We are Sons of the Truth
Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying: “Arise go to Nineveh that great city, and cry against it, for their wickedness is come up before me”.
Amittai, the name of the father of Prophet Jonah comes under our focus today.
The name Amittai in Hebrew means “my truth or the truth of the Lord”.
God is truth personified.
The bible testifies that, “He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all His ways are judgement: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He”. (Deut.32:4)
It further confirms that “the truthful lip shall be established forever. But a lying tongue is but for a moment” (Proverb 12:19).
God’s call to Jonah and to all His children is to the truth. Jonah is well acquainted with the word of God – the truth, for God’s servant should be sons of truth. Jonah knew the voice of the Lord from that of a stranger.
The general opinion is that everyone has his own truth, but truth outside of God is no truth. Men’s words are but wind, but God’s words are substance. We become like Him as we grow in His word. Our ultimate aim is to be like Him.
Truth is soul’s freedom from modern age of deception. Our Lord Jesus said “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free” (John 8:32). As children of God we are not expected to be caught in the web of deception of this age but to reprove it, by speaking “the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15a).
We are called to go into the world to share God’s gospel of truth. (Mark 16:15) It is a mandate to His children of truth to help deliver the world from the lies and deceptions of Satan.
We are called primarily, like Jonah to share God’s truth to modern cities of Nineveh around us.
Today, as you step out remember you are called to the truth. Trust the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth.
Memory Verse: But he that doeth truth cometh to light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (John 3:21)
Prayer: I pray that the Holy Spirit will continually lead me into all truth.
