"Behold, I come quickly: hold fast to what you have, that no man take your crown" - Revelation 3:11
We are in an hour where many believers are face with a strong temptation to believing the doctrines of false teachers and the declarations of false prophets for prosperity, success, easy living and consolation.
"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many" (Matthew 24:11).
"The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means, and my people love to have it so: and what will you do in the end thereof?" (Jeremiah 5:31).
False teachers and prophets are very crafty and artful in their words to where you may not be able to detect that their teachings and declarations are in error, a good reason why you must search and know the written word of the living God.
"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11).
Satan's strategy through his servants is to get you to disbelieve the truth and to uproot you from the foundation you have been brought up on. But don't believe their lies.
"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (I John 4:1).
Don’t let the servants of Satan cause you to lose even a jewel from your crown to follow after their lies and deceit. Better yet, let no man who is an enemy against the truth of the gospel take what you have received. Hold on to what you have and hold on to it tight.
