Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Curtain

There is always a "man behind the curtain".  The Distractor. Listen to this. Look at that. Walk this way. Check this out. 

Behind the curtain (veil) is a false gospel. It will drug you.

"Excuse me. Does this smell like chloroform to you?"


The Word provides an easy fix. Don't look. Don't listen. Don't smell or taste of it. Accept no imitation. Caveat emptor.

Hebrews 12:2 (AMP) - "Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God."

Our Leader and Source of our faith. Cheap imitations are every bit as recognizeable as an Armani knock off.

Simply put, nothing compares to Jesus. Nothing the silver tongued devil spins is even close. However, shiny objects will have their way at times.

We will step over the wreckage on our way to glory.

Revelation 1:8 (AMP) - "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord God, He Who is and Who was and Who is to come, the Almighty (the Ruler of all)."

 The Source and Finisher. Beginning and the End.

And ALL points in between.

He is the ONLY Worthy One.

Simply look away from the competition. The Competition isn't just looking to grab an ear. It wants your everything. It wants to dry you out. It will suck the very spiritual marrow from you. 

That shiny object that has had your attention is never really in reach. It's fake. An illusion. Transitory. It moves faster than you. It will always be just a fingernail away from your reach. It's Brand X.

The seemingly minor and harmless dalliance will bring tragedy. It will be disguised as something good and will addict you. In the end it will cut your throat.

The Mighty Ruler of all delivers! Jesus NEVER fails!

Keepin' it Real,
