Deception, Deception, Deception!

 

We need to talk about what Jesus said concerning the time we are living in now.

Just as His disciples did, we need to ask Him what are the signs of your coming and of the end the world?

He said many false prophets will arise and many will be deceived.  None of us would ever think that we might be some of those; that we somehow may have been led astray by the slight of men.  Perhaps not aware of it.

Could it be that so many of us have become so desensitized by all of the violence and rage our eyes have feasted on?

I recently walked past a place where rock music videos were playing.  I’m shocked every time I see something like that.

It is hard for me to grasp that most cannot see just how demonic, how spiritually wicked people are portraying themselves today.  These creatures, these spirits, are hidden from people.

Many of us are hoping for a better day in our land; and in some ways, it is going to come.  It is my sincere belief that God has given our people a space to repent.

He has given the church one more chance to be what it was meant to be.  Not some watered down version, or in some traditional measure, but in full power and demonstration.  It’s a chance for we the people, to once more love each other as we did.

God help me to say this kindly, but if we are not truly walking in and seeking to follow the Spirit, we don’t have a clue as to what the Holy Ghost intends to do in this hour.

I have never in my life, seen a time such as this, when many things just do not make any sense anymore.  May I stop and ask, just who was it who divided us in the way it’s said that we are?

Whom did we believe to give us answers, to tell us what’s really true?

Do we know why a true depth in the Spirit is coming back to God’s people?

First of all, it is His will.  It’s the true sign of those who know His voice, and know how to follow.

Secondly, it’s because we are going to have to have this to survive and navigate the days we are in now.  We will simply be overcome without it.

What about the beginning of sorrows?  Did He not say, that evil men, would wax worse and worse.  Because there is so much evil and wickedness, our love may grow cold.

It may sound mundane and trite now, but our traditions and the commandments of men, will not carry us through such a serious spiritual battle.

The world needs the church; which is the people who truly follow Christ.  If there ever was a time, we absolutely need to know the difference between what is good, and what is bad, in the church, and out.

Did we not once say that that the world was waiting on us to bring them the Gospel, and show them the true love of this man Jesus?

I don’t normally say it this way, but you better know the truth for yourself.  We can no longer continue to depend on someone else to lead us in the way we should go, and supply our spiritual strength.

What if they are not truly following the Spirit; having their own plans and not truly feeding the things that the flock so desperately needs?

Deception is afoot and many don’t even know it.  Our experience with God is a one on one reality.  No one will stand before Him, in my place.

  1. PREACH THE WORD!
    TO QUOTE YOU: We can no longer continue to depend on someone else to lead us in the way we should go, and supply our spiritual strength. [I agree 100%… ]

    *** And we can’t depend upon one person to make things better… one committee can’t do this… We must all do our part as God commands… We must be obedient to His Word! I believe many are picking and choosing [maybe out of fear, greed, ambition, flattery, etc] what they want to speak rather than allowing the Holy Spirit to direct their path. [We have all fallen short…]
    ***Also… We must not allow satan to intimidate us into silence. God never said preach [teach] this but don’t preach [teach] that when it comes to speaking God’s Word of Truth! There is a right way and a better way to do things… [God’s Way]!
    ***We must speak God’s Truth in love [especially when moved by the Holy Spirit] and the Holy Spirit is always speaking! Mark 6:34 (NASB) When Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He felt compassion for them because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and He began to teach them many things.
    ***The message God put on my heart is: DON’T LET YOUR CHILDREN GO THROUGH LIFE AS SHEEP WITHOUT A SHEPHERD OR THEY WILL BECOME PREY TO WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING!
    ***2 Timothy 4:2-5 (NKJV) Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.  But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. [We must endure… and do the work…]
    ***GOD IS SAYING TO EACH ONE… FULFILL [YOUR] MINISTRY!
    We need a move of God; and I believe God is moving! Will we be ready? Will we be willing?  Will we go.?!

    ***Isaiah 6:8 (NLT) Then I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who will go for us?”

    I said, “Here I am. Send me.”
