So that I am keeping in theme with the subject matter, I fully disclose that the title is not mine, but instead a Bosnian Proverb, and the image is a random find that makes perfect sense.
What do Wikileaks, Anonymous, Occupy Wall Street, George Soros, Barack Obama, Cass Sunstein, Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett, all Progressives, the high price of gas, war, and a myriad of other current global subjects all have in common? They all revolve around lies. Lies upon lies, upon more lies, and tied together in a night tight package…by lies. If the truth is light, then lies obviously must equal darkness. So when one considers that the core belief structure of almost any person or organization currently holding global power is to lie to attain success (end result justifies the means), then one must conclude that the world is shrouded in utter darkness.
The way to untangle the massive layers of lies is to start pulling the strings one at a time. This is an action that I notice most fail to do…simple connecting of the dots. Information is given to us in single bits…and intently isolated from the other bits it is related to. The average person has no desire, nor the time to waste, or in most cases even the ability to take each slice of information and begin painting an overall picture. Those who would benefit from such non-awareness count on this from you. They are then able to assemble their own “panels” that dissect the information for you and tell you what it means…giving you more lies. It has become laughable in many ways now because there are so many lies out there our leaders contradict themselves daily. “Oh what a tangled web we weave?” Indeed. Yet, it still works because most just simply don’t care. Just yesterday I had two people tell me “I couldn’t possibly care less,” and “I don’t ever pay attention because it makes me sad.” Well I suppose that is a happier way to live. Certainly there must be peace of mind in not knowing anything at all. However, what if we all thought like that? What would happen then? While the Nazi Party were burning Jews in ovens, there were German citizens living right down the road from where it was happening and they claim they had no idea of the things that were going on there. They thought they were just work camps. Nobody took the time to inquire. This is human nature. “If is not hurting me directly, I don’t want to get involved.” “No need for me to put my ass on the line.” Meanwhile, 6 million Jewish men, women and children were slaughtered in just a few short years right under the noses of just that type of thinking. The citizens were more comfortable with the lies.
Which is what this all boils down to…and I say this especially to my Christian brothers and sisters…God expects more from you. You are supposed to understand. You have the power of the light at your disposal. You are not allowed to be comfortable with the lie. In my own personal opinion, being comfortable in that way has to be one of the most despicable sins. There is no shortage of outlets in the faith that will allow and encourage you to get comfortable. That will make everything all about you…and when it is all about us, isn’t that the most comfortable of all? Thousands of books. seminars, workshops, online studies, websites and the like all dedicated to letting you talk about you. Why things are bothering you. How can you find your purpose? Why your marriage sucks. How God can make your boo-boo all better. It is all designed as one big pacifier to be stuck in the mouth of an infant so that nothing ever grows from it. It is all nonsense, and all just part of the one big original lie. Satan is a wily one make no mistake. Man’s most fatal miscalculation in the end will be that he always thought of Satan as an obvious enemy. Satan doesn’t roll that way on earth. Satan is your best friend here. He is the one making your burden just a little lighter and whispering in your ear that you deserve it. He is the one guiding you away from the light and towards the false light. The lie. Then he begins the process of wrapping you inside it, and few, if any, ever escape from that point.
Satan will lie for you. You can also be 100% certain he will lie against you.
So as our world, our society, unravels right before our eyes, and we are told to go about our business and let the big boys handle it, you may need to consider exactly WHO is telling you that and WHY they are saying it. It might just peak your curiosity enough to start pulling some strings. It only takes the revealing of one strand of lies to make you rub your eyes and say to yourself, “hey, that wasn’t true…what else are they lying to me about?” That is the point you begin to walk towards the light again and away from the hidden black abyss you have been wallowing in. That is also the point your life begins to have actual meaning…purpose…and all of the things you pine for. It will make you miserable, fearful, worried, stressed…ya know…those feelings that you go to any length to avoid, because after all, it has been about you. That is not God’s intent. You are to worry about your brothers and sisters and leave the care of you up to Him.
