God never changes and is righteous.
To deny God’s righteousness
and assert man’s righteousness is satanic (2 Thess 2:4).
To be deceived by Satan is corruption (2 Thess 2:9-10).
When the saints are deceived, the angels who helped the saints go astray so they cannot help the saints (1 Kings 22:20-23).
God turns helpful angels into deceiving spirits
and works deception upon those who do not seek the truth (Rom 1:28-32).
God gives more to the one who has
and takes from those who do not have in His wrath.
Baptists must keep the purity of their faith.
To do this: they should attend service on the Lord’s Day, do all duties of the saints (Heb 10:25),
learn from the Holy Spirit (Jn 14:26),
and hear and do the words of the Bible.
By these means they walk on the path of heaven (Jn 14:6).
If we accept deceiving spirits, we cannot turn back.
Some people are judged or destroyed in the flesh so that their spirits are saved (1 Cor 5:5).
○ Receive fullness of the Holy Spirit.
Keep your spirit by the Holy Spirit.
○ Do not be deceived and hinder deceiving spirits.
If you accept deceiving spirits, you will be judged.
○ Angels help those who seek the truth.
The Holy Spirit orders angels to always help us.
If we do not drive out deceiving spirits, we will be corrupt.
※ Let us resist the devil by the Holy Spirit and the truth,
drive out deceiving spirits
and make angels help our spirit, mind and body.
