If deception were not what it is, no one would be deceived. Therefore our Lord warned that in the last days it would lead astray, if possible, even the elect9. G-d's people are in danger of perishing --- for lack of knowledge; of coming to ruin for lack of understanding10. A deception is not apparent as error, as an outright evil. Its true nature is disguised with an appearance of truth, goodness and justice.
Jericho was the first of the cities of Canaan G-d delivered into the hands of His people Israel. It is the first of the cities of Judah delivered back unto the Canaanites by Israel's apostate leadership. Yet millions of nominal Christians, and even "Spirit-filled" ones, are duped into believing that these agreements will lead to a "just and comprehensive peace" in the Middle East.
Even the leadership of the Trinity Broadcasting Network has fallen for Satan's deception. In a letter to a concerned lover of Israel and supporter of "Or Tzion," Paul Crouch wrote: "We are sorry that you seem to misunderstand what we are trying to do in our contact with the PLO. We are not, in any sense, having "fellowship with a man who is a murderer." We have met with THE LEADER OF A GOVERNMENT that is in control of an area in the world that we would like very much to have a television ministry in. We have made contacts with the leaders of Israel, leaders in Egypt, leaders in Jordan, and NOW WE HAVE MADE CONTACT WITH THE PLO. Our only desire is that we might be able to establish a television station in that area to bring the Gospel there... Be aware of the fact that in the early church the leaders of the church made contact with local governments in order to establish their work in those areas. That is exactly what we have been doing, AND WE SHOULD NOT BE ACCUSED of trying to have fellowship with someone who is a known terrorist..."
Who is it that misunderstands the purposes of G-d? Has G-d's arm been so shortened that He needs to form an alliance with Satan, in the Name of His Son, to get the Gospel into the Middle East? Has the Lord become so weak that He needed to add a new directive to the Great Commission: "The end justifies the means?" Do Messiah and Anti-Christ now work together for the salvation of mankind? Do holiness and lawlessness now agree for the sake of peace? Is it the Lord's interest that is on Paul Crouch's heart --- or TBN's?
Has Mr. Crouch never read: "Lo, THY enemies are in tumult; those who HATE THEE have raised their heads. They lay crafty plans against Thy people; they consult together against Thy protected ones. They say, 'Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!' Yea, they conspire with one accord; AGAINST THEE they make a covenant - the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites, Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assyria also has joined them; they are the strong arm of the children of Lot... who said, 'Let us take possession for ourselves of the PASTURES OF G-D'?"11
Does he not know G-d's answer to their plots12:
has spoken by His holiness: 'With exultation I will divide up Shechem and
portion out the vale of Succoth. Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine;
Ephraim is My helmet; Judah is My scepter. Moab is My washbasin; upon Edom
I cast my shoe; over Philistia I SHOUT IN TRIUMPH!'"
