And Jesus answered and said unto them, TAKE HEED THAT NO MAN DECEIVE YOU. FOR MANY SHALL come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall DECEIVE MANY. Matthew 24:4-5. And many FALSE PROPHETS SHALL rise, and shall DECEIVE MANY. Matthew 24:11. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. For there shall arise FALSE CHRISTS, AND FALSE PROPHETS, and SHALL SHEW GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall (try to) deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:23- 24. For they that are such SERVE NOT our Lord JESUS CHRIST, but their own belly; AND by good words and fair speeches DECEIVE THE hearts of the SIMPLE. Romans 16:18. For if a man THINK HIMSELF TO BE SOMETHING, when he is nothing, HE DECEIVETH HIMSELF. Galatians 6:3. But EVIL MEN and seducers shall wax worse and worse, DECEIVING, AND BEING DECEIVED. 2 Timothy 3:13.For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; BUT AFTER THEIR OWN LUST shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and SHALL BE TURNED UNTO FABLES (deceiving themselves). 2 Timothy 4:3-4. Only by having your mind IN, OF, AND THROUGH CHRIST can you escape deception. SEEK THE FACE OF CHRIST, study it and KNOW HIM, and none of the others will be able to deceive you. Do you want Christ? Or do you want a christ made up in your own mind? There are lots of christs to choose from, but, ONLY ONE REAL ONE. Seek Christ, ALL OF YOUR ETERNITY DEPENDS ON IT. Their is no deception in Christ, and if you Walk with Him, and Obey Him, you will not fall for deception. Satan couldn't deceive Christ, and in Christ, he can't deceive you. The closer you Walk with Christ, the less you will be deceived by your own lusts. Examine yourself, is ALL of your theology found in Christ? Is EVERYTHING you believe found in His Word, in the context He said it? If not, cast your deception aside, clean out any lust from your heart, and, Be Blessed.
