Sabbath Day (Gen2: 1- 3 & Ex.20: 8 – 11) ———- By r. a.—————– Saturday, Feb. 20/21
In Messiah’s (Yahshua’s) name: “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the LAW of the Lord, and on His LAW he meditates day and night…The wicked are not so…” (Ps.1: 1 – 2)
Most thinking people today are aware that we are being bombarded and engulfed with falsehoods, lies and deceptions. The media, TV, politicians, corporations, big tech, big pharma, educational institutions, internet, Intelligence agencies and religions are sources of lies and falsehoods.
Question: How does one tell the truth from a lie?
Answer: One must have a plumbline, a measuring rod, a supreme authority upon which to compare and discern the truth from the lie.
One irrefutable and undeniable truth is the fact that you and I exist. I mentioned that in a previous Sabbath Word. Rene Descartes, a philosopher (16th century C. E.) was asked to prove he existed. He answered: “I think, therefore I am (exist)“.
Since you and I exist, it is only reasonable and logical to conclude that there must be a Creator who gave us our existence. For a nothing produces nothing. It always takes a something to produce a something. We acknowledge that the Creator is that “something” who gave us the breath of life.
I stated all the above to declare this: our supreme authority for discerning the truth from a lie is the “word of the Creator-God” — the Bible -it is our plumbline, measuring rod and supreme authority.
At this point, I’d like to stress that the bible is NOT a religious book! It’s an historical account of a people, which includes a life style ordained by the Creator for his people. It’s the only ETERNAL TRUTH that exists on this earth.
Regarding the lies and falsehoods of politicians, corporations, media, etc one needs to do their own research and use their ability, intuition and six-sense to discern if what these rascals say is true or false. For example, the inauguration of Biden is a case in point where the truth was turned into the lie. The impeachment of Trump was another case in which the truth was turned into a lie.
Furthermore, if these scoundrels spew out info that is contrary to what the bible reveals, one can easily determine if they are liars or truth-tellers. For instance, if they claim it’s acceptable/lawful to be a homosexual, abort babies and that God’s law is abolished, etc., they are liars.
Our supreme authority, the word of the Creator, the Bible, condemns these devilish and misguided man-made values.
Here are just 3 biblical sources who turn the truth into a lie.
(1) Fools: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. (Rom. 1: 22,23, 25)
(2) False Teachers/Prophets: Then the Lord (Creator-God) said unto me, the prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not…they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart. (Jerm.14: 14)
(3) False Witness: “You shalt not raise a false report: put not your hand with the wicked to be an unrighteous (false/lawless) witness”. (Ex.23: 1)
In conclusion: Here a 2 min vid by Oprah Winfrey who claims “that one of the mistakes we humans make is that we believe there is only one way to the Creator-God when there are many paths to God”.
Oprah turns the Truth into a Lie! Messiah stated thus: “Jesus said to him (Thomas), “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”. (Jn.14: 6) This is an ETERNAL TRUTH!
All glory, praise and honor to the Creator-God, the great I AM, in Yahshua’s (Messiah’s) name.
Peace, blessings and protection to all who seek and love the truth – God’s Word (Jn.17: 17 & Ps.119: 142)
