'Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.' Matthew 7:15-16

'For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock. Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.' Acts 20:29-31

But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction.2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words .2 Peter 2:1-3


Paul sent Timothy to get rid of the wolves
Wolves are beautiful creatures but once humans
Start to take on the characteristics of a wolf
They become dangerous and ruthless—

Wolves in the church appear as godly men
Wolves in the church are inwardly ravenous
Wolves are self-serving—
Interested primarily in what they can get for themselves
Wolves weigh people down
Wolves act as if they are superior to others
Wolves neglect doctrine in the church
Wolves draw disciples after themselves

Timothy had to confront these wolves
Today many want to join the wolves and are scared of
Confronting them because of fear that they
Will be ostracised and referred to as the enemy
However, we must confront these wolves because
A church can stand anything from the outside but
When it is attacked from the inside, then
It is a different matter and calls for an immediate response

Paul sent Timothy to get rid of the wolves because
The biggest battles are in the church—
Let us confront the wolves and let us
Not be too concerned if men insult us

For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:18

Mark Frank
