WHAT IS TRUTH?





Standing before Pilate, Jesus bore several accusations from the Jews.  Under trial, Pilate asked the accused Jesus what his crime was.

“My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” Jesus replied.

“You are a king, then!” said Pilate.

Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

What is truth?” retorted Pilate.  Reference John 18:37-38

This grand question has been asked for centuries. Several philosophers and men of various schools of thought have attempted to answer this question.

Most people say truth is relative to perception, belief, culture and more. However, perception, belief, status, times, culture and all of which makes truth relative are shifting factors.


There is a need to identify the absolute truth, upon which our fragile lives, desperate hearts and feeble souls can stand when all the shifting factors give way.

We didn’t get Jesus response to Pilate’s question; perhaps because Pilate walked away as soon as he asked. 

However, Jesus already told us what he meant by the truth long before he stood before Pilate.

In John 13 verse 20, Jesus says, “I am telling you the truth: whoever receives anyone I send receives me also; and whoever receives me receives him who sent me." (GNT)

In John 14 verse 6, Jesus boldly declares, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; No one comes to the father except through me.


The identity of Jesus as the truth is the same through all generations, across diverse cultures of the world and shifting times and seasons.



Jesus as the truth is the sanity that exists in a world of chaos and epileptic experiences.

What would you rather believe?

A truth that is relative and ever shifting in perspective or the truth which is eternal and ever enduring through the ages?

I urge you this day, to believe the truth.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV)

IN THE WORDS OF JESUS...

It was the time of the passover. I had seen 32 passover feasts, during which my family and I, my disciples and I (When I began my public ministry), would slay the chosen lamb in honor of the father's ordinance. In those 32 years, everytime we ate the passover lamb, I was reminded that someday I would be the lamb that was slain. This 33rd year as I walked into Jerusalem on the 10th day of Nissan when the Lamb was to be chosen, I willingly gave myself as the lamb to be slain. They hailed, called out to me hosanna meaning "Save Us". With every shout and scream, I was reminded of my purpose. The very reason I was born was to die for these and many to be saved. Every voice, every stare, every palm tree, stirred in me a strong desire to accomplish my purpose. They thought they were asking me for political redemption but I knew they were asking me for total redemption. That week, I had the most temptations of my life . My mind fought against the enemy as he

PROPHETIC TIMELINE

Passover is 6 days away. It would begin on the evening of April 8, 2020 and will end April 16, 2020 . This year's passover is very unique. According to the Lord, It has never been this way before and will not be afterwards.  Here are some of the things that makes this year's passover unique. During the Passover I see horses racing down in haste towards a set destination. I hear the words, haste, haste!! At the sound of those words, the horsemen ride faster. Furious is the best word to describe the speed.. Time has been adjusted to run faster  than normal , beginning from the start of the 2020 Feast of Passover. We will henceforth notice the days swiftly moving by. The gates of righteousness will open wider than usual for more people to enter . This means that salvation or soul harvest will be extremely easy during this time. The Lord is asking us to intercede for the salvation of souls and witness to people. If you have been contending for territories, o
