The Lost are Blind and Cannot Understand the Bible

BLINDFOLD-pd

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
1 Corinthians 2:14

SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS

The lost cannot understand God’s Word: it is foolishness to them.

On the other hand, those who are truly saved have the Holy Spirit to guide them into ALL truth. All they have to do is listen.

“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth”
John 16:13

The unsaved do not have the Holy Spirit dwelling within. This is why the unsaved have no spiritual discernment.

From time to time, unsaved (“the natural man“) men expound on the Bible. Much of what they say is foolishness. The world calls this “doctrinal disagreements” or “different interpretations”.”

But the Bible says there are NO different interpretations.

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.”
–2 Peter 1:20

Natural men CANNOT understand the Bible: it is as if they were blind.

“The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.”
Proverbs 4:19

This is one sure way to tell the counterfeits: they have no understanding of the basics of God’s Word.

On occasion (for whatever reason), one of the lost will mention reading the Bible. NOW, this is never a bad idea, but it’s necessary to point out that they will never understand the Bible until they convert.

Though the world labors 24/7 to convince men that God’s Word is just a collection of pieces written by mere men, the Bible is unlike any other book: it is a unified whole without contradictions.

Whenever two verses appear to contradict each other, the believer will reconcile them; the natural man will say “Hey! These Bible verses contradict!”

One of the games unsaved natural men play is “dueling Scripture.”

One will focus on one verse (say, Ephesians 2:8)

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God”).

Another will focus on another (James 2:20)

“But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”

And then the two will argue which one is correct.

AS IF the two verses contradicted one another.

Those who toil attempting to show contradictions in the Bible reveal themselves for what they are: natural men, without the Holy Spirit (which will guide the believer into all truth), unsaved and lost, bound for destruction.

This is both sad and unnecessary.

Sad, because such men are bereft of the glorious hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Unnecessary because Jesus suffered shame and physical death so such men might be saved.

“And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the LORD: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung.”
Zephaniah 1:17

True repentance brings sight to the blind.

“The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous”
Psalm 146:8

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL

“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 I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

End Times Churches: Centers of Deception

The Apostate End Times Churches

“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

WORSHIPING SATAN

TELLING AND BELIEVING LIES

IF one believes the Bible, then one has to believe what the Bible declares about the end times churches.

Throughout the entire earth, the end times churches are the centers for dragon (Satan) worship.

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
Revelation 13:7-8

Yet most men cling to their churches instead of Jesus Christ.

A FEW QUESTIONS

As we approach the climax of human history, a few questions beg to be answered by those claiming to believe the Bible who inhabit the churches.

1- Where do “all that dwell upon the earth” go to worship the dragon? Do they worship the devil in the streets? Where do all of these Satan-worshiping churches come from? Will the devil begin a massive church-building program over the next few years?

2- WHO is running these Satan-worshiping churches? Does the devil suddenly replace thousands of ministers, preachers and church officials? Where do these people come from?

3- WHY do all the people of the earth worship Satan? Doesn’t that seem like a huge change from today? Won’t the church-goers notice something different going on in their churches?

A FEW ANSWERS

1 – Where do all of these Satan-worshiping churches come from?

The centers of end times dragon worship are already in place in every neighborhood across America and in many neighborhoods across the world.

We call them the churches.

The churches of today were long ago compromised: centuries ago, in fact.

The dragon doesn’t have to build any new churches: the ones he has right now (in cities, towns and neighborhoods across the world) will work just fine.

Satan Has Counterfeited the Christian Church

2 – WHO is running these Satan-worshiping churches?

2000 years ago, the Bible began warning of deceitful workers infiltrating the churches.

“For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.”
Acts 20:29-30

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.”
Matthew 7:15

Practically every book in the New Testament warns of those who pretend to be Christians, but are really working for the enemy.

The Bible calls these men “false apostles, wolves in sheep’s clothing, deceitful workers, ‘[those] that would pervert the gospel of Christ,’ evil workers, dogs, unruly and vain talkers, deceivers, ravenous wolves, false prophets, false teachers, Satan’s ministers, liars, men of corrupt minds, evil men, seducers, deceived and deceiving, scoffers, mockers, antichrists, ungodly men.

These are the men the Bible warned would be in the churches.

And so they are.

Most are “nice people” with smiles on their faces.

3- WHY do all the people of the earth worship Satan? Won’t the church-goers notice something different going on in their churches?

Won’t the church-goers notice something different in their churches?  Basically, no they won’t.

The churches today feature prayer circles, witchcraft, praying at the cardinal points, occult ‘praise and worship’ songs, pagan rituals, occult imagery, counterfeit spirits, other gospels and idolatry.

Christianity and the Occult: The Occult goes to Church

Many Pentecostal and ‘holiness‘ churches seek a “move of the spirit” in their churches, not recognizing that the spirit which shows up is not the Holy Spirit.

COUNTERFEIT HOLY SPIRIT: Lying Spirits of Deception in the Churches

Most churches will notice nothing different when the man of sin arrives. What they are doing today will fit right in.

The End Times Church of the Tares

As centers of dragon worship (and because Satan is the father of lies), the churches can be expected to be centers of end times deception.

And so they are.

Because the whole world is deceived (this includes the deceitful workers within the churches), the whole world will worship Satan.

” that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world
Revelation 12:9

Some church-goers will worship the dragon believing they are worshiping Jesus and God Almighty because the churches LOOK like Christianity.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
Revelation 13:11

Besides, all of those who won’t heed the warnings of the last 2000 years will be sent a strong delusion by God.  ALL who are sent the delusion will be damned.

STRONG DELUSION: Strong Delusion is Coming

“I can’t find a good church!” is a common complaint today. Yet, instead of looking to the Bible for why this is, most continue swapping one church building for another, always hoping the results will somehow be different this time.

It appears most men are more concerned with what other men think of them than with their eternal salvation.

The New Testament (including Revelation) was written almost 2000 years ago. The warnings contained in it about the end times have been around for a long, long time.

And yet, after centuries of warnings, the whole earth STILL worships the dragon.

Count this as just one more warning which will go largely unheeded by those for which it was intended.

Still, the reader may be different from the vast majority of men.

The reader may take heed before it’s too late.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL

“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:

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 I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”

The Normalizing of Illegitimate Supernatural Power in the End Times

EVIL PREPARATIONS FOR THE END TIMES:

MAINSTREAMING THE DEMONIC

THE NORMALIZATON OF THE DEMONIC IN THE END TIMES

THE NORMALIZATON OF THE DEMONIC IN THE END TIMES

Demons, demonic power and illegitimate supernatural power will be an everyday part of the end times.

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.”
Revelation 16:13-14

“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

“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,”
Revelation 13:13

“Even him, 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.”
2 Thessalonians 2:9-10

“And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”
Revelation 18:23

In preparation for the end times, this demonic power is being normalized in hundreds of ways across the land many fancy is the “World’s Most Christian Nation Ever!™

That normalization of demonic power has been an on-going project for centuries, but in the times in which we live, that pace has quickened.

One of the narratives used to mask esoteric knowledge (which employs familiar spirits, demons and the like) is one that fans of the Star Wars movies will be familiar with: the Force.

The Force is demonic power.

Oh, it’s wearing a mask, but it’s nonetheless illegitimate supernatural power.

By a great coincidence, a new, extremely heavily-promoted Star Wars movie is coming out next month.

The Force Awakens.

All the earmarks of those who associate with familiar spirits (demons) are there:

  1. Both the Force and demonic power are said to have a “good side” and a “dark side” (like ‘white witches’ which are claimed to be good and ‘black witches’ who are claimed to be evil);
  2. Both have vague cover stories as to where this power originates (most witches will tell you their power comes from the earth).“It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together”
    –Obi Wan Kenobi, A New Hope
  3. Both exhibit very real power that is only vaguely explained.
  4. Both are attended to those attached to various false religions (including Science, Wicca and the rest).

Lest the reader believe that this is all just a poorly thought-out tangent: all across the earth are scattered the remains of long-ago pre-Flood civilizations. Many of these civilizations left megaliths composed of huge stone weighing (in some cases) several hundred tons. Easter Island, Stonehenge, the Pyramids and Baalbek are only a few of these structures.

Man still does not have the means (with so-called modern machinery) to move these stones. Yet our ancestors not only precisely cut these stones, they moved them from miles away and stacked them into place. In some cases, the stones fit so tightly together, a piece of paper cannot fit between them.

The false religion of Science has claimed it’s a mystery how these structures were built. Various cover stories (none which make much sense or which there is any evidence) are unsatisfying at best.

BUT there are many ancient accounts of how these megaliths were built. Almost ALL of the accounts insist they were built using occult (demonic) power:  a Force if you will.

Legends of occult power being employed to lift and transport stone blocks are in fact universal. For example, according to tradition the megalithic city of Nan Madol on the Micronesian island of Pohnpei was built by the god-kings Olosopa and Olosipa, who used magic spells to make the huge stones ‘fly through the air like birds’.3 Legends about the huge stone statues or moai on Easter Island, many of which are as high as a three-storey building, tell how magicians or priests used mana, or mind power, to make them ‘walk’, or float through the air.4

According to early Greek historians, the walls of the ancient city of Thebes were built by Amphion, a son of Jupiter, who moved the large stones ‘to the music of his harp’ while his ‘songs drew even stones and beasts after him’. Another version claims that when he played ‘loud and clear on his golden lyre, rock twice as large followed in his footsteps’. The 10th-century Arab historian Mas’di wrote that, to build the pyramids, the ancient Egyptians inserted papyri inscribed with certain characters beneath the stone blocks; they were then struck by an instrument, producing a sound which caused them to rise into the air and travel for a distance of over 86 metres.5
Gravity and anti-gravity: Levitation: Megaliths

Lest the reader believe that this is pure conjecture and speculation, we present the case of the Coral Castle.

Built in Florida in the 1920s by a single, 110-pound man, the Coral Castle is composed of over 1100 TONS of rock.  All quarried, transported and fitted together by this one man.

According to Joe Bullard in his excellent book, Waiting for Agnes, a psychic had told Ed’s mother that Ed was “a returning spirit from Atlantis … he will astound the world, bringing back the ancient, lost science once used in building the Great Pyramid. The past is revealed to him in dreams and visions.”2 Bullard believes that Ed took this seer’s advice to heart, and did indeed believe that he was a reincarnated spirit from ancient Atlantis. In his dreams and visions, he came to believe that he had once lived in Atlantis,
[…]
Leedskalnin devised a means to single-handedly lift and maneuver blocks of coral weighing up to 30 tons each.
[…]
Within his castle walls, built of coral blocks weighing approximately 15 tons each, he had a 22-ton obelisk, a 22-ton moon block, a 23-ton Jupiter block, a Saturn block, a 9-ton gate, a rocking chair that weighed 3-tons, and numerous puzzles. A huge 30-ton block, which he considered to be his major achievement, he crowned with a gable shaped rock.

God destroyed the pre-flood civilizations because they were completely evil (except for Noah and his family).

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.”
Genesis 6:5-7

Jesus said the world immediately before His returns would resemble the world of the wicked pre-flood civilizations.

“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
Matthew 24:37

Demonic power has existed for centuries. It is illegitimate supernatural power. Though the wicked manufacture cover stories as to where this power comes from, the Bible says it comes from demons. In some cases, the evil spirits are attached to a particular person (a familiar spirit). Some of the power comes from Satan (the dragon) himself.

“And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”
Revelation 13:2

God has repeatedly warned man against accessing illegitimate supernatural power. But most men do not listen very well.

But use of familiar spirits and the demonic have usually stayed hidden in the shadows.

In the end times, such power comes out of the darkness.

It is an every day occurrence.

And the world loves it.

Have you traded your eternal salvation for supernatural parlor tricks, trinkets and other temporary advantages which are fleeting?

Nothing corrupts like power and nothing deceives like supernatural power. Its deception begins with the familiar spirit (demon) and includes those making use of such illegitimate power.

Tragically, the ones who employ such power not only deceive others, they are desperately deceived themselves.

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
