In 2COR. 11:4, the Apostle Paul spoke of someone coming preaching another Yahshua. "For if he that cometh preacheth another Yahshua, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit…or another gospel…" Then in verses 13?15, he says that those who bring this kind of message are false apostles, deceitful workers, Satan's ministers who are palming themselves off as ministers of righteousness.
Do you know anybody who fits this description? What about nominal Christians? Consider the following:
Their Savior is Jesus Christ. The name "Jesus" is impossible, because there is not now, nor has there ever been, a "J" or a "J" sound in either the Hebrew or the Greek languages. The REAL Savior is Yahshua the Messiah.
Acts 4:12 "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
Their Jesus is Lord of Sunday, the first day of the week. The REAL Yahshua, on the other hand, is, to quote Him from Mark 2:28, KJV, "…Lord also of the _abbath."
Their Jesus did away with the law ? the Ten Commandments. The REAL Yahshua said He came to fulfill the law, Mat 5:17?19. See also 1 John 2:3?4; 1 John 3:4; Rev. 14:12, etc.
Their Jesus died "Good Friday" afternoon, and rose Easter Sunday morning ? just 36 hours later ? only a day and a half. The REAL Yahshua said that He would be in the heart of the earth for exactly three days AND three nights, and that this was the only sign He would leave that He is the Messiah. Matthew 12:38?40.
Their Jesus is coming to whisk them off to heaven in something called a "rapture." The REAL Yahshua is returning to planet Earth to set up a 1,000?year reign, called the Kingdom of Yahweh. Mark 1:14; Rev. 3:21; Rev. 5:10; and Rev. 20:6, etc.
There are other contrasts, of course, but these are probably the most notorious ones. Sad but true, they really do preach a different Savior than the one we find in the Bible. ***
