Beware of Scammers

Colossians 2: 6 – 15

6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, 7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding [in it] with thanksgiving.
8 Beware lest anyone cheat you [plunder you or take you captive] through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily [in bodily form]; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power [rule and authority].
11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of Christ, 12 buried with Him in baptism, in which you also were raised with Him through faith in the working of God, who raised Him from the dead. 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the [certificate of debt with its] handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

In the DST (Donnie Stewart Translation) verse 8 reads, “Beware of scammers.

To scam someone is defined as: to swindle, cheat, deceive, trick, dupe, hoodwink, double-cross, rip off, con, bamboozle, put one over on, pull a fast one on.

The devil is a scammer. Jesus said that the thief only ever comes to steal, to kill, and to destroy.

Right at the beginning in the garden the devil didn’t show up and introduce himself as the adversary, the thief, the enemy of their souls, the deceiver. He came in the serpent, pretending to be a serpent, which was just another animal in the created order over which man had been given dominion. Please note that he came in the familiar. However, the key to recognising that something wasn’t quite right was that he was offering something that could only come in a way that was contrary to what God had said.

The truth is that he was actually offering them something that they already had because they were already as like God as they ever needed to be – created in his image and likeness. When we understand that we already have everything that we will ever need then we are not going to be tempted by the offer of something that promises to add to the everything we already have.

Dè an uair a tha e?
The title of this month’s New Wine for New Wineskins is simply a question in Gaelic, “What time is it?”

Have you ever been in a situation where you have been so busy working on something that when someone has come to you and said, “Do you know what time it is?” you have had to reply that you have no idea.  All you know is that the time has passed and that it must be getting near to winding up time.

Or have you ever worked with someone who is a “clock-watcher” who kept reminding you every few minutes what the time was, and who was obviously more interested in how long it was to finishing time than they were in getting the work done?

Acts 1: 4 – 11

4 And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; 5 for John truly baptised with water, but you shall be baptised with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” 6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. 8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” 9 Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
We are to be busy working – not watching the clock!  All we need to know is that Jesus’ return is nearer now than when we first believed!  It is getting closer to finishing time!

Romans 13: 11

11 And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed.

The weapons of mass distraction that the enemy employs are really weapons of mass destruction, because he comes to steal, kill and ultimately to destroy.  How much resources of time, talent, and treasure do you think are diverted from the work of the kingdom to the study of end-time prophecy?  Especially considering that – according to our Lord Jesus Christ – this is something that we have not been given authority or responsibility for.  Do you think that maybe it is a strategy of mass distraction that the enemy of our souls hopes will result in mass destruction of many of the precious lives for whose salvation Jesus has already paid?

I have listened to and read a fair bit of the teaching from many of the multi-faceted angles on the end-time scenario and to be honest all of the conflicting views can actually be very plausible.  But is the fact that we have been given no authority over the time of the end the reason why there is so little actual revelation of truth in regard to this subject?  Personally, I think so.
