Favorite 3 The Strong Delusion
Synopsis of July 14, 2016 ……….. The Strong Delusion
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 – “Because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved, Yahweh sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe the lie.”
Alien Disclosure and the UFO Phenomenon
L.A. Marzulli is well known for saying: “UFOs are burgeoning and not going away!” An announcement that aliens have arrived in their UFO’s, that they really do exist, and that they are already here on planet earth, could be part of the great deception or the strong delusion. But is this Yahweh’s Strong Delusion?
Aliens and the Panspermia Theory
Panspermia is the hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe, and was planted here on the earth by aliens who visited here in their spacecraft ages ago. An announcement that aliens are responsible for planting humans on the earth could be part of the great deception or the strong delusion. But is this Yahweh’s Strong Delusion?
Satan’s Promise and the Transhumanism Movement
Satan has been promising eternal life since the first days of man. Eve believed him, and Adam stood mutely by as she ate of the fruit of the tree of knowledge, then ate of it himself. Today, transhumanists are promising the same thing – replaceable or immortal bodies in which to live forever. Let’s all become the Borg! The actual inception of this development could be part of the great deception or the strong delusion. But is this Yahweh’s Strong Delusion?
Satan’s Lie and Yahweh’s Strong Delusion
Revelation 13:3-4 – “His deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast.”
Satan has been and will always be on a pretty tight leash. One of his minions, the antichrist, a member of the conglomerate called the beast, suffers a deadly head wound and then is resurrected. Only Yahweh has the power to give life to someone, or to resurrect them from the dead. It is very possible that Yahweh resurrects this person and allows Satan to indwell him, to give credence to the lie that Satan is also able to give eternal life. Those who hate the truth will believe this lie, take the mark of the beast, and think they have immortality. In those days, they will even seek death but death will flee from them (Revelation 9:6), giving enforcement to the lie – a strong delusion indeed! But is this Yahweh’s Strong Delusion?
1 Kings 22:23 – “Yahweh has put a deceiving spirit in the mouth of all your prophets and proclaimed disaster against you.”
That Yahweh would be the source of a great deception is difficult to swallow. The tribulation period will not be the first time that Yahweh does so. A deceiving spirit was sent into the mouths of the prophets of Ahab to cause his demise and death (1 Kings 22:23). This time, during the tribulation, Yahweh will send a strong delusion to those who refuse to hear the truth. And that strong delusion – a phony, albeit brief immortality – may just be Yahweh’s Strong Delusion!
