Truth is the interrelated consistency of statements
and their correspondence with the facts of reality and the facts themselves. It suggests
an integration of character, and adherence of virtue, a kind of reliability, which
includes and goes beyond the literal meaning to include those aspects of personal behavior
which seem to be implied by the love of truth. The concept of truth is derived from the
character of God, and is the exact opposite of the concept of lying. "It is
impossible for God to lie."
He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgement: a God
of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
John 17:2 & 3
As thou has given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal
life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know
thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.
The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the Lord
are true and righteous altogether.
For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth.
For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall
know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Sanctify them through truth: thy word is truth.
John 18:37 & 38
Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou
sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world,
that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my
voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again
unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this
cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all
might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. But we
are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God
hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and
belief of the truth.
Whatever God says He will do, He will do. Therefore,
when He says those who believe in Jesus shall have eternal life, you can rest assured that
will take place. Just as sure is His providing a way out of temptation, protection from
the flaming arrows of the enemy, and Satan's eventual demise by being thrown into the Lake
of Fire forever.
