Believers’ job is to read and meditate on the Word of God day and night and do it. God said for us not to be the hearer only but to do every Word of God and apply them in our lives. Many preachers, teachers, evangelists now can be heard everywhere through media. They have television shows, radio, hundreds of books are written explaining about the Word of God in details.

There are bibles for kids, women, mothers, father, single, you name it and we can find it. There are many different interpretation of the bible that causes many denominations. We don’t need to talk about other religions, even in Christianity alone there are just too many religions. People claim that they preach the truth and others are wrong.
So, which one is the right one? Which one preaches the true gospel? The problem lies within ourselves. Many preachers preach what people love to hear. They just want to have followers and talk about what sound sweet to people’s ears. They talk about grace of God, about blessings, about money, about being successful but they left out the truth. They twisted the bible to suit people’s need. Many did not even go to bible school and they just pick a verse here and there and as long as it sounds good, they know that many people will be fooled.

Many of them don’t have relationship with God and the things that they talk about are a result of their own mind or reading a book or from people’s opinions.


If we want to know the truth, there is no other way but for us to meditate on the Word of God and have intimate relationship with God. God will reveal many secrets which are the Truth to us. God will open our eyes and we would know which preachers are speaking the Truth and which aren’t. We need a teacher and mentor who can help us and guide us, but to find the right one, we have to rely on God for He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him. He will surround us with people who can teach us.

It is on us too not to be false prophet. We should never think that we know everything and start to teach using our own mind and be found a liar. God will rebuke those who twist His Word and use it to mislead other people. He is a just God and He would punish those who mislead His people. The Word of God is pure and flawless and we just need to learn it and share it as is.

Proverbs 30:5-6

Daily prayer
Lord Jesus, I rely only on You to reveal all Your secret to me. Open my eyes to know who speaks Your truth and who aren’t that I will not be misled and I pray that I only speak the truth to others that I will not mislead them. In the Name of Jesus I pray.
