The events unfolding in our world today are riddled with deception. Each of us should be searching for truth, but it takes some digging and work on our part. We need to ask ourselves, “Is everything happening around us really just about keeping us safe?” Or…is it also about controlling people, destroying individual freedoms, and an anti-Christ agenda?
In addition, why are people who speak against the prominent fear-based narrative being censored on social media today? Why are we not being allowed to see all of the information available, and make our own decisions? Too many people are asleep, afraid, or deceived.
We must realize that deception is subtle. You won’t necessarily see it right away, but it will begin to expose itself as it unfolds. It promotes a certain level of doubt and fear, causing us to question our safety, and cloud our rational thinking. Another reason why it’s so hard to identify the lie is that it contains a measure of truth to it. In the same way rat poison contains 99% food and usually less than 1% poison, the poison is still lethal to the rat and deception is dangerous to us.
Jesus called Satan the Father of Lies. Good and evil are real. In John 8:44, Jesus said to the religious leaders that they were of their Father the devil. Well, it’s no different today. Many leaders in the media, political, business, educational, Hollywood and religious arenas are yielded to selfish ambition, greed, hatred and all sorts of evil. Ask yourself: who am I listening to?
Listen to these verses:
Jeremiah 49:16 it states, “You have been deceived by the fear you inspire in others and by your own pride.”
2 Timothy 3:13 says, “But evil people and imposters will flourish. They will deceive others and will themselves be deceived.
Colossians 2:4 says, “I am telling you this so no one will deceive you with well-crafted arguments.”
Don’t be deceived. Seek, share and speak truth. And above all, walk in the truth.
