BEWARE OF FALSEHOOD IN YOUR MIDST – DEALING WITH DECEPTION 6



“bringing down reasonings, and every high thing lifted up against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Christ”

 2 Corinthians 10:5 (Literal Standard Version)



Deception is falsehood packaged as revelation.

You don’t just take in every message or teaching as divine revelation.

Judge every revelation through the lens of Jesus.

“God, having spoken to the fathers long ago in [the voices and writings of] the prophets in many separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the truth], and in many ways, has in these last days spoken [with finality] to us in [the person of One who is by His character and nature] His Son [namely Jesus], whom He appointed heir and lawful owner of all things, through whom also He created the universe [that is, the universe as a space-time-matter continuum].” Hebrews 1:1-2 (Amplified)

The revelation of Jesus is the final complete revelation of God. Any thought which is not consistent with the knowledge of Christ must be cast down.

Don’t be gentle about it. Treat it as an attack against your faith. See it as warfare!

I mentioned in the previous episode that, the effect of deception is stronger when it’s from within.

I did focus on how the adversary sows wrong thoughts in your heart. However, before the adversary will make his thoughts appealing to you, he has to creep into a circle you can trust.

This is why False Prophets and False Teachers are mostly not outside the Church.

They creep their way into the Church, impress the brethren, everyone accepts them and then it becomes easy for them to spread their falsehood.

Paul the apostle in his farewell message to the elders in Ephesus, mentioned how false teachers will rise among them and gave them the solution:

“I know that after I am gone, [false teachers like] ferocious wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; even from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse and distorted things, to draw away the disciples after themselves [as their followers].” Acts 20:29-30 (Amplified).

Don’t assume anyone mentioning the name of Jesus is teaching the accurate revelation of Jesus. Have an open-mind to learn, yet don’t easily buy into everything you hear. Be like the Bereans, search the scriptures to confirm every teaching. (Acts 17:11).

Paul the apostle gave the elders in Ephesus the solution:

“Therefore be continually alert, remembering that for three years, night or day, I did not stop admonishing and advising each one [of you] with tears. And now I commend you to God [placing you in His protective, loving care] and [I commend you] to the word of His grace [the counsel and promises of His unmerited favor]. His grace is able to build you up and to give you the [rightful] inheritance among all those who are sanctified [that is, among those who are set apart for God’s purpose–all believers].” Acts 20:31-32 (Amplified).

Give your heart and mind to the understanding of the Word of His grace. For grace and truth came through Jesus (John 1:17).

When you are well rooted and built by the word of His grace you will not become a victim of falsehood.

Selah.
