What is Truth, Pastor David Hertel

Truth not only originates with God, it always leads to God’s conclusions.  Scripture is full of “truths” but if any conclusions drawn from it disagrees with the revelation of the Father by the Son, they need to be reconsidered.  For instance any assumptions we arrive at through studying the mystery of Paul’s thorn should not trump the clear revelation that came through the ministry, miracles and messages of Jesus.  Jesus perfectly revealed God’s attitude and desire concerning all the works of the devil; sickness included.  For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1John 3:8 When people are taught that sickness may be the will of God they are at a disadvantage in contending for their healing.  When people are taught that only Jesus’ immediate disciples were commissioned to carry out the eradication of the destructive works of the devil the devil wins.  The impotence and powerlessness of most of the church is not confirmation that these doctrines are true, it is an indictment that they are wrong headed and anything but truth.
