“But He answered, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’” Matthew 25:12 (ESV)
So many think they’re saved, but they don’t actually know Jesus! Ouch! Such is the nature of deception!!! The church has been infiltrated with doctrines of demons, traditions of men, religious lies and boundaries that limit God, where wolves have masqueraded in sheep clothing. Yes, you heard me right. There are pastors standing behind pulpits who are not what they claim to be. They have watered down the word, introduced compromise, moved away from true Biblical truths, and the sheep blindly follow. After all, these are their shepherds, they speak so clearly and are easy to listen to. But the reality is, we have moved to a day where we seek teachers who will tickle our ears and make us happy instead of challenging us to be holy (2 Timothy 4:3-4).
Pray for the unmasking of wolves, for the unveiling of doctrines of demons and the unearthing of man’s teachings that fall short of the word of God. Pray for sheep to wake up and discern true shepherd’s and flee from false ones. Pray for your pastor, that if there is any place of compromise and deception, it would be exposed and he’d be set free from it. Pray that he would have boldness to preach the full gospel of the kingdom. Pray that the Holy Spirit would reveal any and every place you think you are ready but you’re not, where you believe you know Him but you don’t, where you have been tainted by teachings other than from the word of God!
