Every person alive is subject to deception. Y’shua said even the very elect would be deceived (Matt 24:24). This was also Y’shua’s very first warning when He was asked about the end of the age. He said: “see to it that no one deceives you” (Matt 24:3-5). We have written a few previous posts about deception and will continue to do, because of the importance and relevance of this topic. In this study, we want to look at how certain practices can make it possible for us to be deceived. These practices can be summarized as mixed worship. This will include any practices and traditions contrary to the Word.
This is the second part of our study on how to identify a false prophet. We have determined before that it is our responsibility to ensure that we are not deceived. YHVH teaches us through His Word how to identify these false prophets or teachers. It is our responsibility to search His Word for the truth. Some of the Scripture quoted in this article is bound to offend some, but if we are offended by Scripture, we need to do some searching.
