Bible Prophecy ( The Deception) Part IV




Deception is all around us and getting worse. Darkness seems to have many bound by the ankles. The shackles are thick and hard to break free from unless severed by the sword of truth. What is Deception? In Mark 7:20-22, Jesus said that deceit is what comes out of man who is not godly. "And he said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness."  Deception is a horrible weapon which is used on the world to keep millions if not billions blinded from the true and living God.

Deception deals with trickery or manipulation of the mind. It is so easy to succumb to its power. The world we live in is swimming and bathing in the ocean of the deception without even realizing it. In the last days, we will see more of the world being swooned by the seduction of the Deceptive mistress. The book of Revelation calls her the Mystery Babylon.

Revelation 17:1 One of the seven angels who held the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of that notorious prostitute who sits on raging waters. 2 The kings of the earth had sex with her, and those living on earth became drunk on the wine of her sexual sins.” 3 Then the angel carried me by his power into the wilderness.5 The name was Mystery: Babylon the Great, the Mother of Prostitutes and Detestable Things of the Earth. 6 I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people and of those who testify about Jesus. I was very surprised when I saw her. Mystery Babylon is referred to as a woman. Many times in scripture when you see a feminine connotation put on a place or an entity; it could refer to a church, a body of people, or a nation.  Mystery Babylon is the world's current church system. Step outside from the Christian faith, and you can see that all other religions and worldly belief systems are the same. Deception is a harlot who has to sleep with everyone, and she is almost there. Mystery Babylon is getting stronger as many come and drink from her sweet nectar. She is a woman who is hard to quit because of her sexual seduction has entrapped the soul. I see it everyday the evil of mankind. The selfishness from others is overwhelming. I see how the Mystery Babylon has whored herself into the church as well and has cause many to fall to her false beauty. This is bible prophecy coming to past, and it will only get worse. Like a Siren, she will lead many to their dooms and ultimate separation from the living God.There is hope. Not everything has to be so gloom and doom. We can and will overcome. What can we do to ensure that we don't fall into bed with this evil harlot?1. Live pure and holy lives. ALWAYS.2. Obtain and maintain godly self-discipline.3. Know, live, and recite the word of God without compromise.4. Stay in the attitude of prayer and never cease.5. Challenge everything that does not seem right in your spirit.Deception is easy to fall into and hard to fall out from. I am not saying bunker yourself down and hide from the world. I am saying be careful and don't follow or pretend to follow every whim that comes along. I am a firm believer this is why men and women died for the word of God. They knew in their spirit that future generations would need the written word in their language in order to stand against the enemy and the deception from the world.
