The False Prophet, Part 13: “How To Start Your Own Gospel”

“…but to this man will I look,

even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit,

and trembleth at My Word (saith the Lord).”

Isaiah 66:2

.

There have been few men who have had a greater effect on our present-day Cyrus Scofield - 1920 - Wikipedia - US Public DomainChristianity than Cyrus I. Scofield.

.

Having the no-fear audacity to publish his own Bible, even changing some of the King James wordage, also adding his own commentary along side of God’s Holy Word, Scofield set a precedent for other Bible teachers, who picked up his mantle and carried on his heresies to later generations.

PRIOR CREATION!?

.

One of Scofield’s heresies was to insist that there were dinosaurs roaming the earth, PRIOR to the 7-day Creation account of Genesis.

Now of course, the fossil record shows that dinosaurs existed. But Scofield insisted that they existed PRIOR to the 7-day Creation! A totally different creation!

.

This heresy was picked up by such men as J. Vernon McGee who was a follower of Scofield’s teachings. (McGee later recanted this belief a few years prior to death.)

.

And why did Scofield teach such a heresy? Most likely because of the strong influence of “the theory of evolution” which took the world by storm in the 1800’s. Scofield believed evolutionists, and combined their so-called “science” into the Bible.

SCOFIELD WENT BEYOND SCRIPTURE

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1917_Scofield_Bible.jpg

Now the problem with Scofield was that he did not always allow the Bible to get into his way, as he carved out his own peculiar gospel: “the gospel according to Scofield”, so to speak.

THE RAPTURE

.Cyrus Scofield - 1920 - Wikipedia - US Public Domain

But this heresy concerning evolution was not Scofield’s only heresy.

.

No, Scofield, having read the writings of John Darby, latched on to yet another heresy, which these two men named, “The Rapture”.

.

Now fewJohn Nelson Darby - Wikipedia - US Public Domain Bible teachers and theologians are willing to admit this origin of the name, “The Rapture”, and often go into “double-speak”, whenever questioned about this!

.

In both cases (a prior Creation & The Rapture), Scofield added to the Bible his own doctrine using the totally non-biblical name, “The Rapture”, to replace the God-given name, “The Coming of the Lord”.

ADDING TO AND DIMINISHING OUGHT

.

So what was Scofield’s great error? Simple! He added to God’s Word. In both cases, Scofield went beyond the infallible Word of God, adding things never mentioned in Scripture.

.

But the Bible pronounces a curse on all those who add to or diminish from God’s infallible Word.

.

.

.

.

.

A CURSE UPON ALL WHO PRESUME TO ADD OR DIMINISH!

.

Listen to this fearful warning…“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” Revelation 22:18, 19

.

It is a fearful thing to presume to add non-biblical terminology to God’s infallible Word.

.

And yet, there doesn’t seem to be much of that healthy fear among God’s professed people today.

.

And this above passage pronounces the most fearful curse upon those who carelessly add to, or diminish ought from God’s infallible Word

.

Well, just what is the remedy for this lack of fear?

THE REMEDY FOR WORLDLINESS

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Angel_prayers.jpg

The remedy is found in James, Chapter 4, verses 4, 8-10…“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God…Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded. Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up.”

.

Here we have the cure for worldliness.

.

And worldliness is the underlying cause for spiritual apostasy.

WE MUST TREMBLE AT GOD’S WORD

.

Listen again to our signature Bible verse for today…“…but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at My Word (saith the Lord).” Isaiah 66:2http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg

.

But Scofield did not seem to have such a healthy fear and trembling at God’s Word. And neither do so many Bible teachers today. There should never be the attempt to replace God’s appointed name with a man-derived name, such as the unbiblical name, “The Rapture”. This name has been responsible for the notion of two separate Returns of Christ. Without it, that idea could have never been accepted.

.

There should be enough biblical evidence to support any new idea, such as Scofield’s idea of a prior creation before Adam & Eve. A plain, “Thus saith the Lord”, was lacking in Scofield’s theology regarding these ideas.

The Good News is that God has held back the four winds just long enough for all those who desire to repent of their unwatchful condition to begin to cry out for a “right Spirit” and a “new heart”.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

REVELATION 12 WRITTEN IN HEAVEN

.

“And there appeared a great wonder (or sign) in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder (sign) in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:1, 3, 6, 15

.

Here is a sketch of this Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12. This is the Winter Constellations of Signs Of Heaven. Besides Orion and his Horse, we also see pictured in this sketch, the Dragon of Revelation 12.

.

.

This Revelation 12 Woman Constellation is fleeing. As you can see, the Dragon Constellation is spewing a flood of water in her direction, as is written… “And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:15. This wave of water represents Satan’s lies, and his false teachers who tell those lies.

.

GOD’S MESSAGE: FLEE!!

.

Beholding the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation in winter, it seems that God is trying to get a very important message across to His people: that His Church is to flee! But what are they to flee from? Well, you can go to the article titled “The Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation”

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.
