Strong Delusion that is here/coming. 2Thess. 2:11 Messiah Yahshua declares in Matt. 24: 22-24, that the possibility to deceive the Very Elect exists. It is this particular deception that will pave the way for the Strong Delusion surrounding the Anti-Messiah. This suggests, that the current church deception is extremely subtle, not blatant or overt; else it would be rejected out of hand. Yet, left unchecked, this delusion will separate many from the Truth. What is the origin of this deceit?
Deceive, #4105, planao, from #4108, planos, to wander, a vagabond, an imposter, a corruptor and deceiver (OF WHAT). Note the word vagabond and the initial place it occurs. Gen. 4:14 fugitive and vagabond are both from similar Hebrew words, Heb. # 5128, nuwa, to stagger, quiver, be tossed about & Heb. # 5110, nuwd, to shake to and fro, lament, wander aimlessly. Cain’s becoming a vagabond causes him to reel about without any direction. James 1:8 speaks of a double-minded man being unstable in all his ways. We must understand what Cain lost that caused him to become directionless. What once “steered” him? The same is, I believe, part of the deception that almost deceives the Very Elect! It is this subtle, hidden deception that paves way for the Strong Delusion sent by YHVH! Clues? Let’s examine the words of Cain himself: Gen. 4:14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, [that] every one that findeth me shall slay me.
Driven, #1644, גרשgarish, to expel, drive out, put away, divorce. This is the same word as that of Gen. 3:24, used to describe the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden (gan) Eden. *note the Hebrew word for Eden, #5727 – 5730, ` עדןEden, to revel, take pleasure, it can refer to something that is
currently happening, and as a fem. Noun, it can indicate sexual pleasure, and finally, it can indicate a period of time. Thus, Eden was the garden of Appointed Times – the place reserved for the husband and bride to be intimate. Ancient Near Eastern customs dictate that marriage is a contract and except a woman produce Seed to carry the name, she can be divorced! Mal. 2: 14 – 16! Adam & Eve are cut off because no seed is produced for YHVH, they give themselves to another and can’t be remarried to YHVH – thus Yahshua intervenes in order to restore the Name – For His Name’s sake!
From, (Heb. #5921 “al, against, beyond) thy face Heb. #6440, paniym, face, presence, from #6437 panah, to turn toward, from (in the sense of the dawn or decline of the day) shall I be hid, Heb. #5641, cathar, hidden, concealed. The implication is that of a separation from the Divine Day(s) appointments! Calendar! It was this that caused the absence of direction for Cain. He begins to keep a false Calendar! Gen. 4:15 states, “whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” Yet, the Chumash says that the actual Hebrew phrase is: “Cain will be slain after 7 generations”. YHVH Marks him to prevent someone from discovering his identity beforehand and killing him. At this juncture, a generation is 1000 yrs. = 1 day. Could this be a reference to the future Serpent seed of Cain a.k.a. the Anti-Messiah who would also be marked (remaining anonymous) and mark his own, while being cut off after 7 generations – 7000yrs.?
The Mark of Cain.
Tradition says this mark was on Cain’s forehead. There are only 3 places where a mark or sign was mentioned as being placed on the hand or forehead. Ex. 13:9, Ezek. 9:4, Rev. 13:6. What are the intentions of these “signs”? Ex. 13:9 "And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that Yahweh's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath Yahweh brought thee out of Egypt." "And it shall be for a sign unto thee..." What is "it"? A basic rule of language tells us that a pronoun like "it" must have an antecedent, i.e., a noun that precedes it and identifies it. If we look at the antecedent in the previous
verses of Exodus 13, we discover that the pronoun "it" is actually referring to Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the holidays that mark the beginning of God's Sacred calendar. Notice how this is the idea expressed in several English translations: "This observance will be a reminder like something tied on your hand or on your forehead; it will remind you to continue to recite and study the Law of the LORD, because the LORD brought you out of Egypt by his great power." (TEV) "This observance will be for you like a sign on your hand and a reminder on your forehead that the law of the LORD is to be on your lips. For the LORD brought you out of Egypt with his mighty hand." (NIV) "This will serve ~ a sign on your hand would serve, or a reminder on your forehead, and in that way the law of Yahweh will be ever on your lips: for with a mighty hand Yahweh brought you out of Egypt." (New Jerusalem Bible) "This annual memorial week will brand you as His own unique people, just as though He had branded His mark of ownership upon your hands or your forehead." (Living Bible) Is it conceivable therefore, that the Mark of Cain, the Mark of the “Beast”, and the Mark of YHVH, are interconnected? I think so. If the figurative "mark" on the hand and forehead of YHVH’S people is the observance of YHVH’S calendar, then Satan's counterfeit, The Mark of The Beast, would most likely be the observance of a counterfeit calendar, complete with a counterfeit Sabbath and substitute holidays. In addition to the Feasts of The LORD, the weekly 7th-day Sabbath is also called a "sign" between God and His people, in Exodus 31:1 6 and Ezekiel 20:12. The Hebrew word used in these passages to describe the Sabbath as a "sign" is the very same Hebrew word that is used to describe the "phylacteries" as a "sign" in Exodus 13:9. This is why Jews do not wear teffillin on the Sabbath; a person keeping the Sabbath is regarded as already bearing God's "sign"; therefore the wearing of the phylacteries as a "sign" is superfluous or redundant on the Sabbath.
It seems evident that the particular calendar one keeps then serves as a “MARK” of identification, in the forehead – indicating worship, in the hand – to indicate observance physically. Note the connection to worship: Cain is exiled for murdering his brother Abel over a dispute regarding Passover observance, Gen. 4: 3 – 8. Process, Heb. #7093, qets, end of a space or time, from Heb. # 7112, qatsats, to cut or hew off, cut in two, cut in pieces. This indicates a connection to a sacrificial appointment. Which one? The nature of the offerings tells us. Pesach! Firstling, Heb. # 1062, bek-o-raw, birthright, firstborn offering. The root is from #1069, bakar, to be born first. Related to Basar, FLESH! The firstborn would function as “High Priest” of the family. Cain rejects the Commandment relating to this festival requirement. Thereby, attempting to change the law and later the specific times. Sound familiar? Daniel’s Anti-Messiah Prophecy. Dan. 7:21 – 27 Verse 22 is a parenthetical statement. All scholars acknowledge the fourth kingdom as the Roman Empire. It was prophesied that Daniel's fourth beast, Rome, would "think to change times and laws," and the Hebrew word means "appointed times." (The Smith-Goodspeed and Moffatt translations say the fourth beast "would attempt to change sacred seasons and the law"; the Knox translation says "calendar and ordinance.") Whose appointed times/sacred seasons/calendar would the enemy want to change but YHVH's? The Roman Catholic Church boasts of her changing of the Sabbath to Sunday, and even claims this act as the sign (or "mark") of her authority to change times and laws. Many Christians think that Rome's changing of the Sabbath to Sunday does not matter. Does it matter? Let me answer that question with a question: Why would the spirit behind Rome want to change the Sabbath if it does not matter? Does that mean that Sunday Keepers are lost? No, out of their past and present ignorance YHVH extends mercy. But when Sunday observance shall be enforced by law, and the world shall be enlightened concerning the obligation of the true Sabbath, then whoever shall transgress the command of YHVH, to obey a precept which has no higher authority than that of Rome, will thereby honor popery above YHVH. He is paying homage to Rome and to
the power, which enforces the institution ordained by Rome. He is worshipping the beast and his image.
