7 Reasons Why Iniquity Moves the Crowd and Truth Always Loses the Crowd

This is why artistic talent, oratory excellence, and big money stages will always outperform Truth in influencing masses and crowds:

1. God gives a strong delusion to those who don’t have a love for the truth. In other words, sending delusions and deceptions thru extremely talentedd and gifted people is Gods way of weeding out those that do not really love him for his truth.

2 Thessalonians 2
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2. Whenever Satan sees people that are willing to disobey God in favor of using their beauty talent and wisdom to promote themselves – he sees himself! He anoints them with deception. Satan anoints iniquity with merchandising and trafficking ability.

Ezekiel 28
15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created,
till iniquity was found in thee.
16 By the multitude of thy merchandise
they have filled the midst of thee with violence
, and thou hast sinned:
therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God:
and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub,
from the midst of the stones of fire.
17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty,
thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness:
I will cast thee to the ground,
I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities,
by the iniquity of thy traf
fick;
therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee,

3. People would love to be entertained with a nice singing or speaking voice instead of having to think or change their lives to obey Truth.

Ezekiel 33
30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that cometh forth from the Lord. 31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their covetousness. 32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy words, but they do them not . 33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.

4. America is culturally a type of revived Greco Roman empire where religious worship is based on oratory performance. Therefore great orators are worshipped, and seen as having the voice of God, not men.

Acts 12
21 And upon a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat upon his throne, and made an oration unto them. 22 And the people gave a shout, saying, It is the voice of a god, and not of a man. 23 And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

24 But the word of God grew and multiplied.

5. Clever rhetorical skills and oratory talent are very useful for supplanting and subverting the power of the Holy Spirit. This is why Apostle Paul was always contrasting his preaching with Greco-Roman style religion.

1 Corinthians 2
2 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: 5 that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

6. When the crowd becomes large, the biggest temptation is to become a hypocrite aka “play actor,” and to put on a mask, perform and play a role. That’s why when the crowd became large Jesus’s first warning was to avoid the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

Luke 12

1 In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. 3 Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops.

7. It’s Easy to find the broad way, many will find it. Few will find the narrow way.

Matthew 7
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

The Disciple of Christ’s Solution: Follow Jesus and Love the Truth, Make Disciples, not Fans. Seek Fruit, not Praise. Train the Few, Don’t Chase the Masses

3 John 1

4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

BUT I thought we have to reach the masses? Didn’t Jesus tell us to go out to the highways and byways and tell everyone good and bad to come in? (Matthew 22).

Yes, outreach is good. But please read all the way to the end of that parable in Matthew 22. The person that got in without a wedding garment on was cast out into outer darkness… Then Jesus said that many are called, but few are chosen.

The bible says that wisdom cries out in the streets (Proverbs 8). So yes, we must broadcast wisdom to the masses, but what’s more important is discipling the few and placing righteous garments on them.

And when you do reach out to the masses, cry out with wisdom and the Word of God only. Thats actually how you find out who is really ready to be discipled.

Watering down and corrupting, or rebranding and merchandising the message – to reach a wider audience –will work; but it’s the work of iniquity and it is not an option. It gets people in without their wedding garments on.
