“…While God has “all power,” and can use any manner of persuasion… He chooses to persuade us with the “power of His Love…”

Image result for caricature of man with "power."The Illusion of Power… Probably the most successful person ever to perpetuate the ILLUSION of POWER was….Hitler. 

As Hitler began his quest for power…of course… he had no power, no strength… but rather…the gift of ORATORY, which he used to promote Germanism, anti-Semitism, and anti-communism.  He could excite a crowd to do his bidding, and used this phenomenon to harness a nation of proud but common people and transposed them into puppets to go about bucking Europe to its knees.  His illusionary skills propelled him into the Chancellorship of Germany, and then, in 1933…dictatorship, and then… WWII.  The rest is history.

Don’t underestimate the Power of Illusion.  If one is indoctrinated enough, he gives up his free-will, and ability to think logically.  America Beware!  No man can have power, unless, we as citizens allow it.  Too often, it is not the voting citizen who allows the Illusion of Power to transform into reality, but it’s the “non-voting-citizen”…Those that belong to the Apathy Movement.

Mere men of little consequence become powerful czars because we citizens give it to them on a silver platter…as a gift.  They are elected, or appointed…. By default. We have only ourselves to blame.  We don’t seem to care whose tail we kiss.

We are told in…Galatians 6:7-8  Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

And, just so we know the source of all powerLuke 1:37 – For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.

While God has “all power,” and can use any manner of persuasion… He chooses to persuade us with the “power of His Love,”

Psalm 136:12…with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for his steadfast love endures forever; Job 9:4 – He is wise in heart and mighty in strength—who has hardened himself against him, and succeeded?       …Blessings…cjlb…4/11/16
