This week He’s seen fit to completely change our weekly messages to a new topic, something that I’ve been pondering for several days. Actually, it’s a new revelation that I’ve been pondering, which I’m not sure my mind has absorbed just yet. It’s the topic of lies and what we ultimately “choose” to believe.

Lies told to us is something I’ve continually been thinking about since late March (due to when I personally and our ministry came under attack). Yet it’s this new revelation that has me yearning to fully understand the impact of this new truth in order to share it with all of you precious fellowship members, His brides.

Hopefully, He will help me explain this to you well enough so you’ll be able to ponder it in your heart too—and in doing so I’ll be able to not only grasp it but embrace its truth.

The truth is, there are lies being told everywhere, and, they’re getting more and more rampant. What’s surprising to me is that lies are becoming almost expected, almost a “given” and in some ways, even tolerated and encouraged. This is even occurring in the lives of “Christians” because some rationalize or lie to themselves that something is the truth, when in fact, in FACT, it’s a lie.

You may have experienced this in your own life. Your EH “earthy husband” may have lied to you, and likewise lied to himself, like saying he never loved you and later, will even admit it was a lie and he knew it when he was saying it. I can’t tell you how many RMTs “Restored Marriage Testimonies,” say that very same thing.

You may also have experienced lies being told about you. Many share how their EH and OW “other woman” go to court and their lies are believed in order for a divorce or custody verdict to go through. Have you ever experienced this? And no matter how much you try to convince others it’s a lie— people choose to believe something that is so horribly false, so wrong, leaving you baffled.

That’s one reason why the Lord showed us how to live when He says in 1 Peter 2:21–23 “For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps . . . and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him (God) who judges righteously.” It also says He “opened not His mouth in defense.” And Isaiah 53:7—“He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth; like a lamb that is led to slaughter, and like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, so He did not open His mouth.”

Those who persecuted Him knew He’d respond in this way. Knowing that He wouldn’t fight, He wouldn’t try to defend Himself or set the record straight. Instead, He chose to trust God had a plan, a purpose and thank GOD He did or where would we all be? And that is why I always choose to trust God’s plan by following His example. Though I’d love to set the record straight, unless someone asks, asks in a way I know they are honestly asking and searching for the truth (Matt. 7:7), I do not open my mouth in any defense.

As wonderful as this thought is, it’s not the revelation I’ve been trying to absorb. It’s the groundwork or foundation and something I think we all need to ponder because THIS principle, not opening our mouths in defense, is something so foreign, it’s even an absurdity amongst believers. So let’s stop and Selah on this thought to allow it to really absorb into our hearts and marrow.

  1. Not opening your mouth in your defense is the most difficult part I believe. Butt we need to keep entrusting ourselves to Him. And remember how did the Lord react? What did He do? He is our example and by being His bride we can walk hand in hand with Him as He showers us with love as we surrender the situation to Him to take care of 💗

    1. Those are great questions, Atarah: “How did the Lord react?” What did He do?”

      I’ve had to ask myself those very questions time and again in the midst of personal suffering, and what I’ve been led to remember over and over again is that when faced with the most blinding pain, false accusations, blatant disrespect, cruel mocking, hatred, scorn, and dehumanizing treatment, Jesus prayed for them. He begged His Father to “forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” (Luke 23:34)

      When I imitate Him in this, my heart immediately stops breaking for myself and begins to break for the one hurting me.

      I remember the moment I first saw myself clearly – the mistakes I’d made and the harm I’d caused myself and the people I love most, the pain I’d caused my Beloved HH (because He loves me!). I was so unaware at the time.

      Suddenly I find myself grieving not my own pain, but the heartache and remorse I know this beloved child of God will feel when He reveals Himself, reveals truth, to them. And then? I remember His grace in the midst of my deepest remorse and am reminded that He can make all things new! He hasn’t given up on me and won’t give up on them. That is cause for celebration!

      Thank you for reminding me of His example, a path I myself can and have walked with Him which takes me all the way from pain and indignation to compassion, hope, and rejoicing!
