We Need To Tell Each Other The Truth – In Love-God’s Truth!

“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”-Galatians 4:16

In Galatians 4:16, Paul is speaking to the Galatians. But he might as well be speaking to America.

Sadly, we have arrived to a place in our country in which people do not want to hear God’s Truths. Our nation has “itchy” ears. Many want to do as they wish and do, but not as God commands.

And many become angry when God’s Truths are spoken. They don’t want to be reminded; and when they are reminded, they feel guilty! And they should, for they ARE guilty of continuing and embracing their disobedience towards God’s Commands.

But the truth is, if we love someone, than we must share the truth-with love- with them. And Truth, by its’ very nature, has only ONE version. God’s version!

Jesus commanded us to:

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” – Matthew 22:37-40

If we love one another ,we need to be honest with one another!

Shepherds Must Feed Their Flocks God’s Truth!

“And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?” – Ezekiel 34:1-2

So what do these two verses really mean?

Jesus is our Shepherd. He took care of us, taught us (fed us), led us Home to Heaven… This warning was to the shepherds that took care of themselves, rather than their flocks.

There are priests and ministers like that today. They wish to fill their Houses of Worship and raise money. They are too cowardly to speak God’s Truth. They want the government to accept them and to be “popular” in society. And so they speak what “itchy” ears want to hear!

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; – 2 Timothy 4:3

But many forget, it is much more important to earn God’s approval, than it is to earn the approval of men!

Prepare, Pray & Be Ready!

An Inconvenient Truth!

A good friend wrote this. It was so good; I just have to share ๐Ÿ™‚

“God’s Word shares with you that Jesus said, “I AM the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also.”(John 14:6)

Know that we come to the final attribute of God to be covered in our brief examination of His Character. Jesus equates Himself with ” the Truth” and since Christ IS Lord over all, we understand that Truth IS fundamental to His Divine Nature.

Scripture repeatedly teaches the sanctity of truth. The evil one is called a “liar” and the “father of lies”, showing you that the opposite of what IS True is not holy. Truth is described as the sum of your Creator’s Word, and reminds us of how the Lord draws near only to those who call upon Him in truth. Jesus tells us it is better not to swear an oath at all if you have no intent to keep it. Truth IS not only to be believed in but also an action to be performed. Truly, it IS SO easy to falsely claim to know the truth but not live it out.

Truth IS also something that you do, and we are not faithful to the Lord if we are not concerned to walk in His True Way. This does not mean that we are perfect in obedience, but it DOES mean that you repent whenever you find yourself living contrary to His Standards.

Truth IS that which conforms to reality. Though we may not accurately perceive or understand the Real Truth at times, the same does NOT apply to the Almighty. Therefore, truth IS that which conforms to be real as it is perceived by God. He knows ALL things, and SO we can trust anything He reveals to you in Scripture, through His Holy Spirit. Truth IS not defined by your own standards – it IS determined by the Source of Truth Himself.

Truth IS like a mirror – it reflects exactly what it sees. Sometimes it is inconvenient because the reflection is not what you want to see. Your Heavenly Father crosses your path with those whom become a mirror for you. They become that reflection for you to be able to see yourself. Then, it IS up to you if what you are looking at is acceptable or not. Either way, an action IS needed to be performed. That is your personal choice – not anyone else. Thank God that He IS there ALWAYS to help you – on the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.

My thoughts and prayers are that you seek God’s Truth. That when your reflection is inconvenient, that your action IS to seek His Face – to accept Jesus and His Blood that was shed for you. That you walk in His True Way, now and forever. In Jesus’ Name. Thy Will be done. Amen. Peace.”

Saving Your Soul!

ย Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.” – Ezekiel 33:9

There is a trend lately. A bad trend. Our society fears to hurt anyone’s feelings or offend anyone. And yet, if we don’t share the truth, God’s Truth, with those we love; they may well fall-permanently.

While it’s true that many, and perhaps all, of those that we share God’s Truth with may refuse to hear it, we will still have done the right thing. Because when we love someone, we tell them the TRUTH-GOD’S TRUTH!

And remember, Truth by it’s very nature has only one Truth! Just as there is only one God ๐Ÿ™‚

Prepare, Pray & Be Ready!

Warning: God’s Truth & Freedom Of Speech!

“For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;”-Isaiah 59:12

Is America filled with sin. Sadly, yes. Even sadder, it is so filled with sin that states like Minnesota want to create a registry so people can’t even remind them of those sins (Minnesota’s proposed bias registry).

Minnesota’s proposed bias registry is very troubling. The question must be asked, will it included speech by a Pastor and other religious speech? What if the Bible is read out loud?

Clearly gay marriage and transgender acts are a sin. Will saying so now be place us on a bias registry? What about saying adultery or idols worship is a sin? Will that be placed on the bias registry as well? What about saying theft is a sin? Will that offend someone? Will it be entered in the bias registry too? Talk about loosing your freedom!

God’s Truth is the only Truth that matters! We as Christians share that Truth with one another and we pray that the Holy Spirit will share God’s Truth with us. Nothing and no one can stop God’s Truth, for it is written in our hearts! ๐Ÿ™‚

Please pray for our Pastors’ and all of our Leaders. Ask our Lord to give them courage to lead well and the right way, for they will need it!

Prepare, Pray & Be Ready!

Preparing for the Last Days: Seek The Truth – God’s Truth!

There’s a lot of talk about truth these days. Our Truth. Their Truth. The Media’s Truth. The Protester’s Truth. But there is only ONE Truth: God’s Truth.

It seems these days, so many people can not see the Truth. Instead they see what they want to see. The same thing happened before WWII. There were those who saw the Truth about the evil coming. Unfortunately, the majority did not want to see the Truth, so they saw what they wanted instead. And because they did, millions died and millions more suffered.

The same Blindness is happening again. We stand at the precipice. We can either turn towards God or turn towards evil. It’s our choice. Given to us by God Himself.

Many are simply confused! And often, evil appears good. After all, if a choice appeared evil, who would choose it? Not many.

This is where the Holy Spirit can really help us!

But the Holy Spirit can only help us, if we ask Him. He can remove the Blinders from our eyes so that we can see the one and only Truth: God’s Truth!

May You See God’s Truth And Choose Wisely!
