WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL:

In the Company of… Liars?

And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie. (Emphasis mine)
Revelation 22:12-15
 
What is wrong with a lie? Everything, it seems, according to the Creator of the Universe and Savior of all who repent and believe! He puts all liars in the same bucket with dogs (elsewhere translated as evildoers), sorcerers and whoremongers, and murderers and idolaters
 
The huge troubles of mankind started with a Liar and his lie being accepted by Great, Great Grandma Eve. Then it got worse! Great, Great Grandpa A. knew it was a lie, but refused to call it! He went along with the Liar, chose not to honor God’s Word, and in doing so honored the Liar’s word. A. found out too late that one cannot reject God’s Word, without accepting the word of the Liar. That entails making the Liar Lord, and the Lord a Liar! No way around it!! The fallout from this fills the earth today.
 
No room to unpack this on one brief page, may the Holy Spirit do so. (I think it supremely important, how about you?)
 
Amen,
–Pastor Don Foster, Sr.
