Watch Out That No One Deceives You
27 February 2014
The New Testament warns believers many, many times about deception.
Both Yeshua (Jesus), in Matthew 24,
and the Apostle Paul, in 2 Thessalonians 2,
emphasized that deception would be one of the signs of the End Times.
In our day and age there is an astonishing amount of deception in the world. Some of it may seem less harmful than others, but in the end it is all evil, because its ultimate source is Satan, the Deceiver.
What makes deception so insidious is that, by its very definition, if you are deceived then you don't know it, because you are deceived!
It is in response to this avalanche of deception, which is leading so many astray, that I have written many of the articles I've posted on my Brian's Bits
and Your Islamic Future
For a number of months I have had the idea of making a list of some of the major deceptions infecting our modern culture. It's not an exhaustive list, nor are the entries necessarily listed in order of importance. I could have included A LOT more — and I may add more in the future — but for now I've highlighted many of the vital issues in Satan's propaganda war.
Now, more than every, followers of Yeshua need to protect their minds with the Helmet of Salvation, as well as take up the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, to expose the Enemy's lies — see Ephesians 6:10-18.
Father God expressed His heart through the Apostle John: "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth" (3 John 1:4).
