Many Christians have been deceived by a familiar spirit!
A familiar spirit has convinced them (through signs and wonders manifested in their flesh) that they are "walking in the spirit" when they obey "the voice" that tells them that it is good to work on the Sabbath Day.
"After all", the deceiver says, "Jesus' disciples plucked corn on the sabbath day to feed themselves." The delusion is so profound that they believe that the voice of a demon is the voice of The Good Shepherd. Then, they draw others into following "the voice" of familiar spirits by saying:
"Do You Hear His Yoice? You Can!" and quote this verse:
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:" John 10:27
In context, Jesus told his disciples that he is The Good Shepherd. So let us consider these words that describe the faithfulness of our good shepherd:
"The LORD is my shepherd; I SHALL NOT WANT." Psalms 23:1
If you need to work on the Sabbath, then Jesus is not your Shepherd.
JESUS IDENTIFIES HIS SHEEP
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them"
On Mount Sinai, THE VOICE OF JESUS CHRIST commanded us to rest on the Sabbath Day. His sheep hear His voice and obey Him --for: "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever." Heb 13:8
As He was teaching the sermon on the mount, Jesus warned his disciples that even though someone may say "Jesus is Lord" and manifests a "spiritual gift", these things are not proof of salvation. Rather, it is only the one who DOES THE WILL OF GOD who
will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. He said:
"Not every one who says to me, "Lord, Lord" shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who DOES THE WILL of My Father who is in heaven. On that day, MANY, will say to Me,
'Lord, Lord, did we not PROPHESY in your name, and CAST OUT DEMONS in your name, and do many MIGHTY WORKS in your name?'
And then I will declare to them, "I never KNEW you depart from Me you EVILDOERS." Matthew 7:21 RSV
Who are the "EVILDOERS"? This word comes from the Greek "Anomian", which means illegality or violation of the law and generally wickedness. The apostle John used the same word "Anomian" to give us a clear definition of what true sin is. He said: "...sin is the TRANSGRESSION OF THE LAW." 1 John 3:4 KJV
Be warned. The "counterfeit voice" has caused many Christians to question the Word of God. Like Eve, Satan has convinced them "Ye shall not surely die" if they disobey God and has given them the false idea that they shall be "as gods, knowing good and evil".
That is the spirit of error.
JESUS SAID: "MY SHEEP HEAR MY VOICE ... AND FOLLOW ME."
The Good Shepherd leads us in the paths of righteousness. Jesus spoke The Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai and the Spirit of Christ inspired the Old Testament prophets. Therefore, The Holy Spirit will never lead a person to disobey a Commandment of God.
HIS SHEEP HAVE CEASED FROM SIN
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." Matthew 16:24
"Now those who belong to Christ Jesus HAVE CRUCIFIED the flesh with its passions and desires." Galatians 5:24 NAS
"Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;" 1 Peter 4:1
Only the voice of a seducing spirit will lead people away from obeying God and trusting in the Good Shepherd to provide for their needs. It is a demonic spirit that teaches them that in certain circumstances it is good to work on the sabbath.
"For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one
point, he is guilty of all." James 2:10
