Borrowed Truths


Here is a statement that every born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ will agree with, “The Lord is righteous in all that He does.”

Now, I will place these words before you, and allow you to contemplate them, “The Lord is righteous in all that He allows.”

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.” (2 Tim. 3:12) The Lord allows evil, is He righteous in allowing it to be so, does the holiness of the Most High become besmirched in your eyes when the truth of the matter is placed before you, that God allows evil to flourish?

Most will not go any further on this topic, for they either will not or cannot comprehend the Sovereign Lord of all creation turning a blind eye, as it were, to untold amounts of depravity and violence, to the continuous sins of mankind. At best they will think on those days when it will not be so, when those who are evil will face the punishment of their deeds for all eternity in the Lake of Fire, but beyond that final conclusion, the present tense of the statement I have offered you today in this short letter, they will not give a passing thought to.

I offer you this verse, in no disrespectful way, and with no further intent but to assist you in what you should already be doing, keeping every thought captive for Christ, but I offer it to you in the context of this letter and ask you to look at it in reference to the Lord. “Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” (James 4:17)

I know, some of you just called me sacrilegious, a man of words that should have brought the instantaneous wrath of the Lord upon myself. We are to do good for the glory of God, if we do not do good, well, read again what that last verse says. Now many of you will say, and rightly so that God never does evil, yet He allows it, in fact, the days we are living in seems to be one of lights dimming, of Christians hiding, of sin abounding, and God just watching. “These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.

Now consider this, ye that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.” (Psalm 50:21-22)

The Holy Spirit told Asaph to write that, the Holy Spirit is God, God is Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is the Holy Spirit, three in one. Yet search for a Christian that envisions Jesus killing 40,000 for looking in His ark, find one that sees the face of our Savior as He closes the Red Sea over a thousand or more Egyptians, you will be looking a long time to find that person.

“Jesus is love, and He just wants everybody to love each other, to be kind and polite all the time.”

One of the most ingenious deceits of our adversary since he invented Santa Clause or the Easter bunny, and sadly one that most Christians have fallen to, make no mistake, evil wicked men and women, and even some we would like to still call children will indeed have their place in eternal damnation, but for today God is allowing sin to flourish, and in a way that we cannot understand, He is righteous in doing so.

“Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine.” (Exo. 19:5)

He saw what that wicked mother did to her child, He watched as that man ruthlessly hunted down and killed that person, and He allowed it to happen, He made no effort to stop it. Like I mentioned, if you have continued to read this letter this far, then you are either sure of the Sovereignty of the Most High, or you just became very angry with me.

I am going to lay one more verse at your feet, and with it you will either begin to act upon it or decide to stop reading these Letters of Truth. “Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?” (Psalm 94:16) Have you ever given any thought that perhaps the Lord was expecting you to act in these matters? He didn’t need you to, but looking back now, how many opportunities have you had to do just that?
