Ezekiel 38:10 “Thus saith the LORD GOD; It shall come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought.”
If there has ever been a topic that had the ability to land me on the “nuttier-than-a-fruitcake” roster, this could possibly be the one. It would be much easier to just let this one alone and focus on soaring exhortations, such as a deep pondering of the age to come. (It would definately be preferrable) And yet, if this situation is truly playing out; if this is something that has leaped from the pages of science fiction and is being employed at this moment, the danger is so immensely great that one cannot fathom the whole of it. When considering conditions that will prevail in the time of the end, we (or at least I) tend to unwittingly place perimeters around a form that we believe these events will take. In other words, we may unwittingly construct a mental picture idea of what “deceiving if it were possible even the very elect” will look like; based upon our limited theological understandings coupled with imaginations. But then, something comes along that introduces a whole new realm of considerations. Things that we never before thought of as being possible.
While considering the information that makes up the bulk of this post, the following passage came to mind. In fact, the importance of this truth was elevated to an entirely new level of urgency as I began to fathom just how perilous these times are: 
John 10:27-28 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.”
It goes without saying that it’s imperative for each of us to be hearing from on high.  This truth was made all the more obvious after listening the interview with Dr. John Hall on the February 8 broadcast of Coast to Coast AM. For a number of years, Dr. Hall has investigated the increasing number of reports by otherwise stable people who claim to be “hearing voices.” We know that there is such a thing; brought on by a certain mental condition and/or spiritual dabblings. (I have a close relative who used to play with a ouija board and now “hears things” that should never have been issued an invitation) However, the phenomenon that Dr. Hall is investigating appears to be artificially manufactured by those seated in high places who have a sinister motive. These voices carry well-defined messages and/or instructions. There is evidence that the technology is at hand, which allows the literal “transmitting of voices” from military satellites (commercial satellites aren’t powerful enough) directly into the mind of a select individual, or group of individuals.
The victims of this “electronic harassment” are unable to escape these vocal intrusions; not even with the proverbial “aluminum foil” placed on the head. Careers have been derailed, reputations compromised, and lives destroyed because of these attacks. These cases are incredibly hard to detect for two reasons. First, the symptoms closely resemble a well-known (and very often spoofed) mental condition. Secondly, the technology required to engage in this seems “so far out there” that one is tempted to doubt if such a thing is possible. These two elements, coupled with the anonymity of the perpetrators, make this phenomenon incredibly hard to detect. Dr. hall stated that many folks who suffer from this are committed by well-meaning family members who react to the initial symptoms. Most of these people have no history of previous mental problems, have not engaged in any occult practices, and have no family history of either. Many are ordinary citizens who have been singled out; suggesting that this technology is still in the “testing” phase. (What are they planning to do when “testing” is completed?) Here’s a link to Dr. Halls book, which I should have a copy of later this week.
During the interview, Dr. Hall stated some differences between electronic harassment and the mental condition that it resembles. The most noticable one is that these “voices” carry well-defined messages, whereas those suffering from mental/spiritual complexities tend to hear incoherant “bits and pieces” of messages. (although an imagination can certainly assemble these “bits and pieces” into things) Dr. Hall has also made a list of demographics; revealing “where” and to “whom” this is hapening. Here are some of the perimeters:
1. This is happening on a global scale; suggesting that this technology may not be confined to a single nation. Many cases are being reported in the United States, Canada, China, and others.
2. In the U.S. the majority of cases are in California, Texas, Florida, and New York. In an unrelated observation, these are the same states in which the known cases of Morgellans are concentrated. During the interview, the mention of this parallel cause a “hmm” moment.
3. In the U.S. a notable percentage of the victims are single ladies between the age of 30 and 45. Other groups include people who have found themselves in the crosshairs of large corporations, people who have been at odds with a major law firm, and select individuals with no ties to anything of this nature. These “ordinary victims” are the most difficult to distinguish. When seeking consolation from others, friends and family will disbelievingly ask them “why would they want you?”  
4. In Canada, the list of victims includes (but is not limited to) people who have been in opposition to the government. (Dr Hall suggested that the CIA could be behind this as they have a shadowy history of conducting experiments north of the border. Much of the technological information that Dr Hall has assembled, has come from former CIA agents and informants who disclosed both the existance and the implementation of this technology)
5. Many of these victims also report being routinely “stalked” and having their residences broken into. (Again, the perpetrators are relatively safe because people who “hear voices in their head” tend to not be taken seriously)
As if this isn’t ominous enough, there is a side to this that’s far more sinister and fits into the catagory of last days deception:
6. There have been reports of people hearing voices claiming to be God.
I don’t even know where to begin tackling the danger of this; not only to those who know not the Lord, but undiscerning Christians who go with the flow of mainstream evangelicalism. We’re in an age where much focus is on relationships and getting along; not contending for the truth (which will make a person free) and discernment (which will keep a person free) Other dangers include a love for the world, seeking after signs (signs should follow the saints; not the other way around) and a general contentment with their “religionus routine” I fear that many have abandoned their first love in favor of a religious lifestyly; complete with just enough good works and warm fuzzy feelings, to conceil a heart that no longer follows hard after the Lord Jesus. (Psalm 63:8) All of these things will leave a saint woefully unprepared for the hour of temptation; even if the technology being considered in this post is not a factor.
Seeking after signs is in need of expounding. Signs and miraculous happenings have an important place. They bring deliverance (as in a healing or a victory that’s not possible in the physical realm) they confirm the word of God before non-believers. They will “always” result in the name of Jesus being glorified. There is, however, a very real danger when saints go running to and fro in search of signs because there are things which are deceitful in nature. We must be in a place spiritually where we can “try the spirits to see if they be of God.” And if one throws mechanical manipulation into the mix of end times deception, the ambience becomes so toxic that, unless a person is truly grounded in the word of God and atuned to the Holy Spirit, they “will” be led astray. The warning that Jesus issued concerning the level of deception in the time of the end should be considered by us all:
Matthew 24:24-25 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders: insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Behold, I have told you before.”
The following link is to a report that appeared on Steve Quayles site In August of 2006. It talks of a false, “staged rapture.” Upon first reading this, my hair stood on end as I considered how many saints would be in danger of falling for such a thing:
When the consensus in many fellowships is an unconcerned “oh don’t worry; we’re going to be raptured out of here before any of those things happen” one can see how incredibly perilous these times are. This is no time for lightness as the groundwork for a great falling away has already been laid. I’m not one given to visions, however, one day while shoveling snow (about 5 years ago) I was pondering what the great falling away would look like. For a brief moment (as in “it was over before it hit me that it had transpired”) I saw a battlefield littered with fallen soldiers in every direction. Their uniforms resembled those that would have been worn in the eighteenth century. This portion escaped me for a long time, until several months later. This was an army that was ill-equipped for the battle at hand; just as an eighteenth century army would be no match for a twenty first century army. Many Saints are unprepared for what’s coming. It’s interesting that, in discussing the time of the end, Jesus begins with the statement “Take heed that no man deceive you.” 
One may review such considerations and ask “why should such a topic should be tackled?” Considerations of the end cause many Saints to become uneasy and even fearful. This post is already running long, so the post right after this one will discuss the issue of “why.”
Blessings always in Jesus name.
