“Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,
but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.”
I have not been shy in stating that once I find wolves I will sound the alarm. Here is a clear description of wolves in sheep’s clothing in the words of Jesus Christ,
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which indeed appear beautiful outwardly, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness.”
The LORD detests liars (I encountered one yesterday) and fakers. Being that we are truly at the door of His return, we would be wise to heed the warning in 2 Timothy 3:13,
“But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
A strong indicator that we are in the last days is the increase of deception. Lying is speaking the enemy’s native tongue (John 8:44) and is deeply offensive to the Holy Spirit.
“I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name. 9 Indeed I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews and are not, but lie—indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. 10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.”
Jesus Christ makes a promise to the faithful church- those who truly belong to Him, that they will be kept from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world. The passage also mentions that there are those who claim to be believers but are liars for which Jesus refers to as congregants in the “synagogue of Satan” (verse 9). If they do not repent and continue to abuse God’s grace and mercy, they will be disqualified from His promise.
Truth can never coexist with lies. Lies have a way of undermining the truth.
Make use of this time of grace to make sure you are truly in the faith.
