The People of Truth: Since 1981

By Zena McNabb

He is the Rock, His work is perfect: for all His ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is He." (Deut. 32:4)

It has been twenty years that we have been called The People of Truth and we are seeking God's Will and Word so that we can be qualified to have that name. "Teach me Thy way, O Lord; I will walk in Thy truth: unite my heart to fear Thy name. I will praise thee, O Lord my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify Thy name forevermore." (Psa. 86:11,12)

Paul gave these very valuable instructions in Ephesians 4:24,25, "And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another." We know that we are God's children, because we have come to Him in repentance and faith, but God told us in Isaiah 63:8 how He knows we are His. "For He said, Surely they are My people, children that will not lie: so He was their Saviour."


Every Nation or People create for themselves a banner to identify them among the nations of the world, and we are so happy that God gave us our banner, which you see on the front of our paper this month. One night as we knelt in prayer during our worship service, God gave Bro. McNabb a vision of what our banner should look like.

The Blue is for Truth, the White is for the Righteousness of the Saints, the Purple is for Royalty and the Balance on the purple stands for Justice and Judgment. As it is written in Isaiah 89:14-16, "Justice and judgment are the habitation of Thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before Thy face. Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O Lord, in the light of Thy countenance. In Thy name shall they rejoice all the day and in Thy righteousness shall they be exalted."
