Jesus is The Truth

Sometimes, there are posts on my "As He Is, So Are We Ministries" Blog that are so important, I post them for others to read here.
I do not seek to needlessly offend, but the Truth which has set me free is the Truth which I wish to share with more people as much as possible.
Thanks again for all who read and share. -- ACS
Truth is something which rests outside of us. Truth is a Person manifested to the world through Word of God.

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." 9John 14: 6)

Jesus was either telling the truth, or he was a massive fraud. To call Him a good man, or a great teacher, or an inspiring leader is fundamentally meaningless in the face of this bold statement.

Either He is the Truth, or He is not -- and everyone person on this earth must accept this Man, or rather God-Man as the Truth or reject Him completely.
Researchers, philosophers, thinkers, and debaters have assailed the word of God, yet the Bible has a standard which has not failed to withstand scrutiny, attacks, and slights.

The archeology of our times as well as other major discoveriess in hard sciences have affirmed a number of truths already revealed in the Bible.

Furthermore, while our minds love to speculate, wonder, question, and fight -- the fact remains that either some exists as true, or it does not.

There is no dividing or compromising this rigid simplicity.

Either there is one God, or there is not. Either there is a Creator, or there is not.

And our capacity to recognize a full, final, and forever Power is greater than any "Higher Power".

Right away, "Higher Power" implies that there is still a power greater -- and for too many people, that power is alcohol. The massive failure rates confirm this reality.

So, truth -- and our understanding of God - cannot be subjective. It cannot, for God is not subject to us, but rather everything is subject to Him:

"19And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, 20Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, 21Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: 22And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, 23Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all." (Ephesians 1: 19-23)

And also

"15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; 20And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven." (Colossians 1: 15-20)

In Revelation, Jesus reveals Himself:

"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." (Revelation 1: 8)

and then again:

"I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." (Revelation 22: 13)

Either you believe Him or you do not believe Him.

This Man, the Truth, the Word made Flesh, is not an idle thought, but a powerful certain, He who has been from the beginning (1 John 2: 12-14).

You and I are not called to believe on something make-believe, but to believe on Him who made us, and wishes to make us more than we can possibly understand.

This Truth, this Person, is not created within us, but lives outside of us and when we believe on Him, we receive His life within us in turn.
