Is the Delusion Already Upon Us?…
Posted on June 12, 2019by billrandles
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. ( 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)
I am beginning to think that the long dreaded, God- sent delusion has already descended upon our generation.
We are being judged by God, judicial blindness has come upon our generation, night has fallen and we have been deceived.
Why do I think so?
Just one example; “Transgender Story Hour”, is now widely considered a wholesome, family friendly event. The very idea that parents would allow transvestites, and other forms of sexual deviants to come into the children’s portion of the all American small town library to read story books to little children is insane.
A mere ten years ago the idea would have been scoffed at, as unworkable, even dangerous, and despicable, there is no way anyone in charge of a public library would ever allow it.
I don’t think this sea change in attitude can be explained without considering that something supernatural has happened to us.
A very short time ago, it was considered common knowledge here in (common sense) America, that transvestites and or transgenders were mentally unstable, and obviously unsuitable as any kind of influence on young children. Those suffering from “gender dysphoria” were to be pitied, helped, and not persecuted but certainly not held up as role models for children!
It was very recently widely known that those who are confused about their sexuality suffer drastically higher suicide rates than the rest of the population. Even Johns Hopkins University, one of the early pioneers of Transgender studies and of Sexual re-assignment surgery now insists that Transgenderism itself is a mental illness, https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/michael-w-chapman/johns-hopkins-psychiatrist-transgender-mental-disorder-sex-change and dangerous to those encouraged in it.
Even those who didn’t believe the Bible or were not religious knew that one doesn’t expose little children to sexual deviants.
As I typed I realized how many will smirk at the old fashioned term “sexual deviants”, because they have been conditioned to smirk and mock any such notion, in the same fashion as my generation had a real hoot when watching “Reefer Madness”, which was a film made in the 1930’s to warn people about the dangers of Marijauna use.
The younger generations are being increasingly conditioned, and do not even realize it. They have a pavlovian reaction to any talk in terms of the old absolutes. To them the past was so hateful, narrow, bigoted, etc. compared to now. We now are so much better in the modern day!
They can not perceive that in the not too distant past, children were protected for the most part , from being turned into political tools, and from exposure to sexual and even pornographic propaganda, children were allowed a childhood, they weren’t bombarded with ugly doubts about sexuality, environmental catastrophe, and the evils of capitalism.
These modern generations have little or no idea that they are being seduced and pimped by the left , all in the name of the glorious and godless “new day” dawning. Most of them cannot know the simple joys we all once took for granted as children.
Little children were not deliberately confused and addled, being forced to wonder what their own sexuality is, nor would they have been willingly exposed to such freak shows as we see in schools, libraries and some apostate churches across the nation, Bearded and coiffed men, wearing over the top Mae West style dresses, flamboyantly flaunting their perversion as they literally groom three and four year olds in from of their parents!
I do believe that one of the causes of the alarming rate of suicide among young people is because of the deliberate sexual confusion being propagated by our godless elite on the most vulnerable among us.
When the Most High determines that a people just will not repent, in the face of so much blessing, warning, knowledge and grace… He often judges us by simply turning us over to our own depravity.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Romans 1:28)
How else to explain Midwestern people, accepting as “wholesome” Transvestites and other deviants being given access to our children, dressed in gaudy drag, in honor of the month now set aside nationally as a time for flaunting “Homosexual Pride”. Rebrobate is the right word for it.
Jesus is coming soon, and so is a terrible Judgment from God upon this earth.
The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him. As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. The Lord standeth up to plead, and standeth to judge the people. ( Isaiah 3:9-13)

Yes, I do believe dilusion is, and has been, at work and will continue. It will have its full effect post-rapture but certainly appears to be ramping up now. It's the only thing that can explain the ever increasing madness as evidenced by the whacky democrat party, which is wholy in bed with the devil on issues ranging from infanticide to LGBTQLMNOP to (fill in the blank)....essentially every and any Godless concept and/or behavior you can think of.

I believe it has begun, but is nowhere near the extent it will be moments after the rapture. Once the Holy Spirit and we believers are removed from this earth, it will bloom in fullness. It will have nothing to hold it back. What a horrible, unfathomable world this will be then. :cry

There could be some form of delusion now, but the delusion mentioned in the below is very clear its after the Holy Spirit has departed and the AC has been revealed, which means the church has already been raptured, so it cant be happening now.

2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

1 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you,

2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of Christ had come.

3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?

6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.

7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.

8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,

12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

But I think we do see Satan's hardcore--the ones who never repent during the tribulation, the ones Revelation describes as "those who dwell on the earth"--practicing for that delusion, which they will receive of their own free will. It does not come out of the blue. God does not impose it on them. They will choose to be deluded.

I agree that "the delusion" has not yet set in, however, it's clear that delusional thinking has taken a firm hold and a precursor to what is to come post-Rapture.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Matthew 24:11‭-‬12 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.24.11-12.KJV

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Behold, I have told you before.
Matthew 24:24‭-‬25 KJV
https://bible.com/bible/1/mat.24.24-25.KJV

I agree that the grand delusion is post rapture with the removal of the Restrainer... however, I also think we are seeing a predecessor delusion. There are just too many absurd things going on. Above were mentioned the abdominal sexual practices being broadcast as normal and uplifting. Add to that building a wall, but a government agency threatening to chain the door open, CA being in debt, but offering free health care to non citizens, allowing felons to vote from prison, elected leaders promising communism at all costs (CO), and I could go on and on.

These actions are abominations, foolish, unfair, unproductive, immoral, unethical, and plain stupid to all of us... but seem right to an ever growing portion of our population. We are dwindling in influence, they are gaining. We are not standing up to resist. No one in authority appears to stand with our President, he is hammered every day. I know of no man that can take that stress forever. "The world" is against him. (I do not worship him ... but only see him apparently trying more than any other politician to have the USA revert to our founding values...) My fear as a citizen is that in 2 years I may wake to a demon rat house, senate and president... But my hope is in my citizenship in Heaven, with the King of King, the Lord of Lords... Who's Word never changes, Who's values are perfect, and Who will rule with an iron rod for 1000 years. We will see fairness and justice reign, but perhaps not until Lord Jesus comes....

The words 'delusion' and 'lie' or THE 'lie' seem, to me, to indicate two separate but related elements. The delusion, whatever it is, is not the lie, it just causes people to believe the lie.

Consider this...if the delusion is the belief in evolution, then that belief would cause people to believe the lie, which would be that man is not created, thus no creator/God. That's just one example, I'm sure there are more.

Chuck Missler and others often made the point that the lie seemed to be a lie bigger than the daily ones we see. Not so much a lie as THE LIE. Of course, the ultimate lie would be that God is not God. Something to ponder.

I Believe what we are seeing can be more accurately described as "Conditioning". Christ less life is always a downward spiral and rebellion is a global cancer that enflames the most debasing instincts in man. The evolution of sin from the garden to the end, is Hell on earth. This is the enemy's greatest hour and this is our time to shine. Remember satan is insane, so as time goes by and his followers become more public, they will begin to mirror their god. We may not know all that's going on, but by the Holy Spirit, we sure know evil when we see it.

The Aliens took them! They were holding back our progression!!... I'm not going to post the link here but I have stumbled upon a Youtube video of a social media star who's topic was about how "White Evangelical Christians" are the source of all the problems in the U.S. and they are worried about the "Rapture Conspiracy" linking it to Donald Trump and his evangelical support.

Well, he was created by God and seeks to replace Him that by itself is insane. Cause an insurrection in heaven, again, insane wouldn't you say? Attempting to destroy Christ, and the Jews, and on and on. He's a nut, imo.
I agree. And consider that Satan, a created being and knowing the Bible far better than any of us, still thinks he can defeat God. Maybe that just extreme arrogance, but insanity works for me.

Not to be flippant, but genuinely interested.
How do you figure Satan is insane?
I agree. Satan appears crafty and delusional and definitely full of pride, but insane, I dont think so. He and his minions have been deceiving many since Adam and Eve, and he is victorious much of the time. I dont think you can find any scripture that would support satan as being insane.

I agree.
Also,
those verses are powerful .
