Do not be Deceived

 In Daily Devotional

Matthew 24:4

“Jesus answered: ‘Watch out that no one deceives you.’”

When four of Jesus’ closest disciples went to Him privately to ask Him what would be the signs of His Second Coming and of the “end of the age”, Jesus warned them several times not to be deceived. Surely, we are even now seeing all the signs come to pass before our very eyes just as He foretold. Likewise, we are already seeing signs of the great deception.

I believe the greatest part of this deception is to try to convince the world that there are more ways to God and Heaven than just through Jesus. THAT IS A LIE. DO NOT BE DECEIVED. The only way to Father God is through the finished work of Jesus Christ of Nazareth at the cross and through His resurrection.

Many are suggesting that Jesus is just one way to Heaven, not necessarily the only way. This has reportedly come from even a few influential leaders within “Christian” circles! It is heresy to espouse this view.

Jesus told us that if it were possible, even “the elect” would be deceived (Matthew 4:24). Deception is here. Don’t fall for it. It is eternally important for you to be sure you are part of “the elect”.


Ask the Father to give you the spirit of discernment through His Holy Spirit so that you will not be deceived. Reaffirm your desire to be included in “the elect” about which Jesus spoke.

Be watchful. Don’t be deceived.
