Acts 14: 8 And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother’s womb, who never had walked: 9 the same heard Paul speak: who stedfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, 10 said with a loud voice, Stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked. 11 And when the people saw what Paul had done, they lifted up their voices, saying in the speech of Lycaonia,
The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men.
12 And they called Barnabas, Jupiter; and Paul, Mercurius, because he was the chief speaker.
13 Then the priest of Jupiter, which was before their city, brought oxen and garlands unto the gates, and would have done sacrifice with the people. 14 Which when the apostles, Barnabas and Paul, heard of, they rent their clothes, and ran in among the people, crying out,
15 and saying, Sirs, why do ye these things? We also are men of like passions with you, and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities unto the living God, which made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein:
16 who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. 17 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness.
18 And with these sayings scarce restrained they the people, that they had not done sacrifice unto them.
19 And there came thither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and, having stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead.
God just quickened the above truth to me>> who was it that believed that god or gods could come down to us in the likeness of men?
who? those who worship idols.
The true men of God, Paul and his fellows, KNEW THIS IS LIES OF SATAN.
they said, Why do you these things? those men wanted to worship Paul and Barnabas. They actually believe the gods came down to them in the likeness of MEN.
So who else believes this lie? Almost all churches. they teach that the eternal God came down to us as a man.
God is not a man, nor the son of man. yet this lie separates the true Christians from the MANY WHO ARE DECEIVED. If you think God came down to us as a man, then you do worship IDOLS.
Notice also, it was Jews who came down and stoned Paul to death. They are the murderers of all, so said Jesus.
