Milk or Meat?

 

clip_image002

Milk believers are useless.

Hebrews 5

12 In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God’s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food!

13 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness.

14 But solid food is [meat] for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

Hebrews 6

Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

This is a short post.

The point here is that too many Christians are ignorant and immature.

Some of this is their pastor’s fault.

Some of this is their own fault.

They will all go through the tribulation in order to be tested and matured.

Those that have been working for the Lord will go in the rapture, or have protection during the Tribulation, if they are called to minister during that time.

For now, before the tribulation begins, God has no need of Christians in diapers.

He needs soldiers, teachers, evangelists, pastors, apostles and prophets (Ephesians 4:11)

If you are not one of these, you are useless to God, the Body of Christ, and yourself.

So grow up, or suffer later.

  1. […] here for […]

  2. You are absolutely correct, most Christians are still in diapers and feel intimidated to share their faith in Jesus because they have either not been baptized in the Holy Spirit or have not been grounded in the Word and thus do not feel that they can answer questions about their faith. To that end I have put together a book of Bible studies that quickly get a new saved or baby Christian quickly grounded in God’s Word so that they can be bold in the Lord. The book is a Handbook for Christian Soldiers called “Building on a Sure Foundation – Handbook for Christian soldiers” and is available on Amazon.com and other book store web sites including Walmart.com.
    See my web site: Jesus-movement.org

  3. Christianity teaches that the law , Torah, is either not for them or that it’s been done away with. This is where the ‘meat’ is.

  4. So what does that day to all the moms out there who are just caring for their children day in and day out?

    • erinn

      it does not say one way or the other.

      as a full time mom, you can still study the word of God and teach it to your children, so they will grow up to be strong believers

  5. Thank you so much for taking the time and making the effort to help us Marianne. I really appreciate your boldness and sincerity. I really needed to understand this better. I believe that a tremendously difficult time is coming up soon for people who choose to be Christ’s servants. We need to be prepared for this test and so help us Heavenly Father to be the people You need us to be. I am honestly afraid!

  6. I’m gonna completely disagree here as this is not what Scripture says.

    Whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

    Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God.

    Then those who feared the Lord spoke with one another. The Lord paid attention and heard them, and a book of remembrance was written before him of those who feared the Lord and esteemed his name. “They shall be mine, says the Lord of hosts, in the day when I make up my treasured possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his son who serves him.

    “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

    But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

    “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.

    I am writing to you, little children, because your sins are forgiven for his name’s sake. I am writing to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning.

    Jesus had a major theme…whoever believes in Him will be saved, including the newborn Christian who was just put on milk.

  7. Marianne and others:

    I hear the meat and milk analogy a lot but little explanation of what this means.

    Would it be fair to say:
    – Eating meat is where you read the word for yourself with little to no guidance by anyone except the Holy Spirit.
    – A babe in Christ doesn’t read the word for themselves but relies on someone else to pour into them?

    Please help refine what this means.

    • If you look at the scriptures above you will see that milk is defined as telling people to get baptized to repent Etc but that’s all I know the meat of the word indicates deep study of the word looking for God’s meaning in words and phrases in other words for example who is Mystery Babylon? What does the weight of glory mean? What does it mean to Fellowship in the sufferings of Christ? How do we gain our crown in the Heavenly Kingdom? Explain the relationship between the father son Holy Spirit using scriptures. How did Jesus change or not change after he came to Earth? What does redemption mean? How do you explain salvation using the Old Testament scriptures? These are just some examples of topics that constitute meat. Most of my topics on my website are directed at meet or to be meet instead of milk the trains the person to deeply understand the word of God and hidden meetings. It teaches the person how to witness to other people. It enables the believer to use his spiritual gifts and Gifts of the Holy Spirit to edify the church and himself. Does this explanation help any?

    • Milk and meat refer to growing up. Babies, new Christians, can only handle milk. They have just begun reading Scripture and haven’t yet been trained in it. As you spend time in the Word, you should begin to mature into an adult who can chew on the meat, or deeper issues of the Word. You should begin developing fruit, such as behavior changes and attitudes, displaying more love, humbleness, and greater faith.

  8. Do we ever really know enough, do enough, ready enough?…hey this is NOT Islam where everything is based on works and one never feels good enough for anything!.We have been saved by the love and grace of God, who gave up his Son for all of us.When Jesus had fed the 5000, some Jews came up to him and said…”What must we be doing, to be doing the works of God?”…Jesus replied…”Believe in him, whom God has sent”….In other words, our belief system, and our faith is centred on what Jesus has already done for us.All works are useless if they do not stem from faith.The Bible encourages those who are strong in the Faith to encourage and teach those who are weak, and this obviously is set also by example in all things!.It will be totally up to God who he chooses to rise up on that great day, and not our perception as to who is mature or not in him!.We need to weigh up our faith on a daily basis and to check inside our hearts. The love of many is going to grow cold, during these final days, that is why we need to stand firm in Jesus!

  9. People look at Christians on the way they behave with other people. I know a lot of people in and out of the church who mud sling other people all the time because they don’t carry on like them in an evil way.

    When I have attended funerals of people who have died, that person is remembered for what good deeds they have done in their life to other people. They are not remembered for how wealthy or poor they are. The only people who remembered how wealthy or poor they are, are they people who are getting something out of their estate.

    I have read on the Internet in Australia the other day that married people are cheating on their husbands or wives on the Internet up to five people. and the divorce rate is increasing. Why? Because people are getting very selfish more and more every day.

    Christians should show love and concern for each other by helping those who need help. I don’t mean letting people use you to get what they want out of you. You should never cast your pearls before swine. Take note of what they do not what they say. If it does not add up they are not genuine in their need.

    To help people you have to be a “meat” person not a “milk” person in spirit with God because the world is getting more and more wicked.

  10. This week there is a conference wherein many religions will gather together for the purposes of unity. I am concerned that the enemy is working to draw in various denominations under the guise of “unity” in order to usher in a new deception.

    We must be so careful in these last days; the Church—when I say “Church” I mean the Body of Christ not the building—must use caution when aligning herself with others. We must maintain our purity, our holiness, and refuse to compromise. This, along with prayer, is how we raise a standard of righteousness in the land. When we step into situation that present compromise, we risk tainting the call the Lord placed upon His Church and it doesn’t take long before the world can see no difference between the Church and the world. Didn’t Jesus call us to stand apart from this world? It’s out of obedience that we strive to do so.

    • Amen to that

      • there are few pastors which i have listened to their teachings for years, i do not know hwy they went to this catholic meeting,
        i felt sad ,
        does anyone have any articles regarding to how to not to be deceived? , what make people go to this kind ecumenical meeting ? any reason ? thanks

        • how not to be deceived….

          know the Word of God, pray for discernment, study things and see if they agree with bible or contradict it…stay away from those who are false believers, and do not listen to them

          people can go to a meeting to be helpful to others, or because they want to compromise and go along with others

          • thanks,

            honestly hard to believe our bible teachers /pastors who went to the ecumenical meeting it just happen before our eyes .

            God is coming

    • there is someone else share this regarding to deception.
      quote
      i was reading a book and realized it was new age but it was so smooth and sensual –meaning it made me feel really good -when i asked HIM -how do I tell the difference Lord they are using YOUR WORD-
      God said -does it take you to the cross?-
      are they bringing a spirit of repentance? –
      or does it make your flesh feel good?
      You must give up your sin and it hurts -you must pick up your cross to follow me –
      and then the scripture dropped in my head about everyone that climbs up the wrong way is a thief and a liar –that simple truth really brought much clarity -I hope it helps you — quote

  11. The best way, in my experience, to grow in the Lord and get strong by eating “meat” is to obey Jesus’ orders to go out and start preaching the Good News (telling people about Jesus and what He has done for you and who He is according to the Gospels). One doesn’t have to go to Seminary or sit in the pews for 30 years or more to do that. That is how the Jesus Movement started and grew and that is what we need more of today. Just go out and start passing out salvation tracts and telling others about your personal testimony and pray for a new outpouring of God’s Spirit in our country and the world.

    • As a Christian you have to stand up to what is right in your country. There are people who are standing up to the “same sex marriage” vote now in Australia saying “No”” to “same sex marriage”. I said “No” in the vote because there are more behind this campaign then marriage issues.

  14. Marianne,

    pastor neville johnson ‘s teaching regarding to discernment , deception…audio album

    • As a Christian who is a “meat” eater you should have a discerning spirit that can sense any evil in any area of your life and the life of others. I have a discerning spirit and when there is something not right I get a heavy feeling in my chest about that person or persons or situation. Do you?

      • Yes I do, if I have the wisdom to pay attention to the clues in front of me. sometimes I get distracted and I miss it, but most of the time I do pay attention and figure out what’s going on.

  16. anyone could interpret this ? a pile of clothing ,shoe, speech , separate the sheep and goat ……

    pray for discernment

    interpretation:
    My husband, in this dream, was actually JESUS. He was grieving over the state of His children, His beloved church that was being deceived. He knew a great falling away from the faith was coming. (2 Thessalonians 2:3) I actually felt His sorrow while sitting next to Him.
    The boil on my arm represented false doctrines and false teachings, which are vile, like a disgusting blemish on the Church. The reason the blemish completely disappeared from my arm was because I renounced those teachings and was healed of their consequences. Also, I noticed that JESUS healed me without me even asking. HE knows are needs before we even ask! (Matthew 6:8)
    The women dancing with each other represents the two different churches, the true and the false. The women dressed in white bridal gowns are the Bride of Christ, while those dressed in black funeral gowns represented the harlot, which is the false church with its false doctrines, which leads to death. The two brides seemed completely oblivious to whom they were dancing with, which represents the Church coming into ‘union’ with deception, unaware of it.
    I believe the reason the LORD brought this to my attention is because this false church is now emerging through ecumenism, which is working to bring unity between Evangelicals, Charismatics and the Catholics. This movement started in the late 90’s, but is now becoming stronger. Just last week, there was a 3-day convention with highly respected evangelical leaders and Catholic clergy. In further study, I found they want to bring unity and denounce the Protestant Reformation. They truly have an agenda that they are promoting. (Source: kairos2017.com)
    I believe the merging of these groups is now forming the one world religion of the last days, which will be ruled by the false prophet, just like the beast system will be ruled by the antichrist.
    While unity among the brethren is paramount and should be highly sought after, it is not acceptable if it brings false doctrine, false teachings and heresies into the Church, which is what is happening. Once these false doctrines seep into the true Church , it will spread like leaven. I believe this could be part of the ‘great deception’ that comes in the last days:

  19. You are correct Marianne! Too many people have a tendency to be a sheeple. They find someone they admire and are duly impresses with and follow without questioning. They even defend that person to the point of idolatry. We see this in many circles, not just religion but politics, you name it. Right now on the Hebrew movement they have been arguing over how the Name is pronounced, never mind when it was first given it was pure pictographs and when Moses received the Name it was those same pictographs that curiously represent ‘behold man behold nail’. That is just one area.
    The thing is a person can’t really eat meat and teach others if that person is still suckling sheep’s milk, often times even in adoration of the ewe as it’s often the case.

    • shoshana

      I think 95% of the church is this way. and they will wonder why they have to endure the tribulation. since they won’t mature by themselves, circumstances will force maturity on them.
