WHAT IS YOUR ORIGINAL NAME?
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit, He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit, He prunes it so that it may bear more fruit.”
John 15:1-2 NASB
WHY ARE CHRIST FOLLOWERS ENTANGLING OURSELVES WITH ALL KINDS OF DEVOTIONAL BOOK DECEPTIONS?
“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 NASB
Jesus clearly stated that HE is the vine His followers are the branches. What part of this revelation you don’t understand?
The book of acts of the Apostle also recorded it clearly that the followers of Christ were first called Christian in Antioch, that was many years after Christ.
“and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. And for an entire year they met with the church and taught considerable numbers, and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch.”
Acts 11:26 NASB.
WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES THE NAME “CHRISTIAN” VALID OR BETTER THAN THE NAME “BRANCHES” TO YOU?
If you’re so addicted to devotional books, “for easier explanation” to the extent of pushing aside the Holy Spirit in you. That means you’re gradually giving away the control of your mind of CHRIST to the ones you’ve chosen as god such like John Hagee, TD Jakes, Joel Osteen, Oyedepo, Joyce Mayer, Beth Moore, Perry Stone and many other “men or women of God.”
How can you understand the constitution that guides you when you have given the hireling a power of attorney to be controlling your mind?
