Hear the Matter started just over a year and a half ago. We are happy that it has been so widely received. Thank you to all that have liked, commented and shared on all the various social media platforms and WordPress itself. Here is a map of all the places that regularly hit the website.
I realize not everyone will agree with everything that is written on Hear the Matter, and that is a good thing. For years I sat absorbing information in church, some wrong, some right, but never truly searching if the things I was being taught were true. It was not until I decided to let the scriptures speak for themselves that I realized how far we have strayed from the truth. For example, do you know what Paul is talking about in the following passage, and who Jannes and Jambres are that opposed Moses?
2Ti 3:1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.
2Ti 3:2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
2Ti 3:3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good,
2Ti 3:4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,
2Ti 3:5 having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.
2Ti 3:6 For among them are those who creep into households and capture weak women, burdened with sins and led astray by various passions,
2Ti 3:7 always learning and never able to arrive at a knowledge of the truth.
2Ti 3:8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so these men also oppose the truth, men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith.
2Ti 3:9 But they will not get very far, for their folly will be plain to all, as was that of those two men.
I encourage everyone to search the scriptures daily to see if the matters, discussed at Hear the Matter, are true. I certainly don’t have all the answers, but the Messiah says He will send the Holy Spirit of Truth to those who are obedient.
Joh 14:15 “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.
Joh 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever,
Joh 14:17 even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.
Joh 14:18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.
Joh 14:19 Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live.
Joh 14:20 In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
Joh 14:21 Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”
Joh 14:22 Judas (not Iscariot) said to him, “Lord, how is it that you will manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?”
Joh 14:23 Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
Joh 14:24 Whoever does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not mine but the Father’s who sent me.
We have started a YouTube channel to hopefully one day be able to discuss some of the matters brought forth at Hear the Matter in video format. It’s just an idea currently, but it will help to have subscribers to the channel.
