God’s Hidden Face #3

Thursday, July 7, 2022

“But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isaiah 59:2 KJV).

How can dispensational Bible study deliver us from experiencing a lifetime of fear, doubt, frustration, discouragement, and even apostasy?

If someone ordered us to throw away the Holy Scriptures because they were “unnecessary,” we would definitely know that person is untruthful and disregard such “advice.” Yet, Satan’s deception is much more complicated than simply “do not use Bible verses.” It is an alarming fact, but more damnable lies have been told among those who use the Bible, quote the Bible, and say they “love the Bible.” Although there are good Bible teachers and preachers, far too many people use the Scriptures to teach error than truth. Whether purposely or unintentionally, they promote falsehoods the public generally accepts as literal “Gospel truth.”

Picture a young man who really wants to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. A sincere, Christian female family member gives him a “Christian bestseller” book that a celebrity preacher wrote. This young man carefully read and believed the preacher’s words. One day, the young man dealt with that same Christian relative who was now suffering major health problems. His “suggestion” to her was what he had learned from the “Christian bestseller” she bought him: God was hiding His face from her because of some sin she had committed, and now there was no deliverance (see today’s Scripture)! Understandably, that news made the poor lady feel even worse—more overwhelmed, more hopeless, more depressed!!

Unfortunately, dear friends, the above account is true. That young man was I! All those years ago, I was a novice in Scripture and still in my denominational mindset. Not only had Satan’s errors reached me through a Christian lady who inadvertently gave me a “Christian” pastor’s false teaching (who was using Bible verses!!), his wicked lies got to her through me when I unintentionally relayed the bad information to her in counselling (and I was using Bible verses too)! Some 20 years later, that pastor’s “bestseller” has misled several hundreds of millions of unsuspecting “Christian” church members. Verily, verily, the Scriptures can be (have been) used to teach doctrines of devils….

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
