Three Dark Truths–Part One

 

          A change agent’s veneer of smooth words and flattering speech does not fool the God of heaven. All the sheepskin in the world cannot camouflage this dreamer’s true self before God. All things are naked and open to His eyes (Hebrews 4:13). According to Jude 9, these false teachers “speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.” Woe to them (Jude 10).

          Behind the façade of their spiritual piety are three dark truths. These are:

          A change agent is a blasphemer. The Greek verb blasphemeo in this verse is translated “speak evil”. Because the present active indicative conjugation of this verb is used by the Holy Spirit through Jude’s quill, a continuous state of being is what He is declaring to be true.

          One way a dreamer’s arrogance and irreverence can be clearly seen is in his smug attitude of “If I do not know it, it is not worth knowing.” Should you dare to disagree with his high opinion of himself and his knowledge, you need to be prepared to be on the receiving end of an angry spiritual hog as he tramples spiritual pearls under his feet and seeks to tear you in pieces (Matthew 7:6).
