Folks, we must understand and acknowledge that when we see Biblical doctrine being taught and it seems to be moving away from the sound teachings as found in the New Testament, we must warn the believers of a potential landmine. I have come across MODCONSPIRACY’s blog in reference to Dee and the dialogue they had. Dee’s interpretation regarding the End Times [the Book of Revelation] is not just off, but scary off. We as believers are living in unparalleled times and really close to the return of Jesus Christ.
Jesus wants all His children to know, at least the basics, concerning His second coming.
2 He replied, “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times.
Jesus said in Revelation 1:3 “Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep what is written in it, because the time is near.”
The word “blessed” has the meaning of being fortunate and happy.
The Lord will bless those who read and ask Him for the true understanding of the signs of the times that we are living in regards to the Book of Revelation.
Satan does not want you to understand the End Time events because he wants you to be unprepared and caught off guard.
Below is Dee’s comment that needs to be shown because as a community of believers in Jesus, we have to help other Christians not step into devastating landmines.
[Dee@Sealed in Christ said]
Let me be clear: I place little to no value on traditional biblical views. Rather, I place value on what the Bible alone has to say. How a person interprets the Bible (myself included) does not make it doctrine. And I will most certainly challenge anyone that refers to tradition as doctrine.
I do not, I never have, nor will I ever quote any extra-biblical resource as a matter of Truth or Doctrine. Nor did I do this in my exchange above. My point in referencing the Didache in the exchange above, was to show by their own words what the first century believers held to in terms of the timing of the rapture – which, as it turns out, is in direct opposition to what that blogger teaches.
“Let me be clear: I place little to no value on traditional biblical views.”
A traditional Biblical view is Biblical as 2 Thessalonians 2:15 says, “So then, brothers and sisters, stand firm and hold to the traditions you were taught, whether by what we said or what we wrote.”
In 1 Thessalonians 2:13, it defines the word traditions as being the same as the Word of God, read below
1 Thessalonians 2:13
“This is why we constantly thank God, because when you received the word of God that you heard from us, you welcomed it not as a human message, but as it truly is, the word of God, which also works effectively in you who believe.”
The traditions that Paul and the rest of the Apostles were verbally spreading before it was written down was the same message of that found in the Bible we have today.
Indirectly she is saying that she places no value in the Word of God. Either she is confused or cunning.
Now the next thing she says is very interesting.
“Rather, I place value on what the Bible alone has to say.”…..”I do not, I never have, nor will I ever quote any extra-biblical resource as a matter of Truth or Doctrine.”
After she said that she ended with this
“My point in referencing the Didache in the exchange above, was to show by their own words what the first century believers held to in terms of the timing of the rapture”
That is what you call a sly of the mouth.
Insight: Sly of the Mouth
When a person starts to say something truthful and finishes in contradicting that in which they started to say. It is done in a subtle way to capture the person for derailment.
She is introducing to the reader in a very subtle way the Didache which is supposedly the teachings of the 12 Apostles written by an anonymous author. She also says that that is what the early church believed in [“…their own words what the first century believers held to….”]. That is how it is done, to take a person away from Scripture and into extra-unbiblical sources.
Just because someone starts with what seems to be sound doctrine doesn’t mean they will end their teachings with sound doctrine. We must be watchful, for this is how deception works.
A true statement or teaching that is tweaked very slightly to mean something else without the reader picking up on it.
