And the Lord, your God is testing.
He will get your attention; God warned us about him. Well, He first warned His chosen people. So, what did they do? They rejected their Messiah; politics & religion blinded them. Don’t be blinded!
“If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder comes true, of which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let’s follow other gods (whom you have not known) and let’s serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall follow the Lord your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him.” (Deuteronomy 13:1-4 NASB)
Dreamer of dreams, as in one world order, and an idol that speaks is in Satan’s last show. In the meantime, this buyer of souls has those who rise up to mislead. When I think of signs and wonders, I think of the ones recorded in the first five books of the Bible. Mass hypnosis, practiced by magicians of dark arts, is obvious today when watching foolish human displays in religious congregations. Others mislead with doctrine, and many more drug the conscience with feelgood messages. The largest enslaves through guilt and fear.
“And if the Lord had not shortened those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect, whom He chose, He shortened the days.” (Mark 13:20)
“for false christs and false prophets will arise, and will provide signs and wonders, in order to mislead, if possible, the elect.” (Mark 13:22 NASB)
“And then He will send forth the angels and will gather together His elect from the four winds, from the end of the earth to the end of heaven.” (Mark 13:27 NASB)
If we are the generation to be gathered, then Christ’s words must be heeded so that we are not deceived but prove to be God’s elect.
