“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
Just when one thinks the deception in the world couldn’t possibly get any worse, it does. Each and every day brings evidence that the world that’s pulled over one’s eyes is only getting worse.
This suffocating deception is the one sign of the end times about which Jesus warned three times.
It is also the one sign both believers and the mystery of iniquity know to be true.
The masses of the lost seem oblivious, but even they are becoming more aware of the totality of the lies. As they become engulfed by deception, even the blind multitudes know something is not right.
Even if they do not know exactly what.

Yes, the world is engulfed in a thick haze of deception.
The deception is so bad, the world is not as most imagine it to be.
Neither is reality.

Though all deception is bad, the very worst deception is SELF-deception. This is because the person involved buys into and accepts the deception without resistance or struggle.
Most in the world today–and particularly in America (Ground Zero of Deception)–are self-deceived.

And the worst of the self-deceived are those who believe they have the truth because they have access to “secret knowledge“–which is no truth at all.
It does not matter that almost everyone has enough wherewithal to determine they are deceived and lied to.
What matters is that identifying deception is not high on most people’s list of priorities.
Oh, many will CLAIM they do not want to be deceived. And many will CLAIM to be interested in the “truth.”
But these are words only.
Only the very few will ACTUALLY desire the truth. The rest?
The same-old, same-old lies and trickery will do just fine.
Now, we can know that because the deception that is taking place is not particularly clever or well-thought-out.
Many can see through the deception and lies–they KNOW they are being lied to–but they do not care to do anything about these deceptions.
Though fast disappearing, the truth is still available to anyone who has the time and inclination and a love of the truth.
And here is a little secret: ALL who want to know the truth–who REALLY care about having the truth–will have it.
BUT, most DO NOT care enough to make it a priority in their lives.
IF they did, they would have to change their routine in order to do something about it. And most LIKE the way things are.
The worst deception?
And it is everywhere one looks.
DOES the reader have a love for the truth?

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

“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.”
