Commentary by: Gordon King
The world is full of evil and deception. Of lies upon lies, hatred, malevolence and violence. This evil is increasing and will not stop until the second coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Do not be deceived, do not be led astray. Evil is being replaced by good, and good by evil. Things are not as they appear to be. It can be easy to get caught up in sinister schemes and ideas.
Much of the world today is weary, sleeping, and off guard. They believe what they read, what they see on television, and what the government tells them is fact. There is much deception in society, much that is not being told.
If we are to see the truth and know the truth, then we must be filled with the Holy Spirit of God. He gives believers discernment and the wisdom of God. However, there are those Christians who are not walking close to God, they too may be deceived.
As we approach the end, these lies and deceptions shall be uncovered and brought into the light. However, for many it will be too late. They will still not be able to discern the truth from a lie. They shall see evil as good, and good as evil.
Only the righteous, through the blood of Jesus Christ, will be able to discern the truth. Only the righteous will be able to discern the spirits. That’s why it is so vitally important to live for Christ, and with Christ in these last days!
Evil spirits are here now, they are increasing in strength and in numbers. They are wreaking havoc throughout the earth. Their plan is a sinister one. To make a mockery of everything God has created. To stop as many people from accepting God as possible. To destroy God’s creations, and for Satan himself to become god. To blasphemy against God and His Holy Spirit.
Satan knows that his time is short. He knows that he must work hard and fast. Satan is not stupid, he was one of the highest angels in heaven when God created him. He has many strengths and powers. He is smart, cunning, strong and brave. He is also very evil, deceptive, hateful, and wicked.
Satan knows God, fears God, and hates God. He could have repented to God, but did not. Instead, he chose to continue to rebel against God. And here we are today. Being deceived by the “Great Deceiver”.
Satan and his demons are possessing many people. They are spreading their hatred around the world through war, violence, evil, murder, heinous acts, theft, and lies. Much of what we see happening including abortion, sexual immorality, domestic violence, theft, murder, crime, cannibalism, war, protests, riots, false religion, apostasy, persecution, and government coercion is the work of Satan. These will increase in intensity and frequency. The lies that we are being fed will increase in intensity and frequency. The persecution of Christians will also intensify.
Our time is short, the end is coming. Do not be deceived! Make sure that you are right with God. Walk close to Him daily. Worship Him and Give Him the praise and the thanks that He deserves.
