Sounds like you've had some type of a personal vision about how strong the deception is in this world.
having read the bible many times myself, I completely understand what you are trying to say with all of your references of strong delusion and
deception in this world. There is no doubt that God can reveal or show anyone at any time anything that he wants to show them.
After reading over your post a few times, it is sounding to me like you are inadvertently talking about and touting or promoting " satan " who is
just a fallen angel too much. Everyone must remember and keep in mind that satan is just a fallen angel who is " Already Defeated ". The bible has
many, many stories about angels in it. The bible always talks about how the angels are used as messengers. The fallen angels would of course be the "
lying messengers " because satan is the father of all lies.
Lets take a look at all of the angels that God created for a little bit. Of course everyone knows that there are different ranks or classes of
angels. Some are cherub's some are seraphim's and some are arc angels etc. etc.
Another way of looking at the angels, is like looking at them and comparing them to say cars or aircraft. There are very simple and low cost cars,
just like there are very simple and low cost aircraft. Also there are some fancy jets and even some very fast fighter jets.
The angels are not human, in other words they don't have to eat and breath like humans do. Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world, for all
people. The bible states that the angels desire to look into salvation. -
" To whom it was revealed, that not to themselves, but to us they did minister the things, which are now reported to you by them that have preached
the gospel to you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into. "
And also there is " Rejoicing in Heaven " by the angels over even 1 sinner that repents. Luk 15:10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the
presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
Angels are not to be Worshiped by people, at any time or anywhere. They are created beings by God and that is one of the main ways to tell if they are
a fallen angel or not. An angel who has not fallen will always give the strict warning to " not worship them " And of course a fallen angel would
want mankind to worship them.
Of course it would be child's play for any angel to be able to do seemingly impossible things that mankind cannot do. That still does not change the
fact that angels are not to be worshiped or overly glorified by men, women and children. In other words, it would be like worshiping a fancy and
expensive car, or a fancy fighter jet with all of the bells and whistles. All throughout history it has been the common error of man to want to
worship angels. Build statues to honor them by putting them on buildings or in water fountains or wherever or whatever. It would also be like men and
women worshiping a super computer or a big chemical plant or the sun or moon.
If God sends a big powerful angel to save you or protect you, do not worship it or praise it. All worship, praise honor and glory belong to God who
Just some of my thoughts after reading your thread xKtox. I hope you or anyone else who reads this are not offended by my interpretation on this
subject about angels. I do not want to sound like I know everything on this subject, because of course I do not know it all either.
Yes strong delusion is being sent, and if it where possible, it would deceive even the elect.
