Protection. October 10 2019.
“ Beware of false prophets , who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” Matthew 7:15. ESV.
We live in a day of spiritual confusion. There are thousands of voices who claim to know the truth and the way to peace, happiness and eternal life. Many of these teachers do not know who God our Father and Jesus, His Son oare, the one true God who is alone worthy to be praised and honoured.
In times of crisis these false teachers, who are not familiar with God’s Word, will prey on those who are not strong in their faith. , We need men and woman who will boldly proclaim the truth of Jesus Christ. Ask God to protect the innocent and gullible from wolves in sheep clothing.
We must always be able to give a reason for the hope within us. We must not be tossed back and forth by waves of false teaching. We must continue to grow in wisdom and faith, so that we will be mature and complete, lacking in nothing of spiritual value.
“ But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false prophets among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them——— bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2 Peter 2:1. NIV.
“ Nothing makes a man so virtuous as belief of the truth. A lying doctrine will soon beget a lying practice. A man cannot have an erroneous belief without by and by having an erroneous life. I believe the one thing naturally begets the other.” Charles Spurgeon
