THE SPIRIT OF DELUSION WHEN TRUTH IS IGNORED…..
When truth is actually ignored. When you love someone, and you may have discernment, about something, and you tell them, you try to warn them, and they reject it….ignore it….
Or they give you “intelligent” reasoning. Which I call ignorance….
Why is it ignorance? Because it is denying what God says, and someone is making a decision, that is contrary to what He commands and says. He doesn’t change folks. We do! And when we disobey, there are consequences.
Sadly….All you can do, is just pray for that person or persons….I have learned, you cannot argue about truth. It stands on its own merit.
If the spirit deceives you, to believe a lie, you won’t see the truth.
AND WITH ALL DECEIVABLENESS OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS IN THEM THAT PERISH, BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED. FOR THIS CAUSE GOD SHALL SEND THEM STRONG DELUSION THAT THEY SHOULD BELIEVE A LIE. II THESSALONIANS 2:10-11. KJV
Its a spirit of delusion, that yes God allows, because you ignored His truth. One thing I have learned, God will not take you to the next blessing, if you have ignored, His correction. His truth, or even His servant. Remember Moses? And the stiff-necked people he dealt with? They walked around in circles, for 40 years….
This pride thing, about being rebellious, when truth is presented. Is purely disobedience in His eyes. It hurts a soul, when someone, rejects truth… The humble person, at least acknowledges it. Doesn’t debate it, doesn’t argue, and may even say thank you.
Wow what a concept.
The sad thing is, one then may ignore the one who ignored the truth, because they just won’t listen. What can one do? But shake the dust off.
Its not acting holier than thou, its love, its a warning. And someday God will show you again, if you ask Him. But do you really want to wait 40 years?
Live and learn….. I only wish, I had not been rebellious when I was.
To each their own….
