Pattern of Lies
How to not be Fooled by the Lies
We see how to not be deceived by the pattern of lies, liars, and lying spirits. We can look around us and see that we , our friends, and a good deal of our nation has been deceived, and badly so. We have a story in the Bible about a liar sent to be used in warfare. His name was Rabshakeh, and he was a captain, sent my a brutal marauding emperor Senacharib, to talk to the men of Judah, get them snookered, discouraged, and confused. Thus, he hoped to make his battle against the easier. Actually, he was pretty good at it. Rabshakeh used a pattern of accusations, lies, and false deals. it might have worked had the Judahites not believed in God; had they not known something about that God was different; had there not been a prophet on the seen and a good king. Isaiah 37( & II Chronicles 36 and 2Kings 18 & 19)
Lies, Accusations, Projections, Intimidation, Misleading Deals
We are going to look at prophet Isaiah's memory of the incident. he doesn't sanitize the picture that Rabshakeh paints as much as Ii Chronicles. Fear is a weapon. Confusion is a weapon. But hope for normalcy can also be a weapon. Notice that he gives misleading deals, painted with comforting words. The kingdom needed to take a step back and carefully consider. They needed to compare what they were hearing with what they knew. They needed to consult God.
is This Really an Attack on the Church?
In the final analysis, the attack was on God and God's character. Rabshakeh was only a captain, doing what his emperor was telling him. That emperor worshiped an idol that today we think really was a front for a demon. Anyway, God was personally confronted. Not just the religion; not just the kingdom, not just all the people, but the thing went to the depth. Rabshakeh used God's person name and said over and over that that God could not stand up to the Assyrians.
And so, God took it personally. We see in the end of the story, how God reserved the lat move for Himself. Judah won without fighting this time. Most of the time, they did have to show up. This time, they had to just not be deceived by the lying.
So, today, we focus on the pattern of lying.
If this is not very clear to you, would you like a retrospective, along with a course in reasoning? Seriously, I am so amazed in a bad way at how people have been so fooled. Can people really be that stupid? Are that many people really paid off? What is going on?
