"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;" 2 Thessalonians 2:3
The wise virgin believer must be aware of the "many false prophets" we were repeatedly warned about in this late hour, some who are using signs of these end times and sensationalism to 1. make themselves rich, 2. incapacitate the believer's affections from the Savior and onto the mere signs.
The delusion goes deep into what appears to be the remnant. It's right in our midst (Acts 20:27-32). In fact, there are many who claim to be watchmen who are misleading many. Remember that Jesus says they will be wolves who wear sheep's clothing and yet are ravening or devouring wolves (Matthew 7:15).
One earmark fruit of the very few truly God-fearing servant under-shepherds is that they will constantly be exhorting you toward personal holiness in light of our LORD's return lest you miss out (Ephesians 5:25-27; 1 John 3:3; Luke 21:34-36; Matthew 25:1-13; 2 Corinthians 7:1, etc.).
False leaders today are not grounding God's people in His love and truth and in the absolute necessity of personal holiness. This also is an earmark fruit of a wolf. Instead they are building their own church or ministry empire by using the LORD's name in vain and the things concerning His kingdom for their own self-serving gain.
