“They’re a sorry bunch—pseudo-apostles, lying preachers, crooked workers—posing as Christ’s agents but sham to the core. And no wonder! Satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light. So it shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. But they’re not getting by with anything. They’ll pay for it in the end” (2 Cor 11: 13-15; TM)
Recently, the Holy Spirit exposed a web of deceit in our church. It was well covered. It was professionally designed to last forever. We were deceived. But not God. The Word of God is sharper than two edged sword. It penetrates and divides. God knows no limits. God is not a respecter of any person. Any structure of biter envy, selfish ambition, pride, hypocrisy or religious sham shall be exposed and none can cover it! I counsel you to pray until there is an answer! Let God have His way! Let God take the glory!
This is the truth as revealed in the scriptures. The devil sends his agents to the churches. He trains his workers to be successful deceivers. Some are easy to detect but some are very good at their evil trade. Their strategy is to infiltrate, pollute and weaken the believers with lies, false doctrines, rebellion and doubt. All successful liars are also skillful manipulators. A manipulator is a master deceiver. Thru lies or other evil means a manipulator tries to take control over his victim for his own advantage. The following is a general description of a deceiver, a manipulator or a religious liar. Meditate and pray about all this! It may save your life…
A manipulator is skillful. He is intelligent. He knows his trade and he knows the weakness of his victims. He speaks with confidence when he lies. He does not feel shame and his conscience do not bother him. That is his advantage. You may confuse this boldness with the true confidence of a mature believer. It is not the same at all. He knows that everybody needs some help or a word of kindness. So he comes as a friend or as a humble servant. He wants to visit you at home. He brings gifts. But he is a spy for the devil. He studies you to gain some knowledge about your weaknesses. He will come in the way you expect a friend to come. If you are a Christian, most of the time he will come thru the church. You will see him praying, quoting scriptures, singing in the choir or saying that he is available to listen to your pain. Slowly, he builds an emotional bridge, a soul tie of confidence so that you trust and accept him. Most women think that if a man or woman attends the church, does ministry, prays or cares to listen to their troubles, that one is a true believer. It is not true! There are many liars and false brethren who mingle among the true believers. The church is a mixed multitude. Like the wheat and the tares, they grow together for some time. But God knows them all and He shall separate them at harvest time. As the fire burns the tares, the wicked shall be punished at last.
In Christ I declare:
The Word of God is my final standard!
I submit to the Word of God!
I reject all lies and manipulations!
I separate from any agents of the devil!
In Jesus name
