Continuing In The Son And The Father

“Therefore let that abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning. If that which you have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, you also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.” – 1 John 2:24

Pastor Luis Yosefus

More than ever before in Christian history, the true gospel of Jesus Christ [Messiah] is being distorted by anti-Christ’s who have entered the church and are deceiving many. The apostle John warned that some would even deny the divinity of Jesus as the Son of God:

“Whoever denies the Son, the same has not the Father…” – 1 John 2:23

Attacks on the Trinity.

You cannot have the assurance of true saving faith unless you accept the unalterable fact that Jesus was God in the flesh. Jesus spoke of His divinity over-and-over again when He declared that “the Father [God] and I are One.”

The foundational Christian doctrine of the Trinity the mysterious triune nature of God (i.e. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit being One) has been attacked by anti-Christs almost since the inception of the church. Satan knows how vital this belief is to the faith of the New Testament believer. You cannot have the assurance of true saving faith unless you accept the unalterable fact that Jesus was God in the flesh. Jesus spoke of His divinity over-and-over again when He declared that “the Father [God] and I are One.” In fact, the religious leaders of His day found these statements of our Lord so offensive that they wanted to kill Jesus for speaking blasphemy, and making Himself equal with God. Nevertheless, Jesus spoke the truth. If the religious crowd had not been so blinded by their man-made traditions, they would have understood.

In order for us Christians to “continue in the Son and the Father”, we must remain in the original teachings of Jesus and the early apostles who taught the foundational doctrine of the Trinity. We don’t worship three Gods, as some accuse us of, but one God in three persons. Christians are monotheistic in their beliefs, just as Jews and Muslims are monotheistic. One of the differences between Christians and Jews, for instance, is that we have a better understanding of God. We believe that God in the person of Jesus Christ came down from heaven and died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. To follow preachers and churches who have abandoned this important truth of the original gospel is spiritually fatal and separates one from God.

False prophets and preachers abound.

Beware of many today who are preaching “another Jesus, and another gospel”
(2 Corinthians 11:4); they have neither the Son, nor the Father because they have not continued in the original teachings of Messiah. Instead, they are preaching a compromised version of the gospel being motivated by their desire to increase their popularity and financial support. Do not be fooled by the apparent success and size of their mega-churches and ministries, God will eventually judge these anti-Christs and their ministries will come tumbling down. True believers must remain loyal to Jesus Christ and the true gospel at all costs. Our very souls and eternal destinies depend on it.

For this reason, it is crucial that every believer study the Holy Scriptures for themselves and allow the Holy Spirit, “The Spirit of Truth”, to guide you into all truth (1 John 2:27).

  3. When Speaking of Jesus, Luke in Acts 4:12 stated “There is no other name (authority) given among men whereby we must be saved.”
    That said, a number of years ago I was talking with a young man and he asked me how I knew God was real. I told him to ask God who he was. So I told him to really know who God is, he needed to ask God to reveal himself to him. I knew that only by the Holy Spirit can anyone be drawn to the truth. But boy did I pray that other spirits did not confuse him with their lies. A couple of days later the young man came back to me and told me that God did reveal himself to him. The young man’s life straightened out and he became a Christian Counselor.
