Lifting The Veil That Blinds Us….
All that points to the Spirit of Wisdom set apart, the same as Solomon sought to be taught of and learn all things from to be wise in knowledge and direct his path. Shall we not also ask now to lift the veil to see the truth? To see lies and deceit and observe good versus evil in discernment. What then do we do to see such things presented together and what is our measuring line and scale of balance to know what is true and what is a lie?
Do we become swayed in other lies? Or do we search until the truth is found? When found, what are the tests we must know to prove it as true? For when we go to the origin of the matter and see it clearly, can we then say…the origin or the matter changed a hundred years later? Perhaps it was craftily changed the next day? Or perhaps the origin changed a thousand years later or two thousand?
Can an origin of a matter be changed in God’s records or is that the gift of crafty men to do such trickery? And if trickery, what purpose does it pose to serve for those who craft it? Are we all who hear a thing to simply believe it because it has been told for so long it is now a well established tradition?
In that logic, then who is not to say Belial is not the origin of truth? For this is deceit of man, guided by tradition and deceit of evil men who established and declared an orthodox that the Lord did not declare. Many of these are Words that the Lord declared not, nor did Wisdom whisper in a vision.
Today we watch and observe in our own land of Sodom and Gomorrah the unjust declarations of man. The lies they shout as true, the boldness of each lie from the liars mouth is so obvious to those who have the Lord’s eyes and yet so many fall into traps of deceit seeking the truth and asking in vain to the liars to tell them what is a truth. Itching ears eager to know, impatient and demanding truth, any truth and in vain accepting lies in its place to be satisfied with something. Even knowing it is a lie, yet many are filled up and close the book. Satisfied for now, declaring they are learned…yet, they know not and are weary and naked without the truth.
Their belly is satisfied with what they were fed. Being satisfied they hunger no more or go about to search, instead they lay back and now defend with all their heart, a lie, because they were fed and made satisfied.
False doctrine has been a successful jab. A false shot that alters the mRNA of the truth of God’s creation, mankind’s history and even future into a twisted contortion disabling the learned and ever causing eternal death to many.
Because they believed a lie.
Does a watchman see the danger and say, “It’s not worth warning the people of the city that the enemy approaches for they will believe it is a lamb? All because in the dark they do not see the teeth? They only see the shadow of what is approaching. In seeing the shadow they argue. They despise the watchman for he has created alarm that disrupted their night and their dreams. They are awakened out from their sleep and are angry because they see no devouring jaws with their sleepy eyes.
How dare the watchman say such troubling things that disturb their sleep they shout! Away with the watchman! Let him keep his mouth shut in the night. Yes, this all can wait until the morning and then, in the day we shall see and we shall decide by majority what is and what is not! Away with the watchman!
So what does the watchman do to warn the people when they stuff their ears and shout to go back to sleep? Is it not what took place in Sodom? Lot and his wife and daughters went out by the warning of the angels and the sons in law wanted no part of their madness and went back to sleep. Believing they had all gone mad, believing not in angels and instead chose to believe their wives had listened to a lie from strangers and foolishly followed their command to leave along with Lot and their mother in law.
For had their eyes been opened to see the danger, would they have not left also, instead of going back to sleep? Indeed they would have left, but, their eyes were shut and their ears scoffed at what they heard, believing it not.
In leaving, even Lot’s wife had doubt, missing what she had left, wondering if she was following Lot’s instruction blindly. Or so it appeared, for in that lack of belief she looked back and longed for what was her home, her sense of what was normal to her and when her eyes locked onto the grave destruction, she too turned into a pillar or pile of salt, disintegrated by her own free will to think it was better there, in Sodom. It’s as though she felt in her heart a longing for the corrupt lifestyle in the city of lawlessness for she was accustomed to its’ ways after many years of enduring it…and in thinking and feeling, she chose in her heart a longing to go back, a missing of sorts of her life there,. Either way and for whatever reason, the scripture lends the reasoning that she chose in her heart the longing to go back. It was her own free will that caused her peril.
So why then do we believe we are any different in our testing in our day of trial. For there is nothing new under the sun and we have all been warned of this hour and the signs to watch for by our Lord Jesus the Son of God who told us all things; and by the prophets who by the Holy Spirit warned us of the same.
So let him who has ears to hear, indeed hear, and he who has eyes to see, indeed see, and let he who seeks wisdom seek it and receive it. For there is much to know and to learn. For faith in the word and hunger in seeking it are two separate things. Until one can see how the two join together to become the one….he will fall short of receiving the fullness of both. For the one who is learned has yet more to learn always.
9 Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. 10 For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. 11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: 12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned. 13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men: 14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. 15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?
Seek wisdom first and in so doing ask to understand her nature as Solomon asked of her purpose and her being.
Wisdom of Solomon – Chapter 8
1 Wisdom reacheth from one end to another mightily: and sweetly doth she order all things.
2 I loved her, and sought her out from my youth, I desired to make her my spouse, and I was a lover of her beauty.
3 In that she is conversant with God, she magnifieth her nobility: yea, the Lord of all things himself loved her.
4 For she is privy to the mysteries of the knowledge of God, and a lover of his works.
5 If riches be a possession to be desired in this life; what is richer than wisdom, that worketh all things?
6 And if prudence work; who of all that are is a more cunning workman than she?
7 And if a man love righteousness her labours are virtues: for she teacheth temperance and prudence, justice and fortitude: which are such things, as men can have nothing more profitable in their life.
8 If a man desire much experience, she knoweth things of old, and conjectureth aright what is to come: she knoweth the subtilties of speeches, and can expound dark sentences: she foreseeth signs and wonders, and the events of seasons and times.
9 Therefore I purposed to take her to me to live with me, knowing that she would be a counsellor of good things, and a comfort in cares and grief.
10 For her sake I shall have estimation among the multitude, and honour with the elders, though I be young.
11 I shall be found of a quick conceit in judgment, and shall be admired in the sight of great men.
12 When I hold my tongue, they shall bide my leisure, and when I speak, they shall give good ear unto me: if I talk much, they shall lay their hands upon their mouth.
13 Moreover by the means of her I shall obtain immortality, and leave behind me an everlasting memorial to them that come after me.
