Matthew 13:24,25 "He put another parable before them saying, 'The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away." ESV
Satan cannot uproot true Christians, so he deceitfully plants counterfeit Christians among them. He even goes so far as to plant counterfeit churches, counterfeit preachers and teachers, and in the last days, a counterfeit messiah. Unfortunately, this evil tactic will result in some of the very elect of God being deceived and believing lies. In His time, the true and the counterfeit will be revealed. If we stay alert, hide the Word in our hearts, keep being filled with the Holy Spirit, and always examining ourselves, we will be found as true Christians when our Lord comes to separate the true from the false.
Heavenly Father, You have told us that deception would be rampant in the last days. We earnestly pray that you will help us to stay alert, immerse ourselves in Your Word, and stay open to ongoing infilling of Your Holy Spirit. We long to be found as Your true children. In Jesus' name, Amen.
