Strong Delusion In Scripture, Part 7: “Hypocritical Hermeneutic!”

To read part 1, go here…October 3rd (The Revelation of Jesus, Part 1, Seeing Jesus in Prophecy)

.

.

.

.

.

“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 2:11, 12

.

.

 

.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:St_Peter_Brandl_1724_National_Gallery_Prague.jpgThe Apostle, Peter gives us the following admonition…“Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:” 1st Peter 2:1, 2

.

So Peter (whom, by the way, God exposed as a hypocrite, prior to his full conversion) is counseling us to put away, among other things, all hypocrisies.

HYPOCRITICAL HERMENEUTIC

.

And so, in our great desire to perform all the will of God, we will attempt to fulfillhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_exclamation_mark.svg this above verse too, which counsels us to put away all hypocrisy.

.

Now in putting away all our hypocrisies, let’s not neglect to put away one certain hermeneutic which has been the source of much hypocrisy within the ranks of today’s theologians, Bible teachers and parishioners for a long time.

HERMENEUTIC OF /HISTORICAL/GRAMMATICAL/LITERAL INTERPRETATION

.

And just which hermeneutic (method of interpretation) is the source of so much http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpghypocrisy?

.

It is the so-called hermeneutic which demands the Bible must be understood literally as far as possible.

.

In other words, those who needlessly allegorize various Bible stories are violating this hermeneutic.

NO BIBLICAL SUPPORT

.

Now the reason this website calls this hermeneutic, “so-called” is because it has no biblical validity.

 

.

As a matter of fact, the Bible actually encourages us to find the spiritual interpretation…

.

For example, listen to 1st Corinthians 2:13… “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.”

.

Here we see that it is the work of the Holy Spirit to teach us heavenly wisdom, “comparing spiritual things with spiritual”.

.

.

.

.

.

SPIRITUALIZING IS FOOLISH TO THE CARNALLY-MINDED

.

Yes, the Bible is a spiritual book. And only those who are indwelt by the Spirit ofhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Holy_bible.jpg God can rightly discern that spiritual nature.

.

But in the apostate portion of the Church, this truth is scorned by most theologians and Bible teachers, just as is written…“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

.

Yes, those who are still carnally-minded with the church world view all such spiritualizing as foolishness, just as this above verse reveals.

A “HANDY” HERMENEUTIC

.

Now in addition to this heretical hermeneutic, most of these theologians and Bible teachers are guilty of a further sin, the sin of hypocrisy.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brown_tree_snake_Boiga_irregularis_2_USGS_Photograph.jpg

.

And just what is the source of that “forked-tongued” hypocrisy?

.

You see, the fact is, those who claim to adhere to this hermeneutic, conveniently ignore this so-called hermeneutic whenever it serves their purpose to do so.

NUMBERS, CHAPTER 14

.

For instance, in substantiating another unbiblical doctrine, “The Age of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bible_paper.jpgAccountability”, they will often uses the story of God’s people who were under the age of twenty being allowed to enter into the Promised Land.

.

But there is nothing in that true historical account which demands an allegorical interpretation.

.

It is totally a voluntary ignoring of that so-called hermeneutic, which allows theologians to prove the so-called, “Age of Accountability” church-doctrine using that Old Testament story as a proof-text.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Saint_Lazare_-femme_adult%C3%A8re.jpgMANY BIBLE STORIES ALLEGORICAL

.

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!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgBut there is some very Good News. Yes, there is time to repent of this great error.

.

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

REVELATION 12 WOMAN CONSTELLATION

.

star-chart ursa major summerr

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

.

 

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
