24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
2 Peter 2:19
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
The devil can work through people (false Christs and prophets) to perform signs and wonders—and this is where the difference is—but he will never lead people (unbelievers) to the path of true salvation.
What is true salvation?
Let me explain it this way.True salvation comes about when a person completely turns away from his or her sins, and goes on from there to fulfill his or her God given purpose by faith.
True salvation goes beyond confessing or reciting something you don\’t understand and claiming you a born again or a Christian afterwards. (Many have recited and confessed the sinners prayer, but the question is are their lives any different? No).
So how does salvation come?
By grace through FAITH.
God said, and what He said is confirmed through the signs and wonders; This builds faith and with faith comes salvation. The signs and wonders performed by false prophets, does not build our faith in God, but rather faith in some \”prophet\”—a person representing the devil on this earth.
Signs and wonders without real or true salvation and transformation is of the devil.
