|One of the most godly men, a great teacher, warned years ago against "trafficking in unfelt truths." He meant by it that a Christian may believe
certain truths, accept them, speak of them, and even teach them to others, without knowing the power of these truths in a practical way in his own life. The warning is indeed much needed. Thousands of believers are in this sad condition. It needs a constant watchfulness not to fall into this snare. It means self-judgment and self-denial. The apostle Paul warns us of this grave danger. Speaking of the Christian's race to obtain, he wrote, "But I
keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means,
when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway." (1Cor 9:27) Holding truths, speaking or preaching about them to others, and not having these truths govern our walk and conduct is an evil thing.
Much is being said at the present time about the Coming of our Lord Jesus.
Prophetic truths are being graciously revived. The midnight cry, "Behold the Bridegroom cometh" is heard everywhere and many believe in His imminent coming. But prophetic truths are especially given to discipline us, so that we walk soberly, righteously and godly in this present age. If we believe
in His coming we must also live in the power of this truth. It demands separation from the world. For a person to profess a belief in the Blessed
Hope of His coming and enjoy himself with the world and to have fellowship with the works of darkness is a betrayal of the truth, a stumbling block to others.
May God keep us from the unholy traffic in unfelt truths. It is the common danger of the Last Days. The supreme testimony to the Truth is a
separated life. May the Lord in the riches of His Grace constantly give to
all His people the promised power to walk in the truth.
