What Is Truth? Expanded 1/10/2018

WHAT IS TRUTH?

What is truth?  Where can truth be found:  can it be found from individual people; from books; from scientists?  What individual or group has the truth:  is it Black Lives Matter; Antifa; Democrats; Republicans; communists; socialists; homosexuals; lesbians; transgenderists; abortionists; CNN; MSNBC; CIA; FBI; (and the list could go on for several pages)?

It soon becomes clear that if any individual or group believes their idea or concept is true then it becomes their personal TRUTH and all opposing ideas or concepts are false by default.  Planned Parenthood and their followers believe that the abortion of unwanted fetuses is the truth and all other beliefs are inherently false or misguided.  The same duality can be found in all other pro and con constituencies within the list given in the first paragraph.

Given the information cited so far in this article, it can be said that truth is whatever the largest, most powerful, and most militaristic group claims it to be.  At least in the secular world.

However, there is TRUTH and it is only to be found in the mind, will, character, glory, and Being of God.  Where can the truth of God be found?  Only in the Word of God which can only be found in the scriptures of God which today is known as the Bible.  There are many false prophets claiming to speak words given to them by God, however, these words are only their personal opinions and/or wishful thinking.

John 18:33-38 NET  So Pilate went back into the governor's residence, summoned Jesus, and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"  (34)  Jesus replied, "Are you saying this on your own initiative, or have others told you about me?"  (35)  Pilate answered, "I am not a Jew, am I? Your own people and your chief priests handed you over to me. What have you done?"  (36)  Jesus replied, "My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my servants would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish authorities. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here."  (37)  Then Pilate said, "So you are a king!" Jesus replied, "You say that I am a king. For this reason I was born, and for this reason I came into the world — to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice."  (38)  Pilate asked, "What is truth?" When he had said this he went back outside to the Jewish leaders and announced, "I find no basis for an accusation against him.

As He was questioned by Pilot, Jesus identified “the truth”: (for this reason I came into the world — to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice).  Other New Testament scriptures attesting that Jesus is the Truth:  “full of grace and truth” John 1:14; “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” John 1:17; “rightly dividing the word of truth” 2 Timothy 2:15.

God acknowledged as the God of Truth can be found in several Old Covenant passages:

Deuteronomy 32:4 KJV  He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth (moral fidelity) and without iniquity, just and right is he.

Isaiah 65:16 KJV  That he who blesseth himself in the earth shall bless himself in the God of truth; and he that sweareth in the earth shall swear by the God of truth; because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they are hid from mine eyes.

Does the secular world accept the Word of God as the Truth?  Not at all.  Intellectuals and pundits have attempted for centuries to discredit the Biblical scriptures as the Word of God.  Prophetic works have been accused as being written after the fact such as the Greek Empire sections of Daniel and the Cyrus prophecies of Isaiah.  Others argue the Bible is basically wrong by using non-Biblical works of various secular authors (i.e. their particular opinions become truth as opposed to the real truth of scripture).  Although they may not be totally aware of it, liberals, leftists, and others of similar mindsets inherently know the Word of God speaks the truth which they viciously attack, misrepresent, or misunderstand. 

Truth does not originate from any earthly vessel such as a book or from any human being.  No poll or public opinion survey can reveal truth.  Even scientists cannot accurately discover and interpret truth.  Truth can only come from God.  Why?  Because God created reality and thus, only reality as perceived by God can be absolute truth.  Without the Word of God there cannot be any absolutes and there can be no objective universal truths.  The postmodernism concept claiming, “what is true for you may not be true for me”, is the biggest untruth existing.

Francis Schaeffer from Pearcey, N. (2005). Total truth : liberating Christianity from its cultural captivity. Wheaton, Ill., Crossway Books.

“Christianity is not a series of truths in the plural, but rather truth spelled with a capital “T.” Truth about total reality, not just about religious things. Biblical Christianity is Truth concerning total reality and the intellectual holding of that total truth and then living in the light of that truth.”

i.e. God is the author, mediator, ultimate standard, and final judge of truth.

The truth of God will set one free from the demons, both real and contrived, that contribute to the mindless violence and acts of aggression that besets many people.  There is no other method or system to free oneself.

John 8:31-32 NET  Then Jesus said to those Judeans who had believed him, "If you continue to follow my teaching, you are really my disciples  (32)  and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

God’s truth does not change.  It remains the truth from the first sentence of scripture to the last sentence.

Hebrews 13:8 NET  Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever!

John 1:1-3 NET  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God.  (2)  The Word was with God in the beginning.  (3)  All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.

Ray Gano at prophezine.com claims that 2018 marks the end of the age.  If a generation is 70 years then this year is 70 years beyond the beginning of the founding of the modern state of Israel in 1948.  Although his prophetic prediction should perhaps be taken with a grain of salt, I agree that we are extremely close to the beginning of the Millennium or the Kingdom of God.

Matthew 24:34 NET  I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.

In some form, all the nations of the world are rebelling against God and His truth.  The one-worlders including Israel-America continue to devise coups, takeovers, and wars to increase their land size and to gain additional resources such as oil and minerals.  The once vastly Christian North America and Europe have degenerated to a majority of deists, agnostics, and atheists.  The World of God and the truth of God are no longer venerated or respected.  They consider the laws and statutes of God as chains of bondage.  The nations have declared a revolt against the Creator.  God’s plan is to cure the problem, not to destroy the earth. It is to remove sin and bring heaven to earth, not to separate heaven from earth.

Psalms 2:1-3 NET  Why do the nations rebel? Why are the countries devising plots that will fail?  (2)  The kings of the earth form a united front; the rulers collaborate against the LORD and his anointed king.  (3)  They say, "Let's tear off the shackles they've put on us! Let's free ourselves from their ropes!"

I believe, from reading articles in alternative news sources that Mystery Babylon is being assaulted and taken down by Russia, China, and Donald Trump, although other world figures are assisting without my immediate knowledge.

Only when the truth of God is taught to the world will the “sword be turned into a plowshare” which is a metaphoric way to claim that war will become peace.  Without the truth of God there will be no peace.

This article was inspired by a recently heard Sunday morning sermon entitled, Truth Matters.  The message struck a powerful chord within my spirit, perhaps even more powerful than the actual message.  Everyone is clinging to various self-proclaimed truths, but there is only one Truth.  It is the:  fall of mankind; the physical embodiment of God as the Anointed One; the Gospel as proclaimed by Jesus Christ; the sinless life of the second Adam to conquer death; the crucifixion of Jesus Christ whose blood covered all sins for all time; the resurrection to eternal life of Jesus Christ as evidence that all will be resurrected and will eventually gain eternal life.

2018 - The Year of Redemption From Bondage



2018--The Year of Redemption from Bondage
By Dr. Stephen Jones:  Jan 01, 2018

A huge increase in flights to Guantanamo Bay have been seen on official sites showing all flights around the Western hemisphere. Most of those flights are listed as being “unknown,” which would probably be illegal unless these were government/military flights. The question is WHY there are suddenly so many visitors to Guantanamo Bay, coming immediately after President Trump’s Executive Order 13818 on December 20 declaring a “National Emergency.”


Strangely enough, this “National Emergency” was signed without fanfare and with very little official press coverage. Either the press is yawning, or they are too frightened to report it.

This Executive Order was signed by Trump in order to implement the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that Congress passed on December 31, 2011 and signed into law by President Obama on New Year’s Day, 2012. That was seven years ago today. Everyone complained about it back then, because the NDAA obviously stripped American citizens of constitutional rights, and everyone was afraid that a rogue government would use this law against them—i.e., the wrong people.


I too saw it as unconstitutional. But yet I recognized that the fall of Babylon was near, and suspected that this law would be used against the Babylonians, rather than against the Christians. Why? Because I saw a parallel in the story of Esther and Haman. I wrote about it in a weblog dated May 8, 2012:


It is now being reported that the end of Babylon is near, and that its leaders will soon be arrested and brought to the World Criminal Court for trial. Some time ago, INTERPOL was given the right to come here and investigate the criminal activities of our political and financial leaders. Then the NDAA law was signed into law on Dec. 31, 2011, allowing American citizens to be arrested and detained. The Babylonians think they will be using this law on us, when, in fact, it will be used on them.

Remember Haman? That was prophetic of what is about to happen here in America. Haman will be hanged on his own gallows, so to speak.

Last week the president signed an executive order recognizing the International Criminal Court (ICC). This legally allows INTERPOL to arrest the Babylonian leaders and put them on trial for the crimes listed in Revelation 17 and 18.

It appears that this is now coming to pass six years later, although the mainstream media denies it. Immediately after Trump signed this Executive Order, Defense Secretary General Mattis went to Guantanamo Bay and addressed the marines there the next day. He took with him an Associated Press reporter to cover the story.


It now appears that we have come to the end of the road for Babylon. Their weakness lies in their depravity itself. With money comes the ability to buy whatever they want, and with power comes confidence to commit depraved acts with immunity. They wanted to engage in satanic rituals of human sacrifice, black mass, unholy communion (drinking blood, urine, and eating feces), and other depraved acts, by which they hoped to maintain spiritual power.

They understood (even if most people did not) that sin empowers the law to bring judgment. Therefore, they commit the worst sins possible, knowing that the law of God would be required to judge the nations of the world by turning them over to ungodly rulers—themselves. This warped understanding of the law of God has not been countered sufficiently over the years, because most Christians have not really understood the law. Many know something is wrong, and they pray for righteous government, but they have not known how to bring it to an end by applying the principles of the divine law. Most know that the solution is the blood of Jesus, but they lack understanding of the laws of blood.

Mystery Babylon, then, has succeeded for a long time in putting a spell upon the people that they rule, keeping them blind and ignorant of their devices. However, in their paranoia, they have sought to pass laws that would allow them to imprison those who would never agree with their depravity is good. They have always done their sin in secret until they had time to normalize it within the culture.

In my view the NDAA was passed to give them the legal right to detain those who disagreed with their immoral depravity. But their time has now come to an end, as of 2014-2017. I believe that 2018 will see huge changes as the satanists are exposed and removed from positions of power. Good people have always worked for wicked rulers and depraved department heads. The good people are now rising up and overthrowing the evil ones.

Trump’s new Executive Order essentially is using the NDAA (Haman’s gallows) against the very people who intended to use the it against the righteous ones. Time will tell, but it appears that arrests are being made, and many are being transported to Guantanamo Bay for trial in front of a military tribunal, similar to the Nuremberg Trials of the 1940’s following World War 2.

This is good news. Many Christians are still thinking in terms of a future Antichrist rising up in the midst of “The Great Tribulation,” so they view the future with fear, hoping to evacuate the earth before that time comes (in a “rapture”). They do not realize that antichrists have been with us for a long time, and that the Tribulation began with Jerusalem’s downfall in 604 B.C. That tribulation was a divine contract with the “beasts” of Daniel 7 and the book of Revelation, allowing them to rule for “seven times” (7 x 360 years). That time ended at our Tabernacles conference in October 2017.

We are now seeing the overthrow of the beasts and their depraved rule. Those of us who understand the times and seasons have every reason to be hopeful in the coming year. The year 2018 is the Year of Redemption from Bondage. Twenty is the number of redemption; Eighteen is the number of oppression or bondage. We will see many changes this year.

Further Confirmation From Benjamin Fulford


In a historic moment of poetic justice, most of the U.S.-based top perpetrators of the fake “war on terror” have now themselves been renditioned to the U.S. Navy camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Pentagon sources say.  “The Rothschild assets George Soros, Peter Munk, Peter Sutherland, the Bushes, the Podestas, and many others may have been airlifted to Gitmo for military tribunals, as the Department of Defense spends $500M to upgrade the prison and send more military police and Marines,” the sources say.

In one of many signs of just how historic the new American revolution is, “30 congressmen will not be returning in the new year,” the Pentagon sources say.  CIA sources also confirm that former U.S. President Bill Clinton, hoping for a plea bargain, is spilling the beans on people like former CIA head John Brennan, top U.S. Mossad agent Rahm Emmanuel, former Vice President Dick Cheney, and many others.
Furthemore, as U.S. President Donald Trump proclaims Janaury 2018 to be “Anti-Slavery Month,”

https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/president-donald-j-trump-proclaims-january-2018-national-slavery-human-trafficking-prevention-month/

… human trafficking centers around the world are being raided and shut down.  In Saudi Arabia, 3,000 child sex slaves have been freed, according to Russian FSB sources.  In the U.S., “there was a power outage on December 27th at the “pedo heaven Disneyland,” as the place was raided by special forces fighting human slavers, the Pentagon sources say.  In apparently connected events, Washington Post heir Bill Graham and Jordan Feldstein, the brother of the actor Jonah Hill, died last week, the sources point out.
