Truth, the Force That Rules
Truth, because it is truth, it rules over all confusion and chaos—it has preeminence over all things. Truth must conquer all misconceptions by revealing itself. Truth is obligated to make itself known.
There was a time when men scoffed at the concept that the world was round. Truth drove man to destroy the concept that the earth was flat. Man did not believe that it was possible to travel by air. Man did not believe voices and pictures could travel through the air. But Truth stirred people’s hearts and there was no peace in their mind’s until voices were being heard, pictures were being seen, and highways were opened (made) in the heavens. I could go on and on for hours, pointing out how the Creator whispers in the ears of his creative force and explodes ignorance.
A few centuries back, a poor unlearned creature staggered out of the jungle of South America after indulging in witchcraft and declared to the world that he had uncovered the secrets of creation—he deceived nations. But Truth has risen up and uttered her voice. And shame now covers the faces of those who have believed without searching for facts.
I love the way the Lord reveals his truth. Mankind creates wars and they clash over religious ideas, while the Creator remains silent until it is time to expose the myth—then behold there is truth standing in all its glory, with evidence that cannot be denied.
The Bible instructs us to correct our children, while mankind has declared that it should not be done. Have you noticed the problems that are developing between children and their parents? What is truth revealing?
Children are forbidden to learn about Yahweh in our schools. Has there been a change in our children and their school since the Bible and prayer were removed? What does truth reveal? Has that decision proved to be beneficial to us and our children? What is truth showing us?
Yahweh is the Creator of the creature; he alone has the rule book. He alone knows how to create a healthy environment. He has handed us the rules,
“He that spares his rod hates his son: but he that loves him chastens him betimes,” Proverb 13:24
The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself brings his mother to shame. When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increase: but the righteous shall see their fall, Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.” Proverbs 29:15-18
It is a wonderful privilege to be given the privilege of raising another person, but it is our responsibility to do everything within our power to give them every advantage to live a happy life, but few are the people who grow up with maverick spirits that ever find joy and peace in their life time.
The enemy in high places is doing all possible to overthrow our country. He is trying to control our courts and our schools. He is working to align mindsets to a godless agenda. What are we as Christians doing about it? It’s time we raise up in our God-given authority and power and get back on track.
The Lord helped me to know the difference between screaming and threatening a child and in correcting a child. If we are consistent in convincing our babies that we are their source of hugs and kisses, but that we are the parent and they are subject to us, we will have the job done before they celebrate their second birthday. And if we are wise, our most severe weapons are a firm hand slap and a warm embrace. We should leave no question in our baby’s mind about our authority. I firmly believe that parents who spare the rod (correction) the first two years of their baby’s life find themselves in conflict with their children a thousand times more often than the parent that tenderly usurps authority the first two years of the baby’s life. Babies need strict rules to follow and wise parents which have the wisdom to refrain from laughing when baby breaks the rules.
The rod of correct spoken of in the scripture below is not a club, an angry fist, or a mouth full of loud demands, it is a combination of love and wisdom that stands out in firmness in their tender years to guide their steps and create a since of security and stability in their lives. This is the holding power, because, foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod (the active power of authority) of correction shall drive it far from him,” Proverb 22:15.
“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the law, happy is he,” Proverb 29:18.
