“The coming of the LAWLESS one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and LYING wonders, and with all UNRIGHTEOUS DECEPTION among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them STRONG DELUSION, that they should believe the LIE, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOSNESS.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 (NKJV)

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. God is truth, and what He says is “true and right” ruling over all people, in all places, for all time. And God’s word reveals what is good for all mankind, all cultures, and all nations. His central Laws are righteous! They are right for everyone. They are just for everyone. HIS TRUTH IS THE ONLY TRUTH. Everything men create in contradiction to TRUTH is a LIE.

You will find His wisdom seeping out of every page of the Bible, from beginning to end. He exposes what is evil, and explains what is good. But people come up with what they love, do, and think in contradiction to their Creator.

Watching our divided country as many scream lies, demand unrighteousness, & BELIEVE DELUSIONAL LIES exposes their rebellion against God. Of course it only is expressed in culture & politics as hatred toward people who disagree with them and their UNRIGHTEOUS DECEPTION.

“How horrible it will be for those who call evil good and good evil, who turn darkness into light and light into darkness, who turn what is bitter into something sweet and what is sweet into something bitter.” Isaiah 5:20 (GW)

Nations and cultures reject God’s Law and create their own. They side with Satan and the coming Antichrist, but are deceived and blinded to this horrible reality. This means in reference to God they are lawless because they contradict God’s Law. They call evil good and good evil. And, they love those who contradict what God demands of His creation. Lawless people love lawless people.

For example abortion advocates love abortion and hate those who cry, “You shall not murder” Exodus 20:13 (NKJV). They hate God’s law and demand it is their right to kill their babies to make themselves happier. You hear the delusional mantra screaming from Hollywood, the media, and political people.

This will not change God’s mind.

Whether you find a Christian who loves God and dares to obey His Law, or a person who just stumbles onto the same belief, the reaction of the those under STRONG DELUSION will express the same disgust and hatred to both. The lawless demand new laws to contradict and destroy God’s Laws.

God says He created marriage between a man and woman. But those of STRONG DELUSION strongly disagree and attack with savage hatred demanding new laws to force those who love God’s Laws to be destroyed or forced into compliance with their unrighteousness. The lawless demand new laws to contradict and destroy God’s Laws. They are so deluded in their hatred they accuse others of being hateful or racist while they themselves are FULL OF HATE and UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

God says He created mankind, male and female, BUT STRONG DELUSION is now storming our world demanding those ignorant followers of God’s ways must be crushed. “…with all UNRIGHTEOUS DECEPTION among those who perish” those of STRONG DELUSION demand new laws to crush the righteous, “because they did not receive the love of the truth” and only live in STRONG DELUSION. And again, the lawless demand new laws to contradict and destroy God’s Laws.

There are more examples, many more.

And what we see today in the U.S.A. is the explosion of REBELLION to anything and everything God commands through the raging hatred spewing from the DELUDED. This delusion is masked as political or human rights, not religious and rebellion against God Almighty. The STRONG DELUSION is set in stone.

Now slanderous lie after slanderous lie is the main weapon to destroy the ideas, the thoughts, and ways of God disguised as merely political battles to destroy political enemies. When the PLEASURE IN UNRIGHTEOUSNESS is the central focus of a fight in our nation it is not political, and you are DECEIVED unless you see the “political rebellion” (rejecting God’s policies) as overthrowing God from the land to make room for “the LAWLESS one”.

The policies of God verses the policies of the DELUDED rage on. The struggle for the DELUDED is to remove every vestige of God’s righteousness from the land.

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NLT2)


Children in Fear By Hal Lindsey

On Sunday, August 4th, America had just experienced two mass shootings in a matter of hours. At that moment, one of the most politically correct men in America tweeted something he would quickly regret. Neil deGrasse Tyson, well-known atheist and science popularizer tweeted, “In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings. On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose… 500 to Medical errors, 300 to the Flu, 250 to Suicide, 200 to Car Accidents, 40 to Homicide via Handgun. Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.”

He overstated the El Paso and Dayton death tolls saying 34 died when the actual number was 22. But that’s not what outraged his Twitter followers. They were angered because they felt he had downplayed the shootings. One person wrote, “This is the most heartless tweet in the history of social media.” Later, Tyson apologized, saying, “I got this wrong.”

Dr. Tyson and I are polar opposites on most issues. But I agree with him on several things here. First, I agree that he got it wrong – not the words or data, but the timing. He said the truth, but he said it too soon. He sent out the tweet while Americans still sat in shock, watching the aftermath of the horror on their television screens.

But even though I think he said it at the wrong time, I agree that it should at some point be said. In fact, it’s crucial. Here’s why. We’re needlessly terrorizing our children.

It’s hard enough for an adult to realize America’s size. A child cannot understand how extremely unlikely it is that he or she might be shot at school, or while shopping at the mall. Even adults have a tough time picturing how many millions of people went to Walmart over the last month, in complete safety. For children, the numbers are unfathomable. But they instantly relate to shock, horror, and terror. They may not understand the whys and hows, but they pick up on fear. And adults are afraid.

On August 7th, a motorcycle backfired in Times Square. People thought it was an active shooter. The ensuing panic resulted in several injuries. Since the El Paso and Dayton shootings, there have been similar events all over the country.

In Lubbock, Texas, someone at the Social Security Administration offices saw a person park a car in the employee parking lot, then run away. They called police and evacuated the building. Homeland Security showed up. It turned out that the person was simply late for a job interview and that’s why he ran when he left the car. In times past, it would have been no big deal. But these days Americans are on edge.

Children already live in fear. Many of them can no longer play in their own front yards. More and more wear armor plated backpacks at school. A child is far more likely to die in a traffic accident on the way to school than to be killed by a gunman while at school. But traffic deaths don’t result in wall-to-wall media coverage.

We must teach our children to respect danger, but not live in fear. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Even in perilous times, we need to know and to teach our young the wonderful truth of Psalms 121:2. “My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” When the Maker of heaven and earth has promised to help you, fear loses its awful grip.

If you’re a follower of Jesus, pray for the children. When you encounter them, be reassuring and kind. Families and churches should not make a child’s entertainment their primary goal. Instead, we must teach kids about the love of God, and His faithfulness to all who put their trust in Him. Teach them that heaven is real, but that God’s provision and care starts here on earth. Above all, we must consistently express our own confidence in the Lord and our love for Him.
