Commentary By: Gordon King
What is the truth? Does anyone really know the truth, can we know the truth?
Pontius Pilate asked Jesus “What is truth?”
Jesus Christ told him that He came into this world to bear witness to the truth.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
Jesus Christ Himself tells us that He is the truth, this is the truth. He is the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him.
The truth is that there is only one way to heaven, and that is by repenting of ones sins and accepting Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, this is the gospel of Jesus Christ, this is the gospel of those that believe.
And this is the way of the world, not knowing the truth, not wanting to know the truth, turning from the truth. The world pushes the truth aside and creates it’s own truths, it turns lies into truths.
The world is now under the guise of truth, hiding the truth with lies, expounding upon lies as if they are the truth, we see it everyday now. We are being told that right is now wrong, that wrong is now right, that good is now evil and evil is now good.
People who now speak the truth are being censored and shamed, they are being labeled as instigators, as agitators, as wicked and evil. The pressure upon these people who speak the truth is being intensified, they are being threatened with fines, jail time, and harassment, many are loosing their jobs and businesses because of it. No longer is the truth merely being ignored but ostracized, ridiculed, and persecuted, as well as those that do not agree with or follow along with world opinions and ideologies.
The world is turning from the truth, it is turning away from Jesus Christ and His gospel message, it is shunning those that do follow Christ and His ways, we see it more and more as the days go by.
Even many in the church are turning from the truth, they now believe in false messages, untruths about God and God’s word. This apostasy is rampant and worldwide, but we especially see it happening here in America today. The church is being divided, it is being separated from those that believe all of God’s word to be the truth without the interjection of man’s opinions and those that interject worldly ideologies and opinions into God’s word, and I believe that it’s happening for a reason, that we are getting very close to the rapture of the church.
It’s been reported that the Pope stated that someday everyone will get to heaven, and that all religions worship the same God. Where in the bible does it tell us these things? I have never read it, and I’ve read the entire book more than once! And from what I read in scripture is that only those that repent and accept Jesus Christ will enter the Kingdom of God, that a person must be born again, and that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven!
Many in the church are being misled and led astray by false teachings, by the doctrines of demons. Many more are turning from the truth by their own accord, this is apostasy!
We hear so many lies these days that it can be difficult to weed out the lies from the truth. We need discernment and the word of God, we need to be able to rightly divide the word of God, we need insight and clarity, and all of these things come from the Lord.
We must acquire our truth from the word of God. We must stand firm in our faith and our convictions of the truth. We must always believe God over man. And we must never deviate from the truth. We must always speak the truth.
When unbelievers hear the truth it isn’t up to us for them to believe it or not, that’s God’s job. Our job is to just tell the truth. The truth shall always remain the truth no matter what anyone believes, whether or not they like it. The truth does not ebb and flow like the tide, it remains the truth in all circumstances of life, under all conditions, through all of the storms. The truth does not change with society, it does not change because man changes, it doesn’t change because fads change, no, the truth remains the truth at all times.
And the truth is that Jesus Christ is God, that He came into this world in order to bring salvation to the lost, that He died for our sins. The truth is that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, there is no other. The truth is that unless a person is born again he or she will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The truth is that a person must repent of his or her sins and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior in order to be born again. This is the truth, this is the gospel of Jesus Christ, this is my gospel and all those that believe!
The truth, the world turns from it, pushes it aside, ridicules it, laughs at it, mocks it, scorns it, hates it, and persecutes it. And as time pushes on the more it shall be. However, there will come a time when many will open their eyes to the truth, and the persecution will intensify to the nth degree, I’m talking about during the Tribulation period. You really don’t want to wait until that time to be born again! If you haven’t done it yet then do it now, do it before the rapture of the church, it could be any minute now, know one knows the day or the hour, do it before it’s too late! After the rapture of the church you shall have to endure the Tribulation period and all that comes with it.
Do not turn from the truth but know the truth. Do not mock or laugh at the truth but understand the truth, believe the truth, accept the truth, your eternal life depends upon it!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
