Scripture reading for November 15th: Ezekiel 10-12, 2nd Peter 2
Key Scriptures: 2nd Peter 2:1-3 “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.”
Peter warned the church about false prophets and their activity. They would introduce destructive heresies, causing division and strife. They would promote sensuality through lies and their underlying motives would be greed. Peter promised God’s Word concerning their fate was true! God would repay.
Ezekiel 11:1-2 “The Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the east gate of the house of the Lord, which faces east. And behold, at the entrance of the gateway there were twenty-five men. . . .And He said to me, “Son of man, these are the men who devise iniquity and who give wicked counsel to this city; . .”
Prayer: Lord, help me today to discern truth from error and false teachers from true. Thank You for the promise of redemption for believers and retribution for the wicked. Amen.
