Let us have 'devotions' in our 'heart of hearts'. I do not know about you, but in 'solitude and silence', I have been hearing from the Lord, even more clearly than ever. As He has spoken, and taught me, and continues to teach me, as I am studying with Him, I have come to know what further He will have me to teach and post here.
Now, continuing from April 19, 26, 2020; May 3, 10, 2020 when we studied some 'valid' Scriptures giving each of us the 'two roads' [Matthew 7:13-14] we may be on, we began our 'D' series June 14, 2020. We have finished with the 'D', Post 2-A series, from June 28, 2020; July 12, 26; August 2, 2020.
Today, August 9, 2020, let's take a look at 'lying wonders' in our Post 'E' series. As we do, it shall become obvious how very important we all need to be on our 'guard' so that we can further 'learn about God' and 'His' and 'our enemy', Satan. We shall go slowly, giving ourselves the requisite time to truly pray and study with Our Mutual Teacher, the Holy Spirit. [John 6:44]. This may very well be one of the most important set of series at this time in the 'history of man ruling without God'. Amen. Amen.
I believe this is even more timely, as we consider 'nations rising against nations', world-wide. [Matthew 24-24; Mark 13; Luke 21.] [audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
We need to see what or 'who' is really the 'motivation' behind all the 'destruction', the 'ruler of the world', Apollyon or Abaddon, the 'destroyer'. [John 14:30; 1 John 5:19; Revelation 9:11]
For examples of 'counterfeiting', did Christ perform miracles? [Yes, we learned on our post of June 28, 2020] Then, we saw how the 'enemy' works. [Our post of July 12, 2020] All this 'knowledge' is available in the Holy Bible. There is no 'mystery', but, one must be 'biblical literate'. Otherwise, one will easily be 'deceived'.
[Revelation 12:9] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.htm
Further in review, we had a 'cliff-hanger' asked and answered in our posts July 12, 26, 2020 and August 2, 2020, determining how to 'distinguish' between God's hand in a miracle, versus the counterfeiting of the 'enemy'.
We considered that 'Since Satan is 'powerful, what and how then must we gauge all messages and teachings by, since miracles, visions, signs, etc. can be deceptive?' audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html. The answer is found in and through the Holy Bible and the 'character of God' in His purposes for 'miracles'. All are for God's 'purpose' for the 'good of man', for His Glory to be 'revealed', versus Satan's purpose for the death of man and for his destruction, in his hatred towards God. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Today, since 'all scripture is God-breathed', [2 Corinthians 13:5 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
let's begin to further 'explore' - 'what are lying wonders'?
Satan performs 'lying wonders', counterfeits. (2 Thessalonians 2:9).
But, first, since there is 'hope', let's see the 'end of the story'. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.htm
2 Thessalonians 2:8-12 provides:
'8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the LORD Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, 10and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.'
For remember, how God spoke through Isaiah 46:9-11, to wit: audio-bible.com/bible/bible.htm
9 'Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.' Amen. Amen.
Next, continuing this afternoon and evening, let's begin to 'understand' what 'lying wonders' are, AND examine ourselves to be sure that we are not already deceived, and, if so, to 'repent' and get back on the 'narrow road'. Let's take our time and not rush, for this is one of the most critical points we need to know, 'in such times as these'. [Esther 4:14; Matthew 7:13-14; Luke 13:23-25 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.htm ]
Thank you for returning, according to the 'will of the Lord'. Amen. Amen.
