Affected Teachings
God is giving warning to the Christians living in the last days which commenced from the time of the cross. God is making sure we know that all the things which happened to Israel were for examples for us because if we too walk in the flesh, then we can expect the same situations to occur. The modern versions omit the word “all” and make it sound like only those few things in this chapter happened to Israel when in reality everything that happened to Israel, in their entire history is a warning to the church. Just as Israel suffered some defeats in their history such as at AI, many churches today think that they can do things their way and have suffered defeats by means of being weakened and the blessing of God off of them. This is because the modern day church does not take the warning of the consequences which happened to apostate Israel. One example is that when they went into Babylon, they had basically exchanged the Scriptures for the Talmud. It is akin to the King James Bible being taken out of the church and replaced with the NIV. Once the true Scriptures are removed from any milieu, the only thing that can be expected is weakness and judgment on that establishment and this we have copiously seen in almost every church where they chose to replace the true Scriptures with a counterfeit. When God tells us that “all” these things happened to them as examples to us, then we better investigate things before we make any moves in the church or that church will suffer the same things Israel did and that is to be removed from the faithful churches on earth. Below we read that if a church does not remain faithful, then the Lord Jesus Christ will remove their candlestick as we read in Revelation 2:5 and when we look at Revelation 1:20, we see that the candlestick is the church itself and not just a part of it.
 
(Rev 2:5 KJV) Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
 
(Rev 1:20 KJV) The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
