Mark 13: 21-22 ” At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘Look, there he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect – if that were possible.”

Jesus warns us of people who will try to seduce us away from the truth.  Pseudo-christs  acknowledge Jesus…but then claim to actually  be Him, while  anti-Christs  oppose the true Jesus Christ and His power.  Both will amaze the multitudes with wonders…both come in sheep’s clothing to deceive the nations.  But the very last phrase of this scripture gives all Christians confidence.  “…to deceive the elect – if that were possible.”  The elect are us…chosen by God, and we won’t be deceived, for  with the prompting of the Holy Spirit we will be able to discern good from evil…a testing of the spirits if you will, to know deep down when something just doesn’t look or sound right.
