The whole world is deceived, according to the Bible. “Satan deceives the whole world” (Rev. 12:9). Satan not only deceives individuals, but has deceived whole nations (Rev. 20:3). Consequently, leaning on this world system in any way for guidance, truth, or sustenance is futile and dangerous.
So, what are we to do? We must examine ourselves in the light of the written word to see if we are really in the true faith of God. We must “purge out the old leaven,” getting rid of old worldly concepts and ideas that Satan has used to deceive the people and nations of the world.
Since the world and its nations are deceived, we can look at what they support and see what is suspect and needs to be gotten rid of. For example, look at our holidays. The world system supports Halloween among others, and all are blatantly pagan ( www.1911encyclopedia.org/Hallowe’en ).
You can have Hallowe’en in schools and yet your children cannot pray there. You cannot teach creationism or intelligent design and yet, children are encouraged to celebrate Valentine’s Day, which was a Roman fertility and purification festival held on the very same day, February 14 ( “february.” Webster’s Revised Unabridged Dictionary. MICRA, Inc. 02 Jul. 2008. <Dictionary.com http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/february> ).
Our government is deceived and corrupt. It has left its first love-its Creator. The original settlers, the Pilgrims, came here to “establish the kingdom of God nation in the earth.” Now our government has become the servant of a cartel of rich international bankers.
Our Congress in 1913 created by law the Federal Reserve System. It is not “federal” nor a reserve. Its very name is a lie. Nor is it “of the people, by the people, or for the people.” “The Fed” is a private corporation with around 300 shareholders from the richest families of America. It creates money out of nothing but wood fibers and ink. Then it lends these created dollars.
Our government borrows trillions of these dollars and then it takes our hard-earned money as taxes just to pay the interest on that debt! And who gets those billions? The shareholders of the private corporation, the Federal Reserve Bank.
Because “the borrower is servant to the lender,” the U.S. government, as well as all governments, is a servant to the rich international bankers, who are running things on the world stage. The presidents, premiers, prime ministers, congresses, and parliaments of this world are the lap dogs of these internationalists.
And we the sheeple of this deceived world, drunk on our own self-importance, are being led down the shopping aisles, tempted to get more, buy more, and covet more material things–things that satiate our fleshly senses so that we cannot perceive what is killing us.
The old serpent, the Devil, has definitely deceived the whole world. The people are deceived because they don’t know what is going on. And the nations are deceived because the leaders actually think they are going to get by with going to bed with the rich bankers.
But a few will see through the lies and sin of this world system, and they will “come out” from it, and they will be separate. They will be the vanguard of Yahweh’s Kingdom that’s coming soon. Kenneth Wayne Hancock
