“And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter” (Isaiah 59:14)
Today’s Morsel: The title on the cover of “Time Magazine” for April was “Is Truth Dead?”. This title captured my attention and I used it for my message title on Resurrection Sunday. The author of the article, questioned if the President was being honest with his tweets, while the President questioned the media's honesty with their reporting. I took from the article that they were each calling the other dishonest. Isaiah presents to us a picture of a court room of corruption. Lady justices does not seem to be overseeing the court of law. He wrote, “And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” When a nation or a people is without godly character; rules, verdict, and sound decision making will always be backward; there will never be fairness and impartiality among the rulers, and wrong will always be elevated as right. Therefore, Jesus said, “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me” (John 14:1). Why? “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” He said (John 14:6). Truth isn’t dead. As the angel asked those who came to the tomb, “Why seek ye the living among the dead?... He is not here, but is risen” (Luke 24:5-6). Let the world see Him in you. He is Truth.
Sing: He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today, He walks with me and He talks with me, along life’s narrow way; He lives, He lives, salvation to impart, you ask me how I know He lives, He lives within my heart.
Thought For Today: God’s not Dead!
