TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
It is time for the big exchange…to exchange the lie for the truth. Take those things that the world calls “good” and find the truth in God’s Word for the lie of the world. The Holy Spirit is on your side and will guide you into all truth.
TRADING TRUTH FOR A LIE
Reality TV is anything but real. In this generation that is exchanging truth for a lie and good for evil, drama is also being swapped for reality and being labeled as “good.”
A good example is Bruce Jenner, an Olympic decathlon hero, exchanging his male body for breasts and a feminized face. With it, he exchanged the name Bruce for “Caitlyn,” a name that means “purity.”
Why? Jenner told Vanity Fair magazine, a prophetic “circus of worthlessness,” that as Bruce, he was always telling lies, but as Caitlyn, he doesn’t have any lies. Mind you, he says this while trying to keep his male genitalia from spilling out of his form-fitting satin corset and nobody questions it! Nobody points out how ridiculous the whole notion is because selfish drama is celebrated as “courageous” and “authentic” in American pop culture.
What’s wrong with this? The truth is, there are no lies with what he says if you simply reverse the meaning of the word “truth” and the meaning of the word “lie.” The book of Romans tells us about people who do this, and apparently, Paul was talking about us.
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator.
– Romans 1:25
Today, anything dramatic that makes you feel good through selfish ambition is called “good” and will be celebrated even if it is destructive. However, it is not celebrated in heaven.
Now, I am not bothered by Jenner’s lifestyle or his decisions about his own body. He will stand before God and answer for that on his own. It’s really none of my business. I feel no need to protest him, to be mean or anything other than respectful if I ever meet him.
I do, however, object to the evil of the mandate that comes from society and the media that demands I call his lifestyle pure. God demands I do the opposite. I would much rather be on God’s side than on the side of Hollywood. Are you on the side of right?
…who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
– Romans 1:32
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO HATE THE SIN, BUT LOVE THE SINNER. THEY WILL KNOW WE ARE CHRISTIANS BY OUR LOVE. SHOW GOD’S LOVE BY REFUSING TO APPROVE OF EVIL. REPLACE IT WITH GOOD.
