The Strong Delusion of God
The Strong Delusion is coming; the strong delusion
will be sent by God, and the strong delusion will be directed not only at
those of the world that are lost in their sins, but specifically at all
lukewarm, undecided, and corrupt Christians…
2Thesalonians 2:11: And for this cause God shall send
them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
2Thesalonians 2:12: That they all might be damned who
believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Webster’s definition of “unrighteous”:
evil, guilty, immoral, unholy, unjust, sinful,
Author's note: As I write this to you, I'm trying to be
succinct, but my fear for you and for others,
as well as for myself, is great
and I may reiterate often in an attempt to wake us all from our spiritual
Romans 13:11 And that,
knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is
our salvation nearer than when we believed.
My sole purpose in writing to you is to bear witness of the seriousness of
this issue. We must not take our salvation for granted, but should work it
out before God in fear and trembling.
Philippians 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have
always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence,
work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Not all will be saved that claim to be Christians.
Consider: Are you secure in your walk with the
Lord or are you basing your trust of your salvation in corrupted Biblical
teaching under a false prophet? Do you have a personal relationship with
Jesus, or are you dependent upon your pastor or priest to get you into
Christ has stated that many will come before His Throne of Judgment
believing they were saved, even holding up that they had cast out demons and
healed the sick, all in His name, yet He will deliver to them the most
feared of all rebukes possible; “I NEVER knew you, depart from me”.
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your
name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you
that work iniquity.
Why would God send a Strong Delusion upon the
Because lost (unsaved) people of the earth including those that claim to be
Christians “believed not the truth, but had pleasure
in unrighteousness.” II Thessalonians 2:7-12
God will send the strong delusion on those among us that are guilty of not
accepting the truth of His Holy Word found within the Old and New Testament
Bible. Their guilt also lies in their accepting and following after the
unrighteous teachings perpetrated by false prophets within the Christian
These false prophets are controlled by seducing spirits; and while working
under the guise of end times preachers, pastors, teachers, elders, and
church laymen they are preaching, teaching and promoting doctrines of
1st Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that
in the latter times some (Christians)
shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing
spirits, and doctrines of devils;
To clarify; the strong delusion will not be sent by God solely because of
the actions of the false prophets, or due only to the blasphemous content of
their false teachings, but also the strong delusion will be sent upon those
that claim to be Christian and are proven apostate due to their acceptance
of ungodly teaching. The Strong Delusion will be sent upon the false
teachers and those that believe them.
Why will lukewarm Christians be included in
the strong delusion curse from God?
Those that claim to be Christians have been given much in the teaching
and knowledge of God.
Luke 12:48 For unto whomsoever much is given, of him
shall be much required..
Lukewarm and undecided Christians are denying
the deity of Christ by not bowing to His authority in all issues of life.
They are not obeying the teachings of God in His Holy Word, but instead are
following after false prophets that teach a new and corrupted gospel.
Does God's Word speak to the issue of undecided and lukewarm Christians?
Yes, Jesus states He will be disgusted with
lukewarm Christians to the degree He will be nauseated by their presence.
I know your works, that you art neither cold nor hot...
Revelation 3:16 So
then because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out
of my mouth.
Because you say, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of
nothing; and know not that you art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and
blind, and naked.
Can Christians that profess to know the Holy God of the Bible be lost due to
their wrong interpretation of scripture?
Yes. God has only one true interpretive meaning
in His Holy Word. It cannot be rightfully interpreted and taught by false
prophets that are under the influence of seducing spirits, nor can it be
correctly espoused by Christians that have no personal walk or relationship
Titus 1:16 They profess that they know God;
but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto
every good work reprobate.
Is there punishment for
Christians that do not OBEY the gospel of Jesus Christ?
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be
revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2Thessalonians 1:8 In
flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not
the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
Why will atheists, those that say they do not believe in God, be cursed?
There is no denying God's existence, for everything seen and unseen speaks
of the majesty of His existence through His Creation. Those that deny that
God exists do so solely in rebellion and refusal to accept His Kingship.
They choose to deny their true King rightful authority over their lives.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly
seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power
and Godhead; so that they are without excuse...
Luke 12:9 But he
that denies me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
What is the "LIE" that God's Strong Delusion will cause people to
First recognize that the "lie" is NOT a lie spoken or sent by God. Also,
do not confuse the "lie" with the "strong delusion", they are two entirely
different things, however, combined they will become a curse on the lost and
also on the lukewarm in the Christian churches.
The false doctrine being taught within the Christian churches today is
2Thesalonians 2:11: And for this cause God shall
send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
The "strong delusion" is God's curse upon both those that teach the false
doctrine lie and those that believe the false doctrine lie.
The Warning of Jesus
Jesus has warned emphatically that God will be so displeased with people
during the last days that He will cause them to believe a lie in order that
they may be cursed.
Consider: Is God speaking of sending a strong delusion on only those that
are lost due to their having not accepted Jesus as their Messiah or is this
warning for all people, including lukewarm Christians?
Some of you may think the strong delusion is meant only for unbelievers and
will not effect "Christians". If that is the case, then answer this; why
would God need another (additional) reason to condemn those that are already
condemned due to their not accepting His only begotten Son?
"He that believes in Him
is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already,
because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John
Are there really False Prophets teaching a 'lie" within the end-time
Yes, so much so that Jesus made a point of warning the disciples (and
us) regarding them.
When speaking of false prophets, Jesus was not referring to the common
deceptions of the world that would mislead the lost through out history. He
was specifically warning His Christian disciples, and us as His Christian
followers, to beware of False Prophets within the Christian church
Seducers versus persecutors:
Jesus was warning us that seducers in
our midst are of much more danger to the church (then and now) than are the
open and obvious persecutors. Jesus foresaw the false teachers (seducers)
that would be embedded within our Christian churches today.
Who are the seducers within the Christian church today?
The seducers in the Christian church today are those that have gained
good reputation, perhaps through pseudo Biblical teachings, but afterward,
having betrayed the Holy Word of Jesus entrusted to them, have turned away
from the Truth entirely. Under the prompting of evil spirits these seducers
have now begun teaching heresy and error compounded; of which Jesus said are
"doctrines of devils". Ignoring the clear scriptural warning of being cursed
for adding to or taking away from God's Holy Word, today's false prophets
are foolishly, and to their own eternal destruction, teaching a new and
Stop for a moment and consider this; Do you realize that God's Word
says there WILL be Christians leaving the true teaching of God and accepting
the teaching of evil spirits. If the dawning reality of that is not enough
to make you fall on your knees pleading God's mercy in fear of this becoming
your own fate, now consider that God also says that "doctrines of devils"
will be taught in the end time Christian churches? Is your Church allowing
doctrines of devils to be taught?
A belief (or system of beliefs) accepted as
authoritative by some
Devils: Spirits of evil and adversaries of God; tempters of mankind;
masters of Hell
Who are those that are teaching the
Doctrines of Devils being taught in Christian churches today?
The seducing laymen, teachers, prophets, elders, deacons, and pastors
that have compromised, omitted, changed, added to, and intentionally wrongly
interpreted the Word of God to accommodate the cultural standards and
desires of the lost people of today are teaching False Doctrines that God
calls Doctrines of Devils.
Do you know what is considered to be a doctrine of a devil according to
Examples given of doctrines of devils being taught in today's
churches include (but certainly are not limited to) the following;
Where as God’s Word calls an evil act done by man as being sin, false
prophets within today's Christian churches call this same sin good and
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and
good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness...
Where as God states that He is God and there is no other god beside Him. The
false prophets today teach that we are ALL gods.
Isaiah 44:6 Thus says the LORD the King of Israel, and
his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and
beside me there is no God.
Where as God says that if we pray we shall receive that which is in His
Will, these seducing false prophets now teach that we are capable of
receiving anything we desire regardless of God’s will, merely through our
OWN will power.
1John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in
him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he hears us:
Where as God states that we are to seek first the kingdom of heaven and then
all things needed for our care on earth will be given to us. The seducers
among us teach that we should first seek after material gain, wealth, and
prosperity, and of course give them a good share of it.
1Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of
all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the
faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Where as Christ said that no man can come to the Father, but through Him,
and that God draws mankind through Jesus that we may be purified of our sins
before approaching God. Today’s seducers teach that there are many ways to
John 6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father
which has sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
Where as God demands that we honor and worship Him and Him only, the
seducers in the Christian churches today demand that we honor and even
worship them and our fellow man instead.
Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they
Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie,
and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator
Where as God says that effeminate and homosexual men are an abomination to
Him, many of today's ministers teach that homosexuals and effeminates are
NOT sinning and that God will go against His own Word and bless them anyway
because He is a "God of Love'.
1Corinthians 6:9-10 Know you not that the unrighteous
shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators,
nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor
revilers, nor extortionists, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Leviticus 20:13 If
a man also lie with mankind, as he lies with a woman, both of them have
committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood
shall be upon them.
Jesus speaking of the signs and wonders that will deceive the end times
"Even him (anti-Christ), who’s coming is after
the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders"
Christ Jesus warned us in Mathew 24 that the
“him” that shall rise up is the anti-Christ,
and will do so with direct empowerment from Satan, and will show great signs
and lying wonders that will be so grand and spectacular as to fool many.
The great signs and wonders being done by the false prophets are not true
miracles, but are instead, “LYING wonders empowered by Satan, and are NOT
miracles empowered by God.
These false prophets take advantage of men’s lack of knowledge regarding
God’s Holy Word.
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of
knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you,
that you shall be no priest to me: seeing you have forgotten the law of your
God, I will also forget your children.
Surely, if men had read God’s warnings in the Bible they would recognize
these false prophets spoken of in end time’s prophecies. But, sadly, yet it
is their due; they are capable of being deceived by falsehood, trickery,
magic, lies, their own arrogance, and other deceptions sent on the world by
Satan through seducing spirits.
For us as true Christians, that is, those of us whom have asked with a
broken and contrite heart for God to forgive us in the name of Jesus, we
must also pray that God would protect and keep us from the great lie that
Satan is now inflicting on the world. Pray that our God would not send the
strong delusion upon us.
Will lukewarm Christians accept the anti-Christ as being Jesus? Yes.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs,
and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that,
if possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them
that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that
they might be saved."
Because they did not receive the love of the TRUTH; the TRUTH being that
Jesus is the ONLY way to God and is the true Savior, Lord, King, and Ruler
over all creation here on earth, God is sending a Strong Delusion to curse
them in order that those that accept the lie shall remain in their sins.
A Clear Warning
If you are lost in your sins without the freely offered salvation of Jesus
at the time of the rise of anti-Christ you will remain lost. If you are a
lukewarm, undecided, corrupt Christian that has not accepted Jesus Christ as
your ONLY means of forgiveness before God, then you will receive the strong
delusion from God Himself and be cursed.
God has given you the opportunity to repent today; if you refuse you will
remain in your sins when the anti-Christ comes. If you believe you will
recognize the anti-Christ and will not accept him as the false messiah,
God’s Word says otherwise. God states clearly that because they would not
believe the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness, HE WILL cause them
to believe the lie.
Never before in the history of the world has there been a time of prophetic
fulfillment such as this. Today all of the final prophecies of Bible
Scripture are coming to complete fulfillment quickly and with an exactness
of accuracy that is astounding. As a Holy Spirit filled Christian with “eyes
to see and ears to hear”, I am in awe at the exponential rapidity toward
completion in which God is bringing about these promised end time events.
It is absolutely imperative that you accept Christ as your Savior, your
Lord, your King, and your Ruler now. Do not make the mistake to think you
will be “raptured” out of the world before the tribulation, or that you can
wait until tribulation begins and then decide to bow your knee to Jesus as
King. For those of you that are undecided (lukewarm), make up your mind
quickly; repent of your sins before God almighty now, today, and do not wait
for tomorrow. God will soon send a strong delusion upon the people of this
world. Are you foolish enough to think that God will fail to do that which
He has promised?
Prepare yourself to not be deceived; follow the
teaching of God's Holy Word written in the Old and New Testament Bibles.
Read His Word for yourself and pray that He would show you His truth as He
meant it to be. Turn away from the lying false prophets that are within many
of the corrupt churches today. Seek God our Creator through Christ Jesus and
Christ Jesus alone. Do not seek after wealth, materialism, and prosperity.
Seek God in truth and spirit. Do not seek after power, self worship, and
attention to yourself. Do not seek self gratification of perverse and
ungodly desires by living your life vicariously through actors, musicians,
the wealthy, sports icons, politicians, or your pastor. Hold no man or
woman up as being worthy of your attention-turned-worship. Heed the Word of
God Almighty ONLY.
Old Testament prophecy of God's wrath
Isaiah 66:4 I also will choose their
delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called,
none did answer; when I spoke, they did not hear: but they did evil before
mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
May God have mercy on us all.
