Don’t Be Fooled
You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ. - (Galatians 1:7)
We can be so dazzled by the supernatural. If someone does a miracle, the assumption is they must be from God. But are they? Should we believe anyone who can do a miracle?
Satan has his counterfeit Christians. He probably operates by the old adage that says, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” He loves to counterfeit the genuine. Whatever you have in the Christian life, you will have a devilish counterfeit somewhere else in this world.
There are people who will lie and say that something is a miracle when it really is not a miracle at all. Then there are miracles that can be done by the hand of the devil. The Bible warns us about lying signs and wonders that will be brought about by the Antichrist and the false prophet who will work in connection with him in the last days. So we don’t want to believe someone just because they supposedly have a “miracle” ministry.
In addition to counterfeit miracles, there are counterfeit believers and a counterfeit gospel. The apostle Paul wrote, “I have faced danger from men who claim to be believers but are not” (2 Corinthians 11:26). And writing to the believers in Galatia he said, “I am shocked that you are turning away so soon from God, who called you to himself through the loving mercy of Christ. You are following a different way that pretends to be the Good News but is not the Good News at all. You are being fooled by those who deliberately twist the truth concerning Christ” (Galatians 1:6–7).
How do you know if someone is from God? Listen to what they are saying. And if what they are saying does not correlate to what is taught in the Bible, don’t listen to them.
