Absolute Truth to be or not to be?

>> Sunday, February 28, 2010

I'm not quite sure why some have a problem with absolute truth. I am going to just process my own thoughts in hopes of accomplishing.....well nothing, other than I need to!? How do we express we have no absolutes? So let me get this straight. There are no absolute truths in the beliefs of many, right? Are you absolutely sure of that? Ummm.... exactly, are you following me.

How about this, is this absolute truth or not? If I jump off a 20 story building I will fall to the ground? - Yes gravity is an absolute truth.

Or if I had to do a math problem is it absolute true that 5+5=10? huh really that is truth?

O.k. lets go one step further, shall we... If there is no truth or absolute truth what holds the "thinking and conscience state of mankind together?" There would be total chaos, no right or wrong. Lieing is morally correct? Hey committing adultery is o.k with you? Well lets face it if someone doesn't believe in absolute truth, we tend to be moved but what "we" think is o.k. Quite frankly the truth is, I don't agree with this logic or sense of perception.

So you deposit $500 in your bank account, you call the bank for a balance check they tell you your balance is $0. You're upset, because you know you deposited money, but since there is no absolute truth, the teller doesn't agree with your logic in depositing money and therefore has emptied your bank account because there are no absolute boundaries to stop her.

Where is the accountability? Why do we have laws, courthouses, judges, jails, and the American Flag?

If you are caught driving over the speed limit by 25 miles, is it not truth you are very likely to suffer consequences? If you are caught stealing a 45" T.V. from the department store are there consequences? How about this one! If you run your car into a tree traveling 150 miles will you eventually crash? If you hold your breath under water and you are chained to the bottom will you run out of air and drown in oh, lets just say on the long side, 15 minutes?

Wow, and I didn't even bring God into this. I really wonder about this post modern society and their tolerance for irrational thinking. What spirit do you suppose this came from? But since I brought it up now, for someone to say there is no God, they would have to be all knowing, right? Since we are limited in our thinking, we can't rightfully say something unless we have evidence and can prove it.

I will testify that I love absolute truth! I love that God has given us absolutes and the fact there is truth is comforting to me. I have a personal relationship with my Lord Jesus Christ. He is not only truth but the very essence of TRUTH.

I hope I proved my point out loud. I am sure you didn't need convincing and appreciate you processing this with me.

You can believe this.Take it to the bank, invest it and watch your divine return bless your little heart! Jesus Christ is Lord, He is the final authority! It is He that says "do not hate your brother less you commit murder in your heart. Do not lie against one another, Do not steal." Jesus came to live out the gospel for us to share. The death, burial, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ was and are the absolute truths for the complete gospel of our Lord.

As Bible believing, Lord saving, grace abounding Christians, how do we tolerate lies? The truth is what is absolutely necessary to uphold it. I leave us with that to ponder.......

Fear strikes all of us from time to time. There is good healthy fear and then bad unhealthy fear.

Good fear is something that keeps us in a reverence for things. We know if we touch a hot burner we will get a bad burn. We know if we misuse electricity we will get shocked. I have an electric fence which gives my horse boundaries, everytime I try to climb through it I fear being shocked! I fear if I am out of God's will by disobedience that consequences will follow. These are all good fears that keep us in check with what is going on around us and what we do will have an affect on ourselves and/or with someone else. Healthy fear sets boundaries it creates respect. Good Fear helps us to analize and receive truth. Good fear helps us from moving backwards. Yes think about that, when we disobey it is always a setback! I touch that hot burner, my damaged hand is a set back, if I cross boundaries that God has set the consequences set me back. Good fear motivates my obedience!

Conviction to do right is a still small voice nudging or knocking on our hearts to do right or to go back and make it right. It gently brings us to reconciliation, it hurts but is freeing to move forward in forgiveness and openness about our mistakes.

Bad fear unhealthy fear paralizes us. Bad fear TORMENTS US, it creates mountains out of mole hills. Bad fear causes us to see things, hear things and feel things that are not truth. Bad fear keeps us from moving forward. I can fear people, places, circumstances, confrontation. I can fear the unknown. I can fear false ideas that play out in my head. I can fear that I am not liked, or unaccepted in social circles. I can fear my husband doesnt really love me or my children hate me because I'm a horrible mother. I can fear..... and the list is endless. In the mind battle of fear we literally paralize ourselves from being productive we must face our fears. It brings up our past and accuses us of our faults. In Christ we are forgiven and our sins are thrown behind the back of God. We must face that this fear of the what ifs, the unknowns, the monsters in our closets are from Satan himself!!!!!! He desires to sift us like wheat to place us in bondage from being free to live the abundant life. If, holds us back. No matter what we have done, not matter what, when we have confessed and repented we are restored immediately. Do NOT let the accuser of the brethren keep you in the past that you are freed from, move forward in liberty because of Jesus!

How about the fear that you cant move forward because you are so comfortable with being miserable and controlled by fear that to be freed seems more illogical than you being in bondage! It is ok to forgive yourself and enjoy life! There is nothing, nothing that you are not forgiven from. You and you alone is the only one that can set yourself FREE! Dont feel guilty about that, just do it and enjoy the freedom of forgiveness. Forgive yourself!

1John 4:8 perfect love casts out fear because fear has torment, he that feareth is not made perfect in love.

Guilt is condemning it gnaws on you like a tiger on a bone. It is overwhelming it suffocates us, it paralizes us, it moves us into an isolate place of imprisonment that WE shut ourselves into! Guilt moves US to PLACE ourselves in bondage and a belief that we are so bad, undeserving, unforgiveable and inexcusable! Guilt is a LIE from the ENEMY who desires to destroy the JESUS in you!

F.E.A.R.= False evidence appearing real. False evidence appearing real.

The enemy is out to destroy us and he loves to create false lies and circumstances to distract us from living and enjoying God. What if all of our fears where real? Think about that. What if all and even our worse were real? It doesn't change who we are. What changes is the reality that its out of our control. We can only control what we think and say and for that matter do. We must take the fears of the enemy and eliminate them one by one. Take captive EVERY thought into the obedience of Christ.

Today what is consuming your thoughts, paralyzing your spirit and holding you back from living!

Today so many women are not living to die they are dieing to live!!!! Women want to be set free to live life in liberty!!!!

First step: What are the thoughts that consume you? Acknowledge it, Identify it!
Second step: Write it down, confess it verbally and tear it down as a lie
Third step: Memorize your promises, trust God and know who you are in Him!
Fourth step: Now enjoy LIFE in JESUS!

KJV Ps 64:9-67:7-Prov 2:5 Eph 5:21- 1 Tm 1:7 Luke 22:31 Rev 12:10 2Cor 10:5 Jer 7:24
Promises: Rom 8:37, 8:15-17, Col 1:13, Luke 10:19, Eph 1:3, Isaiah 42:1, Romans 8:31, Acts 17:28, Heb 11:6

A believer in Jesus Christ, one who has been reconciled to the Creator of the universe is an adopted heir to the Kingdom. We are daughters of a King! A King of the most HIGH kings! We are positioned by Him and highly favored. Be Blessed and live Believe God with all you have for all its worth!


"Trading Places" Free Women's Conference

Saturday, February 27th, 9am to 3pm
Victory Bible Church, 861 S. Egg Harbor Rd., Hammonton, NJ
Lunch Provided

Who’s in the driver’s seat of your life . . . you or God?
Do you trust God to get you to your destination or do you have to map out every turn?
Come discover what happens when you let God take the wheel!

From the Garden of Eden the power for control has been ever pressing human beings. Why do we feel the need to control everything? Come, find out why we must “Trade Places” with God, relinquishing control back to Him in order to live out GRACE. We will examine women in scripture who controlled their circumstances versus those who allowed God to control them. Startling evidence will show how the sovereignty of God wins every time! You will leave with something new to think about. Our prayer is that you leave with the revelation of God’s plan for your life. Invite family, friends, co-workers. Trading the illusion of control for God's Grace is a key that will set women free! You will be enlightened and empowered to live in Grace and embrace it!

Reserve your seat by calling Debbie @ 609-567-0512 or emailing debbie@wholeheartministry.org
Complimentary lunch served ~ donations taken to help offset costs
