Commentary By: Gordon King
It’s not always what is said that really matters but what isn’t said that does!
Have you ever been in a situation where what wasn’t said makes the most dramatic impact on you instead of what was said? I have many times, and it really amazes me at how what was unspoken actually speaks volumes about the reality of the situation, much more than what was actually spoken!
The Devil is in the details, or should I say lack of details?!
The world reports what it wants and doesn’t report what it doesn’t want. The headlines in the news most often don’t actually reflect what is happening in the world, at least not in a truthful and unbiased way.
The news media is led by the world and not by the word of God Almighty! Therefore it tends to side with the world, reporting from a worldly view and not from the perspective of God.
The world reports on social changes which directly impact each and everyone of us in our daily lives. Yet, they fail to even mention the moral implications of such decisions or the long term effects that they will have on society at large!
I’ve personally been searching the news headlines for many years now, and I haven’t seen the news media ever talking about how our society is changing for the worse, at how our world is becoming more wicked, more evil, and more ungodly!
I haven’t heard the media speaking up about the degradation of society, of how the world is headed for doom and gloom if it continues on the trajectory that it is now on.
Not only do we not hear about how the world is headed for disaster (from a moral standpoint), but we do in fact hear them telling us what we need to do in order to divert disaster from “global warming” and “climate change”, both of which in my opinion are man-made events brought forth in order to usher in a One World Government!
Seldom do we hear the truth about Israel and the Jews, about Christianity, Islam, or any other religion. Yet we do hear about the melding of religions, that all ways lead to heaven, that all ways are the right way it just depends upon what you want to believe! This is the world view, the politically correct view, the view that says all ways are right, that all ways are the truth, when actually there is only one truth, one way, one life, Jesus Christ!
We hear of wars and rumors of wars every single day, yet we hear nothing of why or where they are all leading. Nor do we hear about why the world is increasingly antisemitic and antichrist, we hear nothing about the correlation between these things and the increased threats of war in the Middle East against Israel. Nothing about why the nations surrounding Israel are increasingly hostile towards her, or why it just happens to be that Russia and Iran are now sitting at Israel’s doorstep at a time when Israel has once again become a nation, at a time when Israel has become successful, prosperous and wealthy!
If I were Satan then I would be doing the exact same thing! I would be telling people that everything is fine, that it will all work out if we just come together as one nation, under a One World Government. I would be making movies and television shows which indoctrinate people into believing lies, and into believing that I am a good person, that I can be trusted, while on the other hand making a mockery of those who actually believe that I really exist in the first place!
And if I were the Ruler of this world then I would be doing everything in my power to make those of this world submit to me! I would brain-wash them with propaganda, tell them all lies, lead them away from the truth of Jesus Christ! Yes, I would in fact tell them that all of us worship the same God, that all ways in fact lead to heaven no matter what you believe! I would tell them that God didn’t really mean that He is the only way, but that He is merely one way! I would tell them that Jews and Christians are wicked and evil, that they are of the Devil himself! I would cause the world to be at odds with them, to take a stand against them!
If I were the Devil, then I would only tell people what I wanted them to hear. I would leave out the truth or the details of the truth. I would confuse people, I would cause chaos, and I would leave people without real hope by giving them a false sense of hope. I would cause the world to come up with their own worldly opinions as to why the world is the way that it is while at the same time drawing them away from the word of God Almighty!
If I were Satan then I would lead the world to believe that there is no right or wrong, that evil and wickedness doesn’t really exist. I would make people believe that all things are good if we only believe that they are! And finally I would tell people that it’s only when a person does not tolerate everything as being good that he or she is in fact wicked and evil, yep, that’s what I would do if I were Satan!
If I were the Devil then I would convince people that taking the life of their own babies is a good thing, that life doesn’t even begin until the infant is out of the womb, that it’s only a lump of tissue without a spirit or a soul, and even then that it’s the decision of the mother whether or not the baby should live, that it’s the mother’s right and the infant has no God given rights! Yep, that’s what I would do!
And this is the world that we live in folks, a world led by Satan himself! A world in which good is bad and bad is good, a world in which all ways lead to heaven, a world full of lies and hidden truths, a world that celebrates evil and wickedness!
If I were Satan I would lead the world completely astray! I would tell them lies upon lies, I would brain-wash them, I would use propaganda, I would desensitize them to evil and wickedness, and I would condition them into believing more lies! I would discredit God’s word, God’s chosen people, and the church, I would make a mockery of Jesus Christ, I would desecrate the word of God Almighty!
I would fill the void in people’s hearts with false god’s and idols, I would reward them for turning from the truth and believing lies! I would give them a sense and experience of fulfillment without them ever knowing the truth! I would tell them that they can all be like God, and that they can all be gods, that’s what I would do if I were Satan!
If I were Lucifer then I would make people believe all sorts of lies, I would tell them that the most important thing is self, that they must put self first before all things! I would empower them to be full of pride and arrogance, to be self-fulfilling, to be self-absorbed! I would tell people that the loss of self-control is actually a good thing! That in order to reach a new level a person must lose control of himself or herself, that he or she must do whatever it takes to get more, to become more!
This is the world that we are now living in my friends, a world led by Satan, a world in which the truth is either not being told, told with twists and turns, or completely twisted! It’s a world in which lies are considered more important and news worthy then the truth! It’s a world of seduction, a world of deceit and manipulation.
In order for Christians to withstand the lies and the wiles of the Devil we must be grounded in the truth! We must walk in the Spirit in order to know the truth, in order to discern right from wrong, truth from lies! The world is a mess and only getting worse! Evil and wickedness is upon us, demonic spiritual attacks against us are real! Those of the world will be coming against us and even more so the closer we get to the Day of the Lord!
The days are soon coming for censorship, for those who speak the truth to be quieted! For those who proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to be silenced! The days are becoming darker and it’s only a matter of time before it will be illegal to practice Christianity!
With that being said, I also believe that God’s wrath is coming soon upon the wicked, and that the church will be raptured out of here before that time comes! Many Christians do not believe it, they believe that the church will remain on earth during the Tribulation period. But God tells me in His word for us to take comfort in the fact that we will be raptured out of here before these things happen,
1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.“
1 Thessalonians 5:1-2
“But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.“
that we are not destined for His wrath, therefore comfort and edify one another,
1 Thessalonians 5:9
“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,“
1 Thessalonians 5:11
“Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.“
and that we shall be counted worthy to escape the things coming upon the world!
“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.“
It’s of no comfort to any of us if we have to go through any part of the Tribulation period my friends! None whatsoever!!!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
