Watch Out

Matthew 7:15 Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

Eve was deceived by the devil in the Garden of Eden.  Deception is a tool of the deceiver.  Even with our sinful nature, few people will partake of forbidden fruit without deception.  John urged his readers in his First Epistle to test the spirits.  Jesus warns his followers in Matthew 7:15 to be on guard against false prophets .How do false prophets come?  They do not come announcing their heresy but they come dressed in religious clothing.  They look the part, but their heart is not anchored in Jesus.  How can we be on guard?  We can be on guard by reading God's word.  We can be like the Bereans in Act 17:11 who search the Scriptures to discover the truth.  Are you on guard against false prophets?
