2 Thessalonians 2:9-12
9 The coming of the lawless one is based on Satan’s working, with all kinds of false miracles, signs, and wonders, 10 and with every unrighteous deception among those who are perishing. They perish because they did not accept the love of the truth in order to be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a strong delusion so that they will believe what is false, 12 so that all will be condemned—those who did not believe the truth but enjoyed unrighteousness.
We are all in a Matrix thinking that that is the true reality but unless Jesus frees us from sin and shows us that He is the true reality we will stay there. Atheists and those who don’t believe in Jesus Christ as the only way for salvation are in a Matrix which is an illusion.
In life, there’s only two choices, one keeps you in the Matrix and the other frees you from it. The two choices are Jesus or the world. The whole world is under Satan’s Matrix, he convinces them that the life now is what will always be and there’s nothing else after death.
The agents as seen in the movie “The Matrix” are demons who can fight very well and one has to train very hard through knowing scripture like Jesus, when He quoted it to defeat Satan in the wilderness. The powers that one has comes from the Holy Spirit who enables us to live righteously to please God and defeat Satan’s fallen angels. In the movie, the actors dodge bullets which is a reference to Satan’s deadly arrows. The agents have an ear piece that communicates with their leader. In the same way all demons are connected through hierarchy and relays all messages through their superiors that goes straight to the Red Dragon. We as Christians must try with the gospel in hand to bring people out of the Matrix by waking them up just like in the movie.
