John 1:1; John 17:17; Matt 24:35; 2Cor 13:8; John 8:43-45; James 4:6; The doctrine of the public lie part 4
John 1:1; In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 17:17; Sanctify them in the truth; Your word is truth.
Matt 24:35; Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.
2Cor 13:8; For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.
Ezek 28:15-16;15; "You were blameless in your ways From the day you were created Until unrighteousness was found in you.
16 "By the abundance of your trade You were internally filled with violence, And you sinned; Therefore I have cast you as profane From the mountain of God. And I have destroyed you, O covering cherub, From the midst of the stones of fire.
John 8:43-45;"Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word.
44 "You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
45 "But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me.
James 4:6; But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, "God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
We are now in a brief study of the public lie and the false narrative that people who are living in satan's cosmic system create in their opposition to truth.
When we stopped last time we were noting an example of a public lie that is found in Jer 27:10; "For they preach a lie to you, in order to remove you far from your land; and I will drive you out, and you will perish."
Jer 27:14-15; "So do not listen to the words of the prophets who speak to you, saying, `You shall not serve the king of Babylon,' for they prophesy a lie to you; for I have not sent them," declares the Lord," but they prophesy falsely in My name, in order that I may drive you out, and that you may perish, you and the prophets who prophesy to you."
In this case the public lie was a part of the administration of the fifth cycle of discipline to the southern kingdom of Judah. Whenever the public lie is operational, it always has an evil purpose.
Jeremiah told Zedekiah not to listen to the public lie that the fake news media of the day was broadcasting and submit to the authority of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon.
Zedekiah believed the public lie, rebelled against Nebuchadnezzar with the result that, Judah was destroyed in 586 B.C.
Zedekiah could not keep his promise to Nebuchadnezzar since he had no capacity for spiritual strength. Zedekiah revolted, was betrayed, captured by Nebuchadnezzar, watched his sons die before his eyes, and then Nebuchadnezzar gouged his eyes out.
Jer 29:21-23; "Thus says the Lord of the armies, the God of Israel, concerning Ahab the son of Kolaiah and concerning Zedekiah the son of Maaseiah, who are prophesying to you falsely in My name, `Behold, I will deliver them into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and he shall slay them before your eyes.'
v22 Because of t because they have acted foolishly in Israel, and have committed adultery with their neighbors' wives and have spoken words in My name falsely, which I did not command them; and I am He who knows and am a witness," declares the Lord.' "hem a curse shall be used by all the exiles from Judah who are in Babylon, saying, `May the Lord make you like Zedekiah and like Ahab, whom the king of Babylon roasted by fire.'"
v23 because they have acted foolishly in Israel, and have committed adultery with their neighbors' wives and have spoken words in My name falsely, which I did not command them; and I am He who knows and am a witness," declares the Lord.' "
Jer 29:31-32; "Send to all the exiles, saying, `Thus says the Lord concerning Shemaiah the Nehelamite,' "Because Shemaiah has prophesied to you, although I did not send him, and he has made you trust in a lie,"
v32 therefore thus says the Lord, "Behold, I am about to punish Shemaiah the Nehelamite and his descendants; he shall not have anyone living among this people, and he shall not see the prosperity that I am about to do to My people," declares the Lord, "because he has preached rebellion against the Lord."'"
The public lie is an evil device that is used to eliminate rivals or enemies or those who stand in the way of some person or group's acquisition of power and approbation lust.
Those who create a public lie use a false narrative and communicate it to destroy. This tells us all we need to know about the democrats, the fake news media and the never Trumpers who are continuously manufacturing public lies about president Trump.
We also see from these examples that God brings terrible judgment on everyone who is involved with the public lie because they are all responsible for their rejection of the truth.
People believe the public lie because they want to believe it is true not because it is true. The public lie fits their narrative the truth refutes their narrative.
