BELIEF IN END TIME KNOWLEDGE
IS ETERNAL LIFE INHERENT


 

End time knowledge is a different understanding of things we have learned through Mr. Armstrong. Also it is new knowledge restored, which has been lost since the time of the disciples. The knowledge does not make what Mr. Armstrong taught wrong.  That understanding was correct for that era of the church.  Now the end time era will grow in grace and knowledge and God will give new understanding to some subjects and new knowledge to many subjects.
To have eternal life we must believe, accept, obey and love the new knowledge which only God can reveal to His church.

 

1Ti 2:4  who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

 

2Th 2:10  and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

 

Act 13:48  Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of the Lord. And as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.

 

Mat 16:13  When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, "Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?"

Mat 16:14  So they said, "Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets."

Mat 16:15  He said to them, "But who do you say that I am?"

Mat 16:16  Simon Peter answered and said, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

Mat 16:17  Jesus answered and said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.

Mat 16:18  And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

Mat 16:19  And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

 

Receiving the new knowledge of eternal life is a parallel to the spies searching out the promised land.  Ten of the 12 spies, brought back an evil report of the promised land, they could only see the giants and problems associated with entering into the promised land.  Joshua and Caleb were very different they wanted the promised land.

 

Today is no different, the knowledge is different it will be hard to move away from the old teachings and old beliefs, but we must have courage and strength to step out and accept the new knowledge, if we believe God and trust in Him, He will show us to the path of truth.

 

We must have the attitudes of Joshua and Caleb if we are to inherit eternal life.
