They’ll only ever show you

What they want you to only see,

Where there’s a monumental cover up

That’s driven by vanity.

They will only reveal

What your ears want to hear,

With whatever tickles them

In a direction they will steer.

Their smiles are fake

Where there’s a hidden agenda too,

To promote their lies and heresy

With all they say and do.

They will definitely mislead

And they will make you go astray,

With every false doctrine

Or with any suggestions made.

They appear beautiful externally

But inside are filled with greed,

They’re white washed tombs filled with dead men’s bones

But as angels appear to be.

Because their message will appear

To be genuine indeed,

But unless we use discernment

It will plant wrong types of seed.

They are like a hireling

Not concerned for the sheep,

And focused on money and status instead

And deceive those who are asleep.

Because they’re not focused on the cross

Or the blood shed at Calvary,

They never mention sin

Or a hell for eternity.

They think they’re right with a holy God

And that they’re truly covered by grace,

But deception is their blanket

As they refuse to run the race.

They don’t speak with humility

Where there’s proof they have been broken,

But rely on charm and their prosperity

With every word that’s spoken.

False teachers are everywhere

And unless God’s word is the standard,

There will be philosophy and deceit

Where His truth is tampered.

But the true shepherd shares the gospel

And is not afraid of same,

But will lovingly warn with sincere love

So deception will not remain.

Unless repentance does take place

There are consequences for eternity,

Because true remorse will produce good fruit

That will be heard and seen.

It’s time to get right with God

As the days draw to a close,

And no more games or pretences

Because God truly sees and knows!
