WILL YOU BE DECEIVED?
Revelation 12:9 says, "And
the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the
Devil, and Satan,
which deceives the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out
WHY DOES THE BIBLE SAY THAT SATAN HAS DECEIVED THE WHOLE
This parallels Matthew 24:5,
"For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and
shall deceive many."
Since He spoke those words that day, religion has become one
of the leading
making scams in the
world. Many look religious, sound religious and claim
Christ's name saying Jesus, Jesus, Jesus and they might even
"talk in tongues,"
but do they really follow the true faith
of the Bible?
Amazingly, Revelation 14:12 describes the true faith
kept by the true followers of Christ in the end time.
Does your church fit the criteria? Or have you
been deceived??? You can know where you stand!
FOLLOWERS OF THE TRUE CHRIST::
Here is the patience of the saints;
those who keep the commandments of
God and the faith of Jesus.
So if Christ's true followers are those who keep the
Commandments, as the Bible indicates, then those who are
deceived would do just the opposite. They would even
that the Commandments are done away.
Now, some might try to say, well the commandments kept by
the saints are not the actual Ten Commandments,"
but they would not know their
Bible very well.
The word Commandments
used here in Revelation is "Entole" (Strong's
NT:1785). It is the very same word used by
Christ when He told the young rich man that to enter into
life, he must "keep the commandments." (Strong's
NT:1785) Then to make sure the young
man understood correctly, Christ started listing them.
"...If you want to enter life, obey the commandments. Which
ones?" the man inquired. Jesus replied, "`Do not murder, do not
commit adultery..' Matthew
Christ did not mention the first 4 commandments
because they lived in the nation of Judah! And everyone kept
the first 4. Including the Saturday Sabbath, as is noted many times
in the Bible. So, what is this Man of Sin, that
the Bible mentions?
Who is THE MAN OF SIN?
John 3:4 tells us that "Sin is the transgression of
the law." If Christ taught
THAT WE MUST KEEP THE LAW TO ENTER INTO LIFE, then what does the Man of Sin
teach about the law?
I Thessalonians 2:2-12
describes "The Man of Sin." It says he will appear in
the end time and deceive many. He is the Man of "Anomia"
which means the Man that
I Peter 4:18 says, "And if the righteous
scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"
Obviously, if we are trying to be in God's Kingdom, we cannot
follow someone who is ungodly and a sinner, yet the Bible indicates that
the whole world will be deceived by just such a man!
WILL YOU FOLLOW CHRIST OR
THE MAN OF SIN ?
The King James uses the
phrase Man of Sin, but other translations simply and
correctly call him the "MAN OF LAWLESSNESS."
MIRACLES, SIGNS AND WONDERS...2 Thessalonians
let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will
not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of
lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to
destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself
over everything that is called God or is worshiped,
so that he sets himself up in God's temple,
proclaiming himself to be God.
Don't you remember that when I was with you I used
to tell you these things? And now you know what is
holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the
proper time. For the secret power of
lawlessness is already at work; but the one
who now holds it back will continue to do so till he
is taken out of the way. 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.
The coming of the lawless one
will be in accordance with the work of Satan
displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles,
signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that
deceives those who are perishing. They perish
because they refused to love the truth and so be
saved. For this reason God sends them a
powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
and so that all will be condemned who have not
believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
WHAT IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST?
and...WILL YOU BE FOOLED BY
THE MAN OF SINS LYING SIGNS AND WONDERS?
I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two
horns like a lamb, and he
spoke as a dragon. And
he exercises all the power of the first beast before him, and causes
and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast,
whose deadly wound was healed. And
doeth great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven
on the earth in the sight of
deceives them that dwell on the earth by the
means of those
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
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
causes 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. Here
is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number
beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six
hundred threescore and six."
is the sign or "mark" of the true God. God rested on the
Sabbath day in Genesis. The Sabbath is the sign or mark that
you have the right God...the mighty creator! Exodus 31:12 says
that the Sabbath should be kept throughout your generations.
"And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, speak
thou also unto the children of Israel, saying,
my Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a
sign (mark) between me and you throughout your
generations; that ye may
know that I am the
LORD that doth sanctify you."
gives you a
showing that you have the actual God of creation, the
right God, the God of the 10

“Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change [Sabbath to
Sunday] was her act and the act is a mark of her

this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that

abolish the Sabbath day and command you to keep holy the first day
