Right Thinking in Days of Madness
We live in a time when right thinking is very rare. Logic seems to have been forgotten like a lost art, fairy tales are called “science” and many believe what they want to believe simply because they want to believe it. Most people won't put forth the effort to search out a matter, but rather continue on for decades in an erroneous untested religious or philosophical view point. Anyone who has been paying attention will testify to the fact that dumbing down has been a long purposeful process by the powers that be. Clearly, there have been forces at work for a very long time that do not want the masses to think and they have obviously done a very good job!
Take for example the popular and widely accepted idea perpetuated as “science” for approximately the past 150 years that the universe occurred by random chance. The fact that the universe displays incredible design, synergy and order is of no consequence to those who hold to this theory. With elaborate arguments that lead us down rabbit holes, they will deny the obvious that intelligent design requires an intelligent designer. And today, those scientists who interpret the same observable data as evidence of such an intelligent designer are discredited, silenced and shunned by the lobby of evolutionists.
Truth is self evident and determined by an objective view point; one that considers the fuller picture apart from personal feelings. Unfortunately, it is a subjective view that most employ when choosing a particular religious or philosophical stance; one that is based upon their own thoughts and feelings. It is impossible to escape a personal bias. Everyone is biased in one direction or another, but the question to ask is whether or not your bias is a reasonable one. This requires humility far more than intelligence; a willingness to know the truth greater than the desire for empowerment or pseudo-peace that might be obtained from a particular creed.
Since it is not reasonable to assume that intelligent design can come without an intelligent designer, consider the following: In the mid-90's professors of mathematical scholarship at Yale, Harvard and the Hebrew University discovered a phenomenon, as they called it, of “equidistant letter sequences” in the Bible, so named because at equal skip distances, in the Hebrew Scriptures, letters spell out related meanings to the coherent text they are embedded in. This they said was against incredible odds – according to Jeffrey Satinover “... The odds of its occurring merely by chance are less than 1 in 50 quadrillion.” I have personally researched this phenomenon and compiled a chronological order of many of these occurrences which contain the Savior's name in the sequences throughout the entire TaNaK/Old Testament. To view this listing, go to the article entitled “ELS -Sequential Listing.” 1 in 50 quadrillion are pretty big odds, to say the least. And contrary to the skeptics report that this kind of thing occurs in many other secular writings from Moby Dick to Winnie the Pooh, the truth of the matter is that it does not! This is a phenomenon far outside the realm of human capability....a phenomenon of astronomical proportions which brings us all to only one reasonable conclusion: An intelligent designer orchestrated the embedding of these numerous messages that are highly relevant to the coherent text in which they are embedded. This is the very fingerprints of Elohim on the pages of His Word. Any other explanation is a ludicrous stretch of foolish men who refuse to believe in a Sovereign Creator to whom they must one day give an account.
Up until about the mid-1800's in this country, education included a working knowledge of the Bible, and in fact, anyone who did not read and know scriptures was considered illiterate. How far we have fallen when today you can be fired from a work place for quoting a scripture to someone, or arrested for holding a Bible study in your home. The godless socialistic society so feared and fought against by this country in the last century has now become the status quo and normative atmosphere of the present day. Slowly and methodically, the Illuminati gained control of our universities and grade schools, our churches and synagogues, our congress and courts.
And who dares to speak against what has been sanitized as “an alternate life style”? In these days, those who take an unpopular stance against homosexuality are coined “the haters” and “bigots.” Now, everything is relative...truth.....life...murder.....sex.....right ...wrong.......sanity......madness!!! Through the power of the media, and because of a lust for entertainment and pleasure far greater than a love of the truth, this country has fallen like ancient Israel, and is on the verge of captivity and sorrow such as she never thought possible, or could ever imagine. The warning signs are all around, but who is paying attention? The only outcome for those who have hardened themselves against the obvious is a well deserved and rude awakening which, as history has proven, is just on the horizon.
As King Solomon wrote, “There is nothing new under the sun.” [Ecc.1:9]The words in the epistle of Paul to the Romans is no less true today of this generation than they were of any other, and neither are the consequences;
For the wrath of Elohim from heaven is revealed against all the iniquity and wickedness of men who hold the truth in iniquity. Because a knowledge of Elohim is manifest in them; for Elohim has manifested it in them. For, from the foundation of the world, the hidden things of Elohim are seen by the mind in the things He created even His eternal power and divinity, so that they might be without excuse. Because they knew Elohim and did not glorify Him and give thanks to Him as Elohim, but became vain in their imaginings and their unwise heart was darkened. And, while they thought within themselves that they were wise, they became fools. And they changed the glory of the incorruptible Elohim into a likeness to the image of a corruptible man, and into the likeness of birds and four-legged animals and reptiles on the earth. For this cause, Elohim gave them up to the fill of the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies with them. And they changed the truth of Elohim into a lie; and worshipped and served the created things, much more than the Creator of them, to whom belong glory and blessing forever and ever: Amein. For this cause, Elohim gave them up to vile passions; for their females changed the use of their natures and employed that which was unnatural. And so also their males set aside the use of females, which is natural, and received in their core substance the just recompense of their error. And as they did not determine within themselves to know Elohim, Elohim gave them over to a vain mind; that they might do what they should not. Being full of all iniquity and lewdness, and bitterness and malice, and covetousness and envy, and slaughter and strife, and deceit and evil machinations and backbiting and slander, and being haters of Elohim, scoffers, proud, vain-glorious, devisers of evil things, destitute of reason, disregardful of parents. And to whom a covenant is nothing, neither affection, nor peace, and in whom is no compassion. These while they know the judgment of Elohim, that He condemns those to death who perpetrate such things, are not only doers of them, but the companions of such as do them. [Romans 1:18-32]
And concerning the latter days, we read; But know this: That in the latter days hard times will come: and men will be lovers of themselves and lovers of money, boasters, proud, revilers, unyielding towards their own people, deniers of grace, wicked, unloving , addicted to irreconcilable malicious gossips, ferocious, haters of the good, treacherous,rash, inflated, attached to pleasure more than to the love of Elohim, having a form of respect for Elohim but wide from the power of Elohim. [2 Tim. 3:1-5a]
...there will come in the last days scoffers who will scoff, walking according to their own lusts and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?” [2 Peter 3:3b-4a]
...because they told you that in the end of times there would be scoffers going after wickedness according to their lusts. [Jude v.18]
...because they did not receive the love of the truth by which they might have life. Therefore Elohim will send upon them the strength of a deception that they may believe a lie. [2Thess. 2:10b-11]
Love of the truth is love of Elohim's Word [John17:17] and His Word became flesh [John 1:14]. Y'shua is the Way, the Truth and the Life [John 14:6]. According to the above passage, to reject Him and the message of the Bible will cause Elohim Himself to send a strong deception. This is the condition of those today who have rejected Him in place of vain imaginings, religions of the mind, Witchcraft and every other lie that sets itself up against Him.
The current conditions of our planet are proof enough to those paying attention that we are in fact in the end of days.
And as in the days of Nukh, thus will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as they were before the deluge, eating and drinking and taking women and giving them in marriage to men up to the day that Nukh entered into the ark, and they did not know until the deluge came and took them all, thus will be the coming of the Son of Man. [Matt.24:37-39]
May this short note bring clarity to someone and encourage that step towards the Holy One. He promises to lead you into all truth by His Spirit if you submit to Him[John 16:13]. Right thinking, even in days of madness is promised to everyone who chooses to humble themselves and come to the Light.
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness but he will find the Light of Life for himself. [John 8:12]
Shalom uv'rachah b'shem Y'shua (Peace and blessing in the Name of Y'shua)
