Truth From God

 


The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. ~Acts 5:41


They mandated

They proclaimed

Against the witnesses

Who wouldn't, couldn't

Deny their Lord

The "they" lost

In the long run

For Word lived then

Is living now

Truth from God

Stands as witness

Through eternity


Amen!

  1. How many people are too shy to proclaim their belief in God! How sad.

    God bless.

    2. Shy...or maybe just fearful?

  3. We need the boldness back in America to stand up for Christ unashamedly born out of intimacy with Him. No longer should we assume someone else will share truths. I know some day we will give account for what we also did not do when we knew we should. I look back at the times I felt the urging to share with someone but out of fear I did not and later felt the pangs of missing a divine appointment.

    1. These are the days in which we must be brave and stand up for the Lord, Valerie. We can't, as you say, assume someone else will do this for us. May His full armor protect us as we stand strong for Him!

  6. Amen, Martha! May we, God's children be ready, willing, able to stand strong in our faith and face the consequences. The apostles faced the consequences and many of our Brothers and Sisters in hostile nations are currently facing the consequences of Jesus' Name.

    Love and blessings!

    1. We do need to stand strong, Kim, and pray for those who face more consequences than we have yet to suffer in these United States. But we know, beyond any shadow of a doubt, the devil and his minions are out to get us. Let us not be afraid of confrontation and sacrifice when it comes to speaking God's truth.
      Love and blessings!

  7. Yes, Lord, grant us courage to live and speak for you in spite of derision and the refusal of some to even consider the reality of Jesus Christ and what he offers. We want to stand strong for you! (Thank you for your inspiration, Martha!)
