Commentary By: Gordon King
Do not be deceived! This is a warning given to us in scripture over and over again my friends, even by Jesus Christ Himself!
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
“Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.”
“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. “
1 Corinthians 3:18
“Let no one deceive himself. If anyone thinks that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise.”
“And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.“
“Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.”
“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”
Deception plays a key role in the end times, and bible prophecy warns us of coming deceptions. Jesus warns us not once, not twice, but several times in Matthew 24 about deception in the end times. He did this over and over again to emphasize the importance of this issue because He knew just how bad it would be!
The apostle Paul warned us in 2 Timothy 3 that evil men will rise up in the last days growing worse and worse.
2 Timothy 3:13
“But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.”
And don’t we hear that now from the Left? We are being deceived with empty words, being led astray, being told things that just aren’t true! We are being deceived into believing many things, deceived into believing that if we choose a certain candidate for President of the United States that everything will be fine, that if we mask up then the Chinese Corona Virus will somehow vanish away, that if we lock down then all will be well, that if we follow the science then Covid-19 will disappear.
We are being told that global warming will be the end of us if we don’t unite as one to fight against it, that if we don’t unite then Covid-19 will destroy us. We are then led to believe that the Elite of this world have all of the answers, that their way is the best way, that if we just listen to and follow them that the world would be a better place, a Utopia!
There is a push towards a New World Order, a One World Government, a push towards a world Utopia. This push is part of the agenda of the Left, it is a wicked and evil scheme my friends, a scheme derived from the evil one, Satan! Those of this world are seeking to destroy us, they seek to steal, kill, and destroy, we see it taking place right now in the streets of America.
And not only do we see it taking place in the streets of America but also in the churches of America! So many in the church have been led astray, they have bought into the lies and deception of the wicked one, following the doctrines of demons.
There is a great apostasy taking place in the church today, an apostasy away from the truth, from the truth given to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is about life not death, His is to save the lost and to preserve life especially the life of the innocent, the unborn! Life begins at conception and I would argue even before that! I believe that the good Lord created our spirit before our physical conception in the womb.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
And if life is so precious to God, if God says that we should protect innocent life, then how can we in our right minds as believers support a President that supports abortion?!
“Keep far from a false charge, and do not kill the innocent and righteous, for I will not acquit the wicked.”
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.”
“These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
17 A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
18 A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
19 A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.”
“You shall not murder.”
“They sacrificed their sons
and their daughters to the demons;
38 they poured out innocent blood,
the blood of their sons and daughters,
whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan,
and the land was polluted with blood.”
Scripture is very clear that we should not sacrifice our children, that we should not murder, that life begins at conception, that life is precious to God, especially innocent life! Abortion is the sacrificing of our children, it is murder of the innocent.
We are also warned that in the last days there would be a great apostasy of the church taking place, that people would turn from the truth and believe fables and lies.
2 Thessalonians 2:3
“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,”
“who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.”
2 Timothy 4:3-4
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.”
The world is full of deception, it cannot be avoided, it sits around every corner waiting to deceive, and with the advent of modern technology it becomes even worse. We are being fed lies on a daily basis, and when evil enters the church then it can easily overtake many, those that do not read, study, and understand the word of God!
Beware my friends, Satan is out to steal, kill, and destroy, he is walking around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
