“Hidden in plain sight”, why that name? Our world is full of lies and the prince of this world and this age is the Father of Lies. Those who achieve so-called “greatness”–not all but perhaps most–according to God’s word are given their positions of power as a trade for Dragon worship. Revelation 12:4 speaks of the beast–the world system of power–whose power comes from the Dragon.
The world system runs on lies and enslaves us when we accept the lies. The power is great and creates a contract with these principalities, partly because deep down, we know they are lies! Or at least we should have known, because they don’t hide what they are doing. The biggest lies are easily discoverable if you decide you want to find them.
We want to believe the lies because they appeal to our pride and our general laziness. Additionally, the liars spin tales of danger and fear imminent world-ending plagues and crises that leave us in a highly suggestible state so that we are ready to believe anyone who claims to have a way to protect us.
So we accept lies even though it would take very little effort to expose them, because the alternative–or so we believe–is unacceptable. That we are in a hostile vast universe that is out to kill us and there is no one we can trust.
There is a great truth, though, that fortifies our courage to face any other exposed lie.
His Word has never failed me. Though the Serpent lied and told us that God was holding back and had not given us everything we need. But
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
The amazing thing is when we finally submit to the truth, it’s like waking up from a dream and you see something that has in been in front of you all along and you just didn’t notice.
