True and False Gospels!
What has been produced and what should be produced by preaching the true gospel of the Kingdom differs greatly from what is being produced. Recently a world renowned preacher said, “Something is happening to the earth. What is it? And how will the body of Christ respond to it?” My answer is they will not respond to it because they do not know what the word of God says. They have accepted false gospels and the real true gospel has vanished from sight. If you ask them what shall be, they will not know. God said, “My people (not any old people but my people) perish for a lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6) False gospels are a waste of human time and suppress the true gospel. Paul lets us all know that when we preach a false gospel we are Anathema Maranatha. Anathema means ban, excommunicate or both and cursed. Maranatha means Our Lord has come or come quickly Lord Jesus. This means we have been cursed in not causing Jesus to come and cursed in not aiding and facilitating His coming. “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (1Peter 4:17)

Believe it or not we are supposed to be hastening (KJV hasting) the Lord’s coming. Hasting means to speed, to urge diligently, to await eagerly. (2Peter 3:12) The true gospel is suppressed by all the false gospels. They exclude the animals. They dumb down the Christians keeping them unprepared! And it allows hellish existence for animals and environmental destruction to continue. True Gospel obeyed, saves to the uttermost, fills with Holy Ghost and the mind of Christ, the word of God and His nature, understanding of where we are being led and brings in Christ’s Kingdom and speeds up His return! The true gospel is the full counsel of God. Paul said, “For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God!” (Acts 20:27)
Are there false gospels? Absolutely! Paul says in Galatians 1:8, “But though we or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” You be Anathema (accursed) if you want to be but I will follow the true gospel. The false gospel only speaks of how eight men were saved. If you leave out the animals, I don’t want to get on that boat. And my cat doesn’t want to get on that boat, yet that is just what they do in the false gospels. They get saved and wait to go to Heaven but my bible says, “The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force.” (Matthew 11:12) Violence means to press or to force. I don’t accept any gospel which doesn’t accept animals because it is a false gospel. I once knew a traveler with a dog. He was told to come into the wonderful Christian conference. Then they said, “No, no the dog can’t come in here.” The traveler said, “Any place that is too good for my dog is too good for me.” He went away unsaved!
Who preaches false gospels? To be a heretic means you choose for yourself. God spells everything out so we don’t need to choose for ourselves. A boat with no elephant dung is not our choice. An ark with no heavenly window is not our choice. Hirelings, those who preach for their gain, serve mammon, love money, make merchandise of you, and feel free to not study the word Nicolaitanes, turn the truth into a lie, add to the word, and take away from it, to create another gospel! Romans 1:25, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator who is blessed for ever.” It is not a matter of changing the truth for a lie for we are to grow close to the Creator and He will bring about our protection of the creation. If we get it wrong, we will perish.
Nicolaitanes are conquerors of the people. 2Peter 2:3 says, “And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingers not and their damnation slumbers not.” Do you want to follow somebody who is damned? Damnation means destruction. People who are preaching something false are sowing to their own destruction. Do you want to be destroyed? Then you better not let these people make merchandise of you.
Those who follow destructive ways show some of these signs: the results of a false gospel; divisions; deceptions; destructions; spiritual desertification; Ignorance; spiritual blindness; confusion; frustration; continuation of error; hurtful activities; hatred; lovers of pleasure more than God; giving Satan cover and freedom to rob, kill, and destroy; unnecessary death and suffering; delaying Christ’s return and making money instead of growing spiritually! The whole counsel of God is absent or misunderstood! In other words there is no transfer out of spiritual darkness into the light. Paul said if we love God and do not love His saints we are still in darkness. He goes on to say in Ephesians 1:15-17, “Wherefore I also after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and love unto all the saints, cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you in the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him.”
There is a penalty for spreading false gospels and reward for spreading the truth. The penalties are having your name blotted out of the Lambs Book of Life. Revelation 3:5 says, “He that overcometh the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life but I will confess his name before my Father, and before His angels.” Jesus said, “If a man loves me he will keep my words: and my Father will love him and we will come unto him and make our abode with him.” (John 14:23) There is no greater reward than being loved by Jesus and the Father and having the three of them in one making their abode with you.
The true gospel remembers the poor and includes every creature. Galatians 2:10 and Romans 8:19 I don’t know why people pay so little attention to the manifestation of the sons of God. We should make that our full time occupation when all creatures are waiting for it. They respond to love. God told King Naaman to go down into the Jordan seven times but it took his maidservant to remind him! Naaman got mad but he went down the seventh time and his flesh was restored as God promised. Maybe we don’t believe that all of creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God like Naaman didn’t believe he needed to go down seven times into the Jordan. If we would only try to love God’s creatures as he loved them we would discover all sorts of miracles. If we don’t believe in miracles, we don’t believe in God. God gave me the money to wash many loads of laundry in a Laundromat and God gave me a ranch that cost $40 million. In those cases it was God I became enthralled with, not the $18 and not the $40 million.
What is the True Gospel? If you don’t know, nobody will tell you. If you think it’s more fun to kill or wound an animal than it is to obey God, you lose. To go and be with God is far better than anything you will ever know. Romans 8:20-21 states, “Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay.” That sounds like Everlasting Life to me. And if you don’t believe that there is no sense in believing in Naaman. False gospels may help you build a kingdom but it will be a kingdom that God despises of such he says in Luke 13:28, “There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham, and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God and you yourselves thrust out.”
