In the days of my youth I thought truth was pretty clear.
Today, all I can say is WOW. The world is so messed up. Truth, something that should be easy to distinguish has become so twisted that most are totally clueless to what “truth” actually is.
How did it become so murky? Now I hear that “truth” is depending upon who’s truth you are speaking about. It can be different if it is my truth. If it is your truth it might be something else. Then your coworkers may have even another truth.
WHAT??? See how messy this has become? How senseless it sounds? How can you go into a court of law and swear to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth and in doing so expect for a jury to use each persons “different truth” to decide on a persons innocence or guilt?
When anyone asks a question of me and I know if I answer how I personally think I know it is time to say, let’s go to the word of God and see what the word tells us. Do the scriptures say anything about truth? Truth is mentioned in the KJV 237 times. Here are just a very few verses.
Jer 5:1 KJV Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and see now, and know, and seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth; and I will pardon it.
This next verse should cause each of us to open our eyes and look around. How fast has America gone down hill? How fast are we watching this nation transition from one horrid sin into yet one more and then one more and we are sitting in utter shock wondering what is going on. Is God trying to get the attention of any? Yet, are we refusing correction?
Jer 5:3 KJV O LORD, are not thine eyes upon the truth? thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: they have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return.
This next verse pretty much sums it up.
Jer 7:28 KJV But thou shalt say unto them, This is a nation that obeyeth not the voice of the LORD their God, nor receiveth correction: truth is perished, and is cut off from their mouth.
Jer 9:3 KJV And they bend their tongues like their bow for lies: but they are not valiant for the truth upon the earth; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they know not me, saith the LORD.
Dan 7:16 KJV I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.
Dan 7:19 KJV Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
Dan 8:12 KJV And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and it practised, and prospered.
Dan 9:13 KJV As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth.
Dan 10:21 KJV But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.
Dan 11:2 KJV And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.
Then of course we have this. (Climate change? I don’t think so.)
Hos 4:1 KJV Hear the word of the LORD, ye children of Israel: for the LORD hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land.
Hos 4:2 KJV By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood.
Hos 4:3 KJV Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away.
Blame? We only each have to look within ourselves. Stop blaming everyone. REPENT, turn to the LORD GOD now.
Hos 4:6 KJV My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Jer 8:7 KJV Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.
Jer 8:20 KJV The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.
