Truth

English – Spanish

Who has known that the Day of the Lord, the Great Day of Judgment comes in the anointed servant of God who comes without warning or fanfare or observation? Who has known that he not only comes as a thief but abides and performs as one and leaves the households he has visited with their due judgments while most are totally unaware until it is much after the fact?

 

I am Truth.

I judge all things,

And all things come before Me,

Creatures great and small,

Young and old,

Foolish and wise.

I ever preside,

Here and now.

All is under My scrutiny;

I am the great white throne;

I am that I am.

 

All are haled before Me;

All are tried,

All are made manifest,

All are sentenced,

All are recompensed

According to the thought of their hearts,

The words of their lips,

The works of their hands.

No man is exempt,

Even for a moment.

 

I judge the saint;

I judge the heathen;

I punish the evildoer

And reward the righteous,

Right where they stand.

None can escape Me;

Whether it be My wrath

Or My reward,

They receive their just dues.

 

The fool despises Me,

Is blind to My presence,

Ignorant of My power,

Scornful of My law;

He perishes.

 

The wise love Me

And honor Me

And are blessed,

Prospering in all things.

 

Lethbridge, Alta., March 1986

My Boy
If and when financial blessings come, one comes into danger of straying after mammon. Mammon has a way of creating and whetting the appetite for more. More accurately, it has a way of rousing the carnal nature with what is already there. I began to be dissatisfied with what my money was doing in the bank at terrible interest rates, thinking I was a coward or a poor steward by not working the money to get better returns. I ended up in the stock market. Fear and Greed, two robust bullies, caught me in the back alley on my way to the bank and beat me severely. I lost two years of peace with my family and God knows how much more. My faith was greatly battered. One cannot play with fire and not get burned. A bitter lesson indeed. My boy had been such a joy to me and I missed him for a part of our lives. If you value life, flee mammon; don't rationalize; don't compromise; don't even think it...flee to God for your life. I wrote this during a fast a couple of years later, when I was expected to die.   I've missed my boy since '93; Money was all that I could see; Even robbed him of maternity; Without my boy since '93.   Hung a plaque up on the wall The words of which would say it all And failed my duty to heed that call Now all I can do is bawl and bawl.   Son, don't ever cry, the fault's not yours; I'm persuaded the Lord will even scores. How does He do it? by the blood He pours, Reuniting us on better shores.   Mom, please don't spoil ou...
The Sword
I have heard it said many times that whatever divides is not of God. Of course, that simply depends on what is being divided and why. Is it not of God to divide sheep from goats, fleece from sheep, truth from error, heretics from the faithful, wheat from the tares? The problem is that those who make the statement above presume to be sheep or, they are under the false notion that pain and suffering and sorrow arising naturally from division are products of Satan and not of God. But these same people indulge in dividing others in the Name of God and think nothing of it. And does not God wound and break? Does He not call to forsake wife, children, parents and friends? Is forsaking easy and pleasant? If so, it would not be forsaking.   I am not sent for division's sake; I do not come to attack; Strife and debate I do not sow, Yet all these are found where I go.   I haven't come for evil's sake, Bearing trouble, sorrow and pain, Yet the sword I bear Will cut in two And each half in two again.   There are those who wish to take the truth And claim it for their own But others, joined to them, declare "If you go, you go alone."   I cannot help but cause this woe If I am to speak what is true; I can only hope as time goes on That your loved ones will come too.   But you cannot wait for them to come, The time to take heed is now. Just as you cannot wait for yours, The call cannot wait for you.   As friends increase, my enemies...
Judging
Jesus said “Judge not according to the appearance but judge righteous judgment.” Therefore there is a right and true and valid judging. The problem is that many do not recognize the difference between the right kind and the wrong, and many lawless, hiding their own sins, refuse to acknowledge that there is a valid kind to which they might be subjected by judges who are used by God. What is the sure and fair standard? It is none other than the revelation of God, given to men who have died and received that understanding and wisdom in those matters they judge, having been given to know the secrets of the heart. The price is the beam by way of the cross. Measure me! How long am I? How tall? How big? How strong? Is there anything to measure When all is said and done? Do I compare to what I was Or what I will yet be? And what will I be? Do I compare to others? What standard will you use? What I have, will I always have it? Is it worth having to lose it in the end? Is the glory worth the shame? Vanity! Utter vanity! Our possessions aren’t two cents! One day they’re here and then they’re gone. Failure never relents. Judge me if you think you can; What measure will you use? Inner, outer, upper, lower, Do you have any clues? Appearance is not all there is In fact, appearance isn’t. It is NOT. But how will you know what is? Does reality not exist? Is it not available? Or is it here and unperceived Only because you are blind? There is an answer. Lethbridge,...
