Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

A DIFFERENT SPIRIT Which You Have Not Received. (2 Cor. 11:3 – 4)


The second warning of 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 is a DIFFERENT SPIRIT.

2 Corinthians 11:3 – 4, But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be lead astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
For if one comes and preaches ANOTHER JESUS whom we have NOT preached, or you receive a DIFFERENT SPIRIT which you have NOT received, or a DIFFERENT GOSPEL which you have NOT accepted, you bear this beautifully.

What is a DIFFERENT SPIRIT which you have not received ?
The Scriptures said that GOD is (the) Spirit (John 4:24), therefore a DIFFERENT SPIRIT is an opposing spirit to God, another spirit, a spirit who claims to be 'GOD' and exalts himself above the Most High God (Isaiah 14:13 – 14).

The Scriptures say in 2 Corinthians 3:17 that the LORD Jesus Christ IS the SPIRIT.
And any SPIRIT that does NOT confess JESUS Christ is the antichrist (1 John 4:3).
In other words, anyone who does NOT confess or agree that the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the SPIRIT of (John 4:24) who has clothed Himself in flesh and walked among us (Immanuel) is the antichrist, the one who does NOT acknowledge JESUS Christ as coming in the flesh, is the deceiver and the antichrist (2 John 1:7).

But every SPIRIT that CONFESSES JESUS CHRIST has come in the flesh is from God (1 John 4:2). In other words, any man or woman that says and teaches that the LORD God Jesus Christ has appeared in a body (flesh), is speaking by the Spirit of God (1 Timothy 3:16).

This is how we know whether you have received the Spirit which is from God or the spirit which is NOT from God.
For the Spirit which is from God confesses and preaches the LORD JESUS Christ and magnifies
only Him (John 15:26), and ONLY that Spirit will testify about the LORD Jesus Christ (John 15:26 - 27).

And anyone who has NOT received the Spirit which is from God does NOT belong to God (Romans 8:9).
And anyone who believes and preaches a god called Jehovah, Allah, Yahweh, Krishna, Eyeh Asher Ehyeh or any other name is speaking by the spirit and the god of this world (2 Cor. 4:4).


Have you judged yourself rightly ?
Which spirit did you receive ?
By which SPIRIT do you speak ?

Another 'JESUS' Whom We Have Not Preached. (2 Cor, 11:3 - 4)

What is ANOTHER Jesus ? Or WHO is that OTHER Jesus ?
2 Corinthians 11:3 – 4, But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be lead astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
For if one comes and preaches ANOTHER JESUS whom we have NOT preached, or you receive a DIFFERENT SPIRIT which you have NOT received, or a DIFFERENT GOSPEL which you have NOT accepted, you bear this beautifully.

Here in that passage we can see that there are TWO JESUS.
Although we know that there are many men who are called by the name Jesus, in the Bible there are only TWO Jesus, one true the other or others are false.

The TRUE JESUS is the Lord Jesus Christ from Nazareth who is called the Christ.
This Jesus is the LORD meaning GOD, He is the creator of heaven and earth and everything in it and nothing came into being apart from Him, everything was made by and for Him (John 1:3 – 10 and Col. 1:15 - 20). He alone is the eternal God who is Spirit (John 4:24 and 2 cor. 3:17) and caused Himself to be born into His own creation through the virgin Mary (Mat. 1:21 – 25) (Immanuel God with us) or (God clothed in flesh, veiled the incarnate Deity), or God appeared in a body (1 Tim. 3:16) and that God who appeared in a body is the LORD JESUS CHRIST and beside the Lord Jesus is NO OTHER (Isa. 43:10 - 12).

This JESUS of Nazareth who is called the Christ, He IS the Father (John 10:30 and 14:9), and He also IS the SON (Isa. 9:6), and He also IS the Spirit (2 Cor. 3:17).
This JESUS which I preach IS the true God and eternal life (1 John 5:20).

If you do NOT peach that 'JESUS', then you preach ANOTHER JESUS.

The OTHER JESUS is the false Jesus of 2 Corinthians 11:4, whom WE have NOT preached!
This Jesus is NOT the Lord God Almighty, he is only a son of a god called Jehovah or Yahweh etc.
This Jesus is a mere man doing the will of an unknowable god called Jehovah or Yahweh.
This Jesus is NOT the God of the Old Testament and the New Testament.
It is this unknowable god who actually saves people THROUGH a man called Jesus.
Also it is this god called Jehovah or Yahweh who created everything THROUGH a man Jesus.
And this mere man Jesus can do NOTHING by himself unless this god called Jehovah or Yahweh tells him what to do or say etc.

Now, this is the the OTHER JESUS whom WE have NOT preached (2 Cor. 11:4).
But all Christian cults including Catholics and most Christian denominations preach this JESUS whom WE do NOT preach.
And for this reason most Churches and denominations and individuals are dead because they do not judge the body rightly.

To the Lord Jesus Christ alone be all glory and honor and power and praise forever and ever.



Which Jesus do YOU preach ?
