Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. – Matthew 7:15
As Christians we will be exposed to imposters and need to be aware of the possibility. How will we know when we are around a wolf in sheep’s clothing? I believe if we will pray and ask the Lord to help us use discernment, He will. We should always be on guard and wise because Satan will imitate the things of God to trick us. He is a master manipulator and will lay snares to entrap those who are ignorant and heedless. Beware of hypocritical evil-doers.
Let God’s promises shine on your problems. – Corrie Ten Boom
If we want to persevere, we have to be vigilant in prayer. In the last days, we know there will be those who are “ear ticklers” and folks will flock to hear them because they will not be given the entire truth of God. They will, in fact, be deceived, believing that they are walking the narrow way when they are not.
“What do you think of God,” the teacher asked. After a pause, the young pupil replied, “He’s not a think, he’s a feel.” – Paul Frost
It is God’s will that the church be involved in educating people with the whole truth of the Bible so we will be ready for attacks. Christians are not to be passive and uninvolved in life outside the walls of the church building. As we see today, controversial issues have left Christians locking horns with government laws that do not agree with their personal beliefs.
It’s my opinion that we will see these kinds of issues more as time passes.
We need to remember that Satan is so sly and will make the wrong look right. Just because it is more accepted in society does not make it acceptable to Christ. If we are to follow Him, we must be fortified by His Holy Spirit and ready to resist the temptation to go along with the rest of the tide of public opinion about issues that are clearly called sin by God.
Learn God’s Word – in its entirety. Pray that God will help you discern the sheep from the wolves. 🙂
