Deception, according to Webster’s dictionary, is by design or illusion; implies the use of tricks in fraudulently deceiving others; it is deliberate deception in dishonesty, depriving a person of property, rights.
It all began in the Garden of Eden, when Satan deceived Eve. That was the first great deception, one that affected the eternal destiny of men. From the time that Eve believed the serpent and fell for it, the curse fell on all men. Satan gained an entrance to men’s mind and through it he led the human race into the practice of evil. That was the fall that brought endless consequential results. We were all born spiritually dead as a result. The fruit looked good to Eve, because she did not realize that the serpent’s purpose was to damage God’s reputation. It was a matter for Eve to discredit and doubt God’s word. Satan’s words were like slippery ground and Eve fell into it. Deception, deception, a thing that takes us under the wheels of a truck without us knowing it, until too late. It is the way to destruction. Satan, the father of lies and deception, continues pursuing the human race to their destruction. He is a thief, a liar, a deceiver. YAHSHUA said of him, The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (John 10:10). Deception shows one thing, but it is the opposite. The world is turning itself in many directions of deceptions right now. Many have lost their lives, for disapproving truth and embracing deception. Slowly, they slipped into their own destruction. Someone observed the fakeness we live in: “fake people, fake food, fake medicine, fake weather, fake news, fake History, fake pandemics, fake revolution and fake spirituality.” The purpose of the few is to destroy humanity through any means they can put their hands on. They sell a host of goodies under the pretension of a store with good prices, so to satisfy their evil agenda. For more details do a search with these key words Walmart, Evergreen, Getty Museum and FEMA. You will be shocked beyond belief.
YAHSHUA warned us in one of His sermons that false messiahs and false prophets will arise and show signs and miracles to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect. But look to yourselves, He said, and be on your guard; I have told you everything beforehand (Mark 13:22-23). Test the spirits, to see whether they are from God, because many prophets have gone out into the world, says the Word of God in I John 4:1: Testing of spirits is by the knowledge of the Word of God. Anything that we hear or read that is not in line with the Word of God, should not be accepted as truth. The way one is guided into deceit is by ignorance of Scriptures. There will be a day when Satan, through the antichrist, will pervert and seduce with flatteries those who do not know the truth. His coming is through the activity and working of Satan and he will be attended by great power and with all sorts of miracles and signs and delusive marvels (II Thess. 2:9). The world will marvel at his deceptions and will fall into his trickeries. There will be many who profess to be Christians who will believe him. There are two kinds of Christians: the born-again Christian, who follows the Bible, and believes in eternal salvation through the sacrifice of YAHSHUA and do not worship idols; the Lord YAHSHUA is their leader; and there are those Christians who are called Catholics who believe salvation is through work; they believe also in the existence of purgatory, which is the “condition, process, or place of purification or temporary punishment in which, according to medieval Christian and Roman Catholic belief, the souls of those who die in a state of grace are made ready for heaven.” The Pope is the head of the state and the Catholic Church. In fact, lately, in a very important ceremony lead by the Pope, the cantor led the congregation in prayer with words indicating the “imminent emergency of the near event coming to light of the antichrist.” He sang these words: “His flame Lucifer, dawning his own creation: man, I say, O Lucifer, who knows no setting. Christ your son who came back from the dead and shed his peaceful light to the human race, and is alive and reigns forever more.” And everyone said, Amen! This is pure deceit, one that will lead many to believe Satan to be the Messiah. This ceremony the Pope wanted the entire world to see. It was the announcement to the world concerning the son of perdition as the false messiah. It seems that the antichrist will be revealed to the world through the leadership of the Catholic Church. The resurrected son of perdition-Judas, will take his position as the antichrist under the leadership of Satan.
