Commentary By: Gordon King
The world is quickly becoming a place where it seems that no one can be trusted to tell you the truth anymore! From doctors and scientists, to government leaders and politicians, from the news media to the social media, they all lie, they all seem to have an agenda at hand.
We are now being told things which are being labeled as the truth, things which go against true science, things which can either end our life prematurely or have very serious consequences to our health and well being. And if you actually seek the truth and attempt to spread it then you are labeled as a liar, an instigator, and spreading “misinformation”. This is the way of the Left my friends, projecting their own evil ways upon those that do not follow along with them, this is the way of Socialists and Marxists, this was the way of Adolph Hitler, and this is the way of Satan himself! He was a liar and a thief from the beginning, the father of all lies.
So since I believe that we cannot trust most government officials, scientists, doctors, or anyone standing in a position of authority to tell us the truth about what is really going on in this world, then it is up to us individually to sift through the mountains of information, whether lies or truth, and make informed decisions for ourselves. But we cannot do it of our own ability, no, we must use the power of the Holy Spirit within us to be able to discern right from wrong, and truth from lies.
It’s very sad that this is what things have come down to, but they have. It is sad but at the same time very telling about the days that we are living in. These things (signs) tell me that we are nearing the end, that the culmination of all things are at a head, a pinnacle, a point in time when some very significant things written of in bible prophecy are about to take place!
The return of Jesus Christ coming in the clouds to meet Christians in the air is near, even at the door my friends, the rapture of the church! That also means that the Tribulation period is about to begin, it’s all falling into place.
God told us that things in this world would get very ugly before He returns, that we would be living in perilous times, and say it isn’t so now. Evil will increase, Christians will endure more and more persecution from the world, and the hearts of many will grow cold. Lawlessness will abound, deception will run rampant, and those being deceived will believe the lies because their conscience has been seared with a hot iron (and I haven’t even mentioned race wars, kingdom wars, famines, pestilences, earthquakes, etc.)!
1 Timothy 4:1-2
“Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron,”
Speaking lies in hypocrisy, we see that happening everyday now my friends, people, especially politicians, doctors, scientists, news media, etc. telling lies why they themselves do not follow the same principles that they preach! Following deceiving spirits and the doctrines of demons, spreading lies and deception on a grand scale, a worldwide scale, of a magnitude that we have never ever seen before in the history of mankind!
“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them.”
We are being told one thing when the true science actually tells us just the opposite! When those that deceive see the actual facts they either ignore them or discount them as lies, even when the straight facts are staring at them right in front of their face!
Who do you trust anymore? Who can you believe? The only one that you can truly believe and trust anymore is God Almighty! He is the truth, and through His Holy Spirit we can discern right from wrong, and the truth from lies!
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.”
Do not be afraid, do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you!
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
Listen to God, walk in the spirit, do the will of the Lord in all that you do, for our labor is not in vain in the Lord!
1 Corinthians 15:58
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.”
Let us walk in the spirit and not the flesh, for when we walk in the spirit then we are pleasing to God, but when we walk in the flesh then we grieve the Holy Spirit. Let us be found pleasing to God so that the Holy Spirit is allowed by us to do His work in and through us, so that He can guide us in all truth and tell us things to come.
It is not ours to condemn those that sin, however, as believers it is ours to uncover the darkness and to spread the truth!
“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), 10 finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.12 For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”
We are told to walk as children of light, walk in the spirit, to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather to expose them! We are the children of the light, therefore we are to expose the darkness by our light, the light of Christ, to make manifest by the light. Many believers wonder why I talk so much about what is happening in the world today, about all of the lies and deceptions, well, that’s the reason my friends in a nutshell (besides warning people of what is happening and ringing a warning bell), I am exposing the darkness, the deception, I’m making it manifest!
The very definition of the word manifest by dictionary.com is:
readily perceived by the eye or the understanding; evident; obvious; apparent; plain
It is to expose the lies and deceptions for what they truly are, to explain them in plain terms so that they are readily perceived by the eye or the understanding, to make evident, obvious, and apparent. The Left is very good at lying, at deceiving, at making evil things sound good, and they are just as good at transferring their own deception upon those telling the truth and uncovering the truth, this is one of their main tactics in warfare my friends, so beware!
Don’t just trust anyone who says anything, don’t just believe what you hear from the authorities without first seeking the Lord and His word. Seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit within, and trust in God!
“Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us. Selah”
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
