7-JESUS—THE WAY

JESUS — THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE
John 14:6; 4:23-24; 8:31-32
John 14:6 ASV Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life: no one cometh unto the Father, but by me.
John 4:23-24 ASV But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth: for such doth the Father seek to be his worshippers. (24) God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
John 8:31-32 ASV Jesus therefore said to those Jews that had believed him, If ye abide in my word, then are ye truly my disciples; (32) and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

JESUS IS THE WAY TO THE FATHER.

  1. JESUS IS THE TRUTH ABOUT GOD AND THE VERY FUNDAMENTAL NATURE OF GOD.
  2. THEREFORE, HE REVEALS TRUTH AND IMPARTS ETERNAL LIFE TO US.
  3. Jesus does not tell them about the WAY!  
  4. Nor does He show them the WAY!
  5. He does not guide them along the WAY!
  6. JESUS SAID I AM THE WAY!

John 4:23 - WORSHIP IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH. Jesus teaches about worship --

  1. In SPIRIT points to the level at which true worship occurs.
    1. a person must come to God in complete surrender.
    2. a person must come with a spirit that is directed by the truth and activity of the Holy Spirit.
  2. In TRUTH [Gk ALETHEIA]. What is truth?  
    1. TRUTH IS the Heart of the Gospel — John 8:32 ASV and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. — Galatians 2:5 ASV to whom we gave place in the way of subjection, no, not for an hour; that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. — Ephesians 1:13 ASV in whom ye also, having heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation, - in whom, having also believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise.
  3. Therefore worship must take place —
    1. according to the truth of the Father.
    2. revealed in the Son - Jesus Christ our Lord.
    3. received through the Holy Spirit.
    4. as recorded in the Word.
  4. Anyone who advocates worship that set aside Truth and doctrines of the Word -- have grossly set aside the foundation for true worship.
  5. TRUTH IS Characteristic of God — Romans 15:8 ASV For I say that Christ hath been made a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, that he might confirm the promises given unto the fathers, — Psalms 31:5 ASV Into thy hand I commend my spirit: Thou hast redeemed me, O Jehovah, thou God of truth. — John 3:7 ASV Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born anew.
  6. TRUTH IS Incarnate {the embodiment of} in Christ — John 14:6; Ephesians 4:21 ASV if so be that ye heard him, and were taught in him, even as truth is in Jesus: — 2Cor 11:10 ASV (10) As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this glorying in the regions of Achaia.
  7. TRUTH IS Central {INTRINSIC = incorporated in or the nature of} in the Holy Spirit — John 14:17 ASV even the Spirit of truth: whom the world cannot receive; for it beholdeth him not, neither knoweth him: ye know him; for he abideth with you, and shall be in you. — John 16:23 ASV And in that day ye shall ask me no question. Verily, verily, I say unto you, if ye shall ask anything of the Father, he will give it you in my name.

WHAT IS TRUTH? John 1:14 ASV And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father), full of grace and truth. — John 5:31 ASV If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

  1. Jesus Christ is the TRUTH - text.
  2. TRUTH is not a perception, but a reality in the Holy Spirit.
  3. To love in union with Christ requires speaking the TRUTH — Ephesians 1:13-14 ASV in whom ye also, having heard the word of the truth, the gospel of your salvation, - in whom, having also believed, ye were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, (14) which is an earnest of our inheritance, unto the redemption of God's own possession, unto the praise of his glory.
  4. To claim Christ and to possess salvation - yet not live and speak according to TRUTH, is to be hypocritical or deceived — 1John 1:6 ASV If we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in the darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
  5. Those who have no truth in them show the true condition of their heart — John 8:44 ASV Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and standeth not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof. — Acts 5:3 ASV But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thy heart to lie to the Holy Spirit, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
  6. They are outside the Kingdom of Heaven — Revelation 21:8 ASV But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part shall be in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death. — Revelation 21:27 ASV and there shall in no wise enter into it anything unclean, or he that maketh an abomination and a lie: but only they that are written in the Lamb's book of life.
  7. A liar is of the synagogue of Satan — Revelation 3:9 ASV Behold, I give of the synagogue of Satan, of them that say they are Jews, and they are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
  8. A liar is diametrically opposed to everything of Jesus, the Way, the Truth, the Life — Revelation 21:8 ASV But for the fearful, and unbelieving, and abominable, and murderers, and fornicators, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, their part shall be in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone; which is the second death.

IN THE CONTEXT OF HUMAN KNOWLEDGE MANY
THINGS ARE TRUE — v32 - YET THERE IS ONLY
ONE "TRUTH" THAT WILL SET PEOPLE FREE — John 8:31-32 ASV Jesus therefore said to those Jews that had believed him, If ye abide in my word, then are ye truly my disciples; (32) and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

  1. Freedom from sin - bondage and Satanic dominion.
  2. Truth of Jesus Christ as found in God's Word.
  3. Scripture, especially, the original revelation of Christ and the NT apostles testifies to the Truth that frees men from sin, the world and the demonic — Ephesians 2:20 ASV being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the chief corner stone.
  4. Further revelation TRUTH is not needed to complete or make more adequate the Gospel of Christ — 1Cor 2:10-13 ASV (10) But unto us God revealed them through the Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. (11) For who among men knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of the man, which is in him? even so the things of God none knoweth, save the Spirit of God. (12) But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is from God; that we might know the things that were freely given to us of God. (13) Which things also we speak, not in words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Spirit teacheth; combining spiritual things with spiritual words.
  5. Saving Truth is revealed from God by His Holy Spirit — 1Cor 2:10 AMP Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man's scrutiny].
