Some Tricks of the soon to come Antichrist--Satan himself

I recieved the following as a private E-Mail, but since the answer contains some thoughts which may be of interest to the group--here it is, without of course revealing the person.

>>> have wondered long and hard about the deception in the

coming days that except those days should be shortened that even the elect

could be deceived. I also notice that there is no slowing down of

mainstream churches pushing the rapture theory. Could Antichrist (Satan)

have the power to physically move/relocate to another physical location or

dimension flesh bodies? Most of my family do believe in a pre-trib rapture,

and if suddenly they were all made to disappear, the psychological forces to

my mind in believing that I was mistaken in my beliefs would be hard to

overcome, especially over time. I do believe that the pre-trib rapture is

not taught anywhere in the Bible, but if such an event could appear to have

taken place.....well, you see what I mean. Your thoughts would be appreciated.>>>

YaShua warned specifically that Satan WOULD exhibit "signs and wonders to decieve" IF IT WERE POSSIBLE, even the very elect. (Matt 24 and Mk 13). One thing we know about this statement (and which makes it impossible to be decieved), is that the first jesus is not our Jesus. Other than that fact, in Rev 13 one of the miracles is "bringing down fire from heaven". In 2 Cor 11, Paul says Satan comes disguised as an 'angel of light'. There are surely many more "miracles" slewfoot can show. Lets play "what if."

Since Satan is coming as the substitute messiah, we should be reasonably confident he will fulfill that role (as messiah). I feel we can be fairly well assured he will model his "miracles" after the ones YaShua recorded in the gospels. Thus,

1) He will be a savior for all who will come to him. This means that, A)) there must be some event or occurance going on which flesh people will need to be protected or saved FROM, and B)), he must have the ability to physically perform the act of "saving" (the flesh).

Jesus multiplied bread, changed water into wine, healed the sick, forgave sinners, taught against false teachers, cast out the moneychangers, materialized his body thru doors and walls, caused Peter to be transported from Jerusalem to Gaza in an instant, and raised the dead.

Satan must be able to make it appear he can do all these, as a minimum.

Re raising the dead-- Of course satan cannot GIVE life, but he can sure hold back death. Read and think about Heb 2:14. Jesus came to destroy him who has the POWER OF DEATH, the devil. What is this "power of death"? Is it not the ability to

claim or not to claim the (flesh) death state? Hence, just as he did with Job, satan has the power to withhold death. (see Job 2:7 and 3:7). Job, as you know, is the story of God's elect. If you want to get a pretty good idea of what the elect will go thru in the hands of slewfoot, read this book carefully. Think about the fourth “friend” who appeared. Anyway, witholding death for some person who has a terminal disease will give the appearance of healing, will it not? This thought makes a lot more sense if you follow the beliefs of the churchies who "just know" jesus will do away with death. After all, if jesus is here, no one will die--he gives eternal life, right?

If you have a hard time with people disappearing, as you say, you will surely crash when Satan saves the dying.

If these thoughts give you pause, take eternal comfort in the Word of our YaShua.

"Not a hair of your head will perish". Regards the members of your family which believe in the rapture, recall also YaShua said "you will be betrayed by all men, including your own family".

God Bless you my friend, but place your hand in His. He will never let you down.

In a message dated 96-12-01 23:00:16 EST, you write:

<< I've always been able to rely on the phrase, "If you can still pinch yourself, and it hurts...then the true Jesus isn't here yet." But I assume satan know's that phrase also...so, I wonder if he might be allowed to cause our bodies to become numb to pain and to feel much lighter...(from drugs of some sort?)

>>

This could very well be, Lisa, and it might mean trouble for some. I had been wondering about similar things myself, and about 18 months ago, I kinda did a little more study on the subject. The Elect are Satan's ONLY targets, and he probably has some exquisite designs especially for us, including all you have mentioned and much more.

I have come to the conclusion that I have been "too smart" for my own britches, as the saying goes, and had fallen into the Ephesus trap of "leaving my first love".

That is, I thought I was too cool in the Word for satan to fool. Well, I am a fool.

The "pinch it" phrase is certainly true, but is not sufficient for the Elect.

The ONLY way to get thru this is to cast all your cares on Yashua. Begin by reading 1 Jn 2:18-29. Then, with the knowledge that we were with Him in the first age, read St John, 16th chapter. Dwell and think on verses 6, 7,15,16, 26 and 27. Re the promise of the Holy Spirit, recall Acts chapter 2:17-21 (an example) and Joel 2:28-31. Wait for the refreshing to occur. For inner strength, read Ps 74, beginning at V8. Then read the short Ps 125. See Zech 10:6-12, and Jeremiah 31:31-34 and 32:40. In fact all of Jer 31 and 32 have more of the promise.

I am not gonna go looking for Satan. I dont have to as he will find me. Believe me, he knows us personally. From a long time ago. He can recall it all. I can recall nothing. The blessing we have, Lisa, is that we don't have to recall. Our YaShua's Holy Spirit will tell all of us when and what we need to know at that time.

Remember YaShua said IF it were possible. If we lean on Him, it is not possible for us to be decieved. I almost forgot to lean, because I thought it possible to know Satan's tricks. It isn't, I don't. YaShua does. We can be nothing without Him. If you feel doubts in that time, tell it to YaShua. He has promised to be there for us.

In fact, I posted the 'satan's miracles' thing just to elicit some reaction from you guys. Several have responded. Too many have not. I will post others.

In a message was written:

>>I, too, think that satan will be able to do some "miracles" but I also think he will be the ultimate master of illusion! Remember, it doesn't make any difference whether his miracle is real or not, but only that people BELIEVE it is.>>>

I wholeheartedly agree with your "miracles" analysis. The point I was trying to make and you seemed to concur with is that ac does not have to do much other than come into this dimension to get 99&44/100 of the people on earth into his camp. A few well placed "miracles" such as you mentioned will get all the rest save 7000.

The point I was trying to make is that I feel ac does not care a whit about fooling the sheeple. He wants the Elect. ONLY the Elect. The sheeple are all protected with blindness anyway. They will get their chance in spite of ac. He can read, and he knows that well.

To get to the elect, he must be preparing well to face them, for face them he must. As I mentioned in previous posts, it IS well written at least as a type, what satan will try to do to the ELECT. It is written in the book of Job. This entire book is virtually a blueprint for us. We all should be familiar with the story. Ask yourself very seriously if you would have Job's patience if presented with his situation. Even tho Job overcame, he still got a pretty good chewing out from Father, because he began to question and place his own righteousness above others, especially the 3 "churchie friends". There was one of the “friends” that was different.

(See the study "Job--The Elect" in the Essays section)

"The REST of the story" is that many accept that Job had to argue with only 3 so-called "churchie friends". The fact is, Job's approach to these 3 was in Father's will up until the time he began to brag about his own righteousness, and raise himself above others. Most have missed the fact that Father allowed Job a different messenger, in the form of a warning from the fourth speaker, Elihu. This Elihu was an eloquent spokesman. Read for yourself the 'knowledge' he brought forth, beginning in chapter 32, and continuing until Father speaks in Chapter 38. Elihu's speech is, unlike the 3 "churchies", ALMOST completely in agreement with Father's will, as written. (there are actually many statements that are totally false-- see if you can spot them)  Even the name "ELIHU" means, literally, "He is God" !! Job certainly listened to Elihu's speech.  Would he have answered?  We dont know, for that is precisely when when Father spoke to Job "out of a whirlwind". Had to get his attention. Chewed him out pretty good. The 3 "churchies" got condemned, but not a word about Elihu. Strange?? Have you noticed this before?? No? Then go back and re-read it. Don't miss Job 40:14. It is this verse which is key to Rev 13:16. It is our works. Finally read 42:7. Do you understand? Elihu in the account of Job is none other than SATAN himself, beloved. He was the young man, younger than the rest, and came on with flowering words. He was the final tempter of Job, and will be the final tempter of all the Elect. Before Job got a chance to answer Elihu, guess who spoke for him?  The Holy Spirit of our Father.

This tells me there is only ONE way we can overcome.

I have come to the conclusion that I have been "too smart" for my own britches, as the saying goes, and had fallen into the Ephesus trap of "leaving my first love".

That is, I thought I was too cool in the Word for Satan to fool. Well, I have been a fool.

The "pinch it" phrase is certainly true, but it will almost certainly NOT be sufficient for the Elect. In short-- don't speak--pray.  This time is not a time for overconfidence in our knowledge. As Paul said

in 1 Cor 4:4, I know nothing as yet.

The ONLY way to get thru this is to cast all your cares on Yashua. I began by reading 1 Jn 2:18-29. Then, with the knowledge that we were with Him in the first age, read St John, 16thchapter. Dwell and think on verses 6, 7,15,16, 26 and 27. Re the promise of the Holy Spirit,recall Acts chapter 2:17-21 (an example) and Joel 2:28-31. Wait for the refreshing to occur.

For inner strength, I read Ps 74, especially V8 to the end. Then I read the short Ps 125. See Zech 10:6-12, and Jeremiah 31:31-34 and 32:40. In fact all of Jer 31 and 32 have more of the promise.

I am not gonna go looking for Satan. I dont have to as he will find me. Believe me, he knows me, and all of us  personally. From a long time ago.  He can recall it all. I can recall nothing. The blessing we have is that we don't have to recall. Our YaShua's Holy Spirit will tell all of us when and what we need to know at that time.

Remember YaShua said IF it were possible. If we lean on Him, it is not possible for us to be decieved. I almost forgot to lean, because I thought it possible to know Satan's tricks. I don't. It isn't.  He is a scripture lawyer. He learned to play God by watching.

YaShua does know. We can be nothing without Him. He has promised to be there for us.

<< Don't forget, he knows that we know who he is and what he's all about so he'll pull out all the stops to get us to fall to him. >>>

Not only that, but he knows us PERSONALLY. He will find us. You bet. Re: "whether we know what he's all about" or not, I can only speak for myself. I don't know what he's all about, for sure, but I will place my flesh and spirit in YaShua's hand. I'm sure we all will. I'll sure be glad when this is over. Hang on, payday is coming.

YaShua Bless
