2Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
The devil is the enemy of our souls and hates all of us because we are lovingly created in the image of ALMIGHTY GOD and have been blessed with the gift of JESUS CHRIST. Through the precious shed blood of JESUS CHRIST we have the hope of forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life if we repent, believe and freely choose this wonderful gift. The devil used to be Lucifer, an angel created by ALMIGHTY GOD with his own powerful anointing. Well Lucifer decided he wanted to be equal with The LORD GOD and was cast out of heaven with one-third of the angels that followed him.
Lucifer is now Satan, a fallen angel, the father of lies, the prince of the air, the prince of this world. He and the angels that followed him can never be forgiven and they are sentenced by ALMIGHTY GOD to eternity in the lake of fire, a place prepared especially for them. You have heard the old saying “misery loves company”? Well that is just how the devil thinks because he knows that his time on this earth is short. He is working overtime to deceive and corrupt as many people as he can through his subtleness and charm. Remember that if the devil showed us his true character then most people would run in the opposite direction.
The devil appears as an angel of light so a person that is not completely sold out to JESUS CHRIST could easily be deceived. That is why there is such a great falling away of the church; because many people in authority positions are putting on a good show and pretend to be messengers of the GOOD NEWS of JESUS CHRIST, but inside they are following the enemy of their souls and allowing themselves to be used to lead people astray.
2Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 
2Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 
It is time to fully embrace JESUS CHRIST and totally commit your life to serve Him. When you have a love for JESUS CHRIST and lift Him up as your LORD and SAVIOR, you will love the truth and not be led astray. 
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Realize that without JESUS CHRIST you will stumble in the darkness of this world and will be a prime target for the devil to attack you through deception and confusion. Folks, the line has been drawn and we all must choose between eternal life with JESUS CHRIST or eternal damnation with the devil. Remember that you cannot compromise and have it both ways. We are at a point in our world history when turmoil like you have never experienced before is about to be unleashed upon the earth. Just look around and you can surely see all of the catastrophic events going on throughout the world such as this “pandemic”, plagues of locusts, earthquakes in many places at the same time, nation rising against nation, just to name a few instances.
Soon the antichrist will be revealed to the world and he will be equipped by Satan himself. He will deceive many people with his charm and wit and will appear to offer a perfect solution to all of the world’s problems. He will bring a false peace and many people will be seduced by his enticing ways. All of these things must come to pass before JESUS CHRIST returns for the true church which is the Body of Christ, not a tax-exempt organization led by board members who follow legalism.
2Thessalonians 2:3 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;
2Thessalonians 2:4 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. 
There are many people rejecting JESUS CHRIST right now and it will get even worse by the time the antichrist makes himself known to the world, along with the false prophet and the rulers that make up the beast system. The people who freely choose to walk away from the precious gift of grace that ALMIGHTY GOD has provided will be given a strong delusion from The LORD GOD and believe a lie because they did not love the truth that He tried to share with them, which is the ONLY truth that has ever existed. 
2Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 
We must cling to JESUS CHRIST and never let Him go. He freely laid His life down fo! r all of us, shed His precious blood and died on the cross for the sins of the whole world, and arose triumphantly on the third day. No one loves you like JESUS CHRIST does – NO ONE! He is coming back some day, a day only GOD The FATHER knows. Do not allow yourself to be deceived and believe a lie, LOVE JESUS CHRIST AND LOVE THE TRUTH!
