There is no way that two contradictory claims can both be true. This happens often while sharing the truths of the Holy Spirit with christians—competing doctrines wherein both cannot be true, so one has to be false, or they’re both false.
Some common ones look like these:
A) water baptism OR B) baptism of the Holy Spirit
A) good Friday and easter OR B) Passover and Firstfruits
A) salvation by decision OR B) salvation by confirmation of the Spirit
A) jesus OR B) Yahoshua
A) “church” OR B) bride
A) SUNday (first day) OR B) Sabbath (seventh day)
A) christian OR B) believer
You see, with each of these, they cannot both be true. Oh, I know, it’s quite common in christianity for folks to think that differences of opinion are acceptable, and that each person has to determine how he will believe. They see such differences as acceptable, as long as “we agree on the important stuff.” But, who is it that decides what is “important”?
And, in each of the items in the list above, the “B” option is true, while the “A” option is the common belief taught by christianity, which is a counterfeit of the true faith.
The truths of the Holy Spirit ALWAYS align perfectly with ALL of scripture (in its original languages and contexts), AND with ALL of the Father’s traditions—the traditions that the apostle Paul taught to the Gentile converts, telling them to “stand fast and keep the traditions” he had taught them (1 Corinthians 11:2, 2 Thessalonians 2:15).
Those traditions include the Sabbaths (weekly and feasts), the wedding traditions, and the temple ordinances and practices. Each of these are physical foreshadows of future revealed spiritual real substances. They provide physical details for us to gain understanding of spiritual truths. As Paul said in Colossians 2:17 about the Sabbaths, they are shadows of things that ARE TO COME. The traditions are not only of Messiah, they also reveal the prophetic calendar. Every major prophetic event will occur on one of the Father’s Sabbaths.
Christianity abolished the traditions because of sheer hatred of the Jews. In so doing, it eliminated an important compass of discernment. Without having an understanding of the traditions, through which the scriptures were written, and were understood by those to whom the scriptures were first given, those who adhere to christianity cannot understand the true meanings of many scriptures. It is like trying to understand algebra and geometry without ever learning addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division.
When confronted with the truths of the Holy Spirit, so many christians will fight, and fight, and fight, to prove that what they believe is the truth. But, those whose hearts and minds have been opened by the Holy Spirit to see how the Father’s traditions are the very foundations of the faith, and understand how they teach of Messiah, show the true path to salvation, and reveal the coming things, are often accused of being in a “cult,” or being misled by false teachers.
I often tell folks who reject the truths of the Holy Spirit due to their christian beliefs that, because I was a formally-educated christian for five decades, I fully understand their christianity, and I also understand the truths the Holy Spirit has taught me. I can see the two distinct belief systems, and how they contradict each other.
Christians understand their christianity only, but, until they understand the Holy Spirit’s truths, they do not understand both sides. They cling to a counterfeit, but have never actually comprehended the genuine truths. They know only what they believe—they don’t know that what they don’t know even exists. And, that was the ultimate goal of the counterfeit.
Christians often get angry when their beliefs are shown to be false. Often, they have no interest in actually researching the facts, and they rely ONLY on their own perceptions and understandings.
There is no way to research the true doctrines of the faith, which are fully supported by the traditions, both openly and honestly, and genuinely continue to believe the counterfeits that are peddled by christianity—unless 2 Thessalonians 2:11 is at work in a person’s heart and mind.
So, when one stands for the truths of the Holy Spirit, and the other stands for what is taught by christianity, and their positions are wholly contrary, either one is right and the other is wrong, or they’re both wrong. They cannot both be right.
If one’s beliefs align with all of scripture and all of the Father’s traditions, then his beliefs are of the Holy Spirit. If one argues that his beliefs are true, but he is ignorant of the Father’s traditions, then the argument eventually becomes futile, for it is similar to debating the color of the sky with a blind man.
