“MAKE SURE OF ALL THINGS
HOLD FAST TO WHAT IS FINE.”
(1 Thessalonians 5:21)
Just how Important
is ACCURATE Knowledge?
OUR EVERLASTING LIFE IS DEPENDENT
UPON ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE!
KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT?
“And this is the way to have eternal life-
–to know you, the only true God,
and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.”
It is clear by the above statement made by Christ himself,
that knowledge of two people is required for everlasting
life. Christ counted himself and his Father as those 2 people.
Knowledge of the only true God – “JEHOVAH”
and also; knowledge of the one HE sent Forth – Jehoshua Christ.
are both required to achieve everlasting life.
Knowledge requires reading, searching, and studying
the bible. It may also require studying and researching information
outside of the Bible which is related to the Bible. Secular sources
give us information on subjects that are taught in some churches
that are not mentioned in the Bible, such as Easter, and Halloween, etc.
Importance of Obeying “Accurate” Knowledge
of God and His Son.
“For if we go on deliberately and willingly
sinning after acquiring an accurate knowledge
of the Truth, there is no longer any sacrifice
left to atone for our sins. We have ejected Christ’s
sacrifice and are left on our own to face the
mighty Judgment of God.”
“If we deliberately keep on sinning
after we have received the knowledge of the truth,
then no sacrifice for sins is left, but only
a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging
fire that will consume the enemies of God.
TRADITION OR BIBLE?
WHICH DO WE CHOOSE?
some people base their faith on Bible knowledge
while others follow man made doctrines or traditions
that have been handed down to them.
Some people search for scriptures to support their
man made theories – and when they find scriptures
that don’t – they get angry and avoid such knowledge.
ZEAL WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE
“… they have a certain zeal and enthusiasm
for God, but it is not enlightened and not
according to correct or accurate knowledge.”
To Please Jehovah God, we must follow in the steps
of his son – and his teachings.
Our knowledge must be based on truth.
For indeed Jehovah God is looking for suchlike ones-
who worship him in spirit and in truth.
“Yet a time is coming and has now come
when the true worshipers will worship the Father
in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers
the Father seeks.”
Over the centuries in history – many evil things have
been done in the name of Christ – because their zeal
was NOT based on “Accurate Knowledge”.
“Many will say to Me on that day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name
…and done many mighty works in Your name?
And then I will say to them openly – publicly,
I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act
wickedly – disregarding and ignoring My commands.”
“It is not good to have zeal without knowledge…”
“…they are zealous for God,
but their zeal is NOT based on knowledge. “
They didn’t really pay attention to Christ’s teachings –
and therefore did things
that he would NOT have approved of.
“… And then I will say to them openly – publicly,
I never knew you; depart from Me,
you who act wickedly
-disregarding My commands.”
“On judgment day many will tell me,
`Lord, Lord, we prophesied in your name
… and performed many miracles in your name.’
But I will reply, `I never knew you. Go away;
the things you did were unauthorized.’ “
Even this somewhat flippant version of the Bible –
gets the point across – of the many things that
have been done in Christ’s name that he would not
“I can see it now–at the Final Judgment
thousands strutting up to me and saying,
“Master, we preached the Message,
… our God-sponsored projects
had everyone talking.’
And do you know what I am going to say?
“You missed the boat.
All you did was use me
to make yourselves important.
You don’t impress me one bit.
You’re out of here.’ “
WORLDLY WISDOM PALES
TO THE KNOWLEDGE
THAT ONE RECEIVES
FROM JEHOVAH GOD.
“For Jehovah giveth wisdom;
out of his mouth come knowledge
“The wise men are put to shame,
they are dismayed and taken:
lo, they have rejected the word of Jehovah;
and what manner of wisdom is in them?”
Jehoshua Christ said In prayer to Jehovah God –
“Sanctify them by means of the truth;
your word is truth.”
– (John 17:17)
DO YOU WORSHIP GOD WITH – TRUTH?
IS YOUR WORSHIP
BASED UPON ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE?
