The Word Which I Have Spoken

The Word Which I Have Spoken

Most everybody  has something to say  —  and it may  or  may not  be of value.     Some stoutly speak  words  of deception  —  some speak  without any actual knowledge  —  and others proclaim known truths.     We need  to listen carefully  and be able  to figure out  what the truth is.

All  of Jesus’ words  have been proven true  as they are the fulfillment  of many Old Testament prophecies.     As true as all  of Jesus’ words are,  there are many false preachers,  who put a bit  of a twist  on it,  so that their false words mislead people  into wrong beliefs  that might steal us  away  from a saving faith.

That is why  it is  of the utmost importance  for all  of us  to study God’s word  in the Bible.     When we come  to the realization  that Jesus’  sacrificial suffering,  death,  and resurrection  really do  forgive us  of absolutely  all  of our sins,   we are cleansed  of all our sins  through faith  in Jesus.     Faith  in Jesus  makes us righteous  in God’s eyes  and welcomed  in heaven.

That is why Jesus said  in John 15:3,

You are already clean  because of  the word  which I have spoken  to you.

Jesus taught the truths  of God.     Believing those truths  makes us “clean” and righteous.    If we don’t believe  all that Jesus taught,  our unbelief  leaves us  unclean  in God’s eyes.     Why?     Because unbelief  is the same  as calling God Almighty  a liar.     Why should anyone  be calling God  a liar  when He has fulfilled  so many prophesies  in Christ Jesus?

At the same time,  those who believe  in Jesus’ authority  to forgive,  will be persecuted  for their true faith.     There are many Bible verses  that speak  of God’s faithful  being persecuted  for their faith.     2 Timothy 3:12 is one such verse,

Indeed,  all who desire  to live godly  in Christ Jesus  will be persecuted.

But,  knowing God’s power  is victorious  over all,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for Your truths.”
