(34) ... Last Days "Deception" - "Deception" ... Satan's Greatest Weapon

In this article, I am addressing the issue of Dreams, Visions and Supernatural experiences.

One of the very powerful avenues that Satan and his army of Deceivers use on individuals is that of Deceptive Dreams and Deceptive Visions.

We are told in the Scriptures of the Bible that we are to test the Spirits. The purpose of testing the Spirits is so that Born-again Believers in Christ do not become Deceived and influenced by another individual's experience or by their own experience without first putting it to the test of God's Scriptural truths.

How do Born-again Believers in Christ test the Spirits?  The answer is that Born-again Believers in Christ MUST KNOW Scriptural truths that are in the Bible..

Many Christians are being deceived by another individual's Supernatural experience which did not come from the Lord, but came from a  Deceiving Spirit. 

Many Christians refuse to believe that the Lord would ever allow them to be Deceived by a Deceiving Spirit. If that is the case, then why does The Lord warn us in the Scriptures of the Bible about being Deceived?

We are told in the Bible that Deception in the End Times will be great. Deceptive Dreams, Deceptive Visions and Deceptive Supernatural experiences have been on the rise in these Last Days. 

We are told in the Bible that one of the hallmarks of the End Times is that Deception will increase. In my many years as a Christian, I have noticed a great increase in Deception by Deceiving Spirits.

I could give a number of examples, but in this article, I will give 2 examples.

Recently, I was reading an article about a Muslim who was taking a pilgrimage to Mecca to pay homage to the Kabba and to fulfill the  requirements in Islam. One night on his pilgrimage, he said that JESUS appeared to him in a Dream and touched him above his heart and said "you have been saved, follow me. You belong to me."

There are a couple of things that really stands out to me about this Dream.

(1st) Just think about this, would it not be quite unfair for JESUS to only single out one individual (rather than all of humanity) and appear to them in a Dream and touch them and then proclaim to them that they are now saved as HE did to this Muslim?

(2nd) There is absolutely  NO PLACE  in the Bible that teaches this type of Salvation.

Another article that I came across was an article about a Supernatural experience that Arthur Blessit experienced. Arthur Blessitt is well known for carrying a 12 foot cross around the world to every Nation. Mr. Blessitt shares the story of an experience that he had one night at Lake Tahoe. He states that one night, he and a friend saw JESUS standing on the waters of Lake Tahoe. Then JESUS began walking towards them on the water. Mr. Blessitt goes on to share his Spiritual experience that night at Lake Tahoe.

I do not know of anyone who enjoys being Spiritual deceived or takes pride of having been Spiritually deceived.

When an individual experiences a Spiritual Dream, a Spiritual Vision or some type of Supernatural experience, it has a profound impact upon them. Always these experiences need to be Scripturally tested to see if they line up with Scriptural truths in the Bible. 

Unfortunately, most individuals who have been Spiritually Deceived by a Dream, a Vision or some type of Supernatural experience, even when being presented with Scriptural proof from the Bible that their Spiritual experience was not from the Lord, but was from a Deceiving Spirit, they will still refuse to believe and accept the fact that they have been Deceived by a Deceiving Spirit.

Below is a copy of a letter that I sent to Mr. Blessitt. I took the courtesy of informing Mr. Blessitt that I have written an article which contains a copy of the letter that I sent to him and have posted it on my website.  

Letter to Mr. Blessitt 

Mr. Blessitt,

Recently, I read your article about your experience a number of years ago at Lake Tahoe. You stated that at the beginning of your encounter with being in the physical visual presence of JESUS, that you first experienced the most awful feeling of sin, guilt, uncleanliness, vileness, filthiness, and of feeling vulgar and dirty

The Bible makes it clear that all those WHO ARE IN CHRIST would never experience the feelings of condemnation that you said you experienced being in the presence of JESUS, not even for one second.

Also, when the Apostle Paul had his encounter with JESUS, the "light" that "radiated" from JESUS was "SO BRIGHT" that it "BLINDED" Paul.

When JESUS was Resurrected, HE was still in His earthly natural body. In the Book of Acts we are told that JESUS spent the next 40 days speaking about the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God to the Apostles whom HE had chosen earlier before His Crucifixtion. 

After this, JESUS then Ascended on High. It was at this point that JESUS received  His Glorified body and no longer had an earthly body.

The result of the Glorification of JESUS has produced a radiance of light of such brilliance from His Being, that it would cause blindness to any mortal being who would have a physical visual encounter with JESUS CHRIST here on Earth. In fact, this is the reason why that JESUS spent time with His chosen Apostles in His natural earthly body before His Ascension.

If JESUS had been in His Glorified body, the Disciples would have not been able to endure the power and radiance that produces light of such brilliance which flows from JESUS.

You stated that the garment of JESUS was so immaculate and pure that it looked more like silver than white. However, the Bible tells us that JESUS is clothed in a garment that is "WHITE AS SNOW ."

Also, on the road to Damascus when the Apostle Paul had his encounter with JESUS, we are told that the light shined from Heaven. JESUS did not leave heaven to have His encounter with the Apostle Paul.

In the Book of Acts we are told that JESUS must remain in heaven "until" the time of Restitution of all things. JESUS has not been leaving Heaven from time to time to come down here on Earth. The next time that JESUS will be leaving Heaven will be at the time of Restitution of all things. 

What you saw and experienced was not a physical visual encounter with JESUS CHRIST, but it was clearly a physical visual encounter with a DECEIVING SPIRIT.

The Bible clearly warns us about how deceptive that Deceiving Spirits are. We are to always use Scriptural truth from the Bible to test doctrines and Spirits, regardless of how genuine a Spiritual experience may seem. The Lord has given us a safety mechanism to know the truth by giving us Scriptural truths in the Bible..

We are living in a time where it has become quite ALARMING at the Lack of Discernment that is taking place in the Body of Christ. 

In Christ,
Alan Finch
