10 and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
After the man of lawlessness or the Antichrist is revealed, he will use every kind of evil deception through satanic power (2Thessalonians 2:9), to fool those who refused to love and accept the truth that would save them. These people are ready for the deception of the Antichrist, because they want a lie, so they will receive a strong delusion.
As followers of Christ, we should always love the truth of God’s word, for we are already living in a time where people do not want to listen to sound doctrine, but want to follow their own desires and have teachers who tell them what they are itching to hear.
If we love God, we should also delight in the truth of His word.
