Beware of that which is False!

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

How could anyone follow that which is not Christ? I will never follow those foolish false teachers.

How often I have heard, I would never deny Christ as Peter did. I even questioned "How David could be a man after God's own heart" after what he did.

But just as the Apple above Looks delicious So are the words, thoughts, and ideal of men. Thankfully God is generous, merciful and understanding. He realizes how week and easily deceived our minds are.

The apple above was given to me be Darrel Tank as a pencil sketch.

By adding color to it and using special effects I ended up with the taste tempting apple at the top of the page. So it will be when Satan unveils his plan of spiritual destruction. He is not going to come and announce that he is here to cause us everlasting torment; but he will sugar coat thing and make us believe this is the true way to everlasting peace and happiness. Just as Snow White was seduced with a beautiful apple, he will appeal to the lust of our eyes, sooth our pallets from the bitter truth, and ease our consciences with syrupy lies that our sinful nature craves.

The remedy;
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Spirit- Seales
Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Mikes Paraphrase:
Believe in the Lord Jesus for your salvation, Read the word (Bible) to know righteous from evil; Trust the Holy Spirit to speak to you in times of doubt and protect you from evil.

Beware what appeals to the eyes, it may be false. And don't eat any black apples that look good because the were dipped in red dye!!

God bless

The music on this page is It's Your Own Fault - Don Francisco
One of the first concerts I went to as a new Christian was Don Francisco Who was playing in a small church in Bueno Vista Colorado about 30 miles from Leadville.

Don Francisco is one of few who offer their music as a ministry. I encourage you to support his ministry through the albums, they are only $11.00 each. But if you can't afford to purchase his music then you can download them at in full cd mp3 quality. I've cut this one down because of the size for the web pages.
