Let’s begin by talking about biblical discernment. In the last days many so called prophets, politicians, and religious leaders have arisen speaking and saying different things, but where is the discernment? Without biblical discernment it has created a matrix of confusion casting most into the depths of darkness, who are then willing to blindly follow anyone who speaks with polished rhetoric and outrageous promises. On the other hand, we must have biblical discernment to expose the lies and to rescue those who have been taken captive through their sorceries. So what is biblical discernment? It’s much more than just memorizing a few favorite verses of Scripture. It’s much more than memorizing and quoting a religious leader’s slant on the truth. It’s much more than taking an eschatological viewpoint and forcing it upon all of Scripture. It’s much more than parroting the speech of a popular political or religious personality. Biblical discernment is putting all of God’s Word into our heart and that can only happen when we become doers of the Word. It begins in our mind and remains in our heart by following God’s commandments for all of life allowing it through faith to transform our miserable lives. The Bible says, “But solid food is for fullgrown men, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil” (Hebrews 5:14). Solid food moves beyond the milk of God’s Word to the many other truths that will bring us into maturity. This is the first and most important step toward biblical discernment.
As we continue our spiritual growth into all truth and understanding we realize that all of God’s Word must be relevant for all of life. Therefore, it is essential that nothing be added or taken away from what He has given us for all of life and godliness. Very few in our day really come to the truth and allow it to make a real difference in their life. They never experience the new life in Christ. In fact, most people keep polluting their minds with all the trash in the world making it impossible to discern the truth from a lie. For example, I have known many people who can memorize all that psychology has to say about who and what they are. They can explain the label placed upon them by the professionals of psychiatry and the different drugs they are now required to take for the rest of their life, but are unable to explain how God’s truth alone can make them into a new creation. They have been deceived by the counterfeit miracles of our age believing that their worldly counselors and prescription drugs will solve their problems and give them a better life. But let me stress, these so called miracles are counterfeit and have no power to transform your life into a beautiful new creation. The Bible says that, “They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie” (See II Thessalonians 2:9-12). What deeply saddens me is that the Catholic Church along with many evangelical churches has believed this lie thus keeping many from experiencing their new life in Christ. In the Book of Revelation it says that, “the merchants were the great men of the earth, for by their sorceries were all nations deceived.” (See Revelation 18:23) Yes, all the nations will be deceived by big business and specifically big Pharma. The word “sorceries” is where we get the word pharmacy or pharmaceutical. Therefore, the Catholic Church the great harbinger of social justice is in league with the devil to drug God’s people keeping them from ever experiencing their new life in Christ.
The second step in biblical discernment is to allow other mature believers along with you to discern if what they are hearing is truly of God and not of man. The Bible says, “And let the prophets speak by two or three, and let the others discern” (I Corinthians 14:29). This is a beautiful verse because it shows the necessity of the body of believers in true biblical discernment that’s sorely needed in our day. Not every Christian is at the same point in his or her journey toward spiritual maturity. Not every Christian has the same Spiritual gift needed for the edification of the body of believers. So as you come together in your Bible studies and times of worship you will be mutually taught and encouraged through God’s anointed Word. Dear friends, get confirmation from other mature believers to keep you from being led astray by the cunning men in our day, both political and religious personalities. Dear children, without biblical discernment you will be deceived. In fact, the entire world other than those who have had their names written in the Lambs Book of Life will be deceived. Dear children, this week we will need every ounce of discernment when listening to Barrack Obama and Pope Francis.
When Barrack Hussein Obama said that he would bring change to America, unfortunately this time he was not lying. So much has changed over the past six years it’s nearly impossible to get our hands completely around it, but with God we shall prevail. This change has come upon our shores like a tidal wave overcoming the simple minded, emboldening the immoral, and deceiving the religious. Step by step, he has broken down the walls allowing every manner of wickedness to infiltrate our beloved nation though Legislation, the Supreme Court, and Executive Orders. We are no longer asked, but demanded to accept homosexuality, same sex marriage, and the transgender. We are no longer asked, but are demanded to accept the 85,000 refugees, most of them from Syria, next year and to accept the increase to 100,000 the following year. We are no longer asked to accept the Islamic faith, but demanded that we show tolerance by allowing their diabolical teachings into our local schools and influencing our religious leaders to have dialogue and joint prayer services. This, my friend, is all done in preparation for the New World Order that will require acceptance of all people, their culture, their language, and their belief system.
I find that the changes the Pope is making rather astonishing when you consider the history of the Catholic Church who has always taken the opposite position as being a closed society of true believers willing to persecute those who held a different belief and warning against the Islamic faith seen as the devil incarnate. From almost the beginning it had always believed that those who stood outside the church where destined for the fires of hell and eternal damnation. What would cause Pope Francis to enter a Mosque in Turkey and pray alongside a Muslim cleric praying to a different god? Is he following the example of Barack Hussein Obama who also removed his shoes and kneeled down with Muslims clerics in a joint prayer service as they prayed to Allah? What would cause the Pope to implore all churches in Europe to take in a Muslim refugee family? So does this mean that they will now be praying to their god, Allah, in the structure where Christians regularly meet to worship and pray? What has caused this complete reversal where they are now willing to bring all faiths together in unity demonstrating a degree of tolerance never before seen? What would inspire him to say the following in Cuba on this past Saturday, ” It is a sign of the victory of the culture of encounter and dialogue, “the system of universal growth” over “the forever-dead system over groups and dynasties.“ Clearly the Pope is set on a path to break down the walls of separation thus bringing forth unification among the world’s leaders in preparation for a New World Order.
We have seen the signs of deception where Pope Francis is relaxing some laws within the Catholic Church, praying with and accepting the Islamic faith in mutual dialogue. As we wait in anticipation to the Pope’s speech this week to both the UN and to both houses of Congress let’s briefly examine some of his latest speeches that should give us an eye for discernment. In his speech to the Popular Movement in Bolivia he used the word “change” 30 times, one wonders if he has taken a page from Obama’s play book. It appears the change he was looking for was continuing his social programs of lifting all people up to the same level throughout the world, taking care of Mother Earth, and relaxing the culture and religious barriers that separate us. He said, “They want their culture, their language, their social processes and their religious traditions to be respected.” Clearly this could only be accomplished if all world leaders would come together. With his many references to globalization, he also said, “We want a change which can affect the entire world, since global interdependence calls for global answers to local problems.” Furthermore, he has said, “To our brothers and sisters in the Latin American indigenous movement, allow me to express my deep affection and appreciation of their efforts to bring peoples and cultures together in a form of coexistence which I would call polyhydric, where each group preserves its own identity by building together a plurality which does not threaten but rather reinforces unity.” I believe we are already seeing this in the United States where they are introducing Islamic teachings into our public schools and among our children.
Yes, Pope Francis, we will be listening. God give us discernment, so that we will not be deceived.
