If you are a servant of Jesus Christ you need to be on your guard. Why? Because there is a spiritual battle going on. The spirit of anti-christ is moving about in our churches. Granted, this has been going on for years, but recently the pace has stepped up. Apostasy is defined as the abandonment of a previous loyalty. This enemy spirit that lurks in our churches is seeking to have us abandon our Lord Jesus and pledge loyalty to Anti-Christ. Jesus says in Rev. 2:4...Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. This enemy spirit is dressed in sheep's clothing. It has the look of goodness, but is devoid of the power of God. This enemy lurks about with various names such as: Purpose Driven, Emergent, New Apostolic Reformation, etc.
Below are Biblical warnings:
Matthew 24:4-5 says..."And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many." KJV
1 John 4:1 says..."Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are
of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."
2 Thessalonians 2:2-4 says..."Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come. Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God." NKJV
1 Timothy 4:1 says...“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall
depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of
2 Peter 3:17 says...“Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness.”
Jude 1:4 says..."For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old
ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God
into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus
It is important to be arrayed in our spiritual armor to resist the enemy and his lies. Here below are some links to very good writing presented by men standing on the "Rock".
