“Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ to further the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness — in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time, … .”
God is the essence of truth. However, we can say that all day long and it doesn’t necessarily make it so. As the old saying goes, “the proof is in the tasting”. First one must have an open mind, heart and spirit to receive from Him. Then they must consider His word for what it is, or at least what it says it is. The Bible refers to itself as the “word of God” 39 times in Today’s New International Version. The most important thing, though, is that they must release their faith. They must believe in an unseen deity. Once they let their guard down and allow the Spirit of God to minister to THEIR spirit, they will begin to see, feel and sense that God IS who He says He is; that He IS the truth and that there is no falsehood in Him. It is definitely a faith and trust issue.
Any other means by which people attempt to achieve eternal life shall vanish right in front of them. As Christians, our one true hope for eternity is wrapped up in a promise from an unseen Spirit deity we call Jehovah God. We trust Him because He has never given us a reason to NOT trust Him. The more we know about Him, the closer we allow our relationship with Him to be, the more we will realize that He has not, will not and could not lie to us. He is our only totally reliable source of hope in this lost and dying world.
