What is Truth?
The definition of the word Truth is most often used to mean: in accord with fact or reality, or fidelity to an original or to a standard or ideal.
In today's society truth seems very hard to come by. There is much confusion and division between different denominations of churches as to what is truth and what Scripture teaches.
'The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.'
John is talking about YaHuWaH's Son, Messiah Yahushua and says that He came full of truth.
Paul says in 1 Timothy 2 v 3-7
'For this is good and acceptable before Elohim (God) our Saviour, who desires ALL men to be saved and to come to the KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH. For there is one Elohim (God), and one Mediator between Elohim (God) and men, the Man Messiah Yahushua, who gave Himself as a ransom for all...'

Paul is saying that our Father wants each one of us to come to the knowledge of truth.
We can only be saved if we come to the knowledge of truth. In the 2,000 years since the Messiah walked the earth, man has sought to hide the truth and twist the truth of the scriptures. Man has sought to control people through man-made religious systems and put themselves above others, seeking to act as Mediators between us and our Father. There is only ONE Mediator between our Father and men - Messiah Yahushua.
Paul writes in Romans 1 v 25:
'Who changed the truth of Elohim (God) into the falsehood, and worshipped and served what was created rather than the Creator?'
Even 2000 years ago the truth was being changed into falsehood. Satan is the father of all lies and in Revelation 12 v 9 it states:
'and the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old called the devil and satan, who leads all the world astray...'
Satan is intent on leading the whole world astray. Make sure you haven't been fed any of his lies.
In 2 Timothy 4 v 3-4 we are warned:
'Or there shall be a time when they shall not bear sound teaching, but according to their own desires, they shall heap for themselves teachers tickling the ear, and they shall indeed turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to myths.'
We must make sure that we are listening to the truth and not just hearing what we want to hear.
John 4 v 23-24
'But the hour is coming and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, for the Father also seeks such to worship Him. Elohim is Spirit, and those that worship Him need to worship in Spirit and in truth.'
We are to worship our Father in spirit and in truth.
Yahushua warned us in Matthew 15 v 8-9
'This people draw near to Me with their mouth, and respect Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me.
But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.'
We therefore need to be very sure that we are worshipping and believing in truth and not following after the traditions and doctrines of men.
In John 8 v 32 Yahushua says:
'And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.'
This would indicate that if you are not in the truth, you are not free.
Scripture states that we are destroyed through the lack of knowledge.
Our Creator IS truth and scripture says that those who worship Him should worship in 'spirit and in truth'. We all know that there is only one truth and it is found in His Word.'
Psalm 86 v 11 says
'Teach me your Way, O Yahuwah, let me walk in Your truth; unite my heart to revere your Name.'
This prayer written by David links truth and being united in heart to revere our Father's Name.
Do you know our Father's Name? (click here for more information.)
In Psalm 119 David states that our Father's truth is for all generations and is everlasting. He also goes on to say in verse 142 and 151 that our Father's laws / commandments are truth. In verse 160 David states that the entirety of the Word is truth.
If we don't know our Father's Name, His commandments or read His Word how will we find truth?
We will only find truth if we come to know our Father and no one comes to the Father except through the Son. In order to find truth we must believe in the Son. What does Messiah say about truth? In His own words in
John 14 v 6 He says:
'I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.'
The Creator's Son, Yahushua is Truth. He walked in Truth and taught Truth
TRUTH IS IMPORTANT.
Please search out the truth in Scripture for yourself, read and re-read the truth that Yahushua taught, read the articles on this website, don't just believe everything your pastor says. Do some research and find out the TRUTH. Ask your Father, Yahuwah to help you find truth. Make sure that you are not following after the doctrines and traditions of men..
The truth always wins out in the end!
May YaHuWaH baruch (bless) you as you seek out His truth.
