Sanctify them through
thy truth: thy word is truth.
(John 17:17, KJV)
at least this AM, we are taking a break from the news and
looking at the issue of truth.
The passage above from John, I think is most telling in its
simplicity. This was always a mark of John's gospel and his
letters. In their simple style and humble phrasing
they are still some of the most poignant and hard hitting
truth's of the gospel. In the above passage, Christ
defines what Truth is. God's word that is the truth. The
reality, existence and power of God. That is truth. What God
expects of his and what he has revealed about himself in his
word, that is truth. The above passage is part of a long
prayer that Christ made for his disciples before the cross.
Christ knew his hour had come and that he had to get his
disciples ready for their work when he was gone. But in
order to be of use to God, one must be sanctified,
consecrated or set apart for his work. The Greek for
The key here in this passage is two fold. Truth - real truth
is a key part of holiness. To know, understand and live the
truth of God. What is that Truth? It is personified in the
person and work of Jesus Christ.
Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by
(John 14:6, KJV)
God revealed key portions of his truth to Abraham, Moses
and the prophets. But God's whole revelation to mankind had its
culmination in the work of Christ. God made his words and his
truth in many places in the New Testament in a very simple, easily
accessible form so that people of all walks of life could
understand the simplicity of the Gospel - that God so loved
the world that he gave his only begotten son so that we who
believe on him may not perish but have life everlasting.
In this system that is coming, the truth is the enemy. The truth of
God even the truth about our times. Why? Because any real truth
leads one to new truths. Truth in this respect is like a path, a
way. Once you find the Truth, more truths are opened up to you and
the more open you are to it, the more of it you find.
But the truth is a hard thing. It is singular. There is only one
truth. There are many lies and this is where the devil gets his
power. It comes from the power of confusion and doubt. A person
who does not like a particular truth is a prime candidate for
deceit. When disinformants and spin-meisters come on the tube,
their job is invariably to spin events in such a ways as to keep a
person from the Truth and in a mental corral, where they can be
controlled and manipulated.
They have a hundred different 'spins' and an army of alternative
'fact' makers who help them create and sustain various narratives
that are designed specifically to lead you away from the truth
about any given situation. On a spiritual level, it's the same
thing. There are hundreds of different religions, sects and
denominations. There are even more philosophies and pseudo
spiritual views that are held my many who dwell here on earth.
Satan loves religion. It's his best known and most
important subject and field of endeavor. I know this because
I know how who some of the people are whose job it is to mis and
disinform Christians using their jobs in the Intelligence
Community. They spread lies and disinformation and they did that
to me, frittering away 20+ years of friendship on the alter of
false narratives, Islamic narratives, lies and later a set up.
I have not written
unto you because ye know not the truth,
Because today, there
is so much effort and money being spent to spread lies,
disinformation and false narratives, I want to take a little
time today to talk about this phenomenon and why so many of
the devils minions are working so very hard to move people
away from the Truth... any truth. In short, it is so that lies
can be enthroned and the father of lies can one day reign.
but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the
(1 John 2:21, KJV)
His whole M.O. will be to lie, mock the truth and blaspheme
him who is the ultimate truth and sits on the throne of
heaven. When we come to the final 42 month system, we see the
false prophet (clearly some kind of religious figure) whose
job it is to Blaspheme God or if we put it another way, show
supreme contempt for the source of all truth, God.
And there was given
unto him a mouth speaking great things and
So we see that this
whole idea of falsehoods, blasphemy and the false (lying)
prophet in the last days has its linkages. But in order for
that wicked man to be revealed and that system to be put in
place, the world must be prepared to accept the big lie. How
do you do that?
and power was given unto him to continue forty and two
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God,
to blaspheme his name,
and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints,
and to overcome them:
and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues,
With a Thousand little lies!
When people believe and act on lies...
this is the devils main purpose. To lead people away from the
truth any truth. Truth is his enemy always has been so the
ammunition in his arsenal comprise of things like falsehoods,
mockery of the truth, misdirection, important omissions of key
information to lend credence to a false narrative etc. These
are tools that are used to move people away from the truth.
Once that happens, a carefully prepared lie can then be put
forward that can be bolstered by the foundation of
misdirections, mockery and false facts that he has and is so
adeptly preparing for the world to accept at the proper
time. I think the idea and principle of this is set down
with striking clarity by the Angel who gave the vision to the
And out of one of
them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding
toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the
pleasant land. And it waxed great, even to the
host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the
stars to the ground, and stamped upon them.
Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the
host, and by him the
daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his
sanctuary was cast down.
And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by
reason of transgression,
and it cast down the truth to the ground;
and it practised, and prospered.
(Daniel 8:9-12 [KJVA])
We are not going to try and identify this little horn here.
No rather we are going to look at a part of how it operates. First
of all we note it's arrogance. It stamps on a host of stars to the
ground. Stars are symbolic of both Angels and saints. He takes
away the daily sacrifice (forbids the worship of the true God), he
magnifies or glorifies himself. The word for magnify in this
passage is this one.
The major take away here is that
A primitive root; properly to twist (compare H1434),
that is, to be (causatively make) large (in various senses,
as in body, mind, estate or honor, also in pride): -
advance, boast, bring up, exceed, excellent, be (-come, do,
give, make, wax), great (-er, come to . . estate, + things),
grow (up), increase, lift up, magnify (-ifical), be much set
by, nourish (up), pass, promote, proudly [spoken], tower.

1. It attacks and casts down the Host of God
2. It is arrogant and glorifies itself and temporarily prospers
in so doing.
3. It is truth averse and seeks to destroy it.
4. It seeks to destroy the true worship of God.
Jesus saith unto him, I am
the way, the truth, and the life:
no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Consequently, the powers that be who are under the inspiration of
the evil one work overtime to undermine truth wherever it is found.
Many secularists even now are decrying the lack of truth in our
Media. Look at Dr. Roberts and what
he has to say. ConsortiumNews has a piece
today along similar lines. Even those who know not God
but still have a conscience and don't like being had and manipulated
understand a key part of the battle that the world is in right now.
It is a battle that the devil is winning and one that will bring him
a temporary victory when he can gain control of much of the world
for that brief period of time, via deceit.
The powers of deceit? Brothers we can see them now in our news
reporting and readers here do not need me to point out these things
today. When the Apostle Paul laid out how the man of sin would come
onto the scene the concepts of lies and deceit are clearly and
methodically spelled out.
And then shall that
Wicked be revealed,
So here we see a very similar theme. Something very wicked gets
revealed and is able to garner considerable power here on earth. It
uses lies (lying wonders) to accomplish its ends. It is
incredibly deceptive and is targeting whom? Those who
are Truth Averse or as Paul put it, 'received not the
love of the truth'.
whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth,
and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even
him, whose coming
is after the working of Satan with all power and signs
and lying wonders,
And with all deceivableness of
unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth,
that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong
that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth,
but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Think about some of the evil things that have come out recently. The
CIA being able to create a false trail evidence of cyber-attacks to
blame someone else. The whole purpose? To lie and blame someone else
for the evil that they do. Wickedness in the form of a government
agency as well as deceit.

Debunking sites, mostly to debunk things they don't want out in the

Narrative Control? Again, we see the same kinds of things out here
daily in our media. The whole idea is to avert ones eyes to the
truth and focus on a narrative that gives someone else money and

In these dark times and the darker ones that are coming, it is going
to be exceptionally difficult to find the truth and even harder for
truth tellers to be able to do it. It is already pretty hard.
Look at the crap
they tried to pull on me! But my God protected me from their
satanic/racist and Islamic stratagems. But as the days pass it will
be even more difficult. The last days are marked by considerable
spiritual darkness. A man cannot see in the dark and this is one
reason why the devil gets so much power. It's easy to mislead a
person into a chasm if he is blindfolded and bumping around in deep
dark cave. But if there is light and his eyes are open, deceiving
him into falling into such a crevasse is much more difficult.
This is why we as Christians need light - a real light in these
times. We must see where we are going and the only way to do that in
dark times is with God's word.
Do you want to know which way to go? Where to walk and how best to
get where God wants you to go? Go to the word. God will guide those
who earnestly seek his guidance and his ways. How did Christ put it?
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.
Then spake Jesus again
unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.
Brothers and sisters. The times are getting darker and
if we are seeing more and more stories even from main stream sources
of a 'post
truth' news media, it is because that really is what is
happening. Truth no longer sells newsprint or ads. Lies, falsehoods,
hate, emotion, fear, anger and sex... we mustn't forget sex... these
are what the people want. It does not matter if what is said is even
half true. Does it elicit a fiery emotional reaction? Does it lend
support to a narrative? This is what we see in our reporting these
In a post truth age, we need Gods word even more. That and access to
good information and perspective. Without it we will not know what
is going on nor fully understand the times we are in as our Lord
told us to do.
We will be looking to the east when what the Lord wants us to see is
in the west.
May God grant all who read this wisdom, light, peace and
understanding in these most deceptive times.
