Topic: I AM THE TRUTH
Bible Reading: John 14:6
📖6….”Jesus saith unto him,… I am the truth…: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
🔥The Old Testament was founded on figures and shadows of reality. These figures were not substantial. They were sacrifices that were offered continuously in anticipation of the once and for all sacrifice of Jesus Christ, called Atonement (At-One-Moment). The coming of Jesus Christ has turned these shadows to substances. Hence Hebrews 11:1 says faith is the substance of things (i.e the sacrifices), the Old Testament made people to hope for. God built the New Testament on truth so that Satan, the father of both liars and lies, according to John 8:44, and the liars themselves, will not be able to find their ways into His kingdom, they cannot be truthful.
🔥🔥The New Testament is built on the truth that the Old Testament foreshadowed. This truth is Jesus Christ. In John 8:32, Jesus said that, for anyone to be free from the troubles and challenges of this world, he or she must know the Truth. This Truth to be known, is Jesus. When Pilate jested words with Jesus in John 18:37-38, and Jesus told him that those who support the truth, would hear his voice, Pilate was convicted and confessed that Jesus was innocent. Truth indeed, makes free.
🔥🔥🔥Therefore, beloveth, it is crystal that those without truth in their lives cannot approach God. Because, without Jesus the Truth, no man can come to the Father. Jesus as the true manna, is different from the Old Testament manna as a shadow. Also, according to Hebrews 8:2, Jesus is the true tabernacle, whose entrance into the world, made the Old Testament type of the Tabernacle called the Ark of Covenant to vanish…Hebrews 9:5-17. Child of God, because Jesus is the Truth, he is opposed to every error and falsehood. Follow him today, and gain God’s confidence.
🙏O Lord, use your Spirit in me to incline me to always say the truth, do truthful things and support only the truth, so that I can come to you by the truth, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Perfect and glorious Redeemer, use your truth in the Gospel to redeem all that have gone astray into offering sacrifices in the faith, even though Jesus has been sacrificed once and for all, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Heavenly father, having known your Son, Jesus Christ as the Truth, may I be made free from all my challenges, troubles and spiritual imprisonment, in Jesus’ name.
