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 ?

OK, here's a challenge. If you are a trinitarian, or if you believe that God is more than ONE entity, then please tell me.

1#. Is the Holy Spirit another person or entity to the Lord Jesus Christ ?
2#. Is the Holy Spirit another person or entity to the Father ?
3#. How do you pray, TO the Father TROUGH the Lord Jesus Christ BY the third person of God the Holy Spirit, TO God ? Or how ? And to which God ?

Please enlighten me, if you think that I am in darkness.

You keep hunting around the bush, but you never get the fruit. Is that what you want to hear?

No my friend, I don't hunt around the bush, I am always direct to the point as much as possible.

Point 1#. is a direct question which needs a direct answer, 'Is the Holy Spirit another person or entity to the Lord Jesus Christ ?'

And the same is point 2#. 'Is the Holy Spirit another person or entity to the Father ?'

And point 3#. 'How do you pray, TO the Father TROUGH the Lord Jesus Christ BY the third person of God the Holy Spirit, TO God ? Or how ? And to which God ?'
Well my friend, I can't be more direct than that :-)

I think that YOU and anyone else who reads that comment needs to answer those questions in order to be saved.
Remember, Jesus said, 'If you do not know that I am He (capital 'H'), you will die in your sins' (John 4:24). Therefore you need to make sure that you know and understand and believe the right answer to those questions.

OK, if those questions are to difficult for anyone to answer, then please tell me, do you believe that the Holy Spirit is the Lord God the Almighty the creator of heaven and earth according to John 4:24 and Genesis 1:2 ?

Since the word "Holy Spirit" is a TITLE and NOT a name, therefore WHO is the one who holds that title "Holy Spirit" and what is His Name according to 2 Corinthians 3:17 ?

Well, I consider that to be milk of the Word and NOT the meat.
Also, I am making a bold statement and say that anyone who fails to know and understand the doctrine GOD, does NOT and cannot know God.
And remember, the vengeance of God is on ALL those who do NOT know God (2 Thessalonians 1:8).

Just ask yourself, do the Muslims know God ?
What about the Jehovah Witnesses, do they know God ?
What about the Christians who believe that God is THREE persons, do they know God ?
Well, NOT to mention the rest :-(

A DIFFERENT SPIRIT !
If the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth 'IS' the Holy Spirit as the Scriptures said (2 Cor. 3:17), then any OTHER spirit is an opposing spirit the devil.
Therefore it is reasonable to say that everyone who says that the Holy Spirit is another person or entity other than Jesus Christ is speaking by a different spirit, which is the devil.

All trinitarians believe and say that the 'Holy Spirit' is NOT the Lord Jesus Christ, but he is the THIRD person (entity) of a so called 'GOD', therefore they have RECEIVED another spirit which is NOT from God. A spirit which is from the devil, a spirit which opposes the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore is antichrist (1 John 4:3).

No one can say that Jesus is LORD (meaning God), except by the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 12:3).

Paul, I hope that one day you'll recognize that your arrogance and hatred have but one source and that is Satan. God is not the author of such behavior. I will continue to pray for you. I hope to one day see your repentance and submission untol the one and only God through the blood of Y'shua, who died for you. Again, I hope and continue to pray for the salvation of your soul.

Hi Keith, arrogance and hatred :-o
Hmmm, maybe arrogance ? but hatred :-( I don't think so my friend.
Remember, I also have to give to my Lord an account of every careless word I speak (Matthew 12:36).
And yes, repentance and submission are very close friends of mine :-)
Without repentance is NO salvation, and for that reason I preach repentance for ALL men, and of course believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and submission to Him alone.

You said, 'the one and only God through the blood of Y'shua,'.

The one and only God! tell me, who is that ?
You may say that the one and only God is Yahweh or Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh, but that is nowhere mentioned in the Bible the Scriptures. No Keith, absolutely nowhere.

But I say that the one and only God IS the Lord Jesus Christ (Jude 1:25).
And please read Isaiah 45:22, "Turn to Me and be SAVED, all the ends of the earth; For I am GOD, and there is NO OTHER" ! well Keith, it can't be more clear than that.

Maybe I am arrogant, but I can show you numerous passages from the Old Testament and the New Testament that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Lord God Almighty the creator of heaven and earth and everything in it.

Because I'm asking you to repent from believing in a false god called Yahweh and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ and be saved, that does not mean that I hate you. How can I say that I love God and hate my fellow brother ? May that never be !
If I would hate my fellow brother, I would be equal to a murderer (1 John 3:15), and you know that NO murderer has eternal life, therefore stop accusing me of hatred.

To love a brother is to tell him the truth.
To hate a brother is to encourage him on the way to his destruction.
Haven't you read that faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy ?

Yes I thought that you or any trinitarian are not able to tell me who the ONE and ONLY God is.

The Scriptures said that NO ONE can say that the Lord Jesus Christ is the ONE and ONLY God, except he would speak by the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 12:3).

Anyone who is speaking by the spirit of this world WILL say that Jehovah, or Yahweh or Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh, or Allah, Krishna or whoever else is the ONE and ONLY God.
Except the trinitarians, they claim that THREE persons or entities together are the ONE and ONLY God. Well, that is an oxymoron at best !

Will they ever pause and think ?
From most pulpits in Christian Churches and on numerous blog spots are those LIES and deceptions preached.

Tell me, by what spirit do YOU think that they are speaking ?
Is that by the Spirit of God as according to 1 Corinthians 12:3 ?
