WITCHCRAFT HAS INFILTRATED the church. I am charismatic, I operated in the gifts of the Spirit. I speak in tongues and prophecy. There is a spiritual realm, angelic and demonic. But everything is not a demon. The flesh of most is out of control, discipline and self-control are lacking and the Word of God is under attack and lawlessness is prevalent among God’s people.
Preachers tickle itching ears. So much false prophecy being circulated and people saying, “Thus sayeth the Lord!” deceiving the hearts of the simple. People claiming the truth are receiving another spirit and another gospel. If the spirit you have received does not make you holy; it is not the Holy Spirit, but another. A counterfeit move of the Spirit has infiltrated God’s people. His people do not know His ways, they only know their own ways.
There is a counterfeit gospel- a counterfeit spirit. It wants its own way. It seeks its own pleasure. It is greedy and full of lusts. It is full of deceit. His gospel produces righteousness. His gospel produces holiness and humility. Grace teaches godliness. Deception has been let loose and even the elect believe the lie. We are told that the latter days will be full of lies and lawlessness, “But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” II Timothy 3:13 This word “imposters” is translated in the Greek as: “seducer, as a wizard muttering a spell”.
Seducers look real and sounds good and nice, but they are counterfeit! Do not fall under the spell. We are told how to combat this deception: the Holy Scriptures, which make us wise unto salvation and are “profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness”. The only way to make it through this fog of deception is to hold fast to the Word of God. Stand far away from lawlessness. Run boldly to the throne of grace.
Cling to like-minded Christians. “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.” Titus 2:11-15 #runyourrace
