When one is looking for truth as an idea, concept, belief, value, moral code or goal it is imperative to keep looking, to never give up, to follow through, to finish the assignment, to not accept delay, to avoid distraction, to persevere.
When you know YESHUA, who is the eternal substance of truth, it is easier to identify truth when it arrives in your life. Deception is always the absence of truth. It is essential to spend more time with Eternal Truth. Simply spoken: More of YESHUA in your life equals more truth and less deception.
For HIS lovingkindness is great toward us, and the truth of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD! (Psalm 117:2, NASB). The sum of Your word is truth, And every one of Your righteous ordinances is everlasting (Psalm 119:16, NASB).
So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free” (John 8:31-32, NASB).
