False Prophets

Watch me paint this wolf in 1 minute (time lapse)

Beware of false prophets. Or should we say, “Beware of false profits“? Fake prophets, teachers and experts lie and cover up the truth because they profit from:

 

  • false information
  • misleading forecasts of future outcomes
  • manufactured data trends
  • biased news

 

Follow the money. Are the people who profit from a coordinated agenda involved in a public perception, fact checking, or spokesperson role, such as a “journalist” (oftentimes an agent of the State)? Are any “experts” profiting from the very events that they are supposedly the arbitrator of truth for? Are any of the persons who decide which opinions, claims and counter-expert professionals must be banned, silenced, or even declared “dangerous” to society- are any of the mouthpieces, censors, or experts profiting from the agenda?

We can say that these are unprecedented times of deceit, but that would be untrue. There is nothing new under the sun. In ancient days, we were warned of the same thing.

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
- Matthew 7:15 KJV

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, “ravening” has two meanings. The first is literal, referring to wild animals violently hunting for food. The second is “a ravening group of people try to get what they want in a forceful way”. The example used was “ravening journalists”, but we can apply the word “ravening” to any person or group who pressures, harasses, shames, threatens, coerces, or leverages compliance to get what they want.

A wolf in sheep’s clothing might be:

  • A pastor, priest, or any spiritual leader who aligns with government agendas, commercial interests, social agendas, and faux-religion ideology over the needs of the congregation; misleading people from a powerful pulpit
  • A teacher who preaches instead of teaches; pushing students to think the way they want, rather than to learn how to think critically and self-advocate
  • A doctor who knowingly withholds some information, while promoting propaganda that aligns with an agenda borne of ideology, profit, and job security for towing the line
  • A “journalist” who may not meet the definition of a journalist at all, as they may be working directly or indirectly for government entities and are merely posing as an unbiased journalist. In this way, they may meet two definitions of “actor”: an actor of the State (for their country of origin or on behest of foreign interests), while also performing as actors.
  • An “expert” who has been declared as such by the same wolves in sheep’s clothing as listed above
  • Any person affiliated with any form of government who says that they are here to help us, while their actions hurt us

Of course not everyone in a position of leadership or power is a wolf, but it is wise to always be aware of this possibility. Never give anyone full authority over your life.

You have only one mind, body, and spirit. You must protect yourself from those who wish to lead you astray for their own gain, whether they do so knowingly with full intention, or whether they do so because they are themselves deceived, or whether they do so because they believe in their cause with the fervor and blindness of a member of a cult religion… whatever the reason that others tell you how to think or what to do, what is good, and what is bad… always honor your own ability to make decisions for yourself.

“When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is... You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky. How is it that you don’t know how to interpret this present time? Why don’t you judge for yourselves what is right?"
- Luke 12: 54-57 NIV

How is it that so many people simply follow orders? Fear is a powerful weapon. New situations are frightening. But is anything really “new”? When we analyze any given set of people, situations, or events we can find common elements with people, situations, or events from the recent and distant past. Throughout all of history there exists a dynamic of shrewd powerful people enslaving innocent persons or an entire populace. This is nothing new.

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us."
- Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 KJV

The technology for enslaving others is much more advanced than in days of old, but progress doesn’t change what’s at the core. Enslavement is enslavement. Lies are lies. Greed is greed. Death is death. I’ve been at the bedside of people who are dying, and none of them cared in the end about their manner of death. They cared only for the people they were leaving behind.

Fear is a distraction, meant to render us powerless. “This is new, you cannot fight it (us)” is an effective psychological warfare strategy to force a populace to comply. It is helpful to see the reality that there is nothing new under the sun, merely different attempts to accomplish the same goals as in ancient days. Progress and methods may invoke great fear, but ultimately we still have free will. Don’t let anyone deceive you into believing that you are powerless.

When we know that we are powerful, we attract spiritual strength. The spiritually strong are happier. Happier people are healthier. Healthier people have greater mental acuity. Mind, body, spirit – all of it works together to keep us safe. May God bless and keep you, may His face shine upon you and give you peace.

Are YOU in season?

Watch me paint this tree frog in about a minute (time lapse)

More about the tree frog in a few minutes…

As spring approached, I blogged that it was the season for seeing an elusive migratory bird called a painted bunting. That was just over a month ago. The bunting has since moved on and we aren’t likely to see him again until next year.

But the lizards are here to stay until it gets chilly again in the fall. I took a short video of this little guy, who looks a lot like the one I painted (see next video). Sorry he’s a bit out of focus. My camera apparently thought I wanted to film the grass. 😒 Watch his neck. He has a few cool dance moves.

About the tree frog…

 

We haven’t seen any yet. They should appear on a sultry evening, stuck fast to our patio glass. Only one at a time, just hanging out as if listening to our conversations. The season of frogs is coming soon.

This blog posts poses the question, “Are YOU in season?

Do you feel as if you’re “back” from spiritual hibernation, or not quite yet? Have you already moved on to the next phase of your journey like the painted bunting, or staying a while where you are like the lizard, or have you not yet emerged, like the tree frog? At some point after a long winter, it is safe to come out. For every thing there is a season.

There’s no doubt that the world has experienced a “long winter” even if your winters and summers are different from mine here in the United States. Are we ready for a new season? How you define your winter is personal to you, but all of us have been affected by the long spiritual hibernation and harsh conditions we’ve endured. 

We are divided about what those harsh conditions are, and who brought them about. Even the heavily marketed phrase “in it together” is divisive. Some see it for what it is: propaganda. When government/media messaging is coordinated and pushed with an agenda, without unbiased concrete proof that the claims are real, and is designed to steer thinking, responses, and/or action, it is indeed propaganda. 

We can debate whether or not propaganda is right or wrong, but the fact that there is an organized campaign to push an agenda is undeniable. We can also debate the agenda. However, denying that there IS an agenda is not a healthy conversation at this point, as it seems destined for a poor outcome. If we want this to be a season of healing, we must let go of old unproductive patterns. We must see what “is”, and understand that our interpretation of it may never align, but we must insist that the parts of our experience that are as factually apparent as clearly as an Emperor who has no clothes on, be agreed upon by all but the biggest fools.

Beyond the obvious events we can plainly see, we may never agree about why things happened, or how they should have happened, or even how things should happen now. We can focus on what divides us, or on what unites us. We can also choose to remain rather neutral by not focusing on either end of the spectrum. We can choose to avoid any mindful analysis of the situation either way. But what we can’t do is opt out of the timeline in which we live.

However we see this oppressive and hostile timeline, no matter who we think is responsible for it, and no matter how we understand microbiology, technocracy, GMHs/hybrids/infusion/etc., reset/transition/build-back-better/globalism, or any of the other complex issues involving immune systems and manipulation thereof, regardless if occurring organically, steered, psychological-warfare-driven, or weaponized… the reality for us all is that we are impacted by it. We were forced into a spiritual season that we did not choose.

Have we yet emerged from that dark brutal winter? Are YOU in season, or still in spiritual hibernation? Is it time yet for you to feel the air under your wings like the beautiful bunting? Do you want to dance to life’s music like the lizard? Or are you like the tree frog… lying low somewhere, hidden, not ready yet?

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace."
- Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 KJV

Take your time, but don’t miss your season. Every life makes a difference. There is something missing when YOU are missing.
