WHAT IS TRUTH?

What Is Truth? That question echoes throughout the atmosphere of planet earth! To me, that is the greatest question ever asked. Pontius Pilot asked Jesus that question just before he declared Jesus to be a perfect man, without fault and then turned Him over to the Jews to be crucified. Pilot never stayed around for the answer to that question, yet in front of him stood the answer. He was the one that came from Heaven to tell us the truth, to show us the life and to redeem us from Satan’s powers of death over all mankind.  Little did Pontius Pilot know that he was only a pawn in the chess match of the holy war between God and spiritual beings without bodies, who gained the dominion over the universe through Adam’s cooperation and obedience to Satan’s great lie in the Garden of Eden.

Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. (John 18:37)

The definition of the word Truth in the dictionary is as follows;
1. that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality.
2. a fact or belief that is accepted as true.
3. the quality or state of being true.

Wikipedia defines truth as;
Truth is most often used to mean being in accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or standard. Truth is also sometimes defined in modern contexts as an idea of “truth to self”, or authenticity.

The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy defines it as such;
Truth is one of the central subjects in philosophy. It is also one of the largest. Truth has been a topic of discussion in its own right for thousands of years.

Jesus’ Definition of Truth:
Thy Word Is Truth. (John 17:17)

Truth must become reality for you if you want to live forever. There are many facets of truth I would call sojourner truth because we are all sojourning through planet earth on our way to eternity. We have but a short time to find out the truth. Jesus said Truth is what God says it is. Truth reveals reality, which is not of this world and can only be found in the Bible. God’s word of truth reveals the eternal perspective. There are 783,137 words making up 31,102 verses in the Bible so it is clear God wants the word of Truth to become reality for you so you can understand Him.  Jesus said, “Everyone that is of the truth hears my voice.” Have you ever heard Jesus’ voice? I have! It’s powerful. Once I was reading a particular scripture and I wasn’t satisfied that I really understood the heart of what it was saying so I was reading it out loud, over and over. I said Lord, I don’t understand this scripture….. boom came the voice. It lifted me off my chair. It felt like electricity hit me in my head, my heart and my spine and I clearly understood the scripture, but I just sat there in awe of the voice. Everyone that is of the truth or is searching for the truth will hear His voice. When you hear His voice, it is wonderful. Truth is intimate and is understood in the heart, not just in the mind. The knowledge of God doesn’t come through the five senses. The knowledge of God is a revelation knowledge that is understood in the heart of man, the center of his being, and it comes through the words of God. 

The word of God is alive, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

The knowledge of truth that comes through the words of God pierces the soul and spirit (dividing what is soulical from that which is spiritual) of the human and quickens the joints and marrow of the bones. Wow! You can’t handle the truth without the Bible. God wrote the Bible to tell the truth, which can only be realized when you get honest with God. The Bible is your truth finder. God’s Spirit takes pleasure in revealing truth to the truth seeker through the words of the Bible. (John 16:13) It’s either truth or dare when it comes to eternity because your soul is depending upon truth for eternal security. Dare yourself to search for truth. Your life is depending upon you to connect with God so you can be safe forever. The saying goes, “truth hurts, but it only hurts when you need to be humbled. If the ugly truth hurts when you hear it, then it is a sign you have too much pride, which disqualifies one from going to Heaven. That is the ugly truth everyone must face. The burden of truth is to make you free from all the lies you have been trained by this world to believe. Truth for life that overcomes death can only be understood by the heart that is filled with FAITH that comes through the words of God. (Hebrews 11:3) 

The Bible calls JesusTHE WORD because He only speaks the words of God. Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away but my words will never pass away.”(Mark 13:31) Jesus never said a word without God telling what to say, never went anywhere without God telling Him where and when to go, never did a deed without His heavenly father telling Him what to do. It is mentioned three times God spoke from Heaven saying, “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased, so hear Him.” When God spoke from Heaven, people thought it was thunder, but Jesus told them it was God. They said of Jesus, “No man on earth has ever spoken like this man. (John 7:46) They are right. Jesus only spoke the words of God and His word is truth. 

See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused Him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: (Hebrews 12:24-29)

Truth be told, If your heart wants to hear His voice from Heaven, just search for truth and you will hear His voice in the words of God. Have you heard His voice? The voice of Truth is only heard by the heart that is searching for truth in the words of God. Truth is the opposite of lies. There are all kinds of lies! There are deceptions, illusions, withholding info, errors, denials, black lies, white lies, blue lies, bluffs, big lies, bald-faced lies, cover ups, bull-crap, fibs, cover stories, frauds, half-truths, defamation, disinformation, exaggeration, embellishment, fabrications, fake news, mutual deceit, smears, slanders, lies by omission, lies by restructuring, honest lies, memory holes, minimizations, religious lies, noble lies, puffery, polite lies, perjury, pretense, plagiarisms, forked tongue, political lies, pathological lies, pretense, hypocrisy, hidden agendas, broken promises, distortions, vagueness, false teachings and the list goes on, all designed to deceive and manipulate humans for a multitude of reasons. This is human nature at its best. Lies hide our pride and protect the evil within. There is only one Truth. Truth is what God reveals to you when you ask Him to with all your heart. Facts will change but Truth is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) The Bible says,“Let God be true and every man a liar.” (Romans 3:4) Wow! What then was Satan’s Great lie that affected the whole human race and brought death into the world? Satan told Adam “You can be as gods, knowing good and evil. Translation: “You don’t need God. You can be your own gods, go your own way, do your own will, and live for self if you will follow me. They did. God had told them the day they disobey they will surely die. They died. The SELF-program is human nature. Self stands for Satan’s Everlasting Love of Folly. The SELF-program is opposite the SON-program. Lies are born in the hearts of men who live their lives without God. In today’s world it is hard to find any spot on planet earth that isn’t affected or tainted by the lies of religion, politics, peer pressure, fake news, racism hypocrisy and war. It’s no wonder one might think; “What is Truth?” The biggest lie of all is “you can be your own god,” or “life can be lived without God.” History testifies of the evil of human nature and the world system built on the tendency to live life for self without God.

“Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift of God. That’s why they call it the present.”

Truth is eternal, in the heavens. (2 Corinthians 5:1) Truth be told, we are not promised tomorrow. (James 4:14) Today is the gift and now is always the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2)  Jesus basically told Pontius Pilot that truth is not of this world.(John14:27, 1 John.2:15) Jesus said He left Heaven and came to this world to tell us the truth. Jesus said, “If you can hear His voice and keep listening, you will know the Truth and the Truth will make you Free.” (John 8:32) Truth liberates us from the Great Lie, which teaches the creature that living life without the creator is The Life. But Jesus goes even further than teaching about the creator by introducing God to us as the Heavenly Father. Wow!!! Heavenly Father? That is the Truth! Everywhere Jesus went He talked about His Heavenly Father! They crucified Him because He said He was the Son of God. (John 10:36, Matthew 27:43) Where else would you hear the Truth of Eternity other than the Son of God? They say truth hurts, but the truth hurts only liars and those who believe lies. That is part of the theme of the Bible.

God wants everyone to come to Heaven (John 3:16, 2 Thessalonians 2:10)
God wants everyone to know the Truth. (1Timothy 2:3-6)
Truth Comes only From God! (John 17:17)
God sent Jesus from Heaven to earth to tell us the Truth. (John 18:37)
Truth is the Voice of God through Jesus Christ.(Matthew 4:4, John 6:63, John 3:34)Everyone that is of the Truth Hears His voice.(John18:37)
Truth is Forever! Truth Never Changes! (Hebrews 13:8)
Your Next Exit is Truth for Eternity! (Matthew 24:35)

Truth is supreme in the heavens. Truth is the eternal perspective. Jesus is the only one who has ever taught the eternal perspective that flows in the spirit world. While Pilot was threatening to kill Him, Jesus, without fear, boldly said “I Am the Truth!” (John14:6) No other man has ever said that. Buddha never said that. Mohammed never said that. Buddha before he died said, “I am still searching for Truth.” Buddhism and Hinduism has had a major impact upon the world. Mohammedanism has had a major impact upon the world. Communism and Atheism has had a major impact upon the world. All forms of religion and politics have had an impact upon the world throughout history. Religion tells man what he must do for God or man, but the Bible tells man what God has done for man through Jesus Christ. The Bible is historical truth. Everything in the Bible historically happened so the Bible is not a religion, but it is history and it is the source of God’s eternal perspective. Jesus Christ has had a unique impact upon the world. Every question that can be asked by a human being has already been answered by the words of Truth from the lips of Jesus while He was here. No question has been left unanswered by the Son of God. His words are eternal. Jesus’ virgin birth is truth. Jesus’ empty tomb is truth. Jesus said“I am the way the truth and the life. No man can come to the Father but BY me.” (John 14:6) Jesus is the way to walk that is eternal. Jesus is the truth to know that is eternal. Jesus is the life to live that is eternal. Jesus is also the only way we can approach God who is the heavenly father, because He took our place in punishment upon the cross and paid the price to remove our sins from us. God declares us righteous in His sight when we believe in Jesus Christ. All believers in Jesus are welcome in Heaven. All unbelievers are not welcome in Heaven. Do you get it?

9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, He is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations (Deuteronomy 7:9) Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which He sware unto thy fathers: (Deuteronomy 7:12) To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember His holy covenant; (Luke 1:72) 

Jesus was the perfect man. In Him the divine nature of God is seen and experienced. Jesus taught that He was the Son of God and that His father God sent Him from Heaven to earth to save us from our sins. (John 3:13) Many are they that will acknowledge Jesus was a great man, that He was a great teacher, that He was a prophet, even that Jesus was born of a virgin, yet they won’t believe He was the Son of God because that would condemn their religion.(John 8:31) Jesus said God is a covenant keeping God and that He came to fulfill the eternal covenant with His own blood, that was sealed into Abraham’s flesh through circumcision. (Matthew 26:28) No religion created by men or angels is founded upon a blood covenant. Jesus is the seed of the woman (Genesis 26:3) born of the virgin that God promised Adam and Eve, and He was the seed of Abraham with Isaac’s disposition of doing His father’s will to fulfill the Abrahamic covenant for us. Jesus was also the seed of David, the promised one to come. This theme runs throughout the whole Bible from the beginning (Genesis 3:15, Hebrews 13:20) unto the end starting with the first promise of the Bible.

And I will put enmity between you (Satan) and the woman, and between your offspring (Satan)  and hers (Jesus); He (Jesus) will crush your head (Satan), and you (Satan) will strike His (Jesus) heel. (Genesis 3:15)

The whole Bible from beginning to end, revolves around this one promise made by the goodness of God and enforced by Love of God through His covenant with Abraham. There is no other place where the love of God can be found.(John 4:9) Only in the Bible do we find God’s Heavenly provision for man where all our sins can be forgiven forever(Hebrews 9:22) God sent Jesus to save us from the penalty, the power and the presence of sin (the evil nature). Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name given under Heaven whereby men MUST be saved(Acts 4:12) God loves you and He is willing to forgive you of your sins. (2 Corinthians 5:19) Jesus has paid the price for you to go to Heaven. (Acts 13:39) God will quicken you by His supernatural power in your heart. (John 5:21) All you have to do is believe in the one whom God has sent, His Son Jesus Christ. (John 6:29) But that’s not all! Even though your sins are gone, God also wants to give you His divine nature so you can live in Heaven forever with Him. That is the theme of the Bible. Forgiveness of sins alone doesn’t get us into Heaven. (John 3.1-7) Forgiveness of sins makes it possible for us to come back into fellowship with God. You must make the wise choice Adam failed to make in the Garden of Eden and when you do the Bible says you will be born again. (1Peter 1:23) Your choice to believe the word of God makes you fit for Heaven. (2 Peter 1:4)

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.(John 6:29) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

It’s that simple! Your sins are gone as far as God is concerned. Jesus suffered things beyond our imaginations to take away our sins. Now all you have to do is believe in Jesus Christ and you will be born again of His divine nature. One day your body is going to die but the real you inside your body is going to continue existing. However, where you spend eternity depends upon you, not God. Jesus has made it possible for you to live forever in Heaven with Him, The Bible says all you have to do is believe Him. When you believe in Him, your heart, your human spirit becomes alive unto God and you begin to understand the divine perspective and love God. That’s why God wrote the Bible, so you could understand Him and live unto God and not die. God wants you in Heaven. Through believing in Jesus Christ we go through a spiritual change in our hearts with His divine nature that makes us fit for Heaven. The same power of God that raised Jesus from the dead quickens our hearts making us alive unto God, as we believe in Jesus Christ. Only Jesus has the supernatural power to change our wicked, selfish, human hearts so we can love God and love man they way love is experienced in Heaven. Only Jesus can give us His divine nature and His eternal perspective so we can experience the love of God.

Truth of Death and Life Can Only Be Found in the Bible!
Truth that God is Love and that He loves us can only be found in the Bible!
Truth is the balance between blessing and cursing!

Truth is not Reality without Jesus’ Resurrection!
The Truth is “we are dead while we live” without knowing the truth of God! (1 Timothy 5:6)
The Bridge between Death and Life is the Truth of God’s Redemption!

Truth is the arrow that shoots from Heaven and hits the mark in your heart. If you are searching for Truth, you will find it in the Bible when you seek for it with all your heart. Our book Secret of Eternity is designed to open your eyes so you can clearly see Truth and UNDERSTAND the Love of GOD.You will come to understand the gospel, which means, the good news of what God has already done for you. Our books, “Secret of Eternity and Secret of Redemption,” are full, clear, proper presentations of the Gospel. You will behold the Greatness of God, the Wisdom of God, the Goodness of God, the Provision of God and the Power of God, for the Glory of God. The Heavenly Provision is astonishing. It is beyond our imagination. It is not of this world and God has provided for every soul ever born.

8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:8-12) 

Thee will come a time when your love of the Truth will save you or your hatred of the Truth will damn you forever. But God has loved you with an everlasting love and He gave up His only son that whosoever BELIEVES in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. The Bible is a divine love letter wrapped up and sealed by God with His royal seal, and sent down from Heaven with a glorious revelation inside. Everyone that unlocks the royal seal of Truth by faith will behold the power of God and learn the Secret of Eternity that lies hidden within the Bible. There will come a day when all those who love the ways of death so much that they which have refused all their lives to believe the truth, will believe a lie that will damn them forever, If you will read our new books with an honest heart, you will come to understand the thread of truth that runs through the whole Bible. God wants us to understand the Bible. God wrote the whole Bible to reveal His true secret of eternity to us, but revelation from Heaven isn’t just understood by the mind. Revelation from God comes to the heart and then to the mind. God loves you and has made provision for you. He has forgiven all your sins. (2 Corinthians 5:17.18) Jesus loves you and He wants to give you His divine nature so you can live in Heaven with Him forever. (2 Peter 1:4) God’s activates His power in you by His Spirit when you cry out to God in Jesus Name with all your heart. God’s Spirit will quicken you and give you a new Spirit and a new Heart. (Ezekiel 36:26)The Bible Tells Us So.

For of His own will hath He begotten us by the word of truth, that we might be some beginning of His creatures. (James 1:18)

Jesus said, “You Must Be Born Again.” How does the new birth take place? There is only one way we can be born of God and that is by hearing His word of Truth. The only way the human nature changes is by changing what the human believes. When we have believed a lie (you can live life without God and be your own god) our life is the product of what we believe all our lives (Luke 6:45) and the only way to experience change is by changing what we believe. We see the same principle in politics. We see whole kingdoms and countries, which differ because of the differences of their beliefs. In the Garden of Eden, the whole issue of spirituality with Adam was who would He believe. God told Adam that if he ate of the Tree of Knowledge, He would die the day he ate. Satan told Adam he could be his own god, go his own way, do his own will and live without God that he would not surely die. We know which spiritual person Adam believed and all humanity is now suffering the results of the belief system Adam chose, which is death. Adam did die the day he ate. He died spiritually, the moment he separated from God. That is why we die physically. If we are spiritually dead when we physically die, we will be dead forever. God didn’t want that and neither do we. God sent us Jesus to be our savior. He has said that by changing what we believe, we can go from death to life eternally. His historical resurrection proves He was telling us the truth. When we come to Jesus by faith, we come out of spiritual death and become spiritually alive. We are spiritually born again by believing the word of Truth. We can’t make the whole world change what they believe but we can change what we believe. Hearing and believing the Truth brings about the rebirth of the human spirit. Jesus shed His perfect blood to pay the penalty of all your sins. All you have to do to be born again is to believe the truth. The great lie of death that Satan brought into the human race will dissolve in your spirit the moment you believe the truth. You will be made alive unto God by believing the truth. The Bible calls it Faith.

For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. (1 Corinthians 15:5)

Kenneth E. Hagin once said while he was teaching, “The gospel hasn’t been preached right yet. I said it once and I’m going to say it again. The true gospel hasn’t been preached right yet.” I agree! Truth is blurry until God reveals truth to you, and until you know it, life is limited to mere mental concepts, emotions of the soul, lusts of the flesh and the pride of self. Truth doesn’t come from the outside in, but from the inside out. We put on immortality from the inside out, through Christ in us as God reveals truth unto us. Truth is the eternal mirror, which God has placed inside your heart, and until you can see Truth on the inside, you will only be able to see yourself the way you are creating yourself to be. Truth doesn’t just involve you but it also involves God. One way or another, Truth is your next and final destination. Truth may be a little blurry right now but it doesn’t have to be. Just take the exit of Truth and open up your Bible and let God talk to you. The Bible encourages the human to come to God before it is too late. (Proverbs 1:23-33) Our books, “You Can Be a Son, Secret of Eternity” and “The Operation of God, Secret of Redemption,” will open your eyes to truth for eternity.

My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. (Proverbs 2:1-5)

The Truth is God Loves You! That is why you were created. That’s why you exist. God loves everyone in the whole world with His kind of love, which is beyond our comprehension. The greatest sign and symbol of God’s Love is the cross. Billy Graham said it like this; “When Jesus hung upon the Cross with His arms opened wide, God was saying“I Love You, I Love You, I Love You.”Come to God! Talk to God! Open your heart to God! He will meet you in His meeting place of your heart, the very core of your being. Pray to God! He will hear you and answer you. Ask God to quicken you in your heart and He will give you a new life that is beyond your imagination.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. (Psalm 91:15) 

Those who respond to the Love of God deserve the blessing of God and those who won’t respond to the Love of God do not deserve the blessing of God. Which one are you? Will you open up your heart so God can open your eyes? Will you receive the heavenly provision, which God has provided for you as an eternal inheritance? You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You must give up what you cannot keep in order to gain what you cannot lose. In the Bible, God says, “Be wise my son and make my heart glad.” In another place God says, If you will humble yourselves and give your ears to my voice and cry out for my knowledge, then you will understand the Fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

God has done a wonderful work, which only God could do. God Himself has fixed your death problem. That is the truth your soul is looking for because your soul doesn’t want to die and until you find truth, you will always be under the control of the spirit of fear, which proceeds from Satan who has the power of death. (Hebrews 2:14) What God has historically done for every soul on earth includes you. It is done and can’t be undone. It belongs to you. It is the gift of God. However, until you find out what it is God has done for you, it will remain a secret, not because God is hiding something from you, but because you don’t know about it yet. God wrote the Bible to open your eyes. The Secret of Eternity is the truth that your heart is searching for. Until you find it, you will never be truly happy. God created you for His eternal purpose and until you experience the thing God created you for, your soul will never be truly happy. You will always feel like something is missing. Look up to Heaven! That’s where your help comes from. The day of death is just ahead, but there is a Secret that God wants to share with you and it provides a cure for the death problem. Don’t leave earth without it.

In today’s world, people build their opinions on what they believe to be the facts even if the facts are fake facts. In their minds they proclaim their opinions to be truth. Their passion for their opinions can almost bring their fake facts to life as reality. The say their opinions like everyone should know they are true. They speak about the possibilities of their opinions like they really happened but in the end it is only their opinion. There is so much fake news in the world today, it is hard to determine what the facts really are. The facts may change, but Truth never changes. Truth is true in Heaven and Earth. Truth is true forever, for angels and humans. God wrote the Bible to tell us the Truth. God sent Jesus from Heaven to earth to show us the Truth. Jesus died on the cross to give us the Truth. Has Truth become Reality for You? So what is Truth for You? Is it able to save you in the day of death? To most people the Truth is a secret, but it doesn’t have to be. Our book will make things clear. In our book you will read about some things you’ve never heard and never will forget. I believe as you read, you will hear a full, true, clear, proper presentation of the gospel, the Secret of Eternity.

For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of His coming, Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and in all deceitfulness of the unrighteousness in those perishing, because the love of the truth they did not receive for their being saved, And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Timothy 2:8-12)

We are born and raised to believe we can be our own gods, go our own way, do our own will, and live for SELF. the word S.E.L.F stands for Satan’s Everlasting Love of Folly. We are trained to love living life without God to promote Satan’s kingdom of darkness. Every lust is a lie that we are trained by this world to love. God says if we don’t love the truth, we are dead while we live and we are damned forever. This world will pass away but whosoever does the will of God will live forever. (1 John 2:7) Life is but a vapor that appears for a short time and then vanishes away. (James 4:14) There is coming a day when the whole world believes a lie. Only believers in Christ will escape.

Do you really want to know Truth of Life that conquers Death?
Do you want to let God open your eyes to the Truth so you can truly LIVE?

If you can pray to God right now with your heart, you will experience the Truth. What is stopping you? God will answer you and show you great and mighty things you know not. (Jeremiah 33:3) Are you satisfied with dead knowledge or do you want to experience Truth? Think about it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Truth is eternal and your attitude towards Truth and towards God has eternal blessings or eternal consequences. Challenge yourself and determine! What is Truth for you?

The Way of Cain

For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous. Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. (1 John 3:11-13)

This passage of scripture says this it the message from the beginning and it is the message for this MESS-AGE. Cain and Abel represent the two lifestyles of man, the righteous and the wicked, those that love others and those that live for SELF, those who do things God’s way and those who do things their own way. Sad to say, most humans prefer the way of the wicked to live for Self and do things their own way. There is a God in Heaven and He is the God of the whole earth. The time will come when you will have to answer before God and in that day, you will come to God in God’s way or you will come to God your own way. There is a way that seems right unto man but the end thereof are the ways of death. Notice there is a way of ways of death.

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. (Proverbs 14:12) 

Cain came to God his own way. God was not pleased with his attitude. Cain came to God with his very best. God was not impressed by his grand presentation. Yet many believers try to do that today. All of us have attitudes that are not acceptable to God. Many do their very best for God in all their strength and think there will be a reward. For example, there are those that teach that because you give money you will receive a blessing.  There are some that teach you can give money and get healed.  There are even ministries you can call and for a certain donation, they will give you a prophecy.  That kind of attitude is no better than buying something or negotiating to get a better deal. Religion will teach man what he must do for God but the Bible teaches what God has done for man.

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. (Proverbs 21:2)

In Cain and Abel, God demonstrates the two types of man, the natural man and the spiritual man. The natural man comes first. He is the firstborn. He lives for himself. The spiritual man comes after. He is the second-born. He lives to please God. The way of Cain is disobedience and the way of Abel is obedience. God isn’t impressed with the natural man who lives to please himself in defiance of God, but God responds to the spiritual man who lays down his life to love others. The natural man tries to impress God with good works but the spiritual man lives to love others in obedience to God. These are the two classes of man and we are all in one class or the other. God loves everyone and wants everyone to live, but God’s goodness and blessing in your life, has nothing to do with your good works. All through the Bible God warns us of the way of Cain.

The way of man is froward and strange: but as for the pure, his work is right. (Proverbs 21:8) 

This world system operates by money but in Heaven there is no money. In Cain’s day there was no money.  All he could give was the works of his hands.  His attitude was I can do it my way and earn God’s respect.  As a farmer, Cain was good at what he did producing fruits and flowers.  Those things were his type of income.  I would imagine his presentation was fabulous. The Bible says Cain gave God an offering with a wrong attitude.  Cain felt the works of his hands and the fruit of his labors was enough to earn God’s respect, but God corrected him. God teaches us all the way through the Old Testament “something has to die so we can live.” This was God’s way of showing us His heavenly provision in advance through His only son.

Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core. (Jude 1:11)

Many of us today follow the way of Cain.  We think we that we can do good, work hard, and give to ministries, or the poor, and God will bless us.  I have even heard sayings such as “live to give and give to live” or “give to get and give more to get more.”  I have even heard people say, “I have given God this much and God owes me back this certain amount.”  However, that is not what the Bible teaches.  That is error.  It is human nature to think “if I do good I will be rewarded.” Money has nothing to do with God accepting us.  God accepts those who have put their trust in the work of Christ and and have faith in the lordship of Christ.  Everything Christ did was for us. The Bible challenges us to believe in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ and his punishment for our sins as God’s way of saving us and blessing us.  We must come to God on His terms.

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (1 John 4:18)

Abel came to God by faith. Abel demonstrated his faith by presenting to God the blood of an innocent sacrificial lamb. In this way Abel expressed his faith in the promise of God to his parents, Adam and Eve, that he would provide a savior from the Serpent’s power of death. God’s picture in Genesis shows us how to come to Him through Christ, the Lamb of God. He was the spotless lamb sacrificed for us. Jesus was punished for our sins and died in our place so we come so we could come back to God and truly live.  When we come to God with all our hearts, believing in Jesus as our innocent sacrificial lamb, who died on the Cross for us, God is pleased. God did all this so we could experience eternal life and fellowship with God.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (Luke 6:38)

All our giving should be out of an attitude of gratitude for what God has already done for us through his “heavenly provision” of the innocent sacrificial lamb, which takes aways the sins of the world.  The Bible says we are blessed of God when we are givers rather than takers. Abel believed in the goodness of God. In Abel’s day, they looked forward to the Cross having faith in what God was going to do.  In our day, we look back to the Cross having faith in what God has already done.  All our fruits and flowers (good works) do not justify (make us right) us before a Holy God. Our believing in what Jesus has done makes us right with God. Abel presented to God his offering of an innocent sacrificial lamb, and this satisfied God. Even so the perfect man Jesus Christ has presented himself to God as a our innocent sacrificial lamb of God, the just for the unjust, and He has made us right with God “if we truly believe.” The Bible is clear. If we believe in Jesus Christ, we shall be saved.

The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead. (Proverbs 21:16)

The Bible says God loves a cheerful giver and He hangs out with those who live by faith in Him. The world may hate you but you will love them and bless them. The world may despise and reject you, but God will walk with you and bless you because you trust in Him and you share in the divine nature of Christ.

Do You Believe that Jesus died for you on the cross and that His death as your substitute makes you right with God? Is Jesus your Lamb, your savior, your Lord and your King? Jesus is the King of Heaven. Is Jesus the King of your heart? Whosoever believers in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

The Operation of God

The Operation of God is the Focus of the Bible. God talked about it all throughout the Old Testament. God shows us how He accomplished it all throughout the New Testament. The Bible calls it “the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom.” Jesus said the Holy Spirit would guide us into all truth so we could understand it.

Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. Colossians 2:12 

The Operation of God is the theme of the Bible and it is also the secret key that unlocks the eternal treasure that lies hidden within your heart. Man has a problem that is impossible to solve which required a supernatural solution only God can provide. I call it the death problem. In the Garden of Eden, a great catastrophe occurred that affected every human ever born. Death has reigned over man ever since. Death was never a part of God’s original plan. Death is an enemy of God and man. In this passage of scripture, it says we not only have been crucified with Jesus but we are even risen with Him by faith in the Operation of God.

And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Genesis 3:15

Did you know that when Adam was in the Garden of Eden, you were there? Did you know that when Adam sinned you were there? When Adam broke his fellowship with God you were there. When Adam was separated from God forever you were there. It’s true. You were in Adam. The whole human race was within Adam’s loins so when he died spiritually, we all died spiritually. That is why we all die physically. The first thing God did in response to Adam’s rebellion against God and obedience to Satan, was to give us His promise to fix the death problem in Genesis 3:15. The whole Bible is about God’s methodical goodness and wisdom towards man through the Operation of God. It is the Grace of God to save every one that believes in the Operation of God through Jesus Christ.

The Death Problem was a problem that was impossible for man to solve which required a supernatural solution only God could provide. Steven Moore

God sent Jesus from Heaven to earth to fix the death problem. The Operation of God is now a historical fact, and it accomplished something that was and still is impossible for any religion to do. Through the Operation of God death was put to death bringing Life and Immortality to light.  Nobody likes surgery, but this surgery was done perfectly by God and you didn’t feel a thing. God did heart surgery and God’s scalpel cut was from Heaven to earth, and as far as the east is to the west. It was one shot that affects us in three ways.

The Operation of God was perfect and it was a complete success. It is finished, however, it is not yet fulfilled. Multitudes have yet to experience the power of God. God included you in His operation. God’s divine surgery must be activated in your heart in order to experience eternal results. In a split second, God will quicken you and you will pass from death to life in the Spirit if you will only ask Him with faith in your heart. If you want to see the power of God, just focus your eyes on the Operation of God. It’s right there in our book in black and white. Herein lies the Secret of Eternity that will change your life forever. Don’t leave life without it.

We teach about the Operation of God in detail in our book, You Can Be a Son, Secret of Eternity. This book is designed to make the Bible easy to understand, whether it is in the church, on the street, in the prison, or at home. You will read about things you’ve never heard and never will forget.

How to Be Led of the Spirit of God

There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12 

If you had an invisible all powerful Genie hanging out with you every day telling you what to do and where to go and how to prosper, you would probably pay more attention wouldn’t you? It may just be there is power available that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. Well the Bible says God is with us always, even unto the end of the world, yet how many of us allow God to supervise our events, guide us in our plans, teach us in all our ways so that we can succeed and not fail, win and not lose, prosper in all we do. The Bible says, There is a way that seems right unto man but the end thereof are the ways of death. Notice in this passage of scripture “there is A way” which ends in “the ways of death.” What does this mean? It means there is a way of life that doesn’t include God and it produces the ways of death. My way seems right, but without God, it isn’t blessed. This is part of the lesson the Bible. Have you ever thought to yourself, I thought that would work but it failed big time? It happens all the time. When the human is led by his thoughts, he is doomed to fail. It is part of the curse that is on the world. God doesn’t want anyone to fail, but most people, even in their success will fail, and ultimately it ends with the ways of death.

Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:6-9 

In this passage of scripture God says His thoughts are not our thoughts and our ways are not His ways, but they are much higher. The goal is to get God’s thoughts into us so that His ways can become our ways. This God wants also. God wants to be involved in our lives. God wants to walk with us and talk with us and bless us because He loves us, yet most of us will prefer the ways of death. The Bible calls it “being led of the flesh vs being led of the Spirit of God.” Even believers can be led by the flesh, which enjoy the ways of death.

Are most of us living Life by the natural man or are we truly practicing living by the leading of the Spirit of God? The natural man will say, “Oh, only time will tell.” the spiritual man would say, “God led me to do this or that.” Most humans are led by their thoughts. Did you know that just because you get a thought doesn’t mean it is your thought? Some thought are placed into our minds by other sources. The saying goes like this;

Sow a thought, reap an act.
Sow an act, reap a habit.
Sow a habit, reap a character.
Sow a characer, reap a destiny.

That is the way of the world. That is not God’s best. The Bible says, They that are led of the Spirit, they are the sons of God. That is God’s best. Just like parents train their kids to do what is right and not what is wrong, to do what is safe and keep them from danger, to tell the truth and not lie, to have manners, respect and common sense as they grow up, even so God trains His kids to live and walk in His divine nature. That doesn’t just mean we forgive when others treat us wrong and we apologize even though we are not wrong and we treat others they way we want to be treated. It also means we allow God to be involved in our affairs. We ask God to supervise our events. We trust God to meet our needs and we trust God to lead us by His Spirit so we can witness His power in our lives and glorify Him in our hearts.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones. Proverbs 3:5-8

I, Bonnie, have walked with God for almost 40 years and over the years God has manifested Himself in my life in a multitude of ways. I’ve experienced much pain and suffering in my life, much of which was handed to me on a silver platter. I would not say God initiated any of the pain and suffering, but God has been with me all the time. I have learned by allowing God’s thoughts in the Bible to become my thoughts. I have spent much time studying the Bible and God has a way of “bringing to my remembrance the things he has revealed unto me.” That is what John 14:26 says. “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” God’s thoughts are not our thoughts. God’s thoughts are higher than our thoughts. God can make things happen that are beyond your imagination. God’s thoughts can help you organize your errands and keep your days organized. God is a personal God who is with us all the time and likes to participate in our events and help arrange our affairs for His glory and our blessing. After all, He is God and we are not!

Over the years, I have learned how to be Led of the Spirit in a multitudes of ways. I have learned how to be led by His Voice, by the inner witness, by the unction, by the words of God, by the thoughts of God, and in this blog I want to share with you a couple of other ways of how God leads me by His eye and how I Try It On. This is one way I know you have never heard of. This is a way God has trained me and I love it because it always works for me in my life. The reason is because I know God is with me always, and every moment. When you practice the presence of God and acknowledge Him in all your ways, He directs your path. Notice also in this passage of scripture that when your attitude is right about yourself, you begin to depart from evil and it become health to all your flesh.

Let God Guide You By His Eye

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you. Many sorrows shall be to the wicked; But he who trusts in the LORD, mercy shall surround him. Be glad in the LORD and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
Psalm 32:8-11

This is one of the ways I believe God directs my path. There are times as with all of us I am doing something, but I’m talking to God while I am doing it and I don’t quite know what to do next. So I will say, “God what do you want me to do now. God pulls my eyes when He wants me to notice something. For example, I am driving past a  gasoline station and I don’t think I need gas, but my eyes are pulled to the pump and I know by that pull that I need to stop. It didn’t make any sense when I look at the gas tank but God knew I would be going on a trip the next day that I didn’t know about and when the time came, I was ready to leave at that exact moment and prepared with a full tank of gas. In that moment I realized God led me by His eye. I really believe there are times when God guides me by His eye. There is a certain awareness I get when my eyes are guided by God. In other words, I had no intention of looking at the gas station but my eyes were drawn there.

Try It On

But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things. 1 John 2:20

Here is another way I believe God directs my path. I try it on. Here is what I mean. In the natural, when I go on trip. I always ask God “Is this what you want me to do?  I don’t just do things because my flesh wants to do it. Steven and I have had this principle since we first met; “A Safe thing is a Sure Thing and A Sure Thing is a Safe Thing.” We don’t just do whatever we want whenever we want. We want God to be involved in our affairs. We want God’s instruction so we can be safe. We want God’s participation so we can be blessed. We don’t have enough years left to waste our time just walking in the ways of natural living. We want to Truly Live and Win in Life. This is what God wants also. I will say out loud, “God, Am I in your Timing? Are you leading me? Do you approve of this? Are you involved in this? Truly as I go, I can feel whether I have peace about it or not.” When I get the peace I will follow through. Without getting peace, I will wait.

The Test

First you find out how to get a yes and a no from the Lord. Ask god the question; “Do you love me?” You know what that yes will feel like. You should feel a peace in your spirit. Then you make the statement; “I’m going to commit adultery today. Then you feel what no feels like. You should feel a check in your spirit. I will stand before God and try it on. I will say out loud, “God I am going to do this or that. I will sense how I feel for a few minutes. Then I will say, “God I am not going to do this or that and then I will sense how I feel. In each case you should get a sense of how it will feel when you are led of the Spirit. When the Spirit is guiding you, there will be peace. Without the Spirit guiding you there won’t be peace. Do you get what I am saying. Over the years this habit has paid off greatly. I have seen things get arranged miraculously so that I could truly say “that was God. Only God could arrange that. Thank you God.”

Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3

Walk with God and you will be safe. God will deliver you out of trouble. We live in dangerous times and many are those who perished because they were so involved and in a hurry they didn’t pause to try it on or let God guide them. It is easy to take things for granted and do this or that because it’s a habit, a chore, an errand or an appointment. Many snares come in the guise of opportunity. One very well known gospel singer was in an airplane accident and died because he did not listen to the warning his wife gave to him. His wife had a dream the night before that he should not get on the plane and she warned him but he got on the plane and died the next day.

Mark Wahlburg should have been in one of the planes on 9/11 but he just didn’t feel right about getting on it. He had an inner witness to not get on that plane. A famous preacher did not understand the seriousness of flying in a wild storm with strong winds and he put getting to the convention at his church over hearing the wisdom of the weather and letting someone else carry the church for the one night.  That night the lead minister & his wife, the associate minister & his wife, and the pilot all died. God did not want to lose people who are preaching the gospel at that early of an age. His son is doing a wonderful job now but God is not into losing his servants early. We all make these mistakes but I want to practice all the time so when the time comes that I am responsible for four other lives, I don’t make the wrong decision for everybody that is with me.  This is not condemnation. This is the wisdom of God.

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:14

I have learned I have to be able to tell when Grace is carrying me versus the flesh making me work to get something done out of timing and God is not in it at all. Lots of times I have practiced trying it on to sense if God was in my journey on trips even if I was just one hour away, and if I felt He wasn’t, I turned around and went home.

One time God prompted me to go on a Thanksgiving journey & I kept checking with God to see if I was suppose to go, I could feel Grace carrying me and not the coldness of the flesh working things out. However, I still didn’t know the purpose of the trip. When I came over the last mountain over 1400 miles from the city I currently lived in, I felt like the Lord downloaded to me the purpose of the trip and who I was to meet with and the purpose of the meeting. If I had not stepped out in faith, I would have missed this person in the service who was being transferred out of the state to South Korea. God needed this person to do something before he left. He is one of those thinkers that has to think about stuff for days, weeks, etc. before he pulls the trigger. He finally said to the person with me, “She isn’t leaving until I do this, is she?” This person said, “Nope.” Now it has been 3 years and God blessed him so much by applying some pressure to his slow boat mentality. Since then he has applied a “Git Er Done” philosophy especially when he knows he is leaving for 6 to 9 months. You might think” how pushy of me,” but if the truth be told, his name was on the car, and the lease was already over and it should have been turned in 6 months before this moment. The slow boat thinker needed to understand, now is the time. Do it now!

It is amazing how God comes to bless us, and we even resist the blessing because we don’t like how God has chosen to do some things. Yet Blessed is God’s Best! God wants to walk with you and bless you, but you have to walk with Him and learn of Him, and some of your ways will need to be altered along the journey of life.

For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Romans 8:5-9

Our thoughts are not always His thoughts. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. The carnal mind is enmity against God. The scripture is saying, “The mindset of the natural man is against God and hates the things of God and isn’t interested in God actively participating in his life. That mindset is part of the lifestyle of living without God, which the Bible calls death. The Bible teaches when we live life without God we are dead. The mind of the natural man exalts itself against the Spirit. The intellect is actually a slower piece of equipment than the Spirit of God which travels at the speed of light and is very versatile, and can transform things very quickly.  Many times the Spirit of God works quickly and silently because it is how you get in front of the opposing forces. In football they don’t tell the other team what play they are going to run next. The element of surprise gives each team the advantage to get a play run without much interference. Even so, God won’t tell you many times what He is doing, God’s plan just unfolds before your eyes without any demonic interference, if we just walk with God and work with God.

And we get to say, “Wow God, that was amazing!”

“The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon.”

 “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon.”
Judges 7:20

Gideon ordered his men to do two things: covering up a torch in an earthen pitcher, he bade them, at an appointed signal, break the pitcher and let the light shine, and then sound with the trumpet, crying, “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon! the sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!” This is precisely what all Christians must do.

First, you must shine; break the pitcher which conceals your light; throw aside the bushel which has been hiding your candle, and shine. Let your light shine before men; let your good works be such, that when men look upon you, they shall know that you have been with Jesus.

Then there must be the sound, the blowing of the trumpet. There must be active exertions for the in-gathering of sinners by proclaiming Christ crucified. Take the gospel to them; carry it to their door; put it in their way; do not suffer them to escape it; blow the trumpet right against their ears.

Remember that the true war-cry of the Church is Gideon’s watchword, “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!” God must do it, it is His own work. But we are not to be idle; instrumentality we are to be used as “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!”

If we only cry, “The sword of the Lord!” we shall be guilty of an idle presumption; and if we shout, “The sword of Gideon!” alone, we shall manifest idolatrous reliance on an arm of flesh: we must blend the two in practical harmony, “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon!” We can do nothing of ourselves, but we can do everything by the help of our God; let us, therefore, in his name determine to go out personally and serve with our flaming torch of holy example, and with our trumpet tones of earnest declaration and testimony, and God shall be with us, and Midian shall be put to confusion, and the Lord of hosts shall reign for ever and ever.
