God's Sword of Truth - The Word
MATTHEW 24:5 - “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many”. (Verse 11): “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”
MATTHEW 24:23-24 - “If any man shall say unto you, Lo here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
In the above scriptures, we are warned about looking for Christ in all the wrong places and in religions of man. Do not look for Christ in, or thru, false prophets who put emphasis on such things as prophecying as to who the false prophet or anti-christ is, or set dates for the rapture. All these shall come in the Lord’s time. We all know it’s soon to take place, and even at this time, it is in the right season, but let us not worry about a day or hour.
We were given prophecy so that we would know these things, but not to dwell on or worry about them. When you see these signs, look up and pray that you are ready, and have “oil in your lamp”. Remember, Jesus is not in religions of men, nor can He be found in buildings. He does not dwell in the hearts of those in, or of, the world. He wants us with a pure and holy heart which will be brought to Him by the Holy Spirit.
Also, the Lord is not into sports, governments or movies and, most of all, not in wars or politics. He is at the right hand of God and can only be reached by the Holy Spirit Who was left with us to guide us in all things. Jesus is not in such things as "chance" or "luck", as there is no such thing. The Lords allows things to happen for a purpose, and there is a purpose for everything.
