2 Peter 2:1
1 But [de] there were [ginomai] false prophets [pseudoprophetes] also [kai] among [en] the people [laos], even [kai] as [hos] there shall be [esomai] false teachers [pseudodidaskalos] among [en] you [humin], who [hostis] privily shall
bring in [pareisago] damnable [apoleia] heresies [hairesis], even [kai] denying [arneomai] the Lord
[despotes] that bought [agorazo] them [autos], and bring [epago] upon themselves [heautou]
swift [tachinos] destruction [apoleia]. KJV-Interlinear
1 But false prophets also arose
among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will
secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought
them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.NASB
The phrase, false
prophets, is a broad concept.It refers
to anyone or anything that attempts to direct your attentions away from your
In life you will face testing's
and troubles from four broad areas.First, from your own volition, thoughts and opinions.Second, from other peoples attitudes, beliefs
and so forth.Third, from the many
systems of bureaucracy out there in the world, established to frustrate or
channel your life.Fourth, from the many
natural difficulties that you can face, including storms, health issues, etc.
Interwoven in all of
these categories, is an extremely sophisticated system of evil.
You have to understand
and very early on, that life is an extremely serious matter.There is a battle brewing between God and
Satan.God represents eternal life and
truth.Satan wants to destroy everything
for his own selfish interest.
And though we cannot
see Satan or angels, God or anything beyond this physical world, there is far
more than enough evidence and proof that they exist.
You were not born into
this world just to function for a little while in this life.Your primary objectives in life are not to
advance yourself among humanity, or merely to survive here, but your primary
objective in life is to get prepared for eternity.
Your destiny is the Lake
of Fire if you choose to reject Christ, or heaven as an unprepared believer if
you choose to ignore Bible doctrine, or heaven as a mature believer.The latter is the very best possible position
that you can prepare for in this life.
The world will try to
advance you in society, or make you think that advancement in society is the
very best achievement available.Not so.
The world will try to
disable your spiritual life, preventing you from the ultimate destiny available
to you through doctrine.
And in this effort, by Satan's
design, and by mans subscription to Satan s design by proxy through
indifference or rejection of truth, there exists more sophisticated and
phenomenal deceptions than you can shake a stick at.
False prophets are not
limited to smooth talking preachers, guru s, or witch doctors, as it were.By far the greatest of evils lies in the
stylish, peer pressured, self-righteousness of a world that elevates itself and
overwhelms people with its standards and its loosely defined social morals, and
Every point of Bible doctrine,
has one or more counter doctrines in evil, established to confuse, confound, or
simply render truth as ambiguous and arbitrary.
The repercussions of following
evil from false sources?Your destiny
In this life, you will live
maybe a few decades and then you will die.Look at the past and identify all of the folks who have never died.You won t find any.
Your destiny and the
greater portion of your life lies beyond this one.Until you finally get it, until you get over
your pet distractions, until you finally figure out that your opinion and attitude
and whatever insults you, are of no importance, then you are placing, all by
yourself, your entire future at risk.
Those who promote false
views, destroy only themselves.Though
they may seem to succeed in this life, they too will be removed from this world
by God, and thus suffer their eternal losses.
Don t join them by
being a fool.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
