Many read the Bible in search of signs pointing to the timing of the return of Christ. Yet, many prophesied dates have come and gone. And Evil, while more prevalent today, is and always has been a part of the sinful nature of man. While those who’ve been a part of a church understand, to some degree, the Bible’s prophecy of apostasy as end-time events, they apparently still fail to understand the real dilemma. As an element of judgment,  the worst thing that can happen to anyone is to be under the HEARING OF FALSEHOOD:

Mt 24:24  For there shall arise FALSE CHRISTS, and FALSE PROPHETS, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if [] possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

Mat 24:4-5 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man DECEIVE YOUFor many shall come IN MY NAME, saying, I AM []; and shall deceive many.

Lu 6:22  Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you [from their company], and shall reproach [you], and CAST OUT YOUR NAME AS EVIL, for the Son of man’s sake.

Isa 5:20  Woe unto them that CALL EVIL GOOD, AND GOOD EVIL; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Mr 3:29  But he that shall BLASPHEME AGAINST THE HOLY GHOST hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

Jer 23:32  Behold, I [am] against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err BY THEIR LIES, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore they shall not profit this people at all, saith the LORD.

Jer 23:31  Behold, I [am] against the prophets, saith the LORD, that USE THEIR TONGUES, AND SAY, HE SAITH.

2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should BELIEVE A LIE:

Isa 4:1  And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will EAT OUR OWN BREAD, and wear our OWN APPAREL: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.

In order to understand the end, one must first understand its nature. Yet, in judgment, the one sign that should reveal Christ is denied by God. But only HE can selectively reveal this to His People. That’s a real dilemma. In other words, God is the only ONE who can open our spiritual eyes to see the threat: it's the NAME of Christ that is under attack in judgment.  Why is that a threat? Because “Faith cometh by hearing”; and if God leaves anyone under the hearing of falsehood, all hope is lost because their gospel, however appealing it seems, can’t bring salvation.
