Wolf in Sheep's clothing

Who are the “Wolves in Sheep’s clothing”?

Have you ever pondered these verses and asked the Lord their true meaning?

“Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravaging wolves Matt 7:15

So, what does it mean to be a “sheep” and to be in “sheep’s clothing”?  Is this a religious or non-religious person?  Why are they “ravaging wolves”?  Who is this referring to?

Let’s look at Ezekiel 22.

“Son of man, say to her, ‘You are a land that is not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation.’ 25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in her midst like a roaring lion tearing the prey. They have devoured lives; they have taken treasure and precious things; they have made many widows in the midst of her. 26 Her priests have done violence to My law and have profaned My holy things; they have made no distinction between the holy and the profane, and they have not taught the difference between the unclean and the clean; and they hide their eyes from My sabbaths, and I am profaned among them. 27 Her princes within her are like wolves tearing the prey, by shedding blood and destroying lives in order to get dishonest gain. 28 Her prophets have smeared whitewash for them, seeing false visions and divining lies for them, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord God,’ when the Lord has not spoken Ez 22:24-28

And we often aggressively defend our own position as if in a life and death struggle.  The question?

“Does the Bible have any CONTRADICTIONS”? 

There, I said it.  The cat’s out of the bag.

So, what you think?  Are there any contradictions in the Bible?

Have you looked into it out yourself

Are feelings real?

Do you ever wake up one morning and suddenly everything appears dark and grim?

Situations and “things” that you viewed as very positive just the day before no longer appear that way at all.   As a matter of fact, they seem to be a burden rather than a blessing.

You feel like you were somehow blindsided by a Mac truck in the middle of the highway.   No, you feel you are STILL BEING RUN OVER by a Mac truck.

And is backing up and moving forward over and over.

You can’t even get a perspective to see what is happening.  You just hear the engine rev and see the tires coming again.

If you could only get out from under “it” to see what in the world is going on.

Whatever “it” is.Continue reading
