“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”
That was the thunderous directive declared by the “Wizard of Oz” to Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion. Dorothy’s tiny terrier Toto had pulled back the curtain that kept the true identity of “The Wizard” a secret. Instead of being “Oz, the Great and Powerful,” the “wizard” was revealed by the pup to be an ordinary man, a con artist, practicing the art of smoke and mirrors to impress the people with his faked naked powers.
If man is not careful he will follow the “Wizard of Oz” instead of the one true God. Many follow blindly the “great wizard” of false doctrine – being deceived through the art of smoke and mirrors.
Beloved, let’s “pull the curtain back” and be as the Bereans, who “received the word with all readiness of the mind, examining the Scriptures daily, whether these things were so” (Acts 17:11). “Give diligence [study – KJV] to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15).
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
