TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 7/24/2023
John 7:24 – “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.”
The Lord is a righteous judge, and we are made in His likeness. In the culture of tolerance and “being nice,” the body of Christ must remember in whose image we are made. We are a needed voice of righteous judgment that defines according to God’s word what is good and what is evil. It’s easy to judge and condemn a person according to their appearance. It takes the Holy Spirit to discern what got them where they are and call them out of it. Today, be the voice that stands up for truth and pronounce the verdict of righteousness over the lost and rebellious.
Declaration: I will not be silence by the noise around me. I will speak the truth of God in this dark day.
ONLY ONE WAY LEADS TO LIFE
To many people, the truth is offensive. “But Pastor Troy, if Jesus was perfect and what He said was 100 percent truth, why did He offend so many people in the Bible and why do His words still offend people today?”
Simple: the problem was on the receiving end, not the giving end. Jesus is not the problem. You and I are the problem because our hearts reject truth when it’s not convenient or doesn’t benefit us. Look at the Pharisees who were offended that Jesus and the disciples weren’t following their man-made law of washing their hands before supper.
Then the disciples came to Him and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this?” – Matthew 15:12
The disciples seem distressed, but they’re about to get their minds blown when Jesus replies:
“Every plant that My Heavenly Father has not planted will be pulled up by the roots. Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into the pit.” – Matthew 15:13
BOOM! No remorse. No apologies. Let me tell you, calling the religious leaders “blind” and instructing people to “leave them” could have turned into an area of offense – a stumbling block for those listening because Jesus is supposed to be all nicey nice, right?
Wrong. Jesus isn’t about tickling ears and telling you what you want to hear. His Word is truth and truth divides right from wrong. Only one way leads to life.
