Enemies Of The Cross Of Christ

Updated: Jan 10




Focus: Philippians 3:18-19 - KJV

18. For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: 19. Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)

 

2 Corinthians 11:5-15

 

In simple terms, if the works of the fathers truly represented the person of God, and afford man salvation with clear access to the throne of God whose eyes would not behold iniquity, there would not have been a need for Jesus Christ to come in the flesh. For what would have been the necessity of His coming? What would His coming have corrected? It is true that Jesus came to die for the sin of man. It is also true that the traditions of the fathers were not sufficient to take away the sin, and therefore, He showed man the way to access the father and remain alive before Him forever. If after all He did, some now present themselves as apostles of God making a mess of His sacrifice to turn men to look back and rely on the traditions of the fathers, such men are enemies of the cross. They work for their god which is their belly and they glory in their shame, not knowing that people are observing their ignorance and unfortunate prescriptions. It is indeed, unfortunate to proclaim teachings that are contrary to the preference of Christ as the way to the father.

 

Beloved, all that have been foretold are coming to pass. Let us beware of those who point us away from the cross of Christ to suggest that some other characters were the Lord’s doyen, also. For all intents and purposes, Moses and Elijah appeared at the transfiguration for a purpose that is lost on many. Moses, as the purveyor of the law and Elijah as a chief prophet, appeared to Jesus before witnesses to approve of the Lordship of Jesus for the witnesses to see; and the Lord Himself spoke to seal the affirmation by declaring Jesus, not Moses nor Elijah, as His beloved son in whom He is well pleased. Not well pleased in Moses because of course, like He declared to Moses himself, he dishonored God before the Israelites, and not in Elijah because despite his errors, he had the effrontery to say to the father that he was resigning from his assignment. None of these did Christ whereof, He is the beloved and well pleasing Son of God. He is the only one of the three who the enemy did not find baggage of wickedness in. Let us therefore be particular about seeking the truth to hold on to and not fables.

 

No matter what the enemy does, none of us shall end up with the devil in the name of Jesus. On Christ the solid rock we stand and therefore by the power of the Holy Spirit we shall keep standing for Jesus to the very end, in Jesus’ name. May the Lord touch the hearts of the deceived who have been turned to the enemies of the cross whom the Master called us all to defend, and make them see the light to return to the side of God, in Jesus’ name. May the Lord take away the effects of the deception of the enemies of the cross from the hearts of men in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

 

SOLUTION: Jesus Christ alone is the way that leads to the father. There is no other way to follow. There is a way that seems right to man, the end of it is destruction. To avoid destruction, please stick with Christ alone.
