Not Fake News!

Paul reminds believers in 2nd Thessalonians, chapter 2, that the Rapture hadn’t yet occurred, and they weren’t, in fact, in the Tribulation. Paul wanted to be sure those believers were hearing the truth and not something simply fabricated to explain the persecution that was happening at the time. Fake news was circulating, even in Biblical times! Today, with instant communication via the Internet, television, and radio, fake news can be generated and propagated at an even faster pace. The media now is an unreliable source of truth and serves to report more opinion than fact. Therefore, it is important that we get our Truth from the Word of God. If we don’t open our Bible and study God’s Word, we can be easily deceived by false doctrine and ungodly teachers. J. Vernon McGee states it like this, “Those who do not stand for something will fall for anything. People who are not rooted in the Word of God will fall for all kinds of signs.”

When people either fall away or refuse to listen and obey God’s Word, they are being deceived. My sister, who had a Baptist upbringing, moved to San Francisco and began attending a very liberal church. In fact, during a search of their web site, the name of Jesus isn’t mentioned once. This church was very involved in community service and talked about how it believed all paths and religions would lead to heaven. While this may sound good, it isn’t Biblical truth. The Bible states there is only one way to heaven and that is through Jesus Christ (John 14:6). Clearly many are deceived by the teachings of that church and the many other churches that teach false doctrine. Sadly, my sister and her family are no longer walking with Jesus.

Thankfully, the Holy Spirit is still here working through God’s Church. God’s hand of restraint is still present. Once the church is Raptured and the Tribulation begins, the world will see evil like never before, so keep your eyes on Jesus. Stay grounded and rooted in the Word of God which will lead you to do the work of God. Keep a Heavenly mind set and stay busy working for His Kingdom. Remember, if Jesus comes tomorrow you want to be sure you are working for Him today.
