1Corinthians 16: 13 -14
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit* you like men, be strong.
Let all your things be done with charity.
Watch ye, Christians are to be on the lookout for false teachers in Christ. With modern-day media, it seems like we are inundated with teachers that mislead with false doctrines. Teaching people what they want to hear.
One time I was invited to a church service that had an evangelist speaking, first thing he did was ask everyone to close their eyes so that he could see who would in unbelief of his gift keep their eyes open to see if he was trying to deceive people. Needless to say, in my mind that raised a red flag and I just stared directly into his eyes.
He had some gimmicks that he used, and he kept a close eye on me, afterward, he started praying for people, so I went up for prayer and he kept skipping over me. I noticed that he was prophesying the same four prayers over everyone.
After the service I asked the Lord if he was for real and immediately the Holy Spirit showed me a vision of an usher walking by with a basket full of offerings, the envelopes were sticking out the top of the basket, I knew then that he was fake.
*The word quit comes from the Hebrew word, andrizomai which means, to act manly, followed up by being strong, and Let all your things be done with charity which means, benevolence or love.
Strong Christians observe, they trust in the Word and they are strong in love, because:
Love is Strong.
He is: Elohim Ahavah
The God Who Loves
