The Great Delusion

Just living the true Christian life is enough of a mystery for most people. However, consider that God will Himself, according to scripture, pour out a “strong delusion” upon all lukewarm1 and pretentious Christians of the final hour. Now, add to that the emergence of The Beast2 System, which is part of Antichrist’s government, and which already appears to be laying around us even now the groundwork for its arrival. ~ “And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie” (2Thessalonians 2.11). 

The Great Apostasy

The teachings of the word of God from Genesis to Revelation make it clear that the socially acceptable church that is seen now will fall away from God in the last days in the Great Apostasy of the church, which is written about by the Apostle Paul in the book of 2 Thessalonians. ~ “Let no one deceive you by any means; for [that Day will not come] unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition” (2Thessalonians 2.3). 

Giants of Social Media

As the stage is being set for the Great Delusion to take its toll, the elect of God are preparing for the final confrontation. It’s evident that the spirit of darkness is rapidly taking control of what were a short time ago reliable sources of information. Corrupt governments, the elite rich of the world, unscrupulous news media corporations, along with a debased entertainment industry, and the nefarious giants of social media are all working coercively together by the unseen hand of the antichrist to starve the masses of all truth, while they feed them propaganda and mental-programming. 

Silicon Valley

The Bible teaches that God’s judgement always begins3 in His own temple and among His own people. Every trace of truth is being erased from the consciousness of the masses at an alarming speed, but it is of no surprise to those who have diligently searched the scriptures. The Man of Sin (Antichrist) will rule the world’s masses largely through mind-control, which will operate for the most part through a marriage of state-of-the-art information technology and mass media communication networks. 99.9% of what is considered truth on the street is whatever social media has decided to broadcast, which is paving the way for government and the tech giants of Silicon Valley to dictate ‘truth’ via a form a fascist coercion. 

The Lie

All truth is being removed from the consciousness of the masses so it can be replaced by what scripture has denominated as ‘The Lie.’ ~ “And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie” (2Thessalonians 2.11). What is meant by the term — ‘The lie,’ you ask. This is the mother of all of the great lies the deceiver has boasted down through the centuries. His last great lie, which will deceive most of the known world, is nothing less than… “The devil (Antichrist) is God, even Jesus Christ.” ~ “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2Thessalonians 2.4). 

War of the Worlds

How will the devil deceive hundreds of millions of luke-warm Christians throughout the world into believing that the Antichrist is God in the flesh, you ask. The answer to that question is really quite obvious. It will most likely be an intricately planned web of false miracles propagandized stealthily through the coordinated effort of media giants across the globe. People forget just how much power mass media commands over the thinking of the multitudes. However, there is an important and historical case that demonstrates the magnitude of the power that media sways over the mind of the innocent but naive masses, which actually took place. On October 30, 1938, mass hysteria and panic erupted when a radio station broadcasted a narration of the book ‘War of the Worlds’ by Orson Welles. The broadcast4 was meant to be a Halloween joke, but listeners became delirious and pandemonium brock out when they heard what appeared to be a news report of an alien spaceship that had landed on a farm in New Jersey and extraterrestrials began disembarking from the ship. 

The Working of Satan

Experts agree that with today’s hologram technologies and other high-tech instruments, the Beast system of antichrist would have little difficulty deceiving the masses into believing in his ability to even rise from the dead and perform whatever type of lying wonder necessary to control the public and crown himself has the risen Savior. The Bible puts it this way… ~ “The coming of the [lawless one] is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders” (2Thessalonians 2.9). If you want to understand what is going on around you and begin to take steps to prepare yourself to overcome the present darkness, don’t miss this timely message!

And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.
