Warning Against Deceivers In The World

Key Verse

“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).

Text — 2 John 1:3-11


Going by the Scriptures, we are now in the last days, watching and seeing the fulfilment of nearly all the prophetic events that should predate the rapture and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Key amongst these is the proliferation of false prophets and false teachers, agents of Satan masquerading as “men of God.” Multitudes have been deceived already because, “The predictions of false prophets always come true,” says Marty Rubin. Except for minds illuminated by the Word of God, most people take fulfilment of predictions as divine approval of a prophet. Unfortunately, this is false!

Beloved youths, here are some marks of the deceivers:

(1) They add to God’s Word, claiming access to new revelations

(2) They subtract from God’s word and declare that some Bible teachings are outdated

(3) They deliberately misinterpret and misapply God’s word, like Hymenaeus and Philetus who preached that the resurrection had passed already (2 Timothy 2:17-18).

(4) They are hypocrites, preaching the Word but doing something else.

So, read the Bible, yield your heart to Christ and receive divine guidance on identification and avoidance of deceivers.


So, read the Bible


Recognize and resist deceivers.

Prayer for today

Draw me to thee, O Lord, that I might be shielded from deceivers.
