From the time we started Diffusion of the Delusion Radio I have talked about a lot of things. It may have been something that was in the news, a weather event or something that was just the right time to talk about. As we move forward with future episodes, it is my hope that all these puzzle pieces fall into place. I was in construction for a good portion of my life until my body could no longer continue in that line of work. I oversaw a crew of ten to fifteen men. After several weeks on a job, the men would always start to complain that I had them all over the place. I had them work in one area for a few days and then would move them onto some other area of the project. They complained because they could not see the big picture. They were focused on the many smaller pieces. I would always encourage them to be patient. I would say something like,"I pay you by the hour, so if something goes wrong...that's on my head and not yours". After months of work on the project, the day would always finally come when the big crane would show up. At the end of the day, the men would always be in awe at how quickly the whole picture came together as the smaller pieces were assembled. I do the episodes of Diffusion of the Delusion much the same way. I have studied God's Word intensely for years and prayed for the council of the Holy Spirit to guide me and help me hear and understand what the Word was saying to me. The time came when I started to see things happening on earth that are recorded in God's Word. Future events are recorded in the Bible. Today, for instance, there was a terrorist attack in Brussels. The date is 3-22-2016. That is a very important date to the enemies of Jesus. It is a date that I have spoken about and pointed out many times over the past year or so. Tonight, God willing, I will discuss this in greater detail. Let's just say it like this; "After all the work on the little parts of the project and following the blueprint that we are given by our Heavenly Father, the spiritual crane is scheduled to arrive tonight to start hoisting all the pieces into place, starting with March 22,2016 or 32216.
Tune in @ 8 pm/cst. to listen live.
15 Then said the prophet Jeremiah unto Hananiah the prophet, Hear now, Hananiah; The Lord hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie.16 Therefore thus saith the Lord; Behold, I will cast thee from off the face of the earth: this year thou shalt die, because thou hast taught rebellion against the Lord.
As many of you may know, my wife and I live on the Gulf Coast of Florida and every year at this time we witness rebellion. Spring Break has arrived and with it thousands of college age kids are showing the whole country exactly what is happening in this generation. Booze driven sexual immorality, drugs, violence, lack of respect...these are just a few things that are going on. How can this be happening in a country founded on Christian principles? the only logical conclusion must be that this country no longer adheres to the standards given to us by the Word of God, Jesus Christ.I remember how it was in the sixties and seventies. Even though there were a lot of things going on in this country that helped lay a foundation for the mess that we are in now, there was still a large number of Christians that tried to stay on the path to righteousness. Oh how far we have fallen in the last forty or so years. How can this be happening in a country where everywhere you turn , there a a church building of some denomination or the other? These things that are happening now in this country wouldn't have been tolerated back when I was a kid. Dad would have taken his belt to my behind until I understood how to act. But today's youth are brazenly rebellious. Where did they learn this kind of morality? Doesn't it stand to reason that this all started with rebellion against God that it will also end in the same rebellion...just as God's Word tells us many times? Instead of writing a long post about this, I have decided, God willing, to do a broadcast on Diffusion of the Delusion Wednesday night @ 8:00 pm/cst. Over the past year, I have done many broadcasts leading up to this one. When I put all the puzzle pieces together, hopefully you will be able to see the big picture. I plan to talk about those who are just like Hananiah. Those who prophesy lies and ignore the lesson that we are given in Jeremiah 28. God has a plan and it is playing out the only way it can...according to HIS will. Tune in to listen live.
North Korea launched a satellite into orbit this past weekend. What if it is carrying a nuclear payload and an explosive device? You have probably heard talk of and EMP event that might collapse the U.S. energy grid. This thought may not be so far fetched considering that the satellite passes directly over the heartland of the U.S. You can track the orbit of KMS-4 here. I have provided below. Many times on Diffusion of the Delusion, I have suggested that Hollywood lets us know what to expect in the future. The movie Red Dawn was released in 2012. in a quote from Wikipedia," An introductory montage shows the fallout of the economic crisis in the European Union and a weakened NATO alliance, amid increasing co-operation between an increasingly militant North Korea and ultranationalist-controlled Russia. The increased deployment of U.S. troops abroad (and the highlighted threat of cyberwarfare) leaves the mainland vulnerable".
In the movie, North Korea brought down the U.S. electrical grid with an Electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapon leading to an invasion using domestic airlines. I am not saying that this is what will happen. I am saying that it is possible. There is no better time to come to Jesus in repentance. Trust HIM and accept HIM as your savior.
I read in a news article today that Iraq is building a wall and a trench to surround Baghdad. It brings to mind Jeremiah 51 which speaks of God's wrath against Babylon. The walls were mentioned in several verses but I want to point out verses 53 and 58. Iraq is building this wall and trench to protect against invasion and minimize check points. In the chapter, Jeremiah states that the Lord will destroy Babylon and it will be desolate forever. That it will sink and not rise from the evil that the Lord will bring upon it. Verse 63 says this... And it shall be, when thou hast made an end of reading this book, that thou shalt bind a stone to it, and cast it into the midst of Euphrates. Things are happening right now in the world that should start to wake up the sleepers really soon. As Jesus told Peter, James and John to stay awake and watch at Gethsemane, the same applies to us today. Don't be as those men were that night when the Lord told them to stay awake and watch. Don't fall asleep. There are way too many things happening right now that we should be watching. God bless.
At the Mt. of Olives, Jesus was alone with four apostles. John, James, Peter and Andrew. Two sets of brothers. We know this from the account of Mark 13. They asked him about the time of his return, what the sign of his coming would be and of the end of the world. The first thing he said to them was "Take heed that no man deceive you". Deception. Our first warning about this season is concerning deception. Paul follows up on this warning in
2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
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:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
That are many deceptive things that are being taught right now. I chose to discuss one of these hoaxes in today's post.
I have witnessed so many people are teaching that the earth is flat. These people quote verses of scripture to prove that they are correct about the flat earth but don't do the research to understand the Hebrew words.
21 Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth?
22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:
The word circle is a translation of the Hebrew word chûwg, Strongs #2329 circle, circuit, compass... a circle, sphere used in the arch or vault of the sky.
In this instance it is only logical to realize that Isaiah is speaking about a sphere. But some may argue that point and insist Isaiah is actually talking about a flat circle. Let's leave all translation aside and just go with pure logic. No scripture, no science, no theory and no doctrine. I say no scripture because so many people evidently pick and choose verses that may back up what they are saying. I say no science because science proves a spherical earth. I say no theory because there is no way for any of these people to absolutely prove the flat earth since they don't go into space to see for themselves. I say no doctrine because trusting doctrines of men is causing this mess in the first place
Do you believe you own eyes? I live on the Gulf coast of Florida. When I walk onto the beach and look out over the ocean, I see the spherical curvature of the globe in the horizon. To me that would be evidence enough but still others will continue to argue the flat earth theory. I want to ask a question...have you ever seen a lunar eclipse? What shape was the shadow on the moon? The shadow is formed when the earth is between the sun and the moon blocking the sun's light, right? It is the same with a solar eclipse. The shape of the shadow is circular but if the earth were truly flat, how would you be able to see a circular shadow cast on the face of the moon? The flat earth surface would have to be facing the moon for it to be visible, right? If that is the case, then why can some people see the eclipse and at the same time some can't? Okay...they may be so far separated that the moon hasn't orbited far enough for everyone to see it. What about if someone in the Southeast United States can see it but not someone in the Northeast? Or perhaps they see only a partial eclipse where they are. The best answer to these questions is because the earth is a sphere that is hanging in the heavens.
He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
A lot of this deception could be avoided if folks would study God's Word to show themselves approved. Perhaps a good place to start would be Genesis 1 that gives the account of HIS separating the waters. I will just keep that to myself and we can call it homework. The answer is easy if you can grasp what that passage really means. If you understand, then you will be able to see though all the deception that is our first indicator of what time it truly is and just how close we are to Jesus' return. There are more important things that the servants of Jesus Christ should be doing right now. Perhaps sharing the Gospel of salvation in Jesus would be a better use of what little time we have.
42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
