This Could Be The Last Day – Are You Ready?

This Could Be The Last Day – Are You Ready?
By:
Bill and Teddy Rogers
We
are already in what is called the
Last Days”. Satan
knows that his time is short and he will use every trick, tactic,
scheme, device and person at his disposal to deceive as many people
as possible.
One
of Satan’s favorite tricks is to create doubt about God and God’s
Word through questions and messages presented by his false teachers
and preachers.
1
Timothy 4:1-2 (NIV)
says “The Spirit clearly says that
in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving
spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through
hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot
iron.”
2
Corinthians 11:3-4 (NIV)
says But
I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning,
your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure
devotion to Christ. For if someone comes to you and preaches a Jesus
other than the Jesus we preached, or if you receive a different
spirit from the Spirit you received, or a different gospel from the
one you accepted, you put up with it easily enough.”
2
Thessalonians 2:3-4 (NIV)
says
Don’t
let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until
the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man
doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over
everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets
himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”
Today,
as Christians, we cannot avoid every kind of evil because we live in
a sinful world.
We
have many distractions that can divide
our attention and prevent us from concentrating on our faith. As a
result, we can easily lose our faith by letting our lives become
filled

to
excess
and
dysfunctional.
We
should strive to make sure that we eliminate as many distractions as
possible, avoid tempting situations so we don’t give evil a foothold,
and concentrate on living our lives according to God’s Word.
WATCH
OUT FOR FALSE TEACHERS
AND
PREACHERS
Matthew
24:4-5 (NIV)
says Jesus
answered: ‘Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come
in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive
many.’”
Exactly
as the Snake seduced Eve with his smooth talk, Satan will attempt to
lure you away from the simple purity of your love for Christ.
Don’t
fall for captivating
speakers who sound good and seem to make sense.
Satan has many false teachers and preachers that appear to make
sense, who sound like an authority, and say words that you like to
hear. Don’t let your mind be corrupted or seduced! Constantly search
the Bible and check his or her teaching or message preached against
God’s Word.

1
Thessalonians 5:21-22 (NIV)
says but
test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.”
The
Bible is God’s infallible word and should be your authoritative
guide. Those who teach or preach anything that contradicts God’s Word
are false teachers or preachers, even if they appear to be an
authority with exceptional credentials. Always carefully check
everything they say against the Bible.
But,
don’t suppress the Spirit, and don’t stifle those who have a
word. On the other hand, don’t be gullible. Test and prove
everything until you can recognize what is truth. Keep only the good
and hold fast to that. Then, throw out everything that is false.
Be
on guard lest you lose your footing and get swept off your feet by
these lawless and loose-talking false teachers and preachers. Grow in
grace and understanding of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Read
your Bible every day and get to know Him better and better. This is
the most important step in recognizing when false teachers and
preachers are making false and misleading statements.
We
all still have much room for growth. No matter where we are in our
spiritual journey, no matter how mature we are in our spiritual
faith, the sinful world will always challenge our faith. Find time
every day to read your Bible and draw closer to Jesus. This will
prepare you to stand firm in your faith in any and all circumstances.
Put
On God’s Armor
To
defeat Satan at every turn, arm yourself with knowledge and
understanding of God’s Word and protect yourself with the full armor
of God as describes in Ephesians 6:10-18.
Let’s
constantly be on guard and not be one of the millions who will be
deceived and lost.
