The Holy Word of God has always warned us about false prophets, and how their lies will deceive many. They lie with slick and ease, their goal to create obstacles and confusion.
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.
1 John 4:1
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
Those false prophets who claim to be god, and do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ and how He is the only one that saves is of the devil. Do not believe in them. Believe in God’s Word completely…believe in Jesus.
2 John 1:7
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist.
The end time is near, and with Jesus Christ right at the door, many such as these will continue to try and deceive.
He replied: “Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not follow them.
Jesus Christ has warned us beforehand. Listen to our King only. The kingdom of heaven is near.
