Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. Ephesians 4:25
John 8:42-44 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word.44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode 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 of it.”Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;”
The Holy Spirit makes it clear in the above verse that lies can only be found on the lips of those who haven’t put off the old man with his deeds. The moment you become a child of God and shed the old man and his deeds, lying shouldn’t be part of you anymore. It then means that any Christian who still finds it easy to tell lie should check his or her salvation, because at the point of new birth, your nature changes from the nature of the devil whose authority you were under, to the nature of Christ, who is the Truth. The devil is revealed to be a liar in, then when you tell lie you just transferred lordship to the devil it is as important as this so flee John 8:44c When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Speaking the truth at all times is an attribute of the new man. In fact, this virtue is one of the defining characteristics of the new man. This is because the Spirit of Christ that births the new life of God in us when we become born again is the Spirit of truth. Declaring His nature, the Lord said in John 14:17:
“Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
It is clear from this scripture that the Holy Spirit dwells in all those who are born again, to teach and counsel us to walk in the truth always. He Himself said in 1John 2:27But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” To tell a lie is to intentionally make a false statement. Proverbs 6:16-19, lying is one of the seven abominations that God hates. Despite this fact, lying is still the most common sin, even amongst Christians. The reason this is so is because it is very easy to lie and also because many people do not consider lying to be a serious sin. Lying is a characteristic of the old nature we had before we became born again. Speaking on this, Colossians 3:9 says
1. Oh ye stronghold sin telling influencing me to lie in thy name of Jesus I cast you out
2. Ye the spirit of error strong ling with my will to be truthful you are a layer the lord choosing Jerusalem rebuke you in thy name of Jesus
3. Father, please fill me up with Your Spirit and cause me to walk in Your truth at all times.
4. Ye situations arrange from the pit of hell to push into lie you are a layer colas and die in thy name of JESUS
