Darkness within the Light (Exposing Wolves in Sheep Clothing) – 4


wolves in sheep clothing


The destructive seeds of false ministries and ministers

False ministers and dark (corrupt) churches will become weak if we expose their deceptive works and unreasonable wickedness. As stated in the previous article, false ministers and dark ministries are the wolves in sheep's clothing.

False ministers cover their wickedness with fake love, false miracles, false prophecies, and false spirituality. Falling into the prison of false ministries and dark ministers can hinder your blessings. Many people have become jobless because of false ministers.

Innocent and ignorant people have lost their assets and families because of false ministers. Some people are in psychiatric hospitals because of false ministers and dark ministries. Families are breaking because of false ministers.

Many husbands and wives are separating and divorcing because of false ministers and dark ministries. If we don’t expose false ministers and dark churches, they will cause more harm to the body of Christ Jesus, the public, and organizations.

We cannot sit idle and allow these heartless and demonic ministers and ministries to destroy families, organizations, businesses, and churches. We must expose them because the Holy Bible commands us to do it. In my previous article, I revealed some ways to detect false ministers and faithful ministries. Kindly read my previous articles related to this article for a better understanding.


Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

It is not my pleasure to destroy someone’s ministry. My responsibility as a Christian leader is to expose the wickedness in our churches, industries, and organizations. If you are not watchful and prayerful, you can fall into the traps of false ministers and dark ministries.

False ministers produce dark ministries. As stated, they are wolves in sheep's clothing. Wolves are deceptive. They attack without mercy. Wolves feed on weak animals. They are predators. Wolves can kill sheep and domestic animals. A sheep is a calm and obedient animal. If you read the Holy Bible, you will understand that Christ Jesus identified Christian believers as sheep and lambs.


My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

John 10:27 KJV

If sheep symbolize Christian believers, we must be careful of wolves. A wolf can easily kill a sheep if the shepherd is absent. If we allow the wolves to roam within the flock, they will steal, destroy, and kill the sheep (the Church).

Wolves are greedy and selfish animals. We cannot allow greedy and selfish ministers and ministries to control the sheep. If you read the book of John, Christ Jesus identified Christian believers as sheep and lambs.


So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

John 21:15-17 KJV

Christ Jesus commanded Peter to feed the lambs and sheep. Christian believers are the lambs and sheep. You need a shepherd, not a wolf. A shepherd cares for the sheep and lambs. Wolves cannot care for sheep and lambs!

They will devour them. The wolves will feed on the lambs. We must not allow the wolves to destroy the sheep. We are shepherds of God’s flocks. Christ Jesus is the Chief Lamb. He is the Lamb of God.

We (Christian believers) are the lamb of Christ Jesus. We must act like lions when the wolves enter the flock. We must chase the wolves (false Christians) out of the flock lest they destroy and kill us (sheep).


Christ Jesus warns us of false ministers.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Matthew 7:15 KJV

Christ Jesus said we must be cautious of false prophets (apostles, pastors, evangelists, and Christians). False ministers act like sheep (Christian believers). However, they are voracious, ferocious, angry, and hungry wolves (false leaders).

It is difficult to discern the heart of people if you are not born again. False ministers hide their wickedness. Their faces might look holy, righteous, and obedient. However, their heart is corrupt.

False ministers and ministries don’t care about the sheep. They are interested in the sheep’s food (assets). When they see that you have nothing to give, they ignore you. False ministers work in groups. They scout for wealthy sheep and steal their food. We must be watchful of such ministers and dark churches because their heart is corrupt!


Apostle Paul exposes the false minister and ministries

Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the Church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.

Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

Acts 20:28-31 KJV

Apostle Paul warned the Church about the wolves in sheep's clothing. Paul identified the Church as a flock. He stated that we must feed the flock (the Church) with the Word (the Holy Bible). In verse twenty-nine of Acts chapter twenty, Paul stated that grievous wolves will enter the Church.

These wolves will not spare the flock. They will afflict the Church. False ministers do not draw people to Christ Jesus. They draw people to themselves. False ministers teach heresies. Their doctrine does not agree with the Word of God (the Holy Bible).

As Apostle Paul stated, they speak perverse things. One key to identifying false ministers and dark Churches is that they say perverse things. Their words are full of insult. Their words lure people into sexual sins.

False minister’s words attract demons. If a minister of God only draws men to himself, he is dishonest. Faithful ministers draw men to Christ Jesus. False ministers do not have the shepherd's heart. It is time we watch. We must be vigilant lest they take advantage of us (meditate on 2 Corinthians 2:11).


Apostle Paul’s warning to the Church

Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.

2 Thessalonians 3:6 KJV

In his letters to the Church in Thessalonica, Apostle Paul commanded the Church to disconnect from “Christians” who walk and live outside the Kingdom tradition. The Church is a Kingdom. We follow the principles of the Word (the Holy Bible).

We are supposed to act like Christ Jesus. People must see the fruits of the Holy Spirit in our lives. You cannot identify with Christian believers and live anyhow. Freely download and read my books, who is a Christian Believer and the Forty Types of Christians, for more profound revelation.

The moment you become a Christian believer, you submit to the tradition (customs) of the Church (the body of Christ Jesus). It doesn’t matter your tradition. You must submit to the principles of the Word (the Holy Bible).

This is not legalism or religiosity. It’s a Kingdom principle. You cannot dress like an unbeliever and call yourself a Christian believer. In some companies, the employees follow the laws of the industry.

If you are in the military, you follow their dress code and mindset. If you work in a bank, hospital, or law court, you follow their code of conduct. In the same way, Christianity has its code of conduct.

We dress modestly (see 1 Timothy 2:9). Our lifestyle differs from the world. Christian believers don’t substitute divine principles with worldly principles. We don’t dress like harlots. Christian believers have moral integrity. However, false Churches and false minister’s lifestyle disagrees with the Word.


How Apostle Paul commands the Church to behave when they encounter false ministers

…if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.

Yet count him not as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

2 Thessalonians 3:14-15 KJV

Apostle Paul further writes that we should not relate with “Christians” who disobey the Word. However, we should not see them as enemies. We must rebuke false Christians in love. One thing about false ministers and dark ministries is that most are unrepentant. Baby Christian believers repent when rebuked with the Word. However, despite the rebuke, false Christians and dark Churches continue in their wickedness, heresies, and deception.


Apostle Paul’s warning to the Church

Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Romans 16:17-18 KJV

We must mark people who propagate false teachings. Christians and Churches whose teachings, lifestyles, and doctrines contradict God's Word are false. They are wolves in sheep's clothing! We must mark ministers and ministries whose teachings cause division in the body of Christ.

We must avoid them because their false teachings can corrupt us (meditate on 1 Corinthians 15:33). As Paul stated, such ministers do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ. False ministers serve demi gods, demons, the flesh, and Satan.

They only care about their stomachs. Carnality is their lifestyle. False ministers exalt the works of the flesh above the ways of the Holy Spirit. They use deceptive and seductive words to control ignorant, innocent, and weak-minded people.


David’s behavior towards deceptive congregations

Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore I shall not slide.

Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

I have not sat with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

I have hated the congregation of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

Psalms 26:1-5 KJV

David declared that he did not sit with deceptive people. David hated false Churches. It is time we avoid false ministries and dark ministers. We cannot equally unite with unbelievers because they will corrupt us with their erroneous philosophy and demonic doctrines. We can preach to them. We can preach to unbelievers through our godly lifestyle. However, we must not equally yoke with them (see 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).


Apostle Paul's final warning about false ministries

I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.

Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

1 Corinthians 10:20-21 KJV

It is time to create some gaps. You cannot be a child of God and be a child of the devil. Staying in false ministries puts your life and those connected to you in danger. Disconnect from false churches and deceptive ministers.

Connect with true Churches and faithful ministers. The Holy Spirit will help you if you disconnect from false ministries and demonic ministers. He will guide you to the right path when you associate with the true light (meditate on 2 Corinthians 6:14-18).
