Easy to Fall

Now Micah was by no means innocent and clearly deceived because he rejected God’s rule. He knew what he was getting and incorrectly believed that God would bless him because he now had a Levite in his house. He was clearly deceived into thinking this but why? It all started back in Judges 17:3 when we learned Micah had a habit of worshiping idols and using divination to gain knowledge and “wisdom.” Too many Christians can’t find their way around the Bible, but they all want God to “speak” to them and above all things, “bless” them.

Our New Default…

Before we became Christians, we had specific “defaults” in how we reacted to situations. These often stemmed from the way we were brought up, at least in part, as well as the personality we had and how that personality developed in us over the years. How things impacted us as a child and how we saw our parents react toward one another and God (if God was in that equation), created a pattern for the way we ourselves learned to deal with situations. Interestingly enough though, our default to the many situations we faced in life was a learned process. We may have seen how our parents handled stress for instance, and we began imitating that reaction so that it stayed with us and carried us over into adulthood. Now, that pattern may be firmly established within us so that we find ourselves reacting to stress nearly the same way our parents did and taught us through osmosis.

It’s Been Happening for Awhile

A reader sent me a link to a fairly long article but very much worth the read and I would encourage readers to read it.[2] The article starts out with an introduction written by Dr. Stanley Monteith for Thomas Horn years ago, but what is fascinating about that it is that it is still pertinent today, if not more so. I would encourage readers to head over there when done here to read the article for themselves. It goes into great detail about how powerful people chose to do what they could to create a feudal system for the entire world where there would be two levels to society: the lords and the serfs. Anyone who doesn’t think that this plan is very much under way is deceived or non-thinking. It is happening and the Bible indicates that it will happen and will come to fruition. When it does, the son of perdition himself – the Antichrist – will step up to rule that global kingdom.

Will AI Be Part of the Coming Deception?

Satan will create such awe-inspiring supernatural signs and wonders through Antichrist that people will be easily deceived by them because there will be no rational or natural explanation for them. Clearly, at least to my way of thinking, those supernatural signs and wonders will not be AI. They will be far, far above what AI can produce and that is what will deceive people all over the world because in comparing it to AI, there will be no comparison. Satan can create tornadoes (Job 1), and other things (pitting armies against armies). He didn’t use AI for that. He actually had the power to create those things. Why would he need to use AI? He doesn’t and won’t.

Rev 14B: Reaping the Harvests

From this passage we learn that God is gathering a great harvest of souls. Commentators see these two harvests as either the first being for the righteous and the second for the wicked. For the righteous of course, eternal life is provided, and for the wicked, just and eternal punishment awaits. Some commentators believe the two are for the same harvest – the harvest for the wicked. The reason they believe it is repeated twice is for emphasis, showing that God will surely bring it about. It’s difficult to go into all the pros and cons of each view, but readers should avail themselves of study tools that may help them come down on one side or the other. Remember, we are trying to determine God’s meaning here, not what we think it means or what we want it to mean. What is God telling us here?

Being Wrong About God

We know the story. Joseph did what he could to physically avoid her constant temptations to lie with her. But he wanted nothing to do with and would not yield. Where did Joseph get the power and ability to resist Potiphar’s wife? It had to stem from how he learned to fear OFFENDING the Lord all those years in prison. He had given himself over to God.

Being a Good Automaton

People need to be informed and not “feared” into doing something that may or may not be good for them. It is good to be as fully informed as possible. Yet the powers that be prefer we just take whatever they tell us as truth and not think; do no due diligence; avoid critical thinking at all costs. Just do what you’re told like good little automatons.

Rev 14: The Lamb and Proclamations

One of the biggest points that this text drives home is that God is GOD and there is no other! The fact that things are done according to God’s timing and for His glory often make us question His involvement in the affairs of humanity. However, it becomes exceedingly clear from Scripture that God is not only involved in our affairs (in our lives, locally, statewide and federally as well as globally), but in the affairs of all people throughout the globe! Our God not only holds all these things in His extremely capable hands, but nothing escapes His notice. Nothing.

Blasphemy Openly Increasing

We should actually rejoice at a person who becomes angry at the truth we present! That sounds odd, but if they are angry, they are actually still dealing with the issue of God because their conscience still works. Once they’ve pushed beyond it so that their consciences become seared and God literally gives them over to the lies they have chosen to embrace (Romans 1:24). At that point, they have no trouble with actual truth anymore, fully convinced the lies they believe are truth.

Only God Masters the Future

So if God IS in control, what do we do? Several things. First, we trust Him above all things, even when we cannot see clearly. This may require work on our part; an effort to give up the things that weigh on us and trust Him for His outcome. Second, we continue to live our lives. This is the biggest proverbial smack in the face to the handful of elite billionaires than anything else. By living our lives, we show them we are not afraid nor will we be bullied. Let them do whatever they think they can do to allow them to gain power over the world. We, however, will continue to celebrate the life God has given us and we will do that by getting together with other Christians in fellowship, enjoying family time, taking trips for relaxation and more. Third, we need to become people of praise. There is no greater thing we can do than to praise God for His expected provision, wisdom, discernment and strength. Often, we might need to offer a sacrifice of praise (Hebrews 13:15), when we don’t necessarily feel like it. Sometimes, this is all I can do even though my heart isn’t in it, though it usually comes along.
