False Teachers And Their Destruction




"But there were also false prophets among the people,
just as there will be false teachers among you.
They will secretly introduce destructive heresies,
even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them-
bringing swift destruction on themselves.
Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring
the way of truth into disrepute.
In their greed these teachers will exploit you with
stories they have made up.
Their condemnation has long been hanging over
them, and their destruction has not been sleeping."

2Peter 2: 1-3


These are the end times and we are seeing the widespread works of the enemy throughout the world. The word of God is vilified and in its place, various teachings and pseudo doctrines abound the world, misleading even intelligent men. Some of their misleading teachings are reincarnation, bogus philosophies, strange doctrines that cater to the innate desire of man to live the so called good life. This is just hedonism sugar coated with so many fine words. We are shocked by the temerity and total disregard for the sanctity of life by so called suicide bombers who kill innocent people and themselves as well. Even women are being used as suicide bombers. What kind of philosophy or teaching can condone the taking of one's own life just to kill and maim other lives? Many people bow down to the lord of the world who keeps foisting his attractive lures and baits as people are led down the path to their own destruction. Many people are lukewarm, saying they believe in God and just stop there while also wallowing in the sinfulness of the world. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them and their destruction has not been sleeping.

Hi teJan,
Yes, we should have a discerning spirit to discern the Spirit of God as against those masquerading spirits that mislead people astray, even the elect. Thanks for appreciating the worship video. Thanks also for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Mel,

You're so true. The world is completely full of heresies at the moment. The power of the church seems to be declining unfortunately. In the west many people don't even believe in God. The decadence here is more or less what it used to be 2000 years ago or worse. Christianity is being hounded out of the public space like never before. It really does seem like the time of great apostasy. I think only in Africa and some parts of Asia are people coming to Christ. We already have the weapons to wipe out mankind, and if we're not careful we might end up using them. Our annihilation could come sooner than we think!

Hi JI,
Your comments are all so true. It is sad to see people putting up their own kinds of ideologies and beliefs in place of the word of God. Whatever happens, Biblical prophecies will come to pass and those who pass up their chance for salvation will rue their recalcitrant ways. Yes, the Book of 2nd Peter speaks of the annihilation of the world through fire where the elements will be melted. Whether this event will be brought about by worldwide nuclear explosions or by asteroids or meteors bombarding the earth, only God knows the exact details. We hope and pray that people will accept the offer of salavation by Jesus Christ now before it is too late. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you always.

I think this is the most dangerous thing for a Christian to be- lukewarm.
The wolves target these lukewarm people first.

Hi Kiran,
I agree with you 100%. The Lord said in Revelation 3:16, "So, because you are lukewarm- neither hot nor cold-- I am about to spit you out of my mouth." These people have become complacent in the security of their salvation but because they did not value the eternal treasure bestowed upon them by the Lord but backslided to their former sinful ways, the Lord will shut the door of heaven to them and will not let them enter in at the last days. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
