3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 2 Cor.4
“For I tell you that you are being given a strong delusion. You are being given a strong delusion now. For the world is racing towards judgment. Much of it is not even aware of these things. For the world is blinded to those things of my Spirit. The king of this world has had many drink of the cup of this delusion. For in this cup are the things of this world. In it you will find the pursuit of riches. In it you will find the sins of the flesh. In it you will find all kinds of depravity.
But the cup that I give to you is overflowing with my great love for you. In this cup of mine, you will find the blood that was poured out and given to you. For it is a cup that was freely given to all, but it was rejected by many. The blood flowed and it reached unto many as I was cast down.
But now many have been blinded, for they only see the world and all it has to offer them. But if they would take off those things that have blinded them, then they would see that the world is only temporary. ”
