The barbarian takeover of Afghanistan due to President Biden’s incompetence continues to unfold. Even our State Department is standing in the way of helping Americans and allies flee the country safely.
I thank God that other groups have helped with the airlift (Samaritan’s Purse, Kenneth Copeland Ministries and The Nazarene Fund–Glenn Beck) by transporting over 9,000 people to safety. But many remain stranded despite the denials by the Biden Administration.
Confusion and deception (caused by false information) can come from many sources.
Here’s how I was saved from deceptive news.
The May 24, 1982 entry on my “Life Calendar” records that I spent a day in Washington, D.C. with a spiritual leader who confirmed that I had a prophetic gift. No, not that kind of prophet (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Elijah etc.). Just an individual with a calling to speak for God and an ability to “see” things that others miss.
Part of being prophetic (not pathetic) includes a spiritual warfare perspective—the ability to glimpse realities in the unseen realm. I submit to you that today’s world and all that is happening around us make no sense without tri-focal vision.
Here is what I mean.
A well-known journalist with one of the fastest growing news podcasts in America was recently asked why left-leaning corporations like Comcast and Disney support socialism.
He admitted they knew that tearing down the capitalist system in America would hurt their profits. But they were still committed to doing so.
A viewer asked, “Why would they do that?”
He replied: “I don’t know.”
I think I do.
It’s the insidious fog of deception.
