Part of the The Coming Spiritual Earthquake series, preached for Growing Together Radio

Zechariah 10:2 For the gods speak delusions; the fortune tellers predict lies, and interpreters of dreams pronounce comfortless falsehoods, so my people are wandering like lost sheep without a shepherd to protect and guide them.

The Incredible Expanding Delusion is our subject today. We are going to walk down the hallways of the future to discover what the state of religion will be like in the Brave New World Order. America is facing its greatest spiritual crisis in history. The Church has been persecuted in every age and in most every country since it’s inception. We should prepare for that eventuality. An Incredible Delusion is spreading across the world landscape.

Revelation 13:4-8

And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?”

And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in heaven. Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation, and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain.
