Below you will find an example of the Problem with Prophecy Sites and Bloggers or Aggregators who collect and disseminate information.
It is a story about Jews and Arabs. Both are living in Jerusalem. Both buy and sell property reguarly in Israel, both have been reported on almost ten years ago doing the same thing they are doing in todays headlines.
But notice the Issue.
How do you react to a Bible Prophecy Site focusing and playing the Orthodox Card on a Land Issue in Israel? How do you feel about Israeli (Arab or Jew Or Christian or other ethnic group) owning land legally Israel under Israeli law?
Currently there are issues being used by Web sites and Blogs and Political Pundits to "get your attention" so you will visit and "click a link" to get some web site some income so they can continue to provide you with "news".
Almost all sites do it, but notice we are talking about Prophecy. The Word of God. The Bible. The revelation of Jesus or return of Jesus.
Sites, and authors who once were all about Prophecy are no longer worried about accuracy as they are creating and inflating a sensation that makes you "itch" or "desire" to get more.
WND World News Daily, after growing quite large with several linked monetary venues and resources, doesn't claim to be a Prophecy Only site, but if you exmaine the accuracy versus the inflagrancy factor, tabloid journalism is alive and well with almost as many posts to promote speculation, rumor and innuendo than fact.
A slippery slope if you are using both Prophecy in your tabloids with inflagration of sensationalism like the phony Birth Certificate stories. Like any other story, it should be weighed not only in the balance of investigation, but realization, WHY is somone promoting the preposterous.
In Prophecy we are given a More Sure Word and we aren't required to be false, lie, or accurate or innacurate, The Word of God is sure.
It rests it's interpretation and application on a resource that cannot be distorted.
The Holy Spirit and You.
You alone, with God and your Bible, are the tools God uses to prove and approve himself to you by revealing in your daily circumstance, life, ...... the fact His Word is always true though you may take time to learn how it is so.
The others, including all these sites as well as mine, are not. We are tools at best which will either aid or hinder you in your life and understanding of Jesus.
Even as these two stories contradict, and others sites assault your common sense by casting aspersions....,
You are not called to doubt or faith in men or web sites, but an assurance God gives that when you Hear the Truth....it won't tickle your ears, or make you suspicious, or make you riot, protest, or fight, but rather;
As the Word of God is a Mirror, it will make you look at yourself and others and see how miserable humanity is without seeing and staying focused on Jesus.
Jesus is Coming.
There is no doubt.
Some wish he would wait.
Some wish to distract you from that fact and get busy on other things.
Some will use that idea, but turn you from it quickly to support thier agenda.
You alone have to decide.
For me, broke, I don't pay attention to that which wastes my time or tries to argue some silly point I have seen a thousand times before.
I don't need to sensationalize anything....., but will often speak about what you don't want to hear and I sometimes don't want to tell you....... because I frankly like all these sites........ even with thier glaring faults.
Recently I answered the call when a major Christian figure was attacked by another major Christian figure and the one was a "accusation site" that always wants to "purify you" but rarely if ever presents Jesus or the Gospel.
The other presents the gospel and wants you personally to seek Jesus and could care less where you go as long as you go and find Jesus.
I was confronted also by a Well Known pundit who was whining about a new service stealing his material and using it on a well know television News channel, (not a chance), without putting HIS name on it.
Flesh is easy, we can all give in to it, but accuracy is only IN the Spirit of God as He alone Leads you and Helps you to hear what it is He would have you to know.
When it comes to Prophecy, it has to point to Jesus or it is not.
Look to your FAVORITE SITES, but as the End is Near,
Men, ministries, prophecy sites, bloggers, will increasingly be lovers of self over lovers of God and will promote almost everything and anything except Jesus.
One popular poster, a political pundit, in almost every post will talk seven or more paragraphs on some issue, then add one scripture that does not fit at the very end in closing, and call it Prophecy.
Folks, as one of my Blogs says, The Time is at Hand.
Learn, grow, abide, love and live in Grace and Mercy of Jesus Chrsit and DO look for his coming soon, but also recognize the Times we live in.
Now more than Ever you will have to be EXTREMELY CAREFUL to Guard your Souls, not just because the issuances of life comes from it,......... but because there is a War for your Soul and Attention to Distract you from what you should be doing...,
I call it ADD or A.D.D.
If you ADD anything to the fact you are called to share Jesus and Look for his Coming and Prepare for the Lord, Dont get
- Attracted to it.
- Distracted by it.
- Decieved in it.
Proverbs 3:5, 6 is your answer tom all of life and you know what that is.
