“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
Woe unto them who love this "evil world", for "the WHOLE
world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one!"
(John 7:7, Galatians 1:4, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, II Corinthians 4:4,)
So, "Whoever loves this world is the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD"!
And discernment clearly reveals ALL nations are of this evil world!
"For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of GOD; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised in the DISCERNMENT of that which is good and that which is evil." (Hebrews 5:13-14)
Discernment! Now why is discernment needful?
There are those who would testify that discernment is not needful, not REALizing that every choice, every "yes" or "no" they voice requires such! Others would accuse those who exercise discernment of 'judging' and/or self-righteousness. TRUTH IS that discernment is choice’s partner in life, especially for those who desire to "cleave to that which is good". (I Corinthians 2:14, Romans 12:9)
As for calling 'good, evil' and 'evil, good'?
Sadly, the "god of this world", he who is “the father of the lies”, he has made a game of such...... (II Corinthians 4:4, John 8:44)
The "gevid’ game!
A devilish game indeed!
For such is a deadly game!
A game that kills the spirit within mankind!
Yet there are multitudes who play his game!
And all who play are losers!
First you begin with two evils, such as there are in physical warfare among the nations of this world, ALL of which are ruled by "the god of this world". Now when warfare commences between two nations as one nation seeks to kill and destroy the other, most all 'natural' humanoids choose sides. They have 'discerned' that this side, or that side, is the “righteous (good)” side, so they align themselves with that side (nation[s]). (II Corinthians 4:4, I John 5:19, James 4:1-4)
Now if it were a case of them believing they had chosen for the lesser 'evil', well that would still be a problem, yet not as grave a problem as that which is caused by what usually happens.
For those who have chosen sides (and i speak not of those who believe killing and war is a 'good' and necessary thing), the lesser 'evil' in their own eyes gets their support and sympathy.
And as the chains of "strong delusion" bind them tighter and tighter, the lesser 'evil' becomes their version of 'good'! So it is they have their portion with all those who played the "gevid" game!
And ALL who play are losers!
Such is the way a lie becomes 'white', shadows become 'light', lust becomes 'love', and that which is of this "evil world" becomes the desire of someones heart! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17)
Very sad indeed!!
And The Spirit must flee!!!
WWII was a prime example. One of the nations, declared to be 'good' by 'christian' and other religious systems, perpetrated the most heinous act of terrorism yet known to mankind, as tens of thousands of civilians were 'nuked' in an instant, not once but twice!
That same nation, the u.s. of a., was born in the bloodshed that was rebellion against authority! And now she seeks to put down any rebellion that is not of their liking, for they call such a rebellion the 'evil' kind.
Yes! nations play the "gevid" game to the utmost!
And the usa, and other nations born in the bloodshed of rebellion won't accept The TRUTH that all physical rebellion is of the flesh and is 'evil', for that is their heritage! And that becomes their legacy.......
Using force of any kind, or the use of any thing that would provoke a nation of this "evil world" to use destructive force, is not 'good'. The result will always gender that which evermore binds mankind in the chains of "strong delusion"!
And religion leads the way in the "gevid" game, for ALL religion (except for James 1:27) is of the 'god of this world', and are but systems of "strong delusion" for they have made 'gray' there favorite color! (II Corinthians 4:4)
So it is that their version of “good” has become but another form of “evil (gevid)"!
Sadly, because of this world's religions, “Truth lies dead in the streets”!
There IS only One "Pure Religion and Undefiled"!
Not a religious system but an Active, Living Faith!
Simply, ALL other religion IS "IMPURE and DEFILED"!
"Come out from among them and be separate!"
(II Corinthians 6:17)
Hope IS that there would be those who would choose for the 'good', those who would rightly declare the 'lesser evil' to be just that! 'EVIL (not Good)'!
That can not happen without 'discernment' for many of you read, and read again that "the WHOLE (not just a portion) world is under the control of the evil one" and yet you remain steadfast in your love for a certain portion of the 'WHOLE" "evil world". (John 7:7; 12:25, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, Galatians 1:4, James 1:27; 4:4)
And such worldly 'love' soon causes one to believe the 'WHOLE' does not
apply to their particular ’portion’ of this wicked, "evil world"!
And the chains of "strong delusion" bind them tighter and tighter!
Now if you believe what this world, and some of it's religion's call their 'bible,'
why then do you delude your own selves?
Why do you consider the 'WHOLE' to be but a 'portion'?
Is it because you are comfortable?
Those who find their comfort in, and of, this wicked, evil world and/or it's things, begin to conform themselves unto that which made them comfortable!
Do you find your comfort (rightly called "ease of life")
in and of this evil world and it's things?
(I John 2:15-17)
Or do you find comfort in "The TRUTH" as revealed in
The Testimonies by "a cloud of witnesses"?
Are you one of the witnesses? Or have you chosen to be of those who “wrest the scriptures unto their own destruction” because of your "love for this world and your own life in it"? (II Peter 3:16, John 12:25)
Simply that which is of The One and Only True GOD, FATHER(Creator) of ALL is GOOD, all else is evil (not Good)! (Matthew 19:17)
"Exercise your senses", "stand in the gap" and above all receive "a love of The TRUTH, without which one can not be saved"! And apart from "The TRUTH", "The Life" remains but a 'shadow', as “the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life” cause one to call “good, evil and evil, good”...... (Hebrews 5:14, Ezekiel 22:30, II Thessalonians 2:10-12, I John 2:15-17, Isaiah 5:20)
Quit playing the 'gevid' game!
Thankfully HOPE IS! For TRUTH IS! Miracles do happen!
And unless one experiences The Miracle that is receiving "a love of The TRUTH", "The Way to The TRUTH of The Life" remains naught but those "colored marks written on a dead tree and bound in fabrication"! But biased and perverted "dead letters", void of "The Life"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-12, John 14:6, Romans 7:6)
So it is the brethren of The Messiah have taken heed unto
The Call of Our FATHER and GOD to:
"Come Out of her(babel/dis-order/babylon\world\religion), MY people!"
No longer do we play the games that are of this evil world and/or religion's way, for we have our portion !NOW! with The Messiah in The Family of Our FATHER and GOD, "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"! (Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 6:10)
And NEW "Jerusalem which IS above IS FREE, and is !NOW! the mother of us all (son's of Our FATHER and GOD)"! (Galatians 4:26)
So it is we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven", and we choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth"! For soon and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last! (Hebrews 11:13, I Peter 2:11, Philippians 3:20, John 14:2-3)
We REALize evermore of how "poor and needy" we truly are, and so we "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"........ (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7)
Evermore sounding and resounding The Declaration of Dependence:
HE DID! and HE does.......
So Peace IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way....... (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4; 1:27)
ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER and GOD!
