The apostasy of the last days is not a failure to believe in miracles. Instead, the apostasy will be characterized by an unbiblical emphasis on the miraculous and supernatural. A passage that describes this phenomenon is 2 Thessalonians 2:1–12. Paul states that the future deception will include the following demonic activities. There will be a false spirit or message or letter (v. 2); there will be deception (vv. 3, 10); the deception will be persuasive because of the activity of Satan, which includes all power (miracles) and signs and false wonders (v. 9); and God will send a deluding influence (v. 11).

Matthew 24:24 describes the Tribulation as a time to be on the lookout for “false Christs and false prophets,” who “will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect.” Notice that these false signs and wonders are called “great,” which means that they are highly impressive displays. However, their purpose is to mislead, not to edify.

 

Are we living in the last days, the Apostle Paul says we are, it’s tough to argue with that. We know that a 1000 days to us is one day with the Lord, so yes the divine calendar and our calendar definitely doesn’t match up. But if you look at the signs you can see that one key element of the last days is deception and being deceived. And if there is one key thread in the false message so many religious talking heads are talking about it is the focus on you and your power, your faith, your gifts, your spiritual rights; you get my drift.

I can’t tell you how many books come across my desk asking if I’ve read “so and so” the answer is almost universally no, and along with that I won’t see any modern movie that touts itself as Christian, as it is always ( and I mean always false doctrine)

So do yourself a favor, stick to your bible, read the classics, and double check every single word your pastor says.
