The devil is at work, deceiving much .The church is the most targeted. “And many false prophets shall arise and deceive many “Mathew 24v11. Many are deceived by the miracles being performed by some false prophets, the Bible clearly warns us that in the last days false prophets shall arise and the church of God shall suffer.
The church and the women.
“Rev 12:17 and the dragon were wroth with the woman. And went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. “Satan is wroth with these people because they are doing what God requires them to do. A woman represents the church in prophecy and the devil wants to deceive and destroy the church.
Satan’s greatest weapon
Deception is the greatest weapon which the devil is using to destroy the remnant of Christ, which is why we need to be grounded on the truth of God’s Word in the Bible. This is the only way we can discern any deceptions, by knowing the truth and practicing it.”Mark 13v5, And Jesus by answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: “Most of our fellow believers will be or are already deceived by the miracles performed, yet we don’t even know how to test whether the spirit is from God or the Devil.” Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirit to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the World 1 John 4:1”
Signs and wonders
Jesus has warned us that the signs and wonders to come from these false prophets will be so deceptive, that if we are blind and not seeking the truth with earnest hearts and living according to the truth, we are sure to be deceived. Many are the times when we depend on our own feelings and views in a way that when we see something and we feel its okay then we take it as it is; instead we should test and consult God first. Signs and wonders are a not a sure sign of God’s activity since they can also be performed by false prophets.
The apostle Paul gives the same warning in his discourse about Anti-Christ in 2 Thessalonians 2.God allows deceptive miracles, but it is important to remember that the people who are deceived are those who have rejected the truth about God.”2Thessalonians 2v11-12-And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion ,that they should believe a lie 12,That they all might be damned who believed not the truth ,but had pleasure in unrighteousness”.
Satan is working as never before
We have far more to fear from within than from without .As we are approaching the earth’s history, the Devil is striving to act as director of the Christian world .With an intensity that is marvellous he is working with his lying wonders .the Bible represents Satan as a roaring lion ,seeking to devour .He desires to embrace the world in his confidence .There is an emotional excitement ,a mingling of the true with the false ,that is well adapted to mislead .Yet none need be deceived .In the light of God’s word it is not difficult to determine the nature of these movements
