The Power of the Lie

Deception may cause blindness and a hardened heart, but the fear of the Lord brings peace and clarity like nothing else will.

In a recent dream, I was preparing to go through the procedure to end an unexpected pregnancy. Throughout the preparation I didn’t think anything of it, other than the fact that I hadn’t planned on this. My entire thought process was that this was normal, routine, and easily justified because of my life.

It wasn’t until I was getting closer to the table that I suddenly realized what I was doing. This was an abortion! It was like waking up from a nightmare. As much as I tried to account for my blind reasoning, I had to face the reality that I was going to kill an unborn child!

I was horrified to realize what I was about to do. I couldn’t believe that I had actually surrendered my mind to a lie and trap that would have made me complicit to murder. I saw myself standing in the waiting room in utter shock. How did I ever get here!?

Upon waking, I was amazed at how I could have been so blind and deceived. And yet, I knew the Lord was giving me a taste of the level of demonic deception that’s in our nation. Good people have come under a delusion, not just concerning abortion, but about numerous other life-altering decisions that will forever change who we are. Whether it’s about the jab, a gender transition, or turning someone into the police for not masking, the power of delusion blinds a person from reality. It blocks their ability to reason and see the destructive end result of their choices.

“See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.” (Colossians 2:8 ESV)

In my dream, I had allowed myself to be LED BY A LIE. Instead of stopping and considering the ramifications of the decision, I simply followed the tide. Everyone else did it…they said it was normal…there’s no need to question the reasoning…. It wasn’t until I stopped to listen to my own heart and conscience that the lie lost hold. A light turned on and the fear of the Lord returned.

We must continue to exhort one another towards righteousness and truth (Hebrews 3:12-13). Take the time to stop, look, and listen to the heart of God. We can’t allow the Pied Piper of Propaganda to lead us into a pit of no return. The Spirit of Truth wants to come with REVELATION to shine the light on the works of darkness. Deception may cause blindness and a hardened heart, but the fear of the Lord brings peace and clarity like nothing else will.

“You, therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:17-18)
