MATTHEW 7:15_but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
II Corinthians 11:3-4 (KJV), “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he [false prophet] that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him …13For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
It is easy to be deceived by smooth talkers – if you don’t know the truth. The more truth you feed your spirit, through the Bible, the quicker you recognize a lie.
The inside of this sheep’s clothing is completely opposite from the outside. A wolf will devour a sheep—so will a lion, I Peter 5:8 (KJV), “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”
The devil is actively searching for those who do not know the truth, to snare them.
God of All, Help me know the truth and escape the devil’s trap. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ wants me to be vigilant in the truth—He saves me!
