Deceit and Judgement

A false witness will not go unpunished,
and whoever pours out lies will not go free.
A false witness will not go unpunished,
and whoever pours out lies will perish.
Proverbs 19:5,9

One of the many negative things that can be attributed to postmodernism is that it paved the way for deceit to spread like fire in dry grass. Today it is difficult to determine when a man is telling the truth or is spreading a lie. Many now emulate the satanic Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister of the Nazi government who said “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” This seems to be the fundamental communication strategy of totalitarian governments, which seek to maintain with lies the power achieved by force and cunning, and unfortunately for many with great success. Today we can also see how people have lost their honor and how a man’s word is worthless. Commitments are broken and testimony under oath is broken without the slightest trace of remorse. Judicial mechanisms in place to punish these violations of commitment and truth are ignored at the convenience of those in power.

The promise of the Word of God which can not be broken and will be fulfilled without fail, is that all these people who enjoy and profit from using deceit and falsehood will be brought to the punishment they deserve. Divine justice will be ruthless in judging those who made a business of lying to their own advantage. In that day, it will be too late for these deceivers to repent of the conduct with which for years they did great harm to their neighbors. Their fate will be to be thrown into the place where “their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.” Have you been deceived or cheated by someone in whom you’ve placed your trust? Let God take care of him. Have you been hurt by deceit used with prejudice? God will also take care of that. Let us put our hope in the justice who is to come without fail when God decides it is time. Let us bring our burdens to the Lord Jesus and take his yoke which is easy and light. Only to God be the glory!
