Fear as cover for False Teaching

Fear is like a foggy moonless night.

Fear is the cover of darkness that the enemy uses to infiltrate the church with false teaching and deception. Once inside the walls, false teachers spread a false gospel among the flock – beginning with the “least of these” children and the spiritually immature.

These false teachers are wolves in sheep’s clothing. They have the appearance of light and with smooth tongues and deceptive ways, they create divisions and lead the weak away into falsehood and bondage.

To the false teachers, the watchman warns, “Oh that you who causes one of the little ones who love God to sin… you are anathema.”

To the city of God, the watchman cries out, “The enemy is approaching under the cover of darkness – take your stations and close the gate!”

To the wolves – the sheepdog has apprehend the scent of your falsehoods, wicked schemes and bad fruit. He has tracked you down. You have choice; flee from the sheep fold or he will drag you out.  Wolves and false teachers can run with the hunted… You have been put on notice.  You ought to leave the fold before you are exposed.  Or repent.

Remember, those who’s hearts are dark love the darkness. At this moment in history a virus and social unrest have created much fear inside and outside the church. Fear can be blinding. Fear can be wielded by Satan in order to deceive, divide and destroy. Like an enemy platoon that advances on its target at night or a lion that stalks its pray in darkness; false teachers use the cover of fear to spread their lies. However, we know that fear is NOT a fruit of the Spirit.  Christian, give fear no quarter – keep watch.

The time has come to dispel the darkness of fear with the light of true truth. Christ stands champion over the darkness and will hold everyone accountable in His light.

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.” – Matthew 18:6

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire…” – Matthew 7:15-20
