Who Loves The Truth?
Psalms 25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
Psalms 86:11 Teach me thy way, O LORD; I will walk in thy truth: unite my heart to fear thy name.
Today's society is a sea of lies, where truth is coming at more precious price everyday. Propaganda on the news, endless lies from the pulpit and it enters even into personal relationships where "appearances" count for the most among many especially in dominantly narcissistic American culture where substance and flash counts for everything while the inside is empty. Today to be a speaker of truth, often does not give one an easy life. The rejection can be harsh. Many hate the truth and do not want to hear it.
I know there are many sincere good people out there, who try to live decent lives, who love their families and friends, who are lost or swimming adrift in false churches, just not knowing any better. I sometimes do think of these people and many I love and care about fit into this category, and think how do they not know? Do they ever question or inside wonder about things? Hopefully those who are born again will listen to the warnings of the Holy Spirit as things progress out there in the world.
2 Corinthians 4:2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
I try to warn and teach who I can, but I know people are in different places and we all can take time to learn something. In today's world, even looking at the whole network of lies meant to dissuade people from all varieties of media, it is even a miracle of God, that some of us can step outside it all and see what is truly going on. God will reward those who seek his truth in all sincerity. Those who love God also desire His truth and His Word. It sometimes is alarming though as someone who has not been in a church for some years, to look from the "outside" into "church culture" and notice how much of the same lies, in so many places have enticed so many, and for those who are not fooled, but sit there anyway, fearing lost of position and a social place. Even in the Catholic church, I knew those who at times allowed their thoughts to question the place, but the social pressures to stay and "not rock the boat" kept them sitting the pew. Where is the love of truth there, when some even know they are being lied to but just accept it?
That said, I do not try to be a "I know more then you" Pharisee, I had time to study many did not share, and had years in the UU studying comparative religions, and my time in the UU, basically was a immersion in the practice micro-cosm of the one world church to come. Add to that the Catholic upbringing and knowledge, and then bring in salvation in Jesus Christ and why wouldn't I with the Holy Spirit leading the way, figure out some of their tricks? When UU, I was told, "no one ever leaves the UU to become a Christian". In fact I was told I was an extreme rarity and perhaps that is true. There is still a lot I do not know.
God knows each individual and what they have been told, and what they know and who they are and where they are at. Salvation of course and being born born again is what counts, but the Bible tells us this:
Luke 12:48 For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
There too we must preach the truth in love to those God sends us to.
Eph 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ:
I sometimes ask why some of us have been shown some things. It is not an easy task, and at the worse times feel like a burden. There are times lately I want to shut down this blog, and walk away and leave all this behind but always ask God first what He wants me to do. If He tells me to keep at it, I will obey. I have grief watching this stuff, grief for the lost, grief for those being deceived, grief for my years being lost in false churches, grief for all the confessing "Christian" world in general seeing the abyss it is being marched off to. Realizing the endless phonies out there, who play games and ripping the veil off all the evil, to try and warn people, it is not easy and is often painful.
You wonder about all those we have found out working for Lucifer, in their endless networks. Why do so few actually 'escape'? Why do we even cheer to see one possibly escape only to find out he is a phony too? Do they not fear what will come in eternity? There is no fear of God there, they "sell-out' for fame, a name, money or another variety of motivations. They must be so seared they hate the truth. Those in rebellion against God have no love of truth.
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
In my book only someone with a totally seared conscience and a certain psychopathic evil would stand there, preaching "bible truths" all over the world and then be hobnobbing with people helping to build up the new world order or being involved themselves and it's infrastructure. How many preachers out there does that now apply to? Seemingly hordes of them. One can even ask how can such types sleep at night, the conscience has to be burnt to a crisp.
I believe that there are secret societies, masonic and luciferian orders under the Pope's authority, all involved out there to deceive millions. But there are those on many lower levels who have become part of the lies and shut down all conscience to serve the father of lies and obey men rather then God and listen to the world in telling them what to do and be.
It comes down to this, Does someone love God and His Truth or not? I do thank God for the opportunity to be able to warn people and to even know the things I found out. If not for the Holy Spirit, I could be snoozing in a Calvary Chapel pew now. We should all have a thankful spirit for God rescuing us out of the endless pits of deception Satan has set up in this world. We need to be bold for Jesus Christ, even when it is not easy, and even feels scary at times.
1Sa 12:24 Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great [things] he hath done for you.
