The logic is simple ToO. For example Matthew
's testimony you reject. He was an apostle. John
's word you reject, And he too was an apostle. You reject whom Jesus sent so reject Jesus and thus reject who sent Jesus - God His Father.
Then there is also the testimony of Luke
you reject except what you can glean for your "while He was on earth" selective bias. Of course Mark
is treated the same.
The apostle Paul is accepted as a genuine sent one from Christ, pioneering the way into the experience of the resurrection Son of God. Of course Paul's teaching which he both received directly from the exalted Christ AND from the apostles who went before him, you reject.
So we can't take lessons from you trying to enlighten us about the Word. You intend to exterminate the Word and substitute your own secretive anti-theism.
If I point out for your own good that this is the behavior of a "wolf in sheep's clothing"
or a "false prophet"
you'll just hear that as an ad hominem attack. Rather it is a serious wake up call to you and to those whom your teaching seeks to dupe.
Most seem oblivious to many of the ways that Jesus used that metaphor in the gospel He preached while He walked the Earth.
whom you reject because he was SENT by Christ, said in Revelation that Christ will return with His name as "the Word of God" (Rev. 19:11-13)
. It is a glorious vindication in total we expect in His second coming.
" And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sits on it called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. (v.11)
And His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems, And He has a name written which no one knows but Himself. (v.12)
And He is clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and His name is called the Word of God. (v.13)
Yes, Christ will return for absolute and total universal vindication. Every word He spoke will be vindicated. He truly is coming as "the Word of God"
The blood upon His garment in this scene is that of His enemies. As "the Word of God"
He will have to "war"
against those who hate God and God's SPEAKING. His waring will be "in righteousness"
and His judging will also be "in righteousness"
Are you ready for this? You are not if you are twisting and rejecting His words behind humanistic euphemisms like "while He walked on earth" and opposing the teaching of His apostles.
You appear oblivious to the degree you have established yourself as an enemy of the Word of God. You should ask for mercy and re-consider your ways. Jesus is "faithful and true"
. Stop fighting against Him.
And His eyes are a flame of fire
it says. You may have encouraged yourself with impressing some weak Christian here or there. But God sees right through your schemes to oppose Christ. His eyes through you are like a flame of fire. It be better to have those eyes be of love and redemption.
