They Are Pretenders, They Are Not Christians 

2 Timothy 2_19.png

Visions, Revelations and Messages

In this vision the Lord took me into a Church. In that Church, I saw some of the people that write awful things and comments on social media. They were part of the congregation. These were people that openly supported and urged the killing of people that were not of the same tribe, race, ideology, religion and belief system like themselves. I was very shocked to see them in Church and I exclaimed, “ Lord, are these not the same people that openly support and encourage the killing of people who are different from them on social media!”

The Lord replied me and said, “don’t mind them – they are pretenders, they are not Christians.” I was very shocked and came out of the vision. If you really think about this you will realize that no true Christian will support any form of injustice or killing. My spirit was shocked because I could not reconcile their words and actions with their presence in Church as Christians. But the Lord eased my confusion with clarity and truth – they are not Christians. 

He said “don’t mind them” because He does not want us to pay attention to their words, actions and works and be confused, deceived or discouraged. 

Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.” 2 Timothy 2:19 

Brethren, the Lord truly knows the pretenders and the real, the true and the false, the original and the fake, the authentic and the counterfeit. He knows those who are His and who belong to Him. If you live your life in hatred and still believe that you are a Christian, then I feel very, very sorry for you. 

Do you know why? It is because that is the worst form of self deception and it is the type that leads to death, hell and the grave. Heaven and Hell are very real and unfortunately, some people who think that they are Christians simply because they mention, mouth and do lip service to the name of Christ will be deceived and disappointed. 

They will go to hell if they don’t repent and it won’t be God’s fault. That is the word of the Lord. God did not disappoint them – they disappointed themselves with hatred. God’s grace is greater than sin and hatred and it is available. The only thing we need to do now is to choose love and reject evil and hatred. 

Our fruits and works will always be an evidence of what we believe and worship. It does not make sense hiding under the canopy of Christianity and misusing the name of Christ yet be full of the worst form of abomination, wickedness, evil, greed and hatred – it does not make any sense. No amount of hiding, pretense and self deception will save us from judgement. God sees every form of pretense by man. He wants every man to be saved but we must choose good and reject evil. 

The heart of man is very wicked and deceitful. We have to constantly pray against every form of self deception. 

What I took away from this vision is that:

  1. The Lord knows those who are pretenders and that word He called them is very effective in conveying the true nature of these supposed Christians.
  2. It is possible to believe that you are a Christian, yet you are not a Christian but a pretender.
  3. Anyone who calls the name of the Lord must keep away from hatred and sin. He must hate hatred and evil in order to be a real Christian instead of a pretender.
  4. Christian means Christlike so it is great folly to be Satan-like, devil-like and demon-like and claim Christianity.
  5. Christianity is not a label or tag – it is a way of life that manifests itself and bears fruits. Wisdom is known by its fruits. 

May God’s great grace be upon us and lead us always. May we always bear fruits to the glory of God. Amen.

  1. Hmm very convicting and powerful vision you received there. Daily I repent and thirst after the Lord’s righteousness. I really don’t want to fall into that category of false Christianity. I really, really don’t. It aches my heart so bad when I think about it.
    All honour and glory to The King of righteousness! <3
    Blessings to you mighty warrior of God!

  2. Amen, many people will say they are Christians, but as persecution increases globally, only the unshakable, genuine brothers and sisters of the faith will remain. It is the sad truth, but as long as there is life, there is still hope for everyone. Our job is to simply love everyone, even those who pretend, or those whose faith only brings them so far. God bless!

  3. Powerful! The True Bride is coming forth. She is beautiful and powerful in Christ. The Cultural “Church” is falling away and Holy Spirit is exposing the false pretenders. May we seek His glory to be known above all else and the world to know Christ in intimate fellowship.

      Amen. Such wonderful words and prayer.

      The True Bride is coming forth. She is beautiful and powerful in Christ. The Cultural “Church” is falling away and Holy Spirit is exposing the false pretenders.

      The Spirit and the bride say,” Come Lord Jesus.” Lord, let your bride be resplendent and full of your beauty and glory. 🙏❤️

    Amen!! Amen!! We as the children of God must continue teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ as He has command us to do so. God knows the hearts of every man and woman. We all will stand before Him on that day of Judgment Day. Let us pray that they will ((Repent)) and turn from thier wickedness just as Saul did who is now Paul. Thank you for sharing this message. God Bless you!! The Lord had brought this to me this morning: Being a Christ follower is not merely an identification with Him; it’s a commitment of obedience that demands leaving behind anything that get in the way of living fully for Him.” \0/\0/ ((Hugs)) 🙂

    • laurabon says:

      Thank you so much for the beautiful and informative contribution. I really love the way you expressed it.

      “Being a Christ follower is not merely an identification with Him; it’s a commitment of obedience that demands leaving behind anything that get in the way of living fully for Him.”

      Jesus Himself said that it is not those who say, “Lord Lord” but those who do the will of His Father. I pray that pretenders repent and live a life of commitment, dedication and obedience to the will of God. I also pray for more souls to be birthed into the Kingdom of God.

      Blessings to you always, sister in Christ.🙏❤️👏

    Jesus knew all along that many pretenders will infiltrate the ranks of true believers. We must always remember Jesus’ words we are ” l send you out as sheep among wolves”. Thanks

    • laurabon says:

      Thank you so much my friend, for the insightful and wise words. So true, Jesus knew all along that pretenders will infiltrate the ranks of true believers. He even warned us. Grace, blessings and peace to you always 🙏❤️

  10. These are very sobering thoughts that must be shared more often than they are. Thank you for addressing the parts of Scripture that many want to avoid.

    • laurabon says:
