It’s hard to know who to trust when it comes to teachers of the Word. Many have come, saying they represent Jesus, but teach something contrary to what is written in the Bible. You may think you are safe to buy something in a Christian book store, or from the “Christian” section of the secular book store, but not everything on those shelves lead you in the direction of Christ. There are a few who have been filling those shelves for years who are now echoing the words of the secular media, causing questions about their beliefs, and invalidating their past teachings. A leopard doesn’t change its spots, fingerprints will always expose identity, and the enemy will infiltrate our ranks; remember Judas.
How will you know? Their roots will be exposed! However, if you’re finding it hard to tell, ask God for discernment, and listen to the check in your spirit; it may be the Holy Spirit guiding you. Know the scripture! If you diligently read and study God’s Word, you will be able to determine the truth, and the enemy will find it harder to change your direction. The day of the Lord is upon us, don’t get distracted.
Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 1 Thessalonians 5:1
And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. Matthew 24:11
