There is a very dangerous path to walk on earth and it is almost a sure path into deception!
It’s a path filled with very busy good people. It’s a path crowded with electronic Christians who love great sermons, a highly motivated people who invite Me to go along with them, if I want too, because they have an important meeting that they cannot miss.
It’s a path filled with good people who really try hard to fit Me in to conform to their life. Therein lies the problem, God conforming to man, versus man conforming to God.
I only conformed to man one time in all eternity, when “I made Myself of no reputation, and took on the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of man: And was found in the same fashion as a man, because I humbled Myself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross,” Philippians 2:7-8.
One time and one time only did I conform to man and then I cried out in anguish, “it is finished.”
Ever since Adam fell, man has done his best to make Me to conform into their mindset, but this will never happen, because My ways ant thoughts are higher than mans.
In your modern day computer age, millions are trying to fit Me into their schedules. Some AM talking to them.
Some when they are in trouble, but I AM never first and foremost where they abandon their schedule to meet Mine. The reason this is a sure path to deception is they are dependent on others to guide them in the paths of righteousness.
Whenever you hear someone ask, “what would Jesus do?” and they really don’t know, this is a good indication that they are one who is trying to fit Me into their life, because My Spirit would have told them, what I would do.
If they conform to Me, “the anointing which they would receive from Me abides in them, and they do not need any man to teach them: because the same anointing teaches them all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and because My Spirit is teaching them, they will abide in Me and not enter into deception,” 1 John 2:27.
Here is the danger of deception. The first stages are non spiritual life threatening, because deception is simply believing a lie.
The first lie may lead to a simple loss of focus, the second to minor hardship, the third to major loss of direction, the forth to a catastrophic loss faith, and the fifth to denying life saving truth, and living a lie and finally the spiritual death of denying Me as the only way to eternal life.
If you are one of these busy good people, please abandon your schedule before you head down the path of deception, and let Me set your daily schedule, Matthew 6:33.
