Scripture-Study List: The Great Apostasy
The Old-Testament prophet Isaiah foresaw the future apostasy, saying the prophets would be “covered.”
- For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.
Amos, another Old-Testament prophet, foresaw a day when the word of the Lord would not be had on the earth.
- Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
- And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
Jesus Christ Himself warned of false prophets that would try to lead the early Church astray.
