What is Truth?
  THE MISSING LINK
Introduction

About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition.
Sir Isaac Newton

Eternity, life after death, the Big Bang, the Second Coming of Christ, black holes, the Millennium, universal consciousness, the Rapture of the Church, the Jews and the Arabs, the Great Tribulation, the New Age, 666, the Great White Throne Judgment, the Anti-Christ, reincarnation, Heaven and Hell, Christ consciousness; whew, I’m confused already and that’s just the short list. How much do we really know about any of these subjects; or care to know for that matter.
Today we have the Church, with about 8000 different denominations, they even have non-denominational denominations, all fighting over who’s right. We have prosperity theology and now the secular community has entered the race with a horse of their own, the law of attraction, the name-it-and-claim-it consciousness. With so many philosophies and religions offered up, what is the answer?
Anyone who doesn’t know the world is searching for answers hasn‘t been paying attention. But people are not necessarily searching for truth.

“ … The truth must be kept secret, and the masses need a teaching proportioned to their imperfect reason.”
- Albert Pike 33 -
Morals and Dogma

These days I’m finding it increasingly difficult to hang on to the truth myself, much less convey it to others. It seems all the people are asleep. The most frustrating part of it is, they don’t want to wake up. No one wants to be disturbed from their slumber.
Quite frankly, I didn’t like being awakened either, and some times it’s tempting to just go back to sleep myself, after all, who really cares, not many I’ll tell you that.
Wah-wah-wah. There, I feel better now.
The truth is, we’ve been lied to and are still being lied to. The depth of that lie leads all the way down the rabbit hole to Hell. I’m not going to lie to you. You need to know the whole truth in order to understand TRUTH.
Look at truth. How does one find it? Well, the truth is, you can’t find it. It finds you.
Since you’re still reading this, that means hopefully, it’s found you to. We’ll see.
Let’s first look at, what do YOU believe in? Do you thank God you’re an Atheist? Have you picked out one of the many christ to follow and believe in? Perhaps you are god? How about your consciousness? Your Energy? Are you part of the universe? Perhaps you believe in nothing, or all of the above; none of the above?
We’ve heard it all, “There is no truth, your truth, my truth, truth is relative.” All these truths are lies. There is a truth though, only one, it is THE truth. Do you want to know what IT is? Take the Red Pill.
Do you consider yourself intelligent? How about logical? If so then accept my challenge. Take the Red pill. I’ll give you the facts, the verifiable facts. Do you own research as I have, or take my word for it if you like. I won’t ask you to BELIEVE anything, just keep reading.
There is one thing you MUST know though, keep in mind the enemy (and there IS an enemy) is gathering it‘s forces. That should be logical to any intellectual.
I KNOW for a fact that the Bible is true, it’s factual. I’ve spent almost thirty years testing it. I can’t find the chink in it’s armor. You might think you have (or more likely someone told you of a chink, a contradiction) but it’s not real. Later we’ll look at some of the more interesting ones and you’ll see, there are none.
I can’t (so I know you can’t either) understand the ways of God, nor the mind of God. If we could, God wouldn’t be much of a God now would He. I do know I have more sense than Shirley Maclaine and David Icke, at least I know I’m not God.
God however is sympathetic to our human frailties and, in His own way, tried to make it easy for us.
Now I don’t know about you but I can’t predict the future. I can make certain assumptions based on experience but that‘s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about ‘predicting’ the future, real live prophecy. Shoot, I can’t even predict the stock market, if I could, even five minutes ahead, or a few seconds, I’d be rich. Same goes for you and you know it.
Well the real God can predict the future, perfectly, 100% of the time. The way we can verify that is history, which in the case of the Bible is merely fulfilled prophecy. If he’s really God then he knows what’s going to happen, right?
In case you didn’t know it, the Bible is almost all predictive. Not just in the prophetic form but in story form, types and foreshadowings. The Bible is the ONLY book that does that, the only one!
Most of the subjects mentioned in the first paragraph or two of what you just read come from our knowledge of Bible prophecy. that’s the only reason you’re scared of the number 666, the anti-Christ, or the tribulation; Bible prophecies. Those are all predictive prophecies, but another way God tells us what’s going to happen is much less known or understood. I call it His-story.
The Bible tell us our future in story form, God uses real life people in real life situations. Once you understand that these people and their stories are types or foreshadows of God, His family and His-story, then you’ll see Bible stories are multi-dimensional.
God the Father used these people and their life situations to tell His-story. God does expect us to have enough sense to see and understand and, the fact is, most of us probably would if there weren’t someone else whispering the lie in our other ear.
The lie, what lie? It is, that we are all not sheep, sheep with our own wool pulled over our own eyes, blinded to the truth. What truth? The truth is we are ALL slaves, born into bondage, born into a prison, a prison for our minds, the prison of our flesh.
We’re all in denial. We all want to escape, any escape, but we‘re trapped like rats, prisoners and slaves to our flesh. Alcohol, drugs, sex, religion, entertainment, meditation, universal consciousness; all new age theories encourage us to reach inside and expand our minds, our consciousness.
The Bible states it clearly, we’re born-sinners; we‘re born that way, each with an inclination towards one or more of these, and other, escapes. We’re born into bondage, a bondage of the mind and flesh which constantly argue with each other, confused over right and wrong, fighting our inclinations towards evil, hate, bigotry, selfishness, greed.
None of us comes into this world loving, sharing, gracious, speaking the truth, caring about others, generous, giving. You know that’s true. We’ll get into the details of the how and why later, but believe me, (whoops, sorry, I know I said I wouldn’t ask you to believe me, but I was lying, I just couldn’t help it) Anyway, I don’t know about you, but I didn’t have to teach my children how to lie.
The truth is what we instinctively flee from. You know that’s true don‘t you. Here’s a truth (like it or not) from the Bible. God informs us we’re sinners and He offers proof. When we’re faced with a truth or a lie, we invariably go with the lie.
Why the Bible and not the Koran or the Torah or any one of a number of religious books? I’ll tell you why, because, as we’ll demonstrate later, the Bible is NOT a religious book. Surprised? Keep reading.
So, the way we’re going to approach this is, we’re going to look at three different, yet related, Bible stories, each telling in it’s own way the entire story of God, His family (did you know God has a family?) and the history of man-kinds future. Then, we’ll let you make up your own mind if it‘s THE truth.
But, keep in mind, you’re going to have to resist your natural inclination to flee from the truth until it catches you, OK?

The world is a dangerous place,
not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who
look on and do nothing.

Albert Einstein

Which one are you?
