Has satan blinded so many?
Monday January 20th, 2003

Scripture tells us that many are and will be blinded. They will be blinded to the truth of salvation through Christ Jesus, and to the truth of other things as well. That many will be blinded into thinking that the murder of babies in the womb is nothing more than ridding ones own body of a mass of unwanted dead tissue. Blinded to the fact that if it isn't alive, why does it have to be killed. The simplicity of understanding that it is a baby in the womb and not a mass of tissue is not lost on the Saved, but seems to defy the mind and intellect of the unsaved.

Another example of how easily and completely some are blinded is how readily so many are to accept the so called anti-war protesters as people really protesting war and ones who just want peace. It would seem that they are blind to the fact that it was not us that declared war, it was not us that provoked retaliation by a blind sided attack, it was not us who funded thugs to steal four planes and use them as flying missiles killing over three thousand people in a matter of hours. No, it was the enemy, an enemy that we are now in the process of hunting down and destroying.

You see, to those who think, those without blinders on, what happened to the USA on September 11th, 2001, was an act of war. What we are doing now is simply responding to that attack as only a super power can. For we could have simply taken and turned all of our enemies into a nuclear waste land about twenty minutes after the second plane hit the second tower. But, because we have the power and the ability to do that, we also have the ability to give our enemies a chance to surrender and apologize. If they choose to continue this war, we will now win it, and if they decide that they are unwilling to change, surrender and apologize, then let their blood be upon their own heads. For as the President has so aptly stated, we are running out of patience.

Before I give you some examples of how you can see if you are blinded by satan, let me first give you Scripture so that you'll understand the horrors of being blinded. And who does the blinding.

He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart; that they should not see with their eyes, nor understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them. (John 12:40) The he in John 12:40 that Jesus is referring to is satan.

What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded {blinded: or, hardened} (Romans 11:7) The election here refers to those who are Saved, the rest refers to those who are not.

But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ. (2Corinthians 3:14) Here Paul is telling the Corinthians that God has allowed satan to blind many so that they do not understand that Christ hanging on the cross opened the way for all that will accept Him as God to enter into the companionship of God.

In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. (2Corinthians 4:4) The god of this world is of course satan.

But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes. (1John 2:11) But, the self proclaimed Christian who hates the true Christian is under the control of satan and walks in satan's ways not knowing where he goes and is going, for satan has blinded him.

How do you know if satan is blinding you? Well, let me ask you a few questions.

When you hear people claiming that we are attacking Iraq for oil, do you believe them even for a minute? When you hear protesters shouting no war as if the US is the one starting the war, do you even for a minute believe them? Do you think to yourself that they have every right as patriotic men and women citizens to show their disdain for our possible preemptive strike on Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and maybe one or two others? When you hear the likes of the nightly news anchors making accusations that we are a racist country, do you shake your head in agreement?

If you said yes to any of the above, you have been blinded to the truth by satan!

And how does one become unblinded? How does one see the Light and the Truth? By going to the Lord in prayer and then reading and studying your Bible.

Doubt that you need God's help in understanding His Holy word? Ok, go to First and Second Thessolonians and tell me what chapters 4&5 mean in First Thessolonians and chapter 2 means in Second Thessolonians. Tell me who let's. Tell me how long Paul is really saying it takes God to do what God will do and when. Yes, when. What happens that God does this thing?

In closing let me say this, better yet let me ask this. How could the USA be a racist country? who are our sports heroes? Who is Bill Cosby and how popular is he? Who has the highest rated televison show on TV? What other white country has a minority in a position of Condi Rice? Collin Powell? Clarence Thomas?

The Lord be with you all and may He lead our young men and women who are about to teach the rest of the world to leave us alone, to Him. Amen.

God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
