119. My old and new statement of faith

My old and new statement of faith

Peace and grace dear brothers, sisters and friends,

I would like to present here my new and still old statement of faith. Sorry if the grammar are not so good. I am interested to meet, face to face all of you who agree whit it.
Have a blessed time,
John Takacs

1. The Holy Scripture, the Bible, is inspired by God and it is useful for our fulfillment: 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Corinthians 4:6. Any teaching, prophecy or conduct must be verified with the Bible, but, be careful, it can be misinterpreted: 2 Peter 3:15.16; Revelation 22:18, 19.

2. Salvation from sin and death is achieved through grace, through faith:  Ephesians 2:8, 9; Tit 3:5, in Christ‘s sacrifice: Romans 3:21-36; Luke 221:41-44. Not by deeds, because then we would annul both Christ’s sacrifice and God’s grace, which is given on the grounds of the belief in this sacrifice and thus the reason of our salvation would not be the belief in Christ’s sacrifice: Galatians 5:4-6; Galatians 2:21 and also the grace would no longer be grace Romans 10:6. However, the good deeds that God has prepared for us to do, are indispensable because faith without deeds is void, dead; that is why we must show our faith through good deeds: James 2:14-20. God’s Word teaches us that the payment for sin is death and not the sinner’s eternal torment: Romans 6:23. “The lake of fire” is a great warning signal of the eternal destruction that awaits the lost ones: Revelation 20:14. This "lake" is the eternal death, the eternal destruction, as it is so clearly shown: “The lake of fire is the second death.” Universal salvation (many chances to repent in God's Kingdom for sinners) and semi-universal salvation (a new chance for sinners to repent in God's Kingdom) are not biblical teachings (Revelation 21:7,8).

3. God loves every person and He commands all the people everywhere to repent: Acts of the Apostles 17:30; Romans 2:1-16. There is no possibility of salvation once a man dies unrepentant, that is why, with true love for mankind, we must do our best talents to spread the Gospel those who are lost: Matthew 24:14; Revelation 20:11-15. What would you say about a father who, before any of his children are even born, decides that he will kill the second and the third one, no matter what they could be, good or evil? There are a lot of Christians (Augustinians and Calvinists) who think that God has decided, in this way, the faith of billions of people. Does God wish the fall or the salvation of His children? The next verse reject the Augustinian&Calvinist view of salvation: “God, our Savior, who wishes all the people to be saved and to see the truth: “1 Timothy 2:3,4. As we see, God wishes the salvation of all the people, but those who through their bad deeds reject this free grace, fall from grace and cannot be saved. That is why, when Apostle Paul writes about our predestination we must bear in mind God’s wish shown to mankind (1 Timothy 2:3,4), for all people and by what and how we can enter in this predestination of salvation, which is a predestination as a group of believers and not of individuals: Romans 9:30-33. God did not create a man more sinful than another. He has not arbitrarily decided one’s destiny, neither one’s fall, nor salvation, and this even before the individual’s birth. Through repentance everybody can receive the grace of salvation! Luke 13:1-5.

4. There is only one almighty, supreme, sovereign, eternal, immortal and unchanging God. He is one single being, one single person distinct from all: the Creator of heavens and earth, the Father who bears the name of YHWH (transl. Yahweh, Jehovah, etc.): Exodus 3:13-16. That means that it was not God who died in pains on the torture pillar (renamed crux), but it was His Son, Jesus Christ who died: John 3:16; 1 Timothy 6:16; John 20:17; Luke 23:46. Jesus Christ did not always exist, because otherwise he would be God’s “Twin Brother” and not His Son, but obviously, as God’s Son, he inherited God’s nature and this nature is also promised to us, the faithful: 2 Peter 1:4. Of course, Jesus Christ existed in heaven as a distinct person from the Father, before His coming on Earth and His birth, Jesus being the beginning of God’s Creation: Revelation 3:14; John 8:57,58; Philippians 2:5-8. In the beginning, He was created, that is, brought into existence by God and not given birth by a heavenly woman (God's heavenly wife), because God is not a man nor a woman and cannot give birth like a man, nor like a woman. It is only when He came from heaven and was born like a man that He literally was given birth by the virgin Mary. The Holy Spirit is not a distinct person from God, because then it would be God’s “Twin Brother”; it is God’s Spirit. Being created in God’s  image: Genesis 1:26, every person has a spirit, which, however, does not make him the residence of two twin people: the copy looks like the original, in the same way as God has own Spirit, which is incomparably more powerful than our spirit, taking into consideration that we are only miniatures of the original. The idea and concept of the godly “one-trinity” has been taken from the pagan philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras of Samos, via Plato, Aristotle, etc. and “dressed” in meanings from the Bible, by certain prominent Christians of neoplatonic orientation from Egypt and Cappadoccia, etc. and imposed on Christians as Bible teaching.

5. We must not believe Satan’s lie that people don’t die: Genesis 3:4, John 3:13, John 11:11-14. The man is a divine creation, God’s creation, being the result of the joining of flesh and breath or, let’s put it in another way, the joining of flesh and the spirit breathed by the Creator: Genesis 2:7. As long as the flesh and the spirit coexist, the man is a being; in biblical terms: man is a living (breathing) soul. When this union ceases to exist, the man is no longer a being, a living and breathing soul. He not live anymore, death being the opposite of life. The only hope for those who die is the resurrection: John 5:28, 29. There is no conscious or subconscious “life” or the purgatory state after death: Ecclesiastes 9:1-12. Don’t let yourselves be fooled by those who explain the biblical parables in literal terms: Matthew 13:10-15. If the man could live after his death, there would be no need for resurrection.

6. The Christians are forbidden to worship (with the meaning of God's worship) objects, images, people (either living or dead) and angels: Exodus 20:1-5; Acts of the Apostles 10:25, 26; 14:15; Revelation 19:10; 22:8, 9. They have only one God, the Father and they worship Him, only Him, as Jesus Christ, God’s Son, did and taught us to do: Luke 22:41-45; Matthew 4:10. Our worship is in Spirit and truth and ONLY through His only begotten celestial Son, our High Priest and ONLY Mediator: John 3:3-7; John 3:13-21; John 4:24; John 8:31,32; John 14:6; Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 Timothy 2:5. If a person bows down to somebody else in sign of obeisance, courtesy, gratitude, it does not necessary mean that he or she worship that person: Genesis 23:12; Luke 8:41. Christians are forbidden to kill and to revenge themselves on their enemies, whatever the reason: Matthew 5:21, 22; Matthew 5:38-48; Romans 12:17-21; James 1:19-21.

7. Before the coming back of God’s Anointed (Christ means the Anointed), there will be great sorrow and trouble on Earth, which will show that God’s kingdom and the coming of His Anointed designated as King (of the whole earth) is near, is at the door: Luke 21:25-31; Matthew 24:29-33; Revelation 6:12-17. The signs show that God's Anointed comes after the signs, and not before them. A big sing will be the coming of an anti-God New World Order (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12).

8. In prayer and in gatherings those chaotic manifestations of pagan type which dishonor God’s gathering must be avoided: Matthew 6:5-8; 1 Corinthians 14:23, 40.

9. The Old Testament Sabbath and the abstention from certain foods are not obligatory now, because these commandments have been unbound: Mark 7:14-23; Acts of the Apostles 15:1-11; for example, vegetarians are called weak; we must treat them wisely so they won’t completely lose their faith: Romans 14:1-23.

10. Our Lord Jesus Christ said that the world will not see Him, only His disciples will: John 14:19. How does this truth tone with that which says that every eye shall see Him, even those who pierced Him: Revelation 1:7? Very simple: after the big and frightening sign, which will be the last in a series (plagues, catastrophes) which will come over the unfaithful: Matthew 24:29, 30. Revelation 6:1-17. 

Repent, pray and watch! We have only one chance to enter in God's Kingdom. Let escape, and run from the wrath to come!
