Strong Delusion – Intro

Wickedness and stupidity are contagious. If you need evidence, just look around you. Read your local newspaper. Watch television. Go to the movies. You’ll see evidence for real evil and drooling idiocy, everywhere. But, there is something stronger coming, something that God will cause.

It’s called a Strong Delusion, and it’s a phrase that is used only once in the KJV. And, it specifically refers to the Last Days. And, I have some questions.

WHEN will this strong delusion come?

WHAT will it be?

HOW will it arrive?

…and…

DO we see it now?

I’m not sure that we can answer all these questions, but maybe we can shed some light on them.

I believe in censorship.

I know that this might be shocking to some of you, so let me clarify that I do NOT believe that governments should be given the power to censor information. Nor should objective fact ever be censored. TRUTH should never EVER be censored. But, I strongly believe that lies should be, or talked about in a way that helps everyone understand how untruthful a lie is. And, I have God on my side, when I talk about censorship.

Here are a few examples:

And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

 – Exodus 23:13

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

 – Ephesians 5:12

Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

 – Titus 1:11

THAT is CENSORSHIP. And, I exercise it in the comment section, if I do not have the time or energy to point it out correct it – at least for those who speak outright heresy. No one has the right to speak lies. EVER.

No one.

Not me.

Not you.

Not anyone.

Why?

We’re Stupid

Because you and me… we …are stupid. I know that this is a hard concept for some to grasp, but we really are pretty stupid. Some of us are pretty AND stupid, but at my age, I must settle for merely being pretty stupid. And, the most stupid people are too dumb to realize that they are stupid. It takes at least SOME intelligence to see how dumb you are.

Please understand that when Jesus referred to us as sheep, it wasn’t because He thought highly of our intelligence. Sheep are wonderful creatures, and I’ve had a chance to watch them. But, they are dumber than a box of rocks and a bag of hammers. And, they will energetically, with enthusiasm, do the dumbest things. So, it’s a good thing that God doesn’t require an intelligence test for admission into The Kingdom.

We are His sheep, and we’re stupid.

(but He loves us anyway)

And, if you are smart enough to know that you are stupid, then you need to follow the One who is not – and who truly wishes the best for you. And, if you haven’t figured it out yet, there is only one person who ever walked the Earth, who was never stupid and who can be trusted completely.

That person is Jesus Christ. No one else can lead us to safety. No one else can be trusted to always give us what we need. And yes, the word is ALWAYS.

Unfortunately, the Father of Lies – Satan – loves to creep up on us and whisper in our ears, “Hey, would you like to be smart?” I’ve spent a lifetime watching him and his foul minions do that to many, many people. We all want to be smart. All of us. But, history proves that we are physically unable to be smart, even though we want to be.

In fact, the best way to BE smart, is to accept that you ARE stupid. Once you’ve come to that conclusion, you are ready to be guided by God. In fact, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you were implicitly and explicitly admitting that you were unable to save yourself or cleanse yourself from sin. Among other things you were basically admitting that you were stupid.

Oh, how easy it is to forget how stupid we are.

I Include Myself Completely

And yes, I include myself in this. There have been many times – far too many times – when I forgot this. But, God is merciful and rescued me from my own stupidity. And, if you ever see me wince for no apparent reason, it’s often because a memory of past foolishness reached out and tapped me on the shoulder.

Okay, so you get it. You’re stupid. I’m stupid. We’re all stupid. And you accept that fact, or you would have stopped reading this article a long time ago.

So, what does being stupid have to do with this Strong Delusion?

Patience, grasshopper.

Let me tell you a very, very short story.

A Short Story

I was doing a backup of the files on my computer, and ran across some wedding pictures. Our wedding pictures. And, I showed them to Mrs. Little, and I told her that the whole thing was pretty much a blur.

She asked whether this was because I was nervous.

I said, “Absolutely NOT!”

Why?

Because I knew how valuable and unique this woman was and is. And, I did NOT want her getting away. No way. No how. I had found someone special, and I wanted to get married before she figured out how bad an idea this was.

I wasn’t nervous. I was on a mission.

Mission accomplished.

Of course, getting married is the easy part. STAYING married is much more of a challenge. And, I’m on a mission to make sure that this special woman still wants to stay married to me. So far, so good.

What does this Little story have to do with our topic of a Strong Delusion?

Well, think of it like this. When I found the woman who would one day be Mrs. Little, I did everything that I possibly could to make sure that she married me and wanted to stay married to me. She was/is absolutely priceless. Only God is more valuable, in my mind and heart. So, I grabbed her and didn’t let go.

That’s called love.

It doesn’t always feel like love. And, you might even call it an obsession. It’s not like I’m an expert on marriage, but Mrs. Little isn’t complaining. So, I must be doing something right.

Love Of The Truth

The same goes for the Truth. With a capital T.

Do you love the Truth?

You did, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. That wasn’t some small decision. If anything, it was far, far more life-changing than marrying the most fantastic woman on the planet. Nothing is as life-changing as devoting your life to Christ.

Nothing.

THAT is LOVE.

However, you cannot say that you truly love Christ, if you do not love what He says. That also applies to WHO He is, WHY He is and WHAT He is. And, all of the Bible – all of it – are His words, via the Holy Spirit and the pen of those who wrote those words down. And, His Father gave us the Holy Spirit so that we can have The Truth – so that we can increase in The Truth.

We started out small, with the knowledge that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, that He came down to Earth, died and rose again so that we could have eternal life. It was the beginning of our journey of knowing The Truth.

The problem is that many have gotten lost in their journey. They made a turn, when they should have gone straight. They stumbled and fell of the path, off of the Narrow Way. And, I think that there are many of you who know of people who have done that.

A friend, who was a missionary to the Middle East, became an Atheist. Another, a friend of a friend, lost his way in Russia, after having planted many churches. One very good friend stumbled early in his walk, but God brought him back. And, I have a lot more friends who just stopped moving forward.

My friends who stopped moving forward haven’t forsaken the Narrow Way. They just stopped growing and making progress. Like some married couples, they forgot what and where their love was. And, to this day, they’re just sitting on the path of Truth, stagnating.

So, do you love the Truth?

Do you really?

I doubt that you would have gotten this far, if you didn’t, but I have to make sure. Far too many SAY that they love the truth, but can’t seem to offer proof, or even know what that is. And, this lies at the heart of why this Strong Delusion is coming.

The Strong Delusion From God

First of all, let me give you the verse where you can find it:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:11

Wait.

God?

God will send them a strong delusion?

Yes.

Not Satan.

God.

Whoa!

(and woe)

How is that even possible?

Isn’t SATAN the Father of Lies?

How can God send a delusion to ANYONE, let alone a STRONG Delusion?

Well the Bible says it, so we accept it. And, there are several places in the Bible where God does this, for the purposes of judgment.

Here’s an example:

And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left.

And the Lord said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.

And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade him.

And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.

 – 1 Kings 22:19-22

Poor Micaiah was the one giving this prophecy, and he didn’t want to because he knew that it wouldn’t be received and that he would suffer because of it.

Why did God send this lying spirit to lead King Ahab to die in battle?

Because Ahab sinned against God and led the northern tribes of Israel into sin. And, he might even have been drawing away a good king, Jehoshaphat. So, God sent a strong delusion, so that Ahab would be destroyed.

Because They Did Not Love The Truth

So, why the Strong Delusion mentioned by Paul in 2nd Thessalonians?

Well, the key lies in the verse above 2 Thessalonians 2:11 – actually the second half of it:

…because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:10b

That’s why I spent so much time talking about love. Someone (i.e., ‘they’) did not receive the love of the truth. They were offered the truth. They had the truth in their hands. It was – at a minimum – there for them to pick it up and hold onto it. But, they refused.

OUCH!

The question is… who is this ‘they’ in that verse?

It’s A Part Of The Last Days

Well, the first part of this chapter is a reaffirmation that the Resurrection and Rapture (i.e., the gathering) will not happen until after the Antichrist arrives. Paul goes on to say that something will stop blocking the arrival of the Wicked One, and he goes on to say:

And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10

By the way, this proves that the Church cannot be that ‘something’ that stands in the way, since the Body of Christ must still be around AFTER the Antichrist is revealed.

Now, does this tell us the identity of ‘them that perish’?

Well after Paul described the return of Jesus, the Resurrection and Rapture, he said this:

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:3 

Hmmmm… a falling away.

From what?

Well, it should be clear to all of you that we are speaking of The Truth. At the very least, it’s a falling away of those who have proclaimed themselves to be Christian, but did not receive a love of the truth. They had the truth, but they did not love it.

Not Every ‘Christian’ Goes To Heaven

I’m not sure if you remember this verse, but even those of us who do… well …we need a reminder:

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

 – Matthew 7:21

So, just because you SAY that you are a Christian, doesn’t mean that you are going to heaven. That should make all of us pause for a bit of introspection and ask ourselves if we are truly doing the will of God the Father. And, God only requires that we do our very best.

Are you?

If not, then expect to suffer a strong delusion. And, that’s really what we are talking about here. If you are not devoting all of your life, all of it, to serving the will of God, then you do not stand a chance of making it to heaven. I don’t want to get into a sermon on what it means to be ‘double minded’. You can read what the step brother of Jesus said about that in the Book of James.

The point is that we should probably assume that we are talking about false Christians – or, at least, double minded ones – who haven’t received a ‘love of the truth that they might be saved’. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have mistakes in what you believe to be true. We all have mistakes – myself, included.

Being Married To The Truth

What it means is that you must hold yourself to what the Bible actually says, and not what other people say. You MUST hold the truth as strongly as you can and compare everything that you hear, with that truth. If it disagrees with what the Bible actually says, it’s wrong. No exceptions.

When I got married, I had to flick a certain switch to the ‘off position’. It’s that switch labeled ‘women are attractive’, and it didn’t turn off automatically. Of course, mine had been in the ‘on position’ for twice as long as most people, so maybe I was more aware of the effort needed to make it turn off. Being married to Mrs. Little made that a fairly easy process.

The same goes with The Truth. It’s like being married. Once you have The Truth, you must no longer allow yourself to be attracted to any other thoughts or ideas that are not The Truth. Anything that disagrees with The Truth, MUST BE DISCARDED.

How many Christians actually live like that?

Unfortunately, not many.

You must be married to The Truth. It must be something that is more important than anything on this Earth, because God IS THE TRUTH. And no, we are NOT talking about dogma. We aren’t talking about what your pastor says, or what Dr. So-And-So said in his great commentary on Something-Or-Other. Truth is far more than that. And for us, the Bible actually defines what we can accept as truth.

So, think of this as a warning to those who think that they are Christian. Examine your life to see if you really love the Truth. I have friends who did not, and are no longer following Christ – good friends who seemed more Christian than anyone you know. So, please Please PLEASE love the Truth.

Many Strong Delusions

So, my operating interpretation is that this Strong Delusion is coming for Christians – or, at least to those who identify themselves as Christians. But…

…will it be limited to just those with a Christian identity?

I don’t think so. Of course, those outside the Body of Christ will always be vulnerable to strong delusions. History is full of people with all sorts of powerful delusions. In fact, just look around you. There are so many incredible delusions running around, that you would be excused for thinking that you’d fallen into some strange alternate reality.

There are black people who think that they are the Jews of the Old Testament.

There’s a Chinese woman who thinks that she’s the second coming of Christ.

A Vietnamese woman calls herself Supreme Master and has a TV channel blasting out her inane thoughts all over the world.

Hindus use cow poop as medicine.

Muslims murder millions upon millions of people in the name of peace.

Europeans think that socialism works.

Too many Americans think that the Earth is FLAT.

McDonalds got rid of the Quarter Pounder in Taiwan.

And, that last one has me steamed. Seriously, what were they thinking?

The point is that these profound delusions have been running around for a long time. And, there’s always someone cooking up a new one. And, when the new ones don’t work, they go back to old ones, like the one about the flat Earth.

Why?

‘cuz we’re stupid. But, I already told you that. And, it’s a sensitive subject, so let’s not talk about it too much.

Strong Christian Delusions?

The bigger question is about supposedly CHRISTIAN delusions, and whether this Strong Delusion will happen suddenly or gradually creep up on us.

So, what Christian Delusions are we talking about here?

When did they start?

Or, do we need to wait for them to start?

And, since the term Strong Delusion seems to be singular, we might want to think of WHICH of the delusions is the one that Paul is talking about.

Please jump in with your thoughts on this in the comment section. I value your input, since I cannot claim to know everything that there is to know on the subject, although taking the Quarter Pounder off the menu here must be a sign of bad things to come.

IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE…

Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.

And yes, these are pretty serious.

Barr – YouTube

I was wondering why Trump’s pick for Attorney General, William Barr, was sailing so smoothly through Congress. This is very, very bad.

William Barr is CIA. Deep, deep CIA. And, this is proof. And, it looks like Trump has picked one of the biggest swamp creature in Washington. He is deeply connected to EVERYTHING that is evil in Washington. Deeply connected.

Did Trump know that William Barr is as evil as he seems to be?

Probably not. But, only probably.

America is finished. Completely. Utterly.

As a part of His judgment upon America, God is prospering the designs of America’s enemies.

William Barr Update – YouTube

Here’s an update and correction, along with disappointing news that Bill Still is taking Kevin Shipp to task for criticizing the William Barr appointment.

So, let’s see what Bill has to say…

2534, Former CIA Guy, Kevin Shipp, Knocks Bill Barr, 2534 – YouTube

Okay, here’s that video from Bill Still. Sorry Bill, but you are blind to the role of the CIA in the destruction of America. And, while it is true that Kevin Shipp made some mistakes in his presentation… mistakes that he admits …Kevin Shipp is right about the CIA.

Furthermore, information has come to light from other sources about Operation Phoenix, or The Phoenix Program. According to what we know, how it was managed, and the evil that they were doing… forty thousand murders is a reasonable figure.

Sorry Bill, but you have a blind side, when it comes to the CIA. That organization is evil, personified. And, I’m sorry that Bill is blind to this.

Bill is a good man, but his ignorance has tainted his viewpoint.

Furthermore, I have a lot of respect of Kevin Shipp for not blasting Bill for the harsh words that he used. Kevin has done well in not ‘fighting fire with fire’.

Well done, Kevin.

I will still use Bill’s commentary and some of his coverage, but this shows that Bill has quite a few blind spots.

The Generation that Will Save the World – International Man

I can hardly believe what I’m about to tell you, but here it is:

Eighty-four percent of millennials admit that they don’t know how to change a light bulb.

If the light burns out, they literally do not know how to get it to work again. And, I am absolutely amazed at this.

The writer of this piece then goes on to analyze what kind of people it would take to dig out of the mess that we are about to get into. He looks at other examples of other collapses. And then, he looks back at the US and says this:

Concurrently, in the US, Canada and Europe, the generation that will be tasked with digging their countries out of depression will be the millennials. They will fail utterly at their task and they won’t reprogramme their brains to understand what’s necessary, any more than the last two generations of Cubans have. The task will fall to the next generation. It will be their children who take on the task and rebuild.

What this means is that the Greater Depression will not be brief. A recovery is likely to take twenty-five years, since another generation after the millennials will need to mature before a recovery can be effected.

And during that time, those jurisdictions will be quite a bit less than ideal as places of domicile.

If you are smart, you will get as far away from other millennials as you can. If you are a millennial, you need to learn the skills necessary to survive and thrive, when it all falls apart.

Thankfully, I live in a country that understands this. Taiwan’s people still remember the tough times, so they’ll get through what’s coming. At least, most of them.

But, the US? Canada? Europe?

U.S. SHALE OIL INDUSTRY: Not In The Business To Make Money, But To Take Money – SRSrocco Report

I posted a video last week titled…

Art Berman: Exposing The False Promise of Shale Oil

Well Steve St. Angelo saw the same video and reported on it. And, here are the first three paragraphs of his article:

The U.S. Shale Oil Industry has been a financial trainwreck since day one. And, with nearly $300 billion in public and private debt racked up by the shale industry since its inception, that hasn’t stopped investors from throwing good money after bad to continue the biggest energy Ponzi scheme in history.

Unfortunately, the worst is still yet to come because the industry hasn’t provided the market with analysis on what happens to the shale oil companies and investors holding their debt when production finally peaks forever. I don’t believe the market has any idea just how quickly and violently the U.S. Shale Oil Industry could implode. Get ready for the Sun to Set on the U.S. Shale Oil Industry.

Veteran oil analyst, Art Berman, mentioned in his interview on Peak Prosperity that he believes the oil industry “IS DONE.” He also explains why the U.S. Shale Industry is not in the business of making money, but rather, taking money. I highly recommend “ALL,” my followers to listen to the interview below as it confirms the dire energy predicament we face:

If you haven’t seen that video, you need to. It’s in the link.

Peak Oil is a civilization destroying event, and it’s already here, even though we do not feel it yet. But, we will. And, it will shake the world.

Will you be ready for this?

Kunstler: America’s “All Is Lost” Moment Looms | Zero Hedge

Jame Kunstler has hit the nail squarely on the head. He is predicting an even greater Depression than the one that we had in the 1930s – where starvation killed almost 8 million Americans. Only this time, America has twice the population and an incoming Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) that will be far, far worse than the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.

And, most of those who died, died while food was being thrown away to keep prices from going lower.

What will happen when the debt market implodes and debt-fueled oil production collapses?

Who will pay the truckers to haul the food to the cities?

Who will give the farmers the fuel to plant their crops? Especially for the crops that will be decimated by cold, as the GSM gathers force.

Who will feed the inner cities, when the current version of Food Stamps finally dies?

No one will. Americans will do like they did during the Great Depression:

Die by the millions.

In this case, it will be in the tens of millions.

Here are three paragraphs from this article that should make you shudder:

Note: the growth predicament is hugely misunderstood in this land, because the shale oil “miracle” was such a dazzling stunt. America is now producing above 12 million barrels of oil a day, two million higher than what was thought to be the all-time peak of 10 million a day in 1970. That is extraordinary indeed. We are the world’s leader in oil production now, ahead of Saudi Arabia and the wicked Russian bear. What most Americans don’t know is that this stunning feat was accomplished with hundreds of billions of dollars in borrowed money (debt) that will never be paid back.

The collateral for all that money was the conviction that there was a lot of money to be made in shale oil. But the shale oil industry has had a negative cash flow since it started around 2005. So, we’ve demonstrated that you can produce a lot of something at a big loss for a while, until you can’t. And the moment is approaching when there will be no more loans for the shale oil industry and then, voila, no more shale oil. And the USA will have a whole lot less of its primary energy “input” to the economy. We’ll be back to 2008. The turnaround will be fast and shocking and the American public will feel swindled. And having been already swindled out of all the other comforts and conveniences of what used to be modern life — a job, a home, a car — they will be even more supremely pissed off.

Enter stage left, the first woman president. Take your pick: Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand — with AOC as Speaker of the House! The new “Eleanor” will out-do Franklin Roosevelt in “innovative” economic policy. Only this time it won’t be jolly corps of brawny men marching off with pick-axes and shovels to carve trails through the national parks. It will be an orgy of collectivization, led by a gender-fluid army of commissars in an American sequel to the classic film Battleship Potemkin. Madam President will nationalize everything that’s not fastened down with square-head decking screws. Then the show trials will commence, first with the hated One Percenters going to the firing squads and then briskly moving to all the enemies of “intersectional justice.”

When FDR rose during the Great Depression, he brought in a gigantic amount of socialism. And, no one brought in more, before or since, in such a short amount of time. He lied his way into power, and he lied and lied and lied while he was in power.

So, now that a new, far greater Great Depression is coming, another leader will rise. And, he (or she) will be far, far worse, and blood will flow in the streets. Most Americans have no idea how evil their neighbors can be, when they have nothing to eat.

As someone once said, we are always only nine missed meals away from anarchy. And no, you do NOT want anarchy.

Famine killed 7 million people in USA

Here is the report on the article by Boris Borisov, titled “The American Famine”. Most of those who died, would have fallen ill from opportunistic diseases that took advantage of weakened immune systems. And, when you look at the population statistics, it should be clear that a lot of people are missing, that should not have been missing.

And, when starvation comes our way again – and it will – we will be far less prepared to survive than our forebears, almost a century ago.

A horrifying depression plus a Grand Solar Minimum plus a collapse in oil production all on top of a population that spent decades losing all morality and virtue.

Can you imagine how awful this will be?

And, soon?

Culture Shapers Summit

TS shared this in the comment section, and he said this:

Just heard this talked about yesterday morning when switching between drive-time talk radio on the Hugh Hewitt show, which is nationally syndicated at a “Rush Limbaugh” level. Not that I have omniscience when it comes to media, but this was the first time I had ever heard the Seven Mountains stuff discussed openly on a really major radio show, or any major media for that matter. I’m surprised that it’s broken out to that level of prominence already so figured this was worth sending. Hopefully Tony at AMTM sees this too. Makes ya shake your head…

(FYI, there is some audio that autoplays in the background that is pretty annoying.)

The problem that I see, is that… when America continues to fall in power and wealth …these ‘seven mountain’ people will gain political power. It hasn’t happened yet (and it might not happen), but they are poised to do so. And, it brings to mind that verse in John 16 that talks about those who will think that they are serving God, when they kill us.

I believe that Jesus was speaking about the period of persecution just after He died and rose again. But, it has also been something that has happened throughout the past two thousand years – mostly by Catholics, but also by leaders of the Protestant Reformation.

And no, Baptists are not – and have never been – Protestants. And, we aren’t the only ones.

Anyway, this looks like the beginnings of a new and ‘improved’ version of the Roman Catholic Church – stronger and more lethal.

And, it will be something that the Antichrist will take control of and use to conquer the world – assuming that these seven mountains people DO grow in power.

I’m not saying that these ‘Seven Mountains’ people will be the group that the Antichrist rules the world with. I’m just saying that they are a candidate for that.

Thanks, T S. This is terrible news.

The HU – Yuve Yuve Yu – YouTube

I was originally going to put this in the humor section, because… well, a Mongolian heavy metal band …called The HU?

Seriously, THE HU?

The irony was fun, and watching it was interesting, since it spoke of Mongolian history, but then it went dark. Because… apparently …there’s a Mongolian prophecy that speaks of a leader that will come and rule the world. A dark, powerful leader. And, they are calling for this leader to come.

I did not know about this prophecy. Now I do. I don’t like knowing this, to tell you the truth.

Pornhub reports spike in DC porn viewership during government shutdown – Story | WTTG

But, you need to look at the graph. These guys were watching porn while at work. Which is where Porhub saw their steepest DECLINE.

Basically, every government worker with a pornhub account, should be automatically fired. In fact, this is an opportunity to go their their work computers to find any porn activity. Just look at the graph. Pornhub had the biggest DIP in activity at 9 a.m., followed by 10 and 11 a.m.

Government workers watching porn on the taxpayer dollar. And, we are not surprised because…

NDP government moves to SHUT DOWN The Rebel! Ezra Levant explains – YouTube

If you live in Canada – and some of you do – you live in a horrifying, socialist dictatorship.

This is utterly amazing. Your government is acting like a third world country.

How is it possible for Canada to act like this?

Canadians, how can you tolerate this?

Quantum Physics, Feminism, and Intersectionality (THE SAAD TRUTH_832) – YouTube

Gad Saad is awesome. And, he’s a true intellectual who is against faux (fake) intellectualism. And, Mrs. Little was listening to him and said… “I want that video” …to share with other translators that she works with.

As Gad Saad says, this is intellectual terrorism. It’s an inch deep, but it throws so much gobbledy gook at you, that you can’t get your head around the fact that there is literally no concept of idea that has any structure in what is said.

But, you would need to be someone who KNOWS THESE WORDS INTIMATELY, to be able to prove the falsehood of what is being said.

And, one of the telling statements that he makes here, is that the can’t tell whether this is a hoax – and therefore satire – or a real academic paper.

We have become entranced at the complexity of our navels. We are belly-button gazers, marveling at how complex a bit of useless tissue is. We are extracting complexity from honest, simple truth.

In short, universities have become a factory for the production of morons and intellectual terrorists.

Oy VEH.

No need to install: Microsoft has controversial fake news filter NewsGuard built into mobile browser — RT World News

I have detested Microsoft for a long time. They a thugs, especially their corporate officers. And now, this.

If you are reading this via ANY Microsoft browser, stop right now and switch to a different one. This attempt to censor news, a the browser level, is a disgusting and evil attempt to stop you from getting the information that you need.

And, the only way to let them know that you disapprove of their tactics, is to stop using their software. And, I have done my best to avoid them as much as possible.

I also just went to the ‘addons’ page for Chrome and Firefox, to see how this addon is being rated. The positive ratings all appear to be liberals. The good thing is that conservatives are coming in and down-voting this piece of trash, with a vengeance.

I added my own opinion to the Chrome version, and you should too – if you have an account. Do likewise with Firefox, if you have a Firefox account.

I am amazed at what is going on. It’s as if we have lost our minds. No, I take that back.

WE HAVE LOST OUR MINDS.

WikiLeaks sues to unseal any charges against founder Assange

Secret indictments are the purview of oppressive regimes. It’s what the Soviets did. It’s what China does. It’s what every dictator under heaven has done, does and will do.

Does anyone remember the ‘Star Chamber’?

Horrifying injustice was the result, and here we are again… with yet another ‘Star Chamber’.

Shutdown Woes Show How Overgrown the Gov. Has Become – Liberty Nation

This… THIS …is the first line of this article and an excellent, excellent point:

The fact that a government shutdown can have a real impact on our economy proves just how pervasive it has become.

If the government is partially shut down, it shouldn’t make much of a difference. But, with all the yelling and screaming… you’d think the world had ended.

Maybe it’s time for all these workers that have been ‘shut down’ to find real jobs.

China, Russia Building Super-EMP Bombs for ‘Blackout Warfare’

This article brings me back to how Omega Shock got started. Iran was planning just such an attack, and I heard about it on April 5th, 2011. And, in 2007, I predicted that this would probably be their strategy for the destruction of the United States.

Just two or three – or four, if they wanted to be thorough – would do the job. And, the problem is that America has become so evil, that this might be how God judges America.

Unfortunately, this is also how China might attempt to destroy Taiwan. We shall see. Taiwan has known about this strategy for a while, so maybe they have an answer for it.

Or not.

China, Russia, Iran & N Korea Building Super EMP Bombs, 2537 – YouTube

And, Bill Still does an excellent job covering this threat, also. This is a ‘must listen’. And, it’s not hype. We’ve tested this weapon, and we know that it works. Just look up ‘Starfish Prime’.

And, the Russians had their own version of this test that also proved successful.

 

ARTICLES OF NOTE

These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.

Chinas Unique SUPERSTITIONS – YouTube

Okay, I’ve run into all of these Chinese superstitions. They’re all kinda funny. And, the chopsticks in rice?

That is SO irresistible. I’m sorry. I just can’t help it. It’s so silly, that I can’t help doing it every chance that I get. And yeah, lots of buildings do not have a fourth floor.

Lots of it is just superstitious word games. Others are… well, I don’t know. Just strange.

But, if anyone Chinese tells you that your hat looks green…

Taibbi: Has The Government Legalized Secret Defense Spending? | Zero Hedge

Hey, do you like issuing the military and intelligence services a blank check? A CLASSIFIED blank check?

That’s right, the US Department of Defense cannot account for $21 Trillion. This article verifies a much lower figure that is also astounding. but the professor who tracked down the fact of the missing TWENTY ONE TRILLION DOLLARS, has the official documents that add up.

During the Reagan years, we called the Soviet Union the Evil Empire. Well, now WE are the Evil Empire.

Drug maker payments to doctors linked to higher opioid overdose deaths

So, doctors are being paid to push more opioids onto their patients. In fact, the whole idea of monetary incentives to doctors to prescribe ANY drug, is disgusting. Doctors should prescribe the drug that the patient needs. And, ONLY what the patient needs. Not what the doctor benefits from.

This is the sorcery that Revelation is talking about. Pharmakopeia. And, it’s disgusting.

The history of America is awash with the blood of the innocent.

In Unprecedented Speech, President Xi Warns Of “Serious Dangers” To Communist Party Rule | Zero Hedge

If you want to understand WHY a financial collapse in China is a problem… you only need to read this:

Since the days of Deng Xiaoping, the Chinese Communist Party has maintained its absolute authority over China’s roughly 1.4 billion people via an explicit social contract: the CCP would engineer an economic miracle that would lift hundreds of millions of people into the middle class, and in return, the Chinese people would accept the limitations on political freedoms demanded by the CCP.

Everyone living in East Asia understands that ‘social contract’. When that ‘contract’ is broken, the average Chinese man and woman will go nuts. And yes, they ARE volatile.

Blain: “China Is Juggling Half A Dozen Flaming Hand Grenades While Walking On A High Wire” | Zero Hedge

Here’s more insight on the issue from Bill Blain. All that I need to add is that ALL – yes, ALL – of China’s growth for the past ten years was solely due to massive and even more massive debt.

What happens when they are forced to stop juicing the economy with cheap debt?

“I Can’t Say I’m Sorry” Says Covington MAGA Hat Teen; “Vietnam Vet” Indian Outed As Fridge-Fixer | Zero Hedge

This kid stood his ground and spoke honestly. And, he refused to allow the reporter to push him into saying something that he did not do.

What did he do?

He wore a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, and did not allow a lying, aggressive and dishonorable group of people to push him around.

That kid did the right thing and should not have been allowed to suffer the abuse that he and his family have been suffering.

Millennials and Gen Z Support Big Gov’t: Academic Brainwashing or Young Naivety? – Mish Talk

If you want another example of why America is doomed, just look at this article. I was born right at the beginning of Gen X. And, I KNOW how stupid my fellow students were in college. And, I went to college early.

As the Gen X generation flooded in, there was a real change on campus. Fewer morals. Less intelligence. Less willingness to work hard. And, it has been downhill from there.

And, the professors?

They were morons, even when I was going to school. Yes, there were some excellent teachers who were unusual in their abilities, but most of them were uniformly terrible.

I am appalled at the quality of education in America, where kids are forced to consume utter foolishness and regurgitate it on tests. And, when I was going to university, I couldn’t wait to graduate, so that I could begin the process of deprogramming.

Why did we allow this?

ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL COLLAPSE

We’ve been talking about the collapse of the economy and financial system for a very long time, and every day that collapse is delayed… well …the collapse just gets worse and worse. Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.

In fact, it has begun already.

By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.

86 million American consumers fear maxing out a credit card: Report

please, Please PLEASE get rid of your credit card debt. Yes, credit cards are useful and convenient, but the interest that they charge is horrifying. And, there’s a moral dimension to this.

All the interest that you pay to the banks, only makes the banks stronger and gives them more control over your life and the life of the nation that you live in.

This credit card debt MUST STOP. You are ruining your life.

But, this is also a sign that the average American is finding it hard to ‘make ends meet’. We’ve all been there, where we are between jobs or need to cover an unexpected expense. But, this rise is a bad sign for the economy.

Tomgram: Nick Turse, Victory in Our Time | TomDispatch

Here is the one paragraph that you need to read. Read the other if you have the time, but this one is the one that you need to read:

Expressed differently, the United States has not won a major conflict since 1945; has a trillion-dollar national security budget; has had 17 military commanders in the last 17 years in Afghanistan, a country plagued by 23,744 “security incidents” (the most ever recorded) in 2017 alone; has spent around $3 trillion, primarily on that war and the rest of the war on terror, including the ongoing conflict in Iraq, which then-defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld swore, in 2002, would be over in only “five days or five weeks or five months,” but where approximately 5,000 U.S. troops remain today; and yet 74% of the American people still express high confidence in the U.S. military.

Trillions spent on war, Trillions. And, what did we get for it?

World War 3: ‘Rapid military escalation’ between Iran and Israel | World | News | Express.co.uk

There is a false statement in here that claims that Iran was just responding to an Israeli attack.

Sorry, but this is not so, and the person quoted is unreliable.

However, the title of this piece is the most important part of this. An escalation is developing – even though Israel has been careful to target only Iranian assets and prevent civilian casualties. Furthermore, Iran is under no such restraint and sees civilian casualties as a benefit.

When will Ben Gurion airport come under attack?

I think that the word is… SOON.

Anti-Trump Frenzy Threatens to End Superpower Diplomacy | The Nation

America is the NUMBER ONE REASON why Russia is a ‘threat’. We started the ball rolling in 1999 when we broke our promise to Russia to not NATO, and we did so, right up to Russia’s border. Then, in 2008 America created Russo-Georgian War – by pushing Saakashvilli to attack the Russians in Ossetia and Abkhazia. We created the Syrian Civil war. We destroyed Libya. We tore Ukrain apart. We took over Iraq and turned it into a mess.

And now, the mainstream media and most of Washington D.C. wants Putin’s head on a pole.

What would you do if you were Putin?

Modernize the Russian military as fast as you can possibly modernize. And, they hit the ground running in 2008. That stupid Russo-Georgian War was what REALLY got them going.

ISRAEL

There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.

I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.

So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.

My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

– Psalm 122:6

May you prosper. And, may you understand how important the Land of Israel is, in these Last Days.

Israel Announces Sustained Strikes On Damascus; Syria Fires Back In Major Escalation | Zero Hedge

I’m still wondering about how Damascus will wind up being destroyed. As Iran keeps escalating… Israel will need to do something with Damascus.

World War 3 Cometh: Syria Is Threatening To Bomb The Airport In Tel Aviv And Iran Is Pledging To Wipe Israel Off The Map – End Of The American Dream

Michael Snyder is hinting at the coming of Gog and Magog, and in one sense, he’s right. But, as one young man from the Netherlands pointed out to me once, Damascus needs to be destroyed first.

And, unfortunately, that is probably what will happen. Iran sees Syria as their big opportunity to gain territorial advantage, and Israel is doing her best to neutralize that. And, if they attack Tel Aviv or the Ben Gurion airport… Damascus might go up in flames.

We’ll see. But, it looks like this is getting very serious. Oh, and that prophecy about the destruction of Damascus? See the link below.

Isaiah 17 | The Ezekiel Tetrad [Ezekiel 36-39]

I wrote this in 2012, and I’m afraid that we’ve moved closer to the fulfillment of this prophecy. I have thought this a few times over the last six or seven years. But, we are a lot closer than we have ever been before.

Why?

Well, you’ve seen the exchange of missile fire, between Iran and Israel, recently right?

The threats to attack Tel Aviv and Ben Gurion?

Well, I’m not sure that these are idle threats, and the devastation on both sides – that Isaiah 17 describes – will be huge. Now, I know that this could come at the same time that Gog and Magog comes, or it could come before. It’s hard to know. But, if I had to guess, it sounds like my Dutch friend is right.

Before Gog and Magog comes, Damascus might need to be destroyed first – in the way that Isaiah 17 describes. And, I really do not like to think about how awful that will be.

59 thoughts on “Strong Delusion – Intro”

    • Hi Rob,

      I think that you are trying to hard to connect the dots there. There are a lot of allusions and metaphors used by Paul and the other writers of the New Testament, and they aren’t meant to be mixed together like that – assuming that I understood the point that you were making.

      However, there is a larger question that remains unanswered from a previous discussion:

      My question to you, earlier, might have gotten lost in the (e)mail. It’s about the Trinity. The concept of the Trinity does NOT say that there is only one person.

      The concept of the Trinity is that there are three persons in God. Three individual persons that are divisible but are so unified that they are identical in character, knowledge, personality, etc – i.e., One.

      So, either you agree that there is a Trinity, or it seem that you are claiming that Jesus was created by The Father – unless there is a third option.

      I’m not sure what else you could be claiming. Modalism is NOT Trinitarian.

      If you claim that Jesus was created, you must repent of this. If you are NOT claiming that Jesus had a beginning, then I misunderstood you.

      I think that you might need to go back to that article and clarify what you are saying, Rob. And again, I hope that I’m wrong in what I thought that you were saying.

      Yours in Christ,

        Please explain to me what the “firstborn of ALL creation” means to you:

        Colossians 1:13-15 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; (14) in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: (15) who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;

          • Before casting judgment please explain what these two passages are teaching us:

            1 Corinthians 1:24 but unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

            So if Jesus is the wisdom of God let’s listen to what “Wisdom” has to say about Himself:

          • Sorry John but I was never a Jehovan’s witness! I was a baptist who actually started to study the sum of Father’s Word. I realized the trinity doctrine is so confusing that it truly does make us feel like “a 2 year old trying to understand how a computer microchip works”. I also agree with this statement in that link you provided below: “As mere humans we simply can not understand the makeup of our creator.” But Father promises us His Spirit who will teach us ALL things including the relationship of the Father with His Holy Spirit and His Son:

            John 14:26 But the Comforter, even the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you.

          • I find it rather interesting that you continue to remove the “reply” button on these comments and the scriptures I have posted as though anyone reading this does not have the ability to discern scripture themselves. You are free to email me at —-@—-.com and please prove exactly what those scriptures I posted are saying since you feel I do not understand them.

          • Rob, the software limits the number of nested comments. I’m not deleting the ‘reply’ button. But unfortunately, there’s nothing more to talk about. You have rejected Christ. You have chosen your own intellect, instead of submitting to God. Therefore, you are lost. If God means to rescue you from your own apostasy, God will use someone else to do so. – JL

          • Jesus is a God(Deity) under His Father who is the Most High God(Deity) and we are gods(deities) too:

            John 10:34-36 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? (35) If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (and the scripture cannot be broken), (36) say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

            Please consider EVERY passage for doctrine must only come from ALL scriptures combined:

            2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

          • Hi Rob,

            Since your faith is from intellect, and not the spirit, I doubt that there is anything that I can say that will mean anything to you. You have forsaken the mind of Christ and taken upon yourself the mind of man.

            This grieves me because it means that you will not go to heaven, and I am horrified at this thought. But, my horror at this compels me to make one last attempt to at least present some of the foundation of how we are to interpret what the Bible says.

            Let me start out by saying that the Bible has been deliberately constructed to be a puzzle. Those with the Holy Spirit, will understand. Those without the Holy Spirit, will not. In fact, you might even say that there are traps in the Bible to catch those who do not have a God-centered faith. But, those are my words. We would do better to look at the words of God:

            9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

            10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

            11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

            12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

            13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

            – Isaiah 28: 9-13

            Because you chose a man-centered faith, you have been caught. And, we are always presented with this choice, to see with human logic or with Holy Spirit logic.

            Since you claim that Jesus is a created god, I will dispense with proof that He is God.

            Here are foundational verses:

            FIRST (Although the order is unimportant)

            For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

            – Isaiah 9:6

            Do you understand the word ‘everlasting Father’?

            The words in Hebrew are ‘Avi Ad’ (pronounced Avee Odd). That is Father WITHOUT BEGINNING. WITHOUT END.

            SECOND

            Here is another:

            1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

            2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

            3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

            – Hebrews 7:1-3

            Melchisedec is Hebrew. It’s Mel-kee Stedek – King of Righteousness. Salem was (and is) Jerusalem. Jerusalem means, city of peace. Yeru – city of. Salem – peace. Another way of putting it, is… City of Salem. And, this Melchisedec was/is the pre-incarnate Jesus. This was NOT God the Father.

            Do you need proof?

            Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

            – John 6:46

            I could go on, but I have work to do. And, your human intellect will reject what I have written.

            It would have been better for you to be a Modalist and claim that Jesus is also God the Father. At least then, you would not have rejected Christ.

            Rob, you are in eternal trouble. You face the just wrath of Christ, whom you have denied.

            Yours in Christ,

    • Hi Ken Seeger,

      Thanks for letting me know about the Safari browser. I will look into this. I have written the post-it-note and it will sit and glare at me until I deal with it.

      Yes, I’ve been thinking about this ‘Alien Messiah’ thing too. It certainly would blow ME away. I wouldn’t believe it, but I’d be amazed at it. What an incredible show.

      (WARNING! – MARJOR RANT COMMENCING! – WARNING! THE EMERGENCY RANT NOTIFICATION SYSTEM HAS ISSUED A RANT WARNING FOR THIS COMMENT.)

      Now, you just accidentally pressed one of my buttons. The link that you gave is to a website run by Bill Salus. And, I am betting that he’s a really great guy. And, I’m not – in ANY WAY – doubting his service to God or his love of the Lord. But, this theory of his about the ‘Psalm 83 War’ is driving me nuts.

      Psalm 83 does NOT contain any language that would qualify it as a prophecy. None. Zip. Zero. Nada. Nicht!!! Nor, is there a prophet that points this out. And, just like my ranting about Daniel’s 70th Week, we should never insert meaning into the Bible, that is not already there.

      And, everyone and their grandmother is jumping on this bandwagon. For no good reason whatsoever!

      I mean, it makes me want to misuse exclamation points!!

      EVEN WRITE IN ALL CAPS!

      So, unless someone can show clearly prophetic wording in Psalm 83, Bill needs to issue a retraction and an apology for leading people into this false theory.

      It might be a minor heresy, but it’s still a heresy.

      Okay, I’ll calm down now. Just give me a minute.

      (pant!)

      (pant!)

      (THE EMERGENCY RANT NOTIFICATION SYSTEM HAS NOW ISSUED AN ALL CLEAR. RANT HAS ENDED.)

      Thanks, Ken. Good point, and I’ve had plans to look into this alien thing.

        The History Channel just put out a two-hour special last night on the works of the horrendously misguided dude who wrote “The Chariots of the Gods”. Honestly, it sent chills down my spine. Can’t believe where this is going.

        • Hi TL2,

          Oh dear, Erich von Daniken.

          That dude isn’t just midguided, he’s an idiot and a fraud, just like Sitchen and the rest. And, that’s one of the things that gets me so… upset? in a lather? foaming at the mouth? …because it’s such complete nonsense.

          If I was an Atheist, I would still be upset at those shysters. They have all the intellectual integrity of a cockroach. They are the snake oil salesmen of our age, and I am truly disgusted by these morons.

          It’s one thing to be tricked by a clever delusion. But, to be tricked by something like this?

          I AM INSULTED!

          MY PRIDE HAS BEEN DISRESPECTED!

          HOW DARE THEY!

          Okay, I’ll calm down. But, I would hope that the Antichrist would have the decency to delude us with something more clever than this Daniken fraud. But, I’m afraid that this probably WILL be THE DELUSION, as much as this nauseates me.

          I mean, I love a good science fiction novel with space ships, aliens and big explosions. But, I know the difference between an entertaining story and reality.

          At least… most of the time.

          (sigh)

          What a crazy world that we live in, TL2.

  1. What if this great delusion is couched in a Right-Wing hero who rescues us from the evil Left? What if the AntiMesiah brings a huge Hegelian shift to the right? What if he is moral and outwardly righteous? What if you just love him? What if he promises to protect the church and you really, really want to believe him? What if he hangs Obama and Hillary and their friends? What if he builds a Temple in Jerusalem and his armies defeat all of Israel’s enemies? Would that be a real delusion???

  2. Strong Delusion!! Is it here already? In many ways it seems so. Remember the days when democrats were the type of people that lived moral lives, and stood up against Evil!! Yeah I know that was long ago. We now live in a world of deluded people. For the life of me, I cannot understand how someone can say they believe in GOD, BIBLE, and TRUTH, and know how they vote can stop a beating heart. John the Baptist recognized JESUS from the womb!! At what point do we set ourselves apart. It seems the whole world has gone berserk!! If you don’t think so turn on CNN!! The promotion of lies, half truth, and deception is bearing glorious fruit. Evil is winning, while people walk around thinking that some outside source will save us. GOD sent Donald Trump to save us?? I can agree with half of that statement. I haven’t seen a politician yet that didn’t bring more evil upon we the people. If the LORD hasn’t already sent this delusion already, we cannot imagine what it will manifest as. I grew up thinking life was good, in the finest country in the world, hopefully these delusions are behind me.

    • Hey Mangledman,

      The verse that scares me is this one:

      For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

      – Matthew 24:24

      Every time I read that, I give a mental shiver. The deception will be so bad, that you and I will stop and think. We’ll still call it deception, but it will be utterly fantastic.

      And, it’s hard for me to know WHAT would make me stop and think like that. I mean, this will be the toughest deception that we will have EVER seen.

Donald Trump knows exactly who he picks, and why. Barr is swamp critter supreme, and Trump keeps saying things that are a little off, and the list keeps getting bigger. He says he supports the 2nd amendment and he was the first to bring up RED FLAG LAW, and suddenly bills for it are already up and running, leaving me with the conclusion of why he beefed up the NDAA!!

  4. Could the Strong Delusion for Christians be they are positive they are born again and going to heaven—when they in fact are not—because they never received the Agape Love of the Truth (II Thes.2:10-12)?

    If a Christian calls Jesus Christ his Lord (Mt.7:22), has gifts of the Spirit such as faith, miracles, healing, prophecy, etc. (I Cor. 13), and believes those gifts and power prove his salvation and possession of AGAPE LOVE when it doesn’t, THAT would be STRONG DELUSION.

    Matthew 7:22-23

    “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Jesus Christ

  5. You wrote a great article this week, John. There are several great candidates for the strong delusion referred to. One of the strongest, I think, you referred to when you pointed out that not everyone who calls himself a Christian will enter heaven.

    There is a great parallel picture in Isaiah 28:14-22, where the leaders of Jerusalem made a covenant with death and and an agreement with hell. They said they were immune from judgment. God responded with a prophecy of Jesus, a foundation and cornerstone in Zion. Like with any building, everything that is stacked on the foundation must be in alignment, tested by the line and the plumb-line. God says he will lay their righteousness and judgments to the standard set by cornerstone, Jesus, “and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies.”

    If the scornful rulers of Jerusalem were to be measured against Jesus’s standard, how much more does that apply to those of us who call ourselves Christians, the living stones of His temple? Of course, that standard is impossible in our own strength, and our only hope is in His salvation. Nevertheless, a blind belief in eternal salvation has swept through the church. It is very redolent of that covenant with death and agreement with hell of the Jewish leaders. Still, in the end, it will be those who have focused their lives on him, those who do His will and worked out their salvation with fear and trembling, that will enter the Kingdom.

    Another, similar idea is in Romans 1:21-32 where people who once knew God didn’t give him due glory and reverence, but turned their worship to an image of their own creation. Their punishment was that God gave them up to lust of uncleanness and vile affections.

    It is interesting how Paul used homosexuality as a chief and obvious example of that reprobate mind, which also leads to the whole list of other sins found in verses 29-32. We don’t have to look far to see how homosexuality has colonised our culture. Even many parts of the church who haven’t embraced it openly no longer react in a Godly way, treating it like the vile perversion that it is. Sadly, the rest of the list is all too prominent in the church, too. Where is the spotless bride Jesus is coming for?

    So what is the singular strong delusion? Good question. There are so many delusions, but maybe is it simply that reprobate mind that cannot see the truth for what it is.

      (And, Mrs. Little returns your regard!)

      Here are a couple articles that I’ve written on the subject of the Flat Earthers:

      http://www.omegashock.com/2015/11/20/escaping-the-flat-earth-society/

      There’s more material swirling around the Omega Shock website, since I tend to deal with the subject of cognitive bias and specific forms of it, like the ‘Dunning-Kruger Effect’. I am amazed by these things, so I tend to talk about them when they pop up.

      Just understand that my obsession with the Flat Earth Society is just an excellent way of talking about the cognitive problems that we we all have. At heart, in some small way, we are all Flat Earthers.

      I hope that helps, Susan. Let me know if you want more.

    Have you heard of the Message Bible? We just quit going to our church as they preach from the Message. We had never heard of it but did some research and got schocked! We found out that many other pastors in our are read it too! We have kids and now we are praying what to do next…Our area simply doesn’t have good churches, seems like there is deception in almost every church. The Message, prosperity gospel, immorality accepted….No wonder Jesus said will He find faith on earth when He returns.

  8. I didn’t check out ALIEN articles, but I saw a movie called the 5th WAVE. It is fiction, but it throws a lot of end time scenarios. It was pretty tame as far as language, and no sex, and safe as I remember it. With project blue beam being ancient history, there are still anomalies from time to time. It is not a big thing to see cities in the skies and other strange things. I have watched that movie at least half dozen times looking for missed details, it was interesting. Delusions and all

  9. Great article Brother John!

    I wish I could explain better but I think the strong delusion is a universal belief that God doesn’t exist. Granted, this is a generalization and doesn’t specify any precipitating events that might enable this delusion. If you don’t believe God exists, you don’t believe that he is going to do anything- such as punish sin and execute judgement on the wicked.

    Before the Flood, God warned that he wasn’t going to delay judgement forever- ‘my Spirit shall not always strive with man’- meaning the point comes when He is done. Judgement is pronounced and destruction comes. Before the Flood the people became convinced that God did not exist and thus was not going to do anything to punish their wickedness right up until He did. Life- such as it was- went on right until the end.

    The men of Sodom were so convinced that God had no consequence, that when two supernatural visitors appeared- whom Abraham and Lot immediately recognized as angels- they decided to demand sex with them. The priests in the Temple before the captivity said “God does not see us”- He does not exist. And eventually, God was done. He told Jeremiah- ‘even if they repent now- I will not hear them.’

    I really do not think there are very many true atheists. I think a belief in a “Higher Power” is an innate, Universal knowledge. I think only God can pierce that knowledge.

    You hit the nail on the head with the discussion of love. Those that receive the Love of Christ, want to share that wonderful Love with others. They want to teach, preach, and heal. They are concerned with pleasing God. Receiving the love of Truth is different than just believing in God. Even the Devils believe. Receiving the Love drives out fear.

    Fear is the root cause of delusion. Fear of losing all those material possessions- “blessings that have been claimed” or fruits of “your good life now”- is what leads to belief in a rapture. People are afraid of ‘suffering wrath’ or living in an uncomfortable Tribulation world without all their comforts, that they willingly turn to fables. Fear of the Truth and what it requires is why people turn to fables like Flat-earth. Fear of giving up their hedonistic lifestyle was what conquered Sodom.

    If you have the Love of Christ, it drives out all fear. Many people are going to die, be killed in the days to come- many readers of Omega Shock. That is no reason to be afraid. That’s the worst thing they can do, and it does not matter to the Believer. We have the victory over death.

    Look at what people believe now in the Churches. I don’t have to tell anyone.

    God is not going to strive with us forever. He will turn us over to the strong delusion- He does not exist, He does not see- eat, drink, and be merry- nothing is going to happen.

    That’s just my feeling on the subject. Thanks very much for the topic, it has got me thinking alot, and thank you to everyone who has commented.

    Beware false prophets!

    • Hi Bondo,

      Many excellent points, brother.

      I often find myself wondering when enough is enough, in the eyes of God. And, I am deeply grieved at the heresy that many Christians hold with such enthusiasm. It’s as if the words of God aren’t all that important, and that corrupting them with our own foolish thoughts is not a big deal.

      I expect the unsaved to be corrupt. I am distressed by it, but my expectations are still low, when I look at them. But, for those who hold the truth in unrighteous hands… that is another thing altogether.

      We dare to defy the Living God, the Father of all Creation. We dare to twist the words of the Son, the one who died to save us. And, we cast aside the Holy Spirit, seeking for the praise of men, instead of a humble truth of God. THAT gets me the most.

      I am so glad that you have stepped out in faith and took up the battle with your own website:

      The more of us out there doing that, the greater the opportunity for our brothers and sisters to escape what is coming.

  12. I need a new name for God. With your knowledge of Hebrew, you can help me come up with it. You know the Jehovah-jireh, Jehovah-rapha, Jehovah-shammah names? That mean He provides, He heals, He is present — I want one that means, Jehovah Who Fixes Everything. What would that be, in Hebrew? And I want a word that really means fix, as we mean it – like, there’s a flat tire and somebody fixes it. Something breaks, something fouls up, something just completely malfunctions and falls apart – and there is some ingenious and invaluable person who always knows how to fix it. I want a name like that for God.

    • Hi DRG,

      The word for ‘repair’ is Tikun or Tikkun (תיקון) and it’s pronounced ‘tee-koon’. There’s an awful magazine with that name. However, it wouldn’t be Yehova Tikun, but Yehovah Tiken (tee-ken) or יהוה תקן. The thing is that, for 95% of the life of the Hebrew language, there was nothing to repair. If it wasn’t biological, it didn’t work.

      So, you would need a ‘rophe’ or roh-fey (רופא), so Yehovah Rapha (יהוה רפא) makes a lot of sense. But, we need repairs in this day and age, so tee-ken would fit.

      By the way, I have a bone to pick with those who say ‘yireh’ (aka, Jireh and pronounced yee-ray) is ‘will provide’. The word actually means ‘will see’, as in I will see the sun come up tomorrow. Yehovah Will See. Yehovah Yireh.

      I understand WHY they did that, because it didn’t make sense in the sentence. But, people need to understand that Hebrew is very specific, and ‘Yireh’ can never be ‘Will Provide’. Ever. Not even close.

      Okay, my red button has now been ‘unpushed’.

      I hope that helps, DRG.

    • Hi DRG,

      I’m afraid that you have that a bit inside out. Remember that I was a physics major before switching to political science in college.

      Every single thing in the universe produces gravity, whether it spins or not. The spin of the Earth doesn’t produce gravity, it actually reduces the amount of gravity that we feel at the equator due to centrifugal force.

      Think of gravity as the centripetal force, that keeps us anchored to the ground, while we spin about.

      Also, notice that the Earth has a bit of a bulge around the equator.

      I hope that helps, DRG.

      • Why thank you. I will have to look that up to understand it better. I do recall you were a physics major, and I did not even take physics 101, which I regret now. Nor political science 101, which I also regret. I took a lot of things I did not need for my major, just because I thought a well-rounded education should include them. Like botany, chemistry, medieval history. And fencing. And archery. And various philosophies and religions. All fascinating. But I never did get to physics. I knew gravity was somehow related to mass, but I thought the spinning was part of it too, and did not understand how it interacted with centrifugal force.
