What if we never heard a lie?

Do you remember when you first heard a lie? I do, it was Santa Claus. I overheard my older brother talking about how fake Santa Claus was, and for the first time in my life, I realized I believed a lie. I realized my mom, dad, grandmother, the news man on TV, everyone lied to me. I never got into trouble again after that because I learned to lie. I did not know there was a God until I was 20 years old. Somewhere in my maturing teenaged years, I learned to tell the truth and you would not have to remember the “cool story” you told. So as it is written, my own sin corrected me. I learned to tell the truth because I did not like to be seen as a liar, although back then I lied regularly. I named my truck ALIBIS. However, until I believed a lie, I would have walked on water if Dad had said it was possible, after that I never believed an anything else, because none was trustworthy.


Jesus of Nazareth said, Satan is a Liar and the Father of it. Meaning Satan was the first liar that lied. Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the Truth, the Life and the Way, No one can come to the Father except through Him. Jesus said if you hunger and thirst after being right with God, then He will fill your ways. If you hungry ask Jesus how to feed your family, and He will show you how, but you have to want to follow and love the truth. Jesus said whoever believes in Him will not hunger or thirst. Jesus is the way you need; Jesus is the satisfaction and peace you cannot find. For I believe like Augustine, the heart is restless until our hearts rest in Jesus.


How do you beat the devil?


You got not want what he offers you. All he is selling is a lie, that his ways are better and easier. It is written, resist the devil and he will flee. You got make Jesus your only source, and not want the devil’s offer. This is how you resist the devil, just be like, Jesus I only want to sit and eat at your table and none other. Many have fallen reaching for forbidden fruit and have created themselves many jams. Have you heard the story of how to catch a monkey? The hunter takes a hollowed-out tree and drill holes barely big enough for the monkey to slide his hand in. The hunter fills the hollow tree with fruit, then the monkey squeezes his hand through grabs the fruit and is caught because the fruit and his hand like a fist holding are too big to slide back out of the tree. The monkey can only free himself if he lets go of the fruit inside the tree, but he will not. Then the hunter comes up and takes him captive. This is how the devil works, he offers forbidden fruit telling you the lie it is better than Jesus provides, then when you grab it, you are lost cut off from God and the only way back is to let go of the lie you bought and surrender it to Jesus for cleansing. It is written if we confess our sins he just and will forgive our sins and cleanse us from the unrighteousness associated with it. Will you forsake evil or wrong ways and turn to Jesus asking Him for the Truth you need to live your life by? Or are you bound by the decision to eat forbidden fruit?


Jesus died and the cross and was raise from the dead so you would not have to choose to do a wrong thing, and Jesus made a way for all the wrong things we done to be forgiven. All you have to do is love and follow the truth. Jesus said, I am the way, the life and the truth no man comes to the Father except through me. Will you ask Jesus to show you how to live your life right with God and others? Jesus said except we become converted like little children we cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven. We are like children in diapers before a Holy God, and we must come to Daddy Jesus and say dad can I, dad may I, dad will you, dad is that true, dad look what they did to me, etc. Dad teach me how to clothe and feed myself and my family… Jesus said if you seek first the kingdom of heaven all of these things shall be added unto you.


Jesus does not promise a mansion in malibu but does promise to our enough. Jesus said, Mat 11:28-30 Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (29) Take My yoke on you and learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest to your souls. (30) For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light. Do you want a light and easy yoke, Jesus said if you take His yoke and learn about Him you will find rest for your souls? You want a light and easy yoke? Yes or no?


If we never heard a lie, then we would only know good and never would have choose between a lie and the truth. Satan is a liar that destroys, Jesus is the truth that heals. Heaven will be a place where no lie exists. It will be a place of only good because no liar will enter into the kingdom of Heaven. Listen:

Rev 21:8 But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, will have their part in the Lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. God will punish these and they will not be in Heaven. Is that not good news, Jesus made a way for you never to do evil or a wrong thing, and destroyed the devils works, by making a way to be forgiven of our bad things or sin.


Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart today, listen Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and will dine with him and he with Me.


Jesus said Mar 16:15-16 And He said to them, Go into all the world, proclaim the gospel to all the creation. (16) He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who does not believe will be condemned.


Have you been baptized into Christ’s death burial and resurrection? Yes or no?


Do you still believe in your baptism? Yes or no?


Do you want to go to Heaven? Yes or no?


Father, we renounce Satan and all of his lies we have bought or believed, we surrender all and ask you would cleanse and sanctify us, please cleanse us from all the lies of satan and his minister and help us discern good over evil, truth over lies in Jesus of Nazareth’s name amen.
