“So now the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours. The Lord has decreed disaster for you.”
-1 Kings 22:23
He allowed them to be decieved by a spirit.
Ah, Lord God! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the
Not about him decieving Judah. Judah had been worshipping idols again, and committing fornication and adultery and all manner of debauchery. This was
an instance where they thought they could do whatever they want and sin without repercussion because they were "the chosen people". God promised
them peace if they would return to his statues, but they didn't. False prophets arose to decieve the nation and the people believed them. He brought
them inner turmoil. This was an allusion to the future coming of Christ who would bring the sword of truth to cleave the wicked from the righteous
which was the split between those who would follow him and those who wanted him dead.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
-2 Thessalonians 2:11
This is where the great falling away begins, which we're experiencing now as people turn towards atheism and other vices, so that they can justify
the things they do. The Son of Perdition cannot be revealed unless the falling away occurs.
2 Thess 2:9-10
9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception
among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
It was a working of Satan, not God. They refuse the truth so God will allow them to perish. The Delusion is that he allows them to believe they are
right to follow the Son of Perdition, for they have already refused the truth. He seals the deal. It's Satan's deception, God just allows it to
happen so that the end will come. Perdition means "lawless", so the man of sin is lawless and in regards to that law, it's he laws Christ set down
before he left. This lawless one disobeys Christs laws, so obviously he will claim to believe in Jesus. Enter, the muslim Mahdi and his Sharia.
