Divulging, Disseminating, and Declaring

Daily Post:  Revelation

rumor

Those of you reading today who know me well, may think I will shamelessly use this article to promote my recently published commentary/bible study on the Book of Revelation.  Perhaps I will, but that will come later in the article, if at all.  Subtle huh?

Revelation as a concept is about information (true or false) coming to light in various forms, which was not previously known.  It is in fact what the whole James Comey testimony is all about… everyone wants to hear about the secret conversations and dialogue between the former FBI director and President Trump.  Regardless of your particular stance on the substantive issues, there has been no “smoking gun” revelation. In fact, on the face of it, at least as I evaluate what’s been said, Comey has all but come out and said “the President did nothing illegal.”  Yet it still appears to me that the entire process was, and continues to be, driven by the agenda to discredit Donald Trump as our President.  Rumor mills and rumor mongering are bad enough, but when journalists become nothing more than mouth pieces for the political elite on both sides of the aisle, spewing and spuriously spreading fake news, or worse treasonous ideas, somethings gotta give!

Divulging information which is not intended to be revealed, such as classified data of any kind, is at the very least suspicious, because one has to ask “why was this shared?”  James Comey has admitted to leaking his memos to his friend, and doing so with the full knowledge that he, Comey, could then not prevent them from being revealed publicly.  Is this act alone not a crime?  Politics are the bane of my existence and why I choose to listen as little as possible to self-proclaimed pundits and their ego-based opinions about what is or is not true in Washington these days.  Who will save us from this odious quagmire?  Clearly we can’t save ourselves.

But isn’t that what the Bible reveals to mankind in the first place?  If Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, and those first generations of humanity had been capable of saving themselves from self-destruction, I’m quite sure they would have.  But the first couple was banished from the Garden, and one of the first brothers killed the other, all out of an ego-centric mindset that they were above God’s rules.  Things haven’t gotten any better since.  In fact, one might say we are far, far removed from what God intended for mankind to be.  God has revealed in Scripture just how far He is willing to go to help mankind live as He designed us to live.  First God chose a man, Noah, to preserve the various species of creation when God judged the evil men in the world through a flood.  Then God chose a man, Abraham, to establish a nation of people who would be God’s people declaring God’s glory and blessing to the world.  When that failed, because the people failed, God sent His own Son, Jesus, to reveal the full plan of God’s great love for mankind.

God has divulged, disseminated, and declared His love for all mankind, yet men and women alike continue to deny His existence.  Our world is so filled with hate, contempt, and evil, it could be said that God doesn’t recognize the place anymore.  Those who continue in their faithful following of God’s revelation, and who do so with great resolve, are finding it increasingly difficult to exist on this hostile planet.  Who will save us from this morass of self-deluded evil?

God’s revelation is clear.

Genesis 6:3
Then the LORD said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 

Matthew 24:37
For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.  For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Revelation 1:1-3
The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place; and He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John, who testified to the word of God and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, even to all that he saw. Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of the prophecy, and heed the things which are written in it; for the time is near.

From the very beginning until the very end, God’s marvelous grace has been divulged, disseminated, and declared to mankind.  The only thing which will save us from the horrible mess we’ve created, is the coming of Jesus Christ the King.  Until then, we will witness continued repetition of the colossal errors committed to, and fed by, the human hunger for power, prestige, and position.  One day, ALL will bow before the King of the universe, this I declare to you from the authority of Scripture.

Romans 14:11
For it is written, “AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.” 

Philippians 2:9-11
For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Contemptuous Masquerade

Farce

farce

The very idea that a political party, in partnership with the all-too-willing efforts of the liberal media, should be able to stir up such a contemptuous masquerade of accusation and finder-pointing, is a farce in the ultimate sense of the word.  Choose a synonym for what we’re seeing today, here, I’ll give you a few:  mockery, travesty, absurdity, sham, pretense, charade, joke.  Here’s one that fits: buffoonery.  The talking heads and the money grubbing, entitlement loving, power hungry D.C. elite look more like the image above.  Should we be worried?  You betcha!

The air is electrified, and the over-ripe rancid smell of smut-minded politicians is everywhere, while their double-standard media mogul friends pollutes the communication systems of our land.  “Impeachment” is used in every other word, in every possible media source available on TV’s, Radios, and hand-held mobile devices.  Nothing has been as divisive in our nation as the farce that is happening today in the Capital.  History does tend to repeat itself, because contemptuous men and women live out the purposes and agendas of a greater power.

Consider for a moment my argument, that the attitude being portrayed today in this nation is nothing more than the repetitive core problem that began thousands and thousands of years ago. Two young men, brought two separate offerings to the God of Creation.  One brought something less than his best.  One brought not just the best, but the best part of the best.  God in His wisdom was pleased with one and not the other.  Can you guess which one?  Yep, God was pleased with Abel’s fat offering, and not pleased with Cain’s food offering.  What happened next?

While the Smother’s brothers may have perfected the “Mom likes you best” farce, in real life it was and continues to be a lot uglier picture, and it certainly isn’t funny.  Cain got angry.  His anger turned contemptuous.  His contempt for his brother turned murderous and able went on to meet His maker at the hands of a jealous man.  [Genesis 4]

Yet, we just don’t get it.  Mankind since that dawn of destruction just outside the original Garden of innocence, has murdered countless brothers, fathers, sisters, and mothers in jealous fits of rage.  I suggest to you that if it goes unchecked, if we don’t rein in the monster we’ve let out of the box, the rage and contempt being displayed in the political arena will become the stepping stone to blood-letting not seen in this country since the Civil War, (which by the way did happen, regardless of how many statues we destroy.)

Neither the power moguls, nor the liberal media, will yield their hearts to the call of God, since they are both self-serving entities who see themselves as gods.  Wielding their power, writing their stories, talking into the cameras, all for the benefit of self, and personal agendas, the contemptuous masquerade music plays on.  It’s growing stronger, with every beat of the war drums.  It’s permeating into personal relationship as individuals take sides, drawing lines in the sands of defiance.  Make no mistake, we are already at war.  We just can’t see it.

Ephesians 6:10-12
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.  Put on the full armor of God, so that you can make your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Who’s perpetuating the contemptuous masquerade?  The rulers, powers, and world forces of darkness, the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. We are at war.

It ever you turned to the word of God for wisdom and direction, it should be now.  May you dive deep into His thoughts and will, yielding your life to Him completely.  And may He save us from our contemptuous selves.
