Willful Blindness – Redux

Our ability to deceive ourselves is so great, that it is almost beyond comprehension. It’s as if we decided that the looming disasters that we face, are too much trouble to think about – much less, talk about or even do anything to avoid.

We won’t even TALK about these things, and I’m utterly amazed by this. And, since we keep our mouths closed, our choice to be blind spreads.

Like a disease.

Unfortunately, it’s NOT a disease. It’s a choice. We chose this. And, I wouldn’t believe it, if I didn’t see it in myself.

God LOVES His Children

As the evil goes from victory to victory in these dark days, it is easy to forget that God had not changed, and that He still loves us as much now, as He did when He sent His Son to die for us. And, the idea that the Creator would come to Earth to die for us, to give us eternal life…

I can barely comprehend such a love as that.

And, He STILL loves us with that kind of passion. Still. Right now. No matter what is going on around you, and in your life.

We Forgot that God is JUST

One of the most pernicious movements to sweep the church is this idea that God is a kindly old man who wouldn’t hurt a fly and is willing and ready to overlook any and all sin. Along with it came an easy-believism and permission to ‘follow your heart’.

Truth was optional, and the Old Testament didn’t reflect God, anymore.

What we forgot in the process was that God doesn’t change. Ever. We forgot that the sins that made Him angry four thousand years ago, make Him angry today.

We forgot that God is JUST.

None so Blind as Those

The reason why the world is in so much trouble, is that we’ve been living in a fantasy world of our own design. And, as this fantasy unravels, we clutch at it more and more fiercely. Unfortunately for the fantasy-clutchers, the fabric has already torn and reality is becoming visible.

The only question is…

Will our fantasies die fast enough to deal with reality?

Or, will our fantasies persist for long enough for reality to destroy us?

I suspect that these lies have been hand-crafted, to defeat us and hasten our day of reckoning.

The Semitary

The rise of heresy is astonishing. Even though history records the rise of countless heretical movements and heretical ideas, nothing compares to the heresies that have arisen over the past two hundred years. And, their rise closely correlates to the advent of modern communication. But, as they say, correlation does not imply causation.

So, how did these heresies arise?

I have blamed the printing press, but there is an institution that should be looked at first. And, as the title of this piece indicates, we’re talking about The Semitary, more commonly known as the seminary.

And, like the grave plots that this word sounds like, the Seminary/Semitary is full of dead people.

Strong Delusion – Reasons

Delusions are dangerous. They can wreck your life, poison your family and get you sent to the hospital. They kill. They injure. And, they claim the lives of countless numbers of people, every year. Hitler murdered tens of millions with a delusion. Stalin, Mao and Planned Parenthood have done the same.

Worse, we have delusions that threaten our eternal destiny. Some will earn us a lessened reward in heaven. Some… SOME delusions will send us to the Lake of Fire.

The question is… WHY?

Why are we so willing to entertain and adopt these illusions, and then… eventually …The Strong Delusion?

Strong Delusion – Intro

Wickedness and stupidity are contagious. If you need evidence, just look around you. Read your local newspaper. Watch television. Go to the movies. You’ll see evidence for real evil and drooling idiocy, everywhere. But, there is something stronger coming, something that God will cause.

It’s called a Strong Delusion, and it’s a phrase that is used only once in the KJV. And, it specifically refers to the Last Days. And, I have some questions.

WHEN will this strong delusion come?

WHAT will it be?

HOW will it arrive?

…and…

DO we see it now?

I’m not sure that we can answer all these questions, but maybe we can shed some light on them.

Daniel’s 70th Week

There is a deception that weaves its way through our churches and the hearts of most followers of Christ. And, this deception is deadly, especially in these dark times. It grants permission for men and women to add to the Bible, man-made ideas. It distorts our view of Jesus Christ and our understanding of the Last Days. It plays a part in putting brothers and sisters in Christ, to sleep.

Even clear-thinking brothers and sisters have fallen prey to this deception. And, I find myself extremely annoyed, every time that I hear it. And, it’s high time that we stopped this foolishness.

God Has His Reasons

When God moves in the lives of His children, the reasons may appear to be one thing, when they are completely different. You might think that you’ve crashed and burned on the shoals of capricious events. You might not see any rhyme or reason for what is happening to you, but God sees things differently. And, if you are a true follower of Christ, for long enough, you will see a lot of this.

To put it another way, nothing happens by accident. Nothing. And, I take a great deal of comfort in that, and I hope that you do too.
