THE CUTTING EDGE
The world is about to see the ultimate lie from Satan and his
cohorts of world deception. An unholy trinity, with the devil posing as God,
along with his false christ and false spiritual anointing, will produce a master
lie, a lie so captivating and breathtaking that the very elect will reel with
astonishment. This final lie must be the grandest thing that Satan has ever
created. It will be his masterpiece of all time and eternity.
Apostle Paul spoke of this lie as he warned us about the coming "mystery of iniquity". Along with describing this ultimate evil, he spoke of the "Restrainer" and His being "set aside" before this lie could materialize to its coming height. Read Paul's words carefully.
"And now you know what is restraining him from being revealed at this time; it is so that he may be manifested (revealed) in his own appointed time. For the mystery of lawlessness (that hidden principle of rebellion against constituted authority) is already at work in the world, but it is restrained only until he who restrains is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one (the antichrist) will be revealed and the Lord Jesus will slay him with the breath of His mouth and bring him to an end by His appearing at His coming.
The coming [of the lawless one, the antichrist] is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of [pretended] miracles and signs and delusive marvels--[all of them] lying wonders-- And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved." (2 Thessalonians 2:6-11).
The Master Of This Lie
It's very important that we understand the master of this lie. Antichrist is
called the "mystery of iniquity",
but it is clearly stated that his "coming is
after the working of Satan."; he
is a design of Satan in the similar sense that the Messiah or Christ was the
"begotten of God." In other words, Satan is about to produce a "false
Christ" (Matthew 24:24) by using his "false anointing" resulting
in the "greatest lie in human history." Satan is an imitator and this
will be his final imitation. A masquerading god, with a masquerading Christ
accompanied by a masquerading False Prophet, will mesmerize the world.
Satan's masquerading of this final lie will be accompanied with incredible miracles. The apostle stated that his coming will be "with all power and signs and lying wonders". Satan is a powerful creature, second only to God Himself and he can produce paranormal happenings that will totally convince the unsuspecting. Notice that Paul called his activities, "lying wonders". This clearly describes all the so-called miracles of Satan; they are not supernatural, but paranormal. God alone is supernatural (above or beyond nature. . . miraculous, spiritual - Chambers English Dictionary, W&R Chambers, Ltd, Edinburgh, 1990, p. 1474.), but Satan can only produce a paranormal (abnormal psychologically, not susceptible to normal explanation - Chambers English Dictionary, W & ft Chambers, LTD, Edinburgh, 1990, p. 1047.). Satan's activities are nothing but clever tricks and masquerading lies that deceive. They appear to be supernatural, but under close scrutiny they are nothing but hidden lies. Yes, they will have the look of being supernatural, but they are distortions of reality.
Let us examine the incredible Satanic "lying wonders" planned to immediately precede the appearance of Antichrist.
"The Spirit of Peace is hovering close to humanity, seeking opportunity to make His Presence felt. The Spirit of Peace is not an abstract concept but a potent Individual, wielding forces hitherto unfamiliar to our planet. Great Forces are awaiting the hour when They can function as the Liberators and the Deliverers of mankind. But the door to Their entrance must be opened by humanity itself and it will be opened by a united act of the will, expressed through some formula of words and expressed in sound." ["The Externalisation of the Hierarchy", p. 173; Emphasis added]
Minutes before Antichrist arises, some seemingly supernatural sound will be heard, and spiritually felt, by everyone on the planet, simultaneously. At no other moment in world history will so many people be so devastatingly impacted at the same moment! This powerful sound is designed to get people looking outward and upward -- even running out of office buildings to look skyward -- to see what caused that heart-felt, soul-jarring sound. Images of Antichrist will appear all over the world simultaneously, speaking to each ethnic group in their own language. The true "Signs and Wonders" will have begun, and will be terribly impactful, leading many precious souls directly into Hell.
When this physical - spiritual "sound" hits, people's souls will literally shake like a bowl of jelly. The Bible says that God is going to shake everything that can be shaken, so that those things which cannot be shaken will remain [Haggai 2:6, 21; Joel 3:16; Isaiah 13:13]. Too many Christians today are taking for granted that they will stand before the onslaught of the time of judgment when Antichrist shall finally arise. Too many Christians are so nonchalant about the appearance of Antichrist, that they may not be spiritually ready for the unbelievable, unprecedented soul-jarring experience. If you are not truly Biblically saved, if you are not righteous in Jesus' Righteousness, and if you are not keeping a "short list" of daily sins committed, you may not be as protected against this unbelievable soul-jarring experience as you might believe. This is not the moment in world history to be a lukewarm, or "carnal" Christian!
Make no mistake about this fact: the very arising of Antichrist is God's Judgment, the beginning of His most fearsome and furious judgments.
"And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie". (2 Thessalonians 2:11). This lie" is a definite article or "THE Lie" by which he deceives the world. It is the ultimate lie. While Satan is the 'Father of Lies" and every untruth originates with him, this lie is more. Satan is masterminding an unprecedented master lie that will continue to grow and escalate until it replaces the God of the Bible. It will also replace all dependency on absolute Biblical truth as we now know it with a new occult theology. Jesus Christ will be preached and presented as the same historical Jesus of church history, but with a "new paradigm" of understanding. The working of the Holy Spirit will undergo such a radical reinterpretation that there will be only vague similarity.
White Magic In The Church
I believe the false spiritual anointing now being manifested all around the
world is the first step in producing this "final lie." When you look
closely at this false spiritual anointing permeating Charismatic Churches, it
becomes abundantly clear that it is nothing but White Magic dressed up in a
"christian" garb. All throughout Scripture, Satan is seen using white
magic, i.e., using his power for the "benefit" of mankind. This has
been a clever trick or deceptive tactic of the enemy of righteousness. Satan
hides behind the difference between black magic and white magic. In producing
both expressions of his dark nature, much of the world never sees his presence
in the many expressions of White Magic. As has been often said, "White
magic is the beautiful side of evil" A witch will argue you to the end
that her white magic has nothing to do with Satan -- she serves Lucifer, she
insists! The truth is that White Magic is only beautiful to those who are deceived;
unfortunately, these deceived will never realize this side of the White Throne
Judgment Seat that they were serving Satan all along.
Look at the effort of Satan to deceive Jesus Christ during His forty days of fasting.
"Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cost thyself down. For it is written. He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in [their] hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy fool against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him' (Matthew 4:5-11).
The Scripture then affirms that He was in the wilderness all forty days (Mark
1:12-13), that the devil left him in the wilderness when the temptation was
finished (Matthew 4:11), and that Jesus returned from the wilderness in the
power of the Spirit (Luke 4:14). Yes, Satan had tempted Jesus from the pinnacle
of the temple and from an exceeding high mountain during those same forty days.
There can be little argument that the devil used his only paranormal powers
(White Magic) to endeavor in this defeated effort to deceive the Son of God;
how else could he show Jesus the kingdoms of the world to promise them to Him
if He would only worship Satan?
Philip, the evangelist, faced off with White Magic in the eighth chapter of the Book of Acts, Simon the sorcerer was apparently experiencing a revival of religion in this city of Samaria, The writer Luke tells us all about Simon.
"But there was a man named Simon, who had formerly practiced magic arts in the city to the utter amazement of the Samaritan nation, claiming that he himself was an extraordinary and distinguished person. They all paid earnest attention to him, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is that exhibition of the power of God which is called great (intense). And they were attentive and made much of him, because for a long time he had amazed and bewildered and dazzled them with his skill in magic arts." (Acts 8:9-11; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
His reputation in the city was, "This man is the great power of God." Does that not sound strikingly familiar to our present host of new Charismatics?
White Magic In The First Testament
The Old Testament has many examples of different expressions of White Magic. Moses met these powers head-on as he dealt with Pharaoh of Egypt. The sorcerers of Pharaoh's court could produce serpents with their enchantments.
"Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. For they cast down every man his rod and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods." (Exodus 7:11-12).
In every case, the truth of God's supernatural power was quick to judge and
consume the devil's substitute. All God needed was His man full of His Omnipotent
Holy Spirit power to carry out the deed of judgment upon the White Magic practitioner.
The two sons of Aaron tried their skill in using White Magic in the tabernacle of Israel almost as soon as God had established the priesthood.
"And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, each took his censer and put fire in it, and put incense on it, and offered strange and unholy fire before the Lord, as He had not commanded them. And there came forth fire from before the Lord and killed them, and they died before the Lord. Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord meant when He said, I [and My will, not their own] will be acknowledged as hallowed by those who come near Me, and before all the people I will be honored. And Aaron said nothing.
Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, sons of Uzziel uncle of Aaron, and said to them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp. So they drew near and carried them in their undertunics [stripped of their priestly vestments] out of the camp, as Moses had said. And Moses said to Aaron and Eleazar and Ithamar, his sons [the father and brothers of the two priests whom God had slain for offering false fire], Do not uncover your heads or let your hair go loose or tear your clothes, lest you die also and lest God's wrath should come upon all the congregation; but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the Lord has kindled. And you shall not go out from the door of the Tent of Meeting, lest you die, for the Lord's anointing oil is upon you. And they did according to Moses' word. (Leviticus 10:1-7; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary).
The very idea that Aaron's sons -- two of God's anointed priests -- would use Satan's substitute before the altar of God Jehovah was grievous blasphemy and was met with God's immediate deadly judgment. Fire from the Lord devoured them. Moses would not allow their father, Aaron, or their brothers to grieve over their death. They could not even leave the Tabernacle of God to attend the burial. My friends, it is a serious thing to call White Magic the work of the Holy Spirit! When you see Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, and Benny Hinn performing with occult power and teaching occult doctrine, in the guise of Christianity, you can see the ultimate danger in which they are placing their very souls!
White Magic Transforms Satan's Ministers
It's overwhelmingly grievous to realize that Satan can transform himself and
his ministers into powerful persons of remarkable charisma. We are not dealing
with a back room filled with smoke, a witch's brew, or some slight of hand magician.
Black magic has always been an ugly thing that Satan used to paint a picture
of how he wanted himself conceived. Then, he masquerades with his 'beautiful"
side so he can deceive and then damn the multitudes. White Magic has many forms,
but false religion has always been its main expression. From Cain, the son of
Adam and Eve, and Nimrod, the grandson of Noah, you can trace a line of White
Magic straight to the New Age of our modern world.
We must now realize that paganism has gone mainstream in our Western Society. Satan's "final lie" must take the "beautiful side of evil", combine it with all the depths of its magical powers and then transform them into the theology of Apostate Protestant churches. Catholicism did this very thing during the early days of the third and fourth century. They are still teaching these doctrines of mixture. That's why they can claim "miracles" by the thousands, apparitions of dead "saints", holy water that supposedly chases away evil spirits, wafers "bleeding" with the very blood of Jesus, crying statues, etc. This same pagan spirit has invaded the Charismatic and Apostate Evangelical world.
Satan also set in place the worship of pagan goddesses that are equal in scope and powers to the Catholic Virgin Mary. The Dalai Lama bluntly told New Age author, China Galland, that the same spirit of "rangyung" who was producing the Madonna apparitions and miracles in America and Europe with the Virgin Mary was also producing the Madonna goddess miracles in China, Tibet, and India with the Hindu and Buddhist goddesses.
Here is Galland's exact quote: "When I tell him [Dalai Lama] about the reports of the Blessed Mother appearing in the bark of trees in Poland, he concurs [with my initial impression that they are the same as with the Madonnas in China, Tibet, and India.] 'Yes, that would be rangyung , the same thing as we have been talking about, of course, the same thing.' " ["Longing For Darkness", China Galland, p. 93]
Doubt it not! The same demonic spirit that regularly produces these occult
"miracles" in India and China is producing these "miracles"
in the lands dominated by Roman Catholicism. White Magic is the power behind
all these manifestations, and is setting up the peoples of the world for the
final deception, the appearance of Antichrist.
Apostle Paul warned of this invasion of magic.
"For such men are false apostles [spurious, counterfeits], deceitful workmen, masquerading as apostles (special messengers) of Christ (the Messiah). And it is no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light; So it is not surprising if his servants also masquerade as ministers of righteousness. But, their end will correspond with their deeds." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
Notice clearly what the apostle warned us about. He said that Satan could transform
himself to an angel of light. That word "transform" is a derivative
of a powerful word, metarnorphoo. These two Greek words mean basically
the same, except that metamorphoo is positive, while this same
word in the Greek, metasehematizo, is negative. In the first word,
as Apostle Paul used to describe being "born again and sanctified' by the
blood (Romans 12:1-2) it is a beautiful transformation. In this second word
it is a transformation also, but for the purpose of disguising to deceive and
change. Satan transforms himself by his magical powers to deceive and change
He likewise transforms his ministers. Read 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 again, meditatively. This fresh revelation to my heart changed the way I now understand "the final lie." These ministers are actually transformed by magical powers and a confusion of reality into counterfeit "ministers of righteousness." Steve Hill at Brownsville Assembly preaches almost every night on a counterfeit repentance of some description. Magical powers would be soundly rejected by most Pentecostals and Evangelicals unless they were clothed over with an apparent facade of "righteousness." There were very few churches that followed alter the manifestations at Toronto until Toronto was sanitized by this "transformation" of Pensacola. Now, Pensacola has legitimized the white magic of Toronto by giving it an appearance of righteousness.
White Magic Will flatter Men Into Submission
As Daniel wrote his revelations of the future, he concluded them in chapters eleven and twelve to describe the very day in which we are living. He specifically spoke of the religious world and how Satan would deceive the people in the Latter Day church. He stated:
"And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits for God." (Daniel 11:32; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary).
The first step in spiritual deception is the light and careless treatment of God's true covenant, the Holy Scripture. No one can be deceived until they take the Word of God lightly and handles it carelessly; this generation has fallen headlong into the new versions of a corrupted covenant. Now, Satan can do his intended work. He flatters them with his and his servant's smooth words. This word "flattery" is a feminine form of smooth talk. It is actually a sensuous deception. In the Book of Revelation, John spoke of this very same spirit as the spirit of Jezebel.
In NEWS1841, we quote Paul and Jan Crouch, Kenneth Copeland and others as they speak the most blasphemous things imaginable about Jesus and His Holy Word; why, anyone who had even a minor amount of Scriptural knowledge would immediately get up out of their chair and walk out of the auditorium, or, if they are viewing this charade at home, would immediately turn the TV set off. But, no, these blasphemous people are applauded, admired as men of God, and are given money galore so they can build their palatial estates, their "Heaven on Earth".
These blasphemies are clearly the work of Satan's End of the Age deceptions.
Sensuousness Is At The Root Of The "Final Lie"
We are not fighting White Magic alone, but a sensuous form of White Magic.
Sensuality in religious worship is how Nimrod made pagan religions so very captivating.
Nimrod included in the temple worship: singers, dancers, and art forms to titillate
the crowd with cross and/or sensuous dressing participants. The singing in most
churches today has become the highest form of entertainment. Men and women alike
dress to the fine points of showbiz excellence. The entire church world is being
trivialized with singing that is appeals more to the eye, the body and the flesh
than to God.
Religious rock music has also taken on a form of flesh and sensuousness that has absolutely no kin to Biblical worship.
Religion With A Sexy Dress
When you mix paranormal powers with slick entertainment, sensuous music that has a love song flavor and ministers that have been transformed into counterfeit "ministers of righteousness," you have the making of a powerful movement We are still in the early stages of this development. White Magic has always been the favorite means of Satan's deception and he is preparing a lie so incredible and so convincing that multitudes will be destroyed in their faith. Our modern technologies of communication have trained our current generation to respond to surface perceptions, clichés and glitzy presentation. It is the perfect vehicle for evil powers to use to present the false spiritual anointing and its white magic fanfare. When you add paranormal (Satan's supernatural) activities to a fleshly display, watered down, twisted theology, and promotion by the biggest names in religious circles, you've got the power to convince a multitude!
Paranormal Activities Attributed To God
Many White Magic events being practiced in Charismatic Churches are now falsely being called "Signs and Wonders" from the Heavenly Father. We have documented some of the most insane behavior that is being called Holy Ghost impartations, manifestations. Already millions are accepting these activities. We Baptists just cannot believe that a person obviously under the control of the demonic host is being cheered by Charismatic pastors, their wives, and other church members, with everyone in attendance believing they were witnessing a manifestation of the Holy Spirit! What blasphemy! What unbelievable spiritual deception! Yet, this is the very same type of deception inherent in Antichrist; this type of deceptive spirit is the reason the people of the world will "rush in amazement and admiration" after Antichrist [Revelation 13:3]
We fear that such deluded Charismatics will be the ones who will be given the "strong delusion" that they cannot believe Biblical truth anymore. Listen:
"The coming of the lawless one, the antichrist, is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of pretended miracles and signs and delusive marvels--all of them lying wonders-- And by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing (going to perdition) because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. Therefore God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false, In order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness.." [2 Thessalonians 2:9-12; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
Listen again to the pertinent warning: "God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false, in order that all may be judged and condemned who did not believe in the Truth, but [instead] took pleasure in unrighteousness.."
As these poor, deluded souls shown on these various "Signs and Wonders" videos "take pleasure" in participating in the unrighteousness inherent in the White Magic they are practicing, if they continue such practice, God will send them a "strong delusion" to believe the lie of Antichrist so completely they can never see the truth to be saved!
Therefore, "... exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin ... While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation." [Heb 3:13-15]
Resist the temptation to get mad at us for simply telling the truth; instead, open your spiritual eyes and hearts to this truth, so you may turn to be eternally saved.
Jesus Christ In A Burrito
Francis Frangipane publishes his acceptance of a number of White Magic manifestations
and expresses his clear support of them. Here are his words from an edition
of his River of Life Ministries,
"I feel that the Lord is accommodating these things, or at least some of them some of the time, but they are bewildering, to say the least. In fact, I've witnessed services where respected charismatic leaders stood silent and immobile like statues for hours. I thought, Isn't this amazing? People who are usually so animated are acting like statues, while in Catholic church statues are acting like people."
"Then there is the Ohio water tower that bore on its side the likeness of a portrait of Christ. Throughout the nation, news stations reported that sign-seekers by the hundreds of thousands caused massive traffic jams. And, let us not forget the burrito in Texas that, as it was fried, took on the supposed appearance of the face of Christ. It is now enshrined and producing 'good fruit' in many' (River of Life Ministries, Vol 9. No 2. August, 1995, p2.)"
What can I say, except that we have now entered the prophesied time of deception unparalleled in church history.
The Final Lie Of Satan
We will certainly continue to report to you this exploding revival of white
magic in the church. We believe it is the outpouring of Satan's "Final
Lie". We will only see the first stages until the Rapture of the Bride
and the removal of the "Restrainer." Our text for this article made
it clear that the ultimate expression of the "mystery of iniquity cannot
be revealed until the "Restrainer is taken out of the way." (2 Thessalonians
2:6-7). We must not allow this great Truth to blind us to deception that may
well proceed the Rapture. We must prepare ourselves and every soul that will
listen as we await His supernatural return. It will grow worse and worse and
darker and darker.
The infallible Word of God, unspoiled by false human interpretations -- obeyed and loved -- is our anchor of the soul. Be careful that your "anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock" (Jesus Christ).
This great deception truly is a firm sign that we are in the End of the Age.
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
Finally, we would love to hear from you.
