“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1Jn 1:9)
Jesus Christ is the Word of eternal life who became flesh. He is God so he was always with the Father in heaven. But for few years He took flesh upon Himself, came down to earth and was manifested among men. Jesus is ‘the way, the truth and the life” (Jn 14:6). Outside the Body of Christ man has no purpose, no life, no truth and no joy of fellowship with others. Outside Christ there is only darkness, deception, pain, bitterness, regrets, disappointment, depression and utter tragedy. If you are born again and you walk daily in the light of the truth, you shall have fellowship with God the Father, with God the Son and with the other brethren. You shall never be lonely, barren or useless. You shall make progress, become spiritually fruitful and full of supernatural joy.
The word darkness means a cloud, like a shade that hides the truth. Spiritually it means a wrong doctrine, an error of thinking or ignorance of God’s Word. Truth means removal of that veil so that God’s opinion may be seen. In other words, the cloud of lies that covered the truth has been removed. Truth cannot be known by human wisdom. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of truth and leads into the truth. No other spirit knows where truth resides in this universe. Truth discriminates men. Truth is the enemy of lies! Truth fights the liars! Trust can never lose an battle! Truth means freedom from bondage, deception and lies. Truth grows only in the light of God’s Word (Eph 5:9). The Blood of Jesus cleanses only in the light of God where truth manifests!
This is a great mystery: the devil has his agents in the church. They are liars and deceivers. You think that men are too afraid to deceive the children of God in the church… You may be surprised at the truth… How do men lie in the church? Have you seen religious liars? How can ‘a Christian’ practice lies in the church? How can I describe ‘religious liars’? These men hurt the truth in wickedness while still coming to church, pray and read the Bible. Liars in the church a quite common; basically, they manifest in three ways: They pretend to be Christian, but they hate, deny and oppress the Truth.
*LIARS HATE THE TRUTH
“If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth” (1Jn 1:6)
You claim to be a Christian; you say that you have fellowship with God; that God speaks to you daily; that you obey God’s Word. But in reality you are a religious fool, an unbeliever. You ‘walk in darkness’, you are blind and ignorant spiritually. Like a dog goes back to its vomit, so a man who makes mistake upon mistake is a fool and a liar. Selah!
*LIARS DENY THE TRUTH
“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1Jn 1:8)
You say that you are a Christian. You claim to be without sin. But you deny the presence of sin in your flesh. The Word of God which is truth does not live in you. You speak religious lies and deceive yourself and others. To you sin is nothing, or a ‘small thing’. To you sin is something of the past. You refuse to carry your cross daily for you see no need for it. You refuse to confess your sins for you insist they are not there.
True confession means to speak exactly like God, to have the same opinion as God. But you have a different idea and standard of righteousness. For God sin is a tragedy of cosmic proportion. Sin has separated man from God. Sin is rebellion and breaking of God’s law. Sin is the opposite of holiness. God hates sin for He is holy. Sin killed God’s Son on the Cross. But to you, foolish man, sin is a joke, sin is almost non-existent and too little to be acknowledged and confessed as a crime. So your confession is fake and a lie. God cannot receive it. The Holy Spirit cannot bring peace to your soul. Selah!
*LIARS OPPRESS THE TRUTH
“If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us” (1Jn 1:10)
You say that you are a Christian. But you claim that you do not commit acts of sin. You hide your sinful behavior from the eyes of men. You have perfected the shameful ‘art’ of hypocrisy. If God convicts you of sin, you resist the Truth, insult and grieve the Holy Spirit, making God a liar. You insist upon your own self-righteousness. This is one of the most serious sins. Ananias and Saphira died because of this sin. Selah!
What is then the answer? Go to the Cross and look long and well upon Christ Crucified. Allow God to search your heart! Open your heart to the convicting power of the Holy Spirit. Confess your sins from the bottom of your heart! To deceive yourself that you are right with God is a sin that leads to death. Be wise! Do not run away from the rebuke of God! Your conscience bears witness with God and you cannot suppress it forever! Why do you want to suffer so long? Right now I pray in my spirit that you listen to these words of warning! As a doctor I am used to warn men of coming danger. But I cannot force them to take their medication. Please, respect and love your soul and come to Jesus! Be saved! Be free!
I plead the Blood of Jesus upon your body, soul, spirit, tongue, ministry and church! The Blood of Jesus shall speak better things concerning you and bring you to the throne of mercy and grace! Amen!
