SATAN HAS YET TO SHOW HIS SIGNS AND WONDERS TO DECEIVE THE WHOLE WORLD - ONLY THROUGH A LOVE OF THE TRUTH CAN WE BE SAVED FROM IT

When the disciples asked Jesus what the signs of His return would be, what did Jesus say first? ... "Take heed that no man DECEIVE you" (Matthew 24:4). Jesus' FIRST concern for us is that we be not deceived!

Many of us are aware of the 'signs' of Jesus' soon return, but how many of us are aware of the massive deceptions yet to take place in this world with all signs and lying wonders to 'deceive if possible, the very elect'? Jesus' first response to the disciples question regarding the signs of His return is very telling indeed. He knew that it was one thing for us to know the signs of His return, but the most important thing we need to know is the TRUTH of God's Word, so that we are not deceived. This is so vital for us to study and understand, as there are great and deadly deceptions coming!

We already live in a world full of deception and evil, but we are yet to see the full power of Satan. The problem is, many people are so focused on the likes of Bill Gates and Co. and their plan to 'depopulate' the earth through the vaccine, or enforcing a physical mark, thinking this is the end game, that they are missing the bigger picture and greater deception. What are many of them missing in their lives? GOD's TRUTH. We are seeing 'revolutions' begin to take place and the calls for unity being proclaimed to defeat the evil plans of the elite. But what many do not realise is that Satan is playing BOTH SIDES in the world and is going to use the CHURCHES who have rejected truth in the last days to deceive the world. In Thessalonians the aspotle Paul told us that before Christ comes we are to see signs and wonders taking place to deceive the whole world into following Satan:

2 Thessalonians 2:8-9 ...'And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.'

One thing to clear up first. The above verses are not talking about the coming of the man of sin after the working of Satan. The words 'even him' are supplied by the translators and should not be there. So the verse should read ... "the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, whose coming is after the working of Satan..." So reading the above correctly, it can only be speaking of Christ's coming after the working of Satan. And this is the whole subject of the chapter if you read it in context - the coming of Christ.

So what is to happen just before Christ comes? Satan using ALL his power through signs and wonders! This should cause every one of us to stop and think ... Do I have the truth of Christ in my life? Am I truly following Christ alone, or am I following the crowd?

Satan has been building his deceptions for a long time, practicing his art of deceiving for thousands of years. But the world has yet to see the FULL power of Satan, as this is reserved for his final signs and wonders just before Jesus returns - the time when Satan will use all his cunning to 'deceive it possible the very elect.'

Matthew 24:24 ...'For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.'

To be able [if it was possible] to deceive the very elect, these signs and wonders [miracles] are going to be of a nature that the world has possibly never seen before - so powerful and deceptive! And what will be the purpose of these signs and wonders [miracles] that Satan is going to perform? To deceive the world into believing a lie, making the world think that it is God who is performing them, deceiving the world into believing error is truth. Causing the world to 'wonder after the beast' and ultimately worship Satan himself.

Revelation 13:13 ...'And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.'

What did Elijah do on mount Carmel? He prayed that God would send fire down from heaven to PROVE that He worshipped the true God. And now in the end times, Satan is going to perform the same kind of 'miracle' through the apostate churches to DECEIVE the world into thinking God is the one behind them.

Now why do I mention that Satan is going to use the churches for this? Well, do you think that Satan is going to purposely expose himself and his followers as outright evil? Well, some of his followers do just that. But in the last days, Satan is going to appear as an 'angel of light' and his followers are going to appear as 'MINISTERS of righteousness.' Look:

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 ...'For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.'

Angel of light? Ministers of righteousness? So what will the deceptions of Satan appear as? GOODNESS and RIGHTEOUSNESS! So his miracles will be performed through the churches to deceive those who do not know the truth into thinking that this is from God.

Revelation 13:13-14 ...'And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.'

Friends, there is something you MUST understand. The earth beast in Revelation 13 that performs the miracles to deceive the world is America, and the 'image' it creates is an image to the Papacy - a church-state union, with the apostate, harlot churches controlling the state and performing the lying wonders.

You can see our pages AMERICA IN PROPHECY and IMAGE OF THE BEAST for more on this.

Revelation 17 gives us a picture of this church-state union with the harlot woman riding the beast. The harlot woman represents the Roman Catholic Church (mother of harlots) and all her fallen Protestant 'daughter' churches who are uniting with their 'mother' in this ecumenical movement. And it is the fallen churches, especially in America, who will control the state and bring about the lying signs and wonders of Satan to make the world think that they are doing God's work. The deceptions, the signs and wonders are going to be so great, 'healings', 'raising people from the dead', communicating with people who are now supposedly in heaven, 'fire from heaven', that there is only one way to not be deceived by them - to have A LOVE FOR THE TRUTH!.

2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 ...'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.'

Friends, what is the only way we can be safe through the coming deceptions with signs and wonders from Satan? To have a love for truth - truth that is in Jesus Christ and His Word. If we don't have a love for the truth of God's Word, then we can be certain that we will fall for the 'strong delusion' that is coming before Jesus returns. Remember, Satan is going to use ALL his power available to deceive the whole world before Christ comes back. And what is the only way to defend against all the power of Satan? To have the power of Christ by being clothed with the WHOLE armour of God. And what is part of that armour? The sword - God's Word - TRUTH!

Let me give you a quick example. If a loved one who has died comes to you with a 'message from heaven', are you going to believe that message? No! You should say, 'get behind me Satan', because the Word of God says that the saints 'sleep in the dust of the ground' until the resurrection (Daniel 12:2). The Word of God also says that 'the dead know not any thing' (Ecclesiastes 9:5). So if you stand upon a 'thus saith the LORD', then you will know, even though your heart strings may be pulling, that this person is NOT your loved one, but an evil angel impersonating them to deceive.

Sadly, many professed Christians do not have a love for the truth and will be taken in by such 'seducing spirits' (1 Timothy 4:1), because they have been captivated by 'spiritualism', believing in the false immortal soul teaching. And this, along with the false Sunday sabbath and the false trinity god is going to deceive many in the last days. Not only that, did you notice in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 above that those who are deceived had 'pleasure in unrighteousness'? Interesting! And what is the prevailing attitude and belief in the churches of the world today? That we need not keep God's commandments and that Jesus will save us IN our sins, rather than FROM our sins. Thus many professed Christians continue to enjoy the sins of the world through movies, television, sport, games, novels, etc. They have what? PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS! So they will be 'given up' to the strong delusion! This is why we MUST have a love for the truth and seek the truth of God's Word with all our heart, turning away from our sins and the world to not be deceived.

Look at the so called 'revivals' that take place among professed Christians. Are they based on holiness? Are they based on the truth of God's Word and obedience to His commandments? No. They are based on mere feelings and excitement! And thus Satan can use them for his purposes.

James 4:4 ...'Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.'

Do you have pleasure in unrighteousness? Do you love sinful movies and tv programs? Is sport an idol in your life? Do you love reading novels and magazines more than God's Word? Do you rather playing games than studying the scriptures? If so, then you are a 'friend of the world' and therefore an 'enemy of God.' Thus God will give you over to the strong delusion coming, because you have pleasure in sin rather than pleasure in truth. Oh friend! Great deception is already in the world and even greater deception is coming. Our only escape is to love and seek the TRUTH and be obedient to it. THEN God will protect us and keep us.

John 14:6 ...'Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.'

John 17:17,19 ...'Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.'

2 Timothy 2:15 ...'Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.'

1 Peter 1:22 ...'Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.'

3 John 1:4 ...'I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.'

Jesus Himself is the truth. So if we don't have a love for truth, then we don't have a love for Jesus. The churches are not the way to the Father, Jesus and His truth is. NOTHING in this world is the way to the Father. Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God is the ONLY way to God and eternal life. Friends, there is MASSIVE deception coming. Please don't put your trust in any person, leader, church, or anything of this world. The churches are already deceived and the majority of them are fallen into grave apostasy, and Satan is going to use the churches especially in the last days to perform his final signs and wonders. They want us to lay down our swords (the Word of God) so that we can all unite in this ecumenical movement. But that is a great deception itself. So please don't put your trust in them. Trust Jesus. Follow Jesus. LOVE His truth. Be open to allow the Holy Spirit to teach you truth, and when it comes your way - LIVE BY IT. NEVER lay down the sword of the Spirit. Then you will be guarded against the final delusion that God is going to allow to take place.
