RHAPSODY OF REALITIES DAILY DEVOTIONAL
THE WORD IS OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLE.
Thursday, January 7th.
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 (1 Timothy 4:1).
In these end times before the Rapture of the Church, one of the phenomena we’ll witness is apostasy (2 Thessalonians 2:3). Many will fall away from the Faith, because they gave heed to seducing spirits—spirits that lure people from believing in God, from believing the truth. These spirits lure men from the right path, to give attention to teachings, assertions and instructions of demons.
The doctrines of demons aren’t new. Eve sinned against God through a doctrine of Satan. Satan lied to her, lured her from the truth, and she was deceived (1 Timothy 2:14). Satan didn’t have any personal contact with her; he worked through the serpent to question the veracity of God’s instructions. The serpent suggested something else to her, which was a perversion of God’s Word. He said to her, “…Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” (Genesis 3:1).
It’s like what you find in certain circles today; while the Word of God teaches, “Love who you marry,” they say, “Marry who you love.” What are they aiming at? The idea of same-sex marriage! So, a man can say, “Well, marriage is about love; I’m in love with another man.” That’s the seduction; a doctrine of demons!
Many are being subtly lured into the wrong path, with scriptures being misinterpreted, and they think everything is fine; something is wrong. The Bible says, “Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith…” (2 Corinthians 13:5 NIV). There’s no other way to examine yourself besides the Word of God.
There’ll never be an updating of the Bible. What you believe and live by must be consistent with what the Bible says. The Word of God is, and must be, your guiding principle for life. That Word says, “Surely you know that the wicked will not possess God’s Kingdom. Do not fool yourselves; people who are immoral or who worship idols or are adulterers or homosexual perverts or who steal or are greedy or are drunkards or who slander others or are thieves—none of these will possess God’s Kingdom” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 GNB).
