“If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;’ thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and ye shall serve Him, and cleave unto Him. And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.” Deuteronomy 13:1-5 (KJB)
There might come into our midst some great worker of miracles who with those wonders call people to worship some being from outer space. He/She claims they have found the answer that will change there lives, because they have found that “we are all gods” or some silly thing like that.
There is a growing tendency within our own nation [USA] that “If it works, then it must be good and right”. NOT! If it works it could be from the devil if it falls short of our LORD’s expectations and calling.
Since the United States of America is now a multi-cultural society being made of of many ethnic groups and religions and such; then we are being told to guard our speech. We are being told we can no longer refer to Christianity as the only way to heaven and God; that there are really many ways to God. There are many roads to the Post Office, but the one that gets you there is the one that leads to the front door. The front door to heaven is the cross of Jesus Christ. Jesus even tell us, Himself, that He is the door.
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before Me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” John 10:7-10
It doesn’t matter what you dream, or what wonders you may do; or that preacher, prophet, dreamer, or teacher made do; if they lead you away from God and His Word, they are a deceptive leader to your death, and destruction. The Old Testament law calls for their death; most likely by stoning.
Hear God through His Word, and by His Spirit. Fear Him. Keep His commandments. Turn away from every false way. Jesus is the way to life and eternal life. Hear Him and live.
