Jesus Warned Us

To read the Bible in a year, read Matthew 24:23-51.
No one should be led astray by false christs and false prophets, because Jesus warned, “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” (Matthew 24:23, 24). False christs and false prophets will not appear to be false. Their disguise will be good. Their arguments and works will be very good, deceiving, if possible, the least likely people. Therefore, bury your nose in the Scriptures that you might know all things, preventing anyone from successfully deceiving you. Just remember that someone will try to deceive you and he or she will seem like the genuine article at first, but remember what else Jesus also said, “See, I have told you beforehand” (v. 25). Do not think you cannot be deceived or that someone will not try it. If you think that way, you are already susceptible.
