Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth
By Ken L Birks

© 2018 Straight Arrow Ministries


Beguiled by the enemy, truth in the streets falls and disappears.
With seeds of deception sown, the church cries out in tears.
As truth disappears, darkness settles across the globe.
Casting his spells of deception, the world lies in his sway.
False teaching runs rampant, as the enemy has his say.

Casting off the spells of darkness, the Church rises in relief
Called to be the pillar and ground of all truth, she rises in belief.
Believing that all Scripture is inspired by God, she mends.
Called to rightly divide the word of truth, she makes amends.
As she repents, she returns to her foundation to rebuild.

With no other foundation to build upon, she rightly divides.
Immersing herself in the elementary principles, she presides.
Line upon line, here a little, there a little, she speaks with truth.
No longer caught in self-deception, she speaks truth in love.
With divine harmony of revelation in play, she comes alive.

Fully immersed in the unction of the Spirit, she teaches, reaffirmed.
With insight into riddles, and mysteries, deeper truths are discerned.
With her thinking process submitted to the word, she rightly divides.
As the word takes precedence over the Spirit, in truth, she delivers
Knowing teachers receive a stricter judgment, she builds the pillars.

With the pillars of truth being built, light begins to dispel the darkness.
The glory of the Father begins to rise upon His people as truth increases.
Not placating for the sake of relevancy, truth is restored in the streets.
As truth restores, light penetrates those once caught in aimlessness.
Without blinders, multitudes see the light, now penetrating the darkness.
