The scripture text is found in 2nd Thess. 2:11 And for this cause GOD shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie. For what cause shall GOD send a strong delusion unto men? Verse 12 states: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

We see here there are two reasons GOD shall send this strong delusion, this lie, this feigning, this doctrine. First, men loved not the truth. Secondly, they loved pleasure, this life, this world, and the flesh. Now, the truths are the gospels, the sayings of JESUS. They loved not the sayings of JESUS. They sought other ways. In examining the foundations and the beginnings of the faiths and religions of the world, you will come face to face with the separation of the error from the truth. Some believed not in hell. Some believed not in sin. Some believed not in perfectness. Some believed not in morality. Some believed not in the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST. Some believed JESUS but a prophet. Some believed JESUS but a teacher. Some believed JESUS a deceiver. Some believed GOD loves everybody. Some believed there are many paths to GOD. Some believed every man has a right to decide what and who God is. Some believed men never die, that there is no death. Some believed anything within reason. Some believed everything they decided and made up in their own laws and rules. Some believed nothing, that there is no GOD. But everybody has a god, if only his own self as his god, or his own will as his god, or his own unbelief as his god. Everybody has a god.

In 2nd Thess., Chapter 2, we read in verses 1-4. Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of CHRIST is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called GOD, or that is worshipped; so that he as GOD sitteth in the temple of GOD, shewing himself that he is GOD.

Paul went on to say in verse 5. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? It seems that in those days they had forgotten these things, and other doctrines were causing confusions in the churches. Again it seems that the churches have forgotten that Paul said these things. For there comes a time when the tares in the Kingdom are visibly seen in the world, fruits of the devil, tares, fruits of the son of perdition and these fruits are found midst the wheat, in the very midst of the wheat, the tares and wheat growing together, until the ending of the world.

Paul speaks concerning the anti-Christ, who comes with signs and lying wonders, with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish, because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Paul said first shall come a great falling away from the truth, from the love of the truth, from the love of heaven, and eternal life, from the love of righteousness, from the love of the gospels, from the love of JESUS, from the love of the sayings of JESUS. First of all, a great love of the world, and the flesh, and this life, and prosperity’s, and lands, and houses, and marriages, and children and all things that pertain unto this life shall be manifested. These are tares midst the wheat being gathered out of the wheat, being bundled together, gathering themselves together. The tares are being bundled together in the world, also, the homosexuals in bundles, the abortionists in bundles, the lesbians in bundles, the immoral in bundles, the fornicators in bundles, even the prisons of the world bundling tares together.

First comes the falling away from the truth, and then the grand delusion sent from GOD, sent into the churches that the masses would be deceived, those that love mammon. The root of all evil is the love of money, as written. The grand delusion, brethren, is sent by GOD to deceive those that love this life and the pleasures of it and the prosperity’s of it, bringing into its web and net, those that are seeking prosperity and not forgiveness, seeking the things of this world, and not the things of heaven, like a great net dragging in all the fish in the sea. With feigned words and lying wonders do the apostles and prophets of this hour stand in the pulpits around the world, standing as a great queen, standing as a great monarch with mighty signs and wonders and powers, deceiving and being deceived. And GOD says, I shall send upon them a grand delusion, a strong delusion that those who love not righteousness, nor my Son JESUS, nor His truths, nor His sayings, nor His teachings, shall believe this strong delusion and this lie. This gospel of the world and the things of the world, is that grand delusion sent into the world to separate to the right and left, to set one on the right and the other on the left. Those set on the right hand of GOD love righteousness and those that stand on the left hand of GOD are they that love this life, this world, and all the prosperity’s of it, education’s, exaltations, accomplishments, acclaims, ministries, vocations and all those things pertaining not unto righteousness, but unto life, this life, this world, and this flesh.

In the parable of the dividing of the sheep and the goats, the sheep on the right hand of the Lord and the goats on the left hand of the Lord, those that stand on the right hand of GOD are full of power, and those that stand on the left hand of GOD are also full of power, yet full of lying wonders, saying GOD said when GOD did not say what they minister and preach as the gospel of CHRIST. Those that stand on the left prophesy, preach, deliver the devils, do many mighty works, yet are divided out by the grand delusion sent to divide them out and point them out and bring them out into the light of truth. Those that stand on the right of the LORD, standing in righteousness, fulfill the word of GOD. Those that stand upon the left hand are full of power, full of ministries, full of many mighty works, yet are also full of a hatred of the truth, being lovers of pleasures, lovers of self, lovers of pre-eminence’s, lovers of praise, and lovers of prosperity, preaching godliness is gain. These too are fulfilling the words of JESUS CHRIST.

Now concerning the power, it says, GOD shall send the power to deceive. GOD shall endue with power to deceive those that love not righteousness. In Rev. we read, Chapter l3:l3-15 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, and deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live, And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Now brethren, keep in mind that Paul said, be ye not deceived, for the gathering up of the saints shall not come until after the anti-Christ be revealed in the earth, with great power and lying wonders, causing men to worship this beast that speaks, and that even has the power to cause those who believe the grand delusion to curse and hate and slay and rise up against and even kill and imprison, those who will not believe nor run after the grand delusion.

And we read further. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Brethren, I challenge you by the living GOD of heaven. Does not the grand delusion say you shall have no bread unless you feed the beast? You shall have no needs met unless you give to the beast? You shall not work, nor buy lands, nor houses, unless you give to the beast? And you are poor because you give not? And you have lack because you give not?

Wake up to righteousness and live, saith the scriptures. Wake up to righteousness and CHRIST will give you light, saith the scriptures.

And in Rev. 17, which is the chapter that speaks of the great harlot, that great harlot church, that great grand delusion that has enslaved the whole world and deceived the whole world, drunken with the blood of the martyrs of JESUS CHRIST, those that bear the true testimony of righteousness, it is written of them in verse 13. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. Verse 17 For GOD hath put in their hearts to fulfill His will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of GOD be fulfilled. In verse 14 we see that it says: These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen and faithful.

Now who is this one? He is the Manchild of Revelation 12 that is to appear in the earth. Those called and are faithful are the woman and her seed that bring forth the Manchild in that appointed watch that is prepared in the earth, and we know not which watch shall fulfill all things, all the words of scripture perfectly, the first, second or third watch, knowing it is written in the gospels that all three watches failed, all three women that were raised up in an outpouring, somehow, failed, or were failed, for the powers against them were too great, both in man, and in the spiritual world, all three failing. Even the fourth watch would travail, and travail, and travail against man and the powers of darkness, to bring forth the Manchild in the earth, and who knoweth her battle but heaven?

Since the beginning of time men have been slain for righteousness’ sake, beginning with Abel and continuing on down through the pages of time slaying the prophets of GOD, slaughtering the righteous, and through the hands of sinners? Not always. For though JESUS was turned over to the sinners for molestation’s and abusings, and crucifying, it was by the hands of the grand delusionists of CHRIST’S day that loved this world, this life, this flesh, prosperity, and the glory of the flesh and all of its great buildings, and great earthly tabernacles, and great images upon the earth of wealth, prosperity, and power and glory, and traditions and doctrines, that JESUS CHRIST was slain.

Brethren, the City of GOD, the new Jerusalem, is a spiritual City. It is a City that covers the earth with Her glory, and she is a spiritual City. And in one day shall this City rise up from the dust and shake herself free and bring to birth in one day, a glorious church, a glorious church powered by GOD Himself, not by a delusion, but by the truth, not a lie, but a truth. Men have added to and taken away from Revelation, and as written in its content, it is the Spirit of GOD and the Bride that say, Come. And let him that heareth, say, Come, and let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, GOD shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: and if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, GOD shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy City, and from the things which are written in this book.

He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, LORD JESUS.

When the Manchild enters into the world, and the City of GOD is formed, being the Bride of CHRIST, He which fulfills those things and testifies by being the fulfilment of those things, surely, the coming of the Great Anointed One’s returning is upon the world.

When Revelation is being fulfilled, and you have all of its testimonies in the earth, the grand delusion, the great harlot church, decked out with jewels of the Kingdom of JESUS CHRIST, full of wealth, full of prosperity’s, full of riches, merchandisers of the souls of men, sitting as a queen on the earth, also in the earth, at the same time, is the truth appearing and taking root and leavening the whole earth with the testimony of CHRIST, the fulfilling of the scriptures, truths concerning the book of Revelation, not given unto a man or men as written within its very pages, but given to a woman and her seeds in the earth, the birth of the Manchild coming through one of the watches in the earth that has prepared the earth for its transformation and regeneration, and cleansing.

Revelation declares the City of GOD is a spiritual City that shall descend down from the heavens unto men, and on the outside of it shall be the dogs, the sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie, all those who follow, and are of, and in, the grand delusion, the love of life doctrine, the prosperity doctrine, and the tithe and gain doctrine, a lie against the truth, a lie against the gospel of CHRIST. The grand delusion is the lie. Those that are fearful shall not inherit the City of GOD, the City of glory, the City of light and truth, where the Father and the Lamb, the Manchild, are the light thereof. They are the doctrine, the light, the glory, the power, the truth, the testimony. And He shall be seen face to face and served face to face.

The millennium? No such thing as men say. The rapture? No such thing as men say. The gathering of the saints, or the rapture, or the resurrection shall not occur until first the anti-Christ appears in the earth. Ah! The anti-Christ! Who sees him or knows what and who he is? an image? a beast? a number? a name? If Adam and Eve had loved righteousness, satan, the beast, the devil, could never have deceived them. Satan cannot deceive the elect, for they love only righteousness and shall not be ensnared in the grand delusion. It snares those who love unrighteousness, the wages of unrighteousness.
