Why Won’t You Tell the Truth?

I just told a loved one the truth. It was hard to tell. I am sure it was harder to hear. See, I quoted scripture from the Bible and delivered a hard message. I am gifted in this. I am called to speak the truth even in the face of rejection, hatred, scorn, gossip, and more. Some people believe modern day prophets are to go around predicting prosperity, patting people on the back, and making people feel good about themselves. I have studied the Bible enough to know prophets in the Old Testament were called to say the tough stuff.

They spoke warnings, they foretold of hard things to come, they admonished people to get their acts together. How do you think people felt about them? How do you think people will feel about you when you tell the truth? Tonight I had the good fortune of the listener choosing to listen without vengeance. I have not always had that outcome. No matter the outcome, I love the Lord more than anyone or anything. So I will continue to speak the truth. How about you?

Mic 3:5  “Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.”
