“For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones.” (Mark 13:22)
Jesus is telling us to be on our guard. The devil is everywhere and cunning. He won’t come with a flag saying, “I am the devil.” He’ll be sneaky and slip in without us noticing.
We need to stay alert.
But does this mean we should be untrustworthy? No, just careful. There’s a difference. Be wise, that’s been the message from the Proverbs time and time again. If it looks too good to be true… it IS!
