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?

Fear God

With the unusual events of this past week and an impromptu family reunion in central Taiwan, I find myself on a different topic than what I wanted to talk about.

However, it is so much more important than the destruction of our civilization that it’s like the difference between night and day. And, I find that our churches have destroyed themselves because they do not do the one thing that would keep them safe:

Fear God.

We serve God and follow God, because we love Him. But, we keep ourselves pure and holy because we fear Him.

And yes, we need both.

Back in Israel, and Staring into the Abyss

Well, I finally made it back to Israel, after being away for a year and a half. After a peaceful existence in Taipei, returning to the stress of Jerusalem has been difficult. Israel is a country under siege, and part of the reason for that is the disaster that we all face.

Some of what happened over the past week has been more than a little shocking. We knew that it had to come, but that knowledge did little to lessen the shock. What I’m talking about is the cutoff of gas to 60% of Europe, and the decoupling of the Swiss Franc from the Euro.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Disaster, Israel and Fear

Over the past few months, I’ve been hitting you with one series after another. So, you’re probably glad that I’ve given you something of a breather, this week. I’m also glad because a series is a lot more work than a bunch of individual articles. We’ll see how long this ‘breather’ lasts. Unfortunately, this is probably the calm before a storm. The Fall seems to be the time when most banks decide to fail, and markets catch cold when investors come back from Summer break and look at their portfolios. Ebola looms on the horizon. And, let’s not forget that … Click here to read the rest…

Fear

When your Dad is rich, you know that you will never need to worry about money. He may not always pay for everything that you want. But, you will never have to worry about what you need.

When your Dad is the God of the Universe…

…you will never need to worry about ANYTHING that you need.

Period.

Worry is just another word for fear. And yes, our Father really is the God of the Universe. And, the only thing that we need to fear is our inattention to what God is telling us.

That’s why, even with all that is going on around us, our only fear should be deafness to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
