The Truth You Need To Know (Beginning Of Series)

At the leading of OUR FATHER, I will be beginning a series of blogs that will expose truth to contend with errors roaming the earth. I want each of you to read the blog and then GO STUDY for yourself, search the scripture and pray, let Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth; lead you into ALL (HIS) truth! 

Truth About Christian
I have been going to church since I was vey little. Every church and every preacher has taught us how to be good "Christians". We have been taught to obey, love and have strong faith so we can prove we are walking that Christian life. However, we have taken a "badge of honor" that is not organic to faith. 

We have all kind of just gone with the flow of what has been taught. From generation to generation, we just repeat what we have heard and not actually checked if what we have been taught is HIS TRUTH. We are in a time and season, where we have to KNOW HIS TRUTH and dispel error. We cannot overcome doctrines of devils (I Timothy 4:1) if we are unwilling to seek out HIS TRUTH. Many of us have been deceived by what we have called "the truth" because everything we call truth is not HIS TRUTH. 

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Jesus is TRUTH all by Himself and we MUST know Him. As we know HIM as TRUTH, we become set (John 8:32). 

In my years of studying I have stumbled upon some things that have blown my mind. We must now take the time to be reeducated so that our mind will be renewed. We have to find HIS TRUTH and allow it to set our minds FREE totally. 

Here are the 3 Scriptures that mention the word, Christian:
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.

Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

When you studied the word Christian, you will fine something very interesting. Christian was never what believers called themselves. The word Christian was actually a mockery term that came from Gentiles (non-Believers in The Way). Why is this important? You can never change the intent of a thing. Christian began as a derogatory term and it is still one. Gentiles, non-believers, first began calling the Disciples of Christ, Christians at Antioch according to Acts 11:26. To many this would mean nothing but if neither God nor Christ called us Christian we shouldn't call ourselves Christians either. Too often we are willing to take non-Organic terms, actions, thoughts and try and make it acceptable to the Church and we do not have authority to do that. 

Christ never asked us to be like Him. Within Scripture, the word disciple is mentioned 243 times. Almost all of them are directly from Jesus Himself. We are to be known as Christ's disciples.

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.  John 13:35

Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. John 15:8

A disciple is a disciplined and taught student of a teaching or a teacher. We are to bear fruit, the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), which is love and then we would be known as DISCIPLES not Christians. As long as we claim to be the opposite of what Christ Himself calls us, we deny our true identities in Him. 

We have to stop trying to purify, cleanse and utilize derogatory terms and make them badges of honor. It was not until the 2nd Century that Christian even became a badge of honor. The original apostles and church did not accept this term and neither should we. We are the CHURCH, called out ones purposed to legislate, DISCIPLES, the taught and disciplined followers of Christ. We are the LIGHT of the world and the SALT of the Earth, we are not what the world or Gentiles call us.
