Truth Written, Truth Spoken, Truth Handed Down Through the Ages

By Hugh Lipsius

In all of man's history, truth (that which agrees with the final reality) has always held itself out to be embraced...and whether it waxs or wains...freedom, liberty, national interest, the pursuit of happiness, or any nations way of life must take a back seat to it. Without the written and spoken word of truth to light the way,to help us recognize the lie, lawlessness occurs, and all other principles and values are doomed to destruction. Truth is the forerunner of justice, and without it to confront the lawlessness of the lie, there is nothing to value.

Truth Has No Boundaries
by Hugh Lipsius

When Addressing anything...truth is what matters most...when truth was told thousands of years ago that has its bearing today...it must be embraced...not ignored...you might do all you can to prove this wrong before you will accept it as truth...but when you finally accept it...then truth will be all that matters...and politics nor any government administration can seperate itself from the truth...no matter how hard it tries...there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed in its time.

The lawless one cometh - read carefully

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day (the Day of our Lord) will not come unless the falling away ( of truth speaking, saving faith, the faith once delivered unto the saints) comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition...who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God (mercy, grace, patience, kindness, goodness and truth) or that is worshipped (life), so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (thinking to himself that he knows what is best for mankind and it is his destiny to fulfill that mandate)...( "if you eat of that tree you will surely die"[Sound like someone you know]?)...Do you not remember that while I was still with you I told you these things? And now you know what is restraining, (mercy, grace, patience, kindness, goodness and truth), that he (the lawless one) may be revealed in his time ( when these are no longer embraced by Gods people on earth)...For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He (God, and all His character) who now restrains (when that character is yet still in us) will do so until He (God's character that it meant to be embraced in us) is taken out of the way. (Love and its characteristics are received or rejected voluntarily by an act of our own free will)....And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord (the spoken and living word of truth) will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming...The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders...and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish (who reject, or turn from the truth and instead embrace the lie), because they did not receive the love of the truth (even though it was offered, instead choosing forms, rights and rituals,...all external coverings of what is meant to expose internal truth...false Christianity...the lie), that they might be saved...And for this reason God will send them strong delusion that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrightousness (selfish, self-centerdness that desires to control the freewill of others through the deception of self-righteousness and seeks its own reward)...But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification (setting apart) by the Spirit and belief in the truth (which refuses to allow us to exalt self in place of GOD). II Thessalonians 2:3-13

When Pilate asked Jesus, What is truth? (John 18:38), Jesus didn't answer him because Jesus is the personification of everything that constitutes the truth. Those who have rejected His testimony to the world will never have that question answered until they come up in the second resurrection. What fulfills my heart is the fact that it is written that Jesus was the firstborn among many brethren (Rom. 8:29). In other words, Jesus was the first among many who would be the embodiment of everything that constitutes the truth.
