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.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
Mark 14:62 And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
Revelation 1:7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Everyone should keep their eyes on the sky. This is the direction that Jesus Christ said he would come. No matter your theological persuasion, most see this as the truth. Jesus Christ will appear at the end of the current Earth trouble, we call the tribulation, in the sky. With this in mind, let us see how the blind shall see. The blind here are those who are in society today that are blinded to the true Gospel and who the True Savior is.
To begin with, let us consider the three reasons why I believe “the blind shall see” will come to pass. First we know that society did not and has not received the truth concerning Jesus Christ. This all encompassing truth is found in the message of the bible, the gospel, and the cross. The simplicity of the message is that God the Father loved us so much, he sent his only son to die on the cross for our sins. If you repent of your sins, make Him Lord of your life, and follow him you will be saved. Because society, according to scripture will not believe or respond to this offer, God will send them a delusion. This delusion is the second reason why the following is a main point to consider. Satan, the arch antitype of Jesus Christ loves to mimic God. He would like to be God. To many, Lucifer is their God. He is known by many names, but Lucifer the light bearer is the one that his followers are heralding to bring forth his rule on this earth. This role of Lucifer will be as the ‘son of perdition’ in 2 Thessalonians 2. The third reason is that God will actually send a delusion in the air. People will see this delusion in the clouds. Many people today are looking for a universal ‘Cosmic Christ’. So they literally believe that this ‘Cosmic Christ’ is the spirit that makes up the Buddha, Mohammed, in all men, and is also manifested in many other ways. This Christ doesn’t have heaven or hell. He is not in need of sending salvation. He will be the world’s salvation by bringing them the answers they seek. The public will buy this message because of the signs and wonders that accompany him.
Moreover, one point many used to distinguish the appearance of Jesus Christ from the ‘son of Perdition’, was that Christ will appear in the clouds for all to see. It was then taken as fact, that the Anti-Christ will not appear in the sky. Satan, however, will be the tool God uses to bring forth a delusion so powerful that even the elect could believe it. Jesus refers to this power in the end time messages in the gospels. Saying in Matthew 24:26 “Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.”. Why should you not go? Because if you do go, you will be convinced this is the Christ. Thus, this is the delusion God uses to make people believe that this is the new ‘Cosmic Christ’ (Anti-Christ or son of perdition, who is to appear), is actually the real savior and ultimate truth.
The main focal point here to ponder is what main vehicle will be used to bring in this “new age” that many are waiting for. For example, Benjamin Creme is waiting for Maitreya. Creme is head of Share international. They have been heralding this Teachers’ appearance for many years. Maitreya has been reportedly seen in major events around the world as Mary, Christ, Buddha, and others. Maitreya (see the Share international site) is called the “awaited Teacher”. Share says that the one Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Krishna’s, or Moslems wait for can be found in Maitreya. He comes they say with a group of wise teachers who have long guided humanity from behind the scenes. In another example we find there are many sightings of the Virgin Mary as well. The numbers of sightings total around 1000 world wide. The Vatican also has approved a number of these as actual sightings they can verify. There are those also in the dark arts, black magic, and the occult who see a new age guru coming. This person which has long been awaited is known as “Lucifer”. He will herald in the “new world order” in its fullness.
Furthermore, we find that rituals of dark and extreme black magic have been done to herald in the “age of Horus”. This is the age when, as Alister Crowley wanted to see come to pass, the time for man to enjoy at his lusts pleasure all things that man could fill his soul with. It would be a time when man would not answer to God for what he does. This was time when uncontrolled appetites would rule at the favor to those who had them.
Horus was the one that many in the Dark magic realm believe held power to bring in this new age. Horus is the one-eyed God, whose symbol is seen on our one dollar bill. The all seeing eye will bring in this world that many want. In bringing in the Age of Horus, black magic artisans have already been engaged in the ‘Rite to Open the Passage’. This rite which is said to open the lower fourth dimensional energy which will blind the eyes and minds of those who oppose it. This 'Rite' was reportedly held in Egypt around 2000, in the fall of the year. David Icke reported that a group called 'the mothers of darkness' held the ceremony.
Add to this also is the fact that Alister Crowley professed to see a similar ceremony done. This involved a friend of Crowley named Parsons. Sources reported at the time that Parsons and Ron Hubbard held the ceremony. This ceremony was to bring in the appearance or manifestation of the daughter of Babylon. This daughter, can be seen in Revelation 17:1 riding the beast. The ceremony, did not bring in a physical manifestation of this type. Both the ceremony and Parsons were dismayed at the results.
What we see from the above is the never-ending desire of man for power and information. It also removes all societal restraints that can prevent or hinder its progress. The world is tired of the holds that Christianity has forced upon them. So they think this is the way to be free. This freedom they are binging in accepts deviant lifestyles and other unbiblical conduct. It is in this avenue where heaven and hell collide.
Now all this is blatantly opposed to the Bible. Scripture expressly reveals that man is a sinner in need of salvation. It also tells us that the ‘curse has devoured the earth’. We also find that heaven is real and hell is the place for the devil and his angels. Within its pages are found life and death, blessings and cursing. Most bible believers take this as the whole truth, which it is. Put in this the groups who are decidedly watching for their own brand of “new age” to appear and compare it with Christians waiting for Jesus Christ. Now the battle begins. Thus those who deny truth of Jesus Christ will believe the delusion that appears. This delusion has no room for traditional biblical beliefs unless those beliefs can be persuaded to co-exist with ungodly behavior. As a result, society becomes a place where those on fire for God meet head on with those who want to pursue darkness. It is even within this definition of “what darkness is” that is debatable to many. For they see that what we have traditionally called wrong as being right. They also see anyone that is opposed to them as being narrow minded. So Believers who stand up for abortion, against homosexuality or fight some other godless thing in society is seen as bigots. It is also a struggle where the church finds the heretical in its own ranks. This is where the Whore church, seen in Revelation 17 (Spiritual Harlotry, woman on the beast) enters into the picture. Thus you have what we have today. A society with no toleration for salvation, holiness, heaven, hell, and the one way of Jesus Christ. Is it any wonder the bible covers this very attitude.
Psalms 2:1 ¶Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
The world wants to break its cords from heaven and the Lord of heaven. They want to do their own thing. That desire will be fulfilled in the last days as the Lord allows the harvest of evil to mature until the crop is fully developed for harvest. Then the Lord of the harvest will send reaper Angels to bring in the harvest of wickedness.
In the battle that is just starting to heat up, those people that many Christians would say are blind to the truth, will actually see. They see things that are very real. Today the ‘Prince of the Power of the air’, Lucifer has seen to that. From the regions of darkness we find false Messiah’s, Alien abduction, spacecrafts, black magic, black miracles, new age teachings, and much more. All of these are real. They come from a real enemy who is given power to deceive. Do aliens exist? For those people abducted, their belief is that aliens do exist. Do you think that Lucifer who has been given the ultimate ticket to deceive from God, could not produce an alien or a spacecraft? This dark force could also make a false messiah appear in the sky and look real. What would your faith say if you saw just such a thing? Say you saw a spacecraft, an alien, or a supernatural figure that works black magic would you believe your eyes? What people don’t know or fully understand is, many powerful deceptions are here already. Also true, is that these same dark forces are at work in America to make this nation the foremost purveyor of the “New World Order”.
So, the deception goes on and on and on. People keep seeing Aliens and they spread the word. People see Maitreya and they spread the word. People see Mary and they spread the word. New age religion spreads the inner gospel of mans own salvation as more believe in their doctrine. Meanwhile, society puts the church out to pasture and those who believe in it.
When all this gets into full swing, the true disciple of evil will appear himself. Lucifer as the ‘son of perdition’ will step onto the world stage. He will bring in the ultimate deception by proving to peoples, tongues, and nations, he is God. He will defame and discredit the God of heaven and his Christ. He will make war with the saints and win. He will cause all people on earth to take his mark. He will rule everyone, everywhere, all the time. The God of heaven will allow this. This is the tribulation. This is the time Christ spoke about. He warned us of this time. This is what the blind will see. God on earth, ruling as God. In essence he will be Lucifer the light bearer, the ‘son of perdition’.
Luke 21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.
35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
The delusion which everyone will see is almost upon us. What will you believe? Will it be the God of heaven who sent his only Son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for your sins, or will you believe what you see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears? For this delusion will be great. You will be deceived if you do not believe in Christ. For you, all these things will be real.
