The Doctrine of Devils
False doctrines about Christ are very harmful to all mankind. Satan has churches on earth masquerading as the church of God and their leaders are devils that teach a doctrine of deception which leads to destruction for it is written,” 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” Revelation 3:9
The truth mingled with a lie is no longer the truth but as a whole it becomes a lie for it is written,” 6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?” 1st Corinthians 5:6
Truth plus a lie equals confusion which leads to destruction.
Many different things are taught today by main stream religion. We have programs that teach a doctrine that causes people to stay in bondage to have them dependent upon man and not upon God. They teach people to pledge their loyalty to a man or to an organization rather than God.
The people are promised help to overcome their problems but find themselves trapped, reliant upon that religion to help them function from day to day. Daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly they have become slaves once again.
This is not the freedom in which Jesus spoke of when He said, “36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” John 8:36
We are to rely on God daily and Him only shall we serve.
They are taught a doctrine which tells them they are to refer to themselves as drug attics, they are alcoholics, and if they don’t stay close to the religion they will fall back into the use of these substances.
The Bible teaches true freedom for it is written,” 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.” 2nd Corinthians 5:17-18
They cause these poor souls to buy into a belief system that denies the power of Jesus which says,” 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
The question they should ask these men that teach the doctrines of the devil is,” If we have overcome the world should not we have power over drugs and alcohol also without relying on man?”
Instead the poor souls rejoice when they are back in the program, they believe that this form of bondage is of God, when the whole time Satan has them in his grip for it is written,” 19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. 20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.” 2nd Peter 2:19-20.
If an attic or alcoholic moves from the dependency of drugs or alcohol to the dependency of a religious organization what did they accomplished?
Some might say in their opinion that they are better off than they were and that would be true to some degree if your concept is the lesser of two evils.
These organizations display pictures of the deceived being baptized over and over again. Baptized each time they return to the program, with bright smiles on their faces they believe that they are being helped, when according to the truth it is only required once to be baptized in the name of Jesus and although the person feels happy they are being deceived.
They are taught a doctrine which leaves them powerless if away from the religion. They leave the program only to fail in the real world due to the false doctrine they are taught.
These religious programs are paid very well and are happy to have them return over and over again. They will run them through the program again and handed them a Piece of paper for completing the program each time they do it, never getting free only becoming more and more dependent on them.
Their doctrine teaches them to give free labor to the church and they will be rewarded with a low wage paying job through their organization.
The only thing we are to be that dependent on is Jesus! Not a Pastor, not a religious organization, not other people, not money, not a job, but Jesus Christ for it is written,” 8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.” Psalm 118:8
The doctrine of devils is best defined in the words of Jesus for it is written,” 8 This people draw nigh unto me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.” Matthew 15:8-9
There is one true doctrine and that doctrine will set us all free from bondage, not cause us to transfer from one form of bondage to a new form of bondage for it is written,” 3 charge some that they teach no other doctrine, 4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. 5 Now the end of the commandment is charity (love) out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: 6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling.” 1st Timothy 1:3-6
The people who teach these doctrines of devils are of Satan but appear to be of Jesus for it is written,“15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Matthew 7:15
And again,” 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2nd Corinthians 11:13-15
Some would say what is the harm in what they are doing? Some would say that the people are better off than they were. But the harm is this; the doctrine of devils creates devils for it is written,” 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15
The harm is this; these liars put on a good show, they promise people heaven and they are not even entering in for it is written,” 13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.” Matthew 23:13
Here is the good news!
None of God’s true people will continue to believe these doctrines, none of them will remain in these churches, only those whose names are not written in the book of Life for it is written,” 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (Satan), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Revelation 13:8
The good news is that we the true followers of Jesus will only follow the true doctrine of Christ and only those whose names are not written will follow the devil’s doctrine for it is written,” 4 And when he (Jesus) puts forth his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5 And a stranger (the Devil) will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.” John 10:4-5
The good news is that Jesus for told us of all these things to come and that the teachers of the doctrine of devils will pay for their lies for it is written,” 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Matthew 7:22-23
My heart goes out to the deceived and I pray that you are not among the victims of the Doctrine of devils.
Until the next time I love you,
