Matthew 24: 1-4
Deception has always been one of Satan’s greatest strategies to distance us from God and his truth. The lie has always been his daily bread and making us believe it, has been his greatest victory. The fact that we believe a lie does not mean that it can turn into a truth. Sadly, this is the way we live our life, in the dark, wrapped in darkness and justifying our acts to feel good, but inside of us, there is something telling us that everything is a deception and that we need God’s truth to be free.
Augustine said once: “The heart of man will always be restless until he encounters God.” I believe that this is so. As long as we live in this world without Jesus, we will always live under the bunch of lies that this world wants us to believe.
Some of the strategies of deception which remind us that we are living in the end of the times are:
- False prophets and preachers who say they are coming in the name of Jesus, but it is not so.
- The denial of an absolute truth by this system of things, the world, and make us believe there are only relative truths.
- Make us believe we are self-sufficient, so we do not need divine help; moreover, man borders on the foolishness of denying that God is real.
- The love of many has cooled down, there is no compassion and mercy.
Jesus had already said this, consequently, we can say that separated from him, we cannot do anything.
God always arrives JUST IN TIME
