BIBLE STUDIES

THE "OTHER" JESUS

A BRIEF SURVEY OF "THE OTHER JESUS"

1.  Is not of Jewish FLESH, and thus also is not Apostolic, and is "anti-semitic" [1Jn 2:19, 1Jn 4:3, 2Jn 1:7]

1Jn 2:19  They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 

1Jn 4:3  And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. 

2Jn 1:7  For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

Eph 2:15  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace; .


2.  Is not anchored to the historical CHRIST but to "traditions" and "myths" [2Co 11:4, Col 2:8, 2Ti 4:3 ]

2Co 11:4  For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. 

Col 2:8  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 

2Ti 4:3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 2Ti 4:4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables ("muthos", "myths"). 

3.  Is advocated by Religious Authoritarians who speak "as God" Ex Cathedra [2Ti 4:3 ]

4.  Is advocated by a clergy which is celebate [1Ti 4:1-3]

1Ti 4:1  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 1Ti 4:2  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;  1Ti 4:3  Forbidding to marry,...

5.  Who will claim Christ's "Paurousia" is found in their "Desert communities" [Mat 24:26 ]

6.  And in their "Sanctuaries" [Mat 24:26, Mat 24:28]

Mat 24:26  Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. - KJV
Mat 24:26  `If therefore they may say to you, Lo, in the wilderness he is, ye may not go forth; lo, in the inner chambers, ye may not believe; - YOUNG'S LITERAL

7.  Who will "come in Christ's name", and claim to "be him" [Luk 21:8]

Luk 21:8  And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. 

8.  Who will decieve the MAJORITY of those who call him "Lord" [Mat 7:22]

Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

15. Is connected to EGYPT [Jud 1:4-5, 2Co 11:3 ]

Jud 1:4,5  For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

2Co 11:3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Rev 16:13,14  And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world

REV.9:11 - "Apollyon" is the same with "Apollo", the god of the Heathens, " - JOHN GILL'S EXPOSITION

APOLLYON (APOLLO) - As sun-god and god of light, Apollo was also known by the epithets Aegletes (/əˈɡliːtiːz/ ə-glee-teez; Αἰγλήτης, Aiglētēs, from αἴγλη, "light of the sun"),[13] Helius (/ˈhiːliəs/ hee-lee-əs; Ἥλιος, Helios, literally "sun"),[14] Phanaeus (/fəˈniːəs/ fə-nee-əs; Φαναῖος, Phanaios, literally "giving or bringing light"), and Lyceus (/laɪˈsiːəs/ ly-see-əs; Λύκειος, Lukeios, from Proto-Greek *λύκη, "light"). The meaning of the epithet "Lyceus" later became associated Apollo's mother Leto, who was the patron goddes of Lycia (Λυκία) and who was identified with the wolf (λύκος),[15] earning him the epithets Lycegenes (/laɪˈsɛdʒəniːz/ ly-sej-ə-neez; Λυκηγενής, Lukēgenēs, literally "born of a wolf" or "born of Lycia") and Lycoctonus (/laɪˈkɒktənəs/ ly-kok-tə-nəs; Λυκοκτόνος, Lukoktonos, from λύκος, "wolf", and κτείνειν, "to kill"). As god of the sun, the Romans referred to Apollo as Sol (/ˈsɒl/ sol; literally "sun" in Latin). [13] Apollonius of Rhodes, iv. 1730; Pseudo-Apollodorus, Biblioteca, i. 9. § 26, [14] Álvaro, Jr., Santos, Allan.

QUOTE: In Rome December 25 was made popular by Pope Liberius in 354 and became the rule in the West in 435 when the first "Christ mass" was officiated by POPE SIXTUS III. This coincided with the date of a celebration by the Romans to THEIR PRIMARY GOD, THE SUN, and to Mithras, a popular Persian sun god supposedly born on the same day. The Roman Catholic writer Mario Righetti candidly ADMITS that, "to facilitate the acceptance of the faith by the pagan masses, the Church of Rome found it convenient to institute the 25th of December as the feast of the birth of Christ to divert them from the pagan feast, celebrated on the same day in HONOR of the 'INVINCABLE SUN' Mithras, the conqueror of darkness" END QUOTE - (Manual of Liturgical History, 1955, Vol. 2, p. 67). - AUTHOR 1 Professor.
