2012 January 2 - Morning Manna

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. (Matthew 7:15)

Today's Morsel: There is a movie entitled "Dancing With Wolves."  Many people are dancing with wolves and don't know it.  Jesus said that we should beware of false prophets which come to us in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.  The only way you can discern these wolves is to know their fruit.  Are they telling you to do one thing and yet they are doing another?   Is their lives a display of Jesus?  Are the fruit and gifts of the spirit in operation in their lives?  Do they care more about the things of God than about themselves.  Are they always asking for money, money, money, in every service?  Each time you attend church, do you leave the same way you came through the doors?  If you answered yes, you may be dancing with wolves.  Paul tells us, "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving" (1 Timothy 4:1-4).  "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God" the apostle John said, (1 John 4:1-2).  We must try the spirits to see if they are of God.  Remember, the devil knows the scriptures as well.  Therefore, if you don't know the scriptures, it may be easy for you to  dance with wolves.

Sing: Dance, dance, dance, and make music with the heavens, we will sing and shout, lift high the name of Jesus.
