A great deal has been written about how deceptive the end times are.
A great deal has been written about the warnings of Jesus to beware of deception in the end times. A few of those warnings are given below.
“And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you”
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.”
With all of this attention paid to deception in the end times, it would seem end times man would be well aware of the pitfalls to avoid.
But that would be wrong: end times man is terribly deceived and getting worse.
When presented with the truth, a great many Americans will resist it–and argue for the lies they’ve been told, in spite of almost overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
Americans will make the lies they choose to believe “their own.” Some will even go so far as to do additional reading in order to find support for the lies they’ve chosen to embrace.
The lies they have made their own–this is a definition for “self-deception”–are especially stubborn things.
And getting worse.
One additional sorry situation: Americans know they are lied to by any number of their institutions: government, education, the media, science, medicine, etc. Yet they turn to these same organizations–who are KNOWN to lie–for answers.
And Americans wonder why they cannot get the answers to their many, seemingly-insolvable problems.
Again, it is sad.
And getting worse.
However, the most tragic situation is that so many willingly choose lies–in some cases, lies of which they are aware–over the truth.
“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.”
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.”
