Hypocrites’ craftiness and deceit

Truly, Bro Eliseo Soriano’s blog proves what it means and what it says by the help of the Holy Bible/Scriptures. He was able to distinguish who hypocrites are. He said that a hypocrite  is one who thinks of himself as having humility by showing politeness in speech and remarks but teaching false doctrines.

So Homar and to the readers,

I hope you see the light from here. Do not be a follower of Satan, who certainly uses bible scriptures not knowing how to divide the word of truth. Satan uses scriptures to hide the reality and truth using deceit.

Take for example the ff:

1. the three friends of Job, certainly. Let me prove it by reading Eliphaz, he said:

Job 22: 1Then Eliphaz the Temanite answered and said:
15Will you keep to the old way
that wicked men have trod?

21 “Agree with God, and be at peace;
thereby good will come to you.
22Receive instruction from his mouth,
and lay up his words in your heart.
23If you return to the Almighty you will be built up;
if you remove injustice far from your tents,…

What did the LORD reveal to us, even if Eliphaz spoke about God’s greatness and even the old way:

Job 42:7 7 After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.

Job’s three friends were trying to insinuate that they know God’s instructions and he doesn’t.  If these three friends of Job was not pretending to know God and His instructions, they would not advise Job to keep away from the old way. God is the old way and they don’t want Job to walk there.  And because of this ignorance and hypocrisy, God rebuked them for their folly. 

2. the craftiness of the serpent when it beguiled Eve about the fruit of good and evil:

Genesis 3:
1Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made.
He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”
2And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, 3but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’”
4 But the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. 

God said, I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not make any graven images or any likeness that is in heaven…etc. Thou shall not bow to them nor serve them for I am a jealous God visiting the iniquities of the fathers, etc… But what do other religions taught us? That bowing and kneeling down to  graven images such as angels, saints, and graven images in their Chapels and Churches are just a sign of veneration.

Israelites and Christians alike were all commanded not to worship anybody, save God.

Exodus 20:

 4 “You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.  

Satan influences you to think that to follow him is better than to follow God. Satan misleads you in believing that what’s bad for you is what’s best for you.

3. when Satan tempted Jesus,

Matthew 4:1Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil.

2After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’

5Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6″If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:
” ‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”

7Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’”

8Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9″All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

11Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

4. when the serpent disguised his own testament similar to the old and new testament:

Rev 12:15

Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.

When you comment or criticize, please give proofs coming from what is written in the Scriptures. Think of those examples above and distinguish yourself if you are becoming a user of the scripture that might be leading so many souls to confusion and deceit, even deceiving one’s self. You are trying to quote the verses in the bible but you yourself do not know what these mean. Just like what the three friends of Job did.

How can you show respect and gentleness to people if you are a hypocrite? An example of a hypocrite is one who thinks of himself as having humility by showing politeness in speech and remarks but teaching false doctrines.

1 Peter 3:15

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.

 But

 do this with gentleness and respect,

16keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.

17It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. 

Just be honest, are you really suffering because of pride that someone is better than you in terms of biblical and spiritual knowledge and you are really interested in money you earn by merchandising the word of God. But if you really think you are serving God, then compare with the whole scriptures and try to live by the word of God.

It is what the Christ as Lord’s words that we should follow, in humility; not the hypocrisy of Satan, even his words.  What about respect?  We are all needing to be respected in many ways.  One is to be freed from deceit and lies.  We need truth, we deserve the truth! If you respect others, then do not teach other gospels or false doctrines.

2 Peter 2:1

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

Because who cares if you know the verse when anyone can state or read to us verses and chapters, even memorize them. But certainly, no one in this time can give us the underlying meaning of the mysteries and revelation from the bible without the help of the Holy Spirit, the “the way, the truth and the life,” most especially, the “grace” of God given to the overseer/reader, Brother Eliseo Soriano.

1 Timothy 6:20Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care. Turn away from godless chatter and the opposing ideas of what is falsely called knowledge,

 21which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith. 
 

Surely, you can ask me of the verse that speaks of Brother Eli too, and I will gladly reply.

1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
16keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander.
17It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.

    It is evident that nowadays there are MANY FALSE PREACHERS, FAKE SHEPHERDS(Isaiah 56:10-11), FICTITIOUS APOSTLES(2 Cor. 11:1,13), PRETENTIOUS MEN of GOD as they called themselves(Rev.2:2), PSUEDO SEERS(Isaiah 30:9-11), FALSE PROPHETS(MAthew 24:11) and the BOGUS CHRIST(Mat.24:5,24: known as the ANTICHRIST(1 John 4:3, 2 John 1:7).

    There are the so-called Angels of Light that God has sent to the world to be of service to them who are worthy salvation and to them who are heirs of eternal life (Hebrews.1:5-7). But satan himself fools himself and his fanatics and followers for he PRETENDS to be an Angel of Light (2 Cor. 14:13-15), even his COHORTS who are called by the Bible as the ‘CONGREGATION of “HYPOCRITES”‘ (Job 14:34/Matthew 23:15) to DECEIVE and MAKE DECIPLES and ALLIES who are “MORE WICKED THAN THEMSELVES.”

    Matthew 23:15 saying, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him TWOFOLD MORE THE CHILD OF HELL THAN THEMSELVES.”

    The absence of a REAL SHEPHERD leads the people to WORSHIPING TO IDOLS (Zachariah 10:1-3).

    The Almighty God, the God of Israel is always and will remain faithful (1 Cor. 1:9) forever to His promises (Titus 1:2) and to His covenants. He once and for all made an everlasting covenant to the humanity represented by the just man named Noah that “He will no longer destroy the Earth through ‘deluge’ or ‘flood’ having the Rainbow as the sign of his faithful covenant (Genesis 9:13-14,17).” God always keeps His promises until now for He is the Father of lights who never changes nor having invariableness, nor shadow of turning (James 1:17).

    But now, in our very time, the world is in THREAT of a different kind of deluge or flood. It is not just an ordinary flood but a ‘GLOBAL DELUGE.’ The globe is flooded with the greatest of satan’s DECEPTIONS UPON DECEPTIONS propagated by his agents, the FALSE PROPHETS having evil spirits (1 John 4:1). For MANY INVENTIONS have PRESENTED TO and EMBRACED by the PEOPLES of the world (Ecclesiastes 7:29).

    It is very evident that nowadays, there are MANY IGNORANT PREACHERS (Ephesians 4:18), FAKE SHEPHERDS (Isaiah 56:10-11), FICTITIOUS APOSTLES (2 Cor. 11:1,13), PRETENTIOUS MEN of GOD as they called themselves (Revelation 2:2), PSUEDOSEERS(Isaiah 30:9-11), FALSE PROPHETS (Matthew 24:11, 1 John 4:1), ERSATZ TEACHERS (2 Peter 2:1) and the BOGUS CHRIST (Matthew 24:5,24: known as the ANTICHRIST (1 John 4:3, 2 John 1:7) who mounted like mushrooms all over the world. Their main goal is to gain of ‘NO ORDINARY EARNINGS’ but the “GREATEST PROFITS” AS MUCH AS THEY COULD HAVE as they made their church membership a BUSINESS (2 Peter 2:3) without any investments nor products at all but using the very Words of God in the Bible in HERESIES to their own DESTRUCTION (2 Peter 2:1) and to DECEIVE NOT ONLY THEMSELVES but the peoples who are ignoramus to God’s Words.

    There are the so-called Angels of Light that God has sent to the world to be of service to them who are worthy salvation and to them who are heirs of eternal life (Hebrews.1:5-7). But satan himself fools himself and his fanatics and followers for he PRETENDS to be an Angel of Light (2 Cor. 14:13-15), even his COHORTS who are called by the Bible as the ‘CONGREGATION of “HYPOCRITES”‘ (Job 14:34/Matthew 23:15) to DECEIVE and MAKE DECIPLES and ALLIES who are “MORE WICKED THAN THEMSELVES.”

    The absence of a REAL SHEPHERD leads the people to WORSHIPING IDOLS (Zachariah 10:1-3) that are the GRAVEN IMAGES in which their FOOL MAKERS worship their craftsmanship (Habakkuk 2:18). These graven images are made of SILVER (Hosea 13:2), GOLD (Hosea 8:4), STONE (Deuteronomy 29:17), WOOD (Deuteronomy 28:36,64) and lately, of PLASTICS and IVORY which are dumb idols (1 Cor. 12:2). These idols made by hands (Hosea 14:3) are believed by them TO STAND UP and TEACH THEM (Habakkuk 2:19); and the WOOD their FATHER and the STONE their MOTHER (Jeremiah 2:27). They all belong to the “FAMILY of WOODS and STONES” graven by ART and man’s CRAFTINESS or DEVICE (Acts 17:29). See how FOOLS they are in God’s eyes (Matthew 23:17, Romans 1:22). These are the abominable by-products of the craftiness of man’s wild and undisciplined imaginations contrary to the teachings of the apostles for the BIBLICAL CHRISTIANS TO HAVE DISCIPLINE in THOUGHT (Romans 12:3), in ACTIONS based on the Bible which are EXACT and NOT EXCEEDING to what is WRITTEN (1 Corinthians 4:6) and to OBSERVE ETIQUETTE in the HOUSE of GOD which is the CHURCH of the LIVING GOD (I Timothy 3:14-15). Biblical Christians are doing things with Biblical Bases like EATING (Acts 15:20, 28-29) / DRINKING (Luke 10:7), CLOTHING/APPAREL (1 Timothy 2:9 / James 2:2), HAIR STYLE(1 Peter 3:3) / LENGTH of HAIR for MEN and WOMEN (2 Corinthians 11:14-15), MARRYING (1 Corinthians 7:38), PRAYING (Mark 11:25 / Matthew 6:5-8), FASTING (Matthew 6:16-18), ALMS GIVING (Matthew 6:1-4), etc. for instance and even the use of the CALENDAR. Don’t you know that the Bible has the MOST ACCURATE and EXACT Calendar ever that the true Christians are following? Yet, such Biblical Calendar is unknown to the world…
