MORNINGTIME 2622
 
Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them; Deuteronomy 11:16. Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; A BLESSING, IF ye obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day: And A CURSE, IF ye will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known. Deuteronomy 11:26-28. To be deceived, or not deceived, is not like coming to a "Y" in the road with both choices looking equal and you have to choose one or the other. Not at all. It IS a straight road leading straight to the Lord and all His Blessings, with a small crooked side trail that leads off in a different direction. This trail looks mysterious and that's the attraction to it. "Where does this trail go, what's around the next corner, what will the end result be"? The straight road to the Lord is already known down in a person's spiritual DNA. It's going to cost you obedience to a higher Power and death to self. Not much "fun" there. Ah, but this little side path, this is full of mystery and intrigue, it looks like it could be a lot more "fun". THAT'S THE DECEPTION, to go from A Known GOoD Thing, to something mysterious. Deception, just like Truth, is a willing step by step operation that just keeps growing in Intensity. Truth begets more Truth, and deception begets more deception, ONE WILLING STEP AT A TIME. Either way, everyone starts with their eyes wide open as they walk along their chosen way. The problem is, the more you follow deception, the more work it takes to crush your conscience screaming at you "Wrong way, don't go here". Oh yes, you can become Cold to the Call of the Lord, but you'll have to work at it. But remember this, NO MATTER HOW DEEP YOU WALK INTO DECEPTION, CHRIST MADE, AND IS, THE WAY OF ESCAPE. Escape back  to Christ and His Way, and, Be Blessed.
