A Refuge of Lies vs. a Revolution of Truth
By David White
 
All Scripture references are New King James version.
 
      In his book1984, George Orwell wrote, “In a time of universal deceit—telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”
 
     Grieved over the backslidden state of his nation, the prophet Isaiah addressed the leaders and those who followed by boldly declaring, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord, you scornful men, who rule this people who are in Jerusalem, because you have said, ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol we are in agreement.  When the overflowing scourge passes through, it will not come to us, for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood we have hidden ourselves’” (Isaiah 28:14-15).
 
     Isaiah was calling for nothing less than a revolution in dealing with and delivering the people from falsehoods that had blinded them from seeing the obvious things that were separating them from their God.
 
Discerning the Righteous From the Wicked
 
     Those called to serve as priests of the Lord were given the responsibility to teach people the difference between the holy and the unholy, the clean and the unclean, with no regard for how controversial their doing so could become. This was so that God’s people could discern the difference between those who served God from those who merely served themselves.
 
     “And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. In controversy they shall stand as judges, and judge it according to My judgments” (see Ezekiel 44:23-24).

     Included below is a recent article by Rick Joyner titled, ‘Liberty or Slavery’, which gives an understanding of Marxism as well as the threat it presents to liberty.


Liberty or Slavery

(Understanding Marxism)

 

                                                                             by Rick Joyner  

 

     The Free Market thrives on freedom. The more it has the better it does. People thrive in freedom. The more freedom people have, the better they do, and the happier and more productive they become, a fact to which history is an overwhelming witness. Mankind was created to be free, and as we are told in II Corinthians 3:17, “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

 

     Marxism is the antithesis of freedom, and the source of the greatest oppression and slavery mankind has ever experienced. Under Marxism, the state is god and dictates everything everyone does. You go to school where the state tells you, study what they tell you to study, work at the job they tell you to, live where you are allowed to live, and can only have relationships you are allowed to have. It actually gets even worse than this, as the state tells you where you are allowed to go, what you are allowed to say, and even what you are allowed to think. Any deviation from what is allowed brings swift punishment, and even torture and execution.

 

     This is the history of Marxism—it turns every nation it takes over into a virtual prison where there is hardly anything the people can do without getting permission from an authority. This is why the Soviet Union had to put up “The Iron Curtain,” which was actually a prison wall to keep the people from escaping to freedom. The desire to get out was so great that multitudes gave their lives trying to escape.
