In 2 Peter 2:1-2, it is written: “But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.”
It’s a fact that there are ravenous wolves in the church because Jesus Himself said so (Matthew 7:15). Sadly, some of these wolves lead big churches, have a huge following online and are leading millions astray.
Are you listening to and learning from shepherds appointed by Christ, under the authority of the Holy Spirit, who are teaching the “whole counsel of God” (Acts 20:27), “rightly dividing the Word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15) and building God’s Kingdom?
OR are you being deceived by motivational speakers who tell you what you want to hear, who make you feel good, BUT are spreading fake news instead of the Good News and building their own kingdoms?
In 2 Timothy 4:3-4, it is written: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.“
Unless we are relying on the Holy Spirit to pursue a personal relationship with Jesus and live in utter dependence on Him (John 15:5), we cannot be the Christians Jesus has called us to be.
If the Bereans “searched the Scriptures daily to find out” if what Apostle Paul taught is true, how much for should we as Christians be examining what we are watching and listening?
In Matthew 7:21-23, Jesus warns us: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”
Does Jesus know the Christian(s) you are a fan of? Does Jesus know YOU?
