“To whom shall He teach knowledge? And whom shall He make to understand the message? Those weaned from the milk and removed from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, there a little”… Isaiah 28:9-10
We live in a world, where word by word things are being changed. Mass deceptions, as defined as words that are contrary to the Holy Scriptures, are being placed as snares upon the whole world, word by word. This tactic has been deployed on unsuspecting masses for quite a time. The purpose of this article is to make people, including Believers, aware of such tactics, not to actually break down the principals of how the deception works.
Truly there is an easy way to overcome these deceptions. For Christians, for those who have truly repented and by faith believed into Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, simply believe God, believe His Word, believe what he says and anything that is contrary to what our Creator has declared, then we can easily see through the deception. Really it is that simple.
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on all the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies. Therefore take up all the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand firm therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints;” Ephesians 6:10-18
“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the Word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily, to see whether these things are so.” Acts 17:11
This article is going to touch on a potentially very serious subject. While I by no means claim to have any special insight regarding prophecy, I am seeing what may very well be a huge snare in our midst, one of biblical proportions of deception. Could this be tied into the Antichrist system, perhaps, then again perhaps not? Jesus makes quite clear no one knows the day nor the hour and I doubt that Believers would know who the Antichrist is prior to the pretribulation Rapture. We might suspect, we could guess it correctly, but I would think the verification of such a thing would not be prior to the Lord taking us to be with Him.
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of Heaven, but My Father only.” Matthew 24:36
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He is now restraining, until it is raised from out of the midst.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:7
With that said, also understand that I do not find it my duty or the duty of the Christian Church to try and guess exactly what mechanism will be used for the mark of the beast, or who the Antichrist will be. While certainly these subjects make for interesting conversations, with that said, our faith should be solid enough to know that these things will happen and ultimately what we have been called to do, as Believers, is to further the Gospel, by doing the Lord’s will individually in regards to this work of His. Certainly there are those who are needed to, at least on occasion, preach against false doctrines (2 Tim. 4:2), which do oftentimes include a post-trib rapture theory, some who claim that we are in the Tribulation now, etc. Yet I must be reminded that there are always those who proclaim that such and such a person is the Antichrist, by either naming every recent President of the United States or speculating future leaders of Israel. Due to this, someone will eventually have guessed it correctly, though I do not believe that the Lord would actually give insight into such things, as that is not for the Church (Rev. 4:1), who at that time will be removed, for we are not appointed to wrath (1 Cor. 5:9).
“And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, so that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.” Revelation 13:16-18
“And then the lawless one will be unveiled, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.” 2 Thessalonians 2:8
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My Words will by no means pass away.” Matthew 24:35
“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
Nonetheless I do not shy away from discussing such things, especially if the burden is laid on my heart, but I tell all to exercise caution in such discussions that only lead to speculation, without any absolute proof. Eventually a time will come when the Rapture has happened (Rev. 22:10-12) and those who had heard of some of these things and been Left Behind will take to the internet. Those who happened, by chance of the moment, to have guessed who the Antichrist was correctly will have their writings and doctrines that they teach being promoted, yet further dissuading the masses of people from the simplicity that is in Christ. This will only render the deception greater and as such will cause people to believe the person’s false doctrine, who logically would also have been Left Behind, heaping even more deception, in many cases justly.
“But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted; you may well put up with it.” 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who are perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:9-12
We have discussed many issues regarding what the world teaches verses what God says. There is a big difference here. The Creator of this world (Is. 42:5), your Creator (Gen. 1:27), has given His Words to all humanity, has provided His Son Jesus Christ as the means of Salvation for every man and quite simply as for me and my family we will firmly adheed to what God says. There will be no compromise regarding what the Bible states regarding God’s truth in my family.
“All Scripture is breathed by God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2nd Timothy 3:16-17
“Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under Heaven given among men that is required for us to be saved.” Acts 4:12
“And if it seems evil to you to serve Jehovah, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers have served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my house, we will serve Jehovah.” Joshua 24:15
So we will start here. What we see is mass deception on various scales. When the deception happens then there are tons of people who propagate the lies and further the deception. In fact such things often even happen in so-called churches where God’s truth is so watered down, that their status is either clearly evident to those who know Christ or their compromising has made the saving power of the Gospel (Ro. 1:16) virtually ineffective. Let’s look at a few examples of what has happened throughout the years.
The first example we will look at will be regarding Creation verses man’s lies of evolution. Clearly, as a Believer, and we have discussed this issue in detail in the past, as well as addressed this on radio shows, God is the Creator and the world was Created in six, twenty-four hour days (Gen. 1:31-2:1). This is an absolute fact. Yet word by word they have caused God’s Creation to go astray from this great truth, to me a very important truth, to the point where even those who believe what God’s Word clearly states are often embarrassed to the point where they won’t even speak up when the opportunity presents itself, due to knowing they will be ridiculed.
The second example we will look at will be regarding marriage and sexual immortality. Clearly, as we have discussed before, the Bible is not silent in any regard (1 Cor. 6:9-10), regarding what God’s states about these things. Yet man has changed what God has stated word by word. Now we live in a nation with rampant sexual immorality and unbiblical marriage, in contrary to what the Bible teaches.
The last example given will be regarding the doctrine of the Rapture. Years ago many churches used to preach a pretribulation Rapture doctrine, as the Bible clearly states, yet now it is becoming less and less prominent. Word by word the preachers have changed what God’s Word clearly teaches about the future of this world and the hope of all Believers (1 Thes. 5:11) and instead teach that Believers will go through the Tribulation. Why then, not also preach enthusiastically, as I am sure some do, for all of their listeners to dig a cave, buy supplies, etc., for the seven year period that they are going to endure? I ask you, why not?
“For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we watch or sleep, we should live together with Him.” 1st Thessalonians 5:9-10
Now I will give an example of how this is done. Our education system and our entertainment industry work very hard to slowly take and change the morals of this nation, as well as around the world. Recently I came across the word homosexual. The example sentence for the word was “Why are homosexuals discriminated against.” Right here might seem like not much, but word by word ideas are entered into the public’s mind and eventually ideas start corrupting those who are not Saved, even sometimes those who do know the Lord (2 Cor. 11:3-4).
To further on this topic, I remember attending a Southern Baptist Church (SBC) years ago when I was in high school. The SBC has decided that after Ellen had the first gay kiss on prime time television that ABC and Disney should be boycotted. Where are they now? Shouldn’t the boycott continue? Another example was the Roseanne television hit series, now apparently coming back with a redone show. If the witch on a broomstick at the end of the show, in the credits, wasn’t convincing enough that the show, which promotes moral relativism as the world’s education system does, wasn’t a big enough hint to the immorality, then after the show had captivated the hearts of their audience, probably some who knew they shouldn’t have been watching it, but it wasn’t that ‘bad’ in their minds; the appearance of characters whom had become part of the show suddenly, over time and slowly, come out of the closet as being gay and defying God’s standards. This was not the only popular show to do such things, Rosie O’Donnell comes to mind also.
As was stated, the purpose is not to break down the mechanisms used by such people to change the viewpoints of their listeners, the problem truly starts when the world doesn’t believe God and His Word. Yet, as many change agents across the country, have jobs were they press people into the predetermined position, manipulating them, the same mechanisms are introduced and effectively what we see now is what we see.
If you don’t think this is correct, a few things should point out otherwise. First, Elvis records were burned by Christian groups at massive events throughout the United States, yet it was only a little while longer that groups like Led Zeppelin hit the top of the music charts. Women and men wore bathing suits that covered much more of their bodies, compared to the skimpy or sometimes none, depending on where one lives nowadays. Homosexuality was deemed wrong by society, now it is accepted and gay marriage is the law of the land. I guarantee you, that given enough time, the transsexual movement will become even more profound and if accepted enough, something more sinister and evil, yes even worse, will be around the corner, waiting to creep in. The Sound of Music was the first movie that I am aware of to use a swear word. I would ponder whether or not it would be acceptable to even type that word in this article, compared to the garbage mouths in the entertainment industry nowadays, even our politicians are often foul mouthed, truly a reflection of our values as a nation, that are contrary to God. Yet I know that God’s standards don’t change, they are the same. Therefore it is still wrong to type such things, just as it were, even if it would seem so mild in comparison to what else is out there.
“For I, Jehovah, change not.” Malachi 3:6a
“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
Now I present something that has troubled my heart. I have watched on the sidelines regarding President Donald Trump. I even had a very dear Christian brother who had convinced me to vote for him, under an argument that I normally don’t accept, the lesser of two evils. Certainly Hillary Clinton was a bad choice, a very bad one, yet I don’t ever vote for those who support abortion anyway. I never did get around to voting for Donald Trump, but I have been watching him carefully since his inauguration.
Certainly there are a lot of things I agree with him on and applaud him on. Fair trade, getting rid of the Paris Accord, etc. I’m not against a wall with Mexico, countries have the right to their borders, yet I also have seen other things in regards to the amount of Goldman Sachs individuals, other named heads of departments, as well as just the overall immorality. Did I expect for America to elect a Christian in office? Of course not, but in a country that already appears by all means to be under God’s judgment, we certainly should exercise caution regarding what we are doing in the world and in our own society. For instance, additional funding for abortion is not a step in the right direction. I stated beforehand and I will state it again. If America wants to be great again then America needs to repent. Quite honestly we, as a nation, are setting ourselves up for a heap of trouble when God decides to no longer be patient and merciful, whether this is before or after the Rapture happens.
“And after all this, if you do not obey Me, but walk contrary to Me, then I also will walk contrary to you in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins.” Leviticus 26:27-28
Remember God doesn’t change, neither does His character.
Now if I were to tie in the word by word, that has been explained here, I must say that recently everything seemed to click. A theory has been developed, one that will either hold water or not, regarding what appears to be a deception on a biblical scale. What we might be seeing is one of the biggest deceptions in all of history, one that could or just as well could not, have something to do with the rise of the Antichrist. As a clear disclaimer, I am not proclaiming that this is going to be or that this theory is completely correct, but I am issuing it as a warning that something that doesn’t seem right, probably isn’t right and by time it becomes apparent whether President Trump will make the history books as one of the best Presidents of all time or if he turns out to be a monstrous man, it will be too late. The inklings of evidence have begun to show up and after over a year sitting on the sidelines, trying to see if I could clearly see a problem with the overall current administration, there is now enough evidence to present this theory, that while appears to be of such a great deception that it would seem impossible, I think of it in terms as a reminder of how the devil will deceive the entire world during the “time of Jacob’s trouble.” (Jer. 30:7)
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against rulers, against authorities, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.” Ephesians 6:12
“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who leads the whole world astray; he was cast out onto the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:9
Will not during that time the deception be so great that the one who is literally possessed by Satan, the Antichrist, will at first seem genuine in wanting to fix the world’s problem, to help humanity? Think about it, this man is going to cause peace in the Middle East, he is going to fix the world’s financial problems, he is going to be a great leader. Truly, as a student of history, having studied Hitler, Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Mussolini and Pol Pot, I can tell you that they all started off the same, men with extreme ideologies. There needs to be something different about them, they have to be charismatic, a leader, normally those who end up turning out to be horrific dictators, start with a movement, unfortunately much like we have seen. This isn’t the first time, certainly former President Obama would also have fit this bill, yet he did not turn out to be a dictator. When is the last time a dictator turns out to be someone like former President Bush or President Clinton? Generally no, it is always someone who is a bit extreme.
“And he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. And in the middle of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the grain offering to cease. And on a corner will be abominations that cause horror, even until the end. And that which was decreed shall be poured out on the desolate.” Daniel 9:27
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have come to the full, a king shall stand forth, having fierce countenance and understanding sinister schemes. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power. And he shall destroy extraordinarily, and he shall prosper, and work, and destroy the mighty and the holy people. And also through his cunning he will cause deceit to prosper in his hand. And he will magnify himself in his heart, and through prosperity shall destroy many. He shall also stand up against the Ruler of rulers, but he shall be broken in pieces without hands.” Daniel 8:23-25
I admit there is a bit of entertainment to the whole ordeal. The fake news and a sitting President yelling at news companies that they are fake news, really states what a lot of Americans already believe. Yet what if that is part of the deception, what if it goes so deep that the media is in on it, setting up America for the fall?
When it came to 9/11 the fundamental question of why fighter jets came from across the country, rather than from local bases, was what raised my questions regarding the official story, likewise, when Henry Ford had addressed the issue of the lack of Americans understanding the federal reserve banking system, I was intrigued by that idea also and looked into his quote that I had found. Could it be that what we are witnessing is truly perhaps the biggest deception placed on the American people and indeed the people of the world? Could the presidency of Donald Trump be a huge deception of biblical proportions, perhaps even regarding the rise of the Antichrist in some way or another?
I’ve seen evidence contrary to what was spoken on in the campaign trail. Yet with what President don’t we see this after they get elected. Remember former President Bush and his ‘read my lips, no new taxes’ quote. Really it would be a shock and surprise if a President actually kept all or even most of what they campaigned on, thus American politics, thus politics in general. So I watched as missiles flew into Syria, I watched as more weapons were sold to anti-Russia countries, I watched as NATO became more aggressive, I watched as more troops went to Afghanistan, I even watched as the swamp was getting put into positions of power.
On the other hand I watched as the Trans Pacific Partnership deal was shredded, I watched (and am still watching) as the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton are under federal investigation. I watched as the federal transgender rules put in place by President Obama regarding the schools became garbage. I watched as the Paris Accord was backed out of and not signed by the United States. I watch as trade tariffs are coming into effect to bring back American jobs, as well as the immigration issues being addressed, etc. Very confusing, some good things, some bad things. In all reality, some really good things and some really bad things. Just as with 9/11, the Federal Reserve, etc., there comes a point where, for Trump supporters, one could say that I am on the wrong side of the fence. No more fence straddling, but rather I wish to be proven wrong, I hope this country gets better, I hope things are not as bad as I am proposing they could be. I hope that all goes well and our economy becomes booming, not on bubbles, but on real American wealth. I wish I am proven wrong and would be happy the day that someone says, see ‘I told you so’, but with good conscience I must go forth and present this theory that something is wrong here and it may be very detrimental to the United States, in fact it could possibly, not saying it will or would, but could possibly have something to do with the rise of the Antichrist government.
When I thought that the evidence was clear that there was something wrong, hardcore Trump supporters and advocates would present a theory, that while somewhat fascinating, was their reason to excuse Trump’s behavior for the betterment of America. I’ve never been for and as a Christian can never agree with the do evil that good may come mentality that some hold. No rather do good to those who hate you, not evil.
“Woe to those who draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin with cart ropes; who say, Let Him hurry and hasten His work, so that we may see it; and let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near and come, so that we may know it! Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and understanding in their own sight! Woe to those mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mix strong drink; who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away justice from the righteous! Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame consumes the chaff, so their root shall be like rottenness, and their blossoms shall go up like dust, because they have cast away the Law of Jehovah of Hosts, and despised the Word of the Holy One of Israel.” Isaiah 5:18-24
“You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who abuse you and persecute you, that you may become sons of your Father in Heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not also the tax collectors so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in Heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:43-48
A lot of the alternative media was discussing various theories for why President Trump was doing these things. For instance the appointment of so many Goldman Sachs representatives was so that Trump could use their own system against them. The massive stock market and debt bubbles in this country is so that Trump can create as much wealth as possible before taking out the Federal Reserve and ultimately making America great again, basically a landing pad of real wealth, real jobs, when the economy bottom falls out. They would be quick to point at the success of the supposed summit coming up with Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump. Truly either a situation that would deserve the Nobel Peace Prize, if done correctly or would likely lead into immediate war, as the newest appointees of the President, getting rid of seemingly decent people, in terms of man, and replacing them with known neocons and bad people. That for me was the last straw.
Years ago I had listened to Alex Jones quite a bit and read news from his website. While I didn’t agree with everything he stated, quite simply he was spot on on many things. However, now I see that if it doesn’t line up with the Trump narrative then these same things spoken of in the past do not get proper attention. Case in point, google YouTube videos of the alternative media’s take on John Bolton and see, while there is criticism, that criticism by hardcore Trump supporters is mild in comparison to what it was years ago when Bolton was in power in the Bush administration. In fact the excuse given by Infowars, of which they have a huge audience, was that Trump was trying to show that he is tough to North Korea to bring peace. What? Is not already peace coming? I don’t buy it.
Yet these people have never had the whole picture. While they are quick to point out the history and oftentimes reality of things passed by Congress, the evil embedded within the system, how things really work, etc., when it comes to things from the Bible they certainly are fully compromised. They do not do the work of Christ, despite often claiming to be Christians, in fact their doctrine doesn’t have the morals of God’s Word as their hate filled speech is full of profanity and blatant evil, oftentimes digging deep into the depths of Satan, contrary to the Bible (Rev. 2:24). In fact they vehemently criticize Christians who believe in Creation, as their human nature theories can’ t address a Biblical worldview, and go one step further, in all cases I have seen of the ‘big ones’ of the alternative media, in denying that the Rapture is true, instead lumping this doctrine into another conspiracy of the elite. While supporting Trump, even Alex Jones will compare Trump with the prophet Moses and state to his listeners that he is using the new world order system against them to create a new ‘new world order’. Hmmm…I don’t know the truth in such a matter, but realize that making America great again and changing the world order into something else is highly suspicious. Does not one exist during the Tribulation, are they ever in full agreement?
“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, elect, and faithful. Then he said to me, The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and consume her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:12-18
“And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron. Inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters all things, and like iron that crushes all these, it will break in pieces and crush. And whereas you saw the feet and the toes, partly of potters’ clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided. But there shall be in it the strength of iron, just as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly broken. And as you saw the iron mixed with the miry clay, they shall become mixed with the seed of men. But they shall not cleave to one another, even as iron does not fellowship with clay. And in the days of these kings, the God of Heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other people. It shall break in pieces and bring all these kingdoms to an end, and it shall stand forever.” Daniel 2:40-44
“And after this I was looking in the night visions. And, behold, the fourth beast was frightening and terrifying, and very strong! And it had great iron teeth. It devoured, and broke in pieces, and stamped what was left with its feet. And it was different from all the beasts before it; and it had ten horns. I was contemplating the horns. And behold, another little horn came up among them, and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things. I watched until the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of Days sat, whose robe was white as snow and the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was like flames of fire, its wheels like burning fire. A stream of fire went out and came out from before Him. A thousand thousands served Him, and a vast innumerable number stood before Him. The judgment was set and the books were opened. Then I was watching because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke. I was watching until the beast was killed, and his body was destroyed and given to the burning flame. As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away. Yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time. I saw in the night visions. And behold, one like the Son of Man came with the clouds of the heavens. And He came to the Ancient of Days. And they brought Him near before Him. And dominion was given to Him, and glory, and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. I, Daniel, was distressed in my spirit within my body, and the visions of my head troubled me. And I came near one of those who stood by and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me and made me know the interpretation of the things. These great beasts which are four, are four kings which shall rise up out of the earth. But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever. Then I wanted to know the truth of the fourth beast, which was different from all of the others, very frightening, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze; which devoured and broke in pieces, and trampled what was left with its feet, also of the ten horns that were on its head, and the other which came up, and before whom three fell, even that horn that had eyes, and a mouth speaking great things, whose appearance was greater than his fellows. I was watching, and the same horn made war with the saints and prevailed against them, until the Ancient of Days came. And judgment was given to the saints of the Most High, and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. And he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall trample it down and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings; they shall rise, and another shall rise after them. And he shall be different from the first, and he shall abase three kings. And he shall speak words against the Most High, and shall continually harass the saints of the Most High. And he shall intend to change times and law. And they shall be given into his hand for a period of a time and times and one half time. But the court shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy until the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heavens shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. And all dominions shall serve and obey Him. Thus far is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts terrified me much, and my countenance changed in me. But I kept the matter in my heart.” Daniel 7:7-28
So when Mike Pompeo is named by Trump to be the Secretary of State, I must admit that all I can say about Pompeo is he certainly fits into the CIA. In fact, that is what he was and is what you would expect. But when I saw the alternative media playing up Gina Haspel, the first women to run the CIA and with their original articles, instead of telling people that she was in charge of the secret CIA torture blacksites, they touted that this defied those who say Trump doesn’t like women, the whole thing began to stink. I made my choice on what side of the fence I was going to be on. To make matters worse, John Bolton came into view and then there are those alternative freedom minded people still out there, who haven’t changed their viewpoints, who declare exactly what appears to be happening, that President Trump seems to be creating a war cabinet.
Well just how deep does this go? Now armed with some evidence and realizing that these main talking heads of the alternative media could no longer hold off my decision with their rationalizing of Trump’s bad behavior for the ultimate good, I was off in my search to see what was going on. Then I ran across some very disturbing things. Inklings of a potential deception of biblical proportions became clearer and clearer, with still not knowing it, but neither will the public before it is too late or clearly debunked. No one will know whether or not President Trump is truly for the people or against, until it is too late. We will either wake up seeing the disastrous consequences having happened to a society that is deserving of God’s just Judgment, if the Rapture hasn’t happened yet, or we will see the wheels of the greatness of America turning forcefully, rebuilding wealth that truly ended with our grandparents generations, about the same time they quite burning those Elvis records, after they had been pressed word by word to deny God’s standards and truth laid out in the Holy Scriptures.
Some have suggested that the elite, those who are really in control, decided that they needed a Republican to get gun control, a Democrat wouldn’t work. Has not some of the comments that Trump has made caused this newest word by word idea in America where states are now taking guns from those who are deemed dangerous, with supposed due process that the average man could never afford to undertake? Do you really think they are going to get rid of the Second Amendment at this moment? Would it not take a monumental crisis first? Rather, get rid of it selectively, by those whom the government hates, those on their secret watchlists, those like me who pry off the lids of their lies and go against the official narrative. That is certainly in play at this moment.
Others suggested that Hillary Clinton was never meant to win the Whitehouse. They knew Bernie Sanders probably could have beat Trump, so they allowed Hillary to run, using the media supposedly against him, in order that Trump would win. While this certainly may not be the case, it is interesting enough to note that they are tons of pictures out there of Trump with the Clintons and they have friendly relations together. Yet the media, this seems to be where the potential mass deception is at.
The media has been largely controlled by four corporations for quite some time. Certainly the distrust of the media in many regards is well known, at least suspect by many. The internet is a different ball park, a large majority is controlled by a handful, but there are also alternative news options. The rise of these alternative news options was the fuel that accelerated the disbelief in the mainstream media. Then again, the American people being lied to time and time again certainly didn’t help. What happens if there is collusion amongst those in the mainstream media, as well as the popular talking heads in the alternative media. While Twitter played an active role in allowing Donald Trump to get his viewpoints out there, without censorship, in all reality the media and their nonstop coverage also played a very active role.
Certainly it could be said that without non stop coverage of Donald Trump, even negative coverage, which was most networks solution, we could use the adage that no publicity is bad publicity. Even the regular news anchors of major networks were wondering why they were covering Donald Trump all day long. Could it be that this still nonstop barrage of anti-Trump news by most networks, with the exception of Fox News, could actually be part of a huge deception being placed by the global elite unto an unsuspecting population? The American people, especially so called conservatives, have been upset by getting blundered time and time again. With an American rising to the scene, that is Trump, going against or appearing to go against the establishment; and the media responding, as one would properly think they would, against Trump, this would only further the movement and accelerate the popularity of the built in rebellious American people, a trait that this country has held from its inauguration.
With this being said, most of the alternative media pushed this exact narrative and promoted Trump by pointing out how the mainstream media were and are against him. This only further activated those who sit on the benches to begin to push for Donald Trump to become President. After all Hillary Clinton, the alternative, was known as not being trustworthy and more of the same establishment that we have seen time after time again, even many Democrats do not like Clinton. Now if Donald Trump truly is the real deal, truly a man who is anti establishment, draining the swamp, etc., then we have nothing to worry about. Yet the concern here is that this is part of a potential deception of biblical proportions, perhaps one that could lead into the rise of the Antichrist government or not.
The markings of deception are starting to become clear. As a note it should be mentioned that, with a stern warning as All Will Stand does not make predictions about who/what/how regarding who the Antichrist is, etc., a current large push for peace deal with Israel has gotten new teeth. Certainly we know that the Antichrist confirms a covenant regarding Israel (Dan. 9:27), so as a Believer this is going to rightfully so cause me to ponder what ulterior motives the administration of the United States might be involved in. Do we know if the United States will be involved in this? The Bible is silent regarding aiding countries, we do know that Israel will be involved.
With the Trump administration we have seen Jerusalem recognized as the capital of Israel, rightfully so. Yet, as mentioned in a previous article, Israel had to make some not-yet-known concessions to President Trump in order for that to have happened. Personally I would never consider any motive other than simply doing what is right and recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the embassy there, which would just make sense. For this is God’s land that they are dealing with and the Holy Scriptures is not silent on those who divide up God’s land.
“I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on account of My people and My possession, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; and divided up My land.” Joel 3:2
Some interesting things regarding Jared Kushner, the President’s son-in-law who is at the center of brokering a peace deal with Israel.
1) He is Jewish and practices Judaism.
2). He owns 666 Fifth Ave. in New York City, New York.
3.) He has so far gotten further in peace negotiations within the Middle East than any other predecessor.
4.) He has great relations with Benjamin Netanyahu, who used to be friends with his father and stayed at his house when he was a child.
Now as far as I know, Kushner could be ousted from his position of power at any time. This seems to be quite popular to have purges nowadays. Truly at one point in the future, someone connected with a peace covenant and Israel will be the Antichrist. I doubt anyone will know for certain prior and I assume that the Rapture will likely have happened around that time that the covenant is confirmed.
Also it could be that 100 years from now, when we no longer traverse on this earth and are with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8), that then the Antichrist rises. We do not know the day nor the hour, nor will we. Certainly a man on a website is not going to be able to proclaim such things, when Jesus doesn’t even know (Matt. 24:36).
To add credence to this potential mass deception, it should be noted that a largely underreported article appeared in The Guardian that had a former Google software engineer who created software that analyzed the algorithms on YouTube, also owned by Google. These algorithms during the election year showed what videos were recommended by YouTube, a very popular website, with searches for both Trump and Clinton. Despite the claims of censorship, which likely has happened in the past to Infowars, Infowars was promoted as the number one in searches for Trump. In fact Trump was promoted over and over again in the sheer number and volume. Make no mistake this was not a small thing, as Infowars alone was promoted by YouTube over 15,000,000,000 times with just searches relating to Trump in 2016 alone! Make no mistake, and I sincerely hope that Trump turns out to be a great President who will bring good jobs back to this country and fix many of the ills of our society, but this is solid evidence that there appears to be collusion amongst both the mainstream media, the online media and the alternative media to promote Trump. This and other tidbits, point to Donald Trump being the choice of the so-called swamp, of whom it is now apparent that President Trump is putting in positions of high power. How does one drain the swamp by placing them in positions of high power (Eph. 6:12)?
Moving along, it also must be noted that Trump’s penthouse in NYC is full of occultic items, some that have to deal with the rising of Apollo. Does this fit into the conspiracy theory that America was created as a free country, by those who are in positions of high power, in order to allow it to become what it has, then destroy it and allow the Antichrist system arise? Certainly things would only be in God’s timing not man’s, but it is of interest that our Capital was setup in an evil manner, supposedly the United States is the Phoenix rising and out of the ashes of this country the new world order will arise. I also take note of the 1988 article from the Economist magazine that shows a Phoenix standing on burning American currency with a coin around its neck, stating that a new currency will come about on or around 2018, with 2018 being the year on the coin on the Phoenix’s neck. I could also point out that the The Temple in Zion have a golden coin issued that has Trump on the backside. Why would they think that Trump would rebuild the Temple? Quoting from them…, “The Trump Declaration must continue with a declaration of the role of the Jews in establishing the Temple in its place. Only then will President Trump’s international ambitions come true in the Middle East.”
“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He is now restraining, until it is raised from out of the midst.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:7
“The burden of the Word of Jehovah for Israel, says Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the peoples all around, and it shall also be against Judah in the siege against Jerusalem. And in that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples; all who lift it shall be slashed; cut to pieces. And all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it. In that day I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness, says Jehovah. And I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the people with blindness. And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in Jehovah of Hosts, their God. In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire among cut grain. And they shall devour all the peoples all around, on the right hand and on the left. And Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, in Jerusalem. Jehovah also shall save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem may not be magnified above Judah. In that day Jehovah shall defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And he who is feeble among them in that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of Jehovah before them. And it shall be in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and supplication. And they shall look on Me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they shall be bitter over Him, like the bitterness over the firstborn.” Zechariah 12:1-10
What we do know is that at some point in the future the Antichrist will arise (2 Thes. 2:9). We do know that there will be “the time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jer. 30:7), we do know that there will be a one-world currency (Rev. 13), we do know the Rapture will happen prior to these events (Rev. 4:1), we do know that most of the world’s population will die . We also know that multitudes will be Saved during that time, but that by doing so they will become martyrs of Christ. Furthermore we know that in order for these things to happen, logically some ground work would be laid.
“For, lo, I am beginning to bring evil on the city which is called by My name; and should you be found clean and free from guilt? You shall not be without guilt, for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, says Jehovah of Hosts. Therefore prophesy against them all these Words, and say to them, Jehovah shall roar from on high, and utter His voice from His holy habitation. He shall mightily roar over His dwelling place. He shall give a shout, like those who tread out grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. A roaring noise shall come to the ends of the earth; for Jehovah has a controversy with the nations; He will enter into judgment with all flesh. He will give those who are wicked to the sword, says Jehovah. Thus says Jehovah of Hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, and a great tempest shall be roused up from the recesses of the earth. And in that day the slain of Jehovah shall be from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be mourned, nor gathered, nor buried. They shall be as dung on the ground. Howl, you shepherds, and cry! Wallow in the ashes, you majestic ones of the flock! For the days of your slaughter and of your scattering are fulfilled; and you shall fall like a delightful vessel. And the shepherds shall have no way to flee, nor the majestic ones of the flock to escape. A voice of the cry of the shepherds, and a howling of the majestic ones of the flock shall be heard; for Jehovah has spoiled their pasture, and the peaceful pastures are cut down because of the fierce anger of Jehovah. He has left His den like a lion; for their land is wasted at the presence of His fierce violence, and before His fierce anger.” Jeremiah 25:29-38
Truly I believe, rightfully so, that every generation of Believers should have had the hope of the immediate appearing of Christ, the Rapture, to take them to be with the Lord. I do ask how in a seven year period a one would currency and other prophetic events could have happened in places like Latin America in the 1600’s. Yet with the knowledge of man at that time, no one would have considered it, therefore Believers are always right in their zeal to be watching and ready, as we are commanded to do so.
“But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you sorrow not as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the Word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a shouted command, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together at the same time with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
“Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord comes. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief comes, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be dug through. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man comes at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24:42-44
Here we are, living in a time where the technology exists, Israel once again exists, peace is trying to be had, people are behaving more and more as in the days of Noah, and we have these strange movements in political systems around the world. While a lot of people would be quick to point out the great thing of people so-called waking up to how the world really works, I would also be quick to point out that it would make more sense for the masses to realize corruption on a huge scale, powers behind the scenes of their respective government, in order for them to accept the Antichrist as the so-called solution to their countries.
“But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and did not realize until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two will be in the field: one is taken and the other is left. Two will be grinding at the mill: one is taken and the other is left.” Matthew 24:37-41
While I firmly believe that nothing else, absolutely nothing, needs to happen prophetically before the Rapture, it should be noted that it would make sense, with the United States holding the world’s reserve currency, thus the source of our ill gained wealth, that a tragedy of huge proportions could happen that would destroy the economic systems of not only this country but the entire world. With that said, it would make sense that out of that chaos a man would arise who would deceive the world, the Antichrist, along with the False Prophet, who would fix these problems. Certainly there seems to be no need at the moment. Yet this could just as easily be something that hastens immediately after the Rapture of the Saints, not something that would necessarily have to happen prior.
Does one expect that the mass deception regarding end times events, the Tribulation, the Antichrist world government system is just all going to appear out of nowhere? Would it not make sense that these things would already be ongoing, just not yet unveiled, because it is not in man’s timing, but in God’s timing? I have often said that if it were up to man, we would already be gone, done with. Does not the Holy Spirit restrain men?
“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 unveiled, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is honored, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, declaring of himself that he is God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, that he may be unveiled in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He is now restraining, until it is raised from out of the midst. And then the lawless one will be unveiled, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who are perishing, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-12
Just how does America expect to be made great again, without God, without repentance? If one were to diligently consider, would America be primed for God’s mercy, raining wealth down upon us all, or for God’s just Judgment? Does a country that uses a rotten international banking scheme to control the world, to overthrow countries, to use our means as a method of repression, rather than helping, deserve to be judged by the Most High? Does our country that has killed way over 50,000,000 babies via abortion deserve to be judged by the Most High? Does the country that houses the Federal Reserve system that financed World War 2, Mao and Stalin, deserve to be judged by the Most High? Does a country that thinks it is alright to walk contrary to God and His standards, while proclaiming to be His people, deserve to be judged by the Most High? How well did that go for Israel, as they clung onto their idols of Baal? Woe to the country that forgets God. Worse yet, the country that claims to be a Christian people yet walk contrary to Him. Will He not walk contrary to us or will He rain down blessings and make this country great again?
“I create the fruit of the lips: Peace, peace, to him who is far off, and to him who is near, says Jehovah; and I will heal him. But the wicked are like the troubled sea, which cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no peace, says my God, to the wicked.” Isaiah 57:19-21
No man knows the future, yet when I see the possibility of a grand deception of biblical proportions potentially taking place, it would only seem to be wise to act as a watchman and warn the people of potential disaster. While I hope to be proven wrong and will gladly accept it, if such a sinister scheme equating the destruction of America is on the verge of being effected, then it should be pointed out. What I do know is all will stand before God Almighty (Ro. 14:12) and unless you repent and by faith believe into the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, you will be cast forever into the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:15). Without Jesus as your Savior, your name is not written in the Book of Life.
“When I say to the wicked, You shall die the death, and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul. Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die. Because you did not give him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand. Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous should not sin, and he does not sin, he shall live life because he took warning; and you have delivered your soul.” Ezekiel 3:18-21
As explained prior, the greatest deception of all is that people are being pushed away from God’s truth, the Gospel and that is an eternal deception. They might be able to trick us in regards to what goes on in this world politically, but do not let them trick you regarding your soul. God is merciful and will forgive, He will grant Salvation to all that call upon Him (Acts 2:21), through Jesus Christ His Son (John 14:6). This same Jesus who died on the Cross for your sins and who rose again from the dead to sit at the right hand of the Father (Ro. 8:34).
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.” Romans 5:6
“Then Peter said to them, Repent, and let every one of you be immersed in the name of Jesus Christ to the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
“Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom Heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, of which God has spoken through the mouth of all His holy prophets since the past ages.” Acts 3:19-21
“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has established a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has appointed. He has given assurance of this to everyone by raising Him from the dead.” Acts 17:30-31
If such a scheme is upon the America people, with whatever method might be used, understand that the only potential solution would be for the American people to repent and ask for the mercies of God. For America to be made great again, not in the eyes of man, but in the eyes of the Lord. For then, whatever He who Created us deems appropriate would be worthy of all people. Certainly better for us to accept fault, repent and have the mercy of God, even if our country falls, rather than reap the horrors for our sins, by refusing to repent. Better a meal with our family under the warmth of our homes, without all of the bells and whistles, rather than a broken down society where lawlessness and death our outside our doors. Where men are being carted away to these camps that no one talks about anymore, when those whose names are on watchlists disappear in the night, of which is seldom mentioned anymore.
“Come now and let us reason together, says Jehovah: Though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18
Better to serve the Lord and truly seek His mercy with a repentant heart then continue to rebel against the Most High. Yet I fear for now that will be the case with America, that we continue to rebel as a society and will not change. For those who know the Lord, know that He cares about you (1 Pet. 5:7) and is your great help in times of distress. If our society is being tricked, understand that God certainly has mercy on those who have a contrite heart, those who are truly Saved and have repented. Understand that either way individually we will all stand before God, we are responsible for ourselves, we can not wait on society to fix its ails, Salvation is on an individual basis.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear when the earth changes, when mountains are slipping into the midst of the seas. Let its waters roar and foam; let the mountains shake with the swelling of it. Selah. There is a river whose streams cause rejoicing in the city of God, the consecrated place of the tabernacle of the Most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved; God shall help her at the break of day. The nations raged, the kingdoms were shaken; He uttered His voice, the earth melted. Jehovah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of Jehovah, who has made desolations on the earth; who makes wars to cease to the ends of the earth; He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two; He burns the chariots in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God! I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Jehovah of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.” Psalms 46
“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.” Psalms 51:17
“And the devil, who led them astray, was cast into the Lake of Fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heavens fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God. And books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, out of the things which were written in the books. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one, according to their works. And Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire.” Revelation 20:10-15
