We are fighting a real in this life. I think a lot of people do recognize this. What they don’t recognize is the real nature of the battle or who the real “enemy” is.
The battle is not between conservative and liberal, or between Democrat and Republican (or any other party), or between parents and their sons and daughters, or between parents and schools, or between rich and poor, or white collar and blue collar workers, or between people with different amounts of melanin in their skin, or between husbands and wives, or between men and women, or even between countries and different forms of government. While the conflict may appear to be between these people, groups or countries, those are only the battlefields. They are the skirmishes, the smaller battles within a much larger over-arching war. The real war is between good and evil.
Evil will use lies and any person or group to accomplish its goals. Good will use Truth and any person or group. We need to forget labels and learn to recognize Truth no matter what person it comes in. There are those who are labeled as “bad” or “deceived” or in the “wrong” group, yet who have some Truth. (To qualify here, I don’t believe any one person or group has ALL the Truth. We may know the One who does! But we do not have all Truth. We are ALL still learning, no matter how far along the path we have come.) There are also those who appear to be “good” or “in the know” or in the “right” group who harbor hidden evil.
Ask for eyes to see — for discernment. Evil can appear as light. Good can made to appear as darkness. This is especially true in a world where the definitions of good and evil have become blurred through deceptions and lies, typically through the lies of false labeling and the loud, repeated proclamation of those lies/labels.
I could give SO many examples of this from both history and from our modern day world. But you can see it for yourself, if you really look. Ask for real Truth to be revealed to you and then stay open for you just may be shocked at what you start realizing.
What triggered this post? An event and the push-back against that event. The following video is well worth the watching, no matter which side of the fence you are on. It is not only about this event, although it is certainly important, but think about how often this kind of scenario takes place in the world today. Truth is being spoken, but people are ready to shoot the messenger or deny the messenger access. Are you missing out on Truth because of your own prejudices and preconceived notions? Think about it.
Here is the event. I hope you will take the time to watch it.
