a Single Eye Results in One Not Being Not Deceived
The Christian must cooperate
with God by obeying the Lord Jesus Christ with a single eye in order to keep from being deceived.
"The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine
eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. "(Being full of light is
being in a state of not being deceived.)
But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of
darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that
In the next verse Jesus explained what he was talking
about: "No man can serve two masters. . . Ye cannot serve God and
mammon." (See Mt. 6:22-24)
If you have a single eye (you
obey God with single-hearted determination) you will repent when God reveals things in your life that are not
pleasing in his sight, including false doctrines and false
of theology. In this way you are kept from
If you have an evil eye (obedience to God is not foremost in your heart and mind) the
light that is in you will become darkness and you have opened the door to
deception. Defending your own sin (and the sin of those you follow) is also
indicative of an evil eye. Repent and God will restore you.
God Commands His People: Let "No
Man Deceive You"
When Jesus' disciples asked him to tell them when these
things shall be, and what shall be the sign of his coming and of the end of the
world, (Mt. 24:3) he answered them with a command: "Take heed that no man
deceive you." He did not say this could not happen; on the contrary, he
commanded them to not allow it to happen.
Jesus told his disciples: "Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo,
here is Christ, or there: believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs,
and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders: insomuch that, if it
were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Mt. 24:24
The amount of money Satan's followers are
spending to deceive the elect is staggering. They will give their last dime
to fund propaganda campaigns in attempts to cause Christians to believe their
palatable lies and reject the hard sayings of God's word. And they are
presently succeeding to a large extent!
Witches know very well that God's
people can be deceived, and work toward this end, even as their infiltrators who
have positions of influence in the Christian church preach that
this can never happen.
The elect will not be deceived because they
have a single eye and a single master: The
Lord Jesus Christ.
