“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect,” Matthew 24:24.
“No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds,” 2 Corinthians 11:14-15.
Just as the winter snows have now finally begun to melt and the temperatures have slowly risen, one can begin to see that we are entering into a new season.
The season of spring brings with it new growth and the promise of tulips and various other flowers. One hears the sounds of birds as they sing their joyous melodies and anticipate the new season that is soon to come.
And also we to as fellow creatures long for the fresh breezes that come sweeping over the hills and through the trees beyond.
One sheds their heavy clothing and winter coats in favor of lighter jackets and more suitable wear. Even the weather itself seems to lend a sense of hope and encouragement to many.
And yet even with the change of the seasons and the promise of warmth, the air itself exudes a sense of foreboding and unease. For the spiritual tides are shifting and they echo a harbinger of ill fate and approaching gloom.
We are entering into a new time frame and indeed, this new season I believe, will propel us into the approaching days of darkness that will befall not only our nation but of the world at large globally.
The prophetic time table that is written down in the annals of heaven has a mandate and its pages are to come forth as they are purposed under the very arm and deliberate stroke of the Almighty.
For even as many would pray that judgment would be softened the heavenly pendulum must strike and will come in spite of mankind.
We have long since reached that universal juncture that could have prevented the arm of judgment to fall. The stage is set and many of the characters that are now present around you will begin to make their moves on the global chessboard.
We are told that if possible even the very elect could be deceived, and my friends, it seems that this is indeed the case. For many around us who proclaim to have eyes to see and ears to hear, have lost their spiritual sight.
Their ears have become dull of hearing for they only hear the loud discordant promises shouted from the circus tent.
They hear the,
“Come one, come all, to the greatest show on earth. Gaze upon the great promises that I will bring to this land. Know indeed, that I will protect you if you only choose to follow after me.”
“Listen not to those who speak ill of me, for I alone can fix it. I alone am he that can be the greatest among you. I surely will bring peace to the world, yea and even the Middle East — for I am the great negotiator. No one else can solve the world’s problems like me.”
“Come one and all to the large tent and drink of the elixir that I have for you to drink. Take a huge draught of this and soon you will see that my intentions are to make everything great again. I will make this land the greatest that it could ever be! You will be protected from the infidels. Don’t listen to your news reports for they are all a lie. Only listen to those who would give me the highest praise.”
“Look upon those hideous other creatures in my side show and gaze upon their infirmities. I must make fun of them because they are laughable and they don’t represent what is great among us. But think not that I would not care for even the least one of you . I will bring you plenty and ease. I will lift your taxes and give you more wealth, for I know how to make wealth on the backs of the weak.”
And so my friends even as the season changes from winter into spring, know that we cannot trust our senses just because all seems to give forth a new beauty and growth.
Our eyes must be enlightened to the plans of our enemy and to see into his dark dungeons and the plans that he has formulated.
Not all is as it seems, and even when some promises may seem right in the eyes of some, don’t trust in their brilliance or in their charm, for we know that the enemy comes even disguised as an angel of light.
Now is the time to have eyes of deep discernment seeing the thoughts and the intentions of the darkened hearts around us.
Ask for Godly wisdom for indeed, He will give it.
