17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. 18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. 19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. 20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. (Romans 16:17-20 KJV)
How many times have you been deceived by what someone, your friend, have told you? Have you ever listened to a speech and later found the person was lying? In earlier blogs, tega227.com and faithingodministries.net, I have written about this. I have also said, I don’t believe or trust anyone including myself because I could accidentally lie to myself.
In the today’s world, information is given to you from many different sources. After a day or two you will have forgotten where you learned the information. The information could be the unadulterated truth, or it may be a low-down, dirty lie. You don’t know but you repeat whatever it is.
Be like mass media and know from where your source knowledge comes from, and be like it say in Romans, stay away from bad sources. Don’t listen to nor repeat a bad source. Someone you tell that lie to and they later find it to be a lie, may disown you as a teller of lies. It may backfire on you while you are thinking you have done a service by passing on the information.
Apparently, the present administration either have not read Romans or have not read the Bible at all or both. Every day there is a tweet or statement that, upon checking the validity of it, is an outright lie or the lie that is twisted to look like the truth. What make it worst, so many naive people will not check any source to find out if it is a lie or not. These people also believe anything that is told to them. They are the ones causing division among us because they are upholding the lie and the liars. God will judge them harshly because they are willing listeners.
As I have written many times, God will have His say about the situation that is now happening. Time is running out because we do not know when the Lord will have His way but, rest assured, He will have His way and those in the wrong will suffer dearly. Don’t wait until the last minute to finally see the truth because it may be too late.
Lookout for deception. Not all friends are true friends. Not all that you hear, read or see can pass the smell test. Life and time are short, too short to be wasting it by listening to liars when it is proven they are liars. Read the Bible and believe in it. God be your salvation.
