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.
