This is spiritual intelligence for the Government, Media, Education and Religious spheres and intel regarding the culture war. Now remember, when I say culture war I am referring to the spiritual war in Revelation 12 which spilled from heaven to earth.
Soon, I’m going to address another holy grail and favorite saying by challenging you to focus on the Ephesians 6:11-12 which says:
"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."
How will I challenge you? I’ll challenge you by looking at this scripture in context of the book, the New Testament and then Old Testament scriptures just like I’ve been challenging the favorite quote from Matthew 7:1 that even unbelievers seem to know about “you shall note judge.”
The cry racism has become the go to strategy on the Democrat Socialist Left because they’ve found success in using guilt and shame for the past. It’s been as effective or more effective than the go to scripture that even unbelievers seem to know so well and works hand in hand: “THOU SHALT NOT JUDGE!” it seems like their actions declare they really only want this applied to themselves. Candidly, the “Me Too ” movement, LGBT etc. basically uses the same strategy with a different subject. It’s like the unholy trinity in their strategic verbal arsenal.
At the core of this strategy is the intent to use partial truths, guilt and shame to manipulate behavior. This is done by stirring up emotions with a false narrative which distracts from the truth and advances a demonic agenda.
Do you know who is tripped up by this an ensnared? Immature disciples, those who have not “studied to show themselves approved,” those who are ignorant of God's word and those who fear because they've not come to know the perfect love of God which casts out all fear.
Please hear me, I’m not saying this with a superior attitude, but rather with a tone of discovery. If you will, one beggar trying show another beggar where the bread is.
"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie,"
Because they choose to believe lies and reject the truth, God gives them over to strong delusion.
Know this! Satan is an equal opportunity offender. He only cares about the color of someone's skin as it pertains to his efforts to trip one up, sow division and discord and make others sin. The root of racism can be traced all the way back to antisemitism which is making a resurgence today along with the persecution of Christians. Why there are more martyrs today than ever before in history. But back to the topic.
The Epitome of Deceit
Now, many, not all I might add, whose ancestors were formerly oppressed, have leagued with the Democrat Party platform who authored that oppression. That is the epitome of warfare. The demonic working through the platform has succeeded in winning over the ones they sought to oppress and have even enlisted their help in continuing their destruction. Talk about deceit.
They’ve so twisted their memory of history they’ve joined with their oppressors and continue to murder and destroy their community. Remember the spiritual law in 1 Corinthians 15:46 which teaches us that the natural comes first (ie. physical slavery) and then the spiritual (ie. abortion murders 3x more than other ethnicities, welfare policies which undermine families such that more than 70% are fatherless, etc.)
How to Tell when a Nation is Discipled
Do you know how you can tell when a nation has been discipled? That's our Matthew 28:19-20 mandate. Go and make disciples of all nations. It begins with a harvest of souls followed by their discipleship. When matured, that nation's laws will reflect the truth found in God's word. For example, liberty and justice for all is merely a reflection of God's tremendous love for all humanity and He looks for a harvest out of every tribe, tongue, people and nation.
So our civil laws which once oppressed a people, have changed such that those who kneel in the NFL protesting racism and slavery are multimillionaires. They are not slaves. The laws have changed such one who was once oppressed has risen to the highest office in the land. Guilt from the past caused many to ignore his ideas and focus on just the color of his skin and not the content of his character. My friends, ANY DECISION MADE BASED UPON A PERSON’S SKIN COLOR IS A FORM OF RACISM whether it is for or against that person or people group.
Justice Does not Use Guilt & Shame to Manipulate for Personal Gain
It is not justice to use shame and guilt from other people’s past to manipulate for personal gain whether it be for money or political power. You can identify those whom I mean by merely using Matthew 7:15-20 where Jesus describes how to recognize a "false prophet." You will recognize them by their fruit; character! What follows their character, often wealth and power gleaned by means using Satan's modus operandi and spreading his lying agenda.
History and the Truth
Every ethnicity has people who make decisions like that. Racism does exist but nothing on the scale like it was. It's like everyone forgets history which records how Muslims in Africa initiated the slave trade and still practice it today. Note, I only highlight this to add to the historical narrative as this is rarely shared in today's policital narrative. It's one of the spiritual reasons as to why the Democratic Left seeks to destroy history, flags and statutes which are actually their party's history.
But know, these insights are in no way a defense of the indefensible. But did you know that the first slave owner in America was Anthony Johnson, a black man. Click for the Berkerly EDU article. It was William Wilberforce, a man in England's Parliament, who after becoming a Christian facilitated the passing of laws that ended the slave trade. Click here for Wikipedia. It was Christians opposed to slavery which led to the founding of the Republican Party which gave us President Lincoln. Click for the History channel. The very first black men voted into Congress where Republicans in 1868 and 1872. Click here for Wikipedia. That's the truth and I've not even scratched the surface.
But today, civil laws have changed such that that racism is illegal and the disgust of racism is even reflected in the majority of public opinion. For the most part everyone acknowledges the sin and iniquity of the forefathers that sinned. But very few seem to remember the forefathers who DID NOT SIN but rather fought and died to overturn that unrighteousness and deliver an oppressed people. Today, the very system who once ruled that African Americans were not fully human has long been overturned, corrected and condemned. Where is the gratitude for those who died so that others could be free?
The Oppression Continues But the Strategy Changed because the Laws Changed
But the party who were the originators of this scourge of thought, continues to incite racism. Only now, it has changed its strategy because laws have changed such that the devil’s tactics to incite destruction have changed and this story simply provides an object lesson for us to focus on the demonic’s modus operandi.
How can you tell? The Democratic Party is historically the political party Satan worked through to enslave a people. It’s the same political party platform that authored and passed the Jim Crow laws, founded the military arm of the Democrat Party called the Klu Klux Klan or the KKK. It’s the political party which adopted Margaret Sanger’s strategy originally called the Negro Project which included the plan to exterminate the black race through even hiring ministers to help convince their community that abortion was a good thing. Today, it's called Planned Parenthood.
The Focus is on Ministers and those who Espouse they are Christians
Why some ministers today have become personally wealthy leveraging this issue and using guilt and shame from the past to keep the issue alive. I marvel at the ignorance of God's people. So note, my biggest issue is with ministers and those who call themselves Christians. The Bible clearly teaches that:
- Ezekiel 18:20 "The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself."
- Matthew 6:13-14 " “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." So the ministers, the reverends who say they represent the Lord yet continually stir up old wounds are teaching unforgiveness which creates a root of bitterness.
- Hebrews 12:14-15 "Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;"
But know this, there is personal accountability. There is a day of reckoning for all of us. Therefore, it is a great concern of mine and I must warn you, that those who espouse to be Christian but do not forgive, you won't be forgiven. It's wrong to seek vengeance for the father's sin from the sons and daughters. Forgiveness must be demonstrated in more than words and a thought. It must be followed by action. That's the fruit of repentance. In cases like this it's where vengeance and retribution to the Lord.
The Injustice Continues through the Deceived
But there are those who continue fanning the flames of long past injustice which has been erased by laws which replaced the unjust ones. Today Planned Murderhood, the darling of the Democrats still kill three times more beautiful black children in places like New York than other ethnic communities yet roughly 90% of the African American community still supports this party. All this was accomplished through lies, deceit, bribes, murder, destruction, self-promotion etc. All of these attributes are characteristics of the root of Satan and have been worked through his children who serve his agenda. Such was the fruit of the Democratic President Lyndon B Johnson.
Then when you understand another name for Satan is the Devil, or in the Greek diablos, which means “FALSE ACCUSER OR SLANDERER” then you will understand what is happening in this case and it won’t surprise you.
The Demonic Needs a Host to Work Through
My friends, the demonic needs a host, giving it hands and feet to commit crimes and a mouth and tongue to release gossip, slander and false accusations. To do this, Satan needs a host, whose mind is twisted. A mind who’s been indoctrinated with a false world view which frames issues with lies so that it can create a false narrative. A faux or pseudo map of an issue with a false high ground.
That’s why this story highlights. It’s trying to perpetuate a false narrative. It's part of their emphasis to seek a moral high ground. Remember, in a culture war, he who controls the language or narrative controls the issue. The moral high ground provides a strong base to launch offensive operations from.
Why? Because the high ground gives them an advantage. It always does in a war whether it is a physical, cultural or spiritual war. Take a look at this recent news report on Fox News. The theme of the report was the Left's seeking to take the 'Moral High Ground." But the report notes the hypocrisy in issue after issue.
Lessons to Learn in the Culture War
He who controls the language defines the issues.
He who controls the moral high ground has an advantage.
No matter what the issue, Satan uses guilt and shame to manipulate.
The unholy trinity of Satan's strategy is unforgiveness, guilt and shame.
To navigate a false narrative your moral compass must be recalibrated with the Truth.
To confront a false narrative your spine must be infused with God's love which casts out all fear.
This is a Learning Moment
Remember, this is a learning moment. I highlight this to emphasize Satan's tactics.
This is why the Bible teaches us as believers to run to the mountain of the Lord. Why? The high ground gives us an advantage. Isaiah 2:2-3 teaches us that in the latter days the MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD’S HOUSE shall be established over all other mountains (think spheres of society such as religion, government, media, etc.). This mountain is first a prayer mountain. Prayer is our first step in this battle. But understand, no war is ever won only through an air (prayer) campaign. It requires boots on the ground.
God Needs Your Mouth, Tongue, Hands and Feet
God needs a host too. Someone who'll speak the truth. Someone who’ll act like Jesus did. This has been modeled all through out scripture through both men and women.
God needs a host to, someone who have made themselves available to be reformed and transformed by the renewing of their mind. Someone who’s moral compass is calibrated to the truth who has been infused with His love, you know, ‘Christ in you, the hope of glory.” (Col 1:27). God needs one He can send who’d lend their mouth, tongue to Him. God needs one whose feet would take them where God leads them. One who’s feet is shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6:15). One whose hands will be lent to the Lord for Him to stretch forth to heal and deliver (Hebrews 6:2 & Acts 4:30).
Hypocrite - the Greek Origin
Assuming the narrative in this case unfolds as presented in this article, why are you surprised that an “actor” which by the way is the origin of hypocrite in the Greek, would stage something to fit a narrative they so desperately want to believe?
Obviously, the spiritual war is not won. The truth is coming out. That’s a win, but this guys soul is still unredeemed. Pray for his salvation, pray for the salvation of those who were hired to stage an incident. Pray the veil is lifted off the deceived and pray and call forth the deceived out of a spiritual Babylon. But recognize that civil authorities, which are given by God must act to render truth and justice when the spiritual fails (Romans 13:1-5).
It's Time for the Church to Mature
What’s my point? The battle we fight does not start with flesh and blood. It must begin in prayer, but it does involve flesh and blood. I’ve heard so many quote we don’t fight against flesh and blood and the lack of understanding scripture has led to immature responses such that there is only prayer minus faith in action with wisdom.
This leaves many in Satan’s grip bound for hell with Him, because no one ever shares the truth with those who are bound. Why? Fear of conflict. Fear of being wounded in this spiritual war. Why? Fear of being falsely accused..... and the list goes on.
Join Me in Praying
Lord, I pray for a Great Awakening and for a harvest worthy of the sacrifice of Your Son. I pray for transformed men and women, changed by your love, undergirded by your wisdom to be sent. Oh Lord, send laborers into the harvest. I pray for the Truth to be exalted and every lie exposed and I pray for the maturing of Your Church in Jesus mighty name.
