And judgment is turned away backward,
Isaiah 59:14, 15
The age of apostacy is dead-set upon us. The lies are waxing bolder and stronger. Even the pretense of right-thinking has become warped. This is what we've seen this last week:
- a health "reform" bill in Congress that would have mandatory counseling to the elderly on medical monies from the government about how to commit suicide...
- That same bill would diminish treatments (i.e., payment for) quality treatment for the chronically ill and handicapped... especially if their conditions were not hopeful.
- a blasphemous set of statements about The LORD JESUS CHRIST on YouTube
- a book written about a man meeting "GOD" in a shack... where the HOLY FATHER of Our LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST is portrayed as a woman ! WHAT "GOD" COULD THAT BE?
How can Christians know
what is Truth?
The only way to recognize Truth is by holding issues up to the Life+ in JESUS CHRIST, as found in the Gospels... not in the imagination of man. We hold these issues up to the Light+ and "see" them for what they are.
Like the sunflower, we turn always toward the Light+ in JESUS CHRIST and we follow HIM+. We do NOT swerve to the left or to the right.
That Life+ in JESUS CHRIST is gained by death.
THIS "DEATH" is Not the sick urge "for the good of society" toward suicide or eliminating the non-producers of society...
...but by the denial of our flesh for the sake of being His+ disciples and out of an obedient, love-faith relationship with CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. (Thank you, Brother David Bercot!)
When we start denying our flesh, picking up our cross, and TRULY spend our time, energy, and thoughts following JESUS...
...then we will know Truth.
The real, unshackled
HOLY SPIRIT, HOLY FATHER, and HOLY SON+
will come to abide in us then
and we will recognize the phony,
and the wicked spirits
that are pouring forth
who will NEVER
for the sake of CHRIST JESUS.
That is how we discern the difference between good and evil.
For they that are after the flesh
do mind the things of the flesh;
they that are after the SPIRIT
the things of the SPIRIT.
For to be carnally minded is death;
but to be spiritually minded is
life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is
enmity against GOD:
for it is not subject
to the law of GOD,
neither indeed can be.
So then they
that are in the flesh
cannot please GOD.
