The purpose of Destined to be Revealed is to share the mysteries of God with others who are seeking the truth. We are to consider those that cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine that we have learned, and avoid them (Rom 16:17). This warning can only be understood by those who have been taught the truth, and are therefor able to determine who the false teachers in the church are based on their teachings.
The wisdom of this world is foolishness unto God. Our knowledge of the truth is evidence that the testimony of Christ is established in us. Several of the byproducts, or fruits of the Holy Spirit, consist of goodness even righteousness and also the truth (1 Cor 1:5-8, Eph 5:9, Rom 15:13-14).
Matt 7:18, 20 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
The apostle Paul’s preaching was not with enticing words based on his own wisdom, but it was a demonstration of the incredible power of the Holy Spirit. Our faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God (1 Cor 2:4-5).
2 Tim 2:15-16 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
It is only when His Spirit truly dwells within us, that we can fully understand and follow our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Through His Spirit that abides in us, we can experience true love, joy and an enduring faith that can not be shattered. Christ alone is able to sustain us till the end, that we may be blameless at the day of the Lord. The hope or end result of our faith is the salvation of our souls (1 Peter 1:9, Gal 5:22, 1 Cor 1:8-9).
Eph 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive
The greatest deceptive carnal doctrines within the Christian church today, must include the false teachings related to Salvation, and what it means to be Born Again.
Salvation is quite impossible to obtain until the second advent of Jesus Christ at the end of this age. So if you can convince people that they already are saved, you can probably persuade them into believing many other false teachings.
One of the purposes of this deception, is to keep people from ever receiving the power to endure and overcome the world through Christ. Another is to ensure they never fully comprehend the Word of God, and this also allows the false teachers, to retain their position and power.
Matt 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ has given us a sure hope of eternal life through his Holy spirit. This is a characteristic that sets Christianity apart from all other man made religions. To allege that Salvation has already transpired, is to disallow faith and hope from occurring. How can you hope for something you already claim to possess (2 Tim 2:14-18, Rom 5:2, Tit 3:7, 1 Peter 1:13).
Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
You can not discuss the hope that you do not have, because of the assurance of Salvation that you claim to already possess.
1 Thes 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
It is indeed a tragedy to believe that you are Born Again, without ever experiencing the true indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which is the evidence of this transformation process. This lie is an empty promise that leads to death and destruction, as the ability to truly understand Christ and His life changing testimony is impossible without His Spirit (John 14:17-26; 15:26; 16:13; Eph 1:13).
Being born again and receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit are one in the same. Unless a man is born of water and of the Spirit, he can not enter into the Kingdom of God (John 3:3-8).
Destined to be Revealed a study guide unto the Light
Destined to be Revealed is designed to be a study guide unto the transformation of minds and hearts unto the light of Christ. Without his Spirit residing within us, we are for ever learning, but unable to come to the knowledge of the truth (2 Tim 3:7).
Luke 11:35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
The light that is within us, represents our spiritual understanding. But if that illumination is based on the traditions of man, and it is contrary to the Word of God, then what we really have is darkness.
It is essential to separate ourselves from the world, and put on the mind of Christ (1 Cor 2:9-16). When christian denominations, follow after the teachers of deception, they are involved in a system of religious beliefs and rituals (2 Tim 4:3-4). This is also the identification of a Christian cult.
2 Peter 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
The prophecies of scripture are of no private interpretation, this task is reserved for the Holy Spirit that teaches us all things. No denomination or individual has control over, or final authority on the correct understanding of what is written in the Word of God. As well all who are in Christ, including those at Destined to be Revealed, are of one body and one faith.
The writings at Destined to be Revealed, are not representative of yet another false teacher and his personal beliefs or biased opinion. The truth is Destined to be Revealed when we allow the Holy Spirit to teach and lead, as opposed to following after the doctrines of men.
Romans 8:6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
The carnal man without the true Baptism of the Holy Spirit can not understand or correctly proclaim the Gospel truth. With the Spirit of truth we can all rightly divide the Word of truth. This is a labor of love that every believer must participate in. We are not to depend on the doctrines and false teachings of men for our answers.
We should all to be able to give an answer, to everyone that asks, of the reason of the hope of Christ in us (1 Peter 3:15).
