Sheep And Wolves

 
        





Acts 20:29 say “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.”
 
The saying “Wolf in sheep’s clothing” simply means someone who is pretending to be something they are not. We have a lot of people in the Church pretending to be Christian, but they are not. Some are even wolves.
 
Wolves are sneaky. They watch the prey and plan the attack. We think that wolves are just false prophets, but many people I have meant were not prophets. Then how do you spot them?
 
 He or she is the one who calls secret meetings. They don’t agree how the church is being run, especially anything to do with the Spirit of God. They are worldly oriented and feel the worldly way of doing things is advantages.
They gain the trust of people and then rises up to attack, taking innocent victims with them.
 
He or she is usually talented and gifted, but not anointed. They think they know how to run the Church, without any experience or calling. They are not led by the Spirit of God. But a Spirit of faulting finding, and self-exaltation. Their goal is to take over the congregation or close it down. If they cannot close it down, they will take as many misguided, and deceived people as they can with them.
 
Where do they go? To the next church on their list. They play the victim card but have left a trail of victims, lies, and destruction behind them.
 
How did the wolf get in the church among sheep undetected? We let them in and sadly did nothing about it. When was the last time your church gave an altar call? When was the invitation to come forward to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord gave?
 
We don’t want to embarrass or offend someone, so we keep silent and treat everyone as sheep, even though they are not all sheep.
 
Galatians 5:19-21 (Amplified Bible)
"19 Now the practices of the [a]sinful nature are clearly evident: they are sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality (total irresponsibility, lack of self-control), 20 [b]idolatry, [c]sorcery, hostility, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions [that promote heresies], 21 envy, drunkenness, riotous behavior, and other things like these. I warn you beforehand, just as I did previously, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God."
 
When the church begins to look like the world, by compromising the Word of God. When Galatians 5:19-21 is evident in the lives of those who profess to be Christian, but the fruit is not there, sooner than later that Church will look more like the world, than Jesus Christ.
 
Why? When was the last time the church gave an altar call? When did we call sin, sin, and when with Godly conviction and sorrow, pray for ourselves and the people to repent of their wicked ways and turn to the living God.
 
Acts 20:28-30 "Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God, which he obtained with his own blood. I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them."
 
Romans 16:17-18 (KJV) "Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple."
