IF Not For the End Times, To What Does the Reader Attribute All of the Deception Taking Place Around Him?

end times...loading

The end times are a time of GREAT deception.

As has been noted in these pages many times before.

Deception is SO GREAT during the last days, that Jesus Christ first warned of “deception” when asked about the signs of the end times.

“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

HOWEVER, it is one mark of deception that the deceived do NOT recognize that they are deceived.

And so, the deceived live amongst GREAT deception, but comfort themselves that the deception they cannot but help notice is only a “normal way of doing things” OR (more accurately), “the way of the world.”

Another mark of the deceived is that they usually make EXCUSES or provide reasons WHY someone lies to them.

All politicians lie. It just the way they live.”

The government has always lied to people ever since I’ve been around.”

You can’t believe what you read.

“It might be true that where there’s smoke, there’s fire, BUT you can’t believe a word of what most people say!”

BECAUSE it is the end times, deception will be EVEN greater than ever before.

In fact, the deception will be so great even the deceived will notice it–and then IGNORE it.

The deceived ignore deception (and when they are lied to) because it helps them live a more comfortable life.

“All of that worrying about who is lying and who is telling the truth: it’s enough to drive you crazy!”

But EVEN THE DECEIVED will notice that deception has become normal during the times in which we now live.

A great many do NOT trust what their “leaders” tell them.

A great many KNOW that business lies to them about how wonderful their products are.

A great many expect to be lied to even by those they know PERSONALLY.

Even a great many of the deceived know they are surrounded by lies–and more lies–and lies they have not figured out yet.

At some point, one would think that EVEN THE DECEIVED would ask themselves,

“IF NOT FOR THE END TIMES, THEN WHY ARE ALL OF THESE DECEPTIONS TAKING PLACE?”
DOES the reader expect most people to tell them the truth?
HAS the reader become MORE or LESS disappointed by his expectations for hearing the truth?

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

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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
