Reading the Signs of the Times: The Assault on Truth
Our Reading the Signs of the Times series has been inspired by my friend and author Steve Miller. Steve’s book, "Foreshadows: 12 Megaclues That Jesus' Return Is Nearer Than Ever," shares greater detail on topics included in this series.
Next up on our road trip exploring the signs of the times: the assault on truth. As we continue to get closer and closer to the return of Jesus, truth will become harder to find and those who pursue it will be considered narrow-minded and hostile.
In order to control the truth, you must change the definition of words and facts. You will start to call evil good and good evil (Isaiah 5:20).
If you speak up, you will be intimidated to remain silent. Canceled. Censorship will become increasingly prevalent, as people and internet giants seek to squash the truth from being released.
Truth commissions will form, which begs the question…who gets to decide what is true? Why them and not others? Why not me or you?
It is important to remember that disagreement does not equal discrimination. However, in the days to come, as followers of Jesus, we must prepare ourselves for disagreement. We must be led by the Holy Spirit in all things, knowing when to speak, when to stay silent. Always remaining courageous.
Dear friend, don’t despair. Jesus’s truth will always prevail.Revelation 19:11 describes Jesus as the “one…called Faithful and True.”
Jesus, who is the truth (John 14:6), WINS!!! Never forget this promise.
And HIS kingdom will reign forever and ever.
