Spiritual Whistleblowersby Van Robison
We all know that whistleblowers are
people who expose light on government cover-ups, or on
anything in life that they are knowledgeable about,
because they feel it needs to be exposed. People who
have a conscience and who want no part in concealing
truth, have often come forward to expose lies,
corruption and dastardly deeds. The obvious danger in
exposing truth is that the powers of darkness often
times will malign the whistleblower, or even
assassinate the messenger. It is amazing the lengths
that darkness will go, to spin a spider's web of
deceit in order to have their way. In the end they
always, always lose, because they exit this life with
total loss of power, control and money. Unless there
is eternal life for each individual, the only winners
in life are those to whom Jesus Christ gives life--all
others are self deceived in a world of their own self
Throughout history, whistleblowers have had their character assassinated, been tortured, put in dungeons and prisons, and martyred as being "evil." Whistleblowers are cast to the public as being less than intelligent human beings and frequently ridiculed, laughed at and maligned as if they are somewhat kooks who could not possibly know the truth. We live in a world where frequently truth is proclaimed as a lie, and lies are proclaimed as truth. Talk show hosts on television are notorious for belittling challenges to the status quo, and to humiliating publicly those who challenge whatever the "news" sources espouse as truth. Thousands of years ago, the prophet Isaiah stated this in Isaiah 5:20 "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter", and verse 23 "Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him." 2 Timothy 3:13 "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived."
There were many whistleblowers in the Old Testament and they were called "prophets." Many whistleblowers in the Old Testament were martyred, as Jesus Christ says in Matthew 23:31 "Wherefore you are witnesses unto yourselves, that you are the children of them, which killed the prophets." The mentality of power mongers, people controllers, and lusters of money, resources, land, buildings and all things of a material nature, is ever with mankind. Human nature is no different today than at any other time in human history. From the time Cain killed Abel as recorded early on in human history, there have always been killers of the innocent. If the blood of the innocent could be bottled in the geographical areas of the oceans, the oceans would overflow with that blood (I speak in symbolic terms).
Jesus Christ was the greatest Whistleblower the world has ever known, and to this day the world is overrun with character assassins who malign the character of Jesus Christ, and who attempt to make the world believe that Jesus Christ was a "myth." Christians are victimized by deceivers and human lords who want power, control and free money. Truth is often a rare quality because liars deceive, and the world is full of liars.
People who watch television news and movies, and who think that these sources are truth conveyors, are very deceived human beings. There is some truth from news sources, and perhaps some movies, but there is also a great deal of propaganda, and anyone who digs deep enough will not go far before they realize that the world is drowning in lies, deception and propaganda. Money, control and power are key elements behind much of life on earth. It would behoove any person who is seeking to understand truth to dig deep about every issue in life, including human governments, wars, orthodox medical practices, education of children, politics, history, Bible "infallibility", vaccinations, mind control drugs, psychiatry, pharmaceutical drugs, the so-called "justice" system, the prison system, the money and banking system of the world, and even whether the "moon landings" of the 1960's and 1970's were real or faked, and for which many sources challenge as to validity.
The nature of human governments is one that exists in a dark and secret world of espionage, spying, clandestine operations, deception, trickery, fronts, false flags, undercover operations and all supposedly for "security." Doing dastardly deeds and blaming others who had no part in such deeds, is as old as human nature, and is a clever means of deceiving others. The so-called war on "terror" is among one of the most key issues that any thinking person should dig deep for real answers, because those who have the most power are the ones who frequently abuse the most. "Right" is not necessarily on the side of human power. The official version of such things as what happened in Waco, the "Heavens Gate Suicide", the Oklahoma Murray Building, the Jonestown Peoples Temple "suicide", and many other highly visible public events, should all be questioned and looked at from perspectives that are not "status quo."
Exposure of dark and evil deeds by light is the one thing in life that evil hates and abhors. Evil will go to fanatical extremes to deceive and proclaim innocence. Anyone who thinks it through will know that if those who produce professional quality movies can cause people to believe lies by false images and by false documentation, then the world can also be deceived about many things in life. There are powers and sources that infiltrate. Churches and religions are infiltrated. Governments are infiltrated. Nations are infiltrated. Businesses are infiltrated.
Life itself is infiltrated by endless deceptions for purposes of money and control. It is deception when some people adorn themselves in the clothing attire of another group of people and walk among them, because they speak their language and feign to be one of them, when they are not, but their motive is to spy. This is real life, and yet millions of human beings have no clue these types of things happen. It is deception when a famous personality is "cloned" by a look alike, who is imitating the real person, and making the public believe a lie. It is deception to make a speech and proclaim it is from a certain personality or source, when that voice is nothing more than propaganda for political cause and not the person being imitated.
When former President John F. Kennedy of the U.S. was assassinated, there was a flood of books that hit the market place, and some of those books were no doubt published with intent to sidetrack the public from the truth. As often happens, a number of people were also assassinated (often made to look like accidents or suicide), who were too knowledgeable about various details surrounding Kennedy's death. It is very difficult to know the real truth about many issues because of the web of deceit that surrounds many of these events. No doubt, some of the books that came on the market are very likely written by clandestine sources such as the CIA, who use spurious names to hide their true identity.
Secret organizations of nations the world over work in a world of lies and deceptions that the common person would have no clue about, unless people read books about such organizations as the former Russian KGB, the U.S. CIA, the Israeli Mossad, the British Secret Service, the Chinese Secret Service and of other government groups. James Bond of 007 fame was a notorious British agent, and in the movies, a lot of underhanded doings are revealed that very likely parallel the real world. Killing people within one's own nation, and blaming a foreign source is a tactic of deceit and it happens. It would be impossible to know all of the secret workings of human minds bent on manipulation, power and control, plotted behind closed doors. God however is not fooled and all the actions of clandestine evil are known to the Creator of all life.
Knowing human nature, both from life's experiences and from reading the Bible over and over, I would think that Christians ought to be the best spiritual discerners on earth, and yet in life, it seems that Christians are very much hoodwinked on many issues. Christians are led around like a fish with a hook in its lip, by "leaders" who themselves are frequently believers in false doctrines and teachings. Most Christians have no problem knowing that cult groups are very deluded human beings, but at the same time, they are often unable to spiritually discern wolves in their own midst.
Spiritual whistleblowers are frowned upon by those who can't see, and by those who love their power, control and free flowing money. False prophets, pastors, scribes, priests and deceivers--hate being exposed as frauds. Jesus Christ exposed the fraud of man-made traditions in the name of God, which cost Him His life on the cross of crucifixion. We are told that most of the original disciples of Jesus Christ were also martyred for being whistleblowers and proclaiming the truth. Many human beings have been sent to their graves early in life for being truth tellers and shedding light upon darkness.
There are no doubt many "spiritual" leaders today, who come in the name of Jesus Christ, who rail upon anyone who is a whistleblower that challenges their false authority, power, control, man-made traditions and money-making "Christian" empire. If anyone thinks it is not so, then I challenge anyone to confront any one of the famous celebrity television ministry personalities about their "power", control, tithing doctrine, their false authority, and their empire building and see what happens. Others have tried it, and were sent packing.
Jesus Christ is the number one Whistleblower of all of life, and thankfully He is the real LIGHT of the world, without which the world drowns in its own darkness. You "think" the "Bible" is "infallible and inerrant", and if you believe that--who told you that it is? Jesus did not. How do you know, but what many things in the Bible are not accurate recordings of truth in history or teachings? We believe in Jesus Christ by faith, but did Jesus ever ask anyone to believe in "the Bible" by faith? No, He did not. He referred to scriptures that cannot be broken and must be fulfilled, and that is because what He referred to was indeed the truth, but aside from that, how does anyone including "scholars" and "scribes" know that the Bible is 100% infallible and inerrant? The truth is they don't and neither do you. Whistleblowers challenge the status quo and when the comfort zone is shaken, many people hate it. It is a certainty that the Holy Spirit is not deceived, although very likely all human beings are, in some ways and on different issues.
