God: gave us ample warning….
Matthew 24:4-5 (KJV) “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many”.
In the world there are many of us who are pretty smart and have a above average intelligence and it can be very difficult for someone to have one over us; we can unravel a deception a mile away.
Despite this, when it comes to the things of God, we are vulnerable and I believe that Jesus saw this aspect of His believers and tendered the warning for caution.
Deception is rife in the world, and more so in the body of Christ; seek for deeper discernment from our Father in heaven…
