The Lord Jesus spoke of many spiritual dangers that can damn his trusting and loving followers. One major danger is the false prophet in sheep's clothing:
False Prophets in Sheeps Clothing Are KillersWatch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. (Mat 7:15-17)A false prophet is not a true prophet, though he may claim to know the voice of God and Godís new covenant regarding the cross. It would be great if the false prophets wore a bright sign that they were indeed false prophets, but they never do! They come disguised to the Christian via TV, radio, in books, magazines, to our doors, etc. as a sheep, that is, as a Christian teacher. They are aggressive, ravenous wolves deceitfully dressed like a sheep outwardly, but inwardly they are much different -- dangerous hungry vicious wolves.
They Target ChristiansIn the natural, wolves target sheep for food. They kill and eat sheep, among other prey. Spiritual wolves are like that too. They are not harmless. They are not helpful to the sheep. They will inflict pain, misery, injury and death to the Christians, as they feed off of them! God's sheep have a God-given hunger for his Word and truth.
They want to be taught the word. Too many of the sheep are not alert to counterfeit Christian leaders -- false prophets. Therefore, the devil is devouring them (1 Pet. 5:8) through these ferocious wolves in sheepís clothing who appear harmless and helpful!
False prophets are not servants of God, though they claim to be. They are servants of the devil. They can be zealous and highly religious as they slip in among the sheep often unnoticed because of their outward appearance -- their sheeps clothing! Jezebel of Thyatira is just one example of a false prophet (Rev. 2:20,21), Joseph Smith Jr was another and Charles Taze Russell yet another.
Sheeps ClothingJesusí followers are likened to sheep (John 10:27). That means they are submissive followers of the Lord Jesus (Eph. 5:24a), which is reflected through their God fearing obedience, including talking and thinking about the things of God found in scripture (the Bible). Consequently, when the spiritual wolves come in sheepís clothing they too will appear as the sheep -- humble, righteous followers, as they mention biblical terms related to grace, salvation, prayer, faith, eternal life, future predictions, etc. Paul stated that enemies of Christianity masquerade as servants of righteousness, who will be damned in the end:And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. (2 Cor 11:14,15)That means the spiritual wolves are disguised blind religious leaders of their blind following (Mt. 15:14). After initial salvation, can a Christian become spiritually blind? YES, absolutely yes! In fact, the lukewarm Laodiceans who were told to repent were "blind" (Rev. 3:16,17). So now the picture is graphically presented in scripture, that is, the spiritual wolves appear to be doing good as Christians do, but their fruit is seriously bad.
They are thornbushes and thistles, not grape vines and fig trees yielding nutritional food!Do you remember what Jesus said in Matthew 7:15-17 about how we can know the spiritual wolves? Their bad fruit exposes them as non-Christians, while they try to disguise their identity. So what does that mean? The main fruit of a teacher is his teachings. The spiritual wolves are false teachers, proclaiming a message unlike the biblical one, adversely affecting their listeners!
They are serving the sheep spiritual poison mixed in with some truth! The tasty ear-tickling poison they offer will overshadow the bits of truth they speak out while they sicken and kill the non alert sheep who eat it by believing their teachings from demons.We all act in accordance to what we accept as truth! Remember that fact. It is basic to all humans in the natural and spiritually.
That shows why Godís eternal truth is exalted to the zenith of importance, that is, it affects our behavior, ambitions and lifeís goals. That also reveals how the devil destroys through lies. Furthermore, sound doctrine (truth) leads to holy and fruitful living in the fear of God. That in turn will benefit others. False teaching about salvation, forgiveness of sins, the Christian life, etc. results in the opposite effect. Such is the bad fruit of the savage wolves, who appear on the surface to be righteous followers of Jesus!
The people who believe and follow the lying teachings of the spiritual wolves (the ones who swallow their poisonous teachings) will not only parrot the same demonic message they were programmed with, but also live unholy because of it. They claim to be Christians, but are shown to be counterfeits by their beliefs and behavior.
Many Will Be Deceived and Damned Through False ProphetsJesus warned of real dangers, including that many will be deceived by false prophets. One must accordingly be alert and truth-loving to escape their adverse effects. The flood of teachings we are exposed to in our day is mountainous. Lethal spiritual poison gushes from fluent and trusted teachers, especially as grace and the related are misrepresented. Here are primary examples:
Those four relevant truths about a counterfeit grace have virtually taken out the 1.3 billion Catholics throughout the world PLUS all the non-Catholics or Protestants who are so deceived. The latter have been exposed to the lie of eternal security to the point of saturation! The devil has his spiritual wolves, who appear as ministers of righteousness, in religious leadership to the detriment of eternal souls and it just continues on! They are book publishers, in the seminaries, and influence the internet search results, especially on google.
- Sanctifying grace in Roman Catholicism comes through their sacraments, starting with infant baptism when they think they were born again.
- All grace is channeled and dispensed through the mythical, sovereign and sinless Mary of Catholicism.
- The blasphemous claim that a Catholic priest can forgive and absolve sins.
- Grace is changed into a license (or allowance) to sin through the once saved always saved teachers. They teach sin which leads to death, will never lead to spiritual death! Hence, their counterfeit saving grace cannot be out sinned or exhausted by wickedness or doctrinal apostasy.
Baptist Charles Stanleyis a prime example, as is Calvinist John MacArthur. Hal Lindsey teaches the worst sins he himself has ever committed have been while he is a Christian! Of course, he also thinks he remained on the road to heaven while doing so!
False Prophet Harold CampingWickedness increasing (Mt. 24:12,13) is a characteristic of our time and the rotten poisonous fruit of spiritual wolves. The OSAS proponents -- the Calvinists -- teach Christians are all "sinners" and live like it! The indoctrinated Catholics are involved with their devotion and consecration to Mary, who they think is the mediatrix and dispenser of saving grace. By their fruit we know the spiritual wolves and their many victims. The fruit of such false grace affects the whole image of a Christian, resulting in more confusion, false converts and true Christians who have spiritually died. The latter deny their need to repent for salvation because of their doctrine. The victims of such non-Christian teachings are also proud and blind, sealing their damnation in a more complete way!
Hypocritical ChristianityThe Roman Catholics are proud about their faith, thinking they uniquely have the successor of Peter, as their chief leader unlike all others, who will be damned according to the infallible unam sanctam papal decree. They call the pope the vicar (substitute) of Christ and holy father. The same spiritual wolf idolatrously and openly bows before and kisses Mary statues and looks to his Queen of heaven for deliverance and salvation. Pope John Paul II is a prime example.
It is not being loving and merciful to remain silent
about the identity of false prophets.
The best known Protestant leaders of our day praised Pope John Paul after his death. Foggy Billy Graham said he wasnít sure of his own salvation but was sure that pope John Paul went to heaven! Mary is also the way to God for Catholics. Why? Their leaders (spiritual wolves) approved the Fatima apparitions where "Our Lady of Fatima" said so! The eternal security proponents are likewise proud in their irrevocable salvation security, as they think they understand saving grace, the cross and its immoral allowance to sow to please their flesh and still reap eternal life -- a belief which mocks God (Gal. 6:7-9)! They were taught professing Christians who reject their mythical god and false grace are believing in a works salvation and legalism.
They think their imaginary grace blocks God from seeing their sins and has even already forgiven their future sins before they were committed! Therefore, OSAS proponents commit adultery, suicide, get drunk, steal, lie and disown Jesus, yet think they are safe to do all those detestable things just like in Jeremiah's day!Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known, and then come and stand before me in this house, which bears my Name, and say, "We are safe"--safe to do all these detestable things? (Jer 7:9,10)So, as the Catholics often LIE about praying "TO" Mary, the eternal security teachers deny they teach a license to sin through their imputed righteousness doctrine. Instead, the Catholics say they ask Mary to intercede for them and the OSAS proponents falsely claim to be teaching holiness and righteousness with their false salvation security in sin -- sins such as listed in 1 Cor. 6:9,10; Rev. 21:8; Eph. 5:5-7; etc. There are no Christian adulterers, Christian drunkards, Christian thieves, etc. now, nor have there ever been!
Such victims of ravenous wolves in sheepís clothing are only a fraction of the overall worldwide populace on the road to hell, in desperate need of hearing the gospel truth of a conditional salvation security (1 Cor. 15:2) and the vital need of an exclusive focus and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, without Mary, for salvation. Biblical repentance and true saving grace result in freedom from sin addictions (Rom. 6:22) and a relationship with God, which can afterwards be destroyed.
Such is unheard of among the deceived evangelicals of today and the multitudes of idolatrous Catholics worldwide confessing their sins to their priest, worshiping the communion wafer as God, and who passively accept the poison that Mary is co-redeemer with Christ! Shocking ignorance prevails among professing Christians because of spiritual wolves! The remorseful truth is, very few professing Christians are genuine and even fewer are true spiritual leaders!
List Of False Prophets
Recognize The Spiritual Wolves As EnemiesSpiritual wolves are not helpful at all to the saints. They are disturbing, confusing and lethally deceiving the believers in Christ to their destruction and eternal damnation. Come out and away from such bad fruit. Such is not benefiting the health and life of a sheep. This is not an in house debate. Don't allow the wicked one to devour you over spiritual fairytales (taught as grace) and sound Christian beliefs. Ravenous wolves in sheepís clothing need to be revealed as dangerous wolves. Such is a GREAT service for the sheep as they will know who is offering deadly poison to the sheep.
Deception in the church is rampant. It is not being loving and merciful to remain silent to the harm and destruction of the unwary sheep!We Christians must courageously fight the good fight of the faith and take hold of eternal life (1 Tim. 6:12). Do it for yourself and the SOULS of those you love the most.
Warn others of the respected and honored spiritual wolves so rampant throughout the world in our day -- from the pope to Purpose Driven Rick Warren to Joseph Prince to In Touch Ministries, etc. Warn the righteous and unrighteous for their sake and your own, that is, so their blood won't be on your hands (Ezek. 3:18-21 cf. Acts 18:6; 20:26). Be good soldiers of Christ Jesus.
