Jesus said, speaking about the last days, “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:11). False prophets speaking on the news channels, social media, and political platforms have clearly deceived many to the point where everyone has their own opinions. The various opinions are ripping this nation and the West apart pitting one person against another in open hostility. This has gotten so bad that they have set up government agencies, organizations, and apps to deal with false and deceptive claims. It’s gotten to the point where most of us, of the faithful remnant, may scan the headlines, but then will spend the remainder of the day in prayer listening only to God. Most of us would rather say nothing than spreading a lie, propaganda, or a false prophecy. This deception and conspiracy theories have gotten so bad that it has adversely affected God’s children by leading them further away from trusting in God exclusively. It has gotten so bad that the words of Jesus are being fulfilled in our day that says, “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another” (Matthew 24:10). Of course this hatred will lead to total chaos, which has already invaded our country. Continue reading Why Bother Reading This Article?
Lies are tearing this world apart. The more the same lies are repeated, the deeper they are entrenched into our minds with decreased cognitive ability to separate the truth from a lie. The father of lies, Satan, knows this so he continues repeating the same lies again and again even repackaging the lies to make them even more appealing. When this happens even the lies will seem like the truth driving the world further and further into bondage. The deeper the bondage, the greater the fear, which will drive unbridled emotions of passion to strike back at the other side with impunity. The whole world is being divided pitting one side against another driving a deeper wedge between nations, political parties, family members, and even Christians. Satan has been doing this since the beginning by turning humanity against their Creator with a well-placed lie. Satan has done it throughout history by dividing the Church and raising up lawless men to lead entire countries into bondage by believing their lies. We saw it in Napoleon, we saw it in Hitler, and we will see it again in the coming Antichrist. Continue reading The Truth Shall Make You Free
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. Continue reading Seven Lies of the Devil – Part II
These seven lies of the devil is driving humanity further away from their creator and causing many of God’s children to stumble. This is the main cause of the great falling away in the Last Days before the revealing of the dreaded Antichrist. We will expose the lies by revealing the truth.
Labels, Labels, Labels
The devil loves labels. There are many popular labels like PTSD, stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, fear, loneliness, and emotional brain fog. As a Biblical counselor for many years the most heart wrenching thing is to see the world’s counselors give their counselees a label. These labels describe their emotional and psychological problem by giving it a name and describing in detail their expected behavior problems both mentally and physically. Unfortunately, this gives them an excuse to act out their new problems diagnosed by the worlds counselors. Furthermore, the psychotropic drugs prescribed to their counselees often create additional problems keeping them locked into years of counseling and drug addiction. Lamentably, the fallen world seeks a label for their problems absolving them of any personal responsibility for overcoming their bad attitude and unacceptable behavior. I have written extensively about the “Silent Pandemic of Mental Illnesses,” which is the first woe in the Book of Revelation, which is a clear consequence for rejecting God’s ability to fix their problems. There is deliverance from this horrible lie of the devil by leading their counselees to Christ in faith believing that through repentance they will be delivered from this woe and that Christ alone will solve all their emotional and psychological problems by making them into a new creation. The most important thing about being a Christian counselor is helping people to overcome their problems, so that they can continue their spiritual growth and enjoy all the blessings of spiritual maturity. The Bible says, “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (II Peter 1:3). We must stop listening to the lies of the devil whose only desire is to give them a label to keep them trapped in their emotional and psychological problems for the rest of their lives. Stop listening to the devil. Continue reading Seven Lies of the Devil – Part I
“The truth will set you free,” has rung through all the hallowed halls of humanity since these words were first uttered two millennia ago by the Son of God. As the world goes deeper and deeper into bondage, they still don’t understand the meaning of these amazingly powerful words. Consequently, the world is still being held captive by the powers of darkness, which has created enslavement to every emotional and psychological problem known to mankind. Hate and hostility are literally ripping them apart as the whole world is racing toward Armageddon. The prophets of old spoke about a time in the future when the spirit of Antichrist would arise as the man of lawlessness in an age of unchecked anarchy and unfettered lawlessness. Well, the time is now, and the great nations of the earth have sunk deeper into bondage legalizing every abominable transgression against God’s holy law. It’s most difficult to just read the headlines in the daily news media where nearly every story has humanity fighting against one another with slanderous words, unbelievable accusations, and unfiltered propaganda or some new conspiracy theory. There is not a day that goes by where people are savagely killed, wounded, or even tortured beyond belief. Listen, and you can hear their voices crying out in agony with no known escape from their horrific captivity. Continue reading Only Truth Will Set Us Free
