The only way one learns the intricacies of the ways of deceivers is by directly submitting oneself to the experience, while maintaining the stronghold of Truth
Do not disclose to those who operate in deception and lies and shape shifting that you see them. The disclosure is a need for arrogance – to be right on the part of the truth sayer and only brings on attack, repulsion and reproach.
Check for truth, to look at the motivations and the actions of the person. Are the motivations pure and do the actions match the words.
The deceiver maintains control of the flow so as to take time for strategy and to look for vulnerability. The truth sayer take takes space for contemplation, perspective and to get closer to God for direction, strength and wisdom.
As the deceiver goes further deeper into the deception in a frenzied need to win, out do, out play- to restore arrogance, the truth sayer only avenue is to get closer to God, to deepen the channel of righteousness. The deceiver will only increase in the attack as they become frustrated, this creates fear and threat to the Truth sayer. If the truth sayer drops into the reaction as opposed to building strength in God, the deceiver will gain a stronghold over the person.
If the truth sayer stays connected to the light and deepens into the light the deceive will lose the stronghold.
This spiritual warfare is dangerous and brings out rage, contempt and irrationality in the deceiver, as they drop into the awareness of themselves, the veil of justification is pulled back and they are left in the pool of their deception.
They eat themselves and are left to look like fools. The very thing they have prided themselves on being able to create in others. The arrogance of deception creating a feeling that they are smarter, more skilled and pulling people to their own vulnerabilities, so they in effect eat themselves through the power of weakness and inferiority rather than the deceivers own ways.
Some people will not tolerate such emotional honesty in communication. They would rather defend their dishonesty on the grounds that it might hurt others. Therefore, having rationalized their phoniness into nobility, they settle for superficial relationships. ~ unknown author
It is the responsibility of intellectuals to speak the Truth and expose lies.
~ Noam Chomsky
A great deal of skill may sometimes be required in order to be a successful liar, and a successful liar may sometimes have remarkable talents and abilities, such as shrewdness, cleverness, imagination, ingenuity, originality, resourcefulness, astuteness, adroitness, deftness, agility, boldness, daring, and audacity.
However, a successful liar may also have many undesirable traits, such as dishonesty, deviousness, infidelity, insincerity, irresponsibility, untrustworthiness, and unreliability.
Liars believe their own lies, that is what makes them look so convincing, one must check and recheck the facts.
When we fail to put the love of God first, we are easily deceived by crafty men, who profess a great love of humanity, while advocating programs that are not of the Lord.
- you need to stay prayed up—if you let your guard down, the enemy will win over you.
b. Sometimes you must die to the flesh to strengthen the spirit.
c. The weaker you are in the flesh, the stronger you will be in the Spirit.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one [Satan]. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests (Eph. 6:13-18a).
defensive weapons of our warfare – the girdle of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace and the helmet of salvation. These pieces of armor are to defend us from Satan’s fiery arsenal. But, we also need offensive weapons to defeat the enemy – the sword of the Spirit – the Word of God and the prayer of the Spirit.
