“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
—2 Timothy 3:13
The churches are apostate, corrupt and deceiving. IF one is looking for guidance for the coming storm, seek shelter in the Lord Jesus Christ–NOT a man-created church.
“The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.”
Though this writer issues regular warnings about the apostate churches (which are basically warnings from God’s Word), the level and magnitude of deceptions in the churches never cease to surprise.
“For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, fashioning themselves into apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for even Satan fashioneth himself into an angel of light. It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works.”
—2 Corinthians 11:13-15
Consider this a “general” warning.
Add this to the many previous warnings: the churches are NOT to be trusted. They feature”nice people”–always smiling, always cheerful–who are ungodly and rebellious.
In the times in which we live, many churches are shameless. Instead of teaching the Word of God, they concentrate on ungodly “Christian books” such as The Shack, The Harbinger or The Circle Maker.
They smile as they spoon this poison into the ears of the naive.
The churches talk the talk of preaching the gospel and studying the Word. BUT when it comes time to walk the walk, they somehow manage to leave parts of the gospel out and the Word usually seems to be talked about more than studied.
“It’s all about the Word!”
“We love the Word!”
“It all begins with the Word!”
“We can’t get enough of the Word!”
But somehow, the Word of God gets exchanged for the word of men.
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;”
—1 Timothy 4:1-2
One simple test: does your church follow the Bible?
Or does it TALK about following the Bible, “loving the Word,” loving Jesus? Do it have women in spiritual authority contrary to the Word of God? Does it promote “busy work” and endless social events? Does it talk about the gospel but end up somehow teaching “discipleship” instead?
“He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”
—1 John 2:4
Almost 2000 years ago, the apostles battled imposters, seducers and infiltrators–and the New Testament is full of their warnings and admonitions.
After almost 2000 years of seducers, imposters, infiltrators and evil men, deceived and deceiving, the churches are totally in the hands of the enemy.
Consider yourself warned. Heeding the warning is part of good end times preparation.
“They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-4
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
