We Are Awake, Not Woke – Steve Martin

Sept. 17, 2021 Charlotte, North Carolina USA

Greetings to friends and family of Love For His People.

After I wrote the following message I needed a picture to go with this. When I checked my gallery of such, the cute puppy with the caption came up. It may fit exactly with what I say below.

As we continue to stand in the midst of all that the enemy of our soul presses on with all around us, be strong in the truth and don’t back down when you have the opportunity to share it. The nations need our resolute and committed truth.

Thank you for reading and even sharing this with others.

Ahava and shalom,
Steve Martin, Founder

We Are Awake, Not Woke

“Son of man, you live in the midst of the rebellious house, who have eyes to see but do not see, ears to hear but do not hear; for they are a rebellious house.” Ezekiel 12:2, NASB

Each generation has an opportunity to know truth, to seek truth, to walk in truth. But often what is spoken as the current “truth” is nothing more than a rehash of deceived thoughts that previous generations tried to bring forth, except these current ideas actually fall a level below that which came before.

It is as the old proverbial story of the frog in the pot of hot water, which as the heat continues to rise considers nothing is changing, when in fact, in time, he will be cooked to death if left in his ongoing situation. (Or maybe “he” was a “she”, but today could be anything “wokers” would choose.)

We who believe in the Bible must maintain the high standards, godly standards, and thus withstand what is being given as the latest standard.

We who believe in Almighty God must remain awake, and not become “woke” as others around us trumpet their ungodly realms of deceit and deception.

“…for you are all people who belong to the light, who belong to the day. We don’t belong to the night or to darkness, so let’s not be asleep, like the rest are; on the contrary, let us stay alert and sober. People who sleep, sleep at night; and people who get drunk, get drunk at night.1 Thessalonians 5:5-7, Complete Jewish Bible

In some ways I have no idea what all this “woke” stuff is about. But when I see the fruit of it, where they try to take away our God-given freedoms, dignity, ability to walk in righteousness and justice, it makes me cringe and reject that which is thrown out there for all to believe.

Though it is easily seen that one who is a boy is a “boy” and not a “girl” and should remain as such for every generation. Nor should there be any question as to what pronoun should be used in reference to them.

It simply is not right but deceitfully wrong for anything but this.

What God has created is meant to be as He meant it to be.

Learning to discern what is truth is the necessity of every believer. If we do not know what is truth, the foundational truth, in any given situation, then we will be as those also who accept every new idea as if it is the “latest and greatest” thing to come along. Deceived people cannot and will not ever be able to dictate and share truth.

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a person sows, this he will also reap.” Galatians 6:7, NASB

And again, the only way to not be deceived and walk in darkness is if you understand the written Word of God, seek to know His thoughts daily, and reject any words or actions that would come against the truth the Lord has given to us.

Each time an idea is presented, from whomever or wherever, we must judge it against what the Lord has said in order to give us understanding as to how we should act or react. Attempting to make any new concept fit into our life, in order to be accepted by those around us who do not serve the Lord, will only open the door to allow deception to come upon us in the same manner.

We will always be confronted for what we stand for. Everyday society will come at us for what we believe trying to tear us down to build themselves up and control our lives.

Stay awake! Be not woke but be awaken. Stand for truth and do not be overcome with the lies of the enemy. Don’t back down when confronted, but be bold and upright in your response.

Ahava and shalom,

Steve Martin, Love For His People founder
