therefore, is being led by the Spirit of Deceit and Lawlessness.
