“Yeshua said, “I AM the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6-7, Complete Jewish Bible
Who do you trust? What person, news outlet, organization can you look to, believe in, and put your trust in, knowing they are telling the truth?
Not Congress. Probably now has the lowest approval rating in decades.
Not the President. If they ever would have allowed the actual facts to be presented from the previous national election, this one in that position wouldn’t be there.
School teachers? Their unions oppose opening the schools for “safety” reasons – when science has already stated that having kids back in school is not a super-spreader of the China virus.
Even many religious leaders don’t or won’t teach and preach the truth, fearing loss of income needed to finance the huge TV program budget, the big campus buildings, the high staff payrolls, starting at the top.
So, who do you trust?
With the ever-changing social culture around us, whether it be “woke”, “cancel culture”, or any other movement proclaiming whose lives matter, there must be a foundation, a long-founded basis on which to place one’s belief and confidence in. And there is.
It is the Bible. It is the Word of God. It is that which has been given to us, written by the Jewish prophets, the Jewish patriarchs, those believers in the One God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, to record and pass on the truth on which we are to base our lives.
We can trust God Who gave us His Word.
In these days of continuing wavering, mistrust, and unfounded proclamations being thrown out there and stated to be truth, all that is said and done must be weighed against the standard on which all must be tested. If it is not in the Bible and stated as truth, then it is not truth.
Anyone who stands up and declares an opinion cannot be trusted if that opinion goes against the Word of God. They can denounce His Word. They can say it is not so. They can attempt to replace His foundation truths with their own laws and decrees, but when it is all said and done, only His Word will have the capacity to stand. All else will fail.
Growing up during my high school days, I found comfort and confidence in knowing that if the world was going one way, I was meant to go the other. If society were presenting a new thought or idea in behavior and “never before seen or heard” way of life, I could be very sure that when compared to the Word of God, it was the wrong way. By God’s grace He kept many of us from going down the wrong path.
And so it is today. Whatever new logic, new concept, or new “gospel” is presented to us, we must continually base our actions and reactions on the foundation written in the Bible and act accordingly. If it means to stand on what others would call old and outdated ideals, and label us with every name they can think of, then so be it.
Jesus, Yeshua states plainly of our times in which we must decide on whom we will trust.
“I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My name.” Revelation 3:8, NASU
Don’t back down when confronted with the latest craze of societal, political, or religious thought that goes against the written Word of God. If we deny Him, He will deny us.
“If we endure, we shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself.” 2 Timothy 2:12-13, NKJV
We are the ones being called upon to hold the line, to defend the truth, to keep pushing for righteousness and justice in our lands. We cannot grow weary and lose heart, for our God is continually for us.
