The Western church has given way to the world and it’s new doctrine, and politically correct language, and it’s fear of offending men, to the point that they have taken away the deity of Christ. Hyperbole? No, you can’t make this up.
We have all watched the dumbing down of American youth, but this is much more. I have watched youth leaders who say they can’t tell youth about prophecy, I have watched as they cared more about numbers and parties than teaching the truth. Whole churches even Christian radio has turned to money and numbers caring more about new buildings with coffee shops and gyms. But this tops the cake. I blame the greedy shepards.
Anyway I listened as a comedic news commentator interviewed young people asking them questions about Jesus. He asked one young woman “What was Jesus’ occupation?” She replied, “I don’t know, a Prophet I think.”
Oh my, the hackles raised on my neck. Of course as true Christians the answer would have been carpenter, as He was trained by His earthly Father Joseph.
This muddying the teachings of Jesus Christ has happened and the church is silent, in many, many cases the church is teaching this so not to offend Muslims. And then there’s the “A common word document” From Yale University early in the 21st century, that shreds the deity of Christ, which many prominent Evangelicals signed. Like Robert Shuler to name just one.
No where, I repeat no where in the Bible does it say Jesus was only a prophet. In fact many times it says the opposite even going into detail. Take Luke chapter 7 for example. One scripture quoted and twisted by eroneous doctrines of demons is “Behold a Prophet has been raised among us.” After Jesus raised a widows only Son from the dead. But read the whole chapter! Jesus declares John the Baptist to be the prophet set before Him, while he declares himself the Son Of Man. Then as if to clarify His Deity, as he eats in the home of a Pharisee he takes criticism from the self righteous Pharisee because he let a sinful woman wash his feet and anoint Him. Then He clarifies for all as He forgives the woman of her sins and tells her to go in peace her sins are forgiven! Of course the Pharisees wanted to know who He was that He could forgive sin. They missed it. Missed it completely.
Just as the self righteous Pharisees of our day think they know God’s word, but are foolish. That is just one example, there are many. His name is Yeshua HaMessiach. Not Jesus the Prophet, not ISSA. I know the argument for justifying the lie of issa or allah. It’s Arabic they say, it’s Arabic for Jesus and God they say. What language did Yeshua speak? Arabic? NO, ARAMAIC. What language do the scholars refer to as the pure language? Arabic? There is a pure language spoken of by Zephaniah in chapter 3 that God will pour out on His people. John tells about this word, he says the Word became flesh. Even Daniel and Joseph when under captivity did not call on God in the captors languages. Thus after showing their faith and miracles from God, the rulers wanted to know the God of Daniel, the God of Joseph. They didn’t say I want to know your “Ra” or the “bel” or the “baal” God showed His hand many times to show the world He was God, He alone, was God. He gave His Son as the Ultimate Sacrifice for Sin!! Breaking the veil, giving us free access to His throne through our High Priest Lord Jesus Christ!! Does that sound like a prophet to you? Jesus said one greater than Abraham is here, He also said, before Abraham, I AM. You would think they would have known that was God. Remember God told Abraham to tell the Jews that I AM sent him. He also lamented over how many times he wanted to gather Jerusalem as a hen gathers it’s chick’s under her wings.(Matthew 23) But alas the Jews of Jesus day was embroiled in greed and Roman times, and had forgotten their true love. Just as the modern church of today has forgotten. Why does the modern church continue to ignore warnings from the early church??
2 Corinthians 4 tells us why and left a prophetic message for the church today that goes unheard.
“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the Gospel, the Glory of Christ who is THE IMAGE OF GOD.
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.
STOP DENYING OR TEARING DOWN THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST BY DENYING THE DEITY OF CHRIST!
And Jesus asked Peter when discussing who the people said He was and Peter said they think your a prophet. He said to Peter, Who do you say I am? Peter replied, THE CHRIST, MESSIAH. (Mark 8)
If you deny me before men I will deny you before the Father. (Mathew 10)
There is only ONE WAY to the Father and that is through Christ. (John 14)
Again the watchmen are blowing the trumpets, with warnings from the early church but alas it falls on deaf ears. Wake up!
