“He (i.e. “Christ”) shall set the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left.”
The left (i.e. liars and murderers) are the creators of “woke-ism.” And they deceivingly define their term as: “alert to injustice in society, especially racism.” - Oxford
And though that statement would be one faithful Christians could certainly participate in. The term does not describe the agenda. Far from it. Likewise the ANTIFA organization. We should be anti-fascism. But you see therein lies the deception. Those who participate in the ANTIFA agenda are themselves fascist. It’s the pharisee calling the faithful, pharisees. The equivalency of a church invoking the name of Christ on their assembly area void of faithful Christians and teachings as the agenda within. For instance you may have a church calling itself the “church of Christ.” And that we can certainly agree with. However once you step inside you find the “woke-ism” agenda in full bloom. All sorts of disorderly conduct and compromised deviations. They no longer teach the uniqueness of the church. The common salvation. The worship of spirit and truth. And so on. Matter of fact the agenda they hold is very anti-Christ. And so “woke-ism,” one infected by this virus, will become a racist claiming he’s fighting against racism. A disorder of the mind.
“Woke-ism” may be a fairly new title to our culture. But it’s an ancient problem. Even seen and recorded in inspired and secular history.
Matthew 15:1-14, Acts 18:12-13 (read),
The Pharisees, Scribes, and all their loyalist were “woke.” They thought it virtuous to dishonour their parents. They thought it “woke” to stone the prophets, behead the baptist, crucify the Christ, and martyr the Apostles. The Egyptian Pharaoh was “woke.” The Roman Cesar was “woke.” Woke-ism has been around for a long time. Woke-ism was the infection which made folks journey to the wilderness expecting a reed shaken in the wind.
When you find yourself evangelizing and exposing evil. And a fellow brother or sister chimes in to rebuke you publicly by saying “just stick to the gospel and stop pushing people away?” They’re infected by the woke left. They are defending sin and attacking their own kind. Symptoms of the infection. The woke pandemic. They need to stop their mouth from spewing words and infecting others, the mask. They need to social distance incase they infect others. And they need to be injected with a dose of Bible truth, the vaccine. And once they are all cured they can once again return to the church, the pulpit, the tasks.
The “woke-ness” ideology/worldview is birth from the left which makes willful dullards deceivingly believe enforcing their misguided opinions on all who disagree with their mandates and rules, to be evil wicked Neo nazi racists, phobics, and bigots. Un-compliant Conservatives needing to be put down. Canceled. Ostracized. Slandered. Fired. When the truth is, reality, they are the wicked racist. But you see they’ve perverted the narrative. What is good is now evil, and what is evil is now good. They hate individual accountability. They act on mob rules. Submission with force. Screaming the lie until we are bullied into compliance. These of course are liberals. Leftist. Progressives. Marxist. Fascist. Communist. And for most of us in the Western World, they are currently in control of everything around us. From the box of cereal you eat to the walk you take at the park. They are Government. Health care. Eduction. Transportation. Religion. Major corporations. Academic institutions. Media (i.e. cable, social, and streaming). They have been allowed to infiltrate every aspect of our lives. They tell us which words we can speak. Which places we can shop. Which locations we can visit. Which employment we can have. Which music, movies, news, and entertainment we can view. To criticize or become disobedient will result in punishment (i.e. fines, incarceration, etc). And they will not relent until the entire Country runs red with blood, chaos, division, war and ultimately captivity/bondage. They are behind organizations such as ANTIFA and BLM. And Bob Dylan the heathen was right when he said “you may serve the Devil. Or you may serve the Lord, but you’re going to serve somebody.” He got that from the Bible (Rom. 6:15-23).
Make no mistake, they are the enemy. And they hate us with a passion. Sadly, these have become our family members, neighbours, co-workers, once friends. We love them and pray for them, but we don’t allow them to destroy us. We are authorized to defend ourselves and the land God has blessed us with.
The “woke-ness” ilk 5 point agenda is very simple to understand. We’ve repeatedly brought them to your attention.
In every branch of influence they currently hold, this is the agenda behind their actions. All of it. And they present it to the blind masses, masquerading as angels of light.
This is the reasoning behind racist deception such as “critical race theory” being brainwashed upon our youth in academic institutions. And it is also the thriving force behind the mishandling of COVID19 and the communist mandates which have absolutely nothing to do with science, medicine, or a virus. You don’t have 12 police officers manhandle, chokehold, physically assault a law abiding citizen because he or she has a mask exemption, and think that has to do with keeping us safe from a virus. If so, you’ve been infected by woke-ism and are now part of the greater problem. This happened because you stopped taking proper precautions. You withdrew yourself from the faithful local congregation where the truth is proclaimed. You withdrew yourself from the Bible. God. And now void of love you’ve welcomed mental disorder, delusional, woke-ism.
If you think telling our youth that we are nothing but a racist Country and every person who has a lighter shade of skin pigmentation is somehow inherently guilty of racism? You’re infected by woke-ism.
If you think there’s absolutely nothing wrong with politically voting for baby murdering perverts because the other politician is guilty of being a fornicator? You’re infected by woke-ism.
If you sympathize with the LGBTQ steamroller agenda? You’re infected by woke-ism.
If you think abortion is health care and a women’s choice? You’re infected by woke-ism.
You agree with modern left feminism? You’re infected.
You think Romans 13 teaches us to be democrats submissive to mandates which compromise and violate the doctrine of Christ? You’re infected.
You think guns are the problem, and not the motive of the shooter? You’re infected.
You hate the freedom we’ve been blessed to enjoy for decades? You’re infected.
You’re foaming at the mouth with bitter hate. All caught up in your uncontrolled emotions, allowing me to live rent free in your mind, giving a thumbs down to this podcast session? You’re infected.
You feel the need to call us all sorts of names and persecute us because we speak the truth? You’re infected.
And perhaps some out there are seeking a remedy from their “woke” infections? There is a cure. I too was once brainwashed by the left.
There is a remedy. It’s called Repentance. A change of thought, behaviour, practice, language, direction in life. Begin to allow reality a chance to operate on your mind. Open the Bible and begin to read in Matthew. Read Matthew through Acts for staters. Investigate the literature with an honest motive. Believe the truth. And obey the gospel. Remain faithful to Christ. And in turn share the good news. Study the Bible with all who seek. Expose evil. Remain informed and capable of discerning right from wrong. And with time you will heal from woke-ism and the left’s hold on your life.
“9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. eNeither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor 2homosexuals, nor 3sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were fsome of you. gBut you were washed, but you were 4sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.” - 1 Cor. 6:9-11
