Ezekiel 11:2-4 NLT
The Spirit said to me, “Son of man, these are the men who are planning evil and giving wicked counsel in this city. They say to the people, ‘Is it not a good time to build houses? This city is like an iron pot. We are safe inside it like meat in a pot.Therefore, son of man, prophesy against them loudly and clearly.”
Matthew 7:21-23 NIV
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’
Acts 7:42 NIV

Acts 20:29-31 NIV
I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard!
What is the truth? Truth is found in a person, Jesus Christ and His Gospel which is a relationship with Him, forgiveness of sins. Walking in His footstep carrying our cross. Christians are not friends of the world but friends of Christ. If the world hates Jesus, then it will hate us too, that is ok for we are more then flesh and blood, we are spirit and our spirit will live on forever.
Christians, make sure you are in a right relationship with Jesus for with each passing day we are coming closer to His return.
