Proverbs 14:15 (NKJV) “The simple believes every word, but the prudent considers well his steps.”
“nar·ra·tive| ˈnerədiv | noun a spoken or written account of connected events; a story.
• the narrated part or parts of a literary work, as distinct from dialogue
• the practice or art of telling stories.
• a representation of a particular situation or process in such a way as to reflect or conform to an overarching set of aims or values.
adjective- in the form of or concerned with narration.
ORIGIN late Middle English (as an adjective): from French narratif, -ive, from late Latin narrativus ‘telling a story’, from the verb narrare (see narrate).”
We’ve all watched the news in the last 5 years or so, but never has there been a MSM concerted effort to tell a story using the same word or words.
If you watch the news on CBS and then turn to NBC, has anyone noticed that they use the same script or words?
It’s not coincidence.
It’s a deliberate act to tell a story so that you would believe it and then repeat that same story to others when you have conversations with others.
It’s been said, if you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it.
Then there’s others that refuse to believe it. Or at best, pause the story and tell others that you’re skeptical about it. You then move into investigative mode and come to a reasonable conclusion that validates the story or refute the story.
The world is betting on you not to investigate. They want you to trust them that their information is the truth. But even then, you refuse to accept the narrative until you get to the truth. Then when you find the truth, you reject their narrative and warn others.
What is the measurement of a narrative?
Truth or lies is the measurement of any narrative.
The purpose of the lie is to deceive. Fact or fiction.
“War Of The Worlds.”
A radio show of a fictional occurrence was believed to be true of aliens invading the earth. So believable that the police were called. It gripped the audience. Finally, the truth came out that it was a fictional narrative and the truth calmed the fears of others.
Covid was a man made disease and “no crisis goes to waste.”
Off to the races did fallen man went with narratives, misinformation, lies, misunderstandings, mandates, and fear.
People don’t know what to believe.
Even true believers that possess the Bible.
Elijah was used by the Lord to settle the matter.
1 Kings 18:20-21 (NKJV) “So Ahab sent for all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together on Mount Carmel. And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word.”
When people have formed an opinion, the opinion must be challenged. The word “opinion” in this passage means “divided in mind.”
They were divided in their minds as to Who was God.
Baal or God.
Much like today.
The opinions of doctors, politicians, lawyers, employers, preachers, versus the Word of God.
Who do you trust?
We’re supposed to trust God over man but more people trust man over God.
So as they say in the narrative of Covid, “you need to be vaccinated because a vaccine is the best protection against Covid.”
But some of those that were vaccinated ended up getting Covid. So how does a vaccine become the “best protection” against Covid and I end up getting Covid?
It’s a fair question, isn’t it?
There’s a variety of answers to try to sell the narrative but we get a polio vaccine. Measles vaccine. Small Pox vaccine.
Its efficacy is proven, but over time. A lot of time so that you could develop the data so as to determine its efficacy. But with Covid, “warp speed” became a detriment and not a benefit.
In a rush to cure a disease, many received a disease that a vaccine is said to claim that you would be protected from.
And when people contracted Covid AFTER being vaccinated, the narrative shifted to- “If you’ve been vaccinated, should you get Covid, it won’t be as bad.”
But wait, you were never sick BEFORE you took the vaccine.
So what has this been all about?
The training of minds for the end times according to Revelation 13:13-18. Getting minds to comply to directives, orders, mandates, and guidances.
Remember Friday the 13th? 13 is always associated with disorder.
Then you look at Revelation 13:13-18.
Fallen man is using narratives to train man to become the very disorderly. So disorderly that it will be in perfect rebellion against God.
So before you believe a narrative, vet the narrative. Don’t be so quick to believe every word.
The quickness of your compliance may lead to long term disaster.
If Baal is god, follow him.
If God be God, follow Him.
Make up your mind and stop faltering between two opinions.
You can’t follow God and Baal at the same time.
