Several years ago, I had the opportunity to attend several Promise Keeper events and they were wonderful times of praise and worship.

GREAT IS THE LORD AND MOST WORTHY

OF PRAISE

THE CITY OF OUR GOD,

THE HOLY PLACE

THE JOY OF THE WHOLE EARTH.


  

GREAT IS THE LORD WITH WHOM
WE HAVE THE VICTORY
HE AIDS US AGAINST THE ENEMY
WE BOW DOWN ON OUR KNEES.

AND LORD WE WANT TO
LIFT YOUR NAME UP HIGH
AND LORD WE WANT TO THANK YOU
FOR THE WORK YOU'VE
DONE IN OUR LIVES

AND LORD WE TRUST
IN YOUR UNFAILING LOVE
FOR YOU ALONE ARE GOD ETERNAL
THROUGHOUT EARTH
AND HEAVEN ABOVE.

The Delusional Among Us

“…for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” 2 Thessalonians 2:11. The Greek word “energeia” is translated into our English language as “strong”. Interestingly, this Greek word is used in the New Testament only of superhuman strength. God shall send them strong delusion. The English words “should and believe” stem from one Greek word “pisteuō” which means: to think to be true, to be persuaded of, to credit, place confidence in.

The fact that there are people today walking around in a state of delusion is obvious. Here’s an example of delusional: Many people right here in America view their current president as the messiah – is that not delusional?  “For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” Matthew 24:5. Our current president may not verbally claim to be the Christ, although many others in positions of authority and the media here in the US have done just that, he nonetheless has deceived many – and he never refutes those delusional declarations promoting his deity.

Metaphorically speaking it means: mental straying, error, wrong opinion relative to morals or religion, error which shows itself in action, a wrong mode of acting, that which leads into deceit or fraud – deception. The Greek word “pseudos” is translated into our English as “lie”. The actual meaning of the Greek word is: conscious and intentional falsehood. Last year at the Democratic convention our Creator God was overwhelmingly booed, thus forcefully removed from that gathering. But the liar (the current occupier of the Oval Office) was hailed as god. Is that not a conscious and intentional falsehood – is that not essence of delusional?

Who are “they” that Paul is speaking of in 2 Thessalonians 2:11? “That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:12. They are those who’ve been presented with the truth of God’s word and yet they’ve rejected it as false. This verse then takes us a step further in describing these truth rejecters. They had pleasure in unrighteousness. The Greek word translated into English as unrighteousness comes from a Greek root word that actually means deceitful; in other words, besides having no reverence for God these folks take pleasure in being deceitful....
