Hype


No matter the time or age, the enemy will try to distract from and hide the truth with hype. Hype is nothing more than smoke and mirrors, twisted words, deflections and spin to confuse. Hype is not new. It has been around since the Garden of Eden. That tricky serpent used hype to deceive Eve way back then. He knew just what to say and how to say it. The truth was twisted and so eloquently covered up and packaged into a lie that was believable. Just think about it. Eve was in the Garden of Eden with all its beauty and love but still the devil found a way to create a lie so believable he tricked even her.

Fast forward to the time of Jesus. The hype then was how Jesus, the very Son of God, would disrupt the status quo and harm the order of the world as the Jews knew it. The truth was right in front of them! God himself spoke to them and taught them and loved them but they did not see through the hype. You know the rest of the story.

Today, in the day and age of social media, the devil with his hype is having a field day. It is as though the serpent from the garden is right in front of the eyes of every human constantly. Still disguised, and with smoke and mirrors beyond measure, the enemy clouds the minds, hearts and souls of the people. 

Don't be fooled by hype and lies. Be thoughtful and still. Ask the Lord to give you eyes that see the truth and can help you to discern past the deception and made up spin so you will know the way to act in opposition of the enemy.


“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness." Matthew 23:27-28
