Last Days Deception (Audio Message by David Wilkerson)
Today I listened to an audio recording of a message David Wilkerson preached several years ago. I have posted the link to it below for you to listen to also… I apologize, but I was unable to locate the exact date. In the message David warns about the “seeker friendly” churches that are becoming more popular, which compromise on the Gospel message and bring in destructive doctrines with clever tactics.
Today’s institutional church is so incredibly biblically illiterate that they will embrace just about anything if it is dressed up with the right amount of gloss on the surface.
Many preachers are no longer are willing to to declare biblical truth, because they fear offending potential pew warmers… and many preachers are just as ignorant of biblical truths as the flocks they preach to so that even some with good intentions end up teaching errant things because they are just regurgitating what they have learned themselves. Since so many people who wear the label of “Christian” these days don’t have any legitimate working knowledge of actual biblical doctrine (let alone a genuine relationship with Jesus, led by His Holy Spirit), they are virtually unable to tell a lie from the truth. Most judge by “feeling”. If it gives them a warm feeling and sounds like God, then it has to be good… Nevermind if it actually lines up with what God calls good or not.
This is the new “emerging Christianity”, which is not true Christianity at all. Apostasy is here now. Many involved think this apostasy is actually “revival” and they are leaping and bounding straight into error. They are embracing doctrines of demons without question. They are trading the Gospel of Jesus for a false gospel and, unless repentance comes, I fear there will be hell to pay for many.
Matthew 7:21-23 (CEV) – Not everyone who calls me their Lord will get into the kingdom of heaven. Only the ones who obey my Father in heaven will get in. On the day of judgment many will call me their Lord. They will say, “We preached in your name, and in your name we forced out demons and worked many miracles.” But I will tell them, “I will have nothing to do with you! Get out of my sight, you evil people!”
This is serious! So many Christians are opening themselves up to slighted teachings and unbiblical concepts and, even when a friend attempts to lovingly warn them, the deceived person will often not listen and presumes that the person offering the warning just has some kind of religious chip on their shoulder; that they’re not able to embrace the “new thing” God is believed to be doing.
But Jesus is the SAME yesterday, today and forever!
Hebrews 13:8-9a (CEV) – Jesus Christ never changes! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Don’t be fooled by any kind of strange teachings….
I used to be on the other side of this issue; Those who couldn’t embrace the “new thing”, I was the one calling them “religious”. I was the one thinking they were spiritually blind. Thank the Lord He opened my eyes and set me free by His grace. May He continue to open people’s eyes to see the truth.
I hope you are stirred by this message by David Wilkerson. Men of God like him are few and far between these days. Though David was a “church man” himself, the man was far less like any typical church man we’ve seen in recent years. This brother knew the Lord closely and spoke with genuine, Spirit-led conviction and stuck to Bible truth. I have so often been encouraged by his messages.
