THE LOVE of the TRUTH

BY: RAY PRINZING

 

 

“Because they received not the love of truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” (2 Thess. 2:10-11)

 

 

Two ways are set before us here: receiving the love of the truth to work into us into salvation; or, receiving a strong delusion, literally, an inworking delusion, so that we believe a lie. Interestingly enough, God sends them both. He brings forth vessels of mercy, and vessels of wrath.

 

 

Those who refuse, who receive not the love of the truth, in turn will receive an inworking error, and then have to pass through a judgment to be purged of that error. This is learning the lesson the hard way, having to go through a process of correctional chastening, until they learn that it is far better to receive the love of the truth. Yet God retains sovereign control over this entire process. “I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them, because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before Mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.” (Isa. 66:4) God knows exactly which inworking delusion will subdue and teach that it is an evil and bitter thing to forsake the way of the Lord.

 

 

There is a love to be received along with the truth, for knowledge alone will not hold you. When the vision tarries you soon become entangled in all sorts of strange diversions, and a prey for those spoken of in Daniel 11:14, “the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision – as if they were able to fulfill it, but they shall fail.”

 

 

Those who do not have a love for the truth will exalt themselves and set about to establish the vision –– as if they were able to fulfill it, but they shall fail.

 

 

When you have a LOVE FOR THE TRUTH you will not want to see any self-effort destroy, mar, or try to fulfill it after the flesh. You will wait with an eye single to God knowing He will fulfill His Word. “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” (Ps. 119:165)
