Deception…Thoughts from an American Soldier

Posted in American soldier with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2018 by paulthepoke

Matthew 24:4 Jesus answered, “See to it that no one deceives you…”

Πλανάω/planaó: lead astray, deceive, cause to wander. This Greek word is the source of the English word for planet, as in Jupiter, Saturn, Earth, etc. Definition provided Strong’s Concordance.

Jesus tells us to be on guard against deception. There is no deception in Christ.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me…”

Quran 3:54 And they (the disbelievers) schemed, and Allah schemed (against them): and Allah is the best of schemers.

The Arabic word used here for scheme or plot is makara, which literally means “deceit”. If Allah is supremely deceitful toward unbelievers, then there is little basis for denying that Muslims are allowed to do the same. See also Quran 8:30 and 10:21. Taken collectively these verses are interpreted to mean there are circumstances when a Muslim may be compelled to deceive others for a greater purpose.

The 9/11 hijackers practiced deception by going into bars and drinking alcohol. These acts of deception were to distract. They did not want to create potential suspicion they were Muslim fundamentalists plotting jihad. These efforts worked well. John Walsh, the host of a popular American television show, claimed after the fact their bar trips were evidence of hypocrisy.

The transmission from Flight 93 records the hijackers telling their doomed passengers that there is “a bomb on board”. but that everyone will “be safe” as long as “their demands are met.” Obviously, none of this was true. These men were intensely devoted to Islam. They were willing to “slay and be slain for the cause of Allah” as the Quran puts it. The hijackers saw nothing wrong with employing taqiyya to facilitate their mission of mass murder.

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) insists that it “has not now or ever been involved with the Muslim Brotherhood, or supported any covert, illegal, or terrorist activity or organization.”  In fact, it was created by the Muslim Brotherhood and has bankrolled Hamas.  At least nine founders or board members of ISNA have been accused by prosecutors of supporting terrorism.

The notorious Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) is so well known for shamelessly lying about its ties to terror and extremism that books have been written on the subject.  They take seriously the part of Sharia Law that says, “It is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory.”

The goal is the ascendancy of Islam, and Sharia itself, on the American landscape.

Psalm 2:1-6 Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying, “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord holds them in derision. Then He will speak to them in His wrath, and terrify them in His fury, saying, “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.”

The Antichrist

Posted in Antichrist/Beast, Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2014 by paulthepoke

The term Antichrist is penned by one author in the Bible, John. 1 John 2:18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. In the original Greek, the word for antichrist is antichristos. Per Strong’s Concordance it is defined as the adversary of the Messiah.

John’s language regarding the antichrist is straight forward and not complicated. 1 John 2:22 Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.

The spirit of the antichrist is at work today (November 2014) and has been the case since the first century. This is hard to deny or argue when one looks at the condition of the world today. 1 John 4:3 and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

In general, the issue is deception. There are and will be those who deny that Jesus lived in bodily form on Earth. People deny the physical reality of Christ. 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is the deceiver and the antichrist. John is talking about false teachers.

It makes sense the antichrist will be a liar. He is under the authority of Satan. Here is what Jesus had to say about Satan. The context of these verses is Jesus talking to some Jewish folks. John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

The antichrist is a counterfeit to the real deal, Jesus. Hitchcock and Ice provide a comparison and overview in their book. Jesus is the truth; the antichrist is the lie. Christ is the Holy One; the antichrist is the lawless one. Jesus is a man of sorrows; His counterpart is a man of sins. Jesus is the Son of God; the antichrist is the son of destruction. Christ cleansed the Temple; the antichrist will desecrate the Temple. Jesus is the Lamb of God; the antichrist is the beast (The Truth Behind Left Behind by Mark Hitchcock and Thomas Ice).
