Today's verses are John 8:43-45: "Why do you not understand what I say?  It is because you cannot bear to hear my word.  You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth because there is no truth in him.  When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.  But because I tell the truth, you do not believe me." My child, throughout my teachings, many people did not understand what I was saying.  Their carnal minds constantly misinterpreted the spiritual truths I was trying to bring to them.  In these verses, I tell them (and you) why.  It's because you cannot hear them.  You are unable to hear and accept, my word.

Then I gave them (and you) some of my most insightful teachings regarding my archenemy, the devil.  The reason my listeners didn't accept and receive my teachings was because the source of their life was the devil.  They were born in sin, finding its existence in the human heart because of the temptations of the evil one.  He was the one who has caused murder from the beginning.  He was the one who incited Cain to kill his brother Abel.  He is a murderer.

He has absolutely nothing to do with the truth.  He can't stand in the truth at all.  Indeed, he is the father of all lies.  At the fall, in his temptation of Eve, he blatantly contradicted my Father's word to them.  But he is only operating according to his character.  He is a liar.  He is the father of lies.  Every lie in creation has its roots in him.  When he acts, he only acts in accordance with who he is.

Yet I spoke the truth to them, and they didn't believe me.  Again, it was because their hearts only wanted to hear falsehood.

My child, I am the way, the truth and the life.  Truth is my character.  It is who I am.  I came to earth to teach you the truth.  Be set free from the tyranny of the father of lies.  Be set free from his lies that only want to destroy you.

Believe in me.  Believe I only want your health, happiness and wholeness.  Put on the belt of truth first, before you put on any other piece of the armor of God.  It is the piece that holds all other pieces together.  Reject moral relativism.  Believe there is absolute truth.  Please understand that you don't break my laws, my moral truth, but my laws, my moral truth, breaks you when you disobey it.

My truth will set your free from the power of sin and death.  My truth given to you is one of the major reasons my Father in heaven sent me to earth.  Reject the lies of the devil, ones that incarcerate you in the power of sin.  I came to set the captives free from sin.  I came to set you free from sin.  Believe me!

You can trust me today.
