“Of the World” Christians and
Preachers, False Prophets, the
Falling Away and the END.

If it sounds like the world or hides behind the
ways of the world in order to reach the
world, it probably is “of the world” based on I
John 2:15-17

“Love not the world, neither the things
that are in the world. If any man love the
world, the love of the Father is not in him.  
For all that is in the world, the lust of the
flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the
pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of
the world.  And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the
will of God abideth for ever.”

If a prophet, one speaking in the name of
God, could not fool some, he would never
make it as a false prophet; but if he can
deceive many it is both near the end of the
Falling Away and he is a very good false
prophet.  “Of the world” prophets, Christians
and Christian speakers have never changed
since this above in I John 2:15-17 was
written: in order to appeal to the world and in
order to be popular in that appealing
message, the message appeals toward
worldly ways of lust of the flesh or lust of the
eyes, or the most subtle lust drawing away
from God the Father, the pride of life, which
is what the world wants to hear and to follow
any way.
While a saying afloat in the world is “You can
fool some of the people, all of the time; and
fool are of the people some of the time; but
you can't fool all of the people all of the time.”
Well, that needs to be modified in light of the
great ENd predictions by Jesus of Matthew
24, in particular 24:11-14.

“And many false prophets shall rise, and
shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the
love of many shall wax cold.
But he that shall endure unto the end, the
same shall be saved.
And this gospel of the kingdom shall be
preached in all the world for a witness
unto all nations; and then shall the end
come."

False prophets use the same buzz words of
the Bible, but not necessarily the “pattern of
sound words” of the Bible, but they take a
little from the world in order to be tasteful
and politically correct.  They do not want you
to believe that any thing is wrong with the
world in which you live, that anything needs
to change, and that the same oh same oh is
going to last another 100 years or more; or
consistently with the subtle ways of Satan
they jump to the other extreme in their
appeals to flesh, eyes, and pride—they give
you hope that everything of this world not of
the Father you want, that you feel, that you
see, and you envision can be yours right
now or in a couple of years.  The pass out
world pastries like candy, and it is eaten up.  
False prophets, looking like just any other
prophet or man of God, know you like
worldly optimism of two cars and a boat in
every garage and either an oil well or a gold
mine in your back yard, and knowing that it is
not likely for the millions that while there
every word, have convinced themselves that
there is more value in just the false
optimisms in listeners hearts than the reality
of obtaining, also realizing that they will not
be in your home and life when the deceptive
realities hit you,  And for the 1 % that the
world averages catch up with in the old
classical “gospel of wealth and corollary of
success”, what then, “For what does it profit
a man that he gain the whole world and lose
his own soul, or what shall a man give in
exchange for his soul.”

How then do we modify the saying about
“some of the people and all of the people”.  
Well, the world reality is that according to
Jesus in Matthew 24 this is a drastically
changing world, the outcome is not good for
most of the people, the way of destruction is
the broad super highway, and the narrow
way is not the way of comfort and leisure all
the time.  You will never hear these words of
Matthew 24:11-14 because being wiser than
the children of light, they know the popular
crowds that follow them will never listen as
that is not what the people want to hear.  Not
only are the forbidden loves for this world
not heard from their lips but also the warning
words of Jesus like:
(1) You are living in a time and environment
that many false Prophets exist.  They are
here and now and right in your backyard if
you live close to the church and tune into TV;
and you have chosen one of them as the
best preacher in the world.
(2) Even as the difference between the
“many” and the “few” is the same as the
majority and minority, many of you and your
friends and fellow listeners and church
members are DECEIVED!  Nobody likes to
think that they have been fooled or deceived,
and that they can not recognize a real
prophet from a false prophet.
(3) Do you doubt that these times today are
times of an increase in sin and lawlessness,
then look around you and listen to the news,
not only in the world but also in this country.
(4) Do you think it strange like Jesus taught
that the love for Christ, God, and the Bible
will be indirectly proportional to this increase
in sin and lawlessness; that is, as sin
abounds, the love of many Christians
decreases.  You know that is one of the
reason you can not see and hear right, that
sin of your environment has cluttered your
vision and darkened your light.
(5) Now, and this is part of the modification
of “all of the people and some of the people”
--there is during this falling away, a few that
will endure to the END and be saved.
(6) The END will come when the gospel is
preached to every nation, and do you not
also see that this has happened and nearly
so happened?
