Repost: Rise of the Villains

Alert: Busy Week readying for car show. Can’t take time to write. Just Re-Runs. Business as Usual here in Calvarytempleland.

Scareee! Torn between Gotham and Black Mass, both trailers give chills. Pastor – you are operating in the same spirit. No rules. Bend or break them if there are.

Law unto yourself. Using the foibles/failures of your cronies to shield yourself from view. Your ways of walking in the light mimic the one whom God warns us of – that angel of light (Satan), who comes to deceive. Jesus is the true light and the way and the truth. And His light shines through your darkness, exposing the tactics of treachery you are using to try the hearts and faith of the saints of God.

You are happy when you make God’s people miserable. You are calm when you make them weep. You are pressing into your own destruction as you are planning the downfall of those you should be caring for. But hey, you’re gonna do your thing. Because (sigh), that’s who you are. Bully for you.

But God says, “Oh that I had in the wilderness a lodging place of wayfaring men; that I might leave my people, and go from them! for they be all adulterers, an assembly of treacherous men. And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the Lord. Take ye heed every one of his neighbour, and trust ye not in any brother: for every brother will utterly supplant, and every neighbour will walk with slanders. And they will deceive every one his neighbour, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity. Thine habitation is in the midst of deceit; through deceit they refuse to know me, saith the Lord. Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will melt them, and try them; for how shall I do for the daughter of my people? Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbour with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait. Shall I not visit them for these things? saith the Lord: shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this” (Jeremiah 9:2-9). “Her prophets are light and treacherous persons: her priests have polluted the sanctuary, they have done violence to the law” (Zephaniah 3:4). “I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word” (Psalm 119:158).
