8-14-2022 “THE HIGH CALLING OF GOD!” Philippians 3:12-14

This week Bro. Leo continues us on a Biblical study of the reason for the decline in the American society with a look at how the Bible tells Christians we should be living.

I have a prayer request before I continue this weeks synopsis. Please pray for Bro. Leo and his wife Patty, Patty’s Dad passed away today. Please pray that Patty does not lose hope that her Dad could have accepted Jesus into his heart during those final moments of his life.

In Phil. 3:12-14, 20 we find the Christian’s purpose in life, the “high calling of God in Christ”. This purpose is two fold, 1) our daily walk in our present life (vs.12-14), 2) our eternal life (vs.20). In vs.12 the word “perfect” is translated from the Greek root word “telos” which means completeness, full maturity, to be full grown in faith and knowledge of the truth and character and virtue and understanding of the Scriptures. In vs.14 the word “high” is translated from the Greek word “anō” which means upward or above, heavenly or celestial, pertaining to things that above, heavenly and divine. In vs.14 the word “calling” is translated from the Greek word “klēsis” which means call towards or invite, go in a certain direction. Paul is telling us here that as Christians we have been called to live out a higher purpose of God in our present life through our personal life changing relationship with Jesus with an eye towards the future. Our perspective should always be a moving forward and a moving up. We should be seeking God’s purpose for our lives daily. We know that we are going to Heaven for eternity.

Our lives have eternal consequences that effect ourselves and those around us (Pro.15:24, Psa.121:1, Psa.40:1-3, Matt.18:1-3, 5-8). The calling of God is that we set examples for those around us (Phil.3:17, Matt.5:13-16). We should put greater value on our relationship with Jesus than on our worldly possessions and statures and like Paul, we should be seeking for God to increase His knowledge and purpose in our lives (Phil.3:7-11, Phil.2:12-13, Matt.6:19-21, ).

The first settlers/Pilgrims to come to America, came here to fulfil their “High calling to God”. Here are a couple of the quotes found in the Founders Bible: (https://shop.wallbuilders.com/product/the-founders-bible/)
The First Charter of Virginia; April 10, 1606

We, greatly commending, and graciously accepting of, their Desires for the Furtherance of so noble a Work, which may, by the Providence of Almighty God, hereafter tend to the Glory of his Divine Majesty, in propagating of Christian Religion to such People, as yet live in Darkness and miserable Ignorance of the true Knowledge and Worship of God, and may in time bring the Infidels and Savages, living in those parts, to human Civility, and to a settled and quiet Government: DO, by these our Letters Patents, graciously accept of, and agree to, their humble and well-intended Desires;

THE MAYFLOWER COMPACT November, 1620
IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great BritainFrance, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick, for our better Ordering and Preservation, and Furtherance of the Ends aforesaid: And by Virtue hereof do enact, constitute, and frame, such just and equal Laws, Ordinances, Acts, Constitutions, and Officers, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general Good of the Colony; unto which we promise all due Submission and Obedience. 

Bro. Leo continues with quotes of the 1629 Mass. Bay colony charter, 1643 New England colony affirmation, 1630 John Winthrop charter.

Just like those Pilgrims, everything we do should be done under the authority of God (Col.3:17).

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Php 3:12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.
Php 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
Php 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Php 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Pro 15:24 The way of life is above to the wise, that he may depart from hell beneath.

Psa 121:1 A Song of degrees. I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

Psa 40:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.
Psa 40:2 He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings.
Psa 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.

Php 3:15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
Php 3:16 Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.
Php 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

Php 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
Php 3:8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
Php 3:9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Php 3:10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
Php 3:11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Php 2:12 Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Php 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Mat 18:1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
Mat 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
Mat 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 18:5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Mat 18:7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
Mat 18:8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.

Mat 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Mat 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Mat 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

Mat 5:13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
Mat 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Mat 5:15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Mat 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
Col 3:18 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.
Col 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
Col 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

8-7-2022 “THE NATION THAT FORGETS GOD!” part3 Romans 1:21,28

This week Bro. Leo continues us on a Biblical study of the reason for the decline in the American society. Part 3 covers the rightful place of God in a nation and in individuals, as well as some of the Founding Fathers thoughts about God and education.

Satan’s strategy in America is to remove God from our nation by removing God from our education system and the results are found in Psa.50:22 and Psa.9:17.

Our Founding Father’s acknowledged God as the Supreme Ruler. Quotes from the Founding Fathers (found in the Founder’s Bible https://www.amazon.com/Founders-Bible-NASB-David-Barton/dp/1618710060/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1X2ZRJ0F82JRW&keywords=founders+bible+david+barton&qid=1659903682&sprefix=founders+bible%2Caps%2C1104&sr=8-1)

“Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor – and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.” George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation, 1789

“As the safety and prosperity of nations ultimately and essentially depend on the protection and blessing of Almighty God; and the national acknowledgment of this truth is not only an indispensable duty which the people owe to Him” John Adams Proclamation for a Day of Fasting & Humiliation, March 23, 1798

“acknowledging and adoring an overruling providence, which by all its dispensations proves that it delights in the happiness of man here, and his greater happiness hereafter; with all these blessings, what more is necessary to make us a happy and a prosperous people?” Thomas Jefferson First Inaugural Address, 4 March 1801

“Whereas, the Senate of the United States devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for national prayer and humiliation; and Whereas, it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history: that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord; And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisement in this world..” Abraham Lincoln, National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer, MARCH 30, 1863

The word “hallowed” in Matt.6:9 is translated from the Greek word “hagiazō” which means honor, reverence, respect. We are recognizing God’s rightful place. The Matt.6:10 prayer is asking 1)God to bring His Kingdom to earth and 2)asking for God’s will within our life, submitting to the authority of God in our daily walk.. Matt.6:11 is praying for God’s provisions to us. (Pro.3:5-9, 2, 4, 10)

In Pro.1:7 the word “knowledge” is translated from the Hebrew word root word “yâda‛” which means knowing or learning, giving of facts/truth’s, learning skills. The word “instruction” in vs.8 is translated from the Hebrew word root word “yâsar” which means to teach discipline, convey orally or in action, give instructions, receive knowledge. God is the source of all knowledge (Job 21:22).

Bro. Leo dedicates this part of the study to all the teachers in our Country and the Godly job they are performing in our schools. Then he quotes the first Harvard University mission statement, 1635 and a statement in 1790 and their two motto’s “for the glory of Christ” and “for Christ in the Church”.

Massachusetts passed the Old Deluder Satan Act in 1647, laying the basis for public schools in America.  The Puritans valued literacy highly; they believed all individuals should be able to read and interpret the Bible for themselves. The religious basis of the act was explicit: the act stated its intention was to thwart “ye old deluder, Satan” in his goal “to keepe men from the knowledge of ye Scriptures.” To this end, the law required every town with 50 or more families to hire and maintain a teacher to instruct all children in reading and writing. Towns of 100 or more families were required to support a grammar school to prepare students to attend Harvard College.

Pro 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

7-31-2022 “THE NATION THAT FORGETS GOD!” part2 Romans 1:21

This week Bro. Leo continues us on a Biblical study of the reason for the decline in the American society. This week Bro. Leo teaches what the Bible describes the attributes of the Anti-Christ spirit leading up to the One World Government/Religion.

Last week we learned in Rom.1:21 the word “glorified” is translated from the Greek word “doxazō” which means to exalt in dignity as one acknowledges excellency and splendor. In 1Tim.6:16 the word “Potentate” is translated from the Greek word “dunastēs” which means supreme ruler or authority. In America most of our leaders, media and higher education educators refuse to acknowledge, glorify and thank God. No God = no high calling of God (Phil.3:14) = no hierarchy = no nation under God. Our Country is being led by people with a Marxist/Humanist mindset that want to destroy our Nation in order to usher in their One World Government. People with that mindset have taken over the Government education system and are successfully teaching their ideology to the younger generations. That ideology leaves the people with an emptiness and without hope because they do not know the love God has for them (John 10:10).

One of the attributes of the Anti-Christ spirit will be the desire to remove God from the thoughts of the people (Rom.1:28). One of the ways this has been accomplished is by removing God from the K-12 classrooms in America. The Anti-Christ has been telling the lie that it is unconstitutional for faculty and students to exercise their faith freely in the classrooms. With this lie they have effectively removed the knowledge of the high calling of God (Phil.3:13-14, 19-21) for the students. Without this knowledge the students can no longer know the love God has for them or the plan He has for their lives. This leaves the students with a sense of hopefulness and leads to all the mass shootings we have seen in the classrooms in America.

Another Anti-Christ attribute that we are experiencing in America is the desire to remove National borders. God determined the national boarders (Acts 17:24-28), but the Anti-Christ spirit has always desired to remove the boarders and unite all peoples in order to remove their attention from God and place it upon themselves (Gen.11:1-9).

This study Biblically describes the actions of the Anti-Christ spirit in the American progressive/woke movement that American Christians need to recognize and resist. Please take a few minutes to listen to this study, I assure you, you will begin to recognize the Anti-Christ spirit in a lot of the American current political stage.

Joh 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

7-17-2022 “RESTING IN THE PERFECT FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST!” Hebrews 10:11-14

This week David Sisk fills in for Bro. Leo and leads us on a Biblical study on the finished work of Christ and how His work effects our salvation.

In Col.1:15-17 we are told that Jesus created all of creation. In Gen.1:31-2:1-2 we read that creation was perfect, therefore nothing else was needed to be done so Jesus rested.

In Heb.10:11-14 we read that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross was a perfect sacrifice for our sins and no other sacrifice was needed, so Jesus rested on the right hand of God.

In Eph.2:8-9 we read that salvation is a gift from God and can not be earned by us, but is freely given to those who have faith in Jesus and His finished work on the cross.

In Phil.1″6 we read that God secures His gift of salvation in the believer. So, the question becomes “why do so many Christians attempt to earn their salvation or retain their salvation via good works instead of resting in the perfectly finished work of Christ?”.

Scriptures used in today’s study:

Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Gen 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Gen 2:1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
Gen 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.

Heb 10:11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
Heb 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
Heb 10:13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
Heb 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

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.

Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

7-10-2022 “GOD’S TRUTH OR MAN’S LIES!” Romans 1:25

This week Bro. Leo continues us in our study of TRUTH by looking at how the truth of God is being changed into a lie in our Country.

Last week we learned in Romans 1 Paul describes a society’s actions prior to God’s judgement falling upon that society. In vs.25 and 23 they changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served corruptible self instead of God. In vs.28 they removed God from their knowledge. In vs.32 they deny there will be a judgement of God by taking pride in their sins. If we are honest with ourselves we can see that our society, here in the USA, has been doing what Paul describes in Romans 1 for 100+ years.

Bro. Leo reads several Founding Fathers quotes from the Founders Bible (https://shop.wallbuilders.com/product/the-founders-bible-digital-edition/) which proves the Founders devotion to the Christian faith. As well as the founding Mission statement of Harvard University.

In Psa.2:1 the word “rage” is translated from the Hebrew word “râgash” which means to be in an uproar or commotion, to be a tumultuous assembly of people. This is how the people who are rejecting God’s truth and spewing lies are acting in our society today.

In Isa.30:15 the word “quietness” is translated by the Hebrew word “shâqaṭ” which means to be at rest, settled and undisturbed, a state of tranquility, to possess a sense of safety and security. This is how Christians are acting during these times.

This synopsis does not come close to covering all the points in this study, so please take some time and listen to this audio file for all the details.

Bro. Leo reads a couple Founding Fathers quotes from the Founders Bible by David Barton (https://shop.wallbuilders.com/product/the-founders-bible/).

“The Bible contains more knowledge necessary to man in his present state than any other book in the world. By renouncing the Bible, philosophers swing from their moorings upon all moral subjects..It is the only correct map of the human heart that ever has been published.” Benjamin Rush

“The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts.” John Jay

No book in the world deserves to be so unceasingly studied, and so profoundly meditated upon as the Bible.” John Quincy Adams

“All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible.” Noah Webster

In 1782 the Congress unanimously voted to print Bible’s in the English language for all Americans. The commonly spewed phrase “separation of Church and State” is a lie told by the folks trying to destroy this Country.

In the 1930’s German Marxists were forced out of Germany by the Nazi’s. These Marxists came to the USA with a mission of taking over the American school system. In order to do this they had to remove the natural order, God-Family-Country by taking God out and stressing Patriotism first. In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower pushed Congress to add the words “one nation under God” to the Pledge of Allegiance in an attempt to fight off the threat of Communism in our Country. This phrase stresses that the USA is under God’s authority (Psa.33, Matt.6:33, Prov.3:6).

In Rom.1:28 the word “reprobate” is translated from the Greek word “adokimos: which means useless or worthless. In vs.22 Paul tells us as they became “woke” they actually became fools. They are given over to their own lusts, desires and wants, which actually allows them to self destruct and destroy everything around them (Phil.3:18-19).

The “woke” folks love to tell everyone to “love your neighbor as yourself”, but they neglect the fact that “love your neighbor as yourself” is the 2nd Commandment. The first and greatest Commandment is “thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength” (Mark 12:29-31). The “woke” folks remove the authority of God so that they can become the authority to themselves (Rom.1:19-20, 28, 2Thess.2_3-4).

Scriptures used in today’s study:

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 1:23 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 1:21 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 1:28 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 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:26 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:

Mar 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
Mar 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
Mar 12:30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

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 1:28 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;

Heb 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2Th 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2Th 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

Php 3:18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
Php 3:19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
Php 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

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).

This week Bro. Leo leads us in celebrating the life of my wife, Joyce Greuter, who went home to be with Jesus Friday June 3rd. I titled this recording “Shinning Light” because Joyce’s highest priority was sharing the love of Jesus Christ with all her family and friends in hopes that they too would accept His unconditional love and salvation. Please take a few minutes and listen to this celebration of life and feel the love that Joyce had for Jesus and all her family and friends and that Jesus has for you.
