False Teachings

All my life I have heard that we are living in the last days....that Jesus could come at any moment.  I've always known that was a true statement. The difference for me now is....I really believe it!  Last night I had a conversation age....mysticism....contemplative prayer....the emergent church....and books and preachers that are leading people into these types of things.  The scary part is that many of these things are disguised so well we don't even realize that much of what we read and hear is wrong.  The people teaching and writing these things are being led by a spirit but it is not the Holy is a spirit of darkness....evil.  They make it all sound so good that we can sometimes be led down the wrong path.

2 Corinthians 11:13-14

New King James Version (NKJV)
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.

We need to be so careful because time is short and we want to make sure we are ready when Jesus comes back.  We all know that satan is a liar and the master of deceit.  Satan wants nothing more than to destroy make us make us get on the wrong path and fall away.

John 8:44

New King James Version (NKJV)
44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Last night while talking to a good friend, I was reminded that we need to pray for discernment and wisdom to know what is right so that we won't be deceived.  So we won't be caught of guard and read or listen to someone that is doing the work of satan.  We want to know the truth when we hear it and recognize the things of evil when we hear it.  As my friend always says....We want to read, and listen to, only the things and people that are "spot on"....not those that just tickle our ears.  At first I was thinking how confusing it is to know who is right and who is wrong because most of them do a good job of deceiving....of making wrong things sound right.  Then after our conversation I was actually excited again because I know that God is with us.  As long as we stay close to Him....ask Him for guidance.... we will be okay.  

1 Peter 5:8

New King James Version (NKJV)
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Evil seems to be running rampant in our world today.  Satan, and all of the demons, are running around grabbing on to everyone they can because they know....just like we do....that time is running short.  We are literally in a war fighting against them. 

Ephesians 6:12

New King James Version (NKJV)
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

I'll finish this by saying....

Be careful whom you listen to....whom you believe.  There is a lot of false teachings and gods out there but there is only one true GOD!  He is the God that made everything....the God that sent His Son to die for our sins so that we could live forever with Him.  His coming back again and it's going to be sooner than some of you think.  Are you ready for Him to return?  Are you ready if that trumpet blows today?  Are you ready if tomorrow comes and you don't wake up?  If you're not sure, do something about it.  Pray and ask Jesus to forgive you.  Tell Him your sorry for your sins and ask Him to come and live in your heart right now.  He will do that.  Jesus died for you so that you can live for Him.

"until we see JESUS....face to face"



  1. Hi Chelle,
    There are so many teachers out there that look really good but they have a few fundamental faults. We need to be very discerning in who we listen to. We need to search Scripture to see if these people are correct.
    I just got an ear full for gently correcting some people I know about someone they were following whom I see is not Scriptural sound. They became offensive and were quite rude to me for pointing this out to them. When Satan gets a foothold he really can get in and wreck havoc.

    Good word!

  2. Hi Chelle,
    when my siblings and I used to argue as children, we used to turn to our dad and say 'Dad, dad, who is right?' Our Father always used to say 'Well, let's see what the Lord says', and remarkably he always used to find an answer to solve our arguments from the Bible. We too can ask our Father, 'Dad, who is right?' as we hear different teachings from different individuals and groups, and we will get the same answer 'Let's see what the Lord says', and be able to search the scriptures to see if what is said is true.
    God bless
