Galatians 1:8-9; Ephesians 4:1-4
As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
The Church in the wilderness under Moses’ leadership ate “the same spiritual meat.” The equivalent of spiritual meat in the New Testament Church is the Word of God. Confusion arises when individuals smuggle their own interpretations of the Word of God into churches. Such confused persons challenge the position of the church on doctrine and practices and seek to draw a following after themselves.
The apostle Paul warned the Galatians against the infiltration of the church by people who had different doctrines (Galatians 1:8-9). The Bible warns us against receiving those who carry strange doctrines into our homes. It warns that if we receive such people we are partakers of their sins (2 John 1:10-11).
The Israelites who followed Moses drank the water from the same spiritual Rock that followed them (1 Corinthians 10:4). Members of a solid church don’t feed on the Word of God from suspicious sources. They don’t run about town in search of a word from the Lord and spiritual ministration. They believe in the grace of God on their church and depend on it for spiritual edification.
1. Pray that the light of the Word will expose people who are smuggling false doctrines into the Body of Christ.
2. Pray also for yourself that you will have the zeal to always dig deeper into the Word of God.
