One of the most dangerous tactics of Satan against humanity is to deceive masses to follow his anointed ministers who do strange miracles to win more souls for him (Satan). ZEPH.1:4; 2THESS.2:9
God before Whom nothing is covered and declares the end from the beginning, cautions us about Satan’s device of using false ministers to deceive people in the following text below:
(13) "For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. (14) And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. (15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” 2COR.11:13-15
Quite apart from that, Jesus Christ in His earthly ministry declared that He would profess unto people who do not obey the commandments rather than follow after miracles, that He never knew them.
(21) "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that
doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” MATT.7:21-23
Thanks be unto God, that the mystery surrounding these miracles has been revealed to us: Other than that many souls would have perished. This is because it is something that creates confusion in the house of God, despite numerous warnings given in the scriptures. For example:
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”1JN.4:1
The warning message of trying every spirit should be critically examined, because God is not an author of confusion whereby He would pour out His Holy Spirit to anybody at all whereas that person is a transgressor of His laws. This is because the Holy Spirit is there for only faithful and obedient children of God Most High. And that such ones can truly testify of the power of God. (ACTS 5:32). This shows that most of the tongues being spoken in the churches, deliverances performed and other miracles done in some churches should be critically examined.
It is very sad that today’s generation have just a short time to grab our salvation, yet we are being totally frustrated by the arch-enemy, who is still in the boxing ring, fighting against our right to the kingdom of heaven. This time he has clinched the gospel with poverty on the part of the truth-holders, so that the truth could not travel to some important areas. But Satan rather provides great financial assistance to his Pharisee ministers who either know not the truth at all or hold the truth in hypocrisy and the light in darkness, to spread falsehood to every corner they could reach. By so doing, these blind ministers with adequate and sometimes surplus equipments are able to travel to many places to win more souls to their sides, where the grave is wide open to swallow more people.
" Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” MATT.23:15
On the other hand too, those who lack the knowledge of the truth have become stumbling blocks to people who are seriously seeking salvation for their dear souls. Thus is reported in the text below:
"But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer(allow) ye them that are entering to go in.”MATT.23:13
In another strategy, the little efforts on the part of the truth-holders also receive the attention of just a few little flock who are poor in spirit (MATT.5:3). But these little flocks get attracted and attacked by the evil possessed ones and direct descendants of Satan. Like in the days of Noah, Satan use them to fight against the true church and this has in fact collapsed so many churches. Others are also left bare to Satan’s influence, thus making the members practice all kinds of malice including sexual promiscuity. All this strategy by Satan aims at depriving mankind of the heavenly kingdom and the necessities of life which God has made available to all meek and obedient servants of His.GO TO THE NEXT PAGE
