Are you being deceived by the god of this world’s attempts to whitewash the Truth of God?
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 KJV)
Deception is a sham or scheme to purport outright lies as truth. This is one of the devil’s favorite rouses to confuse and twist God’s Word capturing the attention of those who are not overtly familiar with His Word. There are many out in the world today professing to represent Christ but are far removed from the actual Truth of God’s Word.
Taking heed is paying close or particular attention to what is filtering into your ears and trickling down into your heart. Many Christians are biblically uninformed today allowing the lies of the god of this world to infiltrate into their mind often compromising truths of God buried in their heart. Lies are planted to weaken the Truth in an attempt by the god of this world to minimalize the spread of the gospel message; but God’s Word never abates but is often suppressed by man’s choice.
The best recourse for not being swayed into believing the lies of the god of this world is to be intimately familiar with God’s Word.
The Bible says:
Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. (Psalms 119:11KJV)
