Stand

Stand up for yourself.
Stand up for what’s right.
Stand for religious freedom.
Stand for truth.
Stand for freedom.
Stand for your rights.

These are quotes that land on every blog, Facebook, song, movie, book, TV show and social media outlet out there! But what are these words saying? Who are they about?
People stand up for themselves all the time. If everyone does this, does it not result in a very self-initiated society? This is quoted like its an epiphany! Some wise, well educated, time tested action one learns as they become who they are “meant” to be.

Or standing for “religious freedom”. Who’s idea of religious? Or freedom? I thought the whole idea of “religion” was what Yeshua (Jesus), came to abolish? Freedom? Lets see, If the Son of God has set you free, then you are free indeed!

Freedom to speak and say whatever any human deems as worth saying? I mean that is what most people think “free speech” is about. Its been achieved, this “free speech”, and cut up families, friends, marriages, and united dark minds and void hearts the world over! Great idea.

As for what’s right and truth, again…by who’s definition of right and truth? If its each individual’s self decided right and truth, again this seems to be in high fashion with no danger of imploding. Now a days what’s right and truth is universally accepted as each man to his own. Chaos. I can’t over state the emphasis. Our children are confused. This turns into “mental illness” and diseases defined by medical “professionals” each with their own idea of what’s right and true.

Where does one find the solid foundation of right and true? We must tolerate all religions in accordance with what’s right and true for them. This is this ages new definition of love. Politics too! Lawyers? Pimps? Drug companies? Cults? (Isn’t a cult just another religion?) Who gets the final say? To say “that’s untrue, not right”?

Some criminals think they are just standing up for themselves, or what’s right and true to them! I know people who have lied to kingdom come about others and now they stand up for themselves against those they have slandered by cutting them off. They stand up for themselves based on lies! But hey, its right and true to them, right? I mean isn’t this an oxymoron? If its a lie, how can it be true? A lie by definition is still known as something untrue, right?

Where does this end? Maybe the better question is how did all this begin?

They say America was built on “religious freedom”. No, America was built on the backs of those who were fleeing religion! A church and organization who was trying to control how people viewed, accessed, and thought about God. Seems reasonable given our history doesn’t it? The things people have done under the heading “God has willed it.”; is downright appalling. So someone it seems needs to pull the proverbial “plug” on what God will or won’t tell someone to do, right? I mean God wouldn’t some down and consider the world saved by Himself being killed by the very people He created to love! No, He wouldn’t send His people into a territory to kill everyone including the animals and children! Surely if there’s a God, the tolerance of His nature would “live and let live”? People say they love, with no actions to prove it. God does this everyday, right? I mean the world spins, people live, love, work, play, lie, cheat, steal, give, support, hold, manipulate, fight, kill, make babies, teach, raise children, sing, dance, drink, do drugs, protest, purpose, marry, die, fight diseases, search for cures and answers, study, learn, educate, fight crime, invent, think, dream, and pray; and it never seems to change. So God must be the most tolerant of any Being known in any timeline! The answer is both yes and no. (Ever notice that the answer is both yes and no to almost every question concerning God?) Yes, He is the most tolerant Being ever! No, He does not tolerate evil. The confusion is born in the word tolerate. How its perceived by definition. (Again everyone perceives things differently) What is the actual definition of tolerance? I Googled: the definition of tolerance. In the drop box it gave me these choices to select:

The definition of tolerance for:
Children
Physiologist
Physicians
Boys
Girls
Marriage
Religion
Drugs
Hate
Crime
Police
Criminal investigations
Teachers
Teens (with multiple attachments ie: pregnancy, run-aways, behavior and many more)
And…many more…

My mouth dropped! You mean we are teaching that there’s actually a different definition of tolerance for every subject under the sun?? No wonder its so hard to keep up with truth!

This is just one example of the problem with so many different ideas of right and truth the way man-kind is capable of handling it. If I get cross-eyed just trying to decide which computer generated (by man) definition of tolerance to choose as the right one, imagine someone with no passion for words and their real meanings! I love to study words and enjoy digging to get to the “bone marrow” of where they originated and what they mean. Most people do not. Most people don’t have time to get there! At least not via the internet. (Which is considered the “fastest” means of information) Life is moving so fast these days, most of us go to bed unable to remember 1/2 of what the day presented to us. Most of us are so tired from doing just what we had to to survive; the concern for what is the pith of right and truth gets lost as our eye-lids drop from exhaustion.

Hmmmm….there’s something here, the cusp of some huge unveiling. Could it be? Could it be that busyness, even seemingly purposeful busyness is the key to apathy? If so, its brilliant, and it works!

So what do we stand on? Up for? What are we really supposed to stand for? Who decides? What version of right or truth is the “bottom line”, “buck stops here”, “this far and no further” do we believe? I pray as this series continues, The Right and The Truth will show us. That’s right, the Truth is a Person! The Right is too! May He be the only influence upon my heart and mind as I type these posts. May He be the only definition we find. Then and only then can we stand upon the wisdom we seek.

As always I leave off with the Final Word. 🙂

Psalms 11:7
For Adonai (the Lord) is righteous; He loves righteousness; the upright will see His face.

Psalms 12:3-4
May Adonai cut off all flattering lips and the tongue that speaks so proudly, those who say, “By our tongues, we will prevail; our lips are with us. Who can master us?”

Psalms 14:1
Fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They deal corruptly, their deeds are vile, not one does what is right.

Psalms 40:4-10
How blessed is the man who trust in Adonai and does not look to the arrogant or to those who rely on things that are false.
How much You have done, Adonai my God! Your wonders and Your thoughts towards us – none can compare with You! I would proclaim them, I would speak about them; but there’s too much to tell!
Sacrifices and grain offerings You don’t want; burnt offerings You don’t demand. Instead, You have given me open ears; so then I said, “Here I am! I’m coming! In the scroll and the book it is written about me. Doing Your will, my God, is my joy; Your Torah (Law) is in my inmost being. I have proclaimed what is right in the great assembly; I did not restrain my lips, Adonai, as You know. I did not hide You righteousness in my heart but declared Your faithfulness and salvation; I did not conceal Your grace and truth from the great assembly.”

John 14:6 – Yeshua (Jesus) speaking
Yeshua said, “I AM the Way – and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through Me.

1John 5:20
And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us discernment, so that we may know who is genuine; moreover, we are united with the One who is genuine, united with His Son Yeshua the Messiah. He is the genuine God and eternal Life.

Jude 1:24+25
Now, to the One who can keep you from falling and set you (make you stand) without defect and full of joy in the presence of His Sh’khinah (Glory) – to God alone, our Deliverer, through Yeshua the Messiah, our Lord – be glory, majesty, power and authority before all time, now and forever.

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
