Spiritual Chameleons have a form of Godliness
Spiritual Chameleons are able to blend in so well that they are often overlooked, they can change colors to become what they perceive others want them to be.
Anyone that can change who they are depending on their surroundings, is like unto a Chameleon that is able to look in two directions at once. This individual is worth learning more about! The faith that they claim to possess is carnal rather than Spiritual. Faith that is not given from above is not really faith at all.
Faith comes by hearing, and our ability to hear is through the Spirit of Yahweh that dwells within His Elect. Our faith in Him, which is also one of the fruits of the Spirit, it is also an incredibly important shield that protects us from all evil (Gal 5:22, Eph 6:13-16).
The Spirit of Yahweh in us, illuminates the path we must follow unto eternal life. Every other road leads to chaos and destruction (Mat 7:13-14).
Having a form of Godliness
Spiritual Chameleons have a form of Godliness, but they deny the power thereof, as they are unable to let go of their own will and carnal intellect.
1 Cor 3:18-20 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with Yahweh. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, Yahweh knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain (or empty)
The appearance of a Godly life, is unto self-deception. Unless we are fully willing to submit to Yahweh, His Spirit will not be able transform our worldly minds. We must not depend upon our own wisdom or that of others.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of Yahweh
Our understanding of the gospel must not be based upon the doctrines of the false teachers in the Christian church. It also cannot be as a result of our own carnal interpretations. Our wisdom without the Holy Spirit of truth is foolishness with Yahweh.
To truly worship Yahweh is to do so with the power of His Spirit and truth. This enables an intimate relationship, somewhat similar to that of a child and his or her father (Mat 15:8-9, John 4:24).
To have a form of Godliness is to be forever learning, and yet never able to come to the knowledge of the truth (2 Tim 3:7).
1 Cor 1:17 For Messiah sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Messiah should be made of none effect.
True joy, wisdom and power only come from a Spirit-filled relationship when Yahweh dwells within us.
1 Cor 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
We must learn to look within, and judge ourselves in light of Scripture through the Holy Spirit. There is no hiding once we enter into this true relationship with Yahweh. Spiritual Chameleons do not have this ability. They can judge others but are unable to judge themselves.
Our Savior said” unless you are born of water and of the Spirit, you cannot enter into the kingdom of Yahweh. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit (John 3:5-6).
Our Messiah said the “words that I speak they are Spirit and they are Life”(John 6:63). Confusion and ignorance of the truth are several reasons why false teachings are accepted. Without His Spirit of truth, it is impossible to understand His Word of truth.
John the Baptist proclaimed that are two Baptisms. One of them is unto repentance, and as a result of the other, we can have the assurance of Salvation through the Holy Spirit.
Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire:
Messiah spoke plainly when He said that unless you believe and are baptized you shall not be saved. He did not say you are saved, but you shall be saved. We can have the assurance of Salvation through Him alone.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized (with the Holy Spirit) shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. Emphasis added
If what we possess is of the spirit of this world, we will be taken away, and be rewarded with emptiness and sorrow.
Luke 8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seems to have.
1 John 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth
The false teachers in the Christian church are the master spiritual chameleons. They deny Yahweh by reason of their damnable heresies and bring upon themselves and their blind follower’s swift destruction (2 Peter 2:1, John 16:7, Luke 6:39).
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of Yahweh truly dwells within you (1 Cor 3:16).
Now if any man does have not the Spirit of Messiah, he is not of Messiah (Rom 8:9).
We must never follow the doctrines of the false shepherd’s. Their deception leads unto damnation (Mat 15:8-9, John 4:24).
Trust not in your own understanding
The teachings of Messiah regarding the end time gathering is very clear. He said, one shall be taken and the other shall be left behind. Those who are merely playing church will be taken away, and the Elect will be left behind, to inherit the Kingdom at His Second Coming.
Mark 13:24-27 But in those days, after that tribulation… shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds… and then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect… from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
After the Great Tribulation, we will receive a kingdom that cannot be moved (Rev 8:12; 9:2; Heb 12:28).
2 Tim 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which Yahweh, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
The apostle Paul will receive the crown of righteousness at the same time as all those that love their Savior’s appearing do. This occurs upon His return to the earth. To imagine that one shall be taken to receive the reward of eternal life before this great tribulation, while the apostle waits until the end of that tribulation for his is nonsensical.
Yahweh will indeed judge those who are alive, and those who are dead, when He appears to set up His earthly kingdom (Isa 33:22, Eze 33:20, 2 Tim 4:1, 8, Heb 10:30).
If there is a pre-tribulation rapture then this group escapes the judgment. This is impossible, as it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgment (2 Tim 4:1; Heb 9:27-28).
Peter presents us with a message that the Spiritual Chameleons do not want to talk about because they are unwilling to pay the price. The true Church of Yahweh will partake in sufferings, for His name sake. They are able to endure through the power of His Spirit that lives within them.
1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Messiah’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
Earthly tribulations, are inevitable for those who are set apart unto Yahweh. These trials are but a small price to pay when you consider the eternal reward that is to be given unto the Elect who faithfully endure until the end (Math 5:10-12; Math 24: 29-31).
