Beware of the Angel of Light, Satan. The Deceiver, the Liar, the One who cannot abide in the Truth is allowed to exert his full powers of deception. God is guarding and preserving all the truth-lovers, the rest of mankind goes with the Devil. That is a thumbnail of the End. The First Seal is the Global spread of the Lie. Amazingly, this first seal, and its white horseman of deception is an event on God’s timetable, much described in the Scriptures. We ended last time in 2 Thessalonians.
Please turn back there with me and as you do, remember that these twin epistles to the church in the city of Thessalonica, were Paul’s first epistles. Paul taught them more about Christ’s end-time plans, than anyone except John in Revelation.
First, Truth Gets Abandoned: 2 Th. 2:3
Then, Almighty God Gets Pushed Aside: 2 Th. 2:4-8
Then, Satan Amazes the World: 2 Th. 2:9-10
So, God Sends Strong Delusion on Truth Neglectors: 2 Th. 2:11-12 And for this reason, God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Our protection comes as we believe the truth about God. Last time we looked at the century-old set of doctrinal positions in a book called The Fundamentals, that defined orthodox doctrine for those God calls “lovers” of the truth.
This group of conservative, Bible-believing and teaching pastors and professors sat down and declared what were the “foundational doctrines” of the faith. They published their confession in a set of books called the Fundamentals, which contain:
