As I scroll social media, Facebook to be exact, I continually see posts about people’s accounts being hacked. Folks are saying if you receive a friend request from them, don’t accept it- it’s not them. One shared a link about this being a scam and another about it being a hoax. People are sending one another private messages with urgency about receiving another friend request from an individual they’re already friends with. I’ve received a few myself.
I can’t help but think of how this “warning” has spread like wildfire, and who even knows if it’s true. If it isn’t, people sure are taking it seriously, but what if it is?
At first I was seeing a lot of talk about accounts being hacked, now I’m seeing more talk of accounts being cloned.
As I was thinking about the change of words, I thought about when cloning animals was big in the news a few years ago. It was disturbing to me that scientists were/are using science to try and take over the Lord’s place of creating. Of course if you have a cloned animal and one God created, they make look alike, yet one is of (or made by) God and the other isn’t. At least that’s how I see it.
When it comes to this big thing about Facebook accounts, one is the maker of the account and one is a counterfeit.
When relating this to spritual matters, it reminds of a particular passage in the Bible.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 NKJV 13) For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14) And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.
We are told not to believe every spirit, but to test the spirits, whether they are of God. 1 John 4:1 (2 & 3)
Some people are all the time scamming, or seeing who they can get one over on; well, so is the devil. It is important we realize this is no hoax. Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.
If you get a friend request from him, don’t accept it, it’s not from God.
Thank you for reading. May God bless you and yours.
