Shout to the Lord - Hillsong
This person believed in a pre-tribulation rapture. I share this because this is a fallacy many follow. Not only is the pretrib rapture a fallacy, him saying it doesn’t matter what you believe about Jesus just as long as you believe in Jesus is also a fallacy. To say Jesus is returning to set up His kingdom is different than saying Jesus is returning to take those of His kingdom home. So with this line of thinking you can believe whatever you want. I can believe something all together different but we still all serve Jesus. No! That is not the truth of God’s word. Someone is seriously wrong. So how do we know what truth is? The answer is you test the spirits and see if they line up with the real Jesus. For example we have Baptists and Pentecostals. One says cessation and the other says anything goes yet both are wrong. One says pray a prayer be filled with the spirit while the others says pray a second prayer and be filled and to verify you have been filled, you speak in tongues as a sign. Yet they both believe in the rapture. You can’t have truth and falseness when talking about Jesus. If they truly had the Spirit as they say they do, then we would have the Spirit of truth. Think about this way. Jesus said in John 14:25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. I am pretty sure Jesus said there was only one way, one truth and one life. John 15:26 “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me.” John 16:3 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” John 16:8 “When he comes, he will prove the world to be in the wrong about sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 about sin, because people do not believe in me; 10 about righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and about judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.” Unfortunately what Jesus said about the world applies to the church because we have rejected his words. John 14:17 “The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him.” So if these groups are not teaching truth, who is the Jesus they follow and what spirits are in them.
