Our Lord Jesus says: “[BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS], which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

“[NO SERVANT CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS]: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. [YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON]” (Luke 16:13).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, ‘[VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT A RICH MAN SHALL HARDLY ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN]’. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:23-24).
“BELOVED, [BELIEVE NOT EVERY SPIRIT, BUT TRY THE SPIRITS WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD]: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: [EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS OF GOD]: And [EVERY SPIRIT THAT CONFESSETH NOT THAT JESUS CHRIST IS COME IN THE FLESH IS NOT OF GOD: AND THIS IS THAT SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST], whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world” (1 John 4:1-3).
“For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 1:7).
“[FOR SUCH ARE FALSE APOSTLES, DECEITFUL WORKERS, TRANSFORMING THEMSELVES INTO THE APOSTLES OF CHRIST]. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; [WHOSE END SHALL BE ACCORDING TO THEIR WORKS]” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).
“[TAKE HEED, AND BEWARE OF COVETOUSNESS]: for [A MAN’S LIFE CONSISTETH NOT IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THE THINGS] which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15).
“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:31).
