Daily Devotional: False Brethren Abound Among Us
TOPIC: False Brethren Abound Among Us
Memory verse: And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:Galatians 2:4 KJV
Read: Galatians 2:4-5 4 And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage: 5 To whom we gave place by subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you.
Be reminded this morning that we are living in the end times and this current dispensation will witness the manifestations of several events as mentioned by the Lord and recorded in His gospel by Saint Mathews. It shouldn’t be news when you begin to see strange but true developments all over the world and in the church of God. These signs and signals are warnings to those who can read in between the lines and they are caution notes to the wise. I pray the situations of the world will not take you away from the faith but draw you close to Christ as we prepare for His second coming.
1 John 1:18-21 Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would [no doubt] have continued with us: but [they went out], that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us. 20 But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 21 I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
One of these end time manifestations is the multiplication of false brethren and half-baked Christians. You must grow in grace and be well taught of the Lord to avoid the deceptions and manipulations of the gospel that come from these end time representatives of darkness. Their objective is to turn the gospel upside down through lies and heresies. The generations of false brethren are wolves in sheep clothing and they lack the truth of God’s word in their dealings. You must be wise to avoid their cunning ways knowing that they are rebellious and cause division among genuine believers. Resist them using the truth and give them no space to multiply their sinful lifestyles. Open your eyes of understanding to God’s signals. Be committed to praying in the Spirit to discern the good from the bad. Don’t be an ordinary Christian but graduate to a disciple if you truly want to make heaven at last. I pray your current level of faith will not be corrupted by falsehood and lies of this end time in Jesus’ name.
Pray with faith: Father, open my eyes to the truth of your word and guide me far away from lies and heresies of false brethren. Let me live and be built up by your words.
