Every Tree is Known by its Fruit—the Majority of Modern
"Christian" preachers and "theologians" are either Fruitless
or Bear Rotten, Maggoty Antichrist Fruit
[The below is an excerpt from the Closing of my upcoming Sacred Truth Expository Commentary on the Book of Jonah, c.630pp, pb., 32.00 + P&H.]
Another verse that those who refuse to accept the truth like to take out of context is—
“...Who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.” (I Timothy 4:10)
Again, one verse does not overrule the rest of Scripture. Why do “Christians” throw out 200 verses that establish truth and hold onto the 1 verse that seems to say what they want to believe? —only because they are devoid of God’s Spirit.
First of all, as we have already seen, the Greek and Hebrew words translated “all” rarely mean every last one or a “universal all”. They refer to the all of the specific group being discussed. Christ said that He came only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel and that He came to seek and to save that which is lost; and God said His people hath been a lost sheep; and that He would send out fisher’s and hunters. God said that He shut the eyes and ears of all and Christ said that the Spirit of God was upon Him to open those eyes and ears of the elect of His people. Those whom God in Christ chose before the foundation of the world—the elect of Adam to the lost sheep of the House of Israel are these “all men” of whom Christ is Saviour. Christ told the Greek woman of Syrophenicia (who had a mongrel daughter) that it was not meet to take the children’s bread and give it to the dogs (“puppies” in this verse); she recognized knowledge of the truth of what He said and then she referred to the overflow of blessing principle (not “law”); and the child received overflow (deliverance from a demon)—not salvation.
However, more important than the Greek word #3956 pas (“all”) in this verse, is the Greek word #3122 malista, very poorly rendered in this passage, “specially”. Translating it “specially” renders the sentence illogical. If Jesus is the Saviour of all persons, He cannot be “more the Saviour” of any individual person. The intention of the superlative is an emphatic declaration serving as an exclamation point! to the phrase that preceded it. The word translated as “even” here does not introduce a separate class of people, but serves to double-stamp the imporance of exactly who the “all men” are. The passage thus means something such as this: “...Who is the Saviour of all men—those very ones that believe.” “Those very ones who believe” is the modifying phrase that explains who the “all men” actually is. It shows that the “all men” is special and specific; not “general” and “universal”, which would contradict other passages of Scripture, such as: “and to give His Life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:28); and “He became the Author of Eternal Salvation unto all them that obey Him” (Hebrews 5:9). Faith does not originate in man. Faith is a gift of the Holy Spirit whereby the elect believe unto salvation.
Translating malista as “specially” gives the wrong impression, which will confuse Arminians terribly—but they like to be confused, if it allows them to maintain the delusion of their false doctrine.
“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their [own] means [power, literally, “open hand”]; and My people love to have it so” (Jeremiah 5:31).
Christ gave His Life a ransom for many. Many is not all. The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares and the Parable of the Good and Bad Fishes that follows it, both clearly show that Christ did not save all. Christ is not the Saviour of every last soul ever born. Christ did not die for every last soul ever born—His Holy Body and Blood was not wasted on those who are damned!
[This is why the Passover Lamb and the unleavened bread and wine in Communion are not to be wasted: none is to be left to rot or thrown in the garbage (and certainly not fed to dogs or cats!). All of it is to be consumed by those present or the rest consumed by fire. It is Holy, not existentially, but by reason of what it represents / symbolizes. Christ is Holy.]
Christ died for the elect. Man does not choose. God determined the elect and nonelect. He is Master of His universe. Christ in God chose the elect before the foundation of the world—and the wicked were made for the Day of Evil (Judgment) the vessels of wrath were fitted for destruction (they did not “fit” themselves or choose life or destruction). Even as cars, boats, planes, or building sets for a movie are made to be blown up, so also the wicked! God determined that there were to be villains in His Drama. What standing does the clay have to tell the Potter that He is “wrong” and “has no right”...? The wind blows where It determines—so is everyone who is born of the Spirit and the wicked are not so but are like the chaff which the wind (Holy Spirit) driveth away!
Non-existent fetuses don’t choose to be conceived; infants don’t choose to be born; sheep don’t choose their shepherd, olive trees and grape vines don’t choose their orchardist or vinedresser. All are dead in trespasses and sin. Dead men don’t resurrect themselves or choose to come back to life. God calls and they obey. This is irrefutable. Those who depart from sound doctrine do so because they were never truly called or regenerated. They were curiosity seekers, and saw something that had something that interested them—but in their own carnal unregeneracy, they thought that they could “improve” on God’s Doctrine. Such are humanists and are antichrist, not “Christians”.
Another good example:
“Unto the pure all things are pure” (Titus 1:15).
No. Abominations, sin, wickedness, evil, etc., are not pure to those who are pure. Again, the Greek word pas does not refer universally to every last thing that exists; it refers to the all of a specific, limited, sane, rational understanding. This is not talking about things that God declared evil and forbade. It is referring not to unclean animals, but to clean animals who were dedicated to idols before the meat was sold in the marketplace. Based upon the carnal, spiritually blind, mindless interpretation of mainstream Bible “experts”, according to this verse, cannibalism is permissible too!
Likewise, when Paul declared—
“All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient” (I Corinthians 6:12 and also in 10:23)
he was not referring to murder, whoredom, and homo-perversion! and therefore, he was not referring to anything else that God forbade! The long form of what he said would be, “All things [that are lawful] are lawful for me, but all things [that are lawful] are [do] not expedient [uphold / bear unity]”. This is better understood according to the “Golden Rule” or as referred to in Scripture, the “Royal Law”: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you” and “bear ye one another’s burdens and so fulfill the Law of Christ” and not being a stumbling block to weaker brethren, and “look not every man on his own things, but the things of others [redeemed kinsmen]”. This is not referring to being a busybody, but seeking the good of the true body of Christ, and not merely self. For instance, there is certainly nothing unlawful about eating a hot fudge sundae. However, eating a hot fudge sundae in front of someone who is obese and trying to diet is indeed wrong.
However, the vast majority of mainstream Bible “experts” claim that here Paul abolished the Dietary Laws—which nowhere did Paul say that he did; which Paul had no authority to do; the Dietary Laws are certainly far more than a “jot and a tittle”; and God said that if His people defile their bodies He will destroy those who do! How on earth Christians can have such polluted interpretations of God’s Word is only because their minds have been polluted by the world and never renewed by the Holy Spirit.
Similarly, they blindly and sinfully mistranslate, “the perfect Law of Liberty” (which I have discussed elsewhere) as being given license to sin! God forbid! Rather, it is, via the Power and Agency of the Holy Spirit, having the Liberty to not sin! It is in our nature to sin. Sin is wrong. Only by God’s Grace do we have the Power—the Liberation from the bondage to the Old Creature, the Sin Nature, to obey God and not sin. There is none that doeth good. Any who do good, do so only by God’s Grace. Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. However, sadly, the blind guides and dumb dogs who cannot bark, by their nature, return to eat their own vomit and wallow in their own urine and feces—and that is how they abominably interpret Scripture to suit their own sinfulness! How shameful! Their god is their belly. Their minds are polluted. Their consciences are dead toward God. Every tree is known by its fruit. Their nature is known by their actions, which are the toxic product of their corrupt doctrine:
“trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots.” (Jude 1:12)
The second-half of Titus 1:15 explains them well:
“but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.”
If they do not believe what Christ taught (not one jot or tittle shall pass from the Law or the Prophets), they do not believe in Christ; they believe in a false christ and preach a false, toxic, lethal humanistic Antichrist gospel.
They not only do not understand the Word of God and have never known sound doctrine—but they are cowards and traitors and infidels and will side with the world and not Christ. They don't offer a whimper of protest against all the evil that has filled our land like an overflowing toilet! over the past 75 years. They don't bat an eye at what Broadway or Hollywood defecate live on stage (or in "comedy houses"), or in movie theaters, or on tv, or in literature and periodicals, or in textbooks across the nation. They don't raise an eyebrow at abominations walking freely and flaunting their perversion, and rising to militancy. They don't offer a word of protest at the pollution of the Bible or what is called Christian. They don't raise a word of protest concerning rampant political corruption, the perversion of society, or the move toward totalitarian oligarchy. They blend in with the world and preach Reader's Digest "feel good" sermons replete with antichrist, Touched by an Angel theology that blasphemes God and betrays our nation into the hands of the antichrists and savages. As in all communist countries after they were taken over—they will be the first ones whom the antichrist hordes execute: for they have no respect for those who would betray their own people! Neither does God have any respect for them, and Christ will declare, "I never knew you!"
Their defective doctrine is due to a defective theology—a polluted notion of the Nature of God. Their god is not Yahweh, “I am that I am”, the Immutable, Unchangeable, Perfect, Omnipotent, Holy, Just God of the Bible, their god is Your-way, “I ain't what I wuz”—the false god they have formed in their mind after themselves, after their own fallen, faulty, feeble, foibled, vile sinful nature. They live as they do, with polluted doctrine, feebly justifying their sinfulness, because they don’t fear God. If they feared Him, they would obey Him, not think up novel excuses why they don’t need to obey Him. They don’t fear Him because they don’t believe in the true God.
“It is a fearful thing to fall into the Hands of the Living God.” (Hebrews 10:31)
Repent now while there is time.
"12Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: 13And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for He is Gracious and Merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth Him of the evil [that you deserve and have rightfully earned]. 14Who [therefore] knoweth if He will return and repent [of the Judgment that you deserve], and [instead of the Judgment] leave a blessing behind Him; [therefore, why do you not offer] even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?" (Joel 2)
