TAKE A STAND: DON’T ACCEPT ANOTHER GOSPEL! By: Evangelist Job ALABI

1 COR. 15:1-4, 11:
“Now I make known to you, brethren, the
gospel which I preached to you, which also
you received, in which also you stand, by
which also you are saved, if you hold fast [a]
the word which I preached to you, unless you
believed in vain.
For I delivered to you as of first importance
what I also received, that Christ died for our
sins according to the Scriptures, and that He
was buried, and that He was raised on the
third day according to the # Scriptures
…Whether then it was I or they, so we preach
and so you believed.”
LET’S ENGAGE:
1. Paul has a message-verse 1 (Good news I
preached).
2. This message has become your message
too when you believed- .verse 1 (…also you
received)
3. This message has become your conviction-
it defines your life-verse verse 1 (you also
stand).
4. This message that became your conviction
is validated as true-checked to be consistent
with the Bible- verse 2 (you hold fast or
retain).
5. This message can be traced back to its
origin-there is a source- verse 3 ( I delivered
to you… what I also received).
6. It can only be traced back to the
scriptures-verse 3-4 (according to the
scriptures- that the whole progressive truth of
the God’s written revelation).
7. The message must be the same if we are
teaching from the same source and must birth
the same result- verse 11 (Whether then it
was I or they, so we preach and so you
believed).
WHEN WE SAY WE LIVE BY THE CONVICTION
OF GOD’S WORD, IT DOES NOT INCLUDE OUR
OPINION OR PERCEPTION, IT IS PURELY
DEPENDENT ON WHAT THE SCRIPTURES
CLEARLY TEACH.
If you cannot show expressly from the
scriptures what you want lives to be built on
or what you are building your life upon, the
results you testify to are mere deceptions.
Moses cast his rod and it became a snake,
the magicians did the same. We do not
measure what is true by results but by the
revealed word of God. I heard a preacher on
Bride TV tonight say; “satan and Adam slept
with Eve to conceive Cain and Abel”, you
wonder which Bible he is reading and what
damage it will cause to his listeners as
misconception of God’s word makes their
heart crooked. Where is that in the Bible? And
see the listeners shout for joy like they found
something new. LISTEN: SATAN HAS
SUCCEEDED IF HE IS ABLE TO REPLACE GOD’S
WORD WITH HIS WORD WITHOUT YOU
KNOWING. Satan told Adam what God did not
say and Adam failed in faith because he
accepted a word strange to God’s thought-
line. Satan wants you to accept that the
disease is bigger than God and that you won’t
make it. Don’t accept anything God has not
emphasized as your portion in the Bible, it is
a strange word.
Did Paul not have signs and results? He did
but he said by the scriptures alone. So check
yourself and what motivates you…
1. What is expressly and consistently
commanded in the Bible?
2. Is it an instruction necessary for becoming
who God in Christ says you are?
3. Does it show how much of grace you need
and how much of faith generated by God’s
word alone defines your life?
4. Did Jesus command it and the Apostles
practice it?
5. It is a one time event or it is an all time
expected event like Jesus asking someone to
bathe was a one time event not a Church
doctrine?
6. Does it manifest a Holy Ghost filled life
expressed by love?
7. Does it lead you back to a kneeling
position before the cross or enthrones you
before the gathering of men?
So dear pilgrim and saint, God will not do less
than His word nor do outside of His word. The
death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ
for the world was spoken ahead of time in the
Bible, to accept contrary is to believe
satan.The beginning and the ending of all
matters is what the word defines. Shalom as
you stick with the word alone.
