I write and speak a lot about deception. The reason is that deception is Satan’s primary method of defeating and trapping professing Christians. Further, God’s word makes it clear that deception will be exceptionally powerful and alluring in these last days (Matthew 24:24).
It is obvious that most professing Christians have not realized or accepted how very difficult it will be to survive end times deception. How difficult? It will be the greatest difficulty most people have ever encountered. It is like an astounding magic show and demonic multilevel marketing scheme combined. It is becoming the fad of fads, the trick of tricks, the con of cons, sin of sins, and the deception of deceptions by the god of this world in his final attempt to usurp the throne of the King of kings and Lord of lords. Are you ready?
Consider that the Parable of Ten Virgins depicts the five wise and five foolish ones as being exactly alike in appearance. The only difference was the five rejected ones were foolish not to have a reserve of oil. “Foolish” is the Greek word “moros”, from which we get “moron”. It means, “dull or stupid, heedless, a moral blockhead, absurd.” They knew they were supposed to have reserve oil, had time to gather it, and yet ignored all wisdom and prudence. How many professing Christians are doing precisely the same thing today?
Consider that Christ declared that the only way to tell the false prophets from the true ones would be by their fruit (Matthew 7:15-16). Many professing Christians today love the fruit of false prophets. Click here to continue reading.
