The Epiphany of our life – for many today is an Exposé when finally, the lights are coming on!
Have you ever experienced an epiphany?
Besides the primary meaning of “bringing to light” as in discovering the personal realty of The Divine, Merriam Webster dictionary defines epiphany as: “a sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something, or an intuitive grasp of reality through something like an event that is usually simple and striking.” https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/epiphany
For some of us as Christ-followers, our memorable epiphany might be the time when we woke up to the realization that Jesus Christ truly is The Creator, “without whom nothing was made that was made.” John spelled out Jesus as “the Word,” Who declared “let there be light” in the opening verses of his gospel in the Bible.
In an age of widespread disinformation and polarized opinions, how can honest, God-fearing people ever expect to see a positive transformation in society?
There’s a strong correlation between community transformation and the humble informed action of godly people in response to truth. The observation of Isaiah’s generation in Israel parallels what we see today, but we have one big difference. He said:
“Our courts oppose the righteous, and justice is nowhere to be found. Truth stumbles in the streets, and honesty has been outlawed. Yes, truth is gone, and anyone who renounces evil is attacked. The LORD looked and was displeased to find there was no justice. He was amazed to see that no one intervened to help the oppressed. So, he himself stepped in to save them with his strong arm, and his justice sustained him.”
Could you imagine how the enemy of humanity might possibly scheme to deceive the masses by employing professional institutions that were once trusted to be a friend?
If there exists one clearly understood fact about the devil, of which practically every true follower of Jesus is very aware, it’s his number one characteristic – he’s the master deceiver. Revelation 12:7 identifies that serpent of old as “Satan, who deceives the whole world.”
Can you imagine… tricking the whole world of humanity to almost universally believe in a lie?
Staring in the face of lifetime bondage, does choice still exist to gain knowledge of truth?
One of America’s prominent founding fathers was medical Dr. Benjamin Rush. He gave us an important statement about his view of medical or health freedom. Commenting on Dr Rush, a late 19th century medical doctor honored the memory of this great physician, noting that he proved himself to be a great champion of medical liberty. He urged that the Constitution of the United States should not only provide for religious freedom but also for medical freedom. Dr Rush, in his 18th century manner of speaking English, conveyed the idea that “Laws restricting the practice of the healing arts to one class of physicians and denying to others equal privileges, would constitute the Bastilles of our science.”
That means such laws would be like an over-throw of honest science and replaying the relics of despotism or vestiges of monarchy as with the time of the French Revolution. He clearly thought such actions would be wholly out of place in a republic. https://wafflesatnoon.com/benjamin-rush-quote/
If you think about it, there’s a particularly good reason why one of the most oft-repeated warnings of the Bible and Jesus Himself, is the familiar phrase, “do not be deceived.” Anyone who reads the Bible is familiar with the fact that the devil’s most glaring identity is “The Deceiver” (Rev 12:9), And his chief strategy to “steal, kill and destroy” (John 10:10) is the clever art of deception. It has now become widely recognized that those who routinely get their knowledge and understanding from main stream media, and those who listen to all the corruption that is there, are inevitably more likely to fall for their deception. And almost every statement that is made on those public platforms are laced with dishonest, misleading and downright destructive intentions. If anything has awakened millions of our peers to the reality of evil in our world, it is the blatant distortion of reality presented in today’s anti-Christ portals of news and entertainment.
What if one of your most trusted friends told you that you’re about to discover the cure for a serious crisis you’re worried about? Well, naturally, you’d have questions… all of us would.
What is the biggest positive outcome of the global crisis of 2020? There are many ways to think about the shockingly life-changing events and conditions of the past year. Whoever you talk to, one thing becomes really clear… and really fast. There’s a lot of confusion, misinformation, and deep anxiety about a lot of things touching practically every single person’s life in nearly every single part of the world … at least, where there’s a significant population of people. In terms of personal physical health, national governmental stability, moral corruption in business, science, and politics, or religious application of beliefs regarding just about anything, it’s becoming easier than ever to expose the biggest contrast in reality! What’s that?
As the Angel of the Lord told Joshua in Joshua 1:9 “Be strong and courageous” so, God is telling us this is a time to choose. And courage is rising in America to overcome the influence of ungodly secularism.
In times of relative peace and quiet, the virtue of courage is often unseen and little spoken of. But when the pressure is on; when the conflict of good and evil is raised for all to see; when the dangers and threats of evildoers are brazen and menacing, then courage arises in those who are empowered with personal knowledge and experience.
How can Christ-followers respond honestly and Biblically to the 2020 “Plandemic?” We are all awakening to realities most of us never dreamed were possible. But as we awaken, as believers, we look to the Bible for patterns of how God has dealt with His people in the past. And we learn more about how to trust him and act in obedience to Him rather than to the fearful things going on in the world.

Did you hear about the horrific Texas traffic accident involving over a hundred vehicles because of surprising glare ice on the road? A half dozen people died and over a hundred were injured, some with life debilitating injuries.
Now, if you had the knowledge that the road up ahead was so dangerous that it could cause the death of everyone going that way, wouldn’t you do everything in your power to stop everyone from rushing toward their destruction? Of course, you would. Who wouldn’t? That’s just common humanitarian consideration for our fellow man. You’d have good reason to question the ethics or sanity of anyone who wouldn’t do that, wouldn’t you?
