This an excerpt from 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. If you don't believe that there's a fake form of Christianity based on a false sense of truth, maybe this will help.
"The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness."
"In accordance with how Satan works". I've written about this so many times. Satan wants to be God, so he uses God's own words and twists them into a false sense of truth. So people believe they're hearing the Word of God, but it is a manipulation of the truth. It sounds good, it looks good and it may even make you feel good, but it's a lie. And if the Truth is not in us we eat it up like candy corns. And instead of having a developing relationship with Christ, we have developed a relationship with a familiar spirit. Not of God, and not for our salvation. But for our destruction. The antichrist WILL NOT COME TO KILL CHRISTIANS. He will come to fulfill the work of drawing people to a fake Jesus.
Everything that is occurring is preparing you to be ready to receive a "messiah". And those who have believed the lie will welcome a fake jesus with open arms. Read it, search it out! It's right in front of us. Jesus warned us over and over of false prophets. False PROPHETS. Prophets supposedly of Him. In fact Paul starts out 2 Thessalonians 2 with a warning of a false message supposedly from him. They were doing it then, and they are doing it now. Read your Bibles. It is the only thing that will save us.
"For by grace we are saved through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."
"Faith comes by hearing, the hearing of the Word of God."
"Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
Faith only comes from the written Word of God, and His Spirit bares witness to that Word. No other. If there is no Word, there is no Spirit. And if there is no Spirit, there is no rebirth. "For you must be born again by the Spirit." This is why modern Christianity "lacks the power thereof".This is why evil is growing and the Church is dwindling.
So I challenge you today to get on your knees and get serious with God. I don't care how long you've been a Christian. I don't care how long you've gone to church. It's time to be revived by the Spirit of the Living God!
