Has God sent a great deslusion?

I think many are left wondering after this eventful election season and the events of this last year that are continuing into this year is this the beginning of the strong delusion prophesied about that if possible would even deceive the elect, those who elect to follow Jesus to the end. I commented on this in the attached video to make you think like it did me about this delusional state of mind that will present among those perishing.

My opinion only...All this stuff you are seeing now is simply the setup for the One World government...and the man of sin. The Great Deception is yet to come...The world will be decieved but the primary target is Christians....What will it take to fool you into thinking that your creators have returned? Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

I never listen to dreams and visions outside of the ones in the Bible. I'm one of those that either click off or forward through those parts. I think the delusion/apostacy is already here in the church.

I live in a good size city with a church on every other street corner (all still voluntarily closed). When I go shopping several times per week, there has not been one other person with an unveiled face like mine. I'm pretty sure that more than half of these masked, perfectly healthy people would identify as Christians, yet they present themselves before God and the world in obedience to Satan. Whether it is Stockholm Syndrome, mind control, plain fear or ignorance, the result is the same, they have no idea of the reality of their foray into the occult, and therefore, are under a strong delusion.

So what you're saying is that you would rather throw out the truth to avoid the lies? Wouldn't it be more productive to trust the Holy Spirit to guide you?

God predestined me to be saved, He put His Holy Spirit inside of me. I am in the process of sanctification through study of His Word and by obeying Jesus' commandments. I pray every day to be guided by The Holy Spirit into all truth and to please The Father in every thought, word and deed. I also pray for His Will to be worked out in my life each day, since I can't know what I should do for Him.

The great deception is yet to come. 2 Thess 2 places it in the tribulation.

2 Thess 2:9-12 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 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.

The delusion will be God somehow supporting the ''lie'' of the devil being christ.

The wicked will have a period where they will truly believe the anti-christ is the messiah / god. God will enable that to happen.

I can imagine that many who hate what is wicked, being dumbfounded and maybe wondering to themselves if they are serving the all powerful. Power should not matter, only one's hatred or love of what is wicked. This is God's last acid test of His people.

I agree...While there IS apostasy in the church, the Great apostasy is yet to come...Many Christians WILL give up their salvation and accept that deception as true...Why? Simply because they have not grounded themselves in the Word. What form will that deception take? First Those that seeded the human race on planet Earth will show up, at this very critical juncture of our development, to lead us into the next phase of our evolution. Then things will get interesting...The miraculous things they do will convince many Christians of their veracity. All they are doing however is showing us technology. Take this chip and you will have a lifespan of five hundred years with no sickness....Heh heh...Take this chip...it will only change your DNA so that you are no longer human...Never mind the fact that Jesus came to save humans from their sin....Never mind that Jesus did not come to save chimera but only humans. Oh That Satan is nasty! He's the master liar.

God does not support lies...He will sit back though, and let the enemy hang himself.

What is a “Strong Delusion?” Delusion means lie, deceit. In 2 Thessalonians when a Strong Delusion is mentioned, it is clearly talking about the last days. Before the rapture occurs there must be a great falling away - the relevance of the Word of God slips away. People will fail to trust solely in the Word of God and will instead turn to teachers who tell them what their itching ears want to hear: dark liberalism. Once God is no longer the center of society, a strong delusion rules and society follows. Then Christ returns as a thief in the night.

The falling away began in the 60s when dark liberalism started the cultural revolution. The Word of God was replaced with self rule and the mantra being preached and embraced was to be open minded and do as you please. Dark liberalism took over our universities and education system, our entertainment industries, media and political system.

Satan fueled the falling away with strong delusion. The liberal professors and scientists grew powerful and radically influenced society and government. Then came Big Tech and social media platforms. Together, these liberal elite leaders became the new lords over society. They reshaped the way society thinks and acts and they literally control society because the people have become dependent on the system they created. God and morality has been replaced by self and self pleasure.
When the pandemic hit in 2020, where was the mention of God to save us? What world leader rallied the people to look to God for protection. There wasn’t even one. The world was gripped by fear and world looked to science to save us. In fact, churches and gyms were the first to be locked down. Your spiritual and physical health were given lowest priority. For the past 11 months we have been told to “trust in science and trust in our liberal secular leaders”. The pandemic was a golden opportunity used by dark liberals to completely change society. To force society to surrender to the will of government . God was now officially banished.

The falling away has already happened and is still happening. The Strong delusion Has already begun. It began in the 60s as a pot of water on the stove. We, like the frogs slowly accepted the ever rising temperature. The water is now boiling and we are being cooked alive by the strong delusion.

If I understand this correctly, you are saying that the falling away is among the unsaved? That is not what the Word says....If I'm wrong, could you please clarify....Talk to me as though I had dementia. :)

I don't see much difference between the leadership and members of the current church buildings and the unsaved. To the church at Laodicea in Revelation, Jesus stands at the door and knocks from the OUTSIDE wondering if anyone inside can hear His voice.

Well there is a difference. Those in the churches don't always live according to the Word but they are saved. Thats a major difference right there. Even if you don't see the difference there is that. As for myself, I don't judge others because the way I judge others is the way God has to judge me...according to His Word. I can only judge myself because we are told NOT to judge others. You decide whether or not YOU will live in obedience to the Word.

It is clear that Jesus warns that the end time will be very difficult times and many will fall away. He asks: “will I find any faithful” before His return.

We are repeatedly told to watch and be ready and to hold steadfast in the doctrine of the Truth as recorded in scripture.

We are warned that in the last days there will be a great reversal in society. Good will become evil and evil will become good, right will become wrong and wrong will become right, the natural will become unnatural and the unnatural will become natural, lies will become the truth and truth will become the lie...

This great reversal in society is the falling away. When society no longer looks to and defends God’s Word, God give them up to the strong delusion. There are only two options: follow God or follow self (Satan). Satan is the father of all lies. He whispers to every soul to follow self and to do as you please. If you denounce yourself and your self pleasure, then you are still listening to and following God.

Look at the church today: the community church is all but gone. In its place is the mega church. No real accountability, come when you want, be entertained by a music band, listen to a feel good message, grab some coffee and donuts, buy the pastors books and tapes, then go home and do as you please. No more preaching of denying self; a life of hardship and sacrifice and carrying the cross, not becoming conformed to this world, not being too comfortable in this world, and to denounce idols.

There is a large number of people professing to be “Christians” but in name only. Maintaining their comfortable bubble is their primary concern. This my friend is falling away from the truth and the life Jesus lived.

When the disciples asked Jesus when His return would be, he told us to not be deceived. Meaning, many would fall away from the truth...then He would come as a thief in the night.

So it is clear to me that Christianity will become perverted by false prophets. All of society will be under attack by secular false prophets.

God has been forced out of society since the 60s. Society has embraced the doctrine of self and self pleasure. Yet we see the evidence that society is morally bankrupt.

I was a member of Calvary Chapel and was baptized by Chuck Smith. On one of the walls on the church property was the saying “Jesus is coming back soon.” That saying was removed. I never hear mention of Jesus coming back soon anymore, except from the older generation who still hold to the promises of God.

When Jesus returns for His church it will be to take away those who have not falling away, nor succumbed to the strong delusion. Many who claimed to be Christians will be left behind. You cannot serve two masters.

We're not to judge, IF, we are hypocritically doing the same sin.

I judge people for my physical and spiritual protection, and for choosing if, or how, I will relate/pray for them.

In that respect I agree...We want to stay away from toxic people. No two ways about that, but by not judging the bible is talking of condemning a person mostly I think. You stay away from a person you deem unsafe but you don't write him/her off. Right?
