The TRUTH be KNOWN

Right from the start… I am NOT (I REPEAT, I am NOT) saying “anything bad” about Pastor Cory Langdon (the current pastor of the Salem Pentecostal Church in Cottlesville, New World Island, Newfoundland, Canada)!!!

We had him here for supper one night and in discussing doctrine… he said that he believed that the parts that we differ on God would make known the TRUTH regarding those parts…

I, too, believe this for this is Biblical…

People may not always receive the TRUTH (because of pride, jealously, fear, the love of unrighteousness, etc.) but God ALWAYS makes the TRUTH known to BE known!!!

Even though Pastor Langdon and I BOTH agree on the FACT that God’s people NEED to keep the Lord’s Day holy… he thinks that I am preaching that FACT too much (or something)…

So, just before he started preaching, one Sunday morning, he relayed an incident that he figured was God’s way of making the TRUTH known to him, the church, and to me; the “truth” that God don’t mind His people working on Sunday…

For some background,… He is currently trying to sell his house in Nova Scotia… And he told how he started with one realtor and told a story about how he recently ended up with another one… and he shared some events surrounding that incident (and of two potential buyers) that he, AND I, BELIEVE shows God’s hand in it…

The story ended up with an ex-pastor, turned realtor, (on THAT day; the Sunday he told the story) giving an open-house (later that evening… to TWO perspective buyers) of his house ON that Sunday…

Again, HE told this story TO convince the people (including, and especially, me) that THIS was okay in God’s eyes (because he honestly thought that AND… THOUGHT that he was going to end up selling his house TO one of the two ‘Sunday-viewing’ house seekers).

Now… even though it was an ex-pastor (i.e., someone who, “put his hand to the plow and then looks back,” and is, therefore, according to Luke 9:62, “not fit for the Kingdom of God,”)… AND… even though it went completely contrary to what God had already told me regarding working on Sunday… I COULD NOT deny the FACT that God’s hand WAS in the circumstances surrounding his whole story!!!

And, for a short while, I was somewhat troubled by the ‘seemingly’ contradiction!!!

But THEN I prayed…

I prayed, “Lord, I KNOW what You have told me… but, I also KNOW that Your hand WAS, undoubtedly, in that story!!! And it was, without a doubt, in it for a reason; for the TRUTH to be made KNOWN (CONFIRMED,  for one side)… so, I pray that IF the Pastor is right then let it be that he sells his house through that ex-pastor TO one of those two who viewed the house on that Sunday…

However, IF You want me to continue calling Your people to STOP WORKING ON SUNDAY… then prevent that house from being sold to either of those two people… who viewed the house on that Sunday!!!

And, later that day, I told Krystal (my wonderful wife) what I had prayed…

And,… THAT was back around the middle of November… and he NEVER sold his house to EITHER of those two people!!!

So, I believe that God IS telling YOU… the TRUTH… Pastor Langdon!!!

That He IS calling His people to, “turn from ALL of their FALSE god and IDOLS AND to STOP WORKING ON SUNDAY… or else…!!!”

Or else… expect MORE WARNINGS,… MORE “big yellow signs,”… MORE storms,… MORE lightning bolts, and MORE tearing down of altars, etc.!!!
