Responding To Truth

Manifestations are evidence of the new season we have entered into. Some are more obvious than others, but they are everywhere and it is so refreshing to be living in a new day. Every season, every epoch has its joys and challenges. Each is unique and necessary as we move through the annals of time from glory to glory. This new season is ear marked with distinctions that are no longer blurred. Wickedness is obvious, righteousness is revealed and there is no middle ground any longer. This is a gift from God we need to be grateful for, as it gives us understanding into where we stand and where others have chosen to stand. For some it is very uncomfortable, they feel exposed, for others it is joyful for they finally sense they are being revealed. The Bible is clear, sin loves to hide in the shadows under the cover of darkness, but life loves to live in the light and shine brightly for all to see. The seeds of both sin and righteousness have sprouted.

With this being our reality, conviction is going to be an experience that is restored, for truth speakers are not ashamed of the truth any longer. How people respond to conviction will be telling to both the person who is being convicted and the one who spoke the truth that brought conviction. Acts 5:30-33 says, “The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you had put to death by hanging Him on a cross. He is the one whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are witnesses of these things; and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him. But when they heard this, they were cut to the quick and intended to kill them.” When people are convicted by truth, they will respond in one of two ways, they will repent and return to the Lord or they will resent the one who spoke the truth to them. This will reveal their heart. The truth speakers must not take this personally, for if they do they will become silent and we need truth speakers to speak and keep on speaking. For only the truth is going to set people free.

The season has changed, truth is going to be the narrative of the nations. The response to this truth is going to be obvious, but the reponses will be different, just like what Peter and the apostles experienced. Truth is not going to be silent, because some people get violent when convicted. Truth will continue to pour down like torrential rain for the drought is over! The only question is, how will you respond when you hear the truth that is coming to set you, your family, your city, your nation free?
