The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
--2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
In the 1960s, I remember hearing the Fifth Dimension sing and ask the question, “Is this the dawning of the Age of Aquarius?” The Aquarians believe that we have now completed the age of Pisces, and that we have moved past Christianity and have been liberated to a new age where our final enlightenment will come. This is just one source of the New Age movement. The ultimate source is Satan.
Second Timothy 3:1-4 says, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come; for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”
These clear warnings from the Word of God just go to show that the New Age philosophy is not really new at all. Today, all kinds of lies are being spread about God. Beware of the characteristics of this movement that says all is one, everything is god, you will never die but go through reincarnation, you can change your consciousness, all religions are true and therefore all religions are one, and a new world is coming—cosmic evolutionary optimism.
What is needed now among Christians more than ever is discernment. You and I must know God’s Word, understand His wisdom revealed in Scripture, and share the message of God’s TRUTH with the world. The
IN THE LAST DAYS, THERE WILL BE A STRONG DELUSION SO THAT PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE ALL KINDS OF LIES. DETERMINE TO LIVE YOUR LIFE COMPLETELY SOLD OUT TO JESUS CHRIST, SO THAT OTHERS MAY SEE THE TRUTH.
