" A New 'Jesus' "

Through many years of Bible study I could never understand what Jesus meant by His breathtaking statement, "For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (Matthew 24:5). Since I have watched this Scripture being fulfilled by much of the modern religious world, it is now seems clear to me. Jesus was prophesying that false prophets and false religious movements would use His name, preach with His name, and even confess faith in His name, but would be serving a different Jesus. I believe He was suggesting that the ultimate deception would be by men and women that actually say, "Jesus is the Christ," but do so only in name, not in reality.

The New "Jesus" has the same name and is preached or promoted with the same great Bible verses, but bears no recognition to the historic message of the cross. The cross-centered life, where the flesh is crucified and the self-life is denied, has no relationship to the flamboyant Christianity of today that looks more extravagant than Hollywood. The Jesus of the Bible, the risen Lord, who is presently at the Father's right hand, would be totally repulsed by the worldly hype, the godless singers, and all the fanfare that is the heart of today's church world. He would march into these unholy temples and drive out the false prophets that preach for wealth and gain. He would call them "vipers" and "hypocrites." They would hate Him today just like the Pharisees hated Him in their day. Let's look at a few clear differences between the Son of God Himself and the new "Jesus" of today's deception.

There are many further differences between the new "Jesus" and the true Jesus. Millions are being deceived. The flesh has no capacity to discern between this titillating "Jesus" that comes in lies and deceiving powers. The Word of God alone is our safety. Every believer has the responsibility to warn souls of this darkness and to help the few that are willing to listen. If Jesus warned of this false or new "Jesus," then everyone should take the facts seriously. Just because a preacher is smooth, soft, and is kind to you does not prove a thing. Is he preaching the new "Jesus" or is he preaching the old-time truth that saves? There is no excuse for the fact that you do not know better.

You can get on your knees right in your own world and surrender to the Lord Jesus Christ. Give Him all and be willing to obey all of His Words. "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4).
