The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth asked an interesting question. How many believers would He find on earth when He returns.. The rhetorical answer can be inferred to be “not many.” Why? Because of false conversions.
A false conversion occurs in the following instances:
1. A person makes a decision to “accept” Jesus and then ends up boasting, “I am saved because I chose to follow Jesus.” Often this person has repeated a sinner’s prayer or responded to a minister’s invitation to “walk forward” at the close of the sermon. There is also no evidence of repentance. Nor is their evidence that the believer understood either the cross or the resurrection of Jesus Christ at the time of the alleged salvation experience.
2. A person assumes because his or her family are professing, churchgoing Christians, and since he or she has attended church from birth, that he or
she is “saved.”
3. A Charismatic/Pentecostal person has sought the Holy Ghost through the manifestation of the speaking in tongues. Since the believer actually had a “tongue manifestation,” an assumption is made that the person is saved.
What I have uncovered through deliverance counseling, is this.
When a counterfeit birth has taken place, the devil steps in, represented by a fallen angel who now calls himself “Jesus Sananda Immanuel.” You can either obtain a copy of my book, “The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us,” or google with Sananda’s name, and you will find that Sananda claims that he has infiltrated the entire organized church. Consequently, when prayers and worship are offered, it is Sananda, and not Jesus Christ of Nazareth who is unknowingly appealed to. So in other words, the believer is actually practicing idolatry without realizing what has occurred and who he or she is worshiping.
If I were a betting person, I would put all of my savings on the expectation that 90% of the people who sincerely believe that they are born again fall in one of the three categories cited. Yet there is a fourth category. It includes those who have had supernatural experiences which included sin, the cross, godly sorrow with the bodily resurrection of the Lord either minimized, assumed, or not a part of the experience AT All. This category adds another 5% to those who have had a false conversion. The other 5 % were born again BEFORE they went to church, either in their homes, at an airport, etc.
How many of the people who have had a false conversion are of the elect of God? I don’t know. I suspect between 25-75%. The rest are damned anyway because God did not choose them.
