Something interesting occurred to me today…. Now, this may seem obvious, but it got me thinking.. people don’t like truth.
I’ve noticed that most people prefer to be deceived and told what they want to hear rather than hear the truth. You won’t be popular if you speak the truth; people will shun you and ignore you. Take it from me!
It’s fascinating during a time when deception is at an all-time high. That’s how tricky the devil is. It’s almost like a smokescreen is put in front of people; they hear what makes them feel good, they believe it, so they follow it. Anything else, forget it; it can’t be true.
Only hearing what you prefer to hear, rather than looking at the bigger picture, that my friends, is what will get you in trouble.
Or just maybe that’s how it’s supposed to be during these times. It talks about all of this in the bible…. The warnings are all there, written clear as day.
Perhaps though people want to live in an illusion, they feel safer in a fantasy. The problem is, the illusion can’t save you or set you free. Only God can do that.
Learn to be open, be brave, agree to be well, and work on yourself. Don’t ignore what you don’t understand. Don’t follow the popular emotion.
What will you do when the smokescreen comes down, and the truth is revealed? Or has it been, and you don’t want to see it?
So, enter the truth of who you are, the silence within. Accept the truth, don’t run from it. There’s power in seeing different perspectives, not just one.
For it is written
But Jesus answered and said to them, “You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God.
For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.
2 Thessalonians 2:11
For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false,
and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore.
The serpent said to the woman, You surely will not die!
They speak falsehood to one another;
With flattering lips and with a double heart they speak.
1 Timothy 4:1 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons
“Their tongue is a deadly arrow;
It speaks deceit;
With his mouth one speaks peace to his neighbor,
But inwardly he sets an ambush for him.
God loves you, and Jesus does too. Don’t let the devil deceive you and take you away from God.
