What if President Trump and his White House pandemic “task force” told the truth about the fact that:
- The Covid-19 “virus” has never been isolated;
- The Covid-19 is a laboratory-created, patented biological warfare pathogen;
- The patented Covid-19 tests are totally unreliable to conclude anything;
- The patented Covid-19 “warp-speed” vaccine has been created without strict safety testing and is highly experimental;
- There is no scientific basis to support that masks or social distancing prevent viral transmission from one person to another; and
- All the lock downs and other restriction were completely unnecessary?
What would happen? One thing for sure is that this whole situation would be exposed and the fraud game would be over in less than 24 hours. The power of truth to set us free!
The Challenge of Truth
But I wonder, even if the truth was told about this Covid nonsense, would most people believe it? Could they change their already programmed reality? Would they throw away their masks? I don’t think so. The psychological warfare matrix of lies with all its signs and wonders of prognostications, pronouncements, charts and graphs of impending doom has locked down the minds of most people into accepting the “new normal.” What happened? They refused to believe the truth.
. . . they did not receive the love of the truth so as to be saved. For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false, in order that they all may be judged who did not believe the truth, but took pleasure in wickedness. – 2 Thessalonians 2:10-11
I think that all of us have a resistance, in some respect, to hearing and receiving truth. Truth has a way of confronting a reality we may not want to deal with. Truth can be uncomfortable.
Years ago, I ran into this quote from Harmony Grant (maiden name) that really nails the problem:
“There’s at least one good and simple reason that truth evades us… It’s almost impossible to find truth if your will is committed to the version you want … Our desires for reality to be a certain way – our fear of one answer, our need for another – blind us to reality. Subconsciously, we are driven to insist on the answer we want. We rarely recognize when we do this …
“The rejection and repression of truth may be so subtle, their motivations so subconscious, that we can’t even see that we’re doing it. We don’t know exactly why a certain concept or premise is so unacceptable, but it is. We reject possible truths for no good reason at all …
“If you really want the truth – about God, Christ, what’s tearing our nation apart – you have to do one thing. You have to give up your life. You have to be ready to accept the answer you don’t want to hear and for the worst fallout …” – from: “Why It’s So Hard To Face Reality” by Harmony Grant
The Difficulty of Truth
The truth is difficult to receive at times because it can be unpopular. It can be politically and culturally unacceptable and thus truth can result in social or religious disfellowship. It can be labeled as “domestic terrorism” and therefore, is dangerous. It may cost you your family, friends, your job or even your life.
So, one has to do some serious evaluation about whether the truth is important enough to search out, believe, confess and live by at the potential loss of everything.
He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal. – John 12:25
The other difficulty that I have found which people face in discovering truth is whether they are persuaded by their own experience or perceived experience. Interestingly, in Deuteronomy 13, Moses told the people of Israel that there would be false prophets who would arise from time to time and announce visions and even do signs and wonders. That might cause some to marvel and be in awe of those prophets. Would this experience persuade the people to follow them? But it would be a test from the Lord to see if they loved “the Lord . . . and fear Him . . . keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him and cling to Him” (Deuteronomy 13:4). For if that prophet should try to entice the people “. . . saying, ‘Let us go after other gods . . . and serve them’ ” (Deuteronomy 13:2), they would have to make a choice. Either believe the prophet based upon their perceived experience from him or return to what was written as God’s revelation. The choice is either be persuaded by experience – what you see and what you feel – or believe what God has already said.
The Objective Truth
Experience can be persuasive, but it is not necessarily a reliable test of truth. I came up with this motto years ago:
Experience testifies, but Scripture verifies.
There is no other way to determine with certainty who God is, what He has said, what He has done and intends to do as you read the Bible except to apply the test of truth. What is that? Truth is determined by the unity, consistency and the law of non-contradiction (which says you cannot affirm and deny the same thing at the same time and in the same respect).
There is no substitute for personal due diligence to gather objective evidence by which you can determine solid, dispassionate conclusions of fact. I know it may sound quite academic and sterile, but it is absolutely necessary in order to discover what is true, correct and certain.
Whether one is trying to find out the truth on a particular matter in biblical theology or the truth about current events of our day, we are obliged to seek it out as best we can. Without that, we have no compass for our lives and we get lost in a sea of uncharted waters. More than ever, we need the direction that we can receive from the truth of God’s Word.
I can only tell you what I have found. The truth of what the Bible says and means started becoming clear when I began to read it as a story. And within that historical account, I was able to piece together all the key people, key events and key covenants of the Bible into a unified, consistent and non-contradictory fashion. That doesn’t mean I can answer every question, but I have more of a foundation to work from as I continue to learn and grow in the pursuit of the truth.
That is why I wrote the Covenant Heritage Series and created the Bible Mastery Boot Camp, in order to provide to others a step-by-step, systematic teaching and training course. Best of all, I designed all these so others could easily discover for themselves, what the Bible says and means.
Truth can be found. But it can only be believed and lived if you own it for yourself.
Importance of Truth
Let me finish this post with this thought.
- Acknowledge a truth verified as true, correct and certain,
- Believe and confess it,
- Conforming your life to it, and
- Execute it into action
Is a violation of the 1st and 2nd Commandments in that there is another god and one is setting oneself up as an idol before God Himself as the arbiter of truth.
We face very uncertain days ahead. Let’s continue to get grounded in God’s truth and help others do the same.
