Setting Things Up With Great Delusion: Jesus taught his disciples
that in the last days, a time of mass delusion will come upon the
earth. He said:
'For false Christs and false prophets shall
rise, and shall show signs and wonders ... take ye heed: behold, I
have foretold you all things. (Mark 13:22-23)
spoke of this time when he said:'Now the Spirit speaketh
expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the
faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.'
(1 Timothy 4:1)
We have already entered into that period of
history. The world is going through a mystical paradigm shift
where an increasingly high number of people are engaging in
occultic mystical practices which are leading them into a New Age
all-paths-lead-to-God kind of mentality.
But there is more
horror! This trend is happening in the church as well. It is
shocking to see that doctrines and values formerly held sacred are
now being discarded. Many Christian leaders today have replaced
the reading and study of Scripture with having spiritual
experiences or what Jesus referred to above as signs and wonders.
In effect, multitudes of Christians are being led to believe that
if they can have some type of spiritual experience or witness a
miracle, that will bear more validity than the words of Scripture
We have become like the masses in former centuries who
believed that the world is flat (because it appears to be flat),
while the Bible itself refers to it as a globe (Isaiah 40:22).
When it comes to spiritual matters, the truth is essential as to
where I will be spending eternity. You see, we have an advocate
with the Father Jesus Christ Himself, who is all Truth and paid
the price to take us to heaven; but we also have a deceiver,
Satan, who is the father of lies and is intent on leading us to
Are All Signs and Wonders From the Same Source? We need
to look beyond the physical manifestations and determine the
source from which they come. But in the cases of Moses and the
apostles, God was confirming the ministry and message of these
men. Too often, however, signs and wonders are unquestioningly
accepted as being 'from God.'
A key passage from the Old
Testament that strictly forbids the unquestioning acceptance of
all signs and wonders is the following: (Deuteronomy 13:1-4) et,
for many people today (including many Christians), if a strange,
paranormal manifestation occurs, that is evidence enough that it
must be from God without any recognition or acknowledgment that
dark supernatural forces can do these things.
holy laughter, 'slaying in the Spirit,' jerkings, convulsions,
twisting, contortions, and animal-like behaviors have all been
witnessed under the ministering of eastern gurus who draw on
Kundalini energy (serpent power) to do their work. But too many
so-called christian churches and teachers are manifesting these
Satanic signs and calling them 'christian'
Prophecy is quite
clear: at the End of the Age, forces of Antichrist will use these
manifestations to bring this 'Man of Sin' into the world.
because a miracle is occurring in front of youe eyes, do not
assume that the power behind it is from God; it most probably is
