As the close of 2020 approaches, strong delusion is being propagated daily by media, politicians, professors and even some preachers.
Insane demands to abolish the police.
The Holocaust is denied as a myth.
Abominations are extolled as righteous.
The Apostle Paul explained in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 that strong delusion will be sent by God when truth is no longer loved and people will believe the lie.
Strong delusion is paving the way to welcome Antichrist.
With Covid-19 Surveillance mania, overbearing government intrusion and contact tracing, people had to “register” to attend church. Lock downs, quarantines, demands to wear face masks …. all rehearsals for the Antichrist’s government.
The only obstacle in the way of the Global Government Re-set is God’s Re-set through revival and a Great Awakening. We want more time to preach the everlasting Gospel, but prophetic End Time events are also inevitable: God has his own agenda and timeline.
Oregon’s Democrat Governor Kate Brown triggered outrage after stating in an interview that neighbors should call the police if they find another family celebrating Thanksgiving with too many people in their home. Gov. Brown announced restrictions forbidding gatherings of more than six persons inside any one home; violators could be fined up to $1,250 with jail time.
The increase of surveillance was predicted in the social science fiction novel called 1984 by English novelist George Orwell, published in 1949, when the story took place in an imagined future. Orwell envisioned the world fallen victim to government surveillance and propaganda. Great Britain became a province of a totalitarian superstate named Oceania ruled by Thought Police who persecute individuality and independent thinking.
The Party leader is called Big Brother. The novel’s central character dreams of what life was like before the Party came to power.
It would do us all an education to re-read Nineteen Eighty-Four, having become a classic literary example of political oppression.
In fact, the novel popularized the word “Orwellian” as an adjective, with many terms entering common usage, such as “Big Brother” and “double think,” describing the process of indoctrination.
Other terms from the novel 1984 that entered common usage are “thought crime,” “Newspeak”and “memory hole,” used to describe the deliberate alteration or disappearance of inconvenient or embarrassing documents. Memory holes all too prophetic of Big Tech shutting down various websites and social media feeds.
Many parallels can be drawn to today’s real life instances of totalitarianism, hate crimes and mass surveillance. In the novel, the Party’s deceptively named “Ministry of Truth” systematically re-wrote all potentially embarrassing historical documents, to conform with state propaganda.
“Two Minutes Hate” was a daily public exercise during which people must watch a film depicting the enemies of the state and cry out against them.
Clearly the sudden coming of Jesus for his Bride is imminent.
We continue to cry “Maranatha” while also hoping for an extended period of grace to triumph over corruption and allow freedom to ring a bit longer to reap a great harvest of souls.
Otherwise, that job of the Great Harvest will be accomplished by the 144,000 preachers from the 12 tribes during the Great Tribulation. “… a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…..” Revelation 7:9
