6-26-2022 “WHAT IS TRUTH?” part2 John 18:37-38

This week Bro. Leo continues us in our study of TRUTH.

Last week we learned that the Bible is very specific that the truth of God and Gods’ truth is the only absolute truth (Gen.1:1-5, 26-27, 31, Gen.2:1, Exo.19:16-20, Exo.20:1-3, 12-17, Duet.6:4-5, Isa.45:5-8, Isa.42:8, John 1:1-3, 14, 18, Acts 4:10, 12). God is the sole source of absolute truth and His truth never changes, is never relative, arbitrary or fluid. Contrary to Gods’ absolute truth, mans’ truth is arbitrary, relative and fluid (Jer.17:9-10, Rom.3:4). We have the free will to choose to believe Gods’ absolute truth or reject it (John 8:43-45). Gods’ absolute truth is and has been being attacked in our Nation by all those wanting to usher in the New World Order, knowing the only way to do that is by destroying the Nation from the inside via the education and political systems removing Gods’ truth by replacing it with lies from Satan (Rom.1:18, 28, 32, 19-20, Rom.2:14-15, 20, 25, 1Tim.4:1-2, Rom.1:21, 25, 2Tim.3:7). This all being done in order to strip us of our freedoms and liberty’s enslaving us to the NWO (John 8:31-32, 36).

This week we learn that the word “truth” in John 18:37 is translated from the Greek word “alētheia” which Spiros Zodhiates defines as reality, absolute certainty and fact. Pure unadulterated reality that’s source is God.

Gods’ Word establishes a hierarchy with God above all else which allows for a set of parameters for us to live by (2Pet.1:20-21, 2Tim.3:16-17). What we are seeing in this country now is nothing less than deception and half truth’s (2Tim.3:13).

I’m not going to go into details here, but Bro. Leo describes the deception we all seen this week following the SCOTUS ruling on Roe v. Wade (John 8:42-44).

There is only one truth, by definition it is impossible to have a “my truth” and “your truth” (1John 1:6-8), truth is not whatever you want to make it be.

(Bro. Leo did not include this in the study) I like to compare definitions of words between the Webster’s Dictionary 1828 and the latest Webster’s version, this is the 1828 definition of “truth”:
TRUTHnoun

1. Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.

My mouth shall speak truth Proverbs 8:7.

Sanctify them through thy truth; thy word is truth John 17:17.

2. True state of facts or things. The duty of a court of justice is to discover the truth Witnesses are sworn to declare the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth

3. Conformity of words to thoughts, which is called moral truth

Shall truth fail to keep her word?

4. Veracity; purity from falsehood; practice of speaking truth; habitual disposition to speak truth; as when we say, a man is a man of truth

5. Correct opinion.

6. Fidelity; constancy.

The thoughts of past pleasure and truth

7. Honesty; virtue.

It must appear

That malice bears down truth

8. Exactness; conformity to rule.

Plows, to go true, depend much on the truth of the iron work. [Not in use.]

9. Real fact of just principle; real state of things. There are innumerable truths with which we are not acquainted.

10. Sincerity.

God is a spirit, and they that worship him must worship in spirit and in truth John 4:23.

11. The truth of God, is his veracity and faithfulness. Psalms 71:22.

Or his revealed will.

I have walked in thy truth Psalms 26:3.

12. Jesus Christ is called the truth John 14.

13. It is sometimes used by way of concession.

She said, truth Lord; yet the dogs eat of the crums– Matthew 15:27.

That is, it is a truth; what you have said, I admit to be true.

In truth in reality; in fact.

Of a truth in reality; certainly.

To do truth is to practice what God commands. John 3.

Here’s the current version:
Definition of truth

1a(1)the body of real things, events, and facts ACTUALITY

(2)the state of being the case FACT

(3)often capitalized a transcendent fundamental or spiritual reality

ba judgment, proposition, or idea that is true or accepted as truetruths of thermodynamics

cthe body of true statements and propositions

2athe property (as of a statement) of being in accord with fact or reality

bchiefly British TRUE sense 2

cfidelity to an original or to a standard

3asincerity in action, character, and utterance

barchaic FIDELITYCONSTANCY

4capitalizedChristian Science GOD

in truth

in accordance with fact ACTUALLY

As you can see even Webster has removed God for the most part, moving the definition closer to arbitrary than absolute.

6-19-2022 “WHAT IS TRUTH?” John 18:38

This week Bro. Leo starts us on a new study series concerning the current condition of our Nation and the direction we are headed in, starting with the Biblical definition of “truth” and why it’s considered antagonistic in both our political theatre and education systems.

The Bible is very specific that the truth of God and Gods’ truth is the only absolute truth (Gen.1:1-5, 26-27, 31, Gen.2:1, Exo.19:16-20, Exo.20:1-3, 12-17, Duet.6:4-5, Isa.45:5-8, Isa.42:8, John 1:1-3, 14, 18, Acts 4:10, 12). God is the sole source of absolute truth and His truth never changes, is never relative, arbitrary or fluid.

Contrary to Gods’ absolute truth, mans’ truth is arbitrary, relative and fluid (Jer.17:9-10, Rom.3:4). We have the free will to choose to believe Gods’ absolute truth or reject it (John 8:43-45).

Gods’ absolute truth is and has been being attacked in our Nation by all those wanting to usher in the New World Order, knowing the only way to do that is by destroying the Nation from the inside via the education and political systems removing Gods’ truth by replacing it with lies from Satan (Rom.1:18, 28, 32, 19-20, Rom.2:14-15, 20, 25, 1Tim.4:1-2, Rom.1:21, 25, 2Tim.3:7). This all being done in order to strip us of our freedoms and liberty’s enslaving us to the NWO (John 8:31-32, 36).

Psa 139:18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

Psa 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
Psa 139:24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Psa 14:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

Gen 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
Gen 6:12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Isa 59:3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

Isa 59:12 For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them;
Isa 59:13 In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
Isa 59:14 And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.
Isa 59:15 Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

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

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

5-22-2022 “THE SIMPLICITY OF CHRIST!” part3, 2 Corinthians 11:3

This week Bro. Leo continues us in a study of the simplicity of Christ with a look at what God’s word says is the easiest way for Satan to subtly draw us away from the simplicity of Christ.

Last week we learned in 2 Cor. 11 Paul is pointing out the errors happening in the Church of Corinth, mainly they were turning into a Faith+ Church just like so many are in our world today. If we adhere to the greatest commandment, our top priority will always be on our personal relationship with Jesus (Matt.22:37, Rev.2:2-5, Matt.7:22, Eph. 5:22-28, 32, Exo.20:2-5). Jesus presents Himself as Solitary and Unique (John 14:6). On Pentecost Jesus was still focused wholly on (Acts 4:10-12). Everything we do needs to be centered on Jesus (1Cor.3:11-13, John 3:30, John 12:32, Matt.11:28). With our personal relationship with Jesus as our priority, everything we do or experience will be centered on Jesus (Col.1:17-18, Eph.3:21, Psa.50:14-15).

The easiest way for Satan to move us away from Christ is to move our focus from Christ to ourselves. His Holy Spirit will not help us as long as our focus is on ourselves and not on Him (Matt.11:28-30, John 3:30-31, Rom.13:14, Psa.1:2-4).

Bro. Leo does an excellent job laying this study out in this audio file, please take time to listen.

2Co 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

This week Bro. Leo continues us in a study of the simplicity of Christ.

Last week we learned in 2 Cor. 11 Paul is pointing out the errors happening in the Church of Corinth, mainly they were turning into a Faith+ Church just like so many are in our world today. If we adhere to the greatest commandment, our top priority will always be on our personal relationship with Jesus (Matt.22:37, Rev.2:2-5, Matt.7:22, Eph. 5:22-28, 32, Exo.20:2-5).

With our personal relationship with Jesus as our priority, everything we do or experience will be centered on Jesus (Col.1:17-18, Eph.3:21, Psa.50:14-15).

There are many things that can draw us away from the simplicity of Christ, such as relationships with family members, co-workers, friends and faith + religion (2Cor.11:3-4, 1Cor.3:11). But, if we put our personal relationship with Jesus as our priority He will guide us (Matt.11:28, John 6:63-64, 66-68).

The simplicity of Christ: Psa 62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.

5-1-2022 “ADOPTION!” Romans 8:15-17

This week Bro. Leo is out of town, so David Sisk fills in for him and does a great job explaining the Biblical definition of believers adopted as children of God as well as sharing his own experience as an adopted child himself.

David brings to light five points of benefits that all born again believers receive the day they are saved, 1) justification (Rom.5:1). 2) reconciliation (Rom.5:10). 3) redemption (Eph.1:7, 2Cor.5:17-19). 4) propitiation for our sins (2Cor.5:20). 5) adoption (Gal.4:4-9, Rom.8:15-17).

Notice in 1Pet.1:3-5 and Eph.2:8-9 our adoption is permanent and can not be lost because it is a gift from God, not something that we worked for or are working for.

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

1Jn 4:10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

2Co 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2Co 5:18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
2Co 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
2Co 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Gal 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Gal 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Gal 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Gal 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
Gal 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

Rom 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Rom 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Rom 8:17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

Eph 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
Gal 4:5 To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
Gal 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Gal 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Gal 4:8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods.
Gal 4:9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

Eph 1:11 In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:

Mat 7:9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

1Pe 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1Pe 1:4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you,
1Pe 1:5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:

4-24-2022 “BECAUSE HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD!” part2 Romans 8:11

This week Bro. Leo continues us in a study of God’s saving and sustainable grace by answering the question “what does the Resurrection of Jesus Christ mean?”

Last week we studied these three Biblical significances of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
1) Jesus was proven to be the Son of God by the resurrection (Rom.1:1-4, Luke 22:66-71, Acts 17:30-31). The resurrection of Jesus separates Christianity from all other religions. Christianity is the only religion that worships the one true God who sacrificed Himself for us, all other religions worship a god who requires them to sacrifice for their god.

2) The resurrection reveals to us what Jesus accomplished on the Cross. The sacrifice of Jesus is proven sufficient and accepted by God to pay for “all” the sins of mankind (Heb.10:12, 10-11, 17-18, 1Cor.15: 20, 12, 14, 17).

3) The Resurrection of Jesus guarantees us that His Holy spirit and the Power of His Holy Spirit dwells in every believer and will not only raise us from the dead, but will also empower the believer in our daily lives (Rom.8:11, Eph.1:19).

This week we study how our daily lives should be changed from the day of our salvation forward. With the understanding that we are indwelt with His Holy Spirit, we should live day to day knowing that the power to not only overcome our greatest enemy, death, but also anything lesser that we are confronted with (Eph.1:18-21, Eph.3:20). This means that we have the power within us to resist the strongholds of sin (Rom.6:4-6, 10, 13).

Being indwelt with His Holy Spirit allows our minds to be set upon God and His purpose for us (Col.3:1-4). The indwelling of His Holy Spirit separates the born again believer from the religious folks (2Tim.3:1-2, 5).

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Rom 8:11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.

Eph 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
Eph 1:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
Eph 1:19 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,
Eph 1:20 Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places,
Eph 1:21 Far 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:

Eph 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Rom 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Rom 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Rom 6:10 For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
Rom 6:13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

Col 3:1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
Col 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
Col 3:3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
Col 3:4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

2Ti 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2Ti 3:2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
2Ti 3:5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
1Co 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1Co 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
