`If you abide in My word (hold fast to My teachings and live in accordance with them), you are truly My disciples. And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free. (AMP)
Other facts that people tend to believe, thinking that they are Truth, are ones like sickness and poverty. The facts may be that your body is hurting or there’s no money to pay the bills but the Truth is that Jesus died for our sickness and poverty.
1 Peter 2:24 who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.(NKJV)
3 John 2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.(NKJV)
11 Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.(NKJV)
He is faithful and just. He is true to His Word and His promises. He cannot and will not lie.
Numbers 23:19 tells us, “God is not a man, that He should tell or act a lie, neither the son of man that He should feel repentance or compunction (for what He has promised). Has He said and shall He not do it? Or has he spoken and shall He not make it good?” (AMP)
Jesus was not free because He didn’t sin. He didn’t sin because He was free. He knew the Truth of God’s Word in His life. It is so easy, so simple yet satan has had us chasing our tails for decades giving us rules, regulations and as a friend said to me not long ago, all you seem to hear are the 4, 5, 8 or even 10 step plans to freedom. But the simple truth is that the way to freedom is in knowing the Truth – knowing God – knowing His Word.
The Truth of God’s Word
2 Tim 2:20 If we are faithless (do not believe and are untrue to Him), He remains true (faithful to His Word and His righteous character), for He cannot deny Himself. (AMP)
Even when we trip up and fall down, make mistakes or blow it God’s Word stands firm.
1 Peter 1:24,25 For all flesh (mankind) is like grass, and all its glory (honor) like (the) flower of grass. The grass withers and the flower drops off. But the Word of the Lord (divine instruction, the Gospel) endures forever. And this Word is the good news which was preached to you. (AMP)
Luke 1:37 For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment. (AMP)
1 Peter 2:6 Behold, I am laying in Zion a chosen (honored), precious chief Cornerstone, and he who believes in Him (who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him) shall never be disappointed or put to shame. (AMP)
People will always disappoint us but God’s Word, God’s Truth is that He shall never disappoint us.
Psalm 119:89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven (stands firm as the heavens). (AMP)
Matt 24:35 Sky and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. (AMP)
John 1:1 In the beginning (before all time) was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. (AMP)
The Word is Jesus and Jesus is the Truth – it is that Truth, that Jesus, that Word that sets us free and that alone.
God’s Word (Truth) prevails!!!!!!! Jesus gave His life so we could walk in the same Truth and Freedom that He walked in. Let it not be wasted …..Let’s jump in over our heads and GO FOR IT!!!!!!!!!! We have the Truth on our side and living inside of us so nothing can defeat us.
