HE LIFTS US UP: TRUTH or Consequences (Matthew 12:34 and 5:8)

truth or consequences

Though that was the name of a TV show many years ago, that is not the “Truth or Consequences” that I am talking about. I am talking about the whole truth versus the half-truths, lies, or deceit that many masterfully get away with…at least for a time or in this world.

You see, there are those who are very honest. These are the ones who have a “pure” heart and telling lies is not part of their nature.

Then you have others who would never tell the whole truth. Many of these people manage to say what people want to hear and are able to manipulate their conversations depending on who they are talking to. Many times these become “professional liars or pathological liars” and do not even show any of the physiological signs that most normal people would exhibit when not telling the truth–the signs that are picked up by polygraphs or lie-detector tests. So unfortunately, many innocent people can be manipulated, tricked, or deceived into believing the lies. They think that they are getting a jewel of a person, but they are really getting an imitation—not the real thing. That is why we need to know what to look for before we get involved with someone. We need to realize that “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” (Matthew 12:34) In other words, what is in their heart will be exhibited by what comes out of their mouths. The signs may be subtle, but there will be signs.

In some of my previous posts, I have discussed how you can tell a person by the fruit that he/she produces…in other words, their behavior or how they act or the words out of their mouths. In another post, I discussed what true love is…patient, kind, not boastful, etc…Love does not hurt. It is not abusive. So the reason that I am bringing this up is that it is important that we know the TRUTH about someone–or we will suffer the CONSEQUENCES!! Whether the consequence of being deceived or tricked is divorce, or marrying an abuser, or marrying someone just after your money, it hurts when a victim finds out that they were used and betrayed. But, God knows all truth. He knows what is in everyone’s heart. He knows who has the pure heart and who does not.                  
And He will be the final judge. Many of these liars and deceivers may have gotten away with hurting their innocent victims during this lifetime, but we all have to answer for what we have done in this life and will have consequences for our own actions. And even though divorce, abuse, and being betrayed hurts, I would much rather be the one with the pure heart.
“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.”    Matthew 5:8

  1. “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8

    I needed to hear this verse apparently because it jumped off the page. I’m constantly having to reassure myself that I love myself and believe it. At the end of the day, all I have is me, I cannot rely on external validation of love and affection to heal the wounds created by my abusers. I have me and Gods word. Thanks for the direction 🙂

      Just know that God loves you. As we keep our hearts pure before the Lord, releasing our abusers to Him, He will bring healing and restoration to us. We have to let go of our past so He can move us into our future… which He already has much better plans for us than we have chosen ourselves. Hang onto Him Angel!! I pray that you will see the Miraculous Hand of God in your life. Many blessings to you, my fellow “Angel”…

    I’m struggling right now with someone who is just the type of liar you write about. I hate to walk away. I feel like it can be “fixed”. Please pray with me that I hear God’s wisdom and that he gives me the strength to do what he asks of me.

      My heart goes out to you for I know the difficulty that you face. I also thought that I could “fix” my spouse. I prayed for years that he would change. I did not even understand the level of deceit that I was living in as I was trapped in a web of lies. I can tell you that God is the only One who knows the truth. God is also the only One who can change a person. So, if they are not seeking God and seeking Godly counsel, then chances are they will never change. God finally told me through a miraculous phone call… “He is a liar! He is a deceiver! He will never change! plus many other comments. I knew at that point that I had to let go and trust God. Hold onto God for your very life. If he is not willing to let you seek God with your whole heart and soul to guide your path, then he is not worthy of your love. Remember, God is the Key to every question and every obstacle that we face. I pray that God strengthen you and guide your path, giving you wisdom along the way. I pray that God will also expose everything done in darkness and bring it to the Light to give you clarity…. Many blessings to you!!
