There is Insanity In Falling in Holes

I wrote a mostly humorous book a few years ago about my adventures as an innkeeper over several years. In that book, I borrowed a piece of work about seeing a hole and falling into it…over and over, until one day perhaps, maybe we might escape the insanity and choose another street to walk down. Will you?

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in. It’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault. I get out immediately.

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

I walk down another street.”

Unfortunately, this describes many folks today. They are incapable of the rational thought needed to first recognize the dangerous hole but more importantly to walk a different path to avoid and not be a part of the collective insanity that has swept across a once great nation. One of the problems of becoming separate from the insane masses is that you will be hated, persecuted, ridiculed, and left alone. Without the Spirit of Truth abiding in you, this life becomes difficult if not impossible.

Just today I read a man’s comments stating that all bureaucrats were liars. His words were “if they are moving their lips, they are lying.” If this person actually believed this, isn’t it insanity to seek help and solutions from those who, when their lips move, they are lying? For those wanting to “come out of her” the task can take a while and you can’t do it alone. It takes more power and strength than you alone are capable.

I once operated from the false and strong delusion that man-god’s government in this country was “of and by the people” thinking people meant me. Not so. People, in the context of the Constitution, is referring to the drafters of that paper and their posterity…not mine and ours. I am but their citizen slave – a nobody.

Like so many, I thought that if I played the political game, got involved, went through the right channels, connected with those with power, I could make a difference. I fell in that hole in the street for many years before one day I finally realized man’s world is full of corruption and is a rigged system in which only the powerful and well-connected criminals control. The insanity comes when we repeatedly think we can change the system by employing the rigged and corrupted system to do that.

A great contributor to this website, over the past few days, has shared with readers Scripture verses that help explain why a person who has the Spirit of Truth living within them, cannot be a part of Satan’s world which includes man’s corrupt and insane government.

Buckskinrider pointed out last evening that a house divided against itself cannot stand. This is wrongfully attributed to Abraham Lincoln as an original quote but in actuality, it comes from the Scriptures – Matthew 12:25: 25But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them, Every kingdom divided against itself, is brought to naught, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand.”

If you examine the footnote that accompanies this Scripture, it clearly states: “The kingdom of Christ and the kingdom of the devil cannot consist together.”

The Kingdom of the devil has been at work since the creation of this earth. In Psalm 83, the Israelites are calling out to Yahweh asking him to pour out his wrath against those seeking to destroy them (the kingdom of Christ). In verse 5 it describes what those of the kingdom of the devil have done: “For they have consulted together in heart, and have made a league against thee.” It is what the kingdom of Satan does 24/7.

Because the kingdom of Yeshua and the kingdom of Satan cannot exist together, we are told in the Scriptures to not be a part of this world. False teachings over the centuries have brainwashed us to believe that God wants us to get involved in politics and work with and participate in the rigged and corrupt system (kingdom of the devil), that somehow we can transform the kingdom of the devil into the Kingdom of Christ by working within the kingdom of the devil.

In John’s visions of Revelation, in Chapter 17 we read about the Whore of Babylon that “sits upon many waters.” and has “…committed fornication with the kings of the earth.” Verse 13 tells us that the Whore and the kings and powers are conspiring together to ensure that the kingdom of the devil continues its rule over the earth as our Creator is allowing for a time – “These have one mind, and shall give their power and authority unto the beast.” There is but one way to accomplish what one may have in their mind to accomplish in this, man’s corrupt government, and that is to be a part of it. The Spirit of Truth within me is constantly telling me to “come out of Her,” to render unto Ceasar that which is Ceasar’s and unto Yahweh, that which is His. We can’t have it both ways. The house of Satan and the Kingdom of Christ cannot exist together. It will fall. His Words have told us so.

2 Corinthians 6:14 says, “Be not unequally yoked with the infidels: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” (Note: In today’s life as an American citizen, the term “infidel” carries an extremely negative connotation as a term used by radical terrorists in describing anyone who doesn’t believe and practice their form of Islam and must be killed. In the context of this particular translation of the 1599 Geneva Bible, the term infidel is intending to describe those who are not followers of Christ and/or who are doing the work of “the kingdom of the devil” in the attempted destruction of the Kingdom of Christ, i.e. the Whore of Babylon, the great beast that sits on many waters. You can’t play both sides.

Romans 12:2 instructs us to: “And fashion not yourselves like unto this world, but be ye changed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God is.”

I was a part of that world in my ignorance. Through the renewing of my mind, I find that in Ephesians 5:14: “Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and stand up from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” I am thankful and blessed for the “light.”

Buckskinrider explains this transformation this way: “When you become filled with the spirit of Yeshua who removes the delusion and blindness from your eyes and ears, who turns you right side up and he shows you this world you then become unlike them of this world thus becoming their enemy. The enemy of those still of this world.. They hate you, they abandon you..They reject you..They reject the evidence of the irrefutable truths against this world of which they worship through various false paradigms, politics, philosophies, sciences, questionable knowledge, questionable scriptural interpretations.. Rejecting the evidence of their own delusion…

“Questionable associations with thieves and liars, scientists, evolutionists, fools, drinkers of fermented beverages who boast, for any cause is a misrepresentation of our duty here to our King Yeshua..”

When I decided my job here would be one of exposing the ignorance, blindness, corruption and the work of those attempting to sustain a “house divided,” some who used to be friends became my enemies. But that does not matter. I am no longer a part of the kingdom of the devil. My work is toward the Kingdom of Christ that I might, “..prove what that good, and acceptable and perfect will of God is.”

Simply put, you cannot change a corrupt system of Satan by working inside of and employing the rigged system thinking you can fix it. That is insanity. That hole in the street is very large and all-consuming. Some recognize it but yet still think they can get over it to the other side.

Try that other street. It’s pretty good over there.

Please read 2 Thessalonians 2:
