Facts Change But God’s Word Remains

John 8:32
32And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Consider the cold, hard facts that these three people faced: The aunt of a lady in our church saw her X-ray which showed that one of her two kidneys was cancerous. A couple in our church read their medical reports which said that they would never be able to produce a child. A lady in our church who acted as a guarantor ended up being asked by the finance company to pay it S$34 million.

When such situations hit us and we allow the facts to settle in our hearts, we end up feeling greatly troubled. But when we let the truths of God’s Word settle them all, we will sense the Holy Spirit bearing witness to the truths that we are believing. He is the Spirit of truth. (John 16:13) He is not the Spirit of facts and does not bear witness to facts.

It may be a fact that you are sick. The doctors say that you are sick. The X-ray film shows that you are sick. But God’s Word says that by Jesus’ stripes you are healed! (Isaiah 53:5) That is the truth about your situation. What is the difference between fact and truth? Facts change, but truth — God’s Word — remains!

When God’s people choose to defy the facts and walk instead in His truths regarding their situations, the Holy Spirit in them will bear witness to the truths that they are believing.

The lady with the cancerous kidney underwent an operation to remove the organ. But praise God, she received supernatural restoration as later X-rays showed two healthy kidneys instead of one! God had formed a new kidney for her!

The childless couple received their miracle bundle of joy after seven years. Today, they are proud parents of not one, but four children!

The church member with the S$34 million debt told the finance company that it was not being fair to her and that God would protect her. The company’s management miraculously decided to cancel her debt!

The next time you are hit by disturbing facts, let God’s Word settle the truth about your situation. And as the Holy Spirit bears witness to the truths that you are believing, the facts will change and you will receive your miracle!

  1. No place in the Old Testament is our God called “Yeshuah/Yeshua”

    People who have this idea that once saved they cannot lose their salvation need to be pointed to Rev. 3: 5: “He who conquers shall be clad thus in white garments, and I will not blot his name out of the book of life; I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.” This means that if people are not faithful they can lose their salvation. Also, Matthew 10: 33, Matt. 24: 45 – 51; Matt. 25: 28 – 30; 25: 41 – 46; Hebrews 6: 4 – 8; 2 Peter 2: 17 – 22.

    Paul also says, “Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him” (Rom. 8: 9) and the proof of having received the Holy Spirit, as always, is what happened on the Day of Pentecost when, “And they were all filled with t he Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues (languages), as the Spirit gave them utterance” (Acts 2: 4). Jesus also makes it clear in Mark 16: 17 – 18, 20 :“And these signs will follow those who believe: they will cast out demons, they will speak in new tongues (languages); they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover”......And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word by the signs that followed it. Amen.”

    The Greek word for “signs” means that these signs prove that a person is an authentic Christian. If they don’t have the signs, then they are just a religious person pretending to be a real Christian. Also, Jesus’ name in Hebrew is not Yeshua/Yeshuah which means Joshua. Jesus’ name means “Yahweh is salvation” and His Hebrew Name is “Yahweh”. All references to Jesus coming in the Old Testament that are quoted in the New Testament, such as on the Day of Pentecost when Peter said, quoting from Joel 2: 28 – 32, “And it shall be that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” Acts 2: 21, he was referring to Jesus. In Hebrew it says, “And it shall be that whoever calls on the name of Yahweh shall be saved”.

    When people pray to Yeshua/Yeshuah, they are praying to Joshua, who can neither hear the prayers nor answer them. The only Bible today that has put God’s name in the English translations is the New Jerusalem Bible where His Name has been replaced 6,823 times with the word in capital letters with LORD. Jesus had to reintroduce His Hebrew Name with “Jesus” which means “Yahweh is Salvation”. No place in the Old Testament is our God called “Yeshuah/Yeshua”. When God, Yahweh became flesh He retained His name “YAHWEH” in the Name “JESUS”. When Moses asked God His Name, He said, “Yahweh” (Ex. 4: 13). Also, in Exodus 6: 2, “And God said to Moses, “I am Yahweh. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty (El Shaddai), but by my name LORD (Yahweh) I did not make myself known to them.” And so, Jesus is the Greek Name for the Hebrew Name Yahweh. I hope this is helpful in dealing with people who, as Jesus said of the Sadducees, “You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God” (Matt. 22: 29 ).
