|2 Thessalonians 2:9-11|
9 Even him, whose coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all the deceivableness of unrighteousness in those who perish; because they did not receive the love of the truth so that they might be saved.
11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie;
4 So I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, no one answered; when I spoke, they did not hear; but they did evil before my eyes and chose that in which I did not delight."
|Mark 13:22 |
22 For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and show signs and wonders, to seduce even the elect, if it were possible.3 [Jesus said the false prophets in sheep's clothing would come. John said the antichrists and false apostles had come and had gone out from among them. Peter saw the false teachers had come. Paul saw the false apostles had come, and warned the brothers night and day for three years of more coming. And in Revelation, John saw where the whole world was to go after the false prophets and the false church, which occurred shortly afterwards. The false church is Revelation's whore of Babylon, riding the beast of many names, (41,000 sects in Christendom), with horns like a lamb [resembles the true church], but who speaks like a dragon, (men speaking from their carnal minds, which is enmity with God, and their vain opinions from their evil imaginations), instead of speaking words supplied by the Holy Spirit, as Jesus and the Apostles did.]
