Open Letter to Eastern New Mexico and
Texas:  you are troubling souls that you
should be helping!
You see what happens when churches do not spread enough sound
doctrine in their world for which Christ is holding them responsible.  What
you have is "itching ears" teaching, preaching, and prophesy like on the
Light of the Southwest or the "GLC", or whatever they chose to call
themselves.  Surely you did not forget that God is holding you
responsibiity for the territory of the world around you to reach, teach, win,
and develop for Christ--a great commission from Christ that has lessed
no way in the two thousand years since he gave it in spite of all those
denominational and local church activities that you are bogged down with
in order to keep your mind off the real work of Christ.  We thought it was
bad when the Mormons
{with their doctrines from 4 extra Bibles}, Jehovah
witnesses
{with their extra-Biblical watchtower}, and even Roman
Catholics
{with a long history of extra-Biblical doctrines} moved into your
territory, and community churches
{with new doctrines of the "itching ears"
category}
--these are just some of the itching ears doctrines evangelized
with more fervor than Christian churches; but like in early New Testament
day churches, today and in our home territory, have come these
proselytes of Messianic Judaism and the Millennium Movement {both
expect a thousand year kingdom on earth instead of the new earth} to
"trouble those from among the Gentiles who are turning to God"
(Acts 15:19).

This quote at the last of the paragraph above is from Pastor James at the
Great Circumcision Conference in Jerusalem.  Satan never ceases to use
the same tricks that he tried in the first century, against either Christ as in
the temptation in the wilderness or against the first church as he tried
against first Gentile Christians.  The Apostles and elders at this first great
conference corrected that for us, and if you churches had been preaching
and teaching Acts as you should have, it would have at least lessened the
impact of both the Messianic Judaism and Millennium Movement.
 {You
read about how the Millennium Movement Crashes on Truth in the
newsletter of last month, and today you will read something of sound
doctrine on Messianic Judaism.)  

Anyway, here from the Word of God, is the final solution for today as then:

1.  Don't let them "trouble you with words" and "unsettle your souls" about
the Millennium Movement or Messianic Judaism, they are both unsound
doctrine.

"Since we have heard that some who went out from us have
troubled you with words, unsettling your souls, saying, 'YOU MUST
BE CIRCUMCISED AND KEEP THE LAW'--to whom we gave no
such commandment"  (Acts 15:24)

NOTE:  And by the way which Christ never gave such a
commandment, so you know what other supernatural power is in the
universe that is leading on such commandments to be circumcized
and to keep the Torah (oral and written law of Judaism).

2.  You know you supporters of these bankrupt movements are no better
than other religious organizations who put additional burdens on
Christians in order to cull some status and money from them.  At the
Great Circumcision Conference, the Apostle Peter also warned against
such burden sharing and bearing:

"Now therefore, why do you test God by putting a yoke on the neck
of the disciples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear?"  
(Acts 15:10)

IT JUST AIN'T RIGHT FOR CHRISTIANS TO HAVE THIS
ADDITONAL BURDEN OF THE LAW ON THEM EVEN WHEN IT MAY
MOMENTARILY PROVIDE THEM SOME STATUS AS "ITCHING
EARS" TEACHERS AND BELIEVERS.

Anytime you hear something new and weird, you must know it one of two
things:

1.  Either you have neglect some part, or parts, of your Bible as the Word
of God, which hopefully you are seeing about "backsliding" in the book of
Jeremiah and other misconceptions churches have built up through the
years as substitutes of doctrine for the Word of God.  Have you realized,
for example about backsliding, that it is a word and concept almost
exclusive to the book of Jeremiah
{if you have trouble with that, look it
up in a good and thorough concordance like YOUNGS OR
STRONGS}, and it is a matter of God's people falling away not from
the church of temple, that activity generally goes up during times of
backsliding and the Falling Away; but rather is a falling away of God's
active church people from God, Christ, and the Bible!  Hard to
swallow, right!}

And what is really hard to swallow is that almost all of God's people of all
the houses of God, like in Jeremiah, could be in default; still active in
religious worship services and attendance at the temple, but having
"forsaken the God of the fountain of living waters" (Jeremiah 2:13) while
"building broken cisterns that can hold no water" of much religious activity
and formality.

So bottom line sometimes something sounds like a weird and "itching
ear" Bible teaching because you have neglected the total Word, and you
have become part of the larger Falling Away movement which inevitable
happens to all churches near the end as described in 5 stages in II
Timothy 4:3,4:

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine,
but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears,
they will heap up for themselves teachers {itching ears church
members generate itching ears Bible teachers, preachers, pastors,
and evangelists}; and they will turn their ears away from the truth,
and be turned aside to fables."  (II Timothy 4:3,4)
