18/06/2011 What is TRUTH? Recieve Gods Free Gift of LOVE!

God bless you this week In Jesus Christ Holy Name. How have you been? I trust you are well and have had a wonderful week. You know the best thing to do when you have been through a tough time is to go to the only one who can really help. God is waiting to hear off so many people. Jesus paid the ultimate price with his life and blood so that you could have a relationship with your heavenly Father. Jesus is waiting to hear from you. We face many situations and sometimes it appears we are on our own., I want to let you know that if you are a born again believer of Christ, It will be God carrying you through the roughest parts, shielding you from the fiery darts of the enemy. You are never facing this alone. You must call out to him and give him your situations. We were not made to carry around such heaviness. Our bodies and minds are just not built for those oppressive situations. Always remember to give to your heavenly Father the situations you find yourself faced with. He will take them from you and deal with them. He will shield you from the worst. If you are not born again and haven’t asked Jesus into your heart you can right now. You don’t have to face anything alone again. In fact you have never been alone in the first place. Jesus is waiting to hear from you, God is waiting to show you the truth. His truth. He has been holding out on you for such along time and still will for as long as it takes. But know this time is going by. We are in the age of Grace ( un merited Favour ) That is mercy we do not deserve. Favour we do not deserve yet God loves you and wants you to take this time to be re united with him. He has offered His grace for a very long time now in fact for over 2000 years. The signs continually show us that it draws closer and closer to the end of the age. Will you be with God or with The father of this world? Something to think about this week. God loves you. God bless you.
We will continue this week with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. We have had a small look into much of the scripture and last week we finished with “Love does not delight in evil but rejoices in truth“.
So in continuation of that part of the scripture Lets talk about truth and what truth is. Gods word is truth.
In 1 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
Lets break this down a little:
All scripture is given by inspiration of God ( it means that all scripture is God breathed) God worked through the prophets in the Old testament and New testament. The Holy Spirit working with them (part of the trinity). Just as God breathed His breath into man making us a speaking spirit, God breathed his words through man to write the bible. Not all the bible is God actually speaking, there are parts when other people talk and this is very important to learn when you get to know how to interpret the scriptures.
 
 
Gods spoken words are so powerful as you will see in Genesis 1 at the beginning of the bible God said “light Be and it was” ( interesting fact) - we know through scientific proof that Light is still travelling at the speed of light, it hasn’t stopped and cant be stopped. Why? Because God didn’t say Light Stop He said LIGHT BE!!! Gods word brings things into being, things are created, so that shows that the bible which is Gods word when spoken is full of power. Hundreds of prophecies of The coming of Jesus Christ came through prophets in the old testament. This was from God and all came to pass, came into being. “Gods word does not return unto him void but goes to where it is sent” as we see in Isaiah 55:11
It is a mighty tool to use in this world against fallen angels and life circumstances. If you are to speak anything about a situation I learnt that instead of speaking the problem like you are used to. God showed me in his word that I was to speak His word which is the answer. If it is in Gods will then You can be sure it can and will happen if you speak it out in faith. And there are hundreds of scriptures in the bible concerning healing!
Proverbs 4:20
“My son attend to my words, incline your ear to my sayings Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh."
Gods words are POWERFUL!

If you have read my blog you will know I had a brain injury which affected the whole of my body. This was due to a blood disorder that was undetected in my body. The doctors could not help me. In fact in the beginning they were of no help at all and didn’t quite no what to do. I learnt that it was Gods will to heal all people who had sickness and disease. And it was up to me to receive His healing in faith. Gods words says faith comes by hearing the word of God, Romans 10:17 “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God“.
How else would I know that God can heal anyone who comes to him with any aliment or illness they have and better still He wants to. The bible truth shares that he is not the cause of Sickness in the world today. Sickness is part of the curse and death which entered into the world due to Adam and Eve being tempted by the devil and giving in to the devil instead of doing the one thing God told them not to do. Just that one thing! They had everything and was told one little thing not to do and guess what the devil came along and boom they did it and the curse came in. the enemy gained control and dominion over mankind and the world! See Genesis 3 I only learnt all this after I read Gods divine and Holy Scriptures. All those years I didn’t read it followed what the world and people said about it. Instead of reading the truth. And then understanding why so many things are happening in the world today. The truth doesn’t just share the truth it gives the answers in truth too. God is so good!
I learnt the truth that the word of God being alive and powerful (an actual living thing) see Hebrew 4:12 was like a medicine to my body. I spoke out many healing scriptures over my body daily like a medicine. Gods word is powerful because unlike the doctors not being able to help me or cure me only manage the pain. I was left unable to walk at times or with a limp. Gods word strengthened my body and sure enough the limp left!. This is the power of Gods breathed word!
God gave us his guidance, wisdom and will for a reason, so that we as His children could benefit from them. His word is the ultimate truth and the ultimate power. It is called the sword of the spirit see Ephesians 6
The next part of 1 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
It is profitable for doctrine- Profitable in this sense literally means (beneficial rewarding, useful, valuable, win-win, fruitful)
So firstly Gods word is all of those. That’s sounds pretty good. It is the truth, this is why the enemy has had so many people believing that the bible is boring, it doesn’t make sense, and all the stigma that goes along with it. Its a lie from the pit of hell. The enemy knows that anyone who digs deep into the bible (Gods words) and applies it to their life is in win-win situation and in fact all the promises given in the bible are there for the taking. God wants that for His children, remember we have seen John 10:10 that Jesus said
“Satan came to Kill to steal and to destroy, But I have come that you might have life in all its fullness” Well the first part of the scripture is exactly what is happening to people all over the world who don’t know what Gods words says let alone apply it to their lives. They are being robbed something silly of the blessings and promises of God and there are thousands of them. The truth has been suppressed by many and unfortunately many would rather believe what they hear without actually checking it out for themselves and digging deep. This is the way many people are today and think they have a right to comment on people who do understand and do have Gods wisdom working in their life. People who have never read the bible or dug deep into it have no right to comment and argue that it is just a book and it is not real. Everything recorded in this living book actually happened. It is not like a novel or Children’s story although there are some great recordings of what happened to many mighty men and women of God. It is not like the myths or a legend. It is not like Greek mythology or any other false religion. Instead it is recordings of true life events with the almighty God who lives. It is recordings of Jesus Christ here on the earth. It is Gods words spoken throughout time to Prophets and as we have already seen it is recordings of 1000’s of prophecys with many that have already come to pass. Jesus fulfilling 300 of them himself.
In the Gospel of John He wrote by Inspiration of the Holy Spirit ( God breathed)
John 1:1-5"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it."

In Psalms 119:105 it says: "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."

This world is full of darkness I don’t need to say much about this other than look at what is happening around the world. Murder, rapes, illness, death list goes on they are part of the curse. Not from God but the enemy the devil we have seen this in previous blogs. We also Know God gave us a window to be free from this and the devils control. This is by Jesus Christ being sent back who was the word in flesh. See John 3:16 as we have seen in previous blogs. The scripture says the Gods word was there in the very beginning as he was the word. Its says in him ( Jesus) was LIFE and that the darkness cant understand it. Anyone without Christ in their heart is in darkness whether you believe it or not. Without Him in your heart, You are not awakened by the spirit of God and you are dormant and separated from God through the fall of man and the curse. This is why it is not understood.
The book is not just any old book you see on the shelf of a store or library. This book is supernatural. it’s the truth of God, His Divine Word, Its alive, (living) Powerful, it’s a weapon used in combat. How can a book be alive? Same way you and me are here today. God created it by speaking it through prophets of His and it came into being through them.
It is an incorruptible seed. scripture says in 1 Peter 1:23 (It means it cannot be broken or undermined or damaged or taken away or changed. Gods word is eternal just as He is an as are we and it is final Authority.)
Psalm 119:89 says “ Forever, O lord, your word is settled in Heaven”

Isaiah 40:8 says “The grass withers, the flower fades: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”
It is the TRUTH no matter what anything or anyone says it doesn’t change this FACT! . Gods word hasn’t changed. It cannot change and will never change. Gods word is a powerful book of living seeds and the enemy has tried to keep this wonderful TRUTH, The ONLY TRUTH away from you all your life.
John 8:31-32 “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Psalms 33:4 “For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.”
 
 
A seed is something you plant into the ground, water it, feeding it and it grows into whatever seed it was. So for example. An orange tree. Its sown into the ground feed and watered given light (lots of it) and within due season it grows oranges. Year after year. The word of God is the same as the principle of the orange tree. It is a seed. Every scripture spoken out produces a harvest ( meaning produces what was spoken in Faith) it doesn’t happen straight away at times as there is a season to all seeds but if it is planted in solid ground it will grow. There is a need for a firm foundation and when this is established You will see Gods word taking affect in your life.

Jesus said in Luke 8:11-15 to his disciples:
The seed is the word of God. Those by the wayside are the ones who hear; then the devil comes and takes away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved. ( don’t be like that person, Receive Jesus Christ into your life and heart right now ask him in!) See Romans 10:9-10
But the ones on the rock are those who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no root, who believe for a while and in time of temptation fall away. ( this is someone who heard Gods word received it, understood it but because they still had sin in their life giving a door to the devil they lost it and gave in to temptation that devil brings)
Now the ones that fell among thorns are those who, when they have heard, go out and are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. So the seed that they spoke Gods word could no grow properly because it had no fertile soil to grow in. ( meaning the persons life is in consistent, not stable and weak in spirit)
But the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience. " ( those who have accepted Christ into their life and heart, that have turned away from their old ways. The ways of the world and evil. And have built up a solid foundation in their life and spirit feeding on the word of God. They WILL produce FRUIT! Things will happen, be created and materialise in your life. LIFE Gods type of LIFE. His truth, Just as it was meant to all long! Amen! This is the power of GODS WORD, which is HIS SPOKEN WORD.
John 17:17 “Sanctify ( make holy) them through the truth: your word is truth.”
Jesus said in John 6:63 “My words are spirit and they are life!”
We know that Jesus came to bring a New way, A New Covenant. The Old Testament was a different age to the one we are in now.
I have heard so many people who don’t know the bible quote a small scripture out of the old testament that they firstly don’t understand and have perhaps taking the scripture out of context also. Why did they do that, because they didn’t know the truth. They hadn’t read the New Testament. The New Testament is where you should start when you begin reading the bible. It is the New Covenant we are in; The Covenant of LOVE, God’s mercy and grace. A covenant is a legally binding agreement. Unbreakable and everlasting. Praise God!
He is not the wrathful God people talk about who punishes anyone who doesn’t do as He says. That is so far from the TRUTH. That was the Old Testament, God is a God of Mercy as we have already seen in previous blogs and He is LOVE itself! His truth is what has got you reading this today. It is not by chance, The Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of truth has got you here. WHY? He wants you to see the truth and live in it for your benefit not his. He has given you the truth. Its all in the bible and every word that God breathed, He did for you and me. For our benefit. For us to speak out Just as God did.

Jesus said in John 6:63 “My words are spirit and they are life!”
We know in previous blogs that Jesus said “I am the way the TRUTH and the LIFE no one comes to the Father except by me” John 14:6
So we have seen that the word of God is the TRUTH! and We know in previous blogs that The Holy Spirit is the spirit of TRUTH and that He is part of the trinity. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. Take a look at
the last supper Jesus said to His disciples the Apostles:
John 14:15-16 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him” (unless you have accepted Christ into your life you are separated from God and his spirit).

Jesus said in John 16:13 “When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth”
Jesus Christ revealed much to His disciples and not long before He was to leave this world He shared wit them that another was to come. Its was the spirit of truth, A comforter, helper, Intercessor, Standby, Counsellor, Advocate. This is part of the free gift God gave to man if you accept Christ in your heart and life. It his free gift of LOVE to YOU!
 
 
In 1 Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
 
Profitable for reproof- Re proof is designed to convince others of their having erred, in order to move them to acknowledge their mistakes and correct these.
(It basically means trying to help correct) or put on the right path.
Proverbs 3:12 “Because the one whom Jehovah loves he reproves, even as a father does a son in whom he finds pleasure.”
When you correct your child you don’t do it in a self righteous way. You don’t do so in a way where You think I’m better than you or do so to benefit you. ( unless you are the small minority of parents) Its done to protect, to guard, to enable and equip your child. This is what is meant by the term reproof regarding Gods word (his scriptures). Its always been about us and for our benefit. Never His. People are so mislead into thinking that people who love God are brain washed! Who are lost and haven’t got their own mind! Or worst still boring! Those types of people thinking that haven’t go a clue seriously! People who follow the bible have had the precious revelation knowledge that Gods word is in fact the ultimate truth. It’s a guide into life today even though it was written thousands of years ago. The bible is ALIVE, see Hebrew 4:12 and it is POWERFUL.

The Holy Spirit is a teacher, a helper a guide and part of is to reproof and correct.
Jesus said to His disciples before He was due to leave:
John 16:13-15 “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.

John 16:7-8
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter (The Holy Spirit) will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:"

The Holy Spirit doesn’t just show you when you are doing something wrong, or if you are in a a place you are not supposed to be for nothing; its all for your own benefit never HIS! He never leaves the situation open either there is always a way of restoring the situation so that you are not left out in the cold!
Gods divine Holy Word is reproof. His word is truth it came through people Gods prophets who had the Spirit of Truth working through the. It is there to corrects you and put you on the path of truth instead of being in darkness. There has been one massive deception people are under and of course unless you have read the bible and tested it out yourself. You will never know fully. Gods word is there to illuminate you to the TRUTH and if necessary correct and restore. What a wonderful Gift to have been given, yet people would rather go their own way and ignore what is best not just for this life here but your eternal well being also. That of you and yours! God wants to lead you into all righteousness.( We will study righteousness in another blog)Gods Righteousness is in right standing with him, that is free from sin and guilt. That is redeemed from the curse of the law and that is you are forgiven and free to love and worship him in Sprit and in truth should you wish to accept His free gift of Love. Its all about accepting the Truth and walking in it.
Question is are you going to accept Gods free Gift of LOVE or you going to walk on by thinking you know better?


Are you ready for the truth?
 
We will continue with 1 Corinthians 13:4-8  LOVE Protects LOVE never fails!
