If you read these quotes from this array of accredited Arab leaders; then unless you are blinded by hatred for the Jewish state of Israel you must admit that there is no contest when deciding — who is right in the question of land ownership in Modern Israel. The Arab hatred of the Jews is behind all of the turmoil seen in that region since 1948.
So why then are our Media, and our government so deceived concerning this question? We have been Israel’s ally.
In fact, it just so happens that the same thing is true of CoVid vaccines; of Election Fraud, of global warming and other scientific evidence where truth is not made the primary focus of educating the public. This can result from hatred or any other sin being involved which infects the ability of humans to reason. This is why Jesus warning to us — not to be deceived has always been so relevant. And it is why Paul’s admonition to walk not in the flesh but in the Spirit has as well. The Spirit is always by definition our teacher. If one is possessed by God’s teacher, who has as one of His purposes to lead that one into truth; then to continue to walk in deception is only possible when we ignore Him.
So then why do we see the flesh winning even within the church? We are told: Hebrews 3:13 But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is [still] called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. (NASB)
Sin is the sole means of ones being deceived. To walk in untruth concerning anything in life will always lead one astray. Therefore we are not to prejudge, but to study under the Holy Spirits leading in order to show ourselves approved.
The truth is always opposed and is often hidden in this world. To find it requires much prayer, trust and (study or the willingness to seek, which requires effort). Eyes and ears open to learn from the Holy Spirit will not be deceived.
So why then do lies become truth in the world surrounding us? The answer is obvious. Satan is the god of this world. He is the deceiver. The world will always exploit lies over the truth. False prophets will always prophecy falsely. Men who promote lies and deception will always be with us, just as the poor will always be with us. Our job as believers is to walk in Truth; to speak the truth in love.
1 Corinthians 13:2 If I have [the gift of] prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. (NASB1995)
If I love you, I will always speak the truth to you in love. God loves the world, and He has spoken His truth to the world through Jesus, and through His Spirit, who testifies of Jesus who is truth. God offers righteousness to a world now filled with sin and unrighteousness. He has us here as His ambassadors of truth.
And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.
Luke 21:16-17 KJV
We are loved by the brothers and sisters in Christ, we are ignored and often hated by the world under Satan’s control, yet we are to love even our enemies so as to, if possible, win some, even as we ourselves have been won.
