John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
What would God’s children do without His truth? The fact is God’s truth is the very foundation of all creation! Without His truth there would be NOTHING!
Colossians 1:15-17 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Through the scriptures we see that:
- God’s Truth is an Eternal Truth! It will never change.

4. God’s Truth is an Empowering Truth! It is the power of God.
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
5. God’s Truth is an Edifying Truth! It strengthens the church.
Ephesians 4:11-12 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
6. God’s Truth is an Earnest Truth! Its’ commands are serious.
Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
7. God’s Truth is an Elating Truth! It brings believers great joy!
Rom 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
