The Self-Deception of the Deceivers; the Ultimate Deception
I wonder if you hate being lied to as much as I do. As far as my interactions and relationships go, it is hard to think of something that galls me more than being intentionally deceived. Have you ever wondered why being lied to is so deeply wounding? I think it is because it goes to the core of our very personhood. Being lied to is in essence a declaration that you are nothing, you are mere insignificance personified. It mitigates against all that is in us that requires a just sense of worth and value as human beings created in the image of God. It is like saying, “you are a non-person.”
Unfortunately we live in a fallen world rife with deception. The use of some manner of deception is prominent in almost every walk of life. It is in our politics, our mass media, the entertainment industry, in advertising, in international relations, in the writing of history, in our educational system, throughout the business world and our economic system. Deception also plays a major role in our religion but that is a study in itself for another article.
I would like to accomplish two things in writing this article. One would be to convince readers to always place everything you are studying, learning, and believing into the greatest context you can discover. The second would be to convince you to absolutely love truth, regardless of how disarming, challenging and personally exposing it is. We are going to ultimately discover that proofing what we learn contextually and having an absolute love of truth are our greatest weapons in defeating deception.
A good place to start might be in admitting that none of us is immune to deception. If we think we are, we have already fallen to the wiles of the Devil. After all, Adam and Eve were placed in a perfect environment but they inevitably fell to the enemy’s deception.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word “deceive” thusly: to cause to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid. It is amazing that something seemingly so simple to understand could become the principal tool of destruction of our arch enemy. The Bible teaches us that Satan was a liar from the beginning and the father of lies. It says that when Satan lies, he is speaking his native tongue, his original and primary language. This is undoubtedly Satan’s weapon of mass destruction in attempting to thwart God’s Kingdom plans and establish instead his own kingdom, enslaving all humanity and separating them eternally from the presence of God.
This effort by Satan to counter God’s eternal purposes may give the appearance of being a vast cosmic war with the outcome still pending. However, as those who read and believe the Bible we know that Satan is a tool in the hand of God and that we will ultimately rule and reign with Christ in his kingdom right here on earth. However, as we look out across the global landscape today there is every appearance that Satan is winning the battle and having his way in every dimension of life. Interestingly, his minions here on earth, those who have sold their souls to the Devil, seem thoroughly convinced they are in charge and will ultimately control and determine the final outcome of all they are pursuing.
There are several great deceptions in play at the present time that appear to be guiding events in an anti-Kingdom of God direction. For purposes of clarification I have broken down this army of evil into four classes: the workers, the shot-callers, the string-pullers and the principalities who serve the bidding of Satan. The workers are simply the underlings who carry out the day to day activities that serve the purposes that uphold Satan’s grand design for himself. The shot-callers are those who appear to be making decisions and giving the orders. The string-pullers are those hidden behind the scenes who are involved in the real planning, decision making and giving of orders. Yet beyond these people are the real movers and shakers in the heavenlies who directly carry out Satan’s commands. The workers, shot-callers and string-pullers are the ones set up for the ultimate deception. They are the deceivers who function out of the fog of self-deception.
The present deceptions designed to move events for the destruction of life as we have known it in this world are very much related to the “pandemic,” the vaccination hysteria, cultish climate change, and globalism. The depth and breadth of these and other deceptions being foisted on the American people and the world can readily be ascertained by diligently searching the Internet. The so-called “pandemic” is probably the greatest and most evil ruse every perpetrated on humanity. The primary purpose of the “pandemic” was to create fear among the populace and then introduce lethal, untested and unproven vaccinations. Personally, I am not willing to have a discussion regarding climate change until the government stops intentionally manipulating the weather. As long as they are radiating the atmosphere and pumping tons of destructive chemicals into the air (research chemical trails), the climate change issue remains nonsensical. The push for globalism under the guise of fostering world peace and prosperity is their thinly veiled effort to utterly destroy the sovereignty of peoples and nations around the world.
If we fail to ascertain and comprehend the incredible depth of corruption that thoroughly permeates every aspect of our national, state and local governments, we are of all people most to be pitied. Although we know that our ultimate salvation, our ultimate security is in the Lord Jesus Christ, wisdom enjoins us to constantly study the actions and motives of those making decisions affecting our everyday lives. One of the ways we accomplish this is by always attempting to discover the larger picture or context for what is transpiring. Most of the everyday decisions affecting our lives for the most part don’t seem to make a lot of sense. However, when you start digging, looking behind the scenes so to speak, you can discover the nefarious motives leading up to those very decisions.
These corrupt workers, shot-callers, string-pullers and principalities truly believe they are going to pull off the greatest usurpation of human life the world has ever known. Please research Agenda 21/30 and the Georgia Guide Stones to grasp the greater picture. As I write these words farmers are receiving letters from government officials telling them they will be paid to plow their crops under and destroy their livestock. Failure to comply with this mandate will result in a loss of agricultural subsidies and a reduction of the product price if they choose to sell their crops. What else could this represent but an attempt to create a food shortage eventuating in starvation for the American people? Couple this with the severe draught in California and other western states, an area that produces most of our food, and you begin to get the picture. Weather manipulation has been going on for nearly eighty years. Why aren’t we using that technology in a positive manner to correct the situation in the west?
This evil class of people who have no belief in God, no allegiance to country, and no conscience are setting themselves up for an eternal crash. They are the epitome of self-deception. As believers in Jesus Christ and followers in his steps it is imperative that we live in such a way that we never fall prey to the same peril. We need to consistently press into the Lord every day, deepening our relationship with Him and actively seeking and embracing truth. Scripture is very clear in this regard; those that fail to love the truth are doomed to deception. For this reason, it behooves every believer to diligently search the Scriptures daily for oneself. We need to be like the Berean Christians who “…received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.”
