     The Holy Bible Is The Immutable  Living Word Of The Eternal God. 

                       

     The Only Bible we Recommend Is The King James / A.V. Bible:

     Because often The Bible Is Used To Deceive

               
    

     Strong Delusion Part 2  by Peter James  
                                      

                                                                                                  

                 2  Thessalonians  Chapter  2.

 

                 Strong Delusion = Confusion

                                   

                 1 Corinthians 14:33 

                 For God is not the author of confusion

                 but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

 

                 James 3:16 

                 For where envying and strife is

                 there is confusion and every evil work.

 

     It has been suggested to me that the following verses say that there will be

     a falling away from the True Church at the end times.

     It has also been suggested that in the True Church,

     the man of sin will appear in the same True Church.

 

     We will now quote the entire 17 verses of 2 Thessalonians chapter 2.

     The two points are highlighted in a blue font.  

 

     2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

 

     2 Thessalonians 2:1 ¶ Now we beseech you, brethren,

     by the coming of our Lord Jesus

     Christ, and by  our gathering together unto him,

 

     2 Thessalonians 2: 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit,

     nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

     2 Thessalonians 2: 3 ¶ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,

     except there  come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed,

     the son of perdition;

     2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,

     or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God,

     shewing himself that he is God.

    

     2 Thessalonians 2:5  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you,

     I told you these things?

     2 Thessalonians 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed

     in his time.

     2 Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth

     will let, until he be taken out of the way.

 

     2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume

     with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

     2 Thessalonians 2: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power

     and signs and lying wonders,

     2 Thessalonians 2:10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;

     because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

    

     2 Thessalonians 2: 11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion,

     that they should believe a lie:

     2 Thessalonians 2:12  That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,

     but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

     2 Thessalonians 2:13   But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you,

     brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation

     through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

 

     2 Thessalonians 2:14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory

     of our Lord Jesus Christ.

     2 Thessalonians 2:15  Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which

     ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

     2 Thessalonians 2:16 ¶  Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father,

     which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation

     and good hope through grace,

     2 Thessalonians 2:17  Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

    

     The very first issue is that many churches claim to be the one True church.

     They do not ask themselves where was the church Of God before their organisation

     came into existence in the very recent past. 

     Where was this True church 100 years ago,

     a thousand years ago, two thousand years ago?  

     Some of these organisations are Sunday keeping, others Sabbath keeping,

     some are very small and some are gigantic, like the Roman Catholic church.

 

     It is true that many church organisations and associated buildings are simply

     massive mausoleums, which are just dormitories for the dead and dying.

     There are huge decaying buildings, many of which are sold to be shops  etc.

     The remaining building and associated organisations are on the decline. 

     For this reason some feel that they qualify as stated in verse 3 where it says 

     there will be a falling away, as many of their members leave the church

     and proceed church hopping, hoping to find a better church.

 

     Up to now I have not heard a single person say that their church is in decline, 

     and vanishing because of rebellion.  Recently I have seen two churches completely

     vanish into nothingness. The membership tends to be in denial of the reality. 

     It is very similar to someone who has been told that he has a terminal disease.

     Many bury their heads in the sand, hoping, even praying, that somehow one day

     all will be miraculously resolved.

     This is unrealistic and experience shows that it does not happen.  

      

     Let us look at this particular claim about there being a falling away from a church,

     before Christ's return.

 

     The classic basis of bible study is considering the context.

     What is the context of chapter 2  in 2 Thessalonians?

     There are 17 verses in chapter 2, therefore this section of 12 verses is approximately

     70 percent of the chapter, in other words a significant proportion.

 

     Point 1. - The Time Reference Is Established.

 

     Verse 1 establishes the period of time which is being addressed,

     1. the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 

      

     Verse 2 speaks about the day of Christ. 

     that the day of Christ is at hand.

                   

     Verse 3 speaks about that day.

     3 that day shall not come

 

     Point 2 . - The Subject Addressed- Truth Versus Deception And Lies.

          

     Verse 3 is not only a command in its own right, but also a summary of verse 2.

     3Let no man deceive you by any means: 

 

     Verse 5 is a further warning to be careful 

     5. Remember ye not

 

      Verse 9 tells us what to expect, how the deception will work. 

     9 Even him, with all power and signs and lying wonders,

 

     Verse 10 speaks about deceivableness and not the love of the truth.     

     10 And with all deceivableness... they received not the love of the truth...,

 

     Verse 11 speaks about strong delusion and a lie.

     11 strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

 

     Verse 12 speaks about not believing the truth. 

     12 believed not the truth,

 

     Verse 13 speaks about belief of the truth.

     13 belief of the truth 

 

     Verse 15 encourages us to hold fast to what has been taught 

     15 hold the traditions which ye have been taught

 

     It is very clear from these verses that the subject is certainly 

     not falling away from any church whatsoever, but rather a falling away from 'truth'. 

     The verses do not need to be manipulated in any way in order to see that this

     is the basic topic in this chapter.

 

     Sadly this is happening throughout the whole of Christendom. The items  of truth,

     which have been the base of some churches are all rapidly being eliminated.

     The genuine translation of the bible is being replaced by corrupt translations.

     The Greek, which is often quoted, comes from the Lesser Greek manuscripts,

     which are also corrupt, replete with pagan meanings.

     See: The Bible Is Used To Deceive   

     It is for this reason that we state on our main page that we are trying to remove all references

     to Strong's concordance. Strong did not believe in the inspiration of the bible.

 

     When we are confronted by 'Truth', we will change, without excuse or apology.      

     In Christendom, Grace has been replaced by license to do whatever each

     individual desires. If you perceive Grace as being Christ,

     you will see that most churches are in deep trouble.  

     Regarding falling away, it is important to note that according to Daniel,

     it is some of those who had understanding who were going to fall away      

 

     Daniel 11:35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, 

     and to make them white, even to the time of the end:

     because it is yet for a time appointed.

 

     There are many documents on the website  which expose the sad state 

     of the Christian church today.  

 

     Point 2. -The second point, a man of sin in a particular church.

 

     2 Thessalonians 2: 3 ¶ Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,

     except there  come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed,

     the son of perdition;

 

     Verse 3 that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

     Verse 4 he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.  

 

     Some can feel that as there is chaos in the church, there is a man of sin, 

     in their true church, and it is only a matter of time before he is revealed.

     The reality is that in most churches today there are many men of sin, 

     who are diligently working behind the scenes to destroy any sign of Christ

     and His commandments.

     The lay membership is quite unable to identify these people.

     Nonetheless their sufferings continues unabated, as they wait for some deliverance,

     some miracle to change things around. Some have waited for dozens of years.

     The reality is that the situation did not become better, in fact it deteriorated greatly.

 

     There Are Three Groups Working To Take Over The Churches.

     I am aware of three groups who are working simultaneously to take over any church

     which claims to be Christian. Of course there are groups, like the Roman Catholic Church,

    Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, Scientologists, and the Moonies, which are not Christian

     to begin with.  I know most will find this hard to believe,

     but it is true. These groups are not in order of importance.  

 

     Group no 1 - Witches

     Witches are moving into, and taking over, the churches.

     It is all very subtle, but very real. They appear to be pillars of the church.

       

     See: Bill Schnoebelen's website.

     We are not saying that we support his doctrinal position.

     We are saying that if you want to see how witchcraft is operating in your church

     then it is worth listening to some of his material. He was a Wiccan high priest. 

     He became a witch originally in 1968. He became a Wiccan high priest in the Alexandrian rite

     in Boston, MA. on the fall equinox of 1973. He labored as a high priest (with his high priestess)

     from 1973 to 1984, when he was gloriously saved. He taught classes in all subjects related

      to coven life for more than a decade and initiated more than 175 people into the craft.

     Quoted from his website. 

       

     I can also tell you that he was a freemason in a rank you probably are not aware

     even exists, either 80 or 90 something. He was a vampire, who lived on nothing but blood

     and the Roman Catholic communion host for a long time. 

     He was inducted into being a Mormon, and he was also a Roman Catholic priest.

 

     Group 2 The Roman Catholic Church and its Jesuits.

     As we have stated many times, the Jesuits claim to have taken over all the established churches

     since they gave the worldwide signal at the inauguration of President Regan in 1981.    

     See: 'The enemy Unmasked' by Bill Hughes,  page 150.

      

     Alternatively, check out former Jesuit priest Alberto Rivera's work.

     Jack Chick, The Godfathers, Alberto Part Three, Chick publications, page 26.

 

     Yes, the reality is that your beloved 'True Church', is already, controlled

     by Rome and its Jesuit warriors. Quite unbelievably, this does not simply refer

     to U.K. or U.S. organisations. This is true about Buddhists, Hindus, etc., etc.

     The elite in these organisations are Jesuits, or are under their direct control.     

 

     Revelation 17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest,

     where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

 

     From this verse we can see that every corner of the world is affected

     by the great whore, whose headquarters is on seven mountains.

 

     Revelation 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, 

     which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

 

     Revelation 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. 

     The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

 

     Most agree that Rome fits the bill for the headquarters of this great false church.

     One problem is that we refuse to accept that what the bible says is precisely true.

     It clearly states that the woman reigns over the kings of the earth.

     All three verses are in the present tense.

     It is similar to the verse which says the whole world is deceived.

 

     Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, 

     called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: 

     he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

 

     We think the whole world except me and my church. 

     The truth is that chances are you are already under the yoke of strong delusion.

     If we choose to humble ourselves then the Eternal God will guide us into

     all Truth and away from strong delusion. Pride and arrogance absolutely prevent this.

       

     Search our website and look for Alberto Rivera, you will get a little more detail.

     Read our article: Funeral Of The Pope.

     At this funeral you would have seen heads of possibly every nation and religion.

     They were all bowing down before their deceased boss.

     You bow down to your superiors. 

     It did not matter if you were Royalty, Hindu, Anglican archbishop, etc.   

 

     Group 3  The Freemasons

     The founders of the Evangelical Alliance.

     The founders of the Mormons.

     The founders of the Jehovah Witnesses.

     The Worldwide Church of God,  all h ave very strong Freemason links, 

     at present a strong Jesuit influence is making itself felt. 

     Their leadership might complain that they do not know what I am speaking about

     as they are undergoing a name change, and W.C.G. does not exist.

        

     It is easy to see that a three-pronged attack on any church, which has not the 

     slightest clue that this is happening is in grave danger of being utterly destroyed.

 

     Point 2 continued,

     Back to the man of sin in verse 3 - 4.

     We are told that he sits in the temple of God.

    

     3  that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 

     4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God,

         or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God.., 

          

     As much as we would like to believe that our 'True Church', is the temple of God,

     it is not the case at all. There is no group, anywhere on the earth, that can claim

     to be, 'The Temple of God'. As we have just shown, almost every church is doing its

     own thing. Let us be fair, no church claims to be a false church. 

 

     Even the church of Satan claims to be true.

     I know that some will feel because I said 'almost every church', that that leaves

     the door open for their group. That is not the intention at all.

     The reason is that it is possible that in some far-flung corner of the earth there

     is a small genuine church, and I have to allow for that, but I certainly do not know

     of any such group. Individual genuine believers are indeed temples of God.

 

     1 Corinthians 6:19  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost 

     which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

 

     1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God

     and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

   

     However, the temple is still being built, note the word groweth below.

     It is going through the process of being built.

 

     Ephesians 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth 

     unto an holy temple in the Lord:

 

     This temple is none other than the warrior Bride of Christ.

 

     See: The Woman The Man Child The Remnant

 

     Since the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem in AD70, no temple has existed.

     It is a primary goal of many groups, including churches, to build a temple

     in  Jerusalem. Because this building will be called the Temple, even the Temple

     of God, it does not mean that the Eternal God will be resident there. You can find

     church buildings, or groups, all over the world with the name God as part of their title.

     Due to rebellion God has not only left the building, but also these groups.

     Of course, this presumes that He was there in the first place.

     However there is some encouragement.

     We stated a little while ago that we are individual temples of God.

     Therefore the group can go down the drain, but it does not follow that

     the individual has to suffer the same fate.  

     It is easy for people to blatantly ignore facts. 

     The band was playing, and people were partying when the Titanic sank.

 

     We were told to put a sentence on our Rhema, which we have done.

     “ YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!!  Come Drink Of The Water of Life.”

 

     The general response has been 'not my house', please do not upset,

     or frighten me with the Truth. I do not want to know.

     Well that is certainly their right, and freewill choice.

     However, the fact is that if you stay in the house, you will certainly be burnt

     to a cinder with it, whether you are upset or frightened is quite immaterial.

     Continuously we quote the following:

 

     Revelation 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, 

     Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, 

     and that ye receive not of her plagues.

 

     Very few are prepared to accept this verse.

     It is telling the people of God, whom the Eternal refers to as my people.

     He is telling His people that they are in the wrong place. 

     This is very specific, it is not addressed to just anyone. However, they say NO,

     we are not moving, God put us here, and here is where we are going to stay. 

   

     A head of a family in another country, who is conducting himself

     in an abominable manner, says that I am talking nonsense, and God will protect him,

     he can do whatever he likes. The reality is that one day there will come a day

     of reckoning, and it might be sooner rather than later, than he, and those who 

     refuse to obey might think. Lip service, appearance, and status with men,

     do not fool God.

 

     Psalm 44:20 If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched 

     out our hands to a strange god;
     Psalm 44:21 Shall not God search this out? for he knoweth the secrets of the heart.

 

     Point 3

     Some churches even promote war with the foolish idea that they can force and hurry

     up the return of Christ. They fail to understand that if they were only to obey,

     and quit their rebellion Christ would return swiftly. As we have said like a stuck

     record, it is because the church is not ready, and without spot and blemish that

     Christ has not returned. 

     A Temple in Jerusalem seems to be a priority for many, and it is a New World Order

     requirement. This is completely understandable as our adversary will do anything

     to profane the city of God, in the worst possible way.

     It will be the headquarters of the anti-Christ and the False Prophet.  

 

     Activities of the wicked one, who sits in the temple of God.

 

 

     2 Thessalonians 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed,

     whom the Lord shall consume with the

     spirit of his mouth,

     and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

     2 Thessalonians 2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power  

     and signs and lying wonders,

 

     Today we already have Pastors and others who are performing lying wonders.

     I know that many church believers and bible readers will find it very hard to accept

     that it is possible or them to be deceived, but most are, and they certainly can

     be deceived. People who have been involved in witchcraft, will plainly tell you that you

     can go into many Pentecostal, and similar churches and see witchcraft,

     and demons operating. They tell us that witches go and speak in tongues,

     cursing the congregation and minister left, right, and centre.

 

     See: Can The Elect Be Deceived            How Deception Works

           The Bible Is Used To Deceive           How Churches Are Deceived

 

     A short time ago we had 'Prophet Yahweh', calling UFO's at his beck and call.

     It was not done in a corner, it was shown on major U.S, news networks.

     In both sets of cases the name of God and feigned obedience to God was displayed.

     Very few understood what was going on.

     The question is that these signs and wonders and 'all Power', will be there for the

     whole world to see. All power is not going to be demonstrated in some under stairs

     cupboard. How are you going to know what is true and what is false?

     You will not have access to these people, whom you might see on tel-lie-vision.

    

     It will only be by their life-style which will NOT match up to their words and deeds.

     Their words will also contradict the bible. This contradiction, between what is taught,

     and what is actually in the bible, is already commonplace.

     Later it will be outright blasphemy as takes place in the Catholic church.

     Most denominations are already accepting the Roman Catholics as fellow Christians.

     They are already in agreement on the translation of the bible.

     They use the same text for their translations.

 

     See the excellent books: 

     Dr G. A. Riplinger's       ‘New Age Bible Versions’

                                   ‘In Awe Of Thy Word’

 

     The Roman Catholic church clearly states that she fully expects all her offspring

     to return to her. Furthermore she regards anyone who is called Christian,

     already to be under her authority. Few 'Christians know that'.

     What is certain is that more and more Catholic practices are being established

     in non-Catholic churches.

     This is a worldwide phenomenon, which I have seen with my own eyes,

     I do not need    anyone to tell me.

     It is all very sad.

     We can see arrogance and pride right now in the Church leaders and rulers

     of the nations. These people do not care in the slightest what anyone says or thinks.

     They do exactly what they like and few say anything or object.

        

     Many times over the past years we have said that what happens in the world mirrors,

     what happens in the Christian church. 

     

     May 1st 2006 

     "WASHINGTON -- President Bush has quietly claimed the authority

     to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has

     the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress

     when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution."

 

     That is the New World Order speaking. They are telling you that they can do

     absolutely anything they desire, and you cannot do a single thing about it.

 

     What about your church, has it done the same thing?

        

     Many churches are like ships drifting aimlessly, without a captain.  

 

     

     Ezekiel 34:3  Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed:

     but ye feed not the flock.

     Ezekiel 34:4  The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was

     sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought

     again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost;

     but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

     Ezekiel 34:5  And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became

     meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

     

     Ezekiel 34:6  My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill:

     yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after

     them.

     Ezekiel 34:7  Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

     Ezekiel 34:8 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey,

     and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was

     no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock,

     but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock;

 

     Now the 'New Covenant Churches' will say that that is Old Testament.

     Of course it is Old Testament. 

     The question is this.

     Does this explain what the condition of your church is?

     Read the whole chapter and then read Jeremiah 23.

     If this accurately exposes the true condition of your church, maybe you should

     blow the dust off your Old Testament and start reading and digesting it.

     Because,  just maybe the rest of it is true and where does that leave you?

 

     Is your church in rebellion?

     Do you think that the Eternal God resides in a church which is in open rebellion?

     Do you think that a church in rebellion can be blessed?

     If He does reside in such a church, OR if it is blessed,

     what is the point of obedience?

  

     The Old Testament has to be dismissed as quickly as possible, because if time is taken

     to read, and accept it, the reader would quickly find himself convicted of rebellion,

     wickedness and iniquity. To say it just refers to ancient Israel, is nonsense,

     as the very same symptoms can be seen today. 

       

     The leaders try their obscene schemes as they covet, lie, steal and kill,

     and we go around thinking it does not matter, it does not affect me. 

     Be assured that there will come a time when you will be personally affected. 

     If the Eternal God is not our wisdom and understanding to grasp what is taking

     place, whether we are students of the bible or not, we would not have a clue. 

 

     John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life:

     and they are they which testify of me.

    

     We should not forget that many preachers and politicians wave around big bibles ,

     and so do their congregations, often these will be corrupt New Age Translations,

     foisted on the Christian community as being more modern and clearer.

     Nothing could  be further from the truth. Some groups such as the Roman Catholics,

     the Jehovah Witnesses, the Recovery Church, the Mormons, produce their own bibles.

 

     I hope that you are beginning to see that the falling away from the truth,

     and the deception of the churches is racing ahead at full steam.

 

     Now that you have been given a small insight, what are you going to do?

     Are you going to do as many others tell me?

     They are waiting for  God to tell them  personally and take them out 

     of their predicament, by some miracle.

     These same people admit that God does not speak to them now !

      

     Often people do not like the messenger, and neither do they like to have to admit

     that they have been utterly misled, and that they have to act in order to correct

     their situation. I do not quite know how these people expect God to speak to them.

     Of course our whole site is based on Rhema, the direct word from God.

     However, whom He uses, when and where He chooses is entirely up to Him.

 

     The Eternal God spoke to Balaam through the mouth of an ass.

     Not only that, the ass saved his life.

 

     Numbers 22:28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass,

     and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee,

     that thou hast smitten me these three times?

                      

     Numbers 22:32 and the angel of the LORD said unto him,

     Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass

     these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee,

     because thy way is perverse before me:

                      

     Numbers 22:33 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times:

     unless she had  turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

 

     It is quite normal for people to tell me that God has to find another way.

     Does He really?

  

     My advice is that all those in rebellion, regardless of their status, whether high

     or low, had better hasten to humble themselves and repent and obey.

     It is bad enough when someone deceives himself.

     When someone deceives and misleads many others, we can be certain that 

     there will be a very high price to pay and inevitable judgment. 

 

     I received this statement today, from a Website List: 

     [abidemir] Criminals In Government, Part I

     It is very pertinent.

 

     Evil is arrogant.

     It has no conscience.

     It is utterly self-serving.

     It hides from the light and will attack, even destroy others to preserve

     its own demented delusions. 

     It is an unrestrained sociopath, wallowing in the murky darkness of its own psychosis

     while endlessly rationalizing its terrible deeds.

     It infiltrates the weak-minded and subverts the weak of character.

 

     Be Humble      Repent      Listen To The Eternal God     Obey Him.    

 

     This is very easy to say, but I assure you that it is physically impossible without

     the empowerment of the Eternal God.

     Just going up to some altar call, running to some church, or isolating yourself

     in the hope that somehow it will all go away, will not do it. 

 

      What are you going to do about it before it is too late?
