In a world that is clamoring lies- God needs people stand up and speak the truth. Truth that is not the popular opinion but is God’s word. Truth that stands the same today as it did yesterday and as it will in the days to come. Facts and truth do not change- it is our perception of them that do.
The value of truth among the clamoring of lies is priceless. It takes great courage to stand up and declare the truth- knowing no one truly wants to hear it. People claim they want to talk and have open conversations about events in the world today- only to find they do not want to hear anything besides what agrees with their own thoughts and agendas.
People claim to want the truth but when they receive it- they reject it as lies because it does not agree with them. The intolerance for truth has grown far out of control.
Social media networks, big tech, and big media have all chosen to distort the truth and claim lies in attempt to turn the people of our country against one another.
They claim lies as truth and truth as lies. Fact checking every statement made. The problem is they are ‘fact-checking’ against lies instead of the truth- the absolute truth.
God’s people need to wake up and see the growing intolerance against God and the truth in His word. In an effort to “gain equality” for all they are stripping rights away from others. Simply shifting racism and discrimination from one group to another.
1 Kings 22 tells us about Micaiah whom was a prophet who would not tolerate anything but the truth and Ahab whom was the king of Israel who would not tolerate the truth.
Ahab and Jehoshaphat (King of Judah) were forming an alliance to go to war with Syria. This was a terrible idea to begin with. Ahab was an evil king who worshipped idols and surrounded himself with false prophets and Jehoshaphat had been a good king who led his nation back to God.
Jehoshaphat requested guidance from the Lord as to if they should go to war- so Ahab brought in 400 prophets who ‘prophesied’ great success. Jehoshaphat felt something wasn’t right with these ‘prophets’ and asked for a true prophet from the Lord.
Ahab knew a true prophet but hated him because ‘he do not prophesy good concerning him, but evil.
Micaiah was brought to the summit meeting- at first he plays along just to reveal how silly the kings were for seeking prophecies to confirm what they wanted to hear. When pressed for truth, Micaiah came through and predicted defeat for the kings and death to Ahab- if they went to war.
Micaiah was outvoted 400 to 1. The kings went to war and were defeated. Ahab tried to out smart the prophecy and disguise himself to avoid being killed.
But God’s word always stands.
Ahab was killed.
People in the world today are quick to tolerate anything and everything- except what doesn’t agree with them. The truth is the truth no matter what people may do to try to distort it.
Someone not believing what is the truth- does NOT make it any less true.
People need to hear the truth above all the clamoring of lies in the world. It is time to be intolerant of intolerance to the truth.
Thank you Lord for giving us the truth in Your Word. Thank you for blessing us with the freedom to choose to seek it in a world that is hell bent on standing on lies. Lord forgive us for being quick to believe what those in the world say is true and not doing our own fact-checking against Your Word. Lord, I pray you would give us courage to stand up for truth. I pray for discernment for all to know when they are being deceived. I pray for wisdom to understand what Your Word says to be true. I pray that You would light a fire in each of our hearts so that we would desire to seek You above all things. I declare in the name of Jesus that Satan’s schemes and deception will NOT prosper. I declare Jesus Christ is our Savior and He alone will save us from the enemy. I pray for safety for our country and Your mighty protection over each of us in Jesus mighty name I pray.
