Man Up!!

MEN . . . you need to read this.

These are your unborn sons and daughters, your unborn nieces and nephews, your unborn granddaughters and grandsons.  How can you stand by and say ‘it’s a woman’s choice’?

abortion(1)

What if money was tight at your house, and you came home one day to find the dog decapitated and dismembered in your front yard?  . . . And when you went inside the house, your wife calmly told you she ‘took care of the problem’, because you could not afford to feed a dog?  Or what if the reason was because she had embarked on a career path, and could no longer spare the time to walk and feed and bathe the dog?  Or, perhaps she simply didn’t like having fur all over the house when he shed.  What if she never even asked for your input?  Would you not stare at her in abject horror and ask yourself ‘what kind of a monster does this?’?  And yet, when it comes to an unborn baby (which has TWO parents!!!) you look the other way and ‘let the woman decide’?  May I remind you . . .

‘ . . . For Adam was first formed, then Eve. And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.’  (1 Tim. 2:13-14)

Any man who has had much interaction with women knows that women make their decisions differently than men.  A woman’s decision-making process is usually heavily weighted towards feelings and intuition, while men primarily make their decisions based on logic.  Men tend to be more rational . . . women tend to be more irrational.  And nowhere is this more apparent than in situations where emotion is involved.  Women are VERY VULNERABLE TO DECEPTION, where emotion is involved.  For this reason, God designed a culture where MEN (employing logic and rational thought) would make the final decisions.  Husbands and fathers are to be the authority in the home.

However, when situations are emotionally charged, men are going to get a lot of RESISTANCE from women (and liberal/effeminate men).  A man needs to be prepared for this, and stand firm and unwavering.  Yet, many men will step aside and defer to a woman, not wanting to make her upset.  Man up!!  You ought to obey God rather than men!  (Acts 5:29)  The only thing worse than a MAN pleaser is a WOMAN pleaser!!–especially understanding that women are prone to deception, especially in matters that are emotionally charged.

Lets look for a moment, at where this all began.  We are told that in the Garden of Eden, the serpent beguiled Eve—he deceived her.  She made a terrible decision, while not entirely in her right mind.  HOWEVER, Adam (who was apparently present with her) was NOT deceived.  He knew very well that what she was doing was wrong.  For whatever his reasons may have been, he deliberately disobeyed God and joined Eve in her sinful decision—as so many weak-willed men do today, in regards to abortion.  What Adam ought RATHER to have done, was to rebuke Eve and plead with her to repent.  Then he should have brought her before God, and stood between them and interceded for her.

Men, this is what YOU also need to be doing today.  Look at these pictures and tell me that the women (mother, sisters, wife, daughters) that you know and love, are in their right minds if they would consider doing such a thing.  You must plead with them, put your foot down . . . whatever it takes to open their eyes and help them see this is wrong,  or at least to do all that you can to prevent it from happening.

Be the strong one they can lean on, if they feel they’re in a desperate situation where abortion is their only choice.  Help them to see that there are other alternatives.  Be the one who approaches things rationally and righteously, when they are vulnerable and unable to.  But above all, do NOT give in to wickedness to appease the women in your life!  As a man, God has given you specific responsibilities and HE will hold you accountable for whether or not you live up to them.

And speak up in this wicked culture.  The people who are promoting this culture of death are not the women who are in the horrible situations that abortion advocates talk about when pushing their agenda forwards.  A lot of people are making a LOT of money in this horrendous industry.  Others have an agenda of global depopulation and reduction of particular races.  The women who actually GET abortions are the pawns in this sick deception–the advocates pretend they are fighting for them, but that’s just a façade.  (That’s not to say they are innocent . . . I’m simply saying most of the women GETTING abortions are not the ones ADVOCATING for abortion.)  The advocates are usually the ones who have a monetary interest in the continuation of the industry.

Look at the carnage again, and ask yourself whether we should be giving ANY weight to the opinions of people who are capable of inflicting such damage on innocent humans beings, without remorse.  And look at the pro-choice women in your life who have been deluded by their propaganda–remember that Eve was deceived, but Adam wasn’t.  Realize that people who are deluded FULLY BELIEVE that what they are saying is true.  Use your God-given rational mind and DON’T allow them to pull you into deception or sin by tugging on your heartstrings or otherwise manipulating you.  Look at those pictures again, and tell me you don’t KNOW that abortion is just plain wicked.

You KNOW . . . but they are deluded.  You MUST intervene.  Sit down with the women in your family and talk with them.  Tell them abortion is just plain wrong and that they’d better never consider it.  Make them look at the pictures, so that they can’t deny the reality of what happens in an abortion.  Tell them that if they ever find themselves in a bad situation, to come and talk with you, and somehow—together—you will work it out.  If they tearfully confess that they’ve HAD an abortion, lead them in a prayer of repentance.  Help them understand that God forgives what we’ve repented of, but they must never do it again.  They must help to educate others.

Teach your sons and brothers too.  Don’t let them sweep this under the rug.  Help them understand that when they sleep around, they may be making babies that the woman may abort without ever telling them.  Encourage them to reject any woman that is pro-abortion.  Show them the pictures again, and ask what kind of a woman can do such a thing without remorse?  Who wants to get involved with a woman like that?  And make sure they understand that if they pressure a woman to have an abortion, they have innocent blood on their hands.  Make sure they understand too, that if they find themselves in a bad situation, abortion is not the answer.  Somehow, together, you can find a better solution.

Please men . . . stand in the gap.  Be the kind of moral, upright man that your Father in Heaven can be proud of.  Do what Jesus would do.

It boggles my mind that, even when shown clear Biblical evidence to the contrary, some people who profess to be Christians will continue to believe in lies.  If that describes you, you are in a very dangerous place!

‘For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.’  (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

The part about having ‘itching ears’ . . . only listening to what appeals to us . . .  isn’t just talking about somebody else.  I would venture to say it’s talking about 98% of us these days!  Unless you STRIVE to compare what you hear to God’s Word, you will find yourself doing the same thing.  For some reason, in our day and time, it’s the natural thing to do.

How do YOU decide what you will believe?  Do you have an objective standard that you compare things against, or do you just believe whatever ‘feels right’?  In this life, you can believe whatever you want . . . whatever feels right . . . or sounds nice . . . or appeals most to you . . . if you want to, but if you don’t love TRUTH and seek after TRUTH you are on very dangerous ground.

The Lord HIMSELF is sending strong delusion, to people who do not love the truth (2 Thess. 2).  If YOU reject the truth when it is shown to you, then it could very well be said that YOU do not love the truth.  If you don’t love the truth, you will be overcome by the strong delusion and you WILL believe The Lie and follow the False Prophet and ‘The Antichrist’.  If you don’t have a love for the truth–PRAY FOR IT, because your eternal soul is at stake!

The correct response, when someone is showing you something from the Bible, is to PRAY that the Lord would give you discernment (because you don’t want to reject the truth OR believe a deception, right?).

Then, you PRAYERFULLY go to the Bible and start searching the Scriptures to see if what they told you is true.  At the very LEAST, read the verses they showed you, IN CONTEXT to make sure that they are using the verses as God really said them.  Reading a verse in context usually means reading the whole chapter they are a part of–sometimes more.

Most false doctrines are based on verses taken out of context (often a LOT of verses taken out of context), and ‘personal revelation’ of vague and difficult Bible passages.

If a person promoting a teaching says things like ‘the Lord revealed to me’ or ‘God told me’, or ‘I had a dream’, that doesn’t prove it was really a revelation from God.  There are plenty of deceiving spirits going around masquerading as ‘the Lord’ and whispering unBiblical things in peoples’ ears.  Be VERY careful of people who try to elevate their credibility by claiming divine revelation.

‘Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;’  (1 Timothy 4:1)

The Bible tells us that

‘ . . .  In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.’  (2 Cor. 13:1)

God follows this pattern in His Word–things are repeated two or three times in Scripture.

The Bible also tells us

‘Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.’  (2 Peter 1:20)

So pay attention, and when someone tries to claim divine authority via personal revelation for what they are telling you  ( ‘the Lord revealed to me’ or ‘God told me’, or ‘I had a dream’, etc.)  be VERY cautious about believing what they say, and PRAY that God will protect you from believing any lies they may be telling.  Also, be careful of believing doctrines that are based on obscure verses, or verses that stand alone (the same idea isn’t repeated elsewhere in Scripture).

There’s no way around it.  WORK is involved in getting to the truth.  You can’t just be lazy and believe whatever sounds good when it passes through your ears.  You must PRAY for discernment AND open your Bible and read, to be sure that what you are told is TRUE!!

Too many pastors these days are preaching lies (deliberately, or because they themselves are deceived).  The Bible repeatedly warns us to ‘let no man deceive you’ . . . and God has provided each of us with plenty of access to a Bible!!

If the truth isn’t important to you, you WILL believe The Lie and be damned.  The Bible promises it (2 Thess. 2:11-12).  And those of us who believe lies, without opening and reading our Bible to see what’s true, will have no excuse when we stand before God, damned for believing THE Lie.

Add this to the list of reasons I hate the ‘easy grace’ and ‘preTrib Rapture doctrines’: because of them, people become offended at the truth.

‘For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have [sufficient] to finish [it]? Lest haply, after he hath laid the foundation, and is not able to finish [it], all that behold [it] begin to mock him, Saying, This man began to build, and was not able to finish. . . So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. ‘ (Luke 14:28-30, 33)

This false gospel does not tell people what’s really required to be a Christian. It doesn’t prepare them for persecution . . . or to die for their faith. It’s not just a matter of being mocked if you turn away from the Lord . . .

‘For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known [it], to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. ‘ (2 Peter 2:20-21)

If they turn away from the truth, where will they go?

‘From that [time] many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.’ (John 6:66-69)

And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.’ (2 Timothy 4:4)

‘ . . . them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.’ (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)

This is why it is said:

‘But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.’ (Galatians 1:8-9)

Paul couldn’t have condemned it any more strongly. As the Jewish tradition was, he stated it twice to convey how adamant he was.  If you are preaching a false gospel, or false doctrine–STOP!!

‘Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near [me] with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me. . . ‘  (Isaiah 29:13)

Why have the churches become so much like the world?  My firm opinion is that they are populated with many people who have not been born again.  Repentance is necessary to conversion, but it is no longer preached.  Instead, people are told that all you have to do is believe in Jesus to be saved.  Well . . . that puts them in the same camp with the devil.

‘Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.’  (James 2:19)

Jesus tell us that there will be many people that believe they are Christians, that He will turn away.

‘Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.’  (Matthew 7:22-23)

Either these people were wolves in sheep’s clothing and are trying to con Jesus on judgment day . . . or they are people who believed in Jesus, whose faith in Him produced works, but who are rejected for some other reason.  The last words of the verse give a clue: ‘ye that work iniquity’.

I believe these are the same people spoken of in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10-12

‘And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.’

The devil will use the ‘deceivableness of unrighteousness’ . . . to ensnare them.  Unrighteousness (sin) deceives people.  The people spoken about here, that will receive strong delusion from God and be damned, are people who practice sin.  The passage confirms this–‘they . . . who . . . had pleasure in unrighteousness’.

My belief, is that part of the strong delusion is that many people will believe they are saved, even while they continue to live in sin.  And that the truth they won’t receive or believe, is that they must repent to be saved, and then live in obedience to God to continue ‘abiding in Him’.

‘And he called [unto him] the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; . . . And they went out, and preached that men should repent.   And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed [them].’  (Mark 6:7, 12-13)

‘Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.’  (Revelation 14:12)

‘If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.’  (John 15:6)

Those who receive this truth: that being reconciled to God requires repentance and obedience, can be saved.  Those who won’t receive the truth . . . who are only looking for a way to avoid hell (fire insurance, if you will), will be ensnared in the trap.

‘Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.’  (Proverbs 26:27)

‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.’  (Galatians 6:7-8)

Those who want to ‘have their cake and eat it too’ . . . who want to escape the fires of hell, yet live like the devil . . . will be the ones pleading with God on judgment day.

‘Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.’  (Matthew 7:21)

‘What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?   For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.’  (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

Those who mock God’s grace by attempting to get eternal life without having a change of heart, by insincerely making a profession of faith with their mouth while denying it by their actions . . . they will get what they deserve.

‘Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?’  (2 Corinthians 13:5)

I was recently in a conversation with someone, about Sid Roth  (Host of a TV show called ‘It’s Supernatural’).  After having given more thought and prayer to the question of Sid Roth . . . here is my position:

2 Timothy 4:1-4 tells us:

“I charge [thee] therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

Preach the word;
be instant in season, out of season;
reprove,
rebuke,
exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

I can only speculate as to why a man who is given a large audience, who claims to follow Jesus, who should know the word of God . . . why a man in such an advantageous position as his, to do great work for the LORD . . . would not obey Paul’s charge.

The Bible tells us that

“The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven . . . [and Jesus told them] A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. . . ” (Matthew 16:1-4)

The Western World today also, meets the definition of ‘a wicked and adulterous generation’.

As far as signs and wonders in our day, this is what the Bible warns:

“[Even him–the Antichrist], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,” (2 Thessalonians 2:9)

Jesus himself warned:

“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.” (Matthew 24:24)

“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if [it were] possible, even the elect.” (Mark 13:22)

The signs that WILL happen during the end times, are said to be for the purpose of deceiving the elect (Christians)!!

Now, with all that in mind, and the fact that these things ARE ALREADY HAPPENING–is it too much to expect that a true Christian, whom God has blessed with a means of reaching many people . . . that God would use such a person to EXPOSE the deception?

The fact that Sid Roth does NOT reprove or rebuke these false miracle workers, and (from what I saw) does not ask probing questions or hold their actions and beliefs up to the light of God’s Word, leads me to believe that this man is a participant in the false signs and wonders that Jesus warned us about.

I can only guess at his heart–whether he is doing this knowingly, or in ignorance. However, the fact that he makes his living in this manner leads me to think that if he IS ignorant, it is willingly so.

It is said that Sid Roth has a powerful anointing himself. Not every anointing is from God. But it is possible that his is.

Back to 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

“[Even him–the Antichrist], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause GOD SHALL SEND THEM strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

It is quite possible that God is using Sid Roth to help spread the Strong Delusion. MAKE NO MISTAKE, this delusion will have an EXTREMELY powerful anointing . . . from God!! Only those who love the truth will be saved from it.

And where is truth? Is it in an experience? In spiritual manifestations? In powerful anointings? (As we have seen, there can purposely be a powerful anointing of God . . . ON DELUSION!)

Truth, my friends, is found in the Word of God–the Bible. Anything that does not conform to the doctrines that the Apostles outlined for the Church is not in alignment with the truth! There are NO present day Apostles. There is no NEW revelation of truth from God!! There are no signs and wonders to win the lost. Everything that we need is right there in the King James Bible.

As tempting as the fruit of the forbidden tree was to Adam and Eve–they had only ONE commandment to follow. ONE boundary. Yet they chose instead to follow temptation and transgress that one boundary.

We, today, have ONE SOURCE for truth–the Bible. Will we accept the boundary of ONE that God has given to us, or will we yield to temptation and disobey Him?

The stakes are as high for us, as they were for Adam and Eve. Those who transgress this boundary, who do not love the ONE source of truth that God has provided for us, who look for truth and understanding elsewhere . . . will end up believing the Great Delusion and being eternally damned!

I am going to embed a video at the bottom of this post.  I DO NOT want you to take the teachings to heart.  I am using it to demonstrate how ‘The Great Delusion’ is beginning to unfold.  I want you to learn to discern this lie, because it is becoming very widespread.

Many Christians are already getting sucked in, and when the ‘reality of aliens’ is announced to the world, with all their advanced technology, many more Christians will be deceived.

The lie that is being told is that they are our ancestors and they come from another planet.  The lie is very complex and involves a convincing story of how humans were created through DNA manipulation.  But I want you to remember three things:

  1. God  created the heavens, the Earth, and mankind.  He is a just and Holy God.  There is none besides Him–meaning He is NOT one of many.
  2.  Jesus Christ came in the flesh and is the Savior of mankind, who paid the penalty for our sins.  There is not other way for mankind to obtain eternal salvation.
  3. These aliens are interDIMENSIONAL beings.  The Bible calls them demons / fallen angels, and they are involved in a war against God.  They promise mankind immortality, but I warn you of this:  anyone who becomes immortal, without having been forgiven first of their sins, becomes an immortal FALLEN being.  Immortal fallen beings cannot die, thus their destruction, after judgment, will be in the Lake of Fire–eternal hell.

These were the comments I posted after watching the video (which will no doubt be removed by 9Nania, who posted the video.)

Does the Bible not say that GOD created the heavens and the Earth? (Gen. 1:1, John 1:1-3)

Does the Bible not say that GOD created man? (Gen. 1:26-27, 2:7)

The above video, by 9Nania, has a lot of interesting points to consider. But, woven throughout the entire message is the false teaching that someone OTHER than God created man. (Are we now taking the word of the ancient Mayans over the Word of God?)

And, oh yes, lets throw in the lie that the Scripture’s account of the birth of Jesus was only the Hebrew version of a more widespread story . . . a story that was meant as a riddle, that would lay out the timeline for us . . .

The timeline for what? For what the Pope doesn’t want you to know (implying that those who know God are keeping a secret from you), but that the elite are surreptitiously revealing to ‘those who have eyes to see’ . . .

The timeline for the ‘return of our ancestors’ . . .

Make no mistake–the video you have posted, for the interesting points it offers for consideration, is doing far more harm than good–because it is spreading the ‘Great Delusion’ that will deceive even the elect, if possible!!

That Delusion denies God as Creator, and denies Jesus Christ–a flesh and blood person whose Father is God!!

Here is one more hint–and it goes back to the assertion that the accounts of Jesus life are merely a tale, a riddle (which is to say, that He did not come in the flesh) . . .

The Scriptures say

“This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. THIS IS THE SPIRIT OF THE ANTICHRIST, WHICH YOU HAVE HEARD IS COMING AND EVEN NOW IS ALREADY IN THE WORLD.’ (1 John 4:2-3)

IF you are a Christian, and you watched the video and didn’t catch this–let it be a lesson to you that the enemy is very crafty and that you are one of the ‘elect’ who it IS possible to deceive!

Also, understand this . . . the delusion is sent BY GOD, to condemn those who do not love the truth. So, if you are a Christian, who was fooled, but now you see the truth–thank God for this opportunity to get right with Him! It may be your only chance before the Great Delusion comes out in full force and deceives all those who are perishing because they refuse to love the truth.

Lets repeat this again: 9Nania denies that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh! Therefore, the teachings of 9Nania are doctrines of demons. This is just one of many false teachers out there today!!

Read your Bible!!

We are seeing a great move towards ecumenism–the joining (and blending) of all religions.  Many Christians may see the move towards unity, and away from denominational differences, as a good thing.  However, there is a problem.

God created ONE truth and in that truth there are no divisions.  Over the last few hundred years, when a group of people went astray on a point, a denomination would form.

The problem with the current movement towards unity is that there is a strand of error, or deception, running through each denomination.  Denominations are not backing up to a place of unity (100% truth).  Instead, each denomination has continued to proceed farther away from truth.  They have now wandered far enough away, that they can be comfortable opening wide their arms to embrace the deceptions that are a part of other denominations and false religions.

One might adopt the attitude of many others and say ‘millions of people can’t be wrong’ . . . but they would be incorrect.  Consensus does not equal truth.

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.

But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”  (Matthew 7: 13 -14)

The ‘Father of Lies’ has created a multitude of false religions over the centuries, tailored to the places, times, and cultures of the world.  He has been quietly weaving his web, linking those religions together little by little.  The closer each of those religions gets to HIS core beliefs, the closer they are drawn to one another.

Have you ever thought about that?  Satan has beliefs.  He has rejected truth.  He has opinions and beliefs that he has invented.  They are woven together with the lies he tells himself.  Any truth he sees is distorted through his false perceptions.  He may see things that are going on, but his beliefs about these things and their meanings are twisted by his stubborn opposition to God and His truth.

Just like the rest of us, Satan freely shares his beliefs.  He is always proselytizing and evangelizing for his version of reality.  He is constantly pouring out propaganda in his war against God.  Because he is the prince of this world, he has wide influence and vast resources at his disposal.

I’m not saying this to elevate him, because he is certainly not more powerful than God.  But he IS more powerful than men, and billions are unaware of his influence in their lives.  It is important, that you not underestimate how wide his influence is, or how desperate his mission–because his time is short.  It is advantageous to him to shift the focus away from the battle of evil vs. good, and strive to make things relative instead.

Now, much good can come of unity when those involved are actually grounded in truth and submitted to God–but there is no unity between truth and lies.  Truth doesn’t cause division–sin and rebellion do.  But truth exposes the lies and stirs up the wrath of deceivers.  Jesus told His followers that He came to bring division, not peace.

“Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.”   (Luke 12: 50)

“Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”  (Matthew 10: 34)

Jesus is The Word (God’s truth) made flesh.  The truth will always bring division between the righteous and the unrighteous.  There will be no peace, until truth alone prevails.  In God’s kingdom, truth always trumps unity.

Truth is important enough to God that He Himself has come to bring it to us–first in the flesh (Jesus), and then in the spirit (the Holy Spirit).

“When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me.”   (John 15: 26)

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”  (John 16: 13)

Christianity is meant to be synonymous with ‘truth’  (2 Peter 2: 2).

The Bible outlines the road that truth will take, before Jesus’ return:

  • The world will not accept truth, but truth will be found inside of believers  (” . . . the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.”  John 14: 17)
  • Among Christians, leaders will arise that lead believers away from truth  (“Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.”  Acts 20: 30 and 1 Timothy 6: 3-5)
  • Many believers will not like the truth, and will turn away from it.  This is what is referred to as ‘the great falling away’ or ‘the great apostasy’.  (“They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.”  2 Timothy 4: 4)
  • God will send a powerful delusion to those who refuse to love the truth.  (“For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”  2 Thessalonians 2: 12)
  • The Antichrist will come.  He will be in accord with Satan and counterfeit signs, wonders and miracles will be displayed.  (“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders . . . ”  2 Thessalonians 2: 9)
  • Those who refuse to love the truth will believe the lie, and they will be damned.  (“They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.”  2 Thessalonians 2: 10)

These are not things that are going to happen ‘some day’–they are already in progress!

 

A word of warning, to those who think they will escape judgment just by being sure they don’t take  The Mark . . .

If you don’t LOVE the truth, you WILL believe the lie–because God will send you the delusion Himself.  You may not even realize what The Mark is, when it comes along.  And you certainly won’t believe anyone who warns you . . . because you will not be  able  to believe the truth . . . no matter how often you are told!

 

Beware of those who would compromise truth–for unity, or anything else.  Truth is valuable, and truth concerning God’s kingdom is priceless!  It is something to be pursued, even if it costs you everything to obtain it (and not having it, in these last days, WILL cost you everything)!

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.

“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.”  (Matthew 13: 44-46)

 

What Is ‘The Great Deception’?

The Watchman’s Cry, program #39

 

I believe God showed me something about ‘The Great Deception’, and here is what I think He was showing me:

It’s too soon to say what IT is.

Right now, IT is like a web a spider is weaving. The crux of the deception is at the center, and Satan is the spider.

spider web

He has started by running long filaments out from the center.  They go in many different directions, like spokes of a wheel.  On the surface (at the outermost points where these spokes attach to branches, buildings, etc.) they seem to be unrelated, but they are connected at the core.

The spokes represent various deceptive ideas which mature into the core doctrines of various belief systems, or  ‘-isms’  (Mormonism, Communism, Environmentalism, Socialism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Islam-ism, etc.).  Again, on the surface, at their farthest points (the beliefs they were founded upon), they don’t seem to have much in common.

After putting all the ‘spokes’ in place, Satan has begun the slow and deliberate process of weaving them together. This tapestry of threads, that join spoke to spoke, represents the ‘-isms’ themselves, that form around the deceptive doctrines.

As the spider joins them together, working from the outside in, you will notice that the ‘spokes’ come closer and closer together, at the center, as the web is completed.  Eventually, as each of these ‘-isms’ matures, it will lead its followers to the same conclusion and belief.  Today, the religions and political belief systems of the world are drawing closer and closer to one another.

I am sorry to say that the denominations of Christianity each have a spoke of deception running through their midst as well.  This is why the different denominations are devolving into mindsets that are parallel to the beliefs of nonChristian religions and political belief systems.  Satan cleverly infiltrated the church long ago.

The completed web, in its totality, is what God refers to as the Great Delusion of the last days.  Right now, few of us are able to see exactly what it will look like when it is completed–but by understanding the core, we can have a pretty good idea.  Each of us knows in part, and speculates in part (or, if we are yielded to God and grounded in His Word, ‘we know in part and we prophecy in part’). As time goes on, it is coming into sharper focus–for those who have ‘eyes to see’.

All who do not know their God and love ONLY truth, will be ensnared in some part of the web. The thing that most people don’t realize, is that many are already caught in the web–and some have been caught in it for a very long time.

This isn’t something that will some day just appear in its full form and then people will start getting caught–it has been in the works for a long time, and people have been getting snared in it from the start!!

While Christians are disputing which -ism is going to be THE one, or which one we need to worry the most about, or which we should fight today, Satan continues his work.

What we need to understand is that we need to cast down EVERYTHING that exalts itself against the truth of God.

It is important that we have not become ensnared in the web ourselves.  Every belief we hold, that is not supported by the Word of God–that is not absolute truth–is a little sticky strand that holds us to the web of deception too!

God has shown each of us different pieces.  Different little groups of believers are scattered about near different parts of the web. Once we are sure that we have disentangled ourselves from the web, then we must each work to expose the deceptions that we are aware of, those that we understand, so that we can help pluck others out of Satan’s web of lies.  We can ‘shine a light’ on the part of the web nearest us, to help prevent others from getting caught unawares.

Nevertheless, we must always be careful that we don’t become ensnared again, either in some other part of the web, or by ‘new revelations’ that are being woven into it.

It is God’s will that the web exist–even if we put our concerted effort, all of us working in unison, to tearing the whole thing down, we couldn’t.

We each need to work where God has placed us–freeing those whom we can, giving respect to our brethren who are doing the same thing at other places on the web, and being careful that we don’t again find ourselves entangled in it.

 

Update 7/29/11:

Here is a link to an awesome video that confirms the commonality of all religions and who is being worshiped.  It will answer a lot of questions you didn’t even know you had.
