Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, "If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:31-32 NKJV)
The Truth About Healing
What does the truth have to do with health and healing? Everything! It is not just the sick that need healing. It's not just the hungry that needs food. Everyone needs health and healing just the same as everyone needs food. Freedom follows the truth just as bondage follows lies and falsehoods. There is no truth or freedom in sickness and disease; only bondage. We all need freedom from sickness and disease that comes to us from the truth about healing to keep us free from the bondages of sickness and disease. The truth about health and healing is the spiritual food we need to keep us free from the bondages of sickness and disease.
Do we even know the truths about health and healing? Do most of us even care? We should. The world teaches us to become "experts" in sickness and disease. We should beome "experts" in health and healing. We should know and memorise every scripture in the Bible about health and healing so we will know "the truth that will make us free". There is a lot of truth in the Bible about health and healing.
So,what is the truth about healing? The Bible says that "born again" believers were healed. (1 Peter 2:24) We are not healed because we look healed or feel healed. We are healed because the Word of God says we are healed. That is the truth. Do we believe the truth of the Word of God or do we believe what we see or feel?
Jesus provided healing for us all when He took the stripes upon His back. He provided salvation to all when He died for our sins. Not all will receive the healing Jesus has provided and not all will receive salvation for their sins even though it is the will of God. God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9) Our healing is a spiritual issue more than a physical issue just the same as our salvation is a spiritual issue more than a physical issue. Everyone's healing has already been provided for just the same as their salvation has already been provided for.

While the facts concerning any historical document can change with the discovery of new documents or evidences, the truths concerning the theology of God’s Word never changes and can be trusted, relied upon, and depended on for doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction. (2 Timothy 3:16) Facts often change; the truth of God’s Word never changes. We cannot always trust in the facts of History or Science, but we can always trust in the theological truths of God’s Word.
Heavenly Father, we love You. Help us to know the truth of Your Word and to walk in it as You will direct us. Father we want to know and abide in Your truth. May we always worship You in spirit and in truth. Help us to focus on and to magnify Your truth. Your Word is truth. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!

"To Ever Live Without Me"
by Jody McBrayer
What is truth? Truth is the standard by which we measure everything about life. It is the standard by which we measure everything about good and evil; heaven and hell; God and man. Truth is all about the Word of God. Truth is the foundation of who we are and everything we have "In Christ".
Truth is absolute. It never changes. It is always true, whether we believe it or not. The truth is the very foundation of all that God is as well as His Word to us. Truth gives the substance for our faith to work. That is why we can trust it and rely on it. We can depend on the truth that never changes because the truth is a moral and personal characteristic of God that never changes. We can always count on Him. He is “the God of truth” (Isaiah 65:16).
The psalmist declared, “Your law is truth” (Psalm 119:142), “all Your commandments are truth” (Psalm 119:151), and “the entirety of Your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160). Because of His perfect nature and will, God has to speak and act in truth; He cannot lie. (1 Samuel 15:29; Hebrews 6:18; James 1:17-18) If God were ever to lie then He could never be trusted. God is truth and always tells the truth. That is why we can always trust Him.
The Word of God or the expression of God was manifested in the flesh when Jesus was born, “the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14) That is why Jesus could boldly claim that He was "the truth". (John 14:6) Because He was full of truth. Jesus could never lie. If He ever lied He could never be trusted and therefore He could never be our Lord or Savior.
All Jesus said was true, because He always told the truth which He heard from God. (John 8:40) Jesus only did and said what He heard His Father saying and saw His Father doing. “Then Jesus answered and said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner”. (John 5:19 NKJV)
