BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and idle babblings, (empty chatter) for they will increase to more ungodliness. II Timothy 2:15,16
The most powerful entity in the world has been defeated by the devil because they are not rooted and grounded in the word and do not know the will of God for their lives nor their existence. There are thousands of denominations, sects, cults and churches, all divided by what should bring them together, the word of the living God!
United we stand and divided we fall is the reason for our defeat, being greatly weakened because of a lack of sound biblical doctrine, able to dispel the false and deadly teachings and traditions of deceived men and false prophets. Jesus set the pattern by the discipleship of His followers, teaching them God's will for them and His kingdom come to earth. The apostles were sent out to establish a kingdom and not a denomination, replicating what Jesus taught them until the devil came and divided, fragmented and deceived all who weren't grounded in truth and resurrected the old dead, man centered, ritualistic religion that Jesus did away with on the cross.
In order to restore that which has been stolen from us, we must revert back to the truth of God's word and His will for the Kingdom of God on earth. We must become disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ and not just church members chained to a pew and the traditions of deceived men and preachers. Jesus said that the truth would set you free and that you would be free indeed!
Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come (and now is) when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. II Timothy 4:2-4
