The False Prophet, Part 15: “Deceiving The Elect With Loud Mics!”

To read Part 1 of this series, click here… “JANUARY 26 (The False Prophet, Part 1: Lying Eyes!)”

.

.

.

.

“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets,

and shall show great signs and wonders;

insomuch that, if [it were] possible,

they shall deceive the very elect.”

Matthew 24:24

.

.

.

.

.

Our signature verse today from Matthew 24:24, stands as a fearful warning that Satan will come with some very close counterfeits in these last days.

.

Listen again… “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matthew 24:24

NOT SOME LITTLE GROUP 

.

.

One very important Bible truth, which has been greatly lost sight of, is that it is not some little cult that will deceive if possible, even the Elect.

.

No, it’s not even some minor entity, such as a particular radio ministry that will lead astray God’s people in the last days.

.

Oh yes, many are deceived by various false gospels. And certainly there are many apostate radio and television ministries.

LEADERS OF THE MAINSTREAM

But listen to Isaiah…“O My people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. ” Isaiah 3:12

.

As this above verse reveals, it was the mainstream leaders of God’s professed people which caused almost the entire nation to reject the Messiah, Jesus, and put Him on the Cross!

.

These were the most famous, the most respected, and the most trusted persons in that nation, which deceived the people concerning Christ!

MAINSTREAM CHRISTIANITY

.

And so it is today!

.

And while many respected and revered church leaders will attempt to point the accusing finger at this or at that little group as being the greatest threat to God’s people, the fact is, it is mainstream Christianity itself which is leading God’s people down a false path, and into ultimate destruction!

MAINSTREAM CHURCH OF THE DARK AGES

.

.

Just look at the Dark Ages!

.

Was it some tiny cult or some rogue individual who caused God’s people to endure trials, hardships, lack of Bibles, banishment, imprisonment, torture, and death through those centuries?

.

No, it was the mainstream church of Europe that caused the Dark Ages! God’s people at that time were merely a tiny remnant by comparison to the apostate and tyrannical church of that day!

THE GREAT APOSTASY OF MAINSTREAM CHRISTIANITY

.

And so, while today’s church leaders are busy targeting “those cults”, as the big problem, the fact is, the great apostasy is found in mainstream Christianity, both in conservative and liberal churches alike!

.

Listen again to the warning from Jesus…“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [it were] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” Matthew 24:24

.

Notice in this above verse, that the two words, “[it were]”, are supplied words and not in the actual text. This is because Satan can and will, and already is deceiving the very Elect.

DECEIVED BUT NOT LOST

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpg

Oh no, Satan cannot destroy the soul of even one of God’s true Elect!

.

But Satan can deceive God’s Elect up to a certain point.

.

And the fact is, God probably has many true worshipers interspersed within the ranks of the apostate church-world. (And He is now calling them out!)

.

A VERY CLOSE COUNTERFEIT!

.

What many Christians do not take into account is, that in order to deceive the very Elect, the deception has to be really good!

.

Therefore, there are many radio ministries and even some television ministries which sound so close to the true Gospel, it is almost impossible to distinguish them from the real thing!

.

And these ministries have the biggest and loudest microphones! They are the most renowned and the most well-respected voices in Christendom! They teach right from the Bible, or so it seems. Many even go right through the Bible, verse-by-verse in their daily Bible studies!

.

UNBIBLICAL HERMENEUTIC

.

One great problem is, that most Christian ministries have adopted a false hermeneutic known as the “Hermeneutic of Historical and Grammatical Literalism”.

.

In other words, they hold to the totally unbiblical notion that the Bible must be interpreted literally, and not spiritually, unless context demands a spiritual, allegorical interpretation.

.

This false doctrine is a man-contrived addition to the Bible, since nowhere in the Bible does such a command exist!

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

“COMPARING SPIRITUAL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL”

.

Therefore, by this totally non-biblical hermeneutic, they have locked themselves out of much of the Bible.

.

And so, when studying the Old Testahttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:US_Navy_100326-N-4774B-066_Chaplain_Lt._Jason_Gregory_reads_bible_verses_on_the_weather_deck_aboard_the_guided-missile_cruiser_USS_Bunker_Hill_(CG_52).jpgment prophets, they must only apply those books to ancient Israel instead of making a spiritual application to the New Testament Church.

.

Oh yes, those Old Testament prophecies did indeed apply to Old Testament Israel.

.

But by “comparing spiritual things with spiritual”, there is a much more grand application of these Old Testament prophecies to the New Testament Church as well. (see 1st Corinthians 2:13 & 10:11)

24/7/365 DENUNCIATIONS

.

But day and night, night and day, these loud radio, television, and Internet voices continually hammer into the heads of their audience, their harsh denunciations of all those who dare contradict this false hermeneutic.

.

After all, Satan fully understands that if he tells his lies long enough and loud enough, the great unlearned multitudes will accept these deceptions as “truth”.

.

Thus, in these last days, Satan has raised up false prophets, who by their personal charm, and wit, and intellect, have become the biggest and loudest voices in Christendom!

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!”

.

At this present hour, God is calling His people to, “Come out of her (the apostate churches), My people, that ye not partake of her sins, and receive not of her plagues!” Revelation 18:4http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

.

Yes, the time has come for God’s true sheep to make their end-time exodus out of these apostate organizations which can often be so close to the truth, that they will, “deceive, if possible, the very Elect!”

“BREAD SHALL BE GIVEN…WATERS SHALL BE SURE”

.

And even though we must leave our comfortable social life within the churches, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpgGod’s promise to every fleeing Believer is, “upon every high (spiritual) mountain, and upon every (spiritual) high hill…(heavenly) bread shall be given him; his waters (of grace) shall be sure!” (see Isaiah 30:25 & 33:16 (parenthetical comments by Editor))

.

Yes, for those who join this end-time exodus out of the apostate churches, God promises to supply an abundance of heavenly bread and waters of grace.

.

And the separated Christian will be delighted at how abundant will be God’s provisions upon every high spiritual mountain!

You may wish to listen to this 20 minute Bible study regarding Hebrews 6, in which God speaks about the impossibility of renewing to repentance of those who fall away. You may be surprised to learn the true meaning of this passage. (This study is conducted by Harold Camping of Family Radio.)

.

Valley of Decision w/names

.

“The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining… 

.

“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem…

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

 

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
