BEWARE OF FALSE DOCTRINES/KNOWLEDGE THAT EXALT LUCIFER AS GOD WITH GOD!
Satan said in his heart "I will be like the most High" Isaiah 14:12-14
A proper study of the holy scriptures will reveal to all that in this great controversy the whole issue is robbing God of His glory through sinning. Throughout the Holy Scriptures God has reinforced His Godaloneness through His doctrines that destroy the Satanic claim. “See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me…” (Emphasis supplied) Deuteronomy 32:39. I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me, I am the LORD and there no God beside me…I am the LORD, and there is none else. (Emphasis supplied) Isaiah 45:5,6 It is Satan that ancient serpent called the devil who sinned from the beginning and has deceived the whole earth with his doctrines. For it is he who sought to exalt himself like the most high at the beginning of this great controversy. “And there war was in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought and his angels and prevailed not…and that great dragon… He was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with in.” “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart… I will be like the most High. Revelation 12:7-9, Isaiah 14:12-14 In his temptation to man lies his esoteric doctrines that exalt him as God with God. When man receives his lies as truth they too rebel against God denying His Godaloneness. Consider Genesis 3:1-6 what you will find are the fundamental concepts that exalt Lucifer to be God with God.
Doubting the word of God is the way to knowledge. (“…yea, hath God said, ye shall not eat…?Genesis 3:2)
Immortal Soulism. (“…Ye shall not surely die” or “in dying you shall not die..” Genesis 3:4)
Self-salvation or works salvation (“…she took of the fruit” Genesis 3:6
Humans are gods with God.(“ In the day, you eat thereof your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as God” Genesis 3:5
Good and evil cohere together. (“You shall be as God knowing good and evil Genesis 3:5)
Transgression of God's Law is salvation. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food …she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat…” Genesis 3:6)
Since these are the claims of Lucifer that exalts him as God with God, God has written unto us excellent things in counsels and knowledge that we may know the certainty of the truth, that we may witness that He is God alone. Proverbs 22:20:21, Isaiah 43:10. Do consider these salient points.
Believing the truths of the plan of Salvation which are the character of Christ is necessary for salvation. Since there is one Saviour it means that God is God alone. “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall dieinyour sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall diein yoursins.” John 8:24, John 14:6
It was because of unbelief that the children failed to enter into the rest of keeping God’s seventh day Sabbath. So today, because men doubt the word of God they fail to enter into His rest. "Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:...Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief." Hebrews 4:6,11
Only YHWH God has immortality; man is mortal therefore God is God alone. “Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light ...” 1 Timothy 6:15:16 The soul dies says YHWH; it is not immortal and Satan claims that ye shall not surely die. “Behold, all souls are mine; as thesoul of the father, so also thesoul of the son is mine: thesoulthat sinneth, itshalldie.” Ezekiel 18:4 (see also verse 20)
Salvation by works profit nothing for Salvation is only by God’s grace or his mercy towards us, therefore since salvation is a gift of God, or that salvation can only be obtained from God, it means that God alone is God. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8,9
“Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, he taketh up the isles as a very little thing...all nations before him are as nothing; and they are counted to him less than nothing, and vanity. To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him? To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.” Isaiah 40:15,17,25,26. God alone created the heaven and the earth, therefore God is God alone.
The wages of sin is death, both spiritual death and death in hell fires in the future, not salvation. For there is no salvation in sin but from sin. Again, the fact that God came in the flesh to save sinners, prove that He is God alone. “Whosoever committeth sintransgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of thelaw.” 1 John 3:4 “For thewagesofsinisdeath; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23, “And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21.
This bible study shows the need for the word of God or the doctrines of Christ to protect and keep us from the doctrines of Satan that exalts him as God with God. Our only security is through the faith of Christ. We must guard the avenues of our heart and not imbibe the doctrines of Satan that will rob us of Salvation. But we must use the faith to destroy these false doctrines that exalt Lucifer as God with God, for faith is the victory that overcomes the world of delusions. May all be blessed and see the need to keep the faith always, amen.
