In Second Thessalonians , Paul addresses rumors and claims that the “ Day of the Lord has set in ." False information about the “ arrival ” of Jesus was disrupting the Assembly, and this disinformation was being attributed either to a “ spirit ,” word (l ogos ), or a letter “ as if from ” the Apostle Paul and his coworkers.

The Danger Within

Church leaders warn us of the dangers posed by groups outside the church in the surrounding society; “liberal” politicians, “Woke” ideology, the “gay agenda,” and the like. Forces that are destroying society, perverting the culture, and undermining the “Judeo-Christian” values on which the United States of America was founded, supposedly.

Prophetic Blunders

According to Moses, “ When the prophet speaks in the name of Yahweh and the word does not come to pass, that is the word Yahweh has NOT spoken .” If this guideline remains applicable, many churches have embraced an interpretive school of prophecy that does not represent what the Bible says, namely, Dispensationalism, and this is demonstrated by its long history of failed predictions, speculations, and expectations.

Deceiving and being deceived

ARE WE LISTENING ? In his Olivet Discours, Jesus warned of coming “ deceivers ,” “ false anointed ones ,” and “ false prophets ” intent on misleading his disciples, and his repeated warnings are expanded in the writings of his Apostles. His Discourse began with a stern warning - “ Beware lest anyone deceive you! ” - “ MANY ” deceivers would come and “ deceive MANY .”

Counterfeiting Jesus

“ If any man preaches any gospel other than that which you received from us, let him be accursed! ” As a young believer, I listened to voices from different churches exposing me to divergent interpretations within the church world. However, despite occasional differences, most churches were proclaiming the same Jesus, the Son of God who gave his life for the sins of the world.

A Palavra Viva

O Evangelho de João identifica Jesus como o Logos , a “ palavra ” através da qual Deus fez todas as coisas. Este é um tema-chave de João . Ele usa idéias tradicionais da Bíblia hebraica sobre como Deus criou o universo, especialmente a vida através de sua palavra falada. Jesus de Nazaré é a expressão última dessa palavra e o Deus vivo.
