Prophet: Year 2017: The Agony of Deceit:

2 Thessalonians 2:9–12: “The one whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan, with all power and signs and false wonders, and with all the deception of wickedness for those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they might believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness.” (NASB)

There is only one way to truly love the truth; that is to take up your cross and deny yourself. Why? In order to accept the truth you must lay down that which you want to hear for that which is true; you will have to go through the agony of death on the cross – self-denial – to reach and find the truth; deceit will promise you life only to deliver the agony of the flames of eternal death and Hell. In 2017 you will need to make a choice: The Agony of the Cross, or The Agony of Deceit.

Your most important prayer this year is for the Holy Spirit to give you Discernment, Wisdom, Strength and Courage. Discernment so you will know truth from error; Wisdom to know how to interpret it; Strength and Courage to accept it.

In Luke 20:9-18, Jesus told the religious of His time something they did not want to hear, and as we read further in Luke we see that they refused to hear: “And when they heard it, they said, ‘May it never be!’ But He looked at them and said, what then is this that is written, ‘THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED, THIS BECAME THE CHIEF CORNER stone’? Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces (the agony of the cross); but on whomever it falls, it will scatter him like dust (the agony of deceit).” (NASB) Do you have ears to hear?

Jeremiah 6:13–14: “For from the least of them even to the greatest of them, everyone is greedy for gain, and from the prophet even to the priest everyone deals falsely. They have healed the brokenness of My people superficially, saying, ‘Peace, Peace,’ but there is no peace.” (NASB)

1 Thessalonians 5:1–3: “Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, ‘Peace and safety!’ then destruction will come upon them suddenly like birth pangs upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (NASB)

2 Thessalonians 2:3–4: “Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.” (NASB)

As it’s written: The Bridegroom will come at an unexpected hour and suddenly for His bride. Bride is your lamp full of oil – are you ready?

I strongly encourage all to read the chapter in our book,
The Portrait of a Christian, titled:
Satan, Disguised as an Angel of Light!

Redemption and Judgment are upon us:

The hammer of the clock begins its move to strike its chime for the twelfth time.

Yet who will believe the message?
