2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 ~ “Then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming; that is, the one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, BECAUSE THEY DID NOT RECEIVE THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH SO AS TO BE SAVED. FOR THIS REASON GOD WILL SEND UPON THEM A DELUDING INFLUENCE SO THEY WILL BELIEVE WHAT IS FALSE, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. [EMPHASIS ADDED]
I have been aware all week that I will be writing about the “deluding influence”, as discussed in 2 Thessalonians 2:8-12. I believe the Heavenly Father has given me an understanding of what that will be, but I am waiting for more confirmation/clarity and timing to write that up. As I was doing my evening farm chores last night (6-22-17), this is what I feel the Holy Spirit spoke in my spirit:
“THE DELUDING INFLUENCE WILL COVER THE EARTH LIKE BLACK TAR. ONLY MY PEOPLE WILL KNOW THE TRUTH.”
Then the following Scriptures came to mind:
Isaiah 60:1-2 ~ “Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.”
Folks, I can NOT express the urgency of the hour to PLEASE make sure you are diligently seeking the TRUTH in absolutely ALL areas of your life; ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the FULL TRUTH to you. Do NOT rely on old “church doctrines” to get you by, or what you think is the truth. SEEK THE LORD FOR THE FULL TRUTH, or you will be one who is deceived. What is coming is so, so deceptive, ALL people who do not know the LORD, will be deceived and will absolutely HATE the true believers and followers of Yeshua if we speak up and say, “that is not from God, that is from Satan”.
Matthew 10:22 ~ “You will be hated by everyone on account of My name, but the one who perseveres to the end will be saved.”
Matthew 24:9 ~ “Then they will hand you over to be persecuted and killed, and you will be hated by all nations on account of My name.”
John 15:21 ~ “But they will treat you like this on account of My name, because they do not know the One who sent Me.”
Luke 6:22-23 ~ “Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil because of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven. For their fathers treated the prophets in the same way.”
My Final Thoughts:
CHOOSE NOW TO STAND FOR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. . . YESHUA THE MESSIAH . . . AND FULLY LOVE AND SEEK THE TRUTH, or you absolutely will fall for the deluding influence. There will be ALOT of work to do in the darkest days of this planet, bringing in the final harvest of souls, so be ready to do ALL that the LORD calls you to do. AND be ready . . . To completely give your life, even unto death to love, obey and follow the LORD, with ALL of your heart mind, soul and strength. . For some of us . . WILL BE MARTYRS.
In a future post, I will be writing more specifics about what the “deluding influence” will be and I’ll say this: you will NOT be able to resist it unless you are 100% “sold out” to following the LORD and loving the truth.
Matthew 24:24-28 ~ “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told you in advance. So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them. For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.”
