The Bible says that it is more blessed to give than to receive. As a minister of the Gospel and Judgments of Jesus Christ, I take great pleasure in sharing the nuggets of wisdom that I have been given by God. The positive feedback that I have received from those who benefited from those nuggets of wisdom is priceless. They were once in ignorance, void of wisdom but when the Truth came they received it with a glad heart and they were set free! The darkness of delusion was lifted and now they see clearly. In turn, they share this wisdom of God with others and likewise bring souls out of darkness and release them from the Devilish Descent.
But there is a dreadful case of a person. This person surely is in ignorance. With great concern we reach out, mercifully extending the life-line of sound biblical doctrines and teachings, only to be despised by their continued displays of ignorance. They have been offered correction to the error of their ways but yet and still their disdain of the Truth grows. The ignorance that we had initially detected is now growing to another form. This form of new growth has evolved from an untreated case of ignorance. The vile descent progresses. What we now see is a metamorphosis from the malignant case of ignorance that was initially harmless, to now, a type of acute stubbornness. The knowledge of the Truth was presented to them, the antidote, if you will, but it was despised and now stubbornness has taken root.
“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them” (Romans 1:19 KJV).
They can no longer claim innocency by hiding behind the veil of ignorance. Now the soul is deliberately taking action to avoid what it knows to be True. The inward being knows the Truth but the Ego takes precedence and now stubbornness rules. Stubbornness is a partner to Pride. This stage of spiritual descent may be irreversible. The soul becomes “locked” in its ways and maniacally driven to expel all angles of truth presented. Adherence to false doctrine continues. The Truth is continually despised.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;” (Romans 1:1).
Wilful neglect or stubbornness can also be considered rebellion. Rebellion is defined as “an act of violent or open resistance to an established government or ruler.” The stubborn one is just that. They have disregarded God’s Word with a high hand. They are no longer merely ignorant but have pledged allegiance with the enemies of God to openly rebel against the Truth. This can be witnessed by their fruit. Their language condemns them. They are an evil people, twisting God’s Word ever so slightly to deceive the minds of men. They have been deceived, they have rebelled, and now their job is to deceive others and make them rebel as well. It’s a contagion.
Perdition is the ultimate treatment and destination for the one on the Devilish Descent. Perdition is defined as “a state of eternal punishment and damnation into which a sinful and unpenitent person passes after death.” This is a justifiable treatment that brings resolve to the spiritual cancerous growth. The spiritual cancer will surely die. Many meet their treatment by an untimely death. Some are given many years to escape the devilish descent only to expire in old age with a hardened heart of rebellion. They too will perish.
A few examples of the Devilish Descent are below:
The Tithe preacher/teacher: He has been corrected and explained the true reason for the tithe in the Old Testament. He has been warned of the use of such a method for acquiring funds. He has been given the Truth of God’s Word pertaining to the correct way of giving in the New Testament. He has been warned for his twisted interpretation of scriptures regarding the tithe. He has been exposed by his extortion tactics. He has been exposed by his language usage that demeans the people by threats, coercion, and false issuances of curses. He remains stubborn and rebellious and therefore he is headed for perdition.
The Trinitarian: He has been informed of the origins of the false trinity doctrine. He has been given rightly divided teachings from the Scriptures to refute all his claims of a trinity. He has been warned of adding to the Word of God. He has been strongly advised to use Biblical wording when referencing the “things” of God. He has been called out for his hypocrisy and lack of knowledge of who God is. He has been exposed for his lies, false accusations and threats against the True Ministers of God. He can no longer claim ignorance but remains stubborn and therefore he is headed for perdition.
The Flat Earther: He has graciously been led to our article on the subject. “Dispelling the Flat Earth Theory in 11 words” He remains stubborn. He can no longer claim ignorance. He is headed for perdition. (Liars go to hell-Revelation 21:8).
The Roman Catholic/Protestant Baptizer: He has been advised of the error of his way. He has been warned of the origin of “baptism in titles.” He has been pleaded with by new believers to baptized them correctly. He fails to do so. He lies about baptizing in Jesus Name and administers baptisms in titles at the last minute during immersion. He is a deceiver. He doesn’t know how one’s sins are remitted. He makes up slogans about baptism i.e, “Outward show of an inward change.” His conscience has been rebuked by the Word of God. He seeks to please his constituents rather than God. He is prideful. He resides in stubbornness and rebellion. He is headed for perdition.
As faithful ministers of the Word of God, we are obligated to speak the Truth in love. We are commanded to reprove, rebuke and exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine (2 Timothy 4:2). We seek not to gain approval by man. We know it’s not “popular” to speak the Word of God verbatim but popularity is not our goal. Denominations were created to add to and take away from the Word of God. We are not part of a denomination therefore we need not add to or take away from the Word of God. We have no man to please and win favor from. We seek not a position in a “church.” We are already seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. This is something those on the Downward Devilish Descent do not understand. They never will.
“He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.” (John 12:48).
The one who is on the Devilish Descent and nevers escapes will reach the final stage of their spiritual cancer. It will then be too late. They will enter into perdition.
What stage are you in? Ignorance? stubbornness/rebellion?
Have you escaped the Devilish Descent by coming to the Knowledge of the Truth?
May true repentance be manifest in you before it’s too late.
