Why Are Christians Deceived by Satan’s Deceptions?

The COVID plandemic has been a massive satanic deception. No coronavirus responsible for the alleged disease has ever been isolated. But instead a massive propaganda campaign has been propagated on us all. Sure, people got sick and some died, but people get sick and die every year from respiratory diseases, which normally affect the aged more than any other demographic. But no lab ever found a virus, called SARS-COV-2, which caused the disease. So I call this the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind. Thus, it could only be the work of the Satan. Only an evil spiritual entity could coordinate such a grand plan.

But why did most Christians all over the world fall for such a hoax? The following scripture comes to mind.

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

Matthew 24:24

In my opinion, this means that those who truly are the Lord’s will not be deceived. The verse employs Hebrew idiom which uses the expression “if it were possible” implying it isn’t possible but it comes very close to it. But those with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit will not be deceived, whereas all those fake yet professing “Christians” will be deceived.

For this reason I do not like the word “Christian” and do not identify as one. Most are CINO = Christians in name only! Not true born-again believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Also for this reason I am not a member of any established church or denomination. I do not like to “play” church. I have tried that and have learnt my lesson.

Instead I meet with other true followers of Jesus each Sunday in a park. We are all followers of Jesus Christ. I would hope that many who are still in the church system would see the problem and either seek a true called out ekklesia (assembly) if they can find one or form small house churches like ours.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be you separate, says the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

2 Corinthians 6:17

In the book of Revelation we read

And cast him [Satan] into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years [period of the church age] should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season [while].

Revelation 20:3

Jesus Christ being the only person who could bind Satan in prison, held him there during the church age. This does not literally mean 1000 years but is symbolic of a long period of time, the church age from Christ at His first coming to His second coming. This is amillennial eschatology, which I believe is correct. But after the church age is finished towards the end of the world as we know it, just before Christ returns, Jesus released Satan from the pit, which means that he can now deceive the nations. See Revelation 20:1-8: The Church Age.

And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

Revelation 20:7

COVID was mass formation deception on both those who call themselves Christians and those who do not. But what about all the other deceptions of Satan?

The biggest one I have spent decades of my life exposing is the hoax that the universe spontaneously came into existence from nothing, via a “big bang”. This involves the so-called science of cosmology, which by any true definition of science does not qualify as science. See Cosmology is Not Science!

Then there is the Big Lie of evolution, that life spontaneously arose from nonliving chemistry billions of years ago and ever since has been evolving, starting from some pond scum to all the living organisms we see today, even you.

These deceptions are easy to point out to many “Christians” though many reject the truth of the historicity in the book of Genesis with the creation account. That to me is astonishing. It has made me really question their faith in the living God. But no one is perfect. However why are so many deceived?

What pains me even more is how so many who call themselves Christians fall for the satanic deceptions of non-believers when they pontificate on certain subjects which they claim are Biblical. For example, this whole Flat Earth deception. Nowhere in the Bible do we read of a Flat Earth. What I mean is a globally flat earth. Of course locally the earth can be flat, but not globally.

The Flat Earth (FE) nonsense according to one of the leading advocates who identifies as an atheist means the rejection of the last 400 years of modern physics. This includes everything after and including the work of Sir Isaac Newton, who was truly a born-again follower of Jesus Christ.

A rejection of modern science is illogical. To reject gravity, all Newton’s laws of motion, optics, quantum theory, means that you cannot even believe that these words you are reading on you computer, tablet or smart phone are real. They must all be an hallucination.

Besides the existence of satellites and particularly the ISS refutes the whole Flat Earth paradigm. But my point here is that it is a psyop on these so-called Christians. In this modern age of censorship it is not censored. So the inverse must be the truth. The globalists want you to believe nonsense so they don’t censor it.

More nonsense I have read about is the alleged moon-landing hoax. You can find an enormous amount of YouTube “scientists” who allegedly refute that man ever landed on the moon. More nonsense. How do you hide a program involving hundreds of thousands of engineers and scientists and others? How do they all keep the same lie?

It is quite ludicrous considering some conspiracies also include the notion that humans have colonised the moon and have had bases there for a long time. Also some claim no spacecraft has ever made it successfully into orbit let alone has left Earth orbit. Therefore none have ever flown by other planets or in the case of spacecrafts Pioneer 10 and 11 they have not left the solar system as NASA alleges.

To maintain this hoax it is alleged that NASA and all other space agencies have lied about everything. This must include the ones I have personally worked with — JPL and ESA. I also have personal knowledge of the scientist Brian O’Brien who had Apollo astronauts leave dust sensors on the moon from which he collected data for a decade or so. Was he lying to me?

Then there are those earth-based labs that continually monitor the earth-moon distance using lasers where they reflect light pulses from corner cubes that were placed on the surface of the moon back in the early 1970s. Are all the scientists doing this today living in a Matrix simulation?

Besides what about the Indian, the Israeli, the Chinese, the Japanese and the Russian space agencies? Have they all also been lying? That means the number of employees required to keep the lie is ever expanding probably into millions.

More ignorance comes from those who claim that the planet earth is immovable. But this might be forgiven if they understood anything about physics and reference frames. And Earth Centred stationary reference frame is one choice you could make but so is a Sun Centred frame a valid choice. They each have their own utility.

The big debate from the time of Nicolas Copernicus was a science based debate, whether the correct way to describe our universe was with a heliocentric or a geocentric reference frame. As it turns out both are valid. But that is not what the geocentrists were fighting for. And it was not a religious debate either. That is a false idea that continues to circulate. It was all about the evidence, the science.

The absolute geocentrists do not understand this. They argue that intrinsically there is only one way to observe the universe, and that is from a stationary earth, which the rest of the universe rotates around. They claim that this is what the Bible contends. I disagree.

And why do the FEers accept the Greeks scientists of the 3rd century BC but not the followers of Jesus in later centuries who were also scientists? They seem to rely on Archimedes and Euclid quite a lot. That means a rejection of 2200 years of science and mathematics since then.

Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water?

The psyop does not stop there. There are some who even claim all science is false. Probably because they have seen the COVID deception. It is understandable but science is not the result of the modern day government beaurocrats and deep state operatives who like to dictate to us their so-called ‘science’, that is really just scientism.

Nor does it depend on the innate biases that so-called scientists hold. Most believe in the Big Lie of evolution or the Bigger Lie that Nothing created the Universe.. But that does not matter because true science, God’s science is self correcting. Even gravity rejecting FEers will find out the hard way as some have already. Shooting yourself up in a homemade rocket to disprove the curvature of the globe cost one his life.

Just like any religious cult FE is a cult, as is the moon hoax or that spacecraft have never left lower Earth orbit. Also it is a global cult belief that vaccines are good for you — “safe and effective”. None are in fact. And those who believe in evolution or the big bang are also cult followers. They live and work under demonic deception. Most of the world lives under one sort of deception or another. And it seems Christians are no exception. Hence I do NOT call myself a Christian.

The deceptions now are so ubiquitous that I have to believe Jesus Christ has released Satan from the pit and he is free now to deceive at will.

All logic is gone from some. To believe that a man can have a baby and to give birth through his penis surely must be insanity. But not these days. Anyway I digress.

I still need to answer my title question: Why Are Christians Deceived by Satan’s Deceptions? Christians can be deceived. But maybe many who claim to be do not have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. But perhaps there is more to it.

They are deceived because they are not truly followers of Jesus. They may identify as Christians, but I know one guy who openly declares himself an atheist, yet fiercely also says he is a Christian.

Paul writing to the Thessalonian church wrote:

Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now you know what withhold that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity does already work: only He who now lets [restrains] will let [restrain], until He be taken out of the way. And then shall that wicked one be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness [deception] of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Thessalonians 2:5-12

Churches like government are easily corrupted. When the Catholic Church became a bank that was the end. You can’t operate a bank and give spiritual guidance. Money corrupts. As for the people, most are dimwitted and feel a need to be led. When you scare them then offer the solution they will follow. Herd mentality. Think about the security people in the lobby of the Twin Towers telling people to go back to their offices after the plane hit. Most did and paid for it with their lives.

This is not the only deception. Homosexual ideology has taken over the schools in USA. Drag queens grooming kindergarten kids thru college.

I agree with the first part , speaking of the deception of covid that was very well explained and a good read, but the second part talking about FE I found very insulting. Calling it stupid and people who believe it stupid is not a very endearing way to get your point of view across. You said it must be true because so many scientists and astronauts say so, they can’t all be deceived or lying. Those same people also say there is no God so there goes that logic. You said ” the bible doesn’t mention a flat earth”
Your right, but it doesn’t mention a round one or a square one or ball either. As a matter of fact God knows what a ball is because he refers to Moab and tossing it like a ball. Isaiah 22:18
Isaiah 40:22 the only time the word circle is used in the bible God sits on His throne looking down upon the circle of the earth. If the earth was a ball he would only see the top half and then only the people at the very top, in a flat earth model He would see the ice cap ring and all the inhabitants and everything going on.
It does mention the earth doesn’t move Psalm 104:5
1 Chronicles 16:30
Psalm 93:1. It’s on foundations how can it then spin, the billions of tons of water and rocks held onto a spinning ball by a gravity would be so strong I wouldn’t be able to get up off the ground let alone jump.
It also speaks twice of the sun being stopped once for Ahaz and once for Joshua in Joshua 10:3 the sun and the moon stopped until the battle was over. Are you saying the bible is wrong there that he stopped the earth , if it’s wrong there it could also be wrong in other places. I prefer to believe it’s correct everywhere or how can I trust Gods word.
When Jesus returns “all eyes will see him” how can that happen on a globe? Only those who he will be directly above would be able to see him, those on the opposite side of a globe wouldn’t see anything.
You also mentioned an athiest being an expert Eric Dubay, yes he’s knowledgeable but check out Rob Skiba a follower of the Way expert who recently past away in the prime of his life and of unusual circumstances (he knew too much). Many experiments have been done by many people that prove no curve.

//I agree with the first part , speaking of the deception of covid that was very well explained and a good read, but the second part talking about FE I found very insulting. Calling it stupid and people who believe it stupid is not a very endearing way to get your point of view across. //

Nowhere in the article did I say people who believe FE are stupid. I said FE is nonsense, which it is. Besides I am speaking about the facts of science and a biblical world view which most Bible believing Christians have held for the past 400 years. But I would argue that the belief in a globe goes back to the Greeks. Ironically, in 200 BC Eratosthenes was able to measure the radius of the earth and got it correct to within 10%. See https://biblescienceforum.com/2020/02/04/job-38-and-a-flat-earth/

//You said it must be true because so many scientists and astronauts say so, they can’t all be deceived or lying. Those same people also say there is no God so there goes that logic.//

What about all the bible-believing scientists? Especially those in NASA? I personally know some, who are biblical creationists, who work at JPL, and were involved in various planetary missions, including the Cassini probe.

//You said ” the bible doesn’t mention a flat earth” Your right, but it doesn’t mention a round one or a square one or ball either. //

I disagree. The scripture does mention a globe. See https://biblescienceforum.com/2016/03/18/the-earth-is-not-flat-and-hangs-upon-nothing/

//As a matter of fact God knows what a ball is because he refers to Moab and tossing it like a ball. Isaiah 22:18//

That passage has nothing to do with the planet Earth.

//Isaiah 40:22 the only time the word circle is used in the bible God sits on His throne looking down upon the circle of the earth. If the earth was a ball he would only see the top half and then only the people at the very top, in a flat earth model He would see the ice cap ring and all the inhabitants and everything going on.//

There are only three verses in the OT with this Hebrew word חוּג khûg. The other two are Proverbs 8:27 and Job 22:14. The last one makes a reference to the heavens above the earth.

Job 22:14, “Thick clouds are a covering to Him, that He sees not; and He walks in the circuit [khûg] of heaven.” (KJVER)

Here the Hebrew word khûg is translated ‘circuit’. It would make no sense to have a circuit about a flat earth but around a spherical earth where the clouds are located makes perfect sense.

Note, there are many similarities between Indo-European and Semitic languages.1 Hence, the Hebrew word khûg may be related to the European words kugel (Middle High German), kula (Polish), kugla (Serbo-Croatian), gugā (their Proto-Indo-European root),2,3,4 and the modern Arabic word for ball, globe, orb or bowl — ‘kurah’. The ‘kh’ in the Hebrew is a guttural ‘g’. All of these clearly do refer to a spherical object.

For references see https://biblescienceforum.com/2016/03/18/the-earth-is-not-flat-and-hangs-upon-nothing/

//It does mention the earth doesn’t move Psalm 104:5//

Psalm 104:5 “Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”

That means that the Earth will remain forever, that it will not be destroyed.

1 Chronicles 16:30 does not refer to a stationary Earth but that the world is firmly established; that it will not be destroyed. God will preserve it forever.

//Psalm 93:1. It’s on foundations how can it then spin, the billions of tons of water and rocks held onto a spinning ball by a gravity would be so strong I wouldn’t be able to get up off the ground let alone jump.//

Your logic does not follow. The verse is about God power and strength. See section under heading Geocentrism https://biblescienceforum.com/2014/02/22/the-cosmological-principle-and-geocentrism/

//It also speaks twice of the sun being stopped once for Ahaz and once for Joshua in Joshua 10:3 the sun and the moon stopped until the battle was over. Are you saying the bible is wrong there that he stopped the earth , if it’s wrong there it could also be wrong in other places.

No. The bible is correct, your interpretation is wrong. To stop the sun was a miraculous event. God would have to hold a lot of stuff together, the whole universe, if He didn’t stop the earth rotating. It would be easiest for Him to stop the globe rotating for the prescribed period. He would still have to hold together a lot of stuff on the earth.

//When Jesus returns “all eyes will see him” how can that happen on a globe? Only those who he will be directly above would be able to see him, those on the opposite side of a globe wouldn’t see anything.//

Yes, “even those who pierced Him”. That includes those in hell. Flat earth doesn’t help.

//You also mentioned an athiest being an expert Eric Dubay, yes he’s knowledgeable but check out Rob Skiba a follower of the Way expert who recently past away in the prime of his life and of unusual circumstances (he knew too much).//

Conspiracy theory. Evidence from no evidence. Pure conjecture, without facts.

//Many experiments have been done by many people that prove no curve. //

Really? More YouTubers making unscientific truth claims. Besides what about the insurmountable evidence by many pilots and other space agencies? Is all their evidence to be ignored?

//The globalists have an agenda and I for one will have no part of it.//

Could it be that the FE nonsense is a globalist deception to make Christians seem foolish? It surely is a major psyop.

About the Moon landing hoax, I think it’s very unfair to include that with Flat Earth proponents for several reasons:

Flat Earthers deny accepted science. People who question NASA’s 1969 technology to put a man on the moon embrace accepted science! They base their reasoning on science. The great American patriot and former Naval intelligence officer, William Cooper, lists, in my opinion, valid reasons based on science why the Apollo missions never went as far as the moon. I have yet to hear any scientist refute his reasoning satisfactorily. He also lists occultic Illuminati symbolism involved in the Apollo missions! Please see: https://www.jamesjpn.net/conspiracy/william-coopers-reasons-why-he-believes-the-moon-walk-was-faked/

People who question Apollo’s narrative on the Apollo missions are in the same category as people who question the American government’s narrative about any controversial subject. Is it a “Satanic deception” to question the government? When I was a kid, I was so naive would never believe my American government would lie to me about anything. Since then, I now question the government’s narrative about:

The JFK assassination.
The reasons for the Vietnam war.
The destruction of the World Trade Center
The reasons for the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq
The Waco massacre
The Oklahoma City bombing
The USS Liberty attack by the Israeli Air Force
The Covid pandemic
The 2020 presidential elections. Many still believe it was rigged.

This list is far from complete! There are many many more things the American government has said that people question.

Another point: People who believe the Moonwalk was a hoax are not part of a cult like the Flat-Earthers. I don’t mind if you disagree with me about it. I just want to point out to you that there are valid reasons why people question the government’s narrative on this subject. William Cooper and Bart Sibrel in his documentary “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon” give some convincing reasons in my opinion.

The entire world lies in deception because of sin. God’s people in Christ Jesus should question everything the world offers us.

Psalms 146:3  Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

Like

James,

I also question the political cover ups of many of those items you list but the science that you object to on space flight and moon missions is a strawman. With the greatest of respect, I would ask you to not quote such blatant errors to basic physics.

What you have copied from that hourofthetime[.com] website in regards to radiation, radiant transmission, temperature of space, thermal equilibration of space suits etc etc is nonsense. Just about every claim is false, based on Newtonian physics and Thermodynamics which has been well understood for at least 100 years.

Years ago (2015) I posted an article on creation.com “Apollo moon landing hoax and the ‘Face on Mars’” https://biblescienceforum.com/2015/08/25/apollo-moon-landing-hoax-and-the-face-on-mars

In the comments on that article I wrote the following in 2015.

I received several comments on this article on creation.com site where some dispute that humans could survive both travel through the Van Allen Radiation belts and in the lunar surface, due to several websites claiming it would be impossible. Here I repeat some of my responses.

Van Allen Radiation belts absorb the energy of the fast moving particles from the sun. They are actually a design feature and help protect the earth environment from these particles. Here is a good summary about them including a nice graphic showing their location. Astronauts leaving the earth environment spend little time in these belts and would minimize exposure.

The principle danger of the Van Allen belts is high-energy protons, which are not that difficult to shield against. And the Apollo navigators plotted a course through the thinnest parts of the belts and arranged for the spacecraft to pass through them quickly, limiting the exposure. But each astronaut wore a personal dosimeter. The accumulated dose for each astronaut was regularly reported to Mission Control over the radio.

Regarding that issue:

“The recent Fox TV show, which I saw, is an ingenious and entertaining assemblage of nonsense. The claim that radiation exposure during the Apollo missions would have been fatal to the astronauts is only one example of such nonsense.” — Dr. James Van Allen quoted here.

That link goes into much more detail.

On the moon and while travelling between the earth and the moon I believe solar flares are a far more dangerous issue for astronauts. On January 20, 2005 a major solar flare hit the moon. If astronauts had been there then they would have been exposed and would have experienced radiation sickness. That solar storm was very significant. More here. But that is a NASA website and the conspiracy theorists will just say it is all part of the cover-up.

William Cooper’s arguments of why man could not have gone to the moon are contrary to known physics. He speaks of the problem of the astronauts suits not being able to keep them cool enough on the moon because their space suit air-conditioning system could not work there. But their suits are designed to equalise the cold side and the hot side of their bodies. The moon has no atmosphere and as a result there is no convection and no gases to absorb the radiated energy from the ground. Hence the shadow side and the sun side of anything will have an enormous temperature difference. Cooper has forgotten all about radiative heat transfer. On the moon, on the shadow side the temperature is about -150° C, though on the sun side it is about 130° C. I would think the astronauts would need to use heaters rather than air-conditioners.

The Mythbusters took on many of the alleged ‘proofs’ of the alleged hoaxed moon landings. See Mythbusters Moon Landing Hoax 1 for example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4PsvXiX4ao

As I mentioned in my 2015 article NASA pointed their Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter (LRO) at the lunar landing landing sites because of these claims. To say that those footprints are fake you have to involve a lot of people in the cover-up. The astronauts left angled optical reflectors (corner cubes) on the moon, which Earth-based labs use to bounce laser beams off and measure the distance to the moon with exquisite precision and accuracy. If they did NOT place them there, who did? More conspiracy cover-ups. It never ends. The absence of evidence becomes evidence for the conspiracy itself.

You cannot know for sure that humans have not walked on the moon. Don’t forget that this is historical science, and we have no access to directly observe a past event, so we can only look for evidence consistent with those past landings on the moon, and it is there in abundance. In fact, you only believe that humans didn’t because you take authority from some other person (or website) who has told you. And you believe that so-called hoax (if you do) against many observational facts, which include images of footprints, blast patterns and stuff left behind from lunar missions.
