Luke 16:21 “desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table. Moreover, the dogs came and licked his sores.”
Who are these dogs and wolves attracted to the rich men or big and rich congregations?
Mat 7:15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.”
Wolves are false prophets or apostates whose destinations is the lake of fire for they have deceived many to damnation. They are the so-called anointed of God and their distorted doctrines and heresies are accepted as new revelations. They still come in the name of Jesus and will curse and persecute whoever that exposes their deceptions.
Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
These are fallen televangelists and covetous pastors from rich mega churches. Some even indulged themselves into Satanic worship for demonic powers to deceive. Their false prophesies of healings and prosperity are seldom fulfilled. They are very rich and powerful with many thousands or millions of followers and earn the respect of many rich brethren.
2 Pet 2:21-22 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the true proverb: “A dog returns to his own vomit”, and, “a sow, having washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”
Dogs are disciples of the wolves. These are depraved pastors and Christian leaders who have forsaken the commandments of our Lord in forgiveness, godliness, mercy, love, humility, gentleness, and have turned back to their old wicked ways. They reject truth and shy away from righteous and holy living.
Mat 7:6 “Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.”
Wolves and Dogs
1 Pet 1:13-14 Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance;
2 Pet 2:20 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning.
These wolves and dogs will be more cunning and more wicked than the heathens for they know how to use the word of God (light) to mislead and deceive even the very elect. These are difficult days for our rich brethren with all these wolves and dogs around.
Mat 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
1 Tim 6:20-21 O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge— by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen.
Mat 7:22-23 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
