How Well Are You Protected From Deception?

But false prophets also appeared among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.

-Peter 2:1, NASB 2020

If you have a computer, you will need to install an antivirus to catch them before it corrupts your computer and will make it unusable. We are like a computer, having a system that is designed by God to function correctly for His use. Satan is like a hacker who tries to inject his viruses to interrupt your ability, as a Christian, to do God’s will by bringing others to Christ.

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

-1 John 4:1, NASB 2020

Your antivirus has to be updated daily to be prepared to defend your computer from all types of killer viruses. As believers, the way we update our minds to defeat false doctrine – viruses, is by reading the Scriptures every day. It will put your mind at its optimal level with knowing the Scriptures, being well versed to combat deception, the twisting of the Scriptures.

But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his trickery, your minds will be led astray from sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

-2 Corinthians 11:3, NASB 2020

The purpose of the disruption of the virus that the devil injects is to disconnect your WiFi. Your WiFi represents your connection with the Lord through prayer. If deception takes place, your prayer life will be affected. You won’t be able to connect with the Lord as you will be praying to the wrong Jesus.

20 Timothy, protect what has been entrusted to you, avoiding worldly, empty chatter and the opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”— 21 which some have professed and thereby have gone astray from the faith.

-1 Timothy 6:20-21, NASB 2020

What’s coming to the earth will be something that we have never experienced before, testing our faith to its limit. Update daily your knowledge of God’s Word, which feeds your faith. Keep praying for direction and protection. Spreading the gospel to save as many as possible before the rapture. Everything that is happening in the world is pointing to what is coming, the antichrist.
