Deceivers Are Not That Clever

CLEVER

There are a group of folks who would (no doubt) self-describe themselves as “living by their wits.”

A great percentage of these folks are DECEIVERS, who prey upon those who may be preyed upon.

The deceivers believe that they are successful at taking things that do NOT belong to them from other folks because they are CLEVER or SMART.

BUT, the deceivers are NOT clever or smart–least ways, as clever or as smart as they believe themselves to be.

The deceivers are successful because they prey upon the DECEIVED.

The deceived see, but do not perceive.

The deceived hear, but do not understand.

“They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. “
–Isaiah 44:18

“That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.”
–Mark 4:12

The deceived represent a HUGE percentage of those who dwell upon the earth during the last days.

The deceived are easy pickings for the deceivers.

And THE DECEIVED include all of those folks who believe themselves to be clever or smart enough to take things that are NOT theirs, USING (what they believe to be) THEIR CLEVER subterfuges.

The deceivers are deceived themselves.

God’s Word warns that these folks will grow MORE, both in numbers and in schemes used to defraud their fellows.

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
–2TIMOTHY 3:13

DOES the reader see ANY evidence of men growing “worse and worse“?

DOES the reader see ANY evidence that the deceivers are themselves deceived?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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 TIMING of One’s Laughing Affects the Satisfaction Obtained By Such Laughter

laughing

Although God Word is silent about WHEN one should laugh, it does provide a few hints on what may be the most appropriate reaction to laughter.

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance”
–Ecclesiastes 3:1,4

One imagines that the end times unfold the way they do in order to encourage the wicked to celebrate prematurely.

“The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.”
–Psalm 2:2-4

EVEN THOUGH, events look like they are favoring Satan and his dragoons, the reader needs to wait until the end of all before making a decision about who is in charge.

In other words, God is declaring that age-old truism of the world:

HE WHO LAUGHS LAST, LAUGHS BEST.

[One suspects that the timing of God’s laughter is WHOLLY decided by Him and will conform to that saying.]

DOES the reader have any thoughts on when is the BEST time to laugh at someone?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.

OPM and One’s Focus During the End Times

OPM

OPM.

Other People’s Money: it’s what makes the world of the wicked go round.

At least, to hear the world tell it.

AND, it is one of the chief characteristics which separate the wicked from the righteous.

The love of the world, the love of money and the love of the things that money can buy motivates a GREAT MANY men to do things they ought not to do.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
–1JOHN 2:15

The author of the Book of James also wrote about the main reason the wicked  and the righteous do not see eye-to-eye.

“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
–James 4:4

In fact, the apostle Paul wrote about this circumstance nearly 2000 years ago.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”
–1TIMOTHY 6:10

Of course, those who chase after money and accumulate it would deny that money is nothing but a force for GOOD–and those folks will seldom tire of telling others the GOOD things that money can do–particularly, OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY.

Particularly, if one is in GOVERNMENT.

Maybe the reader has heard one of these (who are pieced through with many sorrows), rattle off all of the GREAT and GOOD things which money can do?

And, those who chase after the accumulation of wealth have a difficult time laying the blame for ANY of their many afflictions on their chosen behavior.

One additional failing which is not discussed much, is highlighted by the question, “How much is enough?

Perhaps the reader knows of someone who has piles of money BUT who still pursues MORE MONEY as if he was starving and needed more money to feed himself (and his family)?

How much is enough?

Which leads us to the observation that the wicked do NOT (generally) accumulate their OWN money: they gather and accumulate the money of others: other people’s money.

OPM.

It is what drives the UNbeliever to focus on the world and the things of the world.

And, by doing so, the wicked and foolish remain the way they are; at the mercy of the world; enslaved by the prince of this world.

REMEMBER: it is NOT money per se which is a problem.

It is the LOVE OF MONEY which causes nearly all the troubles.

DOES the reader share in the world’s view of OPM?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.

Regular Behaviors Which Are Habitual Are Habits–Whether it is Admitted to Be So Or Not

BAD HABIT

It has been said that “Man is a creature of habit.”

And so he is: man settling into MANY behaviors which are regular, usual and expected.

IN other words: habits.

habit

a settled tendency or usual manner of behavior

//her habit of taking a morning walk

Man has MANY behaviors which are classified as ‘habits’ and which are freely admitted to by their practitioners.

Most of the behaviors which are freely admitted as being ‘habits,’ are ‘bad habits’: behavior which HURTS the one who has the habit or is otherwise, self-destructive behavior.

SMOKING.

OVER-EATING.

DRINKING.

DRUGS.

The list is quite a long one.

[Wonder why bad habits are more easily identified as habits rather than other, less destructive behaviors?]

YET, there are other behaviors (many of them more benign than ‘bad habits’) which are not admitted to being habits–though they may be performed regularly as clockwork.

A great many American will admit to starting off their mornings with a cup of coffee.

AND, a great many of these Americans will admit to having that coffee every morning is a HABIT.

BUT, a great many OTHER Americans will NOT admit to having that coffee every morning to be a HABIT.

“It’s just something I like to do.”

A great many Americans turn in for the night and retire at the same time every evening.

“That’s just the time I’ve always went to sleep!”

For many, though the behavior is habitual, it is not considered to be a HABIT.

For decades, thousands stayed up to watch The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. It was suspected that many did this in order to have something interesting to say at work the next day.  At any rate, this regular watching of Johnny Carson before retiring for the evening was usually NOT considered a habit.

Perhaps because watching The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson was, at one time, considered a normal thing to do?

DOES the reader have any behaviors which are regular and usual?

DOES the reader consider these behaviors to be habits?

WHY or WHY NOT?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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 Schemes of Man

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
–Ephesians 5:11

From time to time, the ETPR reader will have seen references to “the schemes of man.”

YET, it was determined, after some careful study of past articles, that “the schemes of man” was a phrase which has been poorly explained.

ONLY ONE article (published almost two-and-a-half years ago) even mentioned (in passing) what the “schemes of man” were.

So, it was decided this week to examine the phrase a little more closely and try to emphasize just exactly what the “schemes of man” were all about.

IN SHORT, the “schemes of man” involve taking from the many and giving to the few.

“There is no salvation for civilization, or even the human race, other than the creation of a world government.”
Albert Einstein

The elite few have ALWAYS schemed against the many.

A FEW of those schemes–which TAKE from the many and GIVE to the elite FEW–are

  1. Those governments which supposedly are run by men “elected” by the many (as well as government-mandated products and services)
  2. Various monopolies – whether they be products (sugar, prescription or recreational drugs) or services (electric, power, water);  Whether they be known to the public (natural gas) or unknown (petroleum)
  3. Lotteries
  4. Things of the world which are claimed to have intrinsic value” (such as government-issued or manufactured, alternate currencies)
  5. Stock markets
  6. Various gambling schemes, including professional sports
  7. Popular entertainment

The list ONLY features a very few of the schemes of man which take from the many and give to the elite few.

HOWEVER, all of the schemes by the few during man’s entire existence PALE beside the plan of those who imagine themselves to be “at the top of the food chain” to control the entire world and ALL of the things in it.

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed [Jesus Christ], saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
–Psalm 2:2-3

[…]

This control of the world by the elite few (encouraged and assisted by Satan) is the ULTIMATE scheme of man:  it is the ULTIMATE taking from the many and giving to the elite few.
The MANY vs The Elite FEW

So, that is the extent of what has been published here at ETPR about a phrase which is fairly regularly referenced.

A “scheme of man” is the taking from the many and giving to the few.

The reader might list quite a few of these “schemes of man” because some of them have been around for so long and because it is plain to see how they work.

Various lotteries are “schemes of man.”

Which is why so many gambling enterprises like the lotto are run by GOVERNMENTS.  Government is one of the entities trusted (at least a little bit) by end times man to ‘play fairly.’

There are other “schemes of man” which come better disguised and therefore, are hard to discern.

Many of these additional schemes are run by business because end times man trusts business (at least a little bit) to ‘play fairly.’

For these schemes to be successful, the public (the many) must be convinced that the few are NOT raking in their cash.  The many must be convinced that it is the many who are benefiting.

This is NOT the case.

And so, it is suspected that the “schemes of man” will continue right up until Jesus Christ returns to earth.

CAN the reader think of any schemes of man?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: 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.

What Happens to Devils and Demons When the Last Days are Finished For These Servants of God?

demon/devil/evil or unclean spirit

Although God’s Word mentions the ultimate end of Satan (the dragon), Satan’s man of sin (false prophet) and the beast (of Satan), as well as almost everyone else, great and small, it does NOT declare what  happens to demons (devils).

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
–Revelation 19:20,20:10

Demons (devils) are a creation of God and make up a significant portion of God’s end times army.

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.”
–Revelation 9:1-3

These ‘locusts’ are NOT insects as locusts [which are insects] have NO king.

“The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands”
–Proverbs 30:27

YET, these ‘locusts’ of God’s great end times army DO have a king.

“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
–Revelation 9:11

These ‘locusts’ are also described in Joel’s second chapter.

“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: And the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”
–Joel 2:1-3,7-11

Their appearance is described in Joel.

“The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion. “
–Joel 2:4-6

Which very closely resembles the appearance as it is described in Revelation.

“And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.”
–Revelation 9:7-9

To any who may have doubts: God Himself declares that he created ALL things–including devils.

“I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”
–Isaiah 45:7

So, these demons (devils) serve the God who created them during the last days.

To that end, they make up a significant portion of the army of God which afflicts Jerusalem.

What is their ultimate destiny?

Are they rewarded for their service?

“For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.  Be ye ashamed, O ye husbandmen; howl, O ye vinedressers, for the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perished.”
–Joel 1:6,11

BUT, there is no mention of what happens to these devils ANYWHERE in God’s Word, though it does suggest that God will deal with them in a Godly manner.

“In the same day also will I punish all those that leap on the threshold, which fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.”
–Zephaniah 1:9

Perhaps it is more accurate to portray these devils as being USED BY God to further His ends, rather than ‘servants’ who totally do His bidding.

So, while God’s Word does NOT explicitly detail what happens to the demons which make up much of God’s end times army, it does implicitly suggest their ultimate disposition.

HAS the reader ever thought of demons (devils)?

OR, does the reader believe the many stories of man concerning these demonic entities?

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.

Will God Really Forgive My Worst Behavior?

ABOMINATION

“He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.”
–Proverbs 17:15

Scattered throughout God’s Word are acts which He terms “abominations.”

What are abominations?

There are five different words translated abomination in the Bible. The predominant meaning is, “to stink, to be loathsome, uncleanness” (Old Testament Word Studies by Wilson, pg. 3).
What does “abomination” mean?

Abominations” are behaviors so bad, they STINK to God.

Most of mankind has participated in one abomination or another.

BUT, God is all-merciful and so, He will forgive even behavior which he has called “abominable.”

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
–1JOHN 1:9

God not only FORGIVES man’s transgressions, he chooses to  NOT even remember them.

“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.”
–Hebrews 8:12

“And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
–Jeremiah 31:34

Basically, God forgives all man’s sins which offend man.  IF a sin offends a man, most likely it is because that man has repented and understands what SIN really is.

SIN is death, NOT fun.

“Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
–James 1:15

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned”
–Romans 5:12

When man truly understands that sin is death, then he will be extended the  never-ending mercy of God.

And God’s mercy (also called “grace“) is who God is.

“For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.”
–Psalm 100:5

“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”
–Lamentations 3:22-23

“for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him.”
–2CHRONICLES 30L9

IN FACT, it is because of GOD’s great mercy that man is born again (spiritually reborn).

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
–1PETER 1:3-5

SOME readers may wonder why such an obvious thing as God’s Mercy is the topic of discussion today.

We live in a time of great deception.  Modern man no longer understands those things–such as the great and unending mercy of God–which ONCE were common knowledge.

And so, it is necessary to point out the great and never-ending qualities to God’s mercy.

Because there are those who have NEVER heard of this.

REMEMBER: God will forgive ANYTHING, no matter how bad; no matter if the actions He forgives are so bad, He can smell them: they STINK to Him.

No matter how bad the reader has been, God has seen worse.

And IF the reader truly seeks forgiveness, then forgiveness will be found.

DO NOT DELAY.

SEEK FORGIVENESS FROM GOD WHILE IT MAY BE HAD.

DOES the reader believe he requires the great mercy of God?

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.

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
