Truth, What is It?

Truth has become victim in the courts, at home, on the streets and everywhere else our feet touch. The Spirit of Truth – the Holy Spirit of God grieves the situation in the lives of so many called Christians. They live lives guided by deceit, believing lies and being misled by what they hear, because they have sold the truth; they are no longer in conformity with reality; they rejected discernment, instruction and understanding. They walk in darkness. Their minds are conforming to the father of lies’ mind in preparation for what is coming.  YAHSHUA asked the question, Will I find faith in the earth when I come? It is obvious to see that without truth being accepted, faith in Him cannot exist. When one cannot discern between truth and lie, iniquity has abounded in their heart and their tendency will be to believe and accept lies. The time will come when those who stand for truth will be persecuted and killed. These are extremely evil days to live in. As sons and daughters of Light, it is necessary to do what Paul instructed us to do: Let us be sober and put on the breastplate of faith and love and for a helmet the hope of salvation (I Thess. 5:8). Truth hurts, someone has said; tell me a lie; or tell me what I want to hear. Lies are like a fluffy teddy bear in one’s arms. Fake in nature, but comfortable to the touch. Unlike a true bear, which there is nothing fluffy about him, only wildness and meanness. We live in a fake world of things; from eyelids to hair, to nails to lips; to teeth and other body parts; we decorate our house with fake flowers, and greens, fake fruits and everything fake, including the foods we eat, called imitation foods. Our body has become a representation of what the times indicate: Nothing, but lies. Even our brains warn us of symptoms of disease that is not there. Psychologically speaking, we are deceived. It is all in the head, but not in the body.  The world has been geared toward lies that it is hard for many to discern the truth from it all; for that, they all fall into lies. They see, but do not perceive the truth; they hear the truth, but they do not believe the truth they hear. Since truth conforms itself to facts and reality, it has lost its essence in the ocean of lies for many.  The world is heading toward greater delusion, when lies in every way possible will be accepted and truth rejected. As a result of their unbelief and rejection of truth, we read in II Thessalonians 2:11 that God will send upon them a misleading influence, a working of error and a strong delusion to make them believe what is false. Men’s wickedness has progressively hindered and repressed the truth over the years, and made it inoperative. They are without excuse before God, for they have exchanged the truth for lies; they have had a chance to repent, but chose to continue in the path of wickedness.

Not against the truth, but for the truth, no matter how hard, even unto death, we must stand firmly. YAHSHUA, our Truth, is the Way to eternal Life. We cannot receive life eternal apart from the Truth. God warns us through the Prophet Isaiah saying, Do not walk in the way of this people, do not call conspiracy all that this people will call conspiracy; neither be in fear of what they fear, nor afraid in dread, the Lord of hosts- regard Him as holy and honor His holy name, and let Him be your fear and let Him  be your dread (Isaiah 8:11-13). Follow truth where it leads you; do not get entangled and deceived by lies that the majority of the people has embraced. Truth stands alone, clear of anything contrary to it. Truth is a light that enlightens the way for us to go straight and forwardly without doubt and confusion. The road will probably be rough, but it will be clear and concise. The few people that will follow it will surely reach to their destination.

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.
