A Time of Great Revelation and a Time of Strong Delusion
Updated: Feb 18
There are 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞, 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐬 removed, 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐝, 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐝, 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐬 (𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐧'𝐭 𝐒𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞) that have caused us mass confusion and many different ideas floating around these days.
We're trying to make sense of things. We're seeking His face. We have so much information at our fingertips and so many opinions to sift through. It's all a bit much sometimes, yes?
I remind myself it's ok to ask God questions.
But....I know there's a difference between questioning what God said and asking God a question. A huge difference.
Questioning God and deviating from His will has massive consequences that can affect generations of people (you learn this throughout your 'Old Testament' reading; there truly is nothing new under the sun).
That was what happened in the beginning; the enemy caused woman to question God and then add to what He said, ultimately leading to them eating of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. (Genesis 3)
After this happened, God in His mercy took them out of the Garden before they could get their hands on the tree of Life - God forbid they become as the gods, living eternally in their fallen state separated from God.
Praying about much, these days. We are in a time of great revelation and a time of strong delusion. Seems we are in some kind of transition period and I'd like to find myself on the right side of it. God's side. Praying He leads us all as we seek His face and His will. Many things are happening concurrently and way too fast to get fixated on one thing or for any of us to say we know what exactly is happening and why. Lord give us discernment.
When I stumble across new knowledge that seems to be coming down like a heavy downpour on these here internets as we all combine our pea brains to figure things out, I always consider we could be in a controlled release of information and it's all stuff the powers that shouldn't be want us to know for some reason to keep us off track or put us on a contrived track.
I tread wisely and bring my flash Light. (Light is capitalized because Jesus is my Light). Test all things; hold fast what is good.
And I sure don't share every little fringe finding with just any person. That can be a huge stumbling block to some who are young or weak in the faith. Just something to think and pray about.
I share some things in a way that if someone really is led to dig, there are links to dig around. There is some legwork involved and not many people are willing (or led) to do that. People are now getting 'truth' from TikTok, celebrities, and short videos.
We do not cast pearls before swine. We were warned of this. We were warned we'd be trampled to death if we choose to do so.
I read this book about Kabbalah secrets a while back and these pages I'm sharing below really stuck out to me. I took pictures of them because it seems very important. I can't help but think of what it says here and wonder if all the disclosure and "truth" coming out is a controlled release of information.
May I suggest we are are slowly being fed information in order to acclimate us during this transition period to accept what's to come? New Age jesus? A false messiah?
A god we've fashioned in our own minds (idol) when the carnal mind can't accept the things of God?
God is spirit and we worship Him in spirit and truth. The carnal mind can't grasp the deep things of God without the help of the Holy Spirit.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; do not profess to be wise in your own eyes and become a fool.
Proverbs 3, Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 2, Romans 8
On being wise in our own eyes and leaning on our own understanding: I am hearing the craziest stuff. I'm guilty of dipping my feet into the crazy, I admit. I even have some of it here on my site. But we have got to discern when we're on the crazy train and get the heck off.
God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
I put some very important notes in the comment section of this post:
Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.

The question frequently comes up, “Which version of the bible is the most reliable?”
We can study from several versions, use concordances, and use the discernment the Holy Spirit gives us. After all, all versions have been altered from the original in one way or another.
Jesus Christ is the Word and we preach Christ crucified. God's Word is perfect, but men's translations and tampering are not. But with our God given brains and the Holy Spirit, we can have understanding.
Jesus left us with the Holy Spirit because man has been polluting the Gospel since forever. I believe if Jesus were here today, He'd be flipping some tables over all the 𝐝𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐛𝐢𝐛𝐥𝐞, 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠, 𝐛𝐨𝐨𝐤𝐬 𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐝, 𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐞𝐝, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐬 (𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐧'𝐭 𝐒𝐜𝐫𝐢𝐩𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞) that have caused us mass confusion.
Strong delusion if you will. It won't get any better as time goes on, either, sad to say.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
1 Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
Revelation 2 Let us not leave, forsake, or forget our First Love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.
Jesus quotes Deuteronomy 6 during His ministry:
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
1 Corinthians 1:18-25 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the discernment of the discerning I will thwart.”
Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe.
For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
Lying Signs and Wonders
Speaking of 'signs' in 1 Corinthians 1:18-25, we will see many lying signs and wonders.
I think we could be seeing some now (media headlines).
We must be discerning on whether or not they are acts of God or acts of men that God is allowing to go forth. Will the signs and wonders be from antichrist spirits with supernatural abilities or will they be from The Most High? If it's possible, will even the elect be deceived by strong delusion because they are so eager for a sign?
Think of everything the sorcerers, magicians, and wise men were able to perform in Egypt during the plagues, for example. They were able to perform amazing feats!
False apostles, deceitful workers, transform themselves into apostles of Christ. They will be charismatic. Full of "love".
Right now, there are a lot of people saying a lot of things that sound wise, good, and spiritual.
We must test those spirits against the word of God. Demons are spiritual, too.
Someone said something along these lines....Even if we had a modern day Ezekiel warning us in the streets, we'd be just fine saying "Jesus is enough". How blessed are we. If I can find the exact quote, I'll share it below in the comment section.
There are many movements going viral.
Some of them are trying to make Jesus "relatable" or palatable for selfish reasons. Jesus sat with sinners, but He did not sin and never condoned sin. When Jesus walked this earth, the crowd choose Barabbas.
So remember that when many are embracing a version of Jesus they have fashioned in their own minds. This is very important if you are even remotely concerned about yours or anyone else's eternity.
A god I can fashion in my own mind is a WEAK god and not the God I serve.
A new heart and mind born again from the Holy Spirit of God. People like to leave that soul saving part off. Don't let any flesh bag sugar coat yours and my sin. Jesus taught repentance.
We have to recognize our sinful state to understand why we need a Savior.
Do not be deceived by these liars that only seek man's approval and to tickle your ears.
Either they are very deceived themselves or they love not the Truth and don't care about our soul one bit.
Test all things and hold on to what is good.
Read the Word of God yourself and remember God does not change and will not change. He is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
How can we say we KNOW anything when they lie monumentally about EVERYTHING?
Seek Jesus. The only Truth. With delusion and confusion amok, I hold close 1 Corinthians 1.
Cling to Christ whether you are amillennial, premillennial, post millennial, or even preterist...Whatever label people want to slap on themselves. Each position can be deceived as each one can make a case backed by scripture and make it sound right. I'm just saying. We've all seen it happen.
Think of how many bible prophets we see and how many will come out of the wood work as things continue to unfold. So many have their interpretations of Daniel 9, the 144k, the mark of the beast, etc. The list goes on and on. They believe they are right. They believe they are hearing from God.
We must read the scriptures ourselves. We must be in prayer. We must be discerning. We can't concern ourselves about 'they'. We must work out our own salvation with fear and trembling.
The strong delusion is and will be just that - STRONG.
The world is going to world.
I'm not here to "stop" anything.
God allows strong delusion.
We are in a time where much of the truth is in plain sight and we can make the choice on Whom we serve. God will give us the sound mind to discern the times we are in.
I am sharing this to warn friends, family, and brothers and sisters in Christ. I will also link some posts below that I discern are very important things to tuck away as things continue to unfold. Best believe as long as I am on this earth in my flesh, I will be testing as we go and will continue to do so until I am in my immortal state (glorified body). Jesus said His Kingdom was not of this world and I believe Him.
Also, you will see many words in this post are in bold print. A lot of them have links attached for further reading/testing if you would like to.
