“In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire. And the tongue is a flame of fire.” (James 3: 5-6a)
I sat up late last night because of a speaker who caught my ear. This man was a University Professor, and an expert on Russia. He had lived there for a time, studied them, and was now considered an expert. Politically, he would have fallen on the Liberal side, and had many Liberal friends. He was very well spoken, and what he had to say was so important I wish everyone could have heard.
I believe God “leads” me to things. He leads me to things he wants spoken, taught, written; from this platform and whatever other door he may open. I woke up this morning knowing where God wanted to go today, on this site.
Jerusalem lives in much danger, and they are willing to die for what they believe in, and we’ve just spent some time considering the spiritual plight of Israel, but what of our own very real and present danger? There are many to be sure. My mission from God at Tumble Pigeon Farm is all about the spiritual dangers we face in the church itself, but this particular threat crosses all borders, knows no bounds, and like a fire consuming a forest, will bring devastation to all!
I should have written down the man’s name, but when you hear what he had to say, you will recognize it as the “TRUTH”, so it really doesn’t matter who said it. Among other things, he explained this: (I will relate this point as best I can remember.) > If you were around during the “Cuban Missle Crises” you are aware of how very close we came to major devastation on a grand scale. Fortunately, J.F. Kennedy, and whoever else involved, barely managed to avert the situation. During the crises there was much communication going on between all powers involved, including Russia. (Especially Russia!)
One of his main points was ever since that day, all Presidents have maintained communications with Russia, in an effort to prevent things from ever reaching such a point of crises again! (That makes very good sense.) What this man was seriously worried about and strongly pointing out, our media is on such a Vengeance Trail to get Donald Trump, that they are preventing him from being able to have those same communications every President has had before him! They are completely tieing his hands! And we are the ones being put in harms way, while they conduct their personal vendetta!
He explained every time President Trump tries to speak with Russia, the media begins crying from the rooftops accusing him of collusion and being a traitor! Their goal is to make it impossible for him to do anything! Including maintaining those very important communications which are in the best interest of all of us! And who is doing this? As I have said, but let me get a little more detailed…our very own…innocent…and very trust worthy…having no bias…but only interested in truth…highly honorable…very trustworthy… super intelligent…media! (I’m sorry if I caused you to vomit while reading that.) This is not only a very sad state of affairs, but a very real and present danger for all of us! No matter whose side you’re on! Fire is an equal opportunity destroyer!
I’m sorry, but our media is out of control and gone way to far into the land of insanity, frothing at the mouth and no longer concerned about the actual welfare of one and all. They profess themselves to be so wise in their high and mighty seats, but are revealing themselves to be court jesters having no sense of integrity, and no concern of where their actions are leading!
God’s word not only points out the extreme danger of unbridled tongues, but it also still says Thou shalt not bear false witness! Thou shalt not lie! These people reveal on a daily basis they have no regard at all for something called God’s Word, and I understand that, but knowing this, we need to be aware of how much danger they are putting us all in! If they did have regard for God’s word, they might at least have a little true wisdom.
The Indians are famous for saying: White man speak with forked tongue! (I, as Grandpa White Feather, was looking forward to quoting that.)
Look what trusting a bunch of greedy liars did to the Indians. We have such dark things in our past. Are we any better at spotting when these things are happening again? Only this time, to us?
What is “Fake News”? In most cases it is pure “Propaganda”! Definition of propaganda is: Information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political agenda or point of view.
Of a biased or misleading nature. Hhmmm, sounds like a certain snake I’ve read about in a book our media ignores. “Misleading?” Where do they want us to go? We are the herd they want to manipulate. Where are they tring to lead us to? Some utopia of their own design and imagination, based on lies that will never work in the kingdom of human nature? Do we still have the ability of critical thinking? Or have we become the herd of cows they think we are, simply going where they prod us to go?
Our media have become nothing but professional propagandist claiming to be journalist in order to get into our homes, heads, and hearts; even into our very souls!!! They know every lie told can never be completely undone! They also know they are not being held accountable, so why not? What have they got to lose? Evidently they’re not concerned about their reputation.
These people are not elected, and yet they seek to run our country and cannot be voted out! If I decide to tune into a Rush Limbuagh, (spelled wrong?), I at least know what I’m turning on. He’s very up front about it, and I have to intentionaly choose him! How did CNN get into all our airports? I work in an airport and all day long I’m forced to see these “Journalist?” spouting their propaganda! The only thing saving us occasionally is sports! Why do they have this power? How did they get to be the chosen ones? How do we vote them out?
The Bible says the tongue will set on fire the course of nature. Is that what we want? Ask people in California what it’s like having fire constantly threatening your very life and everything you own! Consider the financial cost of repairing fire damage! Is this what any sane person would not try to prevent? So how do they constantly get away with such obvious propaganda?
No lie, broadcasted from such a large platform, can ever be completely undone. Especially when they broadcast the lie in a shout, and then give the correction with a whisper! They surely know this and it seems to be intentional! The correction should have to be shouted at least double the original lie! Maybe that would give them pause, and cause them to be a bit more cautious in the fires they are starting!
They are playing, without regard, with yours and my future, folks. The future safety of our children and all concerned. They are playing with fire, and they don’t have enough sense to even realize the danger! How did such irresponsible people manage to crawl their way into such positions? I’m asking these questions while we still have the freedom to ask such things.
So what of those who never check what they are being told? I’ve always had an interest in hearing both sides. If CNN were not on at the airport, I would still tune it in, at my own descretion, to hear the other side. But most people I converse with can’t stand a Rush Limbaugh type, and do not even open their mind to other possibilities. It’s become their religion! All they spout is propaganda and show no ability to think for themselves! It’s called critical thinking. Politics is not meant to be a religion! (Although, a true religion will shine some light on all our politics.)
I’ll share one more story and then I think were done opening this can of worms for now. I had another college professor in my wheelchair one day. (I push wheelchairs at the airport.) He told me this generation has no ability for critcal thinking. (Now I know that explains a lot!)
He said he could give them a statement, like: Nine out of ten dentist recommend this toothpaste. Then he challenges the class to critcally examine that statement. He could take a lunch break, come back an hour later, and they still would have no other thoughts about the statement! No such thoughts as, why did 1 out of 10 disagree? What did they have to say? Who was this statement promoted by? Are the dentist getting any financial kickback when they promote this toothpaste? And so forth. He said it is as if they have completely lost this ability, and into this slithers the university professors, and fake news. (Propaganda) This is a very real and present danger. Children are playing with matches! Obviously they are not mature enough to know the dangers, (for they are many!), of false witnessing!
We need to be awake, we need to be aware, and we need to be active. If our President is being thwarted by a bunch of sore losers keeping him from doing the very basic things every President needs to be able to do for our own safety and welfare, then we are all going to pay a horrible price when the fire reaches our own back yard. Who will the media blame then? Anyone but themselves and whoever their “person” is, of course. And since they can shout it louder than anyone else from their big platform, most the world will believe. And we will be on fire. A fire birthed from the pits of hell by those who claim to be honest, true, and wise. Media speak with forked tongue!
Can we ever get media back to just giving us the facts, and let us figure it out from there, without their own twist and slant put to it? Who can even find the facts anymore? The facts are lost in a cloud of rumors and shadowy unrevealed and unconfirmed sources! What kind of journalism is this? No kind at all! Not by the definition of journalism, and yet these people still claim such title. (I feel like I’m on a rant, but the danger is real, and is the reason for my passion.)
Anyone who still has the ability to critically think, whether they are religious or not, should be able to see I am not just another Chicken Little yelling the sky is falling. This is a very real and present danger. This expert on Russia saw it as such, and God’s word spells it out very plainly. The tongue can be full of deadly poison; and poison kills! Propagandist are poison dealers. That’s all propaganda is. And snakes with forked tongues, if given the chance, inject their victims with deadly venom.
We need to learn to recognize a “snake pit” when we see one. In the movie: “True Grit”, a young woman, Mattie, falls into a pit in which things start moving! Things that should not be moving! It soon becomes apparent she has fallen into a pit crawling with viperous snakes! What a horrifying experience! An experience she barely survives, but loses an arm in the process. Things are moving, folks. Things that should not be moving! We are in a snake pit! A lot of venom has already gone forth, and many are infected. Keep God’s word close. You’re going to need it. Those of us who are children of Abraham, let us lean together in our common point of Christ, and encourage one another. Pray without ceasing, and speak truth to darkness!
