LOOKING A CONGREGATION WITH THE TRUTH

LOOKING A CONGREGATION WITH THE TRUTH

(Mat 22:16) "And they sent their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, and I do not care about anyone, because no regard the person of men. "
(Luke 8:11) "This is the parable: The seed is the word of God."
(Matthew 13:31,32) "31Otra parable told them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and sowed in his field: Which indeed 32The is the smallest of all seeds: but when it is grown it is greater than the herbs and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and make nests in its branches. "
(Mat 4:17) "From that time Jesus began to preach, 'Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand".
(Eph. 1:13,14) "13In whom ye also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
(Heb 6:9) "But as for you, beloved, we are persuaded better things, and that accompany salvation, though we thus speak."(Jud 1:3) "Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, I had to write and urge you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints."
Is this a good time to ask why because we reached the foot of the Lord those who have come to the Lord's feet as adults. Surely each of you the answers, to which one must add my own staff, we can build a statistical projection that surely will open in a large range of situations. Mostly, and I am not mistaken, will have been from one or more personal needs. Dramas, anxieties and depressions would have taken a day (I have preached the gospel or not), to lay their eyes on Christ. Today, surely, and although some of their struggles can still be batallándose in his soul, which is like saying your mind will not be sorry / a for anything of that decision.
However, the percentage that follows that I want to address here. To those who came seeking the gospel truth. At this age, however, must sumársele many of the previous strip. For as long as man can remember, begins to recede to an intricate and complicated road in search of a transcendent truth that is far beyond what is taught in a house or in a school, and sometimes also the taught in a church called, usually congregation and, mostly, temple.And not knowing where you are, to many has led to the dark areas of occultism, spiritualism, alternative sciences, eastern philosophies and all the wide range of offers which we can not exclude the alleged Christian religions filled religious talk, but lacking real power, visible and effective from God.
Because if I ask an atheist what truth is, I will overwhelm with solid answers, pithy, analytical, highly logical and even coherent. But it will be a problem, although I confess, I know very well that eat away inside. For better and smarter answers I give, he will know intimately well, that these concepts so well handled on the truth, absolutely no use at all. They are very useful to quickly get rid of those who come to speak of any kind of god, or the one true God in private but no use at all to change your life, neither he nor any of those who share with him, nor to provide inner peace, or to give security in their lives, or to provide happiness or anything else you can delete your anxieties, fears and depression. But do not celebrate too: many Christians who theoretically are opposites of these atheists, the same thing happens. Ever wondered why? Because they have adopted a religion, (in each case "the best" or "the one with the truth"), but have never come to know the truth, because the truth bears fruit and changes.
(John 8:31-32) "Then Jesus said to the Jews, (which as you know, being the chosen people, are a symbol, a typology of what is now the church), who had believed in him, if ye continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. "
Is clear: Jesus tells all believers, who do know the truth, they will have true freedom, so it's a good time to ask ourselves if we are truly free. Because from this text that is obvious, making it free to you is not the truth itself, being the truth, but knowledge of the truth that makes us change our character and many attitudes. There are many people who live where the truth, which receives much legitimate information about the truth and is in constant contact with the truth, but has never come to know or to incorporate it into your life, therefore, are not free.
Still tied to walk a number of things and smelling world and even getting into the world and its ways to the churches, all in the religious structures and ecclesiastical systems that claim to have the truth, you understand the subtlety? The issue does not happen because your congregation, your denomination is, practice and preach the truth, the issue is that you know the make, the place for work, have communion with it and experiment, really, that freedom in Christ Jesus, which is the highest of all freedoms, which makes you a child of God willing to fulfill his will against all that opposes it, although part of that whole, are the modern Pharisees, perhaps members of their same congregation or many worldly brothers swept up in the ways of the world and say that nothing happens and this makes them stink world.However, in the depths, it may happen that you still do not know for sure what is truth.(Zechariah 8:3) "Thus saith the Lord: I will return to Zion (The holy nation) and I will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And Jerusalem shall be called the City of Truth, and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. " (As we can see clearly that God has taken up residence in Israel lately, it is clear that he is referring to the heavenly Jerusalem, which is the church, His church, not necessarily all of ours).
From here we are extracting two lessons: in the literal, Jerusalem was to shelter the truth, would be the city where truth is manifest, and the spiritual, the church is the heir and bearer of truth. What church? Now we will see. My God ... Will the Baptist? Will the Pentecostal? Will the Assemblies? Will the Nazarene? Will the Methodist? Is it ...? In Jeremiah 33:3, we find a very valuable clue.
(Jer.33: 3) "Call to Me and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not. (This means, in principle, still there for any of us, much as we know about theology, God will teach us great and mighty things you do not know. Moreover, if as we read in John is to know the truth that makes free, the Truth, then, has to be one of the great and mighty things that God will teach us if we call upon Him right, but ... How do I do? Look what follows):(Jer.33: 6) "Behold, I will bring health and healing, and I will heal them enjoy abundant peace and truth. (Do you have any doubt, still, yes God still heals today?)
Enough of implementing health campaigns invoking spirits healers! Enough of privileges include doctors and psychiatrists to help people find peace! Enough of opening each day theological seminaries and institutes with the idea of ​​discovering the truth! Health, medicine, healing of body and soul, the peace that passes all understanding and truth come because God revealed through His Spirit to all who seek it and cry for her. Look what it says Hosea.(Hosea 4:1) "Hear the word of the Lord, the children of Israel, for the Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the earth: for there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land."
The current religious may say: Let's see, when was writing the book of Hosea ...? And does it matter then! The word says Timothy whole word was inspired by God to teach, rebuking and training in righteousness. This is here and now! Anyway, it seems that no circling we decide to penetrate the truth, know it intimately and be free once and for all.(John 4:24) "God is spirit, and those who worship Him in Spirit and in truth it is necessary to worship him."Here's an interesting revelation. God is a Spirit, invisible to the human eye. And he says that he must worship in spirit but also in truth. What is worship in truth? We have interpreted that is without pretense, without hypocrisy, without gaps and formal rituals and is very well, it is. But there is more to that word. Something big, very big. The revelation, however, begins to expand when we read John 16:13.
(John 16:13) "But when He, the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth, He will not speak on his own, he will speak only what he hears, (Did he hears from whom?) And I will show you things to come.(This teaches you to be supernaturally guided to the truth. Never achieved by his intelligence or intellectual talents).
THIS IS A KEY POINT. He says the Spirit of Truth, we will declare the things that are to come. (Jn.14: 16,17) "16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Counselor to be with you forever, 17The Spirit of truth, whom the world can not receive, because it seeth him not, neither know, but you know Him because He abides with you and shall be in you. "
Pilate was judging when Jesus perceived, because it pains to be fair, it's true that he also wanted and craved, was not far away. With his poor understanding reduced his carnal nature, then mistook him for a human kingdom. That's why I asked Jesus if he was a king. If it was discovered that he had the right ingredient to find in a crime, judge and sentence. What did Jesus say?
(John 18: 37-38) "37Le said Pilate: Then, are you king? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice. 38 He told Pilate: What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and said unto them, I find no fault in him no crime. " Pilate knew it was there, but did not know, could not see. Do you know how many of you are out there walking Pilate inside the temples? What Jesus tells his disciples, textual, is telling you today, me and all who have made substantive decisions and now populate all Christian churches in the world.
(John 14:1-6) "1No your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you I am going there to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; How can we know the way? 6 Jesus answered, 'I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. "
Billions know that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life. However, seeing their lives, as if that is not reached, is not it? Are lost, confused, fall into delusion and lead a mediocre life and permanent defeat.
Do you know why? Because they believed, accepted, read and even taught and preached that Christ is the way, the truth and the life. They could not decide to walk down that road. Still insist feel independent and prefer to do everything as the dictates their own wills, desires, tastes, preferences or own human wisdom.If one day you accepted Christ as personal Savior, and decided to turn it into Lord of your life, and invited him to come into your heart, this was not a legal formality that enabled him to be a member of an evangelical church and to hold more or less important in the organization of the institution where denominational congregation. It is to begin to know and let it move freely in life without putting obstacles or impediments dictated by their carnal human nature. That's the way you walk your path. Includes oppose firmly, as he did, the whole religious structure of this time, (as he did in his time) and escape from slavery men who think they own the church of God. It's not an easy road. For neither was Jesus. But that is the way.
And where it takes you that way? To know intimately the person of Jesus Christ. And that is the knowledge that allows access to the Truth because He is the Truth. Beyond attitudes and ways, his gestures, his words, of all doctrine outside the doctrine of Jesus. He is Truth incarnate! And when his intimacy with Him is real, sincere and profound, it is very difficult to drop you in hollow ritualism, complicated philosophy or compelling speeches. It puts in motion the power of the Holy Spirit will always guide you into all truth, or not really fit in the manuals of theology invented by men, or their particular doctrines creators of all existing denominations, even today by today awarded him a small advantage to the enemy that has managed to realize a very effective biblical principle: divide. We know that every kingdom divided not prevail. (Mat 12:25) "Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand."
The transit through the intricate path, knowing intimately the Lord who dwells inside and agreeing to its truth, which alone is true of God, makes us land on the third phase: LIFE. What is Life? Eternal Life. Of course! However till the time of the final fulfillment of the plan of salvation, you have another life that can be accessed. This is here and now. Now you no longer live, but Christ lives in you. And it's a totally different life to which you were living today. Different from what any person can be living without Christ by most rich, famous and prestigious it is. It is the life of Christ in you. A life of true peace, not as the world giveth, is a life of fierce conviction, security for the future, confidence, joy, victory, without anxiety, fear or depression. It is a life of freedom in Christ Jesus! Compliance is real and practical: know the truth and the truth shall make you free.
However, I have a question conviction that he eats the soul at this time. Thinking: And, yes ... No doubt that what this man is saying, is just like that. I totally agree with this. The Bible says it and I want to believe it, but: How do I know Christ, who did not see it, if it's so hard to meet so many people who do see? The answer is also in the word. And in the mouth of Jesus.(John 17:14) "I have given them your word and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world as I am not of the world. 15 I pray that out of the world, but to protect them from evil. "
To know Christ, to commune with Him, learning to hear his voice and obey his word, is possible only getting out of the world system, going beyond the scope of the natural. Otherwise, we always exceed circumstances nor can we see the spiritual reality. If you lose your job you can never understand that, despite what you see on television every day, for you can be a job that does not exist for any of the thousands who seek Him daily. If you are sick with a chronic disease, for you there is no healthcare system in the world.
What has happened is that the church in its concern about excessive sympathetic to fall as an institution to the society in which it operates, instead of entering the system in the society of the kingdom of God, has allowed "gently" the system the world enters the church. Hence the working solution, will have good contacts for that physical healing will go through many doctors and health converted soul is exclusively reserved for the many Christian psychologists who congregate in our temples. There is a problem: it ends up giving glory to man and not God.And while it is willing to share with their children, God is jealous of His glory and protects. This is what we read in (Romans 1:25) "When he says Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. "
Want me to understand, at this point, that the search for truth is not due to a mere human interest and curiosity for something that intrigues him. The search for truth comes from the depths of our being, the site that is the image and likeness of God, the Holy Spirit. Search for the truth is the beginning; Finding it is the result. Perform it after you have believed is the corollary and God's purpose for every life. It is no use if, having found the truth, then decided not to incarnate.
(Romans 2:5-8) "5 But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are treasuring up for yourself wrath in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, 6 who will render to every man according their works. 7 eternal life to those who by persistence in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortality, 8 but wrath and anger to those who are contentious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness. "I supposed it's pretty clear, is not it? Are you looking for the truth even if it takes years of believer or a church member? Do not condemn or feel bad. There is a huge amount of people that the same thing is happening, is not alone. But something I have to say: if your search is genuine, your search will produce positive results. You are going to meet face to face with the truth that is Jesus. So the question is: What will you do after you have found it? Here is the main point of this delicate celestial ball of fine wool. Sensing that freedom differently, that is not going to lead to dependence on any man of flesh and blood and it goes to show God's purpose with absolute crystal clarity, What's going to use? In caring for this decision is the revelation of his future eternity, nothing less.
(2 Corinthians 4:1-2) "1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not. 2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience before God. " What would be the manifestation of the truth? Something that occurs as visible. Christ is the truth. Christ visible. How to make Christ visible? In ourselves, because we have Him in our hearts, is not it?
(2 Corinthians 6:1-7) "1 So we, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not in vain the grace of God. 2 For he says: In an acceptable time I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. Now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation. 3 Do not give anyone any offense in anything, that the ministry be not blamed: 4 Rather, we encourage all ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, 5 in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 6 in purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit and in sincere love, 7 truthful speech and in the power of God ... "DISCLOSURE IS HERE! The impact of the gospel can change the world is one that is based on the truth, which is Christ, and the manifestation of that truth, is the manifestation of the supernatural power of God, not beautiful words, beautiful vibrant cults or messages full of emotions .
Revelation is not the way we do wonder: Will I do this? There will jump a flooded Theologian verses that say: can Everything through Christ who strengthens you! And it's true, but you still can not God. Do you know why? Because you accepted him as Savior and Lord, by faith, was filled with the Holy Spirit, by faith, but believes that the truth is even when you walk out of the doctrine of Jesus. (2Jn 1:9) "Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God: he that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son."As you make your call as principal and not as server You look like protagonist of truth. That is the mistake. Because to you, what has God as an instrument. The manifestation of the truth which is to say the manifestation of Christ on earth through your body in Christ which is the Church.
