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.1Tim.4:1.
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2Th2:3.
As you already know that we are living in the end of the last days,and a lot of strange things are happening around us,and it’s increasing in frequencies even as the coming of the Lord draws near.One of the signs in the bible that shows we ‘re living in the last days is that some shall depart or fall away from the faith.We are told in the bible that before the rapture takes place,then the great tribulation sets in,and the anti-christ is revealed,there shall be apostasy or falling away from the faith.These have been happening long time ago and even now it’s increasing, actually some of this people departing from the faith, are not going out of the church,they still attend the church activities,maybe holding one position or the other but sadly there are not in the faith,that is,they are not adhering to the complete true teachings and doctrines of Christ,and not giving the word of God,the bible, the proper place it deserve.
This is a serious issue that should not be ignore,for we are living in the most delicate and darkest time in the world right now,and also the most glorious time for God’s kingdom on earth.There is such an apostasy today like never before,bible faith and godliness is not be preached and lightly talked about,and so much messages about grace without repentance which are leading many to eternal damnation.May God help you and I,not to be deceived in this last days,even our Lord Jesus when commenting about the last days,…said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many,Matt.24:4-5. He also said,For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.Matt.24:24. Not all that glitter is gold,people be warned,as God has laid it in my heart,so I warn,Jesus said even THE VERY ELECT may be deceived. Let him that thinketh he stand take heed lest he fail.
Some christians and churches are now turning away from God’s word and embracing doctrines of demons,for instance, homosexuality which the bible strongly condemned is now been accepted by some churches,few weeks ago I read of a pastor conducting gay marriage for his son in America.And I also read that the head of the Lutheran church in Sweden,Bishop Jackelén doesn’t believe in the virgin birth of Jesus, and ‘compares him similar’to Mohammed and that hell doesn’t really exists.So sadly that these false doctrines and teachings are spreading all over the world right now,brethren lets wake up,we don’t have much time to spend here on earth before Christ comes for His true church.
Nevertheless we should be caution and never go about labeling others false prophets or christians without strong confirmations from the Lord..for by their fruit you shall know them. If there’s one gift we need in the body of Christ today,it is the gift of the discerning of spirits.The bible commands us to test every spirit whether they are from God or not. 1John4:1.That’s why every believer in Christ really needs this gift.Remember there is true and original (revivals,miracles,signs and wonders) from God and also,there’s fake and counterfeit from the devil.
We are living in a time when people don’t want to hear the total truth and doctrine of the bible,..when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2Tim4:3-4.
How desperate,we should cry out to God for true Holy Spirit revival,for only then can the wave of deception going round can be stopped and curtained.
