Paul tells us:
2 Cor 11:1-3
1 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
1818 exapatao (ex-ap-at-ah'-o);from 1537 and 538; to seduce wholly:
Anyone is unable to relate what happened in "The Garden" to Daniel, Revelation and our Lord's warnings (Mark 13, Matt.24, Luke 21)
Indeed they think what happened in "The Garden" had ANYTHING to do with apples....
They are about to be espoused to the WRONG bridegroom !
Gen 3:1313 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.(KJV)
5377 nasha' (naw-shaw');a primitive root; to lead astray, i.e. (mentally) to delude, or (morally) to seduce:KJV-- beguile, deceive, X greatly, X utterly.
Matt 24:44 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.(KJV)
Mark 13:55 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:(KJV)
Luke 21:88 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.(KJV)
4105 planao (plan-ah'-o);from 4106; to (properly, cause to) roam (from safety, truth, or virtue):KJV-- go astray, deceive, err, seduce, wander, be out of the way.
KJV-- beguile, deceive.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
We are The Veteran's Christian Fellowship
or man's traditions ?
How are YOU fixed for armor ?
In any Bible study the very first step is prayer....He is our Heavenly Father he really loves to hear from His children.
We make use of Strong's Concordance, Green's Interlinear, and The Companion Bible
(1611King James).. We quote directly from the KJV as many of our references are keyed thereto e.g. Strong's etc. There are many translations of God's Word; a few are excellent, but almost all of the popular "modern" ones are denominational and/or biased into one or another 'tradition'(gnosticism, the non-divinity of Christ etc.).(The good King James was not infallible !)
It is quite enlightening to break down the translators work and examine the idioms and figures of speech used by the various authors of Scripture (through The Holy Spirit)...If it weren't so tragic it would almost be funny to watch folks "lift up serpents" (unfortunately some of them get fatally bitten each year).Its a figure of speech that some folk take literally...yes it is Gospel... yes it is literally God's Word....it means that you can deal with the devil and his liars......unscathed... in HIS service and in HIS Name.
We welcome questions and comments although we are not a debating society. If you transpose the 'm' and 1st 'n' in"denomination".....We are on watch; watchmen watching for enemy action; we have no "denominational" agendas (for God's Word on man's traditions see Ezekiel Chapter 4)...none of us earn our (physical)livings by teaching or preaching; in no way do we "earn" our spiritual living,either... it is thru His GRACE... GiftRecieved At Christ's Expense !.....Zerubabel brothers and sisters ! Come on OUT of man's lies and babel and into our Father's Word.
