As an aside, I will likely “self-ban” myself from both Twitter and Facebook in the near future, either completely deleting my accounts or simply no longer going there. I’m done with their censorship and Leftist mentality. I’ve never been suspended from either group, but maybe I’m not doing it right? Why push it? I’ll stick with Gab (@Dr_Fred57) and Gettr (@DrFred57), both of which protect the rights of people to speak freely.

Strong Delusion
Our main subject of this particular article: the Strong Delusion that Paul speaks about in 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12. Interestingly enough, Mike Adams has a somewhat related article on this very subject from a mainly secular perspective that readers might be interested in checking out. It truly is astounding what embracing lies will create within a person. He lists six delusions he asserts are due to beliefs people willingly embrace. I’d add one to his list: the fact that many within Christendom today take the Bible literally (in its most plain and ordinary sense), until they come to sections of Scripture that deal with prophesy. At that point, sound Scriptural exegesis goes out the door replaced with allegorical interpretations. This is especially true of the book of Revelation. It’s as though they believe God would never tell anyone about future events, even though much of the Bible contains prophesy of future events, many that have already occurred. Go figure.

Here’s what Paul says about the future from 2,000 years ago:

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Right after Paul mentions the Restrainer (the Holy Spirit working through the Church), as the One who holds back the revealing of the man of lawlessness or lawless one, he then outlines the circumstances that will exist in global society that will allow this coming lawless one (aka the final man of sin, aka Antichrist), to come to the fore as final world leader. Verse 9 states that this future lawless one will be borne into the global spotlight by the “working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Everything that will allow the coming Antichrist to be fully accepted by the world’s society is underway now (and started in Paul’s day), so that when he finally does arrive on the scene, people will already be fully brainwashed and conditioned to accept him for who he will claim to be (God, as in the physical second coming of Christ). We don’t have to take a hard look around society to understand that the deceptive works of Satan as the foundation are being poured now.

The main reason the Antichrist will be accepted by the world is all based on global society’s refusal to accept the truth about God and the delusions that are created from that perspective. This where it all starts and grows from there. The delusions are taking hold very strongly now and I’m disappointed that I’m not seeing/hearing more leaders within Christendom speaking of this. Instead, they seem oblivious to what is happening in the world as a strong delusion overtakes common sense and critical thinking. Here’s an example from someone in the UK:

On Tuesday 7th Dec I finally decided to hang up my green uniform and retire from the ambulance service after 9 years. It’s been a bumpy road over the past two years, having to witness the mass brain washing amongst the service and the general public. I have had to remain quiet to keep my job, knowing full well that what I was witnessing was wrong. And for that I’m sorry.

A few weeks ago, I was having a conversation with a paramedic, whilst waiting to hand over my patient. Bearing in mind this particular paramedic used to teach new staff members, part of the Syllabus: includes health and safety, human rights, the equality act and diversity etc.

That same paramedic stated to me in his own words, that ANYONE that refuses the vaccine should be denied hospital treatment and should die. This man teaches??? I’ve never been so disgusted in all my years, it left me feeling there’s no hope left for humanity, after all how would this paramedic now treat his future patients? Who may not be vaccinated? He wishes them dead? What a concern!

This week, I come across multiple staff in a local hospital that also aired the very same opinion, they truly believe that anyone that presents at A&E don’t not deserve treatment or sympathy. When I fought for freedom of choice, and body autonomy, they were like a pack of wolves. One nurse in particular stating I should be held down and forcibly jabbed.

Now the majority of my patients, which I can only speak on personal experiences, are double/triple jabbed. I’d say 99% of them. The hospital is heaving with vaccinated people. NOT UNVACCINATED. But still the majority of the staff choose to discriminate? It’s crazy!

The reason I have decided to write this and pass it on, is because anyone that’s not had the vaccine need to proceed with caution when visiting the local A&E. the staff clearly have lost sight of why they trained in the first place and I’m massively concerned with how you will be treated, or mistreated for that matter. The discrimination is out of control and the divide has already started. Proceed with caution, because if they could write you a DNR they would.

I’m off the road now, and I’ve never felt more at peace. My only hope is, that the hospital staff one day wake up, look at the figures, actually open their eyes and stand down too, or at least stand WITH their fellow man/woman and stop this now before it’s too late.

This is fast becoming the norm with many in the healthcare industry. Yet, these same people would not have a problem with a person involved in a car accident but was severely injured because of not wearing a seat belt. They would not wish their death or deny them healthcare. This should be extremely concerning to everyone.

In 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12, the “lie” Paul refers to in verse 11 has to do with the fundamental truth that God exists. It is this specific truth upon which all truth hangs. A rejection of this truth deeply affects the way people live life (cf. also Romans 1).

The initial and even basic truths regarding God as Creator are evident in what God has created. The truth that God is Savior is also revealed through the life, death and resurrection of God the Son, Jesus. His life shows God as righteous Judge of all things as well as merciful Savior to all who come to Him. Yet, many have rejected and continue to reject God’s grace, love, mercy and truth simply because they’ve decided it’s not true, based not on facts, but on feelings. This attitude simply mutes that person’s ability to appropriate God’s mercy and love. They have not deleted God. They have merely muted themselves to God’s existence and salvation through Him. I remind myself of all the people who have suddenly died after receiving the vax or due to lack of early treatments for COVID (Dr. Robert Malone estimates at least 500,000 people have died from the latter), and who are in eternity now, many wishing for a do-over.

Most people today do not want the truth because it goes against how they feel; is to constricting. They actually prefer lies because lies cater to how they feel about things and that’s all they need to determine truth for themselves. Facts do not matter; only feelings.

People do not love the truth and are completely unwilling to hear it (2 Timothy 3:1-5). Truth is truth but we are living in an age where the people who have most of the power and the microphone are working hard to replace truth with their lies. It’s working.

Because of a continuing rejection of God, most remain outside God’s redemptive plan and are so, willingly. As people continue to wallow in and feed on the lies they’ve embraced that reject God and all that He is and stands for, God tells us He will send a deluding influence (or strong delusion), so that they will increasingly give themselves over to falsehoods.

Because people stand opposed to God and His truth, God prepares them to receive and fully embrace the coming lawless one who will wow the world with extraordinary powers by exhibiting signs and wonders that this world has never seen on such a global scale before. This strong delusion that God is sending will firm up their beliefs in the lies they believe. It appears this coming delusion is here now and growing to prepare the world’s people for the judgments of the coming seven year Tribulation. They’re actually inviting it.

If we consider what many people believe today about COVID, it can be maddening. More and more articles and narratives by people who have had COVID but are vaccine free are seen by the vaxxed as “selfish,” “the problem,” “disease spreaders.” Many, like Fauci are pushing for fascism that dictates forcing the vax on everyone if people continue to refuse to take it voluntarily.

Aside from COVID, there are many lies making rounds in society.

  • Transgenderism
  • Number of genders
  • White privilege
  • Whites automatically born racist

Racism was the claim against Kyle Rittenhouse long before he even went to trial for shooting three white people, killing two of them in self-defense. However, Darrell Brooks (a black man), deliberately ran over a group of white people, even accelerating into them, killing a number of them and injuring many. He is now complaining that he is being demonized for murdering people.

The Left will argue that racism had nothing to do with Brooks deliberately running down white people, but Kyle’s shootings did. Brook’s family contends he was raised in a Christian home and blame Brook’s problems on failed health services industry. They embrace lies to assuage their own guilt and distance themselves (and him), from actual blame.

Jussie Smollett was just convicted of five of six felonies for fabricating an assault. However, jail time won’t be considered so the most he’ll get is probation and community service. Tell me again about white privilege. It’s a globalist weapon used to divide society.

This isn’t much different from what Adam and Eve complained about shortly after the discovery of their own sin, stemming from embracing the serpent’s lie (Genesis 3). It’s always someone else’s fault. It wasn’t Adam’s. It wasn’t Eve’s. The only individual who did not offer an excuse then was the serpent.

There are many reasons for not embracing truth. The problem is that this never works where God is concerned. People are responsible for their own actions, thoughts and words before a Living and Holy God. Nothing we can do on our own will absolve or excuse us. The more the truth is rejected, the more the lies will be embraced. Those who reject truth will come under the sway of the strong delusion God sends by embracing it with fervor. The entire world will be part of the this actual coming delusional pandemic. It is here now and will simply grow to become a worldwide phenomenon, creating a very clear path leading to the revealing (and heralding), of the coming Antichrist.

Are you saved? Do you know Christ? To safeguard against the coming Strong Delusion, one must reject all lies. Embracing truth is the only antidote (John 14:7; Titus 1:2).

    Let me first say I am so thankful that the Lord Jesus Christ died for my sins and I am saved. I am so thankful that I can have this blessed assurance for that is the foundation for the rest of my life! I want to speak to the growing delusion. Of course it is like the proverbial frog in the pot of boiling water, it is coming on slowly and it is a choice that people make—to believe lies or truth. Like you said in the article, believing that God exists is the basic foundation. It’s like a giant spiritual Jenga! This may sound weird but I can almost feel—spiritually—the delusion (darkness?) surrounding myself and it is only a conscious, willful, pressing into Jesus that remedies this. These are definitely different times then when I got saved in the 90’s. We are fighting for our own walk, our families’ and also trying to deliver the good news to the world around us. It is exhausting. But when I take the time to quiet myself and be still it is such a worthy investment. He gives life and abundantly! He fights for us on our behalf! He gives clarity when there’s confusion and light where there’s darkness. Please trust Him and make the investment of time!

      Hi LW, thx so much for your thoughts.

      “This may sound weird but I can almost feel—spiritually—the delusion (darkness?) surrounding myself and it is only a conscious, willful, pressing into Jesus that remedies this.”

      That isn’t weird at all. I think many of us experience the same thing.

      You are also correct that focusing on Jesus is the only remedy spiritually.

      Thx again.
