Beware Pied Pipers

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3 ESV

“Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.”

Prior to the world and national events of 2020, which have shaken the people of this earth to the very core, at least here in America things were fairly peaceful. Our lives here in America were still mostly normal. Most people were still going about their lives as usual, working their jobs, going to school, planning their futures, paying their bills, and attending their church gatherings. And, then everything changed suddenly, and without warning.

And, now our world has been turned upside down, and it is getting worse each day as time progresses. And, many people are afraid and/or they are angry or confused or distraught over what is going on, not knowing what is going to happen next.

Many are deceived, too – hypnotized by the media, and following the “pied piper” (1). He is a symbol of one who offers deceptive enticement, who makes irresponsible assurances, and who attracts followers after himself via his charismatic personality and his mind manipulation techniques.

So, who are these “pied pipers” among us? They are pastors of institutional churches. They are people in higher up positions within church denominations. And, they are TV evangelists, and those who call themselves prophets, apostles, and teachers of the word of God. They aren’t all pied pipers, mind you, but many of them are.

These “pied pipers” are also TV and internet news anchor people, and those in authority above them. And, they are leaders within our governments. They are also former leaders of governments, and CEOs of corporations, and people of power, wealth and influence in the business world and within institutional Christianity.

And, they have been, and many still are leading the people to their deaths by their deceptive allurements and their irresponsible promises, and by their charismatic and charming personalities and mind manipulation techniques. And, many of the people of America, at least, have been captivated by them and are following after these wolves in sheep’s clothing by the droves.

For, these “pied pipers” were giving the people messages of peace, and they still are, and they are telling those who profess faith in Jesus Christ, or who are considering belief in Jesus, that faith in Jesus means their sins are forgiven, they are now guaranteed heaven, but that they don’t have to turn from their lifestyles of sin and follow Jesus in obedience to his commands.

So, they have told them that if they just “believe” in Jesus that nothing bad will happen to them, for not only can they now continue living in sin without guilt, and can they be guaranteed heaven, but Jesus will remove them from the earth before anything gets bad, so that they won’t have to suffer. And, so they are completely unprepared for what we are now facing.

And, then you have the “pied pipers” who are now convincing people of all sorts of things to make them fearful, and to deceive them, because their goal is to lead them to follow after the beast New World Order and one world religion. And, so they have thrown our nation (America) and the world into chaos and turmoil so that they can come to us with a preconceived solution for our “problem” which they initiated. And, the solution is for us all to bow to the beast and to unify as one people of the entire world.

1 Thessalonians 5:4-8 ESV

“But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief. For you are all children of light, children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, are drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and for a helmet the hope of salvation.”

Nonetheless, for those of us who are walking by faith in Jesus Christ according to the Spirit, and no longer according to our flesh, these times should not be a surprise to us. They should not be taking us out. It doesn’t mean that we don’t grieve our present circumstances, but it means we are not surprised by them. We are not overtaken by them. We were ready, knowing that these days were coming, and where they were coming from, too.

So, when we see what is being presented to us in the news, we are not taking everything we see at face value, but we are testing everything we hear and everything we read and everything we see, because Satan is a liar and a deceiver, and he can fake anything, and I mean anything!

He can convince you that people are dying who didn’t die, or that things are happening that are not really happening. For, he has access to Hollywood, too. So, some of these videos you are being presented with in the news could be fake. And, the people you see in some of the videos could be paid actors just playing their roles in a sinister play. And, this is not something new. This has been going on for many years.

For, this is how they manipulate your minds so that you fall into their traps, for they want you angry. They want you afraid. They want you hating people and fighting people and wanting to see people dead. They want chaos and anarchy, for this is how they will take us over. So, don’t play into their hands. Pray!!! Ask the Lord to show you what is real and what is fake.

And, get away from so much social media and news so that you can spend that time with the Lord and so that you can hear him tell you what’s happening. And, don’t be living in secretive sin or you are not going to be able to hear the Lord. You have to be walking in purity with the Lord if you want to hear him clearly, so that you can have your minds and your hearts open to the truth of what is really going on right now in our nations.

And, on another note, I believe with all my heart that the Lord closed the doors to our institutional churches because they were a stench in his nostrils with all their hypocrisies and false teachings and worldliness and sexual immorality. For, they were leading God’s people astray with their messages of “peace and safety,” and they were leading them to their deaths.

So, now is the opportunity to reconnect with the Lord and with his true church, which is not a building or a business or a denomination of men but is the people of God with Jesus Christ as their only Lord. And, now is the time to hear from our Lord, and to follow his lead in what we are to do and how we are to respond to the events going on all around us. For, now is the time for us, as the people of God of America to wake up and to hear our Lord.

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 ESV

“For God has not destined us for wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us so that whether we are awake or asleep we might live with him. Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”

It is true that God has not destined us for his wrath, for us to be judged as unbelievers, and for us to spend eternity in the fires of hell. But this doesn’t mean that everyone who says “Lord, Lord” is headed for heaven. For many will be told one day, “Depart from me! I never knew you!”

But the thing of it here is that they thought they knew Jesus and that he knew them, so they were surprised when they found out that they were wrong. So, don’t be deceived by the clever lies of those with the “peace and safety” messages but who lead you to believe that you can continue living in sin and it won’t matter to God. It does matter for eternity!

Watch out for the “pied pipers” of this world with their smooth tongues who are leading you astray with their many lies. But again, the only way you are going to be discerning about them is if you are living a life which is separate from the world and unto the Lord and if you are bathing your minds and your hearts with the truths of God’s holy word instead of with the ungodly messages of this sinful world.

So, please pray that the Lord will open your hearts to the truth.

Eternal Father, Strong to Save

William Whiting

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm does bind the restless wave,
Who bids the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Savior, whose almighty word
The winds and waves submissive heard,
Who walked upon the foaming deep,
And calm amid the rage did sleep;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Holy Spirit, who did brood
Upon the waters dark and rude,
And bid their angry tumult cease,
And give for wild confusion peace;
O hear us when we cry to Thee
For those in peril on the sea.

O Trinity of love and pow’r,
Your children shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire, and foe,
Protect them where-so-e’er they go;
Thus, evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

    • Hi Annie! Yes, many generations have felt that way, but never before in our history have we experienced such global unification as we are now seeing with regard to the virus and with regard to the demonstrations. We have never had the technology we now possess in most people’s hands, on their own person. But, yes, it all comes down to making sure that we don’t fall into the devil’s traps and that we cling to the Lord Jesus. Thank you so much for sharing! ❤
