“Intellectualism” is a demonic attack on the profound simplicity of God’s word. The benefit of losing our minds to God is referenced in Proverbs 3:5-6. The literal and figurative context of Revelation 22:18-19 ought to be acknowledged specific to the entire Bible.
Within I Samuel 15:22, we learn that “…obedience is better than sacrifice…” Support for this is found in Isaiah 1:1-11. Now, if a “tree” bears the fruit of DISOBEDIENCE to the Word of God and refutes the Word while lambasting God’s people, then we–as men and women of God–must obey Matthew 10:14, which states: “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.” By doing so, we are able to maintain our focus to REALIZE Mark 16:15-19, which tells us what we ARE TO DO; what happens to those who do not embrace the Word; and what we are EMPOWERED to handle and produce.
I pray in Jesus’ (Yeshua) name that this makes sense. May the Holy God bless each of you who honestly, sincerely work for Him, in Yeshua’s name. Amen!
