11-1-2017 Bible Over False Prophets

Before a battle with Syria, Israelite kings consulted God. Ahab, the king of Israel, had 400 prophets who told him to go ahead. Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, asked if there was any other prophet to consult. “So the king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, ‘There is still one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may inquire of the LORD; but I hate him, because he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil’” (1 Kings 22:8 NKJV). Micaiah promised, “As the LORD lives, whatever the LORD says to me, that I will speak” (1 Kings 22:14 NKJV). One person who quotes God’s Word outweighs hundreds who do not. Jesus said, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mark 16:16 NKJV).

6-18-2015 A “Myth-stake” !

Paul left Timothy in Ephesus to “charge some that they teach no other doctrine, nor give heed to fables and endless genealogies” (1 Timothy 1:3-4 NKJV). A “fable” is a fictitious story which lacks facts to establish it. The Egyptian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman gods and goddesses were pure “mythology.” Aesop’s Fables, “Frozen,” Pinocchio, Superman, Santa Claus, Link, Lara Croft, Evolution and Climate Change are also “myths.” When children’s minds are filled and shaped by these “myths,” they can’t function well in the “real world.” God condemned false prophets who claimed “I have dreamed,” and “who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal” (Jeremiah 23:25-27 NKJV). The facts of God are crowded out by fantasies!
