Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
"If a prophet or someone who has dreams arises among you and proclaims a sign or wonder to you,
and that sign or wonder he has promised you comes about, but he says, 'Let us follow other gods,' which you have not known, 'and let us worship them,'
do not listen to that prophet's words or to that dreamer. For the LORD your God is testing you to know whether you love the LORD your God with all your heart and all your soul.
"Then if anyone tells you, 'Look, here is the Messiah! Look-- there!' do not believe it!
They will say to you, 'Look there!' or 'Look here!' Don't follow or run after them.
For as the lightning flashes from horizon to horizon and lights up the sky, so the Son of Man will be in His day.
Then He said, "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He,' and, 'The time is near.' Don't follow them.
I have come in My Father's name, yet you don't accept Me. If someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.
