BELIEVING A LIE | KnowingJESUS Daily Devotional

September 1, 2019 – Enrich and Sustain your relationship with Jesus reading our daily devotional – BE CAREFUL, SO YOU WONT BELIEVE A LIE.

2Th 2:1012  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Beloved,  glory be to God almighty for bringing you in to the new month of September, 2019. It is true that you have started to journeying into the  ember  months of this year,  but  be rest assured that God will go with you all through to the end in Jesus name.
It will be ember  months,  where God will make you  to see desired goodness in every facets of your live,  without seeing any evil in Jesus name.

Psalms 27:13  I had fainted, unless I had believed  to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

But then as you begin the ember month,  be resolved to continue to be wise, as you have always being.

Pro 9:12  If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself:but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

What exactly can make you wise?  Two things.
1. Live continually with eternity in view.

Deuteronomy 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Col 3:1Col 3:4 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

2. Be committed and addicted to live by doing the sayings of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Mat 7:24Mat 7:25  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Rev 3:10Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

This  becomes necessary  because the prophecies of the  last days events shall begin to unfold speedily.
1.  Men will become lovers of themselves. 

2Ti 3:12Ti 3:5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2. There  shall be departure  from the faith.  Departure from desiring the  total truth of the gospel but choosing only the things they want to believe in the  Bible having itching ears.

1Ti 4:11Ti 4:2  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;

2Ti 4:12Ti 4:4  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Beloved,  remember,  as you rejoice for coming to the new month,  two things also happens  simultaneously.
1. You are getting closer  and closer  to the clarion call to glory.  This is a reality many don’t want to think about until it happens,  suddenly.  See what  the scriptures says. 

Hebrews 9:27  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

2  You are also closer and closer to the  imminent rapture of the saints. 

1Th 4:151Th 4:17  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

1Co 15:511Co 15:52  Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Beloved ,  because of these two things,  closer to clarion call to glory or imminent rapture,  the ploy of the devil and his cohorts is to subtlely hinder care free  believers from either of the two. These  they will tirelessly do  by disauading  them to believe  the  total truth ,  that would enable them prepare adequately for either of the two.
But then they  shall be made believe lies,  that shall make them unprepared for either of the two.  This ploy of the devil will then eutomaticalky damned their souls   This  shall not be your portion in Jesus name.  See what the scriptures says both in the old and new testaments. .

2Th 2:102Th 2:12  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Jeremiah 2:13   For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.

Beloved,  to help you in particular not to fall a victim of this  damnable  ploy  of the devil  and be caught in this  web.  Please be wise and commit yourself to doing the sayings of Christ  and live with eternity in view always.
The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.  You must be determined  to separate yourself from anyone and everyone  that wants to make you reject the total truth of the Bible.

Rom 16:17Rom 16:18  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Dearly beloved, during the earthly ministry of our Lord,  He took time to warn the Bible days believers and by extension the believers of all ages and that includes you. He warned them on the things that shall be unfolding when His coming back  draws  nearer.  See some of the things He taught them.

Mat 24:4Mat 24:5  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Mat 24:24Mat 24:25  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.

Mat 24:33Mat 24:35  So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

Our Lord warned the believers to hold on to the total truth,  He taught them and not be swayed  by false  prophets and false teachers  that want them to do other  wise.  He told them that doing so shall make them wise and be qualified to  live with Him in glory or be ready when He would appear in the cloud to receive them unto Himself.  .

Mat 7:24Mat 7:27  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

You  also should  heed this warming to avoid falling a victim of this false teachers and prophets  raised  up by the devil to truncate the eternal wellbeing of carefree  believers.  You shall not fall a victim in Jesus name.
It is to help the church of Christ avoid this damnable and subtle ploy of the devil to sway believers from holding on to the wholesome  truth ,  that shall guarantee their eternal well-being that made the blessed Holy Spirit to  inspire apostle Paul to pen down this all important truth. See it.

2Th 2:102Th 2:12  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Dearly beloved,  you shall not be damned in Jesus name. Please pause here and sincerely examine  your Christian life on the basis of this truth. Do you believe  the wholesome truth of the Bible or you choose what you want to believe?   If the answer is yes.  That you believe  the entire truth. Hold on to it,  till Jesus comes.

Rev 2:25  But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.

But if not,  please know that this is the  devil”s  ploy against your eternal wellbeing and please repent immediately.   See what other scriptures says about this eternity defining issue.

2Th 2:12Th 2:5  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?

2Pe 2:12Pe 2:3   But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

1Jo 2:18  Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

2Jo 1:72Jo 1:11  For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Rom 16:17Rom 16:18  Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple

The good Lord shall help you in particular to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
Friend,  your earnest desire to be ready for the dawning rapture shall nor end in delusion in Jesus name  But then the buck stops with you.  There is an urgent  need for you to validate your resolve with appropriate and  commensurate actions.
It is important for you in particular to know thar only those who believe and live by the entire truth in the Bible shall live with Jesus in glory  for all eternity or avoid the looming great tribulations,  that shall begin immediately after the rapture.

Rev 3:10Rev 3:11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

Friend,  see what happens to those who don’t believe  and live by the total truth from three different personalities.
1. Apostle Paul said,  such  carefree believers shall be damned.  You shall not be damned in Jesus  name.

2Th 2:102Th 2:12  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2. Jesus said such carefree  believers  shall face  fearsome judgement at eternity.  This shall not be your portion. 

Jn 12:46Jn 12:48  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

3. John the beloved,  the apostle of love said such carefree  believers shall have their names removed from the book of life and then thrown into  the lake of fire.  This shall never be your portion in Jesus name  

Rev 22:18Rev 22:19  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Now be wise as you have always been.  Please choose to do now the word of our Lord Jesus Christ  and secure your eternal well-being.  It shall be so fir you in Jesus name.

Mat 7:24Mat 7:25  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
