Little children, let us not love in word or speech but in deed and in truth. By this we shall know that we are of the truth, and reassure our hearts before him whenever our hearts condemn us; for God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything. ~ 1 John 3:18-20
Its impossible to overstate the danger of the times in which we are living. When so many of us are willing to avoid, deny, reject and ignore the truth about the times, we feed, affirm, validate, and strengthen the grip the lie has on our lives. It’s a little like the young idealist elected to public office with the most honorable intention to serve the public with integrity. Coffee…the Beltway drug, becomes the lunch, followed by Broadway tickets and a trip to Paris, and soon the point of no return. Pick a name in the Class of those who rule our lives, and I’ll show you wealth unimaginable to the rest of us. Every single one of them owned, lock, stock, and barrel, by the lie. Yet, every single one of them can be traced back to that first cup of coffee…when they were free men and women with nobler intention.
We hear about the “cost of freedom”, but nobody that I’m aware of talks about the cost of truth. That the truth will set you free, is more widely known than Garfield’s addendum, but first it will make you miserable. Its rather like the Sun. Some of us can work in the harsh glare of the Sun with no sunscreen at all. Others require an 8, 30, or even 50 block protection. Or Hotdogs…we have all been advised that seeing how they’re made would put an end to our consumption. But none of us dared to look, for fear of ending that consumption. Kind of exactly why “my friend” from last weeks SMTU didn’t want to know the grooming truth of intent behind “Book Club”. There is no in between my friend; every single one of us reading these words either belongs to the truth…or belongs to the lie. And this is absolute fact, regardless of how many good deeds and consecutive church-going Sundays we notch. Even (get thee behind me) Peter missed the Messiah until he got Him, and blinked thrice before he saw…
“Continually restate to yourself what the purpose of your life is. The destined end of man is not happiness, nor health, but holiness…The one thing that matters is whether a man will accept the God who will make him holy. At all costs a man must be rightly related to God…” ~ Oswald Chambers, Holiness to the Lord
There are no truer words you could possibly read than the fifty-two you have just now read. And yet how many of us bargain with ourselves to follow these words only to a point, beyond which we dare not cross? Let me help you out. For many of us, that “point” might be choosing to avoid telling some poor soul we work with or for, the truth about who they are. Now myself, on the other hand…
After 200,000 years, we need Triversity to “help the community learn about sexuality and gender”? We figured out the math to put a man on the moon in the sixties, and now we can’t figure out how to count votes and which bathroom we belong in. Congruence ~ agreement or harmony; compatibility. Good luck with that! You’re upset for being a man who’s not accepted as a woman? You should try being a White Male Conservative Christian for a day…here in the Socialist Republic of New York.
…will follow them (as those who know me will tell you) to my own bitter end, for the glory He has promised.
As it turns out, the very same people telling us that man is powerful enough to make himself a woman, are the same people telling us that /we/they/it/he/she/zir are powerful enough to destroy our planet as well. Fortunately, our President and at least one advisor to the Australian Prime Minister know exactly who these people are. In fact, I’d say the average world-wide Joe is waking up to who these people are, judging by the fires in Paris (spreading into Holland), and the Pro-Trump Mexican people demanding the Caravans go back to where they came from. Soros in any language now means devil. This all, as Brussels is running out of money, Mueller has run out of cards (because President Trump is holding them all)…and his stock just keeps climbing (regardless of what Chuck Todd, Morning Joe, and the Fake News Network try to sell us). Guess what…none of this matters!
Please consider two very different hypothetical outcomes to the Deep State drama playing out before our eyes. Scenario 1) Mueller gets impeachable goods on President Trump, Pelosi’s House Impeaches, and enough RINO Republicans in the Senate go along to Impeach 45. Deep State wins, we lose our Constitution and with it our freedom. Scenario 2) President Trump pulls the declassification trigger on all FISA and related documents, fully un-redacted. The entire Deep State and all those culpable in the treasonous failed coup are tried by military tribunal, executed or sent to Gitmo for life. We win, justice is restored, and the Republic (and entire world) is saved. Question: Does truth itself change or does it stay the same, whichever outcome turns out to be the case? Isn’t our relationship to truth as fixed as truth itself?
I see far too many of my own like-minded friends down in the dumps these days because they allow some of the demoralizing MSM narrative seep in, and worry that the uninformed voters will bring about Scenario 1…rather than focus on truth, their relationship with it, and MOST importantly, “the purpose of (their) life.” I’ll leave you with the following observation. If you study the faces of Conservatives vs Progressives, you will see a happier, healthy, and more youthful appearance in the former over their counterparts. The reason is simple because belonging to truth is simple. I believe that Scenario 2 will prevail because belonging to the lie is an enormous burden that takes its toll on all carriers over time. Trust in God, and keep the faith. This should turn out to be a very eventful week my friends.
