What is Truth

Understanding Simulated Truths and Real Truths

Many Christians are unaware that they are fallen from God's grace and are under the the power and influence of the evil one as a result of their progenitors disobedience: (1 John 5:19, Eph 2:2-3 Tim 2:26).

They feel that they still bear the true God's image, that they are still under His perfect plan and that this world is ideal and these are the reasons why many of them accept the current world order and the 'truths' that it presents as ideal and  live their lives as if this is the only world and reality that exists. However, the truth can only be found in Christ. All truths are founded on Him and we can only experience truth by continually abiding in Him. (John 14:6,  2 Cor 11:10)
The Lie:

Spiritually speaking,a lie is anything that is outside of God:

-Gen 2:16-17:"And the Lord commanded the man saying:Of every tree of the garden You may freely eat:But of the tree of knowledge of good and evil You shall not eat of it for in the day that You eat of it You shall "surely die"

-Gen 3:4-5:"And the serpent said unto the woman,"Ye shall not surely die."For God doth know that in the day that You eat thereof then Your eyes shall be opened and ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil.

As you can see from the 1st verse above, God told the man that the result of eating from the forbidden tree was "a sure death" However, the subtle serpent, more crafty than every beast of the field made Eve feel that God was lying. He told her thus: "you shall not surely die" The exact opposite of what God told Adam earlier.

Gen 3:6:"And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food and pleasant to the eyes and a tree to be desired to make one wise she took of the fruit thereof,and did eat.....
The main technique used by the devil to deceive humanity has always been to entice people with simulated 'truths' in order to keep them in bondage under a lie. The verse above perfectly depicts this. The serpent made the forbidden and destructive tree look 'good' to Eve. He made it appeal to her senses. He boosted her ego with the promise that she and Adam would "become as gods" if they chose to rebel against God and partake of the tree.

It was true that Adam and Eve's eyes (carnal understanding) were going to be opened if they chose to eat from the forbidden tree. (Gen 3:7 ) It was also true that they would know good and evil (self determination and direction) if they ate from the tree like the serpent said because even God acknowledged it in Gen 3:22.

It was true that Adam and Eve appeared not to die after they ate from the forbidden tree because they became animated by a simulated life (the serpent breath) but the truth is that they died immediately they ate from it. They lost their divine breath.

That is why the Bible states that the serpent is subtle. He offers people simulated truths that entice them to accept him but he blinds them from seeing that these 'truths' are all founded on lies and can lead them nowhere.

Hebrews 3:13:"But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin."

Sin is very deceitful. It can make a dead man feel he is alive (Eph 2:1), It can make  a fornicator think he is having pleasure. It can make a fool feel wise(1 Cor 3:19) make a poor man feel very rich (Rev 3:17), make darkness seem to be light (2 Cor 11:14) , make people in bondage feel they are free and even make Hell seem like Heaven

But these so called 'truths' are designed to entice man into accepting a lie: That he needs glory for himself, ought to be in control of his life and is better off without the Breath (Holy Spirit) of His Maker. Accepting these 'truths cuts man off from His Maker and ultimately destroys his soul.

The lie is therefore that we can do without God, are better without His Holy spirit and are better off if we explore and stir up the evil nature in our hearts which can make us become gods. All the so called 'truths' that are founded on this lie are simulated in order to keep humanity in bondage under the lie.

-Ecc 8:11:"Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily,therefore the heart of the son of men is fully set in them to do evil.

It is the same strategy that Satan used to fool Adam and Eve that He uses to fool humanity today. He uses the immediate gratification that sin offers to entice people into obeying Him. It is 'true' that sin and living for self often offer pleasure and inflate the ego and that self denial is often very painful and humiliating. It is true that sin affords us the opportunity to be in control of our own lives (Gen 3:5)

But the real truth is that the end result of sin is destruction and the end result of righteousness is eternal life. However, satan does his best to shield this from people.He simply shows them the simulated truth: The pleasure derived from disobedience and that is why many people prefer sin to practicing righteousness.

The Truth:

The truth is simply what God said in Gen 2:16-17 which I quoted above: Any attempt to seek a life outside of God would lead us to eternal death. We can never have a life outside of God. We are incomplete without Christ (Col 2:10) The only hope of us having life is by being submitting to the Holy Spirit.

When we choose to disobey God and partake in sin, we might relish the fact we have the the freedom to choose what we feel is good for us and be fooled to think that this makes us gods because we do not have to submit to God when making choices but the fact remains that we can never be God and hence can never be good.

We can only make good choices or define evil perfectly like God when we submit to God. That is why Jesus calls us evil (Matt 7:11).The truth is that any man without God's indwelling presence(breath) is simply a carnal beast (Ecc 3:18-19,Prov 12:1) Satan's plan is to entice man with the pleasures offered by a life of disobedience in order to ultimately debase and destroy Him.

We might be fooled to think that because our "eyes are opened",We can see the way we ought to take and hence do not need God to direct us or make any decisions for us but the fact remains that We can never see without God:

-2 Cor 4:4:"In Whom the God of this world hath blinded the minds of those that believe not....

-Acts 26:17-18:"Delivering You from the people and from the gentiles to whom i now send You,To open the Blind eyes...."

The truth is that even though satan opened Adam and Eve's carnal eyes with His 'light', he blinded their Spiritual eyesight and hence they lost sight of their true nature and who they were created to be.The truth is that the reality they saw after the fall was simulated in order to keep them in bondage under his lie and ultimately cut them off eternally from their life (The Holy Spirit)

-Psalm 32:8:'I will instruct You and teach You in the way that You shall go,I will guide You with my eye"

We need to be guided by the Eye of God. That is the only way we would be able to see things the way God sees them,see the reality and truth that He wants us to see, and bear His image. Adam was able to name all the animals the same way God would have named them prior to the fall because he saw with God's Eye (Saw things the way God saw them)

That was also why He recognized Eve as His rib even though when he was sleeping when the rib was removed from Him.

When We see with God's eye,We think the way he thinks and bear His image.So it is really God that makes us like Gods.Satan promises to make us like gods but debases us by making us beastly.

Because we have been re-engineered by the forbidden fruit (sin) to love and desire lies, the only way back to the real truth and eternal bliss is always rough, narrow, lonely, painful, uneasy and self denying because we have to deny our simulated selves of its desires in order to discover our true selves.

The way to eternal destruction is full of pleasure,praise from men,is broad, lively and self indulging because it allows people to indulge their simulated selves but it destroys the soul (The real self) by cutting it off from its Maker (Matt 7-13-14)

I know it seems contradictory that the ways contrast their destinations and that is why Satan has been so successful in deceiving people over the ages into accepting the way that leads to destruction.

The lie is what the current world order is built on.Even though the lie has simulated truths, they are designed to keep people in bondage under a lie and are intended to entice people into accepting the devil and rejecting their true Maker.

You might seem to be successful and smart in the lie but in the truth you are a big fool and dead because you can never have a life apart from God.

The truth is what God's ideal world order (Eden) is built on. Even though we cannot see the truth (because we have been blinded by the false light of the lie) it exists.

The truth is that we need God. The truth is that we are useless without God. The truth is that we belong with God, can never have a life without Him and that we belong not to ourselves or to the devil but to Him.

You might seem to be poor, foolish and wretched in the lie (because of your testimony for Christ) But the truth is that you are very wise and rich (Rev 2:9,1 cor 1:25-26)

The only way Eve could experience the simulated truths that enslave humanity was to die to the Real truths.That is why Eve had to die to her true life: The Holy spirit in order to experience the temporal gratification of a self driven life. In order to taste the fruit she felt was good, pleasant and could make her wise (simulated truths) she had to forfeit the real truth

-Ecc 7:8:" Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit."
Now that all of her offspring (seed) are naturally in bondage as a result of her disobedience, the only way to experience the truth the way our progenitors did before they fell from God's grace is to die to the simulated truths and accept the real truth (By becoming born again of the Holy spirit).

It always causes pain because we have been re-engineered by satan to love the simulated truths but the price is worth it .The end result is what matters not the immediate gratification that the simulated truths offer.
