TRUTH AND FREEDOM

maxresdefault

 

John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

Jesus wants every believer living in the freedom He paid the price for on the Cross. Living free requires a certain relationship and responsibility to Truth. Political candidates, political parties, and political correctness are not the foundation for our freedom but it is Truth and that Truth is what God has revealed in His Word. In the Last Days many who will be deceived by satan and the antichrist will do so because they received not the love of the truth 2 Thessalonians 2:10. The prophet Daniel in one of the visions he received also revealed that the future antichrist casts Truth to the ground Daniel 8:12. The spirit of antichrist that casts Truth to the ground is already at work in the world 1 John 4:3.

 

There is no freedom without the Truth, for an individual, family, or nation. Our nation is free today because of Truth at its foundation. Psalm 11:3 says, “If the foundations be destroyed what can the righteous do.” The erosion of Truth in our culture is a direct attack to undermine our nation’s foundation. The political movement in our day who call themselves “Progressives” is not a movement promoting progress but rather a progressive rejection of our nation’s founding. It is time to become valiant for the Truth of God (Jeremiah 9:5) and get back to the guiding principles of our nation’s Founding Fathers. Any movement away from these Truths and founding is a progressive movement toward the destruction of our nation.

 

In our spiritual life, Truth is foremost in dealing with the devil, our adversary.  He is the prince of darkness and the father of lies John 8:44. Remember, though, that we have spiritual armor to put on Ephesians 6:10-18. All the armor of God, light, and righteousness is held up by the belt of Truth Ephesians 6:14. Truth is for our protection. Don’t turn your ears away from the Truth 2 Timothy 4:3, 4 but be loyal to it 2 Corinthians 13:8. Our responsibility to Truth includes:

 

 

  1. Know the Truth.

John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

 

  1. Do the Truth.

John 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.

 

  1. Understand the law, grace, and Truth.

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

 

  1. Rightly divide the Truth.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

 

  1. Be loyal to the Truth.

2 Corinthians 13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.

 

  1. Be guided by the Spirit of Truth.

John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
