Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Here is a definition for you, “a strong belief in a falsehood or illusion – a condition of departure from reality – to believe a lie.” What does the definition define? The word Delusion. Listen to this somber prediction found in 2 Thessalonians, regarding the world Leader the Bible predicts is coming;
His coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thess.2:9 – 12.
We are already seeing something of that delusion all around us. So how can we escape? The text here is clear, do what these who are referred to did not do, receive the love of the truth so that you can be saved. And what is that truth? God come in the flesh took the penalty for your sins on Himself and paid that penalty in full and today He offers you full and complete forgiveness and eternal life if you will only call upon His name. The choice is Delusion leading to eternal death or Deliverance leading to eternal Delight.
