Woe To Those Who Find Truth

"Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it." —Voltaire

The world loves people who profess to be "Truth Seekers," but, oh, how they hate those who profess to have found it. As long as you are searching for the truth, the world cheers you on. But as soon as you claim to have found it, they chide and ridicule you. It is okay if you search for the truth, but it is never okay for you to find the truth. In this world where truth is usually in the minority, the world wants you to be a perpetual searcher finding nothing.

Jesus said, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me" (John 14:6). Jesus is the Truth. His Word is truth. Unless a man or a woman comes through Christ Jesus, they will never obtain salvation! Every single man and woman who does not believe in and on the Lord Jesus will die in their sins and perish in Hell for all eternity, separated from God the Father and His love. The only truth in this world is Jesus. If you believe anything else, you believe the lie. When you have found the Lord Jesus and He has become your precious Saviour, you have found the truth. "If you continue in My word, then you are truly My disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free" (John 8:31-32).

"Truth Seekers" are slaves. They are slaves to the unknown. They are slaves to the imagination. They are slaves to the lie. They are slaves to their sin. But those who know the truth have been set free. They have been set free from the unknown. They have been set free from the imagination. They have been set free from the lie. They have been set free from their sins. They are free in Christ Jesus. They are free in life. While the rest of the world runs amuck like a chicken with its head cut off, the believer in Christ Jesus knows that God the Father is in complete control and that nothing happens outside of His will. The believer in Jesus rests in the fact that Jesus is in control. All things have been subjected to His authority. The believer in Jesus understands this world in a way the slave to his/her own unrighteousness will never understand it.

"Let us rejoice in the truth, wherever we find its lamp burning." —Albert Schweitzer
