Not Everything is a Physical Cause-and-Effect Relationship: 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 of the end times’ greatest deceptions is the popular teaching that so many aspects of life are simple cause-and-effect, physical relationships.

There are several reasons this is an important deception. Perhaps the most important reason: if man does not know the problem, he can not find a solution.

But there are others reasons as well, including

  1. Satan and his workers challenge God’s Word at every opportunity;
  2. IF so much of life is a simple physical matter, then behaviors and motivations are no longer very important;
  3. IF Satan’s workers control the problems, they are able to offer solutions which initially appear to work.
  4. By reducing so many aspects of life to physical problems, Satan’s workers can sell “solutions” for a price.  This is the entire marketing plan behind pharmaceuticals.
  5. It is much easier to disguise and explain away demonic power if the public does not believe in such power but DOES believe in physical problems and explanations.
  6. Wizardry, witchcraft and illegitimate supernatural power becomes less a choice of “right or wrong” and more a choice of “Does it work or not?” In fact, many practitioners of forbidden practices (including many church folk) attempt to justify such behaviors by exclaiming “But it works!

How has modern man become so deceived about such basic aspects of life?

How has modern man regressed from knowledge which his supposedly-primitive ancestors already possessed?

How does modern man continue to be deceived about such problems?

Like much else, the answer has to do with appealing to man’s vanity and pride.

Modern man dearly wants to believe that he is the best, most advanced human that has ever been.  It is a small matter for deceivers to tell modern man that he is the best and most advanced that has ever been.

When deception is labeled as “progress” or “advancement,” few men will want to be thought of as “primitive” or “unenlightened.”

The reader can know that so many aspects of his life which are claimed to be nothing more than physical reactions are not so. One way he can know this is the great number who do not react in the way in which they have been promised, particularly in regard to medicines, drugs and other treatments. In fact, there exists a huge mechanism for explaining away such failures.

Another way to know is the great number of conditions which do not respond as have been promised.  If these conditions were merely physical conditions, they would respond in a uniform way to physical treatments. Instead, such physical treatments are promoted as very helpful when the failure rate is higher than the success rate; i.e., rehab.

[NOTE: As per a recent discussion, the reader should know what is being said here.  There are a great many people who react to pharmaceuticals in a certain manner.  It is not being said that there will be NO reaction in most cases.  Only that the pharmaceutical does not function in the way it is being promoted: it works in a manner which is very much different than what is advertised/claimed.]

So much of life is NOT merely a series of chemical or physical reactions to other chemicals and/or substances.

In spite of whatever indoctrination to the contrary modern man is forced to endure.

DOES the reader believe that his ills and discomfort can be remedied by chemicals, substances or other physical materials?

DOES the reader believe or not believe what is declared in God’s Word (the Bible)?

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
