Truth, What is It?

Is there any truth left in this world one must follow? Or is it dead? What is really truth? Outside of its spiritual meaning, truth is conformity with facts and reality (Webster’s dictionary). Buy the truth and sell not; not only that, but also get discernment and judgment, instructions and understanding (Prov. 23:23). Where truth has fallen, falsehood, lies and dishonesty have taken its place. Paul warned us in II Thessalonians 2 that the coming of the lawless one is through the activity and working of Satan and will be attended by great power and with all sorts of miracles and signs and delusive marvels, and by unlimited seduction to evil and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they did not welcome the Truth but refused to love it that they might be saved. Therefore, God sends upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false (II Thess. 2:9-11).  We live in the days of errors, misleading, lies and confusion. These are days precursor of the tribulation time, when the devil will take control of this world through the antichrist. What we are experiencing right now is the introduction of Satan’s way of governing the world. Evil, seduction, errors. Many are believing and following the delusion, by believing lies and fighting the truth. The Prophet Isaiah writes about Israel’s spiritual condition in chapter 59: 12-15 which is also a picture of today’s world’s spiritual condition:  justice is turned away backward and righteousness stands far off; for truth has fallen in the street and uprightness cannot enter [the courts of justice]. Yes, truth is lacking, and he who departs from evil makes himself a prey. And the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no justice (Vs.14-15). The time will come when the Lord will not observe the growing evil in this world without judging it. He is longsuffering, not wanting that men should go to hell; He keeps waiting for them to have a change of heart. But it will not be forever. Right now, judgment is at the door.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
