How to Discern Between the True and False Christs: 2 Must-Know Keys

First, Discernment Based on the Work

In fact, the Lord Jesus has already told us how false Christs deceive people. Matthew 24:24 says, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; so that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” From the Lord’s words, we can see that the false Christs and false prophets mainly deceive people by imitating the work of the Lord Jesus, showing signs and wonders, and make people mistakenly believe that they have authority and power. This is the false Christs’ deceptive means and their main trait. And God’s work is always new and never old. Every time God appears to work, He does not repeat the same work. This is the principle of God’s work. In regard to this, it will be clearer after we look at a few passages of God’s words.

Second, Discernment Based on the Words

God says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). “God become flesh is called Christ, and so the Christ that can give people the truth is called God. There is nothing excessive about this, for He possesses the substance of God, and possesses God’s disposition, and wisdom in His work, that are unattainable by man. Those who call themselves Christ, yet cannot do the work of God, are frauds. Christ is not merely the manifestation of God on earth, but also the particular flesh assumed by God as He carries out and completes His work among man. This flesh cannot be supplanted by just any man, but is a flesh that can adequately bear God’s work on earth, and express the disposition of God, and well represent God, and provide man with life. Sooner or later, those who impersonate Christ will all fall, for although they claim to be Christ, they possess none of the substance of Christ. And so I say that the authenticity of Christ cannot be defined by man, but is answered and decided by God Himself.
