Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
– Ephesians 6:10-11
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
What is the whole armor of God? Thesaid He is the truth. Yet the devils tell lies. When we understand the truth, we are able to discern lies and see through Satan’s cunning schemes. For example, God said the false Christs would appear in , so many people think any preaching that says the Lord has returned is false. According to this viewpoint, aren’t we not able to wait for the coming of the Lord forever? These are lies and Satan’s cunning schemes. The Lord said, “There shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” The point of the Lord’s word is to let us develop discernment: In the last days, whoever shows great signs and wonders is false Christ. False Christs have no essence of God and are surely not able to express the truth, but only imitate God’s work. We can see clearly the false Christs’ true face after possessing these discernments. However, anyone who believes the word “Any preaching that says the Lord has returned is false” is really falling right into Satan’s trap, and can’t welcome the Lord’s coming again forever.
O God, I’d like to rely on You and understand all the truth You bestows on me, so that I can see through Satan’s deceitful schemes and not be fooled by Satan. The last days has come, and each and every sentence of Your word is being fulfilled. If I can’t distinguish the true Christ from the false ones, I will easily follow Satan to commit evil deeds and oppose You. I wish for You to open the eyes of my spirit, let me be a humble man and seek the truth in everything to stand testimony to You. Amen.
