Pattern of Lies

How to not be Fooled by the Lies

We see how to not be deceived by the pattern of lies, liars, and lying spirits. We can look around us and see that we , our friends, and a good deal of our nation has been deceived, and badly so.  We have a story in the Bible about a liar sent to be used in warfare.   His name was Rabshakeh, and he was a captain, sent my a brutal marauding emperor Senacharib, to talk to the men of Judah, get them snookered, discouraged, and confused. Thus, he hoped to make his battle against the easier. Actually, he was pretty good at it. Rabshakeh used a pattern of accusations, lies, and false deals.  it might have worked had the Judahites not believed in God; had they not known something about that God was different; had there not been a prophet on the seen and a good king.   Isaiah 37( & II Chronicles 36 and 2Kings 18 & 19)

Lies, Accusations, Projections, Intimidation, Misleading Deals

We are going to look at prophet Isaiah’s memory of the incident. he doesn’t sanitize the picture that Rabshakeh paints as much as Ii Chronicles.  Fear is a weapon. Confusion is a weapon. But hope for normalcy can also be a weapon. Notice that he gives misleading deals, painted with comforting words. The kingdom needed to take a step back and carefully consider. They needed to compare what they were hearing with what they knew. They needed to consult God.

is This Really an Attack on the Church?

In the final analysis, the attack was on God and God’s character. Rabshakeh was only a captain, doing what his emperor was telling him.  That emperor worshiped an idol that today we think really was a front for a demon.  Anyway, God was personally confronted. Not just the religion; not just the kingdom, not just all the people, but the thing went to the depth. Rabshakeh used God’s person name and said over and over that that God could not stand up to the Assyrians.

And so, God took it personally. We see in the end of the story, how God reserved the lat move for Himself. Judah won without fighting this time. Most of the time, they did have to show up. This time, they had to just not be deceived by the lying.

So, today, we focus on the pattern of lying.

If this is not very clear to you, would you like a retrospective, along with a course in reasoning? Seriously, I am so amazed in a bad way at how people have been so fooled. Can people really be that stupid? Are that many people really paid off? What is going on?

Please please do share this episode with your pastor!

Here are some pastors who say 1) enough is enough and 2) pastors, you had better get on board. https://flashpoint.govictory.com/episode/flashpoint-enough-is-enough-pray-eric-metaxas-dutch-sheets-mario-murillo/   Please listen to the end, where they pray for pastors. You will see it is straightforward, but upbeat.

Winning the War with Praise and Prophets

What happens when you are attacked? Viciously. Unnecessarily?
Good news! God takes care of His.
From the lesson of King Jehosaphat — he sought the Lord
he listened to the answers – through the Word, through the prophets
he did as told
He showed up
The Lord fought the battle by setting “ambushments.” The enemy killed themselves.
The kingdom of Judah was left with spoils of war. Then they had rest, peace.

Notice some of the details in the story! Why did the army have so very many people? Why did they have so very many jewels?
Notice that the enemy, which offered to start war, ended fighting with itself. Notice that those who just wanted peace and quiet finally got it.
There are lots of lessons here. I leave some quiet time in the reading, so you can think– and apply it to today.

Some of the aggression we are facing is so egregious that it is hard to even believe. The slander is so ridiculous. The people of God have been altogether too sweet. But the evil always overplays its hand, we say. God in this case, “set ambushments.” The Kingdom of Judah had to show up and sent their praise team ahead of their army. The enemy killed each others. Then there was 3 days of picking up jewelry etc. Wow.

Today, too, we should trust the Lord. We will have to show up. “God is in control” is normally a cop-out. Nevertheless, the prophets that I trust have said encouraging things. It is time to continue believing. However, I do rejoice at the news of this weeks, that many more people are showing up.

Here is Steve Turley’s collection about activities in Australia. This is the most fulsome video I’ve seen, relying mostly on Avi Yemeni’s, Rebel News, reporting. Union members confront union leaders in cahoots with government over-reach, in show of force that police can’t intimidate. Notice particularly 8:31, shown widely. Mature construction worker, watching from grassy sideline is aggressed upon by cop in riot gear and assault rifle, yelling, doesn’t move, and sees cop retreat. Comments heard include, “We are not afraid anymore.”

As We Celebrate Our National Heritage, Let’s Also Spark a Legacy in our Children

We are coming up to our Independence Day Celebration, July the 4th.

Given the severe trials our nation is undergoing, it is a good time to consider our national heritage in godliness. Not just the founders, but leading clergy and thinkers for the next century said that they didn’t think that a democratic republic would stand without having first stood on the virtuous character created by Biblical godliness. This is clearly controversial today. The controversy demonstrates its truth.

This year, let’s celebrate with more gusto. Let’s add prayers of repentance and thanksgiving to our usual celebration. This, not fireworks, were the center of the celebration during the founders’ time. Let’s pray in faith and eat cake!

Let\s be sure we also consider our children. Let’s take time to talk about our nation with our children. While we are waiting for those awesome firework, let’s talk about what we are celebrating. What we fear and what we hope for. Much of our problem stems from lack of conversation between the generations – and lack of responsibility, as economic pressure has encouraged us to leave our children to the care of others.

Today we will re-air a popular episode on how we, not the government, are the village that children need. of course, God planned for a mother and a father to rear children. But an extended family and a congregation help, too, don’t they? In Mayberry, the whole city might help, but no one hopes for that today. so, let’s work to make our extended families and congregations work. And maybe, just maybe, we could extend ourselves to helping those children who don’t have parents, much family, or a congregation — yet.

As we celebrate our national heritage, let’s also spark a legacy in our children.
