In the Last Days: For there shall arise false Christs, false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24
Keep your eye upon those who cause dissension and hindrances contrary to the teaching, and turn away from them. Romans 16:17
You gladly put up with fools since you are so wise! In fact you even put up with anyone who enslaves you or exploits you or takes advantage of you or puts on airs and slaps you in the face. 2 Corinthians 11:19,20
For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not a surprising, then if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
Paul stated many ministers are in it for the money, teaching what one likes to hear, no conviction, no repentance.
Unlike many we do not peddle the Word for a profit. 2 Corinthians 2:17
Here these verses teach of false Christians and false ministers in the Last Days.
You must understand this: In the last days there will be violent periods of time. People will be (selfish) and (love money). They will brag and be arrogant and use abusive language. They will curse their parents, show no gratitude, and have no respect for what is holy, and lack of normal affection for their families. They will refuse to make peace with anyone. They will be slanderous, lack of self control, be brutal, and have no love for what is good. They will be traitors. They will be reckless and conceited. They will love pleasure rather than God. They will appear to have a Godly life, but they will not let its power change them. Stay away from such people.
Some of these men go into homes and mislead weak minded women who are burdened with sins and led by all kinds of desires. These women are studying but never able to recognize the truth. As Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men oppose the truth. Their minds are corrupt, the faith they teach is counterfeit. 2 Timothy 3:1-8
Dear friends, stop believing every spirit. Instead test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1
How ca one do this? By standing firm on the Word of God, we must compare what is being taught against the Bible. There is only one Bible, no others, no extra add on bibles or scriptures. No other theologies.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15
Let no one in any way deceive you, for it (Rapture) will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction." (the Antichrist) 2 Thessalonians 2:3
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals. 1 Corinthians 6:9
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22
As we see in the scriptures, we are to read and study the Word of God, and to compare it to what is being taught. We are not of this world but of the Kingdom of Heaven. We are not here to teach and adhere to political correctness or social correctness. We are here to preach the Gospel and lead others in the truths of God. Many have become so attached to this world, they have put the Word of God on a shelf, instead of studying the Word, they like the ear tickling sermons of a charismatic speaker, or a good looking teacher. Many are following false teachers, sending them the money God has given them hoping for a blessing. Many adhering to the distorted Word of God. We must believe what God says He means and He never changes. As the scriptures are written we are to teach and adhere to. We are not to alter the Word of God to suit humanity, but teach the truth for humanity to serve God.
