STAND STRONG


“Yea, surely God will not do wickedly; neither will the Almighty pervert judgment”(KJV) - Job 34:12

God is Truth! He speaks the truth, lives the truth and cannot be or do anything else.

Let me repeat that God is truth and that is the whole truth! Somebody once said, if God tells a lie, that lie would become the truth. Sometimes, in a bid to justify wrong behaviour, people say that if God tells a lie, it becomes truth but that is misleading and not at all true to His character. God does not manipulate the truth by telling a lie, forging documents or signatures, claiming something or somebody exists when they don’t, being a ghost worker, ghost spouse or by misleading or misrepresenting facts in any way.

God is not a man that He should lie; so you cannot associate God with lies but truth – He is the truth. If He says He is your healer, then He is. If He says He is your Provider, then He is. If He says, He is the Alpha and Omega, then He is and that is the absolute truth. There is no perversion, deception and no film tricks. And in His truth, there is justice, honour and integrity.

Our ability to accept God's truth is important and it will certainly affect the way we live especially when we realise that we are the ones who will eventually have to change. We will have to conform to His truth and not the other way around. It is His character that gives us confidence to stand strong.

Dear Pastor Anita, Thanks so much for this inspiration. The bottom line is, "He who thinks he stands should take heed lest he falls" as Christians we must shorn any doctrine that is not in line with God's word. We must continually keep our focus on God's word and study the word of God for ourselves, lest we be deceived. God is righteous. There is no unrighteouness in him. God's word is clear about unrighteousness. A Christian should not practise sin. The scripture is clear on this. We must continually depend on the holy spirit to guide us in line with God's word. We should humble ourselves and continually ask the Holy Spirit our Helper to guide, help and support us. Thank you so much for reminding us of God's word.

To be candid I stumbled on this site somehow some few moments ago, I must say that when ever I read your column on rhapsody of reality I always somehow feel that those writeups were those of Pastor Chris bearing your photo, but for the first time I can now see clearly how deep you also are in these things. Pastor Anita, everything you've said so far has been excellent, both on this article and several others on this site but I have chosen to comment here on this one. For me the problem ALL men have with the truth is the spirit of PRIDE. Anyone one that must stand strong in the truth must be able to kill that spirit called PRIDE When the spirit of PRIDE sets in, the truth we think we know becomes deformed and thwarted and therefore serve as feeds to our PRIDE. The spirit of PRIDE is the gate way to all manner of unholy and unruly behavior regardless of the individual's status and proximity to the MOST HIGH. It's makes the heart blind to reasoning and orderly conduct. It makes the individual see others as inferior and as been but only weak. Nevertheless, there is a Higher spirit, more powerful, superior and eternal, the spirit of LOVE. ALL that we will ever need are wrapped up in the spirit called LOVE If used correctly. LOVE can never be wrong. LOVE is the answer, LOVE will conquer pride any day. ONLY LOVE can heal the wounds I would like to stop here, a lot am led to say but cannot be uttered here. But I believe it is not over. Let love lead, because love would ALWAYS win. God bless you Pastor.

Thank you Pastor Anita. GOD IS NOT a man that He should lie; HE IS RIGHTEOUSNESS. THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS (Jeremiah 23:5-6). You are blessed and a blessing!

Yes God is Truth whatever he says is truth! When he says I hate divorce, that is truth - no tricks or words to justify our actions.

Such a profound clarification and yet again an example of the play of words inferring thoughts but used for manipulations. God is definitely not man and as such our minds should not allow our thoughts change his nature neither should anyone attempt to do so. Thank you again.

I was thinking about something similar that I heard, that God does create a brand new destiny for some. The problem with that is: if God has to ever create a new destiny for anyone, it means He does make mistakes and is fallible. It is not true that God will at any circumstance create a new destiny. Instead, all that a man is and will be was predestined by God before the foundation of the world. Even if it appears that God changed a man's course, all of that was embedded in His original plan for that person. God does not learn because He knows everything. Thank you for debunking any idea that links God with wrong doing of any sort.

Pastor A, you hit the nail on it's bud. Man deceive themselves by thinking they can manipulate & play God. Is not pathetic that when they want to distort weaker minds that seeks solace in them, they twist the truth that when god lies, it becomes the truth. Meaning when they make mistakes, rather than owing up and make corrections, they manipulate the innocents. I wonder how long that would stand with the truth.

Thanks. Pastor. Anita God is truth. Never and will never change His word for this is the confident of our christain living When lies has been instilled in people via doctrine for a long time. People believe it because they assume who ever has said it cannot be challenged for fear of retribution ie hierarchy Thanks for changing the status quo God never lies and his word changeth not

What a revelation, the greatest challenge facing those misrepresenting God as Men of God is that of character; they have very serious character issue and instead of deflating their ego and work on changing they simply twist the word of God to suit their agenda. This set of men of God are still CARNAL believers but instead of changing continue to think of themselves so highly. Like the Pharisees and saducees the greatest problem with CARNALITY is that the person suffering it can never own up, they rather perish in it because in their eyes they don't have a problem but the problems of others is so magnified in their eyes. I pity the young ones following this self-styled Men of God. Any person following a Man of God in quote who associates God with lies should be careful or else he will lead them to hell in the end.
