Deception in Today's Worldly Church
Deception in Today's Worldly Church
by David Brenneman
Great deception leads the way into the last days. This too is a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy.
People today are being mislead in droves because those types of "megga-churches" are growing at the behest of Satan and his minions.
2 Corinthians 4:4 NASB "in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they will not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."
"For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, slanderers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness although they have denied its power; avoid such people as these." 2 Timothy 3:2-5 NASB.
This description is of people in a so-called church.
I have personally shaken hands with a demon possessed "leader" of a "church" that was in Columbus, Ohio. I can categorically state that these types of infiltration by the enemy of God does exist.
I know of others who, through a counseling session, discovered demons present in a person.
Satan's not, nor ever has been, in Hell.
He knows the truth of God, that Hell is a sentence of God for those destined to be sent there. There are no "powers of Hell" that even so many "Christian" songs refer to that Satan's minions or himself uses. Hell is a place only. A place of torment and pain for those who either refused salvation in Christ Jesus or were sent there as demons by God's judgment.
The deception runs deep. People being taught gently that Jesus is optional or isn't required. That feeling good about yourself is good enough. That you can find many ways to get to Heaven.
Bibles are edited or not used at all, because they offend people. Well yeah the Bible is going to be offensive to someone bent on living in sin. They want to continue in their sin yet don't want to hear about the consequences of that sin.
The deceiver that I shook hands with was going to preach that day. We didn't stay, we left soon after the service began. To quote Paul we didn't even give them an hour.
Demons are behind what evil people are doing enmass. Any man-made tool can be manipulated into something of mass destruction. A screwdriver, properly placed, will cause the same destruction as a gun.
What needs to change isn't laws or manufacturers. It's the hearts of men and women.
What I was lead to write recently has to do with today might be the day. Months ago I was lead to coin the phrase "Rapture Ready".
People throughout this world flock to so-called churches who will indeed still be here after the Rapture of the Church.
People who have been groomed by demons to accept what false teachers who will spring up even more after the Rapture will say. These people will believe the New World Order as ordained by the Antichrist. They will have been groomed to worship him.
It's not crazy speak. These types of teachings have existed since the beginning of the Church. In today's world people are desperate for peace and rest. Desperate for acceptance of who they have created themselves to be. They reject the God of Peace to embrace the lies of the god of this world.
Apathy towards the things that are right and true defines our world. Truth has become subjective. Defined by those with the money and power.
Busyness is a weapon these days against the things that make for a Godly life. Keep people so busy "enjoying" life or even under "conviction" that if they don't do this or that their status as a good parent or good this or that is called into question.
Information overload is a key element of that weapon of busyness. Keep people so overwhelmed emotionally and intellectually they have no time to realize the truth of God's message of the Gospel.
People lead to believe that taking the rights of others away will make them feel safer, even if the other person has done nothing wrong to warrant such a thing.
Deception is great. The insane thing is in the face of real, provable, absolute truth, people are in denial of it. That beating something against a wall WILL effect change.
The only real truth that has stood the test of time is the Bible, God's Holy Word.
Salvation is through no other. As it says here: Acts 4:12 NASB "And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among mankind by which we must be saved.”
Consider as well Romans 1:25 NASB "For they exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen." That is an apt depiction at the beginning of the Church that is prevalent today.
Seek only Bible believing, Bible preaching churches. Seek only to be taught by men of God who are proven be just that. The letters to Timothy are filled with what you should expect in church leaders and leadership. Of the proof that a Pastor\Elder\Teacher is a man, not a woman. The original language speaks to that truth. Satan's filling the minds of people with the idea that women can be preachers when God's Word says otherwise. So what does the worldly church do? Remove such things from the Bible. Or they provide excuses to explain away their stand.
If you have not a Bible, get one. If indeed you haven't received salvation in Christ Jesus as of yet, that book will be banned after the Rapture.
A recent book by Dr. David Jeremiah is called "After the Rapture". It's a must read for those yet undecided and those who are saved who are wondering about what happens afterwards.
My Dear Reader, the offer of salvation in Jesus Christ, the One True God, in this time in which we live, is drawing to a close. People will be saved after the Rapture but life will be perilous for them. People decry their views on guns yet in that 7 year Tribulation beheadings will be the norm.
Please do not wait if you are in one of those false churches. Get out. Get to one that really preaches and teaches the whole counsel of God. The deception is only going to grow deeper. Jesus Himself wondered if He would find the faith when He returns. I look around now and wonder that myself.
