Lies often taste sweet but it is very corrosive. You become responsible for everything you do and every single thing you say. God is not a man that he should lie. The Bible has said, you would receive your reward according to your thoughts and actions.
Hasn’t the creator of this universe gotten an amazing plan for his children?. An omnipotent and omniscient God whose strength, power and wisdom cannot be fathomed by any other creature. There is no one who can give you 100% assurances of his words and the future better than the maker of this universe. God is not a man that he should lie so trusting him unconditionally makes you an overcomer.
He has been speaking to us since the birth of the human generation. And He has been saying that we should fully rely on Him all the time.
In our world today, people don’t like the truth. Why because it hurts to embrace it. Interestingly politicians are known to be the greatest liars. This isn’t the nature of God…
According to “dailymailuk” a study revealed that Politicians are great liars. They manage to convince themselves that they are telling the truth. Ops… that’s what tickle’s the ears of the masses. Indeed, world leaders have been guilty of untruth. Now, know that God is not like a politician.
Other researchers have been able to figure out that dishonesty is prevalent in our human societies and in one way or the other we all become guilty at a point in time. I can’t be innocent either. It would be like denying the fact that you have sinned before. Who can throw the first stone???.
In 1996, DePaulo, author of “The Hows and Whys of Lies,” placed recorders on a number of students for a week and found out that they have been lying. It showed that, on average, in every third conversation of 10 minutes or more they tell lies. As for adults, it was once every five conversations.
It’s so hard to handle certain crucial situations. Some even say being truthful all the time is not good. Uh oh… may God help us.
You see being a good Christian is not for the fainthearted. It takes real courage not to compromise your Christian values. In all, we are supposed to follow the footpaths of Christ Jesus but not Satan.
A Lie Doesn’t Please God Yet Man Loves It
Before I begin sharing with you Biblical lessons that teach every single believer that God is not a man that he should lie; take a minute and read something about his promises for those who entrust in Him. He will surely put His words into action.
Now you have gotten the notion that God has better plans to make you happy, healthy, successful and above all give you eternal life.
In the next paragraphs, I would like to develop the point based on the amazing plan and promises the Lord has made.
Right from the day of creation all his words and promises have been fulfilled and some are yet to be fulfilled. Since God is not a man that he should lie(Numbers 23:19); if He tells you — you would be the head but not the tail, you must believe it. There is no lie in this. Have faith and it shall be. No need to stress yourself.
Lies In Question
It is so hard to live in a whole year promising yourself that you will never tell a single lie. What about the so-called “white lies?.”
You can’t even justify that in the presence of God unless maybe it is to save a precious life. God values “life” more than gold and riches that is why He sent his only begotten son to come and die on earth to save your precious soul.
You must, therefore, equip yourself with some of the reasons why it is not good to lie. It can destroy you within a twinkle of an eye especially if it angers God. Lies is what killed Ananias and Sapphira.
God was expecting a total honestly from that couple. But they got themselves killed because of “lies.”
The problem is we are full of flaws. Imperfections lie in our hearts. God is not a man that he should lie so his word is the perfect source that can guarantee your future success. Your worth should always be found in Christ Jesus.
On the other hand, Satan is the father of lies and whoever is fond of lies is a son to him. You know very well that you can’t trust a liar. And since we know the Devil is the father of lies why would you trust him?.
Money And Wealth From The Devil
Today’s generation is desperately looking for money, fame and wealth at all costs. In view of this, falling for the crafty devices of the Devil is relatively high.
Satan’s promises are soothing but very destructive. Because he knows some of you a gullible like “Eve.”
Satan is already controlling this world together with his angels. Always roaring like a lion looking for people to devour.
“Give me this and I will make you rich, happy, healthy, successful, etc.” In his deception, there would be a huge hidden cost for whatever he gives you. It will cost you a lot and to the extent of consuming your soul.
Hence anyone who is deceptive is a son of Satan. We can’t trust suchlike. Remember, not everything that glitters is gold.
God Is Not A Man That He Should Lie
For Christian Believers to understand that God is not a man that he should lie – take a look back in the old testament how he vowed to redeem his nation (Israel) from oppression and surely did that.
He has never lied once before. So for you to entrust your whole life and future into his care; take time to read about some of the prophecies the Bible recorded and how they got fulfilled without making God a liar. He is always reliable so no need to be fretful about what He has said about you.
“And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken” (Ezekial 22:28).
He is a just God and so He has made it clear that sin will never go unpunished. You reap what you sow. You can give it a trying by sowing bad seed and see the result… On the other hand, sow good seed and see what will happen. It shall be exactly what the Bible has said.
He blesses, rebukes, punishes and even curses those whose actions deserve. He indeed searches all hearts and gives the appropriate reward.
“I, Yahweh, search the mind. I try the heart, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings” (Jeremiah 17:10).
There is no lie in this so if you claim to be a faithful Christian and you have been going through constant retrogression, take a minute and reflect over your life. God’s reward for you might be hindered by something else. Clear it off and enjoy his amazing blessings.
Doomsday Is Real And Imminent
I hope most of you have heard of the “Google doomsday clock showing signs of the return of Christ Jesus“. Well, since God is not a man that he should lie; sinners will face his wrath at the end of this world.
There is no way an unrepented sinner can escape. In the end time, God will punish evil men together with their father (Lucifer). There are no lies in this because there have been a number of signs indicating we are closer to the end time. Find Jesus Christ now before it is too late.
God has the final say. And he has already sent out his word. Those who believe would be saved and those who despise it would be destroyed.
Stay blessed and spread this message to your friends and loved ones. Tell yourself that God is not a man that he should lie. Every good thing he has said about you would manifest in the flesh for everyone to see. Keep the faith alive.
