Be very careful who you allow in your circle and around your family. It’s sad with how much these wolves have infiltrated the church and created so much distrust in not only non-Christians, but Christians alike. Eventually people’s true colors show and the mask falls off if there is a mask, we just have to look, observe, listen a lot, ask good questions and test the spirits. Let’s not be tossed to and fro brothers and sisters in Christ.
It’s pretty sad these wolves do most of their work effortless because a lot of them divide by just gossiping. We as Christians should not just take what someone says about someone else and run away with it. There’s always more facts, more sides to a story, and it’s your responsibility to find out if you plan on judging and weighing in on what was said …
Here are some signs to watch out for with people. Just one of these signs may not indicate that person is a wolf, but we still must be observant:
Watch out for people who never take your feelings into consideration, people who you never hear say they’re sorry.
Watch out for people who just nod there head and agree at whatever you say, for people who don’t give you any eye contact or the other extreme, for people who give you way too much intense eye contact ….
Watch out for people who don’t really listen to you, who don’t allow you to fully make your point by interrupting you constantly, trying to keep too much control over the conversation, people who talk way too much. Don’t just take their words at face value, watch if there actions match up with their words ….
Watch out for people who are only there for you when it’s convenient for them, who always refuse to help you when you need help, and who are only there for you when they need something from you in return instead of just enjoying their friendship with you. Watch out for people who attempt to isolate you from your other friends and family, watch out for people who pressure you into giving them an answer ‘now’, watch out for people who are giving you lavish flattery right away ….
Don’t bite the bait, pray and ask God for discernment and get opinions from other people. Some bait that wolves will use to get close to you in order to use you or mislead you are: compassion, loneliness, financial need, ego, and some of them are very smooth operators knowing just what to say so be very cautious when something seems too good to be true or extra appealing, they love to tickle your ears. Many will come in the name of Jesus but do they confess that Jesus is Lord with their life? Are they denying Christ by the way they life?
(Matthew 10:16) “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.”

(2 Corinthians 11:13-15) “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
(Ezekiel 22:27) “Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.”

(Ecclesiastes 10:14) “A fool also is full of words: a man cannot tell what shall be; and what shall be after him, who can tell him?”
(Romans 16:17-18) “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.
