…And A Smile

A smile is an almost-universal sign among humans of friendliness and good will.

Almost.

Among humans, smiling is an expression denoting pleasure, sociability, happiness, joy or amusement.
[…]
A smile seems to have a favorable influence upon others and makes one likable and more approachable.

So, a smile is not only useful to signal to others that one means them no harm, it is ALSO a useful tool for those who mean to deceive.

A person whose intentions are harmful may utilize a smile to disarm and deceive those whom the deceiver wishes to harm.

Which is a BIG reason most con-men  initially greet their victims with a smile and a handshake.

Because those who intend harm know that while a smile usually signals friendly intentions, others may also employ a smile to deceive potential victims.

Satan.

Thieves.

Wolves in the churches.

False teachers, false apostles and false prophets.

Once more, a smile is almost a universal sign among humans of friendliness and good will–but not always.

Sometimes, a smile may serve as a warning.

Which is why the reader should be wary of those who bear smiles in the end times.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“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.”
-–Romans 1:16
