Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered outside the gate. Therefore, let us go forth to him outside the camp, bearing his reproach. For we have no continuing city here, but we seek one to come.
Select a tract, month, or collection:
Did God tell the truth about His Son or did He lie?
We have only two choices. Either we hold that God told the truth when He sent the holy Ghost back from heaven as His witness that He "made Jesus both Lord and Christ" or we make Him out to be a liar. And it isn't up to us to judge ourselves, whether we believe God is true or a liar; rather, "the Spirit is the witness because the Spirit is truth." In other words, those who humble themselves to God and receive the baptism of the holy Ghost that Jesus gives are the ones who confess that God is true, and those who do not humble themselves to Jesus' baptism are making God out to be a liar.
Does that sound harsh or too judgmental? Remember that "the Spirit is the witness", and listen to these two statements from the apostle John, first from John 3:33:
"He who receives His witness has set his seal that God is true."
And now, from 1John 5:10:
"He who believes on the Son of God has the witness in himself; he that does not believe God has made Him a liar because he does not believe the witness that God gave of His Son."
Is God true or false? Your answer cannot be a simple, verbal, "yes" or "no". Your answer is the answer of your soul's condition: do you, or do you not have the witness, the holy Ghost baptism, God's personal testimony, that He has indeed "made this same Jesus both Lord and Christ"? If so, your heart has believed that God is true. If not, then you must repent for making God out to be a liar.
