1 Timothy 4:1 – The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
The Spirit is the Holy Spirit,
He has clearly said that in the last days, some but we find many will abandon faith.
Many are leaving the faith. It is very important for us to protect our faith. Many have gone astray from the faith.
Demons tell they attend all the big meetings. Why so that right in the meeting, right in the Church we will be given into deception. It is very important to hold on to the faith.
Luke 18:8 – I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
God wants to see faith on the earth. Last Sunday in the evening service we learnt about the importance of Worship from Revelation 13:3-4. Satan wants Worship it goes to any extent to steal our Worship.
Satan and his followers are behind our faith.
why what does faith do to us:
* Mark 9:23 – “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
* Matthew 21:21 – Jesus replied, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done.
* John 11:40 – Then Jesus said, “Did I not tell you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
* Acts 16:31 – They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household.”
* Matthew 15:28 – Then Jesus said to her, “Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.” And her daughter was healed at that moment.
* 1 John 5:4 – “For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world- our faith.”
They are leaving faith and following the deceiving spirit and teachings of demons.
So sad, many of our Christian brothers are still like that under the deception of spirits and teachings of demons.
1 Timothy 4:2 – influenced by the hypocrisy of liars, whose consciences are seared with a hot iron.
They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.
For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.
If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed.
Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly.
We are instructed this:
Acts 15:28-29 – It seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us not to burden you with anything beyond these essential requirements: 29You must abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals,
