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

This is a golden verse for me in the scripture. It is a verse of freedom, power and higher anointing. Understanding this scriptural verse will add great flavor to your life. It is a basic truth that we were created by the word of God; this Word of God is the Truth; that means we were created by the truth. Being created by the Truth, the truth has an eternal effect on the spirit; success, victory, prosperity, health  and generally your life, because truth is your source.

Lying is not consistent with your nature. Neither any other sin is consistent with a believer’s nature in Christ Jesus, because you are wired for the Truth. That you are wired for the truth means that without the truth success will be difficult. That is why falsehood, deceit, deception, lies and lying, etc destroy the human spirit and cause a friction between man and God in Christ Jesus.

Some people tell lies out of fear of punishment, while others do it for plain deception. Whatever your excuse may be, it is good that you train yourself to tell the truth at all times. That is your nature. Train you self to do what is right always, that is your nature in Christ Jesus.

Our theme verse says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free,” Jesus said this statement because man was created by God to be free, victorious, to be at liberty to serve God  – John 4:24 tells us to worship Him in the Truth. The reason for this is that we have been created or designed by the truth for the Truth.

The Truth functions with knowledge of the word. It empowers through the knowledge, the scripture in John 8:32 says Truth can heal, deliver, and set us free. That was why Jesus said “you will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Meaning prayer, fasting and others are not what sets free but the truth. whatever is done based on the knowledge of the Truth is only what can set people free.

No wonder a lot of people pray like praying machine, fast like fasting robot, give sacrificially, and do so many other spiritual activities but without result over years. The reason is because whatever they have done was wrongly applied. It was not based on the knowledge of the truth, here right knowledge (The Truth) is very important. Jesus said for deliverance, breakthrough etc, you must know and apply the truth.

We need to grow deeper in the word of His Grace. That is the word of Truth. Apostle Paul said “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified. The word of Grace is the word of Truth and that is the word of God.



Reduce or rather put an end to struggles for breakthrough, empowerment, success, healing and deliverance etc. by “learning and application” of the word of Truth. Jesus is the Truth – John 14:6. His words are the words of Truth – Ephesians 1:13, 1 Timothy 2:15, James 1:18. Never forget that once you know the truth you have known breakthrough, success, healing, deliverance etc. why? “You will know the Truth and the TRUTH will set you FREE!

Say with me that “ I live in the truth, because truth is my true nature. Therefore, I’m triumphant over every situation, ever glowing in the spirit in Jesus name. Amen.
