Daily Bread 11/4/2022


    Daily Bread – November 4, 2022 (The Sixth Day – Genesis 1:24-31) 2 Corinthians 11:4 – For if one comes proclaiming another Jesus Who we have not proclaimed, or you receive another Spirit Who you have not received, or another Gospel who you have not accepted – you are all amazingly tolerant! The Fruits Of The Message Reveal The Origin The one way each person can know for certain whether or not a person is preaching the same Jesus Paul preached is by the fruits it produces in the lives of the hearers. If the preacher turns men from their sin and iniquity unto a life of righteousness and purity, then it is the same Jesus Paul preached. Otherwise, they are these people Paul described here – false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as the apostles of Christ. They, just like Satan, are disguised as angels of light, but they are ministers of unrighteousness (2 Corinthians 11:13-15). Their message of the cross does not free men from their sins and give them power over Satan. Their message of the Holy Spirit does not produce the fruits of righteousness, holiness, and purity. Their message of the Gospel does not liberate the hearers to walk in the freedom and liberty of Christ Jesus; but instead, holds the hearers in bondage to sin, and justifies acts of iniquity. Their deception is a lie that will bring damnation; and their heresy is nothing less than doctrines of devils that will ensnare those who had completely escaped the power of sin and death and leave them defenseless against the dominion of the devil.
