Does the word ‘Christian’ (a public declaration that you belong to Christ) still have a Biblical meaning? Can Jo Clifford, who impersonates Jesus as the transgender Queen of Heaven when He returns to earth, call him-/herself a Christian? Where did the title of ‘Christian’ originate?
‘The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch’ Acts 11:26c
What were those ‘Christians’ like?
‘They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.’ Acts 2:42
Applied to us it means to study the Word, pray and take communion. Christians are people who responded to the Gospel call,
‘Repent, and be baptised, every one of you, in the Name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’ Acts 2:38
Without the Holy Spirit the name ‘Christian’ has no meaning.
‘And if anyone does not have the Spirit of God, he does not belong to Christ.’ Romans 8:9
The Holy Spirit is our Teacher,
‘But when He, the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you in all truth.’ John 16:13
- The Holy Spirit as our Teacher will never teach anything contrary to the Bible.
- Nowhere in Scripture do we read that Jesus is the Queen of Heaven.
- So the Holy Spirit will never teach about Jesus Queen of Heaven.
- Real Christians are filled with love, respect and gratitude towards Jesus the Messiah.
