Truth is Fallen in the Street!
by David J. Stewart
"And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter." -Isaiah 59:14
Christians are not supposed to remain silent about apostasy. This is not the right way. The Lord tells us in Isaiah 59:14 that TRUTH IS FALLEN IN THE STREETS, and we are to pick it up again. We are to tell the truth, in season and out of season, when popular or unpopular, when legal or outlawed. He that hath an ear to hear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto him. We are not responsible for the results, we are just commanded to tell the truth. 1st Corinthians 3:6,7 tells us that it is GOD ALONE that gives the increase in souls reached for Christ... "I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase." Our duty as Christians is to preach the truth, and trust the Holy Spirit to do the rest. We cannot force anyone to repent and do the right thing.
Truth is fallen in the streets of America! The truth has few friends these days. Few people care anymore about the blatant evils happening in Washington D.C., especially in The White House. It couldn't be more obvious that the Bush Administration orchestrated the 911 attacks. Would you just sit there for 5 minutes if you were the captain and chief, and one of your men just told you your nation was under attack? And what about Presidential Directive W199-eye Mr. Bush? Why did you protect the suspect terrorists BEFORE 911? Even more bizarre is the assassination of former FBI Deputy Director, John O'Neill. Truth is fallen in the street!
Few Americans are concerned anymore about the moral decay of our nation. The truth that homosexuality is a vile and filthy sin has fallen in the streets! The truth that abortion is cold-blooded murder has fallen in the streets! The truth that immodestly dressed whorish woman destroy marriages has fallen in the streets! The truth that drunkenness is a sin has fallen into the streets of America! The truth has fallen into the street, and there are few willing to pick it up!
Few believers today care about the Bible, having traded in their trustworthy King James Bible for a corrupt modern version, such as the damnable New International Version (NIV), which brutally attacks the Godhead and deity of Jesus Christ. Why would anyone use the NIV? Yet, the NIV is by far the most popular Bible version on the market today. Sad. So sad! Most Christians have exchanged their Sword for a butter-knife! Truth is fallen in the street!
Few pastors and preachers are willing to preach against sin anymore. Here's a pastor of 10,000 people every Sunday, who calls the murdering of babies, a "minor concern" in his church. Truth has fallen into the streets! Christianity Today magazine gives Harry Potter's witchcraft positive reviews, recommending it to parents for their kids in an article titled, Why We Like Harry Potter. The truth has fallen into the street that all witchcraft is of the Devil!
Apostate pastors, pastor's wives, and professed Christian workers all across America are recommending divorce as an answer to marriage problems. The truth that divorce is a rotten sin has fallen into the streets of America! Divorce is selfish, self-centered, and self-righteous! It also makes you a dirty thieving liar, because you made a promise on your wedding day... "For better, for worse; 'til death do us part." You are guilty in God's eyes. Women especially, frequently write me, attempting to justify their sin of divorce, but they cannot. The Bible stands firm against them... "Surely as a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD" (Jeremiah 3:20). "...Let not the wife depart from her husband" (1st Corinthians 7:10). Truth is fallen into the street!
Truth has fallen into the streets concerning education. America's children are being brainwashed that they evolved from animals; instead of being lovingly formed by a Divine Creator (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-3). Evolution is of the Devil. The missing link will never be found because it DOESN'T exist! If men came from apes, then why are there still apes? It's common sense folks. Evolution is the religion of the atheist and the humanist. There is NOT one conclusive proof of evolution; but here's proof that evolution is a hoax. Truth is fallen in the street!
Instead of searching the Scriptures as Jesus commanded in John 5:39, people today are searching the TV. Oprah Winfrey draws well over 15,000,000 viewers a day to her heathen show. She propagates a damnable New Age gospel of self, sin, and Satanic influences. Please read, The Holy Spirit and Jesus to learn more about Oprah and her New Age "experts." By the way, Oprah has openly denied that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to heaven. Truth has fallen into the street!
All across the world, truth is fallen into the street! Every generation must rediscover the truth for itself. Oh, that men would repent and seek the Lord! The truth has always been unpopular, twisted, shunned, and ignored--until it was too late. 1,517 people aboard the sinking Titanic froze to death in the icy waters of the North Atlantic Sea. There weren't enough lifeboats. Do you think people would ever learn? No, in 1994, the Estonia ship sunk into the Baltic Sea, drowning 852 people. Again, there weren't adequate lifeboats. It is sadly true that history always repeats itself. History is plagued with example after example of disasters which happened because someone ignored the truth.
Tragically, America today is just like the Titanic. We are rearranging the deck chairs up on deck, while there's a gapping tear in the hull, and we are sinking into a moral cesspool of iniquity. America is NOT going to be salvaged by education, reformation, or rehabilitation--we need to repent and turn back to God!!! Truth is fallen in the street!
