39 And the Lord said to him, "You Pharisees make the outside of the cup and the platter clean, but your inward part is full of greed and lusts [ravening] and wickedness. [Everyone's heart must be purged from sin by the grace of God that mortifies the sin within you, providing you seek to hear Him guide you and then obey Him. Jesus said, For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lack of restraint, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, and foolishness. All these evil things come from within a man and defile him. Mark 7:21-23. ]
15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.8 [ — self-appointed ministers posing as authorized by Christ who solicit your money and Lord it over you. Christendom's ministers are the false prophets Jesus warns about. Deceiving billions, they promise heaven to anyone who believes, ignoring salvation's stated exclusions, requirements, and qualifying conditions. When you see how Christendom is nothing but Babylon, you will be both sad and angry: Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own imagination, 'Hear the word of the LORD,' Because they have seduced my people saying, 'Peace!' when there is no peace... you have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom I have not made sad, and have strengthened the hands of the wicked, so that he does not return from his wicked way, by (falsely) promising him life. Eze 13:2,10,22.]
|Acts 20:29-31 |
29 For I know that after my departing savage wolves will enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
30 Also will men arise from among your own selves, speaking distorted things, to draw away disciples after them.
31 Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease warning everyone night and day with tears.
