To Pull The Wool Off The Wolves In The Church
there are more Wolves In Sheeps' Clothing than true Lambs of God! Many of the wolves in sheeps' clothing are themselves deceived - they have been convinced that their sheeps' clothing proves that they are really a sheep!
In some flocks the Wolves In Sheeps' Clothing regularly mall, maim, and destroy God's Lambs. Some do this due to malice. Others do it simply because they are wolves and that's what wolves do. I does not matter why - it destroys people and lives within the sheepfold, what is supposed to be the safety of the sanctuary of faith.
Wolves In Sheeps' Clothing hold the eldership, leadership, even the pastoral office. They themselves are the persons referred to by the Apostle Paul - “Many who profess Christ are no longer embracing sound doctrine because they want their ears tickled and are seeking teachers who will do just that (2 Tim. 4:2).
In some flocks Wolves In Sheeps' Clothing hold the power to protect themselves from loss of control. They bring on board those like themselves. They silence all opposition that might reveal their true nature. But "by their fruits" they are revealing the lie they believe about themselves.
"A lot of us could stop from being manipulated/abuse/deceived by just getting in the word of God and seeking his face…and being transformed by the renewing (cleansing, repairing, rebuilding) of our minds…
"HOW DO YOU KNOW THE REAL FROM THE FAKE….HOLD IT UP TO THE LIGHT…THAT LIGHT IS CHRIST!!!"
Many of you who are wolves in sheeps clothing don't know it because you are biblically illiterate. Oh, you know the proof texts. The scripture mantras put forth to placate the flock. But you don't know the whole council of God. You don't know where the proof texts fit in the biblical teachings or what the mantras really refer to. And so you are illiterate concerning the messages God brings forth - the complete word of God.
The only way to protect yourself from being kept a wolf in sheeps clothing, and the only way to protect yourselves as sheep in the flock, is to destroy the biblical illiteracy in yourself and among the members of the flock. You must become Bereans.
Refuse to accept tradition, and history, in place of the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Be determined to know the truth and nothing but the truth - and anything of value in the traditions or history will flame into light and rebirth what those traditions and history represent.
You have nothing to lose - you're not comfortable inside yourself anyway - and Life and Light to gain in a vibrant relationship with Christ and His True Bride - The Unadulterated Body Of Christ!
