Knowing doctrine and understanding the Greek and Hebrew origins of every word and concept does not equal a relationship with the most high God. Many people confuse their intellect of religious doctrine with experience with God the Father. There are millions of people all over the world who have experienced God through our savior Jesus Christ and don’t know anything about the Greek and Hebrew origins or translations of the Bible. There are also millions of people who know the origins and history of all the translations from Hebrew to Greek and say Jesus never existed. Obsession with doctrine can lead to chaos, confusion and lead people far away from our Heavenly Father.
One perfect example of this is the emphasis that people put on Jesus or Yeshua. There are outrageous claims that you are not even worshipping the Messiah if you call Him Jesus. Yet this is an accusation only from man, influenced by the author of confusion himself, the Devil. At first glance its makes sense that we would do whatever we can to make sure we only address our Savior by one name because of verses in the Bible like Philippians 2:10 that states: at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, or Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which is in Matthew 1:23. Clearly we see that authority has been given to our Messiah that is accessed through His name. But our Lord Jesus makes it very clear in Matthew 7: 21-23 that we can say His name all we want and even perform miracles and cast out devils and still not know Him. Jesus tells us in John 14:16 that no one gets through the father except through Him. It is man that places limitations on our Messiah as if He doesn’t understand the person that is praying unless they say Yeshua or Jesus only. He did not place that stipulation on us. You will not see in His word that if you get my name wrong then I will ignore you or you are damned to hell.
In the spiritual realm our intent is tangible. Our Lord Jesus Christ knows who is calling out to Him in truth and spirit based on what is in our hearts. He has many names, The risen one, Messiah, Savior, Jesus, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Yesuha all of which He will respond to if the one praying is truly seeking Him in truth and spirit.
Another skillfully crafted deception is that which lies in Christianity itself. Christ was not a Christian nor was He the founder. Christianity was used to manipulate, intimidate, and control people in societies all over the globe for centuries. There are many establishments or churches all over the world where pastors are molesting children, stealing money and have absolutely no interest or belief in Jesus. This however does not negate the other establishments that are operating in the power that God has given man through the Holy Spirit and are leading souls to Christ because they truly believe in Jesus. The complexity that surrounds Christianity and all these different denominations that don’t even believe in the same basic principles is orchestrated by king of confusion himself, the Devil. Just because you call yourself a Christian does not mean you believe in Christ and if you don’t call yourself a Christian doesn’t mean you don’t. It is the Devil himself that has twisted the way to God. Jesus makes it very easy. It is through me and only me. Those who do not agree with this are not followers of the Messiah whether they call themselves Christians or not.
The way to our Father is not through doctrine but through Yeshua. The way to our Messiah is through our faith. If we believe in Him we will not perish but have everlasting life – John 3:16. The words man has created will never fully be able to capture the essence of our Savior. Perhaps this is why the Holy Spirit gave man the gift of tongues. None the less Jesus put it plainly, But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you, my sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me – John 10:27
