For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. (2 Corinthians 11:13 NKJV)
And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works (2 Corinthians 11:14 – 11:15 NKJV)
Deceitful workers who transform themselves into apostles of Christ have always been in existence from the days of the Apostles. They are not new. You would expect that believers are aware of this and are careful whom they listen to or follow. Unfortunately, many so called believers don’t care. All they want is someone that will tickle their ears and fulfill their every desire. They are just like wives that never believe their husband is enough. Those wives go outside to look for money and pleasure from other men – terrible. They are dishonest and false wives and they hide to do their cheating and deception.
True believers never look for a substitute spiritual bridegroom. They never look for substitute doctrines, spirits and Christ’s to fulfill false desires. Their primary desire in life is pleasing Christ. They are faithful wives and virgins who do not focus on their needs and desires but on the desires of the bridegroom. They have not forgotten their first love and they live to please Him.
Because they live to please Christ, and are constantly searching the Scriptures like the Berean believers, they have a thorough understanding of Scripture and do not follow every wind of shifting doctrine calculated and introduced by Satan himself through his apostles and ministers to deceive the elect if possible.
But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Revelation 2:4
False believers are among us today but they are scammers scamming scammers, thieves catching thieves, the dead worshipping the dead and blind men leading the blind. Beware of false apostles and be loyal, sincere, faithful and dedicated to Christ your first love.
If you are seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness first, false apostles will not catch you like a fish but if you are seeking mammon and material things first, then you have exposed yourself and left yourself vulnerable and exposed.
May God give us the grace to always seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness first.
