Or we could say does false doctrine lead to embracing another gospel which is no gospel at all. I say no. And why do I say this? The gospel is the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes. The gospel is the very power of God. The power of God that created the universe. The power of God that raised Yeshua from the dead. False doctrine is somehow viewed more powerful than the power of God? It cannot be.
So what does cause the embracing of another gospel, which is no gospel at all? The one true gospel ceases to be preached. And how can this happen? When believers cease to walk in love and there are divisions. When believers think they are something when they are nothing. When believers think they know something, when they know nothing at all. For they know not as they ought. When believers resist the grace of God and fall from grace. And how can this happen? When they are deceived by the false accuser and betrayed by man. Beware of man! But our battle also is not with flesh and blood, but with spiritual wickedness in high places. And all things are according to the will of God. And how can this happen? When God no longer gives grace to a person: God gives him over to a reprobate (unapproving) mind. God can give grace and he can take it away. Be not presumptuous!
Then when grace ceases, the one true gospel ceases to be preached, for it can only be preached by God’s will and grace. And if there is no grace, then the gospel ceases to be preached, and all that is left is dead doctrine. The letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life. And then when the gospel is not preached, there is all manner of false doctrine. And the person’s only hope then, is that the Lord might have mercy upon them, if He wills. For there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins.
I have seen those who in letter, hold some resemblance of truth, but when the one true gospel is preached to them, they reject it. They know not the spirit they walk in. For it is the spirit of antichristos, against the Mashiach. They make their boast in some doctrine, even a doctrine such as grace, and at the same time they reject the preaching of the one true gospel. They do not rejoice when the one true gospel is preached. And the one gospel is the Mashiach, Yeshua of Nazareth, died for our sins according to the scriptures, He was buried and He rose again the third day according to the Old Testament. And they do not rejoice, and they desire no fellowship, and they are lost in their sins. “For if we walk in the light as He is in the light we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Yeshua His Son cleanseth us of all unrighteousness.”
Beloved, falling from the true grace of God, the one true gospel, leads to false doctrine. Now false doctrine can be used of men to deceive and betray other men. But if they continue in the one true gospel they will be grounded and settled and not moved away from the gospel. If they were of us, they would have continued with us, but because they did not continue with us, they were never of us. They were not of the enduring “faith to the end” of Yeshua. If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, saith Yeshua.
He who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit sayeth to the assemblies.
