When Jesus said “The truth will set you free” He did not mean to continue and live as you always have by doing as the world does, for He has called you out of the world and it’s way’s. His way is not the most popular and it will separate you many times causing you to be hated and mocked, but this is the true walk of the christian that does not fit into following the mass because it’s so accepted. Paul spoke the word boldly knowing his message was supported by God (1 Thessalonians 2:4-6) 4 But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts. 5 For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know, nor a cloke of covetousness; God is witness: 6 Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ.
Throughout many generations God has always sent out His people and prophet’s to carry His message to the nation’s. His truth will not have a huge following for it is written wide is the gate to destruction and many find it, but narrow is the way that leads to life and very few find it! The way Jesus spoke to Jerusalem He would surely say to us today (Matthew 23:37,38).
Moses knew Israel would not be accepting of what he was saying and asked God “Who should I say has sent me?” God replied “I AM THAT I AM” has sent you. That answer alone shows us the word of God will stand for all eternity (Exodus 3:11-15).
God shows His wisdom in letting those who do not want to know His righteous ways and truth by allowing them to believe our message seem as foolishness, so that He can save those who truly do believe His word! How Brilliant is the Lord our God (1 Corinthians 1:18-21) 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
The true follower’s of Christ are as soldier’s called to perform a mission of God to send out the message of the good news of the gospel, no matter if it be accepted or not it remains the written word of God! (2 Timothy 2:1-4).
