DEAR TURNAROUND CATALYSTS,
TWENTY YEARS FROM THIS SEPTEMBER 11, historians will point back to the disastrous, accelerated withdrawal from Afghanistan as a major turning point for the United States. If we learn the right lessons, they will celebrate how our governmental leaders finally recover America’s destiny as a torch of truth and freedom for the world. If our present course is retained, historians will mourn how the extinguishing of America’s torch of truth and freedom actually accelerates horrific oppression globally.
Acting on Deception Brings Destruction
As Joe Biden’s Afghanistan catastrophe shows, acting on deception and disinformation brings destruction. For some reason Biden decided to elevate his policy goal to accelerate America’s withdrawal above truthful, real-time intelligence he was receiving. I’m sure some of the intelligence Biden received was intentionally manufactured into disinformation in order to justify his policy. That’s exactly what his predecessor President Obama did regarding Iraq.
Nevertheless the warnings were still clear. Unfortunately, disinformation won the day. And in a single day Biden lost a 20 year war.
From the White House to your house we must learn to discern between truth and manufactured disinformation. We cannot long employ open deception, we cannot long broadcast lying propaganda, we cannot long build our future on exaggerated claims, without succumbing to the consequences.
Laws of Gravity, Laws of Truth
The Bible conveys Heaven’s plumbline for revealed truth. Before God established the laws of gravity He established laws of truth. This means an irreversible law remains in play for those who choose to defy truth as He defines it. “…They did not accept the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness” (2 Thess. 2:10-12).
That said, manufactured disinformation is one of the most prominent tools being used by the enemy right now to sabotage our lives, our culture and our world.
Securing the Turnaround Anointing
Unfortunately the embrace of disinformation has impacted the ministry world. And even the prayer and prophetic movements. Many have actually given up on watchmen prayer because of disappointments after going to war with prophetic expressions that stretched the truth beyond Heaven’s counsel.
Here’s a hard truth. God is not committed to uphold prophecies, decrees and declarations not sourced in His counsel. Jeremiah 23 makes this pretty clear. The passage also shows that truth sourced from Heaven’s council carries an anointing for turnaround!
“As for the prophets: My heart is broken within me… But who has stood in the council of the Lord, that he should see and hear His word? Who has paid attention to His word and listened?… I did not send these prophets, but they ran. I did not speak to them, but they prophesied. But if they had stood in My council, then they would have announced My words to My people, and would have turned them back from their evil way and from the evil of their deeds” (Jer. 23:9-22).
Pay attention to this point. Truth sourced from Heaven’s council secures an anointing for turnaround!
And that’s exactly what we need in this hour.
The Truth Shall Make You Free
“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” This precept from Jesus, recorded in John 8:32, convey His amazing power for turnaround for those who embrace the truth. Our freedom depends on it.
Amazingly, these words are actually engraved on the wall of the Central Intelligence Agency, and have been adopted as their unofficial slogan. A very wise foundation! In many ways the intelligence community serve as Issachar watchmen for our government and military. For our intelligence community to bring victory to any mission, they must SEE CLEARLY.
Interestingly, the symbol for Israel’s renown intelligence office the Mossad also conveys a breakthrough in truth. The choice of a menorah to represent the office symbolically invokes the light of God’s glory to shine His overcoming truth! Further it invokes the legacy of the Maccabees, who defeated the strongest army in the known world to restore their desolate heritage.
Behind the scenes, the Mossad embraces a vastly different unofficial slogan which other intelligence agencies also eagerly employ. “By deception thou shall wage war.”
Hindsight is 2020
I’m not so naive as to believe deceptive inferences should be abandoned as a strategic tactic to throw our enemies off track. But we are now seeing disinformation tactics once used only by intelligence communities now being utilized by political parties to shape societal norms and control the masses.
Just a few years ago manufactured disinformation by the highest levels of American intelligence, broadcast by the highest levels of American media, sabotaged the former President of the United States and his administration from the very onset of his term.
And there’s way too much plausible evidence that manufactured disinformation also brought way too much influence over the 2020 elections. Not just on election day but in the months leading up. Hindsight being 2020, it’s hard to miss that there was an unrighteous agenda catalyzing and driving many events. The very unsettledness in the atmosphere bears witness that there’s more going on than what meets the eye.
The good news is that many of the people who initially tolerated this manipulation are now questioning their decision.
Remember that the disinformation of Nazi propaganda seduced the most advanced nation in western Europe to embrace the most extreme prejudice the world has ever known, plunging the nations into war and resulting in the deaths of at least six million Jews. Warning! This is truly the path we are on right now.
Once again—hindsight is 2020. Lets learn our lessons well. “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty” (2 Cor. 3:17).
Steps to Overcome Disinformation
So how do you discern manufactured deception? How do you overcome it? Answering these questions are vital to retaining your integrity and securing victory for your future.
Of course, it all begins with loving Jesus. Concurrently, you must exert effort to cultivate a love of truth and an intolerance of deception. The Bible also compels us to exercise our discernment between good and evil as a means to gain maturity—and by inference, the competence implied by maturity.
Lets begin by repenting for all ways in which you have yourself manufactured and employed disinformation to achieve a desired end.
From Ephesians 3:17, Pray for a spirit of revelation in the knowledge of Jesus. This is vital to pray for yourself and for others. Pray that your eyes become enlightened, full of holy fire, that you may know the hope of His calling and yours, and more fully perceive the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints. The Apostle Paul prayed this prayer continually for himself and his followers. You should too.
Finally, 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 shares vital revelation on how to intercede over those whom Satan has deceived.
“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they will not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
Note the imagery. Satan is pictured taking people hostage. As with hostages in the natural, Satan’s blindfolds paralyze the recipients because they are prevented from gaining genuine situational awareness that could lead to action.
Want to see freedom come to captives? Pray the blinders off! Pray until they perceive for themselves the glory of Christ. And from that moment they can no longer be held in captivity against their will. The freedom pathway becomes clear!
