A Title Wave of Deception

My wife took me out for dinner and a movie for father’s day us and another couple from our church we had a really nice time.  Happy father’s day to all you dads out there making ends meet the best way you know how; some of you may be cooks, police officer some may work in hospital or in the Mayors office as an aid or hay you may even be the Mayor or whatever maybe you’re a drug dealer I don’t know, but you get the point. What ever your job title is, be it chef, incumbent or dead beat that’s not your name; which brings me to this weeks blog post “A Title Wave of Deception”, note the spelling of the word title not tidal.

Curiously enough Father, Son and Holy Ghost aren’t the only title’s people trip over on their way to salvation. They also think that the title given to Jesus is some how His last name hence He is called Jesus Christ instead of Jesus the Christ. Christ means Messiah or Savior which are His descriptions, for He is the Messiah,” we have found the Messiah” (John 1:41) He is our Savior, “to God our Savior, (Jude: 25). If you follow the flow of these scriptures seems like God and the Savior are One and the Same. This is fortified by other scriptures, (Isaiah 42:8 ) “I am the Lord that is My name, and My glory I will not give to another.” Wonder what glory he’s talking about, all of it but especially the glory of being the Savior of His creation.  If we follow the flow of these scriptures like the Bible says precept upon precept, Line upon line here a little there a little (Isaiah 28:10) then it becomes clear that Father is another one of God’s titles and God is our Savior and neither is Salvation (derived from the root word Savior) in any other name, what name son or holy Ghost. No those are titles, the Name is Jesus. This is the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghost.

 Let me bring it a little closer there’s only one doctrine, right? One Lord, One faith, one Baptism (Ephesians 4:5), it can’t be Buddhism, Islamic, Hinduism, Confucianism, Methodist, Baptist, Taoism or any thing other than the Doctrine God gave, (Acts 2:48 ) That doctrine was given to the Apostles. In Matthew 28:19 why does Jesus tell His disciples to go therefore making disciple of all nations, baptizing them in these titles, Father, Son and Holy Ghost? Because Jesus spent the better part of three years teaching the apostles who He was and though there were others in the bible who claim to know who He was no one had the understanding that his Apostles had. That’s why when Jesus did ascend on high they did exactly what he said they baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost and that name is,,, come on I know you know that’s right Jesus. Jesus is the Father, Jesus is the Son and Jesus is the Holy Ghost. Fortify this with the scripture that reads, “for he has given him a name above every name that at the name of (that’s right) Jesus every knee should bow of those in heaven, on the earth and of those under the earth. (Phili. 2:9-10) The enemy try’s to use this as a stumbling block; truth is if you really want to be saved you won’t let anything stop you, period.

 My wife and I watched a movie last night based on an old radio serial called “The Shadow”. It stared Alec Baldwin as the Shadow. There was a catchy line in this move it went something like this; “who knows the evil that lurks in the hearts of men, the shadow knows”. That’s just the enemy glorifying himself as usual he’s the shadow in men’s hearts and its man’s choice to love that darkness rather than the light. Only God can see into man’s heart to know what’s really there and He has said that mans deeds are evil (John 3:19). When you love drinking, gambling, fornicating, stealing and lying just to name a few, you love evil deeds. When you love those things more than what God told you to do in order to save your eternal soul then you got a real problem my friend, I mean a real problem. It’s those who are tired of the hoopla, those who are ready and willing to do whatever it takes to know the God who gave them life and the only one who can set them free. The name of this blog is “A title wave of deception” truth is the enemy is the one the bible calls the deceiver. Deception needs two major components, one; the deceiver and two; the deceived. In these scenarios can you spot which is which? People say they want to loose weight, stop drinking, stop smoking, and stop lying to one another. They say they want to go to church more, read the bible more, blog more spend more time with their children but We never do, why? Is it because we’ve been deceived or is it because we simply choose not to? We are our own worst enemy. The desires that we have for things we say we want simply have no ambition to feed them. Get ambitious about your soul it’s the most important thing to you it’s yours and yours alone and whether you believe it or not its eternal it’s going to last forever. People dedicate sometimes more than half their natural lives to things that won’t matter in the end while disregarding the cry made continually every day, every week, every month and year their soul weakly, faintly crying out saying save us save us before its to late . My pastor tells us all the time that the two saddest words in the English language are too late. Please don’t let it be said to late there still time to make your calling and election sure, I love you all in the Savors wonderful matchless name, Jesus. Reign on those whose eyes may see these words but they do not understand, give them this understanding and cause them to be saved, before it’s too late in Jesus name Amen.

    Great post baby! 🙂 Salvation can come through no other name. And as you pointed out, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are all titles for one God. Your blog will definitely be controversial to some, but the truth to all whether they accept it or not. I love you!!
