THE DEPARTURE OF TRUTH FROM THE LAND

By Rev. T. E. Deckard

The article below was written in 1993 we can clearly see the insight that G-d has given Bro. Deckard. Twelve years later our nation has been terrorized and we no longer have the freedoms that we once enjoyed. 

In Paulís first letter to Timothy, chapter 4, verses 1 and 2, he is speaking of things coming to the church in the latter day just prior to the returning of Jesus.

I Timothy4:2

2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

We are seeing this happening right before our very eyes. People today are for the most part, openly accepting abortion and homosexuality, as though these abominations had always been acceptable. The church has large numbers participating in this type of thinking.

Our nation was built, to the greater degree, of believing the Bible to be the Holy Word of G-d. A standard we watched over and tried to teach and live for many years. And now it seems that the truths we held so dearly to as a nation are now gone forever.

We have twisted the basic truths of our laws until I am sure they would look as day is to night to the ones who established them. You may, as many are doing, ask yourself, how could this ever have happened to this great nation?

It did not happen overnight, but through a long period of time. In I Timothy 4:7 we are told: ďBut refuse profane and old wives fables, and exercise thyself rather unto godliness.Ē In other words, if it is not G-dís Word do not accept it and do not twist G-dís Word to manís standards.

This is what we have done. We have gotten away from godliness and have looked more like the world looks instead of looking like the church should look. The church is talking much about revival and that they are going to see a sweeping revival of godliness across the land.

In Proverbs 23:23 we are told ďBuy the truth, and sell it not...Ē.

In John 8:32 we are told ďAnd ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.Ē

Truth of what, G-dís Holy Word. Todayís world is calling us Bible Thumpers and not in tune with the reality of living in a world that calls for killing babies in their motherís womb, homosexuality and a number of other issues where we have departed from truth. When the equal rights issue was brought forth, I believe that was the beginning of taking G-dís Word, manís laws, and twisting them out of their original context.

I believe the scripture in Isaiah 59:1-15 is speaking of the way things will be in the last days.

Isaiah 59:1-15

1 Behold, the Lordís hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

4 None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

5 They hatch cockatriceí eggs, and weave the spiderís web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper.

6 Their webs shall not become garments, neither shall they cover themselves with their works: their works are works of iniquity, and the act of violence is in their hands.

7 Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.

8 The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.

9 Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness.

10 We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noon day as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men.

11 We roar all like bears, and mourn sore like doves: we look for judgment, but there is none; for salvation, but it is far off from us.

12 For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us:

for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;

13 In transgressing and lying against the Lord, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of false hood.

14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.

15 Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the Lord saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

One can easily see the United States in these scriptures. The fourteenth verse says truth has fallen in the streets and the fifteenth verse says those of us who will not do evil will become prey to those who do.

In Deuteronomy 32:28 it says ďFor they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any under standing in them.Ē This again fits us like a glove.

In II Timothy 4:4 we are told: And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

For the most part we as the church have lost sight of truth. I said after the [Nov 1992] election the church had voted. Truth for a fact is far from us as a whole and that will prove damaging to us in time.

The church has given the new agers a green light to precede their conquest into the local churches. Even at this writing there is a ministerial alliance of a city about to let a new ager in to speak to them.

Let those that have ears to hear, hear what the L-rd is saying to the church in these dangerous times. We must stand with the truth of G-dís Word and not lean left or right. To be steadfast is the key, but remember you are what is in your heart. For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth can and does speak. Study the Word and know truth, not manís opinion, but G-dís Word, and watch Him extend His hand to protect you and yours, to deliver you out of harms way. Amen.

We are at the door of great change, in the United States, the world, and the church. Our belief in Jesus and His doctrine is about to be put to a test. The sad part of it is that much of the church will never know it because the truth has been far from them for so long that they know it not.
