A 3-Fingered Judgment-Day, Part 4: “Every Man A Liar”

“LET GOD BE TRUE,

BUT EVERY MAN A LIAR”

Romans 3:4

THREE FINGERS POINTING BACK

.

God has designed nature to be functional.

.

But in His infinite wisdom, He has also designed nature to teach spiritual lessons. And the human hand is no exception! Beside being a marvel of functionality, the human hand teaches us lessons.

.

And even this unbelieving world sees the truth about finger-pointing.

.

And that lesson is, that when a person points the accusing finger at another, then there are three other fingers on his own hand, which point right back!

.

This is a common saying in the world…“When you point your finger at another, there are three fingers pointing back at you!”

.

Haven’t you heard this saying before?

GOD THREATENS US ABOUT JUDGING!

.

God tells us plainly… “Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.” Romans 2:1

.

With such an indictment as this above verse points out, how can we still point the accusing finger at others? Yes, whenever we point the accusing finger at somebody else, there are indeed, three fingers pointing right back at us!

.

And of course, the number “three” is the very number of the Godhead, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

TODAY’S POLITICAL WAR

.

In the midst of today’s current red-hot political war between the two opposing factions, there is a huge amount of finger-pointing, coming from each side!

.

One side accuses the other side of some wrong-doing, quite often in the area of misconduct.  And then, in this on-going political soap-opera, it won’t be long until the other side points its accusing finger over some issue, usually over some supposed misconduct or wrong-doing.

.

And on and on and on it goes!

.

The Left gives the Right a verbal black eye. And before long, the Right gives back to the Left, its own black eye!

.

And it never seems to stop, does it?

“EVERY MAN A LIAR”

Romans 3:4

.

And now, in this day of 24/7/365 news, the public gets to witness all this political wrangling on a daily, yea even an hourly basis!

.

And one very sad phenomenon in all this is, that quite often, the accusers must exaggerate the facts, so that the supposed accusation carries with it the maximum impact. Either by adding some little lie, or twisting or omitting some facts, or sometimes even totally fabricating the entire story, these finger-pointing accusers attempt to destroy their political enemies in this never-ending chess game, called politics!

YELLOW JOURNALISM: THE NEW NORM!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hearst_1906_Wizard_of_Ooze.jpgAnd of course, it would be remiss to ignore the role of the various major news organizations today, most of which have all taken sides in this insane political football game of the two major opposing ideologies. And as a result of their zealous jealousy for their own politcal faction, the dominant major press has all but destroyed their own reputation for any degree of credibility.

.

Nevertheless, as willing accomplices, they continue to go relentlessly forward in their death-spiral, knowing that their mis-reporting and out-and-out lies and deceptions will be enthusiastically accepted and repeated abroad by their own constituants in the general public, who “cheer for their own team”, even though these ardent supporters know deep down, that it’s all just lies and deceptions designed to destroy their political opponents!

.

Yellow Journalism has all but become the industry standard in today’s society. As a matter of fact, William Randolph Hearst, that much-maligned and infamous poster-boy for Yellow Journalism, would fit right in with today’s news-industry hucksters!

“THE WICKED…GO ASTRAY AS SOON AS THEY BE BORN, SPEAKING LIES”

Psalm 58:3

Well of course, this is nothing new! False accusers have been around a very long time!

.

This same underhanded tactic of twisting, omitting, adding-to, or out-and-out lying was used against Jesus, in attempt to convict Him of law-breaking. When the Governor Pilate sat down on the Bema Seat in the Judgment Hall, he finally condemned Jesus to death, after a long night of false accusations, all of which could not smear the spotless character and sinless behavior of the Lamb of God!

.

But Satan was confident that before the night was through, he would successfully convict Jesus of wrongdoing. And he eventually achieved his goal, by using false witnesses to implement a certain half-truth…“We heard Him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.” Mark 14:58

.

Yes, it was this half-truth that put Jesus on that cruel Cross.

Well, let’s “fast-forward”, back to today’s world.

A WAKE-UP CALL FOR GOD’S REMNANT PEOPLE

.

The world hasn’t changed so much in 2,000 years, has it? Well, at leahttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgst we’re not so different in the area of truthfulness. Yes, the same characters are still around, crafting and casting their lies and half-truths against their supposed enemies.

.

Now as the onlooking public beholds all these underhanded tactics being so freely used in the political realm, it really should be a wake-up call to Christians concerning the trial which is just now coming upon them.

.

Yes, if the world so freely lies and twists the facts against one-another, then how much more will they use the same tactics against Christians during “the hour of temptation, which shall ( very soon) come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” Revelation 3:10 (Parenthetical comment added by Editor)

“CHRIST JESUS CAME INTO THE WORLD TO SAVE SINNERS; OF WHOM I AM CHIEF”

1st Timothy 1:15

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Germany_Singelfingen_Gossips.jpg

.

Oh yes, Satan will have plenty of ammunition to hurl against us, without having to make up lies!

.

Because, the sad fact is, we Christians must all hang our heads in shame because of our own past missteps, misdeeds and mis-spoken words! And truth-be-told, our own past failings should convince us that we Christians have been every bit as guilty of disception and dishonesty as those whom we criticize in the press, and in society! We all need to hang our heads in shame!

.

Nevertheless, Satan is not content using mere truth against Christians! No, but he will also bring false accusers against God’s people, all in attempt to prejudice the unsaved world against the Gospel.

.

And this will truly be a time of great tribulation for those who love Jesus more than life itself!

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

Well, the Good News is, that the Bible is literally teeming with great and precious promises which God’s people can cling to while they are waiting for their Lord to rescue them at His 2nd Appearing!

.

For instance, King David had many accusers, bringing both true and false accusations against him.

.

Listen to how he responded… “They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long. But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth. Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs. For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.” Psalm 38:12-15

.

Here is seen that David met his false accusers with godly forbearance and faith-filled silence, because he put all his trust in God, and not in his own human wisdom or in his own abilities.

“GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES”

.

And so, the Reader is encouraged to use these final moments before the up-and-coming firestorm bursts out upon us, to hide as many of these kinds of great and precious promises in his or her heart.

.

Because as Peter admonishes us…“Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2nd Peter 1:4

.

Yes, it is by the great and precious promises in scripture that will deliver us from every satanic evil and each lurking danger which we must carefully and prayerfully walk through during the coming months.

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

“THE SCORNER (THE PHARISEE)”

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Once_in_a_Blue_Moon_(40034339832).jpgPlease tilt your head to the left. Do you see a man with a very long pointed nose. (Obviously, the sketch to the right is just an exaggeration in order to help you find the face in the photo to the left.)

.

Do you see an angry look? His right eye-brow is raised as if he is judging.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Blue_moon_of_31.08.2012.jpg

.

This second face in the Moon appears to be that of a combination of a man as well as a fox. Or maybe a wolf. Doesn’t he have a long narrow nose like a wolf or fox? Maybe even a dog. Nevertheless, the expression on his face, as he appears to look down upon the Earth, is that of scorn. Unlike the first Moon-man’s sad shock and awe; this ‘man/fox/wolf/dog’ appears to be that of anger and scorn. As if he is disgusted at the sinful planet below. He is very moral, you see.

THIS BEAST WITHIN

.

Well, the Bible has much to say about Pharisees. And the Bible has much to say about wolves, and foxes, and dogs. And this wolf-face inscribed in the Moon has much to tell us about ourselves. So if you are a truth-seeker, then this article will be an eye-opener, as we explore just what the Bible has to say about these things. And the fact is, this Pharisee Moon-Beast is in the heart of each and every human. And so, if you (or me) find that this wolf-man has some things in common, please don’t despair. For God is giving us these signs, while there still is time. While there still is hope.

.

.

.

.

.

THE PHARISEES…

.

“Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.” Prov. 21:24

.

Yes this wolf-like beast-face in the Moon, is what the Bible calls a proud Pharisee. They were the morality crowd. They were the finger pointers. They were the scorners. They didn’t realize that their own pride was even more reprehensible to God than the drunkenness, immorality, or sexual perversions of the unsaved of the world.
