Political Hysteria & Men of Substance

by John Greene

“Men of substance with no discernment of righteousness speak words as cattle that are to be brought to silence.” – Psalm 49:20, Project for Truth

politics and faithIn this day, we seem to live in times of unprecedented hysteria. Nowhere is this seen more often than in the ideas of community, government policy, politics – and the reaction of people to these ideas. Poor judgment and knee-jerk reactions seem to be the mainstay of all of these, rather than sound thinking or careful thought. Media accentuates the sensational. The feelings and expectations that drive ideals of tradition are expressed in ways that are often as poorly expressed as those that drive the politics of radicals and those that would shun or destroy tradition.

roaring-lionWhere Christians are concerned, much of this confusion exists because Christians have forgotten their roots and why they believe what they do – what their significance truly is and why. Instead of being set apart to Elohim [‘God’, YHWH], multitudes that profess Christianity follow after the world and give lip service to the spiritual. (Mark 7:6; Acts 17:11; Hebrews 11:1-6; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 6:3; Psalm 16:1-33, 28:7, 32:10, 40:3-4, 56:3-4, 91:1-16, 112:7, 118:8-9; Isaiah 26:4, 29:13; Jeremiah 17:5; “The Antichrist & War on Reality“; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “Politics & the Path to Enlightenment“; “Christians, Tyranny & the Man of Lawlessness“)

“’These people draw near to Me with their mouth and respect Me with lips, but their heart is distant from Me. But in vanity they worship Me, teaching for instruction the commandments of men.’” – Matthew 15:8-9, Project for Truth

“Woe to the arrangement, the scandal of man’s governance because they make distress and snares appear; but woe to that same man by whom the snare comes.” – Matthew 18:7, Project for Truth

lip service

Part of lip service is because the majority of Christians have left their thinking, trust and relationship with the Father, Son and Spirit to others. Pastors and other religious leaders tell them what they should believe, and to save time in a hurried and disregarded life, Christians make these leaders their ‘Holy Spirit‘ [Dedicated, Set Apart Ruach]. Christians often do the same thing where other leaders are concerned as well, even as these Christians speak out about the benefits of being personally and intimately involved in the politics and policies of the world. These have placed their trust in men rather than their “profession of faith.” They don’t trust their Heavenly Father, appreciate the sacrifice of the Messiah, or believe in the ‘Holy Spirit.’ This is as evident by the captured words of their thinking on the internet as it is in their course of life. They are obsessed with the nations of the world. They would trust only themselves or other men and women to build “God’s Kingdom” here on earth, that is, if this idea registers on their personal radar at all. (John 14:10-27; James 4:7; 1 John 4:16; 2 Timothy 2:15, 3:13-17; Psalm 9:10, 31:14-15, 119:1-176; Deuteronomy 28:1-68; Leviticus 26:1-46; “Wisdom & the Battle of Two Kingdoms“; “The Abomination That Causes Desolation“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

“Trust in YHWH with all heart, not relying in your wisdom. All your course of life should know Him. He will make straight your road.” – Proverbs 3:5-6, Project for Truth

“Listen attentively, certainly regarding the arrangement of higher matters regarding rulers and men. The utterance of my lips is what is upright. Certainly my mouth speaks truth in righteousness. Wickedness is a disgusting thing to my lips.” – Proverbs 8:6-7, Project for Truth

“A wicked man is overthrown by calamity. A righteous man is protected by his ruin.” – Proverbs 14:32, Project for Truth

breakingstrongholds7-300x300More importantly, more and more professed Christians have willingly and eagerly taken on the strongholds of the world as part of their personal habit. Instead of being set apart to their Father or “their Jesus”, they are set apart to the world and what is in it. Anger, hatred, bitterness, jealousy, envy, fear, and the like are their personal robes, their personal idolatry of false faith – for their trust is evident based on the Word of scripture. They listen to a world leadership that preys on false hope and panders to fear. Anxiety and “what-ifs” are the rule of the day. This is not what we are to focus on. Disciples of the Messiah have a purpose and another focusa different mindset! (Matthew 6:14-15; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 1 Peter 5:8; Isaiah 54:17; Psalm 27:1; “Milenniums of Human Exploitation“; “Trusting in YHWH Instead of Princes“; “The Stronghold of Anger“; “Disciples & the Occult of the World“)

“Because we walk in the flesh, we do not serve according to the flesh. For the tools of our service in warfare are not fleshly, but powerful through Elohim to the destruction of strongholds. Destroy imaginations and all high places that are exalted over the knowledge of Elohim and make captive every mind to obedience of the Messiah. For in being prepared, put down all inattention as your obedience is complete.” – 2 Corinthians 10:3-6, Project for Truth

“Because now the principalities and authorities in the heavens [of the world] must be made known through the gathering, [ekklesia, body of Messiah, ‘church’] the many-sided wisdom of Elohim according to the age, a sacrificial offering [as the showbread] which is brought forward in Messiah Yahshua our Master, in Whom we possess boldness and assurance, with reliance through belief in Him.” – Ephesians 3:10-12, Project for Truth

“Seeing that you understood Him and were taught in Him according to truth that is in Yahshua [Jesus], you cast off the manner of the previous behavior of the old man, the corruption according to the desires of delusion. Also, you renewed the spirit of your understanding and clothed yourself with the regenerated man according to Elohim, fashioned in righteousness and truly set apart.” – Ephesians 4:21-24

“For we do not profit wrestling against flesh and blood, but against the rule of power, against delegated authority, against the world rulers, the darkness of this age, against spiritual iniquity on high. Because of this, take up the full armor of Elohim, that you have the power to resist in the evil age, and having fully accomplished all, to stand.” – Ephesians 6:12-13, Project for Truth

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The name Yahshua [Y’shua] is an original language name for Jesus.
He is often referred to simply as the Messiah or Master.
