Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me

The Sheep's Clothing Will Soon Be Stripped From The Wolf's Back!

2Ti 3:5  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

A hypocrite may be both the fairest creature and the foulest creature in the world!

He may be fairest outwardly in the eyes of man and foulest inwardly in the sight of God.

How commonly do such unclean swans cover their black flesh with their white feathers! 

Though such wear the mantle of Samuel-they should bear the name of Satan!

Many appear righteous who are only righteous in appearance. 

But while they are deceiving others with the false shows of holiness...they are also deceiving themselves with the false hopes of happiness.

The hypocrite would not willingly appear evil and yet would inwardly be evil. He would gladly be accounted godly and yet would not be godly.

What will a form of godliness do for you if you deny the power thereof?

Those who have the power of godliness, cannot deny the form; while those who have the form of godliness, may deny the power.

Hypocrites resemble looking-glasses which present faces that are not in them.

Oh, how desirous are men to put the fairest gloves upon the foulest hands; and the finest paint upon the rottenest posts!

Hypocrites are better in show than in substance.

They are like painted tombs which enclose decayed bones. 

That is a sad charge, which the God of truth brings against certain false professors, "I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and are not but are the synagogue of Satan!"

A false friend is worse than an open enemy.

A painted harlot is less dangerous than a painted hypocrite.

A treacherous Judas is more abhorred by God than a bloody Pilate!

Professors! Remember...the sheep's clothing will soon be stripped from the wolf's back!

The velvet plaster of profession shall not always conceal the offensive ulcer of corruption.

The blazing lamps of foolish virgins may light them to the bridegroom's gate but not into His chamber.

Either get the nature of Christ within you or take the name of Christ away from you.

A bad man is certainly the worst when he is seemingly the best.

We must not account everyone a soldier who swaggers with a sword. 

A rusty sword may frequently be found in a highly decorated scabbard.

What good is it to have our hands as white as snow if our hearts are as black as the bottomless pit!

Such professors resemble soap bubbles...smooth and pretty without-yet only filled with air!

A man may wear the Savior's livery and yet be busied in Satan's drudgery!

The skin of an apple may be fair when it is rotten at the core!

Though all gold may glitter yet all is not gold that glitters.

The worst hypocrite may have the color of gold but not the value of gold!
