Why do people hate truth? Or better still why do we Christians hate to hear the truth from the mouth of the true prophets of God. Even Jesus Christ says of himself in the book of John 14:6 that, “I am the way and the truth……..”
Therefore truth is Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. Shall truth fail to keep her word? Therefore, in the book of 1 King 22:1-40,something happened there that will expose us to believe and trust the word of God.
Three years after the great battle with Ben-hadad, Ahab proposed to Jehoshaphat, king of Judah, that they should go up against Ramoth-Gilead to do battle again with Ben-hadad. Jehoshaphat agreed, but suggested that inquiry should be first made “at the word of Jehovah.” Ahab’s 400 prophets approved of the expedition; but Jehoshaphat, still dissatisfied, asked if there was no other prophet besides the four hundred that had appeared, and they informed him of Micaiah. He was sent for from prison, where he had been confined, probably on account of some prediction disagreeable to Ahab; and he condemned the expedition, and prophesied that it would end, as it did, in disaster.
Four hundred false prophets have told King Ahab the lies he wanted to hear but I called prophet Micaiah prophet401, he was never afraid to tell the king the truth even in the face of death.
Therefore, what are the reasons why Christians nowadays refused to trust the word of God spoken to them directly or through the mouth of the prophets:
- Sin is the number one factor that makes people not to believe the voice of the lord. A sinful life can not trust the voice of the lord.
- Again, people fail to trust the word of God has a result of there status. They sometimes look down on the messenger of God has a nobody and thus failed to believe them
- Nowadays false prophets have taken over the entire place. Jeremiah 23:21 says “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran:I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied”. Therefore, God said he will surely go against them in the book of Jeremiah 23:30-32
- One without the holy spirit will definitely hate truth from the lord. We should always ask God for the holy spirit to understand the true importance of the word of God
The truth is considered hatred by those who hate the truth. Most people despise and hate the truth. Jesus Christ brought truth into the world and they crucified Him. The Bible is truth (John 17:17). Jesus is the truth (John 14:6). The Holy Spirit is truth (John 15:29). Jesus taught in John 4:24 that God the Father can only be worshipped in spirit and truth. The truth is very important, and the very reason for which Christ came into the world. John 18:37, “…To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” The truth is that Jesus is the Son of God, the Christ, and only by faith in His name can anyone have their sins forgiven and obtain eternal life (John 20:31).
Therefore, are you willing to accept the truth today or you still want to continue with your Hate of the truth?
