How Are We Walking?

How Are We Walking?

The elder, To the lady chosen by God and to her children, whom I love in the truth—and not I only, but also all who know the truth—because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever: Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love. It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love. I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take them into your house or welcome them. Anyone who welcomes them shares in their wicked work. 2 John 1:1-1-11 NIV

On this journey–life–no matter where we start or how we finish–if we never learn to walk in truth and in love; our lives will be meaningless.

To walk in truth is to always seek truth and turning away from lies and falsehoods and promoting truth–even if we don’t agree with truth–we cannot change truth for if we do; we create lies. With the lies people walk in deception and soon the deception becomes a way of life and when those walking in deception, choose to deceive others, their lives–demonstrate they do not know God.

To walk in love is to receive God’s love and allow it to over flow onto everyone with whom we come into contact. This does not mean we have to agree with everyone, but we love enough to disagree, agreeably, never allowing love to stop flowing. If love does not dwell within us, we cannot love others. If we cannot love others, a great void develops in our lives and we cease to know how to be affectionate even though we long for affection. If we are unable to love self–we are certainly incapable of loving others for love does not hold grudges, does not abuse, does not misuse, does not create chaos and confusion and love will not hold onto lies or lead one to lie.

Therefore, if we are truly walking in the light of Jesus Christ--we know that love and truth walk together–hand in hand–and one without the other–creates an emptiness that can only be filled with the love of Christ.

If we see a person not walking in truth and love–they are walking in darkness and darkness keeps one seeing clearly the direction and path that God would have them walking. Seek truth and accept God’s love and make sure, the path taken in life, is the path were truth and love and walk together, not separately.

No Hiding Place!

No Hiding Place!

“Who is it he is trying to teach? To whom is he explaining his message? To children weaned from their milk, to those just taken from the breast?For it is: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there.”Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people,to whom he said, “This is the resting place, let the weary rest”; and, “This is the place of repose”— but they would not listen. So then, the word of the LORD to them will become: Do this, do that, a rule for this, a rule for that; a little here, a little there— so that as they go they will fall backward; they will be injured and snared and captured. Therefore hear the word of the LORD, you scoffers who rule this people in Jerusalem.You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death, with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement. When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by, it cannot touch us, for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic. I will make justice the measuring line and righteousness the plumb line; hail will sweep away your refuge, the lie, and water will overflow your hiding place.Your covenant with death will be annulled; your agreement with the realm of the dead will not stand. When the overwhelming scourge sweeps by, you will be beaten down by it. As often as it comes it will carry you away; morning after morning, by day and by night, it will sweep through.” The understanding of this message will bring sheer terror. The bed is too short to stretch out on, the blanket too narrow to wrap around you.The LORD will rise up as he did at Mount Perazim, he will rouse himself as in the Valley of Gibeon— to do his work, his strange work, and perform his task, his alien task. Now stop your mocking, or your chains will become heavier; the Lord, the LORD Almighty, has told me of the destruction decreed against the whole land. Listen and hear my voice; pay attention and hear what I say. Isaiah 28:9-23 NIV

“…for we have made a lie our refuge and falsehood our hiding place.” Sound familiar? Lies and falsehoods–propaganda used by foreign actors to create chaos and disruptions in America and tactics employed by the idiot in the White House during his campaign and continues with the short tenure in office.

There has never been such a blatant use of lies and falsehoods by a president of the United States–in our 200 + years of existence as a nation. The idiot–because of his insecurities wanted to do something better than Obama–has succeeded with his lies and falsehoods.  He is the most prolific liar and promoter of falsehoods ever known to reside in the White House.

Now, I know there are those who would disagree with me and that’s their right, but simply put–factual evidence outweighs partisan opinion.

Once again, I have to point out the facts as publicized and noted by those who are in a position to analyze the data under microscopic conditions. I have to say again, with the promotion of a false tweet–that Obama had wiretapped trump tower--the tweet was actually a signal to Russia that they had been caught. There is no other logical explanation for that tweet (paranoia).

At any rate, most of the lies and falsehoods are easily debunked by fact-checking everything anyone says from the White House. Even throughout the campaign, the surrogates knew they were lying and promoting falsehoods and they didn’t care. It was the plan to beat Hillary and it worked because there are so many naive and gullible people in America who drank the shake–believed every negative thing they heard about Hillary. This is what happens when people are desperate and frustrated. They believe the lies as the only viable alterative to providing them relief from their desperation and frustration.

No doubt there are many people who are frustrated with the “politics as usual” stance taken by most politicians. The real problem is–there are people who are in politics to benefit themselves–not their constituents and we see it all the time. Every politician who has ever gone to Washington has managed to obtain additional wealth, power and status, but few have actually promoted an agenda that would benefit all Americans. I get the frustration of those who felt “ignored and forgotten.” However, no worthwhile decision can ever be made out of frustration or desperation–we must always think things through.

I also know that many people voted out of desperation because of unemployment and the lack of coal-mining and manufacturing jobs. Unfortunately, those same people–who voted for trump out of desperation are going to feel the brunt of his policies more than most. Coal-mining as a viable economic industry is not going to return. There is no need for the coal and though it may seem like a “boon” temporarily, those who own the coal mines know the truth and they’re only going along with the “hoopla” so they can amass more wealth for themselves–not those endangering their lives going into the coal mines.

The bottom line here is that though the White House idiots-all thought they could hide behind their lies and falsehoods, they’re about to discover what life is like when the covers are pulled off and they are left completely exposed to the light of day and truth and they will experience the wrath of those they deceived.

If we really know God–we know there is no place to hide from Him or the truth. He can see beyond the water in the deepest sea, over the peaks of the highest mountain, and into every nook and cranny that exists. He knows and sees all and He hates a liar.

So lies and falsehoods are only a temporary place of refuge because Truth is on the way, exposing every lie and every falsehood and all who promoted them. There is no hiding from God.
