Lines clearly drawn
The battle lines are being more clearly drawn every day. No one will be able to sit on the fence for very long. There will not be a peace option.
[Read Mathew 10:34-35]
No, we can not all get along. Following the rules will not constitute social acceptance or the right to be free. Being quiet and agreeable, not rocking the boat, will not guarantee you will keep your life.
When you take God out of society and out of our kids’ education, His attributes are no longer taught as right, good, best, or most individually profitable. As a result, you have chaos of values, hardened hearts, and self-righteous entitlement that grows like mold, taking out all the good, and leaving it no way to reproduce itself in the future.
When you shut out disagreeable views, when you shut up those with the courage to stand alone for what they know is right or just, when you run away from what makes you uncomfortable or causes you to feel, ultimately, when you lean on your own understanding instead of seeking Father God’s understanding, your fall is Inevitable. Your understanding is either rose-colored, like cattle up to the very hour of slaughter, or you’re leaning on Father God’s understanding. [Read Proverbs 3:5-6]
Don’t mistake God’s understanding as rated G. GOD IS TRUTH no matter how hard it is to know, realize, watch, or follow. Unfiltered, unsweetened, no added preservatives, just 100% raw, organic, truth. Trust me, friends, that truth is not G-rated. That truth is not based on opinion or acceptance of it. That truth is absolute, universal, unavoidable, and governed by He, Himself, Creator, Almighty, God.
You can deny it, try to avoid it, you can even cause the majority to rule against it, but it remains true and someday will require individual accountability. Friends, not only is God’s truth not rated G, it also holds no partiality to chosen ignorance to it. We either walk in truth or we don’t, no fence option. [Read Revelations 3:16]
L.L.Q.R.A.P. Is our call to action. Look, listen, question, research, act, and pray.
Look – Information does not come to us by accident, not even the most unrealistic or profound ideas come without reason or cause. We must look at all information, not just what we like to believe or agree with. We must choose to open our eyes and refuse to conform to a majority in the wrong by turning a blind eye to the truth.
Listen – We must choose to listen to all aspects of possible truth even when it’s hard, against the grain, or even when it seems downright unbelievable. This takes courage and faith because we must do this without selfish motivation or preconceived ideas of reality and truth.
Question – We must question everything. Question all motives, loyalties, and desired outcomes without prejudice or close mindedness.
Research – No matter what, we can not stagnate. We must seek truth no matter how horrifying and ugly it may be. We must make it our full intent, our life mission, our ultimate goal to uncover the absolute truth.
Act – We must seek our role, our possible actions to stand upon the truth we uncover. What can we do to cause awareness, to bring sight to the blind and set sleeping captives free? Where is our place on the battlefield?
It is our God-given individual right to choose to die free or die a slave. We choose to submit to the powers that be and thereby enslave ourselves, or we choose to stand against them knowing our very life is at stake.
Prayer – Finally, but most detrimentally important, seek to hear the voice of God. There is no wisdom, and there is no truth apart from Him. If we haven’t heard His voice, we must find out why as if our lives depended on it. If we have heard the voice of God, we must seek to hear Him louder and more clearly every day.
If you are truly, without selfish motivation, seeking God’s wisdom, His truth, then don’t ignore your gut. Pay attention to your instinct.
The most powerful weapon we have against those who try to enslave us through lies, deceit, manipulations and fleshly comforts, is our ability to talk directly to Father God, given to us by Jesus’s life, death and resurrection. We do this through prayer. If we can not take action to stand upon the truth in any other way, we can still be a powerful help by bowing our heads to pray.
It’s time to choose friends. Which side of the battlefield will we fight on? There is not a middle ground. Once we decide which side we fight for, we must seek our position and help in the fight even unto death! No more silence, no more passing the responsibility to another, no more excuses. We must get up, put on our big kid pants, and fight for what we believe!
May God bless you and keep you as you seek Him with your whole heart.
