9. Even him whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10. And with all deceivableness 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: SIDE NOTE[I found it interesting that the word delusion has 2 Greek #s associated with it. First is G1756 efficiency ("energy"):-operation, strong, (effectual) working. In addition, 2nd Thessalonians 2:9 in the 1st verse I noted above, the word working, in the 'even him whose coming is after the WORKING of Satan, with all power and signs and lying wonders'. The use of working here shows energy. I suppose I just think it is interesting because the new age religion seems to use that type of 'energy' often in their speaking about what they are receiving or tapping into or channeling into. If you are currently in this type of thing I would beg you to call upon Jesus Christ and ask Him to reveal the TRUTH clearly to you and seek only Jesus Christ with your whole heart and soul and mind. Don't stay in your thinking that Jesus is simply one of many assended masters. I don't know a lot about the new age nor do I need to know anything more than what little I have learned. Madame Blavatsky along with Alice Bailey are two of the deceived that have started many down this false path. It is evil and teachings I would say not to simply turn from but RUN from.]
Sorry about the rabbit trail. Back on track...
2 Thessalonians 2:12
12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2nd Corinthians 11:14
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed [G3326 is transfigure or disguise; transform oneself],into an angel of light.
We are living in strange times and I and many others believe we are fast approaching the end of life as we know it. For those who believe and know the truth. Salvation only comes by one way. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
As you watch the video: I am praying that all will come to the knowledge of the TRUTH. These entities are not your friends and not here to help and are simply demonic tools of Satan. Our ONLY salvation comes thru Jesus Christ! Seek Him before it is too late. Amen

Where are we on the time-line. What’s coming?
News and the scriptures. Encourage one another in these days of chaos.
Praise the One true God!
Dear Jesus, we come before You and praise Your Holy name! The name above all names! We thank You and You alone for everything, even the thinks we may not understand completely right now. BUT, we love You, we trust You, and we exalt your mighty name. Jesus we ask You to watch over all of our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus all over the world and yes, in Iran and Iraq and China and N Korea. Not just these but in all nations across this world. Dear Father in heaven, we pray that You would watch over our military, our sons and daughters, our mothers and fathers, our nieces and nephews. Our friends and neighbors. Watch over them as they are under attack. We ask that You would give them and our president and each of us Godly wisdom. War is not good or what we want. Sometimes it might be necessary. I trust You and You alone.
In the name above all names, I ask these things, thank You Jesus. Amen
What are we thinking?
As the darkness closes in on Christians it becomes more apparent we must walk in the light. Be filled with the Holy Spirit!
1 Peter 2:9-10 KJV
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
 Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.
I know that I can’t be alone in my saddness of watching what is happening around me at an unbelievable speed. Daily I am shocked and then I immediately tell myself that nothing shocks me anymore yet it still does. It makes my stomach knot up and I simply don’t even know what to say. “Keep looking up!”
Praise the Lord God Almighty! Be strong in the Lord!
Thank you Pastor JD Farag!
In the event you only have time for the message you can jump to about the 30 minute mark.
Pastor JD Farag -thank you
If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not. Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.
Today, consider vs. 39-40. Jesus is speaking to the religious leaders of the time – the ones who have memorized scripture. You can study scripture all of your life and still not come to Jesus. Knowing God comes to you through relationship with Jesus Christ. You can know about God without knowing God yourself. These scholars of scripture are waiting for a foretold savior’s arrival, yet they do not recognize that Christ is that savior…that Messiah. Christ alone is the living Word of God that sets us all free from the law of sin and death.
