What We Can Learn From History
The prophet Isaiah lived and ministered approximately 750 years before Christ during a time similar to what we are experiencing today. There was corruption in political leaders and in the religions of his day as well immorality was rampant in society. He stated Isa 59:14 …truth is fallen in the streets. Meaning that truth was not listened to or followed by most. Truth and those who stand for truth are despised and mocked in a myriad of ways.
It is unbelievable to me how we see similar government manipulation, propoganda and tactics that do not make sense however we all go on a submit and follow along while shaking our head. Note the end of the article. Kitty declares that if her country men would have known what was the end game of the Hitler agenda they would have fought to the last man however when they realized what was going on it was too late. The real battle is spiritual. It is evil against good. Evil is prevailing in our time and the day is coming when it will be too late to do anything about it. The apostle 2000 years ago warned us of the battle we are in and evil agendas are carried out in evil governments. Most of the time the leaders who are doing it do not even know or realize how they are being used. History has revealed this over and over.
Prior to WW2 there was a growing sense of evil in Germany and now Austria by some of the population who were tuned in to what was going on but most did not until it was too late. They were blindly allowing an evil to take over their country and destroy them. Adolph Hitler was slowly manipulating the government and the media to gain power and popularity through lies and deception over media and press. When they took over power in Austria this lady was a young school age girl at the time of the takeover. She shares her story. I want you to note how the power and influence of evil takes over a country. Her mother had decided that what they were teaching in the school was government propaganda and wrong so she took her daughter Kitty out of the public school system and enrolled her in a private Catholic school. This is her story continued from part #1.
The scripture states where our battle against evil originates.
Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Note that evil works from and through evil authorities and is always with lies and carefully orchestrated deception over a mass of people. We can look back at the lessons of history and learn from them or ignore them.
Truth in our day seems harder and harder to find. It seems everyone wants to spin a narrative in order to get a hearing even at the expense of stretching the truth. I remember being told when I was a young man that a half-truth is a lie. It seems both the political left and the political right and the media use this method of telling half-truths or amplifying the aspect of a half-truth in order to spin the narrative they want to convince the readers or listening audience to side with. They all have an agenda but it is not the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me God.
