    What you have written is good but incomplete. I can never come into the truth alone, for the promise that the Spirit would lead into all truth was not given to an individual but to a body united in its submission to Christ alone.Once I find myself in such a body, where all are submitted to one another and to Christ, then we can expect a fulfilment of the promise.

    • Thanks Patrick… I think? LOL

      This article wasn’t pointers on coming into “all truth,” but to avoid being deceived by the “sound-byte” kind of truth.

    I want to emphasize here my agreement on No.4, Question Your Inner Voice. I was taught to look at the Word of God above all, and that my “inner voice” would be the Holy Spirit within me guiding me by what were called “checks”and “green lights”. I do not know if there is any truth in this teaching.

    Lately I began to really question why we need all these extras (manifestations, etc) when we have the Word of God. It began to bother me how much error we could accept by following these inner voices or anything else which is basically subjective. How is this different from the Catholic teaching that the Word of God is contained in both the Bible and the oral tradition?

    Once we accept that anything beyond the Word can be the Word (or on an equal par wit it), we have opened ourselves up in a dangerous fashion to error, albeit perhaps well intended error. Danger.

    What the Word saith….

    8 But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
    9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”
    10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
    12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
    13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Rom 10:8-13)

    That’s for people who put their faith in Jesus and not themselves for salvation. The strongest faith of all. Nothing doubting.

    • For those of you who want to know what Paul really meant in this passage, study the passages that he was referring to … namely Joel 2 and Deuteronomy 30. It’s not what the dispensationalists have taught us.

    “For now, we really need to look at WHERE we are and HOW we got here from a historical perspective.

    I’ve already done this research, and it shook my faith to it’s very core.

    In fact, be warned …. do NOT do this research unless you are ready to have things shaken. Most christians will not be able to handle what they find.”

    where do I start?

    • LOL …. OK, buy “Time is the Ally of Deceit” by Richard Rives … it’s the best $20 you’ll spend in your life, book-wise. Research the Maccabbees, Alexander the Great, the Hellenists and their influence on the land of Israel.

      Also, this free study on the book of Galatians has some great historical insight into that time. [http://www.bereansonline.org/studies/Galatians.pdf]

      Also study Constantine’s changing of the gospel …. that’s a big one.

      That should get you started. Don’t hesitate to write me if you have any questions.

  5. Joel

    Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us.

    Denominations are not Biblical. If most followers of Jesus Christ just spent even a few moments reading their Bibles every day they would see this. You are either following Jesus or you are not.

    Galatians 6:12-13 As many as desire to make a good showing in the flesh, these would compel you to be circumcised, only that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. For not even those who are circumcised keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in your flesh.

    Thank you Kevin, & Praise The Lord God Almighty!!!

    i would love to read the research that ‘shook your faith to the core, to test my own….. Or maybe, you could direct where/how to start with the research, as my resources are limited, & need some guidance as to exactly what is being referred to here.

    Would also, like to read the material on the lawless one revealed………

    Thank you to all those who commented. And Kevin, i pray the Lord Yahshua will continue to open the eyes of your heart to His revelatory knowledge, wisdom & understanding., to be shared with the Body of Christ.

    May the Good Lord God Almighty abundantly bless you & your family too, with His Life!! 🙂

    The Holy Spirit will lead one into all Truth. Not one’s religion – although it can and may be of some assistance. Not one’s pastor – although they can and may be of some assistance. Not the errant translations of the bible now found in all nations on earth , although they can and may be of some assistance. , Forget not- Our Heavenly Father Yahweh can, may and will use any personality, power, material, good , evil, or nation to accomplish his purpose of establishing his Kingdom on earth— To sustain , comfort, encourage, lead, protect and strengthen his true children. Believe it or don’t, like it or not.

    Once again, thank you. I hope you carry this thought much further. I (and many others?) need it. Thank you!

  9. Marie Duncan (Elizabeth M.)

    Thank you. I think we are in the same Book, on the same page, and pretty close on the same sentence. You are one of the VERY few I read or hear. I listen to /read Andrew Strom and Dave Wilkerson, who is no longer with us. He did not call himself a prophet, but he is the only one I know who has thus far been right about every prophetic word I know of that he ever spoke. God said that this is the kind of man we need to listen to. Check out his video on my home page. Elizabeth Marie McDonald Duncan on FB. Blessings.

    • John the Baptist the 2nd

      He has spoken some prophetic words that did not come to pass. Believe it or don’t, like it or not.

    • Thanks Marie … I don’t count myself even in the same league as David Wilkerson (or Andrew, for that matter) … I just want to give what I’ve been given. What video are you referring to?

  10. Jane

    Kevin, you seem to be all over the place with this one. Could you zoom in on the point you wanted to make? Thanks

      • Jane

        Yes but that’s what a lot of these are all about. Maybe I was just wanting something different to think about and discuss.

        I’m a Berean of the 1st degree. I love the truth and defend it wherever and whenever I can. And love doing it. Very sadly, the America we live in is more and more wanting to wallow in lies. Grieving to the Holy Spirit (and me too) but prophesied so no big surprise (2 Tim 3:13). But we have hope to be happy about.

        And the wait will be worth it….

        “And it shall be said in that day,
        Lo, this is our God;
        we have waited for him, and he will save us:
        this is the Lord; we have waited for him,
        we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation.” (Isaiah 25:9)

        • This is what God has me doing at the moment. If that’s not where you’re at I respect that, but instead of trying to get me to change into what you want me to be, you should respect what God has me doing. Whether or not you want to stick around is completely up to you.

            Some times people just want to control everybody and everything. Kevin don’t let this lady bring you down

    Good article! Thought it was going to address the “just ask Jesus to come into your heart” sound-byte gospel for someone in pain. Thankfully, I was given a full-meal-deal understanding of what I was saying yes to: conviction of Sin with a capital “S”, aka rebellion against God; repentance for Sin, meaning a willful turning away from darkness and a turning toward light; belief that what Jesus did really has saved me; transferring my trust to Jesus alone as my Savior (no self works or religious activity could do it); and submission to Jesus as my Lord (which was the problem to begin with). Without this understanding, true conversion is not possible and what we are left with is white-knuckle Christianity on one extreme and “greasy grace” on the other. Am so thankful for a revelation of God’s love and grace, and to be a new creation, %100 dependent on the holy Spirit for the renewal of my mind and for my sanctification. God is good!
