Smoke and Mirrors 2024
This morning as I was reading the word and writing in my journal, I couldn’t help but think of the upcoming months here in America. As we get ready to vote once again for candidates that will help govern our nation. Instead of being excited I immediately thought to myself, in the next 10 months we are going to see the ugly side of humankind. We are going to be bombarded through the News, Newspapers, Radio, TV, and sadly even in our mailboxes the worst side of humanity.
These next months will be filled with manipulation, hatred, persuasive tactics, bribery, finger-pointing, shaming of certain individuals, and much more. The whole smoke and mirrors tactic where you have to make others look bad so you will win a vote is pretty sad. But we are living in the end times whether Jesus returns today or 50 years from now, we are closer today than we were yesterday.
The enemy has an agenda, and it does not include the Bible and Christlike Living, so don’t be surprised about what you see in this world today. It’s just crazy how people can be manipulated so easily due to hatred. The media’s goal will be to make you believe someone is bad and cause you to hate a person or nation so much that you automatically do your best to destroy that individual.
They will make you believe that a Human child in a Woman’s womb also known as a Baby does not have the rights that the rest of us do. I suppose the “R” word will be back in the headlines soon and they will try to divide us once again based on the color of our skin…… can you imagine something God created to protect our bodies being used against us to cause mass hatred around the world?
There’s a saying, “The greatest trick the devil ever played was convincing the world that he did not exist.” Don’t believe he exists? Look around, watch the real news for a day and you will see the worst side of humanity stealing, killing, and destroying each other.
Sadly, to believe that the devil exists you have to admit that God exists, so many won’t and will continue to spiral downward. But for those who wake up and realize the truth, there is hope through Jesus Christ.
Lastly, I want to say this…. Pay attention, and stay focused. If you are a follower of Jesus Christ and live by the Bible, then pray and stand on the Word of God, not Man. Don’t get caught up in useless arguments, stay focused. Remember the Enemy is not after you he is after the Word of God. Blessings and Love To You ALL!
New American Standard Bible
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and pleading with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
