Because God is truth, and Jesus was truth manifest, and since we have received the Spirit of truth, who lives inside us, it is urgent in this hour that we, children of the “Truth”, continue in, and increase in “walking in the truth.” Since we are in the last hour of history in which all that stands for truth is being challenged, and because everything which opposes the character and nature of God starts with a lie, and comes from the Father of Lies, Satan himself.
So, what does it mean to “love the truth”?
In simplest terms, it means to love God. I am convinced many Christians have not taken the time to diagnose the root cause of many issues we are dealing with in our culture. If we took an honest look at where the “problems” began they would ALL point to one thing: the removal of the foundation of truth. And once a society removes its foundation it will crumble. And there can be no foundation solid enough to build upon, which will withstand the wind and rainstorms, unless it is made of one solid ingredient. For it must be a unified foundation, not made of sand and stone, but of stone only...And we, in our times, have built our society on thin air! We have built it upon “imagination” and upon faulty ideas. Ideas cannot be a foundation, only truth can.
So, we are falling quickly, and everyone knows this in their heart, if they will be honest enough to look at the nature of the foundation.
So, is there hope for America? No. Is there hope for the Christian? Absolutely!!! Was there ever hope for America apart from the Biblical foundation of truth? No.
If we want to escape from being dragged into the deceit of faulty ideas which are crumbling as I type, then we MUST agree that there is a problem, that the problem is a faulty foundation, and we must work together encouraging one another, united together, and build solely on the foundation of truth: Jesus Christ and the Word of God from here on out! We MUST decide to stop following the lies of Satan. We must seek discernment from the scriptures, praying for the Spirit of Truth to bring light where there is darkness and truth where there is error…all around us! For there is a deception, stemming from the Father of Lies himself. It is filling our society and swallowing it whole!
BUT WE, the children of God, do not despair, or grow weary because…our God IS the Spirit of Truth. And He will never contradict Himself. He is faithful to His nature and cannot lie. Therefore, we can trust the promise that, all who “hide” in Him, are safe (Ps. 91). First though, take seriously these words of “condition” but also of encouragement. For this is what Jesus says regarding those who are His: “if you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you” (John 14:15-17). Remember, the world will not receive Him, nor recognize Him. Therefore, we must make that distinction. There are those of the “Truth” or Jesus, and there are those of the “World” or Satan.
Therefore, take note of this, “but the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:23-24). This means, if we are children of God, or children of the Truth, we will worship God “in our innermost self, with our truest self, by the Holy Spirit and in the Truth (Jesus Christ and the Word of God). We, brothers and sisters, are NOT of this World, not of the Father of Lies, not building of a faulty foundation, and MUST NOT be divided in our worship…or in our ALEGIANCE to God!
Therefore, encourage one another to look up, to take note of the present hour, to not lose heart, to build up the Body-of-Christ, to separate from the lies, to reach out to those building on a lie, and to draw near to God, resist the devil, and stand firm on the TRUTH.
