We love Joseph Prince. We pray for his repentance, and we follow our calling of crying aloud and showing God’s people their sins (Isaiah 58:1). Pastor Joseph believes there is no more law, which means there is no more sin and nothing to confess. But when we see that heresy is being preached, we must come against it and state clearly what the Word of God says.

 

Today, February 25, this man of God declared that Matthew 24 applied only to the Jews, since the Sabbath, mentioned in verse 20, was Jewish.

 

First of all, it’s not true to say the Sabbath was Jewish. Adam was not Jewish. Jesus made the Sabbath for mankind, not just the Jew.

 

Matthew 24 is not directed to the Jews. Jesus was talking to His disciples. While it’s true that most of them were Jews, not all were. The word disciple means follower. These men were followers and believers in Jesus. Today we call them Christians, even though the Bible calls them believers.

 

It’s ironic that the heresy Joseph Prince preaches is mentioned in this chapter, where Jesus warns us that many will come to mislead us and deceive us. The grace revolution is a major deception, which contradicts what the Bible says about the Kingdom of God and its laws of love. God loves all, but He hates lawlessness (Mat. 5:19).

 

Jesus said that the gate to death was a wide one. It doesn’t matter to God how many preachers teach heresy. His truth stands. The belief that this chapter applies only to the Jews is heresy. The belief that Jesus could not sin, and thus was not tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin, is a heresy. It doesn’t matter how many theologians agree with this heresy.

 

Pastor Joseph stated that anyone who minimized the truth that Jesus was fully man was preaching heresy. That’s exactly what he is stating, that Jesus wasn’t really tempted to where he could possibly sin. Jesus  said the flesh was weak, and He was in the flesh. Satan wouldn’t have wasted his time in tempting Jesus to worship him if such a thing wasn’t possible.

 

Jesus had to be like us His brothers “in all things” (Heb. 2:17) in order to truly understand us and be our High Priest. He said He could do nothing of Himself, without the Father’s help, and He says we can do nothing without Him (John 15:5).

 

Will the Jew who endures to the end be saved (Mat.24: 13)? No. Only believers will be saved. Many false prophets will arise and teach lawlessness, and most people’s love (not just the Jews) will grow cold (Mat. 24:11-12). Don’t fall for heresy!
