#Refuse to be deceived
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #1:
When people don’t have personal relationship with Jesus Christ but are comfortable with using elements like: water, oil, salt etc that are provided for them by their charlatan pastors to appease the strange god they do not know. They will prefer to have deep intimate with their so called men of ‘God’ rather that than to have direct communication with their Heavenly Father. This is the reason they are contented and enjoys calling on a third-party god, the god of their pastors.
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #2:
They will prefer to Exalt [praising, glorifying] the men of ‘God’ more than they praise the One who laid down His Life for their redemption – Jesus Christ.
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #3:
….the ‘God’ of “My Pastor” phenomenon….
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #4:
The [abuse] and mis-context of the ‘twins’; “do not judge” and “touch not the anointed” They do not know or realize that God was not referring to Moses and Aaron alone, but the whole congregation of Israelites (1Chronicles 16:22; Psalm 105:15).
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #5:
Fights and follows Staged [rehearsed] miracles and ‘prophesies’
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #7:
The syndrome of regarding one gift of the Spirit or office of ministry superior than the others.
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION # 8:
“I don’t care what [he/she] does behind, but God is using him/her mightily”
We will know them by fruits not by gifts.
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #9:
The so called ‘Deep Revelations’ that contradict the Logos [written Word] and those without biblical references.
[The Spirit and the Bible are one]
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #10:
Paying homage to angels.
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #11:
Helping God by believing that the name of Jesus (Philippians 2:8-9) is not enough but you need to have some mediums [anointed elements stuffs].
The Bible record usage of mediums but it was not a doctrine and was never sold.
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #12
My church, My congregation, My sheep Syndrome “Nobody who leaves [my] church/ministry succeed where they go.”
Some people are afraid to leave some ministries/ churches because they have been told that they will be cursed..
[The church of the LORD is not a secret cult] RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #13:
Paying money to be prayed for; healing, deliverance, special prayers, seeing /meeting a man of ‘God’ etc.
Freely you have received, freely you must give.
For the gifts of YHWH can not be bought by money.
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #14:
“I was born already baptized with the Holy Spirit in the womb. “
Run away from such people!
SYMPTOMS OF DECEPTION #15:
The miracle money phenomenon.
Our Father in heaven is not a magician please take note! And when the foundation of your relationship with God is based on your physical needs, you will suffer in the hands of Charlatans.
SYMPTOMS of DECEPTION conclusion:
Deception is real and spreading like wild fire. The author of Deception is the devil and he has human agents around us. The target is men not animals. The purpose is to attack the people of God from within the church. The enemy within is lethal than enemy without. Please, whenever you go to Church or gathering of the saints, do not forget your brains at home.
Please, Don’t be hungry for the manifestation of Spirit, be hungry for YHWH and His Word of Truth.
Be reminded that we are commanded to test every spirits and believe not anything that looks spiritual.[1 John 4:1]. If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.
We ought to know that both YHWH and satan operates in the spiritual; and if you don’t allow the Holy Spirit to guide you, you can be led astray.
Every gift of The Spirit is subject to counterfeiting, that’s why we have the gift of discernment of spirits.
Every Shepherd must be on guard against deception by teaching the flock the ways of the Spirit.
Every sheep should learn how to test every ‘pasture’ that looks edible.
But How to the spirits???
WHEN THE CHURCH BECOMES A BUSINESS
1) Pastors function like CEOs
2) Members are turned into customers
3) Other churches are seen as competitors
4) Evangelism is reduced to marketing
5) Church planting looks more like franchising
6) Numbers are primary measure of success
7) Prayer and Word study are replaced by formulas
8) Revival is reduced to fund-raising
9) Preaching sounds more like motivational speech.
All the people do is shout “I receive, Amen,” throughout the concert. I mean the “service”.
10) Praise and Worship is turned into a
performance. The best actors are made the worship
and praise leaders.
11) The Spirit of God is reduced to “emotionalism”.
No real power of God other than hypnosis and
12) The goats are entertained instead of equipping the saints
13) Disciples of Christ have become papa’s sons,
daughters and fans.
14) The Church, a living Body has now become a
15) A leader’s empire is built instead of the
Kingdom of God advancement.
16) The pastor becomes the super man and Jesus
Christ reduced to just another religious figure.
Does any one of these sound farmiliar in this
generation? Beloved, if you are under these pattern
of “christianity” you are already in a cult, not the
Church of Jesus Christ. Get out before it is too
All I have highlighted above is exactly what made
Jesus Himself to ask:
“When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith in
