A Strong Delusion
An article explaining the deception facing Christians (the subject is more extensively treated on the page Last Things)
The false Messiah
The Zionist annexation of Palestine is sometimes incorrectly compared with the conquest of Canaan under Joshua. Even a cursory examination shows that the events are not similar. Palestinians are not Canaanites; in fact, Palestinians are also children of Abraham. Neither do they offer their children through the fire to Moloch like the Canaanites did. At least Muslims honor Jesus as a prophet and do not call him a deceiver who practiced magic (Sanhedrin 107b, Sotah 4a) or the son of an adulteress (see Peter Schäferr, Jesus in the Talmud, Princeton University Press, 2007,pp 15–24, 133–141) or suggest that his father was a Roman soldier. Furthermore, Muslims expect Jesus to return to earth and defeat the anti-Christ. That is closer to the truth than Judaism (Talmudism). So, who shows more respect for the Messiah……the Jews who reject and despise him or the Muslims who honor him as a great prophet? Moreover, if Muslims are misguided on certain things whose fault is that? Muhammad married a Jewish woman called Khadija. She was the 40-year-old Jewish first wife of the much younger Muhammad. The Quran is predominately based on the Jewish Talmud not on the Torah. However, Muhammad was an illiterate merchant who traded regularly with Jews. Who helped him write down his visions? Whoever helped him to compile the Quran, (whatever else can be said) was aware of and used the Jewish Talmud and Rabbinic halacha . Islam should therefore be understood as a branch of Rabbinic Judaism, which explains why Islam is also obsessed with Law (Shariah law). Judaism is truly the mother of Harlots. Moreover, the Talmud is not the Torah. The Talmud was written in demonic Babylon (it is even called the Babylonian Talmud) as the prophet said; “To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base” (Zech 5v.11). Notably the Hebrew word used for “base” is the same Hebrew for the base of the two brass temple pillars Jachin and Boaz denoting that Yahweh had established them (the nation) in strength (i.e., in his covenant promises). But those brass pillars were taken away to Babylon and melted down. In Zechariah the “base” (using the same word) is depicted as one that the Jews established (the woman called lawlessness) for themselves in Babylon. All the “Law schools” (yeshivas) were established in the provinces of Babylon and in the region of the Arabian Peninsula, the two million-word Talmud was written there. No wonder Islam is also obsessed with law (Shariah) and has similar food requirements etc.
Unlike in the time of Joshua, Zionist Jews were not commanded by God to conquer the land. Moreover, the promise of long life in the land given in Deuteronomy was contingent on obedience (Deut 4.26). Disobedience would result in cursing. The modern return of Israel is in unbelief. They are still a valley of dead (unclean) bones. They have manipulated (and are still manipulating) the nations to achieve a “Greater Israel” through their own strength. The nation has brought untold suffering to the Middle East through her neoconservative control of the USA and will bring more war, more bloodshed and financial collapse upon the world before they are done.
Muslims are said to be idolaters, and this is used to justify atrocious Zionist behavior against them. While it is true that Muhammad converted the pagan Arab tribes from idol worship it is untrue to declare that they are still idol worshipers. A similar claim is also made in the Talmud against Christians – who are also called idolaters.
This is surely the ultimate irony as the Jews themselves committed idolatry with the Golden Calf as soon as they were liberated from Egypt, worshiping the creature rather than the creator and celebrating with an orgy (Rom 1.25-32). Even worse is the fact that the Jews turned the temple into an “idol” as Stephen pointed out it was “made with hands” like the Golden Calf (Acts 7:41,48). Stephen was put to death by the Jews for telling this truth. God did not even want a temple but was perfectly happy with a temporary dwelling place (2 Sam 7.6) because that dwelling place was his Son, Jesus Christ. Yahweh would build a house for David not the other way around!
However, Jews are still determined to build the Third Temple like they did when they elected the false Messiah “Bar Kochba” (declared the messiah by the chief Rabbi Akiva), who recommenced sacrifice for three-and-one-half years before the rebellion was crushed by Hadrian and Jerusalem was officially renamed and became a gentile city from which the Jews were banned (Rev 11:2).
Even though God has punished and scattered them multiple times they have learned nothing from these patterns (and apparently neither have some Christians). The Jews are determined to build a Third Temple and what was a fringe idea driven by fanatics is now going mainstream (please read the excellent articles linked below). Some Christians give the Jews unqualified support in this endeavor which they justify by misreading scripture as God has clearly said that Jesus’s sacrifice is “once and for all” that Jesus is the “temple” and he is also the new “high priest”. It seems that Christians (as well as Jews) crave a physical building with all its ostentatious ritual despite God removing the temple twice and stating he didn’t want a temple in the first place because true worship is in Spirit and Truth. (John 4) The promotion of Sodomy (Tel Aviv=gay capital), a Third Temple (=idol) and false religion (Talmudism=traditions of men) qualifies for the classification “idolatry” and “adultery” because the Jews are unfaithful to God and reject his Messiah – Jesus Christ. So, religious Jews and Zionists (and their Christian supporters) who wish to demonize Muslims as subhuman idol worshipers so that they can dehumanize them and happily slaughter them or remove them from their lands need to take the BEAM out of their own eye first.
As the apostle Paul says (to his fellow Jews) –
“You, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself?
You who preach against stealing, do you steal?
You who say that people should not commit adultery,
do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols,
do you rob temples?” (NIV Rom 2:21-22)
Paul is basically saying that they are hypocrites and are projecting. Nothing has changed.
Moses predicted that God would raise up someone like him (Deut 18:15), from among their brethren (therefore a Jew) who would act as a spokesman (translated as prophet). The Muslims understand this as a reference to the messenger (Mohamed) when it is obviously about the Jewish messiah and is used as such by Stephen during his defense (Acts 7.37). However, Jesus is more than a mere “prophet” and those who wish to portray Jesus as some sort of Zionist storm trooper who will rescue an unrepentant people should be careful because God is going to use the surrounding nations to punish Israel again and the greatest enemy that Jesus has defeated is “sin and death” which is the enemy of all mankind. The New Testament refers to the Deuteronomy passage in John 1:45 – “Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth...” One of Jesus followers recognize Jesus as the predicted Messiah;
“Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him,
Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!
Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus
answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee,
when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. Nathanael
answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God;
thou art the King of Israel. (John 1:47-49)
The context is that there was no guile (deceit, trickery) in this Israelite. In other words, no Jacob in this Israelite (because the name Jacob means deceiver or guile, trickery). God’s plans for his people will not be accomplished by lying, trickery or deceit such as the Jews practice, salvation will come only by acknowledging (like Nathaniel) that Jesus is the Messiah (follow the links below for a full explanation of this passage).
This is not about the “personal intervention” of Yahweh against “Israel’s enemies”. This is about a people who have acted deviously, who are stubborn and unrepentant. God is about to unleash the last vials on the Jews and on all nations and all Christians who have been seduced by her. The message is to repent and stop acting like an apologist and promoting Zionism ……Christians should act like real “watchmen for Zion” like real prophets, not like Zionist apologists.
“So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel;
therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die;
if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man
shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand”.
Here follow four articles written about 20 years ago but they have aged well, (although some of the links in the notes may have degraded or are redundant). What is significant is that the things I warned about back then are now even more apparent.
Footnote clarification: It is speculated that Khadija was a Jewish-Christian. It seems that many Ebonite Christians settled in the Hejaz area of the Arabian Peninsula One of the first men to believe in the prophethood of Muhammad was possibly an Ebionite (sometimes argued to be Nestorian) monk named Waraqah ibn Nawfal, the cousin of Mohammed's wife Khadija, who Muslims honor as a pious man with deep knowledge of the Christian scriptures. See; The Original Jewish Christians were… Muslims? https://modwestmuse.wordpress.com/2016/09/23/the-original-jewish-christians-were-muslims/and the following thread https://soc.religion.islam.narkive.com/q78rZh2x/khadija-a-christian
Of course, it is all a conspiracy. The fact that Trump’s biggest supporter is a Jewish billionaire that his son-in-law and daughter are Jewish is a coincidence (sic). At least we can counterbalance that with some “realpolitik” and the UK is not under the same influence; Johnson’s maternal great-grandfather, Elias Avery Lowe, was a Moscow-born Jew born to a textile merchant. Johnson confirmed this in a 2007 interview for the Jewish Chronicle.
“I feel Jewish when I feel the Jewish people are threatened
or under attack, that’s when it sort of comes out,” Johnson said.
“When I suddenly get a whiff of anti-Semitism,
it’s then that you feel angry and protective.”
Iran has “seized” another tanker. The only trouble is that further investigation shows that the tanker was smuggling a small amount (700,000 liters) of petroleum out of Iran. The petrol in Iran is subsidized so smuggling it out and selling it would have netted about half a million dollars (chump change). Gen. Ramezan Zirahi, a navy forces commander in the Guard, was quoted by Iran’s Fars News Agency as saying the fuel had been transferred to the vessel from another ship, and was bound for Arab countries in the region when it was impounded. The Panamanian tanker, MT Riah, seized by Iran last month was confirmed to have been smuggling by Panama's Maritime Administration. However, if Israel wants war there will be war.

It is obvious that the picture Pompeo distributed was artificially darkened to make Zarif look more "devilish". The background was manipulated to make it look like a rough unpainted wall. Additionally vignette was added to put a dark halo around Zarif's head. It is also the only picture in which he was not smiling.

Diplomatic negotiations have moved into the delicate phase of name calling. Trump has been called retarded and mental and Iran has been threatened with obliteration. I wonder where the Iranians got the idea from?
Iranian President calls White House 'mentally retarded'
In order to understand the big picture you need to select the link below the thumbnail to get the "big" map.
If we are going to descend to the level of the "playground" then let us use the analogy. We have a big playground with two gangs. One gang calls themselves Shia and the other gang calls themselves Sunni. They both want to be in charge of the playground. We have a smaller kid who has pushed into the playground and has a special relationship with the headmaster (who some consider retarded). The small kid was often bullied when he was younger. He cries a lot and was forced to move away because he was naughty but now he wants his spot in the playground back. The small kid who has claimed a part of the playground has kicked out another kid and won't let him play marbles in the corner anymore. Some consider the small kid a bully always running to the headmaster (who he has some kind of hold over) and telling tales. Suffice to say the small kid and the headmaster had a good idea. What if they suck up to the Sunni gang? If they can get the Sunni gang to ignore the kid who wants to play marbles in the corner then the Sunni gang together with the retarded headmaster and the crying kid can beat up the Shia gang and have the playground to themselves. And they lived happily ever after (NOT). Because bad actors like that always end up slapping, pinching and pulling each others hair. And the chief of the board of governors is coming to inspect the playground and the school. And he will kick the backside of that retarded headmaster, the small crying kid and all the gangs until they say that they are sorry. He did the same thing to the naughty cry baby a long time ago and the kid is still not sorry:
"When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh,
what will he do unto those husbandmen?
They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those
wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other
husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits
in their seasons" (Matthew 21:40-41 ).

Medieval Times in the Modern Middle East

Below are some links to must read articles that delve deeper into the Iranian tanker incident. Often the truth is only found in the alternative media although sometimes the comments under the articles can be abrasive and often rude or down right racist some of the comments carry useful insights.....here is one such comment:
So in summary, this is another idiotic WMD false flag event.
This blog is not partisan to either Israel, Iran or the USA. We stand against hypocrisy and lies. Iran is a Shia Muslim community and it is under sharia law. It is an imperfect society and has many flaws. It reserves the right to self-defense and should not have war thrust upon it. Iran inherited the legacy of ancient Persia and on the whole treats its Jews and Christian communities with respect. Israel is a Zionist state that has returned in unbelief, it has demonstrated itself to be belligerent and aggressive and religious Talmudists are intolerant. America is a world Empire controlling the reserve currency Petro dollar ("In God we Trust") it has become morally corrupt, controlled by special interests and promotes the welfare warfare industry of the deep state. Within this paradigm Christian-Zionists form the "mouth piece" for special interests and shamefully align themselves with the king of this world.

The above image (large version) shows the weakness in the narrative. Most people will believe what they are told because "the lady on the TV news said it was true". It is obvious that the general public is treated with contempt and the powers that be don't even try very hard anymore to construct a plausible narrative. It has become blatant and in your face.
Karl Rove (George W. Bush's senior advisor and chief political strategist. On February 8, 2005, Rove was appointed deputy chief of staff in charge of policy) is a good example of how these people think:
The aide said that guys like me were "in what we call the reality-based
community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions
emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and
murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism.
He cut me off. "That's not the way the world really works anymore.
" He continued "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create
our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously,
as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you
can study too, and that's how things will sort out.
We're history's actors … and you, all of you, will be
left to just study what we do." 
All politicians operate within an Orwellian nimbus
where words don't mean what they normally mean,
but Rovism posits that there is no objective,
verifiable reality at all. Reality is what you say it is, ...
No it is not. You will face the reality of Judgement Day and will realize that truth and justice are absolute and they are What God says it is. In the meantime this blog will will employ truth and satire to expose the lies. Israel will have no peace until they return to God. They cannot "create their own reality". All war mongers will be punished whether they be Jew or Gentile as will all who make and worship a lie.

This blog has reported on the build up to war – the war drums are beating in the Middle East and it seems likely that a false flag was perpetrated against tankers in a UAE port but for some reason that “attack” was quickly discarded. The ABC program “Planet America” has a good report on the sabre rattling- spool forward to 34.23 minutes for the report:
The alternative media UK column has a short section on the fact that Spain withdrew its frigate from the carrier fleet accompanying the Abraham Lincoln:
Main stream media is largely silent on these issues. The USA has been warning of an “imminent” attack for some time and were contradicted by a British General.
Get your story straight boys! Please sing from the same hymn sheet.
Anyway, the USA evacuated its embassy in Baghdad in the Green Zone on the hand of “reliable intelligence” (canned laughter) and it is a good thing they did because…because…as soon as they did it……(((someone))) shot a rocket.
No, this is not the actual rocket just one that I prepared earlier (a bit like (((someone else)))). Anyways, looks like we got a reason for war now. I can already see Bolton putting on his war paint.  At least Bolton is no longer insulting our intelligence with WMD (found them yet?)like he did last time. There must be trouble ahead because Trump has fired off a tweet (not a rocket);
Do you wanna fight? Well do ya? Make my day punk. This is all pure Kabuki theater and would be funny were it not for the psychopaths running the show. In the meantime the Israeli Ambassador celebrates the “Altar of holiness” (LOL) a reference to the US embassy in Jerusalem and specifically to the US relationship. It seems that Jerusalem is determined to ride the beast into the abyss. In his own words;
“Is Israel getting stronger? Look, Israel is growing stronger for two reasons.
Number one, the objective metric by which Israeli measures itself, the most
important one, is how strong is its relationship with the United States and
on how many levels.
And that keeps growing and growing and getting stronger and stronger and
stronger. And the second is, Israel has one secret weapon that not a lot of
Israel is on the side of God, and we don’t underestimate that”.
U.S. Ambassador Says Israel Is ‘on the Side of God’ and that sounds suspiciously like Blankfein from Goldman Sachs claiming that they were doing “God’s work” but then the Talmud does say that “What a Jew steals from a gentile he may keep” (Sanhedrin 57a). However, we must refrain from criticism as this could be seen as anti-Semitism. It is a good thing therefore that the CUFI is watching out for the Jews:
“As Christians, we must continue to act upon the Biblical mandate to
bless Israel by opposing anti-Semitism in all its forms. We are prepared
to act when others threaten, attack, and demonize Israel. We are never
bystanders in the face of such evil,” he added”.
A pity that “blessing Israel” means that we should refrain from criticism, refrain from telling them hard truths and refrain from preaching messiah to them. What sort of “blessing is that”? Have ye not read?
“As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes:
but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes”

We might be heading into “war by accident” as the recent sabotage of tankers at a UAE port demonstrates. Of course Iran is saying that it is a “Psyop” or “False flag” and they threaten to retaliate against Israel if they are attacked.
The tanker sabotage was at first denied (?) but is now fairly well established as screenshots of this Arabic video report demonstrates:
As Russia Today reports; the Norwegian ship "André Victoria", which was subjected to subversive acts in the Fujairah against four ships near the territorial waters of the UAE, received a powerful blow that almost led her to sink.
Senior State Dept. official Brian Hook responded with "no comment" when asked if Iran was to blame for the alleged attacks on the commercial vessels near the vital Strait of Hormuz.
As the seventeen “intelligence agencies” do not seem to know who did it we thought we might give them a helping hand by conducting a poll where you the reader can give them a clue where to start looking. So in the best tradition of the “who done it” genre we ask you to indicate the culprit who is keen to start WW3:
Please help the intelligence agencies as they do not have a clue. It might be a bearded man in a cave somewhere but rumor has it they do not like getting their feet wet.
PEPE ESCOBAR: Iran Squeezed Between Imperial Psychos and European Cowards

I hope prophecy day is not indicative of the state of prophetic understanding as it was predominately a political analysis and a poor one at that, full of factual errors and what the world calls “fake news”. The problem is that the “analysis” begins with a particular “world view” and all “facts” are made to fit, even if it means ramming a square peg into a round hole. It is difficult to know where to start as so many skewed perspectives are co-opted and conflated. The “world view” supposes that Europe is moving closer to Russia and becoming more Catholic which is both counterintuitive (and even contradictory to the narrative presented in the talk itself). The speaker himself highlighted that the problem was Islamisation and mass immigration. If this is placed against future European demographic trends it demonstrates that Europe is becoming more Muslim not more Catholic. If anything Europe is moving away from Christianity. Figures show a majority of young adults in 12 countries have no faith, with Czechs least religious. Some Catholic bishops are even calling for churches to be converted to mosques! The current Pope is one of the least liked by Catholics, even (especially) in Italy.
Europe is not moving towards Russia, it is nationalism (populism) that is tearing Europe apart not uniting it. Both Salvani (Italy) and Orban (Hungary) are Trump admirers not “Russophiles”. Trump’s ex-campaign manager is on a mission to steer Europe to the right not towards Russia! Orban is not an anti-Semite he is simply opposed to George Sorros, the Jewish billionaire who funds the “Open Society” (borderless Europe and mass immigration), Orban even visited Israel and Israel itself is opposed to Sorros. So, the “prophecy” talk was full of factual errors and fake news.
But this is just the beginning of a faulty political analysis dressed up as “prophecy” with Macron highlighted as the “saviour” of Europe. Macron wants to push for further integration (of ‘ever more Europe’) and joins such salubrious previous winners (sic) of the Charlemagne prize as the globalists Tony Blair and Bill Clinton. Macron is a globalist banker………a manufactured product whose popularity is already falling. Merkel is already watering down Macron’s plans. The fight In Europe is not between left and right or Russia and the West or between Christianity and Islam but between nationalists and globalists ---and the tide is turning against the globalists. The facts on the ground contradict the premise of the talk – Europe is becoming more nationalist and Catholicism is losing ground (especially after the abuse scandals) and the nationalist are more orientated to the US and Trump.
Russia – a little history helps
Russia was attacked twice by Europe; during the French invasion of Russia by Napoleon, (known in Russia as the Patriotic War of 1812) and when Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union in 1941 (in the largest German military operation of World War II). No wonder Russia surrounded itself with “satellite states” as a buffer against European aggression! The current annexation of Crimea is a direct consequence of a CIA coupe in the Ukraine.
The United States has interfered in the elections of at least 85 countries worldwide since 1945. To depict “Russia” as “the great deceiver” is not a balanced view. Moreover, Trump, derided for his stance on NATO contributions has followed previous presidents in demanding a fair contribution but he is the only one that has been effective in obtaining a better deal. Trumps remarks regarding German dependence on Russian gas were ruthless and deliberately rude but had the intended effect (increased German contributions to NATO and deals with US – gas suppliers). Germany may well portray the deal with Russia as “mutually beneficial” but Russia has its hand on the gas-tap and has other outlets for Russian gas. So, Trump was entirely correct in pointing out German dependence on such a strategically important commodity.
Leaving aside nuclear weapons there is no comparison between Russian conventional military might and American. The US spends $554,2 billion dollars a year in comparison to Russia’s $69,2 billion dollars. The state of Texas has a bigger economy than Russia. As one military expert remarks-- "The bottom line," he says, is that "while NATO has genuine worries on what a short-term conflict with Russia might look like, the reality is that this is the world's pre-eminent military alliance, at the core of which is still an incredibly potent military power, and a sustained fight would probably end disastrously for Moscow." If Russia were not a nuclear power it would already have been relegated to the dust bin of history (like Libya, Iraq and Iran next). Moreover, the “unprecedented” détente between Trump and Russia is not “shocking” when seen within the historical perspective of attempts by other US presidents. So, more fake news culled from the likes of CNN and democrat biased media. Russia is just a handy “bogeyman” to justify interventionism and huge military expenditures by the American “deep state” (Military Industrial Complex) to secure its power. So, regarding “deception” and military, economic power the USA wins hands down. Russia is a bit player.
Russia and Assyria?
Russian deception is likened to Assyrian deception in the time of Hezekiah. Assyria was skilful in propaganda and use of deception but the analogy with Russia does not hold water because Assyria declared “Holy War” against Judea. YLT Joel 3:9 Proclaim ye this among nations, Sanctify a war, stir up the mighty ones, Come nigh, come up, let all the men of war. This was “Holy war” (cf. Jihad) is a war between the God of Israel and the god of Assyria – between Yahweh and Asshur. Hezekiah was saved after pleading (in the temple) with his God and Sennacherib was slain by his sons in the temple of Asshur. Russia is interested in expanding its sphere of influence not declaring “holy war” on Israel. I wonder which peoples would like to proclaim a Jihad against the God of Israel, kill the Jews and take their land?
Where is Israel?
Israel was scantly mentioned in the first two talks. This is strange in talks dedicated to “bible prophecy” but hardly surprising as the role of Israel is in the traditional view completely absent in the Apocalypse.
If we desire to equate “political analysis” with “bible prophecy” what of the enormous Jewish influence of the 6 million American Jews, who drive politics, media and academia and who have shaped the 20th century. How about the Iraq war which was planned by US neo-conservative think-tanks top heavy with Jewish academics, or, the current Iran problem for which Israel desires to push the US to intervene with either regime change or a military solution. What about the unusual evacuation of the “Syrian white helmets” (good guys sic!) by Israel. How about some analysis on the origins of the good “rebels” (sic) in Syria? Who funds them? The geo-politics of the Middle East is being shaped by Israel and the US. How about the left-wing identity politics which traces its origins to Jewish cultural Marxists of the Frankfurt school in 1930’s Germany? Or, perhaps, the role of Jewish billionaire George Sorros in funding left-wing groups who are trying to flood Europe with Islamic immigrants, to deliberately change the face of Christian Europe (and drive European Jews home?).
Should we not take a look at the Yinon plan for a greater Israel?  A plan to expand Israeli territory from the “river of Egypt to the Euphrates” the land promised to Abraham in Genesis 15. A territory which contained ten nations -- the same nations who give their crowns to the “Great Whore” in Revelation 17 – Israel (not the Catholic Church ) is depicted as a whore in the OT. Could we talk about the fact that Israeli Rabbi’s have appointed a Sanhedrin and are preparing temple instruments? Could we talk about the fact that these ideas are now going main-stream in Israel with members of the Knesset promoting the building of a temple on the Temple Mount?
The most frightening thing
The most frightening thing I heard during the talk that was that when Christ returned and started Mosaic sacrifices the world would see him as the “anti-Christ” and attack him (presumably this is Armageddon?).
When Christ returns his presence will be unmistakeable and undeniable -- with clouds --like lightening -- feet on the Mt of Olives -- great earthquake etc. On the other hand the Jews are planning to expand their territory and build a temple. What does Christ say….if it was possible even the very elect would be deceived. Do you need reminding?
“As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes”. (Romans 11:28)
In Revelation 5 the messiah Jesus Christ is depicted as a “lamb” in Revelation 13 the “false messiah” is depicted as a “lamb with two horns” who speaks like a serpent. He speaks like the ancient serpent because he repeats the message that “man can be like God”. This is the depiction of a False Messiah. The Pope is not a false messiah; he is a false apostle who claims his authority from the apostle Peter. He does not claim to be a Jew, or the Jewish Messiah.
Brethren and Sisters, if we claim to be watchmen for Zion then we should wake up! Bad political analysis and “fake news” is not bible prophecy. The past patterns are about to repeat.
