To Whom It May Concern

John 18


When Pilate asked Jesus if He was a king, Jesus said, “You are right in saying I am a king.  In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify of the truth”.


At a certain point in history, when the whole world was missing the truth, Jesus steps in to declare it—to right the world again.  Very few got it, and those that did were a little slow in doing so.  Anyone besides me, a little slow in getting it?


It is not really until you see and understand the truth that you become so aware of the lies from every source imaginable that keep us from it.  Until you see and understand the truth, you are persuaded to believe that lies are the truth.  


Exactly ‘how’ I am not yet sure, but the ‘what’ I believe I am becoming more sure of.  Somehow, by any means afforded, I will testify of the truth.  I will expose the lies that keep us from the life that Jesus came to proclaim we could have.  For this reason, I believe that we have been permitted to remain in the world.    


A personal note:

To the few who regularly read what I write, I will take this opportunity to say what an encouragement you are to me by the things you write.  We may not be reaching the multitude here, but we are hopefully an encouragement to each other.  As we see the day approaching, I believe we are doing what the writer of Hebrews encouraged us to do. 


Heb 10:24-25

24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. 25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
