Truth is only True if it Comes from God
Truth is Only True if it Comes from God
I woke up a little earlier than I wanted to, and after taking care of a few things, thought about returning to bed. I just had this sense that sleep wasn't what was to happen, that there was writing to do.
What crossed my mind is the whole subject of truth. This world is replete with examples of people trying to create their own version of truth.
When the rich young man approached Jesus about eternal life he was thinking he had already done so much, surely he would be ready for Heaven. Jesus still saw the truth in this man. His wealth and prosperity wasn't enough to save him. That's God's truth vs man's truth.
The Pharisees and Sadducees liked bringing charges and challenges to Jesus. Essentially they were bringing their truth to Jesus to see what He would say about it.
To be honest with yourself is the first step in helping yourself in and through problems. Basic psychiatry says admitting that you have a problem has to be first.
Billions of people in this world won't ever admit that they are wrong about their belief about God. They would rather ignore physical truth, refuse to acknowledge mental truth therefore they cannot see Spiritual truth.
In Revelation these people are seen as the sand on the seashore. There's that many against the truth of God.
Also in Revelation they refuse to repent. They refuse to acknowledge is another way to say it. The truth is there but they just don't want to let go of what they want truth to be.
This universe was created by God. He defined what truth is. Satan has been deceiving himself and trillions of people throughout the centuries, denying the truth of God.
Satan knew the truth of the Old Testament. He couldn't stop it being written but he did twist how it was taught and lived out. The result was the Pharisees and Sadducees. He blinded the minds of the unbelieving. They totally missed the arrival of Jesus. Totally missing the triumphal entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem. Their truth was more important to them. Do you realize that had they not done that, had they been looking for Jesus, life today would be so much different? If you remove the Church Age, we, at this point, wouldn't be here. The Thousand Year reign of Christ would have been over by for a thousand years. The final judgment of mankind would have already happened. The book of Revelation is about Israel. Daniel's 70th week of his prophecy.
Truth. God's truth is the most hidden thing on this planet. Media refuses to show it. Publisher's fight printing it. Political parties try to crush it out of existence. Hollywood tries to keep the world from thinking about God's truth. Consuming their minds with useless things and thinking.
Jesus said He is the Way, the TRUTH, and the life. Nobody comes to the Father but through Him.
Truth is without Jesus it is impossible to be saved.
Truth is without Jesus it is impossible to please God.
Truth is we cannot do anything, for that matter we could try everything, and still fall short of what is needed to be saved.
This world is trying to drown civilization in falsehoods. Teaching and forcing people to believe, teach, and promote lies as being the truth.
The Bible is the last Word. The Bible states clearly who will never see Heaven. It states clearly what Hell is like and who WILL be going there. Your truth or my truth aside the Bible is the truth. Satan cannot stop the reality of the truth of the Bible. He's been trying since the dawn of time.
We all want a peaceful truth. To live a peaceful life. Jesus says that in this world we would have tribulations. What do we have? Tribulations. Truth.
Jesus said that without faith it is impossible to please God. Everyone living for themselves has tried, they failed, nothing they did pleased God.
We spend billions every year in escapism.
Escapism is television, theme parks, fiction books, plays, productions. On drugs, therapy sessions. Anyone, anything to escape the reality of the Bible. That's the real truth. We spend billions on it. Time is one thing that even Satan knows we can't get back. So he creates things that are designed to waste it as quickly and quietly as possible.
Do you have God's truth in your life? Does it even matter to you? God's truth is telling others about Jesus and how He wants to save them. It is living for Jesus. I am blown away at the hundreds of thousands of videos that people have A) created and B) have hundreds of thousands of followers. They have millions wasting time taking apart movies, television shows, tearing people apart by social media trashing etc. People by the hundreds of thousands are pouring into Hell in the meantime. From drug overdoses, texting while driving, drunk driving, shootings, stabbings, murders of every kind. Suicides.
How does it sit with you? Would you be like that rich young man to walk up to Jesus to ask about what do you need to do to be saved? Would you take stock in your life at that moment He tells you and would you walk away like he did?
Truth hurts at times doesn't it? Probably the number one reason people try to create their own.
Every person has a need for Salvation in Christ Jesus. That is your truth for today.
