Here are the fourth through seventh of fourteen main doctrines that are taught by La Luz Del Mundo. When you see me post more than one doctrine it is because these doctrines are very similar in subject and therefore are covered by the same scripture references. After each doctrine(s), I have listed scripture verses that address the particular doctrine(s) in question. Please read the doctrine(s) and the verses with your Bible so that you my fully appreciate the the scripture in context, and read out loud even if you are by yourself.
(Romans 10:17) - "Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ."
For a full listing of all of the fourteen doctrines go to my posting "True Doctrines of La Luz Del Mundo" date August 13, 2009.
#4 - “The man of God”, has taught the Light of the World that we must have a man of God on earth for salvation” and Samuel Joaquin Flores is that man”.
#5 - “The high priest is the servant of God, Samuel Joaquin.”
#6 - “Samuel Joaquin intercedes for us and by his prayers we are free from sin, he intercedes for us to Jesus Christ. He will give us life in the apostle Samuel Joaquin with the authority of Jesus Christ, he (Samuel) prays for our sins.”
#7 - “The Holy Bible is powerless with out the apostle, Samuel Joaquin. It is through him that he intercedes for us to Jesus for our sins.”
"Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all everywhere should repent, because He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. 15For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin. 16Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Now there have been many of those priests, since death prevented them from continuing in office; 24but because Jesus lives forever, he has a permanent priesthood. 25Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. 26Such a high priest meets our need—one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart from sinners, exalted above the heavens. 27Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. 28For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak; but the oath, which came after the law, appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.
The point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, 2and who serves in the sanctuary, the true tabernacle set up by the Lord, not by man.
How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!
15For this reason Christ is the mediator of a new covenant, that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance—now that he has died as a ransom to set them free from the sins committed under the first covenant.
Then Christ would have had to suffer many times since the creation of the world. But now he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to do away with sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin. 19Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
To me, these four doctrines really compose one larger doctrine. This larger doctrine is the main doctrine that LLDM has based all of it beliefs about having to have a man on earth as a high priest for the rest of mankind to receive the "free gift of Grace" from God the Father through our Lord Jesus Christ's sacrificed blood on the cross. Even to go so far as to say the Samuel Joaquin is the "Angel of God" as recorded in (Rev 10:1-7), reference my first blog for video and a brief comment about this.
After having read the New Testament many times over, I have never been able to find any of the apostles and disciples of Jesus Christ, even Jesus's own brother James, write anything to this affect to support LLDM's doctrine of man on earth for salvation. In fact the scriptures support the exact opposite.
I could just go on and on about this, but thanks be to God the Father and God the Son that they had their Holy Spirit do this for us already and that is with the book of Hebrews. I came to this revelation about Hebrews while researching these four doctrinal statements and as you have already seen and read, helpfully with your Bible open, that other then my first citing in the book of Acts all of the other citings are from the book of Hebrews.
I want to point out to everyone, because I think many people while reading verses, passages and the books of the Bible, forget that the individuals who wrote these scriptures were under the direct influence of Holy Spirit using their minds and hands to write down for all future generations the will of the Lord Jesus Christ. So with that in mind remember this while you are reading the book of Hebrews that these words are directly from the Lord; who at the time of the writing of this book (letter) to the Hebrews was already sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven, and is still sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven just as he has been for over 2000 years and will continue to do so until His seconding coming to Regine here on earth.
Before reading the book of Hebrews, pray to the Holy Spirit through the Lord Jesus Christ alone for truth and understanding. Just as in a court of law, the facts and only the facts, but you must decided for yourself what verdict you want to make after having reviewing the facts. But remember the truth is still the truth even if you do not want to believe it. Just because you do not want to believe a truth does not void or even change a truth.
A man standing on a side of a cliff says to his friend next to him, "gravity, I don't believe in gravity." and walks of the edge. What happened?
God's blessings through our Lord Jesus Christ as powered by the Holy Spirit, Amen.
