“He That Cometh”
II Corinthians 11:4
What Will He Look Like?
What Will He Say? Can you believe that it’s over 2000
years since Jesus walked the earth? Remember all the
talk about the end of the age coming with the turn of
the century? A lot of folks have said a lot of things
about the future and what each New Year will bring. What
is in store for us? Will our lives be full of sunshine
or plagued with continual rain? Some pastors give their
annual message as though it were a forecast of God’s
will for the upcoming year.
The Bible is a safe guard
careful about what others say concerning the future.
Their opinions do not make it so. What they think or say
is not necessarily the truth. The only real guide to
knowing the future is the Word of God. That is, the
Bible. But be forewarned that the angels of darkness can
and will transform themselves into angels of light for
the very purpose of deceiving the elect. This means that
we should not trust in prophets, pastors, Sunday school
teachers, evangelists or even an angel that might appear
in a dream or vision, without first looking at the Bible
as a safe guard against deception and error.
apostle, wrote to the church at Corinth, in his 2nd
epistle, and warned it about such things. He said, II
Corinthians 11:4, “For if he that cometh preaches
another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye
receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or
another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might
well bear with him” Now look at 11: 13-15, “ For such
are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming
themselves into the apostles of Christ. And marvel not:
for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore it is no great thing that his ministers also
be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose
end shall be according to their works.”
It seems to me
that the biggest problem in the modern church is that of
deception. It is deceived into thinking things that will
ultimately have no eternal value, that will glorify the
flesh, slow down or stop the real work of the Spirit and
cripple the walk of faith in the believer. This is what
those ministers of darkness that appear as light do.
They lead us astray from the reality of the Word and the
value of the personal relationship with Christ. They
keep us from genuine experiences in the Holy Ghost.
look at the Book
A look at the Book, the Bible, will
stop all that stuff from happening and clear our heads
from all the satanic traffic. It is here that we are
forewarned and become on guard against the attack. It is
here where we learn what weapons are at our disposal and
how to use them in real life situations. It is here that
we discover the real gospel, the touch of the Holy
Spirit and the closeness of Christ in every situation.
It is here that we grow in grace and become strong in
How many of you can identify the “he that cometh”
when he comes? What does “he” look like? What will “he”
say? We know that “he” will appear as a friend, a
minister of light. We know “he” will operate in another
spirit that is not the Holy Spirit. We know that “he”
will be sharing another gospel that we did not
originally accept. Who is this allusive “he”? Could it
be your mother, your sister, your pastor, your neighbor,
your best friend, or your special hero that you look up
to? We need only to stop and listen to what is being
said and hold it in the light of the Scriptures. Those
who speak in opposition to what we believe are
anti-Christ’s, gainsayers and deceivers, no mater who
they are. From such, turn away.
Each New Year holds
mystery, intrigue, warfare, and conflict. It will be a
time of defeat for some and of victory for others. The
deciding factor is found in a look in the book, the
Bible and the application of all its truth and wisdom.
Feel free to listen to all who prophesy or teach on
coming events, and hold every word in light of your look
into the pages of the Bible. The Spirit of God is more
than capable to lead you into all truth and set you free
from the deception of evil spirits, misguided people and
false doctrine. All you need to do is Look At The Book
and hold on to every word.
Until next time
