Wolves in Sheep Clothing
Watch out for that wolf he is in sheep clothing!
I like this graphic below I seen on Facebook. I am unsure who created this graphic, but I felt led to share it. This uses a good reference to show you even the devil knows Word of God an how to twist it to sound like you are doing good but aren’t. We need to watch out for those false teachings. A False teachers is known as wolves in sheep clothing.
It might not be obvious! This wolf will look like a sheep and try to act like a sheep to fool you.
Below is how Matthew 7:15 is read in The New King James Version:
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”
That is why it is a good idea to check for yourself what your pastor says, what you learn in Bible studies, what you read on the internet, what you hear on TV or the radio or even what your friends or family may tell you. Read your Bible and Study your Bible so you can watch out for false teachings. They will look like they are of God, but they are not. Remember Satan knows all about God and the Bible. He will use it to mislead you to think you are following God.
We have too many sugar coated gospels. Too many pastors or people sharing the gospel that are afraid to tell you some stuff. You have others that are all on prosperity. And many other types. They preach only what you want to hear, not what you need to hear. They will make you think you are doing just fine, when truthfully we aren’t. We cannot do anything without Christ. He is our strength. He is the one that covers us with His righteousness.
So Study! Stay in the Word so you can spot a false teacher(s) any of the Wolves in sheep clothing!
