Each of us daily is confronted with a variety of voices that call out for our attention - voices of seduction and pleasure, voice of anger and accusation, voices worldly is philosophies and political ideologies. They entice us with promises of freedom and wisdom to live our lives as we so choose. All these voices cry out for our submission. In this teaching Jon Touchstone discusses that contrary to these voices, there is only one Voice of genuine Truth. Real truth is supernatural, transcending ages and causes. Truth comes to us from its author – God. We as Christians must once again declare that true wisdom comes from above, and that it’s this vital truth that results in the fresh breath of God’s redemption and goodness on this dying world.
For those with eyes to see and ears to hear, it is crystal clear that our Adversary has racheted up his assault on mankind on a worldwide scale perhaps unlike anything the world has seen since Genesis 11. Actually, his target is the Word of God, as it has been since Genesis 3. In boxing, gloves are now used to lessen the injuries caused by the original bare-knuckle fighting. In the context of current events, to say that the “gloves are off” means that those opposing God, Christ, and us are going all out to hurt us—and we must meet their evil aggression with aggressive faith, i.e., trust in our great big wonderful God. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS this presentation of what God has to say about how and why we followers of Jesus Christ are persecuted, and how we should respond. Now more than ever, we Christians who know the depths of God’s Truth need one another. No doubt you’ve heard the burning coals analogy: if one is separated from the others, it rather quickly loses its heat, and its purpose. How on fire are you?
In this teaching Jon Touchstone delves into the subject of morality showing us the law of God being the standard for moral strength – what is right and what is wrong. God wants us to know what is right and then have the discipline and courage to do it.
God’s Word warns us about the danger of keeping bad company because it corrupts good morals and good character. We look at examples of how cowardice can take the place of moral courage as it did with Adam and later King Saul, and how King David showed moral courage when he deliberately chose to fight Goliath.
We hope you'll find this teaching powerful and encouraging.
