Strange Fire

These days, I'm reading a chapter a day through the Bible and this morning, I read Leviticus 10 which tells how two of Aaron's sons were killed because they offered strange fire before the LORD.

Right after, I read an email from a friend which included a link to The Tabernacle Tour: http://www.thetabernacletour.com/index.html.

When I randomly clicked on The Complete Tabernacle Tour, I found it very interesting that this popped up on my screen!

Today, the Bride has gone after ‘strange fire’ types of teaching like:
 A self centered ‘health and wealth’ doctrine;
 The ‘Kingdom Now’ teaching of trying to bring the Kingdom of God to earth through the political process;
 A ‘social gospel’ without the Cross or preaching the Cross without love and social involvement
 A “rapture” that pulls all Christians out of the world before the Great Tribulation
 “At will” trips to heaven and spirit travel
Truth taken out of context or embellished is heresy. The truth of Scripture taken out of context or not balanced with other passages can lead to heresy. Throughout history heresy has come in all forms of ‘strange fire’ types of teachings that are at the expense of preaching and teaching a balanced, whole Biblical Gospel. ‘Strange fire’ is a heretical teaching that subverts, distorts or perverts solid Biblical doctrine.

Here are verses 1-5 of Leviticus 10:
"And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not. And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD. Then Moses said unto Aaron, This [is it] that the LORD spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace. And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp. So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said."

May the LORD Jesus Christ always keep us on the right path and away from all strange fire I pray.
