The religious among us would tell us that we “must accept” everything “Paul” says as “the Word of God”.

#1. “Paul” is not God. “Paul” has no power to claim “infallibility” in letters he writes claiming to be “an apostle” anymore than any of us as saints today can claim “infallibility” in letters we write. Especially in writing “instructions” to other believers.  Because Jesus Christ strictly forbade us from ruling over other believers and exercising dominion over them; or exercising authority upon other believers as do the Gentiles.

In other words, no one who is born again as a disciple of Jesus Christ has any authority “from God” to tell other believers what to do as “an overseer” type boss; and/or to claim he is an “authority figure sent from God” who everyone must “submit to”; and/or tell us we must believe everything he says is “the Word of God”.  

According to Jesus Christ, “Paul” can claim no authority from Jesus to write us letters by which he exercises dominion over us and exercises authority upon us.  Meaning, “Paul” cannot claim to us that his letters have “authority from God” and “we have to do what he says” in his letters.  “Paul” cannot claim that “he has heard from God” and now we all must take everything he says as “the Word of God” in his letters because “Paul” is set in authority over us “by God”.

Matthew 20:21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom. 22 But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able. 23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. 25 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. 26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; 27 and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: 28 even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Also, Jesus warned of false Christs and false prophets. “Paul” was blinded on the Road to Assyria [Damascus is the capitol city of Assyria].  Scripture tells us that Assyria is the site of the antichrist. Assyria is named as the “seat of power” of LUCIFER in Isaiah 14. So, we have a man claiming to be an apostle who was struck blind by a spectre on the “Antichrist Road To Assyria”.

“Paul” claims that a “Jesus” struck him blind “on The Road To Assyria”.  The real Jesus gives sight to the blind. Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry specifically stated that John the Baptist and all others are to know that He is the True Messiah come:  because the blind see through HIS ministry.  

Matthew 11:Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, and said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: the blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

The Spirit of the Lord upon Jesus does not strike men blind.  Rather, Jesus sets men free and gives sight to the blind. Jesus testified that these are the works that show the Jesus of Matthew and John to be the True Messiah. Giving sight to the blind is the work of Jesus.

Jesus said if He did not do the works of the Father [giving sight to the blind]:  then, persons should not believe He is the Messiah.

The spirit “Paul” encountered “on The Road To Assyria” struck “Paul” blind.  This is not the work of the Father who through Jesus gives sight to the blind.  This is not the work of the Spirit of the Lord.

Rather, striking men blind is the work of Lucifer and the spirit of the devil.  Striking men blind is the opposite of the Spirit of the Lord upon Jesus. Striking men blind is the opposite of what Jesus said is the proof that He is of the Father doing the Father’s work and will:  giving sight to the blind.  Jesus said we should not believe that a spirit that does not the work of the Father is the True Messiah [do not believe that spirit is Jesus Christ].

Jesus Christ literally warned us in advance to test the spirits:  and do not believe that a spirit that strikes men blind is the Spirit of the Lord; and do not believe that a spirit that says it is “Jesus” that strikes men blind is truly Jesus Christ Himself.  

John 10:36 say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? 37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.

Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord Godis upon me;

because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;
he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all that mourn;
to appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.

John 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in himI must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay, and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.

The neighbours therefore, and they which before had seen him that he was blind, said, Is not this he that sat and begged? Some said, This is he: others said, He is like him: but he said, I am he10 Therefore said they unto him, How were thine eyes opened? 11 He answered and said, A man that is called Jesus made clay, and anointed mine eyes, and said unto me, Go to the pool of Siloam, and wash: and I went and washed, and I received sight. 12 Then said they unto him, Where is he? He said, I know not.

13 They brought to the Pharisees him that aforetime was blind. 14 And it was the sabbath day when Jesus made the clay, and opened his eyes. 15 Then again the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight. He said unto them, He put clay upon mine eyes, and I washed, and do see. 16 Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles? And there was a division among them. 17 They say unto the blind man again, What sayest thou of him, that he hath opened thine eyes? He said, He is a prophet.

18 But the Jews did not believe concerning him, that he had been blind, and received his sight, until they called the parents of him that had received his sight. 19 And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see? 20 His parents answered them and said, We know that this is our son, and that he was born blind: 21 but by what means he now seeth, we know not; or who hath opened his eyes, we know not: he is of age; ask him: he shall speak for himself. 22 These words spake his parents, because they feared the Jews: for the Jews had agreed already, that if any man did confess that he was Christ, he should be put out of the synagogue. 23 Therefore said his parents, He is of age; ask him.

24 Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. 25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. 26 Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? 27 He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? 28 Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses’ disciples. 29 We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. 30 The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. 31Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. 32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. 33 If this man were not of God, he could do nothing34 They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out.

Here we see that Jesus Christ casts out a demon to heal a blind man [who is also mute].  In other words, an onset of “sudden blindness” such as “Paul” experienced due to an experience of contact with a spiritual source of power speaking to “Paul”:  is testified in scripture to be the work of a demon.

To say that “Jesus” struck a man [“Paul”] blind “on The Road To Assyria” would be saying that Jesus Christ is a demon.  It is a demon manifesting that suddenly strikes a man blind in an encounter with a spiritual entity:  as scripture plainly testifies.

Matthew 12:22 Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. 23 And all the people were amazed, and said, Is not this the son of David? 24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. 25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 26 and if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? 27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. 28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. 29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. 30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

The fact that “Paul” was struck blind by an unidentified power exercising demon power to strike “Paul” blind… and this demon power manifests specifically on the Road to Assyria is a major red flag. 

Again, Jesus gives sight to the blind. Jesus stated that giving sight to the blind was a sign that He is the Messiah.

Scripture also declares that it is a demon and demon power that is responsible for blindness in a case in which a demon was cast out of a man so that Jesus healed his blindness.  Jesus warned us not to believe a spirit that said it was “Jesus” if this spirit did not do the work of the Father [the real Jesus giving sight to the blind] ~ but did the work of a demon [striking a man blind suddenly in a spiritual encounter as “Paul” testifies].

And the Bible states in the Old Testament that Assyria is the location state of Lucifer’s power.

So, definitely, we have every reason to test “Paul’s” claim of salvation to examine for a false conversion; and we have every reason to cautiously test his “apostleship”.

Acts 9:26 And when Saul was come to Jerusalem, he assayed to join himself to the disciples: but they were all afraid of him, and believed not that he was a disciple.
 

Below are pics from book covers and a website page.  The antichrist is called The Assyrian Antichrist by many.  I am not affirming these books:  but the book titles.  [I have not read the books.]  What I am showing you is that it is commonly held in Bible prophecy that the antichrist is from Assyria, Assyria is Lucifer’s “seat of power”, Assyria is correlated with Babylon, and all of these are “red flags” of the antichrist hiding in plain sight.

“Saul” claims to be from Tarsus.  Tarsus is a city in Turkey.  Turkey is Assyria biblically.  Thus, “Saul” is an Assyrian.

So, we have a man from Assyria who sees a spectre on the Road To Assyria that strikes him blind: then comes claiming to be the “leader of the church”.  This is a PERFECT PICTURE of the Assyrian Antichrist.  We should all take note!  And question very thoroughly this man’s “claim to apostleship”.

Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!

how art thou cut down to the ground,
which didst weaken the nations!
13 For thou hast said in thine heart,
I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God:
I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation,
in the sides of the north:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will be like the most High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell,
to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee,
and consider thee, saying,
Is this the man that made the earth to tremble,
that did shake kingdoms;
17 that made the world as a wilderness,
and destroyed the cities thereof;
that opened not the house of his prisoners?
18 All the kings of the nations,
even all of them, lie in glory,
every one in his own house.
19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch,
and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword,
that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial,
because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people:
the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned.
21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers;
that they do not rise, nor possess the land,
nor fill the face of the world with cities.

22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord23 I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the besom of destruction, saith the Lord of hosts.

24 The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying,
Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass;
and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
25 that I will break the Assyrian in my land,
and upon my mountains tread him under foot:
then shall his yoke depart from off them,
and his burden depart from off their shoulders.
26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth:
and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations.
27 For the Lord of hosts hath purposed,
and who shall disannul it?
and his hand is stretched out,
and who shall turn it back?

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 and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
 
Ezekiel 13:1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the Lordthus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing! [“Paul” states he was blinded on the Road to Assyria ~ Damascus being the capitol city of Assyria. Then “Paul” begins to preach out from the power of an experience in contact with an entity that struck him blind in the place of the seat of power of Lucifer and the antichrist.]
 
Isaiah 10:12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem,I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria,and the glory of his high looks.

Micah 5:And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod [Babylon] in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.

 

#2. Jesus Christ commanded to close the New Testament canon of teachings and commandments to His own Red Letter teaching and commandments in Matthew 28:

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have [past tense = no new commandments] commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

John the Beloved confirms that there are to be no new commandments. John the Beloved states that those who come with new commandments, adding new commandments, have denied the doctrine of Jesus Christ in His commandments. Such have transgressed the doctrine of Christ – they have gone outside of what Jesus commanded – and are not abiding in the truth. Such are not abiding in Christ by abiding in Jesus’ commandments. John the Beloved declares that adding to the commandments of Jesus Christ ~ making new commandments ~ is an “evil deed”.

2 John 1:The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth; for the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever. Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father. And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it. For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. 10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: 11 for he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Jesus declared that the keeping of His commandment is perfection.  The commandment of Jesus is therefore: perfection.  Adding or taking away from the commandment of Jesus He states is what is termed “The Hegelian Dialect”.  Meaning, that if one adds or takes away from the commandments of Jesus Christ ~~ one is corrupting the doctrine of Christ in so doing.  Because transgressing against Jesus Christ to add or take away from His Word in His commandment:  is moving outside of the boundary line of perfection into imperfection.

Matthew 22:36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Jesus reiterates what John the Beloved stated in 2 John:  that the commandment of Jesus is that we love one another.  To “move away” from this commandment into making new commandments is to transgress the commandment of Christ.  It is also inherently bringing in legalism and performance based righteousness of the Pharisees according to a law of a carnal commandment.  Jesus Christ consistently throughout His ministry goes deep to the core into the heart of the matter.  From the heart proceeds evil thoughts and sin, Jesus taught us.  Jesus Christ says we are His disciples if we do what He says.   His commandment is to love one another:  the commandment from the beginning.

John 15:1I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman.Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you. 13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14 Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.15 Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. 16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you. 17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.

Jesus speaks this same message in John 17:  telling us that it is by love that our hearts will be united with Him as we abide in Christ:  keeping His commandment to love one another.  Jesus speaks straight to the core of the heart of the believer declaring all is of love:  the love of the Father towards Jesus, the love of Jesus and the Father towards us, the love of the Spirit, and loving God and one another from the heart by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ declares that in His teaching and in keeping His commandments: there is perfection in the perfection of love in the union of our hearts with the Heart of Jesus, thus the Heart of the Father, in His love by the Holy Spirit.

No further teaching of any commandments of any other than Jesus Christ alone can or will produce perfection. Thus, there can be no more commandments.  And we are commanded by Jesus in the Great Commission to teach believers what Jesus Christ alone has commanded in the Red Letters of His own teaching in Matthew and John.

John 17:1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: as thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.

11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; 21 that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26 And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it:that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

3.  Assuming that the canon of New Testament “scripture” that the Church of Rome has given us is the same canon of scripture that God Himself approves:  would be Roman Catholic.  We would be declaring blind faith and trust in the pope of Rome to “tell us the truth”.  Roman Catholics may choose to do so. True Protestants to the bone:  never do. 

We need to examine the whole canonization process.  We must reserve the right to test the spirits, do our own apologetics as born again saints, and refute Rome to reject false “epistles” foisted upon us by Rome as “New Testament scripture”.

The most serious matter of bringing a curse is ADDING or TAKING AWAY from what Jesus Christ has said in His teaching and commandments in Matthew and John.  Jesus declared the Great Commission to be teaching new believers what Jesus Christ HIMSELF already stated in His earthly ministry.  To add or take away from the Word Jesus spoke would be to transgress the doctrine of Christ by adding new commandments; inherently taking away from what Jesus said.

Revelation 21:16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:19 and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

We have both the right and the responsibility to test both the claims:

  1. of “Paul” to salvation and apostleship;
  2. of Rome [who canonized “epistles” authored by men as teachers/masters adding commandments to what Jesus said in His Red Letters] that any man has authority to add new teaching and new commandments of men after the ascension of Jesus Christ to the canon of the New Testament teaching and commandments of Jesus Christ alone in Matthew and John.

Matthew 23:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: all therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, and love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

Matthew 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 25 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27 and the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Matthew 16:And when his disciples were come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread. Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? 10 Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? 11 How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? 12 Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

John 8:30 As he spake these words, many believed on him.

31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

John 8:51 Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.
 
John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me. 25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
 
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
 
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
 
John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
 
2 John 1:6 And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
