Strong Delusion – Intro

Wickedness and stupidity are contagious. If you need evidence, just look around you. Read your local newspaper. Watch television. Go to the movies. You’ll see evidence for real evil and drooling idiocy, everywhere. But, there is something stronger coming, something that God will cause.

It’s called a Strong Delusion, and it’s a phrase that is used only once in the KJV. And, it specifically refers to the Last Days. And, I have some questions.

WHEN will this strong delusion come?

WHAT will it be?

HOW will it arrive?

…and…

DO we see it now?

I’m not sure that we can answer all these questions, but maybe we can shed some light on them.

I believe in censorship.

I know that this might be shocking to some of you, so let me clarify that I do NOT believe that governments should be given the power to censor information. Nor should objective fact ever be censored. TRUTH should never EVER be censored. But, I strongly believe that lies should be, or talked about in a way that helps everyone understand how untruthful a lie is. And, I have God on my side, when I talk about censorship.

Here are a few examples:

And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.

 – Exodus 23:13

For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

 – Ephesians 5:12

Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

 – Titus 1:11

THAT is CENSORSHIP. And, I exercise it in the comment section, if I do not have the time or energy to point it out correct it – at least for those who speak outright heresy. No one has the right to speak lies. EVER.

No one.

Not me.

Not you.

Not anyone.

Why?

We’re Stupid

Because you and me… we …are stupid. I know that this is a hard concept for some to grasp, but we really are pretty stupid. Some of us are pretty AND stupid, but at my age, I must settle for merely being pretty stupid. And, the most stupid people are too dumb to realize that they are stupid. It takes at least SOME intelligence to see how dumb you are.

Please understand that when Jesus referred to us as sheep, it wasn’t because He thought highly of our intelligence. Sheep are wonderful creatures, and I’ve had a chance to watch them. But, they are dumber than a box of rocks and a bag of hammers. And, they will energetically, with enthusiasm, do the dumbest things. So, it’s a good thing that God doesn’t require an intelligence test for admission into The Kingdom.

We are His sheep, and we’re stupid.

(but He loves us anyway)

And, if you are smart enough to know that you are stupid, then you need to follow the One who is not – and who truly wishes the best for you. And, if you haven’t figured it out yet, there is only one person who ever walked the Earth, who was never stupid and who can be trusted completely.

That person is Jesus Christ. No one else can lead us to safety. No one else can be trusted to always give us what we need. And yes, the word is ALWAYS.

Unfortunately, the Father of Lies – Satan – loves to creep up on us and whisper in our ears, “Hey, would you like to be smart?” I’ve spent a lifetime watching him and his foul minions do that to many, many people. We all want to be smart. All of us. But, history proves that we are physically unable to be smart, even though we want to be.

In fact, the best way to BE smart, is to accept that you ARE stupid. Once you’ve come to that conclusion, you are ready to be guided by God. In fact, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you were implicitly and explicitly admitting that you were unable to save yourself or cleanse yourself from sin. Among other things you were basically admitting that you were stupid.

Oh, how easy it is to forget how stupid we are.

I Include Myself Completely

And yes, I include myself in this. There have been many times – far too many times – when I forgot this. But, God is merciful and rescued me from my own stupidity. And, if you ever see me wince for no apparent reason, it’s often because a memory of past foolishness reached out and tapped me on the shoulder.

Okay, so you get it. You’re stupid. I’m stupid. We’re all stupid. And you accept that fact, or you would have stopped reading this article a long time ago.

So, what does being stupid have to do with this Strong Delusion?

Patience, grasshopper.

Let me tell you a very, very short story.

A Short Story

I was doing a backup of the files on my computer, and ran across some wedding pictures. Our wedding pictures. And, I showed them to Mrs. Little, and I told her that the whole thing was pretty much a blur.

She asked whether this was because I was nervous.

I said, “Absolutely NOT!”

Why?

Because I knew how valuable and unique this woman was and is. And, I did NOT want her getting away. No way. No how. I had found someone special, and I wanted to get married before she figured out how bad an idea this was.

I wasn’t nervous. I was on a mission.

Mission accomplished.

Of course, getting married is the easy part. STAYING married is much more of a challenge. And, I’m on a mission to make sure that this special woman still wants to stay married to me. So far, so good.

What does this Little story have to do with our topic of a Strong Delusion?

Well, think of it like this. When I found the woman who would one day be Mrs. Little, I did everything that I possibly could to make sure that she married me and wanted to stay married to me. She was/is absolutely priceless. Only God is more valuable, in my mind and heart. So, I grabbed her and didn’t let go.

That’s called love.

It doesn’t always feel like love. And, you might even call it an obsession. It’s not like I’m an expert on marriage, but Mrs. Little isn’t complaining. So, I must be doing something right.

Love Of The Truth

The same goes for the Truth. With a capital T.

Do you love the Truth?

You did, when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. That wasn’t some small decision. If anything, it was far, far more life-changing than marrying the most fantastic woman on the planet. Nothing is as life-changing as devoting your life to Christ.

Nothing.

THAT is LOVE.

However, you cannot say that you truly love Christ, if you do not love what He says. That also applies to WHO He is, WHY He is and WHAT He is. And, all of the Bible – all of it – are His words, via the Holy Spirit and the pen of those who wrote those words down. And, His Father gave us the Holy Spirit so that we can have The Truth – so that we can increase in The Truth.

We started out small, with the knowledge that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, that He came down to Earth, died and rose again so that we could have eternal life. It was the beginning of our journey of knowing The Truth.

The problem is that many have gotten lost in their journey. They made a turn, when they should have gone straight. They stumbled and fell of the path, off of the Narrow Way. And, I think that there are many of you who know of people who have done that.

A friend, who was a missionary to the Middle East, became an Atheist. Another, a friend of a friend, lost his way in Russia, after having planted many churches. One very good friend stumbled early in his walk, but God brought him back. And, I have a lot more friends who just stopped moving forward.

My friends who stopped moving forward haven’t forsaken the Narrow Way. They just stopped growing and making progress. Like some married couples, they forgot what and where their love was. And, to this day, they’re just sitting on the path of Truth, stagnating.

So, do you love the Truth?

Do you really?

I doubt that you would have gotten this far, if you didn’t, but I have to make sure. Far too many SAY that they love the truth, but can’t seem to offer proof, or even know what that is. And, this lies at the heart of why this Strong Delusion is coming.

The Strong Delusion From God

First of all, let me give you the verse where you can find it:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:11

Wait.

God?

God will send them a strong delusion?

Yes.

Not Satan.

God.

Whoa!

(and woe)

How is that even possible?

Isn’t SATAN the Father of Lies?

How can God send a delusion to ANYONE, let alone a STRONG Delusion?

Well the Bible says it, so we accept it. And, there are several places in the Bible where God does this, for the purposes of judgment.

Here’s an example:

And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left.

And the Lord said, Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at Ramothgilead? And one said on this manner, and another said on that manner.

And there came forth a spirit, and stood before the Lord, and said, I will persuade him.

And the Lord said unto him, Wherewith? And he said, I will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt persuade him, and prevail also: go forth, and do so.

 – 1 Kings 22:19-22

Poor Micaiah was the one giving this prophecy, and he didn’t want to because he knew that it wouldn’t be received and that he would suffer because of it.

Why did God send this lying spirit to lead King Ahab to die in battle?

Because Ahab sinned against God and led the northern tribes of Israel into sin. And, he might even have been drawing away a good king, Jehoshaphat. So, God sent a strong delusion, so that Ahab would be destroyed.

Because They Did Not Love The Truth

So, why the Strong Delusion mentioned by Paul in 2nd Thessalonians?

Well, the key lies in the verse above 2 Thessalonians 2:11 – actually the second half of it:

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

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:10b

That’s why I spent so much time talking about love. Someone (i.e., ‘they’) did not receive the love of the truth. They were offered the truth. They had the truth in their hands. It was – at a minimum – there for them to pick it up and hold onto it. But, they refused.

OUCH!

The question is… who is this ‘they’ in that verse?

It’s A Part Of The Last Days

Well, the first part of this chapter is a reaffirmation that the Resurrection and Rapture (i.e., the gathering) will not happen until after the Antichrist arrives. Paul goes on to say that something will stop blocking the arrival of the Wicked One, and he goes on to say:

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:

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

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:8-10

By the way, this proves that the Church cannot be that ‘something’ that stands in the way, since the Body of Christ must still be around AFTER the Antichrist is revealed.

Now, does this tell us the identity of ‘them that perish’?

Well after Paul described the return of Jesus, the Resurrection and Rapture, he said this:

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 2:3 

Hmmmm… a falling away.

From what?

Well, it should be clear to all of you that we are speaking of The Truth. At the very least, it’s a falling away of those who have proclaimed themselves to be Christian, but did not receive a love of the truth. They had the truth, but they did not love it.

Not Every ‘Christian’ Goes To Heaven

I’m not sure if you remember this verse, but even those of us who do… well …we need a reminder:

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

 – Matthew 7:21

So, just because you SAY that you are a Christian, doesn’t mean that you are going to heaven. That should make all of us pause for a bit of introspection and ask ourselves if we are truly doing the will of God the Father. And, God only requires that we do our very best.

Are you?

If not, then expect to suffer a strong delusion. And, that’s really what we are talking about here. If you are not devoting all of your life, all of it, to serving the will of God, then you do not stand a chance of making it to heaven. I don’t want to get into a sermon on what it means to be ‘double minded’. You can read what the step brother of Jesus said about that in the Book of James.

The point is that we should probably assume that we are talking about false Christians – or, at least, double minded ones – who haven’t received a ‘love of the truth that they might be saved’. This doesn’t mean that you don’t have mistakes in what you believe to be true. We all have mistakes – myself, included.

Being Married To The Truth

What it means is that you must hold yourself to what the Bible actually says, and not what other people say. You MUST hold the truth as strongly as you can and compare everything that you hear, with that truth. If it disagrees with what the Bible actually says, it’s wrong. No exceptions.

When I got married, I had to flick a certain switch to the ‘off position’. It’s that switch labeled ‘women are attractive’, and it didn’t turn off automatically. Of course, mine had been in the ‘on position’ for twice as long as most people, so maybe I was more aware of the effort needed to make it turn off. Being married to Mrs. Little made that a fairly easy process.

The same goes with The Truth. It’s like being married. Once you have The Truth, you must no longer allow yourself to be attracted to any other thoughts or ideas that are not The Truth. Anything that disagrees with The Truth, MUST BE DISCARDED.

How many Christians actually live like that?

Unfortunately, not many.

You must be married to The Truth. It must be something that is more important than anything on this Earth, because God IS THE TRUTH. And no, we are NOT talking about dogma. We aren’t talking about what your pastor says, or what Dr. So-And-So said in his great commentary on Something-Or-Other. Truth is far more than that. And for us, the Bible actually defines what we can accept as truth.

So, think of this as a warning to those who think that they are Christian. Examine your life to see if you really love the Truth. I have friends who did not, and are no longer following Christ – good friends who seemed more Christian than anyone you know. So, please Please PLEASE love the Truth.

Many Strong Delusions

So, my operating interpretation is that this Strong Delusion is coming for Christians – or, at least to those who identify themselves as Christians. But…

…will it be limited to just those with a Christian identity?

I don’t think so. Of course, those outside the Body of Christ will always be vulnerable to strong delusions. History is full of people with all sorts of powerful delusions. In fact, just look around you. There are so many incredible delusions running around, that you would be excused for thinking that you’d fallen into some strange alternate reality.

There are black people who think that they are the Jews of the Old Testament.

There’s a Chinese woman who thinks that she’s the second coming of Christ.

A Vietnamese woman calls herself Supreme Master and has a TV channel blasting out her inane thoughts all over the world.

Hindus use cow poop as medicine.

Muslims murder millions upon millions of people in the name of peace.

Europeans think that socialism works.

Too many Americans think that the Earth is FLAT.

McDonalds got rid of the Quarter Pounder in Taiwan.

And, that last one has me steamed. Seriously, what were they thinking?

The point is that these profound delusions have been running around for a long time. And, there’s always someone cooking up a new one. And, when the new ones don’t work, they go back to old ones, like the one about the flat Earth.

Why?

‘cuz we’re stupid. But, I already told you that. And, it’s a sensitive subject, so let’s not talk about it too much.

Strong Christian Delusions?

The bigger question is about supposedly CHRISTIAN delusions, and whether this Strong Delusion will happen suddenly or gradually creep up on us.

So, what Christian Delusions are we talking about here?

When did they start?

Or, do we need to wait for them to start?

And, since the term Strong Delusion seems to be singular, we might want to think of WHICH of the delusions is the one that Paul is talking about.

Please jump in with your thoughts on this in the comment section. I value your input, since I cannot claim to know everything that there is to know on the subject, although taking the Quarter Pounder off the menu here must be a sign of bad things to come.

The Generation that Will Save the World – International Man

I can hardly believe what I’m about to tell you, but here it is:

Eighty-four percent of millennials admit that they don’t know how to change a light bulb.

If the light burns out, they literally do not know how to get it to work again. And, I am absolutely amazed at this.

The writer of this piece then goes on to analyze what kind of people it would take to dig out of the mess that we are about to get into. He looks at other examples of other collapses. And then, he looks back at the US and says this:

Concurrently, in the US, Canada and Europe, the generation that will be tasked with digging their countries out of depression will be the millennials. They will fail utterly at their task and they won’t reprogramme their brains to understand what’s necessary, any more than the last two generations of Cubans have. The task will fall to the next generation. It will be their children who take on the task and rebuild.

What this means is that the Greater Depression will not be brief. A recovery is likely to take twenty-five years, since another generation after the millennials will need to mature before a recovery can be effected.

And during that time, those jurisdictions will be quite a bit less than ideal as places of domicile.

If you are smart, you will get as far away from other millennials as you can. If you are a millennial, you need to learn the skills necessary to survive and thrive, when it all falls apart.

Thankfully, I live in a country that understands this. Taiwan’s people still remember the tough times, so they’ll get through what’s coming. At least, most of them.

But, the US? Canada? Europe?

U.S. SHALE OIL INDUSTRY: Not In The Business To Make Money, But To Take Money – SRSrocco Report

I posted a video last week titled…

Art Berman: Exposing The False Promise of Shale Oil

Well Steve St. Angelo saw the same video and reported on it. And, here are the first three paragraphs of his article:

The U.S. Shale Oil Industry has been a financial trainwreck since day one. And, with nearly $300 billion in public and private debt racked up by the shale industry since its inception, that hasn’t stopped investors from throwing good money after bad to continue the biggest energy Ponzi scheme in history.

Unfortunately, the worst is still yet to come because the industry hasn’t provided the market with analysis on what happens to the shale oil companies and investors holding their debt when production finally peaks forever. I don’t believe the market has any idea just how quickly and violently the U.S. Shale Oil Industry could implode. Get ready for the Sun to Set on the U.S. Shale Oil Industry.

Veteran oil analyst, Art Berman, mentioned in his interview on Peak Prosperity that he believes the oil industry “IS DONE.” He also explains why the U.S. Shale Industry is not in the business of making money, but rather, taking money. I highly recommend “ALL,” my followers to listen to the interview below as it confirms the dire energy predicament we face:

If you haven’t seen that video, you need to. It’s in the link.

Peak Oil is a civilization destroying event, and it’s already here, even though we do not feel it yet. But, we will. And, it will shake the world.

Will you be ready for this?

Kunstler: America’s “All Is Lost” Moment Looms | Zero Hedge

Jame Kunstler has hit the nail squarely on the head. He is predicting an even greater Depression than the one that we had in the 1930s – where starvation killed almost 8 million Americans. Only this time, America has twice the population and an incoming Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) that will be far, far worse than the Dust Bowl of the 1930s.

And, most of those who died, died while food was being thrown away to keep prices from going lower.

What will happen when the debt market implodes and debt-fueled oil production collapses?

Who will pay the truckers to haul the food to the cities?

Who will give the farmers the fuel to plant their crops? Especially for the crops that will be decimated by cold, as the GSM gathers force.

Who will feed the inner cities, when the current version of Food Stamps finally dies?

No one will. Americans will do like they did during the Great Depression:

Die by the millions.

In this case, it will be in the tens of millions.

Here are three paragraphs from this article that should make you shudder:

Note: the growth predicament is hugely misunderstood in this land, because the shale oil “miracle” was such a dazzling stunt. America is now producing above 12 million barrels of oil a day, two million higher than what was thought to be the all-time peak of 10 million a day in 1970. That is extraordinary indeed. We are the world’s leader in oil production now, ahead of Saudi Arabia and the wicked Russian bear. What most Americans don’t know is that this stunning feat was accomplished with hundreds of billions of dollars in borrowed money (debt) that will never be paid back.

The collateral for all that money was the conviction that there was a lot of money to be made in shale oil. But the shale oil industry has had a negative cash flow since it started around 2005. So, we’ve demonstrated that you can produce a lot of something at a big loss for a while, until you can’t. And the moment is approaching when there will be no more loans for the shale oil industry and then, voila, no more shale oil. And the USA will have a whole lot less of its primary energy “input” to the economy. We’ll be back to 2008. The turnaround will be fast and shocking and the American public will feel swindled. And having been already swindled out of all the other comforts and conveniences of what used to be modern life — a job, a home, a car — they will be even more supremely pissed off.

Enter stage left, the first woman president. Take your pick: Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand — with AOC as Speaker of the House! The new “Eleanor” will out-do Franklin Roosevelt in “innovative” economic policy. Only this time it won’t be jolly corps of brawny men marching off with pick-axes and shovels to carve trails through the national parks. It will be an orgy of collectivization, led by a gender-fluid army of commissars in an American sequel to the classic film Battleship Potemkin. Madam President will nationalize everything that’s not fastened down with square-head decking screws. Then the show trials will commence, first with the hated One Percenters going to the firing squads and then briskly moving to all the enemies of “intersectional justice.”

When FDR rose during the Great Depression, he brought in a gigantic amount of socialism. And, no one brought in more, before or since, in such a short amount of time. He lied his way into power, and he lied and lied and lied while he was in power.

So, now that a new, far greater Great Depression is coming, another leader will rise. And, he (or she) will be far, far worse, and blood will flow in the streets. Most Americans have no idea how evil their neighbors can be, when they have nothing to eat.

As someone once said, we are always only nine missed meals away from anarchy. And no, you do NOT want anarchy.

Famine killed 7 million people in USA

Here is the report on the article by Boris Borisov, titled “The American Famine”. Most of those who died, would have fallen ill from opportunistic diseases that took advantage of weakened immune systems. And, when you look at the population statistics, it should be clear that a lot of people are missing, that should not have been missing.

And, when starvation comes our way again – and it will – we will be far less prepared to survive than our forebears, almost a century ago.

A horrifying depression plus a Grand Solar Minimum plus a collapse in oil production all on top of a population that spent decades losing all morality and virtue.

Can you imagine how awful this will be?

And, soon?

The HU – Yuve Yuve Yu – YouTube

I was originally going to put this in the humor section, because… well, a Mongolian heavy metal band …called The HU?

Seriously, THE HU?

The irony was fun, and watching it was interesting, since it spoke of Mongolian history, but then it went dark. Because… apparently …there’s a Mongolian prophecy that speaks of a leader that will come and rule the world. A dark, powerful leader. And, they are calling for this leader to come.

I did not know about this prophecy. Now I do. I don’t like knowing this, to tell you the truth.

Pornhub reports spike in DC porn viewership during government shutdown – Story | WTTG

But, you need to look at the graph. These guys were watching porn while at work. Which is where Porhub saw their steepest DECLINE.

Basically, every government worker with a pornhub account, should be automatically fired. In fact, this is an opportunity to go their their work computers to find any porn activity. Just look at the graph. Pornhub had the biggest DIP in activity at 9 a.m., followed by 10 and 11 a.m.

Government workers watching porn on the taxpayer dollar. And, we are not surprised because…

China, Russia Building Super-EMP Bombs for ‘Blackout Warfare’

This article brings me back to how Omega Shock got started. Iran was planning just such an attack, and I heard about it on April 5th, 2011. And, in 2007, I predicted that this would probably be their strategy for the destruction of the United States.

Just two or three – or four, if they wanted to be thorough – would do the job. And, the problem is that America has become so evil, that this might be how God judges America.

Unfortunately, this is also how China might attempt to destroy Taiwan. We shall see. Taiwan has known about this strategy for a while, so maybe they have an answer for it.

Or not.

 

I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.Proverbs 22:3

59 thoughts on “Strong Delusion – Intro”

    • Hi Rob,

      I think that you are trying to hard to connect the dots there. There are a lot of allusions and metaphors used by Paul and the other writers of the New Testament, and they aren’t meant to be mixed together like that – assuming that I understood the point that you were making.

      However, there is a larger question that remains unanswered from a previous discussion:

      My question to you, earlier, might have gotten lost in the (e)mail. It’s about the Trinity. The concept of the Trinity does NOT say that there is only one person.

      The concept of the Trinity is that there are three persons in God. Three individual persons that are divisible but are so unified that they are identical in character, knowledge, personality, etc – i.e., One.

      So, either you agree that there is a Trinity, or it seem that you are claiming that Jesus was created by The Father – unless there is a third option.

      I’m not sure what else you could be claiming. Modalism is NOT Trinitarian.

      If you claim that Jesus was created, you must repent of this. If you are NOT claiming that Jesus had a beginning, then I misunderstood you.

      I think that you might need to go back to that article and clarify what you are saying, Rob. And again, I hope that I’m wrong in what I thought that you were saying.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Hi John!

        Please explain to me what the “firstborn of ALL creation” means to you:

        Colossians 1:13-15 who delivered us out of the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love; (14) in whom we have our redemption, the forgiveness of our sins: (15) who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation;

        In CHRIST! Rob

          • Before casting judgment please explain what these two passages are teaching us:

            1 Corinthians 1:24 but unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

            So if Jesus is the wisdom of God let’s listen to what “Wisdom” has to say about Himself:

            [DELETED BY JL]

          • Sorry John but I was never a Jehovan’s witness! I was a baptist who actually started to study the sum of Father’s Word. I realized the trinity doctrine is so confusing that it truly does make us feel like “a 2 year old trying to understand how a computer microchip works”. I also agree with this statement in that link you provided below: “As mere humans we simply can not understand the makeup of our creator.” But Father promises us His Spirit who will teach us ALL things including the relationship of the Father with His Holy Spirit and His Son:

            John 14:26 But the Comforter, even the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you.

          • Rob, the software limits the number of nested comments. I’m not deleting the ‘reply’ button. But unfortunately, there’s nothing more to talk about. You have rejected Christ. You have chosen your own intellect, instead of submitting to God. Therefore, you are lost. If God means to rescue you from your own apostasy, God will use someone else to do so. – JL

          • Jesus is a God(Deity) under His Father who is the Most High God(Deity) and we are gods(deities) too:

            John 10:34-36 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? (35) If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came (and the scripture cannot be broken), (36) say ye of him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

            Please consider EVERY passage for doctrine must only come from ALL scriptures combined:

            2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

          • Hi Rob,

            Since your faith is from intellect, and not the spirit, I doubt that there is anything that I can say that will mean anything to you. You have forsaken the mind of Christ and taken upon yourself the mind of man.

            This grieves me because it means that you will not go to heaven, and I am horrified at this thought. But, my horror at this compels me to make one last attempt to at least present some of the foundation of how we are to interpret what the Bible says.

            Let me start out by saying that the Bible has been deliberately constructed to be a puzzle. Those with the Holy Spirit, will understand. Those without the Holy Spirit, will not. In fact, you might even say that there are traps in the Bible to catch those who do not have a God-centered faith. But, those are my words. We would do better to look at the words of God:

            9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.

            10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

            11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.

            12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.

            13 But the word of the Lord was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

            – Isaiah 28: 9-13

            Because you chose a man-centered faith, you have been caught. And, we are always presented with this choice, to see with human logic or with Holy Spirit logic.

            Since you claim that Jesus is a created god, I will dispense with proof that He is God.

            Here are foundational verses:

            FIRST (Although the order is unimportant)

            For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

            – Isaiah 9:6

            Do you understand the word ‘everlasting Father’?

            The words in Hebrew are ‘Avi Ad’ (pronounced Avee Odd). That is Father WITHOUT BEGINNING. WITHOUT END.

            SECOND

            Here is another:

            1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;

            2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

            3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

            – Hebrews 7:1-3

            Melchisedec is Hebrew. It’s Mel-kee Stedek – King of Righteousness. Salem was (and is) Jerusalem. Jerusalem means, city of peace. Yeru – city of. Salem – peace. Another way of putting it, is… City of Salem. And, this Melchisedec was/is the pre-incarnate Jesus. This was NOT God the Father.

            Do you need proof?

            Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.

            – John 6:46

            I could go on, but I have work to do. And, your human intellect will reject what I have written.

            It would have been better for you to be a Modalist and claim that Jesus is also God the Father. At least then, you would not have rejected Christ.

            Rob, you are in eternal trouble. You face the just wrath of Christ, whom you have denied.

            Yours in Christ,

          • I truly appreciate your concern and do agree that the bible is a puzzle and Isaiah 28 is the key to understanding that puzzle:

            [DELETED BY JL]

        • Why do you think I have rejected Christ just because I happen to believe this passage EXACTLY as it has been written by Paul by inspiration of the Holy Spirit:

          [DELETED BY JL]

          • Rob, you are so lost, I can’t believe it. You refuse to see all the proof positive verses that directly describe Jesus as God. The Creator. Without Beginning. Without End. I’m not even going to try to convince you. You have rejected God. May God have mercy on your soul. – JL

    • Hi Ken Seeger,

      Thanks for letting me know about the Safari browser. I will look into this. I have written the post-it-note and it will sit and glare at me until I deal with it.

      Yes, I’ve been thinking about this ‘Alien Messiah’ thing too. It certainly would blow ME away. I wouldn’t believe it, but I’d be amazed at it. What an incredible show.

      (WARNING! – MARJOR RANT COMMENCING! – WARNING! THE EMERGENCY RANT NOTIFICATION SYSTEM HAS ISSUED A RANT WARNING FOR THIS COMMENT.)

      Now, you just accidentally pressed one of my buttons. The link that you gave is to a website run by Bill Salus. And, I am betting that he’s a really great guy. And, I’m not – in ANY WAY – doubting his service to God or his love of the Lord. But, this theory of his about the ‘Psalm 83 War’ is driving me nuts.

      Psalm 83 does NOT contain any language that would qualify it as a prophecy. None. Zip. Zero. Nada. Nicht!!! Nor, is there a prophet that points this out. And, just like my ranting about Daniel’s 70th Week, we should never insert meaning into the Bible, that is not already there.

      And, everyone and their grandmother is jumping on this bandwagon. For no good reason whatsoever!

      I mean, it makes me want to misuse exclamation points!!

      EVEN WRITE IN ALL CAPS!

      So, unless someone can show clearly prophetic wording in Psalm 83, Bill needs to issue a retraction and an apology for leading people into this false theory.

      It might be a minor heresy, but it’s still a heresy.

      Okay, I’ll calm down now. Just give me a minute.

      (pant!)

      (pant!)

      (THE EMERGENCY RANT NOTIFICATION SYSTEM HAS NOW ISSUED AN ALL CLEAR. RANT HAS ENDED.)

      Thanks, Ken. Good point, and I’ve had plans to look into this alien thing.

      Yours in Christ,

      • The Alien Messiah concept has been on my mind since Abba alerted me as to the message coming from the PTB.

        The History Channel just put out a two-hour special last night on the works of the horrendously misguided dude who wrote “The Chariots of the Gods”. Honestly, it sent chills down my spine. Can’t believe where this is going.

        • Hi TL2,

          Oh dear, Erich von Daniken.

          That dude isn’t just midguided, he’s an idiot and a fraud, just like Sitchen and the rest. And, that’s one of the things that gets me so… upset? in a lather? foaming at the mouth? …because it’s such complete nonsense.

          If I was an Atheist, I would still be upset at those shysters. They have all the intellectual integrity of a cockroach. They are the snake oil salesmen of our age, and I am truly disgusted by these morons.

          It’s one thing to be tricked by a clever delusion. But, to be tricked by something like this?

          I AM INSULTED!

          MY PRIDE HAS BEEN DISRESPECTED!

          HOW DARE THEY!

          Okay, I’ll calm down. But, I would hope that the Antichrist would have the decency to delude us with something more clever than this Daniken fraud. But, I’m afraid that this probably WILL be THE DELUSION, as much as this nauseates me.

          I mean, I love a good science fiction novel with space ships, aliens and big explosions. But, I know the difference between an entertaining story and reality.

          At least… most of the time.

          (sigh)

          What a crazy world that we live in, TL2.

          Yours in Christ,

          John Little

  1. What if this great delusion is couched in a Right-Wing hero who rescues us from the evil Left? What if the AntiMesiah brings a huge Hegelian shift to the right? What if he is moral and outwardly righteous? What if you just love him? What if he promises to protect the church and you really, really want to believe him? What if he hangs Obama and Hillary and their friends? What if he builds a Temple in Jerusalem and his armies defeat all of Israel’s enemies? Would that be a real delusion???

  2. Strong Delusion!! Is it here already? In many ways it seems so. Remember the days when democrats were the type of people that lived moral lives, and stood up against Evil!! Yeah I know that was long ago. We now live in a world of deluded people. For the life of me, I cannot understand how someone can say they believe in GOD, BIBLE, and TRUTH, and know how they vote can stop a beating heart. John the Baptist recognized JESUS from the womb!! At what point do we set ourselves apart. It seems the whole world has gone berserk!! If you don’t think so turn on CNN!! The promotion of lies, half truth, and deception is bearing glorious fruit. Evil is winning, while people walk around thinking that some outside source will save us. GOD sent Donald Trump to save us?? I can agree with half of that statement. I haven’t seen a politician yet that didn’t bring more evil upon we the people. If the LORD hasn’t already sent this delusion already, we cannot imagine what it will manifest as. I grew up thinking life was good, in the finest country in the world, hopefully these delusions are behind me.

    • Hey Mangledman,

      The verse that scares me is this one:

      For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

      – Matthew 24:24

      Every time I read that, I give a mental shiver. The deception will be so bad, that you and I will stop and think. We’ll still call it deception, but it will be utterly fantastic.

      And, it’s hard for me to know WHAT would make me stop and think like that. I mean, this will be the toughest deception that we will have EVER seen.

      Good points, MM.

      Yours in Christ,

  3. Well I didn’t get very far down the list, and couldn’t keep quiet. Gunowners of America did a write-up on William Barr. His name is plastered all over the nasty business of RUBY RIDGE MURDERS BY GOVERNMENT. I wonder if I need to beg MRS LITTLE to kick your pessimism meter to see if it stuck. Donald Trump knows exactly who he picks, and why. Barr is swamp critter supreme, and Trump keeps saying things that are a little off, and the list keeps getting bigger. He says he supports the 2nd amendment and he was the first to bring up RED FLAG LAW, and suddenly bills for it are already up and running, leaving me with the conclusion of why he beefed up the NDAA!! When is anything in politics just a coincidence??

    • SHHH! Don’t tell Mrs. Little! And, not so loud. I’m just trying to keep my BS detector from exploding. They’re expensive to replace, so I have to keep it dialed down a bit. And, thanks for that point about Ruby Ridge. I didn’t know that he was connected. Thanks, MM! – JL

  4. Could the Strong Delusion for Christians be they are positive they are born again and going to heaven—when they in fact are not—because they never received the Agape Love of the Truth (II Thes.2:10-12)?

    If a Christian calls Jesus Christ his Lord (Mt.7:22), has gifts of the Spirit such as faith, miracles, healing, prophecy, etc. (I Cor. 13), and believes those gifts and power prove his salvation and possession of AGAPE LOVE when it doesn’t, THAT would be STRONG DELUSION.

    Matthew 7:22-23

    “Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

    “And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” Jesus Christ

    The Redacted Christ – Part Three

    • That article is so true, Michael. Well done and well said. We keep forgetting that salvation requires transformation. And, I find very little – if any – transformation in most of the ‘Christians’ that I meet. Thank you, brother. – JL

  5. You wrote a great article this week, John. There are several great candidates for the strong delusion referred to. One of the strongest, I think, you referred to when you pointed out that not everyone who calls himself a Christian will enter heaven.

    There is a great parallel picture in Isaiah 28:14-22, where the leaders of Jerusalem made a covenant with death and and an agreement with hell. They said they were immune from judgment. God responded with a prophecy of Jesus, a foundation and cornerstone in Zion. Like with any building, everything that is stacked on the foundation must be in alignment, tested by the line and the plumb-line. God says he will lay their righteousness and judgments to the standard set by cornerstone, Jesus, “and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies.”

    If the scornful rulers of Jerusalem were to be measured against Jesus’s standard, how much more does that apply to those of us who call ourselves Christians, the living stones of His temple? Of course, that standard is impossible in our own strength, and our only hope is in His salvation. Nevertheless, a blind belief in eternal salvation has swept through the church. It is very redolent of that covenant with death and agreement with hell of the Jewish leaders. Still, in the end, it will be those who have focused their lives on him, those who do His will and worked out their salvation with fear and trembling, that will enter the Kingdom.

    Another, similar idea is in Romans 1:21-32 where people who once knew God didn’t give him due glory and reverence, but turned their worship to an image of their own creation. Their punishment was that God gave them up to lust of uncleanness and vile affections.

    It is interesting how Paul used homosexuality as a chief and obvious example of that reprobate mind, which also leads to the whole list of other sins found in verses 29-32. We don’t have to look far to see how homosexuality has colonised our culture. Even many parts of the church who haven’t embraced it openly no longer react in a Godly way, treating it like the vile perversion that it is. Sadly, the rest of the list is all too prominent in the church, too. Where is the spotless bride Jesus is coming for?

    So what is the singular strong delusion? Good question. There are so many delusions, but maybe is it simply that reprobate mind that cannot see the truth for what it is.

    • You and Michael both posted on points along the same lines. And, that parallel that you point out between our day and that of the Jews, just before their destruction is extremely apt. Excellent points, one and all, Jon! – JL

  6. John, i would love to hear more about your opinion on the flat earth nonsense…can you direct me to past writings where you have expounded on this, or is it something you would consider writing more about? My best to you and Mrs. Little, and my sympathies extended regarding the demise of your under-rated quarter pounder, friend.

    • Hi Susan,

      Yes, some people might point out that the biggest threat to Taiwan is invasion from China, but I disagree. I mean, taking the Quarter Pounder off the menu is an EXISTENTIAL THREAT. We’re talking end of the world stuff, here.

      (And, Mrs. Little returns your regard!)

      Here are a couple articles that I’ve written on the subject of the Flat Earthers:

      http://www.omegashock.com/2018/04/13/the-flat-earth-mentality/

      http://www.omegashock.com/2015/11/20/escaping-the-flat-earth-society/

      There’s more material swirling around the Omega Shock website, since I tend to deal with the subject of cognitive bias and specific forms of it, like the ‘Dunning-Kruger Effect’. I am amazed by these things, so I tend to talk about them when they pop up.

      Just understand that my obsession with the Flat Earth Society is just an excellent way of talking about the cognitive problems that we we all have. At heart, in some small way, we are all Flat Earthers.

      I hope that helps, Susan. Let me know if you want more.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Thank you so much, John. I will chew on that meat…and ask continued favor and blessing over your household and ministry.

  7. What a great article!
    Have you heard of the Message Bible? We just quit going to our church as they preach from the Message. We had never heard of it but did some research and got schocked! We found out that many other pastors in our are read it too! We have kids and now we are praying what to do next…Our area simply doesn’t have good churches, seems like there is deception in almost every church. The Message, prosperity gospel, immorality accepted….No wonder Jesus said will He find faith on earth when He returns.

    Here’s 2 links about the Message:

    • Yeah, that abomination came around AFTER I left for Israel, and I am shocked that people are reading it. And, my horror knows no bounds when it comes to corrupting the precious words of God. May the Lord God guide you to where you need to be, Rachel. My hope is that God will show you how you are to serve Him, in the midst of this. – JL

  8. I didn’t check out ALIEN articles, but I saw a movie called the 5th WAVE. It is fiction, but it throws a lot of end time scenarios. It was pretty tame as far as language, and no sex, and safe as I remember it. With project blue beam being ancient history, there are still anomalies from time to time. It is not a big thing to see cities in the skies and other strange things. I have watched that movie at least half dozen times looking for missed details, it was interesting. Delusions and all

  9. Great article Brother John!

    I wish I could explain better but I think the strong delusion is a universal belief that God doesn’t exist. Granted, this is a generalization and doesn’t specify any precipitating events that might enable this delusion. If you don’t believe God exists, you don’t believe that he is going to do anything- such as punish sin and execute judgement on the wicked.

    Before the Flood, God warned that he wasn’t going to delay judgement forever- ‘my Spirit shall not always strive with man’- meaning the point comes when He is done. Judgement is pronounced and destruction comes. Before the Flood the people became convinced that God did not exist and thus was not going to do anything to punish their wickedness right up until He did. Life- such as it was- went on right until the end.

    The men of Sodom were so convinced that God had no consequence, that when two supernatural visitors appeared- whom Abraham and Lot immediately recognized as angels- they decided to demand sex with them. The priests in the Temple before the captivity said “God does not see us”- He does not exist. And eventually, God was done. He told Jeremiah- ‘even if they repent now- I will not hear them.’

    I really do not think there are very many true atheists. I think a belief in a “Higher Power” is an innate, Universal knowledge. I think only God can pierce that knowledge.

    You hit the nail on the head with the discussion of love. Those that receive the Love of Christ, want to share that wonderful Love with others. They want to teach, preach, and heal. They are concerned with pleasing God. Receiving the love of Truth is different than just believing in God. Even the Devils believe. Receiving the Love drives out fear.

    Fear is the root cause of delusion. Fear of losing all those material possessions- “blessings that have been claimed” or fruits of “your good life now”- is what leads to belief in a rapture. People are afraid of ‘suffering wrath’ or living in an uncomfortable Tribulation world without all their comforts, that they willingly turn to fables. Fear of the Truth and what it requires is why people turn to fables like Flat-earth. Fear of giving up their hedonistic lifestyle was what conquered Sodom.

    If you have the Love of Christ, it drives out all fear. Many people are going to die, be killed in the days to come- many readers of Omega Shock. That is no reason to be afraid. That’s the worst thing they can do, and it does not matter to the Believer. We have the victory over death.

    Look at what people believe now in the Churches. I don’t have to tell anyone.

    God is not going to strive with us forever. He will turn us over to the strong delusion- He does not exist, He does not see- eat, drink, and be merry- nothing is going to happen.

    That’s just my feeling on the subject. Thanks very much for the topic, it has got me thinking alot, and thank you to everyone who has commented.

    Beware false prophets!

    Bondo

    • Hi Bondo,

      Many excellent points, brother.

      I often find myself wondering when enough is enough, in the eyes of God. And, I am deeply grieved at the heresy that many Christians hold with such enthusiasm. It’s as if the words of God aren’t all that important, and that corrupting them with our own foolish thoughts is not a big deal.

      I expect the unsaved to be corrupt. I am distressed by it, but my expectations are still low, when I look at them. But, for those who hold the truth in unrighteous hands… that is another thing altogether.

      We dare to defy the Living God, the Father of all Creation. We dare to twist the words of the Son, the one who died to save us. And, we cast aside the Holy Spirit, seeking for the praise of men, instead of a humble truth of God. THAT gets me the most.

      I am so glad that you have stepped out in faith and took up the battle with your own website:

      https://bondo77.wordpress.com/

      The more of us out there doing that, the greater the opportunity for our brothers and sisters to escape what is coming.

      God bless you, Bondo! Keep doing what you are doing.

      Yours in Christ,

  10. I must correct you on this weeks’ entry. Americans aren’t the only folk enamoured with flat earth. Canadians have drank that kool aid aplenty, too. In fact last August, there was a convention of flatearthers held in the Fantasyland Hotel (can’t make this stuff up) in Edmonton, AB.

  11. John
    I have followed you for a long time. Based in this weeks shockcast, I am very stupid!!
    Im struggling to want to LOVE TRUTH.
    I am a failure as a follower of Yashua.
    Thank you for the book. I have wanted to read this but couldn’t swing it. Today i heard it was free. Thank you. I will share this with believers i know.
    Blessings to you amd Thank you for what you for all of us and for me.
    I look forwrd to the shock letter and shockcast. I am especially grateful for your ministry.
    God Bless you and Mrs Little always.

  12. I need a new name for God. With your knowledge of Hebrew, you can help me come up with it. You know the Jehovah-jireh, Jehovah-rapha, Jehovah-shammah names? That mean He provides, He heals, He is present — I want one that means, Jehovah Who Fixes Everything. What would that be, in Hebrew? And I want a word that really means fix, as we mean it – like, there’s a flat tire and somebody fixes it. Something breaks, something fouls up, something just completely malfunctions and falls apart – and there is some ingenious and invaluable person who always knows how to fix it. I want a name like that for God.

    • Hi DRG,

      The word for ‘repair’ is Tikun or Tikkun (תיקון) and it’s pronounced ‘tee-koon’. There’s an awful magazine with that name. However, it wouldn’t be Yehova Tikun, but Yehovah Tiken (tee-ken) or יהוה תקן. The thing is that, for 95% of the life of the Hebrew language, there was nothing to repair. If it wasn’t biological, it didn’t work.

      So, you would need a ‘rophe’ or roh-fey (רופא), so Yehovah Rapha (יהוה רפא) makes a lot of sense. But, we need repairs in this day and age, so tee-ken would fit.

      By the way, I have a bone to pick with those who say ‘yireh’ (aka, Jireh and pronounced yee-ray) is ‘will provide’. The word actually means ‘will see’, as in I will see the sun come up tomorrow. Yehovah Will See. Yehovah Yireh.

      I understand WHY they did that, because it didn’t make sense in the sentence. But, people need to understand that Hebrew is very specific, and ‘Yireh’ can never be ‘Will Provide’. Ever. Not even close.

      Okay, my red button has now been ‘unpushed’.

      I hope that helps, DRG.

      Yours in Christ,

  13. Now I know I’ll be removing myself from being a subscriber. You are following in the footsteps of the evil one by saying one is lost for rejecting the Trinity. You do realize that the trinity is a doctrine devised by the Catholics? Correct? You do know that it took them about 100 years to devise it, correct? You do know that when they accepted it, it passed by a narrow margin of votes, correct? Do you have the courage to put this up to a debate on one of your blogs John? Would you continue doing the wrong thing and delete replies?

    [REST OF COMMENT DELETED BY JL]

    • Sorry Jim. I have plenty of courage, but not so much energy or time. You have rejected Jesus as God, and that condemns you. It would be a waste of time and energy to argue with you. And, please feel free to unsubscribe. No hard feelings. I’m far more concerned about where you will be after you die. – JL

  14. you have already bought the lie john….you believe that we live on a round ball that is spinning at 1000 mph. why did Joshua command the sun and moon to stand still in the sky instead of commanding the earth to stop spinning, because the earth is not spinning,….because the bible says the earth is stable and cannot be moved…..please swallow your pride and wake up to the deception. …water always finds its level no matter where it sits….you cannot fit level water onto a round ball no matter how hard you try

    • Hi DRG,

      I’m afraid that you have that a bit inside out. Remember that I was a physics major before switching to political science in college.

      Every single thing in the universe produces gravity, whether it spins or not. The spin of the Earth doesn’t produce gravity, it actually reduces the amount of gravity that we feel at the equator due to centrifugal force.

      Think of gravity as the centripetal force, that keeps us anchored to the ground, while we spin about.

      Also, notice that the Earth has a bit of a bulge around the equator.

      I hope that helps, DRG.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

      • Why thank you. I will have to look that up to understand it better. I do recall you were a physics major, and I did not even take physics 101, which I regret now. Nor political science 101, which I also regret. I took a lot of things I did not need for my major, just because I thought a well-rounded education should include them. Like botany, chemistry, medieval history. And fencing. And archery. And various philosophies and religions. All fascinating. But I never did get to physics. I knew gravity was somehow related to mass, but I thought the spinning was part of it too, and did not understand how it interacted with centrifugal force.
