The Truth Shall Set You Free!

 Every-one who lives is guilty of committing sins or of doing something wrong. We all have done many wrong things and  have done something to someone or done something to ourselves that we are not proud of. Then there are the many secrets we keep that hunts many of us for a lifetime. In some of peoples past lives, there may have had hurtful things done to them as children and many have painful memories from those experiences. Sometimes we tend to keep those hurtful thoughts to ourselves and never truly express what we feel or felt. Those are the thoughts or feelings that has kept, both family's and marriages apart. Most keep  feelings and thoughts to themselves, because they are afraid of hurting other peoples feelings. Or out of  respect for their parents, they are afraid of telling the truth because it may hurt or offend them. Maybe its because some feel ,even if they tell the truth nothing good will come out of it. As the years pass many by, people tend to keep those feelings or secrets to themselves.By doing so a lot of people end up holding on to the hurt or pain for a lifetime. By doing this most end up resenting their brothers, sisters, mothers or fathers. Also holding on to past sins and wrongs people, end up with broken friendships and broken marriages that end up with divorce.

What most people don't realize is that the truth is good for the soul. It releases a burden, that many carry with themselves for years or a lifetime. Telling the truth can free anyone and can lifts curses, that if not broken, it will pass through any family for generations to come. If people never learn to tell the truth or open up about their real feelings then nothing will ever be solved. Also it may cause one not to speak or even visit their parents or relatives for years.Those words or feelings that you are afraid of expressing can cause you to be a loner and can separate you from both your family or spouse forever. My advice to anyone who happens to be blessed enough to read this is, if you are doing this or if this is a part of you life, you must end this practice now!Why?  Because our Father in Heaven is not pleased. He will not continue to bless you if you are holding back yourself, from your family or spouse.To be a part of Gods family or kingdom, one must first be able to have a stable home or family life. If one does not have control of their own life,then how can they be a part of Gods family?Before you confess your sins or feelings to anyone else, you first have to admit to yourself, that you do have a problem. After that get on your knees and confess to the one that knows all and sees all (Our Father in Heaven). Tell him what you are really feeling and also tell him why you were or why you are doing what you are doing today. Ask him for forgiveness and for a way to free yourself from this awful curse.Because God does not want you to separate yourself from your children, family or friend's. His Angels will sing and rejoice when you stay with your family and stay devoted to your spouse. Do not let the devil win! Rebuke him with all your might and confess ,then tell the truth. Don't allow lies or deceit, separate you from your family, because in the end it can ruin your life. Like an old Catholic Priest would say," Confession is good for the soul or a old south saying", The Truth Shall Set You Free!"
Have a blessed day,

1 Corinthians 13:6
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Galatians 6:10
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
2 John 1:4
It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us.



    Why is there such a large truth deficiency among those who search the Scripture for God's message to mankind? Why the disparity between what the Bible says and what men teach?

    1. The Bible says: Acts 4:10-12 ....that by the name of Jesus Christ.....12 "Nor is there salvation in any other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved."(NKJV)

    Men say: "Jesus is one way, however, there are many names and various religions by which men can be saved."

    Why do men have a truth deficit?
    Matthew 15:9 And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men."(NKJV)

    2. The Bible says: Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men,(NKJV)

    Men say: "The grace of God has only appeared to a select few who have been preselected by God for salvation and that all others will burn in hell."

    Why do men have a truth deficit?
    Mark 7:13 "making the word of God of no effect through your traditions which you have handed down, And many such things you do."(NKJV)

    3. The Bible says: Act 2:38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NKJV)

    Men say: "Water baptism is not essential to the forgiveness of sins."

    Why do men have a truth deficit?
    Mark 7:9 And He said to them, "All to well you reject the commandments of God, that you may keep your tradition.(NKJV)

    4. The Bible says: Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.(NKJV)

    Men say: "He who believes is saved the minute he believes and then is baptized because he is already saved."

    Why do men have a truth deficit?
    Matthew 15:3 But He answered and said to them, "Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition?(NKJV)

    5. The Bible says: 1 Peter 3:20-21...were saved through water. 21 There is also an antitype which now saves us, namely baptism... Acts 8:27-38 ......38...And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.(NKJV)

    Men say: "Water baptism is not essential for salvation. There is only spiritual baptism under the New Covenant, water baptism will not be administered here."

    Why do men have a truth deficit?
    2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. (NKJV)

    Why do men have a truth deficit?
    2 Timothy 4:3-4 For there is going to come a time when people won't listen to the truth, but will go around looking for teachers who will tell them just what they want to hear. 4 They won't listen to what the Bible says but will blithely follow their own misguided ideas. (The Living Bible--Paraphrased)

    The truth is found in the Bible.
    Men's opinions are found in man-made creed books and other extra-Biblical writings.
