Scripture Reading: Matthew 7: 15-23

Verse 15: Beware of false prophets…in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.

The Bible tells us that the devil is in the business of imitating God. His goal is “to be like the Most High” (Isaiah 14: 12-15). Through deception, satan tries to replace Christ with a substitute. Jesus Himself warned us of false prophets and false christs: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My Name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.”

How can we tell the real Christ from the counterfeit? The only authentic Christ is the one described in Holy Scriptures. Anyone or anything that portrays a different Jesus than the One presented in the Bible is promoting “a donkey in lion’s clothing.”

“God’s  Word gives wisdom to discern what is false.”
