Deception's Deceived are MANY...Who Are They? Part 2
In part one we looked at the identifiers to determine as to who may be the deceived deceivers that are deceiving MANY. Let's continue looking at the issue.
Has the the "angel of light" so deceived God's people, that their beliefs are so weak that they cannot be open to examination and questioning? Or, is it that they truly are that feeble? Have deception's deceived been so hooked by the religious agenda that they are totally ambivalent to the devils infusion that the deception they is accepted by them as truth. Is it that they cannot see the deception lies therefore, refuse to search for the truth themselves. Does that not confirm the truth of Jesus' words, “For MANY shall be coming in My name, saying, I am the Christ and shall be deceiving MANY." How readily religionists are being deceived, swallowing poisonous false teachings and practices without question.
The religionists convince themselves that this man-ordained religious routine equals "spirituality" and makes them feel righteous unaware that self-righteousness is the fruit of religion. In this state, they are easily pacified, distracted from biblical reality, controlled by their seminarian denominated leaders and are easily manipulated and educated by deceptive religious teachings. They fall so short of KNOWING God they cannot tell true men of God from the deceivers who come in the name of Christ and they sink into deeper deception. The are so in-tune to the spirit of man, they do not know the Spirit of God enough to know they are deceived by the spirit of antichrist. They are Shepperd by false shepherds!
They are followers of men and will remain so, unless the religious crust that encases them is broken. The devil has distorted and deformed the Gospel to where it is ineffective in the Community of Humanity.
Jesus said, He who has ears to hear, listen to what the "denominated seminarians" say unto the Churches...NO, NO, NO...listen to what the"SPIRIT" says'...
But yet, the burning question is: Why do people still choose to listen to man rather than the Spirit of Truth?
For years I have read and heard these words of Jesus regarding the deceived MANY, but never looked into the mirror of the written word to see if I was one of the deceived many. I always applied these verses of the “MANY” to people outside of my denominated group. So many times I heard, “….MANY shall say unto Me in that day…AND DECEIVE THE MANY….,” and yet I did not hear, see, or really believe that it could apply me and my denominated group as well as any other. There were times when I asked questions regarding our doctrine and beliefs, but was reminded that such questions caused splits and division, and I should flow with the trained denominated Bible experts who understands these things.
We have a responsibility to ourselves and to others to "Study to show our-self approved unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15. As I got serious about following this advice I found that I was one of the ones being deceived and treating the fables of men as the oracles of God and began to see how much religion and denominationalism was responsible for stifling the Community of the Redeemed from influencing the Community of Humanity with the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The problem with most Bible reading religionists is they do not interpret the Bible and let it formulate what they are to believe, they read it and interpret it in light of what they already believe as taught by the seminarian trained expert, and to find proof as to that belief. I know because that is the way I use to read and interpret the Bible. I thank God that I saw how dangerous this kind of Bible abuse was and how it led me down the garden path of deception and into the garden of deception that was so convincing I was blinded to the truth.
Every believer needs to question themselves if they know what they believe as truth is really truth, or deception's lies that is accepted as truth.
People carelessly and mindlessly accept a teaching or practice just because it comes from “their denominated denomination” or “their professional denominated pastor,” this is very troubling in light of the apostle Paul's words: For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. (Acts 20:29-31)
The Spirit says clearly that some people will abandon the faith in later times; giving heed to deceiving spirits and teachings of devils. (1 Timothy 4:1)
The apostle Peter warns of the same: "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in destructive, untrue teachings, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their destructive ways; by reason of whom the way of truth will be defamed." (2 Peter 2:1-2)
