If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load. Nevertheless, the one who receives instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor. Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:3-10 NIV
For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Galatians 6:8 NKJV
Deception is defined as the act of deceiving, fraud or artifice (trickery, guile)
Corruption is defined as being corrupt–moral perversion, depravity, corrupt and dishonest proceedings, and bribery.
Knowing that God sees and knows all things, just how long would a person who practices deception and corruption think their actions will remain hidden? For we know, Holy Spirit will reveal the hidden things–if we are willing to hear and see the truth of the matter. However, when people are blinded by misplaced loyalty, they often miss (evidence, proof) that is right in front of them because they choose not to believe what they hear and see. For if they dared to see and hear truth (through credible sources), they would have to admit being wrong about misplacing their loyalty in one who did not deserve it.
We have seen much deception revealed in the last few days by the person elected to govern this country. For most of us with eyes to see–this is not surprising–we have seen the deceptive practices exercised throughout the campaign. The distraction of calling Hillary Clinton crooked and a liar when it was actually him who is crooked and the liar. It would appear that the corruption began in June where bribes and promises were made to all who would assure his election. Throughout the campaign, he spouted his plans to deceive, but not many–people, were able to discern the meaning behind the words.
The rigged election that he was “supposedly afraid would be stolen” was his plan to rig and steal the election.
His boast at one of his rallies that, “perhaps the campaigning should stop and the election just be given to him” said volumes.
The constant repetition of lies and falsehoods that denigrated Hillary–with the most salacious tenets–promoted as “evidence” when there was none–with all the lies debunked through credible sources (House investigations, FBI investigation–all led by Republicans). Though the evidence presented proved no wrong-doing, people continued to believe the lies promoted by Fox News, Breitbart, Alex Jones, manipulated emails leaked by a vengeful man–Julian Assange, and deceived church leaders.
But it was a corrupt strategy designed to deceive the gullible (the same type of strategy used by all the madmen of the world to gain positions to rule as dictators) and it did–deceive the gullible. Those of us who see truth provided in the Spirit knew and understood what was happening, but try as we might–the enemy’s tactics prevailed–for a season.
That season–of sowing corruption and deception is being exposed almost daily with his attempts to exaggerate his greatness in saving jobs with Carrier and in the alleged job creation from Masayoshi Son and the Softbank Group. The truth has already been revealed and the only thing he accomplished with Carrier was to give the company a $7 million tax break (at tax payer expense) and the jobs–most of them, are still headed for Mexico. The deal for through Softbank was already in the works before the election and had nothing to do with drumpf being president–as he alleged (outright lied).
The proof–as they say–is in the pudding. The final outcome of all the chaos and distraction and dishonesty and corruption will be revealed and those who looked to a man as their savior will be distraught as they come to grips with the fact that he never had their best interests at heart, but his own bank account. Time Magazine said it best–president of a divided nation–no unity or attempt to unify–will ever be accomplished with him as a leader of a “free nation.”
Some may trust in chariots and horses–people and things–but my trust remains firmly rooted in The Lord and no matter what the corrupt and the deceivers do–He will keep us on the alert and ready to push back with truth as He reveals it to us.
Lord, thank You for Truth and the desire to promote it and not lies.
