Focusing on Following the Lord

Subject: Jesus is Lord

Dear Paul & Victor,

I have stumbled across your website and started reading your writings.  I have been one of the “brain washed” christians for years and have stopped going to church because I believe that the “church” is preaching Mammon louder that Jesus Christ Cruxified. 

I accept your teachings and your scripture references and what you are stating makes sense. I always felt like I am missing a chuck of God somewhere, an emptiness, and though the Bible says “I am made whole”.

I also lived in spiritual fear since my “born-again” confession – I have never been assured of my salvation – hell posed a tremendous threat to me, and I found myself in constant torment regarding death and having to “burn in Hell” forever and ever!  I had no peace!  I am unable to not think of death and the unknown!

I am tormented day and night over this.  How can a loving God tell me that He will save my soul but if I slip up somewhere I will land in Hell and burn forever? And even if I try my hardest to not offend Him, changes are I am going to be spue out of His mouth and cast into Hell!

Am I to understand that I was taught wrong? – I cannot be saved unless I accept Jesus Christ as Lord! I cannot accept Jesus Christ as Lord, unless I believe Him!  

To believe Him was also a problem for me, but after I read your writing, strangely, I do believe Him! I do accept Him as Lord over all and I am and I do hereby submit myself to his Lordship.  (I would like teachings regarding submitting to His Lordship).

BUT, I have a problem with:

There is not a ministry in South Africa that I know about that so not operate as you have descibed as “false” and not emphasizing Mammon – so how do I go about 

Warning: If you are hearing this Word of God that He has sent us to preach, do not forsake the fellowship of His Body. Come and submit yourself to the Head through those whom He has appointed as ministers of the gospel and shepherds for your souls. There are no lone rangers in the fellowship of believers, but all are brought together for the same Goal:

Kind regards

Charmaine

Dear Paul and Victor,

I am confused with your teaching of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus stated to the disciples that it was necessary for Him to leave so the Comforter may come (referring to the Holy Spirit) Also, Jesus is not on the earth today, but the Holy Spirit.

When the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray, Jesus said you should pray: Heavenly Father …..

In the Garden when Jesus was praying and in several instances, Jesus acknowledge the Father, i.e “take this cup from me” and “Father why have Thy forsaken me”?

Please enlighten me.

Also, I did not find the explanation on why the Word of God is not the Word who became flesh and dwelt among men, being Lord Jesus Christ?

Kind regards,

Charmaine

Hi Charmaine,

We bless the Lord for ministering the truth to you through this website He has given us. Where can you join the saints in fellowship? Where else?! 

You’re welcome to join our Sabbath chats and Bible readings/teleconference calls, those that are at a suitable time in South Africa. Register for the Forum on any page on the site, and we’ll direct you to the instructions in the Private section for these meetings. There you can gather with us and other believers – there are even a few from your country. 

As for teaching on His Lordship, here are several:

The Cross – Only the Death Sentence Will Avail 
Taking Up the Cross: “What Is Required of Me?” 
How One Is Saved
Law and Grace
Obedience
Repentance
So You Want to Walk with Jesus 
The Sons of Correction
Submission According to God 

You also ask about the one True God and His appearing in the flesh. Paul summed it up as follows:

“And without controversy, great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory” (1 Timothy 3:16 KJV).

The questions and doubts you have and more are all answered in our writings; however, let’s take one statement you made and quickly answer it. You say:

Also, Jesus is not on the earth today, but the Holy Spirit.

Who was it that stopped Saul of Tarsus on the road to Damascus and what did He say to Saul? 

And Who said what to the disciples just before leaving them?

John 14:16-18 MKJV
(16)  And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, so that He may be with you forever,
(17)  the Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive because it does not see Him nor know Him. But you know Him, for He dwells with you and shall be in you.
(18)  I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.

“And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, so that where I am, you may be also” (John 14:3 MKJV). 

Don’t try to figure it out, Charmaine. If you know Jesus Christ is Lord, as your email subject line declares, then obey Him – the One and Only Single Voice of God commanding and directing you into life. Doing that, you’ll know and understand all that you need to about Who He is. 

“And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true; and we are in Him that is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life” (1 John 5:20 EMTV).

With a focus on following the Lord, you can continue to read from the sections that answer your questions:

Jesus Christ Is God
The Trinity 

You ask: “Also, I did not find the explanation on why the Word of God is not the Word who became flesh and dwelt among men, being Lord Jesus Christ?

Why would we explain that the Word of God is not Jesus Christ, when plainly He is the Word of God made flesh? Or did you mean something different?

Paul and Victor

A Fool Judges Before Reading
From: Harald To: The Path of Truth Sent: Wednesday, April 13, 2016 3:56 PM Subject: Joseph Prince You are wrong about Joseph Prince. You should focus on preachers that preach condemnation. Is JP perfect? No, but I have witnessed in my spirit his genuine love for Jesus. Money is not the evil, it is the love of money. Wealth can be from God and be used by the church to further the gospel and honor Him.  Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon were wealthy and loved God. What about Job? God loves his children and wants to bless them. Besides this any blessing and provision is held with open hands because it is all the Lord's. I have much joy in my heart with a genuine increase in Love from my Savior Jesus Christ. I have heard many sermons of Joseph's and I truly believe that he is filled and led by the spirit of God! Paul had much opposition and from who? The religious and self righteous who cannot accept the love of God. They believe their works will restore their relationship with God. Only the free gift of righteousness by faith as with Abraham will restore our right relationship with our beautiful Savior. To Him be the honor and glory forever, Amen!! We love because He first loved us. I will pray that your hatred turn to love. Lord Bless you both!

Working for a Woman 'Pastor'?
From: Juli To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, February 11, 2016 7:13 AM Subject: Thank you. Thank you so much for your site. I worked for a pastor for years here in Missouri and she taught me many of these things regarding the Truth. When she was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 82, we had so many pastors visit and tell her: well read these books and proclaim this or that. At that time, I remembered Job. The first sentence in the book of Job tells us he was a good man- not that he lacked faith. There is so much out there right now that is false, and many are being deceived.  Hosea 4:6 tells us, "My people perish for lack of knowledge." How are we to "love His appearing.." As in 2 Timothy 4:8, when we don't know Him? It seems we are in a time where many do not even attempt to find out if things line up with the Word. I really thought your words about Andrew Wommack were spot on. I couldn't stop reading as these are all things, as a church, we had discussed- and had people tell us we were "overly critical." Well, I just wanted to say thank you for continuing in Truth. We need it in these times. Thanks Again, Pastor Juli From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Juli Sent: Wednesday, February 17, 2016 7:23 AM Subject: Re: Thank you.  Hi Juli,  Thanks for the feedback. This is the Lord’s site – all His doing. Perhaps you spoke too soon thanking us for the site and for continuing in the Truth. What do you make of this Diabolical Doctrine?  ...
