John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, complete of grace and truth.
W.E. Vines Bible Dictionary says this ” truth,” is utilised (a) objectively, signifying “the reality lying at the basis of an look the manifested, veritable essence of a matter” – “the truth of God” is indicative of His faithfulness in the fulfillment of His promises as exhibited in Christ the word has an absolute force in John 14:six 17:17 18:37, 38 in Eph. four:21, ” truth,” not merely verbal, but sincerity and integrity of character.
Have you ever stopped to think about that without the need of absolute truth we could have not have absolute self-confidence?
You may possibly be saying what do you imply. I imply that if we could not have absolute assurance in anything, then we could have not have confident expectation of that which we are wanting to see come to pass. That is what assurance is, is not it, self-confidence that what we think is the truth, and the truth is absolute and unchangeable. It is anything that you can place your complete and total trust in. Realizing anything to be truth provides you the potential to place your total trust and reliance in it.
Have you ever identified somebody that was not truthful, who would say what ever was practical? They say they will do anything at a particular time, but quite seldom would show up to do what they stated they would do. I am not speaking about situations prevented them from performing what they stated they would do, I am speaking about this is a habit with them. You know you can have no self-confidence that they will do what they stated they would do. As a matter of reality, you may possibly have additional self-confidence that they will not do what they stated they will do.
We reside in a planet that is quite a lot like this. You see and hear this type of point all the time, and several have lost their potential to think or have self-confidence in any point mainly because they have been lied to so several occasions. I want to inform you, God is not like that. What He stated is accurate 100 % of the time, not just sometimes or when it is practical but often.
John 14:six Jesus stated to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No 1 comes to the Father except via Me.
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth, which comes from God the Father.
John 15:26 “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.
We can have total trust and total self-confidence in Him.
I heard a story about this Christian who lied to yet another Christian mainly because they felt like they could not deal with the truth. God is never ever like that. He will never ever lie. Lying never ever assists us or protects us. Just the opposite is accurate. It is the truth, and understanding the truth is what will make us cost-free. You will never ever catch the Lord telling you a tiny white lie attempting to spare your feeling. He will only speak the truth. Are not you glad? We can have absolute self-confidence that what He stated will come to pass. This is the basis of our faith, this is how we know, and have complete assurance. This is the starting of getting cost-free. You very first have to know the truth, and in understanding the truth, you shall be created cost-free. Glory. If we have no self-confidence in what truth truly is, how are we ever going to know and have assurance and have a basis for our faith. The answer to that is, we can't. God is faithful to often honor His Word, and He desires us to be capable to have total trust in Him. The writer of Hebrews stated He who comes to God have to think that He is, and He is a rewarder of these who diligently seek Him. (Heb:11:six.)
John eight:32 “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you cost-free.''
God is truth. Practically nothing that is outdoors of the truth can make us cost-free, ever!! Truth is truth, and there is no in amongst. There is no such point as a tiny white lie. It is either the truth or not. Coming to an understanding of this will tremendously enable us to acquire guidance and correction. Truth is what puts us on the correct path and leads us away from destruction, if we will not acquire it, how can God enable us?
We reside in a society that does not want to acquire any type of correction at all. We are typically additional afraid of hurting someone's feelings, than we are in seeing them set cost-free. We do not have to be blunt and deliberately go out of our way to say items unflattering or derogatory, I am surely not speaking about that, but we do not have to lie either.
Since of this attitude, several people today can never ever come an understanding of the truth. It is contradictory to what they have selected to think. They will not accept that God's Word is accurate, they pick out to think the situations alternatively. A lot of will think their situations as the truth when it is contradictory to God's Word and will say, see there, God's Word does not function. The truth is it did not function for them mainly because they chose to think a lie alternatively of the truth. I recognize this sounds really hard, but if we definitely want to develop up then we have to comprehend this is the way God is. He is truth and can not lie.
Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that He really should lie, nor a son of man, that He really should repent. Has He stated, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it fantastic?
Jesus is the manifested Word of God, complete of grace and truth. We can often trust Him. We ourselves have to stroll this way if we want to be capable to have self-confidence and assurance in, and think that what God says is accurate, and will come to pass. You may possibly say properly what does that have to do with it, I believed we only had to have self-confidence in God and His Word. We do, but let me ask you this. If you are prone to speaking tiny white lies, then you know your words are not going to come to pass, how then are you ever going to have self-confidence that God's words will come to pass? It erodes your faith and self-confidence in God and His word, when you will not speak the truth. You cannot have self-confidence or assurance in God or His Word when you are continuously speaking lies. People today who are like this are double minded and are in a continuous state of confusion and never ever truly come to an understanding of the truth. Our society desires to say there are no absolutes, do what you want, say what you want, but this is entirely opposite of what God's Word has to say.
Jesus taught His disciples about believing their personal words. He gave them and all who will listen, a lesson in believing and seeing the promises of God fulfilled. Lets study…
Mark 11:12 Now the subsequent day, when they had come out from Bethany, He was hungry. 13. And seeing from afar a fig tree obtaining leaves, He went to see if possibly He would discover anything on it. And when He came to it, He identified practically nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14. In response Jesus stated to it, “Let no 1 consume fruit from you ever once more.'' And His disciples heard it. 20. Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. 21. And Peter, remembering, stated to Him, “Rabbi, appear! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.'' 22. So Jesus answered and stated to them, “Have faith in God. 23. “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, `Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that these items he says will come to pass, he will have what ever he says. 24. “Thus I say to you, what ever items you ask when you pray, think that you acquire them, and you will have them. 25. “And anytime you stand praying, if you have something against any one, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may perhaps also forgive you your trespasses.
Jesus response to Peter's statement in vs. 21 was to make yet another statement. Have faith in God. Let's spend consideration to this. We are about to get a lesson from the Master on how to do that quite point. Christians are often saying I want I had higher faith, but Jesus is displaying us correct right here how we have to receive it. We have a tendency to ignore His directions and just hold on praying God give me higher faith. If we will not think what He stated, and act on it, how will we ever get the type of faith we are praying for? The truth is we cannot. We can only get this type of faith by performing what He stated. We know that what He stated is accurate, and therefor we can act on it with assurance.
Jesus stated an amazing point in vs. 23. He stated if we say anything, and have no doubt in our heart, but think what we say will come to pass, then we will have what ever we say. My query is this, did Jesus truly imply if we believed that what we stated would come to pass then we would have what we stated? Is it attainable He misspoke? No, He never ever misspoke. He is truth, what He stated is the unshakable Word of God. We can think Him.
Jesus stated if we think what we say will come to pass, then we will have what we say. This is not mans teaching, Jesus stated it. He is truth, what He stated is truth, we have to get this settled if we ever want to acquire a level of self-confidence and see our faith create. If we want to stroll in the miraculous then we have to do what the Word of God says. These are the directions we have to comply with.
We have to think what we say, or what we say will not come to pass. Can we think what we say, when half the time what we say is a lie. The answer is no. It will not take place. These are the directions provided by Jesus the master teacher in obtaining faith in God. They will function if we will but apply them! We as Christians really should often speak the truth, we can begin to create self-confidence that the words we speak are going to come to pass by speaking the truth often. We have to make the decision and pick out to think that God's Word is accurate and He is faithful to fulfill His promises. If we will dare to think, and have self-confidence that what we say will come to pass we can see the miraculous. I have verified this to be accurate in my personal life, and challenge all to do the identical.
Do you know Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Do you want to be a joint heir with Christ? If so, I urge you to earnestly pray the following prayer.
Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus. Your word says, “…and the 1 who comes to Me I will by no signifies cast out.” (Jn.six:37),
So I know You will not cast me out, but You take me in, And I thank you for it. You stated in your Word, “whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.'' (Ro. 10:13).
I am calling on Your name, So I know You have saved me now, You also stated, “…that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and think in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart 1 believes to righteousness, and with the mouth confession is created to salvation.” (Ro.10:9,10).
I think in my heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. I think He was raised from the dead for my justification. And I confess Him now as my Lord, Since Your Word says, “… with the heart 1 believes to righteousness…” and I do think with my heart, I have now grow to be the righteousness of God in Christ. (two Cor. five:21),
And I am saved! Thank You, Lord! I can now truthfully say, I see myself as a born once more kid of God! Glory to God!!!! Amen.
