Know Your Truth

TruthWhether we want to admit it or not, there is a constant battle for your Truth. It’s not a new battle, but an old one. Genesis 3 says, God told Adam and Eve that if they ate of the Tree of Life in the garden they would die. Satan approaches Eve about the tree and when she reiterates God’s command, Satan presents another truth; you shall not die. In 1 Kings 18, Elijah asked a crowd, how long will you stagger between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” The reaction of the people was stunning, “they did not answer him a word.” Truth had been twisted and new truths taught for so long that the people didn’t know what truth was. In an epic battle for truth Baal’s prophets prayed, danced, and screamed, but 1 Kings 18:29 says, “there was no answer.” After they had finished, Elijah rebuilt an altar, prayed a sincere 63-word prayer and fire fell on the altar. In an instant the people knew truth and said, “the Lord, he is God.” There will always be a fight for the culture; for our lives, families and future. For our foundations. Humanism and the “theory of evolution,” a theory shall we not forget, says it is truth. Jesus says in John 14:16, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.” Psalm 11:3 says, “if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?” The battle is to crack, break, destroy our foundations of Truth. Know your Truth. Be relentless in prayer, in faithfulness, to read and teaching God’s Word.
