Daily Wisdom

For there are certain men crept in unawares…” Jude 1:4

Peter in (2 Pt 2:1) warned us as well concerning the worlds encroachment in the Gospel and God’s word, and thus your life if you’re not prepared to contend (vs 3; Phl 1:17) and stand for truth.  The enemy has a two-fold attack, it can try to attack your weakness to beat you or it can try to attack your strength and break you. Both are overcome by your ability to stand in the truth and promises of God’s word (1 Kg 8:56; Eph 1:13). In order to discern a lie from the enemy you must first know the truth, thus not knowing the truth allows for someone else to define it for you. Truth isn’t determined by the populous, it’s still truth even if no one believes it, and a lie is a lie even if everyone believes it.   Remember, only the truth in Christ sets you free (Jn 8:32) from the attack and defeat of the enemy.  If the words spoken don’t add up to God’s word, it’s usually because the truth wasn’t included in the equation.

If you don’t know the truth you only know what you’re told.
