25 A true [emeth] witness [ed] delivereth [natsal] souls [nephesh]: but a deceitful [mirmah] witness speaketh [puwach] lies [kazab]. 26 In the fear [yir'ah] of the LORD [Yahovah] is strong [oz] confidence [mibtach]: and his children [ben] shall have a place of refuge [machaceh]. KJV-Interlinear 25 A truthful witness saves lives, But he who speaks lies is treacherous. 26 In the fear of the LORD there is strong confidence, And his children will have refuge. NASB
Satan is the father of lies. Falsehood is his pattern and policy. From the Garden where he deceived Eve up until now, Satan has riddled history with his lies and distortions of false philosophies and false views of life.
The only source of truth is Bible doctrine. Only through an understanding of Gods Word can a person have a clear view of life and gain an insight and true orientation to God, to life, to others and to ones self.
The whole purpose of false views in history and in life is to deceive and to distort and to lead astray everyone who opens themselves up to its traps.
The lies of life are treacherous. They lead to ones downfall, to ones failures in life, to ones failure in eternity. Destruction and loss is the only outcome of the lies of life.
Lies come only from ignoring the Word of God. When a person is not interested in Bible doctrine, then they open themselves up to all other opinions in the world. All other opinions are lies. There is only one source of truth - God. Any other source of information comes from Satan and his pattern of thought which he initiated long ago and man just perpetuated and enhanced throughout the centuries.
Truth is doctrine, beginning with salvation. There is only one way to be saved - to believe in Christ. There is no other way to be saved. And saved from what? From eternal separation from God.
Death is a separation from something, and the worst death one can have is being separated from God forever. Since God holds and sustains the universe, then to separate oneself from that bonding agent means that you have nothing to hold your life together. That is total chaos. And since any person doesn't have the power or knowledge to hold things together, then that means eternal terror and misery to the maximum.
Mankind will never know how to create his own universe nor hold it together in all of its minute detail.
To reject this truth of salvation means certain death and destruction for the individual. Likewise when one believes in Christ he is of course saved from that eternal death. But there is more to the spiritual life than just being saved. There is the growth process to spiritual maturity and the tremendous prosperity and riches that go along with it. Remember in the previous verse where the crown of the wise is what? Riches. And riches means wealth beyond your imagination.
Th world would have you ignore your Bible study. You don't need it. It is all a child's story, and so forth. But the world is full of lies. To believe the world is to lose out on ones eternal inheritance and extra rewards of eternity. To believe the Bible and to continue ones study of the Bible on a daily basis it to insure ones success both for time now and ones dreams in eternity.
The world will throw all sorts of distractions and false beliefs and false opinions at you, just to get you away form your Bible study. If you listen to the world then you will lose out in life now and in eternity.
If, however you listen to God, then you not only secure your life and future, but you gain a refuge, a fortress, a palace in which you can live your life now in the security of Gods protection and have confidence in all of Gods promises and protections.
The world offers no promise, no protection, no future - nothing.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
