The end times are a very special time period in the history of man.
According to God’s Word, there will be apparent miracles happening in the end times.
BUT, these ‘lying wonders’ will be from the power of Satan, NOT God.
“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
So, the reader will SEE great wondrous actions which APPEAR to be miracles.
These actions will NOT be miraculous, but will be deceptions. Because almost ALL men are DECEIVED, man will believe they ARE miracles.
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
HOWEVER, the GREAT MAJORITY of mankind will be taken in by these fraudulent ‘lying wonders’–just as the GREAT MAJORITY of mankind is TODAY taken in by a smile and a kind word.
This is a VERY important reason to follow CLOSELY after God’s Word: those who follow closely can know the difference between miracles and frauds.
HOWEVER, the GREAT MAJORITY of mankind has been taught to NOT believe God’s Word.
This is one BIG reasons the GREAT MAJORITY of mankind will suffer eternally, instead of prosper.
It will be very hard to hide the deceptions which mark the dragon’s man of sin.
In fact, these deceptions will NOT be hidden, but will be PROMOTED as SIGNS of GOD.
The signs of the end times SURROUND end times man on all sides BUT end times man–because he is deceived–will NOT see those unmistakable signs as the WARNINGS they were meant to be.
That is TRULY tragic.
So, even though the SIGNS of the END TIMES surround man, man will not see those signs as WARNING SIGNS, but will INSTEAD listen to what the dragon (Satan) is claiming.
BUT, COMPLETELY preventable.
WHEN something unexpected happens, does the reader turn to the media–which the reader KNOWS lies to him–for the answers?
It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

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.”
A Reminder: The Gospel is Simple
