Thought for The Day – Wednesday 7th April

matthew post

“If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened. At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.

Matthew 24: 22 – 25

Google ‘List of people who claimed to be Jesus’ and you’ll be surprised there have been so many. With so many claimants how do we know the Jesus of the bible is actually the correct one? He is the only person to have fulfilled all the prophecies and most importantly the only one whom hundreds of people saw after he came back from the dead. We all know there is a big difference between what some claim and their ability to deliver. That is why it’s important we follow the correct person. After all, it is only our immortal, eternal soul that is at stake!

Prayer: Father give me ears to hear and eyes to see, most importantly give me a discerning spirit to see when I am following the wrong person.

Action: Before following anyone today, consider if they are qualified.
