THE COMING DELUSION


"I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.” 
- Isaiah 66:4 KJB.
God called Israel to repentance, to turn from their wicked ways, and offered them mercy and forgiveness of their sins...but sadly "none did answer" His call. When the Lord spake, they "did not hear". They did evil before the eyes of the Lord, and chose that in which the Lord delighted not. They chose their own sinful ways, and spurned the fear of the Lord and departure from evil.
So, the Lord pronounced a most profound and righteous judgement against them...because "Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations." - Isaiah 66:3b KJB. The Lord would "choose their delusions", and "bring their fears upon them."
Look in the first Proverb...
"Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;
But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you."
- Proverbs 1:23-27 KJB.
Sinners who refuse to hear the call of the Lord to repentance, that refuse His reproof, nor regard His word...set themselves up for great delusion, and listen carefully...a bringing of their own fears upon their own heads. Yeah, fears, calamity, desolation, destruction, distress, and anguish is coming to the unrepentant sinner.
Such is the plight of those that reject or neglect the pure Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The judgement and wrath of God abideth upon them (John 3:36). God will choose their delusions, and bring their fears upon them.
Surely their are many delusions in the here and now. These delusions...like false prophets, false teachers, false Christs, new age movements, media propaganda, etc. are God's judgment against those that love not the truth according to the word of the Lord. But there is a coming delusion the world is being prepared for, that it seems ready for in these last days.
The coming Antichrist himself. Yeah, the Wicked one...who will declare himself as "God".
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish..."
- 2 Thess. 2:9-10a KJB.
Signs. Lying wonders. Deceptions. Unrighteousness. A delusion on all that perish. And why?
And 2 Thess. 2:10b-12 KJB - " ...they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. For this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
It is the true and living God that has chosen these delusions for all that "received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved." The Lord called, but they did not answer. When He spake, they did not hear. They continued to do evil before the eyes of the Lord with no repentance or change. They chose that which the Lord did not delight in...they loved the world and the things of this world. They would have none of God's reproof, and neither regarded His stretched out hand of salvation.
It is the true and living God that will send this STRONG delusion.
Are you prepared for the coming delusion? Or are you caught up in the current delusions, having set aside the word of God, rejecting the Gospel of Christ Jesus the Lord?
Only the Lord can make known His words unto us, and pour out His Spirit of truth upon us.
Are we walking in the Spirit of truth, or in the delusional spirit of error? If a soul has not received the love of the truth from the Lord, they are in delusion now and are ready for the coming delusion.
DELUSION, 1. The act of deluding; deception; a misleading of the mind. 2. False representation; illusion; error or mistake proceeding from false views. (Webster's 1828 Dictionary).
Modern Christendom with it's false representation of Christ is in every sense a DELUSION. Christendom with it's spirit of error and apostasy, it's many false views, it's worldly admixtures, and it's departure from the word of the Lord is DELUSION. The deluded souls that follow Christendom are ripe and ready for the coming storm of STRONG DELUSION. All that rejects Christ, all that neglects Christ, all that misrepresents Christ, all that opposes Christ, all that perverts the Gospel of Christ, and all that feigns to come in the name of Christ...is ripening and readying the souls of men for the coming STRONG DELUSION.
The Lord calls to the souls of men this day...
"Turn ye at My reproof…”.
Repent ye and believe the true Gospel.

A DESERT PLACE

A DESERT PLACE
Jesus took his disciples to a private, quiet place...
"And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.
And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things."
- Mark 6:32-34 KJB.
A desert place...the people came unto the Lord Jesus...Jesus saw them, and was "moved with compassion towards them" as they were "as sheep not having a shepherd". It was there in that desert place that "He began to teach them many things".
These people came out of the cities, out of the towns, out of the villages, out of the religion and religious centers of their day, and came directly to the Lord Jesus in a desert place. Moved with compassion towards them, the Lord began to teach them Himself.
Many do not realize that nothing has changed. Many have to flee modern Christianity and all of the trappings of Christendom, and other religions in order to truly come unto the Lord and truly be saved, and to be taught by Him. So souls can still come unto Him, and find the rest they need.

The SAVIOUR


"I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no SAVIOUR."
- Isaiah 43:11 KJB

"Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a SAVIOUR; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else."
- Isaiah 45:21-22 KJB

"For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the SAVIOUR, the Lord Jesus Christ:"
- Philippians 3:20 KJB

"But is now made manifest by the appearing of our SAVIOUR Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:"
- 2 Timothy 1:10 KJB

"And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the SAVIOUR of the world."
- 1 John 1:14 KJB

To many God is an unknown God. But God has made Himself known through the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."
- 1 Timothy 3:16 KJB

Jesus is none other than God manifest in the flesh, who came into the world to save. There is only one true and living God, and He is both LORD and SAVIOUR in both the Old Testament and in the New Testament. Beside Him there is no SAVIOUR.
God alone saves, and He preserves. And this God came into this world in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ as REDEEMER. He is the LAMB of GOD which taketh away the sin of the world. Christ Jesus the Lord is the very WAY of SALVATION. He alone has the very distinct title of SAVIOUR. He alone is the SAVIOUR of men, the SAVIOUR of the world.
Christ Jesus has abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through His gospel. Only in Him is there EVERLASTING LIFE. Of we men most miserable, we only have hope in the SAVIOUR. All other gods are false, there is no other LORD, GOD, or SAVIOUR beside Him.

No longer the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger, He grew to be a man. He spoke words that were spirit and life. He forgave sins, and healed the sick, and called sinners to repentance. He had mercy upon sinners and saved poor sinners. He went to the cross and there He died for our sins. He was buried. And the third day He arose from the death of the grave. Behold, the SAVIOUR! He ascended up into heaven, and He will return in like manner.
From whence we look for the SAVIOUR, the Lord Jesus Christ.

"For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our SAVIOUR Jesus Christ;"
- Titus 2:11-13 KJB

Do you have Him as your BLESSED HOPE?
Have you come to the SAVIOUR in repentance and faith?
Have you been saved by this SAVIOUR?
Nothing in this world is worth losing your own soul for...NOTHING.
Look unto the SAVIOUR, and be ye saved, for there is no other SAVIOUR whereby we MUST be saved. NOW is the day of His salvation.
NOW is the day to call on His name, and to be saved.
He still saves poor sinners...poor sinners like you, like me.

Amen.

THE APPOINTMENT


We have all heard the sad news of the death of a friend, a family member, a loved one, and even a foe. Some of us have watched as they ebbed or slipped away. At times it is sudden and unexpected. Yet, one day others will hear of our own death as well. Death comes to ALL.
Hebrews 9:27 KJB - "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"
We all have an appointment.
An appointment that is "Fixed; Set; Established; Decreed; Ordained; Constituted; Allotted," by the hand of God Himself.
It is an appointment that comes to all men. A final breath.
A final heartbeat. Once to die, and then the judgment.
No man has cheated death. No man has escaped death.
No man has dodged this appointment, nor ever will in his own strength or by his own will. The wages of sin is death.
We have ALL sinned against the God of heaven.
Death is a great reality.
What will you do to prepare for this appointment?
The appointment is FIXED, and no one man can move it.
It is SET, and no man can alter it. It is ESTABLISHED, and no man can change it. It is DECREED by the word of God, and no man can nullify it by his own words. It is ALLOTTED, and no man can take the cup away. What will we do?
The Psalmist cries...
Psalm 79:9,11 KJB - "Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of thy name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for thy name's sake...
Let the sighing of the prisoner come before thee; according to the greatness of thy power preserve thou those that are APPOINTED TO DIE;"
There is HELP!
Again in Psalm 102:19-20 KJB -"For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth;
To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to LOOSE those that are APPOINTED TO DEATH,"
God has made a WAY for those appointed to death to be HELPED, DELIVERED, PRESERVED and LOOSED from the bonds of death. The true and living God is the God of salvation not only to Israel, but to all that call upon Him in truth. He heard our sighings, He heard our groanings, and He sent His only begotten Son...
Christ Jesus the Lord, the SAVIOUR.
He died for our sins, purging our sin with His own blood. He sacrificed Himself once and for all.
Yeah, in Hebrews 9:28 KJB -"So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."
The Lord Jesus took that appointment on our behalf. If we will but believe in God and trust in His great salvation, He will be our HELP, He will PRESERVE and KEEP, He will DELIVER, and LOOSE us from the bonds of DEATH. Yeah, He will APPOINT to SALVATION, even saving us from the APPOINTMENT to His wrath.
Once a soul is appointed to His great salvation, it too is FIXED, SET, ESTABLISHED, DECREED, ORDAINED, ALLOTTED by His own hand. It CANNOT be moved. The word of God is firm and it is true.
Once we are saved we wait for the Son from heaven, who was resurrected from the bond of death, and ascended on High. He will return in like manner of His ascension, appearing unto salvation. This is GOOD NEWS.
1 Thess. 5:9 KJB - "For God hath not APPOINTED us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,"
The saved are those that have called upon the Lord, acknowledging their sin before Him, with repentance toward God and true faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
For the souls that reject Him, or neglect His so great salvation. there is NO ESCAPE from the appointment with both death and judgment. The word of God says clearly that such souls are appointed to God's wrath. This too is fixed, set, established by the hand of God Himself. Yeah, it is APPOINTED unto men once to die, and after this the judgment.
Repent ye and believe the Gospel.

For God So Loved


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." - John 3:16 -21 KJB.
The GREATEST GIFT...
A gift that cannot be bought, earned, won by good merits, or schemed for in any way. A gift given by the living God who cannot lie, with boundless mercy, compassion, and unfailing love. This gift is a FREE GIFT to sinners (Romans 5:15-18).
"For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." - Ephesians 2:8-9 KJB.
Sinners "should not perish", for God has made a way of salvation. If only they will repent towards God, and believe on His only begotten Son. If they will but receive God's free GIFT. 
God offers EVERLASTING LIFE, and SALVATION full and free. 
Yet many try to be saved by their own good works, and many will not come to the light of God's word, hating the reproof of God for their sin and error. Yet God's love is towards them when there is reproof...
"In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him." - 1 John 4:9 KJB.
God's will is that we DO NOT PERISH, but that we might live, and have ETERNAL LIFE through His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
“For the wages of sin is death; but the GIFT of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” - Romans 6:23 KJB.
God's free gift is offered to ALL that are due the wages of sin, which is DEATH, eternal death at that. 
Yeah, for God so loved...
But there is also a warning for those that will not receive His free gift, who REJECT the gift, and who NEGLECT the gift...
There are everlasting consequences. 
"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." - John 3:36 KJB.
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved to the uttermost. Forgiveness of all sin and everlasting life.
No condemnation for ALL those that believe on Him. 
Believe not and thou shalt face the wrath of God to the uttermost, and shall PERISH and be damned for all of eternity. Eternal condemnation for ALL that believe NOT on Him.
Those who have not believed are CONDEMNED ALREADY.
God sent not His Son to condemn, but that we MIGHT BE SAVED. For God so loved us He sent the SAVIOUR. 
Call on the SAVIOUR while it is called TODAY.
Repent ye and believe the Gospel.
I compel souls to take the free gift.

RECONCILIATION



"And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." - 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 KJB.


The true Gospel of Christ Jesus the Lord is the Gospel of reconciliation. It is a call to sinners to be reconciled to God, and that through the Lord Jesus. We have ALL sinned against God, and are at variance with Him in our natural state. 
The wages of that sin is death, hence why their is suffering and death in this world.

RECONCILIATION: 1. The act of reconciling parties at variance; renewal of friendship after disagreement or enmity.
2. In Scripture, the means by which sinners are reconciled and brought into a state of favor with God, after natural estrangement or enmity; the atonement. (Webster's 1828).

We cannot make peace with God on our own terms, nor can we be reconciled to Him by our works or deeds, gifts or merit. Nay, we sinners can only be reconciled by the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. 
Yeah, the wages of sin is surely death, but the gift of God is eternal life though Christ Jesus the Lord.

Yeah, a poor sinner like me can have both the peace of God, and peace with God, have my sins forgiven, and be cleansed from all unrighteousness, by the true and faithful God. 
And through the Lord Jesus, and ONLY by His works and merit, a poor sinner like me can be made righteous before God.

His righteousness is imparted, so it is not my own self righteousness that much of world religion teaches in error. Even false Christianity tries to come to God for reconciliation by their own works or merits. 
This will NEVER work!

When a sinner hears the true Gospel of how Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, was buried, and rose again the third day, according to the Scriptures…
the sinner can then come to God and be reconciled. It is a direct baby step to God through the Lord Jesus.

So, I pray you, in Christ's stead...Be ye reconciled to God.

RANSOM


Elihu speaks to Job about the plight of man, and God's great salvation...

"Yea, his soul draweth near unto the grave, and his life to the destroyers.
If there be a messenger with Him, an interpreter, one among a thousand, to shew unto man His uprightness:
Then He is gracious unto him, and saith, Deliver him from going down to the pit: I have found a RANSOM.
His flesh shall be fresher than a child's: he shall return to the days of his youth:
He shall pray unto God, and He will be favourable unto him: and He shall see his face with joy: for He will render unto man His righteousness.
He looketh upon men, and if any say, I have sinned, and perverted that which was right, and it profited me not;
He will deliver his soul from going into the pit, and his life shall see the light.
Lo, all these things worketh God oftentimes with man,
To bring back his soul from the pit, to be enlightened with the light of the living." - Job 33: 22-30 KJB.


God's will is that men are saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth. God is not willing that men perish.
Because of SIN man is drawing near unto the grave, his life ready to be swallowed up in death...but...
There is a RANSOM...

"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
Who gave himself a RANSOM for all, to be testified in due time." - 1 Timothy 2: 5-6 KJB.


RANSOM: In Scripture, to redeem from the bondage of sin, and from the punishment to which sinners are subjected by God's divine law. To rescue; to deliver, to save.

The Lord Jesus has paid that RANSOM price for the sinner, and has promised to deliver that sinner that comes to Him confessing and acknowledging their sin in repentance and sincere faith.
Yeah, to redeem that poor soul from sin, fear, and death...

He says…”...and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.” - John 6:37 KJB.

The Lord Jesus is that RANSOM for us.
