“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.“
How surprising is it that a Winston Churchill quote leads off an article about the last days?
Churchill–who was a higher-up on the mystery of iniquity‘s food chain and who spent his entire LIFE focused on the things that are in the world–most probably meant his quote to 1- be a sort of inside joke; and, 2- be taken completely differently than it will be addressed here.
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
1- From time to time, those who are situated HIGHLY in the mystery of iniquity (and who know how the world REALLY works) make remarks which are passed off as asides or comments meant to amuse or even, jokes.
BUT, those ‘in the know’ KNOW what such remarks REALLY are referring to.
And, such remarks bring amusement to others of the same sort because they are a sort of ‘inside joke.’
2- What Churchill REALLY meant by his remark was: “Sometimes men unwittingly come across details which make one or more of our stories IMPOSSIBLE to believe. But, most men just ‘forget’ such details because, to remember such things would make their comfortable lives inconveniently UNCOMFORTABLE. Also, because knowing the truth very frequently demands that one change the way he conducts his life–and the VAST majority do NOT want to change.”
In other words, his fellow workers in iniquity should not worry if someone stumbles upon the truth because such a person will most likely NOT want to know the truth and will cover it up.
During the life of MOST people, bits and pieces of the truth will be discovered: ‘stumbled upon’ if you will.
SOME will just ‘put it out of their mind’ with the exclamation: “That doesn’t make any sense!”
MOST will just ignore the truth and settle for the stories they are told about the world and the way the world works.
For the very FEW who pay attention to what they have discovered: the world does not treat them so well.
Crackpot, conspiracy theorist, crank, eccentric, screwball, maniac, “He’s got a screw loose somewhere.”: all are labels the world attaches to those who pay too close attention to the truth AND those who, instead of just forgetting about it, investigate their discoveries a little deeper.
As experience (and Winston Churchill) confirm, there are too many lies for Satan and his workers of iniquity to cover up–particularly during the last days.
BUT, they really should NOT be too worried.
After all, most men–upon discovering a bit of truth–will “pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.“
HAS the reader EVER discovered some bit of knowledge which is contrary to what he has been told?
HAS the reader then searched for MORE of this type of information OR has the reader just forgotten about it?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
