BE NOT DECEIVED

2 John:7  ” Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.”

Acts Chapter 22:12-13   Tells of an Ananias who was a devout observer of the Law, a pious man  (the name means “Yahweh has been gracious”). Another man with the same name,  Ananias, in  Acts was a deceiver:  Read vv.1-2. 

So it is with our lives; everything is not necessarily as it appears to our human eyes. We are called to be careful of what we observe.  Believers in Jesus the Christ (Messiah) and in His true Word have been given the Holy Spirit, living inside us, to guide us and  to give right understanding, to not be deceived by the evil one.  If we listen to the Holy Spirit, deception cannot enter into our minds.

At first glance, the picture may look like a flag with a star burst in the center, or maybe, a flag with a gaping hole in it.  Or it might be a broken window or something else imagined.

Galatians 6:7-8  “Do not be deceived:  God cannot be mocked.  A man reaps what he sows.  The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please his Spirit, from the Spirit, will reap eternal life.”
