The following article is a critical response to “Word of the Month” for November 2009 found at the above link.The following response is not meant to be disrespectful in any way, but it is meant to be a critical analysis of the “Word of the Month” from a purely Scriptural perspective with the hopes that members of the NAC will objectively study the Bible in depth, which will allow them to see the many irreconcilable differences between NAC doctrine and the truth of Scriptures.
Peace, Peace, When There Is No Peace
I see many parallels between what is preached in the NAC today (and in virtually all of Christianity) to what was preached by the false priests and prophets of Jeremiah’s day.The similarities are striking.
Both taught the people to commit abominations (Jer 7:10).
Both had leaders who communicated false visions and prophesies (Jer 23:25).
Both had leaders who ruled by their own authority instead of by the authority of the Law and the true Prophets as found in Scriptures (Jer 5:31).
Both are thronged with followers who are looking for justification and freedom to commit their abominations (Jer 6:15).
Both forgot the name of Yah their Sovereign Power and traded His name for God, Lord, and Baal (Jer 23:27).
Both preached a false peace when, because of their idolatry and disobedience, there is no peace (Jer 6:14).
When the NAC preaches that you will be transformed into a more peaceful person by obeying the NAC doctrine, it is teaching that you need not obey the commandments of your Creator to accomplish this.The “Word of the Month” for November 2009, for example, does not indicate that one must obey his Creator’s commandments, does not indicate that one must adhere to Yah’s standard of righteousness, but rather in beastly fashion, changes Yah’s code of ethics into its own contrived code of ethics in order to justify the rebellion against Yah by disobeying His commands.Nowhere is the peace of the Sabbath Day mentioned, for example.
Therefore, we see today that the devil has used an old formula that was used in the days of Jeremiah to deceive the people and lead them into disobedience.
The peace that is offered in the NAC is akin to the call for peace that Yehoram the king of Israel made to Yehu in 2 Kings chapter 9:22. Yehu's response is born out of the Holy Spirit, which I now echo in regards to the NAC leadership. "And it came to be, when Yehoram saw Yĕhu, that he said, “Is there peace, Yĕhu?” But he answered, “What peace, as long as the whorings of your mother Izebel and her witchcraft are so many?”"
Be assured, Christian, that if you are leading a life that is in disobedience to Yah’s commandments, then your sin will find you out.
Do not obey commandments of men.Obey only your Creator’s commandments.Do not be deceived by a false peace but rather enjoy the peace that only comes through obedience to Yah’s commandments and the faith of Yahshua Messiah.
