Don’t Follow Those Who Are False –
Learn to Discern What Is True!
“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand. I and My Father are one,” John 10:27-30.
“And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light,” 2 Corinthians 11:14.
“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved,” Matthew 24:11-13.
“Do you say that you know Me as any other one?” would say The LORD.
“For those that say that they know Me, know Me as they wish that they would know Me. For priest and prophet alike only know Me, as they wish they would know Me.
“But I AM known by those who would come to Me, and approach My Throne. For I tell you that all can know Me. But I tell you that you must learn to hear My Voice.
“Truly My Sheep can hear My Voice, but they must not entertain another one. For many false spirits have come into the world. Some masquerade to be the true one, and yet those with a discerning ear can know the true one from the false.
“Oh how I long for My Children to know Me. Oh how I would long just to sit with Me and learn from Me!
“But how can you learn to know Me when you spend so much time with the world? You must shun the ways of the world, for much of it keeps you from knowing Me in truth.
“What would I compare this generation to? I would say that you have followed the piper, and you have followed his melodies. For they would entertain you. But lo, that piper will lead you along a path, and that way is the way of destruction. Don’t listen to those melodies.
“But to those who would know My Voice, I would say that ‘This is the way, walk ye in it.’
“For indeed, you must know my voice, for in the days that come many will say that they know the truth. For have I not said that many false prophets would come?
“They will lead you astray, My Children. They lead you astray because they ‘pretend’ to know Me and yet they do not.
“I have said that you would know them by their fruits. A good tree is known by its fruits. Examine the fruits of them; and if you would study the scriptures then you would also know better how to examine them.
“Beware of those who come to you with fair speech and promise you many things. For these are the charlatans of this world.
“For with one hand they would promise you many things, and then with the other hand they would steal from you what you have.
“For I have come to give you life and that life is the light of men. I have not come to send you away, but rather I have come to receive you unto myself. And yet I must warn you, that there are dark days that are coming.
“Many prophesy that these dark days will come and that I would leave you comfortless. This is a lie and not the truth! For indeed, I will be a shelter to you, My People. But prepare for these days you must.
“For the one who would promise you many things is among you now; and some have followed him. He will take everything from you and leave you with nothing. Some have eyes to see this and yet many others are persuaded by him.
“That is all for now. But may you grow richly in My Grace, and may you come to know Me fully even as I now know you.”
“Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them,” Matthew 7:16-20.
