It seems nowadays every Tom, Dick and Harry is an apostle, mostly self-appointed. You shall know them by their fruits!
So this morning God led me to 2 Corinthians 11 where Paul speaks about false apostles. Then later today God brought my attention back to something I shared yesterday about Revelation 2.
He's just confirming what I think and discern. God knows our every thought!
We must be vigilant, pray to God for wisdom and discernment in these last days that are so full of deception. He will give to you liberally without reproach, but you must ask in faith, without doubting. For if you doubt, don't expect to receive anything from the Lord.
Thank you Jesus my King. † ♥
And when I was present with you, and in need, I was a burden to no one, for what I lacked the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied. And in everything I kept myself from being burdensome to you, and so I will keep myself.
10 As the truth of Christ is in me, no one shall stop me from this boasting in the regions of Achaia.
11 Why? Because I do not love you? God knows!
12 But what I do, I will also continue to do, that I may cut off the opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the things of which they boast.
13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
•~2 Corinthians 11:9-15
I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars;
