“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
When asked what would be a sign of His “coming and of the end of the world,” the first response Jesus made to His disciples was to warn them of the deception.
And so, the times in which we now live are the very definition of deception.
1 the act of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid
2 something that deceives :trick
One of the favorite tricks of the deceiver is to lie.
And Satan (the end times dragon and the head of the end times worldwide rebellion against God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ) is the father of lies.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
The WHOLE end times world is deceived.
“And the great dragon…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
End times man is deceived because end times man values COMFORT over the TRUTH.
End times man KNOWS that the government, the churches, science, the Corporate Media and the education system lie to him: there are so many lies, it’s hard to avoid stumbling over the truth occasionally. Even those who assist in the various deceptions know they are lied to.
BUT even though end times man KNOWS he is lied to by other men and by the world’s authorities, he prefers these obvious lies to the TRUTH of God’s Word (the Bible).
The dragon has done his job well.
Still, there are those FEW who value the truth–which protects them from the great end times deceptions–even in a time period loaded with lies and deception. Those who DO NOT value the truth will be sent a strong delusion to ensure they will believe a lie.
“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 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. 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.”
WILL the reader be saved or damned?
DOES the reader have a love for the truth?
OR does the reader settle for the same old lies?
HOW does the reader know?
THOUGH time grows short, there is still time left to change direction (repent) and call upon the name of the LORD.
Do not wait until it is too late.
“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.”
