Jeremiah 14:14 "Then the LORD said unto me: The prophets prophesy lies in my name, I sent them not; neither have
I commanded them, neither spake unto them. They prophesy unto you a false vision,
divination, a thing of nought and the deceit of their heart"
False teachers bring a false vision from Acts
acts 8:26-39 "26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south
unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.27 And he arose and went: and behold, a man of Ethiopia,
an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to
Jerusalem for to worship,28 Was returning and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.29 Then the Spirit said unto
Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.30 And Philip ran thither to, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and
said, Understandest thou what thou readest?31 And he said: How can I, except some man guide me? And he desired Philip that
he come up and sit with him.32 The place of the scripture which he read was this: He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away and
who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.34 And the eunuch answered Philip and said, I pray
thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the
same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.36 And as they went on way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said,
See, water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And
he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they
went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.39 And when they were come up out of the water,
the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing"
God will reveal Jesus Christ to His chosen people in Isaiah 53.
Isaiah 53 "1 Who hath believed our
report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant and as a root out
of a dry ground. He hath no form nor comeliness and when we shall see him, no beauty that we desire him.3 He is despised and
rejected of men; a man of sorrows acquainted with grief and we hid faces from him; he was despised and we esteemed him not.4
Surely he hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted.5 But
he wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace upon him and with his stripes
we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way and the LORD hath laid on him
the iniquity of us all.7 He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth. He is brought as a lamb to the
slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.8 He was taken from prison and from judgment
and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living; for the transgression of my people
was he stricken.9 And he made his grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither
deceit in his mouth.10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering
for sin, he shall see seed; he shall prolong days and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.11 He shall see of
the travail of his soul, shall be satisfied. By his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their
iniquities.12 Therefore will I divide him with the great and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured
out his soul unto death, he was numbered with the transgressors, he bare the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors"
false prophets brought false visions in the Old Testament; it is the same today: 2 Peter 2:1-3 "1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought
them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way
of truth shall be evil spoken of.3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment
now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not"
From Acts 8:26-39 false teachers
teach physical water baptism because they are blind; therefore cannot see the Lord Jesus Christ is the water. They say
that the eunuch saw physical water (verse 36) but that is a false vision, because the Scriptures testify of The Lord Jesus
John 5:39 " Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which
testify of me"
John 15:26 "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will
send unto you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify
Acts 8:27-28 "27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority
under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,28
Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet"
It says that the eunuch
was reading the book Esaias or Isaiah, the Scripture.
Acts 8:32-33 "32 The place of the scripture which he
read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:33
In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth"
This Scripture is found in Isaiah 53.
Acts 8:34 "And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of
whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?"
The eunuch still blind, cannot see
nor understand of whom the Scripture is talking about; but listen to verse 35 " Then Philip opened his mouth, and began
at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus"
I like to declare that my soul was filled or satisfied
when I saw the Lord Jesus Christ in Isaiah 53; I saw Him as the Lamb of God dying for my sins. The eunuch did not see
physical water, but Christ as the sacrificial Lamb.
Acts 8:36 "And as they went on way, they came unto a certain
water: and the eunuch said, See, water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
"As they went on way"
= they are reading the Scriptures.
Proverbs 9:6 "Forsake the foolish, and live; and
go in the way of understanding"
9:7 "Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works"
30:21 "And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand,
and when ye turn to the left"
"they came unto certain water" = the Truth of the Word.
33:4 "For the word of the LORD right; and all his works in truth"
"the eunuch said;
see, water" = The Lord Jesus Christ is revealed unto him.
Isaiah 53:1 "Who hath believed
our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?
"what doth hinder me to be baptized?" =
The eunuch yearns to be baptized: which is "assurance of Salvation" that, can only come through the baptism of the
Isaiah 32:17 "And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of
righteousness quietness and assurance for ever"
Righteousness = the Lord Jesus Christ
1:13-14 "13 In whom ye also, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after
that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption
of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory"
God's chosen people are baptized
in Christ when we heard the word of truth, the gospel of our Salvation.
This is what happened to
me when I saw the Lord Jesus Christ in Isaiah 53: Matthew 5:6 " Blessed they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled"
I WAS FILLED! And I am still filled. The Lord Jesus Christ
is the Righteousness of God and my Righteousness. I understand that only God's elect/chosen people will see the Lord Jesus
Christ with spiritual eyes.
John 6:39-40 "39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all
which he hath given me I lose nothing, but raise it up again at the last day.40 And this is the will of him that sent me,
that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day"
The seeing in verse 40 is spiritual; in order for anyone to see Christ as the Water, he/she must have spiritual eyes, and
this is in God's hand.
Proverbs 20:12 "The hearing ear, and the seeing
eye, the LORD hath made even both of them"
Isaiah 54:17 " No weapon
that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This the
heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness of me, saith the LORD"
False teachers say that the true believer must go in the physical water and if I do not do it, I am not a child of
God. With this teaching they deny the work of Christ is sufficient for the salvation of the soul and they make people feel
good they are obedient to God's commandments when they do physical works; so Salvation is Christ plus something they
do. This is a deceit of their hearts. False teachers do not have water for God's poor chosen people, but the Lord has promised
He will provide for His people.
Isaiah 41:17-20 "17 The poor and needy seek water, and none, their tongue
faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.18 I will open rivers in high places,
and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.19
I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the
fir tree, the pine, and the box tree together:20 That they see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the
hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it"
