DO NOT COMPROMISE THE GOSPEL
A VISIT TO HEAVEN AND
In the early 1900's I went to Fiji for six years in a row. On one of my visits, I was greeted by excited
students at a Bible college in Labasa. They
reported that four young girls, ages 16, 16, 17 and 19 had fallen to the floor
after a prayer meeting and were "slain in the Spirit" from about
10:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. Their parents
watched over them during that time. When
they awoke, they testified that two angels came for each one of them and
transported them to heaven. It was a
group visitation and each one confirmed what the others had seen and done. They
saw many wonderful things..
Then they shared that angels came to take them to hell. "The Lord wants you to see what hell is
like, so you can tell the people on earth." Their stories were viewed on national
television and I had the pleasure of interviewing all of them individually.
THERE ARE PASTORS IN
The oldest of the group said that she recognized a number of
pastors in hell. She asked the angel who
was with her, "Why are they here?"
The angel replied, "They compromised the gospel." Some had been well-known pastors in Fiji.
At the end of the interview (I have it on video tape), I
asked if she had any last word to share with the people back home in Hawaii. Tears rolled down her face as she stated,
"Tell the pastors not to compromise the gospel."
There are many Christians in hell too. A great number are in hell because the
churches they attended did not preach repentance and the need to walk the hard
and narrow road that leads to life. They
continued to sin and seek the good life while on earth. God is going to hold pastors and church
leaders accountable. They are
responsible for many souls losing their salvation and going to hell.
The Bible is clear that we are not to accept a different
Jesus from the one in the Bible, or doctrines and practices not taught by the
first apostles. 2 Co.
3-5; Gal. 1:8, 9. We are to "earnestly contend for the faith which
was once delivered unto the saints."
What is the meaning of the word "compromise?" Webster's Dictionary says that compromise
means, "Give in, concede, concession, meet halfway."
2 Thessalonians 3:2 says, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the
son of perdition."
The Amplified Bible puts it this way: "Let
no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the
apostasy comes first - that is, unless the [predicted] great falling
away of those who have professed to be Christians has come - and the man
of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition)." (Underlining mine)
Apostasy means: "To
turn away from one's original beliefs."
At the end of the world (today), the church is going to turn
away from its original beliefs and there will be a great falling away from the
truth. The Jesus we worship will be
vastly different from the Jesus of the Bible, and the doctrines and practices
of the church will be poles apart from those of the early church. Beware of the leaven (the false doctrines) of
the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. Mt.
16:6, 12; Mk. 8:15.
"Know ye not that
a little leaven leaventh the whole lump?
Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are
unleavened." 1 Co. 5:2. The
doctrines and practices of modern Christianity are pumped up with the leaven of
impurity and insincerity. Today's church
is nowhere close to the church the Lord Jesus gave us when He returned to
heaven, in both structure and doctrines.
We have failed to heed God's warnings.
Let us fear God and restore the purity and unleavened truth of
the Bible and early church, and worship God in spirit and in truth. Jn. 4:23, 24.
