Truth – The Word of God

God is Truth; His Word is Truth; His Spirit Leads Us Into Truth

Isaiah 40:8
The grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of our God endures forever.

Matthew 24:35
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

There is a popular view today that truth is relative. Christianity, on the other hand, is built on the premise that truth is absolute because Jesus is Truth and that the teachings of the Bible are universal.

Postmodern views state that

  • Truth is not discovered, it is created
  • There is no universal truth
  • Truth changes according to a person’s viewpoint
  • There is no such thing as absolute truth

God tells us different. In Romans He says this:-

Romans 1:18-22
[18] For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, [19] because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. [20] For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, [21] because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. [22] Professing to be wise, they became fools.

The ultimate philosopher on life is God. He effectively declares I am the Truth and there is no other.
Truth IS NOT Relative. Truth IS Absolute because He is and there is no other.

Jesus and His Word are so synonymous that Jesus is the Word of God. John 1:1-5

Notice the scripture doesn’t say that Jesus is called the Word of God. He is the Word of God.

Truth isn’t analytically received!
We can’t break down a statement of Truth and assess whether it is Truth. It isn’t mentally assimilated.
Jesus asked Peter, Who do you say I am. When Peter identified Jesus as the Christ, Jesus said to Him that flesh and blood hadn’t revealed it to him. The Father had revealed it to him.

Truth is revealed to our spirit not to our minds.
Truth comes from the Father and is given by the Holy Spirit
Universities cannot reveal Truth to us we need the Holy Spirit for that

Into what does the Holy Spirit guide us?? John 16:5-13
Paul told the Corinthians he did not come to them with wisdom but with Holy Spirit power

1Co 2:1-5
[1] And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. [2] For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. [3] I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. [4] And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, [5] that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

We need the Holy Spirit and the Word!!
