Have you ever wondered why certain entities that do not worship the Almighty God of the Bible have chosen the year 2030 to mark their own “world-changing” goals and predictions?
Why does this exact title from the U.N. read, “Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”? (1)
Why have the so-called “democratic socialists” adopted the year 2030 as the year the world will end as a consequence of so-called man-made climate change? (2)
As a side note, have you ever wondered why it seems only those of us who actually believe in the ENTIRE Bible—including prophecy—are labeled as troublemaking lunatics while those mentioned above get a free pass on their own apocalyptic warnings?
The only answer that fits is that Satan is the “great” counterfeiter of Almighty God.
The Bible indeed describes the devil as a deceptive counterfeiter. During the Tribulation, Satan will assemble his own false trinity—himself, the beast, and the false prophet—in an attempt to counterfeit the true Trinity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Also during the Tribulation, Satan will put his own mark on the foreheads of those who choose to follow him (Revelation 13:16) in an attempt to counterfeit the mark that God puts on the foreheads of the 144,000 Jewish witnesses of the gospel of Christ (Revelation 7:3-4), and also counterfeit the marks that were put on the foreheads of those spared from God’s judgment of Jerusalem (Ezekiel 9:4).
It seems that Satan may already know something of God’s timetable as it relates to His administration of His earthly creation. After all, the devil has had access to the throne of God for at least thousands of earth years (Job 1:6; Revelation 12:10, etc).
Satan endeavors to always stay one step ahead of God in an attempt to deceive unbelievers into following down his path of explanation for the things that are about to come to pass on the entire earth.
Sometime in the not-too-distant future when people start to remember reading – or hearing in the past from believers in God and His Word in the Bible – about what they are experiencing at the beginning of the Tribulation, then the devil will be right there to wag his slick, political antichrist finger in their face, saying:
“You were already warned that this would happen by my disciples who tried to bring peace and equality to the world through global partnership and teamwork. Those troublemakers who vanished should have listened to them!”
No mere mortal knows if 2030 marks some monumental world-changing event in human history, but it certainly gets one thinking, doesn’t it?
“So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9).
“The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12).
