WHAT IS REALITY? WHAT IS TRUTH? Reality is the state of substance as it applies to a moment in time. What is perceived and proclaimed as truth by those who are not qualified to present it, are deceivers of reality. God is Truth; The Written Word of God is reality; the implanted knowledge of good and evil within man, is the plum line of truth.
“Go, inquire of the LORD for me, and for those who are left in Israel and Judah, concerning the words of the book that is found; for great is the wrath of the LORD that is poured out on us, because our fathers have not kept the word of the LORD, to do according to all that is written in this book (2Ch 34:21).”
The Word of God given to us to preach, teach, meditate, guide and to strengthen is the manual to life, on earth as it is in Heaven. To deviate from its truth, to manipulate its meaning is heresy, all who are found criminal in doing so, will pay the ultimate price of perdition.
18 “For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book (Rev 22:18-19).”
FALLEN FROM GRACE:
I once knew a man, a wonderful man of God; he was my pastor. Through his teachings and guidance I found my way to Christ Jesus and ultimately to where I am today. However, along the way, he stumbled and fell, lost his church, his family and position of honor amongst his peers, and sad to say he is no longer my pastor. When sin overtures God’s appointed path for you, do not expect to be repositioned once again to the place of honor you may once have attained; the blame is yours not God’s. Jesus Is The Way Maker, not the way enforcer. Watching a 20/20 documentary this morning on Bishop Carlton Pearson’s ministry and his distorted beliefs about Heaven and Hell, revealed once again mans interpretations and dissection of God’s Written Word and the audacity of man’s presumption that believes once he or she matures in Christ, that one may take liberties with the unmovable and unchangeable Holy Bible: Those who would and are attempting to replace The Truth for a lie, will have harsh and dire consequences come upon them.. As it is written:
“There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one (Rom 3:10-12).”
BE COUNTED WORTHY: As a Minister, Preacher, Bishop or Sunday School Teacher, it is your good pleasure and high honor to teach the Truth as it is written within the boundaries of the Holy Bible. When the teacher becomes un-teachable and untouchable then his or her religion is destructive, thus: Religion Kills Jesus Heals©.
13 Therefore the Lord said: “Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths and honor Me with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men, 14 Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder; For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.” 15 Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from the LORD, and their works are in the dark; They say, “Who sees us?” and, “Who knows us?” 16 Surely you have things turned around! Shall the potter be esteemed as the clay; For shall the thing made say of him who made it, “He did not make me”? Or shall the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”? (Isaiah 29:13-16)
There is no substitute for the truth. Truth is real, factual, accurate, genuine, precise, legitimate, upright, sincere, loyal and honest. To stand before a body of hearers, may it be only one or thousands, a representative of Christ Jesus must adhere to all these qualities of truth or step aside and let one who is able. No one can hide his or her unbelief for long, it will sprout up as a weed to reveal its true nature and judgment will consume it.
“Your nakedness shall be uncovered, Yes, your shame will be seen; I will take vengeance, And I will not arbitrate with a man.” (Isaiah 47:3)
JESUS WILL SET YOU FREE: The truth always reveals what is hidden. Sin is a destructive force and in sin, the decay will be made evident. However if you have strayed, fear not, for Jesus Is a Forgiver of sin if you will trust in Him. 31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him,
“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31-32).
If you choose to believe the Written Word in its entirety, you will be set free from the bondage of disbelief and compromise that entraps so many, but know this; with or without your authorship, The Word of God will endure to the end of time.
34 Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed” (John 8:34-36).
If this message describes you, I need to pray for your healing right now:
Heavenly Father, reveal to those who have veered off the narrow path laid out for them by You, that they have gone astray. Guide them back off the wide path of destruction, set them once again upon a platform to administer Your Word to a lost generation. Love them, forgive them, and welcome them Home again where goodness and mercy shall follow them all the days of their lives. In The Name of Jesus, Amen.
In His service
