Developing Discernment in an Age of Deception

Are you unknowingly being used by the devil to do his bidding? We need to discover how to have great discernment in this age of deception that’s already captured so many of God’s children to do his bidding, to do his work. Let me say, very importantly, that there is no easy path to great discernment. It will take faith, dedication, and many hours of hard work. Before we learn how to have great discernment, let’s look at why it’s so important to have discernment in our day. Without great discernment, the beast of worldly power will capture you to believe his lies as the gospel truth and then he will lead you to teach others, thus doing the devil’s bidding. Jesus said, “Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:14). This is wise counsel from the Lord. “Let them alone.” Don’t learn from them! Return to the “Teacher of Truth” and stop trying to learn from the world and its many pretend teachers taking their lessons from the beast of worldly power. Also, See my Article “Are You Following A Blind Guide.”

Our first step in developing great discernment is to redeem the time. The Bible says, “Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16). Dear children, this is essential if we are serious about developing great discernment in an evil age. Even while most of the world is in lockdown due to the latest pandemic, most are still wasting many hours in worthless activities. Although they have many more hours at their disposal, they have not redeemed the time. Redeem means to buyback. So, we need to buy back our time spent on meaningless activities, senseless conversations, and trivial pursuits. For most, that would, pretty much, cut out social media that robs people of many precious hours. We can’t stop there! Many other areas rob us of our time from the many hours of baseless entertainment to chasing after every new conspiracy theory and false teachers. These hours wasted can easily turn into days, then weeks, months and years. The first step is buying back this time and using it to learn how to have great discernment in an age of deception.

Now that I’ve got your attention and all this new bought back time on your hands, what should you do with it? This calls for wisdom. So, we don’t fall into the same trap laid by the devil, we must be very selective on what we read, what we watch, and what we listen to; and, please dear children don’t share something on social media that you have not thoroughly examined yourself. Yet, how will you examine unless you have discernment, which will lead us to our next step? The Bible says, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears” (II Timothy 4:3). The key to great discernment is knowing what you believe and believing what you know. Yet, we live in a day when most Christians avoid the sound doctrines of our faith like the plague. Most of their theology or doctrines are built on a hodgepodge of sermons from the pulpit or the internet, scant readings from their Bible, and Scripture quotes (typically out of context) on social media. If that’s all that you have then you will never discern what’s been coming upon the world and how the devil is using it and you to spread his lies. So, let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work and learn how to have great discernment.

Once you have redeemed your time then it’s time to “endure sound doctrine.” To endure anything takes a lot of hard work. The Bible says, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11). In the beginning of their new life in Christ, they spent days, hours, and even minutes developing their sound doctrines of the faith. In the same way, at the beginning of my pilgrimage, I spent countless hours studying the many beautiful doctrines of our faith such as, justification by faith alone, the need for repentance and confession, and forgiveness that leads to reconciliation. I have looked fully into the depth of Hamartiology the doctrine of Sin and Soteriology the doctrine of Salvation. I studied and accepted the infallibility of all Scripture and its sufficiency to answer mankind’s deepest spiritual needs, along with every emotional and psychological problem plaguing him, believing that God has truly given us everything we need for all of life and godliness. I spent countless hours studying the doctrine of Eschatology or the teachings on last things, not only out of an inquisitive mind but out of a need to use those teachings to help us stand firm during the worst of times holding firmly to our beliefs. I have spent years studying every doctrine in-depth not to become educated or famous but to be a light for God’s wayward children in desperate times.

Dear friends, you simply cannot rely on the knowledge of others to see you through these dark days. We must all “endure,” that is, study hard all the beautiful doctrines from the Attributes of God to the work of the Holy Spirit and His gifts (Pneumatology), and the work of the Church founded by Christ (Ecclesiology). To study all these beautiful doctrines including Christology and Cosmology is not for just the Pastor or the professor of theology but all of God’s beloved children. As we study and apply all of these beautiful doctrines to our life then we will, through faith, grow up and become all that God wants us to be in His beloved Son, Jesus Christ. As we grow up in Christ then, and only then, will we have great discernment in this age of deception. If we do this, then God will begin to open your eyes to what’s really happening in the world and not what the false teachers and the proclaimers of conspiracy theories are trying to shove down your throat. Believe me, there is a reason for it! If they can keep you occupied with all this nonsense filling up your time, then you will not see what’s coming over the horizon. You will not see how the beast of worldly power will capture the entire world. Tragically most will not even know that they have been captured.

Finally, along with a good foundation of all these beautiful doctrines of our faith, we also have been given the indwelling Spirit that helps us to take this godly knowledge along with the spiritual gift of discernment to see what’s really happening in the world. Most will not see that this global lockdown has forced most to hang out longer on the internet and social media, which is not teaching them the truth but allowing them to assimilate a melting pot of knowledge that’s been synthesized for the palate of fallen humanity. The more this knowledge is broken down and synthesized the more it dilutes the truth where there is nothing left but the deceptive lies of the devil. Not only is it robbing you of your time, but it is preparing you for what lies ahead, to the coming out. As we come out of lockdown to a new world everyone will be expected to check in with their health care provider, their psychologist who will be putting them on a new regiment of drugs and lifelong counseling. If you don’t have great discernment you will not know that they are leading you down a path of total dependence on the State. Are we not already getting a taste of it by putting the entire population on socialized assistance? Once we become fully dependent upon the State then they will have total control of the masses. Only great discernment will see where this is all leading. Please, dear children, heed what has been written here. Welcome to the new world.

Listen to God, Before You Speak (Video)

People are in total shock like they have been awakened to a dysfunctional world, it’s like being suddenly cast into some sort of Twilight zone. The streets are empty, the shelves are empty at the market, and it’s rather haunting seeing so many people in the West wearing a face mask. Every day we get updates on the number of infected people from the virus and how many deaths the world has just counted.

Listen to God, Before You Speak

People are in total shock like they have been awakened to a dysfunctional world, it’s like being suddenly cast into some sort of Twilight zone. The streets are empty, the shelves are empty at the market, and it’s rather haunting seeing so many people in the West wearing a face mask. Every day we get updates on the number of infected people from the virus and how many deaths the world has just counted. For the first time in history everyone is being asked, some being told, to stay in their homes, not go to church, and limit their gatherings to ten people or less. This is already having a tremendous effect on the psyche of humanity. This isolation from physical contact with family and friends, with a sudden pull back from other friends on social media, is beginning to have an effect on the best of us. People are already starting to experience higher levels of stress, anxiety, panic attacks, and even depression. Schedules have been skewed and sleeping has become more erratic. People are crying out to their God and to their governments, asking what is going on? They are looking under every rock and behind every tree to find the answers they seek. Fear is purposefully driving people to chase after anyone and everyone who claims to have the truth about what’s going on in the world.

A couple of weeks ago we talked about how to hear God, see my video, “Why Can’t I hear God.” Today, we want to show you how important it is to listen to God before you speak. There are many people speaking today on the news media and social media that are not listening to God first before they speak. This is creating a lot of confusion and unfortunately leading a lot of people astray making them prime candidates for the coming Antichrist or the Beast of Revelation to draw them into his diabolical net. I noticed most people on social media don’t speak but share what someone else says. Well, let’s be clear, although you did not physically speak it yourself, the moment you shared it, then it became your voice. You are now responsible for it as if you spoke it yourself. The power of speaking forth words is well beyond our understanding (we will talk more about that later). Many a man, and especially Jesus Christ and His followers, turned the world upside down through their speaking forth. If God’s followers can do that, then be rest assured that Satan and his followers are trying to do the same thing. Therefore, we need to be careful when we speak our words forth either verbally or in a shared post. Believe me, they will have a tremendous impact on others and the world at large to build up or to destroy.

The Antichrist is already speaking through many people bringing his malicious power upon the earth leading many people to believe the lie and reject the truth. His biggest lie right now is to convince the unbelieving world that this Coronavirus, that’s causing a global pandemic, is not a plague or woe sent by God but just a virus caused by many different things, such as a biological weapon or the result of 5G cell phone towers. Without entering into a full dissertation about 5G let me summarize that there is no evidence of harmful effects medically. By far these are not the only far-fetched conspiracy theories circulating on the internet, one other that I will mention is simply called Q. What’s alarmingly heretical about this one is that it claims that we are all good people contrary to our religious faith (either Muslim or Christian) and that the only truly sinful people in the world are those in power. They say if the State will lock them up, then everything will be rosy. Nothing is further from the truth, because we have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Remove sin and our need for repentance will only destine us for the fiery pit of hell. There is great power in these spoken lies to create confusion, fear, and anxiety but most importantly to keep them from repentance because of God’s righteous plagues. As already stated, sharing these lies on the internet through your websites and social media is doing the devil’s work by speaking forth his lies to the world and most regrettably to your brothers and sisters in the Lord, possibly causing them to stumble too.

Yet, the answers that men are seeking are in the same place that they’ve always been, in the Word of God that’s made alive through the indwelling Spirit. In order to receive those words, you must not only be saved, but you must be close to the Lord and filled with His Spirit. You can’t flounder around in fear and expect to hear what the Lord has to say. The Bible says, “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you” (1Peter 4:12, ESV). Many Christians today, are both surprised and don’t realize that this is simply a trial to knock off the barnacles of the old sin nature to draw us closer to Him. Furthermore, they don’t realize that judgment will always begin with the house of God, for the Bible also says, “For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome of those who do not obey the gospel of God” (I Peter 4:17)? These are powerful words spoken by Apostle Peter, a follower of Jesus Christ. These are words that need to be spoken today and not the lies circulated by the devil. When we listen to God first and speak forth only what we hear from Him, then we witness the true power of His words that’s still capable of turning the whole world upside down. Even in lock-down and a changing economy, God’s precious children can continue to grow in truth and knowledge of their Savior. They can still become all that He wants us to be in Christ.

We must proclaim to the world that judgment is coming upon them, not to punish them, but to lead them to repentance. There is power in the words. We must proclaim to the fallen world that there is power in the gospel to make people into a new creation free from all of their past struggles. There is power in the words. We must proclaim to the world that the devil is a liar. There is power in the words. We must proclaim to the world that there are many false prophets and charlatans trying to lead you into darkness and great confusion by believing in and passing on their conspiracy theories. There is power in the words. We must proclaim that all these conspiracy theories are leading you and preparing you for the coming Antichrist and the Beast of Revelation. There is power in the words. We must proclaim that there is only one way to heaven and all other ways will lead you straight to hell. There is power in the words. We must proclaim that God has given us everything we need for life and godliness. There is power in the words. Finally, faith and trust in God alone will give you a new life in Christ, the seal of the Holy Spirit, and the promise of eternal life in heaven. There is power in the words. Dear children stop chasing after everything you see and read on the internet and return to the depth and width of God’s Holy Word, the Bible. There is power in the words, Amen.

Only God Can Lift the Veil (Video)

Only God can lift the veil on what’s really happening in the world. The President can’t do it. The News Services can’t do it. Preachers and prophets can’t do it, only God can lift the veil on what’s really happening in the world. We are not coming before you with what we think we know; we are only coming before you with clean hands and a pure heart. We are waiting patiently for God to speak and tell us what’s really happening in the world. Thus, says the LORD …After viewing this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.
