It is no coincidence that the face of Christianity has been replaced by pseudo Christianity. This has been the enemy’s end goal and since our salvation is nearer than when we first believed, our time is definitely running short. Christians have been facing waves of seductive philosophies furthered in works dubbed as fiction infused with theological poison intent to challenge God’s Word that has stood the test of time.
We must brace ourselves for the big tsunami that is currently sweeping Christianity as we speak. Could this wave be the hammer of the rebellion, the precursor to the great delusion mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 (NASB),
“For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false…”
“For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.“
Dangerous doctrines (momentarily- I say this because the Holy Spirit gently nudges the believer back to the truth) deceive “even the elect” and sadly some are won over by the seducing “evidence” of emotional healing it appears to achieve. If people are easily won over in this way, how much more a deception on a supernatural level?
“Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.”
2 Thessalonians 2:3
People will first need to be preconditioned for “the” great deception to occur and since there’s plenty of literature that attack Scripture and the doctrines contained in it eroding absolute truth within society, the time is getting ripe for the man of lawlessness’ unveiling.
Think of being in a shack. What are your chances of surviving when a tsunami hits? We can only imagine instant destruction as the powerful force knocks the frail structure. Scary thought, isn’t it? Yet this is what’s happening to believers right now in the spiritual realm with an ongoing battle so fierce it is not meant for us to see otherwise most people who are not grounded in the truth of Jesus Christ will lose faith.
“Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. 30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent…”
Let us not go after any image of God concocted in the imaginations of men, but of what God Himself revealed to us in His holy Word for He desires that we worship Him in Spirit and in truth (John 4:24). God’s truth and promises is our anchor and to those who are standing up for the truth, let us unite because the big wave seeks for our destruction.
We are targeted to be its casualties. Will you be a casualty or a remnant? It is in your power to choose.
