Perception is Everything!!!
Unless you are seeing things from an Eternal Perspective,
you are still blinded and concerned only with your physical, (now self)
which of course is only normal/natural. It’s Time to Broaden your Perspective
When the Apostle Paul speaks in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12 (text below) of God sending to some a “powerful delusion, so that they will believe the lie.”
I believe that this is what Paul is referring to, the matter of our Perspective. Keep in mind the wickedness Paul is referring to isn’t necessarily what you may think either, although it could be, but rather it’s simply referring to our own ways, which are in opposition to God’s Ways.
One Cannot compare themselves to other humans and think this is any measure of Holiness. It is not!
Romans 3:23; For all have sinned, and come short of the Glory of God;
God’s Holiness is so apart from anything that man can achieve, by following the ways that we may think to be the best, or to be the most acceptable.
Isaiah 64:6; But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Proverbs 16:25; There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-12; 10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the Truth and so be Saved.
11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the Truth but have delighted in wickedness. (=Man’s way & not God’s Way)
Unlike many (me included at one time) who may think that this “Powerful Delusion” refers to a Project Blue Beam style ET Invasion, or perhaps one staged by the Fallen Angels themselves; I think rather now, that it is simply people being Caught Up, in the cares of this world. Unable to look Beyond and to be concerned about one’s Eternal destination. It’s because these many reject trying to get to know God. It’s time to Awaken yourselves guys for the Time is Now Very Short!
Proverbs 1:7; The fear of the LORD is the beginning of Knowledge: but fools despise Wisdom and Instruction.
Proverbs 1:7 is referring to Reverencing God’s Word & taking Him seriously. To Realize that your Eternal Destiny Depends Upon Him & Him Alone. Put your Trust in Christ Jesus – ASAP From the heart (your inner most being) call upon the Name of Jesus and Be Saved!
Romans 10:13; For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be Saved.
Yo – I’m not putting all this out there to condemn anyone…or to make you think that I’m better than you, because I’m not! It is about Christ and Him Crucified. So that one Fine Day, we all may be able escape this Trap, and Live together in Eternity.
