PART I: Discernmentsome call it Extra Sensory Perception (ESP)



by Joseph Earnest  March 5, 2012


Newscast Media HOUSTON, Texas Some call it a premonition others intuition or sixth sense, while others refer to it as a gut feeling, and some may call it extra sensory perception (ESP) or remote viewing; others may refer to is as foresight, telepathy or the paranormal; while this journalist refers to it as discernment.  This is the ability to accurately predict an event that is yet to occur, or accurately read through a situation.  Discernment has also to do with accurately judging character, without having personal knowledge of someone.  A simplified term for discernment is insight.


There are those who say knowledge and wisdom are the key to leading an effective life. Knowledge is the accumulation of facts, while wisdom is being able to interpret those facts and apply them appropriately in life.  Yet even more important than knowledge and wisdom is discernment. This gives someone an advantage in life, because a person with discernment is hard to fool.  King Solomon said, "The thoughts of a person are as deep as water in a well, but someone with discernment can easily draw them out."


When a person with discernment asks a question, he or she is not looking for informationthat person simply wants to verify Truth.  One can recognize discernment being applied by law enforcement officers and also by judges.  We always read or hear about a police officer stopping someone on a "routine traffic stop" only to find the vehicle filled with drugs, or the driver is a wanted fugitive.  


Why, you may ask, does that happen frequently.  The answer is because police officers are trained to look for certain cues.  They see things the rest of the people overlook.  They can read a person just by observing that person's mannerisms and look in the eyes.  Discernment, unlike wisdom and knowledge, cannot be acquired by attending a weekend seminar, or reading about it in library or listening to tapes and CDs about it.  It is acquired through experience.  One has to be very, very observant with a keen eye.


In the old days, some kings also acted as judges. A true story is told of a man who had a naturally violent nature and was impetuous. He presented himself before the King of France, King Francois I, to complain about an injustice.  Affected by the king's countenance and the respectful manner of the courtiers, the very place he found himself made a powerful impression on this man. He mechanically lowered his eyelids, his rough voice softened, as he presented his petition humbly; one would have thought him as gentle as the courtiers.  However, using discernment, Francois I knew how to accurately read people, and discovered in the lowered eyes, still burning with somber fire, in the strained facial muscles and the compressed lips, that this man was not as gentle as he portrayed himself.


This man followed the king to Pavia, where both of them were captured and locked up in the same prison in Madrid.  Francois I's majesty no longer made an impression on this man; he grew familiar with the king who was the object of his respect. One day when pulling off the king's boots, and pulling them off badlythe king, embittered by his misfortune became angry.  This man in retaliation told the king where to go, and threw his boots out the window. This was confirmation to Francois that he had accurately read the man on the first day he presented himself to the king.


As for judges, they have the ability to frame questions in a certain way in order to verify the truth.  They already have the facts of the case which include exhibits and everything on the record, so it is obvious that Truth is what they are looking for and are supposed to be looking for.


I know this from observation when I watched a certain witness testify on the stand. In America, court proceedings are open to the general public, who are allowed to attend as observers, as long as they don't disrupt the proceedings.  One doesn't even have to be a journalist or an American to observe how the courts work, even a tourist can attend them. As long as you sit in the section reserved for the general public and keep your mouth shut, you'll be fine in most American courtroomsfederal or state.


On one particular day, as a journalist, I observed a witness raise her right hand and swear to tell the truth.  Under oath she started answering questions from her attorney.  As the questioning continued, the judge interrupted and turned to the witness.  We didn't know what to expect from this judge because the attorneys seemed to be able to extract free-flowing answers from the witness.


The testimony seemed flawless.  All this time the court reporter was typing every word that was being uttered from both the attorneys and their witness. When the judge interrupted the line of questioning, all of us who were in the courtroom waited in eager anticipation to hear what the judge wanted to say to this witness on the stand.  FIND OUT WHAT THE JUDGE DID IN PART II>>
