I have a long history going back 40+ years of experience in what we call Christianity. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have never denied the Lord. There are people who I went to elementary school, Jr. high school and high school with, which can attest to the fact that I witnessed to other kids about Jesus Christ many times. I had no problem making a fool out of myself and being rejected by others from my youth until now; seven children and five grandchildren later. I am not saying that I haven’t sinned in my life, I committed sins that I am not proud of, but I never denied the Lord despite the false teachings and many different doctrines I have been exposed to, and experienced the fruit of over the last 40+ years.
But there came a time in which there was a major pivot in my life, a water shed season, at the time I didn’t even believe that I could survive it, I thought I would surely die. During this season the Lord gave me certain, sure, solid foundational truth. During this season I would literally tremble as I read the scriptures as the Holy Spirit brought these things to life and establish me in these truths. I am sure those who despise my image shriek when I say this, but my great treasure that I value is the fear of God, the beginning of knowledge and wisdom. There are many people who might read what I have got to say and feel condemned or challenged, their image is different than mine, their judgement is different than mine, we are not alike, we have different things that trouble us, that concern us.
Perhaps the best place to start is to look a little closer at the essence, the foundation of what is Christ, in order to understand the things that really matter. As the scripture say, “Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth, The Life”, so to know Jesus Christ is to know Thy Way, The Truth and The Life!
