from Outside the Camp

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” 1 Thes 5: 16-22

Welcome to the Twilight Zone of the 21st century. These days it’s hard to figure out what’s real and what’s manufactured for nefarious purposes by the prince of the power of the air that controls the sons of disobedience.

So, to say ‘question everything’ takes on a whole new perspective in these days of AI and deep state deception. We can’t trust the journalists to tell it straight since they’re under the control of their boss’s agenda. We can’t put our trust in political campaign promises since we know from experience that their words are devised to get votes and never pan out. We can’t trust judges and juries as they are all guided by biases and social group-think. We can’t trust leaders in the church while we watch them fall one-by-one into sexual scandals and money-grubbing prosperity gospel-driven avarice.

We’re left with only one choice: Put our trust in Jesus even as we see the world system fall apart around us.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,

oh, may I then in Him be found,

Dressed in His righteousness alone,

faultless to stand before the throne.

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand;

all other ground is sinking sand.

Both secular and religious authorities want unthinking followers marching in line and in conformity to the program.

In the world the orders are:

· Use the approved pronouns

· Accept all lifestyles, regardless of how perverse

· Believe the official stories

· Do not question authority

· No tolerance for the intolerant

· Criticism is hate speech & punishable by law

In the collective church the orders include:

· Touch not God’s anointed

· Do not listen to heresy hunters

· Unite with all those that claim Christ as their head

· Marginalize those who divide truth from error

· Embrace diversity — all are welcome

· Judge not!

Terms like ‘alt-right’ or ‘far-left’ are labels for those who are seen as extreme. Lukewarm is the preferred position — all others are potential terrorists and may end up in reprograming camps in the near future.

Truth is no longer tolerated as we saw recently in the ouster of Tucker Carlson on one side and Don Lemon on the other.

The puppet master has tightened his grip.

I think of the Lord’s rebuke of the Church of Laodicea, the final personification of the professing church in the world.

“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth.” 
Rev 3:15-16

We must always keep in mind that those who have not a love for the truth will be given over to believe the lie. And the lies for the moment are in full control. One look at the past month’s links reveals the big picture.

His coming is at the Door!
