Category Archives: End Times
(Ver 1.0) Today is a vital prophetic Bible study, on an essential current world topic. This Bible subject concerns one of the most important end-time warnings that God wants to reveal to humans. This plan of evil is revealing Satan’s strategy of coordinated deception, and his plans to try to control every human. This will be a highly explosive controversial subject that will certainly offend Satan, but could also potentially offend a lot of readers and even Christians. Therefore, be warned up front, if you do not consider yourself to be a spiritually awake and mature Christian, judge yourself to determine if you should continue reading. It is recommended that you read this lesson series from the beginning. If you have not read this, click on “Part 1” to go there first.
In this series we are talking about a nefarious prophesied planned tactic of human control from an ancient evil serpent. Today’s short Bible lesson, will only focus on the subject of the types of “serpents” that God reveals in the Bible. There will be four different types of “serpents” that will introduced. Two types of serpents will be totally natural, and the other two types of serpents, will be a potential combination of both spiritual and natural. We will hopefully, go over who or what they are, and introduce how they are effective to hurt, harm, or even kill people in this lesson.
Unless you have been living on a deserted island somewhere, you already are aware of something that is happening in the world that is “far” from good. Death has become the dominate topic of conversation. There appears to be a globally coordinated, and planned agenda to cause a one-world new ordered lifestyle, through fear driven words of deception, distortions, distractions, and biases. People today are intentionally being murdered, when they could have been quickly treated correctly, to live.
Please take note that this lesson will be taught using a lot of Biblical, spiritual terminology, representations and symbolism, to keep this message from being muzzled by Satan’s cooperative human IT workers of evil. I believe most mature Christians will understand it, and receive the spiritual message of warning from the LORD.
Let us go and study some of the key verses about who and what types of serpents, that are applicable for today’s plan of global deception.
#1- BIBLE OVERVIEW OF ENEMY SERPENTS
The first directly named mention of a serpent in the bible, occurs in Genesis 3:1, and this creature is defined to be Satan in Revelation 12:9 and 20:2. He is the main focus of this lesson series. But there are also other types of serpents, that are literal or figurative, that may be working with our main character to accomplish his great destructive evil.
There are at least four forms, or types of “serpents” mentioned in the Bible. These types represent natural, spiritual, and figurative patterns of serpents. There are spiritual serpents, and figurative serpents that are working together in the world today. Both of these categorized types of beings have amazing similarities and parallels. But it is important to know that they all represent sin, and evil. Let us quickly go through an introductory overview of these 4 types of evil.
First, there are the natural types of God created serpents, that slither, and slide along the ground. Christians today are not fighting these natural beasts in mass, as the children of Israel did in Numbers 21. However, this natural story of fiery serpents moving through the camp, to kill many people is a shadow of what is happening now in the world. Like Moses did by lifting up a serpent on a pole, to have people look on it to be delivered, is also what is available today. But people today are required to repent and look to Jesus on the cross for their spiritual salvation, and He is the only hope anyone has.
When, and where did these natural reptiles come from? Christians should believe the Bible, because God created the world, and He wrote the Bible, and He answers these questions. In Genesis 1:24, God begins day 6 of creation. At the beginning of day 6, God creates land animals of every kind. This would logically include any natural snake. Many people consider these creatures a physical enemy, which is very logical and wise. But God said He created these beings to help us to understand His greater unseen spiritual realities, in John 3:12.
Natural serpents are mentioned a few times in the Bible. But we will only be focusing upon one occurrence found in the Book of Acts for this lesson series. In Acts 28:4, the apostle Paul is shipwrecked on an island called Melita, where he is placing a pile of sticks on a fire. While feeding the fire, a venomous beast attaches itself to the hand of Paul. Everyone that watched this happen, looked upon Paul in amazement when he shook the beast off, and did not fall down dead. This is an amazing story that reveals more than you know right now. We will be talking more about this event, later in the series. Here are some little facts about poisonous and venomous natural serpents:
- A poisonous serpent or viper has specifically designed venom producing glands.
- Poisonous serpents have hollow long fang sharpened teeth that are used to inject the mouth gland’s poison into their victim.
- There are over 700 types of poisonous serpents in the world today.
- Over 250 serpents have the ability to kill a human with one bite.
- Serpents are globally prevalent. There are only about 6 nations on earth where snakes do not live.
- Many snake venoms contain neurotoxins that attack the nervous system, that is designed to immobilize and, or kill the victim.
- Sea snakes are some of the most venomous in the world.
- Snakes smell with their tongues.
- Venomous snakes usually have elliptical or slotted pupils in their eyes.
- Snakes are considered “cold blooded” animals.
- Most snakes have very keen eyesight and night vision.
Most of us know that natural serpents are real, widespread globally, dangerous, designed to kill or cause harm, and should not be ignored, and treated like they do not exist. Therefore, if we should not ignore natural dangerous serpents, we better not ignore a far more powerful spiritual poisonous serpent named Satan. All of these descriptive qualities of naturally created serpents, have parallels into the other spiritual, and figurative serpent types.
The next type of serpent mentioned in the Bible, is a spiritual being named Lucifer (Isaiah 14:12). This spiritual being is first referenced by God to be a symbolic serpent in Genesis 3:1, but his identity is not clearly revealed until Revelation 12:9. That fact causes these two books (the first, and the last), and these two chapters (3 and 9), to be very intimately connected. It also teaches us that this figurative serpent represents an unseen hidden enemy.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
This symbolic serpent is our central figure of this Bible study, and he is also one of the secondary central themes of the entire Bible. He is identified in this verse, to have two names, and two figurative descriptive symbols. The two symbols are the “old serpent”, and “great dragon”. With these symbols is prefixed qualification of “old” and “great”. The two identifying names are the “Devil” and “Satan”. “Devil” means “false accuser”, and “Satan” also means “adversary accuser”. Both of these names identify Satan to be a masterful slanderer using words. He uses words of deception craftily, like casting a spell upon a victim.
Today there is a battle of words taking place. It is a key part of what is happening in the strategy of the serpent in our world. There is an evil side that is producing words of fear, division, hatred, and redefinition of evil being called good, and good being called evil (Isaiah 5:20), and the God side is attempting to just tell the truth in love (Ephesians 4:5). Christians are going to become deceived, if they do not learn to pay attention to the words they hear.
A lot of Christians believe we should not spend time studying this spiritual enemy, but obviously they have not been a Christian long enough to know how evil, powerful, and tricky this enemy can be:
2 Corinthians 2:11 – so that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes. (NASB)
It should be obvious from reading the Word of God and from our human experiences, that Satan has schemes of evil to work against humans. Paul wrote that we should NOT be ignorant of these strategies, yet too many people are. Any wise military general understands, the more they know about how an enemy can operate against them, the more likely they are to overcome them. Let us just read about one key part of Satan’s ability to control humans:
2 Corinthians 4:4 – In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
Satan has an uncanny ability to produce a shadow of darkness that overwhelms the human mind, causing people the inability to see the truth. God says there are people in the world that do not believe the truth about Jesus to be saved, just because of this ability. But even some Christians can experience this darkness to not see certain Bible truths. We learn from this verse, that this deception is occurring in the unseen human mind, by an unseen spiritual serpent god. Wow!
Therefore, the number one strategic way Satan figuratively poisons people, is by thought filled words of deception. We learn that Eve was deceived by the serpent in Genesis 3:13, by her own admission, she said she was deceived by the serpent. But then we learn in the New Testament that God claims she was only deceived in her thoughts:
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Surely you can see that the modern church is being warned to control our thoughts. We learn from the Word of God, that any thought in our mind, could potentially come from Satan. Therefore, it must be evaluated by comparing it with the word of God in the Bible (2 Corinthians 10:5). This is your only guarantee that this thought is something that needs to be agreed with, spoken, or acted upon.
Then reading in a connecting verse in Revelation 12:9 we discover this same serpent, has deceived the entire world. Therefore, the words of the serpent represent poison, that causes spiritual death. Serpent words in Genesis left the entire world separated from God, spiritually dead. You have just been introduced to two types of poisons, in serpent types 1 and 2. A natural serpent has a natural poison substance in its mouth to kill people physically, and the spiritual serpent has poisonous words of deception in its mouth to spiritually kill people. Let us examine a new type of spirit serpent next.
Ok, now for the next prevalent type of “serpent” that is mentioned in the Bible. This type of serpent is a figurative representation of another spiritual being. Can you guess what type of being this can be? Yes, it could be angels, devils, demons and other unclean spirits, but those fall into the serpent type 2 category. No serpent type 3, could be any human you hear speaking to you. This is why, we better learn this lesson from the Bible and learn from God’s Word. Paul wrote in Romans 3:4 “…let God be true, and every man a liar…”. Let us review some verses that introduce this type of human serpent:
Psalm 140:1 – Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
Psalm 140:2 – Which imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
Psalm 140:3 – They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah.
These verses describe a natural human being, that has an extremely evil heart. This would indicate this human is connected to be like the unseen spiritual serpent also named Satan. Notice in verse 3, God says this human has a sharp tongue like a serpent, and they have adders’ poison under their lips. These are clever symbolic representations of people who deceive, and hurt other humans, with their words, and actions.
Take a quick look at one other reference to how human words can be a deadly poisonous substance:
James 3:7 – For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
James 3:8 – But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
We find in verse 7 of James 3, that God speaks of humans being able to tame every kind of naturally created beast, including natural serpents (serpent type 1). But this natural reality, is being compared to an unruly spiritual evil full of deadly poison, called the human tongue. God is now teaching us how Satan is using the words of deceived humans, to deceive other humans. These types of humans can be just introducing us to false religions, Satanism, socialism, Marxism, communism, or atheism. And it could also be coming from anyone, including politicians. An injection of poisonous words, can be coming from any source, including your neighbor, a boss, the television, and the internet.
Currently in the world, there are literally billions of deceived people that have been buying into the untruths of Satan. These deceiving words are being spoken through people (like the false prophets), who have no real concept that they are being used by an evil spirit (Ephesians 2:2). It is amazing how a deceived person, can believe they are the one that is speaking the truth, and believe that those that are actually speaking truth are speaking the untruths (2 Corinthians 4:4). But God said this would happen, and warned us of it in Isaiah 5:20. In this verse God says “Woe to them that call evil, good and good, evil. Please let me give you another set of key verses that are very relevant to our subject of serpent witchcraft.
Act 13:6 – And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:
Act 13:7 – Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.
Act 13:8 – But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.
Found here in the Bible, is an amazing parallel to what is happening in our modern times. Satan always repeats the same strategies and plans, just to new people. Ecclesiastes 1:10 says, “Is there anything we can say, this is new? No, it has been already in old time, before us”. This is a wise principle to know and apply. This makes Bible study exponentially more important in these times that we are living. The more we learn about what Satan was doing in the past, the more we can be prepared to know what could be happening now. In this passage we are about to be introduced to the ancient concept of witchcraft and magic, to see how it was used then, and how it can be repeated now and in the future.
Here in Acts 13, We can read, where Paul and Barnabas were going through the land preaching the Gospel of Jesus, when they came across a government ruler named Sergius Paulus. This man desired to hear the words of light and truth spoken from Paul. But there was opposition from a human, that was a false prophet, magician, and sorcerer named Barjesus. This evil man tried extensively to silence the truth. This man was attempting to sway the ruler away from hearing God’s words of truth to bring light, in order to keep him in Satan’s dominion of darkness (Acts 26:18). This is exactly what is happening today, but on a much larger scale. Here is what Paul said about this evil man:
Act 13:9 – Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,
Act 13:10 – And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?
This is an accurate description of people that are doing the same in our world today. Notice the Greek word G1388 translated as “subtilty”, leads God’s descriptive terms. This word means, “a decoy”, “a trick bait”, or “a wile”. Wile is defined as a strategy to deceive in order to trap and ensnare a person into believing a lie. It is like placing a tasty piece of cheese on a trap, to get the mouse, to take the bait and die.
This is happening every day from the mouths of the modern false prophets, that we learned about in lesson 1. We can learn from this, that whatever a false prophet is claiming is the truth, is actually the opposite of the truth. In fact, whatever a false prophet accuses their enemy of doing, is what they are doing. The accusation is given just to distract the attention away from them.
The next Greek description is G4468, and it was translated as “mischief”. This Greek word is defined by Strong as “recklessness”. Recklessness can be defined as someone who gives little or no thought to the risk of danger. This would apply to any danger to themselves, as well as any danger to others. These types of people care very little about their safety, or about who else gets hurt. This could describe a terrorist suicide bomber. This is clearly a type of person that is deceived, and on their way to hell, and does not care how many others they take with them.
Now we get to the most important description of this type of individual. This man in Acts is called a “child of the devil”. Did you hear that? What is a child? One answer to what is a child, is a “seed” (Genesis 4:25). Who is the devil? We should all know, the answer to who is the devil, is he is the serpent (Revelation 12:9). Paul was calling him, “a seed of the serpent”. Where do we hear about this in the Bible for the first time? Perhaps you know it is Genesis 3:15. In this verse God is speaking directly to the “serpent”, as he says there will be enmity (hatred) between you and the woman, and between her seed and your seed. Wow, this is very important to understand.
Finally, notice the word description. to “pervert” the right way. This Greek word is G1294 and it means to “distort”. This could be exchanged with the synonym, to “twist” the true way to righteousness. God is saying there are people in the world that are intentionally, trying to turn you away from seeing the truth, to send you to hell with their lies and tricks. This is the antichrist spirit that has been working since Paul was preaching (2 John 1:7).
This type of serpent, being described is full of deceit, guile, subtilty, treachery, and great evil intentions. This type of serpent is a type of their serpent father’s pattern (Satan). This type of “serpent” uses words to deceive, and turn people in a direction they should not be in agreement with. Think of this type of person to be like a warlock or wizard magician that is casting a spell upon someone, they want to do harm to. This type of serpent is working with their father to bring magic, and witchcraft to the people of the world.
This type of serpent’s number one ways of deception; is to first distract from, or plainly silence the truth. This was like Barjesus, did to Paul. Then they will bring people hopeful words of hidden subtle poison. And they do this by hiding and disguising the lies with tasty labels that promote human flesh desires for relief from created threats of death, poverty, sickness, and etc. But whatever they are saying or doing, is actually leading people deeper into the problems that they claim they are being saved from.
Next, let us go through the fourth type of serpent, which is another figurative type to conclude this lesson.
Ok, there is a fourth type of figurative serpent, that is representative in the Bible. Serpent 4, characterizes any natural deadly type of poisonous substance. Like Satan and his seed sorcerers can use poisonous words to cause spiritual death, they also can use literal poison to intentionally cause physical death to humans. Satan is first interested in your spiritual death, but physical death becomes a greater priority after anyone becomes a Christian. But remember, Satan always wants to deceive you first.
Once a person is deceived, they can be used by Satan easily, to deceive or physically kill other people. Take for example, the late Jim Jones in 1978, who was a deceived cult preacher that killed a lot of his followers by giving them a deadly poison to drink. Here we had two types of poisons (one spiritual, and one natural) working together to kill a lot of people. This makes this type of spiritual and natural death, one of Satan’s greatest planned strategies, and we will be talking more about this in other lessons, because this is a repeated pattern of poisoning people by the evil one, and it is happening again today on a global scale.
Let us review a few examples of this type of physical poison in the Bible. In Exodus 15, God wrote of Moses and the children of Israel in the wilderness being very thirsty. They come upon a place named Marah, that had only bitter water. After Moses cast a tree branch into the water, it became sweet, and good to drink. It is implied, that drinking the bitter water would have been deadly. Fortunately for the children of Israel, Moses was a prophet of God that helped them, and not a Jim Jones that was trying to kill them.
In Mark 16:18, God informs us that if Christians drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them. In another place, in Revelation 8:10, we can read about a satanic star named Wormwood, that falls from heaven to the earth. This event of evil, poisons 1/3 of the drinkable waters in the world. This passage claims “many” people will die from this coming poisoning. This is just another example of the Jim Jones type of event, on a much larger scale. There are also other types of potential venomous substances, and poisoning methods, that can be given to people through massive deceptive tricks. We will address this subject more later in the series.
We have been discovering the Biblical subject of “serpents” and how they threaten the freedoms of human life with poisons of witchcraft. We have found that there were at least 4 types of serpents, that were introduced to us today in this lesson.
There was one type of naturally created serpent that depicts a warning pattern for the other types of figurative and symbolic serpents being given by God in His Holy Word. These naturally created serpents (type 1), are very subtle beings. They can appear not to be there and then suddenly strike without warning. Their poison can literally kill a human in a matter of minutes.
But there is also another type of natural serpent that was not mentioned. This type of natural serpent is very large and powerful. This serpent wraps around its victims, and then slowly squeezes until they are unable to breathe, and the victim dies from suffocation. People today have been dying this way in hospitals. Do you believe this is also related to the modern strategy of Satan? We will be talking more about this in the future, the Lord be willing.
The next more prevalent serpent type number 2 was Satan. This was God’s chosen description of Lucifer who deceived Eve with his tricky words in Genesis 3. Because of Adam’s willful rebellion, spiritual and physical death, both entered into the world. This resulted in the first mention of fear (Genesis 3:10). This enemy deception, caused man to become fearful of their creator God, and He was their only hope. This act of the subtle serpent, made the devil believe that he was in control, but it was through this God created concept of “death”, that literally caused Satan’s defeat (Hebrews 2:14).
The third type of serpent was humans that were called a child of the type 2 serpent, named Satan. According to the law of Genesis 1:12, every seed is produced from the source of its own kind. Therefore, these types of people are almost exact patterns of their father the devil. These humans have been deceived by Satan’s words, and are now controlled to be used to deceive other humans from joining God’s Kingdom. Most of these people do not have a clue that they are deceived, and they are being used for evil, or that Satan even exists. But there are a few top leaders that have worship practices to exalt Lucifer to the position that he desires in his evil heart. Too many deceived people today have fallen into a trap of greed for money and power. But their end is not a good one, and hell will be a place of greater torment for these.
The fourth type of serpent is figurative for a natural poison. It has the similar characteristics of the other three types of serpents, in a more deceptive packaged presentation. This type of poison can be demon inspired, and human developed, distributed, and attractively presented as something good, and beneficial for life. It can be even praised, and worshipped by many. To those that are deceived by the false prophet narratives, it can be easily given out for free, and eagerly and willingly desired to be taken. But to others that can see what is happening, it can be forced upon them with threats of losing some essential modern necessity of survival.
We are nearing the time of the end of the world. The previous days of compromised middle ground harmony between those good and evil, has been removed. Fence sitting Christianity has been torn down, and which side of the world you wish to stand in, has been set before us as a plain choice. God is bringing out prophets today, that are standing with Him, and saying:
1 Kings 18:21 – … How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him…
There has been a clear line drawn by God. Your choice to whose side, you are whole heartedly standing with, can, and will determine your eternal destiny in God’s kingdom, or the serpent’s kingdom in hell. But I do not want to end this lesson without giving people hope. Because God loves us so much, He has given us hope, that the serpent will not prevail in this plan against God’s church to overcome us.
According to the Word of God, we (the church) can overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus), and the word of our testimony (Revelation 12:11). We can also read when Jesus gave all Christians believers, His authority over all of the serpent types found in the Bible (Luke 10:19). We have been blessed by the LORD with an indwelling greater Spirit than he that is working in the world (1 John 4:4). But authority given over a serpent is useless, unless it is utilized and applied. Don’t allow the fear produced by a serpent plan, to cause motionlessness.
Thank you for spending the time to read and study the Word of God with us at agapegeek.com. We love you all, and pray God’s best for you. If you need prayer, please just leave us a message. It would be our privilege to pray for you. We also love whenever you pray for us. The serpent is an equal opportunity destroyer. He would love to kill us all, but our God has given us His blood to redeem us from Satan’s authority. Thank you, Jesus!
(Ver 1.0) This is Part 1 in a series of lessons on the book of Revelation that reveals parallels with world current events. This lesson is a vital prophetic Bible study, on an essential current world topic. This Bible subject concerns one of the most important end-time warnings that God wants to reveal to humans. This plan of evil is revealing Satan’s strategy of coordinated deception, and his plans to try to control every human. Satan is attempting to tell us all lies as often, and from as many sources as possible, to get everyone to believe them. This has been so very successful to deceive too many people. This will be a highly explosive controversial series, that will certainly offend Satan, but could also potentially offend a lot of readers and even Christians. Therefore, be warned up front, if you do not consider yourself to be a spiritually awake and mature Christian, judge yourself to determine if you should continue reading.
I believe the LORD wanted us to go in a new direction for this lesson series, to help as many people as possible. There are major eternal consequences for being deceived in these last days. Believing the wrong message, could shorten our lives on the earth, or even send us to hell. We will be talking about a nefarious prophesied planned tactic of human control from a serpent. If you have ever read the book of Revelation, you could be like a lot of people and wonder, what does all this mean, and how, and when can it possibly come to pass? The things that were prophesied, have never been possible to take place, in the way that they are stated in the Bible, until NOW. Because of the rapid advancement of technology, we can see so much happening all around us that matches what the prophets of 2000+ years ago wrote about.
God literally told the prophet Daniel, to seal up his book until the time of the end. God said this in Daniel 12:4, where it is written: “Many will run to and fro, and knowledge will increase”. How can words that were written thousands of years ago, and have not changed in the least little bit, suddenly have profound new meanings that no one has ever seen before? This is a very perplexing riddle, unless you understand the writer of the Bible knew the future, and He described things in the terms that only those living in the end-of-time could understand. This is why so much new revelation is coming forth about our times of the end.
For example, without the modern inventions of bullet trains, cars, and jet airplanes, the ability to move around the globe rapidly by people mentioned in Daniel 12:4, was not possible. In the same way, if not for the modern inventions of large-scale computers, servers, networks, laptops, tablets, smart phones, the internet, satellites, and fiber optics, the knowledge of the world increasing, and being passed around rapidly, would be extremely limited. Living in the information age causes us to better understand what was hidden in Daniel 12:4. This is one of the key principles for understanding any end-time prophecy.
Christians should have a great advantage of knowing more about the times, and seasons that we are living in, then the unsaved world. According to 1 Thessalonians 5:4, Christian should not be living in darkness so that the end of days should surprise us. Because we can read and study the Bible prophecies, we can use the foretold information about future events, come alive to us as we watch them occurring.
Currently there is a coordinated satanic plan of evil to overtake the world, that is being perpetrated globally, upon everyone simultaneously! Please take note that this lesson series will be taught using a lot of Biblical, spiritual terminology, representations and symbolism, to keep this message from being muzzled by Satan’s cooperative human IT workers of evil. I believe most mature Christians will understand it, and receive the spiritual message of warning from the LORD.
This website has had people try to shift our work for God by telling us, we should not be concerned with teaching what the Bible says about politics, money, medicine, or anything else that is potentially offensive to some. However, since God speaks about all of these subjects and more in His Word, we will continue to be like Peter and John in Acts 4:19; “Whether it be better to obey God or you, you judge”. As for our website, we will do our best to always obey God.
Let us move into today’s lesson, of the introduction to divine warnings to not be deceived.
#1 – END-TIME DECEPTION WARNING
Christians must become enlightened to the times, that we are living. We also must discern to see the plans of evil, and stand against them, in prayer utilizing the authority given to us by the LORD Jesus (Luke 10:19). Or we will fall into the tricks of our spiritual enemy, to become deceived. We must pray, and seek divine wisdom, revelation, discernment, help and guidance, to counter this severe evil attempt to deceive us. Jesus personally, listed first in His description of end time events, one great warning. In Matthew 24:4, Jesus said the following:
Matthew 24:4 – And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Why would Jesus make this His priority end-time warning, for His people? It would appear to say to us, that this will be Satan’s primary goal, and the basis of his strategy, to defeat us. How are people deceived? Most deception comes from subtle words. We can learn from reading in Romans 3 and James 3, how words can be poisonous to bring people harm and deceit.
We can go back and read about the first deceit in Genesis 3. This is where the ancient serpent tricked Eve with his subtle, and crafty poisonous words (1 Timothy 2:14). Genesis 3 was the first recording of human deception taking place. But reading Revelation 12:9, God declares the entire world will be deceived by this “serpent”, who has grown into the “Great Red Dragon”.
Revelation 12:9 – And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Here we have a very key definition given, to the true identity of the “serpent” of Genesis 3. This serpent is clearly defined to be the devil, also called Satan. This definition also clearly teaches us that the “serpent” was a symbolic name, since the “great dragon” is also a symbolic reference. This spirit being is said to be the source of the deception of all humans. Therefore, we know where the supply of deception seeds come from. But we must also understand that Satan uses two methods working together to deceive people. The first method of deception occurs in the human mind, as we read described in 2 Corinthians:
2 Corinthians 11:3 – But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
This is an essential God commentary on Genesis 3 about how Satan operated in the Garden of Eden. The Greek word translated as “beguiled” means “to seduce wholly”. In other words, to deceive completely. But it is the location, and method of this deceit that is important to understand. Paul wrote to the church about his concern, that how Satan tricked Eve in her mind, so he was operating in their minds with the exact same methods. Therefore, we understand that thoughts of temptation, and deception come from Satan. Be aware of this. If a thought does not align with the Word of God, cast it out of your mind (2 Corinthians 10:5), with a statement of “It is written” like Jesus did (Matthew 4:10). Now let us look at method 2 of Satanic deception:
Revelation 2:14 – But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
The second primary method of deception used by Satan, is to use easily deceived people, to deceive other people. We can read about this again in Revelation 2:14. This is another example of a “false prophet”, that was used to deceive the nation of Israel by Satan. In this example, Jesus is rebuking the church for falling into this trap of acting like a Balaam, who was a false prophet. This church doctrine was to introduce stumbling blocks, which represent temptations to be led away from serving God. This teaches us clearly, that even pastors in churches can become a “false prophet” to lead people away from God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Uh oh? We will be talking more about the subject of today’s false prophets as we continue. But let us review the concept of how this strategy works first.
How the Gospel was, and still is spread from one saved person sowing Good Seeds to save another unsaved person, is the exact same method of sowing evil seeds being used by Satan to deceive people. Jesus taught us this concept in the Parable of the wheat and tares (Matthew 13:24-30). Satan will deceive one person in their mind, and used this deceived person to spread the same message of lies to another. The growth potential of this tactic is exponential. This is the Satanic strategy happening today in the world. Satan has cleverly learned that by potentially silencing all other seeds of truth, his evils seeds become more believable. But this strategy will never stand up against the knowledge of God’s truth. Knowing God’s Truth will keep Satan from destroying you (Hosea 4:6). Let us get back into the foundational warning verse of this lesson.
In Matthew 24:4, Jesus starts with the word G991, that is translated as “take heed”. But that is not a sufficient meaning. This Greek word literally means, to open our eyes, to focus upon, and to become aware of something. This something being spoken of, is called “deception”. Remember in Genesis 3:7, God wrote the eyes of Adam and Eve were opened after the woman was deceived, and Adam intentionally rebelled. This statement would appear to teach us, Adam and Eve had their eyes shut, implying they never expected deception of an enemy to come into their garden. This would appear to teach us a pattern, that the Church should learn from.
- We must learn from the first human failure, to keep our eyes open.
- We must learn to expect deception to try to come and kill us.
- Then we must learn, that only agreeing with God’s Word of truth will keep us from falling for the poisonous lies from our enemy.
Some synonyms for “deception” are; a ruse, trickery, a con, dishonesty, fraudulence, and a scam. Other words that can be applied are being “two-faced”, “underhanded”, “false”, “fake”, and many others. Satanic deceptions are lies, that are mixed with selected bits of truths, and usually presented to be enticing. Deception is now happening, all around us. This deception is called a type of spiritual poisoning, because deception has crept into every realm of our society, and human influence, including the body of Christ in the church.
In the past, we thought we could trust our preachers. In the past, we thought we could trust our doctors. In the past, we thought we could trust our government leaders. In the past, we thought we could trust our high court judges. In the past, we thought we could trust our school teachers. In the past, we thought we could trust our news media. In the past, we thought we could trust our employers. In the past, we thought we could trust our family, and friends. In the past, we thought we could never lose our freedoms. But the majority of these people and qualities of normalcy, have been overrun (Ephesians 2:2) with a massive coordinated plan, and strategy of Satanic deception (Matthew 24:4), and redefinition of what is right, and good (Isaiah 5:20). But we need to learn to first trust God, learn His Words of Truth, and make them our FIRST priority. Begin everyday by asking God, “Show me what, I need to know to not be deceived today”.
There has been, and potentially will continue a strategy of Satan to bring a mass coordinated brain washing set of talking points to every human. This was intentionally designed and implemented to cause a spirit of fear (2 Timothy 1:7). This spirit of fear, has been ultimately designed, to produce the human desire, to give up our rights of freedom, and to willingly participate in the demonic take-over and control of our world. How many people do you know today, that are living in fear? I have heard this from too many people, it consumes them and it is because of a “fear of death”. Take a look at these verses:
Hebrews 2:14 – Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Hebrews 2:15 – And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
Jesus Christ came into the world to destroy the power of death from Satan. He did this by participating in death and rising from the grave to conquer it. Yes, Satan is still trying to “kill” everyone with his “poison”, but that will only effect those that do not know the truth. Notice what fear does in verse 15. Fear places people into a state of willing lock-downed isolation of obedience, passivity, compliance and servitude. This lowers people made in the image and likeness of God, into a masked, faceless existence, with the removal of all basic human rights to freedom.
This satanic masterful strategy of mass exaggerations and lies, has caused so many people to just do anything that they are told, without any regard to consequences of their choices. This is the practice of human conditioning, assimilation, and acclimatization. Humans are being trained, and programmed, to blindly follow instructions like cloned identical robots, and to just automatically follow the ever-changing voice commands of alleged good sounding leaders. These people create a crisis. that fuels the flames of fear-based deception, to cause people to want to obey.
Did you know that this is what the Bible says, will happen in the future when the antichrist takes control of our world? God wrote about these future events almost 2000 years ago, and we can just now begin to understand how they can happen. We will get into these detailed strategies as we go forward in the Bible study series, if the Lord be willing.
We already read in the opening statements, about Jesus warning His people to not be deceived by any human, and that includes this website. Don’t believe anything we say. We are not God, and we didn’t write the Bible. Please, do your own work, to study and show yourself approvable to God (2 Timothy 2:15). Here is another warning verse, spoken from the lips of Jesus:
Matthew 24:11 – And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Jesus repeats His warning from verse 4, in Matthew 24:11 with the same emphasis, but being more specific with human beings that are deceived by “false prophets”. What exactly is a “false prophet”? Since God in the flesh specifically warns about this, we need to understand it.
God defines “false prophets” differently, then you might think. Many people, that have heard of “prophets”, believe they are someone that just speaks about something, that will come to pass in the future. Then if something said was not fulfilled in a time confirming their thoughts, they call them a false prophet. But that is not an accurate description. There are many examples from God in the Bible, where one of His prophets said something that did not come to pass. This was because people prayed, repented, and changed, and God said this made a difference.
God in 2 Peter 2:1, defines a false prophet and a false teacher, to be someone that denies the LORD Jesus. This definition is interesting because we can find instances like this in the Bible. For example, in Revelation 16:13, God prophesies that there will be a coming false prophet that will be empowered by Satan, and he will certainly deny the LORD Jesus. If you go study this topic you will find that this false prophet is taking people away from knowing God, and pointing them to serve the beast. That is how a false prophet works. But there are other examples of false prophets in the Bible.
If we read in 1 Kings 18:19, we learn a little bit about these types of evil false prophets. There was a very evil ruling queen named Jezebel, and she reigned over the people using fear. She made it her goal to kill off God’s real prophets to silence their words from being heard by the people of the nation. That sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Who is being silenced on the internet, news media, etc.? Then she replaced the real truth from God, with her message. She had at least 400 men, that ate at her table, and she called them her “prophets”. This teaches us a lot, about the subject of “false prophets”.
Here is what we learn in the Bible, about these types and patterns of people. These “false prophets” were sponsored, paid for, and bought by an evil government and ruler. Therefore, the poisonous message, that came from their mouth, agreed with the evil agenda of the Satan controlled ruler in the government. People of Israel, thought that they could trust prophets because of their past experiences with God. So, when the false prophets come with deception to bring them into serving the false god Baal, they are easily swayed away from their true God. Jezebel did a good job at silencing the God message, by silencing most of God’s servants. But God still had an Elijah that He was about to use, to turn the nation back to Him. All of these tactics of fear and silencing are being repeated today, just in new and different high-tech ways.
Deu 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
The nation of Israel was warned by God not to be deceived to be turned, and driven to serve false gods to worship them. This is exactly what the “false prophets” of Jezebel did and they fell for the trap and trick of the enemy. God says to the church in 1 Corinthians 10:11, these mistakes committed by Israel, were written for our benefit to learn not to repeat, the same mistakes. Yet too many Christians have fallen into the trap of listening to today’s false prophets.
Who are today’s false prophets? We can still see today how people wholeheartedly believe what the false prophets in today’s world say to them. This causes people to be easily deceived. Who in today’s world, agrees with a one-sided extreme government position, and does not allow any other position or opinion to be told? Who in the world today are silencing every opposing opinion? Who in the government today claims God is not welcome in their House of Representatives, or their Senate? Who in the world are agreeable to the murders of innocent unborn children in their governor’s mansions and ruler houses? If you do not know the correct answer, you are probably deceived by them already.
These modern-day false prophets that are agreeable in mass with the Satanic agenda, and who are promoting his false narrative for the overthrow of civility, are called reporters, journalists, anchors, correspondents, news-casters, and editors, but I can think of some other words that are not so flattering. This is why I do not watch, or listen to the false prophet agenda, anymore. Please do not misunderstand. Not everyone in this industry is the devil. Many are good and legitimate, fair, truthful, and news minded types of people. But most of these are only found on limited platforms and have been completely removed from major social media.
In this lesson, we learned a lot of good information about the ancient serpent’s modern tactics of deception. These strategies of the devil are being implemented, and utilized using massive coordination, across many platforms of industry and governments. This should be one of the major things to pray against. Decree and declare for a spirit of confusion, to manifest in all of the enemies plans to take control of the world. Take authority over the devil’s plan to control the people of the world with his deceptive lies, and forbid it, in the name of Jesus. Bind the spirit of fear, and do not allow this evil spirit to enter your home, or your mind. True Christ followers, have full authority over the devil according to Luke 10:19.
This lesson series will be labeled as “d-i-s-i-n-f-o-r-m-a-t-i-o-n” by many of the false prophets, and their Jezebel rulers, and handlers. It will be labeled as “conspiracy theory” by many others. But please remember, Noah was a conspiracy theory preacher for 100 years, until it started to rain. Therefore, beware, and don’t believe anything that is written or spoken here, or anywhere else, unless you can verify it for yourself, in your own Bible study. Then hold fast to whatever you find to be the truth in His Word. Stand with God and His Word alone. Finally, please STOP LISTENING TO THE FALSE PROPHET agenda! This should be one of your priorities after reading your Bible. But do not cease to pray.
In the next lesson, the Lord be willing, we will be getting to how Satan is attempting to prepare us for more of his deception. There is a growing real hidden agenda of massive evil, that is not being told to us, by the mass of the fake and false prophets of Jezebel. But stand strong and look for the spirit of Elijah to arise again. There is about to come an Elijah moment of fire, and many will be surprised when they are consumed. This series will be going through key verses in the book of Revelation that show us what is happening in the world today to prepare us take the “mark” of the beast, that could be coming sooner than you think.
Thank you for taking the time to read this short lesson. There is an extensive effort being made to shorten the lessons on this website, for those who have time constraints in this crazy time. But please take note that one way that deception succeeds, is when no one has the time to read and study the Word of God. Thank you again for your prayers and encouragement. Hopefully, you will understand our heart of love to teach the Word of God to every nation. God Bless you and your family. We love you very much, and JESUS IS LORD, and is coming soon!
