18 And it happened that while He was praying alone, the disciples were with Him, and He questioned them, saying, “Who do the people say that I am?” 19 They answered and said, “John the Baptist, and others say Elijah; but others, that one of the prophets of old has risen again.” 20 And He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered and said, “The Christ of God.” Luke 9:18-20 (NASB)
Since this blog has existed (2006) we have looked at the growing apostasy that appears to be consuming the Church. This has caused many of us anguish and grief along with some growing excitement in anticipation of the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ….
However, let us not forget that there are many who claim to be “christian” who view what we have been discussing and exploring as the very thing they are trying to accomplish. They view our exposition of it as “interference” and “over reaction.” Over the years, among the comments I did not post and ping backs that I refused were some who described our study as a growing train wreck or a study in delusion.
We must never forget that only those who have the truth of God written on their hearts can see the veracity of these things. Only they have the ability to escape the delusion that is swiftly coming upon the earth. I had some requests to write something about the real Christ instead of the counterfeit. It is important that we know more about Him so that we will recognize the impostor. We will do that in this post along with the markings of a genuine disciple, one who has the truth of God written on his or her heart.
