False Christs  and False Prophets  Will Arise

It’s appalling  to see  how so many people  have been bamboozled  into following  “false Christs  and false prophets”  over the years.     In Mark 13:22-23  our Lord  strongly warned us  about them,  saying,

For false Christs  and false prophets  will arise,  and will show  signs  and wonders,  in order,  if possible,  to lead  the elect  astray.     But take heed;  behold,  I have told you everything  in advance.

Even though Jesus sternly warned us,  many have not heeded  His warning.     They fall  for the  “false Christs  and false prophets”  because they don’t  read  or believe  God’s word  in the Bible.     They have been convinced  that there are  added new prophecies  that take precedent  over all  of God’s proven  eternal word.     So,  they imagine  that their salvation  depends  upon these  “false Christs  and false prophets”,  who have actually  been shown  to be liars  and extortioners.

None  of these  “false Christs  and false prophets”  has ever been able  to validate  their authority  about their preaching.     But,  all  of Jesus’  life,  ministry,  suffering,  death,  and resurrection  has been validated  by  the fulfilled prophecies  regarding His life.     The prophecies  of the false prophets  have failed  to come true,  but their followers  have been blinded  to those facts.

The death  of a false prophet  is of no value  to us,  because Psalm 49:7-8  tells us,

No man  can by any means  redeem  his brother,
Or give  to God  a ransom  for him —
For the redemption  of his soul  is costly,
And he should cease  trying forever —
That he should live  on eternally;
That he should not  see the pit.

But,  regarding  the true Savior,  Christ Jesus,  the following excerpts  from Isaiah 53  testify,

Verses 5-6
But He was pierced through  for our transgressions,
He was crushed  for our iniquities;
The chastening  for our well-being  fell  upon Him,
And by His scourging  we are healed.
All  of us  like sheep  have gone astray,
Each  of us  has turned  to his own way;
But  the LORD  has caused  the iniquity  of us all
To fall  on Him.

Verse 8
That He was cut off  out of the land  of the living,
For the transgression  of my people  to whom  the stroke  was due.

Verse 12
Yet He Himself  bore the sin  of many,
And interceded  for the transgressors.

No false prophet  or false Christ  has ever  been  the fulfillment  of a prophecy like Psalm 22:16-18,

For dogs  have surrounded me;
A band  of evildoers  has encompassed me;
They pierced  my hands  and my feet.
I can count  all my bones.
They look,  they stare  at me;
They divide  my garments  among them,
And for my clothing  they cast lots.

Since God Almighty  has obviously  provided  more than enough evidence  to validate  Christ Jesus  as our one-and-only Savior,  and His word  as the word  that can be trusted,  it only makes sense  to turn away  from all those  who preach  anything  not in full accord  with God’s every word  and doctrine,  just as it stands  in the Bible.

God’s love  has provided  His eternal truths  for us  in the Bible.     Let us accept  God’s love  as He gives it to us there,  and say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  let us  really  ‘grow  in the grace  and knowledge  of our Lord and Savior  Jesus Christ’  through Your eternal word.”

Love,
Margaret
