The True God
(Jer 10:10; Jn 17:3)
God is the only true God (Jn 17:3).
For He is true His will does not change (He 6:17) and
For there is no deceit in Him it is impossible for God to lie (Ps 89:34; He 6:18).
Faith is believing Him and believing that His word alone is true (2Sa 7:28) and
The life of faith is, in order to enter the true heaven after death (He 9:24), only listening to and
speaking the truth while alive (Rom 9:1) and trusting His promises until the end.
While everyone is taught to tell the truth from childhood and perjury is considered a serious offense,
The world is deceived and deceiving for
The Bible says that God alone is true (Jer 10:10; Jn 17:3; 1Th 1:9; Tit 1:2; Rev 6:10) and that
All men are liars (Ps 116:11; Jer 17:9; Rom 3:4).
This is because their ancestor Adam sinned,
Deceived by the devil, the father of lies (Ge 2:17, 3:4-6; Jn 8:44), that is,
Satan who in the spiritual heaven deceived himself to be like God (Is 14:12-15) and was
Cast down to and contained in Hades (Jude 1:6).
Thus, men made a covenant with death, an agreement with Sheol, and
They made lies their refuge, falsehood their shelter (Is 28:15).
Folly = pride = deceiving = deceived = wicked = madness (Ecc 7:25; Pr 14:8, 16).
The Bible is the credit score of God who cannot lie (He 6:18).
As God prophesied to Noah, He wiped out the entire world by a deluge (Ge 7:4-10),
As He promised to Abram, God gave him at the age of 100 a son (Ge 18:10, 21:1-2).
As God warned Lot, the city of Sodom was destroyed by burning sulfur (Ge 19:24-25) and
His sons-in-law who treated it as a joke were destroyed with the city (Ge 19:14).
Furthermore, according to the covenant He made with Abraham 400 years before (Ge 15:13),
His descendants, the Israelites, were delivered from their slavery in Egypt (Ex 12:41) as
The spirit of death passed over the homes with the blood of lamb following the promise (Ex 12:13).
Even in the wilderness they did not become extinct for
According to His promise, God daily gave them food for 40 years (Ex 16:13, 35).
The sanctuary where the vase with manna and the ark of the covenant law (Ex 16:34-35, 25:22) were
Reminded them that Jehovah is the true God and
The Law commanded them to not be deceived (Ex 20:16; Lev 19:11).
However, the fall of Israel led them to ruins because of
The rebellious people, the cheating priests and the false prophets (Is 9:15, 30:9-10; Jer 6:10; Mal 1:14).
Yeshua came and said, “Destroy this temple and I will raise it again in three days,” because
Through the death and the resurrection of the temple of His body (Jn 2:19-21),
He would tear down the temple that was only a copy and build the true temple (He 9:24), and
Give not the daily food that the flesh eats and dies but
The true food that the soul eats to live eternally, His flesh and blood (Jn 6:32-55).
After fasting 40 days, He was tempted by the devil but by the word He defeated him (Ps 119:69).
Testified by the true prophet John the Baptist (Mt 3:11; Mk 11:32), He stressed that:
The words of Yeshua = the truth = the words of the Father (Jn 8:26, 14:24) = the words that give life to the spirit (Jn 6:63)
As He died, He said, “It is finished” (Jn 19:30), declaring that He:
1) Died as the last Adam and fulfilled the word given to the first Adam, “If you eat of it you will
surely die,” testifying that the Father is the true God (Ge 2:17; 1Co 15:45);
2) Judged the devil the father of lies (Ge 3:4-6; Jn 8:44), as the tree of the knowledge of good
and evil was the trap to catch both the deceiver and the deceived (Job 12:16); and
3) Sprinkled the redeeming blood and let souls become His true sons (He 12:8).
Through His resurrection, the Father testified that the words of the Son are true (Mt 16:21; Ac 3:15).
The Spirit of truth (Jn 14:17, 15:26, 16:13), who came from the true heaven
Lets believers testify the things that were fulfilled according to the prophecies (Lk 1:1-2) and
The things that will be fulfilled (Rev 1:7).
He warns them to not be deceived by Satan (2Co 2:11).
The Christian was at one time foolish and deceived (Tit 3:3) but is no longer deceived or deceives.
He longs to gather into the Church, the only society on earth where only the truth is accepted.
He only listens to the truth, only speaks the truth and does not lie (Rom 9:1; 1Ti 2:7).
Not only does he speak the truth but also does it, as to not deceive himself (Jas 1:22) for
He believes that liars will be thrown into the lake of fire, the second death (Rev 21:8).
Cover our ears and our mouths. Let us not listen to lies. Let us only speak the truth.
For in due time, the truth will be revealed, let us endure and wait (He 6:18-19).
When You come back, take us all to the true heaven where we will be with You forever. Amen.
