There is a sly trick of the evil one today that seeks to deceive those that are good. Are we some of the ones who are falling away in this hour?
The urgency demands that we cut right to the matter. Is it not true, that many of us who were once taught, are seeing and have been seeing for some time now, the signs and conditions that were foretold within that which was written. Can it be denied?
Many are going to be deceived now. It’s alarming to see just how quickly this has spread all over this earth.
We must ask ourselves, why would God allow so much deception? The answer has become obvious now. Turning away from God; not needing or wanting God.
One of the signs of this time, was stated as, “loving pleasures, more than loving God.”
This self-building and increasing in wealth, has alienated so many.
Isolation is an old trick. The ruse that many of us have been experiencing, is a staggering attempt at making you think you are the only one going through something.
There is a real assault of implanting thoughts, that you are one of the few people that still care and are trying to do right. It is a carefully calculated lie.
It may seem that we cannot find those true loving people around us; that we can only talk to Jesus.
Christ has a bride and is coming back for it. Someone seemed to sneak in the idea, that only a few souls would make it and arise to meet Him.
Too often, comments and verses were misinterpreted by many that were not wise. Yes, it is a very narrow road, and many won’t get through the gate. But what about this Bride?
Is it only a handful who will barely squeeze through; limitations by those who think they know it all now?
There’s hardly anybody in the church whom you can trust or talk to. Is that true? If so, it’s no wonder that Christ has not come back for us yet.
It has unfolded, that there really are too many spots and wrinkles. And isn’t it noticed by many, that there are those who no longer express the true spirit of Christ. And perhaps, some who never did.
The true test, is whether or not we actually manifest the real fruit of the Spirit. Think of that.
I just read, that Judas was a thief and that he carried the money purse for the group. He didn’t care about the poor, but he obviously cared about the money.
What? A thief right up in the middle of the Lord’s disciples? That’s what it says!
I heard today, that there are only a few you can trust; even in the Church. What does that say about the church? What does it say about our real walk with God? Perhaps, that will change.
Discernment, in this time, is the key to finding the real people of God.
Tribulation and the time of sorrows, will most likely burn away much of this callousness and fake identity.
The critical need to find help among the bride of Christ, and the dire need for mere survival in the days ahead, will call the real force to the front.
Going through very hard things, has a way of making us more understanding and loving to those who need it.
The Jesus in us, will draw people. It always did.
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” 2 Timothy 3:1-5.
