Mat 24-26 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false Christ’s and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect (born again). See, I have told you beforehand. Therefore if they say to you, ‘Look, He is in the desert!’ do not go out; or ‘Look, He is in the inner rooms!’ do not believe it.”
As we approach the second coming of Jesus according to scripture there will be more and more impostor’s out there. People professing to be Jesus or to have been sent from God. All those proclaiming to be from God are not!! So how can we tell the difference??
II Tim. 2:15 “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
II Cor. 11:14-15 “And no marvel; for even Satan fashions himself into an angel of light.
It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.”
The bottom line is going to the one source of truth we have and that is our God. He recorded that truth in one book so we will have it. His word even tells us in I John that if push comes to shove we do not have a need that another human teaches us Gods truths. If we seek His truth He loves us enough to make sure that we get His truth.
Protection from impostors and error comes from!
Ephes. 6:11-12 “Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
We all need spiritual defense weapons. So, where do we find them? That armor is found in the word of God and comes from His strength and never my own. That is very comforting to weak persons such as all of us!!!!
Have a great day and don’t forget the greatest book ever written provides you with the Armor needed to do battle. So, how about taking up a good book today…….
Apart from God’s power you are helpless to do battle!
James 4:7″ Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
