Signs Of The Times
Deception - Before Christ can return the scene must be set for the Antichrist to come
Matthew 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
The first words from Christ identified DECEPTION as the foremost sign of the last days.
In His response, He emphasized religious deception
Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man DECEIVE you.
The term "Deception" in its simplest form means:
Deception is an Act of Dishonesty
The deception of sin finds its roots in the Book of Genesis and is linked to the coming of the Lord in the New Testament - Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle 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? Subtle hard to notice or see : not obvious. : clever and indirect : not showing its real purpose.
Deception is placing its claws in all aspects of our lives, in governments, in the financial institutes, in politics, in local authorities and the evidence of it is becoming clear to see day by day.
Journalist Gina Miller wrote an article in the online version of the guardian about our current government under the leadership of Boris Johnson and states that "Under Boris Johnson, corruption is taking hold in Britain"
When those who are governing us have no regards for integrity, corruption and deception then become objects to set the stage the appearance of evil.
