We declare as Almighty God is our
witness and Judge that many people will (have) reject (ed) the Truth of God.
Meanwhile they preach and teach false doctrines regarding healing. They also
preach and teach that financial prosperity is a great priority in the religious
experience. Healing was given to the Apostles and the Prophets. However
humankind receives the ultimate gift with the knowledge and Truth of God. The
Truth of God will thus bring the unmerited prize of Peace and
Peace and Love,

CHRISTIANITY: FALSE TEACHING, FALSE DOCTRINES
THE HEALING MIRACLES
PART 20: GOD HEALS EVERY WOUND
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
The Prophet Isaiah is often noted as
the greatest Old Testament Prophet. Isaiah's vision of God is revealed in this
Book. In chapter 6 we see the call of Isaiah. In the year that King Uzziah died
Isaiah saw beyond his funeral rites and saw heaven. He then became immediately
aware of his own sins and the sins of the nation.
Isaiah 6:5. God Commissions Isaiah.
"Then said I, Woe is me! For I
am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a
people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the king, the Lord of
When God called Isaiah as a Prophet,
God did not tell him that he would have great success. He told him that the
people would not listen. However he was to speak and write his messages anyway
because eventually some would listen.
6:8. "Also I heard the voice of
the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here
I am; send me.
Thus, the Prophet Isaiah begins
warning the people not to rebel against God. Therefore
As we move to the Prophets message in
Chapter 36, we see the prophecy against rebels. Here God also warns the people
Isaiah 30:1. "Woe to the
rebellious children, saith the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me; and that
cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:
The word cover in this passage means
to form an alliance. As the people moved to form this unholy alliance, the
prophet Isaiah condemned them. Sadly the people sought advice from everyone but
God. We also note that rebellious children in this passage is a general term
for the Jews as a nation. This term is further noted as the people counseled
Isaiah 8:11. "For the Lord spake
thus to me with a strong hand, and instructed me that I should not walk in the
way of this people, saying,
Isaiah was in the midst of a corrupt people. With a strong hand means that God spoke to the prophet with force. Thus, he warned him not to walk in the ways of the wicked. (Also see Ezekiel 2:8 and 2 Timothy 4:2).
Isaiah 8:12. "Say ye not, a
confederacy to all of them to whom this people shall say, a confederacy;
neither fear ye their fear, nor be afraid."
Here the Lord tells Isaiah if the
people suggest an alliance or confederacy be formed he was not to agree with
them. Even if they raised a cry of fear he was told to ignore them and tell
them to trust in God. (Also see 1 Peter 3:13-15).
We are also directed to a message from the prophet Jeremiah that adds to our understanding of this passage of scripture.
Jeremiah 6:31. "The prophets
prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love
to have it so and what will ye do in the end thereof?
When Jeremiah spoke, the people were
in a religious crisis. The Priests, God's ministers had left God. Thus they
were led by their authority and not by the Truth of God's Word. Meanwhile many
of these Prophets told lies and half truths that came from man in the flesh.
Also the people turned from the Truth of God's Word and heard only what they
wanted to hear and that which was pleasing. Thus Jeremiah like Isaiah often
spoke to deaf ears.
Isaiah 30:10. "Which say to the
Seers, see not, and to the prophets, prophesy not unto us right things, speak
unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
Some of the Jew as they continued
their rebellious ways settled in
30:11. 'Get you out of the way, turn
aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of
The Truth often makes one
uncomfortable. Here the prophets notes the Lord will turn from the rebellious children.
Meanwhile the Jews preferred lies and illusions that made them feel more
secure. Jesus said that the Truth will set you free. (John 8:32).

Ezekiel 13:7 and 1-10. Judgment against False Prophets.
The warning revealed in Ezekiel 13 is
directed against false prophets whose messages were not for God. False Prophets
had a large following because they approved of the peoples sinful actions.
2 Timothy 4:3-4. "For the time
will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts
shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears."
4:4. And they shall turn away their
ears for the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
Related Scripture Isaiah 30:11
Isaiah 5:24. "Therefore as the
fire devoured the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root
shall be as rottenness, and their blossoms shall go up as dust: because they
have cast away the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy
One of Israel."
The people suffered because they
discarded God's law. The Word of God is necessary for our existence, thus the
reading and study of the Bible is a high priority in our Christian lives.
Isaiah 59:13. Warnings against sin. Also, see 12 and 14.
"In transgressing and lying
against the Lord, and departing away from God, speaking oppression and revolt,
conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood."
Lying against the Lord and turning
away from God are the same. Thus when a man implies that the way of God is
wrong he is saying the way of God is false.
