To deceieve is to: impersonate, pretend, imitate or masquerade: In other words, what is seen is not really what is being presented.
Perhaps the most cunning deception is that of “transgenderism” or the transgender agenda: A man pretending or masquerading or imitating or impersonating a woman and vice versa. This is so apparent in this world today referring to him who is really her; and her who is really him: It’s all confusion! It’s all lies!
Jesus says: “He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44).
The devil, aka Satan, the prince of this world, the Son of Perdition, that man of sin is also a “cross dresser” who likes to where woman’s clothes which is an abomination because the word of God says: “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are [ABOMINATION unto the LORD thy God” (Deuteronomy 22:5).
The day is coming when this impostor, deceiver, impersonator, imitator, pretender, masquerader will be revealed.
Jesus says: “But when ye shall [SEE THE ABOMINATION] of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing [WHERE IT OUGHT NOT], (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judæa flee to the mountains:” (Mark 13:14).
“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; 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” (2 Thessalonians 2:3–4).
When Jesus comes he will destroy the Devil, aka Satan, that Wicked.
“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” (2 Thessalonians 2:8).
