The truth shall set you free

John 8:32

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

In the past, we have seen many an example of God revealing the truth to his people, the Church, who have then been instrumental in progressing these truths throughout the nation.  Lately, however, I have been faced with the uncomfortable fact that God is once again revealing the truth to many people throughout the world, while his Church remains in darkness.

What does that mean for the Church?  I am reminded of the scripture that says, “He came into the world, but his own did not receive him”.  There are not many examples in the Bible where turns his back on his own people, but there are some.  Are we seeing this now?

An unprecedented evil is taking place in our world just now and largely, God’s people are totally blind to it.  Instead, God is taking an unusual step of revealing his truth to people who are not his own.

In one sense, for the Church, this horrifies me, while it excites me that a sovereign God is revealing the truth to millions who are not of his Church.  These millions will become his Church.  We are seeing the glowing embers of a mighty movement of God.  God is taking the dry bones and breathing life into them.  What an exciting time to be alive.
