Incredibly, another horrific incident has occurred involving a small boy, but this time with deadly consequences. Suddenly, an alligator snatched the child while he was playing in 12 inches of water at the Disney Grand Floridian Resort & Spa’s Seven Seas Lagoon in Orlando. The only warning given the Nebraska family were signs stating, ‘No Swimming.’ Had there been signs explaining the reason – No Swimming Due to Alligators – no sane parent would have allowed their child in the water. For that matter, no sane vacationer would have casually relaxed on the man-made beach knowing alligators have legs and can run 20 mph. Here we have another spiritual lesson: naiveté and ignorance can be eternally deadly to the soul when seduced into a false sense of security. Satan’s ministers do not come waving warning signs which state, “Beware Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing.” In fact, like the Germans in WW II who dressed as Polish soldiers in order to take the Poles by surprise, Satan’s ministers pose as bona fide Christians, carrying credentials from their seminaries and denominations which seduce the naïve and ignorant into believing their every word. A prime example of such a deceiver in our day is Joel Osteen. Prior to Joel’s rise to power, the Rev. Dr. Billy Graham held the title of ‘Grand Deceiver,’ as he led untold millions into believing the Pope and Roman Catholic Church are of God, and are to be honored as such. Like the cunning alligator who snatches unwary victims, Satan’s false prophets are those whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord (Jude 1:4 NIV). May God grant the reader the full armor of God by which Christians can discern, disarm and expose the evil among us. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them (Ephesians 5:11 ESV).
