Are You Being Deceived

Are You Being Deceived?
Author: Pat Aman..

Matthew 24 says, “For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and they shall show great signs and wonders. Insomuch that If it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

This verse shows it is the reason that each of us should stay in the Word.

Before I make my point in this devotional let me say, I know we had to live stream our church services during this time of crisis and that was wonderful. And I understand that there’s home bound individuals that are not capable of leaving home, so live stream is a blessing to them.

With the technology we have today God’s Word is being preached around the world, and many souls have come to the saving knowledge of Jesus.

But, I hear people constantly saying that they are watching difference ministers on every iPad, computer, iPhone, Comcast hour after hour.

Every time I turn around they are sharing with me something that they have heard from ministers somewhere.

They can even quote the message word for word. They are taking every word that is being preached and not even making sure that what they heard is exactly what the Bible says…

But when I ask them to quote a bible verse they have memorized, they cannot do it. When I ask them to tell me a time that they knew God spoke to them, they cannot.

These are the people who are going to get deceived. These are the people who have already been deceived. These are church members, Christian people.

What a sad thing because when they are alone in their homes needing an answer for direction, and needing to hear the voice of God, I promise you a on line minister will not be there for you, but God and His Holy Word, the Bible will be…

We need to turn the off the electronic devices and get the Bible down from the shelf, open it and see what God has to say to us.

The Word of God is what Jesus used to defeat Satan in the wilderness and the Word of God is what will help defeat Satan in our lives.

The Word of God is what will teach us, so that we will not be deceived by false prophets.

Today make a choice to change your life and your circumstances.

Open the Book – God’s Road map…Your sword…

Just as Apostle Paul taught Timothy, Bible study and prayer time is important in helping to keep us strong.
Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

We must remember 2 Timothy 2:15 is not just a command to study the Bible, being an approved workman involves much more. Paul wanted Timothy to understand that to be a workman that God could approve, he would have to be diligent in his service to God. God is not the kind of Master that accepts shoddy work! By earnestly applying himself in service, Timothy would not need to be ashamed as he stood before God in the day of judgment.

Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

Remember, Satan himself knows the Bible and quotes it to deceive you. Please study so you will know when you are being deceived
