This teaching by pastor Barry Forder was given on the 25th August 2019 and is the first in a four-part study looking at the coming judgment of the Church.
Peter tells us that the time of judgment that will soon engulf this world will begin with God bringing judgment on the apostate church that has taken His Name, but is far from His will.
Jesus, Paul, Peter, John and Jude all warn that deception will abound in the last days and much of this will come from within the church, by those professing to follow and serve Christ. Sadly, the Bible tells us that many will follow these false teachers and give heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons!
In this first session, we look at the root and history of apostasy, and see that every time God meets it with judgment.
The only sure guard against deception is the Word of God. God has revealed in His word the whole history and future of the church so that we should not be in darkness or ignorant about these things.
May you be blessed and encouraged by this study.
