Wolves in Christian Clothing

How will you know them? …..by their fruits you will know them.

The wolf does not show loving, kind, positive fruit. The wolf has no joy. The wolf spits out venom and hate. The wolf exhibits the opposite of the fruits of the spirit.

Try hard to remember this because we come across all kinds.

For the fruit of the spirit is:

1)Love

2) Joy

3) Peace

4) Patience

5) Faithfulness

6) Gentleness

7) Goodness

8) Kindness

9) Self Control

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. Matthew 7:15

Behold the ravenous wolf, exhibiting the opposite of the fruits of the spirit within his or her ministry:

Español: Lobo en el zoo de Kolmården (Suecia).1) Hate/ugliness/no love

2) Misery/miserable/no joy

3) War/fighting/bickering

4) Angst/haste/demanding

5) Infidelity/unloyal

6) Harshness/bitterness

7) Bad/not good/evil

8) Unkind/mean/hateful

9) Raging/angry/lacking calm

The Message (MSG)
A Simple Guide for Behavior

+

Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults— unless, of course, you want the same treatment. That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging. It’s easy to see a smudge on your neighbor’s face and be oblivious to the ugly sneer on your own. Do you have the nerve to say, ‘Let me wash your face for you,’ when your own face is distorted by contempt? It’s this whole traveling road-show mentality all over again, playing a holier-than-thou part instead of just living your part. Wipe that ugly sneer off your own face, and you might be fit to offer a washcloth to your neighbor.” Matthew 7: 1-5

“I can see it now—at the Final Judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, ‘Master, we preached the Message, we bashed the demons, our God-sponsored projects had everyone talking.’ And do you know what I am going to say? ‘You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don’t impress me one bit. You’re out of here.” Matthew 7: 22-23

When you knock on a door, be courteous in your greeting. If they welcome you, be gentle in your conversation. If they don’t welcome you, quietly withdraw. Don’t make a scene. Shrug your shoulders and be on your way. You can be sure that on Judgment Day they’ll be mighty sorry—but it’s no concern of yours now. Matthew 8: 2-15

16 “Stay alert. This is hazardous work I’m assigning you. You’re going to be like sheep running through a wolf pack, so don’t call attention to yourselves. Be as cunning as a snake, inoffensive as a dove. Matthew 8: 16

  1. This is truly a great an inspiring article. Thank you for sharing, and may God bless you that you may continue to dig deeper and bring forth the truth of His word that has been hidden from some of our eyes. May you find in all that you do here in sharing, peace, power, purpose and prosperity. Much love to you My Friend. Pastor Davis

  2. So nice to say. So hard to do…

  3. […] ‘Things to do today’, (mrsmendiola.wordpress.com) ‘Wolves in Christian clothing’ (lifeofafemalebiblewarrior.wordpress.com) […]

  4. […] Wolves In Sheep’s Clothing (Life Of A Female Bible Warrior) I haven’t been the best at recognizing wolves in my past, but I’m getting better at it. Have started putting people into “these people feed me truth” and “these people need to hear more truth” categories in my life. […]

  5. I started to write a reply here about the experience I’m having with my Pastor and long-time friend who I feel may now be a Sheep in Wolves’ clothing. But, it was getting so long I decided I’m going to write a post about it instead on my blog. I submit that even the lead sheep can be a dirty one!

  6. I’ll have to pop over there and read your posting, Lost. I’ve been down sick with a cold that my teen daughter gave me. I look forward to reading your post soon and thanks for posting here!

  7. Thanks for the pingback!

  8. You can say that again, Ask me. It is difficult to do.

  9. Thank you, Pastor Davis, I’m so glad you enjoyed it.
