Many people do not believe Jesus was the Messiah and some religious teachers are teaching that Jesus himself never claimed to be the Messiah. Is this true? It is important that you answer this question correctly, because your eternal salvation depends on what you believe.
Jesus warned of many deceivers
Matthew 24:4-5 “And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.”
Verse 11 “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”
Verses 23-24 “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
The Apostle Paul prophesied the Antichrist would claim to be God or the Messiah to some
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 “Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”
In the end time, knowing who the real Messiah is will be of eternal consequence!
