There are a lot of false teachers and false prophets in our world today. I don’t think they’ve intended to be, but they are repeaters of what they were taught. Now don’t get me wrong, there are others with evil intentions, but I would say, for the most part, these people think they are tending to the business of God. What if the enemy has infiltrated the seminaries? He disguises himself as a beacon of light and will make himself appear to be trustworthy and true. It’s hard to peel back the layers of lies we’ve been taught to believe when others keep adding onto those lies. Therefore, when the truth stands at attention, we are less likely to believe it. Isn’t that what the devil wants? His deception is so blatant that as people begin to open their eyes and see how deceived they’ve been, he comes on more robust and works twice as hard at his deception. He’s been here all along, so it makes sense that little by little, he would continue to add to his lies until he had the whole world convinced that it was the truth. We need to expand our thinking, step out of the invisible box, and come against him. Remember, we have the power to invoke the name of Jesus and tell him to stop. Do this when you become confused or feel you are running into a roadblock and lack understanding. It will give you a moment of clarity so the Holy Spirit can do his work.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12
