A Fake Friend is An Enemy in Disguise
A fake friend will betray you. They will pretend to support you while working behind your back making efforts to hinder your progress. The fake friend hangs around to gather information about you, to use against you. They pretend they care with their fake hugs and kisses. It is a way for them to gain your trust. Be aware of the fake friend’s hug and kiss approach. It is a weapon laced with the poison of betrayal, to cause harm.
Remember Judas, the disciple that was a fake friend of Jesus? He pointed him out to those who captured him, with the kiss of betrayal. It was Judas who led Jesus enemies to him, because he knew where he would be. Jesus was betrayed by Judas for money. The purpose was to stop his work by killing him.
The fake friend purpose is to gain something in return, for the cost of betrayal that will result in harm. Jesus knew Judas was a fake friend, and that he would betray him.
During conversation while eating with his disciples, Jesus informed them, "Verily I say unto you, one of you which eat with me will betray me." Later, during the meal after having been asked several times, who would be the disciple to betray him? He answered them, “It is one of the twelve, that dippeth with me in the dish.”
When Judas approached Jesus leading a group of his enemies with weapons, his plan was to identify him to his enemies by using the kiss. When he came near Jesus to kiss him, Jesus said to him, “Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a Kiss?”
We can prevent fake friends, from using our personal information against us, by not giving any information to them. Never trust a fake friend.
