If you are serious about walking in His ways….then you will take time to read this important lesson from the Holy Spirit. In the past, I have split up or shortened messages because I am aware of accusations that I need to keep messages short or people will not read. I am not sure it is good to limit the Holy Spirit. I think time is running shorter and shorter. So, this is for whosoever will take time and read…..
Beware of deception, distraction, and infiltration. Satan and his armies will work them in every area of life….personal, social, cultural, financial, religious, governmental, educational, entertainment, media, technological, national, international globalism, emotional, humanistic logic, science, spiritual deception – even in the true body of Christ! The wheat and tares grow right next to each other everywhere! Do you understand the danger of being influenced by the tares more than being influenced by the Word of God and the wheat? If so, then you are aware how dangerous it is to be ignorant of and apathetic in giving attention to the Word of God! If you do not know the truth, how can you spot a counterfeit? Or a distraction? Or recognize infiltration? How do you know what to believe?
DECEPTION has always been satan’s primary tactic to lure away from Creator Father and into worship of himself in his kingdom. It began when he lured one third of the angels to follow him in rebellion against Creator Father. It continued in deceiving Adam and Eve in the garden. All through the Bible we see deception happen over and over and over again! And Yeshua warns us that in the Last Days deception would be worse than ever….even to deceiving His elect! Be sure you know why you believe what you believe! If it is just because that is what you learned growing up, or what someone you respected told you, what you learned in school, or because that is what everyone today believes, then TIME TO WAKE UP, get out of any deception trap, and find out for yourself what is TRUTH!
Maybe you are fortunate and what you believe is true, but you still need to know why you believe it is true and confirm it by the Word of God and direct revelation of the Holy Spirit to your own spirit. If you are a follower of Yeshua Jesus, then YOU can learn from the Holy Spirit when you ask Him and listen and do what He says! YOU are supposed to be in close relationship to HIM!
DISTRACTION is also very popular as an evil tactic. Our flesh easily draws us into distractions for ease, comfort, pleasure, entertainment, feeling good, social acceptance, pride and worldly success, etc. How often have you heard people comment, “I am so busy!” Yet, we are the ones signing up for all of it! Did God ask you to do all those things? When worldly distractions and enticements are well fed, they can turn into greed.
There is also the other kind of distraction when resources are scarce. This is the distraction for survival of the fittest. It keeps people enslaved to the world system in order to survive. Along with this type of distraction, we see satan’s weapon of persecution and trouble. These storms keep people busy just trying to survive.
Let’s not forget INFILTRATION. It begins by masquerading his people as “one of the group” and eventually lifts them to a place of leadership. Once in leadership, they can “hire” in more of their kind. Once in leadership, they can set up training courses to teach the young their “new and improved” ways of thinking and doing. Before long, everyone in the group or organization is following the “new way” the “paradigm shift” or are “more enlightened” or “becoming a more advanced society” or “finding a higher spiritual awakening”. This becomes the new accepted normal. Does anyone go back to the Word of God to see if this new normal way is really His Way of Truth?
Everyone says peace and safety and security….and knowledge is increasing in the world…..but there is no real peace and no real wisdom or truth in worldiness.
Infiltration may be carried out on a human level, but its origins are higher:
Ephesians 6: 10-13, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
Do you know what the armor of God is? Are you wearing it or just saying you believe it and just talking about it? If we want protection, we need to put it on! We need to build on the Rock and get in the house!
Here is the good news Yeshua Jesus told us: John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
