Snakes hiss with a tongue in two ways, just like the serpent in the garden of Eden. They talk with a split tongue one part of that tongue has truth with it, then the other half of that tongue has lies.
Together it makes a snake tongue truth mixed with lies to deceive and pull others into the deception. One cannot mix truth with lies and there are truths when it comes to the Word of God that cannot be tampered with.
Those deceiving others often mix a lot of truth with a lot of lies. With biblical doctrine. The first one that is told is the questioning of the deity of Christ, The serpent uses many to say hath God said ? Was Jesus the creator ? Is Jesus God ? Let the Word of God answer that one.
Here is one way to tell if you have encountered a snake or a wolf because they will deny these facts of scripture, that Jesus is God who came in the flesh.
1 Timothy 3:16
And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Revelation 1:7 – 8
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty
I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
This is the first test the second test is those who deny that The Holy Spirit is a male, He is male because Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit, the virgin birth. A female spirit cannot have seed it is insulting to call the Holy Spirit a woman Spirit, that is not biblical. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Father God. If you run into anyone denying this you may have encountered a snake or a wolf so here is more scripture to prove this fact.
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Avoid anyone teaching contrary if they do it is the split tongue snake speaking hath God said ? There two fact should be red flags if it is denied, If it has been denied in any teaching by anyone you have indeed run into a split tongue snake or a wolf . My advice is to run from it.
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
2 Corinthians 6:14
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
