In the midst of all the chaos that darkens our country these days, peace alludes us. We cry out for peace, well some do, but there is no peace. So what’s the problem?
Perhaps the problem lies in recognizing Truth. Because until we know what’s true, we won’t have peace. To go even further with this thought, rejecting Truth has a predictable outcome. And replacing Truth with a counterfeit truth leads to destruction.
I believe it all comes down to this. Our country started out recognizing that God is Truth. God’s record of Truth, the Bible, was the foundation upon which our country was established. However, since then we as a country have drifted from what we knew to be true. The rejection of God and His word produces predictable outcomes. The Bible records the consequences of a land who rejects God/Truth in Romans 1:18-32. It reads like a commentary on life in present day America
Our country’s rejection of God/Truth begs the question, “Why would we reject a truth that was proven to be true by the odds of ten to the 21st power (1021) There were over 300 fulfilled predictions regarding Christ in the Bible. This mathematical computation was based on only 8 of those predictions being true. Just ponder that for a moment!
As a nation, and even as an individual, if we genuinely desire peace then we MUST turn to and embrace the Author of Truth. We are in the throws of the consequences of rejecting God/Truth. What more will it take to wake us up?
The lies of fiery darts are attempting to place you in bondage.
But Hope in God’s Truth will release you from its bondage,
But you must acknowledge that God is Truth!
How can a country know Truth when they have rejected the source of Truth–God? Of course, you can’t know Truth apart from God. (John 18:37) But apparently there are many (too many) who believe that it can be done and down through the ages they have attempted to do so. The results of their efforts have given birth to a definition based on lies. For those who have rejected God’s Truth, darkness has become a way of life for them. They have become so accustomed to the dark that they see the darkness as light and the light as darkness. Ooh, that sounds familiar, doesn’t it? (Isaiah 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness,…) And the resulting man’s truth has created a climate of fear and bondage throughout our land.
we are willing to acknowledge God as the source of Truth, then and only then will the Light of Truth shine down upon us, exposing the fiery darts that we have allowed to plunge us into darkness. When we acknowledge the Light of Truth, then Hope, and Faith will return and we will be released from the bondage of the lies and the fear they produce.
Take heart Christians,
in the following verse:
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32
I write this post because America is in serious trouble. And because so many of our leaders are blinded to the Truth, we must be careful not to be caught up in their deception. We must not allow the lies of their truth to destroy our Hope. Instead we must dig deep into God’s Word and arm ourselves with God’s Truth. And in obeying that Truth, we will discover that God is in control and man is not. (Daniel 4:35 and Isaiah 14:27) We will discover there is nothing to fear.(Isaiah 41:10) We will discover He has good plans that we can place solid hope in now and for our future (Jeremiah 29:11). We will discover that no matter what may come our way God will cause it all to work out together for our good. (Roman 8:28) I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point!
So, Keep the Faith.
And remember, that other’s lack of faith in God and their disobedience to Him, in NO way diminishes God’s Truth.
