The Age of Deception and the Falling Away of II Thessalonians 2: 3-4

We are living in an age of deception and in the time of the psychopath, because a major trait of the pychopath is consistent telling of lies. The age of deception and of the psychopath is also the period in which the society disintegrates into opposing factions by race, gender, etc, and the time in which the culture is destroyed. Georg Lukács, an early Transformational Marxist, said that the Abolishment of Culture was necessary for Transformational Marxism to take over a nation.

Bible prophecy warns about False Prophets who are deceptive, pretending to teach the truth but are teaching false doctrines and practices.

" And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. " Matthew 24: 4

For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." Matthew 24: 5

This is a description of the False Prophet, who teaches that there is a Jesus Christ, but the False Prophet is deceptive because he is preaching another Gospel and another Jesus (Galatians 1: 6-9, II Corinthians 11: 4).

The one who preaches in the spirit of anti-Christ (I John 4: 3) says that Christ did not appear in human flesh, is not God, and not the Messiah.

Another verse of Matthew 24 using deceive is Matthew 24: 11, "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many." II Peter 2: 1-3 supports Matthew 24: 11, saying that False Prophets bring in damnable heresies, speak evil of he truth and make merchandise of you.

"For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Matthew 24: 24

Where do the False Prophets operate? They are in the churches, and most of them were trained in the Christian seminaries.

The deceptive mindset of the False Prophets lead those who dwell on the earth (Luke 21: 35) into doctrines which are the exact opposite of the truth of scripture. Scripture is often subtle and not easily understood by the mind of the natural man, who in I Corinthians 2: 14 who does not receive the things of the Holy Spirit. So, the deceptive False Prophets can deceive those who dwell on the face of the whole earth, those in the spiritual condition of the natural man who do not have the hope of glory, Christ in you (Colossians 1: 27), and do not sit in Christ Jesus in heavenly places with him (Ephesians 2: 6).

The tribulation is, in part, the indignation of Isaiah 26: 20, the period of time when the False Prophets deceive all but the elect. The work of the False Prophets in causing the falling away of II Thessalonians 2: 3-4 spiritually advances toward the Abomination of Desolation,(Luke 21: 20), the great battle of Gog and Magog (Ezekiel 38-39), and the Pale Horse period (Revelation 6: 7-8) of time where Death and Hell dominate society. This is likely also a period in which some individuals and large groups are demon possessed.

"They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. 28. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29. But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. 30. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." Luke 17: 27-30

Church members may make the connection between the homosexuality in the city of Sodom and the political correctness of the present day surge of lesbianism, homosexuality and the more extreme form of the feminist movement. Political Correctness, as now used to manipulate and dominate many people, comes out of the Transformational Marxist movement began in this country in about 1950 by the Frankfurt School. The point, though, is that Luke 17: 27-30 predicts that a peak of evil in society will be reached, likely in the tribulation.

There was an earlier time in which sin reached a peak.

"….the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose” Genesis 6:2

In the Sodom event the God-given heterosexual relationship was replaced in part or in full by homosexuality. Earlier, the fallen angels had, partly or totally, taken over the God-given human heterosexual relationship, which marks a peak time of transgression.

“…And the angels who kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example…” Jude 1:6, 7

"For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5. And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6. And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;" II Peter 2: 4-6

Jude and Peter both connect the fallen angel takeover of the human heterosexual relationship and the homosexual takeover in Sodom and Gomorrah. Both events mark a climax, or height of transgressive behavior.

“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practice, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people” Daniel 8:23

The definition of the Hebrew word translated as "trangressors" in Strong's is interesting. It is Hebrew word number 6586, pasha, "...to break away from just authority, i.e. tresspass, apostatize, quarrel, offend, rebel, revolt, transgress."

The transgressors which come to the full not only come to the full in sin but also quarrel against the truth of God. They include the False Prophets, who quarrel against the truth of God.

The False Prophets are now operating in the Church after the Falling away of II Thessalonians 2: 3-4. The False Prophets lead the Church more and more into false doctrines, and the result is that the Church has no spiritual understanding or strength to stand up to the fall of the society into homosexuality, etc, led by political correctness.

Remember that Matthew 24 uses deceive in verses 4, 5, 11,and 24. The False Prophets of the Church use deception in leading the "collective" out of the truth and more and more into false doctrines..

Remember that Zephaniah 3: 13 says "The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth." This is saying the same thing as Revelation 14: 5, "in their mouth was found no guile."

A distinguishing trait of the remnant is that they are not deceptive, in our present day age of deception, which is also the age of the psychopath. One of the traits of the psychopath is persistent telling of lies.

Those who claim to be of the remnant but are deceptive are not the remnant.

As part of not being deceptive in the age of deception, the remnant also comes out of the bondage to the dialectic way of thinking and of defending and promoting doctrines. This is subtle, and hard for many to understand.

The dialectic was used by the Serpent-Dragon in Genesis 3: 1-6 where he talked Eve out of obedience to God and brought about the Fall.

"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:" I Timothy 6: 20

The Textus Receptus says "ω τιμοθεε την παρακαταθηκην φυλαξον εκτρεπομενος τας βεβηλους κενοφωνιας και αντιθεσεις της ψευδωνυμου γνωσεως"

Oppositions is from αντιθεσεις, or antithesis. Wait a minute! Anti-thesis? Thats part of the Hegelian dialectic. How did that Greek word get in I Timothy 6: 20?

antithesis is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance number 477, which is said to mean "opposition, i.e., a conflict of theories." In the Hegelian dialectic there is an opposition of two positions (theories, if you wish).

The "knowledge" which is seen by those who use these oppositions of knowledge, the anti-thesis of knowledge, have a "knowledge" that is falsely named.

This is exactly what the Hegelian dialectic in the hands of the Marxists does. The opposition of two positions, or two theories or two beliefs (attitudes, world views), produces a synthesis which is falsely seen as "knowledge," or is presented as knowledge, when it is not true knowledge, because it is a compromise with the absolute truth of the word of God.


"Dialectic (also dialectics and the dialectical method), from Ancient Greek διαλεκτική, is a method of argument.....The word dialectic originated in ancient Greece, and was made popular by Plato in the Socratic dialogues."

"In classical philosophy, dialectic (Greek: διαλεκτική) is a form of reasoning based upon dialogue of arguments and counter-arguments, advocating propositions (theses) and counter-propositions (antitheses)."

"Aristotle said that it was the pre-Socratic philosopher Zeno of Elea who invented dialectic, of which the dialogues of Plato are the examples of the Socratic dialectical method."

The dialectic is a form of deception and the Marxist version of the Hegelian dialectic has been developed into a belief and attitude change procedure, which also infiltrated the churches in the 20th century.
