Beacon of Truth
Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness
Most people today consider that telling a lie, that they
know is not the truth, is bearing false witness. BUT, God
would have you to know, that EVERYTIME you open your mouth
to say anything, to anybody, you are giving your witness
to them, and Him! You cannot "turn off" what the Lord
Jesus Christ, hears and sees..."the eyes of the Lord, are
in every place, beholding the good and the bad". We serve
or do not serve, a living God, who hears and sees all!
When we open our mouths and speak we are either confirming
what we know to be the truth of God, or we are perpetuating
the lies of the devil! There is NO-IN BETWEEN! You may say
"well what I was speaking about, had nothing to do with
the Lord". You may think so, but everything you do and say
has everything to do with the Lord! The reason for this:
" By our words we are justified, and by our words, we are
condemned". So, the point IS, that everything we say, WILL
be judged, as everything we do will be also judged, BY
the WORD OF GOD, come the day of the great white throne
judgment! What determines, how, we will be judged is HOW
we take, and handle the MEANINGS OF GODS WORDS! If we say
we believe, but do not ACT, on our beliefs, then we are
BEARING FALSE WITNESS. The ONLY WAY, a person can speak,
and NOT, bear false witness, is to speak the truth of Gods.
What IS, the truth of Gods? The truth of Gods, is this:
By us knowing that God knows ALL, and hears ALL, what we
speak must line up with what God meant in His Holy Word,
the bible. Does this mean, that if we do not understand
ALL, of the Holy word, then we are blaspheming EVERY TIME
we open our mouths? Put it this way...if you have not come
to the knowledge of confessing, the Lord Jesus Christ as
your savior, then yes! He is the ONLY WAY, by His spirit
of grace and truth, that a man may know how, to rightly
divide Gods truth! He IS, the spirit of truth! A man of
God, HAS, to accept GODS WORD, as the ONLY truth. He will
never believe men's words OVER, Gods word. For Christ
himself, WOULD NOT RECEIVE THE TESTIMONY OF MEN! He would
hear it, but everytime, he would lovingly correct and
admonish men, to HIS TRUTH. Does NOT, the word of God say:
" Let every man be a liar, and the word of God true"?
If you have been taught by men, instead of God, to believe
the things that men say, COME TO CHRIST, for He IS, the
way the TRUTH, and the life! When His spirit comes, He
brings with Him, the WORDS OF LIFE ETERNAL! He says "when
the spirit of truth comes, He shall teach you ALL THINGS!
God means EVERY WORD OF THIS! This is why He spoke: Call
no man rabbi, for you have but one teacher, who is in
heaven! God WANTS TO BE, your teacher! Even if you have
nothing to do with Him, He STILL TEACHES YOU..for His
word. is judgment, and love, and if He must chastize you
with peril, hardship and EVIL, to show you that what God
says in His word is true...He will, God is "not mocked"
whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap! If you
sow evil, then just get READY TO REAP EVIL!! For this is
written in Gods word, and His judgment is just! I am not
speaking about getting punishment, on judgment day, I am
talking about.....RIGHT NOW, this very moment! If you sow
love, then you shall reap love. When we speak meanings
of words that are mens meanings instead of Gods meanings
then we are "bearing false witness" to God! And the word
sayest..." whosoever speaketh or maketh a lie, shall NOT
enter the gates of heaven. So please, for your own sake,
learn Gods words, learn Gods meanings, thru the spirit of
Christ, for when the spirit comes, He will let you always
know the difference between what is right in Gods eyes,
and what is wrong, in His sight...this is HOW, He teaches
us, thru His spirit! How will you know when His spirit
comes? He will bring with Him, the Love for your brother
that He wants you to have, and He will CHANGE YOUR
TESTIMONY! You will then have spiritual eyes that see
and spiritual ears that hear! You will then "see" what
God means in His word when He says: " It is the things
that are NOT seen, that control the things that are seen!
Praise God, for in every circumstance, He is IN CONTROL!
