And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.( 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)
A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? (Jeremiah 5:30-31)
I have been exploring the widespread acceptance of what fairly recently would have been absolutely unacceptable. One of example of this is Gay Pride month and all that goes along with it; Gay Marriage, Transgender Story Hour, and the annual Bacchanalian street festivals featuring every form of perversion imaginable, but which is considered a family friendly annual event.
Children are involved in this, and no one seems to be alarmed at it. We related the story of the Amazing Desmond who is a ten year old trans child touring at gay events, taken to gay bars and is being marketed as the face of a new kind of trans Kid. Where is the Law? Where are the various layers of child protection services? What is going on?
I and many others are coming to the conclusion that this is the very Strong Delusion that the Apostles and Prophets of the Bible would come upon the world as a judgment sent by God. This has happened so rapidly in our formerly Judeo/Christian society, it is the only reasonable explanation I can imagine. God is Judging us as a society,
When God judges a people, He often merely gives them over to their sinful and destructive desires completely.
The sin that brings the Judgment is that They had pleasure in unrighteousness, that is, they Loved a certain Lie or a set of Lies. They didnt want to know the truth that was presented to them, they insisted upon the lie/lies therefore God is giving them over to those lies.
Why would seemingly normal, sane and reasonable people, many with families, and children, embrace Gay Pride month, and involve their own children in Transgender Story Hour at the local library. Most of these are not necessarily homosexual or sexually perverted, why would they be in support of it? What particular unrighteousness do they take pleasure in ? What lies do they love?
* There is no Judgment everybody is to be accepted.
* There is no good or evil all people regardless are good.
*We now have a much more compassionate (non judgmental) society than ever.
* Fundamentalist Christianity is wrong with its insistence upon right and wrong.
* Humanity is on the very verge of a Utopia, a smarter, more compassionate, non judgmental, multicultural, world of humanism.
These are some of the lies they cherish. Very much along the demonic anthem written by John Lennon, Imagine, those who are perishing love that particular vision, and when the Christian revelation is presented to them in its stark reality, they reject it absolutely. This would present a challenge to a society in which most consider themselves Christian.
This isnt a problem however, because there are so many churches who will accommodate the LIE, and whose ministers have already been inwardly seduced by the god of this age into accepting the lie.
Examples of this abound, for example, the church which took up the slack when Transgender Story Hour was cancelled in a small town in Ohio, because there were still enough sane people to resist it. In the name of compassion, tolerance and diversity a Methodist church announced that it would open its doors for it.
Another prominent example comes with the Israel Falau incident. He took a costly stand against the lie, in the name of Christ, but ,a HREF="https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6913819/Hillsong-founder-Brian-Houston-slams-Folau-gay-post.html">Brian Houston of Hillsong church, openly rebuked Falau, again in the name of compassion, betraying Falau, the gospel and denying Christ himself.
How they love the lie! They cherish the amoral, non judgmental version of love and acceptance which has usurped the gospel in many peoples hearts and will send them ultimately to Hell.
If they can believe in these obvious vanities, they will have no problem receiving the Mark of the Beast, which is the final and irreversible act of apostasy. They will line up to take it, and for those too squeamish, there are many pastors and theologians of all kinds, being prepared to calm peoples fears and to take the Mark, as they will demonstrate to have done.
It is hard to break free of a self serving lie, and to chose instead an unflattering truth. It is a miracle anyone will be saved. In order to be saved we must jettison our fantasies about our own innate goodness, and about the good which is within all men and humble ourselves to the Truth revealed by Jesus, the prophets and apostles. We are sinners, deeply fallen and incapable of saving ourselves.Only God can save us, and that, only by the cross of Jesus.
How did we come to believe this? How did we get to the point where we actually came to love this humbling message? Why do we still love it and cling to it even when Truth is temporarily being eclipsed? Only the Holy Spirit brought us to this point, where we received the Love of the Truth.
[And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.( 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)]
Yes, people should know this verse is associated with the rise of the Lawless One, the Man of Sin.
For shorthand, “the Antichrist” - The Bible doesn’t call him that directly. He is preceded by the spirit of antichrist.
Who has been operating for roughly 2,000 years, admittedly.
1 John 4:2-4 King James Version (KJV)
2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
“We now have a much more compassionate (non judgmental) society than ever.” If you disagree you can lose your job, be ostracized, sent to a reeducation camp. Is burning at the stake next?
Thanks again, for keeping the Truth before us.
My personal belief is that the Antichrist is alive on this earth now awaiting his soon coronation as the “Man of Sin.” He is a homosexual himself, and extremely activist about it.
It is called Political Correctness, it is 40 years old now and it has conditioned enough people to fear it that now they can get away with the unacceptable. Only a few years ago fag marriage died in every vote it was held to. There is only one way out of this. It won’t be pretty.
Very possibly so
God Bless Pastor!
It is hard to imagine Sodom and Gommorah were more wicked than much of our culture.
This story is more evidence of the evil mankind is descending into. People who believe the lies of sodomy and the child abuse of brainwashing children into these perversions are already deceived and headed for judgement.
This is now what happens when you take a stand against the deceived.
Tweet the "wrong" thing? Read and "inflammatory" book? Join a "hateful" group? Participate in a "harmful" blog?
Your travel will be restricted. Your job will be on the line. Banks and credit card companies won't do business with you.
It's all coming.
The other signs of the times are too numerous to ignore.
All of these things are gonna happen, for sure.
It’s just a matter of time...how much, I don’t know.
But the global insanity is...well...global.
Praying towards Mecca.
Whoa. I never saw that second one before.
Which one was that?
Papa Benedictus I do believe.
Global Insanity is pandemic these days it seems.
Even the Church itself is reeling from it.
However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
If He doesn’t return soon, He might not.
“* There is no Judgment everybody is to be accepted.
* There is no good or evil all people regardless are good.
*We now have a much more compassionate (non judgmental) society than ever.”
Can’t tell you how many battles I’ve had with my “family” on modern morality and how this will not end well with The Lord.
But I’m the “hater” so they tell me....
