Whether Or Not You Believed The Warnings May Indicate The Inclination Of Your Heart
One of the primary messages found in John 7 is that the person who seeks to do God’s will is better equipped to recognize Truth when they hear it. In the debate leading up to Obamacare, many people tried to warn America that it was not what its supporters claimed, and the majority of them were attacked, demonized and – to the extent that the media and other supporters of Obamacare could manage – destroyed. Now that it is in operation, real world events are showing that the majority of those warnings were the Truth. Whether or not you believed the warnings before real world events showed the warnings to be True can tell you something about your heart. And now that we have evidence that those warnings were True, how you react can tell you if you should be worried about your soul.
There are death panels, and the architect of Obamacare has admitted it on TV. As it turns out, people cannot keep their plans or their doctors, and Obamacare is going to cost a great deal more than what we were led to believe. We’re also finding out that our privacy will become non-existent under Obamacare – again, just as people tried to warn us. And other stories in the news have started to show that former Obamacare supporters are starting to realize they were wrong, and those who tried to warn us were right:
The Obama administration has known for at least three years that millions of Americans would not be able to keep their current health care plans, despite repeated promises to the contrary made by President Barack Obama, NBC News reports, citing sources “deeply involved” in Obamacare.
A Florida woman recently dropped from her health insurance plan said she’s been told she will have to pay nearly 10 times more for new coverage under the new health care law.
“When I got this bill, I was outraged,” 56-year-old Florida resident Diane Barrett told CBS News.
She will go from paying $54 per month to $591 per month under the Affordable Care Act, CBS reported.
“They need to review the this secret world and its power in their government because you run into this rats nest of concealment and lies time and time again then and now,” Woodward said of the White House during his appearance on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “You get to a point where it’s what do you worry about? Secret governments.”
“I spent two years defending Obamacare. I had constituents scream at me, spit at me and call me names that I can’t put in print. The congressman was not re-elected in 2010 mainly because of the anti-Obamacare anger. When the congressman was not re-elected, I also (along with the rest of our staff) lost my job. I was upset that because of the health care issue, I didn’t have a job anymore but still defended Obamacare because it would make health care available to everyone at, what I assumed, would be an affordable price. I have now learned that I was wrong. Very wrong.”
Here is what I would ask you. If God is Truth and Satan is the father of all deception (as Scripture says), and you did not recognize the Truth in the warnings that were given before Obamacare was passed, what does that mean for you? Do you have a heart that seeks to do God’s will, or your own? And, now that things are happening in the real world that show those warnings were the Truth, have your eyes been opened to the truth in those warnings? Have you changed your opinion about those who tried to warn us? Or about those who told us none of this would happen? Or do you still defend them and accept that these problems are the result of things that were out of their control? Do you think that they had good intentions and that good intentions are enough?
I only ask because I know that there was a time when my heart was blinding me to the Truth. I thought I wanted to do God’s will, but I didn’t. I kept rationalizing my will over God’s. However, when I started to read Scripture and started to seek God, and to beg Him to give me understanding and wisdom, I started to see the Truth. This is when I realized that our two-Party system is not what it appears, and that our nation is no longer the idealistic nation I had in my mind. It wasn’t until I truly sought to do God’s will and not my own that I started to see how wrong I had been. So I ask, if you fall for the deceptions in this world, should that be a warning sign that you may need to check your heart to make sure it is seeking to do God’s will and not your own?
I am not claiming qualification to judge you. I know better than to even think about thinking about that. But I also know enough to know that asking the question is done out of love and out of a will to lift you up. I ask that you take this post that way. But, if you do not, if you think I have an ulterior motive, then I ask that you re-read it.
[NOTE: I cited The Blaze in all my links. The Blaze is owned by Glenn Beck. I have come to trust him because he has proven that he is trying not to deliberately deceive people. If he makes a mistake, he confesses it publicly and then corrects it. But many people believe he is a hater, a racist and a lot of other things that simply are not true — as Mike Rowe just testified on his Face Book page. At the same time, Harry Reid — a person who we are told cares about everyone — he recently asked why they would compromise the Democrat political agenda just to save a child’s life. That statement would seem to belong to the person we are told Glenn Beck is, not the person we are told Reid is. That so many have fallen for this turning of reality on its head are precisely what I mean by needing a heart check. They do not recognize the Truth, and Christ tells us this is because they do not seek to do God’s will, but their own.]
