The Holy Spirit and Lies!

Jesus said to his disciples:
If you love me, you will do as I command.  Then I will ask the Father to send you the Holy Spirit who will help you and always be with you.  The Spirit will show you what is true. The people of this world cannot accept the Spirit, because they don't see or know him. But you know the Spirit, who is with you and will keep on living in you.

I won't leave you like orphans. I will come back to you.  In a little while the people of this world won't be able to see me, but you will see me. And because I live, you will live.  Then you will know I am one with the Father. You will know you are one with me, and I am one with you.  If you love me, you will do what I have said, and my Father will love you. I will also love you and show you what I am like.

John 14:15-21

The Holy Spirit shows you what is true!  The Spirit of God is the ultimate “Lie Detector.”  Men can lie and may successfully deceive each other, but you cannot lie to God and away with it.  Adam and Eve tried hiding from God and Cain lied about his brother Abel.  Along with rebellion against God comes the amazingly foolish attempt to lie to God about it!  Satan is the author of the “Cover Up!”

If you have the Holy Spirit living in your heart, then He can reveal to you what is truth and what is a lie!  Ask Him to show you what is true about everything you confront today.  The level of deception and lies in the world today is very high.  Truth is a precious commodity that is hard to find.  But the Holy Spirit can show you what is true and what is not!  

The other thing the Lord will reveal to you is what Jesus is like!  If you have the Holy Spirit in your heart, you will not be deceived about who Jesus is.  You will see Him better every day and discover how God is changing you to be like Jesus!  As you become like the Savior, lies will be something that will fade into your distant past and truth will dominate your every thought and breath you take!

“Lord Jesus, the Bible says that You are the Truth!  Help me today to know nothing but the Truth!  Praise Your name forever.  Amen.”
