What Does The Bible Say Deception In The Last Days By Devil? The Bible tells us it must happen because Jesus told his disciples when his disciples wanted to know.
“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”(Matthew 24:3)
And Jesus warned us to stay ahead of this, as long as this world goes to the end, people will deceive people, nations will fight against nations, and deception will continue.
And as proof, we can see today. And at that time some hypocrites and devils will come and say that I am Jesus but the Lord Jesus has told us how He will come.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen”(Revelation 1:7)
Matthew 24:24-25(KJV)“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”

They will show many miracles and wonders which will seem that Christ has come but they are false prophets.
Matthew 24:4-5(KJV)“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many”

Matthew 7:15(KJV)“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves”

1 John 4:1(KJV)“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world”
Explanation:- All the spirits are not from God. Many evil spirits are working on this earth. They are the fallen angels. They have some power to do miracles but Christians should not listen to them. They are deceivers and will come to separate the believers from God.
2 Timothy 3:13(KJV)“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived”
Explanation:- Before the second coming of Jesus many evil men will arise and they will claim that they are Christ. Thus they will deceive people. But the Scripture reminds us to be patient till the end of Jesus’s second coming.
1 Timothy 4:1(KJV)“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils”
Explanation:- In the last days, many believers will leave from their faith. They will not stay to the Lord till the end. They will run after the false prophets who will claim themselves as Jesus.
But we must be careful to identify the true Jesus. He will come on this earth just as mentioned in the scripture.
2 Corinthians 11:3(KJV)“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ”
Explanation:- Paul expressed his fees upon the believers of Corinth. He says that the way serpent deceived Eve, at the last time many will be deceived by the false prophets.
He warned them of the consequences if they run after them. They will be like Jesus but actually, they are not. They will come to snatch the children of God from their permanent position.
Matthew 24:11(KJV)“And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many”
Explanation:- Jesus has given the incidents that will take place in the last days. He knows that many false prophets will deceive his people. So, he warned them not to run after such prophets who will come in his name.
Their main intention will be to misguide the people of God from their faith. By doing so they will cause spiritual death to the believers.
Mark 13:22(KJV)“For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect”
Explanation:- In those last times, false prophets will show many miracles which will help them to attract people near them.
But the Christians should not follow them as they are not Christ. They will take many people even from believers a large part will be moved from their faith.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15(KJV)“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works”
Explanation:- Satan will try his best to separate God’s people from their faith and he will try to lead them according to his own way to destroy. Believers should be careful to choose the path while they take every step of their life.
Because at the end time many will come in the name of Christ and they will also do many miracles which might deceive believers to think of Christ.
2 Timothy 4:3-4(KJV)“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables”

They will run after the false teachings which are not mentioned in the Bible. Believers should read the Bible regularly so that they might understand the truth which is recorded in the Bible.
Revelation 21:8(KJV)“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”
Explanation:- All the unrighteous who did not give glory to the Lord will be cast into the lake fire. They will be tormented there forever.
The Lord says that they will be punished according to their works. Idolaters, liars, and sorcerers will receive much pain in hell.
1 John 2:18(KJV)“Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time”
Explanation:- Antichrist will come before Jesus’s second coming. That is why he warned all of his disciples to be alert from them.
We also should be careful as we are moving forward to the last days. If we do not pay heed then we have to pay its cost in hell forever.
Matthew 24:34(KJV)“Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled”
