Msg #2125 The Lies of False Teachers
What The Bible Says
Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice
At the close of his life, just before he is killed by Roman Emperor Nero, the Apostle Peter warns about false teachers. “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,...and bring upon themselves swift destruction. ” (2Pet 2:1). In chapter one Peter clarified that the lies and falsehoods are defeated through 1) the knowledge of God, 2) giving all diligence add to your faith... and 3) knowing the more sure word of prophecy, God's Word. Peter brings up the false prophets for our learning. Let's learn. In Numbers 12 Miriam and Aaron rose up against Moses and God judged them. In Numbers 16 Korah did, and God killed him.
False prophets misled Ahab and “Jumping Jehoshaphat”, who jumped into bed with him, said, “Is there not here a prophet of the LORD besides, that we might enquire of him?” (1Kings 22:7). That prophet, Micaiah, through a genuine portal into heaven, gives remarkable insight about false prophets. “And there came forth a spirit, ... and said, I will persuade (Ahab), ... I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And (the LORD) said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so” (22:21-22).
That same lying spirit is downright hyperactive in 2021, persuading men that black lives matter more, that Abraham Lincoln was a racist bigot, that borders should be open, that killing babies is a civil right, and even that choosing ones gender is a civil right! You can't make this stuff up, it would be unbelievable! The Christian is warned, “God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie... evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. … But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;... Keep yourselves in the love of God,... have compassion, ...with fear, pulling them out of the fire...” (2Thes 2:11-12, 2Tim 3:13, Jude 1:17-23). Let's be about the Father's business; in 2021 preach Acts 2021 because of John 2021. God bless your efforts for Him.
