God never uses manipulation, nor does he apply us to force but allows us to freely choose to believe in Him and abide by His Word. Our union with Him is about our willingness and desire to join Him. Contrastly, satan uses manipulation, sorcery (drugs), threats, and force. He imprisons us through our choices where the Lord comes to set us free. Satan is the father of lies, so there is no truth in anything that has to do with him. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life; John 14:6.
In light of these stark contrasts, let us look at what is going on in the world today.
Lockdowns. Mandates. Fear. Those who comply and those who don’t. The don’ts are to blame and must be penalized. Cloaked in vague statistics and information to what is true or not. Who’s fingerprint is on all this? What fruit is all this creating?
The day we are in today is like no other in the history of mankind. We will be swept away through the satanic tide unless we have eyes to see and desire Truth. Those who do see will go as far away from what this spirit is inducing as humanly and spiritually possible. This is what the Lord means when He warns us: ‘Come out of her My people’ – Rev 18:4-8. No matter how religious you are, if you do not see how we must separate ourselves from this world to have nothing to do with it, you are already lost in the deception. You are of the blind leading the blind that Jesus rebuked;
Let them alone.They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.” Matt 15:14.
The test is upon us today; who do you choose to serve?
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Deceptions of the Last Hour
Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all thingsI have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
Let Truth Abide in You
Therefore let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise that He has promised us—eternal life.
These things I have written to you concerning those who try to deceive you.But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things, and is true, and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you will abide in Him.
The Children of God
And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming. If you know that He is righteous, you know that everyone who practices righteousness is born of Him. 1 John 2:15-29
