Deception is a Spiritual Problem: Great End Times Deceptions

Great end times deceptions

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you”
–Mark 13:3-5



One important topic about which modern man is very much deceived is deception itself.

This circumstance is due to several factors.

  1. Satan is a master liar and deceiver.
  2. Modern man desires deception and lies over the truth.
  3. Modern man has reached a point in his development where he is literally surrounded by lies and deception. Because so many trust man and the words of man over the Word of God, deceptions are presented as a good path. Countless moderns believe it is important to make a choice in their lives; however, they end up making a choice between two deceptions.

One deception which is indoctrinated into modern man is the value of “talking things out.

When the talk is about bad choices and misinformation, NOTHING will ever get better from talk.

HOWEVER, talking does give the wicked something to do.

Most feel it is useful and talking passes the time.

The reader can KNOW how useless “talking it out” is: How many have heard friends and relatives declare that “If only I could talk some sense into him/her, s/he would straighten up”?

How often does that “talking sense” work out for the better?

This leads to what is one of the end times greats deceptions: that deception is an information or a communication problem, NOT a spiritual one.

So many moderns sincerely believe that IF they only could impart the right information; if they only could stumble across the right way to say something, they could change their situation or the circumstances of a misguided love one.

Deception is NOT an information problem.

Deception is NOT a problem of logic or data.

Deception is NOT a communication problem.

Deception IS a spiritual problem.

Because so many treat deception (“S/he is so bad for him/her! Why can’t s/he see that?“) as something other than what it is, they fail to bring about positive changes in whatever it is they are addressing,

Whether it concerns them or someone close to them.

The answer to spiritual deception is something which many moderns have been indoctrinated against: the Word of God.  Attacking deception as something other than a spiritual problem guarantees failure.

So many who claim to be battling deception use the warning “Wake up!  It’s time to wake up before it’s too late!”

This is a futile warning.

One can only “wake up” from deception through very specific spiritual means.

This is one reason warnings against deception so often appear as if they are ignored.

Since deception ultimately leads to destruction, the deceived are engaging in episodes of self-destruction.  IF they could “wake up,” utilizing their own power, they would have done it.

No doubt many readers have experience with trying to solve a problem of deception with talking and/or facts and figures.

Deception is a spiritual problem.

Until one treats deception in such a manner, failure will be a constant companion.

“Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.”
–Ephesians 5:6

DOES the reader know someone who is the victim of deception?

HAS the reader attempted to “wake this person up” using the methods of this world (logic, facts, figures, evidence, proof, sound arguments)?

HAS the reader ever wondered why someone who would leave a bad companion will return again and again?

HAS the reader ever wondered why his efforts to intervene have largely been long-term failures?

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.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“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
