Exposed!

Exposed!

Enemies disguise themselves with their lips, but in their hearts they harbor deceit. Though their speech is charming, do not believe them, for seven abominations fill their hearts. Their malice may be concealed by deception, but their wickedness will be exposed in the assembly.Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them. A lying tongue hates those it hurts, and a flattering mouth works ruin. Proverbs 26:24-28 NIV

One of the reasons that enemies get the best of people is because trusting people simply trust until the enemy is exposed, but sometimes–the exposure comes to late. The very gullible–trust the lying lips and charming speech of those who have no soul and they seldom see beyond the surface of a person’s veneer.

How do we know when an enemy lurks within and near? We watch–with guarded hearts and pay attention to whether their actions match their words. Do we see light in their eyes that exposes the transparency of their souls or is there darkness–veiling the evil that fights for control in their soul?

Does the person display paranoid tendencies, claiming someone is always out to get them, following them, or spying on them? Are they constantly complaining about the “false” perceptions others have of them? Are they open to multiple perspectives about issues or are they close-minded, seeking only those they know will agree with them for advice?

Do they think that only what they say is truth and everyone else is a liar?

Is there consistent blame and finger pointing when they refuse to accept responsibility for their own actions?

Years ago, a well-known comedian–Flip Wilson–always made a point of saying in one of his spoofs, “the devil made me do it.” Some people–apparently took that literally and accuse the devil of all sorts of things he hasn’t done. In fact, the devil can’t make anyone do anything other than plant the idea and influence surroundings, but what a person does “their active engagement in anything” is entirely on them. The desire was already within them and they didn’t need much to act on their thoughts. If we only do what is right, we never have to fear being exposed for doing wrong.

This is one of the reasons we can rely upon God’s Word when we’re told through James, that no one should ever say when they are tempted to do something that God tempted them because God will not tempt anyone with evil, but we are drawn into evil by our own lusts–those desires that don’t align with God’s Word. Reasonably speaking, if God won’t make us do anything (we make choices), then the devil won’t either. We do what we do because of the desire to do it.

Remember the adage about being able to fool some of the people some of the time, but never all the people, all the time? Those who have discerning spirits–always attentive to the alarms we sense in our spirits when Holy Spirit is warning–know how to recognize the enemy. We watch and take note of all that is not like God and then we warn others, cautioning them to watch as well and not trust a person based upon surface knowledge. Even when we don’t know people on a personal level–we can ultimately determine who is leading them simply by paying attention to what they say on social media and how they say it.

The same traits and characteristics we can detect in a person with whom we encounter face-to-face, are detected through what we see said in a “tweet” or a blog post.

The secure individual is not afraid of what others have to say and never expects everyone to agree with them. In fact, they look forward to hearing opposing views and then take the time to scrutinize what has been said and objectively determine whether what was said has merit or not. The secure person is not paranoid and has no fear of what others might do or say to them–they walk in love and The Word tells us that perfect love, casts aside all fears.

The discerning person–hearing what Holy Spirit tells them–will share that insight in an attempt to foil the enemy’s plans–exposing them for all they are. Sometimes, exposure comes through the enemy’s actions and all the world can see them for what they are. Everything done in darkness or under cover–out of sight–will be exposed to the light of day and scrutinized and judged based upon what is exposed.

There is no cleaning up lies–especially when a person lies about the lies in an attempt to deceive–deliberately–out of greed for power and money.

Knowing in advance that when a person chooses to run for a political office, attempts will be made to “uncover or expose” a person’s past, I can rest easy in my decision. There is nothing in my past that hasn’t already been publicized in my books in one way or another. My blog posts for the past five years or more have been a mirror into my soul–introspectively–for all who read them. So, I’m continuing the exploratory process, determined to make a difference in America for all Americans.

Deliverance!

Deliverance!

The LORD detests dishonest scales, but accurate weights find favor with him. When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. The righteousness of the blameless makes their paths straight, but the wicked are brought down by their own wickedness. The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the unfaithful are trapped by evil desires. Proverbs 11:1-6 NIV

At this moment–in the United States of America–we need deliverance–from the schemes of a unstable individual in the White House–whose greed for power and wealth may be the destruction of all mankind.

Though the Evangelical leaders in the church-world, proclaimed that he was God’s choice for president, most–who are capable of critical thinking–can see (we’re not wearing rose-colored glasses) this was not true. How do we know? We know by the Word!

  • God detests liars
  • God hates those who cheat others
  • God desires peace among nations
  • God desires the righteous to defend the rights of the poor and needy
  • God is not enamored by those who boast falsely about anything
  • God wants us to be faithful to Him and others in all we do
  • God honors integrity
  • God honors humility
  • God honors the upright (those who walk in His righteousness)
  • God honors those who seek His wisdom
  • God honors those who are quick to listen, but slow to speak
  • God honors those who are compassionate
  • God honors those who are “living epistles” of the love of Christ

This list could go on and on, but I think I’ve made the point–that nothing the #WHidiot has done would be honored by God. He’s in the White House because Republicans have a need to control others–and what they do in their personal lives–and because they think they are superior to any other group of people and they misuse–or rather misstate–their relationship with God in order to justify what they do.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again–and again, and again, and again, until they realize their so-called christianity–is rooted in man’s desire to control others. They are the 21st Century Pharisees who think if “religion” is observed in any way other than the way they observe it–it’s wrong. And that’s the problem with religion–a situation in which mere mortals concoct ideologies and rules for others to obey.

Relationship with God through Jesus Christ is all about a desire to please Him, not men. Within the relationship–we are free to communicate with God through Holy Spirit and the Written Word and seek wisdom and direction without condemnation. Within the relationship–we allow Holy Spirit to control us–not the dictates of men. Within the relationship–we know that God is pro-choice because He has given mankind choice from the garden and will to the end.

Deliverance–comes in being free to worship the God of creation and knowing that all things created were created by Him and without Him, nothing was created. It is through our relationship with God that we know true deliverance and once we understand that deliverance–nothing mere man does can ever hold us in bondage again.

The Deliverer–Jesus Christ–has delivered us from the bondage of sin and everything that God hates and despises–once we accept Him into our lives and willingly give Him control over all we think, say, or do. That’s deliverance! And it’s why I’ll continue to proclaim that the Evangelical leaders lied to people when they said, God chose a president who does not honor Him in any way.

Now, perhaps–just maybe–some will be delivered from the bondage in which they’re held in their faith in man over God by reading my blog posts–angrily or not–and will seek understanding of how God functions in the earth today, through His Word and right relationship with Him.
