And the “Lies just keep on coming!”
Whether the secret, unconstitutional program was called “Echelon,” or “Prism,” or “main core,” or any of a dozen other “code-names” designed to keep people from realizing the perfidy of those who consider themselves rulers — but clearly not servants — it is now obvious that the “conspiracy theorists” were right all along. Power DOES corrupt! And Big Brother really IS watching, and listening, and spying, and groping, and lying about all of it. King Solomon was right, too, of course. There really is “nothing new under the sun,” either.
The Director of the “National Security Agency”, or NSA (once so officially denied even to exist that it was called “No Such Agency”) and the Director of National Intelligence [sic] and the President of the United States have all recently claimed that they are not “bugging” phone calls. They are not spying on people who were once “presumed innocent” without a lawful warrant. They are lying. And they have been caught – repeatedly – and yet are not even ashamed.
The “ends justify the means”, is the common rationale. After all, the “law” doesn’t matter (remember, ‘the Church’ has participated in that dispensational deception for about 17 centuries; if YHVH Himself cannot be trusted to keep His Word, and the “Law of God” can be done away with, or “nailed to the cross” – why would ANYONE think a mere Constitution or Bill of Rights written by men could possibly fare any better?)
And if we will not allow God or His Word in the Courts – or legislature – or White House – or especially in schools, then why would anyone be able to expect His protection? Better, we are told, to trust in fallen man — especially when he wears a uniform, and is often the only one allowed to carry a gun.
What is so astounding about all of these recent “revelations” of deceit, and lawlessness, and brazen chutzpah is the sheer boldness of the evil. Adolf Hitler once famously wrote of “the Big Lie”, repeated ad nauseum, which succeeds in deceiving the masses simply because it IS so bold, so “in your face”. People, he said, would simply be unwilling to accept that anyone could lie so openly. Propaganda and peer pressure would do the rest. Any perusal of the news today reveals that, so far as the princes of this world are concerned, Mein Kampf was correct. Or at least that most politicians and bureaucrats are reading his playbook, and certainly not the Bible.
And yet Scripture is all about Truth. It is literally the opposite of the cancerous Big Lies we see exposed worldwide today. And all that we who have “eyes to see” can observe in the world today was correctly foretold as well. Yahushua, in Matthew 24, spoke of lies so overwhelming that, “if possible, even the elect,” would be deceived. “See, I have told you beforehand.”
Shaul, or Paul, spoke several times about the attitudes reflected by such “haters of God“, and called them, among other things, “proud,” filled with unrighteousness, “covenant-breakers” (Romans 1) and predicted that, “in the last days, perilous times will come,” and that men will be headstrong, haughty, traitorous, despisers of good, and ultimately, “having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!”
The true “disconnect” however, is that people who refuse to trust in God, and indeed reject Him completely, even to the point of accepting what He calls “abomination,” would instead trust their lives, and their children’s lives, to the protection of men who have shown they cannot be trusted.
Elected officials in the United States of America — at least ‘once upon a time’ — took an oath before God to defend the Constitution “against all enemies”, including those in positions of power, within the gates. Now it has become clear that many of those same “public servants” not only lied about their perfidy, but lied before YHVH as well.
Why would we — or ANYONE — “trust” people who clearly cannot even be trusted to keep an OATH before YHVH?
The Biggest Lie of all is that YHVH cannot be trusted to keep His Word, but that somehow, liars who hate Him – can.
From such, turn away.
These six things does YHVH hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief,
A false witness that speaks lies, and he that sows discord among brethren. [Proverbs 6:16-19]
