The Lie Changes Everything

by John and Ruth Greene

the-white-lieWhite lies have become the societal norm. Everybody does it and so should you. At least that is story that most levels of humanity tell. What do you think?

In much the same way, truth has become a hotly debated topic. Religion is being increasingly questioned because of the poor fruit that it has birthed. For years, talking heads of all kinds installed themselves as leaders, claiming to be arbiters of truth. Very often, popular truth is seen as tradition. In an age of what seems to be increasing iconoclasm, tradition has been challenged and often with good reason. This still has little to do with truth. The corruption of mankind casts a pall of gray on everything that men and women do. In this ‘darkened light,’ the idea of truth has been severely challenged through the corruption of doubt. Through recent generations, to most, the idea of truth is no longer absolute, but depends wholly on a given situation or ‘situational ethics.’ The majority have forgotten integrity, the righteousness of YHWH as the world spins out of control. (“Approved: Lie Cheat & Steal“; “Culture: Prompting Falsehood Through the Lie“; “The Antichrist & the War on Reality“; “Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“)

temptationIn much the same way, Satan used a lie to deceive and tempt. “You will be like Elohim (‘God’).” (Genesis 3:5) He took a goal of humanity and turned that goal into a trick pony, a horse of another color. The illusion has always that way, much to our own shame. In recent years, the meaning of a lie has been blurred into a ‘harmless illusion.’ As a created being, Satan was the crème of heavenly society, but he became fascinated by his own ‘beauty,’ a victim of his own envy. The fiery serpent of light was totally stuck on himself, on the witchcraft of his own shining lie. He and all of mankind have been corrupted through giving into temptation, then blaming that temptation on someone else through self-deception. (Genesis 3; “Millenniums of Human Exploitation“; “Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“) Humanity continues to settle for the same lies in exchange for any semblance of truth, but mostly humanity is looking for self-comfort. When you receive a known lie or create a lie you become a participant in the worst sort of craft, just like the father of the lie:

“And the serpent said to the woman, surely, you shall not die, for Elohim knows that in the day you eat of it, even your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil.” – Genesis 3:4-5, HRB

Satan pretended that he was doing Eve a favor, that this dalliance of the heart was pleasing and healthful, a shining truth. The deceptive knowledge seemed beneficial in the heat of the moment. Humanity has learned to lie to itself across the board since then, to replace even the sensation of truth with more ‘pleasant illusions.’ Just like the fruit of the garden, illusion is useful, but not for the righteousness of YHWH. The pleasant illusions of the corrupted heart always seek the participation of someone else to justify the illusion. Like toxic waste that spills in a river, unchecked sin spreads like wildfire. (“Knowledge of Good & Evil“; “Delusion & the Tightening Noose of the Beast System“; “Consenting to Fables of Men“)

snakebiteSin occurs based on a lie, every time. One lie always propagates another. Today, we scarcely know what truth is. We are easily deluded by what seems to be right, the sin nature of mankind. The law of the Jews was brought about to alert them, to bring them into right relationship through the knowledge of sin. This was necessary because corruption continues to feed more corruption. (Zephaniah 3:13; “Understanding Sin“; “Freedom: The Law of Sin and Death“)

“And we know that the Torah is good, if anyone uses it lawfully, knowing this, that the Torah is not laid down for a righteous one, but for lawless and rebellious ones, for unrighteous and sinful ones, for unholy and profane ones, for slayers of fathers and slayers of mothers, for murderers, for fornicators, for homosexuals, for kidnappers of free people, for liars, for perjurers, and if any other thing opposes sound doctrine, according to the good news of the glory of the blessed Elohim with which I was entrusted.” – 1 Timothy 1:8-11, HRB

“I did not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and because every lie is not of the truth. Who is the liar, except the one denying that Yahshua [Jesus] is the Messiah? This is a anti-Messiah, the one denying the Father and the Son. Everyone denying the Son does not have the Father. The one confessing the Son also has the Father.” – 1 John 2:21-22, HRB

fireTo lie, to distort truth is not a small thing, nor is it ‘white,’ but a large murderous deal. To deny that the lies of mankind exist doesn’t work. That is more self-deception. (Genesis 4:6-10) Sin is crouching at your door. The lies and deceptions of the world are outside of the Kingdom of the Father. The renewed heart and mind of the new man in Messiah doesn’t participate actively in such things. (Colossians 3:9; Matthew 15:19; “The Real Power Behind Baptism“; “Deceptions of Ages: How People are Deceived“; “Christian: Deceptions of Generations“; “Spiritual Warfare: “Genetics” That Rule Your Life“)

“But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” – Revelation 21:8, NKJV

“Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.” – Revelation 22:14-15, NKJV

“And this is the message which we have heard from Him and announce to you, that Elohim is light and in Him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and are not doing the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Yahshua [Jesus] Messiah His Son cleanses us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:5-7, ISR98

“Now by this we know that we know Him [Messiah], if we keep His commandments. He who says, ‘I know Him,’ and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.” – 1 John 2:3-4, NKJV

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
