The Greeks’ decade-long siege of Troy is drawing to a close. The cunning Odysseus has hit upon a plan to subvert the Trojans’ defenses. The Greeks build a giant wooden horse and then pretend to sail away, leaving the horse at the gates of Troy as an apparent offering to the goddess Athena. The Trojans, believing the gift will make their city impregnable, take it within the city gates.
But it is a trick. Odysseus and his men are hidden inside the hollow horse and they emerge during the night to open the gates and let in the Greek army, who have returned to take the city. The Trojans don’t get a chance to learn from their mistake; the Greeks sack the city and massacre its inhabitants.
The lesson of the story, is that we should not let down our defenses when an enemy offers us “ it’s version of Truth” however nicely packaged. Today, that counsel is as useful as ever, but today’s tricksters are in Religion, Political Arena, Economy, Media-Internet, Health Etc and their Trojan horses are not wooden statues but Teachings of Men, Hidden agendas, traditions,schemes, that have been interwoven with truth. For example , members who are part of Religion “don’t see” it. They Believe their individual religion it’s all truth, and lies are merely viewed as mistakes waiting to be corrected from up above. So the delusion continues . This Trojan Horse is powerful. The one planted it was Satan! His minions are really wolves within, Paul called them out as Superfine Apostles, ones in leadership positions and there everywhere.
That’s The bitter truth . If there is any good to come out of this, it is that The Real Truth is increasingly been made aware of these types of covert activities. Perhaps more to the point, victims who wake up are now more willing to expose the lie.
And now, just like the Trojans thousands of years ago, People or the Sheep are learning the hard way that sometimes a “gift” is better left unopened and Returned to Sender. - - J Corbett #truth #jesus #fitfam #beauty #god #greece #faith #healthy #inspire #happy #blessed #preach #gift #spiritual #love #joy #christian #bible #fit #horse #film #good #motivation #positive #holyspirit #run #prayer #jw #fitness #free - 12 hours ago
