Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
Did you catch that? He is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE!
THE WAY – the means by which you arrive at your destination. The “Way” is what following Christ was called at the time of the writing of Scripture. If you were “In The Way,” it meant that you were following the Messiah and His commandments, which would get you to the Father. (Acts 9:2; 19:9, et al)
THE TRUTH – The dictionary defines it as “that which is true or in accordance with the facts or reality.” He is Truth. No one who is walking contrary to the Truth can come to the Father.
On the other hand, Satan is the father of lies. The Scripture says that when the Devil speaks lies, he speaks his native tongue.
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth (Jesus/Yeshua
Do you really want to align yourself with the devil? Satan is pleased with you so long as you are going opposite to the Truth. (Hint – you do NOT want Satan to be pleased with you! ) His fight is not really with man. His battle is with the Way, the Truth, and the Life. When you start moving away from the path of darkness, Satan will tell you that you are worthless, that you will never change, that you will never be a good person, etc., etc., etc.
So, how do you counter Satan’s lying tongue? By taking each thought captive and replacing it with Truth. Counter with “I am a new creation.” ( 2 Corinthians 5:17). Or with “He that has begun a good work in me will be faithful to complete it.” (Philippians 1:6) Or “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13)
Satan HATES it when you quote Scripture to him! Make him hate being around you!
The LIFE – Knowing the Truth and living the Truth are two distinctly different concepts. No one comes to the Father unless he not only KNOWS the TRUTH but WALKS in TRUTH and LIVES the TRUTH.
Today, work on living the truth every minute. Pull back when you catch yourself starting to participate in Satan’s work. Refuse to allow anything to take up residence in your mind, heart, and spirit that is not True. (Remember, what stays in your innermost being , whether good or bad, will eventually come out in your actions.) Then you will begin to look more and more like a child of the Most High God.
