Impostors and you. Yes, you! – See this | AWAYION BEAUTY

Hi, Friends!

Imposters, yes, you have come across them — or you are one (I hope not). And yes, this post is apart of my “and you” Inner Beauty series.

Are imposters promoted in society? Well, have you seen “deep fakes”  — with millions of views —  on YouTube? Or, have you seen men pretending to be women — and they are not 6th century B.C. actors in an ancient Greek comedy/tragedy play (psst… we are in the 21st century)? Or, have you witnessed the attempted destruction of motherhood — as well as the definition by the wicked, eh?

Feeling psychologically tormented?

So how do you counter an imposter?

In this post, discover how to counter a spiritual or physical imposter. Because every girl in Christ should be as wise as a serpent.

Super Awesome Side Note: Before we start, understand we will not claim contested truths. And we will refrain from falling into the trap of “teaching man-made ideas as commands from the Creator.”

Out of respect for believers, we will simply acknowledge the multiplicity of views on this subject (the keyword is “acknowledge” and not agree). So, always do further research.

READ THIS SLOWLY: This topic approaches theories in psychology and can be perceived as promotion of humanismthat is not the intent. The point is for you to recognize demonic activity disguised within psychological terms. 

Super Psst… the big secret I’ve been hinting around on social media for a few months now – is revealed… (it’s why I have been MIA for a bit…). Read on after this post for the juicy details.

*Disclaimer: These tips could be helpful. Especially if you are a believer in Christ. Always do further research. The sources for this or any post do not equal a full endorsement of any ministry or evangelist’s personal views by Awayion.com.***

TL:DR A quick post glance:

  1. An imposter is what now… ?
  2. Physical imposters
  3. Spiritual imposters

Sound juicy? Okay, Ladies. Let’s start.

1. An imposter is what now… ?

According to Merriam Webster.com an imposter is “one that assumes false identity or title for the purpose of deception.” (Imposter, 2022).

Now we have our definition of an imposter — lets explore The Living Word and today’s society for examples and countermeasures.

2. Physical imposters

Impostors

The purpose of this post is obvious, not based on presumption or speculation. Or to condemn — because that role is filled by our Creator — only He can condemn justly. That said, the behavior of an imposter shows a lost condition.

Imposters, like those who gaslight — believe the vast mass of the people are oblivious and gullible. And so will believe a lie which is repeated, regardless of how obvious may be the fundamental facts to the contrary (Knuth, 1946). They ignore the moral laws of God (YHWH) (especially Universal Law & Natural Law).

That said, sexual imposters — now celebrated in pockets of secular American society — are being promoted as a “social norm” via public figures. At that, the affect on the masses, as well as the countermeasures, are best explained by an academic poster — in an recent online town-hall setting below:

“It is psychological torture to place depraved absurd individuals into positions formally respected because of the prowess of the officeholders. This torture is used to create the psychosis of the tortured the acceptance of the absurd is one of the final stages of breaking an individual or a nations free will… It is time to comprehend the situation as it is presented rather than how we wish it to be… It is coming time that we legally and lawfully reassert our dominion granted by God over these sycophants of depravity.” — via an online town-hall poster.

That being said, it appears one’s lost condition can affect a nation. This is not a new phenomena. Did you know cautionary tales on imposters exist — in the Bible? No? Okay, let’s look at what happened to King Herod:

Now Herod was very angry with the people of Tyre and Sidon, and they convened before him. Having secured the support of Blastus, the king’s chamberlain, they asked for peace, because their region depended on the king’s country for food. On the appointed day, Herod donned his royal robes, sat on his throne, and addressed the people. And they began to shout, “This is the voice of a god, not a man!”

Immediately, because Herod did not give glory to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.

But the word of God continued to spread and multiply. — Acts 12:20-24

The nation’s people claimed King Herod to be a god — and he believed he was a god. At that, Herod’s stroll on “imposter lane” resulted in instant righteous judgement from our Heavenly Father. For YHWH alone is the lawful God and there is no other.

That being said, seems as if the countermeasure to a physical imposter is application of God’s Supreme Law, eh?

Research Acts 12:20-24, Isaiah 5:20, Psalm 94:21, Proverbs 17:15, 1 Peter 5:8, James 4:7

3. Spiritual imposters

Apostle Paul saw spiritual imposters — in person — whose behavior is obvious; thus, he called them out. That said, believers are called to expose darkness, but I urge you use wisdom before you call someone out publically.

Be careful of using gossip to accuse others of being spiritual imposters — especially if you do not personally know their “heart condition” with Christ. You risk severe rebuke from our Creator.

Right now, vast amounts of believers are outraged by pastors who they believe deceived them. Via dancing around immorality issues for years (because of cowardice) — as well as promotion of mass deception during c-19 event. There are believers who are infuriated by pastors who promoted witchcraft during c-19 and/or denied the “power to heal.” One of many powers (aka “these signs shall follow those who believe”) Messiah Yeshua (aka Christ Jesus of Nazareth) gave his followers.

Now, could Apostle Paul call these referenced pastors “spiritual imposters”? Did perceived compromising of the full gospel of Christ result in a financial gain for these pastors? Did pastors seek to appease man at the cost of offending our Creator? Does Paul give countermeasures for dealing with spiritual imposters (aka imitators of God)? Hmm? Let’s see what Paul says on imitators of God:

For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure, or greedy person (that is, an idolater), has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things the wrath of God is coming on the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light, for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth. Test and prove what pleases the Lord. — Ephesians 5:5-10

Tough, eh? I think the above verses are self-explanatory — and can help you discern truth.

Paul provides countermeasures for dealing with spiritual imposters — which are, “let no one deceive you with empty words” & “do not be partakers with them.” Simple, eh?

Now is redemption possible for spiritual imposters (aka imitators of God)? Of course, but the imposter must acknowledge his sin and repent.

Research Ephesians 5:5-10
