Speaking The Truth In Love Part 3

“But instead we will remain strong and always sincere in our love as we express the truth. As Christians, we are instructed to “speak the truth in love”. Ephesians 4:15 (TPT) In pursuit of order and justice, Christianity places governments not in the place of God but in a place of accountability to God. [1] God never intended people to…

Speaking The Truth In Love Part 2

“But instead we will remain strong and always sincere in our love as we express the truth. As Christians, we are instructed to “speak the truth in love”. Ephesians 4:15 (TPT) In Part 1 Speaking The Truth In Love of this series, I referred to God’s plumb line of righteousness found in Amos 1:7-9. God is aligning His people because He loves us,…

Speaking The Truth In Love

“But instead we will remain strong and always sincere in our love as we express the truth. As Christians, we are instructed to “speak the truth in love”. Ephesians 4:15 (TPT) Let me first state that I’m neither, Democrat nor Republican. I am a lover of Jesus and all that He stood during His time here on earth. I do…

Pursuing Justice

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. —Psalm 89:14 New INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV) As I scan my daily news feed I see articles such as: “Why America Can’t Solve Homelessness”, “102-year-old California woman evicted so landlord’s daughter can move in”, “Retirement should not mean hardship – but many older Americans live in…

Restoring Righteousness – Part 3

The need for prophesy is precisely expressed in Proverbs 29:18. Prophets enable others to envision life more in conformity with God’s own vision of a just society. Where there is no vision [no revelation of God and His word], the people are unrestrained; But happy and blessed is he who keeps the law [of God]. Proverbs 29:18 During the Old Testament period, God’s…

Restoring Righteousness – Part 4

Light uncovers what the darkness hides. The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal…

Restoring Righteousness – Part 2

As I started writing this post this morning it took a slight turn from my original writing.  ”Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails” (Proverbs 19:21). Many prophetic words are being released regarding the restoration of righteousness in the earth. As I mentioned in Part 1, tsedakah (tsedek) is rendered as…

Restoring Righteousness

Heaven must receive him until the time comes for God to restore everything, as he promised long ago through his holy prophets. ((Acts 3:21 NIV) The relationship between God and humankind was disrupted in the Garden (Genesis 3). There were consequences related to that disruption, and steps have been taken by God to restore that relationship. With much of what…

God Is Sovereign Over The Affairs Of Men – Part 2

Everyone, it seems, understood the priority of the Kingdom; Everyone except us. Abraham, Moses, Samuel, King David, the prophets, and Jesus knew it. Sadly, multitudes if believers today know little about the Kingdom, and even fewer understand their place and rights as Kingdom citizens. Many of the Scriptures speak of and revere God as King of kings: ”I have installed…
