It's a trip how when you tell people the truth straight out, they don't want to receive it but would rather be manipulated by a lie instead. A lot of times folks don't want to let go of their vices even when those same vices are destroying their lives. If we don't receive the truth just the same as not telling the truth, both are equally wrong. So we can safely conclude that we can't escape dealing with TRUTH. You can be in denial or ignorant about it but Truth ain't going no where! It is what it is and it's not gonna change! We might not understand it all or not have the right perspective of it but as long as we keep a humble heart and allow God to renew our mind through our relationship with Christ Jesus, then we can continue to be molded into what God desires us to be. Yes it feels weird sometimes and it is mind boggling but we have to learn to just submit to His process and don't fight against the changes He's making in our life. In the bigger picture of things, you don't want to get stuck in your own way just because you didn't understand or want to do it God's way. His ways are not our ways, neither are His thoughts our thoughts. Isaiah 55:8
There are some realities that we just have to accept about the world that we live in. The powers that preside over us like the corporations that we heavily rely on and the government that constitutes the laws of the land, the priority for them is NOT truth, morals, and the best interest of the people. it's all about money, power, and controlling the masses by way of propaganda & manipulation.
Every human being desires food, sex, and material stuff! That's just psychology! Ok, now think about this, when you have a big machine of a company or industry that generates tons of money from manipulating people by their own desires, is that technically wrong? If that's what they want, they should just give the people what they want right?
Well, the thing is God created us for His good pleasure, not for corrupt men to have pleasure in controlling us! He didn't create us to be slaves to our own desires either. He created us to be free and use our God given desires to bring Him, the Creator glory. But from Eve getting deceived and Adam disobeying God, they forfeited their life and freedom in exchange for death and bondage to the lusts of the eyes, the lusts of the flesh, and the pride of life. Gen 3, 1 John 2:16
Instead of worshipping the True and Living God and serving Him. The Industry machines have engineered and conditioned societies of people who have made themselves gods who's desires are centered around serving themselves. In addition, people have made idols out of created things and don't even recognize the Creator Himself. The very thing God designed for creation and reproducing has been perverted and reduced to mere self serving pleasure. People don't even realize that they are being manipulated by their own psychological impulses to their own demise. Romans 1:21-32
Chemical releases that happen in our brain and throughout our body makes us feel a certain way that we want to experience again and again. People spend their whole life chasing after "feelings" and lose sight of what life is really about. They don't even have a clue what life is really about because all they've ever seen and known is superficial ideals.
Everybody is not falling for the deceit within the system of this world! There are some that have managed to break free from the bondage of Satan in areas of their lives.
That way to break free is found in The Word of God! Jesus Christ!
Jesus came to earth as a perfect man without sin who gave his life as a sacrifice in our place by being crucified on the cross taking upon himself all of the sins of the whole world! After 3 days he rose from the dead defeating death having all power in his hands. He later ascended into Heaven where he is seated at the right hand of the Father. But we have access to Jesus Christ and His Spirit which is the Holy Spirit if we simply call on him and ask he into our hearts and confess him as Lord in our lives. Romans 10:9 - 11
Because God created us in His own image and likeness, when we speak there is power that goes forth, especially when our heart and confession lines up with the Word of God. Of course we live in a corrupt world and we aren't going to understand everything but the MOST important thing to know and understand is that Jesus Christ is the answer and solution for resolving your issues and the key to freedom from bondage that you may be struggling with no matter what it is.
So let go of your pride! Nobody can function properly without Him!
May the Lord be with you,
