How deception works………
"Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness,
but rather expose them."EPHESIANS 5:11
Some time early last year,the Lord Jesus Christ told me satan knew that many people were repenting because of heaven and hell testimonies and so he sent his agents to flood the earth with alot of fake heaven and hell testimonies that are aimed at discouraging people's walk with God.
Jesus told me these testimonies would include some holiness aspects because they were aimed at destroying the true holiness revelations.
The Lord told me the reason they would include holiness aspects is because satan wants people to completely do away with any holiness revelations.
They will think,since this fake testimony also talked about the need for outward holiness,any testimony talking about outward holiness is also fake.Thats what satan wanted.
It was also meant to trap those who believe in outward holiness as being important.Since the fake revelations also talked about outward holiness,these people who already believed in it wouldn't question such a testimony despite all the lies added.
Let me make it clear that deception isn't 100%lies.
It's some truth mixed with lies.The truth is meant to blind you so you believe even the lies.
These fake revelations from the pit of hell are meant to discourage people from giving heed to what God is really saying.
It's also meant to lead people into believing a lie.
Fake revelations are in two forms.
There are some where even the person sharing the revelation is themselves deceived by a fake vision.
2 TIMOTHY 3:13 "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse,
DECEIVING, and BEING DECEIVED ."
This happens when people have their spiritual eyes open but are not living a holy life,they are entertaining sin in their lives,this opens them to deception by satan.
satan can also do this is to people who don't study the word of God . Because of their ignorance about God's word satan can deceive such people with fake visions or dreams because he knows they won't compare them with what the bible says.
Each revelation must be weighed by the word of God.
When I had my first encounter with Jesus Christ,He showed me a sword and said,"you will conquer the enemy using this sword."
The sword is the word of God.
"Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God."EPHESIANS 6:17
The only way we can know wether something is true or not is by checking with the word of God.
If some of the things are biblical while others are not.Then that revelation isn't from God.A revelation from God will not contradict the bible in any single way.
But when there's truth mixed with lies,know that the truths are meant to make you believe the lies.
It is also important to ask the Holyspirit if something is true or not.But before doing this you must make sure you have the Holyspirit and be willing to listen to anything He says.
The second type of deception is where the person sharing a revelation is aware of what they are doing.When the person is an agent of darkness who has been sent to come and deceive people with a fake revelation.
Such a person is consciously serving satan by sharing such a revelation and the kingdom of darkness have already planed how that revelation should impact the church and what it's meant to achieve.
This type of fake revelations are also very common and satan instructs such people who come with this mission everything they should do.
Many times its extremely hard to tell this type of fake revelations unless we judge them by the word of God and also ask the Holyspirit.
The Lord told me and Zipporah,"Iam going to use you to expose the kingdom of darkness and since that time,Jesus has showed us so much about how the kingdom of darkness operates and how they fulfil their deception.
I am sharing some of the things so that you will not be caught unaware.
Before someone is sent on such a mission,they are prepared for that mission even for years if necessary.They first have to convince the people near them before they can convince the whole world.
For example,such a person can pretend to be a demon possessed person and may manifest in a prayer meeting and pretend that the demons have left.This is why discernment is important.
Once this happens, this person may even begin to dress and act like a child of God just to convince those around them.
They are taught by demons and some are demons in human flesh,demons have been around for centuries and they have studied all the ways of convincing humans that something is true.Thats why I say it's not about how someone looks or sounds,it's about the word of God and also the Holyspirit.
After the person has managed to earn people's trust,they will begin to share the demonic fake visions that satan sent them to share.
Because they had first managed to convince those people around them it ll be easy to convince any other christian who doesn't know the word of God because other People will confirm that they know them and they are children of God.
The only proof we have is the Holyspirit and the word of God.
Mostly their first revelation will be mostly biblical though in some cases may even include a few demonic lies but most of it will be truth.
This is meant to earn people's trust.
When that trust is earned,they will continue coming with other revelations containing some truth but mixed with the lies that satan wants to use to fight the church.
Because of those few truths,the indiscerning christian will believe even the lies and slowly find themselves bound by satan's lies.
They will for example tell you not to paint and use artificial hair or wear trousers if you are a woman,this is the part of truth that they know will convince you.Then they will add the lie that you should not eat pork because if you do you ll go to hell.
COLOSSIANS 2:16 " So don't let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink or for not celebrating certain holy days……"
Or they will say don't wear short things but they will add lies saying don't wear anything made of jeans.That if a woman wears a jean skirt even though it's decent she will go to hell.Or that if a man wears jean trousers though decent they will go to hell.Some will add things like it's a sin to shave or to wear bras etc.
All of this is satan's way of making people think serving God is a prison.
God wants us holy,Not that He wants us miserable and sad.
He wants Holiness.
And satan knows if he brings all these teachings from hell,in the end you ll be discouraged from serving God and could even give up on God all together.
But despite the lie added to these fake revelations,people who don't judge revelations by the bible will believe and even stop eating pork,wearing jeans etc fearing they ll go to hell.satan has achieved his mission of getting them in bondage of lies and he will keep increasing the lies till those people eventually give up on salvation all together or till they go deeper into deception.
Again let me say,the Holyspirit and the bible are our sword to devour the enemy.He has successfully transformed himself in a way that he appears like an angel of light.
Such people will even pretend to be holy.They will even not use artificial things and preach against them.But all this is just saw that they can get to the children of God.
They will creep in demonic doctrines and also instead of encouraging you to have fellowship with God,they will do anything to make God seem distant and unpleasable.Their mission is also to make you think it's impossible to get saved.
That's why am telling you to seek God or you ll be deceived.
The bible says the way leading to heaven is narrow,it doesn't say it's impossible.
Let's follow the word of God n ot demonic doctrines.
Another method of deception that these people use is;When the fake revelator shares their fake revelation.satan sends other people to work with them.
These people will pretend to just be ordinary people and will pretend to have repented because of that revelation.If it's at a meeting they ll even cry and share with others how t he revelation has changed them . online they will comment things like,"Oh thank You Jesus for this warning." But satan sends them to do this so that when other people see this they will say,"this must be true,even other people believe it."
Let me be clear that am not saying wherever this happens I. e people talking about a revelation or commenting then they are agents and that revelation is from satan.
What am saying is,satan has seen how this is effective and so when he sends a fake revealation he does this as one of his deception techniques.
So don't believe a testimony just because of people's comments about it. Check the bible and ask the Holyspirit.
Another way that is used for deception is;after the person has shared their fake revelation.They will tell you."If you want,pray about it."
This is done as a psychological way of deception because they know that that very statement will make the majority of people not to even pray about it.
People will think,"if it was a lie he wouldn't tell us to pray about it so it's true."
But am telling you you should really be praying about ALL revelations and check with the bible.
Again am not saying just cz someone says pray about it then they are doing this trick,even I encourage people to pray about it.What am saying is that agents of satan also say this to blind you.
So never take that statement as proof but rather really go to the Lord in prayer.
Let me emphasise usually there's never physical proof of these agents of darkness as they really come like sheep but are wolves,read the bible and judge everything by the bible.
God is perfect and all His revelations align with His word.
These people will even arrange things in a way that shows as if they are suffering for Christ.
They will even makeup situations in the kingdom of darkness that makes it seem as though they are undergoing persecution,just to validate the lies satan sent them with.So non of this is proof that someone is true.
Each and every word should not contradict God's word.
Another type of deceivers satan sends don't even hide in holiness messages.
Their mission is for those who don't believe in outward holiness as being as important as inward and also to discourage those who believe in outward holiness from believing it.
These will be sent by satan to claim to have seen heaven or hell and met Jesus yet they will be very worldly in their dressing and even actions sometimes.
They will talk about some aspects of holiness such as stealing,adultery but ll dress in a worldly way because they know people will copy and they know that as long as holiness isn't complete,You are still a candidate of hell.
This deception is meant to lure people into the same sin as they will say,"this person saw Jesus and heaven but dresses this way so it's okay.if it wasn't okay Jesus would have told them."
In some cases satan will even instruct these people to say Jesus told them dressing that way is okay.
They lure those who don't know God's word and are just looking for that person who ll validate their sinful act.
Do not follow a person.
Again the only way we can defeat the enemy who comes this way is through the sword of the spirit,the word of God.
These deceivers will also use the deception tactics that I have listed above that are also used by those sent into the holiness ministry with deception.
Again am not saying every person doing this is consciously serving satan.Some are while others have simply been deceived with fake visions because of not standing upon the word of God.
When people aren't willing to listen to God,God can send them a deceptive spirit to deceive them so that they believe lies even more . Because they were not willing to let go of their sin.
An example of this is also the story of Ahab. (1 kings 22:10-37).
2 THESSALONIANS 2 : 10-12 "and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who
are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the
truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a
powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so
that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth
but have delighted in wickedness."
Let the bible and the word of God be our guide.
If you have noticed I have emphasised on using the word and the Holyspirit.
The reason is because only the Holyspirit can interpret the scripture to us.
"He has made us competent as ministers of a new
covenant–not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter
kills, but the Spirit gives life."2 CORINTHIANS 3:6
The deceivers will use the bible but they will twist scripture to validate their lies.We need the Holyspirit and we need to know the word of God.
Another tactic that they use is,satan sends more than one of them at a time.
He releases one with a demonic revelation,then sends another with the same lie.He can even make sure they are in different countries.People will think,"how come even this other person is saying this?It should be true."despite it contradicting the bible.Not knowing that they are all serving one master and they are just fooling you.
In all the time God was teaching me about deception,I have had encounters with all these different types of deceivers.
Some were people whom I even trusted and looked genuine till God opened my spiritual eyes to see who they really are and their mission.
In all this time,I have come to know that the deception of the kingdom of darkness is very advanced such that without the Holyspirit anyone can be deceived.
The Lord allows me to see demons in human desguise.
In my encounters with them,it's when I have learned just how advanced satan's deception is.You can't catch him without the Holyspirit.
They plan everything so very well and so very convincing.Taking several years just laying the ground for that one moment.They will invest so much just for that one moment.Because they know what they want to achieve.
I will give you a personal example.
In 2006,I didn't even care about God or even know Him.i was just in the world.
This person befriended a member of my family and became very close to my family.
He became so close to us that he would even spend nights at our home because he was a friend to one of my brothers.
He was always talking about God and even earned my mum's trust.Mum would always say,"that young man is a true child of God."
Years went by and he kept close contact with us till in 2011 he asked for my hand in marriage and I turned him down because I wasn't in love with him.
He still kept contact with my family till I got saved in 2011 and began encountering Jesus.
When he heard about my encounters with Jesus,he showed excitement and seemed interested to hear what the Lord was telling us.
I later moved to another town.Coincidentally he had moved to that same town a few years before.
Because I was new in town,and because he had become close to my family,he suggested I visit the church he was attending.
Zipporah and I went there.The pastor was a real man of God filled with the Holyspirit.And I noticed that he was extremely close to the pastor.
Most people in church looked up to him and gave him as an example of a true christian.
Till one day God opened my eyes and I saw this man was actually a demon in human desguise!
I was shocked!
But then God opened Zipporah's eyes and she saw him too!
We were really shocked!
God then told me satan sent this demon so that it marries me then makes my life miserable and destroys me!
This was someone I knew long before I even knew God's call on my life!
So in all this time,even before I knew it,the kingdom of darkness had seen God's call on my life and before I had even answered it they had already prepared someone to extinguish that call!
All those years before I even knew Jesus,He was already doing ground work,earning our trust.
It's possible for satan to see your call before you even realise it.
A person's call exists right from birth and can be seen by people who can see in the spirit and even by the enemy.Satan doesn’t completely understand a person's call but he's able to see signs of it.
If we used physical reasoning we would doubt because he wasn't someone I knew after I was in ministry.So we are to use spiritual eyes for spiritual things.
My pastor could see in the spirit but he couldn’t see this person is a demon.Not everyone can see the demons in desguise,it's God who can show you.
So that's how much their deception is.They don't usually leave physical evidence.But I know it's God who protected me.And He's able to protect all of you too from deception.
So don't use physical reasoning but just use the Holyspirit.
There is a fine line between true teachers and the fake ones . That's why the bible says if it were possible they would deceive the very elect.Mark 13:22
Again I say;THE BIBLE and the HOLY SPIRIT.
