A Cry for Help

Psalm 12:1-2

HELP, LORD! For principled and godly people are here no more; faithfulness and the faithful vanish from among the sons of men.

2 To his neighbor each one speaks words without use or worth or truth; with flattering lips and double heart [deceitfully] they speak. AMP

This psalm of David captures the present spiritual climate and atmosphere of the church all across the globe. The love for lie and deception is growing in the heart of people who were once lover of the gospel of the truth. The concept of righteousness and justice as the core foundation of what Christianity stands for is getting weaker on a daily basis. The values of Commitment, faithfulness and loyalty as the principle and culture of the Christian faith are literally being exchanged and rejected for falsehood. David in his days faced the same challenge to the point where it almost becomes impossible for him to find a person who has the same kind of value and passion for the things of the Spirit. Mind you, one of the things that qualified David as a man of God was his commitment and love for the truth.

The scripture testify how the Lord found David as if he was busy searching for one whose entire life’s desire is towards heartbeat. The scripture says he found David a man after his heart. What is the heart of God made of? the word declares righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. where is the throne of God? the throne of God is within his heart just like his kingdom his within him.  everything known and seen as reality of the kingdom of God came from the unseen dimension of his heart. The heart of the Father is made of all the components and compartments of the truth.

The heart of God is the very life source of the truth! The Spirit of God is the Spirit of the truth.  This is the cry of David when he began to discern that people are no longer seeking the pathway of justice and equity even though they might be preaching it but the practice of it has become alien to them. He stood amazed how his own brethren could allow deception to rule their heart. He search for one who stand for righteousness but could hardly find so be began crying {moaning} for the spiritual condition of his nation. In season where truth has fallen to the ground and nobody seem to care what most we do? Let us see how Isaiah saw this same issue in his days where deception and flattering lips are the only options men desire to thrive in.

Isa 59:12-15 2 For our offenses are many in your sight, and our sins testify against us. Our offenses are ever with us, and we acknowledge our iniquities:  13 rebellion and treachery against the LORD, turning our backs on our God, fomenting oppression and revolt, uttering lies our hearts have conceived.  14 So justice is driven back, and righteousness stands at a distance; truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.  15 Truth is nowhere to be found, and whoever shuns evil becomes a prey. NIV

This season requires all believers and intercessors of truth to start crying for the help of God so the godly don’t get swallowed up in this river of falsehood.  A mindset of don’t tell the truth so you won’t be disliked or be rejected of provision by so called fellow brethren is gaining ground in the body of Christ. Many are losing their relationship with God because they’ve set their eyes on mortal men instead on God. When you make man your source you can’t but compromise your stand of the faith.

Those who stand for the truth without compromise are the tagged for rejection and persecuted, yet we know the scripture declared, you shall know the truth and the truth you know will set you free. Could it be that most Christian have allowed the spirit of bondage back into their lives, ministry and families because they are unwilling to maintain their pathway of the truth? This is a question for someone out there to answer. don’t allow the lies and deception of the enemy take control of your life. In the beatitudes, Christ declared blessed are they who morns for they shall be comforted. Do you want lasting spiritual comfort? Then start asking the Lord to grant you the eyes to see and the heart to be burdened in intercession concerning the condition of his loved Church.
