“And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment. ” (Isaiah 59:13-15)
Our nation is founded upon the free flow of truth.
Without the open expression of opinion and debate, we will become a totalitarian system. Such as China or Iran or every other nation that has chosen to control the minds of its people. To limit what they can consider. To limit what they can listen to. Or read. Or discuss openly.
And to limit what they may believe. And not simply in the spoken expression of belief but in their private practice. And in their private communications with one another.
If you can control a person’s mind, and what that mind is exposed to, you can control that person. And a nation of persons.
So, why then, do we think this will not happen to us?
Why do we refuse to see that this is happening to us Right Now?
Bow to the New Religious Order
In the midst of all this talk of equality and justice, we see nothing of the kind from the mainstream media.
Those who pretend to be the models of virtue, of fairness, and of equity in the marketplace prey upon those who disagree with them. They attack those who are claiming Fraud has occurred in the Presidential election.
They intimidate those who do not bow to the Religion of the Progressive media.
They are determined to establish their system. To move their agenda forward at all cost.
Those who speak the most about Equality, Fairness and Social Justice have become the very ones to deny those Rights to at least half of the American population.
Just think of the weight of this for a minute.
We are being denied a hearing in the public forum for our grievances. We are being denied a voice.
In this Land of the Free, those who control the Media, and the Tech Corporations that support that Media, and the totalitarian regimes that have paid to advance the ideas of the Progressives, have all denied the American people the full truth.
So that they can see and think and decide for themselves what is true.
The Robin Hood Illusion
The Media is like a thief, with his hand in the cash register, claiming to represent what is honest and fair for the shop owner; who watches in horror as the thief steals his money. Even while the thief claims to be a hero and a champion for the shop keeper.
As he claims to be the “Robin Hood” of our time. “Stealing from the rich to give to the poor“. Isn’t that the very claim they are always making?
Yet, he is really nothing but a thief and a criminal. A liar and sham. The Media has become the propaganda arm of the Progressive Left.
These men and women of the Media will be held accountable for limiting and manipulating the thoughts and images that the American people are allowed to see. For creating a false reality. For creating a “reality” that the Americans will be forced to accept.
The Lord Beholds the Hearts of Men
Meanwhile, the LORD considers the hearts of men.
He sees what is happening in the shadows. He sees the acts of the simple worker that chooses to look the other way. Who doesn’t want to get involved. Who cuts corners to insure an outcome for “the greater good”.
He sees every one who has chosen Not To Do the thing which is right.
The person who chooses to do something wrong so that something good may come.
The LORD Jesus Christ beholds all the plans of men. Even at the highest levels of power. Of all “the principalities and powers” that rule from the darkness of this world.
He sees the hearts and plans of “the rich men of the earth” who, within their most secret of councils, believe themselves forever safe and secure from discovery. And even then, from any punishment.
He sees their plans within plans. Their evil plans too complicated and twisted to prove. Achieved by the sleight of hand. Achieved in the wee hours of the night when no one could observe.
But Nothing is hid from the LORD’S sight. He will bring every evil work to Light. And every evil work to Judgment.
In His time. And in His Season.
