Time Travelers - Part 2
October 27, 2010 • By Ed Wrather
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Do not be carried about with various and strange doctrines. - Hebrews 13:8-9 NKJV.
But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted - you may well put up with it! - 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 NKJV.
Yesterday, I shared with you the 1928 Charlie Chaplin silent film clip that appears to show an older woman talking on a cell phone. There are many reasonable explanations for what is seen; including, that the woman is simply shielding her face from the sun with something. With our modern mindsets we immediately jump to the conclusion that it looks like a cellphone. Here is the link to the youtube video again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DF8WF3vGUn8
What if, the leaders of our country suddenly appeared on TV with someone who claimed to be a time traveler from the future? Would we believe it? What if, someone appears on the world stage claiming to be an alien from another planet with advanced technology demanding that we worship and obey them? Would we believe it, and do it? Here are a few things that some people say they believe:
>Extra Terrestrial powers are observing our planet and they will intervene in 2012 and save us from self-destruction.
>Jose Arguelles, the founder of Earth Day in 1970, “feels” that we are traveling through a Galactic Synchronization Beam which we entered in 3114 B.C. and will leave in 2012.
>Some believe that the Galactic Synchronization Beam will affect our DNA, zapping it, and we will be born again.
>Believers in the Galactic Synchronization Beam of 2012 teach that everyone goes to heaven because there is no sin, only a failure of synchronicity with your higher self.
The crazy things that people will believe; could and have filled up volumes of books. Do we believe in something just because someone "feels" we are going through some kind of beam? Do we believe in something just because someone thinks it would be great if the cosmos were to operate according to the rules that they happen to dream up?
When anyone claims they have heard some magnificent new truth from a time traveler, or an alien, or in a dream, or that they just feel this to be true - BEWARE! We do not need a new truth, or a new feeling, or a better synchronicity. We have the Word of God. Jesus says this, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled (Matthew 5:17-18).” Jesus is the Word of God become flesh (John 1:14) and He is unchanging (Hebrews 13:8).
When they tell you their lies and attempt to deceive you; open up the Word of God and share the unchanging truth. The truth of the Word of God will overcome as the Bible says in Isaiah 55:11, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” The Word of God will win the battle because, “...the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).”
We must remember that, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” His Word does not lie, it does not change, and He (The Word become flesh - John 1:14) will win the final and eternal victory.
