Apostasy

JER 6:17 Also, I set watchmen over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will not listen.’

This ministry was founded to warn Christian believers …of false teachings and teachers… of the coming apostasy …It has been the watchman on the walls.

But what exactly does apostasy mean? Compton’s defines Apostasy thus…a-pos-ta-sy ( past se) n. , pl. -sies [[ME apostasie < LL(Ec) apostasia < Gr apo- , away + stasis , a standing: see STASIS]] an abandoning of what one has believed in, as a faith, cause, or principles [1] Paul referred to apostasy as ‘falling away’ 2THES 2:3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away (apostasy) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, Many Christians will simply not get it; so I will reiterate. ‘Apostasy’ or ‘falling away’ is the abandoning of what one has believed in ...the apostasy talked of by Holy Scripture comes out of the Physical keeping of the Mosaic laws by born again Christians. Allow me to give you some examples…for hundreds of years the Church has used Sunday to worship our Lord; great preachers have come and gone and not even given it a thought; Sunday was the day set aside to honor and worship corporately, it was never referred to as the Sabbath, and as such it has never replaced it. But now in the last days, cults are arising insisting that Saturday is the only Sabbath because the Mosaic laws demand it; and they back up their fallacies by using Jesus’ words in MT 5:19 "Whoever therefore breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. These people then go on to say that by breaking the Sabbath we Christians are breaking all of the commandments. The apostasy comes in because many Christians do not understand that Jesus not only suffered and died for our sins on Calvary’s cross, but that He fulfilled the Mosaic Commandments written in His own hand on Mount Sinai …EX 31:18 And when He had made an end of speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God. But do we recall what the LORD said to Moses before he climbed the mount to receive the Law? EX 19:23 But Moses said to the LORD, "The people cannot come up to Mount Sinai; for You warned us, saying, 'Set bounds around the mountain and consecrate it.' " When God set bounds around Mount Sinai, telling Moses no-one could enter , it was a shadow of the laws, that He was about to give Moses; that certain conditions had to be met before anyone could enter His rest, these became known as the 10 commandments. When Jesus died on Calvary the Curtain of the Holy of Holies split in two …the Law was ended…there were no more ‘bounds set around the mountain’ Paul explains it so well to those in Rome … why is it so difficult for us to understand today? ...we are no longer under the Mosaic Laws; we are under Grace through faith. ROM 13:9 For the commandments, "You shall not commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." It cannot be plainer than in Jesus’ words either Mk 12:30 'And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment. 12:31 "And the second, like it, is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." The law is now within us…God is love...we must be love, just as He is… If anyone comes to you trying to convince you that you must, as a Christian, be Torah observant …SHOW THEM THE DOOR…Torah means LAW…the next thing they will be insisting is that you use ONLY the original sacred names for God, Lord and Jesus and that you will lose your salvation unless you worship on the proper Sabbath i.e. Saturday of the Torah; and many cults even go as far as insisting upon circumcision…Please I beg of you dear reader …read what Paul said to the congregation at Galatia who had this very problem… Gal 5:1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.( The Law) 5:2 Indeed I, Paul, say to you that if you become circumcised, Christ will profit you nothing. 5:3 And I testify again to every man who becomes circumcised that he is a debtor to keep the whole law. 5:4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. 5:5 For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything, but faith working through love. These were believers who turned back to the Law and fell from grace …don’t let it be you. If it is you then repent now, you are in error…grave error. 2 John 1:10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 1:11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.
