THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES.*


*Scripture Treasure.*

John 8:44 *Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

A person who habitually tells lies will not be believed, even when he speaks the truth.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

The general truth to those who tell lies is that lies are condemned by God.

One of the truths about lies is that a lie may appear to gain grounds for sometime, it can not tarnish the truth.

We live in a world where people suffer for telling the truth.

People are often enticed, provoked, and incited to encourage lies, 1 Kgs 21:1-15

Always remember truth is power, and it can survive time. One day, the truth will reveal itself, and the truthful will enjoy God's presence and are justified. 1 Kgs 21:18-26.

The importance of the truth is clearly seen in the word of Jesus. Jesus, the Truth, says the Truth is the way, the truth, and the life, John 14:6.

There are several other truths about what a lie is:

First, a lie is the first sin in the bible, and it is the last sin condemned in the Bible.

The serpent told Eve that what God told Adam was a lie.

In Gen 3: 4, the serpent said to Eve, *"......Ye shall not surely die:*

In Rev 22: 15 *For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.*

Second, Satan is the father of lies.

John 8:44 *".....from the beginning,..."*

he *"....abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.*

From his lie in Gen 3, he became the father of lies.

Jesus said about some Jews in His time saying they were like the devil. John 8:44 *Ye are of your father the devil,.....When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.*

Third, a liar can not be assured of the presence of God.

Psalm 24:3-4 says that those who can ascend into the hill of LORD or stand in His holy place are those that have *"....clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.*

He who tells a lie is probably not aware of the great task of how many lies he would need to invent in order to maintain his initial lie.

Do not lie to yourself how much more to other people. When a person lies to someone, no other words he says will be considered as true. The truth about his lies is that no more truth is expected from him or desired from him. He falls into disrespect towards himself and others.

Lying may be sweet at the beginning, but the mouth that lies will at the end be full of gravels.


*Remorse corner.*

The truth about a lie is that a lie is a lie. It is evil, and it does not matter whether you tell it with good intent or bad intent.


*Call to Word action.*

Truth may sound bitter, but it is better than the sweetest lie.

Proverbs 20:17 *Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

You do not need to defend yourself when you tell the truth. God will always vindicate the truth. It is a matter of time.


*Prayer.*

Lord, help me to tell the truth, always in Jesus name.


Good morning all, and be blessed as you come into His presence today.


God bless you.
