The Truth

The truth shall make you free

John 8:31-32

I started this journey walking with God to find the truth. The truth of God, the truth of this world, and the truth of my existence. If there is nothing to this existence, then there is no point in it; hence, it is significant to find the answer to this question.

The testimony of Jesus and the everlasting gospel is crucial in understanding the truth. Revelation 19:10 shows that worshipping God is the testimony of Jesus. Revelation 14:6-7 shows that worshipping God is the everlasting gospel.

Since the testimony of Jesus and the gospel are to worship God, consider Jesus’s statement that no one can get to the Father unless it’s through him (John 14:6). This statement would indicate that Jesus is the doorway to God and knowing how to worship God.

All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whom soever the Son will reveal him.

Matthew 11:27

Jesus

How do we access the doorway?

To know God and to know how to worship, the Son must reveal him to you. Only the Son knows the Father and the way to the Father (John 5:19); the Son does what he sees the Father do. If we know Jesus, we know the Father (John 14:7) since Jesus is the Son and does the Father’s will (John 6:38-46).

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:6

To know God is to know his will, and Jesus knows the Father and does the Father’s will. Jesus came and gave us a first-hand view both in words and deeds of the Father (John 14:3-12). If we, therefore, know Jesus and continue in his word (John 8:31-32), we will know the Father.

The Truth is Jesus. The Word is Jesus. Jesus, his words and deeds, show us who the Father is and what is pleasing in his sight.

Jesus did not compromise or remove what came before but restored the original words and intentions of God, eliminating the handwriting of ordinances by men (Colossians 2:14) and sat on the seat of judgement (Revelation 1:18) as our high priest (Hebrews 4:14-16) and brother (Hebrews 2:11). Jesus didn’t mince his words, hide in the shadows or under cover of organisations. His example shows that he did not entrust himself or testify of men (John 2:23-25) but only of God.

I have shone a light on the Son, who, as the bright morning star (Revelation 22:16) has shone a light on the Father. Jesus is the example we must follow; he is the truth.

Since Jesus is the truth, testified of God, declared that he and God are one, saying he does the will of the God, and he will raise in the last day everyone God sends to him, therefore — God is the truth.

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

Matthew 10:26
