Stranglehold of Acquiesence
If the foundational and fundamental building block in our lives in those who profess to be Christian is that “God is Love,” then where and how does all of the other shit fit into that indisputable reality? Either God is full of crap and a full blown liar or, there is someone who continues to infiltrate and unknowingly influences a (Christian) person through the ‘true lies’ they have accepted as their reality.
I know in my life and relationship with the Lord, these buried and undetectable lies that continue to try and influence, run, and rule me, are being exposed, causing them to surface and in so doing causing great consternation within my thinking, but I am beginning to see them in a whole new light.
It is as easy as in a learned behaviour to simply acquiesce to the inbreed lies that continue to superimpose a distorted and twisted way of seeing things and in the process keeping one a spiritual quadriplegic. I am beginning to see these lies for what they are and whose they are that have and continue in measure to define me, my worth, value, and my identity!
The covert and obscure workings of the Matrix of religion are not easily detectable in the Christian’s life, why, they have been groomed from their first birth in the natural wherein the lies they were told even in the womb are the basis and only reference point they know for certain. Anything contrary to this deeply inured fusion of true lies within them is seen as a personal assault which must be aborted rapidly before there is a system over load.
In becoming re-birthed, these embedded ingrained true lies we have believed and in my case acquiesced to, were not and are not instantly vaporized. Ergo, the required effort on our part which is all part and parcel of Christ working in us to both, ‘will and do’ of His good pleasure, to continue the very necessary ongoing transformation required by being renewed in the spirit of our mind (soul).
I want to say this regarding the internal struggle and battle I face of these inbreed learned behaviour patterns in light of God being Love, if others have faced this and more and have somehow been removed, extricated from it and not pointed to the power of His grace being the impetus for their deliverance, then what the hell is there any need to look to Him being my I AM????
