WELCOME ON BOARD!!!!
A lot might have been said and written about truth,but truth be told,the word “TRUTH”itself is gradually fading,and massively being eroded off our very world.Even the within religious organisations (which are suppose to be the epitome of unadulterated truth)we have been found wanton.
In my little way,I will be showing and reminding us of some of the truth HE left for us according to HIS WORD.
AS A WISE MAN RIGHTLY SAID:
- TRUTH IS CONSTANT.
- TRUTH IS ETERNAL .
- TRUTH IS IMMUTABLE.
- TRUTH IS TRUTH.
- YOU CAN DO NOTHING AGAINST THE TRUTH,BUT FOR THE TRUTH.
Bishop David Oyedepo
IIN THE BOOK OF JOHN CHAPTER 14:6
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF SAID:
All of HIS sayings from the above excerpt are definitive.
In summary HE was trying to say,when you are unsure about a matter, you are curious about an issue, a situation seem to contradict what originally it ought to be,a scenario within your organisation portrays a total deviation from what you have read from the scriptures,HE said,”I AM THE TRUTH”,consult me,consult THE HOLY BIBLE,the answers to all these numerous questions and countless of other puzzling issues are there.
TAKE A STAND
One of the most difficult things for us as human beings is to stand for the truth,even when we know outrightly that the issue before us is somehow being manipulated,we often lack that courage to challenge such development.It is even much more appalling when someone in the vantage position lacks the tenacity to bring justice to bear in the midst of an ugly situation.Of course occurrence of this nature is no longer alien to us,it is prevalent within our communities,neighbourhood, organizations, offices, the list is simply endless.
We more often than not find ourselves in a fix not knowing which camp to pledge our loyalty to,question like “should just go for the real thing,’cos its so obvious and support this fellow?,but he is the lone one out,I may end-up losing out in the camp of this massive crowd,they are many,let me go with them,maybe just for this moment”. Not knowing that you have just compromised.
There is this erroneous and generally adopted norm is in my country(well I don’t know if it is common in any other country),”if you can’t beat them, join them”.Unfortunately,this “concept ” has damaged a lot of things,and is still ravaging the entire system,from the once robust economy,which is now a shadow of itself,to the moral ethics,that has left our teeming youths visionless,the political arena is in its fallen state waiting for a possible revival and of course unfortunately the house of God,which our LORD JESUS CHRIST describe as,”the light of the world…….,a city set on a hill that cannot be hid.”
Moving forward,we understand from the scriptures according to the book of Ps 11:3;
“If the foundations be destroyed,what can the righteous do?”
Contrary to the assumption of many believers that this scripture is judgemental,i.e viewing it as being more of a verdict,rather,it is a question thrown to the body of CHRIST.
“If the foundations be destroyed,what can the righteous do?.
Note that the word foundations ifoundationss in plural form.Meaning there are certain virtuevirtues and factors that makes up the “foundation”.Paramount amidst these is the ” TRUTH”.
So in essence,the question can as well readread thus;
” If the truth among others be destroyed,what can the righteous do?”
And I believe our God will definitely expect us to be proactive as far as this call is concerned;
“….WHAT CAN THE RIGHTEOUS DO.”
- THE RIGHTEOUS CAN PRAY.
- THE RIGHTEOUS CAN DISSOCIATE HIMSELF FROM APPEARANCE OD EVIL.
- THE RIGHTEOUS CAN DARE TO SPEAK THE TRUTH.
- THE RIGHTEOUS CAN ATTEMPT TO REBUILD THE RUINS OF THE FOUNDATIONS.
- THE RIGHTEOUS CAN ASK FOR COUNSEL AND DIRECTION FROM THE LORD.
- THE RIGHTEOUS CAN CHALLENGE THE WORKS OF DARKNESS.
- THE RIGHTEOUS CAN ENGAGE THE MINISTRY OF THE PROPHETS.
- AND MANY MORE…..
