#63 Seven Things About Truth and Peace
I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number sixty-three of this series, Seven Things About Truth and Peace.
Truth is the one thing every person wants to have, and peace is the one thing that every person wants to know. Peace is also the one thing that Satan stands against. Satan also stands against truth, because it is in truth that you find peace. The Bible describes Satan as the father of lies and goes on to say that there is no truth found in him. It is now easy to understand how the Bible describes this world as being in chaos, because it is Satan that creates the chaos, using deception, to steal your peace. There are many that claim to have and know the truth, but most people are unaware that the whole world lies in deception. To have the truth and the subsequent peace, you must go to the source of truth, God. The Bible is called the “word of truth”.
Seven Things About Truth and Peace:
- It is a foundational biblical principal that without biblical truth there is no peace.
- Joyful obedience is a biblical requirement to have and know truth and peace.
- Truth came through Jesus Christ.
- The truth that came through Jesus Christ guides Christians into the way of peace.
- The Gospel is truth.
- Grace, mercy, and peace are only found in truth and love.
- Peace with God and our fellow man is only found if it is pursued in obedience to God.
Knowing there is no truth or peace of this world, God is asking mankind to choose peace with Him. God wants peace for you therefore, God gives you the truth.
