The Delusion that Confounds Us!
By Don Twobears
I try and write about things that are close to each of us. Things like “Being Loving” and “Caring for each other” and then there are things like, “Thinking and Pondering all that is good”. And then sometimes I see how others are acting and behaving, not only to us, but everyone concerned. And so, I am now over-whelmed to see all the hate and anger by so many in this country. Mostly because their world is being upset, things are not as they once were, conditions are changing and like so many others, they hate change. How odd is it, that change is the one single most apparent thing taking place all the time, if you don’t believe me, sit and watch your clock sometime. It’s that simple!
Obviously, we are not growing younger, but older and time stands still for no one! So now the question is, How should we be growing? 2 Thessalonians 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” Do we see how we should be, whether we in a high paying job or not, that each of us were meant to work? Having stated this from the Holy Word of God, the Bible, where does this leave our Welfare System? It was meant to help when catastrophy happens, not as a way of life!
Matthew 5:23-25 “Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.”
Is this what all is happening now days?! Evidently, others are so angry that they are going to FORCE you and I to change to their ideas, even in the face of overwhelming votes to the contrary. Some are against the Laws of this land, by blocking highways and roads, but will this be helpful or not? And for some, are we turning the other cheek, in the face of adversity? Are we showing compassion concerning their plight?
Proverbs 26:4 “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.”
Proverbs 29:9-12 “If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest. The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul. A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards. If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.”
Do these passages of Scripture, lay out the actions of a fool? Do these passages of Scripture advise us in how we should be? If looking at these, we should also understand there is a Law unto God and then a Law unto the Land. We must be very careful NOT to break the Laws of either.
There is another problem that we see everyday, that contributes to all these things, a true lack of understanding of the Word of God. We read in Scripture a very sobering account, that has already been taking place and is even worse now than before. Please read this passage and then Re-read it again.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
“Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”
Would it be a stretch to believe this is the case, with the majority of the world today? Are you able to see this in action with almost every conceivable idea? The passage of Scripture above is long, yet the Truth is there in every word. There are many shows on the internet today, talking about the digs and findings, in so many areas, like Sodom and Gommorah, The Kingdom of David in Jerusalem. There is indeed an interest in these areas, yet for the “Learn-ed Academics and Theologians” today, there is a great disparity in truth taking place.
Lets begin with how these individuals approach the Holy Word of God, the Bible. Do they revere the Word of God, as they should, with all Holiness and Respect? Do they Pray before they read it and ask for the Wisdom and Discernment of the Lord? Are they willing to accept the Holy Word of God, as absolute Truth…in other words Literally?! You must remember these individuals and their pay and jobs, require them to be “All Knowing”…would you agree? Or at least a facsimilie there of. And yet there is one thing they have in common with everyone, they are human.
The biggest problems that humans have with the Holy Word of God, is that we humans are fallable, mistaken in many areas, prone to failure, because we are the “Fallen Species” here. We must come to the Lord God for Salvation…there is no other way! We are also were given a “Finite Mind”, thus we will never know everything..we are dependent on the Lord God to direct us in every way.
When we accept this, we are then given by the Lord, a New way of viewing this Life of ours! For the most part, man does not want to accept the Word of God, because it shows man that they are “Evil beyond compare and fallen, deserving Eternal Destruction.” That the only way to Circumvent Eternal Destruction in Hell and the Lake of Fire, is to accept the Gift of Salvation through the Blood of Jesus Christ! And yet, what does man say “Look at me, I am so smart and Intelligent” and again man fails! Don’t forget, we have a “Finite Mind”…right?!
The producers of these programs, want to bring a “World of Scientific thought” to bear, yet they are careful not to say things that will “Turn People Off.” They say things like, “IF the Bible is True…well then…” and yet there is no taking the Holy Word of God as absolute Truth. Problem is, the majority of people never understand those words spoken, it literally slips right past them. Thus they have been Decieved…they are believing a LIE…”Well, these are such Educated people.” Again…a Delusion?
So now the question is, How much of what we see and hear…is actually a Delusion or a part there of?! I know for a fact, because I believe this, the Word of God is absolute Truth and to be taken literally! How often do we see the Holy Word of God, give Prophecy and then back it up with evidence from previous times, as in the Old Testement. Are you able to see how the Word of God, goes forward, as in the New Testement and then shows where it is verified in the Old Testement. Back and Forth, time and time again! If you do not see this, then whom is wrong?! Are you deluded? Come on now…Just asking! Yet it worth thinking about!
When we spend time in the Word of God everyday, we don’t seem to come into conflict, with all that is taking place around us. If the majority of the world were to read the Holy Word of God everyday, do you think we would have the problems that we see all around us? When we read the Bible, we find comfort and sanity, hope for our future.
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Has life become wiery and difficult?! Then come to Jesus Christ, HE IS the Creator, HE IS the Answer to every problem, HIS Holy Word the Bible…is our comfort…our guide in life! Things do not have to be difficult, change is easy, because the Lord God is directing our Footsteps, our thoughts and thus our Life is as HE wants it to be and our future is solidified, our Eternity will be with HIM. Remember this, Life is difficult for you and I…Not for God!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
I use the King James version of the Bible and all emphasis is mine.
