Making Wrong Right and Right Wrong
to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!Isaiah 5:20-21
As we approach end times, we are starting to see what is bad to the Lord is becoming good according to the world’s view, and what is good to the Lord is becoming bad in the world’s view. This is understandable because Satan always takes what God meant for good and leads the world to see it bad.
Satan is filling the world with his lies and we fight Satan by filling the world with God’s truth. You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44) These are the words Jesus told the Pharisees whose hearts were far from God. The verse clearly says they were carrying out the devil’s desire, which reveals to power of Satan and his demons in controlling people in their thinking and in their actions.
We are controlled by the Holy Spirit who leads in God’s truth and into eternal victory. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. (John 16:13) People who have not accepted Christ as their Savior and received the indwelling Holy Spirit, will not know God’s truth and by default will follow the world believing Satan’s lies. People follow Satan’s lies because it appeals to their self-centered, fleshly desires.
Today walk in God’s truth even though it’s not popular with the world. Remember the Lord will stand strong with you giving him your strength to overcome evil with truth. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. (Matthew 5:11) The Lord is greatly pleased when we bring the Light into darkness because it shows our love for the Lord as we overcome adversity and stand strong for the Lord.
Prayer: Lord, give me your strength and wisdom to combat evil with truth, to bring the Light into darkness with courage and love. In Jesus’ name, Amen
