Strong Delusion in Scripture, Part 3: “Deceiving Even The Elect!”

To read the beginning of this topic of drinking, click here… “May 3 (Strong Delusion in Scripture, Part 2: Drinking Wine)”

.

.

 

“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

.

.

.

.

.

Examine the above verse from Matthew 24:24. Do you notice the brackets around the words, “it were”? Those brackets are added because the King James translators added those two little words to the above sentence, so as to make the sentence sound more complete.

.

Or perhaps they figured that it would be absolutely impossible to deceive the “very elect” people of God!

CHRISTIANS CAN BE DECEIVED!

.

Well the King James translators were partly correct!

.

Satan will not be able deceive the very elect, to the point of damnation. But we must not think that Satan cannot deceive the very elect for a while!

.

In other words, while Satan cannot cause the elect to lose their Salvation. But that doesn’t mean that the very elect are never ever going to be deceived by Satan.

.

No, just look at Paul! Here was a Hebrew of Hebrews, who probably had memorized the entire Old Testament. And yet, in spite of all his knowledge, he was so deceived by Satan, that he was seeking to destroy Christianity!

.

And what about Peter? He was so deceived, that he even denied Jesus.

.

But both Peter and Paul were finally brought to repentance.

“A FORM OF GODLINESS”

2nd Timothy 3:5

.

This world is filled with many deceptions!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Heather_Has_Two_Mommies_cover.jpg

.

Isn’t it true?

.

Don’t we look around and see this http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shakespeare.jpgworld as Satan’s kingdom? And yet there are many things in this world which have an appearance of goodness. And isn’t it true that so many Christians are fooled by some of these seemingly good things?

.

Take the world of literature, for instance. Most Christians have no problem seeing the delusion in such books as “Heather Has Two Mommies”.

.

But when it comes to such literature as say, the Complete Works of Shakespeare, many Christians are easily fhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Huckleberry-finn-with-rabbit.jpgooled! Or what about the writings of Mark Twain? Many Christians think his books are wonderful!

.

And yet the Bible clearly warns us… “To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20.

.

In other words, because neither Shakespeare, nor Mark Twain speak in accordance with the Bible, it must be the works of sin.

SENSUAL MUSIC

.

Or take the area of music.

.

Most Christians have no problem understanding that the sensual music of the world, is not from God.

.

But replace the secular lyrics with some quasi-Christian lyrics, and many Christians will likewise be fooled. And many Christians do not realize that music is a language too! Yes, music can send out its own message, without any lyrics whatsoever! Music can be very seductive, without any lyrics!

“PHILOSOPHY & VAIN DECEIT”

.

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Colossians 2:8

.

Or take the world of psychology.

.

Many dedicated Christians are deceived into thinking that psychology is a wonderful thing, in spite of so many unbiblical aspects about psychology! For one thing, the great fundamental basis of psychology is, that it presumes to understand the human mind, when the Bible clearly reveals that…

.

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

.

Now, how in the world can we expect a mere human to understand the human mind, when the Bible tells us that such a task is impossible!?

.

And one other aspect is that psychology almost completely denies the spiritual battle between good and evil which goes on in every man’s mind.

.

But just look at how many Christians run to a psychologist, instead of running to our Bibles for wise counsel!

A CASUALTY OF THE FREE-WILL GOSPEL

.

Now it is probably true that such deceptions are due in part by our acceptance of the so-http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jacobus_Arminius,_by_Hieronymus_van_der_Mij.jpgcalled, “Free-Will Gospel”. This is the idea that mere humans have the innate ability to choose to serve Christ. Of course this, “Grace + Works Gospel” is based on the idea that there exists a little bit of goodness in Mankind! And so, this “Free-Will gospel” believes that some men can choose Christ by their own volition, while others simply do not have what it takes!

.

Of course, this crazy notion of Jacobus Arminius is sheer madness, since the Bible clearly reveals… “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Romans 3:10-12 (To read entire quote, click here… Romans 3:10-18)

“FALLEN FROM GRACE!”

Galatians 5:4

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

And as a result of this false notion, that there exists some goodness in this kingdom ofSatan in which we live, we foolishly and naively walk right into Satan’s trap!

.

We rush headlong into forbidden areas of life’s arena in which angels fear to tread! And as a result, we are taken into a snare that only some will ever escape, while the rest will be brought into perdition and destruction!

TIME TO GET ON-BOARD

.

Well, the Good News in all this is, that the door of Salvation is still ajar! Yes, all mgospel shipay get into the Ark while mercy’s door remains open! This is the Ark of Salvation which has been waiting to take all up to Heaven for the past thousands of years.

.

So please make haste to get on-board this Gospel Ship! We know not how much time remains until those doors finally shut, and we begin our maiden-voyage up into the Heavenlies!

REVELATION 12 WOMAN & NARROW GATE STARS

.

Winter Constellations in West

.

This most amazing phenomenon is seen throughout the winter. Although it can be observed most of the winter, it is seen best when it is the western part of the sky, at winter’s end (The end of winter being the final scene of this heavenly Gospel story). Orion , the Dragon, and the Glorious White Horse are beginning to descend into the western horizon (sketch to right is Winter Constellations descending into western horizon. This can actually be seen as early as December, in the pre-dawn hours).

.

And at this point it is apparent that the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation  is veering toward the two bright stars, known as Castor and Pollux (sketch to left). But the Wide Gate Stars are composed of the two brightest stars of the Auriga Constellation, known as the star, Capella, and the star, Menkalinan. The two stars, Castor and Pollux, make up the concept of the Orion’s Narrow Gate Stars.

Revelation 12 Woman & Orion's Gate & Wide Gate.

This can even be observed into June in the western sky (for a short time just after dark). While a dark night is best for seeing the Woman Constellation, the 4 stars which comprise the Narrow Gate/Wide Gate Stars can be seen even under mediocre conditions. It begins with the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12 Constellation (AKA Ursa Major) going towards these two doors.

.

The sketch to left shows, the two doors are each composed of two bright stars. The two bright stars that comprise the Narrow Gate are the two brightest stars of the Orion the Reaper’s sickle. The two stars that comprise the ‘Wide Gate’ Stars are the two brightest stars of the wave of water that comes out of the Dragon Constellation’s mouth (for explanation of “Wave of Water”, just click here). The stars that make up the ‘Narrow Gate’ are about half the width of the Wide Gate (see sketch to right).

Editor’s note: These sketches on this page are merely sketches. The stars are not in their exact place. However, they are close enough to find them in the night sky. But as with most stars, it takes persistence to finally locate them.
