We are soon to take our responsibility as United States Citizens to vote locally and for the President of our United States of America. This is a serious time and each one of us must be informed of the issues, weigh our decisions carefully, and ask God for wisdom in our choices. We are listening for TRUTH but all we hear are false promises.
Two thousand years ago the Jewish people under the harsh rule of Rome thought Jesus would be their King. They hailed Him as their Messiah who would rule them justly and throw over the oppressive Roman government in Israel. As they discovered in one week….He said His Kingdom was not of this world. They called Him a blasphemer because He said His Father God sent Him. They wanted to kill Him!
But when Jesus was brought before Pilate to be questioned, Jesus answered him (John 18:36-38) “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not here.
Pilate therefore said to Him, ‘Are You a king then?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the TRUTH. Everyone who is of the TRUTH hears My voice.
Pilate said to Him, ‘WHAT IS TRUTH?”
Are you asking the same question today? We are hearing and believing lies every day. Satan’s language is lies….that is his native tongue! (John 8:44)
Romans 1:25 says wicked men exchanged the TRUTH of God for a lie.
The only absolute TRUTH is Jesus the Christ, who came from the Father full of grace and TRUTH. (John 1:14) Jesus speaks the TRUTH. He is quoted as saying “I tell you the TRUTH” thirty times in Matthew, thirteen times in Mark, eight times in Luke, and thirty seven times in John.
When Jesus was teaching His disciples, He knew He was going to die, raise from the dead and ascent to His Father in heaven. He told them He was going to leave them…and they were afraid!
He said, (John 14:1-6) “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In my fathers house are many rooms, if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the way you know. Thomas said to Him ‘Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?’ Jesus said to him, I am the way, the TRUTH, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
That is a promise…..and God does not break His promises!!!
Jesus also said (John 8:32) “You shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH shall make you free.”
NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TRUTH IS!!!
