How are people deceived?
Isn't deception individual? For instance on 9-11 some people knew immediately that something was wrong and that deception was being worked, but most
I guess what I'm saying, is that the "deception" IS the deception.
Everyone is looking for the "deceiver" because they themselves are evil and ARE the deceiver. This is how they are swept away being caught in such a
great deception (wrought by god) to gather those out of the kingdom that offend. First you must "bind" the strong man and that is done by inticement
such as...."I give you free eternal life, all you have to do is profess my name". Because God is Spirit and truth, everything he does is not only
heard (spirit), but done (truth).
If people believe they are not accountable themselves as "Anti-christs" first, so that they may receive witness as lost sheep to be brought under
the remission of sins, are themselves under chains of darkness and lost.
Salvation is Generation to Generation and always with the Son of man.
Parents give up themselves to suffer the son/daughter of God. Jesus never taught that his death was the salvation, but that his life is..."and more
abundant" and in "this current life".
Remember you must be willing to give up everything, even yourself or "you are not worthy to be my deciples". He never said you would go to some sort
of make believe place where your family would be and all those that love you. He said, "Follow me". "What good is it to gain the whole world, but
loose your soul (family house). Those not regenerating and giving material to the building of the temple will not see life again. Their names will
never be spoken of again, not memory of them brought to mind.
Betraying "Jesus" is not "suffering the children to come UNTO ME. He who betrays him "it had been better that man had not been born".
Jesus is first and Last. He kept all that his father had given him (everyone) except one of which he said..."Father, why hast thou forsaken me".
It is his own hand that is whelmed, or made wet in the dish. "Let not your left hand know what your right hand is doing" He kept all but one,
God holds each man accountable for his own actions as God is with us, also he is Judged with us and "takes no pleasure in the death of sinners".
After all, the biblical character of Jesus is the only one who fits the "Anti-Christ" but that's because he is first and LAST.
"I create darkness and form light, I create evil and do good, I the LORD do all these things"
All this being said, deception won't come from the outside friends, but from the inside...of you.
To you Christ is saying, "Come out of your tomb and live"..."today, if you will hear my voice"....TODAY, not some future sky kingdom. He was not
of a different world, but a different age...this one, that is, your age.
