Spirit and Truth for real

Updated on October 12, 2010

When you trust man rather than Yahweh/ Jehovah, then you suffer spiritually.

 

When you trust man rather than Yahweh/ Jehovah, then you suffer spiritually.

 

Jeremiah 17:5-6 (American Standard Version)

 5 Thus saith Jehovah: Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from Jehovah.

 6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, a salt land and not inhabited.

 

If you wholeheartedly trust Jehovah, then peace is yours.

 

2 Chronicles 16:9 (American Standard Version)

 9 For the eyes of Jehovah run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly; for from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

 

Jehovah is not partial.

 

Acts 10:34-35 (American Standard Version)

 34 And Peter opened his mouth and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

 35 but in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is acceptable to him.

 

Seek Intensely to Find

Proverbs 2:1-5 (American Standard Version)

Proverbs 2

 1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, And lay up my commandments with thee;

 2 So as to incline thine ear unto wisdom, And apply thy heart to understanding;

 3 Yea, if thou cry after discernment, And lift up thy voice for understanding;

 4 If thou seek her as silver, And search for her as for hid treasures:

 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of Jehovah, And find the knowledge of God.

 

The Meaning of the Fear of Jehovah.

 

Proverbs 8:13 (American Standard Version)

 13 The fear of Jehovah is to hate evil: Pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, And the perverse mouth, do I hate.

 

Keep on seeking

Acts 17:11 (American Standard Version)

 11 Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of the mind, examining the Scriptures daily, whether these things were so.

 

Matthew 7:7-8 (American Standard Version)

 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

 8 for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

 

Jehovah is ONE.

 

Deuteronomy 6:4 (American Standard Version)

 4 Hear, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah:

 

God is love.

 

1 John 4:8 (New International Version)

8Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

 

 

 

 

John 4: 23, reads: Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the TRUE WORSHIPPERS

will worship the Father with spirit AND TRUTH, for, indeed, the Father is LOOKING FOR

suchlike ones to worship him.

 

Verse 24 of John 4 reads: God is a Spirit, and those worshiping him MUST worship with

spirit AND TRUTH.

 

From the above we should SEE that Almighty God REQUIRES that we worship Him in SPIRIT

and TRUTH.

 

In spirit would refer to God's holy spirit or active force. At Galatians 5:16 to 18, we read:

But I say, keep walking by SPIRIT and you will carry out NO FLESHLY DESIRE at all.

 

For the FLESH is AGAINST the SPIRIT in its DESIRE, and the spirit is against the flesh, for these

are OPPOSED to each other, so that the very things that you would like to do you do not do.

 

Furthermore, if you are being LED by spirit, you are NOT UNDER LAW.

 

Fruitage of spirit

 

At Galatians 5:22, 23 we read: On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is LOVE, JOY, PEACE,

LONG-SUFFERING, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITH, MILDNESS, SELF-CONTROL.

Against such things there is NO LAW.

 

TRUTH

 

At Psalm 119:160 it reads: The SUBSTANCE of your word IS TRUTH,

And EVERY righteous judicial decision of yours is to TIME INDEFINITE.

 

Jesus Christ has said that he had the TRUTH from God, whilst accusing some Jews of following

Satan, the father of the LIE.

 

At John 8: 40, it reads: But you are seeking to kill me, a man that has told you the TRUTH that

I HEARD FROM God. Abraham did not do this.

 

John 8: 44 reads: You are from your father the Devil, and you wish to do the desires of your father.

That one was a MANSLAYER WHEN HE BEGAN, and he did not stand fast in the TRUTH,

because truth is not in him. WHEN HE SPEAKS THE LIE, HE SPEAKS ACCORDING TO

HIS OWN DISPOSITION, because he IS A LIAR and the FATHER OF [THE LIE].

 

TRUTH, then, is FROM God Almighty, as related by INSPIRED men and women, and recorded

in the Holy Scriptures [Bible] for OUR BENEFIT, whilst ANYTHING that is NOT IN

AGREEMENT with the Bible, ORIGINATES from Satan, the Devil.

 

2 Peter 1: 19 to 21, read: Consequently we have the prophetic word [made] more sure, and you

are doing well in PAYING ATTENTION to it as to a LAMP SHINING in a DARK place, until

day dawns and a daystar rises, in your HEARTS.

 

For you know this first, that NO PROPHECY of Scripture springs from any PRIVATE

INTERPRETATION.

 

For prophecy was at NO TIME brought by man's WILL, BUT men spoke from God as they

were BORNE ALONG by holy spirit.

 

At John 17: 15 to 24, we SEE Jesus Christ [anointed One], requested that God Almighty WATCH

OVER his disciples because of the WICKED one. He showed that they were NO PART of the

world [no allegiance to ANY man-made government or body].

Verse 17 says: Sanctify them by MEANS of the TRUTH, your word is TRUTH.

Verse 18 refers to the assignment of MINISTERING to those who will LISTEN.

The Scriptures go on to show that the WORLD would BELIEVE, BECAUSE of the UNITY of

TRUE WORSHIPERS, that is, TRUE TEACHINGS of God Almighty, Jehovah.

 

John 17: 26 reads: And I have MADE YOUR NAME KNOWN to them and WILL MAKE it

KNOWN in order that the LOVE with which you LOVED me MAY BE IN THEM and I in union with them.

 

Verse 24 shows that Jesus was LOVED by his Father, Jehovah, before the EARTH was

 FORMED. Compare with Proverbs 8: 22- 30.; Revelation 3: 14, 12; Col. 1:15-20.

      Psalm 9:10 (American Standard Version)

      10 And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee; For thou, Jehovah, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.

      It would be to our advantage, that when we SEEK the only living God Almighty, we KNOW his NAME.

      Exodus 6:3 (American Standard Version)

      3 and I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, as God Almighty; but by my name Jehovah I was not known to them.

      Exodus 3:15 (American Standard Version)

      15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, Jehovah, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name forever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.

      “Jehovah” {Heb., YHWH), God’s personal name, first occurs in Ge 2:4. The divine name is a verb, the causative form, the imperfect state, of the Hebrew verb (ha wah’, “to become”). Therefore, the divine name means “ He Causes to Become.” This reveals Jehovah as the One who, with progressive action, causes himself to become the Fulfiller of promises, the One who always brings his purposes to realization.

      The greatest indignity that modern translators render to the Divine Author of the Holy Scriptures is the removal or the concealing of his peculiar personal name. Actually his name occurs in the Hebrew text 6,828 times as (YHWH or JHVH), generally referred to as the Tetragrammaton (literally meaning “having four letters”). By using the name “Jehovah,” the Watchtower publishers of New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures, have held closely to the original-language texts and have not followed the practice of substituting titles such as “Lord,” “the Lord,” “Adonai” or “God” for the divine name, the Tetragrammaton.

      Whilst it is commendable to quote scriptures, particularly to highlight the matter of accountability, it is most important to direct honest-hearted ones on the straight and narrow path as revealed in the Holy Writings [Bible].

      It is not for naught that the scriptures mention that the entire world is being

      deceived by a malevolent force spearheaded by Satan, this is borne out at

      Revelation 12:9, 13:4, 8; 1 John 2:17, 1 John 5:19 etc. All honest- hearted

      persons need to be aware that certain fundamental truths essential for salvation as taught by scripture have been substituted by Neo-platonic, pagan influenced fallacies. The very validity of the Bible has been questioned due to incorrect renderings in certain Bible translations in order to lend support to one such fallacy. Compare 1 John 5:7, Revelation 1:11 and 1 Timothy 3:16 in the KJV vs. NIV for instance.

      Christ came to establish truth and his subsequent condemnation of the Pharisees and Sadducees [John 18:37, John 8:44, Matthew 16:1- 4] reinforced the fact that they were misleading the masses then, as the established church is doing today.

      Fallacies

      This is reminiscent of the falsehood taught by the church in the dark

      ages when they ignored the Bible and agreed with philosophers re the shape of the earth and it being the center of the universe. Historian William Manchester centuries later wrote that "the world was [believed to be] an immovable disk around which the sun revolved, and ... the rest of the cosmos comprised heaven, which lay dreamily above the skies, inhabited by cherubs, and hell, flaming deep beneath the European soil. Everyone believed, indeed knew, that" (William Manchester, A World Lit Only by Fire, 1993, p. 89). Scientists like Copernicus and Galileo were ostracized and accused of apostasy when they deduced otherwise. But the Bible had it right all along as shown at Isaiah 40:22: "There is One who is dwelling above the circle of the earth." In fact, the Bible proved to be well ahead of its time in key concepts. For example, Job 26:7 describes God hanging the earth "on nothing." This was written thousands of years before physicist and astronomer Isaac Newton discovered the invisible laws of gravity that showed the earth truly is suspended "on nothing."

      Truth

      Truth is God’s Word as recorded in the Bible [John 17:17, Psalm 119:160].

      Those who want to live must follow the One of whom Deuteronomy 18:18, 19 and supported by John 3: 35-36, 6:14, 7:40; Acts 3:19- 23 refer to. Yes,

      Jesus Christ, was sent by Almighty God [John 8:42] and spoke ONLY what

      he was told to [John 5:30, 12:49]. As Adam was the father of all mankind, Jesus is the father of all who benefit eternally from his sacrificial death [1 Corinthians 15:45, Romans 5:12, 6:23]. This is not to be confused though with the One who is Creator of all things [including Jesus himself [Revelation 3:14, Colossians 1:15, Proverbs 8:22-31, Galatians 4:14] and who CANNOT DIE [Revelation 4:10, 11].

      We bend our knees and do obeisance to Christ as God's appointed King [Luke 1:31- 33] who will rule over a cleansed earth [Philippians 2:5- 8] and who existed in heaven prior to his assignment on earth [Micah 5:2, John 17: 24, 25]. But, we worship ONLY the Father of all things, Almighty God, Yahweh/ Jehovah [Matthew 4:10, Psalm 83:18, Exodus 6:3].

      Those who refuse to render exclusive devotion [Deuteronomy 6:4] to Almighty God [whom we approach in the name of his Son] then Jesus will say to them what is recorded at Matthew 7:21- 23.

      I end with Revelation 21:8, which says: “But as for the cowards and those without faith and those who are disgusting in their filth and murderers and fornicators and those practicing spiritism and idolaters and all the liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur. This means the second death.”
