Jesus warned us about false brethren, who will betray you as we approach the end.
We live in a is sad and painful world. Especially because many who claim to know “Jesus” have started to betray their own brothers and sisters.
Non-believers can never impose any threat to the true Church of Jesus the Messiah. The gates of hell shall never prevail against true followers of the Lord of Lords.
The real treat against any Christian, comes from within the Church. From false brethren of different kind.
Let us first take a look at the stern warning from our Master.
But when they arrest you, do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say,for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
“Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death. All men will hate you because of me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved.
What are the most prominent areas where Christians betray Jesus and his followers:
1. Acceptance of the Papacy
You can not serve both God and the devil. All the Church reformers called the seat of the Pope, for a seat of an antichrist. You simply have to make up your mind, where you want to spend eternity. With the Pope, or with God of the Bible.
2. The teaching of men
False Brethren will start to obey human made wisdom, rather than the Word of God. They will believe more in their own cocking books and manuals, than what is written in the Bible. They have been deceived by the ancient serpent, who had this question to all of us: “Has God really said”.
3. Gossipers and backstabbers
Gossips are from the devil. Those who spread rumors and back stab others, shall not inherit the Kingdom of God. The unclean spirits love to move inside Christian fellowships. When they are entertained, they become like poison. People who are indulged in such devilish actives, must be put under rebukes and discipline.
4. Friends of the World
Those who become friends of the World, makes God their enemy. We can now see them everywhere. One of the channels who expose such false Christians, are Facebook. There we can read about their thoughts and desires. Their worldliness comes to us unlimited. They take pleasure in their life of sin, and their activities on Sundays are at best bottomless hypocrisy.
5. The supporters of Jihad against Israel:
There is nothing noble in believing in and joining distribution of lies against the state of Israel and the Jewish people. People who do not repent from their submission to Satanic lies, are an obvious generation of Hell bound people. Jew-hate and antisemitism in the Church, is as old as replacement theology. It has been around for 1500 years, and brought hundreds of millions of people towards the gates of Hell in the name of “Jesus”.
Jesus the Messiah gave us many stern warnings. One of them was against the massive deceptions in the last days:
Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.
Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
“Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.
Are you also going to become lukewarm, betray Jesus, and his true followers?

Excellent article, Ivar.
As the dispensation of Grace swiftly draws to a close, it seems that the final round of testing has come in like a flood and believers are being “sifted as wheat” to determine whether our faith is genuine or counterfeit — and whether it will hold up under severe and unbearable trails or not.
Since we are justified by faith alone, the Bible tells us, “In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ”(1 Pet 1:6-7).
“Spiritual houses often look the same until the storm of God’s judgement comes (Matt. 7:24-27). Then it is revealed that one house is spurious (built on sand) and one is genuine (built on rock). Wheat and tares look so much alike that only the Lord Himself can separate them (Matt. 13:24-30).” — Ernest C. Reisinger
Thanks for blessing me.
Let me underline that I have to take a critical view on my own life.
Have I become lukewarm?
Have I betrayed Jesus, or any of his followers?
The truth is that all of us have the capacity to fall from grace. Let us therefor overlook each others spiritual life, and carry each other burdens. You can not do that, if you skip the command of having fellowship with believers.
Yes, you have betrayed Jesus. Jesus did not call you to preach a fake gospel centered on apostate Israel, whose abominable disbelief is plain as daylight. You were instructed to preach Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. You preach a fake gospel that negates the blood of Christ poured out on the cross by convincing sinners that the spiritual church can be replaced by a political entity on a piece of land somewhere, whose citizens do not believe God and His Christ. You worship a delusion, in the pursuit of political and worldly goals. Your philosophy is political Messianism tied to the political domination of a worldly state.You are a friend of the world, who never knew the real Jesus Christ of Scripture
This is the message of the hour, Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost Acts 1:8; 2:36-38; 4:10-12; 8:12-15; 10:44-48; 19:1-7; 22:16; Eph. 4:5 KJV.
Obey and do this, then you will possess what you profess. Don’t let Jesus appear, and find you wanting, after being weighed in the balance. This generation, spoken of in 1st Peter 2:9-10; heard, believed, and obeyed the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is the Church of the living God, the pillar and ground of TRUTH!
Pray for Israel, Pray for Jerusalem. Guard our hearts and minds. These are truly wicked days and the fire under the caldron is only being stirred to a higher flame daily!
As I’d written before and say again, the Redeemed church is shrinking while the apostasy grows. There will be a lot of surprised people soon…
There will be a lot of surprised people soon…
It is basically very simple. Either you believe and obey the Words spoken by God, or you do not. There is no way right in the middle.
Personally, I always say: Jesus is always right. I am wrong. It is always I who have to change. My option about the Word of God is not important. Please believe and obey the written word of God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel.
Good morning/evening and Shalom Ivar,
That is very true. And that is why I say the redeemed church is shrinking. All the others have the form, but their hearts are void. Here in the US they say pray for our nation, pray for revival SO our nation will be restored, etc.
I say to them, get rid of the notion of a restored as your motive. Yes, pray for revival, but instead of sitting on their proverbial butts and waiting for revival, get out and do what Jesus commanded……DO revival.
But these things that are happening are also the conditions that draw the closing of the time Gentiles. So we need to work even harder as that time draws near…
America be restored to what? Really, to what? To what generation should we presume to go to the Lord and ask Him to ‘restore this Nation? When we take time out to really see what The Beloved Lord God has endured over the centuries, the cries, hunger, stench, deception etc that has gone up before Him…it boggles the mind! He mentioned that before he ‘Fried’ Sodom and Gomorrah, we tend to think it was the sodomites, well it was, yet they screamed just as hard and loud as the ones who did not get on the Ark…which was the entire world except Noah, his wife, his 3 sons and their wives…of which was ‘one per son’!
The altars have been taken away for people to go up, pray, repent, rejoice, train their children how to act in Church…it wasn’t enough to have the whole family listening to the Preacher..Children had to ‘sit and be still’..if not they knew it would be difficult to sit down…Yet that wasn’t enough to honor God, reverence,fear the Holy Lord knowing HE is God…so we outgrew God, set up ”Sunday School”…children were then removed from that atmosphere…even as they got older they still were not expected to attend Church..Teens got their own places…then the ‘programs’ began to bring more in..what they had was not enough to lead to hell, they wanted more and more. Leaders and lay people did not want the Preacher to preach against Sin, as in Adultery, all manner of wickedness..so now we’re in 2012..so the Preachers’ …say glibly ”I’m about to step on some people’s toes”…in the congregation we hear ”’Tell ’em Preacher”…”Preach it Preacher”…I hang my head in shame just thinking about what I fell for thinking I was honoring My God..We’re told ”shhhsh” don’t want to offend anyone …yet we’re told ‘speak it or let others speak His Word…but when you do, it’s not wanted..(rarely)… I will most definitely agree that we are headed…no we are ‘here’..and it’s just a matter of time that these choices will enter our homes.
And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
Question…If the majority of the stores, businesses, have women working? Where are the Men???? Where are the Men who will be held accountable to God for the spiritual training of their homes? In the Tatoo parlors? Dictating who will change what laws against God and Nature? No wonder we are here in this time…Man stopped being the “Man that GOD created him to be” and “Women stopped being a help-mate that God created her to be as well as taking care of the home, that’s a 24 hour day job but it wasn’t good enough, so now they both Men and Women can watch their children point at them in Hell screaming ”you put me here, you were supposed to show me the way”……God help us!! There will be ‘few’ that will get thru this, as we all know it will ”only be by Grace” ..not that we cared a “hoot about how The Lord felt! But let’s pray for this nation…when HE said “ALL” Nations will come against Israel.. There will be a few that will help Israel, but till that time is here, they are part of the pack that is against Israel..Pray for Israel, Pray for Jerusalem…God help us!
Thank God for Grace!
Judge not -> Matthew 7:1-3
You judge Christians who is on Facebook, I’m not on there myself, but how can they be less of Christians, followers of Yeshua/Jesus by being on there? Have you forgotten that the mission fields isn’t just on the streets anymore today, it’s also on the internet which includes facebook and a lot of other sites. Or is your only mission here to belittle other Christans as being false, to exalt yourself as good Christian or prophet or wise? Yah/G-d knows the heart of every man, including yours.
Shalom,and love i Jesus.
I have been on facebook my self. Many Good Christians speak the truth, and spread the gospel in social media. But a lot of claimed to be “Christians” expose them selves as wordly gosippers.
Amen opening their selves up to being attacked and brought into captivity at Satan’s will….(2Timothy 2:26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. )
