Word-Filled Wednesday ~#123~ Are You Calling God a Liar?

"Anyone who does not believe God has made Him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about His Son. And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life." ~1 John 5:10(b)-12 [emphasis, mine]

"God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should change His mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and then not fulfill?" ~Numbers 23:19
"I'm trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: 'I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God.' That is the one thing we must NOT say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would NOT be a great moral teacher. He would be either a lunatic ~ on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg ~ or else He would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this Man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit on Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us NOT come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has NOT left that open to us. He did NOT intend to." ~C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity [emphasis, mine]

I happen to believe that we are living in the last days before Christ comes back for His church . . . that is, Bible-believing Christians and completed Jews. If you read your Bible regularly ~ and BELIEVE what it says ~ you would swear you are reading today's headlines: armies lining up against His people, Israel, and threatening them as never before, our own government abandoning Israel (Dear Lord, PLEASE, help us!); crime, sexual sin, threats to the stability of traditional marriage and families, disrespect for life ~ from conception to old age. And maybe worse of all, the PC culture is infiltrating and corrupting many churches. We are losing our salt. (Matt. 5:13)

I don't know about you, but I hope to take as many people to heaven with me as possible ~ STARTING with my own family

When people try to talk Jesus down to the level of "a way" to heaven or "just a good man" or "maybe that works for YOU  . . . ," don't let that slide by. By doing so, YOU are running the risk of making a liar out of God ~ this is a form of denial. Many of us don't think about it that way, we just want to be polite and not make waves.

But you can be polite AND frank at the same time ~ lovingly confront them with the truth of the Scripture, of documented history . . . of your own testimony! (Rev. 12:11) Scripture ~ God's Word ~ NEVER (never, ever, EVER) "returns void" (Is. 55:11), which means it WILL accomplish what it was intended to do/prove; and YOUR testimony is a powerful tool in the hands of THE Holy God

Now, the mixed blessing of God is that He gave us the gift of free will ~ we are free to choose to accept Jesus as our Savior and Lord and spend eternity with Him in heaven OR we are free to choose to deny Him as God's One and Only Son and, at our last breath, spend never-ending eternity separated from Him in unbelievable torment in hell.

Times are getting more and more desperate, as the devil knows his time is growing short. Don't be someone who denies the saving grace of Jesus' death, burial and resurrection to someone who needs to know. Even if they poo-poo you, even if they get mad, even if they walk away . . . YOU need to be faithful . . . YOUR job is the tell them, you are not responsible with what they do with the information.

"Do not be afraid of what they say or terrified by them, though they are a rebellious house. You must speak My words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious" . . . "But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his evil ways, he will die for his sin; but you will have saved yourself." ~Ezekiel 2:6(b)-7; 3:19 [emphasis, mine]

God does not lie. Tell them.

  1. God does not lie and what He says is true. We are in the Last Days and the Savior will come again. I believe the world is ripening in sin and that the time for the Savior to come is not that far away.
    Blessings for a powerful post!
