Scripture clearly teaches that there are two & only two churches standing side-by-side at the end of the age. There is the true Church that is walking in truth according to God’s Word, the church that Paul speaks of in
1 Timothy 3:15: “the Church of the living God, the pillar and buttress of the truth.” Then there is the false Church, the counterfeit Church that Jesus warns about in the gospels, which is the harlot Church of the Book of Revelation, the bride of antichrist. This false Church is the product of the ministry of false teachers & false apostles & false prophets & that which is manifested in lying signs & lying wonders so that even the elect can be deceived.
Derek Prince says in his book Protection From Deception: We will either be the Bride – a member of the true Church or we will be the harlot – a member of the false Church. No alternatives exist.
This series of messages addresses how we can walk in biblical truth, how to avoid error & deception & how to exercise biblical discernment so that we are part of the Bride of Christ.
The Battle For Truth
Arthur W. Pink stated: “the nature of Christ’s salvation is woefully misrepresented by the present-day evangelist. He announces a Saviour (who saves people) from Hell rather than a Saviour (who saves people) from sin. And that is why so many are fatally deceived, for there are multitudes who wish to escape the Lake of fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and worldliness.” Another writer only identified as “Anonymous” wrote these powerful words: “The cross is the center of everything it means to be a Christian. The cross stands at the center of our theology, of biblical prophecy, of our purpose, of our message and our methods.”
Peter Whitcombe preached this series of messages on the finished work of the Cross of Christ (that sees our old history end with the cross & our new history begin with the resurrection).
The Cross of Christ
God declares in Jeremiah 9:23-24: “Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” The church has entered the postmodern era and historic biblical teaching has been replaced by “new theologies.” These ‘new theologies’ downplay the value of Scripture and sound doctrine and shift the focus onto emotionalism and experiential Christianity instead of Christianity based on truth.
In this series of messages on The Atrributes of God, Carl Ludemann teaches powerfully and clearly, key Bible doctrine that is much needed in the Body of Christ today.
