“Soon, any doctrines of men will not be able to survive. All of them have one single factor that will not be able to stand true when difficult seasons are upon you. They all have self-fulfillment of some sort as their foundation, even though it is masked as serving Jesus. Many manipulate My Word to pad their comfort zones. Others provide justification to remain strong and have faith in their own faith. Still others say that they will not be touched if they speak themselves positively out of any harmful situation.
"Do not be deceived. The only proper focus of your belief is Jesus. Follow His life. Emulate His desires. He held nothing as His own. He had complete disregard for His reputation, safety, and even His very life, when it meant following My will. You are in a war for the souls around you. You are in training to lay down your life for the best interests of My Word and the welfare of others. You are to glorify Jesus. Any other doctrine is another gospel. Do not be part of it.”
Mark 4:24 AMP
And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you – and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.
Luke 9:23-25 AMP
23) And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also].
24) For whoever would preserve his life and save it will lose and destroy it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he will preserve and save it [from the penalty of eternal death].
25) For what does it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and ruins or forfeits (loses) himself?
We are hearing of saints, who have ministered for many years, falling away because the doctrines that they have purported are not standing the test of the pressures they are experiencing at this time. Their formulas simply aren’t working anymore. They have become disenchanted, disheartened, and angry at God when He does not respond to their demands and commands and faith strategies.
Create in me a clean heart and a proper spirit, Lord,
