Commentary By: Gordon King
In this world we can choose to believe the truth or lies, we can believe half truths, or twisted truth. But whatever it is that we do believe the truth shall always remain the truth!
The bible is the written word of God Almighty! Jesus Christ is the Word.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.“
Jesus Christ was in the beginning, He was not only with God He is God! All things that were ever made were made through Him, and without Him nothing was ever made. He is the life and the light, but the darkness does not comprehend Him!
Christians living in the world today are being persecuted by the world more and more each day. We are being scoffed at, mocked, and scorned. We are being told that we are intolerant, haters, and believe in fairy tales. Those who come against us are not of God but of this world, and they are under the influence of the evil one, Satan. He is the ruler of this current age, the god of this world, and if you don’t belong to Jesus Christ then you belong to him, he is your god!
Satan has blinded the minds of those that do not believe in Jesus Christ, he has deceived them into believing lies, half truths, and the twisting of the truth. His is all about deception, satanic deception, the doctrines of demons.
Those of the world have suppressed the truth in unrighteousness, because the knowledge of God has been manifest in them and shown to them, therefore God will pour out His wrath upon them, they are without excuse!
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.“
Those of the world think that they are wise in their own eyes, yet they became fools. Worshiping the creation rather than the Creator. And even though there is no proof whatsoever of evolution even the scientists for the most part believe in evolution, when they themselves should be the ones first and foremost to believe in a Creator!
Evolution cannot be reproduced in a lab or in nature, yet they still believe in it without proof. Animals do not change from one species to another, they may change or adapt to some degree over time within their own species yet they cannot change from one species to another.
Those of the world would rather believe in anything other than the true and living God, Jesus Christ! They exchanged the truth for a lie. And this my friends is why God gave them over to uncleanness, to vile passions, and a debased mind, to do things which are unnatural, things which are unfitting, things which are unrighteous and ungodly! Those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only those who do such things but those who approve of such things.
This is the way the world is headed, not only in the increase of secular people doing such things but of them approving of such things! We have more and more laws approving of vile passions, of unrighteous and ungodly things, more of society persecuting those that are opposed to such things, like Christians!
Everything that was ever made was made through Him, and without Him nothing was ever made! Not only did Jesus Christ make everything He also holds all things together my friends, all things!
“For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.“
Without Jesus Christ nothing would exist, nothing! Not only that but nothing would be held together, meaning that it would stop existing.
If Jesus Christ were not God then how did He create everything? How could He hold all things together, both visible and invisible? He couldn’t my friends, He couldn’t, only God could do it!
Don’t let anyone deceive you, Jesus Christ is God, He is the Word, He is the truth, and all scripture is God breathed! It is the truth, the whole truth, from beginning to end.
The truth is that there is but one God, and one Mediator between God and man, Jesus Christ!
1 Timothy 2:5
“For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,”
Do not be deceived, there is not more than one true and living God, there is only one, one way, one truth, one life, Jesus Christ! The only way to the Father in heaven.
A person must be born-again to see the kingdom of God, you must be born again to understand God and His word, you must be born again to be able to rightly divide God’s word and to discern the spirits!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
