Strong Delusion in Scripture, Part 5: “The Great Hermeneutic Scam!”

To read Part 1, go here…April 27 (Strong Delusion in Scripture)

.

.

.

.

“…because they received not the love of the truth,

that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,

that they should believe a lie:

That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

2nd Thessalonians 2:10-12

.

.

.

.

.

In this current Internet age, the airways are literally teeming with Internet scams, all trying to cheat unsuspecting people out of their hard-earned money.

And most of these con-artists are masters at inspiring confidence in their naive victims, to the point that they willingly send money for some too-good-to-be-true merchandise.

LUCIFER, THE FIRST SCAMMER

.

But even though the Internet is relatively new, the con-game scams have been played for many long millenniums.

.

As a matter of fact, the very first con-game scam was played on our first parents, Adam and Eve, way back in the Garden Paradise!

.

That’s right! Lucifer was the very first con-artist. And he convinced Eve to take part in his evil and deceptive scheme.

.

Well, Satan has been playing his confidence games for a very long time. And people keep buying into these deceitful schemes, year-after-year, century-after-century.

.

THE HERMENEUTIC SCAM

.

Now one would think that the Church is too biblically savvy to ever fall into one of Satan’s traps.

.

 

But the fact is, the Church has been falling for Satan’s delusions for almost 2,000 years now.

.

And Satan is still busily bringing his deceptive scams into the church-world!

.

Listen…“there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies…And many shall follow their pernicious ways;” 2nd Peter 2:1, 2

.

One such damnable heresy has been named by theologians as, the “Hermeneutic of Literalism”, or the “Hermeneutic of Literal Interpretation”.

.

What this means, is that a Bible student must only come up with a literal interpretation of any Bible passage, unless context absolutely demands an allegorical interpretation.

HERMENEUTIC TOTALLY FABRICATED

.

But just search the Scriptures and try to find any support for this non-biblical rule of interpretation!http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Magnifying_glass_on_book_icons

.

Such scriptural justification doesn’t exist!

.

This hermeneutic is found nowhere in Scripture.

.

It is a totally man-made hermeneutic!

TWO SPIRITS

.

So exactly what does the Bible have to say about such theological literalists?

.

Listen…  “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.” 1st Corinthians 2:12, 13 

.

OK, so this above passage explains that there are two spirits in the world, the Holy Ghost, and the, “spirit of the world”.

.

And if we are filled with the Holy Ghost, then we will compare spiritual things with spiritual, when interpreting God’s Word.

.

And no, we will not do so promiscuously, but will carefully compare scripture with scripture, so as to arrive at the proper spiritual interpretation.

.

.

.

ERRING CARNAL MEN 

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:PS_Kr%C3%B8yer_-_Hip_hip_hurra!_Kunstnerfest_p%C3%A5_Skagen_1888.jpg

But Paul goes on to tell us what the spirit of the world will result in… But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1st Corinthians 2:14

.

So now we see that spiritual interpretations are foolishness to those who are yet in their carnal condition.

RADIO BIBLE TEACHERS

.

Oh yes, they will accept a few spiritual interpretations when context demands it.

.

But many radio teachers deride those who interpret the Bible spiritually as far as possible. They actually make up derogatory names, such as, “Replacement Theologians”, to belittle those who interpret Scripture spiritually.

.

And day after day, these well-scrubbed and very personable radio teachers gain the confidence of their audience by their charismatic personalities and by mingling much truth into their false teachings. And with knowledge of these basic doctrines, these very convincing personalities continue to indoctrinate vast audiences with this anti-spiritual propaganda.

.

And as a result, at the mere mention of the unbiblical, derogatory name, “Replacement Theology”, their audiences often become hostile against anyone who dares to interpret the Bible spiritually.

BIBLE A SPIRITUAL BOOK

.

But what they do not understand is that the entire Bible is, “the spirit of prophecy”.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Expulsion_of_Ishmael_and_His_Mother.png

.

And so, when reading such stories as Abraham and Sarah, and Hagar, these stories are prophetic, and require spiritual interpretations…

.

Listen… “But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” Galatians 4:23-26

.

So Paul certainly had no problem interpreting Scripture metaphorically! Here he takes a story that makes complete sense in the real world, and yet he still finds an allegorical meaning, making him, Paul, just another so-called, “Replacement Theologian”.

SCRIPTURE MUST NOT BE VIOLATED

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg.

Now a Bible student cannot just make any ol’ spiritual interpretation that he or she desires.

.

No, scripture must be prayerfully compared with all other similar scriptures, to discover what the Bible reveals to be the correct spiritual interpretation. This can often be a painstaking process.

.

And yet, this is the false accusation used by many apostate theologians against spiritually-minded Bible students and teachers.

.

In other words, they often will accuse them of just dreaming up their own totally fabricated spiritual interpretation, saying, “They are just picking-n-choosing their spiritual interpretations out of thin air!”

MUCH OF THE BIBLE CLOSED-OFF

.

Now those who have been seduced by this particular Hermeneutic of Literal Interpretation may not lose their Salvation over it.

.

And yet, the mere fact that they have been deceived, just might be an indication that they have not yet become truly saved.

.

But one thing is for sure! By convincing the majority of Christians that they must follow this hermeneutic, Satan has closed off a great portion of the Scriptures that God intended to be understood spiritually and allegorically.

MANY BIBLE STORIES ALLEGORICAL

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Saint_Lazare_-femme_adult%C3%A8re.jpg

.

Yes, many stories about Jesus are allegorical in nature. Stories such as “The Woman Taken in Adultery”, which is actually a picture of an adulterous apostate church, finally receiving forgiveness.

.

And many other true, historical accounts, such as Samson, or Jonah, or Job, or Esther, or David, or any and every other historical accounts in Scripture, were orchestrated by God to be allegories concerning Jesus and His war against Satan!

.

These were all given by God to be prophetic in nature, as is written… “for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation 19:10

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!”

Proverbs 25:25

.

But there is some very Good News. Yes, there is time to repent of this great error.

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

The Bible reveals…“But the Anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same Anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in Him.” 1st John 2:27

.

As this verse reveals, we are not required to be under the control of any human Bible authority. If we are indwelt with the anointing of the Holy Spirit we may study for our own selves, just what is truth.

.

But even if we do find a faithful Bible teacher, we should not merely accept everything he teaches, but diligently search the Bible daily for our own self, “to see if these things are so.” Acts 17:11

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

THE HOLY-GHOST-RIDER CONSTELLATION

.

“Gavest thou…wings and feathers unto the ostrich?….What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.” Job 39:17, 18

.

Here in the above condensed passage is revealed a tremendous Bible prophecy! Here the ostrich (being a symbol of the Church-Apostate) is going to lift up herself and scorn the horse and his rider.

.

Well, if we look in the winter-night skies, we might possibly have our eyes opened to see a most incredible constellation group, known as the “Horse and His Rider” Constellation Group.

Holy-Ghost-Rider on Goodly Horse (above western horizon)

.

And so, this above passage speaks of the time of the end (which we are just now in). And sadly to say, there will be many in the Church who will scorn this last message, just as the wisdom-deprived ostrich scorns the Horse and His Rider, who symbolize God’s Church in battle, being ridden by the Spirit of Christ! Such a sad ending for the Church-Apostate, to scorn the Holy Spirit: the same Spirit that they so often exulted in praise, with their lips!

.

This constellation group is made up of a number of smaller constellations: the horse’s head, made from the Perseus Constellation. The tail and rear end is partly of the Cassiopeia Constellation. The hind-leg is made partly of stars from the Andromeda Constellation. The Rider is made primarily from the Camelopardalis Constellation.
