The Last Days

The Bible is clear that not only in the last days, but also since from along time ago people did heap to themselves teachers who will only tell them good things, and not the truth of what God says!! The Apostle Paul told Timothy.....

2Ti 4:2 Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.
2Ti 4:3 FOR A TIME IS COMING WHEN PEOPLE WILL NO LONGER LISTEN TO SOUND AND WHOLESOME TEACHING. THEY WILL FOLLOW THEIR OWN DESIRES AND WILL LOOK FOR TEACHERS WHO WILL TELL THEM WHATEVER THEIR ITCHING EARS WANT TO HEAR.
2TI 4:4 THEY WILL REJECT THE TRUTH AND CHASE AFTER MYTHS.

This also happened in the Old Testament when the Prophets of God spoke to the people.....

Isa 30:9 that these people are stubborn rebels who REFUSE TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE LORD'S INSTRUCTIONS.
Isa 30:10 THEY TELL THE SEERS, "STOP SEEING VISIONS!" THEY TELL THE PROPHETS, "DON'T TELL US WHAT IS RIGHT. TELL US NICE THINGS. TELL US LIES. (NLT)

The prophets in the Old Testament were called “seers” because they had visions, and what they saw they spoke about through prophesying. The people not only back then, but even now today really don't want to know the truth of God's Word as the Holy Spirit reveals it, they would rather listen to “LIES” that sound “NICE”. A logical analogical Gospel is easy to understand, because it only operates within mans fleshly carnal mind because that is what man knows the best. It will always sound nice to our physical ears, but revelation knowledge always sounds foolish to the un renewed mind. We must always remember deceivers use a lot of truth, but add lies to capture their prey. A little "leaven" leavens the whole lump.

1Co 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: FOR THEY ARE FOOLISHNESS UNTO HIM: NEITHER CAN HE KNOW THEM, BECAUSE THEY ARE SPIRITUALLY DISCERNED. (KJV)

The Apostle Paul prays to God to fill his Church with “spiritual understanding”, which is NOT the same as logical, analytical understanding. The two are not the same thing!!

Col 1:9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that YE MIGHT BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL IN ALL WISDOM AND SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING;

As it was in the Old Testament, so will it be in the last days when there will come false teachers, and prophets who will do “miracles”, and great “wonders”. They will prophesy, and what they prophesy will come to pass, but this is not proof that they are of God.

Deu 13:1 “If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder,
Deu 13:2 and THE SIGN OR WONDER THAT HE TELLS YOU COMES TO PASS, and if he says, ‘LET US GO AFTER OTHER GODS,’ WHICH YOU HAVE NOT KNOWN, ‘AND LET US SERVE THEM,’
Deu 13:3 YOU SHALL NOT LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF THAT PROPHET OR THAT DREAMER OF DREAMS. FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS TESTING YOU, TO KNOW WHETHER YOU LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL. (ESV)

How can we be sure of what we are hearing is really from God?

1John 4:6 We belong to God. And those who know God listen to us. But those who don't belong to God don't listen to us. THAT'S HOW WE CAN TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH AND THE SPIRIT OF LIES.
