8/9/10- Mark 13:6, 21-23 False Christs

6 Many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and will deceive many.21 At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Messiah!' or, 'Look, there he is!' do not believe it. 22 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 23 So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.

(Sergei Vissarion Christ of Russia)
Thoughts: The problem with those who say it does not matter what you believe, is that there are really false prophets out there.  Like Jim Jones who got his group to commit mass suicide.  Or the Heaven's gate conspiracy in which 39 people tried to "evacuate earth" to catch a UFO behind a comet.  Then there's David Koresh who claimed to be the Lamb of God; Sun Myung Moon who claimed to be Jesus; Sergei in Russia- an ex-traffic cop (see picture) who claims to be Jesus; Jose Luis de Jesus Miranda of Puerto Rico who claims to be the real Jesus; and Lord Maitreya who put a full page ad in every newspaper in the country thirty years ago that said the messiah is alive and on earth today.  Jesus said many will come saying "I am he."  Miracles do not necessarily mean someone is the messiah.  Remember Pharaoh's magicians could imitate Moses' miracles.  Jesus' words to watch out, are words for us to be careful not to believe anything.

Prayer: Lord give me a discerning spirit and follow you truly.
