Healing the deaf, blind and lame
by Ken Pullen
Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017
I continually hear and read words spoken or written by the deaf, blind and lame blaming God for hurricanes, for disease, and asking questions on a recorded loop such as, “How could God allow __________ to happen?”
I read and hear over the past few years how it’s the republicans this, democrats that, whites that, blacks this and some people coming to the realization America is no longer the nation they always imagined it to be, asking questions again on a loop, “How did __________ happen?”
And the constant plea, especially in the after light of tragedy, “We must come together as one, we must set aside our differences and come together!”
Sadly, almost all the people asking such questions, shouting, screaming, moaning and wailing about the current state of our nation and its people are the millions, the tens and hundreds of millions of deaf, blind and lame in our country.
Always quick to point blame. Slow, or never taking responsibility or telling the full, true story of the how, why and when, and to who.
In the wake of a wealthy man who gambled tens upon tens of thousands of dollars away and due to the demons possessing him he took the evil action of murdering as of this writing 59 people and being responsible for the injuries of upwards of 500 to 600 more, as well as taking his own life it’s once again the gun that is at fault. “We need more laws!” “We need gun reform!”
No, people, we need spiritual reform.
No, people, we need our foundations restored and our schools, government, churches, institutions and families reformed.
But that will not happen. We’re already in the times in Scripture where men and women have turned from God to such a degree, so much unrighteousness and self within their hearts and minds that God has turned them over to reprobate minds.
The world defines “reprobate mind” as being “unprincipled” and then it also likes to apply a Calvinistic definition of predestined to eternal damnation, which is NOT Scriptural.
While there is predestination people fail to understand what that means.
Yes, predestination is mentioned in the Bible. Yes, the names of the saved were in the Book of Life in heaven even before God created the heavens and the earth as in Genesis.
But what is misunderstood is God did not say, “You will be saved and come to heaven, while you, you, and you will not and you three are going to hell for eternity.”
Each individual provided the ink to write their names in the Book of Life through faith in the shed blood of God’s Son, Jesus Christ the Lord.
We are living in Biblical times. We are living in many parts of Biblical prophecy currently and we are certainly living in Romans 1 at this time.
God’s Wrath against Sin
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Romans 1:18-32 — King James Version Holy Bible
God “gave them over to a reprobate mind” due to EACH INDIVIDUALS ACTION IN WHICH THEY REBELLED AGAINST GOD AND CHOSE UNRIGHTEOUSNESS AND WICKEDNESS OVER THE TRUTH OF GOD.
Simple as that. Clear as that.
Yet tens of millions, hundreds of millions walking about deaf, blind and lame continue to blame God and refuse to see it is they, each lost one, each deaf one, each blind one, each lame one that brings about through their sin and rebellion, their love of unrighteousness and wickedness the destruction, the pain, the woe — which is only going to INCREASE and not diminish.
It is never about coming together as one.
It is never about the anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-inerrant Word of God selfish, rebellious lyrics of the song “Imagine” written by John Lennon who once proclaimed the rock band he was in was more popular than Jesus — and sadly, while he raised the ire of many at the time he spoke the truth. At that time even cultural idols, idol worship of singers, musicians, film stars, TV personalities and sports hero’s — idol worship ran higher than did the worship of Christ and God in America. Matters have only gotten worse, much worse with the passage of time. We have turned away from God and Christ and our foundations all the more in a short span of 40, 50 years. Lennon’s song, which people to this day still use as their anthem rather than knowing and singing a hymn about the fear of the Lord and His grace, His mercy, His offer of salvation and to be healed from being deaf, blind and lame is one of the greatest anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-truth songs ever written. And it is idolized to this day by hundreds of millions;
Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
And then today, the country music performer who was on stage at the time of the mass shooting in Las Vegas, Jason Aldean wrote on social media:
“Over the last 24 hrs I have gone through lots of emotions. Scared, Anger, Heartache, Compassion and many others. I truely dont understand why a person would want to take the life of another. Something has changed in this country and in this world lately that is scary to see. This world is becoming the kind of place i am afraid to raise my children in. At the end of the day we arent Democrats or Republicans, Whites or Blacks, Men or Women. We are all humans and we are all Americans and its time to start acting like it and stand together as ONE! That is the only way we will ever get this Country to be better than it has ever been, but we have a long way to go and we have to start now. My heart aches for the Victims and their families of this Senseless act. I am so sorry for the hurt and pain everyone is feeling right now and there are no words i can say to to take that pain away. Just know u all are in my heart and my prayers as we all go through this together. Time to come together and stop the hate! #stopthehate #prayforlasvegas”
It is very understandable to be feeling great anguish and pain — heartache — in the aftermath, especially if you were the one on stage singing while the gunfire rained down into the throng before you, but Mr. Aldean is thinking, feeling, believing, responding on a PURELY WORLDLY understanding way to this tragedy.
Stop the hate?
How about stop the unrighteousness and wicked ways? How about stop the permissive, liberal anything goes attitudes? How about stop thinking men and women are the answer and allowing immorality and perversions and abominations to dominate our landscape and hearts and minds?
We are awash, drowning in sin, in unrighteousness, in wickedness as we murder babies, elevate, praise and honor immorality and sexual deviancy. We are a nation of idol worshippers. We are lax. We are selfish, We are irresponsible. We do not teach our children the foundations and truths of Scripture, God and Christ. Our so-called Christian churches are for the greater part the great falling away — apostate rife with unsound doctrine, false teachers and their false teachings, which Scripture tells us occurs right before the son of perdition, the son of Satan, the Antichrist appears.
Come together as ONE?
The constant recurring theme of the agenda of evil, the whisperings in the ears of the deaf, blind and lame by he who they serve — Satan — constantly telling them they are the power, they don’t need God! That the Bible is a myth and they are the truth and the way.
Yeah, that’s really working out isn’t it?
Without God, without Christ, without the Holy Spirit, without the inerrant living word of God all are deaf, blind and lame.
And everything — EVERY THING — is only going to grow worse. More unrighteous. More evil. Bigger, larger shootings, terrorism, storms, death, destruction and times.
And the deaf, blind and lame will shout out and blame God more and more while they deny Him, deny His very existence, deny His Son, Jesus Christ — except to use His name in vain — deny the Holy Spirit — deny the Holy Bible.
And the times will grow worse, oh, so much worse each passing day while the deaf, blind and lame refusing the truth of God, walking in unrighteousness continue to speak foolishness and lies, imagining themselves gods, imagining they can create a Utopia, a Paradise on earth of their own will and abilities when it is due to the very fact we had Paradise and turned from God and to Satan believing the devil over God our Father that all has unfolded and is yet to unfold!
Talk about being deaf, blind and lame!
So clear. So easy to see, hear, and understand. Yet the vast majority live daily deaf to the truth, blind to the truth, limping alone in their lameness of spirit and soul serving the angel of light rather than God the Father and Jesus Christ the Lord.
The millions, the tens, the hundreds of millions live each day deaf, blind and lame in spirit living lives of lies and refusing the truth and rightness, the righteousness of God yet these very same deaf, blind and lame will rush to embrace and worship he who is swiftly coming giving them the illusion of Utopia as he establishes the most oppressive and deadly time in world history. They will worship him, idolize him to such a degree they will take his name, his number upon their heads or hands and do everything he commands since they were given over to reprobate minds refusing the truth and evidence of God choosing unrighteousness and wickedness instead.
And what happened in Vegas?
Will not stay in Vegas.
The growing immorality, abomination, sin, unrighteousness and wickedness of men, women, and children spreads over all this nation and all this world like a coal black shadow removing all light and life.
