WARNING: The Danger of the Continual Rejection of God’s Salvation!!!
The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs and wonders, and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved. For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, so that all will be condemned---those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness.--------2Thessalonians 2:9-12
There are a couple of things that I need to explain. The ‘lawless one’ is the antichrist and the Apostle Paul is talking about the time during the Tribulation when the ‘lawless one’ will be revealed. This takes place during the first part of the Tribulation period.
It is a time when Satan is at his apex with his working of all kinds of FALSE miracles, signs, and wonders, and every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. Paul is talking about those who have crossed God’s deadline for SALVATION, those who have CONTINUED living in their sins, and have time and time again REJECTED God’s invitation to be saved.
Those who have survived the effects of the RAPTURE of God’s Children from this earth, and have entered into the TRIBULATION period still clinging to their sinful nature, with NO desire whatsoever to be saved. They are the ones that the Spirit of God has dealt with time after time and they have hardened their hearts to Him, so He has REMOVED His Spirit from them and they have crossed His deadline. Their opportunity to be saved, even during the Tribulation time, has been taken away.
There will be an opportunity for the unbeliever to come to SALVATION during the Tribulation period, but it will NOT be an easy thing to do. (Rev. 20:4). They will be beheaded because of their FAITH. However those who have rejected FAITH in Christ and have crossed God’s deadline will PERISH.
Paul says that: “For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so they will believe what is false,” in other words, He will let them continue to believe in the FALSE doctrine of the antichrist and they WILL be condemned to an ETERNITY in the place of torment, pain, misery, heartache, and despair---Hell, with no way of escape.
Is this going to be your demise? Have you had opportunity after opportunity to ACCEPT God’s gift of SALVATION, but have REJECTED it time and again. You have another opportunity to ACCEPT His SALVATION, NOW by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and don’t risk crossing His deadline. Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
