Hello, and welcome to Faith is Hope,
A wolf in sheep’s clothing. We’ve all heard it, and probably seen it in cartoons. But what is it?
A wolf in sheep’s clothing is symbolic of someone who outwardly appears harmless, and kind with good intentions, but inwardly is full of hate, evil, and deceit. A predator who appears meek and mild, and by the time you figure out who and what he is, he’s got you by the throat, ripping your lungs out. But did you know that this little saying came right from the bible, and not some fairy tale? In Matthew 7:15 Jesus warned us to “Watch out false prophets, They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” This was a warning about false teachings, false prophets, false preachers, and teachers.
The ultimate wolf in sheep’s clothing is satan. And he has deceived his way into our government, the education system, the legal system, and even the church. Yes, I said the church and many of our religious leaders. Who gave the churches, pastors, priests, or even the pope the right or the authority to change any of God’s commandments, laws, ordinances, or statutes? No one has that authority, but it’s happening. We’re being told that we should be more accepting and tolerant of the things that we know are a sin. Let me get this straight. Jesus was arrested, beaten, scourged, had a crown of thorns shoved down onto his head, was nailed to a cross, and died for our sins, the sins of the world. And we’re supposed to be more tolerant and accepting of sin? I don’t think so. And if a church or religious leader says something like that, they’re not a servant of God. They’re a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a servant of Satan. And the same is true about governments, schools, and media, anyone who tells you to accept sin is a servant of satan, and does the work of Satan, not God.
No, we are not to be tolerant or accepting of sin. Jesus said that we are to love our brothers as we love ourselves. If you love someone, you don’t hurt them or do harm to them, but you don’t have to like everything they think, say, and do. I love my kids, but I don’t like it when they misbehave or hurt each other. You’re not judging someone if you don’t like the sinful actions someone is doing or saying. You’re just saying no. Jesus paid with his life for my sins, for our sins, and I won’t just accept sin and make his death and resurrection meaningless. No, I won’t do that.
As Christians, we’re supposed to stand with truth (God) against evil. We should tell the truth about God’s desire for our lives. We are teachers, and teachers are held to teaching the truth and teaching the facts. And if you’re not teaching the truth of God, his word, and his teachings, then you are a preacher of death and destruction.
I’m not a psychic or a soothsayer. I don’t claim to see into the future or make predictions of what’s coming. No one but God can see the future, because God is the past, present, and future. God shows me what he wants me to see, and tells me what he wants me to know when he wants me to know it. Now I’ve had over three dozen visions from God since 2016, and I’ve had hundreds of messages. In 2017 I was shown a vision about the beast “satan”, and he was hiding in this huge underground cave. The cave had many rooms, and pathways dug into the rock, and in those rooms were demons. In 2019 I was shown another vision of the beast “satan” in the form of a great dragon. I saw him flying over the face of the world, turning his head from side to side, looking for someone or something. Nothing but death and destruction was left in its wake.
So what does it all mean? We all know that evil has been present on earth since the time of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. There have been times in the history of the world when evil was everywhere, and it flourished. Sodom and Gomorrah, Germany under Hitler, and quite a few others. But nothing like what we’re seeing now. It’s not just one leader or one false religious prophet, like Jim Jones. It’s world leaders, and nations. It’s world religions, and religious leaders telling us that we need to do what they tell us to do because they’re doing God’s work, and they speak for God. News flash, they’re wolves in sheep’s clothing. How can these people say they speak for God when they lie? How can they say they’re doing God’s work when they do the work of Satan?
This nation’s government, this administration, both political parties and politicians, the education system, the judicial system, and many churches have laid down with the serpent. They’re liars, and thieves, they corrupt and pervert the world with their evil. They speak blasphemies against God and attack his word. I don’t have to accept their evil, sinful ways. I don’t have to be a part of their lives, and perversions, and neither do you. When we stand for the truth, in love, Jesus stands with us. He saves us from the dead, and eternal destruction of sin. We will be persecuted for his name’s sake. We will be attacked, even to death for truth’s sake. But our reward is life everlasting with God, on earth, and in heaven. Don’t accept a lie, teach the truth. Teach the facts. Those who know the sound of the good shepherd’s voice will come when they hear it. Those who don’t know his voice won’t. We can lead people to Christ but we can’t force them to accept him. People have to make up their own minds, and make their own choices. Because it’s one they’re going to live with forever.
We all come to Christ in our own way and in our own time. But we don’t get to accept him and follow him in our own way. If a thief comes to Christ, accepts him as their Lord and Savior, but continues to steal then is the thief truly sorry for his sins, did the thief truly accept Christ and forgiveness? How can we ask for forgiveness of our sins, and then go around promoting and accepting sin? Even though we all fall short, we all sin, God wants us to keep working on the life that he wants for us. Not the life we want for ourselves.
There’s a storm brewing on the horizon, it’s coming, and there’s nothing any of us can do to stop it. At no time in history has the world ever seen anything like this storm. Because it’s a storm of pure evil. Of pure hate, death, and destruction. You prepare for it, by salvation through Jesus Christ. No storm shelter or bomb shelter will protect you. No “Hitting the fan” prepping will save you. We are not capable of saving ourselves. If we could, why did Jesus have to come to the world, shed his blood, be crucified, die, be resurrected, and now sit at the right hand of God the Father? Because Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. And no one comes to the Father except through him. Christ is the way. The only way.
Please, Share this website, and share these podcasts with two people every day. Jesus said for where two or more are gathered in my name, I am there. Let all of us, and all those we love come together in the name of Jesus Christ. And let’s all talk to Our Father who art in Heaven.
Hey, I’m Dave – Join me next time when I talk about two of my visions. And until then, I’ll see you at the Rest Area.
