We see and feel the effects of living in a sin-filled fallen world driven by lies, the media are the devil's mouthpiece as they spew hate, negativity and lies 24 hours a day 7 days a week, they muddle the truth, telling versions that fit their agenda dragging down those who follow blindly, calling good evil, and evil good.
The more people ignore God’s truth the harder their hearts become, the easier they are deceived, confused, they are led by fallen spirits that control their very thoughts and actions, leading them away from God, the Bible says God turns them over to their desires.
The flip side of this is the more time you spend in the truth, the more you see the devastation of our world and the power behind it.
Jesus said you shall know the Truth and the Truth shall set you free, but how will you know the Truth, if you don’t pick up the Word of God and read, if you don’t ask for God to reveal the Truth to you, if you don’t do your part and follow what God says.
Jesus said His children hear His voice! Do you hear His voice today saying forsake all, pick up your cross and follow me?
He is calling you and I to tune out the world, cover ourselves in the Truth of His word, tell others about Him, lead them to the light of the gospel message, and He will set them free from the claws of sin and death.
God’s words say this;
“Woe to those who drag iniquity with cords of deceit and pull sin along with cart ropes, to those who say: “Let him hurry up and do his work quickly so that we can see it! Let the plan of the Holy One of Israel take place so that we can know it!” Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who consider themselves wise and judge themselves clever.” Isaiah 5:18-21 CSB
“I came to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already set ablaze! But I have a baptism to undergo, and how it consumes me until it is finished! Do you think that I came here to bring peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. From now on, five in one household will be divided: three against two, and two against three. They will be divided, father against son, son against father, mother against daughter, daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law. ” He also said to the crowds: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, right away you say, ‘A storm is coming,’ and so it does. And when the south wind is blowing, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of the earth and the sky, but why don’t you know how to interpret this present time?” Luke 12:49-56 CSB
“You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”John 8:32CSB
“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you know me, you will also know my Father. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”John 14:6-7 CSB
“Let those who have believing masters not be disrespectful to them because they are brothers, but serve them even better, since those who benefit from their service are believers and dearly loved. Teach and encourage these things. If anyone teaches false doctrine and does not agree with the sound teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the teaching that promotes godliness, he is conceited and understands nothing, but has an unhealthy interest in disputes and arguments over words. From these come envy, quarreling, slander, evil suspicions, and constant disagreement among people whose minds are depraved and deprived of the truth, who imagine that godliness is a way to material gain. But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out.
But you, man of God, flee from these things, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance, and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of eternal life to which you were called and about which you have made a good confession in the presence of many witnesses. In the presence of God, who gives life to all, and of Christ Jesus, who gave a good confession before Pontius Pilate, I charge you to keep this command without fault or failure until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ. God will bring this about in his own time. He is the blessed and only Sovereign, the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see, to him be honor and eternal power. Amen.” 1 Timothy 6:2-7, 11-16 CSB
