What is More Dangerous – Terrorism or Deception?

What is More Dangerous – Terrorism or Deception?
False Teachers, The Real Terrorists of Your Soul - Deception

These are the real terrorists. They are not killing your body. They are killing your soul and smiling all the way to the bank.

Terrorism or Deception – What is More Dangerous?

The recent terrorist attacks in France have once again drawn the world’s attention to the fact that we are living in a very dangerous world. In fact, the understatement of the year would probably be: “Terrorism is on the increase worldwide.”

A recent study shows that the fatalities linked to terrorism are up 60 percent. Alan Cowell of the New York Times reports (18 November 2014).

LONDON — As Western governments grapple with heightened apprehension about the spread of Islamic militancy, an independent study on Tuesday offered little solace, saying the number of fatalities related to terrorism soared 60 percent last year.

Pointing to a geographic imbalance, the report by the nonprofit Institute for Economics and Peace said five countries — Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan and Syria — accounted for four-fifths of the almost 18,000 fatalities attributed to terrorism last year. Iraq had the bloodiest record of all, with more than 6,300 fatalities. . . . [Thomas says: It proves that Islamists are killing more of their own people than anyone else).

“In 2013, terrorist activity increased substantially with the total number of deaths rising from 11,133 in 2012 to 17,958 in 2013, a 61 percent increase,” the report said. “Over the same period, the number of countries that experienced more than 50 deaths rose from 15 to 24. This highlights that not only is the intensity of terrorism increasing, its breadth is increasing as well.”

What could be more dangerous than a few black clad terrorists opening fire on unarmed and innocent civilians and mercilessly killing them, and ISIL Islamists beheading innocent victims as far as they go?

Allow me to remind you what Christ Jesus, the Son of the Living God once said.

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28)

The epistle to the Hebrews reminds us that the most fearful thing mankind faces is to fall into the hands of the Living God. (Hebrews 10:31). Terrorism, the killing and maiming of innocent victims, and the horrific beheadings are not the most despicable thing one human being can do to another.

The most wicked and contemptible thing imaginable is to despise and reject the salvation God offers to all mankind in his Son Jesus Christ and equally despicable is the misrepresentation of his mercy and salvation with an intent to deceive and mislead the masses. These, the false apostles, prophets and teachers, are the real terrorists who – although they are not killing the body – are doing a far more reprehensible thing. They are murdering your soul.

Jude, the brother of Jesus, made no bones about the utter disgraceful and shameful deception perpetrated by those who call themselves prophets, teachers and men and women of God.

Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead [they die physically and then they die eternally in hell] , plucked up by the roots;

Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. (Jude 1:11-13)

No wonder God issues a grave warning to those who lead others astray.

If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. (1 Corinthians 3:17).

Barnes comments as follows on this passage.

If any man defile … – Or, “destroy, corrupt” (φθείρει  phtheirei). The Greek word is the same in both parts of the sentence. “If any man ‘destroy’ the temple of God, God shall ‘destroy’ him.” This is presented in the form of an adage or proverb. And the truth here stated is based on the fact that the temple of God was inviolable. That temple was holy; and if any man subsequently destroyed it, it might be presumed that God would destroy him. The figurative sense is, “If any man by his doctrines or precepts shall pursue such a course as tends to destroy the church, God shall severely punish him.”

Deception and Women

An equally reprehensible thing is that millions of women in particular are giving the false prophets and teachers the go-ahead to murder their souls because they just love it when they are being deceived (2 Timothy 3:5-7; 2 Timothy 4:3), and they can’t wait to attend Joyce Meyer’s 2015 LoveLife Women’s Conference and Bobby Houston’s Hillsong Women’s Colour Conference in 2015.

When Jesus’ disciples asked Him: “Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3), He did not say to them, “Take heed that no terrorist slay or behead you.” He said: “Take heed that no man deceive you.” Here Jesus Himself acknowledged that deception is a far greater danger than terrorism.

Deception and those who brazenly deceive the masses (especially the women folk because they are more susceptible to trickery and deceit [1 Timothy 2:14; 2 Timothy 3:5-7]) is the most dangerous weapon in the hands of Satan. His ploys are exceptionally dangerous because he presents the masses with a Jesus that looks, talks and walks so much like the real Jesus of Nazareth that precious few are able to discern whether Satan’s Jesuses are real or not. No wonder Paul wrote.

And what I am doing I will continue to do, in order to undermine the claim of those who would like to claim that in their boasted mission they work on the same terms as we do.

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.

And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. (2 Corinthians 11:12-15)

I have heard it said on many occasions that Joyce Meyer has won many souls to Jesus. The women who believe this are easily woven tighter into her web of deception. The question is: Who is this Jesus to whom she has led so many women? Some of you may already know this but let’s briefly look at Joyce Meyer’s Jesus again. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4).

  1. He did not accomplish his “Tetelestai” (Paid in Full) on the cross but in hell where he was tortured for three days and three nights by the devil and his angels. The irony is that the devil is not in hell yet and has no desire to be there. (Watch here). Most women are so enamored with Joyce Meyer and her teaching that they refuse to believe that this is Joyce’s voice in the video. They usually say: “That’s not Joyce speaking. It’s someone else.” As soon as you refuse to believe and continually stop your ears to the truth, you are treading on very dangerous ground. Remember Pharaoh who hardened his heart? When he refused to listen and continually hardened his heart, God began to help him to harden his heart even further. (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12).
  2. Joyce Meyer’s Jesus told her that she is not a sinner. Righteousness is not constituted by your own alleged sinlessness. Righteousness – constituted by Jesus Christ’s own sinlessness and perfection – is imputed to everyone who believes on Him and his finished work on the cross. It does not mean that we are now completely sinless (1 John :8-10). Joyce Meyer’s claim that she is sinless is a lie from the pit of hell and a lie by definition is a sin. This proves that Joyce Meyer is still a sinner and will remain a sinner until the day she dies, and even beyond if she does not repent of her evil false teachings.

Brian Houston’s, Rick Warren’s, many other false teachers’ and even high profile politicians’ claim that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jocob and Allah of the Muslims are one and the same God will probably receive greater acceptance in the minds of “Christians” who claim to follow Jesus Christ in the aftermath of the unity rally held in France on 11 January 2015.
