Put anything rotten outside in warm weather and you’ll have flies before you know it. Flies are attracted to garbage, just as accusers are attracted to lies. When one rotten morsel is tossed into your path, you know the flies will follow. Flies multiply as the garbage piles up, and lies multiply as rotten lies are piled up.
The Word of God states that spiritual things are discerned by the spiritual. A person in right standing with God knows the truth.
But one who lives a lifestyle of lies cannot discern the truth. Worse yet, liars believe liars. They believe a lie is the truth. Pack several liars together and you have a whole lot of accusations toward those following the truth. It is no wonder that so many businesses and organizations are falling into judgment, simply because they believe liars.
But the liar in his or her heart will say, “So what. Nothing will happen to me.” Just like the mass of Israelites who murmured against God in the wilderness, spreading lies among those called out of the darkness of Egypt. Well, those liars were swallowed up when the ground opened up. I know many people will say: “But..that doesn’t happen today.” Look around you, judgment happens…besides, if it doesn’t happen here, it will happen in God’s own timing.
But this isn’t so much about judgment- which is God’s job, not mine. It is more about those lies spreading like flies. It is more about being aware that a person who has lied to you two or three times will probably lie to you again, and many are so deluded, they actually believe the lies they tell. If you are a child of God, beware…there’s a whole lot of rotten stench out there. Watch where you walk…
