JESUS – THE TRUTH HIMSELF SHALL MAKE YOU FREE
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on Him, If ye continue in My Word, then are ye My disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.
~ John 8:31-32
God establishes a prerequisite for freedom. That prerequisite is, if you abide, in My Word. In other words, if you do your part by living in total obedience to His Word, then you shall know the truth; and within the truth itself is all the strength and power you need to be fully free.
So the first question I want to ask you is: Are you abiding daily in His Word? Next, let me ask you: If it is the truth itself which makes us free, what is the truth? Somebody said to me, “The truth is the Word of God.” That is correct, but the Word of God is more than just a written Book. The Word is also the living Word—who is Jesus Christ Himself! 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1.
The Living Word, Jesus, is Himself the living Truth. He said… 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me. John 14:6. Therefore, it is the combination of your knowledge of the written Word, combined with your knowledge of the living Word and the living Truth (Jesus Christ) dwelling within you that is the Source of all spiritual strength! For years, many of you have been faithfully building a good spiritual foundation through your knowledge of the written Word. You know all about God’s plan of salvation, His Great Commission, the keys of binding and loosing, the “Four Spiritual Laws,” and everything else.
You may know a lot about Him through His written Word, but if you don’t know Him personally, your spiritual “house” will eventually crumble. He Himself warns…..without Me ye can do nothing. John 15:5b. The Pharisees of Jesus’ day had to face this same issue when Jesus told them:
Search the Scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of Me. 40 And ye will not come to Me, that ye might have life.
REMINDER: THE TRUTH HIMSELF SHALL MAKE YOU FREE!!!! JESUS CHRIST IS YOUR FREEDOM!!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you.
