Rejection, a Tell Tale Sign!

TRUTH: “For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. You have done a foolish thing, and from now on you will be at war,”  2 Chronicles 16:9.

The “eyes of the Lord” are looking for those who embrace the truth – all of the truth. Jerusalem not only rejected all of the TRUTH, but crucified it.  Just what is it about TRUTH that makes it so unpalatable? It is hidden agenda. The rejection of TRUTH reveals hidden agenda. It is then just a matter of discerning what that hidden agenda is. Both Biblically and experientially, even to the searching of our own hearts, the root problem is the desire for preeminence and center stage, 3 John 9.   The root cause is feeling “less than,” or in other words, an identity crisis.  This is the crisis that made the couple in the Garden of Eden vulnerable to the serpent’s temptation to eat the wrong stuff in order to be “like God.”

The Remedy for “less than” is the Revelation of The Cross. This is the place where we discover the redefined love of God, ie.e. the redefined “agape” of God.

That is the foundation stone of “more than,” Romans 8:37.  It is there, and only there, where hidden agendas have any chance of being taken captive.

Of course it is possible to be rejected for communicating error, but it is just as possible, and perhaps even more so, for communicating TRUTH.  The history of what’s been calling itself “church” (including “reformation church,” “cutting edge church,” and even “revival church”) is all proof enough of the ongoing rejection of TRUTH. All of these brands of “church” have mud on their feet from where they have been. It is right here that the need for foot washing comes into its most important revelation.

Rejection of Truth tells tales on hidden agendas.

    This is so good. Truth is hard to come by. We need to be vigilant about what comes to us as “truth.”
