Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” – John 8:31-38.
You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? – John 8:44-46.
Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” – John 14:5-6.
Some UFO investigators are seeking the truth about a 1965 fireball incident at Kecksburg, Pennsylvania. There is no dispute about the fact that a fireball streaked across the sky on December 9, 1965. There is no dispute because there are photos available of the fireball. However, what is in dispute is whether the fireball landed in the forest near Kecksburg. Some claim that local men were held at gunpoint by men in military clothing while they cordoned the area off. They also claim that the men carried off something metallic about the size of a VW beetle. A group called the Coalition for Freedom of Information has brought a lawsuit against NASA seeking any reports concerning military intervention at Kecksburg. If necessary to find the truth the group plans to bring lawsuits against the Army, Air Force, and the Department of Defense. They just want to know the truth and they are determined to find it whatever it costs.
We human beings are inquisitive creatures but oddly when it comes to spiritual things some just choose to say no to finding out the truth. They stop up their ears and cover their eyes to avoid knowing any more about God. If Billy Graham happens to have a televised crusade on TV, they quickly switch the channel. If someone knocks on their door and asks if they can share their faith they will forcefully say they are not interested. They blindly walk toward the end of their lives unable to see the eternal danger that lurks ahead. Not knowing the truth they think is bliss – they think if they do not know the truth then the truth will not affect them. Sadly they will have a most difficult wake up call in eternity when the truth is forced upon them much to late for anything to be done to change their eternal destination.
The fact is that if someone truly wants to know the truth about spiritual things they will find that truth to be widely available. They will not have to bring suit against the local church to demand truth be revealed to them. Here is the primary spiritual truth that everyone needs to know – Here it is: There is only one way to Heaven. God in His wisdom has provided only one way to an eternity in that wonderful place in Heaven and there are no exceptions. What is that one way? JESUS! And He my friends is the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth so help me God. Pull the blinders off of someone before it is eternally too late and share the Truth with them.
