Will There Be False Messiahs?

Two interesting prophesies Jesus Christ made in the New Testament are His Second Coming and the arise of false messiahs. In our previous lesson we studied what the Second Coming will look like. In this less we examine Christ’s prophecy concerning false messiahs.

Christ’s Warning

When we study the New Testament we can learn of Christ’s prophesy against false messiahs in Matthew 24:24-26:

24 For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. See, I have told you ahead of time.

26 “So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.

Christ Warns Us Not To Follow False Teachers

If anyone comes to you and says they have Jesus Christ, recall Matthew 24:26:

“So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the wilderness,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.

In our next lesson we will examine some false messiahs that came in the name of Jesus Christ.
