America (USA), initially a Christian nation, became the greatest
nation, religiously, morally, economically, politically, militarily and
socially, (past tense) that ever existed on the face of the earth. America was
born on the faith of Christianity by its founding fathers, who were followers
of the teachings of Jesus Christ. Fifty-two (52) of the 55 delegates composing
the US Constitution were Bible believing Protestant Christians, two were Catholic,
and one was a Deist.
Now the majority of America has fallen away for the truth of
Jesus Christ and is in the predicted captivity of the demon Delusion, as
the bible first mentions this English word delusion only once from its Latin
Origin in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 which reads in its context: ". . . Now
we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our
gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be
troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the
day of Christ is at hand. 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; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all
that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God sitteth in the
Temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not that, when I
was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that
he might be revealed in his time For the mystery of iniquity (lawlessness) doth
already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the
way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with
the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs
and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that
perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be
saved And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that
they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the
truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness" 2 Thessalonians
An individual does not have to major in college history, but spend only one hour reading, William Federer's book, "America's God and Country, Encyclopedia of Quotes" to conclude that America was founded by Christian believers in the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible. America, for the majority of its citizens, was a
Bible believing and obeying Christian nation. This belief was concluded in the Supreme Court Case: "Church of the Holy Trinity v. United States, 143 U.S. 457 (1892), This case is famous for Justice Brewer's statements that America is a "Christian nation."
These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation." 143 U.S. 457 (1892)
The majority of America is presently the midst of the New Testament prophecy predicting the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ happening after the one time church of Jesus Christ falls away from the truth of God’s Word by the master evil spirit of Strong Delusion.
The English word delusion, was first used in the Bible's New Testament in English by William Tyndale, in 1525. Tyndale was a true scholar
and a genius, so fluent in eight languages that it was said one would think any one of them to be his native tongue. He translated from the original Greek and Hebrew with some of the words used, not from the corrupted Latin Vulgate,
but from the corrected Latin Vulgate by the great scholar Erasmus who published
his Greek/Latin New Testament in 1516.
The following is the Greek meaning of "Strong Delusion" from Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible and Old Testament Hebrew and New Testament Greek Dictionary
2 Thessalonians 2:11 ". . . And for this cause God shall send them strong <1753> delusion <4106>, that they should believe a lie: . . ."
# 1753 for Greek ἐνέργεια energeia en-erg’-i-ah
from 1756; working 4, effectual working 2, operation 1,strong 1; 8 working, efficiency in the NT used only of superhuman power, whether of God or of the Devil.
delusion: Strong's #4106 Greek: πλάνη plane
plan’-ay from 4108 -error, to deceive, deceit, delusion, a wandering, a straying about one led astray from the right way, roams hither and thither, mental straying error, working in error, wrong opinion relative to morals or religion, error which shows itself in action, a wrong mode of acting error, that which leads into error, deceit or fraud,
Based on the facts that the English word, delusion, and its meaning, originated in the bible from God 2 Tim.3:16, means delusion is a curse from God to those who not only refuse to believe the truths of God's Word in the Bible (KJV), but refuse to obey the absolute truth of the Word of God. The overwhelming majority of "Christian" churches in America and those who profess to be Christians are presently in captivity of the master demon of Delusion because they refuse to believe and obey the Word of God in His Holy Scriptures. They have departed from the Truth, become deluded and no longer able to distinguish what is absolute truth and what is not. They prefer their own relative truths over God's absolute truths. These unfortunate souls will not be raised on their last day and are hell-bound if they do not repent because they have not the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit, residing within them to teach them the absolute truth, this same indwelling Spirit, the Holy Spirit, being necessary for eternal salvation as confirmed in Romans 8:11; John 14:17; John 16:13 )
