“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
Jesus, in answering a few questions from His disciples (Matt 24:3), speaks about the end times, tribulation, and the destruction of the Temple.
Twice He mentions about false christs, which tells me this is a very important topic.
I discussed one yesterday about those coming in the name of Christ, while today it is the witness of others drawing attention to a false christs, demonstrating their ability through great signs and wonders.
It’s safe to say if false christs are drawing attention to themselves, they are diverting attention from the real Christ!
I dare say it has begun but will increase.
If you want to know the way to truthfully examine the claims, then read your Bible. It is the truth, whereas false christs will speak half-truths and lies bound in deception.
2 Timothy 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
