“INGREDIENTS TO A GROWING CHURCH!” PART 2

Read Revelation 3:14-22. Yesterday we covered, I. “There must be a Genuine Love for God,” today;
 
II. THERE MUST A GREATER THAN EVER LOVE FOR THE WORD OF GOD.
 
Pease read Acts 17:10-11 and 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
 
God’s Book, the Bible is to the sinner a love story of appeal and a warning if rejected. To the Christian it is a book of instructions.
 
Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
 
Love for the Word of God means a constant study in order to apply the doctrines correctly. There are some very definite “danger signals” and “doctrines of demons” the Christian must be aware of.
 
1 Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”
 
Four danger signals:
 
A. Beware the teaching of “no other doctrines.”
Beware of anyone who denies the virgin birth, the
deity of Christ & His
resurrection, etc.
 
B. Beware of “endless genealogies” 1:4.
 
C. Beware of: Obstaining from certain foods 4:3.
 
D. Beware of one who knows it all 1:7.
 
CONCLUDED TOMORROW!
