Indoctrination: Spirit of Deep Sleep (Slumber) - pt 3

Isaiah 29:9-10  "Stay yourselves, and wonder; cry ye out, and cry: they are drunken, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. For the LORD hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. "

deep sleep = H8639. tardêmâh (tar-day-maw'); From H7290; a lethargy or (by implication) trance: - deep sleep. H7290. râdam (raw-dam'); A primitive root; to stun, that is, stupefy (with sleep or death): - (be fast a-, be in a deep, cast into a dead, that) sleep (-er, -eth).

The "spirit of deep sleep" is a figure of speech or figurative language.  Don't think of it in the sense of a fable, where there's an angelic being named, Deep Sleep, because there isn't one.  The spirit of deep sleep comes from indoctrination and following the traditions of men.  GOD even provides an example for us in verse 13, the "precepts of men".  Our FATHER doesn't go around zapping people into a trance or deep sleep.  They do it to themselves, becoming stupefied through indoctrination and the precepts, or traditions, of men.  Those who are respecters of persons believe the words of men, and their systems, over GOD'S WORD.

Isaiah 29:11-12  "And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned."

And so the spiritually blind lead the spiritually blind.  With their narrow minds dialed in on respect of persons, they bring the book to "one that is learned", with credentials from men, but he cannot understand it.  Then they take the book to another, e.g. a wealthy man of stature, and he cannot read or understand it, either.  Indoctrination does not discriminate by wealth, status or title.  In fact, indoctrination tends to run deeper the higher you climb the ladders within the systems of men.  The indoctrinated say they cannot read the book because it's sealed, while the people who carry the TRUTH are invisible to them.  The Book is sealed to the unlearned and indoctrinated mind.  But the Book, GOD'S WORD, is the Owner's Manual of all manuals; it's the Manual of LIFE.

The one that is learned is the cookie cutter pastor, indoctrinated and cloned by the church system.  He teaches what was taught to him, along with fables and traditions, and his only claim to a fancy title, salary and pension, is teaching what the system allows.  What you'll hear from him are sermons on salvation, but it will be the same material over and over again, for twenty years.  There's nothing wrong with the salvation message, it is the very foundation of CHRISTianity.  But in order to mature, you need to be weaned and move forward into the Meat of GOD'S WORD.

You might not think there's anything wrong, because all of the other Christians you know are still milk sucking babies.  They become reprobate soldiers of the WORD, recruits that never made it out of boot camp, and can't differentiate between friend and foe.  Getting stuck in milk sucking phase too long will allow ample room and opportunity for the enemy to spoon feed you with leavened doctrines.  And so is the state of the church system of men today.  If you never get into depth of understanding the full plan of GOD, you won't be able to discern between high levels of good and evil.  Because the plan of the evil one will be way over your head.  Eventually, double-mindedness will have you calling evil good and good evil.

Hebrews 5:12  "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of GOD; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat."

Hebrews 5:13  "For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe."

Hebrews 5:14  "But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." 
Isaiah 29:13  "Wherefore the LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept [systems, traditions, doctrines] of men:"

Reprobate believers, or pretend Christians, profess by mouth only to be Christians.  They become Christian-like at Sunday service and when the Bible is open and read to them, usually a couple of verses here and there.  A lot of talk and pretending goes on and they are adept with standing up and sitting down on cue, and saying "amen" in sync.  The rest of the week is spent chasing after the things and cares of this world.  They allow the traditions of men and indoctrination to turn their hearts and minds away from GOD. 

James 1:21-22  "Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."

The enemy laughs his head off because the masses are drunken with illusions, lies and indoctrination.  The systems, traditions and doctrines of men leave them spiritually naked and running around sharing fables.  Indoctrination intensifies double-mindedness and the people say one thing but do another, supported by their coinciding, yet contradictory beliefs.  The foolish and blind judge a book by its cover, yet never actually read it.  That's why GOD'S WORD teaches us to not be a respecter of men and to not judge by the outward appearance, because they are traits of the carnal mind.

Romans 8:6-8  "For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is Life and Peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against GOD: for it is not subject to the law of GOD, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please GOD."  

For example, if you judge by the outward appearance and you're a respecter of persons, you're operating in carnal/flesh mode.  In doing so, you cannot please the FATHER, because the carnal mind is enmity against GOD.  Think of animals, since they are in the flesh as well, and how they can feel jealousy, loneliness, excitement, etc.  Many animals take good care of their young and experience emotions such as grief, joy and empathy.  When you watch a Hollywood movie, your emotions can be triggered.  You might laugh, cry and curse, all within the same hour, but did it really do anything for your spirit?  No, in most cases.  Point being, even animals and the wicked know how to love their own and feel emotions.  When you're in the spirit, you'll want to take things up a notch, showing compassion towards people outside of your small circle of family and friends.  It's not difficult to grasp.  A spiritually minded person is in CHRIST, and CHRIST in him, having repented in Jesus' name, for this is the path to finding true peace of mind.

Matthew 5:46  "For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?"

Luke 6:32  "For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them."
Luke 6:33  "And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same."

Luke 6:34  "And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again."

Luke 6:35  "But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil."

Luke 6:36  "Be ye therefore merciful, as your FATHER also is merciful."

Luke 6:37  "Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:"

Luke 6:38  "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."

Luke 11:13  "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly FATHER give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?"

If you're going to give, try and give your best, not your scraps or leftovers, while expecting nothing in return.  Try it sometime and you'll get a taste of what it's like to be truly rich.  You give your scraps to dogs, not men.  Treat others as you want to be treated.  If you see an elderly person that needs help carrying groceries, imagine the individual to be your own grandmother/father, and what you'd want someone in your shoes to do.  Give the elderly person a hand, because one day it will be you that's old.  The homeless man... picture him as your dad, brother or son.  If it's cold outside, you might want to give him your jacket, or a buy him a warm meal, even if he's an alcoholic.  None of us simple humans are perfect.  If you were so perfect and righteous, you wouldn't need CHRIST, but you do, so stop judging others.  GOD is Judge and he doesn't need our help in getting it done.  You need GOD.  He doesn't need you or me, but He does love us and sent His Son, JESUS CHRIST (YAHVEH'S "Savior" the Anointed One).

Do the work that GOD has for you to do and His blessings will pour on high in your life.  Don't take record of the good things that you do for others, instead, take record of the good things others have done for you.  And you'll find, without fail, that the first one to thank on a daily basis is ALMIGHTY GOD.  You'll also gain more appreciation for your real friends and family.  There are many things that people understand but rarely do.  Lots of folks talk but be the person that can back it up.  Instead of trying to accumulate as many material things as possible, try owning as little as you can.  Be more minimalist and less of a hoarder.

Luke 12:15  "And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth."

covetousness = G4124. pleonexia (pleh-on-ex-ee'-ah); From G4123; avarice, that is, (by implication) fraudulency, extortion: - covetous (-ness) practices, greediness. G4123. pleonektēs (pleh-on-ek'-tace); From G4119 and G2192; holding (desiring) more, that is, eager for gain (avaricious, hence a defrauder): - covetous (Strong's Concordance).

avarice = extreme greed for material wealth.

When wealth/material accumulation and worldly comfort is the end game, or main desire, for a man, he lives his life without purpose and meaning.  Those material objects become his idols and his face is turned away from GOD.  Thinking he doesn't need the CREATOR, the man turns his worship to the creation.

Luke 12:16  "And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:"

When Jesus speaks, we listen, absorb and meditate on his teachings.  When your crops flourish from the former and latter rain, given by GOD, give Him the credit, honor and thanks.

Luke 12:17  "And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?"

This foolish, wealthy man "thought within himself" and never sought GOD for guidance and counsel.  He doesn't understand stewardship and that man owns nothing, for if he did, he would be able to carry his possessions out of this world (death).  Man is not an owner, but a trustee, because GOD is the inalienable Owner of all.

Luke 12:18  "And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods."

He has no room in his carnal mind for contentment, therefore, his barns (plural) weren't good enough for him.  He didn't bother to find out if someone else was down on their luck and could use a little help.  Take note, this parable doesn't say that the man had ill-gotten gains.  Greed and the love of money are evil enough.

Luke 12:19  "And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry."

This man places his confidence, trust and security in himself and temporal things.  So convinced of his worldly wisdom and the strength/security of his goods, he tells himself that he can take it "easy" from now on with a new retirement nest.  Planning for the future and being financially responsible are good traits, but don't put yourself into bondage over material gain or have your life be controlled by greed.  He plans his life according the ways of this world, as if he were a little god, knowing exactly what tomorrow brings.  Yet, his planning is shortsighted and fallible.

Luke 12:20  "But GOD said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?"

Luke 12:21  "So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward GOD.

The rich man is actually poor.  The world is backwards, supposing gain is godliness.  Those folks around you that are arrogant and proud in their worldly riches... don't ever be envious of them.  Put your trust and confidence in GOD.  Jesus CHRIST is Lord and Savior.

CHRIST is KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS; every knee shall bow to Him, yet He owned few material possessions.  Our FATHER owns everything and the Earth is His footstool.  Jesus is GOD (look at the Scripture verses - every knee shall bow), so He created everything and he owns it all, even our souls.  Yet, He was humble, giving, selfless and perfect.  The FATHER, SON AND HOLY SPIRIT, the Trinity, is GOD in three separate offices.  Just like you can be a father to your son and a son to your father.  The love that you have for your son comes from your spirit, your heart.

Isaiah  45:22  "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am GOD, and there is none else."

Isaiah 45:23  "I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear."

Phillipians 2:10  "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

Phillipians 2:11  "And that every tongue should confess that Jesus CHRIST is Lord, to the glory of GOD the FATHER."

Indoctrination, pride and respecter of persons produce a potent cocktail for spiritual blindness and famine.  The strong concoction will keep people from getting fed with the Bread of Life and Living Water - Jesus CHRIST.
Isaiah 3:1  "For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water,"

Isa 3:2  "The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient,"

Isa 3:3  "The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator."

Isa 3:4  "And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them"

Isa 3:5  "And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable."

Your nations will have leaders that are childish and immature.  In seeking counsel from the wicked, the babes that appear to rule get stringed like puppets by the hidden rulers of the synagogue of satan.  Nearly everyone turns to the wrong individuals for guidance and Truth.  The people will be oppressed via indoctrination and enslavement via the four hidden dynasties - monetary system/commerce; politics/government; education/media and religion - tentacles of the serpent used to gain control of the world.
