Please read Philippians 1:27-28
In Phlippians 1:27 Paul admonished the believers to conduct themselves in a manner worthy of the Good News, and to stand together as one for the faith. He longed to visit the brothers in Corinth just as we long to see each other when it’s been a while. But Paul’s main concern was to hear that they were standing as one in spirit and as one mind in the faith.
In Philippians 1:28 the Holy Spirit said through the apostle Paul that in no way should we be terrified by those who oppose us. This serves as a sign to them of their impending destruction. And it’s a sign for us that we will be saved by God. This is also conducting ourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News. Courage is the ability to disregard fear. Having courage doesn’t mean we never experience fear. It means we have the God given ability to pay no attention to it, and discard it. (1 Corinthians 16:13 Philippians 1:20) When we fear the Lord and not men God uses our courage in remarkable ways. This is his will.

God says fear of man is a trap. Who wants to be captured unawares in a snare like an animal? No one. But that’s what happens when we fear men instead of God. Our Father doesn’t want this for his children. Jesus came to set us free. (John 8:31-32 36) Let’s boldly follow his teachings. He promises to be with us to the very end. (Matthew 28:18-20)

Jesus commands us not to be afraid of those who can kill the body but can do nothing to the real you and me: our soul. Our bodies are temporary earthly tents. We long for an eternal house in heaven. (2 Corinthians 5:1-5) If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground apart from our Father’s will, what about you and I who are worth more than many sparrows? (Psalm 145:20) Encourage each other with these words.

The Bible says there is a great falsehood that the whole world will believe. And everyone who believes it will be damned. God sends the people of the world a powerful delusion so that they will believe this lie, because they did not love the truth. Basically, people have been lying so much that God hands them over to believe this great damnable lie to their eternal destruction. Wow!
There are many speculations as to what this great falsehood is. But one thing we know for sure is that the whole world will be fooled by it. God’s children on the other hand will not be.
God’s children love the truth. So God won’t send them a strong delusion so as to be fooled. But rather a spirit of revelation and discernment. Those who love the truth will be protected by God to the end. But lovers of lies will reap what they have have sown by being drawn into believing a falsehood so great that it will damn their souls forever. If they had only loved the truth instead of wickedness.
This lie comes from a lawless one or a very wicked entity that has no respect for morals or laws. This one comes by the power of Satan with all kinds of lying wonders, deceiving signs, and miracles. Whoever this is they can do some pretty powerful stuff. Yet all of these false miracles are mere hocus-pocus. This entity has the backing of Satan who’s m.o. is stated in 2 Corinthians 11:14-15

According to the scriptures in 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 some entity will do exactly what it’s master Satan does; pretend to be doing good for humanity (‘masquerading as servants of righteousness’), while killing the world at the same time with a horrendous lie. What entity on earth could possibly have the power to do such a thing? Who could make the entire world believe a damnable lie? And what is this lie that he can get everyone on earth to believe? That would really be a feat; getting everybody on one accord. Hmmmmm.
All I can say is this: when you see the whole world believing in something be skeptical. Do your own research. Don’t believe a thing just because it’s popular, and watch out for so-called cures for humanity. This is the the same type of lie Satan used in the Garden of Eden on Adam and Eve that killed them and infected the human race. The Devil told them they would not die if they did what God had forbidden them to do. But they did die. Some entity (with the full backing of Satan) will do the exact same thing in these last days. Some think the great deception is a coming event. Others think it is happening right now even as we speak! Let’s pray to God concerning this so that we won’t be swept away with the world for believing a damnable lie, that keeps us from the truth that could save us.
