Those who don't understand very deeply are often those we are sent to, but few usually show any signs of real brain activity related to the spiritual things we have to describe. The Words of life we carry are eternal, but they don't always drink from them, being not "thirsty". Hebrews 4:2 helps explain it:
"For indeed we have had good news preached to us, just as they also; but the WORD they heard did not profit them, BECAUSE IT WAS NOT UNITED BY FAITH IN THOSE WHO HEARD. For we who have believed enter that rest..." ( This text specifically discusses the 7th day as a commemoration of Creation, honoring YHWH ).
WORD = TORAH, COMMANDMENTS
Also, Ephesians 2:8-10 explains how our own faith is YHWH's gift, opening our minds to Truth. 2 Timothy 3:5 tells us that people in the last days will be "holding to a FORM of (Elohimliness), although they have denied its power (DYNAMIN, dunamis, dynamic -- intensity, force, mechanism, process, capability, ableness); and avoid such men as these."
This would mean that we should not "give up" until we see they deny the relevance, ability, and authority of the Torah, and they attempt to repel it. This condition of their heart will bring upon them the "strong delusion" because they did not receive a love for the Truth (Torah)
which we see explained at 2 Thess. chapter 2.
The "apostasy" caused a falling-away from Truth long ago, and now the "mystery of iniquity (lawlessness)" is being revealed -- exposing the "lie" (the lie being, "you don't have to obey"). This LIE, spoken to the first woman, is what Christianity is predicated on -- simply because they have not understood what the New Covenant is (having the Torah written on our hearts, being circumcised by the action of the Spirit of Yahushua in us). We become children of YHWH through the Covenant made with Abraham only when we obey the Covenant, doing what Abraham did. His name, Abraham, means "father of nations", and so we may not descend from the tribe of Yahudah, but some other "lost" tribe or house of Israel. Even wild branches can be engrafted among the natural ones, so we must be accepting of all other Children of YHWH who love the Covenant.
