The twisting of the truth, lies, and deception are not only commonplace in today’s society they are rampant! They have become the “norm” as the mainstream media portrays itself as the main source for up to the minute news for accurate information regarding what is happening in the world today.
We now hear of “fake news” being disseminated to the masses on a grand scale from news organizations who claim to speak the truth. Yet many of them if not most of them not only twist the truth but actually make up stories, they spread “fake news” around the world!
It’s difficult to discern anymore just what is the truth and what is a lie, to discern between twisted truth and the real truth. For example, I have heard from the beginning of Donald Trump’s presidency that one of his main objectives was to move the American embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, yet now I am hearing stories that he will not. So what is the truth? I for one believe that President Trump knows what he is planning to do regarding this situation, however I also believe that he likes to keep some things unknown until he actually does it, regardless of what the mainstream media says about President Trump not being able to keep his mouth shut! Donald Trump is not a stupid man, he knows what the media is up to and will not play into their hands.
The mainstream media is very liberal, a progressive organization, pro Obama, pro Islam, pro One World Government, pro One World Religion, anti Israel, anti Trump, and anti-Christ! It will do and say whatever it has to in order to control the masses and promote their evil agenda. This media is led by powers seeking to destroy America and the Western world as we know it.
These forces are seeking to destroy Western ideology, to control the masses, and to overcome the good in the world. All of this is leading to the revealing of the Antichrist and the beginning of the Tribulation Period!
These are evil forces causing chaos, confusion, and division. They seek to destroy from within, they seek to divide, and they seek to plant seeds of unrighteousness!
Why do we see such animosity towards President Trump, towards Christianity, and towards the Jews?! Why are we now witnessing riots in the streets, hatred towards what is good, and love of what is unrighteous? Why do these people who claim to be “tolerant” become violent in their actions of protest, performing acts of aggression against those that they oppose, and performing illegal protests in the streets, blocking traffic, setting cars on fire, and damaging private property?!
The following is from a CNN report during an anti-Trump protest after the election:
“If we don’t fight, who is going to fight for us? People had to die for your freedom where we’re at today. We can’t just do rallies, we have to fight back. There will be casualties on both sides. There will be, because people have to die to make a change in this world”
Not only are many of these anti Trump protestors performing illegal acts many are calling for bloodshed. These people are being led by evil spirits, spirits set out to deceive, to cause chaos, confusion, and destruction! Spirits which are anti-Christ and unholy.
Lawlessness is out of control, people have become proud, arrogant, self-serving, egotistical, unrighteous, unholy, out of control, denying the power of God! We are told by the apostle Paul that in the last days this is how it would be, that these would be perilous times.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!“
Isn’t this also how we now see the mainstream media: lovers of themselves, without self-control, proud, blasphemers, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God?
The masses are being deceived from the truth, people are being fed lies, and the truth that they do tell has been twisted to become lies. Mass media has brain washed society at large, it has infiltrated the minds and the hearts of many. People are being fed lies and are eating it up! They have succumbed to the wiles of the devil, they have become blinded to the truth, their hearts have been hardened, their eyes blinded, and their ears are deaf!
It’s very difficult these days to know what we are being told is the truth and what is lies. We must have discernment from the Lord. We must walk in the spirit not the flesh, when we walk in the flesh then we cannot discern what is the truth, but when we walk in the spirit then we can see the truth and the things of the spirit.
There is a battle inside of each one of us who are believers, a battle between the flesh and the spirit. The flesh pulls us in one direction while the spirit pulls us in another. Unbelievers do not have this battle, for everything that they do is of the flesh! Therefore we know that we are truly God’s when we have this battle within us, it’s a sign that we have been born-again. Unbelievers may at times have a sense of this battle if they follow some righteous values, it’s called a conscience, but a believer struggles with this day in and day out.
I don’t always know where to look for true information regarding what is happening in the world around us, I am referring to news sources. And the more that time goes by the more difficult it becomes. However, I do know where to go for the truth, God’s written word! We must test all things against the word of God, if it does not hold up then it is not the truth. We must also follow the lead of the Holy Spirit within us, knowing that His wisdom and guidance are perfect in every way!
The only way to know the truth is by accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, there is no other way.
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
