Pharisees, Phoneys, and a Phairly Phenomenal Phalanx of Phools

The Voice of Elijah® Newsletter, January 2005

Excerpt From Newsletter

If you have been able to understand even a few of the things I have explained in this article, you should go back and study those things carefully. I say that because the point of everything I have explained can be summed up in one very simple statement: Very few “Christians” in our generation have actually received an ability to “see” the Truth the Prophets hid in the Hebrew Scriptures. Most of those who claim to be “Christian” today are nothing more than Pretenders— people who have never responded in contrition to the simple Gospel message so that they might be born again. Consequently, they cannot “see” anything but the goofy notions generated by their own unregenerate mind. If you have repented and been born again, you have received the “Spirit” of the Living Word of God. Parabolically speaking, that “Spirit” is “The Light” of the Glory of God, which has given you the ability to “see” through the “darkness” of the abject ignorance that is all around you. The Apostle Paul put it this way:

And even if our Gospel has been concealed, it has been concealed to those who are perishing. In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe, so that they cannot clearly see “The Light” of the Gospel of the Glory of the Christ—which is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves but Jesus Christ, and ourselves as your slaves through Jesus. Because the {Living} God is the One Who said, “A Light will shine out of darkness” —the One which has shone in our hearts for an enlightenment of the knowledge of the Glory of the {Living} God in the face of Jesus Christ.
(2 Corinthians 4:3–6) —my interim translation

Most “Christians” today are firmly convinced they already know the Truth. As a matter of fact, they are so mentally “blind” that they get angry when anyone even so much as suggests they may not know the Truth. So if you can at least “see” that you don’t know the Truth, you still have hope. But God expects you to move on from there and seek a complete knowledge of the Truth, wherever you believe the Truth can be found. Just remember this: God never intended the Truth to be debated; He intended it to be believed. So if you don’t believe the Truth can be found here, but for some reason feel an overwhelming compulsion to argue about it, you might want to consider something the Apostle Paul said about the “sight” that only God can give: (1 Corinthians 2:6–16).
