“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”
—2 Corinthians 11:13-15
The end times are a time full of deception and deception surrounds us on every side, thus being one confirmation of the times in which we live.
One place where deception lies thickest is among the multitude of people who know not much, maybe a little bit about the Bible.
Another place which suffocates under end times deception is the churches.
Finally, deception especially surrounds the poor workers of iniquity.
But the multitudes of people who don’t know the Bible don’t care to know the Bible. Otherwise, they would study it.
And the workers of iniquity?
They are the most deceived of all: in the business of deceiving other people, they perhaps wallow in more deception than their unwary targets.
“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
—2 Timothy 3:13
THE PERFECT STORM OF DECEPTION
The perfect storm of deception: where the multitudes of deceived people, the counterfeit churches (which await the man of sin) and the deceived and deceiving workers of iniquity all intersect is in the person of the “man of God” who is exalted by the world.
Such as Billy Graham.
What Jesus said:
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
What Billy Graham said:
From Billy Graham.org:
Followers of Jesus Christ claim a belief that—today and for the past 2,000 years—has raised eyebrows and caused others to ask, “really?”
The belief that Jesus Christ is the only way to obtain salvation, the one way to find God, the single way to receive eternal life can confuse or concern people. It can seem limited or judgmental, and it leaves out the countless other beliefs that billions around the world ascribe to.
Who is one to believe: Jesus or Billy Graham?
HERE’S A CLUE: ANY man exalted by the world as a “man of God” is NOT.
“If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.”
“The world would love its own.”
The world will not exalt a true man of God: the world HATES the true man of God. The world only loves its own: the world will only promote the counterfeit and fake man of God.
Billy Graham is not a man of God: he is deceived and deceiving. By his own words (more than once), he has declared Jesus is not the only way to heaven.
That is the declaration of a non-Christian.
But Billy Graham is far from the only deceiver who is himself deceived: he is merely one of the best known.
There are hundreds, thousands, of such folk. Many man the airwaves of “Christian TV;” some work the pulpits of local churches; while others roam the land as “evangelists” (spreading other gospels).
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
IF THE WORLD EXALTS SOMEONE AS A MAN OF GOD: HE IS NOT.
The Bible warns of false apostles, deceitful workers, evil men, wolves in sheep’s clothing, seducers, ministers of Satan: all pretending to be something they are not.
The Bible also warns of the deception which is prevalent in the end times.
Together, they make the perfect storm of deception.
Only the Holy Spirit can guide someone through such spiritual darkness to the truth.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.”
“And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.”
Do you have the Holy Spirit?
He is essential for the times in which we live.
Do not be deceived by the fake man of God; by the evil men and seducers; by the false apostles and deceitful workers.
Time is growing short.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
