Deception in America

With the fall of Todd Bentley and the end of the Lakeland Outpouring, many railed against the deception in the Church.  And rightly so.  Believers put aside their common sense and biblical foundation to accept anything as long as “it feels good.”

However, yesterday, a bigger deception emerged.  Americans elected a man who may have been born in Kenya, raised as a Muslim, espouses Marxists values and finds comfort and friendship from black liberation theologists and domestic terrorists.

Seven years ago, our country was attacked by Osama bin Laden and his Al Qaeda terrorist group.  Americans rallied together and waved flags and sang “God Bless America.”  Yesterday, they elected Barack Obama as their president.

Those of us who have studied bible prophecy knew that in the end times deception would be worse.  How else would people support the Antichrist knowing that he is the embodiment of evil?  Prophecy is being fulfilled before our eyes.

2 not to be quickly shaken in mind or alarmed, either by a spirit or a spoken word, or a letter seeming to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,

2 Thessalonians 2:2-3 (ESV)

The word translated “rebellion” above is apostasy or falling away. 

4:1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, 2 through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared,

1 Timothy 4:1-2 (ESV)

What happened yesterday in America is the biggest deception so far.  It makes Lakeland appear silly in comparison.  Lakeland only affected a subsection of charismatics, the election of Obama represents the beginning of the end.

  1. Amen…excellent post. As I stated in another forum after hearing of the win by Obama, the following:

    America has chosen the destiny she is going to follow for at least the next four years. America has made a choice. Yet I was not even happy with McCain or Palin. They were a disappointment and would have not been, nor would ever be, my first choice as President and VP. But that was the only plausible realistic choice I had. It was painfully obvious by the many posts I have posted on this forum that I firmly believed and still do that it was a foolish choice to choose Obama. Such choice will have serious ramifications, not only for America but for the world as well. Yet I remarkably find that I am at peace. It is a part of God’s plan. It was destined to be. I know we are in for some very exciting and dangerous times and such may not come immediately upon Obama’s taking power in January 2009. It may slowly come over the next several years, maybe not even until the second term of his administration if there is one, or it may gallop upon us suddenly…that I do not know. But it will come. However, the Lord is in control and we will persevere for we have one who will never forsake us or leave us. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and He is and remains at the right hand of God. His Name is Jesus of Nazareth and He is True and Faithful. He will keep His Word and that, which was planned even before the foundations of the earth were created, will unfold precisely as He planned it for He is Sovereign over all.
