“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

 Crocodile tears are a type of venomous venom

produced by the crocodile.

They are produced in response to a threat,

such as an attack by a predator,

and are used to defend themselves and their young.

The venom is highly toxic to humans…

the venom can cause severe pain

and swelling in the mouth and throat,

which can lead to death if not treated quickly.

It is said that a certain thought-leader urges his fellow ideologues to avoid criticism by preemptively accusing their political foes first, of the very same evil deeds that they themselves are practicing.

.

And such advice has obviously been very well-received by many of his followers!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Computer_hacking.jpgYes, there’s a whole lot of finger-pointing going on these days, wouldn’t you agree?

.

In this very unhappy world, the creation of the Internet and social media has opened up the ability to engage in mob-like character assassination. Millions of Internet users can now gleefully participate in and enjoy the destruction of the lives of others while maintaining their own anonymity.

VICTIMHOOD…

.

There has been a growing movement in the western nations in which many are claiming to be victims of some type of oppression.

.

And this new craze of being a victim has become a very power force…even an industry, because there is, not only elevated social-status, but often, even financial incentives for claiming victimhood.

.

And this new craze is not just for individuals! No, even racial groups, political groups, religious groups, and yes, even nations have joined in the race to victimhood, realizing how much power and riches it might yield!

.

.

.

.

.

.

CRYING CROCODILE TEARS?

.

This current phenomenon has recently been tagged, “Cry-Bullying” and refers to those who claim victimhood so that the social-media mob can join together to bully their supposed enemies. And thus, they cry “I’m a victim” in attempt to cast aspersion upon them, thus placing them in a weak and vulnerable position!

.

And quite often, they accuse their opponents of the very evil behavior which they themselves regularly engage in!

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

For just one example among many, certain groups have risen up claiming to fight fascism, while they themselves are striving to bring in some form of fascism!

.

Another example is how learning institutions are advocating for anti-racism while indoctrinating students into another brand of racism!

.

The government is claiming that Christians are guilty of oppressing certain forms of sin in order to oppress the Christian community.

.

Nations are attacking other nations and then crying victimhood when that other nation retaliates!

.

Even back in the Garden, Eve was deceived into believing that she was being oppressed by God, being prevented from reaching her true potential.

.

Yes, victimhood has always been a powerful weapon, even used by that master-deceiver, Lucifer, who convinced a third of the host of Heaven to rebel against God!

.

.

.

.

Now, some of the current name-calling sounds like this: “They’re a bunch of Nazi Fascists!” “He’s are racist!” “He’s a modern day Hitler!” “They’re a bunch of ‘such-&-such-Phobes’!”

.

For those who watch the daily news shows, these smears are commonly heard, and oft repeated!

A LIE REPEATED OFTEN

.

Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister for Adolph Hitler said, “If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it. If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth.”

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bundesarchiv_Bild_146-1968-101-20A,_Joseph_Goebbels.jpg

And isn’t it true that this demonizing of political enemies by branding them as “Nazis”, “Fascists”, and/or “racists” is very effective?

.

And using the major media as willing accomplices, the public now hears these derogatory names being repeatedly chanted on a 24/7/365 basis to the point that these false accusations against their political adversaries eventually begin to take root in the minds of the masses.

.

Yes, these modern-day ideology-warriors in both politics, and also in the media, instinctively know that George Goebbels was right in his assertion that “a lie repeated often enough, it becomes truth”.

.

So then, could it be said, that the very ones currently following the same philosophical views of that notorious Nazi leader, Joseph Goebbels, are actually the true Nazi’s? And the true Fascists? And the true Racists? And the true ‘such-&-such-Phobes’?

Ephesians 6:12

.

Of course, credit must be given to the true source of this phenomenon. Yes, “the god of this world”, Lucifer, now titled, The Devil and Satan, and the great Dragon is the true mastermind and orchestrator of this gargantuan movement!

.

And because, Satan now “speaks as a dragon”, through the media, and learning institutions, he has the ability to stir up hatred and anger and even violence amongst his unsaved citizenry of the nations.

.

As this above verse from Ephesians reveals, it is not humans who are at the root of all this hatred and neo-racism. But rather, it is the unseen spiritual powers of the darkness of this world who are stoking the flames of all this division and hatred. Oh yes, the unsaved people of this world are unwittingly being used and manipulated by these dark forces of evil. But behind it all is the true hater-in-chief…Satan and his fallen angels!

I AM GUILTY OF THE SAME!

.

Well, today’s devotional is still attempting to further bring out this concept that at whatever point we judge another, we are guilty of the same.

.

Listen again…“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

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

.

Yes, the Bible forewarns us that when we point the accusing finger at someone else, there are three fingers pointing back at us: THREE FINGERS FROM HEAVEN!

NAME-CALLING ONLY REVEALS WHAT’S IN MY OWN HEART!

.

What these erring individuals do not realize is that when we accuse our opponents of being fascists or racists or bigots or phobics of one stripe or another, we are unknowingly revealing what’s in our own heart!

.

And if we who defame others were ever given political authority, we would most likely carry out the same Nazi-like fascism, racism, or bigotry that we are accusing our political opponents of possessing?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anti-Christian_sign_in_Federal_Plaza_Chicago.jpgAs a matter of fact, certain political factions who daily accuse their political foes of being “fascists” are they themselves now beginning to call for suppression of free speech, sometimes even to the point of physical violence. In other words, are not the finger-pointers at others actually, they themselves, behaving just like totalitarian fascists of the past had always behaved? It’s a good question to ask ourselves.

.

The Bible clearly teaches…“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

.

As this above verse reveals, humans just do not know how much wickedness is bound up in our own heart! And it’s truly an amazing phenomenon to hear the very ones who most loudly engage in name-calling of others, by their own verbal attacks, actually describe their own selves! Are they so self-deceived to not realize their own hypocrisy?

And truth-be-told, all this pandemic anger is a fulfillment of the following prophecy concerning these end-times…

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-081218-M-4507D-001.jpg

“And the nations were angry,

and Thy wrath is come,

and the time of the dead,

that they should be judged”

Revelation 11:18

 

.

Yes, this above prophecy informs us that Judgment Day has already begun!

.

And so, right now, it would be a critically wise decision for those who are immersed in their hate-filled anger, to turn to the Lord with all their heart, and to plead for true repentance, before it’s too late!

“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 eyebrow is raised as if he is judging.

.

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 look of shock and awe (click here to see and read about); 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.

THE PHARISEES…

.

“Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.” Proverbs 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.
