The subtle deception, wrapped in sheep’s wool, catching Christians who are not alert. And then when the deception is pointed out to them they defend the false teacher. Does that make sense?

I find myself in a prayer war for the spiritual welfare of some dearly loved people.

“You stupid people of Galatia! Who put you under an evil spell? Wasn’t Christ Jesus’ crucifixion clearly described to you? I want to learn only one thing from you. Did you receive the Spirit by your own efforts to follow the laws in the Scriptures or by believing what you heard? Are you that stupid? Did you begin in a spiritual way only to end up doing things in a human way? Did you suffer so much for nothing? I doubt that it was for nothing! Does God supply you with the Spirit and work miracles among you through your own efforts or through believing what you heard?” (Galatians 3:1-5 God’s Word ©).

“So, people who think they are standing firmly should be careful that they don’t fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12 God’s Word ©).

I join with you who find yourself in the same situation.

“Pray in the Spirit in every situation. Use every kind of prayer and request there is. For the same reason be alert. Use every kind of effort and make every kind of request for all of God’s people” (Ephesians 6:18 God’s Word ©).
