// The False Appearances Of Godly People In These End Times* 3K+ ↓↓   ↓

In John 7, Jesus was being harassed by people who hated him (and what he was doing). Part of his reply was teaching us how to judge.

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." (John 7:24 King James Version).

This teaching is very amazing, as it has multi-levels of understanding and meaning. What is and is not righteousness is taught to us by learning the Holy Bible Scriptures. It's also given by the Spirit of Truth (the Holy Ghost). Many Christians are way too quick to think that Jesus is teaching them not to judge by the way people look (appearances). Then the enemy steps in and twists this scripture into a false teaching that no matter how evil someone looks, you are not suppose to judge their appearance, which in result often leads the deceived Christian into the trouble of not being willing to discern good from evil.

In these end times, false christians, false teachers, false preachers, false leaders and false churches are rising up so fast that you couldn't keep track of them if you wanted to, and I suggest you don't. There are men and women who stand in front of a church, and appear as if they are Christian ministers. They have their degree from men saying they fulfilled all of their rules and now they can preach in their denomination. They have the preachers outfit, maybe even the priests collar. They say, they are a preacher. So in all appearances, they are Christian pastors.

Imagine one of these "pastors" has been hired by the devil. Christians pack into his "church", because it looks like a nice Christian place. The man stands at the front of the congregation and looks, acts and sounds like a Christian pastor (appearances). However, some (most likely very, VERY few) of the people listening to this "preacher" are using righteous judgment to judge the sermon they are hearing. What are they judging? They are judging damnable heresies that this "preacher" is deceptively mixing in with his sermon. Those who are following the Lords word and are using righteous judgment know that there is something evil going on, so they leave that "church". The others? They sit there and accept everything this man says, because after all - he looks, acts and sounds like a Christian preacher, and he is the leader of what appears to be a Christian church (they have judged according to the appearance rather than righteousness, and thus they have been deceived.)

* You cannot be warned enough that when you enter into a Church, no matter what it appears like, you need to judge with Holy Bible Scripture against what is going on and what is being taught, to make sure you are attending an actual Church of God.

"Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." (John 7:24 King James Version).

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try [TEST AGAINST THE SCRIPTURES] the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world." (1 John 4:1 King James Version).

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves [IN APPEARANCES] into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed [IN APPEARANCES] into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed [IN APPEARANCES] as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 King James Version).

"And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (Matthew 24:4 king James version).
