The Word makes it clear, that "No man can serve Two-masters" and this earth age is all about choosing One. We are living during the time of Prophecy, that was spoken of old: and this is a great time to be alive! Sorry to report - many are walking in darkness or following Blind-leaders.
Beguile and or deception is a smooth, slow process. Most don't realize it when its happening, but history [real history] doesn't lie.

America became the U.S.A. as a result of an undeclared[illegal] war - on its on citizen: therefore becoming Morally bankrupt on 5/9/1865. It became foreign-owned in 1913 by the Federal Reserve System and Internal Revenue Service; which are private corporations. The U.S. became Economically bankrupt in 3/9/1933 with a secrete filling by the Blind-leaders.
The Great-History-Book shows a type - via Nimrod, and Nebuchadnezzar, and its final destruction in Rev.18:10-13.

"How great is the Darkness?" Very. Great = Dominion, Mighty, Power, Strength. The Prince of Darkness has a monopoly over the things of the world[chaos]. It's currency is debt. It practices Sorcery[drugs] in the daylight. Deception has been multiplied and all around.
The Character of this System, is the same as It's father: John 10:10 Murder, Theft, and Destruction.
