The Enemy’s Playbook For Counterfeit Truth and The Deception Of Nations

Satan has been conspiring with fallen angels and human agents to take over the world for approximately six thousand years now. Just moments after his failed coup in heaven, he set his sights on earth, and he has been hard at work ever since, deceiving and devouring (Revelation 12:9; 1 Peter 5:8).

His primary methodology is deception. He lies, tricks, and counterfeits in order to convince his victims that his way is better than God’s way. He “transforms himself into an angel of light,” and sadly, many fail to see through his disguise (2 Corinthians 11:14). His disguise can be quite convincing and persuasive (Ephesians 5:6; Colossians 2:4; 2 Thessalonians 2:3).

Satan has many earthly co-conspirators working at his behest. Indeed, “many deceivers have gone out into the world.” (2 John 7) The Bible warns, “Evil men and imposters will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13). “The Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons” (1 Timothy 4:1).

Satan’s ultimate aim, of course, is to blind people’s hearts to the Gospel (2 Corinthians 4:4). To do this, he counterfeits the gospel by convincing people that they can overcome the penalty of sin by doing good works, trying harder, being better. This is a lie. God’s Word says we can never be good enough to earn God’s forgiveness. We can only be saved from hell by receiving the free gift of eternal life by faith (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; Romans 4:4-5).

Satan attempts to counterfeit almost everything that God created for good. Money, sex, pleasure, authority, and many other divinely ordained concepts are distorted, perverted, and twisted into something fleshly and evil. They may have an earthly, enticing glow, but they lack the substance that God intended, and under Satan’s direction they lead to great pain and sorrow.

Satan is even trying to counterfeit life. In Genesis 6, we read how he sent some of his demons to cohabit with human women resulting in a non-human race of hybrid giants. As a result of this abhorrent action, God destroyed the earth with a global flood, saving only Noah and his righteous family.

God imprisoned these demons who “left their proper domain” and “went after strange flesh,” and they are now “reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day” (Jude 6-7; 2 Peter 2:4). Today, Satan’s futile efforts to create life continue through the transhumanist agenda.

In the future, during the seven-year tribulation following the Rapture, Satan’s counterfeiting campaign will reach unprecedented heights. The unholy trinity consisting of Satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet will impose complete tyrannical control over a one-world political, religious, and economic system, mimicking God’s sovereignty. The Antichrist, indwelt by Satan, “will oppose and exalt himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped,” declaring himself to be God (2 Thessalonians 2:4).

God’s people of old were told to “not to forget God’s law” and to “keep His commandments” by “binding them around the neck” (Proverbs 3:1-3). They were instructed, “bind them as a sign on your hand,” and “as frontlets between your eyes” (Deuteronomy 6:8). The Israelites sought to fulfill this command literally with Scripture holders on their bodies (phylacteries) and on their door frames (mezuzahs). Similarly, in the future seven-year tribulation, people will be required to show their allegiance to Satan by taking a mark on their foreheads or hands (Revelation 13:16-18).

As Satan’s counterfeits flood our world, how can we avoid being swept up in a tide of deception? God’s Word provides the answer. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1 John 4:1). We must be on guard at all times, comparing what we hear and see with the Truth of Scripture.

Are you being deceived? Not all that glitters is gold. It may be a demonic deception masquerading as a beautiful light. Be on guard!

Slumbering Preachers Need To Wake Up To The Reality That The King Is Coming

Bible prophecy is given as a light shining in a dark place (2 Peter 1:19). Talking about it should not instill fear in the Christian; rather, provide confirmation that the “blessed hope” is ever nearer and the time ever shorter to snatch people from the fire.

A Divinely-Appointed Independence Foretold 2,500 Years Ago

God’s hand in the deliverance and survival of the Jewish people is a story like no other. Miracle after miracle took place, whether it be the Lord instilling fear in the heart of their enemies or His miraculous intervention when soldiers were in a seemingly irredeemable situation.

‘Hour Of Decision’: Examining The Remarkable History Of The ‘National Day Of Prayer’

The rally was a historic event. Mr. Graham’s message marked the first time an evangelistic service had been conducted from the steps of the nation’s Capitol. But America’s Pastor was far more concerned with the significance. It was time to pray. It was time to get real with God.
