Today many people live in an illusion that they mistake for reality. Nelson Mandella said “In prison, illusions can offer comfort.” This is true for the carnal minded Christian (the pro-choice, same sex marriage supporter, the Bible is not without error, social justice Christian) and the unbeliever. When in the prison of unbelief and carnality the illusion is more comforting than the reality. However after all of the smoke and mirrors there is only ONE REALITY OF GOD, YHVH, JESUS and it is this:
John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 2Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 3:6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. Genesis 3:13 And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.
Genesis 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Genesis 3:17 And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Genesis 3:18 Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; Genesis 3:19 In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. Mark 15:44 And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
Mark 15:45 And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. Mark 15:46 And he bought fine linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.
Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Luke 24:50 And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. Luke 24:51 And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. Rev 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. Rev 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. Rev 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. Rev 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. .
Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Rev 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: Rev 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
Rev 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
This beloved; written above is REALITY. God created all. Man sinned against God through the deception of Lucifer, Satan, the devil. By this sin fellowship with God was broken. God placed a curse of sin and death upon the earth. Because of this the world is dying and not getting better. We are not evolving but devolving. You will die one day, there are no exceptions.
God wanted to restore fellowship with His creation. He made a way for that reconciliation through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus came to this world and was crucified for the sins of the world. He was dead and buried and on the third day He arose and ascended into Heaven. He will come back not as suffering servant but as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. He will judge and those that believe in the name of Jesus and have accepted His gift of Salvation will live with Him forever. Those that do not will spend eternity in Hell. That is REALITY. To not believe does NOT make it less so. To NOT deal with it or accept it WILL NOT change it. Romans 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? Romans 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
The illusion of Satan is just that and illusion. It’s a false reality that does not exist accept in the minds of those that have been deceived by it. This is why the Children of the Light cannot understand the thought processes of the Children of Disobedience or Darkness. For ones sees the world for what it is in Reality; the other sees the world in an illusion that Satan has created to deceive those that refuse the truth and the REALITY of God. The illusion Of Satan’s reality is built upon lies and deception.
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? Gen 3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: Genesis 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Some illusions of Satan are;
Truth is relative; there are no absolutes
Abortion is healthcare
Homosexuality is not a sin
Sin is relative or not sin
Humanism –man is supreme and controls his destiny
Transgenderism – what you think determines you sex, not your biology. An illusion.
Transhumanism – “ye shall be as gods’
Tolerance = you must agree with me
Hate = you disagree with me
Liberalism = freedom
Conservatism = dictatorship or fascism
Israel is evil
enviromentalism- worshiping the creation more than the creator
Love is love; no matter the consequences
Animals have the same rights as humans
National sovereignty is bad
Globalism is good; a one world utopia (without God) can be achieved
Jesus was just a good man or symbol of goodness
Satan is not real and only represents evil.
There are many ways to God
Universalism – no judgment; everybody goes to heaven
There is no Hell
We all worship the same God just call him different names
Carnal worship pleases God.
Counterfit church (tares)
Evil is good; good is evil
DO WHAT THY WILT; IS THE WHOLE OF THE LAW
If you live your life by the things listed above you are living in an illusion and have been deceived. What you see is not always reality 2Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 2Co 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 2Co 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
When the Day of Judgment is upon us; the illusions of Satan will be swallowed by the REALITY of God.
Be on guard, if your reality is not founded in the Truth of God you are living in the devils deceptions and there you will stay. Christianity is not a religion but a reality.
JESUS SAVES- To God be the Glory
