“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst,” John 6:35.
“And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat,” Exodus 16:13-15.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve noticed that there is a litany of various reports and news stories that seem to always be questionable and way off in left field these days.
Every day we are flooded with story after story that we can read about on the internet. One could easily wonder what is true and what is not. Many or most, of these stories repudiate what is regularly said on the five O’clock News, and claim that the government and/ or secret societies, are out to get us and plan our demise.
Having said this, I’m certainly not naive about how mainstream news stations portray various events throughout the world, but on the other hand, that doesn’t mean that we are being fed a lie straight from the mouth of Big Brother.
Back in 1947 we knew of the events in Roswell, New Mexico and how an alien life form had been found, and had been hidden in a secret location away from the general public. We can still find pictures and stories that collaborate this account. I’m not saying that this event didn’t take place, but this is just one of thousands of different instances that claim unusual sightings, hidden agendas, and secret societies.
We have the group called Info wars that is constantly reporting on various conspiracies that repudiate the killings at Sandy Hook, and a whole host of other horrific events that have taken place. Photos are disclosed that show doctored photos of mothers who lost a child in the shooting and that the same lady is seen in another shooting in the land.
Tell these stories to those who lost a child in the killing, and then find out the truth of the matter. Surely, they say, the government or some other agency set it all up. The stories are endless and feed into the minds and hearts of many, and create a paranoiac mist that is slowly seeping into the lives of believers and non-believers alike.
The ivory-colored train cars that are now sitting along the tracks in the south, await the orders of our Commander-in-Chief, for the day when the innocent will be housed within them, shielding them, or worse yet, holding them as prisoners from the nuclear onslaught this is coming.
I had a great uncle who was certain that the astronauts never landed on the moon. He was convinced that they simply found some rocks in Arizona, and said that they found them on the moon. So perhaps it isn’t one giant step for mankind – maybe it’s actually one giant leap backwards when we swallow the lies and eat the tasty, conspiracy morsels.
God wants us to be as wise as serpents, especially in the hour that we are living in. He wants us to be prepared and to be ready, no matter what comes our way – hell or high water.
But… He doesn’t want us to live in fear, nor to swallow every story that we hear. Eventually a lie can be told so many times, that many then actually believe it to be true. Facts are thrown out the window, and these stories become the guiding light for many.
God offers us the true manna that comes down from heaven. Jesus, Yeshua, is that bread of life and He will sustain us. These other stories and conspiracies offer a different type of food for our diet, but they will never sustain us. They may seem like tasty morsels at first. They may seem to be sweet to our palette, but in the end they will be bitter and will only lead to rottenness in our bones.
Feed on the true word of God. Let it alone satisfy you. It is the pure honey comb; it is strong meat for the mature. The children of Israel got tired of the manna that was found every morning.
Eventually, they wanted something else in their diet, and so God gave them quail. Don’t get tired of the word of God — there is no other substitute.
