Matthew 24:24 [Jesus says] “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.”
I had a vision last night. I saw men, two at a time, bowing to one another and presenting boxes, with a flourish. There were several sets of men. They had proud looks on their faces and were impressed with each other. Some wore capes like magician’s capes. I did not know what it meant.
Today, the Lord revealed the interpretation. These are the presenters of a false gospel, magicians who perform false signs and wonders.
Some of these presenters preach a false gospel that has no requirement for repentance from sin.
Some of these presenters preach a false gospel that tells believers that at best, they will have to choose, from moment to moment, not to sin (as if we had the power to do that, in ourselves!).
Some of these presenters preach a false gospel that tells believers that the rebellious nature in humans cannot be destroyed and replaced with Christ’s nature.
Some of these presenters preach that Christ died to make your life happy. With this, they are especially impressed with one another.
John 12:43 for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.
These presenters have used their impressive “magic” to transform the gospel of Jesus Christ from a gospel of freedom to a man-made gospel, one formed from their own imagination.
Lamentations 2:14 Your prophets have seen for you
False and foolish visions;
And they have not exposed your iniquity
So as to restore you from captivity,
But they have seen for you false and misleading oracles.
Matthew 23:13 [Jesus says] “But woe to you . . . because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.”
