Your Own Spiritual GPS

The young First Century church sprouted in the fertile soil of hope, grew in glory, and produced with power. Now, consider how that hope, glory, and power relates to you. Unfortunately many have lost hope today. There is a basic explanation as to why. 

Nearing the end of World War II the allied forces chased the German Nazi forces out of France. As the Nazis retreated, they changed road signs to confuse the allies. For example, at a crossroad if a town was to the right they would change the sign to indicate it was to the left. At great expense the allies soon learned the road signs couldn’t be trusted.

The forces of our enemy, that is the devil, have changed spiritual road signs in our world. As a result of following these wrong directions, many have lost hope. “There is a way that seems right to a man, But the end is the way of death” (Proverbs 14: 12). This truth is so important it is repeated in Prov. 16: 25.

Charles Darwin was a deceptive sign-changer. Writing in the late 19th Century he changed the sign giving direction to our origin. He was not an originator. The French philosophers and English utilitarians have paved the way. He simply couched the idea of evolution in scientific language and thereby has misled millions.

Karl Marx was a deceptive sign-changer. He took the evolutionary concept from the realm of animal origins and applied the same principle to social development. Thus, professing Communism to be the superior form of government, he set in motion class wars which today rage all over the world.

Sigmund Freud applied Darwin’s concepts to the world or morality. He changed the sign to indicate meaning and fulfillment is to be found in uninhibited sexual expression and experimentation, giving birth to the “New Morality.” Freud claimed “man’s animal nature is ineradicable” and justified what the Bible declares to be sexual immorality. This has resulted in pre and extra marital sex, the dissolution of families, and rampant abortion. 

Today proponents of CRT have changed the road sign of brotherly love and in doing so have race, against race using the tactic used by Karl Marx to divide Russia and overthrow the government. CRT advocates have changed the language to make it deceptive and divisive of races.

The Lord, knowing society has the ability to misdirect His people, has given us supernatural GPSes. The Bible changes not, therefore establish your road signs of life by its directions. 

The Holy Spirit is a constant directive leading us on the paths of righteousness. He will never lead us to do anything that is not Scriptural. 

“The Lord said to his people: “You are standing at the crossroads. So consider your path. Ask where the old, reliable paths are. Ask where the path is that leads to blessing and follow it. If you do, you will find rest for your souls.” Jeremiah 6: 16
