“What is Truth?”
“You are a king then?” Pilate asked. “You say that I’m a king,” Jesus replied. “I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice.” “What is truth?” Said Pilate. John 18:37-38
Jesus had been betrayed by Judas and arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane. He ended up before Pilate. Pilate questions Jesus, by asking if He was a king. And Jesus answers saying: “You say that I’m a king, I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the TRUTH. Everyone who is of the TRUTH listens to My voice.” Then Pilate replies with: “What is TRUTH?”
This is TRUTH: God is RIGHTEOUS, mankind is UNRIGHTEOUS
God is HOLY, mankind is UNHOLY
God is LOVE, mankind is UNLOVING
God is MERCIFUL, mankind is UNMERCIFUL
God is SINLESS, mankind is SINFUL
Mankind is in DESPERATE NEED of SALVATION. God put into place, before the beginning of time, the ONLY plan for the REDEMPTION of mankind. That is why Jesus said that He “was born for this,” meaning that His present situation was all part of God’s REDEMPTIVE PLAN for the SALVATION of mankind. Jesus Christ was God’s plan. He was born to die for the PLAN of SALVATION to be carried out.
He came to testify to the TRUTH. God is ALL that mankind isn’t. He is RIGHTEOUS, HOLY, LOVE, MERCY, and WITHOUT SIN. HE IS TRUTH! And Jesus was the manifestation of TRUTH. He came WILLINGLY to be the sacrificial lamb, to shed His blood for the REMISSION of the sins of ALL mankind, He who knew NO sin became sin, while hanging on an old rugged cross, in shame and dishonor for the SALVATION of UNRIGHTEOUS, UNHOLY, UNLOVING, UNMERCIFUL and SINFUL mankind. In order to give us the HOPE of HEAVEN for ALL eternity.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you CANNOT possess the HOPE OF HEAVEN, until you come to Christ for the SALVATION of your soul, and you can do that by: CONFESSING your sins to God, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and KNOW the TRUTH, because ONLY the TRUTH can set you FREE. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
