The “Pseudo-Christos” – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 16th



(Be Vigilant And Refuse To Be Deceived)

TO THE BIBLE: 2 Thessalonians 2:3
“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.”

In John 5:43, Jesus said, “I have come in My Father’s name, and you do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive.” The Lord Jesus was prophesying here about the “pseudo-christos”—a false Christ, one who falsely lays claim to the name and office of the Messiah.

The Lord did teach that there’d be false Christs and false prophets. In other parts of the Bible, like 1 John 2:18, the term used is “antichrist,” which is “antichristos” in Greek, meaning instead of Christ, against Christ, one who puts himself in the place of Christ or opposes Christ.

This lines up with the “pseudo-christos.” So, when Jesus said, “…If another comes in his own name, him you will receive,” He knew what He was talking about.

The Bible tells us that this antichrist will be a deceiver and a liar, and that major religious leaders will endorse him.

But that’s no surprise to us because there were people like that in Bible days who endorsed the false prophets and killed God’s prophets (Matthew 23:31). It’s the same in the world today; many have chosen to be deceived.

Satan’s modus operandi is based on deception and misrepresentations. Therefore, remain vigilant and alert in the spirit. Always go for the truth of God’s Word!

The Bible says, “Don’t be fooled by those who speak their empty words and deceptive teachings telling you otherwise. This is what brings God’s anger upon the rebellious!” (Ephesians 5:6 TPT).

We’re in the closing period of this present age; the Lord is coming soon. Be alert and ready!

Gracious Lord, thank you for the illumination that I’ve received from your Word, exposing the cunning devices of Satan and his cohorts in these last days. The eyes of my understanding are flooded with light; I’m alert and sensitive, ready for the coming of the Lord. Amen.
