Satan’s Sleight of Hand

Terry James | Prophecy Line

The resolution to Satan’s evil isn’t legislation, but a Person – the Lord Jesus Christ.
He is the only solution that can save the individual, the nation, or the world.

Listening to the many conservative voices as I do each week, my thought is most often “they get it—almost.” Sometimes they come closer to getting it than at other times. Some come closer to getting it than others.

Rush Limbaugh, for example, comes closer to “getting it” than most anyone else. But even he falls short of what is truly going on with regard to what is assaulting this nation and world.

And, just like salvation itself, if you miss it by an inch, you miss it by the proverbial mile, because at the root of the problems involved in both the case of salvation and the assault taking place is the same critical element. It is a profound cause that acts as a blinding agent to all else that flows from that root cause.

It is this element that gives Lucifer the deluding, deceiving ability to produce the sleight of hand that blinds most to what’s really going on.

Rush, for example, recognizes correctly that at least half of America has, apparently, gone insane. He talks for hours each day about how the educators have for decades now molded the minds of America’s youth through the public school system from K through grad school. They have rewritten—retaught—history by inculcating the “skulls full of mush,” as he puts it, with the lie that America was founded by evil, white slaveholders. And, he says in part, this inculcation, in cahoots with other deception, is why we have arrived at the point where there are more white people among the protesters and rioters than black people. He says, and the facts are there to prove it, that the current protests in the major cities where they are taking place are led in many cases by young, white, women who come from ”privileged”  backgrounds.

These, he says, are full of guilt from their deluding inculcation. They are as enraged over perceived wrongs by the founding fathers and Civil War history as the African-Americans for whom they protest and riot, thus the bowing of the knees before even the anarchists.

We’re witnessing a cultural revolution not unlike the one of China a couple of decades ago, Rush declares. The turmoil and foment are all part of the long-sought determination by the Marxist educators and others to grab the biggest prize in the geopolitical grab bag of goodies.

If they can get America to agree that largesse stored in its vaults and printing presses should be given to those seeking reparations for slavery and to be used for other giveaways, they can create the welfare class that depends totally upon their governance. A permanent underclass will make globalism the wave of the future, once America falls to the utopian ideal long claimed to be wrapped up in communistic intent.

The following article somewhat presents this almost-got-it, sleight-of-hand expression of thought.

The coronavirus was a heck of a cover for the Federal Reserve’s failings, and the riots laid even more cover for what’s to come. While the masses focus on what’s happening on the surface, the real criminals laugh at our ignorance from their metaphorical ivory towers.

As we fight amongst ourselves and try to figure out which violence is more acceptable, looting or police brutality, the ruling class is tightening the chains of our enslavement. With the help of the mainstream media, we are distracted from the core of the problem while dividing ourselves as the masters command…

You cannot trust CNN. You cannot trust lamestream, fakestream media. We know that they have an agenda. We know that they cherry-pick facts. And we know they lay down heavy deception. They are there to distract, deceive, and divide the masses. And what’s really going on in this country, remember, make no mistake; the Federal Reserve is laying cover for their operation to get rid of the dollar and move us all into a one-world digital reserve currency. And once we get rid of physical currency, guys, that is the granddaddy of them all as far as a surveillance state. Because they will be able to detect every single purchase by every single person every moment of the day.

The above story goes on to recommend precious metals as a hedge against what is coming in terms of economic disaster. It is a man-made answer, they believe, to a man-made catastrophe to come.

And that’s where Satan’s sleight-of-hand delusion comes into play. Like in the game of thimblerig (now called the shell game) in which a pea is placed under a thimble and three thimbles are shuffled, and the gambler guesses which the pea is under to make his wager, the devil distracts our eyes and minds to other areas in our surroundings. He thus makes even the most astute observers among us miss what he is really doing.

He is, in fact, setting the stage for bringing in his man of sin, the Antichrist.

Tom Horn and I have written a book we call Antichrist and The Final Solution. It details, through Bible prophecy overlaid by history and current events, exactly where all of this sleight-of-hand is moving this world of rebelliousness. More about this book in the coming weeks. It is a fascinating look into our strange time upon this fallen planet.

This isn’t meant to be a commercial, but in researching, studying and writing on the sleight-of-hand going on, it becomes clear that those who are still of sound mind and not of the reprobate mind of Romans 1:28 just don’t see the true, root cause that will soon bring America and the world totally into the devil’s orbit.

These don’t see the problem as rooted in sin. They don’t comprehend that it is the spiritual battle laid out by Paul the apostle in Ephesians 6: 12.

These believe that what is needed is more legislation to take away liberal ideology from within society and culture that will do the trick—that will change the minds of the voters in order to restore America, and the world at large, to sanity.

But it is the spiritual hearts of mankind that must be changed. The battle is rooted in spiritual wickedness, not merely in ideological, polemical disputations.

The resolution to Satan’s evil isn’t legislation, but a Person – the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only solution that can save the individual, the nation, or the world.
