Declaring The WHOLE COUNCIL Of God
Act 20:26 — Act 20:27
Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.
2Ti 4:3 — 2Ti 4:4
For the time will come 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.
I had a dream early the morning of January 5th, 2016. In this dream there were 3, what I will call, teachers.
Each teacher had a line standing in front of them. The first teacher had the longest line. What he would do as people in the line would come up to him was tear a page out of the Bible and hand it to them. When first reading this one would be inclined to think that he was giving the person a word from the Bible based on what the Lord was having him say. I have done this many times. However, this was not the case, hence my quote from 2 Tim where it speaks about people gathering to themselves teachers who would tickle itching ears. In other words this teacher was telling the individual what they wanted to hear, a feel good message, and not what they needed to hear which was to live a holy life. As you might have guessed, he had the longest line standing in front of him.
The next teacher did not tear out pages from the Bible and hand them to people, instead, the people standing in line would come up and tear out the pages they wanted and walk away. It seemed that each had their own truth. This line was a little shorter than the first but nonetheless was still a long line.
The 3rd teacher held the Bible closed and would not allow anyone to pick and choose what they wanted to believe. They either took the whole Bible, representing the whole counsel of God, or they walked away with nothing. As one might guess, his line was the shortest although people did try to get him to compromise he refused. Hence my quoting Paul stating first off that he was innocent of the blood of all men. Why? Because he did not shrink away from preaching the whole counsel of God.
False teachers will be guilty of the blood of those who burn in hell because of the false doctrines they taught.
The statement by Paul that he was innocent of the blood of all men by reason of the fact that he declared the whole counsel of God to them is a frightening thought, however, this is exactly what is happening today.
