To miss what is going on in the world, we would need to be living in a bubble. Of course, as believers, we knew that this day would come when the whole world seems to be falling apart from horrific firestorms to unbelievably extreme temperatures and from unchecked lawlessness to the grossest of sexual perversions. Perhaps the worst for the true believer is to see so many fall away and embrace all the lies of the devil as if they were the gospel truth. It is enough to make you weep in great agony.
We Can Make Things Better
Perhaps the most dangerous lie is that we can make the world better through the political process. This has been a lie used many times throughout history raising up the Caesars, Napoleons, and Hitler’s promising to make things better, but in the end creating a cult-like mentality, which brought death and destruction to the world. This thinking of making things better through the political process is antithetical to the Way presented by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Jesus Christ came to earth to show us a better way of truly making things better. The Christian way is through transformational change one person at a time. The heart and mind must be changed by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. The devil cares only about manipulating your heart and mind to believe his lies thus creating a cult-like mentality. He wants you to believe that forcing everyone through his new laws will cause them to align with his way, or your way of thinking, which will overcome the divisions, and establish a brave new world. This is a very dangerous and deceptive lie of the devil that will ingeniously target religious people who will be willing to follow him to hell and back. They will even proclaim him as some kind of saint or savior that will deliver the world from very evil and corrupt people. They may even proclaim that God has raised him to fix the world through the political process. Stop listening to the devil who can even disguise himself as an angel of light (II Corinthians 11:14). This will be the path that the dreaded Antichrist will take causing you to believe that he has your best interest at heart. This deception will be so strong that people will freely worship him as the savior of humanity believing that he alone will stop the wars, the outrageous lawlessness, and even the wrath of God as we had discussed earlier. Let’s stop listening to the devil’s lies and return to God’s way of real lasting change.
The Great Escape
This next lie of the devil has mainly affected the Western nations, and specifically America. This was caused by a prophecy of a little girl, then later popularized by John Darby in 1833 that claimed a secret rapture before the Great Tribulation, but what does the Bible say? The Bible says, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (II Thessalonians 2:3-4). Yes, we’re already seeing the great falling away, but the faithful remnant has not yet identified the Antichrist. Let no man be deceived! We are living in an age of deception. The Book of Revelation describes this man of sin, the son of perdition in the 13th Chapter, nearly halfway through the Great Tribulation after many plagues and woes have already fallen upon unrepentant humanity. I have written extensively about each of these plagues and woes in my previous writings. After the arrival of the man of sin (or the man of lawlessness) who is referred to as the Beast in the Revelation, we find two more references to the saints, the followers of Jesus Christ, receiving words of encouragement and direction. The Bible says in the 14th Chapter after the Antichrist is identified, “Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12). Clearly, this will call for a time of great patience for the faithful remnant or saints. Then, in the 18th Chapter, just before the fall of Babylon, the nation of the Beast who rules the Western world, we hear another word to the saints, the faithful remnant of God. The Bible says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5). At this point, the faithful remnant finally realized that they cannot change the system, so their only option is to come out from among them. Stop listening to the devil, the spawner of false prophecies, and listen only to God. There will be a catching up of God’s faithful remnant at the coming of Jesus Christ in the clouds, after the Great Tribulation, “where every eye shall see Him” (Revelation 1:7). What a glorious day that will be! No secret rapture for every eye shall see. Stop Listening to the devil.
The Perfect Man
This lie is the most damming because it creates an air of superiority and perceived righteousness that’s unequal to the rest of the world. They believe that artificial intelligence will help them reach perfection. Of course, we are talking about the West and specifically America. Although there are many contributing factors to this attitude, perhaps the most significant is their democratic values of openness to every individual and their ideas even if they transcended and supplant religious norms. This openness has embraced the ideologies and all the other religions of the world. In time, they took great pride in their sciences and technological advancements, which moved them further and further away from their traditional beliefs in an all-powerful God to a self-imposed righteousness with an air of superiority. Now we move to the second woe, “The Muslim Invasion.” Although this invasion has been happening since the sixth century, it has progressed lately by succeeding in Afghanistan and solidifying all the Muslim countries’ hatred against the United States, which they see as the devil filled with every manner of perversion and abominations. Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and with the West pouring money and materials into the conflict the Eastern alliance is being formed that includes Russia, Iran, North Korea, China, and a host of other countries opposed to the West. This concerted effort by Russia has united the Muslim hordes from the East to fulfill the prophecy in the Book of Revelation. I have written extensively about how God has always used other countries to strike militarily against His fallen or faltering children in their host countries to wake them up and return to Him alone. Although most western countries are still pridefully displaying their depravity on the streets of their cities, it should be commended that Ukraine has recently cracked down on much of their historic corruption. The depravity in the West will simply never go away until there is a fundamental change in the hearts of their citizens. Consequently, they will pay the price for their unrepentance, for God will empower the Eastern nations to strike an unrelenting blow against the West as seen in the second woe (Revelation 9:12-21). Stop listening to the devil who is fanning your air of superiority and encouraging your self-imposed righteousness apart from God. As the faithful remnant, we must lead this country to true repentance or witness its final destruction in the Apocalypse. Please, dear children, stop listening to the seven lies of the devil as we fast approach the End of Days and share the truth with your family and friends.
