Hello, John and Doves,
Old wine can be seen as a type of delusion
"Their wine [is] the poison of dragons, and the cruel
venom of asps." Deut 32:33
By contrast, Jesus offers us new wine in
new wineskins. [Matt 9:17, Mark 2:22,
Luke 5:37-38 NLT, NKJV, NIV]

" A Strong Delusion.... "
A Strong Delusion....
There has always been much discussion about what the "STRONG DELUSION"
may be that is spoken of in the New Testament. The verse says that
because people reject the TRUTH about Jesus that God "will allow" them
to believe a big, strong LIE. God does not create the lie, He will just
step back and allow people who have turned from the Truth to turn to
Some have said it could be the lie about UFO's or aliens taking away
those pesky Christians who stand in the way of the NWO agenda and
progress toward global unity when the Rapture occurs. That is certainly
plausible; however, another possibility just occurred to me as I was
listening to a heartwarming message on the love of the Father and the
free access to His throne of grace. The pastor said that God loves for
us to run into His arms and be near Him.
As I listened, Holy Spirit within me pointed out the stark and total
contrast of the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and the LIE of Islam. Our God
beckons to us with love and invites us to come and be covered with His
love and acceptance. That is possible because Jesus, God's Son, died to
make the way open for us to become children in the family of God the
Father. God died for us.
In Islam, their god requires that the followers die in Jihad or holy
war in order to enter Paradise and be accepted by him. He demands that
they be filled with hatred and to shed the blood of as many as possible
before their own blood is shed as a sacrifice to enter his presence.
Muslims die for their god-mirror opposite of the basic tenet of
Jesus died for us - Muslims die for their god. God pours out His love
on us and fills us with that love so we can pour it out on others.
Islam's allah pours out fear, hate and terror on his followers and
fills them up with fear, hate and terror to pour out on others. Again
the mirror opposite of Christ and His great LOVE.
1/3 - one third - one out of three, of the world's population is caught
up in the big, fat LIE of Islam and bow down to allah. Their numbers
are rapidly increasing and spreading throughout the earth.
IS THIS THE STRONG DELUSION?
Has it been right in our faces and so familiar that we are not even
seeing it for what it is? Why would anyone want to be a part of
anything so repulsive, so hateful, punitive and deadly? Could it be
because they rejected the TRUTH and by default believed the lie?
